My girlfriend and I really like this place. It is a cozy little house inside the forest, very secluded and quiet. We stayed in the Kipuka room, which was perfect for the two of us. The papaya boat breakfast every morning at 8:00 AM was also very nice. Gary was also very friendly to talk to and offered suggestions on... More

Three nights in October 2014. Stayed in the Royal Orchid room which Gary the owner called the Honeymoon suite. Had a shower, jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace which came in handy. At this elevation it gets on the cool side at night. So we turned on the fireplace at night to warm the room a bit before going to bed.... More

This is a nice, charming and quiet place in the rainforest. We stayed at the Kipuka room which was just perfect for us. The entrance to the National Park was only 5 min away as were a couple of restaurants in the village nearby. Breakfast was very good. The papaya boats were tasty and very creative!!

We spent three nights here in August 2014. We enjoyed every minute of it. Our room and bed were very comfortable. The whole area is a rain forest and is at 4000 feet. Nighttime sleeping with the windows open is peaceful and quiet, with the sounds of nature and gentle rain coming in. Gary, the host, is very friendly, helpful,... More

Cost was reasonable, and breakfast was good. Sadly, not a hot breakfast but that doesn't seem typical for bed and breakfasts in this area. And the papaya was fantastic - much better than on the mainland. Not sure if this is typical, but when we were there the humidity was very high. There was no heat in the room. This... More

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. We are glad you enjoyed the papaya boats in the morning. We agree that you can’t get the same quality and sweetness on the mainland! While we wish we could provide a warm breakfast for our guests, we have to comply with the rules in Hawaii and unless we have a commercial... More

We spend 3 nights at the Bamboo Orchid in Aug, 2014, and stayed with 2 adults and a child in the enchanted forest room. It was plenty big enough, and the separate entrance made it nice for traveling with kids - noise made by the kids or noises audible from other guests were never an issue. They might not be... More

The owner is the rudest person. Never willing to make his guests happy always making them feel is a burden for him. The worst part was the bed. The second night my neck and back hurt so much I slept on the floor since it was better than the horrible bed. It was a nightmare!!! Would never stay here again... More

Prior to guest arrival and during their visit we strive to make the visit to Volcano and the Big Island an experience of a lifetime. Obviously it does not work for everyone. It would have been helpful for you to communicate your concerns earlier than 4 pm on the second day and last night of your visit. Nothing was mentioned... More

This is a lovely B&B. The host, Gary, is quite impressive -- not only friendly and a great host, but he is a world traveler and is able to greet guests in several different languages. This B&B is only a few minutes from Volcanos National Park. It was so close, my husband and I went to the park every night... More

Gary provided a wonderful B&B experience for my husband and I. The ambiance was peaceful and just what we needed to relax. We spent a needed day doing nothing but reading and resting and couldn't have asked for a better place. Breakfast consisted of Gary's famous papaya boats (secret ingredients) with many other goodies. It was fun over breakfast meeting... More
