The space

This listing is for the furnished room with private bath know as the AVOCADO ROOM .

Our adjacent homes house scientists, researchers, writers, engineers, graduate students and summer interns for the telescope community, observatories, university and college of pharmacy. As such, we often host an international mix of residents from many countries.

I often host the same scientists over and over, and they feel this is their home when returning to Hilo. We love making new friends, and the conversation here is never boring.

Oh! And the avocados! If you hit it right, there are amazing butter pear avocados right outside your window. Hence the name "Avocado Room".

Robin was not home but had a substitute host who was very helpful when we checked in. The old "Kama'aina" home was in need of exterior maintenance and updating especially in the kitchen, but it was clean, well-painted on the interior, their was a good computer set-up with spacious desk in the room, and the bed was comfortable. This room was the only one with ensuite bath as the other 2 guest rooms she rented on the same floor shared one. The other guests were quiet and considerate of their kitchen use. The floors, though old, did not squeak so it was quiet walking through the hallway that everyone shared to their rooms. Parking was easy, extremely close to the airport, and about a 1.5 miles to town on Kilauea St. This is a very convenient thoroughfare with Island Naturals, about two blocks up the road. This has a great organic prepared food, juice and coffee bar that we took great advantage of! If good organic food is important to you - Hilo is a haven for this!

I had a lovely stay! The en suite bathroom was very convenient, bed was large and comfy, everything as described, and there was always delicious coffee in the morning. Hands down the most charming BnB experience that I've ever had--the property was covered in an incredible variety of tropical fruit trees in varying states of bloom. The birds and coqui frogs added to the Hawaii ambience :)

we are so lucky to enjoy the whole big house by ourselves(my wife and myself). The house is extremely fantastic, the breeze blows through the house from window. It's so comfortable to sit in sofa to read book or just enjoy the silence.

The house was clean with lots of books on the bookshelves. Robin is a very nice woman. Since we had a early flight, she prepared breakfast for me and my boyfriend in the early morning.

My girlfriend and I had a really good rest at Robin's cozy and comfortable place for two nights. The Robin's owns a pefect location, and with the only sounds being natural, birds and breeze. We received a warm welcome from Robin although we got late at the first night. It was my fist time B&B experience, and it was really amazing.

Great place to stay in Hilo. It is charming, comfortable, clean, and calm. Robin is an excellent host. She was there to welcome me in and she was very accommodating. Even though I was traveling alone, I would bring my family here as she has other rooms available in the property.
