Stayed here a few weeks ago and now that we're back home... a highlight of our trip include sitting on the porch at this bnb and enjoying the view, the welcome bottle of wine, and pupus. Everything else has already been said by other reviewers. Only bad thing is that they are closing soon - glad I could grab this...

The best secluded getaway with the best breathtaking views! Nice to hear the sounds of nature in the forest at the same hearing the crashing waves of the ocean! Cant get any better than that. Also awesome hosts :)

I woke up here thinking I was in Paradise. Nancy and Steve are great hosts with great taste, and the location is unique in the world. But go quickly, as they are closing indefinitely on June 10th of this year.

We were in the island for two weeks and wanted to end our trip with a peaceful and beautiful place so we booked this B&B for our last three nights. It far exceeded our high expectations. It has an amazing view with privacy/solitude. The food was great. Nancy and Steve were very knowledgeable and helpful. We were arriving late and...

Spectacular stay during our honeymoon. The photos don't really prepare you for the view. Others have mentioned the welcome pupus and wine which is a great way to end a long drive. The room is great - really tastefully decorated, super comfy bed, great bathroom. The real surprise, though, was the breakfasts: locally sourced (e.g. cacao chips from the back...

We wanted more than a resort experience in Hawaii and found a piece of heaven at this B n B. The tree house was luxurious and it was overlooking a truly spectacular view of Waipio rim. From listening to the waves and birds to the scents of wild flowers blooming, it was a blessing to be there. Breakfasts were made...

My husband and I feel so fortunate that we were able to stay at Waipio Rim in the small house one "books" overlooking beautiful Waipio Valley and the ocean. Accommodations are private, immaculate, well appointed and offer the perfect departure into the natural beauties of Hawaii. We were on a two week Hawaii vacation and this stay at the mid...

This was our second stay with Nancy & Steve. We stayed 2 nights with a 4-year old. We felt right at home by the warm welcome. My daugthers bed was made and we loved the wine and pupu's. The views are so grand, almost unreal. Just sitting at our lanai, enjoying them was heavenly. In the morning we had wonderful...

We extended our vacation to spend two more days here. This was a perfect place to wind down after an activity-packed seven days on the Big Island. The location is spectacular and the accommodations are great - well maintained and nicely decorated. Thank you Nancy for the tasty meals and special thanks to Steve for taking us down into the...

We stayed at the Waipio Rim a couple years ago (July 2014) and just now getting to this review. The property is beautiful and has amazing views. The snacks and breakfasts they provided were so good. One morning we had crepes with a lemon curd sauce and incredibly enough, we ate them all! We spent 2 nights here and hiked...
