Perched in the West Maui Mountains about five miles outside lovely Lahaina, this six-suite B&B feels like a private Balinese house. A central living room with serene nooks opens onto a small pool surrounded by koi ponds, trickling water pots and impeccably manicured flower gardens. Individually decorated, some suites have four-poster beds, while others are mod platform affairs, but all have both Balinese and Hawaiian touches, private lanais, outdoor showers and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs made from shell stone. After a day at the beach or golf course, keep the relaxation rolling with an in-room spa treatment or soak in the sea views from the meditation gazebo. Breakfast is as local as it gets, with most of the fruits and vegetables grown in the hotel’s organic gardens and orchards. Co-owners Dan and Amy are often on-site to dish out advice on getting the most out of Maui.
In the Area
Head a mile down from the hotel to catch the beginner-friendly breaks at Launiupoko Beach Park. Rent a board and book a lesson through Rivers to the Sea. Local favorite Leoda’s Pie Shop is a few miles to the left (order the coconut cream). Head to Lahaina for nouveau bistro fare at Lahaina Grill or super-rich ramen and steamed pork buns at Star Noodle. Plan well in advance to score tee times at any of Maui’s 17 golf courses.
How to Get There
We loved to stay at Ho'oilo house, it is such a special place. Dan and Amy are great hosts, their muffins for breakfast a delight. We recommend the place to anybody that loves nature and a great view plus this special touch.
Can't say enough about how much my wife and I enjoyed Ho'oilo House. We were there for 10 days and Dan and Amy helped make our 30th anniversary special. The location is outstanding. Loved seeing the mountains one way and the ocean the other. The rooms are first rate, the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfasts each morning were just right. I was so glad to be away from the resort crowds. This place is little taste of heaven. Beautiful views no matter which way you look. Dan gave us great advice (we were first timers in Hawaii) on beach's, places to eat, getting around etc....Would love to go back right now!
This was the perfect way to spend an amazing, romantic 25th wedding anniversary vacation The Honu room with the outdoor shower is incredible! The rooms are gorgeous, and the breakfast is amazing. The views are right out of a postcard..it's basically paradise. And Dan and Amy are wonderful hosts. I've stayed in many luxurious places, but this is one of the best! I'm so glad we chose to stay here instead of one of the resorts in town. Thank you Amy and Dan for such beautiful memories.
