We showed up unannounced on the doorstep tired, dirty, and hungry. To our immense pleasure we were promptly welcomed into the Orchid Room. We had access to laundry and were given excellent advice on a Thai restaurant within walking distance. The bathroom was very large and the whole property clean. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying here for three nights during our visit to the Big Island. We were greeted with a listing of local sights and points of interest in the area which we really appreciated as first-timers to the area. The B&B is located in a great spot-within minutes you can walk downtown and access... More

This was fabulous. Mathew and Danny are the perfect hosts. The room was ready when we arrived at 3 pm. We had just finished a "Doors Off" helicopter ride over the volcano. WOW. The James Michner Room was wonderful with a beautiful balcony to see the wonderful landscaping and the chorus of birds and frogs, depending on the time of... More

Spent two days there in the lava room. This room is very large and newly renovated in the basement. The double pane window and sliding door kept the frog noises down to a minimum. Really enjoyed access to washer and dryer after being on vacation for 1 1/2 weeks. That was unexpected. The breakfast with all the fresh fruit and... More

Surprisingly spacious, private rooms in an historic Hilo home, minutes from downtown and the beach. Dine on your private deck or join others for a communal breakfast featuring local fruits and organic offerings in a laid-back "aloha" setting. If you love to fall asleep serenaded by frogs, waking to the chorus of birds and enjoying breakfast with the Koi, this... More

We usually don't tend to stay in bed and breakfasts as they can really vary in cleanliness and quality but we were in Hilo for the night and almost everything was booked. This place had one room. It was clean, a really nice space with a little balcony on every room free laundry in the basement. The owner could not... More

We stayed in the Lava room and were very happy with our choice of room and B&B. Danny and Matthew have a fantastic eye for detail and know how to feel people at home in their B&B. I thought it was very clever of them to create a community shelf where people can leave anything they don't want to take... More

Our stay in Hilo was the high point of our vacation on the Big Island, mostly because of our stay at Hilo Bay Hale. Most importantly, Danny and Matthew were incredibly helpful, warm, inviting and responsive to our needs. Little touches such as a gift of cookies for our son helped make Christmas a terrifically nice occasion. Breakfast was always... More

Back for the fourth or fifth time. This time we tried another B&B just for the heck of it and left after one night to come back home to Hilo Bay Hale. Such a warm, inviting and comfy vibe. The cleanliness of the property and careful attention to detail in decor is testament to how much Matthew and Danny care... More

I don't have too much to add to all the other reviews. Danny and Matthew are great hosts. Anything we needed, they gave us. The place is right in downtown Hilo, and the house and grounds are full of character. We stayed in the Orchid Room right off the front. Great lanai with a fridge and spacious and clean bathroom.
