  • Excellent Hawaii Getaway

    "We had a wonderful Big Island experience at the White Orchid! Walking up to the house, the first thing we noticed was the scent of flowers blooming- pure Hawaii! The house was very comfortable. The large kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and all the rooms were very spacious. Large windows looked out onto the tide pool and foliage. We slept comfortably on a quality bed. The ceiling fans and open windows provided a comfortable air flow. The internet connection was reliable. The yard was very unique. It was private and lush, surrounded by mature tropical plants. The backyard tide pool was amazing! The water temperature was perfect. The yard had more grassy area than these pictures show. The house next door is a “sister” property and would be great for a group traveling together to use both properties. The backyards are connected by tide pools, but they are big enough that each house is still private. Walking down the street takes you to the ocean shore and Wai‘ōpae Tide Pools- wear water shoes. There was a lot to explore within a short driving distance. Volcano National Park Kilauea Overlook was about 1 hour, 10 min. away with a visitor and walks/hikes. We had dinner at Volcano House and went back to the caldera overlook to see the orange glow of the lava at night. Hilo was a 45 minute drive north and is the biggest city on the island with all the shopping conveniences. There are some interesting historical sites, funky shops, and the famous Rainbow Falls waterfall. Heading south on Hwy 130 to its end takes you to the Kilauea lava viewing area. To see where lava pours into the ocean it is an 8 mile walk, or rent a bike for $20. Take binoculars or a camera with zoom lens. Near where Hwy 130 meets Hwy 137 is Uncle Robert’s Awa Bar and cool crafts/flea market with musicians on Wednesday and Saturday. Right next to Uncle’s is the Hawaiian Star Visitor Sanctuary. You can walk out onto the lava field to the ocean."

  • Hidden jungle gem!

    "Quiet and secluded cottage in the jungle! Convenient base for exploring Volcanoes National Park. Very friendly owner. Cottage was well-supplied including a loaf of bread in the fridge and fresh fruit on the table!"

  • Wonderful!

    "It was our first time coming to the Big Island and when we arrived we loved it! The home had everything we needed and more! It was super nice to have a washer & dryer! Esther was very inviting and we overall loved our experience renting the La-Z-Banana."

  • Millon dollar view!

    "This home was very comfortable and enjoyable. The view of course was spectacular! Also very clean. Remember this is a jungle and make sure everyone is okay with lizards as we shared our week with at least 4 or 5 geckos hanging out on the walls and floors. I wasn't bothered by this but my partner was! There were a couple of long bamboo poles left in the corner (not sure what their real purpose was)which I used to tap by a lizard and it would run behind or back under from wherever it came which helped hide them for a bit. My only complaint was there were no screen doors on the sliders. It got fairly warm inside and would have loved to sleep with the bedroom slider open but wasn't comfortable with what kind of critter might have joined us in the night. When we left them open during the day we were joined by a few wasps. I would definitely stay here again with the addition of some slider screens."
