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
I debated the hell out of whether I wanted to whisper it's praises to close friends or shout it from the mountaintops. Selfishly, I don't want to say a damn thing. But I owe it to my fellow TA peeps out there to lay it down. This place is so right for so many reasons it's crazy. Stunning property, rooms are gems, views - sick, tranquility - right on point, Dan - the freaking man, location - brilliant. This place is everything I want in a stay. Small, intimate, charming as hell, has great amenities, allows you to escape the knuckleheads. It's as close to perfect as I would want a place to be. And so you know I don't just dole out compliments, I'm about to hammer the other 3 places we stayed. Dan and Amy, we can't thank you enough for gracing us with this wonderfully memorable home. One for the record books. Thank you.
My now husband and I visited Ho'oilo House for our honeymoon in January 2019. The property itself is beautiful - well maintained, extremely quiet, well equipped with amenities for guests (beach mats/chairs, cutlery, bottomless tea/coffee/water) - but the most impressive aspect for us was the view. It is a gorgeous drive in from wherever the day has taken you and a beautiful start to the day over breakfast. Dan was an amazing host to us - checking in on what our plans were, how our day went and offering great advice whenever we asked. He also had a way of not feeling intrusive, like he was able to read the mood of the room and only approach guests if he thought they were up for a chat. This is especially great when you are on honeymoon! Overall we loved Maui and our stay at Ho'oilo house and hope our travels bring us back this very special place sometime in the future.
This is a very nice and clean spacious room with unique bamboo style outside shower , comfortable ,quiet ,and a lovely view of the ocean with some magnifique sun set and nice palm threes around the house and pool area ,

This place was amazing!
Very clean, quiet , comfortable.
Unique outdoor shower.
The fresh and delicious breakfast is the best as you can sit and enjoy the stunning views of the ocean.
There is a five mile walking path also overlooking the ocean.
Definitely for adults only.
We stayed for 5 nights recently and loved this place. Our room was wonderful and very clean/comfortable. The outdoor showers are a fun touch. We would definitely recommend having a rental car if you stay here. It's about a 10 minute drive into Lahaina, about 30 minutes to/from the airport in Kahului. Stay here if you're traveling to Maui for peace and quiet or if you're looking to avoid the hustle/bustle of the huge resorts. If you're looking for beachfront, though, you'll probably want to look elsewhere.
