Overpriced, cold and old... if I had 3 words then these is what I choose. Inhospitable and v poor breakfast. What a let down. Will not return. Was desperate to find a quiet getaway and sadly was very disappointed. There is another hotel nearby which is much much better value. Avoid.

My husband and I stayed here when we visited the Big Island. Maureen is an absolute delight and very helpful with things to see and places to go. The house is beautiful and very clean. It is located conveniently close to the airport, downtown Hilo, and a short drive to Volcano National Park. It is also a short walk or...

My husband and I stayed at Maureen's while in Hilo. She is a gracious hostess. Her breakfasts are wonderful (she got us hooked on some really great Hawaiian syrups)! She was very informative about where to go and hooked us up with a great place to get lunch and to have your laundry done while you go and cruise the...

I highly recommend this place. Maureen is really helpful and kind. Bed and bathroom in perfect conditions altough you share the bathroom with others. Well located: In front of a beach nice to swim and see sea turtles. Breakfast delicious with typical fruits and with the opportunity of meeting people. Excellent place!

Maureen is a lovely and kind host who provided lots of information about Hilo; where to go, and what to do. She made delicious breakfast every morning with pancakes, waffles and one morning with a quiche, and always with fresh fruit and coffee. Her place is unique and quaint and feels homely and welcoming. Beds are comfortable and facilities clean....

Maureen is a most wonderful host. The breakfasts were perfect, the coffee great, and she was a wealth of knowledge on how to make our stay in Hawaii better. I love the big old home, and it was the best night's sleep we have ever had away from home. The lagoon across the street was a perfect, idyllic swimming hole....

Maureen’s is a great place to stay if you like comfortable home surroundings, and it's just a couple of miles outside Hilo along the coast. The house is a very big bungalow style with screened verandas. Since the climate is tropical much of the communal area is open to the outdoors, but screen to keep out bugs. Since the ocean...

Maureen could not be friendlier or more helpful with tips . The location is across from an amazing calm protected swimming spot. The accommodations are old and need help. New pillows to me are essential to guests who are after all here to sleep. New bedding too would really help
