A perfect combination of unparalleled views, a beautiful and tastefully appointed room,delicious breakfasts and warm hospitality combine for a truly wonderful experience sure to be a highlight. Steve and Nancy welcome you with wine and pupus upon arrival and are a wealth of information. This is close to Honokaa and many choices for restaurants but thanks to a little frig... More

Words can not do justice to describe this beautiful B&B. Just go there. The hosts are accommodating, generous and wonderful cooks. Your visit expands from the moment you arrive with the welcoming pupus, through breakfast the next morning. You will have no regrets, just the memory of the stay of a lifetime. This B&B should be on everyone's bucket list.

My husband booked this location as a kick-off stop on our honeymoon. Little did either of us know, but Steve and Nancy set the bar high! We stayed at 3 other B&Bs through the course of our honeymoon and none came close to comparing to the Waipio Rim. Once you find this piece of heaven you will not want to... More

Was it the warm welcome of Steve and Nancy ? Was it the incredible view from the terrace ? Was it the deco of the "room", as big as my apartment in Paris ? Or may be the view on the valley from the shower ? Anyway, I felt comfortable at once and I regretted to stay only 2 nights.... More

We spent two days at this fantastic B&B. It exceeded all our expectations. The views were fantastic from the deck and even the shower. The room was very well decorated with a tropical fish theme. The breakfast was tasty and very well presented. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. We can't recommend this place highly enough. We stayed at two... More

This is a beautiful property, with a breath-taking view of the Waipio valley. The hosts, Nancy and Steve are the prefect blend of friendly, but not intrusive. The room is very large, very comfortable, and the bathroom is great. The decor is charming, and stylish. The food is yummy, and all the amenities you could want are provided. This is... More

Huge thanks to Steve and Nancy for building such a beautiful place and opening it up to visitors. It is truly as spectacular as all of the reviews say. Perched on a cliff overlooking the waipio valley, the house is very comfortable and extremely clean- modern, and relaxing. Welcome pupus and wine were a lovely touch and breakfast was delicious....

An ideal location with impeccable service. While the view of Waipio Valley is spectacular, what makes this place extra special are your hosts Steve and Nancy. They go above and beyond with their hospitality and helpfulness. The beautiful room is exceptionally clean with all the conveniences you could possibly need. If you are planning a trip to the Waipio Valley,... More

Our whole Hawaiian holiday was awesome! Really found a hidden gem at Waipio Rim however! The hosts very friendly loved our evening pupus and our breakfast was fantastic we wished we had more time to spend there enjoying the view and the beautiful accommadation. Our girls particularly enjoyed the frog catching !! What a piece of Heaven !!

Staying at Waipio Rim was the highlight of our 10 day trip to the Island. Steve and Nancy were fabulous hosts, felt like we were staying with friends. Food was great. View is the most amazing. We will definitely plan to stay there again on our next trip to the Big Island but will stay longer. Denise and Andre
