Art and Orchids is a wonderful B and B in a rainforest! Easy to access via rental car and provided directions. Markie was a really warm and welcoming hostess who takes the time to put in the little details that made our stay special. We loved that she served a variety of tropical fruits fresh from the garden for the buffet breakfast! Yum. She also made us a delicious To Go meal for our early departure, which was a super nice last taste of the island. Lots of rainforest night sounds (mainly a frog chorus) that added something unique to our stay (was not detrimental to sleeping). Rooms were clean, and great living room with lots of movies and books. Fun artwork abounds. Careful of bug bites if you go to the hot tub or pool in the evening! ;) Perfect location for exploring volcano, Puna, and Hilo side of the island. Highly recommended taste of Hawaiian living, thank you Markie!!
