My husband I and I spent 5 nights of our 15 night Big Island vacation at this charming B&B in Hilo. Proprietors Cheryl and Everell were wonderful hosts - they make you feel like family as soon as you walk into the house. Everell & Cheryl are very knowledgeable about the area so they will give you tips about places to visit, places to eat, vendor sponsored tours, etc.

The B & B is right on the bay in downtown Hilo. We had the corner, oceanfront room so we went to sleep to the sound of the waves. The room was quite large and had a table and chairs by the window so we could enjoy the view of the bay. The B & B is convenient to downtown and it's a short drive to Volcanoes Nat'l Park and other natural wonders, waterfalls, etc.. The house has been restored with modern conveniences, but it still retains the 1920's plantation style charm. Breakfast is very good and made fresh - they definitely send you on your way each morning full and ready to enjoy the natural wonders of the area.

Look no further than Hilo Bay Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast for accommodations if you are visiting Hilo!

Room Tip: Corner room is large and has windows on 2 sides. Stunning view of the bay. You can see cruise ships approaching the bay from this room.

This is a great base for visiting the lush, tropical side of the Big Island. You can explore the waterfalls, botanical gardens, and beach parks by day, then walk to Hilo for dinner, and sleep to the sound of the waves. The hosts, Everell and Cheryl, are super nice, and offer all sorts of nice touches. They keep snacks and coffee out during the day, and you can help yourself to drinks in the fridge. They have snorkels, flashlights, umbrellas, and beach towels that you can borrow. A very laid-back and comfortable place. It feels like home.

This was a lovely B&B, The bed was comfortable and the room was facing the ocean, so that we heard the waves crashing all night --- a wonderful sound. It was walking distance from the town of Hilo with its many restaurants

The hosts were nice and accommodating.

I would recommend this as a well-run B&B

Room Tip: A room facing the ocean

Wonderful little B&B very close (walkable) to downtown, tourist area of Hilo. Our room faced the ocean, so we slept to the sounds of waves crashing, always with a nice breeze. The hosts, Everell and Cheryl, were wonderful and accommodating. There is no real fixed time for breakfast. Although we chose to rent our own car, they have rentals and if you fly into Hilo airport, they will pick you up.

Hilo is a laid back, well preserved big town, free from packaged tourism and this place makes a perfect fit. A comfortable, historic wooden home with beautiful renovated rooms, extremely accommodating hosts and a location in walking distance of downtown. Breakfast is served at separate tables in a bay front dining nook and your hosts will prepare pretty much anything you want. We will be back!
