Expert Review

On the Hilo side of the island, plan for rainforest hikes in lieu of beach bumming. In the town of Hilo, this B&B offers a genuine piece of Hawaiian history - a converted plantation-style mansion dating from 1899. The five rooms are filled with the treasures of owner Barbara Shipman's great-grandmother Mary, who once entertained Queen Liliuokalani and writer Jack London here. Breakfast consists of fruit plucked from the estate's 20 types of trees, along with homemade macadamia nut granola.
