“Privacy, tranquil, sunsets, Maui paradise!”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

If you want to be away from the crowds in magnificent accommodations, this is the place for you. Ideal for couples wanting to get away to relax or pack your day with great day trips. Highlights are the outdoor showers in your private bath while listening to the birds or watching the stars and fabulous breakfasts. Thanks Dan and Amy for your hospitality and tips on seeing the fantastic sites that Maui has to offer.

Amy and Dan at Ho'oilo House make this B&B special. It is an adult get away and perfect for people looking to get away from the city without being too far out. It is quaint, cozy, relaxing, and just what my mom and I were looking for on our trip to Maui. It's a place to relax and unwind and enjoy the views. Every morning, I was greeted with a sunny outdoor shower and a fresh breakfast of fruit, yogurt, island granola, eggs, and homemade muffins and bread. Amy and Dan are Vegan/Vegetarian-friendly and can accommodate special breakfast requests. There is also 24-hour loose leaf tea and coffee available. Amy and Dan are friendly and full of fun suggestions of places to go and sites to see. The free wi-fi/intranet was useful and much appreciated. PERFECT place for a nice vacation. I can't wait to go back and stay in one of the other rooms to see what they have to offer.

Room Tip: All rooms are unique and special.

We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing 3 nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast. Dan and Amy are fabulous hosts and everything was perfect! We enjoyed wonderful yummy breakfasts each morning poolside and there is nothing quite like an outdoor shower with blue skies, ocean view and beautiful birdsong!

Once you pass between the magnificent carved doors of Ho'oilo House, you are stepping into a tranquil oasis! The entire property is beautifully decorated, creating an artful and serene atmosphere. No detail has been overlooked in providing an unforgettable experience. The natural beauty that is Hawaii surrounds this property-early morning rainbows, misty green mountains, ocean views and remarkable sunsets. The mouth watering breakfasts are superb and can be enjoyed on your lanai or around the pool area. The "music" of the water flowing from three large bowels into the pool lulls you into a relaxed state. This property is by far one of the most relaxing spots. It is a perfect spot to de-stress and just just be! There in December and can't wait until our return in April!!

Room Tip: Honu is magnificent. Private, great views of ocean and mountains. Oh the tub and the outside shower...

Chances are, if you book at Ho'oilo House, you're looking for a tropical escape away from the crowded resorts of Lahaina and that is just what you'll get at this stunning property. It is a meticulously decorated and maintained sanctuary just a 10 minute drive outside downtown Lahaina. It truly is a hidden gem, so well-removed that you may not see it immediately up the very long shared driveway, but don't despair: you just have to follow the road all the way to the top and it's there on the right.

When we arrived on January 4, Amy and Dan - the famed owners - were away on vacation so they left their Uncle Hal in charge. He was more than helpful upon arrival when we reiterated my dietary restrictions for breakfast, then he graciously left us to our honeymoon business. You won't be hounded here like some other B&B's to take part in communal anything, thank goodness. This is truly "our house is your house" and you can come and go as you please. In fact, we never even saw the other guests the entire four night stay even though they were totally full!

Some standouts: the palatial suites have lovely touches like antique furnishings. We stayed in Nalu with the Chinese Wedding Bed (rather crib-like but cool) and the outdoor shower looked over Lanai in the distance. What more could you ask for, showering with 180 degree views of the Pacific? This is an Eco-friendly B&B so they aren't big on fresh towels every day unless requested. Breakfasts are healthy and delicious and usually include muffins, fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, coffee and fresh juices. If you're off early on an excursion, they will pack you a breakfast to-go and put it in your room by 9:00 PM the previous night. Now THAT is aloha. The landscaping was so perfect, we actually felt like we were in some Merchant Ivory film set in the South Pacific.

The experience at Ho'oilo House is unique in the Hawaiian Islands - and on Maui, especially - so do yourself a favor and consider not staying at one of the monster resorts in Kaanapali and book this tranquil slice of Bali instead.

Room Tip: Stay in the "back" of the house, facing the ocean (Nalu or Honu, I believe). The ocean vi...

This location is for couples looking for a quite, beautiful and restful place (ie. no kids here). 6 rooms with very cool outdoor showers. Hosts, Dan & Amy do a fantastic job of making your stay comfortable and effortless. We really liked that it's located only 5 minutes from town but is very private and quite. I couldnt wait to enjoy breakfast poolside. Lots of fresh choices and yummy baking daily. Linger with a good book or use the free wi-fi to plan your day around town. We used their cooler to take lunch to the beach for snorkeling. There's a fridge in your room to accomodate cocktail hour & snacks. The landscaping is to die for, so tropical. The Bali influenced construction is unique and allows you to enjoy the beauliful weather at every turn, very open to the outdoors. Loved it, will return.

Room Tip: Mountain view seemed more private then ocean view since common areas also face ocean, either are fan...

I know that to say that a place is Heaven on Earth is a bit cliche, but this Ho'oilo House truly is! My husband and I stayed there all 10 days of our dream honeymoon, and couldn't be happier with our decision. Dan and Amy are incredibly welcoming, in addition to being fantastic bakers (we miss our Ho'oilo House breakfasts!!!) and great resources for information about things to do on the island. Dan recommended that we go to Haleakala one of our first mornings there before we had adjusted to the time change, which was brilliant advice! He recommended the Pacific Whale Foundation's snorkeling tour, and we had an amazing time (and arrived at Molokini before any other boats, giving us the best snorkeling of the day!). He had wonderful recommendations for restaurants. Dan and Amy took care of all of the details for us to get a couple's massage just outside of our room. They are excellent hosts! Our room (Honu) was beautiful - it seems that no detail was overlooked. I would highly recommend Ho'oilo House to anyone - and have actually talked with a few people who are considering honeymoon destinations about what a great place it is. It is far and away the nicest, most beautiful place either my husband or I have stayed. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Honu room and loved it, but I'm sure all of the rooms are wonderful. We mostly...
