We had a wonderful stay at the Shipman House in Hilo, HI. Gary and Barbara are perfect hosts. Each morning they had a nice spread of fresh fruits grown on their property, tasty baked goods from their own kitchen and an unlimited amount of fresh coffee and juice. We stayed in the guest house in the room closest to the forest. There was no need for the earplugs we were offered. We enjoyed listening to the tree frogs serenading us each night. Barbara was a wealth of knowledge when it came suggestions for what to see and do while in the area. Gary gave us great directions and instructions on seeing the best views of the north coast. As we drove around the area and saw the other choices in the Hilo area, we were very happy we chose the Shipman House B&B.
