What a fabulous way to celebrate a 50th birthday! The Orchid Villa was perfect. Your home is beautiful and has all the special ammenities that made us feel pampered, relaxed and totally at home. We loved the beautiful white sand beaches, great snorkeling, and fabulous restaurants that were all nearby. We explored by car, finding wonderful small towns and gorgeous views. We used the pool and fitness room everyday, practically having them all to ourselves. What a dream vacation. We definitely want to return to the Orchid Villa. Thank you. Jon, Cece, Lauren and Allison.

My swiss family had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. It was very convenient from the begining (paiement facilities) to the end (check out time was flexible after contacting the owner). The location of the house is perfect in the Fairways because it allows to have the dinner in the sunset with a very confortable temperature. The air conditioning was great because it was very quiet. The wifi is free. There is a lot of very good snorkeling gears. The supermarket is near with a large variety of good foods (even swiss muesli!). Beach club very nice, green turtles in front of the hotel. Plan your trip to the Mauna Kea if you want to go to the top. Very good restaurants at the Fairmont.

We had a wonderful stay! The condo was beautiful and had everything we could possibly ask for - especially all the beach toys. It was one of the most relaxing vacations my husband and I have had in a long time - the condo was spacious and welcoming. We look forward to coming back again next year!

June 5, 2009. Just returned from a weeks stay at the Orchid Villa. It was a pleasure to stay there. I have to agree with all of the previous wonderful comments. In addition, it is very well maintained and cared for. The Fairways complex is a very short walk to the Fairmont Orchid which was the race hotel for Ironman 70.3. It was an easy walk home after the race. The Fairways pool, although not a lap pool, is long enough to swim laps and un-crowded.

This was a big trip for us.We needed to getaway and relax.The Orchid Villa was perfect in everyway. The layout and location allowed us to be very comfortable and reliant on no one.We walked and average of 4 miles a day because the Orchid Villa was in the best location to visit any spot in Mauna Lani. I can honestly say we have never stayed in a nicer ,more well kept place.We were sad to leave.Valerie and Russell were very good to deal with from the moment we made the inquiry to refunding the deposit.The communication was second to none.I would recommend their home to anyone.We very much hope we get a chance to stay there agin and get to see the sunset from their second story lani again.We miss it but will hold on to the thoughts until we are able to return. Thank you very much Wayne and Clare

We have stayed at many condo units and rental homes, yet in comparison this one stands out. The Bishops think of everything big & small. The little things are all there – condiments, coffee, laundry detergent, etc. Things you might not think of like an iPod stereo and tons of beach gear (towers, chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, etc.). Having laundry in the unit allows you to pack more lightly than would otherwise be necessary.The unit itself is modern, comfortable and immaculately clean. It has a fantastic setup with two bedrooms upstairs offering privacy. Downstairs is wide open making for a great place to gather for morning coffee or a late night cocktail. The location is great, just a short walk to the Fairmont Orchid and a very short drive to the Mauna Lani. You also get many of the benefits of staying at the Mauna Lani (gym access, discounted golf, etc.) without paying the significantly higher room rates. I highly recommend the Orchid Villa.

We stayed here with another couple for our 40th anniversary and cannot over state how beautiful the home is, the setting and the furnishings. Everything you can possibly need is here and it is of top quality. If you are going to the Big Island and if you want to insure that you have a wonderful, peaceful and classy time, then you need to stay here. A 10+
