My wife and I loved this place, and Steve the owner/host was very informative, a great breakfast chef, and just an overall nice guy. Of the three B&B's we stayed at, by far, this was our favorite. The suite was beautiful, with two couches, a big comfortable bed, lighting galore and it appeared to me that no expense was spared... More

We loved having air con - such a rarity here. The room, with two double beds, a fridge and a coffee maker (no coffee provided), was comfortable although pretty dark. The bathroom was small but functional. The owners weren't there during our stay. We arrived and let ourselves in, and asked one of the other customers for the wifi password,... More

Large beautiful room. I really loved the beds! The pool and gardens were beautiful. I walked every morning in an area without much traffic and beautiful views. Steve is also a very helpful and friendly host!

This was our favorite of the three different places we stayed on our recent trip to the Big Island and Oahu. We don't normally stay in Hilo, but we enjoyed this place so much, we might now look for an excuse to come back to that side of the island, just so we can stay here again! The room was... More

This B & B run by Steve and Su is excellent. It is situated in a lovely location, just 2 blocks from the ocean. The grounds are luscious including beautiful mature plants and trees. You can look and look again, seeing new plants and flowers each time. Each morning we had a wonderful breakfast with incredible fresh fruit (pictures posted... More

This was our 1st time staying in a B&B and from our experience staying with Steve and Su at The Orchid Tree we won't want to stay anywhere else now. It was a luxury room set in a beautiful location a minutes walk to the beach. The bathroom was amazing. Breakfast was something to look forward to every morning. Steve... More

Wow! What a great place. The room had two super comfortable beds, lots of space and all the amenities. Beautiful grounds, lovely pool, the lanai was a great place to relax in the shade. Close to the sweet little town of Hilo... lots of places to explore close by. Delicious food. Can't go wrong with this gem of a place... More

My husband and I stayed at Orchid Tree B&B for 5 nights in late August and we absolutely loved it! Location was very convenient to explore the east side of Big Island, with easy access to some amazing spots, including the active lava flow out of Kilauea. The room was immaculate and very big for 2 people. The grounds were... More

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
