We stayed at the Bay House for two nights in late February and found everything first rate. Arriving in early evening after a long series of flights from the east coast, we were delighted to find the the moon shining on Hilo Bay just ourside our deck and the soothing sounds of the waves lapping on the rocks. The B&B is well located within walking distance of Hilo's bay-front main street. The room were very nicely decorated. The host was pleasant and helpful but not intrusive. Each morning, a tropical continental breakfast is laid out featuring Hawaiian fruits and juices, good pasteries, etc. It was nice that the coffee was set up the night before so that I, as an early riser, could go to the common area, push the button on the coffee machine, and soon have a cup of "get up and go." The price, about $100 or so, was a bargain. The ultimate recommendation is that we would go back.

just got back from our trip yesterday. in addition to the bay house, we stayed in what is generally acclaimed to be the best hotel on oahu and one of the best resorts on the big island - the beds in the bay house were the most comfortable of all - great pillow top mattresses and superb pillows. plus you can't beat the bay breeze flowing through the palms. our family occupied all 3 rooms and all were extremely clean and nicely decorated. tina, the innkeeper, was a wonderful hostess, who respected our privacy, but was was available for a friendly conversation and advice when we needed it. plus she went out of her way, TWICE, in returning left articles. she has great kids, too. the view at breakfast was unbeatable, and the food was fresh and light. totally private and no significant noise from either the road or airport to report. the perfect inn.

A warm welcome, a good bottle of wine to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and cozy, comfortable surroundings right on the bay. What more could we ask? Top it of with Tina's great breakfast board, and we were set for a day of exploring Hilo and Volcano Park. A great place to stay.
Thanks, Tina.
