We enjoyed the Bay House. We had never tried a B & B before, but it was great. Breakfast was left out for us each morning and it was a wonderful start to the day. Rooms were clean and furnished tastefully. The bed was the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept in...(including my own). Yes, you can hear the tree...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bayhouse and would reccomend it. It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and my concern was that we would not have enough privacy. It was perfect! We met people only in passing but enough to either meet again or not. Tom and Tina Jimenez, who own and run the Bayhouse...

My husband and I fell in love with the Bay House Inn! While this place has many strengths, the top three things it has going for it are it's location right next to the ocean, it's proximity to downtown and the accomodating owners. It was great to fall to sleep with the sound of the waves. The hot tub between...

we spent 3 very enjoyable days in The Bay House, overlooking Hilo Bay. The rooms are spacious and all beautifully decorated with hand-made quilts and comfortable furniture and we had a great balcony with great views of the early-morning surfers! Breakfast was generous and tastey, and there is plenty of info on local attractions available. Our only advice would be...

Beautiful B&B close to Hilo Central, with a scenic view from the lanai toward Hilo Bay area. The owners are very approachable and couldn't have done more to help us enjoy our stay - they also have an extensive island library available to all the guests, and books in your room for your own usage - first class. They even...

the owners couldn't have been nicer. they left us an extra blanket for our baby without us asking. they provided good travel recommendations without being intrusive. the breakfasts in the morning were very nicely done, with fruit, banana bread, cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, juice, and toast all available. the rooms were nicely appointed with views of the bay. though...

We stayed at Bay House for two nights during our vacation on the Big Island, and loved every second of it. I wish we could have stayed longer. The owners are welcoming, there if you need them, but otherwise you would not know they're even around. Our room was comfortable and beautiful, small enough to be cozy but big enough...

My husband and I stayed here after searching on the internet at what was available in Hilo. It was our first trip to Hawaii, and we were excited to see the sights and sounds of everything Hilo had to offer. During the day we enjoyed our stay at the Bay house, thought it was a bit pricey, but were willing...

The other reviews say it all, so I'll not repeat too much. We stayed in the Palm Room and it was beautiful. The ocean views alone are well worth the price....we fell asleep to the sound of the waves rolling onto shore and watched the sun rise from our bed. It was the perfect place to end our 2 week...

Look no further than The Bay House when you are looking for lodging in Hilo. The sun sparkling off the bay just outside your window matches your sparkling clean and spacious room, decorated in the spirit of the islands. The unobtrusive care provided by your hosts makes you feel like you are in a magical place.
