Historical Traveler Reviews Huelo Point Flower Farm Paia
Wonderful place away from the hustle and bustle of the city
What a fantastic retreat! Very romantic and secluded. We loved it here. We stayed in the Carriage House. I would recommend it to anyone who likes staying in places out in the country, off of the beaten path away from crowded and busy hotels. The small roads from the highway to get here are a little rough, but they add to the adventure. I think the people who didn't like the place expected it to be like the Four Seasons and didn't do much research before arriving. The pool is not cholorinated with chemicals, but rather is cleaned with an ozinator, thus making it a natural pool. It's nice, like a lagoon. The owners did a wonderful job with this place and I would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in late April 2000. It is the perfect location for privacy - and beautiful views. We prefer to be off the beaten track, and found Huelo Point Flower Farm to be the PERFECT honeymoon retreat. The guest house is wonderful with its cathedral ceiling and king-sized loft bed that is literally hovering above the lower floor. Waking up in the morning, you are greated with views of the ocean as you lay in bed, looking out the ceiling-level windows. Our favorite part of the stay was the "insiders guide" to local natural attractions. We hiked the bamboo forest on three different days, attempting to see all of the beautiful waterfalls (never quite getting up that final "rope" though)!! We found that we stayed on the rainforest side of the island for almost our entire stay. We visited Lahaina for the typical tourist-type things for one day, but quickly found that the quiet beauty was what we really came for. And - We will definitely be back!!!
We stayed at the guest house. We were enticed by the beautiful photos and listed ammenities. We were very disappointed by what we found.
On our first day we were greated by one of the owners who showed up dirty and sweaty from working on the property.
It was very hot and humid and to our dismay, we found out that we would not have air conditioning.
The first time we used the towels, they smelled very putrid as if someone wiped their perspiration on them.
The pool was not as we had envisioned. It was not your typical inground chlorinated lap pool. No wonder there were no photos of it in the promotions. It looked like nothing more than a hole in the ground.
You won't be alone when sleeping here either. The place is overrun with lizzards.
This place is out in the "Boonies" on a very bad gravel road which scraped the bottom of our rental car on several occasions.
With nothing to do for miles, no entertainment, no restuarants, why would anyone want to stay in a hot house full of lizzards? Not us. We strongly advise against this place. You can stay at much nicer places for a fraction of the price.
Paradise on Earth
One of the most beautiful B & Bs and settings I can imagine. Ideal and idyllic location, amidst exotic flowers, overlooking the ocean. There's no place I'd rather stay on Maui.
Paradise (I want to go back NOW)
How could someone not like this place??? If you think the pictures are beautiful, you should see the place in person. Imagine sitting in your private hotub on the edge of a 300' cliff, looking out into the blue Pacific. The host Paul, is extremely accomodating, the entire experience wonderful. You are staying in the same surroundings you see on the road to Hana, but you are only 20 minutes away from great restuarants in Paia, including Mama's Fish House. (mmmm) If you enjoy something private, secluded, unique, give Huelo Point Flower Farm a try, you won't be dissapointed.
Only a blueblood would call this a dump
I stayed in the guest house on my honeymoon, and would gladly go back as fast as I can afford to! It may not be the Ritz or the Waldorf Astoria, but if you want beautiful nature and a friendly staff that makes themselves inconspicuous, this is the place. If you want maid service daily and send-out laundry and dry cleaning, go ahead and make the Hyatt Grand Wailea richer.
The pictures don't do it justice. Very friendly. Amazing views. A great escape from the tourist trap resort world. By far it was the best place we have stayed, anywhere! Be sure and bring bug spray though.
We've stayed at the Farm on both our island trips. Now we're planning our third visit. If you enjoy privacy and heavenly vistas, if the only sounds you want to hear are crashing surf and singing birds, this is the place you'll want to stay. If you are looking for the tacky tourist experience, bright lights and "cheesy" luaus head for the other side of the island. This place is strictly for those who seek nature to nurture the heart and soul. It will heal you with every breath and will stay with you a lifetime.
Escape from the real world
We just returned from a week's stay at HPFF. None of the cliches come close to describing this wonderful hidden treasure. The views are incredible (saw whales from our house almost every day) and each house is very private (perfect for a romantic getaway). Close enough to all the attractions (30 min. drive) to be convenient, but still very remote. We'll be back!
Beware of Huelo Point Flower Farm
This place is a dump! The owners could care less if you stayed there or not. Stay anywhere but here.

... way down to the sea, and yes, the views are impressive. There is a small shelter with plastic floor-to-ceiling windows which have views over the "crater", which is actually an erosion valley which has left sharp peaks and cliffs where there was just a rounded dome some 3000 ft higher when volcanic activity ceased. In the valley are a number of highly coloured cinder cones, but there is no sign of a real crater. From here we can look down into the breach in the north side ...

It is appropriate to develop a garden and balcony railings. Timber is under steady monitoring dried out in the clothes dryer. It is processed and prepared for immediate install. Yet you could furthermore oil them with some widely known best fence ...
... mall for fish taco batch one! These are Baja fish tacos, with salad, black beans, grilled fish chunks, and anything from the salsa bar. I go for the hottest salsa - avocado based with jalapeños. Not that hot really but very tasty. Plus a sweetcorn and carrot salsa for crunch, coriander (cilantro) and jalapeños. We only have one taco but it's pretty awesome. We decide ...

We have a couple of fruity smoothie cocktails - guava flavoured (me) and mango flavoured (Mark). We are determined to have dessert so we squeeze in a lilikoi (passion fruit) creme brûlée and a vanilla cream with fresh strawberries. Both incredible too. We feel thoroughly ...
... using the same space. We immediately checked in. They weighed our luggage and then had us step on the scale with what we were carrying on-board. This seemed unfair to us! But we’re sure they just needed to balance the load.
The kids were very patient waiting for our flight, and we did have 90 minutes to wait, as expected. In reality we could have shown up 15 minutes early and it would have been plenty of time. But it was fun ...
