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

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

We spent 2 weeks traveling around the Big Island, including 2 nights in the Volcano area. Volcano has many lodgings from which to choose. Bamboo Orchid Cottage was definitely the right choice! It's only 10 minutes from Volcanoes National Park & a selection of excellent restaurants. The property is located in a tropical rainforest & is beautifully decorated. We stayed... More

My husband and I were impressed by the comfort, ambience, and hospitality at this B@B. The owner and host, Gary, provided wonderful breakfasts, lots of thoughtful little touches throughout, and a lovely place to relax - in the hot tub, or just reading with my feet up in the living room. He is a knowledgeable and experienced traveler, so the... More
