Perfect Stay

4.2 on August 01, 2016

After much research on Maui accommodation the selection of Ho'oilo house proved to be exactly what we wanted, quiet, tranquil, welcoming and unassuming. If your looking for a peaceful stay in beautiful surrounds this is the place to stay. Highly recommended and the hosts make you feel most welcome.

Beyond Our Expectations

4.8 on July 30, 2016

Our experience was exquisite. The room was an oasis. It was nicely appointed, the bed was inviting and super comfortable, and the private lanai provided a stunning view of the ocean. We also loved the outdoor shower over looking the Pacific. The most delightful aspect of our stay was how warm and accommodating the staff was, especially Dan. He answered every silly question we had and we actually had some much more meaningful conversations and felt a deep connection with him. It was a pleasure to get to know him and he made us feel completely welcome there. Our room was cleaned each day and it was obvious that it was done wih attention to making us comfortable. The grounds were impeccably kept and beautiful. The breakfast was a great way to start the day. On days when we were starting out before breakfast was served we were provided with items to take with us, along with a cooler to keep them cold. Dan even sliced the fresh papaya and pineapple we bought at a local fruit stand and had it waiting in the room fridge! On our final day on Maui we checked out in the morning but our flight to Kauai was not until the afternoon. We were allowed to leave our bags at the house while we spent a few hours exploring, with plans to retrieve them on our way to the airport. Unfortunately our rental car broke down in a remote location. We were able to get a lift to the local rental office in Lahaina but were out of any extra time to get our bags from Ho'oilo House. I called Dan and he brought our bags to us at the rental office. Without that extra level of help we never would have made our flight - the last one of the day. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Ho'oilo House. We will definitely be returning the next time we visit Maui.

This is our 3rd visit to the Ho'oilo House and we will visit again. Quiet, beautiful location, rooms are large, service is amazing. The location is also close to town and all the services anyone could want. Beaches are plentiful and close as well. I can't imagine a better value in Maui when quality, care, and service are factored into the mix.

Peaceful Paradise

My stay at Ho'oilo House was amazing. The room clean and comfortable and the view incredible! I enjoyed the peaceful and quiet energy, the wonderful morning breakfasts, the helpfulness of the on site owners and the overall magical quality of the land. Sitting on a hillside with lush gardens, I could also see the ocean and the island of Lanai from my own lanai (porch) and beautiful sunsets. Situated close to the town of Lahaina, I enjoyed and appreciated the contrast of going into town where plenty is going on - art - music- lots of people- and returning to the peace and quiet of this beautiful sactuary - just perfect! Thanks Amy and Dan

beautiful stay in November

Great place to get away from any loudness. super quiet almost too quiet at some times, but if you are going to Maui to relax and get away this is the place. great rooms, just don't let the bugs in! No screens for protection so you can't open any windows at night if you want fresh air our you will be eaten alive. our shower spilled into the bathroom floor so we couldn't use it which was a huge bummer. tub was great though! we didn't realize we could get our breakfasted brown bagged if you went out early until the last day! so take advantage if you have an excursion early in the am. pool is not heated so a bit chilly, we were not able to use it and did not see any guest in at any time either. great house, great times, lovely inn keepers!

Anniversary Getaway

Our long weekend stay was amazing. Absolutely gorgeous property and rooms. Quiet and romantic. Our first time on Mauii and Dan and Amy helped us with tips on what restraunts we would enjoy and matched us with beaches that my hubby could snorkel and I could put my toes in the sand. Breakfast was outstanding and we ate local for lunch and dinner. The couples massage on the lanai could not possibly been any more wonderful. I will truely miss the private outdoor shower, under palm trees and sunshine, hearing the birds, feeling the warm breeze....an experience we will not get in Wisconsin! I can honestly say this was our best vacation ever. A+++!

Great stay at awesome House!
