We usually travel to Hawaii twice a year and very much enjoyed our stay at the Waipio Wayside for four nights. Jacqueline, the proprietor, is a fascinating person with many interests. My husband, who is an artist, enjoyed talking to her about her photography and her vacations in Japan. She also knows all the restaurants in the area and recommened Allen's Table in Waimea for a wonderful dinner-and it was.
But back to the B&B, we had the Birdseye Room--a large, beautifully decorated room at the back of the house, right off the multi level lanai. The bed was comfortable and had a good reading light which was great since I like to read a little before drifting off to sleep to the song of the coqui frogs. Also loved the wonderful organic toiletries provided in the bathroom.
The breakfasts are delicious--always containing lovely tropical fruit and great coffee. And we enjoyed the lively conversation at the breakfast table. It's always nice to meet people from all over the US and world, for that matter, and learn about them and talk about their experience in Hawaii.
I'm sure we will return to Waipio Wayside in the future.
