That was too short to look around Waipio. We could make reservation of this adorable accommodation only one night, orher days are already full when I decided to stay there. I would high recommend you here to book earlier in advance. That place has totally exclusive view and the room has managed and treated well by very nice people, Nancy... More

This stay has been pretty amazing from the accommodations, to hospitality, and the list goes on. This was quite possibly the best stay I've ever had, anywhere. Steve and Nancy do a wonderful job at everything they do and provide. This is Hawaii, and at its best. Appetizers the night we arrived and breakfast the next morning were also freshly... More

We had booked our two night stay based on some internet research and trip advisor ratings. We didn't arrive at Waipio B&B until after 11 PM because of flight delays. Steve was there at the turn off so we could follow him without getting lost. We were excited about getting there but ready to go to bed after traveling for... More

We absolutely LOVED our three nights at Waipi'O Rim. Nancy & Steve were fanastic hosts and the service was top class. The view from the bedroom & patio is surreal. We hiked down to the bottom of the Valley and enjoyed a Black Sand beach. The breakfast each morning was a work of art and ever so tastey. I would... More

Tucked away at the end of the road, we found this little piece of paradise. Nancy and Steve were so friendly and just wonderful as hosts. The room was spacious and the decor tasteful, warm and inviting. The view from the veranda is amazing, ocean, valley, lush garden and trees. We just loved it here and intend to come back... More

When I read the glowing reviews of the Waipio Rim B&B and saw pictures of the view I was sold. What I didn't expect was that it would be 50 times better than any review I read or picture I saw! When I asked the proprietors, Steve and Nancy, what they thought of having an elopement in their backyard overlooking... More

Beautiful located even behind the public look out completely privat directly at the rim this place is closer to paradise than others. Nany and Steve are such thoughtful hosts and made out short stay just perfect. The room is decorated and equiped with the special eye for the detail that makes the different. We would have loved to stay longer.

We stayed for 5 nights at Waipio Rim as part of our honeymoon. The location is in possibly the most beautiful spot on the Big Island and you cannot get tired of the view of the ocean, valley, cliffs and waterfalls. The guest house is complete separate from the main house and you have a lot of privacy. The place... More

We picked a wonderful place to stay to kick off our Hawaii vacation! Our only issue, a regret really, was that we didn't stay longer. Although we got in late, stayed one night and were off before lunch, Steve and Nancy made our stay memorable and very welcoming. We recommend Waipio Rim highly!!!

We could only would recommend this B&B to anyone. stay one night, but this is one place you must stay if you come to the Big Island. Make sure you get directions because it can be hard to find and it is at the end of the road. The view is stunning, the accommodations are first class and the breakfast... More
