  • Guest Reviews

    Ho'oilo House ocean view

    Our greatest success has been return guests and those staying with us based on the referral of their family, friends, or in one case--strangers on a snorkel cruise! We value our guests and strive to give them a reason to sing our praises each time they visit.

    We truly appreciate when our guests take the time to post a review of their stay on the many sites available. Please take a moment to read and/or post a review.

    Early on we were privileged to be a part of several Celebrity event gift bags and we thank Julie Kenney of Jewels & Pinstripes for the amazing exposure these events provided. Since that time we have had the great fortune of being included in esteemed publications such as Fodor's, Frommer's, Plus 1 Living (Japan) and Living (Dutch) magazines.

    All of this publicity has brought us increased recognition around the world and more specifically in the world of B&Bs. We thank our guests for staying with us, the publishers of these (and other) great publications for including us, and the indispensible Internet for allowing us to reach new guests every day.

    "Stayed here for 4 nights as we island hopped on our honeymoon. Complete privacy and barely saw the other guests. One minute to the beach and 10 minutes to the action of Front Street, Great outdoor showers. Coming back to here when we return to Maui is a no brainer!!"

    -Mark. Hamilton, NJ

    "My wife and I spent half of our honeymoon here, and the second half at Grand Wailea in the south of Maui. We wished we had spent the entire time at Ho'oilo House! The Grand Wailea was nice and offered everything we expected, but it was of no comparison to the relaxed and beautiful setting provided at this gorgeous B&B. Dan and Amy were as available as needed and more than accommodating to any request. It was extremely nice to have the freedom and convenience of being steps away from your own vehicle to get out and explore. The grounds are well-kept and the rooms are spotless. We were apprehensive about the size of the room from the photos (Nalu) but I could not have been happier with the decision. The private balcony provided great views even from the bed. Everything that can be written about this place doesn't do it justice. Just go."
