I still carry the excitement like a child at Christmas to appreciate what I have learned and loved here but to move on to the next place and the next part of the story.

Day 5 of our Hawaiian Adventure

... waterfalls and other interesting areas! By far one of the coolest things I have ever done! We drove to Volcano National Park after the helicopter tour. It was interesting to see the history behind some of the eruptions. We went to the Jagger Museum on the park. It has a look out point where you can see steam vents and the big crater. Also had examples of different types of lava flows and rocks. It was interesting, but somewhat anticlimactic after our helicopter ...

... that Hawaii is basically not the US and the personalities that you meet here are ones that are grounding and carry only the best energy of love, liberation and freedom. So, again, this is another message to never judge what a place may be like by the stories you here or the pictures you see and never judge what a person may be like by the look on their face or the clothes that cover their skin. Realise only the reality when you live it yourself.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hilo Honu Inn

      New Hilo B&B That's a Real Find

      from

      The new Hilo Honu Inn is a welcome addition here on the east coast of Hawaii Island. Lovingly and thoroughly restored, it retains its original old world comfort and charm with polished wooden floors, artistic bathroom tiles and old-style "waterfall" shower heads, yet boasts the convenience of modern facilities and exceptionally comfortable beds.

      Check this place out!

      from

      Hilo Hono Inn is the up and coming B & B. This place is going to be "on the map ", because of it's location, style and hosts. Owners,Billy and Gay, have put their heart and soul into providing their guests with Aloha, comfort, beauty and charm. It is also very clean. Having stayed in other locations on the island that seemed like they would be perfect, this place really delivered. I stayed in the Samari room, which was an absolute treat, but I would have loved any of the other rooms. Hilo is close to all the East Island attractions, so after a day of adventuring in the rain forest, the tide pools or Volcano, it was nice to come back to this cozy, artfully decorated home on a hill (with everything I need) , minutes from quaint downtown Hilo (walking distance if you're inclined) and then have the option to enjoy a variety of dining experiences, or a marvelous independant film theatre (The Palace), or Hilo Bay itself. Beautiful people, lodging, service, location. I felt like I had the best of the Aloha spirit; beauty in all it's possibilties.

      Amazing, you must stay!!

      from

      My husband and I travel frequently and this gem of a B&B in Hilo, was the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. Gay and Billy were awesome Innkeepers and made sure our stay was very enjoyable.

      The Inn was beautiful and decorated with Hawaii charm and style. The breakfast was very generous with homemade breads, local fruits, excellent smoothy's, etc.

      This B&B is diffenitly a winner, you can bet we will return again and again.

      The Best!

      from

      My friends and I stayed at the Hilo Honu Inn for a week in October and were so impressed! It is a really lovely inn. Gay and Bill are excellent hosts and provided great advice and insights on local spots for food and activities. The breakfast was out of this world - Bill is a an excellent cook! I think I got spoiled eating so well every morning. We stayed in the Bali Hai room and it was perfect. We loved the decor throughout the whole inn - Gay and Bill have great taste. The rainshower shower is awesome! So nice to return to after a day out exploring. I highly recommend this b&b and can't wait to stay there again on my next visit to the Big Island.

      History Restored Lovingly

      from

      We were totally impressed with this new B & B. The restoration and furnishings were well thought out. Our hosts were delightful and Bill's baked goodies a real treat. Our stay was in the Samurai room on the top floor and we were totally transported to another realm..we didnt want to leave...A +

      Fabulous breakfast

      from

      The innkeepers here are perfect, charming hosts and the breakfast was wonderful. We took home the recipe for an amazing banana pancake souffle.

      Love at First Sight

      from

      As soon as I stepped into the Samurai Room, I fell in love. From wooden floors to reed mats and shades, the room looks and feels like you're in Japan. The many windows give you a panoramic view of downtown and the gorgeous bay. The bathroom has wonderful tub built into stones. The shower is also made from the same stones, even has a huge shower head that makes you feel like you were taking a shower in the rain.

      Bill and Gay were so kind and helpful, makes you feel like you've known then you're entire life. Gay even wrote down the many things you could do in and around Hilo for us. They were so accommodating, and their breakfast was like a feast of ambrosia. If you decide to come to Hilo, staying in the Hilo Honu Inn is a must!!

      Hilo Honu Inn is fabulous!

      from

      Hilo Honu Inn is a beautifully restored vintage Hawaiian home which Bill and Gay have turned into a fabulous B & B. The location is close enough to Hilo town, but not too close! Plenty of parking for guests, we never had problem finding a space.

      Absolutely the best! We loved the Hilo Honu Inn!

      from

      We just got back from our visit to Hilo and couldn't wait to share our thoughts about the Hilo Honu Inn. First things first...the Hilo Honu Inn is absolutely wonderful, and we highly recommend it.

      Surprized by how nice this B&B was!

      from

      We were referred to the Hilo Honu Inn by another B&B and were pleasantly surprized! We stayed in the Samarai Room and loved the huge soaking tub, the Japanese elements and the view of Hilo Bay. Since we were one of their first guests, we got our room at a 25% discount for their grand opening special. Billy and Gay were pleasant hosts, cooked great food in the morning, and told us about all the great places to go. We look forward to staying at the Hilo Honu Inn again when we come back to visit the Big Island our next trip!
