It's probably a sign you're at a great bed and breakfast when you walk in and don't want to leave -- no matter what you have planned. Orchid Tree inspires such feelings -- one glimpse at the amazing backyard and I just wanted to relax and soak it all in.
We stayed in a large suite with two beds -- lots of room to spread out luggage and have space to spare. There is a back door that leads on the patio, where breakfast is served at 8 each morning. The yard is filled with tropical trees and plants, and also features a pond, pool, and hot tub. We enjoyed spotting geckos and listening to the birds -- and also the coqui frogs at night. Breakfast comes with an amazing fruit platter -- a great way to start the day.
Steve was a very welcoming and helpful host. Definitely take the short walk around back to the surfing beach -- a beautiful spot. A great stay & would return again!
