We chose Bayview on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disapointed. It's in a residential/agricultural area about 10-15 miles south of Kailua and about 1,000 feet up the side of the volcano. Great view of the ocean and a relatively short drive to a choice of beaches. Pat, the very nice owner/hostess serves a nice variety of breakfasts, heavy on great fruit, most of which she grows. Rooms are small, but comfortable. Not air-conditioned, but a ceiling fan and ocean breezes cool them pretty well. A number of good restaurants nearby if you don't want to drive back to the touristy part of the island for dinner. Warning: Don't scratch the Bayview cat's tummy!
