Recent guest reviews

In spite of booking their smallest room, we were so happy, it is bright, fresh, with homely atmosphere with refreshing green, birds etc. well maintained property. Rooms were very well equipped with good quality towels, soaps, hair-dryer, tea/coffee/microwave/coffee-maker/electric-tea-kettle etc.

We stayed with Laura and Garvin for 4 nights in March and had a fantastic stay. The Mauna Kea room is beautiful and enormous so plenty of room to spread out with a lovely bathroom and a small kitchen area with everything we needed. The property is beautiful and really well maintained with a lovely outside seating area and hot tub and we really appreciated the banana muffins which Laura made for us. The property is in a really quiet location about 10 minutes outside of Hilo and ideal for exploring the east coast. Maholo to you both for a lovely stay and for introducing me to your beautiful horses!

Mahalo for a wonderful stay at a truly beautiful B & B! We appreciated the unexpected upgrade to the fantastic Hilo Bay Suite, what a delight! Doing yoga on the covered lanai watching the sunrise on the ocean was magical. We received a warm welcome from owner Garvin. All our needs were met so had no need to bother him during our restful stay. Highly recommend this place!

Garvin and Ms.Laura were very helpful. Always willing to answer questions. Super nice people! Room was clean, quite and had a beautiful view of Hilo Bay. Driving distance to many beautiful sites. Would I stay again? Oh Yes!

We just enjoyed 2 wonderful days at this beautiful B&B. The ownersn were extremely friendly and gracious, the room and grounds were beautiful, a nice breakfast was provided each morning. Would definitely stay here again!

Island Goode’s thoroughly spoiled us for the rest of our trip. Our room was spacious with local decor, the king bed with adjustable firmness gave me the best sleep in ages and Gavin and Laura are the most hospitable hosts you could hope for. When they saw we were trying to dry our swimmers and towels in the bathroom they brought in a fan when they serviced the room to help them dry faster. The room has everything you could need, including a jacuzzi out the back which sadly we didn’t find the time to use. You do need a car to be able to stay here as it’s about a 10 minute drive into Hilo. Mahalo Gavin and Laura for a lovely stay.

I was visiting Hilo to see my son graduate and my only regret was that I wasn't staying here longer. I booked the Hilo Bay room and loved sitting on the lanai eating their fresh breakfast looking out over the peaceful scenery. The room is decorated beautifully and has everything you could need, from the Lazyboy in the sitting area to the kitchen area, bagged ice, ironing board - there was nothing overlooked to make the guest feel at home. The bed is adjustable for comfort but didn't need to as it was so comfy. Loved the frogs singing me to sleep and the birds singing me awake. I was staying on my own and felt very safe and secure. Loved the extra touch of a Christmas wreath on the door. Met Laura and Garvin as I was leaving, what friendly and welcoming people. Top class people, top class accommodation.

The property and accommodations are beautiful. It's in a great setting with a nice view of the ocean. Laura and Garvin are sweet. However their welcome e-mail is not very welcoming. It has lots of rules and it seems to be written by people who are frustrated by guests who've broken them. As a new guest you have to shoulder the hostility that was intended for previous rule-breakers. Right after booking I received that e-mail and it made me reconsider my booking. But of course, the reservations are non-refundable. This wasn't entirely clear when I was booking through That lack of clarity may be the fault of and not Island Goode's, but in the end, the fact that it's non-refundable, doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. Having said all that, our concerns were lifted when we arrived. They are very sweet and the room we stayed in (The Mauna Kea Room) felt like staying in a comfortable home. It was spacious. It was nice laying out on a hammock and reading a book. And the morning sun reflecting off the ocean is beautiful.

Very humble and Genuinely friendly hosts. They have done an (beyond) amazing job transforming this property from a barren land to a very relaxing home away from home. Thank you for taking such a good care of your guests

We had a wonderful stay in the „Ginger Room“. You have ocean view from your lanai and the garden is very nice! Their cute cats come for a visit from time to time. Very kind and warm-hearted hosts. Would definitely recommend it!
