We stayed at this B&B just north of Hilo for two nights. Our "Hilo Bay" room had the view of the bay at the foot of the bed. The room was nice sized with a King sized Sleep Number bed, satellite TV, large bathroom, fridge, toaster, table chairs, couch, etc. We were served a yummy breakfast (eggs, pancakes, and tons of fresh fruit) each morning at what ever time we requested, outside on our lanai.
Garvin and Laura were wonderful host/hostesses giving us suggestions for things to do on the Big Island and places to eat. All great suggestions! The room was filled with lots of books on Hawaiian culture etc. if you wanted to research some more on your own.
The wild life abounded with frogs "chirping" all night long as the rain fell on the tin roof outside our open windows.
What more could you ask for at a Bed and Breakfast? A comfy bed and a yummy breakfast... with a pleasant couple running the B&B to boot.
