Starting from our booking to our leaving from our stay the Bay House was fantastic! Booking on their hotel website was simple and they provided us with confirmation VERY promptly which made us feel secure that our payment had been received and booking made final. When we arrived (exhausted from early morning bus trip) the lovely hostess, Tina greeted us...

We recently enjoyed 2 nights at the Bay House B&B in Hilo. Breakfast was eaten on our private lanai overlooking the bay watching the cruise ship and outrigger activity. Our room was beautifully decorated and clean and comfortable. Free wireless too! It was only a short walk to downtown Hilo to visit the museums, shops and restaurants. Tina, our host,...

I stayed at the Bay House Bed and Breakfast for a week. From the reservation process through the entire stay, my experience could not have been better. The hosts made themselves available on an as needed basis, offering insights and advice about the island, restaurants, and the town, and when I wanted to be left alone, they left me alone....

We stayed at the Bay House for three nights (09/25-27). The host/owner greeted us and explained everything we needed to know. We also did not see the hostess during our stay, but we actually prefer that, so that was good. The breakfasts were excellent! Always fresh and different. The view from our room was great, as we looked out onto...

We only spent one night at the Bayhouse B&B. The layout/design of the rooms, common area, was very nice. Really comfy double recliner/couch, and the bed was good. You will have your own covered parking here. Breakfast was great and nicely presented. Some of the other reviewers mentioned that there was not a lot of communication from the owner once...

My husband , father and I booked two rooms at the Bay House for 3 nights. It was perfect! We were so comfortable! The location is perfect! The owners were very warm and welcoming. They even gave us extra yummies in our rooms, like chocolates and potato chips. If I am ever in Hilo again, this is where I will...

My wife and I stayed at the Bay House on our honeymoon and had a fabulous stay! We were greeted with such warmth, open arms, and the Aloha attitude. Our room was perfect- so comfortable and cozy, and right on the ocean. Tina was extremely nice to us and truly interested in our stories of our vacation. She cooked us...

We started off our trip in Hilo, a town not known for its many accommodations. We really had only a few requirements - clean, affordable place to sleep at night while we explored Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park during the day. We had never stayed at a B&B and were uncertain about the idea of staying in someone else's house but...

We stayed at the Bay House for the final two nights of our visit to the Big Island. My husband and I were completely satisfied with everything about this place. We stayed in the Harbor Room which was beautifully decorated (as were each of the other two rooms), clean, and spacious. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the sound...
