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. This was one of the most relaxing vacations my partner and I have ever spent. We are definitely planning to go back....

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...

We are back from visiting for three nights, with four people in our family (three adults and one pre-teen). This is a fantastic place with fantastic hosts. To match what others have commented; the breakfasts are Hawaiian greatness (and cute for kids), the view is the best we have ever had for nature (including extra waterfalls after a rain), your...

Steve and Nancy The view into the valley is one of the best anyone will ever see. We had a great time, the place is awesome. The chilled wine in the refrigerator was a great touch. The breakfast was great and the service was superb! When we return to the Big Island this will the place we will stay. Thanks...

First of all this beautiful B&B has to have one of the top 25 views (top 10?) in the world offered by a B&B. I kid you not and it was certainly the best view from a B&B in our travels. Perched above a 1000 foot drop to a valley and black sand beach below, the view is breathtaking As...

We very much enjoyed our stay at Waipio Rim. The room has nice furniture and is lovely decorated. The view from the terrace is amazing. We also loved the pupus as well as the breakfast prepared by our friendly hosts, Nancy and Steve.

I have waited a few weeks to write this review, because I have been looking for the right words to express how wonderful this place is. I'm not certain I have found them, but I'll try. There is no place on the Big Island that is more serene or more beautiful. My daughter and I were privileged to be there....

Can't add many more compliments than what's already been said. Beautiful place in a beautiful setting. Cool, comfortable apartment with tasteful yet functional furnishings. Mac nut pancakes were the best. Nancy and Steve are wonderful people and great hosts. Would love to return.

Nancy and Steve have a gem. This is a one of a kind B&B. My husband and I are in our mid 20s and this was our first time staying in a non-resort accommodation. I have no clue why we have been throwing our money down the drain for so many years at resorts! The room is so comfortable and...

After staying at the Rim in Dec. of 2011, we decided to return this Dec. What a great choice we made. The accomodations, as we found them to be on our first visit, are the best, clean, comfortable and very relaxing. The sound of waves on the beach below lull you to sleep each night and gently welcome the mornings...
