Great Bed & Breakfast

3.8 on February 20, 2018

It's a very nice place. Dan is great. Breakfast was not always ready on time which we weren't happy about because we wanted to leave the B&B in the morning for activities as early as possible. Breakfast starts at 8 am and e.g. the muffins weren't out till 8:15 - 8:30. Other than that, this B&B is great.

Serene with Awesome View

4.6 on February 20, 2018

Amy and Dan were great hosts with many suggestions when asked about dining or activities in the area. Ho'oilo House offers a peaceful oasis with stunning views and an atmosphere of quiet calm. It is decorated in a Thai style and although not my taste, was beautiful. I loved the outdoor shower which could be used in inclement weather (or at least without lightening, I suppose) The breakfast was as stated with warm muffins, homemade bread and a beautiful fresh fruit salad as well as some cereal, yogurt and hard boiled eggs. I would have liked more variety but it certainly did not distract but probably added to the calm nature of this B&B. Our bed was much softer than we typically use which was really the only true negative that I have

Magical B&B

Our stay here was incredible. The rooms, house, landscaping, and view were all absolutely gorgeous. Very quiet and relaxing. We definitely recommend it to anyone looking for that special place away from it all!

Peaceful setting close to Front Street

Beautiful place! The setting is a peaceful Balinese-inspired house with a view of the ocean. Loved the outdoor shower. Felt very private and it was lovely to see the ocean. It’s about 10 minutes to Front Street in downtown Lahaina. We found this to be a great location for activities on that side of Maui. I would definitely recommend this place!

Tranquil,beautiful and relaxing.

Our Second Amazing Stay

Having visited the islands several times, I recommend Ho’oilo House as the finest accommodation in Hawai’i.

Great end to our honeymoon

4.4 on October 22, 2017

We stayed at Ho’olio House at the tail end of an 11-day trip to Hawaii. After 7 days of hiking and other activities in Kauai that kept us busy, we were looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation. Rest and relax we did. The property is beautiful. We stayed in the Nalu room, which had ocean views from our bed, the porch and outdoor shower. We only saw other guests at breakfast and ended up enjoying the ocean views from the pool and nearby chairs all by ourselves. Dan provided some great recommendations for food. Breakfast, although limited, was great every morning. Locally sourced coffee was delicious. It was challenging to find a property like this in Hawaii. But all of the searching definitely paid off. The Pacific Ocean views, intimate design and breakfast included among a slew of other things make this property worth a visit.

beautiful oasis

This is a beautiful B&B with a tranquil quality. The room was comfortable, inviting and provided the privacy we needed to fully relax. Amy and Dan were very responsive to our needs and provided a lovely breakfast in the morning. My only negative comments are regarding the fruit and champagne arranged prior to our arrival. The fruit was not local, had stickers on from the grocery store and champagne was in a bucket of warm water because a/c was not on. I would recommend requesting local fruit and giving and requesting champagne remain refrigerated until your arrival. This was just a small issue during an otherwise lovely B&B stay. Michelle Petz
