“a quaint and quiet vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

We wanted to stay close to a party we were attending in upcountry Maui and found this gem of a vacation! We've never tried a B&B before and this was a fantastic choice for our situation.
The price was right and we read other reviews for this place and was not disappointed. We booked the Aloha suite because we wanted to have our own bathroom. The room was big enough for us and it really felt like home. It was fully furnished just like your own house from extra towels to the fully equipt and stocked gourmet kitchen.
We checked out the backyard and it was secluded, quiet and very well maintained. At the time we were there, there was just 1 other couple, but saw them just once because we had stuff to do and so did they. Our room came with breakfast and the owners left out breakfast items: 2 kinds of bread, butter and jelly, 2 types of cereal w/milk, 2 kinds of juices,coffee w/cream and sugar,tea,cocoa,3 types of fresh fruit,yogurt, It was a nice spread considering it is included with the room. We liked that we felt at home, we hung out in the parlor and they had direct tv. The weather at the time felt cool and airy with occassional sprinkles-well it is upcountry after all. The weather up there is so much more cooler and wet anyway.
I highly recommend booking this place because it is just wonderful being in a place that is so relaxed, quiet, secluded and homey. It is well maintained inside and out. The price is great as well. We definitely will be back to stay whenever we visit Maui.

Jeana and Justin have created a very comfortable and peaceful retreat center. We came for our own personal retreat and it was perfect. Wish we could have experienced their spa services - they sound amazing. We stayed in the Lehua Cottage - the room was incredibly clean and comfortable, had everything we needed and we didn't mind driving to where we wanted to go. Close to Pa'ia (a wonderful, quirky beach town) and Makawao on Maui. The only reason for 4 out of 5 stars is because you need to drive to destinations as opposed to more centrally located accommodations, but we didn't mind. Our desire for this time in Hawaii wasn't a 5-star hotel and we found exactly what we were looking for at Hale Ho'omana. Jeana, Justin, and their staff exude the Hawaiian spirit of aloha and go out of their way to make you feel so very comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay.

I had been to Hawaii, but this particular trip blew away my expectations in so many ways.
I loved the spirit and the place where we stayed in Makawao.
I can't say enough about the people and service at Hale Ho'omana, they were incredible. The service was awesome and I had a wonderful massage and the fresh fruit from the property was great.
The entire experience, I would recommend to anyone. Often, I go on vacation and am ready to go home, but after staying a week at Hale Ho'omana, I wished I could stay longer.

We went to this Hale Ho'omana for our 20th anniversary and it was quite simply heavanly. The energy at this place is quite incredible - my meditations were great! The owners went out of their way to accomodate us. In fact, we misplaced an iPhone charger and they bought us a new one!!!

If you go there, missing the hot-stone lomi-lomi massage would be an unforgivable crime :)

I highly recommend staying at Hale Ho'omana, a choice location to to call home while you see all the beauty of Maui. It's a perfect place for solo travelers, a family trip, or a special adventure with friends. Enjoying a lomilomi massage in the spa is an absolute must-a blissful treat for your mind, body and soul! You will love the peace and serenity of the upcounty and, most of all, the experience of true aloha lovingly shared by the Hale Ho'omnana ohana and the surrounding community. This is, by far, my favorite place to stay on Maui!

We stayed here with my family renting out the whole place even the overflow house. We had a wonderful stay. Nice to have a big kitchen to cook in and all eat together. It worked out perfectly. We loved the cooler temp and Makawao atmosphere. All in all it was perfect and I'll never forget it!
