We had a wonderful time staying at this property. The house is just a few minutes drive from downtown Hilo, so the location is great. Our hosts were wonderful. Claudia is a great cook and our breakfasts were really tasting -- more food than we could eat. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable beds, pillows, linens, and...

My God, after my last terrible experience in Noosa, Australia, this place was a breath of fresh air!!! (If you are thinking of visiting Noosa, read my other review). My wife and I had two wonderful nights at this place while visiting Hawai'i on the tail-end of our honeymoon. The host 'Claudia' kindly upgraded our room upon arrival, due to...

We recently spent two nights at this B&B and had a very enjoyable experience. The room was spacious, clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed having breakfast each morning with Claudia and loved the freshly baked muffins and fresh fruit. The lush grounds of the B&B were neat and this was a great location for exploring the Hilo side of...

We stayed two nights at the B&B. The location is amazing and the B&B is gorgeous and it flows with the lush and all the beautiful sorroundings. The night frog sounds are relaxing and you get the feeling that you are sleeping in the middle of a far-away rainforest. Claudia is an extremely interesting person, good conversation and very good...

My husband and I were looking to stay somewhere away from the resorts and crowds. This is the perfect Island getaway if you want the "aloha spirit"! Our host was very pleasant, she provided maps and advice about where to go and the breakfasts were something to look forward to to get our day started. The ambiance of our room...

While this B and B was not the worst place that I have ever stayed, it was not up to the standards of a typical Bed and Breakfast. I prefer to stay in B&B's as opposed to hotels and I have stayed in many all over the country. The service here was by far the worst I've ever encountered. Claudia...

We absolutely loved this beautiful, comfortable place across the street from the ocean. The lush and unique landscaping and pond were a beautiful setting to enjoy from delightfully appointed common room. Three rooms make this an intimate setting to enjoy good comraderie of other guests. Hostess Claudia gave most excellent advice about activities and the area. She made fabulous fresh...

We stayed 5 days in January at the B&B. Its a great place. The room was beautyfull, clean and exactly so nice as at the website promoted. All rooms have a view at the private lagoon (we hade a peak). A short walk (2 min.) through the private rainforest garden will lead you to the tidepools and black beaches. We...

This place was like being in a rainforest, and yet we could still see the beach. There is a lot of lush greenery which makes one feel hidden in the tropics. Claudia was very helpful by providing us good advice on what to see and do on the island. She also made available those other small but handy items, such...

At the Beach with Friends was just that: I felt I was with friends. Claudia was great about taking care of my special dietary needs with no advanced warning! The grounds are lovely: it is a tropical paradise. The room was very comfortable. Richardson's Beach is great for swimming and meeting the wonderful people who live in the area. Also,...
