Mary was a wonderful host. Beds were super comfortable. Very helpful as things to do and see in Hilo especially on very rainy day. Cats Shakespeare and Asher were welcoming! Breakfast on the lanai was great.

The views were wonderful, the rooms were perfect, had a wonderful time just enjoying the views of the ocean. Mary was a wonderful host and always there to answer questions and interact with the guests at breakfast time and the breakfast was also great, just enough to get us going for the day. The location was a little hard to...

I just experienced a fantastic trip to the big island. The Ala Kai B&B was a fabulously enjoyable place to stay. Mary the owner prepares some of the best breakfast dishes I've tasted. She is extremely personable and a joy to talk with. I stayed in the Bamboo Room, which was very private with a great bamboo / Hawaiian motif....

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we spent nearly three weeks exploring the big island. Our home was Ala Kai and it was wonderful. Early mornings on the deck were peaceful, sipping coffee, watching for whales and smelling breakfast cooking in the kitchen. On special days, Mary would bake bread. We sat in the garden and tried to...

This friendly, comfortable B&B is located for easy access to the sights on the east side of the Big Island. The house is oceanfront with access to hiking trails. The owner, Mary is very nice, accommodating and a good source of local information. We were very late arriving due to a missed connection but she took good care of us....

The Ala Kai Bed and Breakfast felt like a second home for my father and I while we were on holiday on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Aloha suite provided the perfect set-up for the two of us, with two separate bedrooms and a shared bathroom with two sinks. The rooms were nicely decorated, and provided us with a...

We liked it so much, we already booked two weeks next year! Our hostess, Mary, was terrific with helpful hints and a wonderful breakfast every morning. The breakfast was provided on the lanai with a view of the ocean. The Ohana Cottage is actually a two bedroom house with all the amenities including kitchen ware, bedding, TV, wifi, etc. It...

Our hostess Mary, gave very helpful advice regarding nearby dining and activities. The Sun. a.m. farmer's market was great fun. I'm confident we chose the best botanical garden with her guidance. Our room was nicely decorated, clean, & comfortable. Breakfast offered several choices in a comfortable & scenic setting.

You really must spend a few days on this side of the Island. The Ala Kai is the perfect place to do so. Mary is an excellent host. She greeted us upon arrival and made our stay wonderful. Her breakfasts are sublime! She picks fruit from her own garden. She will give you ideas and information about the area (waterfalls,...

Ala Kai is a great B&B that served as an excellent base for traveling in the Hilo side of Hawaii. Mary is a wonderful hostess and makes a delicious and filling breakfast each day.
