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...

We absolutely loved our stay at Art & Orchids. The room and common space were beautiful, clean, airy and open. The tile work they have done is wonderful-- it felt like there were little surprises and gifts left for us to discover all around. The furnishings were also original, comfortable and beautiful, especially the wood used. My daughter loved the...

While looking for a house for our retirement, I stayed in this great B&B. Markie and Jerry were not only gracious hosts, but helped me in so many ways, such as loaning me detailed maps of the area and suggesting places to visit. Having a great breakfast in the morning helped get me started (it was filling enough that I...

We stayed there many years ago...long before I heard of trip advisor, but doing research for a return stay reminded me to write this review. We loved Art and Orchids! It is a bit of a hassle to get to, but totally worth it. The hosts were very welcoming without being intrusive. There is a great kitchen space if you...

Markie was a very welcoming host and showed us around the beautiful property as well as the homey and comfortable accomodations. We enjoyed chatting with another couple who was staying there as well. We are vegans, and Markie made vegan pancakes for us that were every bit as good as regular. And she bought the exact soymilk we requested for...

This is our favorite B&B in the world, and we've traveled most of it. The hosts, Markie and Jerry are the most accomodating, down to earth people, the food is terrific, the Garden Room is an oasis, the common areas are unrivaled, the art and gardens and pool - I always feel like I'm really on vacation as soon as...

We had not been back to the Big Island for 6 years. Last time we chose Art and Orchids at random, and had a perfectly relaxing visit. This time we decided to return and the improvements to the B&B really were remarkable. My favorites were the waterfall pool and the handcrafted mosaics. Markie and Jerry were great hosts, genuine examples...

Art & Orchids is a rare gem on the east side of the island and we are so glad we found it! Markie & Jerry were wonderful hosts and have created a tranquil oasis to stay at. The house is warm & inviting and there are many common areas to hang out as well as your personal room. The room...

Please update your beds (it's like sleeping on a board); Also be less pushy about breakfast - we paid for it already and we are on vacation, so we will eat if we want to eat.

We thank these guests for taking the time to review our inn. We take all comments and suggestions to heart. We have high quality firm mattresses but for those guests who wish a softer mattress we provide mattress toppers. In the future we will make sure to mention that to everyone.

“the orchid room is the smallest, but ample for two . It also felt very private,as there is a small hallway and you are two doors away from the common rooms.”
