Welcome to WAIPIO VALLEY NANEA.
Nanea (Na-nay-ah) means tranquility, relaxing, enjoyable, and fascinating; that is exactly what this location is. Our property sits on the 1000 foot cliffs leading to the historic Waipio Valley, or Valley Of the Kings, where many of the ancient Hawaiian ali’i (kings) once resided. This is a very sacred place steeped in Hawaiian history. The stunningly beautiful Waipio Valley is verdant and lush, teaming with waterfalls, fishponds, hiking trails and rivers that lead to a pristine mile long black sand beach.
The ‘Ohana (family guest cottage) which adjoins our home is a newly constructed large studio with 2 private entrances, one with a private patio. The living space is open and fills with sunlight. It features a romantic four post teak bed, a kitchenette area with everything you will need to cook and enjoy a lovely meal, a spacious bathroom with slate floors, granite counters, a walk-in shower big enough for two, a walk-in closet, and a lounge area with a peek-a-boo view of the ocean. A stroll through the back yard puts you right at the cliffs edge, with expansive views of the ocean, the valley cliffs and even Maui, on a clear day. It’s quiet, peaceful, and intimate; the perfect place to come home to after your adventures and explorations of the Big Island. Use ‘Waipio Valley Nanea’ as your base for day hikes into Waipio Valley, or for more adventurous travelers, camping trips into Waimanu Valley. A hot shower and cozy bed will always await you upon your return.

We've spent the majority of our lives traveling, looking for that 'place' that stops us from looking, and we believe we have found paradise here. Before we moved to the Big Island of Hawaii we were living and sailing on our 31 foot trimaran. We are adventure travelers, always searching for that unforgettable experience, and we know what it's like finding it, and then wanting a hot shower and clean cozy bed to curl up in at the end of the day, or at end of a few days of hiking, camping, or exploring. We are both avid sailors, surfers, divers, hikers, naturalists and environmentalists. I have been a scuba diving guide and tour guide and know how rewarding it is to help people stop and appreciate the moment, and I must say, every moment here will overwhelm you with extreme natural beauty. We look forward to meeting you.

We love the ocean, the tropics and the simple life. The Hamakua Coast of the Big Island is all that and more. From it's small bucolic towns, epic ocean views and expansive green countryside to it's welcoming communities and families. The low population density means no traffic, and no stress. We are often the only ones on the beach in Waipio Valley and have the surf all to ourselves. The intoxicating smell of wild ginger fills the air, mingling with the scent of sweet guava and gardenia. The wildlife is abundant, wild horse graze freely in the valley and it's a birdwatchers dream. In the winter months we sit on the cliffs and watch the Humpback Whales spy hopping and breaching. And finally, it seems as though there is always a pocket of sunshine on the cliffs of Waipio Valley : )
