Let me recommend a B&B that we have stayed at in Hilo, and liked very much—the Orchid Tree B & B, run by Steve and Su Welsh.  We stayed with them for 5 days in December 2009 and it was wonderful.  They have two rooms adjoining the main house that are beautifully decorated.  And hang on for the breakfast that Steve serves…it’s incredible!  Steve has a coi pond in his back yard, and when he feeds them, the fish actually come to have Steve “scratch their ears” (well, I’m not sure fish have those kinds of ears, but the effect is the same!)  The picture above actually show Steve  “scratching” the fishes’ ears! Another benefit of our stay with them:  we met a wonderful “Aussie” couple, Barrie and Tracey, from Fremantle.  We all met again in Honolulu the next week and palled around together.  And THEN, just a week ago (now June, 2010), they came through Washington, DC and stayed with us for a long weekend!  This is the kind of great people you meet at the Orchid Tree !!  When you call Steve, tell him I sent ya!
