This was a beautiful B&B. My fiance and I started our honeymoon off here before heading to the Hyatt Regency. It is a great change of pace from the larger hotels. The Ho'oilo house is in a remote location overlooking the ocean. The owners Dan and Amy are very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here on your next visit to Maui!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Superb Romantic Retreat"
I miss it already! The Ho'oilo House is as romantic and peaceful a place one could hope for on a honeymoon or other couples vacation. The decorations and stylings of the rooms, pool and grounds were aesthetically superior to any hotel and it was very private. We loved the outdoor shower and the views of the ocean every morning. Our hosts were helpful […] and provided us with lots of good tips and advice to maximize our trip, and they allowed us to borrow beach toys, guide books and other handy items for fun during our stay. We loved it and can't wait to return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nalu room has a perfect view from the bedroom especially the shower placeGenuine Expedia guest review
Great view of ocean from afar (hilltop view); Quiet, residential neighborhood; Beautiful house; Great hosts; Small Bed & Breakfast feel / less 'anonymous' feel than a large hotel; Yummy organic breakfast choices; Small to med sized pool that is not heated; Bali-esque feel with outdoor showers, but with that comes the random giant bugs that come with […] outdoor accessible places.

"Great!!! Nice View!! Great Room!!"
This is one of the best hotels I have been. It has a great scenic view and great room. The host was very kind and made me borrow some beach stuff. I want to go back to this hotel in the near future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice view, good location, very quiet"
We stayed here for our honeymoon. We really enjoyed the ocean view and sunset everyday from the private patio (although anybody can walk into your patio). Everything was clean. Great customer service. Breakfast was very good also. The bathroom had no door, so I could see my husband using toilet from lying on the bed... (I had to ask him to leave when […] I had to use it). I guess some rooms have doors, so you might wanna pick one of those rooms if you are not comfortable using bathrooms in front of somebody. Shower was outside, so when I wanted to take a shower at night, it was dark, super windy, and cold. It looks very nice, though. We had the romantic package which I highly recommend. Glenn, the chef, was very friendly and professional. The food was excellent!! Expensive but it's worth it!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ho'oilo House - cant wait to go back!"
Ho'oilo House is a great place to stay and relax in Maui. Both Amy and Dan are extremely welcoming and they both go out of their way to make sure guests are really looked after ! We hope to go back soon. Its a great house in a really peaceful surrounding. A nice place to relax and offers something different to the usual resort/ hotel chainsGenuine Expedia guest review
Wir verbrachten hier wunderschöne und erholsame Tage. Die Zimmer sind sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, unser Badezimmer hatte sogar eine Aussendusche. Zum Frühstück gab es frischgebackenes Brot und frischen Obstsalat. Wer das Meer nicht in absoluter Nähe haben muss und ein Auto zur Verfügung hat, macht hier garantiert nichts falsch. Eine absolute Empfehlung […] von mir! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolutes Muss in Maui"
Wir haben 1 Woche im Ho'oilo House verbracht in unseren Flitterwochen. Es hätte keine bessere Unterkunft geben können. Man fühlt sich so privat und wie zu Hause. Ich bin schon viel gereist, aber etwas dergleichen noch NIE gesehen!! Absolut der Wahnsinn. Das Frühstück war inbegriffen und es gab jeden Tag frischen Fruchsalat und Toast. Die Zimmer sind […] unglaublich, die Aussendusche zum Schwärmen. Die Unterkunft ist ca. 5Min von Lahaina entfernt und somit an einer super Lage. Wer es unabhängig mag und nicht auf grosse Hotelketten steht, ist hier genau richtig. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Traumhafte Unterkunft auf Maui"
Wir hatten 6 Nächte das Vergnügen in diesem traumhaften Anwesen zu wohnen. Diese Unterkunft ist wirklich eine Oase der Ruhe in sehr stilvollem Ambiente. Die Zimmer sind sehr ansprechend und sauber. Das Frühstück kann im traumhaften Poolbereich mit sensationellem Blick auf die Insel Lanai eingenommen werden und bietet einen perfekten Start in den Tag. […] Das Ho'oilo House können wir zu 100% weiterempfehlen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Wish we could stay here again"
08/28/14 Richrun24 Swindon
After a long flight from the UK we arrived at Ho'olio House in the dark (the sat nav was invaluable) not knowing what to expect. As it was late our hosts had left us a key and a welcoming letter explaining which was our room and the times for breakfast. Our first impressions were that we were walking into someone’s beautiful home which was furnished perfectly to compliment the amazing open plan entrance and sitting area. On waking the next morning and venturing outside our breath was taken away by the incredible views from the garden, the wonderful swimming pool and the design and location of what was going to be our home for the next three days. We helped ourselves to a superb breakfast which we ate by the pool soaking up the sunshine and perfect silence. Afterwards Dan, our host, suggested that we take the car to Lahaina, explore the town and have lunch in one of the many restaurants. We followed his advice and had a great time. We cannot praise Ho'olio House enough which is probably the best accommodation that we have ever stayed in. It’s ideal if you want a peaceful break in a fantastic location with excellent breakfasts in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The experience will remain with us for ever!!! We only wish that it was not so far from the UK.
"Don't pass this place up"
08/08/14 Mike6868 Boston, Massachusetts
Just got back from our honeymoon and the Ho'oilo House was one of the highlights of the trip. It is in the perfect area, set away from the chaos of hotel chains along blackrock beach, yet still only a 10 minute drive to said beach - a 4 minute drive to Front Street. Dan, the owner, was knowledgable, funny, and friendly - happy to help at every turn. They put out a delicious breakfast every morning and keep the residence looking immaculate. This was a little pricier than what me and my wife are used to but it was absolutely worth it. Don't stay anywhere else!

What a great place to stay, Dan and Amy were fantastic hosts. The breakfast was really good with lots of fresh fruit, home made bread and lovely juices. We had a hic up with our car hire and did not end up with a car but no need to worry, it was really easy to get a taxi up and down. taxi was there in under 10 min and was about $20 to get to Lahaina. Will definatly stay here again on our next trip to Maui
"Perfect place for a wedding"
06/09/14 AyBeeOh Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
We were married at Ho'oilo House a few years ago, so although our experience can't be called "recent," it may still be helpful for anyone considering a wedding on site. For us, our wedding (just the two of us, the minister, and the photographer) went off without a hitch. We worked with the recommended coordinator (Leah, though that may have changed) and everything was planned and executed perfectly from beginning to end. We shipped our dress and suit ahead of time, and the coordinator made sure they were pressed and ready to go. She also handled the flowers, which we selected ahead of time, and they were perfect. The woman who did my hair and makeup was awesome, and the minister we chose (Kimo) was delightful. Our photos were just beautiful with the Maui mountains and ocean as the backdrop. It was exactly what we wanted in a wedding--a simple, elegant ceremony. If you're a control freak, this may not be the option for you, but we wanted a low-stress wedding, and we sure got it! One note: if you want to be married ON a beach, look elsewhere--but at least in our experience, the photographer drove with us to a small beach at the bottom of the hill, where we got some good shots. We chose Ho'oilo House because it was small (read: private) and adults-only (again, may have changed). We stayed in Kohola, which offered a lovely view of the water. The outdoor shower was pretty amazing. The only time we saw other guests was at breakfast (delicious, BTW), and even then everyone seemed to keep to themselves. Note that the location of Ho'oilo House is somewhat residential, so you will have to drive a bit to get to a public beach with parking. But all told, Ho'oilo House is an excellent place to consider for your Maui vacation. I wouldn't be commenting years later if I didn't still believe it to be true!
"Comfortable and awesome views"
06/02/14 643Dre Phoenix, Arizona
Great place to stay. We only stayed one night, but it was an excellent stay. The views are magnificent, food great, and felt very comfortable during stay. Please expect that there may be a few bugs, but no major concern as the enviornment was authentic to a Hawiian experience.
"Amazing experience, again!"
05/28/14 Christopher C freeport, United States
My wife and I recently stayed at the Ho'oilo house for the 2nd time in as many years. We had such a great visit that I am sure we will visit again as soon as possible. The service is friendly and excellent, the room is comfortable and quite, the location can't be beat for location or views.
"Totally relaxing...superb service...great breakfast...fantastic hosts!"

This property is located high above Lahaina with a fantastic view of the sunset. Dan and Amy were superb hosts! Breakfast was relaxing, the outdoor showers were invigorating and the rooms were perfect! Lee and Marsha
"Tranquil & Exquisite Maui Dream"
04/29/14 Jenny W Los Angeles, California
Breathtaking views, peaceful gardens, stunning design, and absolute privacy. We simply can't stop telling people about our dreamy experience at Ho'oilo House. We stayed in the Akala Manu room for 4 nights in early March, and were truly living the Maui dream. Dan, the owner, greeted us with kindness as he gave us a small tour of the beautiful house, and from then on we felt as if the Balinese style palace was all our own. The breakfasts were delicious; fresh tropical fruit & juice, warm baked bread, and Kona coffee poolside. Our beautiful room was private and romantic, with a heavenly stone outdoor shower from which we could enjoy the sun or stars, palms and mountain views. Geckos and insects are part of the tropics, but our encounters with both only happened outdoors. The room was meticulously cleaned each day. They even left us champagne flues when they saw we had a bottle on the shelf! Enjoyed using their beach umbrellas and grass mats. The location is ideal -- just minutes away from beaches and restaurants, in a quiet, affluent neighborhood. A jogging path is nearby, and everywhere the views of the mountain and the ocean are breathtaking. Everyday we dream of returning to Ho'oilo House. It truly is that wonderful!

The views are wonderful and it is convenient short drive into Lahaina, although parking is a nightmare when you get there. the accomodation is good looking and the communal areas are lovely. we stayed in honu and found it small, mainly because the bed is a large 4-poster with a 6" edge that has to be negotiated to get in or out. the decoration was not to our taste, we would have liked more room, perhaps a chair. the TV is in a cupboard which needs to be shut before going to sleep in case you get up in the night and crack your head on the door. the outside shower sounds good but is like having a hose directed at you, the direction, height and sprinkle are not adjustable. the worst bit was that we suffered lots of bites, at firstwe wondered if they were happening outside the property but in the end we came to the conclusion that it was only at night. we did bring the cockroaches to dan's attention and he immediately had the room fumigated. dan was very helpful and friendly.
"Relaxation and Simplicity..."
Spent 5 nights here with my soulmate and it rocked. Our hosts were beyond generous, the breakfast was simple and filling, and the feeling of privacy, silence, and romance were priceless. The suite we stayed in featured a king size bed and a killer outdoor shower with a partial view of the mountains. Full sunset views were 10 seconds away by the pool, and they too were breath-taking. Our only complaints were the occasional bugs in the room (but that was mostly due to the area and some casually opened doors) and the amount of time it took for the shower and bath water to get warm/hot (hint: turn off the water, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again to fix this...repeat if necessary). Overall, it was an amazing mix of Lahaina countryside, gorgeous views, intimate lodging, respectful hosts, and easy access to of the best stuff Maui has to offer. Definitely planning to come back ASAP!!
