... missionaries also introduced a written language for Hawaiian, using only 14 letters of the English alphabet, which is still how Hawaiian is written down today.
Waves of western immigration eventually resulted in the destruction of the monarchy and capture of Hawaii by unofficial US military coup in 1893. The US government officially apologised in 1993, but not before annexing Hawaii and making it a State in the meantime. Valuable military territory ...
After absorbing some history we went to Captain Jacks and absorbed some happy hour Mai Tai's.
Went for a little walk around the Ritz Carlton which is on the Kapalua property. Basic rooms start at $450 US a night. Very glamorous. Loved the pool.

... in. With the intense sun it was definitely time to go in but we decided to take another dip in the ocean - and I'm so happy we did! 2 GIANT sea turtles were swimming around right in the snorkeling area. When I say giant, I mean 3 feet long and 2 feet wide! We grabbed the snorkel gear and were able to be up close and personal, maybe me more so than Kevin. So far I've made friends with a horse and lizard but me and these turtles are besties :) I swam up and ...
... snorkeling, at the marina was the Maui Ocean Center, which housed the aquarium so we went to the aquarium next. Lily took LOTS of pictures there! In the aquariun is a tube you walk through and see hammerhead sharks, all other sharks, manterays, and other sea life swimming above you and on the side of you. Freaky but wonderful! In some of the pictures, you will see a diver cleaning the tank with hammerheads and other sharks swimming right next to him! BRAVE!! Here are the pics, ...
... sharp and cold. Without it, the temperature would have been just fine, if a little brisk. But it seems it’s always windy.
The view at Haleakala is spectacular, overlooking the crater that is multi-colored. It’s geology at work. The kids were not too impressed, but we encouraged them to look out at the vastness of it, the blue sky. We’re above the clouds, perhaps it was the highest we’ve ever been while our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ho'oilo House Lahaina
We recently had a 2 night stay at the lovely Ho'oilo House in Lahaina for our honeymoon. After a hectic week of family entertaining during our Maui wedding, it was a treat to come to this special place for some much needed rest and relaxation. Once you walk through the imported Balinise doors and see the sweeping Pacific views your know you're in a special place. The rooms were nicely fitted with beautiful bathroom fixtures, the softest sheets, great ac, a private lanai and an incredible(!) outdoor shower. Everything was nicelyappointed thoughtout; the rooms were even outfitted with volume controls to bring the soothing music into your room when you wanted it. We also loved the proximity to Lahina, and the ability to be removed for the hectic pace of the town when you wanted to be. After staying at 5 different places on the island, this one was a definite favorite. Thanks to our hosts for making our stay a memorable one! Mahalo!
my husband and i went on our honeymoon beginning in late may. we stayed for 5 nights at hoo'ilo house and it was absolutely wonderful.
My husband and I visited Ho'oilo House for six nights in May. We stayed in Honu the entire time and loved every second of it. The house is beautiful and it is such a pleasure coming back to it every night after a long day exploring the island. It really feels like you are coming home. Dan and Amy were great hosts and were very helpful in terms of recommending things to do during our stay. The room was amazing. The outdoor shower was a vacation in and of itself. I really can't do justice how relaxing it is to take a shower under the stars with the cool island breeze rustling the palm trees overhead. Everything about our stay was perfect and I can not wait to go back. If you are considering staying in a hotel, please consider giving Ho'oilo House a chance instead. You will not be disappointed. It is an easy 10 minute drive to Lahaina, and if you are like us, you will appreciate not feeling like one of a thousand other tourists flocking from tourist trap to tourist trap along one of the many Hotel Rows on the island.
Loved the Kohola Room
I originally won a 3 nights stay at the Ho'oilo House on eBay and I wasn't sure what this place was going to be like from just the pictures, but once we arrived I couldn't believe my eyes. The magnificent elevated location and view was out of this world. We had the Kohola Room which is the room that overlooks the ocean view and faces Lana'i. From the outside shower you have an open view of the Pacific Ocean. Dan & Amy (the house host and hostess) are fantastic people and Dan even took time out to play golf with me. My wife and I can't wait to revisit this paradise in Hawaii.
It is difficult to articulate just how divine our stay at Ho'oilo House (HH) was. But we'll try.
My boyfriend and I just got back from spending six nights (March 19-24) at Ho'oilo House (HH) and we were extremely pleased with everything.
We loved everything about it
We booked this awesome B&B for our belated honeymoon b/c we weren't happy with the hotel reviews of some of the other supposed "luxury" properties on the island. We wanted a secluded, elegant and restful place to relax and unwind and this was it! Breakfast was always on time and perfect- the hosts were nothing but fantastic and the property, rooms, views and spa treatments were just exactly as described. I loved the outdoor shower! This was our first trip to Maui and after having stayed at Ho'oilo House- I don't think we could stay anywhere else on the island. After each day of exploring and visiting other resorts we always talked about how lucky we were to be returning to Ho'oilo House. I just hope as their popularity grows that we'll be able to book it in the future!
Perfection in paradise
This was such a breathtaking place with hosts that will knock your socks off as far as how well they take care of you. My husband and I recently had the perfect anniversary getaway at Ho'oilo House. I took more pictures of the grounds and rooms than I did of anything else on Maui. Extremely romantic, absolutely stunning house with five beautiful rooms to choose from. Every room has a unique and gorgeous bathroom with indoor bathtub and outdoor (but totally private) shower and very relaxing lanai. The views are stunning. Breakfast is healthy and delicious. Worth every penny for what you get. They have recently been recognized by USA Today and Fodors and it is very well deserved praise. We are already planning another visit next year - our new favorite place to stay!
Fantastic Bed and Breakfast
We had the very good fortune to stay here at the end of a 3 week trip to Maui-and its a good thing it was at the end, cuz it would have been a hard act to follow! Everything was just right-a lovely room, great outdoor shower, wonderful view, charming hosts and sweet patio. The breakfast was basic but quite ample and fresh. We will certainly come back-it was expensive but worth it! Great snorkling at mile marker 14, very near by. The only downside is being hostage to traveling into Lahaina for lunch and dinner, a traffic clogged nightmare at certain hours of the day. The day we flew home, USA today had a review of places to stay on Maui, and give Ho'oilo House a great review-which we concurred heartily with!
