Waipio Rim is a true escape. My husband and I spent 2 nights here. Each morning I watched the sun rise on one of the most iconic and memorable views in Hawaii. We enjoyed incredible and creative breakfasts on the balcony and were welcomed with wine and appetizers our first night. It was not hard to find with the help... More

This is a charming and very cozy cabin located just above Waipio Valley. The views are amazing and it's very peaceful. Nancy and Steve are wonderful hosts. They left a bottle of wine and a delicious appetizer prepared with local products. The breakfast was also great. We hiked down to the waterfall after our arrival. And then to the beach.... More

The Waipio Rim B&B is in the most magnificent location I have ever seen. The views of the valley from our room and lanai were utterly spectacular. Nancy and Steve were delightful, greeted us with delicious pupus, and made us a magnificent breakfast in the morning. We had total privacy, and a large attractive living space with a very comfortable... More

This is the most beautiful spot ever! The hosts are wonderful. Anticipate every need. Ride to the beach with Steve and come back to the most delicious and beautifully served Nancy breakfast. Sleep amongst the sounds of breakers birds and frogs

My husband and I had four nights at this B&B in November, and we already cherish the memories we made. Everything that others have written about the overwhelming valley vistas, the sumputious breakfasts made with at least some produce from the garden daily, and the lovely birdsong is better than anticipated! And those Coqui frogs that the locals find a... More

A lovely place, with a beautiful view of the coastline. The rooms are big, clean and airy and allow you a stunning view of the jungle outside of your window. You are immersed by nature, from seeing and smelling the tropical flowers and fruits outside to hearing a concert of frogs all around you :)! We had a wonderful time... More

This was a lovely place to stay (very elegantly decorated, well provisioned) and the view was beyond fantastic. I could sit on the lanai for hours watching the ocean change colors. The first attempt down the road and up the driveway was a little scary, but once done soon became old hat. In order to maximize the enjoyability of your... More

Sorry that the frog noise was a problem. It has been a very wet El Nino season and we have had trouble controlling them. We provide earplugs on the nightstand. When the double pane windows are closed it is much quieter in the room, and there is a ceiling fan to keep the air moving. More

My husband and I stayed at Waipio Rim BnB for 3 nights during our Hawaiian honeymoon. There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said here already -- this is a beautiful, peaceful, amazing BnB experience and was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Steve and Nancy have created something special here. They are the nicest people,... More

We absolutely loved staying here! We stayed six nights and would have stayed even longer if we could have! The view is amazing. The room is comfortable and clean. You can hear the frogs when you go to bed and the birds when you wake up. It feels so peaceful and secluded. The breakfast was sooo delicious! Steve and Nancy... More

As part of our first trip to Hawaii we stumbled upon this B&B when browsing the Internet for ideas. There was only one night available so we grabbed it on a hunch that it would be idyllic. It was that and so much more. The room is perfectly decorated with many thoughtful additions for travelers. The view is perfection; overlooking... More
