The accomodations were great. Steve provided super breakfasts with plenty of fruit choices. The fish pond with the "kissing" were amazing. Steve is a former landscaper/farmer, and it shows in the property.

29 August 2014 - We'd traveled from Melbourne to Honolulu, Honolulu to Hilo and felt exhausted but happy to be here by the time we arrived. Although it was too early to check in (the rooms were still being cleaned) we were able to drop off our bags and go into Hilo to have lunch. Malia was our hostess for... More

We stayed at this wonderful little B&B in September 2013, slightly more than a year ago. The most outstanding asset of this little B&B is the wonderful owner who created the most beautiful breakfast platters you can imagine every morning with local fruits. He was eager to make our stay pleasant, and he knows just about everything there is to... More

Beautifully landscaped tropical grounds surrounding a huge open air lanai and pool. Breakfast presented with a gorgeous array of tropical fruits, pastries, quiches and more--varied everyday. Our beautiful hostess, Malia, was a delight - accommodating, knowledgeable, thorough, a lifelong resident of the area. Very classy and professional young woman. Only two rooms in this B&B, both wonderfully appointed. Another top... More

Spent only one night but it was lovely. The room is gorgeous, beautifully appointed, large bathroom, lovely lanai, comfortable bed. The whole B&B is beautifully decorated. Unbelievable breakfast on the lanai and friendly, helpful hosts. The only negative is the old coqui frog noise, but that's unavoidable on the island! Highly recommend.

Steve and Su were away on a family trip during our stay, but my partner and I had the pleasure of meeting Steve before he left and getting a walkthrough of the space. A lovely woman named Malia hosted us in their stead, and we could not have been happier to have her during our stay. She was so kind... More

Although I was not a guest- I was the guest of some guests- I can say that this is hands down the most fantastic b+b that perhaps exists. Steve the host is incredibly nice and friendly. He has decorated the entire place meticulously to the degree that you are at home in a way that is unusual for a place... More

I can't say enough good things about The Orchid Tree and its owner/host Steve. My wife, our 8-year-old daughter, and our two friends from Germany reserved the two suites for a long weekend. The accommodations were perfect. Each suite was large, clean, and well-appointed. The two suites share a huge lanai with ocean view and hot tub, as well as... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Orchid Tree in June. Our accommodations were spotless and recently updated. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was extra large with a huge shower. The room was beautiful, we had a nice view of the grounds and distant ocean. The breakfast was wonderful! We have never seen a more beautiful fruit... More

My husband and i stayed for 2 nights. It is clean, sparkly, and very tasteful. The breakfasts were delicious. The grounds are well maintained. Steve is a perfect host. Nice walks nearby and a short drive into Hilo. Would highly recommend staying here.
