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...

We had a wonderful time staying at Steve and Nancy's bnb. The space is cozy and comfortable. Good water pressure and hot water. Delicious breakfast served on the patio with a million+ dollar view. We had to depart early in order to catch an 8AM flight, and Steve had coffee ready for us (with to-go cups) when we woke up...

Beautiful, exhilarating and fun! Great host and a nice waterfall/swim lunch! We were in awe of the many photo stop viewing places and the atvs were safe and fun! Looking forward to returning for another spin around the rim in the spring. I am looking forward to seeing all the Jacaranda trees in full bloom then!

Amazing view,fantastic hosts, very comfortable room, top class breakfasts. Thankyou very much Steve and Nancy. Would love to visit you again some time. Great beach below and a nice hike to the falls. The hike does require a certain level of fitness.

Waipio Rim B&B is without a doubt the most amazing place my wife and I have ever stayed. We've been to the Grand Hyatt on Kauai, quaint hotels in Paris, and 5-start resorts all over the world, but nothing compares to Waipio Rim. This place wins on 3 factors: location, ownership, and food. Location: it can't be beat. The photos...

So much better than an hotel! The house is located on top of the Waimea Valley, it is very quiet and offers an amazing view. The room is fantastic as well, very nicely decorated, and the breakfast is delicious. Definitely the best place we have been to during our vacation in Hawaii, we'd love to come back again. Thank you...

We enjoyed every detail of the house, the breakfasts, Steve and Nancy's hospitality, and of course the view! We came back for our anniversary because we loved it so much the first time. Look no further and stay here before they close indefinitely in June 2017! Thank you for a memorable stay, Steve and Nancy. Enjoy your retirement!

First thing we said. Then we inside and said WOW!! What a gorgeous place to stay! Add to this two fantastic people and the absolutely wonderful breakfast, and surprise snack, and it is a wonder anyone ever leaves. Had the best smoothie ever after coming back from the long walk down to the beach. The Band B sits atop the...
