Certificate of Excellence
The Bay House B&B has it all, with three oceanfront guest rooms, comfortably nestled in a serene jungle setting, perched above beautiful Hilo Bay. Just a 5 minute walk across the "Singing Bridge" and you are in historic downtown Hilo. Convenient yet secluded. THE place to stay in Hilo. Our spacious private rooms are superbly appointed. Each oceanfront room has a full private bath, King or Queen sized bed (Queen in the Bay Room only), ceiling fan, cable television, free WiFi, and a private ocean front lanai. Also for our guests enjoyment is a cliff side jacuzzi, where you can gaze upon the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean. In the morning, you are served an individual basket of tropical fruits and local pastries, cereal, juices, yogurts, eggs, jam, coffee and teas, all served buffet style in the guests' common area. Take it back to your oceanfront lanai and enjoy the fruits of paradise. Free onsite covered parking.

Our recent trip to Hilo was made perfect at the Bay House Bed and Breakfast. The hospitality of Tom and Tina was over and beyond our expectations. The rooms are simply lovely, beautifully decorated , with extra comfy beds. We spent lots of time on the lanai watching the ocean

We stayed 5 nights in the Palm Room. The room is south side of the house. There’s a nice sound of crashing waves and also, since the house is near the Hawaii Belt Road a fairly constant road noise. The bed was comfortable and the towels in particular soft and bright white. We

We stayed here 3 nights as a couple and had a lovely stay. The location is excellent - on the bay, only a couple of mins drive to the center of Hilo. Each room has a lanai looking out over Hilo Bay. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with enough space to spread out.
