We could only would recommend this B&B to anyone. stay one night, but this is one place you must stay if you come to the Big Island. Make sure you get directions because it can be hard to find and it is at the end of the road. The view is stunning, the accommodations are first class and the breakfast...

Steve and Nancy have found a truly magical spot on this earth. The rest of us are lucky that they have kind, generous spirits and want to share Waipio Rim with others. We had a fantastic time exploring and hiking the area. The accommodations are *sparkling clean*, breakfast was delicious (esp. the coffee - nice and robust!) the hosts are...

If your wanting a "One of a Kind" experience, this place is for you! It's at the end of the road and that means privacy at it's best. Steve and Nancy, what can I say but they were incredible hosts, coffee and tea delivered when we woke and then later a scrumptious breakfast. Oh how we hated to leave and...

This was our first ever stay at a bed and breakfast and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. Amazing location and views, fantastic hosts, terrific breakfasts, great room and so much more. We stayed 3 nights but could have easily spent our entire vacation here. It's very peaceful and there's plenty in the area to explore. Thank you so much...

This place is beyond words! We had the priviledge of spending 5 beautiful nights at the Waipio Rim B&B and get married there during our stay. It was perfect. Not only is the view awe-inspiring, but what makes this place so special are definitely Steve and Nancy (the owners). The room is lovely and you can tell first glance how...

We spent two nights with Steve and Nancy and had a wonderful time. The B&B is located in a beautiful spot just at the entrance to the Waipio Valley and the view is breathtaking. The room is very spacious and spotless. If you plan on visiting the Waipio Valley, this is definitely the place to stay.

My wife and I stayed with Steve and Nancy in February of 2013 and we loved the experience so much we decided to return again in February 2014.

The view is breathtakingly beautiful. Having a meal at the lanai is most relaxing. Steve and Nancy are the most attentive hosts. Breakfasts are delicious, flavorful and home made. There is great attention to details; from landscape, decor to the tile in the shower. We joined a shuttle tour to Waipio Valley, it is indeed a special place, untouched and...

A breathtakingly beautiful location (the view from the lanai is amazing), combined with the most hospitable and thoughtful hosts, spectacularly delicious homemade breakfasts, and a lovely room with enormous attention to detail and the needs of the guests.

I had been to Waipio Valley on two prior trips to the Big Island and it became one of my favorite places in the world. I wanted to show my husband the island and was thrilled when fate gave us the last two days of our vacation at the Waipio Rim B&B! It just happened to have a rare opening...
