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

This was a fabulous B & B. Steve, our host, was extremely helpful and welcoming. The setting is lovely, the accommodation was excellent and the breakfast was perfect - locally grown fruit, banana bread and more. At the end of the day we came back and enjoyed the hot tub and pool. We would definitely return. This is a delightful... More

A first class Bed & Breakfast in a beautiful setting and well located just off Highway 19 and and less than 4 miles from the centre of Hilo. The breakfasts were of the highest order and offered everything from a gorgeous fruit platter (mostly from the garden), wide range of fresh pastries and excellent coffee to start the day. The...

Didn't see what the rave reviews are about. Perhaps I was expecting too much based on the ratings but this is not a luxurious high end B&B by any means. Upon entering our unit, we were immediately greeted by a strong smell of mildew (we had the suite) and though very large, the unit didn't feel all that special. Lighting... More

Steve is friendly, laid back, gives great recommendations for local activities and serves a killer bfast of fresh local fruits accompanied by another delicious item (we had his banana bread one day and waffles the other).
