We stayed with Laura and Garvin for 3 nights, the room was spotless and roomy, the bed large and very comfortable. Breakfast, served on our private terrace, was a wonderful surprise : freshly baked pastries (cinnamon rolls, banana muffin etc.), a great selection of tropical fruits from their farm (pineapple, rambutan, lychees, mangoes etc.). Laura was also a great source of advice and tips; we possibly would not have gone to Richardson's beach without her recommendation. People will surely mention the frogs as a plague of Hilo but Garvin and Laura have installed double-glazed windows (and very good ventilators so it is never stuffy) so you don't hear a thing. I slept like a baby every night.
