We just got back from our stay at Ho'oilo House in Maui last week. This B&B is a gem; our entire stay was blissful. Everything was wonderful - serene green property grounds, our unique Bali style suite, the living/common areas. We stayed in the Kipuka Suite and loved everything about it. Here is a list of things we enjoyed about our suite:
* The generous suite size
* Comfortable king size bed with high quality linens
* Spa like outdoor shower
* Natural paraben/sulphate free bath products
* Bath robes and Turkish cotton towels
* Beautiful private lanai facing the gardens
* Regular housekeeping (believe me all B&Bs do not offer daily housekeeping which can get a little annoying)
The B&B hosts - Dan and Amy were amazing and a great asset for local information. They were extremely friendly and yet provided privacy to the guests. All recommendations we got from them (from restaurants to things to do were great). They provided us beach umbrella, sun hats and chairs (which honestly are a must if you were going to use public beaches)
The breakfast every morning was great, one thing to note as stated by other reviewers is that it is almost the same breakfast everyday (besides the baked vegan muffins, scones - which were yummy). I didn’t have any problem with that but my husband got a bit bored of eating the same every day. Their website states exactly what the breakfast will be, just something to know I guess(http://www.hooilohouse.com/your-visit/breakfast.htm). My favorite was all day access to variety of loose leaf tea. Every morning, we enjoyed waking up early, sitting in our lanai listening to the chirping birds... We enjoyed eating our breakfast by the pool every morning with ocean views and chit chatting with fellow guests.
As mentioned by other reviewers, there are geckos/insects outdoors and in the lanai - again they are part of Hawaiian outdoors, we were not bothered by them atall. One thing to improve on - I think the Lanai could use extra cleaning (sweeping the floors more regularly and cleaning the chairs cushions etc), again I think it is probably impossible to keep it spot less given the outdoor winds and leaves from the garden... The pool was very clean.
All in all, I think this place is great value for your $$ (at least for Maui) and a really good option to stay at if you are looking for peace and are OK with driving 5-10 minutes to the closest beach. For something of equivalent luxury at a resort(if possible to find) you would be paying upwards of 600-800$+ per night(if not a lot more).
This was our Babymoon trip and we truly enjoyed every moment of it. On last day of our stay, Amy and Dan left chocolate covered strawberries and cider in our room with a cute bedtime story book for our baby. It was very thoughtful of them to do so. Again, our entire experience yet again validates our love for B&Bs and this one being exceptional in quality and hospitality.
