We stayed at Island Goode's for 3 nights and really enjoyed the location, the view, service and the wonderful breakfast. Garvin is extremely helpful and knowledgable about sightseeing activities and travel logisticts. Laura's breakfast was amazing! Each morning we'd get a generous portion and varieties of fruits(pineapple, papaya, pasion fruit, apple bananas), most of which come from their own fruit... More

My family loved our few nights' stay at Island Goode's while visiting the Hilo area in late December. Our rooms were extremely comfortable, quiet, and clean, the breakfasts were fabulous, and the views were lovely. The guava French toast was so yummy that we went to the bakery (about an hour away) and got a loaf of the bread to... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found Island Goode's. It really should be called Island Bests. I was sad about leaving Kona behind - the sun, the beach, the great Bed and Breakfast (that didn't serve breakfast!). But when Garvin met us at Island Goode's I quickly became excited for our four-night stay with him. The property is beautiful - farm... More

We started our mornings with a luxurious dip in the hot tub, followed by an amazing breakfast with fruit off trees on the property. Relaxing, comfortable, clean, wonderful hammocks, chairs on a shaded porch with views of the ocean and Mauna Kea. Spacious and pristine room. Sleep number bed with a great touch as we each prefer different hardness of... More

We stayed here for four nights and had a wonderful time! The breakfast was amazing each and every morning! Our favorite was the day we got to "sneak" and eat on the Hilo Bay room lanai as no one else was there that day. That room has a wonderful view of the bay! We stayed in the Mauna Kea room... More

Had to stay over in Hilo for the night and contacted Island Goode's. Since I was leaving early in the morning and arriving after 7 pm they put my breakfast in the room for me. This is a very nice location just outside of Hilo and the room was large with all the amenities I needed. Great nights sleep on... More

Let me add to the chorus of appreciation for this lovely oasis of peace and beauty. No reason to stay in Hilo - this is just 10 minutes from town, but feels quite away from it all. If you choose the Hilo Bay room, you'll have a lovely view, or if you choose our room, the Mauna Kea, you'll have... More

My partner and I stayed in one of the fully self contained apartments and very much enjoyed our stay. Island Goode's is a short drive into town and a welcome change from staying in a hotel. The apartment was spacious with separate bedroom, lounge room and bathroom. The bed was so so comfortable!! The apartment was serviced daily and on... More

My wife and I started our honey moon in the Big Island. We didn't like the hotels in the island that much, so we looked for BNBs. We got a recommendation to stay with Island Goode's. When we arrived, Garvin, who owns the place with his wife Laura, was there to welcome us, show us around, and answer every question... More

Garvin and Laura were warm, gracious, and knowledgeable hosts and worked hard to make sure we had a comfortable stay.
