Great price and a great location for what we needed. Nice staff and very private.

  • 4 of 5

These cottages are in the woods in a very private, peaceful setting. The caretakers on site are incredibly nice and accommodating. We had messed up the reservation and they took care of everything. Great price for Maui. Also, close to what we needed which was conducting some work at the National Park and Nature Conservancy properties. We even made it out to Hanna.

Because you are in the woods there was a small problem with what I call 'sugar ants' in the kitchen but they were taken care of. Also, really nice that the caretakes provide breakfast food and re-stocked the fridge and provide fresh towels half-way through out stay. Not expected but very nice for a VRBO property.

Nice, but wouldn't stay again.

  • 3 of 5

On a recent trip to Maui we stayed at the Ho'omana Bed and Breakfast. There were pros and cons to the stay.

Pros: Spa staff was very helpful when my son fell at a nearby park and scraped his knee. They were able to give us band-aids and a spray to help numb the pain. The spa staff also directed us to the location of an amazing park with slides, swings, etc. Halfway through our stay, we were given new towels for the bathroom and kitchen. There was snorkel gear, beach towels and beach chairs in the closet of our cottage to be used for the beach. The spa staff was very friendly when we had questions and concerns regarding the provided breakfast. They offer $10 off spa services for guests staying on property. There was canned beverages with fruit flavors, fruit bars, oatmeal and danishes for breakfast. The furnishings were nice and it was decorated nicely. The water is the shower was always warm and we had no issues with any of the appliances. There was a box fan in the closet to help with the room temperature.

Cons: Ants were a daily problem in the cottage I thought at first it was because the windows were open all day and assumed they had come in through the screens. There was bug spray under the sink and I sprayed them and the areas I thought they were originating from. I stopped leaving the windows open, but the ant problem did not get any better. I believe they are originating from the bathroom as they are all over the sink and the floor leading from the bathroom to the living/sleeping area. There is a laundry room that is complimentary from 3-7pm (according to their paper inside the binder), however, the laundry machines were always in use during that time from the spa doing linens. On the first morning when mold was on the danishes in the fridge, we bought pop tarts and ate those daily for breakfast. The spa staff did tell me that I was welcome to take more danishes from the laundry room, but I choose not to as there was no expiration date on the packages. The tile floor was extremely dirty. I had socks on that were clean and within a short amount of time, the bottoms of them were completely brown. The dirt on the floor was also evident every time I cleaned dead ants off the floor. Since they charge $99 for a cleaning fee, I would have hoped the floors would be clean. There was free wifi, but no pages would ever load even though it showed full strength. I tried this on multiple devices to confirm it wasn't a device issue.

Good Base to Explore Upcountry Maui

  • 5 of 5

We split our Maui trip into​ two parts. This was the upcountry part. Ho'omana B&B was a great place to stay while exploring cowboy country. From here we did Sunrise at Haleakala and the Road to Hana. (Kudos to Temptation Tours for those.) We also explored as far as Maui Winery on our own. The North shore is also handy from here. Makawao has a thriving art scene as well as plenty of places to eat.

Lehua Cottage itself is clean and comfortable. All was as advertised. I would recommend a flashlight for going to and from your car at​ night. It is a short but dark walk.

Over all we are pleased and recommend Ho'omana highly. I would not want this to be my only Maui experience but it was great for this part of it.

Lovely little studio apartment for two!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite places we stayed at while we were in Hawaii! The apartment is clean, quiet, and comfortable and has pretty much everything you need in a 'home away from home' setting. The property is beautiful, private and peaceful. The fresh fruit was amazing! We felt very spoiled to have stayed in such a wonderful studio apartment at such a fair price. I highly recommend the spa services too!!! We treated ourselves to the luxurious couples retreat and OMG how magnificent! We were so relaxed we were practically floating when our little retreat was over. We would come back here in a heartbeat!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil setting away from the traffic and tourists but easy access to everything. The cabin is very well equipped and with a two burner hot plate and gas BBQ you can cook pretty much anything you want. Stocked with fruit, tea, coffee, juices and breakfast bars and Danish pastries. Beach towels, snorkel gear and chairs there to use. Definitely good value
