Quite simply perfect. Only a few minutes walk from the beach, we stayed in the stand-alone unit. The finish of the unit was something like you would expect in a top boutique hotel, local hardwood floors and finish, amazing bathroom, beautiful hardwood bed, small private patio/deck. The communal area is a large covered deck with lots of seating and areas to hang out. All of this is complemented by the host who is a genuinely great guy who really cares that you enjoy your stay in Hilo. Breakfast really lives up to the photos posted on trip advisor, the best of our two week stay around the island. While the accommodation isn't cheap, and was the most we paid for a B&B, it was still the best value due to the quality and how welcome and relaxed we felt. I would recommend to anyone - our 4-year old boy fell in love with Steve the owner who loaned him some toy cars and a boogie board the day we arrived! We didn't want to leave....
