To all guest you must wait at the lookout until i arrive to guide you into the Valley. Aloha and welcome to Spring Side Hale Surrounded by 2,500-foot cliffs, a journey into the Valley of the Kings requires a steep hike or 4x4 (four wheel drive). Now however, the valley is mostly wilderness interspersed with taro fields (Taro is a traditional Hawaiian staple food) and a couple of dozens of inhabitants. Waipiʻo Valley Road is closed to non-residents. Visitor access to the valley floor and the subsequent valleys is only possible as part of a tour or if you know someone in the valley. The Waipiʻo Lookout is still accessible for everyone. Waipio Valley is a stunning scenic destination with a black sand beach, beautiful waterfalls and Hawaiian historical & cultural significance. It is a very spiritual place of healing, a place of connection with nature and a walk through the past, where time ceases to exist.We pretty much live the off grid lifestyle, escape the hustle (rat race), unplug, enjoy your surroundings, become one with nature, and give back to the ancestor of the valley by interacting/participating with farmers who reside in the valley. Possibly see wild horses wondering the trails or playing on the beach. Eat a wide range of fruits straight from the tree. Explore miles of trails, rivers, and waterfalls right outside your front door.

Awesome place to camp
This place was amazing. The beach, views in the valley, and hosts were spectacular! Kama and Mathias were terrific hosts and went above and beyond to ensure I had a good time. This is a beautiful place to stay for the fantastic valley and beach, or venture up and over the trail into Waimanu Valley. Mosquitos were out in full force while I was there, but it was just after a long period of rain and pretty manageable. This place is truly one of a kind!

Truly amazing place
Words can’t fully express how special this place is. Very few visitors get to stay in Waipi’o Valley, which is a sacred and historic location in Hawaiian culture. Kama and Mathias are some of the most welcoming people I’ve ever met. True aloha spirit. Be prepared to battle some mosquitoes and pack as if you’re going backpacking. This would be a great stop on the Muliwai trail to Waimanu Valley. I’ll be back for sure!

Waipio is sacred and beautiful, having the privilege to camp down in the valley was such a blessing. Kama was incredibly hospitable and was more of a tour guide excited to share his land. I would 100% recommend. Pack only what you need. It’s a hike to get to, and a true adventure. Mahalo Nui Kama! Look forward to coming down again.
