This apartment was by far the best on our 2-weeks-trip in Hawaii. The rooms are very spacious and of very high standard and the garden is beautiful. When we arrived (there's a private parking spot right next to your private entrance), there was a lovely handwritten note on the door, asking us to come in and make ourselves comfortable. We...

One of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed in. Steve was a fantastic host, full of information and tips, and his love for the island is obvious. The view from our lanai was wonderful, and we could see humpback whales from there. It's just to the north of Hilo and really handy for both the town and the waterfall... More

This is a real special place. Ocean views with a pool and hot tub. The room was spectacular.Steve, our host, was very gracious and even provided breakfast early on the days we had early tours. I don't think you can find a nicer place to stay in Hilo.

First off I don't really want to share this incredible BnB but feel that as a member of this community that I must. What a beautiful, relaxing and special place this is. Steve, our host, could not have been nicer and more helpful. He has an extensive knowledge of the Island that he is happy to share. Did I mention... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Orchid Tree B & B. As B & B's go, this one is the real deal. The host has properly converted a large part of this lovely home to cater to the guests. There are two suites with a covered outdoor common area. From there the hosts service a delightful breakfast surrounded by a private... More

This was probably the best B&B experience that we have had. Steve was a great source of local information and he made you feel like he was really interested in helping you out. The morning fruit plate introduced us to local fruit that we had no idea even existed. The yard and pool are a delight. There is a public... More

We had a fabulous experience at this lovely B&B! Steve is an excellent host, regaled us with stories of the island's history and culture at breakfast. The Hula room is lovely, very large, attractively decorated. Breakfasts were delicious, the fruit plate a work of art. We parked our car under an actual orchid tree, beautiful!

From the time we walked in the front door mid afternoon we were given the impression that Sue and Steve had been looking forward to our visit. Their home was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The Hilo location is in a quiet residential area and was just a few minutes drive from Old Town Hilo. There was a view of... More
