My friend & I had a lovely 2 night stay with Claudia. The room & en-suite were spacious, clean & nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, home made muesli & muffins. The house is close to Richardson's Beach, surrounded in a tropical garden & within easy access to town with good roads to the volcano & other attractions.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. Claudia is a delight, and takes great care of her guests. She made us a wonderful breakfast every morning with lots of coffee. She then took the time to sit with us and share her advice for the activities we had planned for the day. Her advice was spot... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our 2 nights here. Claudia is a fantastic cook and kept us company at breakfast with her friendly stories and advice. When I told her I was wheat-free she had no problem accommodating my needs the next morning. The place is a little tricky to find at first (hint: it's not the house with... More

I can't say enough positive things about this bed and breakfast and it's owner, Claudia. As soon as you arrive (rent a car), you are welcomed by lush immaculately landscaped gardens. The house is large, clean, inviting and very well decorated. you get fresh towels every day and new sheets if you stay longer than two days. Claudia welcomed us... More

If you plan to visit Hilo and are looking for a B&B consider staying with Claudia “At the Beach with Friends”. Across a quiet road from the black sand beach of Richardson State Park, the setting is stunning and very convenient. The house is large and tropical, reminiscent of our years in South East Asia. We stayed in the Lagoon... More

Beautiful setting with lovely garden just across the road from one of the many beach parks in Hilo. Freshly cooked healthy breakfasts daily and tea coffee... More

This was a most delightful B&B. Home cooked, healthy breakfasts, coffee & tea made available all day, a lovely beachside but intimate rainforest oasis location around a water and fish filled lava tube made this a gem of a place to stay. Claudia, the owner is simply delightful, and so accommodating...she loves a chat and provides excellent local knowledge about... More

The previous reviews and pictures made us choose this property and weren't disappointed. With only three rooms, it was more intimate than larger properties. Claudia enthusiastically greeted us and gave us the grand tour. Even though it is across from a Hilo beach park, the grounds are surrounded by well manicured jungle grounds with a fish pond. Our room was... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Bamboo room last week. The room is very comfortable and spacious. We loved the sliding door that opened up to a beautiful tropical garden. We didn't mind the singing bugs at night...didn't keep us up at all...it was actually unique! Breakfast was delicious and Claudia was very friendly and helpful. We... More
