“Private, Scenic, Perfect”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

Belle Vue Waimea was the perfect spot for our few nights in Waimea. Located on a hillside above the town, the view was spectacular and the surroundings quiet. On the other side of the road were cattle grazing, but looking downhill you could see Mauna Kea to the left, Mauna Loa straight ahead and the coast to the right. Spectacular! Not to mention that every time you stepped outside the fragrant flowers welcomed you.

Our studio room was large, with a king-size bed, futon, couch, dresser, TV, free wifi, closet. The kitchen was well-stocked with breakfast items. Shampoo and soap were provided in the bathroom. Tatami mats were even on hand for some beachgoing.

The proprietors were very friendly and responsive, providing all kinds of advice for our time in the area. We could have stayed here much longer than we did and been quite happy. A great place!

Room Tip: We had the studio at the base of the stairs, which probably had the "worst" view of all th...

Best place for the price. The penthouse room has excellent view of the sunset. Kitchen and restroom were very clean. Couch could have been cleaner. The host was very courteous and had great suggestions.
Nearby attractions: mauna kea observatory, upolo pt, pololu valley and waipio valley. Do not miss out the drive up to mauna kea(its cold up there - take a jacket)
Nice restaurants nearby.

The name of the place speaks for itself, it offers a stunning view on the valley! The penthouse suite offers the best sunset ever!
The penthouse is incredibly cosy and perfect place for lovers! We recommend to go spend the evening there enjoying cooking and chilling out in the sofa with a glass of wine

My family and I were visiting O'ahu last March and decided to spend some time on the Big Island. We called around to several B&B's a couple days in advance, but were not having much luck since everyone was full. We contacted Vivian, but she too was booked, but could get us in later in the week. She offered some other recommendations for other B&B and hotels in the area. We thought, how nice, and made some more calls, but still everyone was booked. Fortunately for us, we adjusted our plans and called her back and booked the opening she had. I'm so glad we did, the hospitality was wonderful, the location is beautiful, the spacious living area was clean and pleasing to sit in and relax. We pretty much knew that this location would be a home base to go off and do things around the island, but now wished we had planned some time to stay a whole day at the B&B and enjoy the view of the ocean and the garden. We were also traveling with our young girls and they enjoyed the stay as well. They got a bit noisy at times, but our neighbors couldn’t hear them (nor could we hear them), so all was peaceful! There’s a grocery store not so far away, it’s located near coffee plantations and the chocolate factory, and is a good base to go far off for day trips.
We had a great time and were very comfortable here and would definitely make reservations for our next trip. Thank you Vivian for your great hospitality!

My friend and I stayed here for one night as we were doing a road trip around the Big Island. When we booked the place, they told us which unit it would be and to just make ourselves comfortable. We walked into what we thought was the place we were renting and it looked like someone's home. We were in the right place and pleasantly surprised. Our place was very spacious with a kitchen, living room, and bedroom. There were even supplies for breakfast pre-stocked in the kitchen for us. The parking situation was a little tight so I parked the car on the street nearby, but it wasn't a problem to find space. I would definitely return but next time I'll stay for longer!!

(BV WAIMEA REVIEW, PLEASE SEE FURTHER BELOW FOR A REVIEW OF BV KONA) We arrived at BV Waimea around diner time, with no one to greet us or tell us which room was ours. We knocked at the door that looked like the main entrance, only to bother another guest who was just as clueless as we were. We walked around abit and eventually made it to an apartment which matched the site description for the studio. There was a key under the mat, so we went in. The studio was very spacious and convenient. However, we were completely puzzled as to the 'breakfast' in the fridge: an opened milk carton, an unopened soymilk carton, two old apples, cereals, an opened jam jar, bread, a ridiculously small amount of sugar, two energy bars and some oatmeal. Were these things our 'breakfast' or wasit leftovers from the previous guests? We ended up eating the oatmeal, and the next day the fridge was just like we left it, so we had to resort to something else. We tried calling the 'service' numbers for info, but no one picked up. When we finally bumbed into someone the next day, Gayland, he nicely asked if everything had been to our liking, but dismissed up very defensively as soon as we mentioned the no-greeting part, so we didn't even mention the breakfast. (BV KONA REVIEW) After that experience, we were quite afraid to go to the Kona one.. but how wrong we were! Vivian was there to greet us and converse a little bit with us (in French!) before showing us around. We could see right away what a woman's touch could do. The place was spotless and welcoming, and the fridge was filled with the same menu as the one BV, but the cartons were unopened, and there was also yogourt, juice, fresh garden bananas and homemade banana muffins. The view from the lanai was breathtaking (without mentioning all the cute birdies!). We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend BV Kona without hesitation.

Vivian is a sweetheart. Bumped us up to the top suite so we are obviously a little biased but there were amazing views, breakfast was pre-stocked for us in our mini fridge (muffins, granola, Quaker oatmeal, milk/soy milk!!, raisin bran type cereal but way tastier, butter, kona coffee and decaf, sugar, jam, bread) really friendly and clean and nice rooms. All the necessities including toiletries you might have forgotten. Seriously the best.
