• The Old Wailuku Inn:
R&R at Maui’s Historic B&B
“Welcome to Maui, Matthew! I’m Tom. I have
to go to the hardware store to pick something
up, but go ahead and make yourself at home.
I’ll be back in a bit.” As a travel writer I’ve
reviewed dozens of B&Bs, and it takes a certain type of person to run one properly — a
people person. Native islanders Tom and
Janice Fairbanks, owners of the Old Wailuku
Inn at Ulupono, are exactly the right type:
funny, generous, trusting and ambassadors of
ho’okipa, the hospitality of complete giving.
That their dedication survived the painstaking restoration of their 1924 “Queen of
Wailuku homes” is a testament to the couple’s
affable nature and enthusiasm for running
one of the top-ranked B&Bs in the U. S. The
decor is a pleasant amalgamation of 1920s
Hawaii and modern convenience (e.g., private
baths in all rooms). It’s everything the mega-resorts of Kaanapali and Wailea aren’t, and
the most affordable second home you could
ask for in Maui. mauiinn.com
