Bay House B & B: Great oceanfront B & B

We had a great 3 night stay at the Bay House. It's in a convenient location, just across the bridge from downtown, on the ocean with nice views from each of the three rooms. There is a common room with a small sharing library, microwave, refrigerator etc. Our room was clean, tastefully furnished (Hawaiian quilts) and spacious; the hosts friendly at all times.

The hot tub overlooking the ocean was a happy bonus. Hilo gets some rain, so we were happy to spend a little time in the tub during a light evening rain.

Uncle Billy's Hotel

Uncle Billy's Hotel

Room rates are $84-114 per day.
(see their site for a $71 internet special)
They have a room and car package for $28 more per day.


The grounds around 'Uncle Billy's' looked so inviting and so in the spirit of aloha that I decided to present these four shots here to give you a little idea of what staying here would be like.

As you see there is a lovely water walk in the center and all the way around the hotel. Goldfish inhabit ! The lower right picture has a gazebo near the center barely visible. The lobby is a delight to enter.

The hotel is locally owned and they also have a hotel in Kona.

Celebrity Century: An Incredible Skye Suite

My wife and I cruised to Hawaaii in February 2013 aboard the Celebrity Century for my 40th Birthday. We chose to stay in one of the Skye Suites. I have to say I loved our room. The location, the size and the huge balcony were amazing. Century is a smaller and older ship in the Celebrity fleet but everythhing in the room was comfortable and clean.

The highlight of our trip was the butler service. Our butler took care of all of our needs aboard the ship. We had unlimited champagne, beverages, fresh flowers in the room and afternoon tea daily. Our butler even sent us dessert to the room every night as a sweet ending to the day.

The balcony for the most part really wasn't worth it until we hit the islands. The crossing from San Diego was rather rough, cold and for the most part rainy so we didn't stay outside long. Once in Hawaii we used the balcony alot; especially when passing by the Big Island at night and watching the lava flow into the ocean...that was a Wow for me. I also loved our morning in Maui; watching the humpback whales giving me a show right in front of our balcony.
