My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the Ginger Room. Garvin and Laura were the perfect hosts. Laura greeted us when we arrived and gave us all the information we needed about our room and the area. The room and the grounds of the B&B were clean and well kept. The homemade breakfast was delicious! Our... More

Great convenient location. Easy to find. Google Maps took us to within 10 feet of the entrance no problem. Wonderful accommodation and delicious breakfast. Really well thought out and executed outdoor spaces. Very comfortable and spacious interior. The homemade breakfast with fresh baked muffins, scones and local fresh fruit were amazing and worth every penny. You could not go away... More

We stayed here for three nights (6/4/16-6/7/16) and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Clean well furnished room with a comfortable sleep number bed. Delicious breakfast and the friendly easygoing owners made us feel welcome. The owners are very detailed oriented, for example providing umbrellas if needed, explaining all the varied fruits served with breakfast etc. This place... More

An amazing and comfortable room, so thoughtfully equipped. Has everything you never knew you needed whilst on holiday. Excellent advice on how to see/what to do on the island meant that I maximised my 3 and a half days here. Perfectly placed for exploring the waterfalls around Hilo. Easy to get to nearby black sand beaches, and access to the... More

My husband and I spent 2 very relaxing days at this B& B. We are novices at this type of lodging, and oh my, Island Goode has set a high bar!! We used the hot tub, the sleep number bed, the available literature and history for Hilo; the owners were more than friendly and helpful, and we would LOVE to... More

We stayed for (2) nites in the Mauna Kea room in early March and all I can say is "what a fabulous stay". We arrived early enough in the day to meet with Laura and Garvin and to have them show us our room and the grounds. We loved their B&B. From the Lanai, you can see Hilo and the... More

Stayed at Island Goode's B&B for 3 nights last week and found the location to be convenient to downtown Hilo, the airport, and driving up the scenic road north of the B&B.

There is little else to say that has not already been stated about this lovely hideaway on a hill. Peaceful, quiet, lush, wonderful breakfasts on the lanai facing Hilo Bay. There is no better place to stay to tour the sights of the eastern part of the Big Island. After four nights we didn't want to leave! If we are... More

Stayed in the Mauna Kea room for 6 nights in mid-April 2016 with breakfast service entire duration. Spacious, clean and tastefully-decorated suite with private entry and patio. The breakfasts were always delicious and abundant, often consisting of hearty main breakfast entrees (e.g. scrambled eggs + sausage, quiche, etc.), great home-baked pastries (e.g. super light and airy blueberry muffins or yummy...
