Possibly the most perfect wedding venue imaginable. Amazing sunsets. Ideal photo opportunities. We had only 40 guests but did not feel dwarfed by the setting. One word of caution- we were told it never rains in May and June on the western coast. It rained for three days prior to our wedding, but the day of the wedding the weather was spectacular.

Absolutely incredible!! It left us and guests absolutely speechless for our wedding reception. Hands down the most perfect place to have your destination wedding on a beautiful tropical island. Everything about Olowalu was unique and special with the plantation house to get ready in, the courtyard, private beach overlooking the pacific ocean with other islands in the distance. Also, the peninsula to take a stroll with your beloved with the most amazing backdrop of the island and its mountains. We also had humpback whales come by and say hello and the list goes on..we will forever be grateful and blessed to have had our wedding here creating such beautiful memories in such a wonderful timeless place. Mahalo nui loa for maintaining everything about Olowalu Plantation House, it'2625s perfect.

STUNNING!

This venue is absolutely stunning. it was perfect for our special day. you don't need a lot of a decorations, because the venue itself it just amazingly beautiful. PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS PLACE JUSTICE. definitely one you have to see in person.

The ocean as our backdrop was perfect, the house, big tree and ocean as our reception area was beautiful - truly brought our reception to life. The tiki torches and uplighting along the ocean at night was magical. it truly was a perfect venue for our special day.

I wish I could write more, but Olowalu just leaves me speechless in all its beauty and aura.

This venue is beyond beautiful. We heard in Nov-March sometimes whales breach during the event, which is astounding (it's a nursing bay). They are very limited now, and the only downside is there is no air conditioning in the little house - so be sure to bring a large fan to cool the rooms down. So worth the money, you can bring in your own caterer and alcohol, which brings the cost way down. Our friends were blown away at how beautiful it was. The perfect place. Here are some photos - https://goo.gl/0n2D69, https://goo.gl/At3gCD, https://goo.gl/FdMhhE, https://goo.gl/5Dt6Tv, https://goo.gl/2rYSzW, https://goo.gl/gRVbnJ

The property is beautiful! We could not have asked for a more perfect location for our wedding! We did have a difficult time getting responses from the owner when we had questions. It would take a few weeks to receive responses to our emails. Also, they are not flexible at all about what time you can enter the house. We were able to set up the property as early as we wanted, but we could not get into the house to get ready until exactly 2 PM. This made getting 12 women ready in time very challenging. We were unsure why it was a big deal, as there was no one else on the property... But just keep that in mind. Also, keep in mind there is NO AIR CONDITIONING in the house! And it is HOT! Rent A/C units from your vendors to put in the rooms while you get ready, or you will not be able to get your dress on... Other than that, it was beautiful, perfect and the most amazing property I have seen!

I've been an international wedding photographer for over 12 years. And now a bride. When Sean and I first came to Olowalu by accident (I thought we had an appointment but it was a text from a wannabe wedding coordinator who didn't identify himself), they were booked up. Thank God Donna called us later that day when a couple cancelled their date! We absolutely cannot imagine getting married anywhere else! The grounds, house, those gorgeous huge trees in the back, it was all just perfect! I've shot weddings at castles in England, 500 year old stone barnes, gorgeous cathedrals, and I can't think of a place prettier than where we were married. Everything was just perfect! All our guests raved about the setting and had an amazing time. Olowalu definitely set the vibe we were wanting for our special day. It just wouldn't have been the same anywhere else.

We booked the Olowalu Plantation House site unseen and have never once regretted it! Thanks to Pinterest, we saw the many amazing shots of the venue and read the raving reviews of it and decided that was enough to convince us to have our destination wedding there. We worked with Lori from Tropical Maui Weddings to plan our 50-guest wedding and had a flawless day! As many people have mentioned- guests say it is the best wedding they’ve been to. We even saw whales breaching during the cocktail hour! So special! The venue worked smoothly with all of our vendors:
Planner- Tropical Maui Weddings
Photography- Kaua Wedding Photography
Bar Service- Aloha Bars Maui
Music- DJ Del of Maui Wedding DJ
Officiant- Pastor Bob McCollor
Videography- Craig from Outer Island Productions
Catering- Café O’Lei
Wedding Cake- Marie at Ghiselani Designer Cakes
Ceremony Music- Jamie Lawrence
Flowers- Lois Hiranaga Floral Design
Hair & Make Up- MeiLi Autumn Beauty

The venue will look as beautiful as everyone else’s pictures for your big day- I promise! With it being a rocky beach, you can ensure more privacy for your ceremony and reception. Stunning views! You will not be disappointed, even if you are having a smaller wedding and are worried about “filling up the space” as some reviewers have commented. We would do our wedding there again in a heartbeat! To be noted: there is no air conditioning in the house. We did hair and make up in our condo instead because of this. No big deal, but putting on the wedding dress was a little sweaty- ha! No one complained and I still felt and looked great all day despite the occasional sweating. It’s Hawaii!

I am from Maui and am familiar with almost every wedding venue that there is here and I can honestly say that Olowalu is hands down the best wedding venue on Maui. It has a stunning location right on the water, with a beautifully manicured yard with lots of beautiful trees and landscaping. The house is amazing as well with its old plantation charm, you can feel the history! We were lucky enough to have the house all day, so we decided to have our hair and makeup done while watching the venue get set up for the evening and I'm so glad I did this! If not, I'm not sure I would have had a chance to take it all in! Thank you Donna for being so easy to work with and helping us have the wedding of our dreams!

We chose to have our wedding at Olowalu Plantation House sight unseen, by using reviews and photos online. A huge thing for us was to have a private property so we didn’t have random onlookers which you often get when you have a beach or hotel wedding. The booking/contract process with the property manager, Donna, was very easy. She held our date until the deposit was received, and we received the damage deposit refund within a month after our wedding date. You are required to have a wedding planner in order to use this property, as well as liability insurance. The House is old and charming. There is no A/C in the house, but we opened the windows and doors, which allowed a nice cooling breeze to go through the house. The guys got the front room to get ready in, while the girls had the rest of the house. I was set up in the Bridal room which had a beautiful view out across the lawn to the ocean. The property is beautiful, clean, has a variety of vegetation/flowers, and is well-maintained. We only had 40 guests but the property didn’t seem too large or empty at all. There are many beautiful locations for photos in the House and around the property. There is a full catering kitchen for your caterers to prepare dinner, 2 bathrooms in the house for the wedding party, bathrooms outside the house for the guests, and plenty of parking available. There is a locking closet to put your valuables in. We had our ceremony under one of the large palm trees overlooking the ocean. It could not have been more picturesque. We had cocktails and dinner set up on the concrete pad which was also used for the dancefloor. The sunset was stunning from Olowalu. We were able to get onto the property the day before to have a quick tour and ceremony rehearsal.. The only thing we were disappointed with was the use of sparklers was disallowed between us booking the venue and our wedding. Our wedding was stunningly beautiful and that was largely due to this beautiful venue.

The Olowalu Plantation House is truly a magical wedding venue. If you have only seen it in photos, it is even more beautiful in person.

The private estate features a cement pad for dancing, coral area, grass, amazing ocean views and a small house that the wedding party is able to get ready in (tip: Rent a portable AC unit, the house does not have AC and gets very warm, especially in the summer!). I briefly worked with Donna before getting my wedding planner and she was very easy to work with. You do need to rent all of your chairs and tables – the venue fee is just for the location and use of the house. But it is worth it!

The ocean was a perfect backdrop to our wedding and our photos. I highly recommend Olowalu Plantation House for anyone that is looking for a private venue in one of the most beautiful spots in Maui.
