Holmes Sweet Home is a well-maintained house in quiet residential area with partial view of Hilo bay from the lanai. Hosts John and Charlotte Holmes make their guests feel so welcome they seem like family. Gracious and warm-hearted, they go out of their way to provide whatever one might need to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. They like to join their guests after breakfast to visit and get to know them. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Good news for those with physical challenges, one of them is handicap accessible and the shower/tub has a hand-held shower head. Breakfast of fresh fruits and muffins is served at the time you choose. A variety of cereals and jams are also available. The refrigerator is stocked with condiments and is available for guests’ use at any time, as is a microwave. A spacious sitting room adjoins the dining area with a lovely view of the side garden. I highly recommend Holmes Sweet Home to anyone visiting Hilo.
