We stayed 5 nights. The fruit platter, assorted breads and cereal at breakfast are so good; a great way to start the day. We stayed in both rooms and both are spacious and comfortable. This place is very quiet with beautiful outdoor amenities. Recharge on the lanai or by the pool. Use the hot tub after a busy day of...

My husband and I loved staying in the Koi suite for three nights. It was clean, peaceful, safe, and most importantly, we felt very welcome from the owner. Steve is such a nice guy and gave us tips and local history for our trip that you won't find in books or travel guides. Some small B&B owners are very much...

Just spent two nights at the Orchid Tree. Stay was fantastic. We arrived early and Steve was very flexible allowing us an early check in. Room was great - large with nice bedding, very good bathroom and fluffy towels and, best of all, a great view to wake up to. Each morning on the house veranda we had a very...

Amazing stay at this 2 room B&B. Steve and Sue great hosts. Room was large, comfy and had great amenities. Breakfast was wonderful-local fresh fruit platter, homemade pastries, hot kona coffee or whatever you need. Will definitely be back.

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...
