My wife and I stayed here in Feb. 2014 (rainy season), and we were happy we stayed on the South side in Kalaheo, since the North was definitely more crowded and touristy and more likely to be rainy in the Winter. Kalaheo has several nice restaurants, and is basically equidistant from the depths of Waimea Canyon and the reach of the Kalalua Trail on the north side. Sheila's B&B is very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast has no heavy items (meat, eggs - which I like) but there is room in the fridge to supplement her excellent fruit, cereal, and breads/spreads, if you want. Also, it was a nice way to do breakfast because the time was very flexible, so you could grab a quick bite and go for early hiking/sailing/etc, or you could relax with some coffee and take a slower start. Sheila also has several useful maps and advice for touring the island, so I probably didn't need to do as much research ahead of time (although we were glad we looked up and splurged on Luau Kalamaku).
Overall, a great value B&B and very well run.
