Featured Reviews From Our Guests

TripAdvisor Room Review: ★ The Bay House delivers a spectacular breakfast, the warmest hospitality, the most comfortable bed and a divine view of Hilo Bay. The hosts provide shelves of reference books, a dreamy hot tub and umbrellas, if needed. Highly recommended.


Google Room Review: ★ The Hilo Bay House was the fourth B&B on our 3 1/2 week Hawaii trip and it was by far the best. Amazing bay view, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and wonderful hosts. Plus: If you stay there, the nearby ‘Cafe Pesto’ is a must-go!

Stayed in February 2018


Facebook Room Review:  We enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Tina & Tom Feb 2018. The trip to the Big Island was a birthday present to myself. They are the most gracious of hosts and the rooms are beautifully decorated in an Hawaiian island theme from the quilts on the beds to the art on the walls. The breakfast is so nicely presented and very tasty too. Our every need was well taken care of during our stay at the Bay House Bed and Breakfast. Do yourself a favor and stay here during your next visit to Hilo. Thank you Tina and Tom.
