The Shipman House's Guest Cottage, on Reed's Island in Hilo, was part of the former Shipman House B&B. Its 2 separate units are mirror-images of each other, and may be rented singly or together. Just 4 blocks downtown, it's an easy walk to excellent restaurants, museums, shops, Farmers' Market. Volcanoes, stargazing and the best snorkeling are just a 45 minute drive away. Waterfalls and botanical gardens nearby. Your hosts happily welcomed B&B guests here from all over the world for 20 years.
