There are many good bed & breakfast options in Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii. These are our favorite picks:
Waimea Gardens Cottage Bed and Breakfast
Small, upmarket bed and breakfast with extremely hospitable hosts.
Beautifully located bed and breakfast. Private, spacious suites, beautifully appointed and meticulously maintained, with living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, TVs and private lanais.
Romantic (or somewhat run-down, depending on who you ask) bed and breakfast on a historic estate. There are eight rooms and suites housed in buildings such as former bunkhouses for Parker Ranch ranchhands. Modest plantation style exteriors belie sumptuous interiors. Each room has a comfortable sitting area and a grand bathroom. This is not a B & B in the true sense of the words, and there isn’t a front desk. The owners however are around and available. Note that there is no wifi available.
Aaah the views
Our favorite bed and breakfast in Waimea. They get excellent reviews from their guests. Located on the outskirts of Waimea in a beautiful setting and with true island hospitality, a local gem! [update 2016: Aaah the views appears to be closed –we will update this listing as soon as we find out more]
