“Our Winter Vacation in 'Heaven'”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Our vacation stay at the Waipio Rim B&B was WONDERFUL! The views, the accommodations and the food! We got away from the stress of daily life, walked a lot and just plain enjoyed ourselves. Not your typical Hawaiian tourist accommodation - rather, a warm homey, peaceful location - off the beaten track. Steve and Nancy are the best of hosts -- and the food... well, it was just wonderful! We plan to book another vacation there as soon as possible!

Waipio Rim B&B is fantastic. The view of Waipio Valley is truly amazing; you are right on the edge of this most beautiful valley. The breakfast was delicious and the locally produced coffee rivals the best I have ever had. Nancy and Steve are gracious hosts, and there attention to every little detail makes you feel very special. Even the bed is noteworthy; it may be the most comfortable one I have ever slept in!

Staying at the Waipio Rim was the highlight of our entire vacation. We are discriminating travelers and we were most impressed by the property and the hosts. The beauty of the area is breathtaking. The actual accomodations are outstanding. The hosts could not be more gracious - they truly go above and beyond. The food was absolutely delicious. The coffee was the best we have ever had. We only wish we would have stayed longer. Thank you Nancy and Steve for a fabulous vacation.

Yes this property has awe inspiring views of the Waipio Valley and the ocean beyond. But what really sets this property apart is the care of the owners. The best black sand beach in the world is a fun adventure to walk to. The two friendly dogs also were a delight. I wish these owners rented other properties on the island.

Spectacular views, and what an incredible attention to detail. Highly recommend worth every cent. Breakfast was incredible too! A must stay and see for yourself. The walk was very steep down to the beach but absolutely worth it.

Our room and view were spectacular, the food was amazing but most importantly we made two new friends with Nancy and Steve as they treated us like family as thou we have known each other for years. Thank you for making our stay PRICELESS!!!

You have to visit it yourself!! Best B&B location on the island hands down! Great breakfast which can be burned off with a hike down the valley to one of the waterfalls then back up. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to be alone -- you truly do feel by yourselves during your stay. We will be coming back for another stay next Decemeber. Thank you Steve and Nancy for sharing your B&B with us.
