This is the ultimate armchair view from the deck or your room. Getting there is a little crazy but not as bad as my worrying self had expected. It all went off without a hitch, but it looks like you are driving off to danger. Not to worry though. Just follow their directions and turn left immediately after heading down... More

My husband and I were married at the B&B on the 26th of July. The location was absolutely beautiful! All of our friends and family were stunned at the amazing view. It was perfect! Steve and Nancy are also some of the kindest people we have met! They were so helpful with our wedding preparation and made us feel right... More

Thank you so much for an amazing retreat - what a fantastic way to end our time in Hawaii. Every last detail was considered and we felt completely spoiled - the view, the decor, the food, the hospitality - all exceptional. Our original plan was for our 1 year old son to stay with my parents at another B&B, and... More

My wife and I stayed just one night, and immediately wished we had booked at least 2 or 3 nights. What a wonderful place to relax and be pampered by excellent hosts, in first-class accommodations with a million-dollar view! We can't say enough about how enjoyable it was to lounge on the lanai just enjoying the view while dining on... More

This has been the best B&B we have ever stayed in. From the beautiful views and room to the kind hospitality and stunning breakfasts, this place absolutely knocks it out of the park. Six stars, if I could give that many.

Amazing location with the B&B perched right by the edge of the Waipio Valley. It is a great location to explore the northern part of Big Island and we also hiked down to the valley and walked the King's Trail one day - it was a tough, but fun walk. Steve was a lovely host and my favorite illustration of... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Waipio Rim. What a wonderful spot with great hosts! The perfect place for 2 nights of relaxing. We enjoyed a steep hike down to the black sand beach and waterfalls where we spent the day. After a hot hike back up we were greeted with cold, refreshing drink. The breakfasts were wonderful!...

If you desire a bolt-hole on the Big Island with friendly hosts and views that even hyperboles do little justice, then Waipi’o Rim B&B is for you. Upon arrival, up the long, dead end driveway to Waipio Rim B&B, we are met by Steve who with his wife, Nancy, host the small lodging. Sublimely friendly, we get the briefing on... More

This experience is quite exceptional....just slightly off the beaten track, somewhat difficult (but not impossible) to reach, which made it a true adventure for us. Just be sure to bring instructions given by Steve and Nancy when booking. Once there, it is amazing...truly amazing. Incredible views of this iconic Hawaiian valley and ocean below, the Hawaiian owl hooting in the... More
