About Liza Szabo

World Yogis, and healers, have retreat homes in San diego, La Jolla, Hawaii and Yosemite, Each house has sacred healing energy from years of healing practices for Gods good in peoples lives. Treat the home with respect, keep it clean while you are there and our staff will keep it clean for your arrival, if not they come and clean more if required for the large areas it covers, can mean a lanai can have a cat or bird that lands on areas and not perfect but definitely as many say the best architecture of an house or two in the area of the hilo side. Its definitely east coast original victorian floor plan in hawaiin style, to blend two cultures together in beauty.

Liza Szabo purchased this house in 2001

Why Liza Szabo chose Puna District

Considered a house of Wellness, in the past retreats were held here and it was also certified as a group living recovery home. They say it is magical as our Touret channels the islands Volcano Feel and Peles blessings, as well as natural orchids that spring up on our lot and in our Orchidland Estates.

Not that you will see the Fire energy but we are close enough to get there in 30 minutes. The original Hawaiin Healers/Kahunas say you feel each moment more alive here, bringing raw earth and rain and foliage in lushness on this side/hilo side of the islands. You may feel natures birth and death of an erupting island and its diverse climatic zones that can change from zone to zone. There are 21 of 24 climatic zones on this one island, in 90 square miles , smaller space for that much change than anywhere in the world, come here to relax, or to transform in the islands of aloha and beauty. Built by a husband for his wife by hand over ten years with a miter saw he was a crafstman artist who also worked on hotels like the del coronado , the construction and hand built staircase is of of three woods, oak, mahogany and Koa hand set, and you will feel the harmony of layout in a victorian era craftsman home. In the right season, Orchid flowers grow naturally in Orchidland Estates our subdivision without being planted, from the regular rain and other natural local plants, that grow and create HAWAII right here and now.

What makes this house unique

Good feeling from the floor plan and covered lanai to stop outside even if it is raining. Some say it feels like a magical fairy house dropped into the middle of an island tropical rainforest with mixture of sun, rain and clouds, natural blooming orchids, along with warmth and healing as well as a 20 person detox sauna and gym equipment for self cleansing health program you can create in nature for yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful location with Great character

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the orchid house. It was actually easy to find since many in our group were familiar with area! We were in town for a weekend event with just a few of us staying on for the remainder of the week. Lisa and Kerry were quite helpful, and put up with my busy travel schedule that meant I contacted them later than planned!

We booked the main house and the sleeping loft so everyone could spread out. The house is simply beautiful. It appeared that some renovations were taking place on property with supplies stored in the area under loft, but that didn't detract from our stay. From breakfast on the lanai to "family" dinners, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The house is located close enough to the airport and town that it's convenient without losing its Paradise of privacy!

The avocados and Lilikoi growing on property were an excellent treat!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This location has super awesome hosts! The house was perfect for our large ohana of 16! There are plenty of extra sleeping arrangements for the keiki and tons of space to play outside. We even made great use of the dry sauna after a long day of exploring the island.

Tropical dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

When booking our vacation Dr. Szabo responded to our request almost immediately. Liza was very informative about the mansion and surrounding area. She told us about the beach just down the way and local attractions to visit. On arrival it was easy to locate the property from the directions provided. Upon entering the property the landscape was filled with lush greenery and had a well manicured lawn. The property was so private we felt as if we were in our own world. The caretaker Kerry was there to greet and show us the property. Kerry demonstrated how to use the keyless entry and security system. The house was perferct for our large group of 16 people. It had plenty of comfortable beds located in many private rooms. The house was immaculately clean with a very pleasant decor. The kitchen was well supplied with all appliances and utensil's needed for our large group. The loft apartment provided my wife and I plenty of comfort and privacy from the rest of the group. The children were kept busy with a very large lawn area and a movie library at night. We all made use of the very large sauna and exercise equipment. Kerry was the greatest; he told us about the many waterfalls nearby and the best way to see them all on a single road trip. We would recommend this property to anyone with a large group or someone who just wants a private romantic getaway. This property is an ingredient for a perfect vacation recipe.

Stunning Victorian plantation home on the big Island of Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We really and truly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Victorian home in the subdivision known as orchidland it's called that because of all the baby orchids growing around the property as I found out later. This home is spacious and very reminiscent of the early plantation homes that the missionaries built during the sugarcane heyday of the Hawaiian islands

Lots of room for my friends and family which was nice for our annual family gathering The Viking range allowed us to cook large meals with a gourmet touch

The outside sauna was large enough to accommodate six people comfortably and it was a pleasant surprise after a day of sightseeing, hiking visiting the volcano or skin diving and snorkeling it gave the property a spa feeling along with the Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom The garage has been converted into an open-air exercise and rec room Above the garage there is a wonderful granny flat loft with kitchenette and a full bathroom which created a nice autonomous space for those in our group who needed a little bit of extra privacy

The house worked very well for folks who just wanted to stay around and read a good book as well. With a large lanai surrounding three sides of the house. Even the occasional rain was entertaining and then the sun was out before we knew it A large grassy yard about a half an acre in size graces the front of the house.The roads are fully paved up to about the last quarter mile just drive slow the road is very adequate and lends itself to the overall privacy of the home

In short I really enjoyed my stay and did a lot of healing I plan to come back every year for two weeks to a month to this wonderful wonderful place

Owner's Response: Conscientious caring families make great guest and also appreciate what each property has and can name it without coloring it with any family fights one might get into on a trip combining in laws and multiple families that might never live in one house but try it for a Tropical vacation. This family proved you can be gracious and happy. We would welcome them back anytime, and the sauna is enough for 20 folks or 10 easily! as its almost like a small studio!

Charming, cozy, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The first impression we had for this property was that the manager was so helpful and responsible. We got there very late, around 10:30 or 11pm, he waited for us to check in and showed us around. He was very knowledgeable for the area and offered useful suggestions. When we had a problem with oven, he came right away and fixed it.

Although the house was not brand new, it shows her charming beauty from inside out. The lovely deck goes around the whole house providing the shade and green. The front and back yard are so natural. The inside of the house is very clean and bright. At night time, it is also very cozy especially if you close all the

blinds. There are several lights outside around the house ,bright the deck for your convenience . The best memory for this lovely house is the singing of the frogs that I never heard before. At first, we couldn't even believe it came from frogs! So amazing, so romantic! I would definintly recommend this house to everyone, especially for the families with kids.

Everything We Needed Beautiful Spacious House

  • 5 of 5

Our Family and friends needed a last minute place and we landed in the right House, It was beautiful from first walking in to staying and all we needed. The grounds are loadedwith lots of Plants and trees, making it gorgeous as well as the house is

well layed out and big with lots of rooms at opposite corners of the house, designed just like victorians as you would imagine with lots of wood and charm. The owners requested a review and we read the other review. This house is a newer home not old or in need of remodeling. It has hardwood throughout and an amazing wood staircase. The master was so huge and we had the extra bed we needed not to mention the jacuzzi tub and a huge Sauna was a plus for my daughter who needed to take a break and heal up. There is a deck that wraps around the front, side and back making it much bigger and kitchen had a big glass atrium window that made it feel really special along with a big Viking range and plenty of eating table space. The caretaker was very professional and helpful with anything you need and the home is well managed. We were very comfortable in our rooms and were able to bring extra guests as some rooms are so large they can have two beds. Very exquisite house and grounds. I highly recommend for a romantic get away or for a family or group. There was even an extra studio loft there for more people if needed. There was exercise equipment bikes we should have used. We thank Lisa and Kerry for making this happen last minute for us.
