When you make a reservation to stay at this splendid villa ("B&B" does not do the place justice), host Steve sends you photos of the available rooms, but they really don't prepare you for the 'wow' factor when you walk into your suite for the first time and out onto the spacious patio with pool, hot tub, and view of...

Warm, welcoming host who had plenty of information and knowledge to share. Was very helpful. Room was amazing and so were the breakfast smoothies. 3 nights just right to see attractions and Orchid Tree very well sited for trips up and down the coast.

Stayed here for 2 nights with 2 daughters, mother in law and husband. Great location with view of the ocean and easy to find. We had rented both rooms, Steve makes a great breakfast as well as being a wealth of information. Would easily recommend this place to others!

My husband and I stayed at Orchid Tree B&B with another couple for 2 nights and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The great experience started when Steve the owner met us in the driveway welcoming us to the property and what a beautiful property it is. The accommodation is beautiful, comfortable and incredibly clean. We were... More

Had a very pleasant stay just before Easter. We loved the breakfast, so much fresh fruit varieties! Owner was very friendly and had great recommendations for sight seeing spots. Also had fun exploring the garden. Recommended.

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 stayed for 4 nights while we were in the Hilo area. Stayed in the Koi Suite--all 500sq. ft.! Suite has a private entrance, private deck overlooking the ocean and the koi pond, gardens and pool. Had our own resident gecko's checking us out every morning! The suite, the view, the breakfast's Steve made every morning, everything was first rate.... 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....
