Our whole Hawaiian holiday was awesome! Really found a hidden gem at Waipio Rim however! The hosts very friendly loved our evening pupus and our breakfast was fantastic we wished we had more time to spend there enjoying the view and the beautiful accommadation. Our girls particularly enjoyed the frog catching !! What a piece of Heaven !!

Staying at Waipio Rim was the highlight of our 10 day trip to the Island. Steve and Nancy were fabulous hosts, felt like we were staying with friends. Food was great. View is the most amazing. We will definitely plan to stay there again on our next trip to the Big Island but will stay longer. Denise and Andre

What's not to like about Waipio Rim? Nothing! Best hosts, best view, best breakfasts, best whale watching, best beach on the Big Island down below, beautiful accommodations with everything provided for your privacy, comfort and convenience (tv, free wi-fi, fridge, ample closet space, your own covered deck, etc.). Wild horses and a towering waterfall in the valley complete this quiet,...

We stayed here March 2013. We eloped to Hawaii and were looking about for a nice simple place to have the ceremony. They were gracious enough to allow us to have the ceremony at their property. It was so beautiful! The views are amazing. The accommodations are very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were fantastic. The hosts are very kind....

We were only able to book here for one night, which is the worst part of the whole experience. ;) Steve was very prompt in responding to me during the booking process and made me feel at ease with my decision to bring my family of 3 there. As great as it was being able to bring my 7 year...

That was too short to look around Waipio. We could make reservation of this adorable accommodation only one night, orher days are already full when I decided to stay there. I would high recommend you here to book earlier in advance. That place has totally exclusive view and the room has managed and treated well by very nice people, Nancy...

This stay has been pretty amazing from the accommodations, to hospitality, and the list goes on. This was quite possibly the best stay I've ever had, anywhere. Steve and Nancy do a wonderful job at everything they do and provide. This is Hawaii, and at its best. Appetizers the night we arrived and breakfast the next morning were also freshly...

We had booked our two night stay based on some internet research and trip advisor ratings. We didn't arrive at Waipio B&B until after 11 PM because of flight delays. Steve was there at the turn off so we could follow him without getting lost. We were excited about getting there but ready to go to bed after traveling for...

We absolutely LOVED our three nights at Waipi'O Rim. Nancy & Steve were fanastic hosts and the service was top class. The view from the bedroom & patio is surreal. We hiked down to the bottom of the Valley and enjoyed a Black Sand beach. The breakfast each morning was a work of art and ever so tastey. I would...

Tucked away at the end of the road, we found this little piece of paradise. Nancy and Steve were so friendly and just wonderful as hosts. The room was spacious and the decor tasteful, warm and inviting. The view from the veranda is amazing, ocean, valley, lush garden and trees. We just loved it here and intend to come back...
