Tip and Penny are gracious hosts, and warm and wonderful people. If you want to experience the real Hawaii, Hilo is the town for you and Tip's place is the place for you. Penny, a native of Big Island,is a charming hostess! She bakes gluten-free breads and local treats that she leaves out daily for guests. Tip, born and raised in Oahu on the North Shore, will share stories of his youth well-lived...ask him about his contribution to a cultural icon, the movie 'Endless Summer'. Farmer's Market and restaurants are a block or two away. Hilo Bay is walking distance, supermarket across the street, street parking is easy to get. This is a magical place and Tip and Penny are the most affable hosts you'll find.

Tip and Penny's place was better than I expected. They did their best to satisfy my family's needs. I also enjoyed the banana bread they provided. Thanks.

Great place to stay conveniently located next to a chocolate shop. Rooms are well kept and beds are comfortable after a long day of activities. Tip and Penny are wonderful hosts...few places will greet you with a hug and fresh local fruit when you check in.

Tip's place is in a great location and has been very nicely renovated. The rooms have very spacious bathrooms, are very clean, and have two beds that can accommodate three guests. Soap, shampoo, local Kona coffee, a coffee maker, etc were all provided. There is an amazing chocolate shop called Hawaiian Crown Chocolate just next store that specially made us dark chocolate covered Kona coffee beans - delicious! Tip and Penny are great; they gave us lots of good suggestions for dinner and a local mochi pounding festival that we attended. I would definitely stay here again!

I would highly recommend the Kama'aina Inn as your place to stay in Hilo. We had a wonderful experience here. Tip and Penny are very welcoming and friendly. The place is conveniently located right in downtown Hilo, very short walking distance to everything (Grocery, Farmer's Market, Dining, Shopping, Parks and Beach) Tip will meet you outside to make sure you've located it and can find parking and then give you a very detailed explanation of the surrounding areas and even go through maps with you to tell you about all the destinations and things to see in the area. Penny super friendly and there to make sure you have everything you need and always bringing in fresh avocados, bananas, and papayas from the trees in the back. The rooms are clean and nice and the common area is wonderful.
