“Relaxation and Simplicity...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Spent 5 nights here with my soulmate and it rocked. Our hosts were beyond generous, the breakfast was simple and filling, and the feeling of privacy, silence, and romance were priceless. The suite we stayed in featured a king size bed and a killer outdoor shower with a partial view of the mountains. Full sunset views were 10 seconds away by the pool, and they too were breath-taking. Our only complaints were the occasional bugs in the room (but that was mostly due to the area and some casually opened doors) and the amount of time it took for the shower and bath water to get warm/hot (hint: turn off the water, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again to fix this...repeat if necessary).

Overall, it was an amazing mix of Lahaina countryside, gorgeous views, intimate lodging, respectful hosts, and easy access to of the best stuff Maui has to offer.

Definitely planning to come back ASAP!!

We have just returned from a week of Paradise. Maui was wonderful, relaxing and a big part of our enjoyment was staying at Ho'olio House. It is a lovely place and the outdoor shower is delightful. We stayed in the Nalu suite - the view was stellar.

Best place ever! Beautiful, clean, low-key, quiet, healthy breakfast and friendly staff and guests. Our favorites experiences are the outside showers, having unhurried breakfast and having the heated pool all by ourselves in such a beautiful setting. We will definitely come back here again.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ho'oilo House for 3 nights to finish our 10 days in Maui. Had I known how amazing this place was, I would have planned the trip differently to be able to spend more time here!

Location: excellent! Great in terms of easy access to the airport, south maui (Kihei, wailed, makena) and west maui (lahaina, ka'anapali). Close enough to the main hwy but far enough removed for peace and quiet and unparalleled views (whales seen from out lanai and outdoor shower!)

Accommodations: fantastic! The entire place is very thoughtfully appointed. It was clean, comfortable, and just felt really special.
The bed was very comfortable, with all types of pillow options. Great closet space, bathroom, and awesome outdoor shower.

Food: good! We are early birds and only caught breakfast one day (breakfast served 8-10) but it was very good, with lots of healthy options. Water, Coffees and teas are available 24/7 which was nice.

Extras: Dan really went the extra mile. We brought leftover food from our condo and dan had our pineapple cut up and served to us before we were done unpacking! We borrowed beach chairs for our entire stay, and just felt completely at home, a luxuriously exotic home :).

We recently stayed at the Ho'oilo House for 4 nights as the first part of our Hawaii belated honeymoon, and it was such a wonderful place to start our vacation! Dan and Amy are fantastic - gave us lots of great advice for exploring Maui and make everything so so comfortable and elegant. The breakfast was delicious, especially when enjoyed from the private lanai. And the views and the property! WOW! We ended up getting Foodland poke (highly recommended) and cheese one night just to be able to enjoy dinner and sunset from the inn. Amazing - across the board. Such a great place to stay - we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We were in Nalu - which was really lovely, especially with the ocean-facing lanai. One thing to not...

My wife and I recently stayed here for our vacation to Maui and I think we couldn't have picked a more perfect place.

The rooms and lobby is very beautiful during the day and at night. And because of the location, it was very peaceful.

They do so many little things that make your stay very comfortable like having free beach chairs, parasols, sun hats and books you can borrow if you need them.

The hosts were very friendly and always asked if we needed anything (that's how we found out about the beach chairs)

When we left, we forgot an item in our room and the hosts were nice enough to mail the item back to us.

This place is definitely recommended for anyone who would like a beautiful and peaceful place to stay.

Ho’oilo is absolutely amazing. This was our second stay and both times have been perfect. You really can’t go wrong by staying here. This visit we stayed in Kohola, which is an ocean view room. The room was clean, comfortable and the view was gorgeous. One of our personal favorite touches is the ocean view outdoor shower. Previously we stayed in Akala Manu, which was just as nice. We would honestly stay in either a second time. Outside of your room you get a very nice private lanai and some lovely common areas. The décor is very beautiful and we love the ponds as well. The breakfast is so delicious and well worth planning into your day. Fresh fruit, pastries, juice, coffee, etc., all very good. The overall vibe of Ho’oilo House is relaxing, peaceful and friendly. The hosts are also incredible, adding even more enjoyment to the stay. We would recommend Ho’oilo House to everyone looking for an amazing retreat in paradise.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous, but use the website to get more details. Ocean view rooms are a little s...
