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...

Hello everybody. Firstly, just ignore the previous review, it is really easy to find this house. Just go over the metal bridge from Hilo and turn right at the end of the crash barrier. The house is clearly marked "Bay House Bed and Breakfast" on a large sign on the gate. Easy. The hosts were both very helpfull and friendly,...

We found the Bay House through their website, which looks much better than the actual property. The hostess, tina, made absolutely no effort to help direct us to the property when we called her on the phone. She actually blamed us for arriving late when the airline lost our luggage! There are three houses on the street, and no indication...

We apologize if any of these comments are interpreted as being cavalier and not caring about our guests. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am tempted to apologize for being inhospitable, but I think not. I remember these two guests very well. We chatted with them for over half an hour. The wife had a very heavy Cuban...

We loved the Bay House B&B. We stayed in three different B&B's in the four days that we were on the Big Island during our honeymoon. This one was definitely our favorite (the other two were Serenity in Hawaii and Lotus Garden Cottage). This B&B was very very clean, safe, and comfortable. We stayed in the Harbor Room and loved...
