The weather was pretty bad while we were there so it may be reflected in my review. Our host had no problem preparing a Gluten Free breakfast for us and actually all the other guests were also eating GF and didn’t even know it. Jacqueline is a very good cook. The room needs another chair and a clock. Our door blew open twice while we were out and it was very chilly in our room. There is no cell service there. But the internet worked well. Good location, some traffic noise, fair rates.

Aloha and thank you for the opportunity to offer special food. I know how it can be traveling with a very limited diet. It was a pleasure to be able to offer you something wonderful to eat. I hope your trip was everything you could wish for. We have great WIFI and phone service over the internet.

We had an absolutely wonderful start to our trip to the Big Island at Waipio Wayside. Jacqueline, the host, provided not only a warm welcome to her B&B, but to the Big Island overall - she was incredibly generous in chatting with us extensively about our plans and interests, and providing incredible suggestions that set us up for an excellent trip. If you love great food, you’ll want to talk with her about the bounty available on the island, and to taste her breakfasts, which are to die for. The B&B itself is also delightful - the photos we saw in advance here and on the website do not do it justice. We were able to check out several of the rooms and couldn’t decide which we liked best - ultimately we stayed in Chinese Room and LOVED waking up to a beautiful view of the ocean and appreciated the bath after a long day hiking. We also really enjoyed eating a few meals with a panoramic view of one of the most spectacular spots in the country in the outdoor gazebo. This is the perfect place to stay for those who love nature, great food, and conversation with a wonderful person who is deeply connected to Waipio and the surrounding area!

We loved our stay at the Waipio Wayside B&B! The property is very nicely kept, the house is very unique, warm and inviting. Jacqueline is the greatest host! She is a long time resident, full of information for travellers and has a wealth of knowledge about the island. She recommended places to go see and were very pleased with the result. We found it very worth while to talk to her about our plans. Jacqueline made us the most awesome tasty breakfasts each morning including fruit from her own garden. We were guests for 5 days and she had a different menu each morning. I asked Jacqueline where I could find a laundry mat and she told us to leave laundry with her and go have fun! I would recommend this gem of a stay to anyone! We will certainly stay here again if we return to the Big Island of Hawaii. Thanks Jacqueline!

It was so much fun hosting you for five days. Great to hear your stories about home and your adventures in Hawaii. I can no imagine returning leaving home @ -40. Hawaii must have seemed like a dream. You are very welcome to come back and share my little part of paradise whenever you are back in Hawaii. Safe travels, Jacqueline

I can not rave enough about how amazing the Waipio Wayside B&B is. We stayed for a week and are eagerly looking forward to returning again & again! The location is just minutes outside of Honokaa (a town with so many cute shops & restaurants) & a very short drive from the beautiful Waipio Valley with a can’t miss black sand beach. Jacqueline was so welcoming, with excellent recommendations for restaurants & sites and with wealth of knowledge of the local area. Her breakfast each morning was so delicious...can’t wait to try her recipe for almond muffins! The rooms had so much charm and after long days of sightseeing it was so nice to come back to the relaxing home setting to a cup a tea, relaxing on the hammock, and listening to all the wonderful sounds while stargazing.

Mahalo (thank you) for your lovely review. After a week you are almost family now. I can not thank you enough for your help with Rascal. It means a great deal to me that my little chubby stay cat found wonderful home with your family. I hope you enjoy my recipes and have fun cooking. Hope to see you again in the not so distant future. Safe travels, Jacquelien

My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in the Chinese Room during our recent trip to the Big Island, and staying here was definitely one of the highlights of our week. Not only is the house beautiful and the location great (just 4 miles from the turnoff from highway 19 and 5 miles from the Waipio Valley Lookout), but most importantly, Jacqueline is an incredible host. She was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and just a joy to spend some time with. She has been living in this area for the past 35 years and has all of the best tips on where to go and how to spend your limited time. She gave us great suggestions for restaurants in nearby Waimea (25 mins away) and things to do during our hike down into Waipio Valley. Will definitely plan to stay here again on our next trip to the Big Island!

Mahalo nui loa - thank you so much. I still love hosting guests at the B&B as I go into my 32 year. I can honestly say it is still fun. And that is because of guests like you. I so appreciate it when people enjoy my historic home and property. I hope to see you in the not so distant future. Cheers, Jacqueline
