The orchid tree rents out two B&B units which should rather called suites than rooms. It is located next to the Honolii beach park in a beautiful residential area - yet only 5-10 minutes from Hilo down town with the car. You share a beautiful terrace, garden, pool and whirlpool with the other guest room. And an excellent breakfast is... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here recently and had a wonderful stay. The accommodations are very comfortable and spacious. We did not take time to enjoy the beautiful pool but it was very inviting. The landscaping is magnificent and we enjoyed some of his home grown pineapples and bananas as part of an amazing breakfast fruit tray. We... More

This was just the most perfect place to stay for our honeymoon. Steve is a fantastic host and he and his wife Su have made the most wonderful, comfortable, beautiful home feel like our home (but better!) for four nights! We were given loads of help and support but were also given space and felt private which is the perfect... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon, and loved it! Steve clearly takes a lot of pride in his property. Our room (the hula suite) was spotless and charming, and well appointed. Breakfast on the wide lanai each morning featured a variety of fresh fruit grown on the property. We loved being close to old... More

This was our second time staying at the Orchid Tree, and the only place to stay at in Hilo. Everything is clean with beautiful shower and furnishings. The breakfast is delicious every day with fresh fruit and rotating items like coffee cake, waffles, quiche, and bagels with local jam. Steve is an excellent host and will give you great tips...

We had a good time here and rooms were very spacious and well kept. The property has a colorful garden with a pool, plants, and a koi pond. I and the fruit platter was delicious-breakfast was yummy too. As mentioned from a previous reviewer, there was confusion as to what the boundaries were when it came down to requests for... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Orchid Tree for the first leg of our honeymoon in Hawaii. Needless to say, it was by far our favorite part! Hilo is a wonderful city and Steve is a great host. The room was very nice and clean, and we are still missing the breakfasts! We are already planning our second trip... More

We stayed at the Orchid Tree Inn and had a wonderful experience. This is a very small B&B and we had our privacy. The room was beautifully appointed and the grounds are beautiful with a pool and hot tub. Steve (the host) puts out an exceptional breakfast of fresh local tropical fruits, juices, croissants, granola and his home made banana,... More
