We had the new addition room which was absolutely a dream place to stay. Steve had built it himself! You could feel the luxury at every glance. The private deck and great view of the the garden as well as the ocean and sunrise were unbeatable. We also had use of the huge common covered patio/breakfast area and the pool... More

We stayed in the "old" room. It was ok but seemed to need a redo, maybe a thorough cleaning. It wasn't dirty, just a little musty maybe. The house has a beautiful backyard, pool area, covered patio/breakfast area. The new room looked much nicer. The owner was very knowledgeable about area. We enjoyed the lava tide pools that were his... More

We booked Orchid Tree based on reviews and so glad we did. It was everything we hoped for to help celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Our room and amenities were superb for a B&B and the location was perfect for what we wanted to do. Steve, our host was very personable and offered tons of great information of local places....

Had a wonderful time staying at Steve and Sue's beautiful home in March . A perfect retreat and start to a 10 day tour of the Big Island. We were able to stay three nights, and wished we had a few more as we felt so comfortable and relaxed. We had both suites traveling as two couples for Birthday and... More

We absolutely loved Orchid Tree! The location was wonderful...not too far from town, but in a quiet residential neighborhood next to the ocean. Steve, our host, was so nice and helpful in every way. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a covered lanai and a hot tub right out the door and a beautiful view of the ocean... More

We stayed here for two nights, the middle of January this year (2015). The first night/morning we were looked after by Roxanne, who was absolutely delightful (owners were out of town when we arrived). She made us feel very welcome. We had both rooms, as were traveling with my parents. Everything was immaculate, and lots of thoughtful details provided in... More

We were lucky enough to spend 7 nights at the Orchid Tree B & B. We were looking forward to meeting Steve & Su, however due to a family matter they were away. Malia, however, was our host, and what a gem! We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and she truly helped make our visit to the Big Island... More
