Island Goode’s thoroughly spoiled us for the rest of our trip. Our room was spacious with local decor, the king bed with adjustable firmness gave me the best sleep in ages and Gavin and Laura are the most hospitable hosts you could hope for. When they saw we were trying to dry

Aloha and thank you for the five star review. Thanks for noticing the “Sleep Number” beds. We have them in all of our rooms. Thanks for noticing our large rooms, and Laura’s magic touch with the décor. To future guests, We do have a 3D walk around of all our rooms on Island Goode’s website to give you a better feel of the rooms, and to make the right choice for you when booking a room. Mahalo for staying with us and hope to see you again soon!

I was visiting Hilo to see my son graduate and my only regret was that I wasn't staying here longer. I booked the Hilo Bay room and loved sitting on the lanai eating their fresh breakfast looking out over the peaceful scenery. The room is decorated beautifully and has

Thank you for the great 5 star review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Thanks for noticing the room deco and the extras that we put into the room to make your stay feel more like home. To future guests, we do have a 3D walk around of our rooms on our website. This will give you a much better feel of the entire room, bathroom and lanai (patio) areas. Hope to see you soon!

The property and accommodations are beautiful. It's in a great setting with a nice view of the ocean. Laura and Garvin are sweet. However their welcome e-mail is not very welcoming. It has lots of rules and it seems to be written by people who are frustrated by guests who've

Thank you for the nice review. We do try and make your stay with us as pleasant as possible. Just to let future guests know, all of our rooms have private entry and private bathrooms, so you are not living in our home but your own private part of the house. Also, thank you for clarifying for me via email that you did not book your stay with Hotels.com, but booked directly with Island Goode’s on our website. We do have a 30 day before arrival cancellation policy, it’s just that you had made your reservation 18 days before arrival. Sorry that you felt the Confirmation letter was not as welcoming as you would have liked. There’s no “hostility” at Island Goode’s, and we would never make you “shoulder” this. The Confirmation/Welcome letter serves two purposes: The first purpose is to thank you for your reservation and to give the well informed and organized guests instructions on how to navigate the property and to locate their “Easy-Self-Check-In” packet. The second purpose is to thank you for your reservation and give the not so well informed/organized ones, who do no research, extra information that they might need before they arrive. No one likes surprises upon arrival, especially the uninformed! If you are reading this, you fall into the well informed percentage and have no worries about your stay with us at Island Goode’s.

Very humble and Genuinely friendly hosts. They have done an (beyond) amazing job transforming this property from a barren land to a very relaxing home away from home. Thank you for taking such a good care of your guests

We had a wonderful stay in the „Ginger Room“. You have ocean view from your lanai and the garden is very nice! Their cute cats come for a visit from time to time. Very kind and warm-hearted hosts. Would definitely recommend it!

Aloha, The Hilo Bay Room, The Ginger Room and The Mauna Kea Room are located on the ground floor with no steps to climb. All our rooms have private entries and private baths. All rooms offer an optional breakfast (please go to our website or Google (Island Goode's). The 3 story tower (The Tower in The Trees) is a new addition. There are two rooms in the tower. The 1st Story which is at the ground floor level, and the 3rd Story (two flights of stairs) which is an awesome experience with ocean, Hilo Bay views and mountain views. We recommend traveling light if you are booking the 3rd story. There is no baggage service.

What is your policy on Infants ?
We have updated our Child Policy: Children are restricted (below 18 years). All three of our B & B rooms are on the first floor with no steps to climb. However, we have added a three story tower and we have steep ravines with running streams on both sides of the property.
