Hilo house description
The Orchid Tree Bed & Breakfast is located just minutes from downtown Hilo, on the old scenic route, at Alae Point. We offer a unique lodging experience. You will enjoy the privacy of a six hundred square foot suite with private entrance and private access to our large covered lanai, swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
Walk across the street to Honolii Beach where surfers and swimmers enjoy the gentle rollers under the watchful eye of a county lifeguard. Or explore the river where waterfalls plunge into clear swimming holes. Maybe you’re feeling lazy...why not just sit on the lanai with a cup of Kona coffee and watch the whales play in the blue Pacific. It’s up to you, at the Orchid Tree you are in the perfect location for a real Hawaiian experience.
After a lovely breakfast of fresh local fruit and pastries, juice and coffee, you may want to head out for a day of East Hawaiian adventure. Head north to Waipio Valley (50 minutes) or Akaka Falls (15 minutes). Turn south and head for Volcanos National Park (45 minutes) or out to Lower Puna and the famous Red Road where the coast is graced with hot ponds and fields of coral (40 minutes). No matter which way you turn, getting there is half the fun as you travel through the breathtaking beauty of east Hawaii. This area is rich in Hawaiian history and geology. We can show you the way to a memorable vacation, in an area that most tourists will never see.
Downtown Hilo is a jewel of a town nestled on the shores of Hilo Bay; a bay that cruise ships from around the world are only just discovering. Here you will find excellent dining, music, golf and tennis, water sports, movies and museums, a modern mall as well as local arts and craft fairs. Hilo can boast of having one of the great farmers markets (according to Sunset Magazine) and many fine artisans have relocated to East Hawaii for the creative climate of this beautiful city. For a great view of Hilo, with Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa as a backdrop, we suggest renting a kayak and exploring the bay and local coastline.
Early risers can visit the fish auction with all the excitement of the fresh catch...truly a local experience! For the true adventurer...Molten Lava flowing into the sea! Yes, we can show you the way. With thirty years experience in East Hawaii we know what’s hot.
Whether you are hiking through lush botanical gardens or swimming through ethereal coral gardens, whether you choose bird watching in a tropical rain forest or monkey watching at Panaewa Rainforest Zoo, we are sure you will never have a dull moment on your visit to the windward side of the Big Island.

We stayed for a couple of nights in a well decorated, clean room which was very spacious. The garden and pool area are very nice. Steve was a conscientious host - provided lot of local information and delicious breakfast. The neighborhood is quiet, away from the main city but within an easy 5-10 minutes to get to most places. The blacksand beach is nearby. Very popular with the surfers. We saw a sea turtle on the beach. There is a nice walk to a nearby waterfall.

My husband and I stayed with The Welsh's at their gorgeous bed and breakfast for four days during our three week Hawaiian honeymoon. I cannot speak highly enough about the entire experience and how beautiful the property is in person, and what welcoming hosts they were to us. The suite is quite large and elegantly appointed while also very comfortable, with a private entrance and veranda where Steve brought us breakfast every morning. And about that breakfast, I was five months pregnant at the time and delighted in the platters of fruit and fresh baked goods, a gorgeous way to start the day. The pool and spa are literally steps away from the room, perfect for my husband to jump in and then relax on their huge outdoor couches while I snoozed with the doors open listening to the sound of blissful quiet. Just down the street is a breathtaking local surf and snorkeling beach, took my breath away to watch the turtles pop up next to the surfers!! If only I could stay there every year! Tom and I can't wait to return, and highly recommend this property.
