The Bay House B&B has it all, with three oceanfront guest rooms, comfortably nestled in a serene jungle setting, perched above beautiful Hilo Bay. Just a 5 minute walk across the "Singing Bridge" and you are in historic downtown Hilo. Convenient yet secluded. THE place to stay in Hilo. Our spacious private rooms are superbly appointed. Each oceanfront room has a full private bath, King or Queen sized bed (Queen in the Bay Room only), ceiling fan, cable television, free WiFi, and a private ocean front lanai. Also for our guests enjoyment is a cliff side jacuzzi, where you can gaze upon the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean. In the morning, you are served an individual basket of tropical fruits and local pastries, cereal, juices, yogurts, eggs, jam, coffee and teas, all served buffet style in the guests' common area. Take it back to your oceanfront lanai and enjoy the fruits of paradise. Free onsite covered parking.

We stayed 5 nights in the Palm Room. The room is south side of the house. There’s a nice sound of crashing waves and also, since the house is near the Hawaii Belt Road a fairly constant road noise. The bed was comfortable and the towels in particular soft and bright white. We

We stayed here 3 nights as a couple and had a lovely stay. The location is excellent - on the bay, only a couple of mins drive to the center of Hilo. Each room has a lanai looking out over Hilo Bay. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with enough space to spread out.

Want a waterfront room with waves lappin or crashing outside your window? This is the spot. The hosts were more than accommodating with recommendations and assistance. They took good care of us. The breakfasts were made to order not only for us, but for our son and

No not really. This house sits right on the edge of a cliff and there is basically no yard. I do believe they request and say it's not really appropriate for children.
