Everything was just great! We for sure would come back again.

The Bamboo Orchid Cottage is 1.3 miles to the Volcano National Park Entrance. The room was very clean and cozy. The individual heating elements on the bed was a nice touch. Gas fireplace was not needed. The outdoor hot tub was great, especially after a hard day of hiking in the park. Breakfast was average at best since Hawaii law does not allow B&B to provide a hot breakfast.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Bamboo Orchid cottage in Volcano, HI. The cottage was very clean, private and comfortable, and so conveniently located to the Volcano National Park. Breakfast was great, and we loved the hot tub after a long day of hiking. Kathy was very nice and got up early enough that we could take some breakfast with us on the days that we had early plans and missed the full meal. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone staying in Volcano.

Stayed two nights. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was great! It was a perfect place to stay after hiking all day in Volcanoes National Park.

Enjoyed our stay! Maurice, the cat, greeted our arrival. The room was extremely cozy and roomy. The papaya boat Noel made for breakfast was delicious. The conversations with the fellow guests were very entertaining. What more can you ask for?

This B&B shines in its attention to detail. When we checked in at night, the atmosphere was tranquil. The fireplace in the room was on, and Hawaiian music was playing. Our breakfast the next morning was prepared by the innkeeper, Gary, and was informative and delicious. The papaya boats with bananas, pineapple, lime juice, and yogurt were great treats every morning that do the fresh fruit in Hawaii justice. His other specialty that he made each morning was also wonderful. We enjoyed our morning conversation with Gary and with the other guests. Being able to share experiences, ideas, and knowledge is unique and cannot be found at a hotel. Gary was an entertaining and knowledgeable host. He provided information on must sees and must eats. This B&B is in the rainforest and feels remote. Most nights I went to bed with the sound of the rain. If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet stay this is ideal. Volcanoes National Park is less than 5 minutes away, and Hilo is about 30 minutes. We were sad to leave the B&B but will surely return in the future. Thanks Gary!

We stayed at the Bamboo Orchid Cottage for 2 nights in February 2010. Gary, the innkeeper, provided a great breakfast of homemade waffles, an array of other baked goods, and fresh fruit (papaya boats) every morning. The rooms were wonderful with a large, comfortable bed, a fireplace and a spacious bathroom. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anybody and would love to stay there again.

Although my Wife & I live in Hawaii, we still need time away at least every other month for uninterrupted quality time. I have served in the military for over 28 years and have stayed in accommodations ranging from Bedouin tents to Kings castles world-wide to include South America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, the Arctic Cap, Central America, and the Caribbean. The Bamboo Orchid Cottage is an average B&B that for some reason is extremely over rated. It is owned by a retired Military Officer who doesn’t actually reside on the property, but lives in Mililinai on Oahu. Without the actual owner residing on the property, the Bamboo Orchid Cottage is seriously missing the small details that set B&Bs apart from one another. The owner of the Bamboo Orchid Cottage has forgotten the true meaning of Aloha like the other 95% of Hawaii’s tourist industry; ‘Aloha’ is not that it’s just another saying in order to empty visitors to the islands pockets. We’ll not return, since there are many other B&Bs who still live by the Aloha Spirit. – John & Dee; N.Shore, Oahu

We stayed at the lovely Bamboo Orchid Cottage for two nights and it was beyond our expectations. The hospitable and warm greeting and excellent care we received from the caretaker, Dave was great. He is also an excellent breakfast chef and the taro waffles are not to be missed. Our room was clean, cheery, comfortable and inviting with all the best and latest amenities. I will add this wonderful house to my list of return visits. Ken McDonald, Boulder - CO

At the time of my stay Bamboo's "innkeeper" is the genial Gary along with feline support from Maurice a big ginger cat. Judging by the comment book in my room, Gary seems to be continuing the legacy set down by previous hosts, As well as the peaceful and beautiful location Bamboo provides great rooms, and plentiful breakfast, and if you order in advance copious amounts of food in your lunch box. Whilst all of Volcano is lovely, the setting, hidden deep in the rain forest is peaceful, and soothing. The practice of everyone eating at the same table encourages both sociability and the exchange of tips and ideas about exploring the area. The downside is is that the place is so mellow, you might not be up and out exploring as early as you wanted to.... I stayed four nights, in many ways wish I had stayed longer.

Very much enjoyed our stay at Bamboo Orchid Cottage. Friendly inkeepers, excellent facilities, comfortable room, and tasty, plentiful breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights and wish we'd stayed longer ... Very comfortable and made to feel very welcome by hosts David & Dani. Fantastic breakfast, lovely room and great location. Stacks to do in and around Volcano. David and Dani recommended and helped us arrange a boat trip out to see a lava flowing into the ocean - absolutely fantastic! I'd recommend Bamboo Cottage without hesitation. Our thanks again to David and Dani.

We had a wonderful time at the Bamboo. The room was cozy and clean. The hosts were fun and entertaining. The hot tub was great on the chilly nights. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the Tree Top Suite at the nearby sister property Volcano Tree House Inn. Our room was 3 stories up in the canopy of a tropical rain forest. Windows on all walls, shades we never bothered to pull because it was very private and we did not want to block our unobstructed view of the jungle. Wrap around porch, complete with heater, comfy chairs, a quiet secluded place to read or watch birds or simply sit in the sun streaming through the upper branches. Big comfy bed with dual control heated mattress pad (it gets chilly at nights as it is above 5000 feet elevation). I spent a lot of time here reading and resting. Convenient kitchenette, walk in shower, books about birds and local history, good lighting on the stairs and walkways, I would not change a thing. Breakfast is at the sister property, Bamboo Orchid Cottage, a short walking distance away. Wonderful coffee, papaya fruit boats, homemade pastries, bagels, a good selection of granola, hardboiled eggs, yogurt, make-your-own waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Suzy and her niece took good care of us. We had the Volcano Adventure package complete with a helicopter tour, a self-guided audio driving tour of Volcano National Park, and a private tour with a local guide of the Puna coast. A good choice. We ate just about everywhere in the town of Volcano and liked it all, went to the Volcano Winery, went to the Park which is open 24-7, saw the petroglyphs (a long hot walk but worth it), ventured out to see the new lava flowing out of tubes into the ocean one night - spectacular, natural fireworks! We would definitely come back and try the new birder package. If you do go to this part of Hawaii, bring a fleece jacket and be prepared for daily rains. It's a rain forest...sun and heat are a short drive in any direction.

The rooms were cozy, the breakfasts delicious, and the innkeeper had many good suggestions for activities, dining, etc. Minutes to the entrance of Volcano National Park.

We stayed here in September 2008, on our first trip to Hawaii. Coming from Australia, we had no idea what to expect, and given that we were staying 5 nights, were anxious that we would find the accommodation not up to standard. We were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness, cleanliness and friendliness we encountered. Our room was a comfy little slice of paradise, where we could wash off the trails, and relax in the most comfortable bed in our entire month away. Breakfasts were fantastic, with the best local fruits on offer. And don't let anyone tell you not to go to Volcano because of the vog - Volcano's air is amazingly clear - all the vog is in Kona!

My wife and I both loved our stay. The setting is very peaceful, I felt like I went back in time. The cottage itself has a cozy, at home feel to it. I loved the beautiful wood floors. We enjoyed the hot tub on the back deck, very tranquil. It was a great location for exploring the eastern side of the island, I highly recommend staying to anyone traveling to the Big Island. The fresh baked scones we were served for breakfast were delicious!

My wife booked a one week stay here at the last minute when it was clear I was melting down at work. We should have come years sooner. The treetop was a fabulous base from which to enjoy the Puna coast. Apapanes gliding from branch to branch, right outside your window. Very quiet and very dark at night. The suite itself was spacious, kept spotless, and the kitchenette came in handy. The B&B itself is really nicely located, a quick trip to the volcano and the craters, and a short ride to Hilo and the coast. Volcano town was also quite a nice surprise, with all styles of restaurants (including a Thai restaurant that would not be out of place in San Francisco's Mission). Suzy, the inkeeper for our stay, was gracious and gregarious. Hawaii is where my wife and I have had some of our most memorable vacations, and our stay at Bamboo Orchid was great.

Open your door to the rainforest, lush greenery, bird songs. The sound of rain on the roof will lull you to sleep. Innkeeper welcomes you so warmly.
