The Inn is beautiful. The people running it are friendly but very respectful of your privacy. I would recommend that you make your trek to the Inn for the first time during the daytime when it is light outside. The road is well-marked but narrow and winding. It is in the countryside but within 10 minutes of being in the heart of Hilo. It truly gives you a sense of paradise. Because it's in the rainforest, if you are prone to mosquito bites, you may want to wear repellent. We kept the balcony door open and it attracted several mosquitos. The Hilo side of the island is not touristy like the Kona side of the island. The only downside is that after almost a week, the breakfasts were a little mundane. We have been to other bed and breakfasts that served different items every day but although the fruits and waffles were yummy, there was no variety.
