Cynthia, the owner was very nice.
The facilities were lacking and I would give it one star.
The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and restaurants were within walking distance.
The outside appearance
Staff meet us at check in said we had to be in by midnight. Facilities were durty. Spiers webs all over. Under beds and corner were never sweeped. Compforter on bed had a visible stain that wor ride us. One bed squiked alot. One bed in a room for 2 was to small. Kitchen facilities don't know never stayed for breakfast. Breakfast was toast and coffee and tangerine. Pretty sad. Never will recommend to stay there.
The neighborhood was so so but accessibility to necessities and the sights was great.
We booked a room with a shared bathroom, but Cynthia moved us to suite with a private bedroom. It was great, friendly stay with a nice chat opportunities during a delicious breakfast :)
Great staff, friendly and great advice. It was nice to chat with other travellers as well. Breakfast was yummy!
Poor quality washing facilities, old bathroom - took ages for hot water to start in the shower.
Shared bathroom with toilet for 3 rooms!!
- Cynthia is a really great host - it was nice to exchange with other travellers during breakfast - Excellent breakfast - Good location
Cynthia is a gracious host.
Owner was very friendly
Hilo was very Warm during our stay.Room is upstairs and should have a room air conditioer since the fans were drafty and inadequate. The Bathroom is old and rundown...Faucets didn't work & interior should be remodeled.
The host (Cynthia) is very kind and helpful. An ideal spot for meeting fellow travelers.
It was clean and the owner was very friendly ans helpful. We totally enjoyed our stay.
What can I say? This place is just simply fantastic! It's a simple looking house with really nice, beautiful tropical-styled interiors. The double-bed bedroom comes with a tv & so many sockets to plug your devices. It also comes with 2 powerful fans & 2 fan-aircon like devices that makes sleeping comfortable even in the hot tropical climate. And not only that, but the bed is also very comfortable to sleep in as well. You also get 3 sets of towels in case you forgot to bring one like me! The shared bathroom is very also clean, and the showers are powerful and heated! Perfect after a long day of hiking in the lava fields, or from Mt. Mauna Kea! It also comes with shampoo & a hair dryer! What a bonus! Their kitchen comes with a nice big refrigerator which you can store you groceries, and ice cream from safeway. It also has a microwave, a cooking stove & a coffee-maker complete so you can buy all those delicious Hawaiian coffee beans and have your coffee here! If you have a car, the parking here is not problem at all! There are around 5 rooms in the house and there's parking space for 4-5 cars so parking for me was never a problem. There's also laundry in the parking. The wifi is also fast and excellent. Perfect if you have some work, or have to check reports/stuff on a vacation! The location is also excellent! It's just 4 blocks away from the Puainako shopping center which contains a KTA store, a sack and save, Baskin robins, Mcdonalds, taco bell, jack-in the box and many more. So finding food is never a problem! And finally are your hosts, Cynthia and her daughter Natasha. They're so very nice, approachable and hospitable! Cynthia even gets up to make breakfast & coffee for her guests. So you can have breakfast with everyone here, tell them your day, share stuff and so on. It feels like home!
- 6 nights wasn't enough!! You really need more time if you really want to get a more extensive feel of Hilo and Big Island!
Kind host, good breakfast, room spacious, great place to meet other travellers
- bathroom is outside the room whereas it was written "private". - Room and bathroom are not clean. If you look under the bed or in the corners you'll find dust, stains and spider webs. Fortunately the bed linen is more or less clean - old furnitures - it smells really really bad in the communal parts probably due to the cats/dogs staying downstairs -> Expensive (117$/night all included) for this standing.
Cynthia is a great host. Beds were very comfortable and all guests were made to feel welcome. Kitchen facilities were perfect for our needs. Located close to supermarkets, airport for ease of travel.
Hot water tank is limited meaning cold showers are likely.
Friendly and helpful owner. Flexible check out.
Not clean. No air condition. Modest breakfast. Good just for sleeping.
a chance to experience what a real Hawaiian home was like. The owner was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful...a joy!
If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, this is probably not your cup of tea. On the other hand, if you are seeking a quaint, comfortable, clean bed & breakfast that is centrally located and reasonably priced, you'll definitely enjoy it. The owner was absolutely awesome and the hospitality was outstanding! I would definitely recommend!
Host is very hospitable You feel at home Great location close to attractions and Hilo airport
Mostly minor: Shared Bathroom Fan cooler was not too effective Limited (though great) breakfast
The owner is very kind and makes you feel at home. Parking place at the apartment.
I suggest to install a signboard of the apartment on the street.
I'm from windward Oahu. Location, climate, and atmosfere is similar. The best of all it was quieter than I thought.
The lady who runs it is wonderful
Really hot room, and a small biting dog. Be very careful to stay outside the fence when trying to get owners attention. I opened the gate to knock on the door, and an angry tiny dog ran out and bit into my shin. His teeth were clamped shut, and touching under the skin, and he was really hard to shake off. I sliced between the two punctures, and cleaned it up fine, but will never wear shorts around crazy tiny dogs again. Great place to stay, but yell from outside the fence, unless you bring a steak.
This B&B is in a great location so that business or leisure travelers can easily get to their point(s) of interest. The accomodations are clean and comfortable. Our host was friendly and informative. I would recommend this to other travelers.
Cynthia is an amazing host. She's very friendly and she made me feel at home. She also gave me very useful info on what to do on the island. She cooks great pancakes! The room was cozy and clean. You will enjoy your stay!
Cynthia was very accommodating and friendly. Beds were very comfortable. Enjoyed our stay!
Didn't care to share a bathroom, but still was very nice.
