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 Orchidlands Estates

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

Guests Posted review of Stephen family of 10. :Great house for groups or families, lots of space to be together as well as separate private space. My family and I had a great time here and we would highly recommend it. Liza was very helpful, getting in and out was very easy.

(this guest is from Maui and Has Solar energy company in Calfornia and Hawaii) here for a wedding and had a need for a big beautiful house.

Property is private and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Orchidlands Estates. Everything we needed was there. It is private and quiet. The property is well maintained. We loved sitting out on the wrap around porch in the mornings and evening enjoying the sounds of Hawaii! The owner is quick to respond to any emails. We never had any issues when we were there. Would highly recommend this property to anyone heading to Hawaii for a vacation.

Nice hidden gem with room for improvements

  • 3 of 5

Spacious and laid back. Good for large groups. Cookwares in the kitchen are wearing down. There's room for improvement for the cleanness of bedding sets. Good stay overall.

Unfortunately I forgot my Philips tooth brush and shaver at the house when leaving. When I realized it early in that afternoon I asked if I can go back to find them. I was told they got thrown away already. I think It'll be nice to have a lost and found basket next to the house? Just my 2 cents.

The property was very nice, spacious and well equipped. Kerry was great in explaining things to us.

  • 4 of 5

We would definitely consider staying there again if we had a large group of people. The A.C. in the master bedroom was a great addition. Additional A.C. units in the upstairs bedrooms would be a definite plus.

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.
