We stopped for one night here and spent the next day exploring the valley. Seeing the sun rise over the valley in the morning from the private terrace was fantastic. Overall, the place is even nicer than the photos. The hosts are really nice: they help a lot, they even lent us toys for the kids to play on the... More

We stayed here early in our trip and it was a wonderful remote and tropical place to wind down from the hubub of getting to Hawaii. The studio is just like the description, thoughtfully appointed for guests who will be enjoying the valley and the beach. The bathroom is awesome! The breakfast was fresh and fruity with special touches like... More

Great B&B nestled at the end of a private road/driveway. Stunning views, lovely accomodations and warm, welcoming hosts will await you at this little slice of paradise on the Big Island of Hawaii. From the deck of the top room, seeing it in person the view is even more breath taking than a photo can capture. We enjoyed watching the... More

The Big Island is a magical and beautiful island of Hawaii. Waipio Rim B&B is the peak of perfection in all of Hawaii. The B&B is perched high on a hillside overlooking breathtaking views of Waipio Valley. We enjoyed all of the wildlife from our balcony every day. There were pupus upon our arrival and a nice bottle of Chardonnay.... More

I'm an avid backpacker and this hike was tough for me. The scenery is stunning from the top, but the black sand beach at the bottom isn't too be missed. Is the truest black sand beach I've experienced, soft sand, no rocks, and long stretching scenery. The hike down is hard enough, the hike back up is another story. Only... More

My wife and I and our 9 year-old son stayed at this magical B&B for 3 nights towards the end of June. What to say about it? Well, looking at Trip Advisor there have been 200 previous reviews and 200 5-Star ratings. The reasons are clear from the comments of the previous reviewers: Luxury, private accommodation (you'll be the only... More

My husband and I read nothing but excellent reviews about Waipio Rim B&B prior to our trip to the Big Island of Hawaii and we were definitely thrilled upon our arrival that we made a great choice!

Stayed just the one night as nights either side were booked out. An incredible location, and the view from the balcony about as therapudic as it gets. Comfy room, and Steve & Nancy were very friendly hosts.

Aloha, we recently stayed at Waipio Rim B&B. It was a magical place! Amazing views & delicious meals! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! We highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see Hawaii.

We stayed three nights at Waipio Rim B&B. It was truly magical. I felt like I was sleeping in beautiful tree house. The breakfasts' served were absolutely delicious and the view is breathtaking. We were sad to leave. Our hosts were so kind and helpful. I found the perfect place to write overlooking the Waipio Valley from our lanai. Thank... More
