April 2014 - C618 - Wow! Everything is super great at your your place. The housekeepers were so nice letting us bring some things in while Geri and I did some shopping and errands.   Your artwork is a nice personal touch and thank you for welcome basket!!

March 2014 - Island Surf #408 - Just wanted to drop you a note and say we had a great time at Island Surf 408 in March. The unit met our expectations totally.The view was simply great.  We did leave a boogie board behind for other tenants to use. I hope the cleaning staff found the unit to be in decent shape when we left. We are considering another vaction in Maui in March of 2015, do you have any units avalble? We are still flexible on our dates hoever arriving sometime in the first week of March would be best.
We expect our stay to be 16days. Does not have to be 408 but would like something with a decent view of the ocean.   If you have something that could fit, please let us know. Your help is appreciated. Thanks Bob and Brenda

March 2014 - C618 - Good Morning. First day in beautiful Maui. Thank you for having the Condo ready for us. We were a few minutes early, prepared to wait a bit, but exhausted. The Condo is lovely. Sparkling clean. Best night's sleep in a very long time. Comfortable bed…Thank you also for the basket. We had papaya this morning for Breakfast, and the pineapple is marked
for dinner. So very thoughtful of you. We love all your art work in here. Such a nice touch. Off to the beach. Thanks, Joyce/Don

January 2014 – C619 - Kathy, We want to thank you for the wonderful surprise - the "treat" basket! It was great to have an assortment of munchies on hand. We have managed to do a great deal of touring so far. We did the road to Hana yesterday morning. Then we took in Pi'ia and Makawao. The day before we planned to go up the west coast - but got only as far as Lahaina and ended up staying there the entire day. Anyway, we are now waiting for the sun to take in some of the beaches. The condo is in a great location - not only on the island but also in Kihei itself. Thanks again for the basket! P.S. I really smiled when I opened the fridge and saw a flower in there. Nice touch. Trish and Doug

January 2014 – Unit C313 - Hi Kathy we are just finishing up before we leave. Back to our cold. The condo and everything about it was great. It was nice to see it so stocked with spices as well as the beach items and towels. So nice to not have to go out and worry about those things. We did a lot of your recommendations and we were so pleased with each restaurant, each snorkel and beach place, the luau and the little towns we visited. Mahalo from the bottom of our hearts. We are planning to be back in three years time and hope to rent from you again. Thanks to the lovely couple who own this little gem and for sharing it. So homey and peaceful to come back to every night. Aloha and warmest wishes. Annette

January 2014 – C619 - Good morning Kathy! Just wanted to check in. We returned home from the island late Saturday nite. The whole trip went so well, and everything flowed so perfectly! The condo was great, and we took great advantage of the location to do several things, as well as just simply lay low and relax as well! Thank you, and of course the same to Marian! Warm regards, Steve and Daniele.

January 2014 - C617 - Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for the lovely basket of goodies. We really enjoyed them. The condo is just what we wanted. Just to let you know that there was a notice when we arrived that the washing machine was broken. John came over to fix it but it needs a part. We can manage to wash our personal stuff by hand, but will not be able to wash the bedding and towels when we leave. Our friends in Island Surf also are pleased with the condo you found them. All we need now is sunshine. We purchased a boogie board but have not been able to use it yet. We will leave it at the condo for others to enjoy. Thank you once again. Kathy

December 2013 - D204 - Hello Kathy, we've been back from Maui for over a week now and I had meant to email you before this to tell you how pleased we were with unit D204 at Kihei Akahi. The unit had everything we needed for a wonderful 2 week vacation; it is close to 3 fabulous beaches, many food outlets are nearby and the sun shone every day!! Linda and I would also like to thank you for the welcome basket of goodies and the beautiful card that were in the unit when we arrived. What a nice welcoming touch!! Please pass on to the owners that when a unit is maintained as well as D204, guests cannot but want to treat it as their own. I know we did. Once again, thank you, Kathy. Bill and Linda.

November 2013 – D204 - Aloha Kathy, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. It has been very busy since we got back from Maui. Yes, Victor forgot his grey power bar. Please donate it or leave it at the condo D204 as an extra. As soon as we open the front door to the condo we knew we had chosen the right place to stay for our vacation. The condo was very clean and everything we could have asked for. This is a great location with beautiful sunset each night. Thank you for the amazing gift basket. We were starving after the long flight and the bananas tied us over until we got to the supermarket. We will definitely recommend this condo to our family and friends. Thank you Kathy and we appreciate all your help in making our vacation a memorable one. Mahalo, Annemarie & (Victor)

Oct 2013 – Unit C619 - Flip Key Review - "Great rental - would go there again." Loved the condo and the location. Kihei has beautiful weather and the condo was right across the street from Kamaole Beach where there is good snorkeling. All the amenities needed were there to make our stay easy and pleasurable. - G. Anderson

Sept 2013 - Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy, Mahalo for letting us stay in your wonderful condo! We had a fantastic trip with lots of snorkeling an intro to scuba diving and road trips all over the island. Our favorite snorkel spot is in the Ahihi Preserve Park in the lot (past the crowded cove right next to the road) follow the short trail to the end of the rocky beach. We had a fantastic dinner at Monkey Pod Kitchen – highly recommended. Can’t wait to come back! Thank you for the gift basket that was very sweet. - Amy and Amaury

August 2013 - Unit C313 - Hi Kathy, We want to send this to you before we forget and while the memories of Maui are still fresh in our minds. Anyways, we noticed a "Raves" section on your website but didn't see an option to write a Rave so we would like to contribute, if you don't mind. Here is our Rave: "Dear Derick and Jean, thank you for renting your beautiful condo to us for our 1 year anniversary. We enjoyed the many amenities it provided, including the newly added air conditioner and all the beach accessories. From the towels, to the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler...everything that was included really helped us enjoy our first visit to Maui, whether we were laying out in the sun or driving to any of the major attractions. The location of the condo could not have been any more ideal as it was centrally located between everything that we had on our itinerary. It was perfectly situated from Ka'anapali, Lahaina, Haleakala, Makena Beach and the vigorous, yet very stunning, Road to Hana. We will definitely re-rent this condo for future visits to Maui and tell anyone we know who is planning a visit to Maui of your unit. To Kathy, thank you for all the communication you provided us. It was great to know that we could touch base with you for any questions/concerns we had and that we could expect a response soon after. We really appreciate how professional you were and how reserving this condo was easy and pleasurable. Other people we inquired with about other rentals were either not very informative, not very personable or it would take them quite some time to reply. However, you gave us all the information we needed, your emails were very charming & made us very excited for our visit and, like I have already stated, you were always prompt. Mahalo Nui Loa, Derick, Jean, Kathy and Maui Vision for all your hospitality and accommodations. We look forward to contacting you again in the (hopefully near) future! With Warm Regards, Cindy & Jason"

Aug 2013 - “D204 - An Excellent Choice” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 NEW The condo was everything that was described and more. It was fully equipped from everything one would need in a kitchen to the guide books, beach chairs, buggy boards, beach bag and cooler. It was very clean and it is obvious the owners take steps to keep it in great shape. The wifi worked perfectly and fast and having free long distance to Canada and the US was a bonus allowing us to keep in touch with our family. We made good use of the full size, in suite, washer and dryer. The location was excellent permitting us to walk to many good beaches and eating places, and other things were just a short drive away. The booking process was very easy and efficient and the information "Kathy" gave us about what to do and where to eat in Maui was very helpful. We did a lot of looking on Trip Advisor and other sites when looking for a condo and are very glad we found this one. The price was very reasonable for what we got and I would highly recommend it and would certainly stay here again, no question!

May 2013 - Unit C618 - Dear Kathy, I just wanted to say thank you for allowing my wife and I to rent your condo for our wedding and honeymoon. We really enjoyed the condo, the resort and its location on Maui. Good luck to your son enlisting in the Air Force and please thank him for his decision to serve our great nation. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did. Best wishes,Erik and Nicole S.

May 2013 - Unit C618 - Kathy, Had another amazing vacation in Maui thanks to you. The room and accommodations were awesome. Especially loved your art work. I am now inspired to do more painting when we return home. I can only hope to be half as talented as you. Val and I are looking forward to our next trip to Maui and it won't be long. Thanks again for everything. Mel and Val B.

“10 night stay at Kihei Akahi”
Reviewed February 24, 2013
1

person found this review helpful
We stayed in unit D204 and couldn't have been happier with the condo. We really enjoyed having a full kitchen and in-room laundry. We could see the ocean from our lanai and even enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from it. There are two pools on the complex however we only used the one in front of our building, it would have been nice however if the pool had been heated as it was freezing all the time. One thing we did notice was that there was no else our age there (late 20's) in fact we did feel a little out of place at the pools so it would have been nice to see other couples closer to our age. The grounds and buildings were always extremely clean and well maintained. The complex was in the best possible location, it's right across from one of the best rated beaches in Kihei Kam Beach 2, and you can walk in minutes to tons of great restaurants, bars, and shops. We would definitely stay in this complex again!!

“Kihei Akahi C313 - Couldn't have been happier with this 2 person condo”
Reviewed March 6, 2013
We stayed from Feb 8th until Feb 25th , 2013 in this wonderful unit. Renovations to the condo are recent and well maintained. We never had to run the air conditioning as opening the door to the lanai allowed for the cooler tradewinds to come through. The quiet time from 10pm to 8am (?) was never an issue as we were always too tired from sun and touring Maui for the day. The island birds will however wake you up every morning at first light - unless you are a sound sleeper. We didnt see alot of younger children in this complex but there are 2 pool areas as well as 2 bbq areas for use. It's also only a 2 min walk to Kam Beach II. Fred's Mexican restaurant and Moose McGillacuddy's are also right there for those days when you don't feel like cooking. Spending time in Maui was that much better coming back to this gem of a condo unit every day. Thanks Kathy at Mauivision!!

Jan 2013 – Unit C618 - Hi, Kathy, I've been meaning to write since we got back....but you know how it goes, playing catch-up! We both want to tell you how much we enjoyed your Kihei condo. Of course, I had the advantage of having seen the online photos ahead of time and described it to June, but she was absolutely thrilled with the accommodations. I had a hard time prying her loose from the lanai which she enjoyed so much. The interior was lovely and so well-appointed, just as described. The sleeper sofa was comfortable for me & she loved having the bedroom. The information you provided ahead of time about local eateries, beaches, etc. was also so very helpful. We stayed close to home except for our Hana Road day and a few short excursions. The concierge service that arranged the Valley Isles tour was great, and the trip itself a delight. We had companionable minibus-mates and both got to enjoy the lovely views along the way. So glad I didn't drive it! I only cooked one meal - I had to have fresh ono & let June know how delicious it was. The kitchen was so nice and with all the amenities I needed (except the ingredients, of course!) The only thing we needed that wasn't in the condo was a nightlight by the sink. Since we're both at the age where a few trips to the loo in the night are the norm, we both decided a little light would help. Found a bargain one our first day out & left it in the room for others who might appreciate it. Absolutely everything else we could have desired was already there. Thanks again for all your pre-trip communications and for maintaining such a beautiful property. Your paintings are gorgeous! Tobie and June

November/December 2012 - Unit C618 - Kathy, Aloha! Wow, what a fabulous 'new' kitchen!! We love it. New stove, micro, dishwasher, sink, taps...And a new vanity in the bathroom with great lighting! Once again, we have had a wonderful time in our home away from home!! We thank you! Golfing this trip has been the most reasonable - Pukalani was $66 for 2 and Elle Aire was $65 for 2. We again rented bikes with all gear in Haiku. Drove to top of Haleakala rode down to Kula. Had pizza and beer then went back up and repeated and then rode to Haiku about 30 miles in all! Out of this world! Going through lavender fields etc. Vegetation very lush! Great Aloha Friday gatherings at lower pool. Wonderful walks, swimming, and snorkeling. Restaurants we recommend Five Palms, Cafe au lea, Cafe on the Greens just a few favorites! Once again a wonderful time was had at our home away from home! Merry Christmas! See you in February. Mahalo Kathy - Dianne and Harley, Vancouver.

Nov 2012 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, Paul and I really enjoyed our stay in Kihei, of course the weather was perfect and the location of the condo was great! We had a minor glitch finding the condo only because we didn’t realize where the highway changed; however once we got our bearings we were good to go for the time we were on the Island. We had a nice time between the beaches and site seeing. Thank you for the basket that was a nice treat after a day of travelling. We only had to call for one issue which was a cracked toilet seat; John responded and replaced it while we were out one afternoon. What a great way to wake up with all of the birds singing in the morning, it is a good way to get up and enjoy the beautiful morning and get the day started. The condo was comfortable and the facility very nice and of course a great location. I would recommend this to friends and would certainly stay again. Thank you for your help with getting everything set up and making our stay easy. Mahalo! Susan

November 2012 - Unit C617. The location is great, directly across the beach from Kam II, 5 minute drive to Wailea, and no more than 15 minutes from all of the Wailea and Makena beaches. The condo is very nice and stocked with everything one needs to cook and stay for a week or more in Kihei. Very nice view from the lanai of the ocean. Great value for the nightly rate. Our only dislike was the futon couch. While is fits the decor nicely, it's not at all comfortable and I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to sleep on. I would love to see it replaced with a comfy sleeper couch or recliner couch.

October/November 2012 - Unit C618 - Thank you again for the use of your beautiful condo! Your renovations are wonderful and as always we love to be surrounded by your artwork!

Lots of snorkeling, some hiking, horseback riding, polo watching and more. The weather has been beyond fantastic. Very tough to have to go home. Thanks so much also for the gift basket!

August 2012 - Unit D402 - Marian and Kathy, Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with our recent stay at the Kihei Akahi unit D402. Kathy provided very responsive and professional support during the booking process. The unit itself is clean and very nicely set. Everything that one might want to have on a vacation in Maui was available in the unit and I was so impressed by the well equipped kitchen. The location is the best! The beach and a full range of restaurants are all within short walk or drive from the resort. The office staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back! All the Best, Adva and family

June 2012- Unit D204 - Just got home yesterday from this beautiful home away from home. Looking at the pictures makes me wish I was back. The condo was incredible - the only place that I have ever stayed where I felt that everything was clean and ready for my use. I felt like it was my home while I was there-and I am usually funny about sitting on someone else's couch or drinking from the glasses that are there-no worries in this unit. Thank you Kathy for making the reservation process so easy and thank you to the Freelands for letting us stay in your piece of paradise. My first experience with VRBO - and it was more than expected. I will definietly recommend this unit as well as Kathy's to others. Thanks again. - Val and Mike

March 2012 - Island Surf #408 - Aloha back at you Chuck, We went out with Rascal Sports Fishing & both caught Mahi Mahi's, so they cut some up for us & we BBQ'd it at the condo. (They just gave us enough for a GOOD feeding of it.) As for the condo, no complaints what so ever. The TV in the bedroom didn't work, but we got up so early in the morning to do things. That we both couldn't of stayed up to watch it any way. We would highly recommend your condo to all our friends; it was clean, quiet, great view, so close to everything, affordable. And the welcome basket was a nice touch too. There is nothing I would change about the condo & I can't think of anything to improve on. It's a wonderful home away from home!! We were so happy that you allowed us to have a later check out time. That we were happy to do all the laundry & change the bed. Thanks again so much, you'll be hearing from us on our next visit.

We sure hope to visit Maui again and would not hesitate to contact you. Thanks so much, Bob

March 2012 - Unit D204 - Just wanted to say the place looks great and can't wait to see the island. Oh, and thanks for the gift basket. Much appreciated. Just wanted to thank you again for setting us up with such a wonderful place, and to the Freelands who's condo turned out beautiful. As a tradesman myself I noticed the high quality of workmanship done on their place and it's fantastic. We had a wonderful time there, kids just loved it . But it's back to reality now and we look forward to returning in the near future. Please pass this on to the Freelands for us. Until next time, Mahalo and Aloha Heather, Jason and Family.

February 2012 – Unit C618 - Kathy, We just got back from your lovely condo yesterday. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the gift basket--it was very thoughtful and I LOVE pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing your home. We hadn't been to Maui before but we are in love with it. We did so many fun things (well, hiking and going to the beach, but that's what we like) while we were there. Your condo was so centrally located and well-equipped... as soon as we thought "I wonder if there is a...?" we would look and there it would be. Also, the convenience of such a delightful beach right across the street was just wonderful.   Before the end of our second day we were planning our next trip. But as I looked through your guest book a fear stole over me... you typically have tenants for the whole month of February! And indeed, I've just checked your calendar on Mauivision and the whole month of February 2013 is booked! :(  However, I see that your company also manages C617 next door. Is it available?  Regards, Kelly

January 2012 - Unit C313 - Good Morning Derick & Jean,
Nathan and I had a wonderful vacation in Maui. Your place was very nice and clean. We found everything we need. Everything was just perfect. Thank you so much for providing nice place. It really felt like home.  My 5 months old baby boy loved your place too. I would love to visit Maui and stay in your place again. It was great to see sunshine everyday.  Thank you!   Happy New Year!!  Nathan, Jean, Baby Thomas from Seattle.

January 2012 - Unit C312 – Just a quick note to let you know that all went well, the condo was awesome - no doubt - the BEST we’ve stayed in while on Maui, bar none. You’ve got yourselves a fantastic home away from home; we hope to book again next year.  Stephen & Carley

November 2012 - Unit C312 – We just returned from viewing C312 and OMG - it is gorgeous!!!! The cleaning ladies were there and we had a great chat with them. And it looked like they were doing a very thorough job. They said it is one of the nicest units and we can certainly see why. The renos you have done are wonderful - love the big granite counter, large new kitchen, tile work, furnishings that are very comfortable, beautiful bathroom, the bed looks so comfy and just everything you have done is very tasteful and lovingly thought of.

January 2012 -Unit C313 - Mahalo Kathy for the lovely basket of goodies.  Very thoughtful and over the top! WE are enjoying the unit C313 of Derick & Jean Yu's!  Nicely appointed unit with everything! They also sent a beautiful boquet of tropical flowers! It is a nice aloha Maui style that is why we love this place.  Thanks again for accommodating us on our vacation.  We will return and have noticed you have a few more in Bldg D coming available D204 D402 so will keep them in consideration as well. WE were in Bldg D for most of  our vacation but it is really nice here in Bldg C as well.  Different views but also very nicely appointed and very clean and lovely.  Take Care  Happy New Year as well.  Aloha.  Mahalo again for the lovely basket.  Sincerely Dave & Brenda D.

December 2011 - Unit C313 - Hi Kathy, Thanks for letting the cleaning crew give us permission to drop our bags off. That was very helpful and they were such nice people. The flowers that were waiting for us are beautiful. What a nice gesture. The unit is beautiful and so comfortable, we really feel at home here. We will definitely be coming back!  We don't need an extended checkout time as we have to be at the airport by about 10 a.m. Once again thanks for thinking of that.  Thanks for the great hospitality, Ron and Heather

November 2012 - Unit C312 - All your wall colors are beautiful as is the art work and the special touches here and there. Well done - you both must be thrilled!   We are very excited to be lucky enough to stay there in March and know we will love it. In all the years we have been coming here I can't believe we haven't considered the Akahi - we sure think differently now. - Cindy

October 2011 – Unit D402 - Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for a wonderful stay again in Maui in Kihei Akahi D402. (October 29 - November 10).  We had a really nice time and got to see some spinner dolphins!  Thank you for the fruit basket and the wonderful flowers that greeted us in the condo.  We had a great flight there and back and really did not want to leave.  We have to figure out to stay for 4 weeks!!  That should do it!!  Please forward our thanks to the Harris's.  Also, we thanked Janice 'We Mop It" cleaners (I think that is what they are called) as some lights did not have bulbs and she came within 15 minutes to drop some off.  Very good service. We hope you found the condo in excellent condition as we did the laundry, dishes, garbage, recycle before we left. My Mom and I treat it like home.  Again, thank you for the stay; I am already missing the beautiful aromas of the flowers, the sound of the ocean and the wake-up call of the birds!!  Kindest regards, Janice M. and Nancy J.

October 2011 - Unit C616 - Aloha from Maui, unit C616 to be exact. The weather has been stellar and I have already taken 2 yoga classes from Dani @ the Mana Kai. The bed in condo C616 is stellar. I've been sleeping like a baby. - Alison

Oct 2011 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, I am so sorry for getting back to you late, it's been crazy over here. My husband and I just and are in the works of unpacking while starting our new jobs. We wish we were still in Maui! Anyways, mahalo for your hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay in C619, it's a beautiful place. You were very right, it was so nice to have two bathrooms! Once we got back from snorkeling each day there was no rock, paper, scissors for who gets the shower first! :) We also really appreciated your 'Welcome to Maui' newsletter. We loved the Secret Beach (see attached photos), Cafe Des Amis (delicious!), and the Ahihi-Kinau Preserve (swimming in a fish bowl!). We loved how thorough it was; when we took extra long beach breaks we were able to just refer to it (as far as Ka'anapali!) and find a good place for a late dinner. It really was a great and valuable resource, again, thank you. I'm sure you will appreciate this as you embrace social marketing such as YouTube, but I love to write reviews. I have a Yelp account and am trying to start a tripadvisor acct, too. There are a few mentions of a "Kathy" on tripadvisor for Kihei Akahi, with no contact info. I would also like to add my recommendation for those looking for a place to stay in Kihei. May I direct my review to an email address or website for you? If that's alright, please let me know what contact information you would like left in my review. I am going to try to get those reviews out in the next week! :) Mahalo, Pia

Oct 2011 - Unit C617 - Kathy, We have settled in and wanted to say thank you for the lovely basket and card. Chip was surprised that you knew it was his 28th anniversary celebration. Thank you for remembering. Please send our thanks to the Harris's for the beautiful flowers as well. This place is so lovely! We are very happy with it. Laurie and Chip

Sept 2011 - Unit C618 – Aloha Kathy, Thank you.  We totally enjoyed the condo!  Our first trip to Hawaii and we were wowed!  We can’t wait to come back!!  Your list of suggestions was most helpful.  Snorkeling and the beaches were awesome and so much more Sansei’s food was incredible and the coconut martinis at PuPu’s restaurant were terrific.  Mahalo again Alanna

August 2011 - Unit C312 - I couldn't have been happier to be the first guests in this incredible property! I have been going to Maui twice a year on average for the last 5 years, and this is the best, most comfortable property I have ever stayed at in all my stays, and what better than in central Kihei! My girlfriend and I went for a nice getaway, but this property would work just as well for up to 4 people with the queen sized pull out couch! The photos don't do the actual property justice - the kitchen is very spacious and the granite counters very spacious. The bathroom and 2-person tiled shower is fantastic, and the lanai and patio furniture makes the best place to enjoy some Kona coffee and coconut pancakes while overlooking the ocean first thing in the morning! The TV and IPOD dock radio are great to listen to your favorite music, or catch up on a favourite show with a nice glass of wine at night as you unwind in preparation for the next days events. The beach chairs and towels, cooler and boogie board were great additions and were very handy when you make the short walk across the street to the beach! Kathy, their property manager, is incredible and readily available for anything that you may need from her. Neal and Joe and INCREDIBLE owners and also always available! I have nothing but good things to say about them and their property and I highly recommend it! I am referring all my friends and family here and I myself will certainly be a return guest! A beautiful location, a beautiful property, and incredible owners - I definitely recommend it! - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

June 2011 - Unit C618 - My husband, daughter and I had an absolutely awesome time in Kathy’s condo. We were there about the same time four years ago and, likewise, had an awesome time. We stayed at the condo both times and our experience was absolutely wonderful. Everything was fully stocked and we never really had to go out to buy anything because everything was already there, including coffee. The beach was 5 minutes away and we really took advantage of it. One thing that Kathy did was to provide a printout of advice as well as places to visit and dine out. Very helpful. Would I go back? Absolutely!!! - Genia J.

June 2011 – Unit C618 – Aloha Kathy, Mahalo oo much for the use of your beautiful condo.  We loved our stay here.  Thank you for the gift basket.  We arrived late and hungry so it was a real treat and greatly appreciated!  Your art work is beautiful.  You are so gifted and talented.  Thank goodness for cameras.  That is as much art as we are capable of!  Thanks too for all the helpful info you provided us with – food, beaches, activities, etc. Bev Gannon’s restaurants are superb and bonus, we visited during Wailea Restaurant walk!  Three weeks here went by much too fast.  We will have to come back!  Mahalo again Paul and Beverly P Calgary, Canada

May 2011 - Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy, Well, we have been back home in Canada for just alittle over a week now from our wonderful time in Maui.  We just wanted to say thank you very much for the use of your beautiful condo.  We really enjoyed our stay and were not at all eager to return home!  Your condo perfectly suited our needs and your artwork is beautiful -- you are so talented!  We do hope that your housekeepers found everything to be in order at your unit.  Please let us know if such was not the case.

Mahalo again  -  Paul and Beverly

May 2011 - Unit C619 - We recently stayed in Unit C619 for ten days at the end of May and I had to write you a customer satisfaction letter because our vacation was even better than we imagined!  It was my first trip to Maui, and being a single mother of two teenagers, it can be pretty scary to book a trip on the VRBO. But you were terrific because you called me back , instead of emailing me and hearing your voice really reassured me. Then when you sent detailed pictures of the condo and provided lots of information about the area with so many helpful tips and suggestions that you gave me every confidence that we would get what we were paying for. In the end, we got much more, because the condo was so clean and it was fully equipped and when we had trouble with our internet, the person that takes care of the condo in Maui called right back and helped me fix it over the phone. The location of the condo Kihei Akahi is perfect, right across the street from Kamaole Beach 2 and within walking distance to Kamaole 1 and Kamaole 3, we were in the best part of Maui with no rain!!  Thank you very much Kathy!  I will be booking a trip again someday with you! - Sincerely, Shelly-Vancouver BC

February 2011 - Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy, We are enjoying our stay very much in your lovely condo, it is beautiful and stocked with everything we could ever think of needing - especially love the views!  Sadly, the time is getting close to when we have to leave. I can't find the email we got from you if there's anything else we need to do other than start the dishwasher, the sheets in the washer and garbage out... Your art is lovely, is there somewhere on Maui it's displayed?  Also, I'm going to check my work calendar for next Feb when we get home but if you could pencil us in to stay in C618 around the same time for 2 - 3 weeks?   Mahalo!  Ray and Sharon

January 2011 - Unit C618 - My daughter, my sister and I had a great girls' getaway at Kathy's condo C618 for 11 days in January. The location was perfect, right across from the beach, with views from our 6th floor lanai of both the sunrise over Haleakala and the sunset over the ocean! The condo is well-maintained and Kathy has provided all the comforts of home, including one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. I think this is one of the best values in Kihei and we will definitely return. - Pat P. Canada

And staying in your home gave us all the conveniences of home with a comfortable, convenient and just wonderful place to live for 2 weeks! I love the quiet, I even like the “wake-up birds” every morning! The land views BEACH, Mountains, flowers all are spectacular! Mike’s hope was to fish and fish! Had a mother and baby whale next to the boat and so what a memorable video that is! Also shore fishing he caught an octopus! We were told that is rare. The fish are so incredibly beautiful! Something way different from Lake Superior. Wailea shops something fun for everyone here. Thanks again! Pam and Mike A. Dulth MN.

March 2010 – Unit C616 - Hi Kathy, we are flying out late tomorrow. Is it possible to have a later check out? Whale season is at its peak. We are sitting on the lanai watching Kayakers observe a pod of whales right off shore. We went whale watching yesterday and it was amazing, the best 40 dollars spent. I will for sure be recommending this condo. It has everything you need and high end. Thanks Shawn - CA

July 09-Unit C618-Kathy, Thank you so much for sharing your Maui condo with us. We have so enjoyed our time here. Lots of beach time with a few drives. We toured Makawao and Lahaina, the swap meet on Saturday in Kahalui (great bargains and selections), and a trip to the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (726 S. Kihei Road). That was lots of fun and informative. We checked out Big Beach (be careful but fun), Makena, and any others. Our favorite snorkel spot remains Ahihi Kinau Reserve past the love. Great spot. Turtles, a moray eel, a zebra eel, lots of tang and marvelous fish. We are looking forward to our next trip. Thank you! Jeff and Donna. PS We love your artwork.

June 09-Unit C618-Aloha Kathy! It is departure day and we leave with full hearts! Your home here is both beautiful and peaceful, and we loved being here. We were lucky to be here for the Maui Film Festival and attended 3 evenings. What fun! The people at Maui Dive Co. got s going with snorkeling. We took their snorkeling trip to Molokini and “Turtle Town” enjoyed it thoroughly and then rented the snorkeling gear with the ½ wet suit. We snorkeled every day. The water is so beautiful. Your recommendations for everything were right on and so helpful. Thank you for all the care and consideration you give to your guests comfort and happiness. Sherry

June 2009 - C618 -Hi Kathy, Julie & I had a great time staying at your condo. This was our 30th wedding anniversary and what a way to spend it. The fruit basket was yummy. This was our first time in Maui and it was great. We did the Pearl Harbor tour, horse back riding, fishing for marlins, road to road to Hana, snorkeling, parasailing, swimming & helicopter ride to Molokini. We had such a great time for the 2 weeks we stayed at your place. The people were so friendly there and what a switch. We will be doing this again and I want to thank you very much for having us stay at your condo. The best thing was to be able to go down stairs walk across the street and jump into to the ocean, which was great. Thank you very much Scott & Julie

I don't know the next time we'll have a chance to visit again (we're actually moving out of CA in a few months), but when we return to Maui, we will definitely contact you again. Have a great day, Maiteeny PS. We took your advice on buying some local artwork. I bought a few items at the Haleakala Trading Co and we also bought some beautiful art glass from a gallery in the shops at Wailea! Maiteeny

Feb 2009 - D402 - Hello Linda and Kathy, Thank you, Linda, for your phone message this morning- we were at the Maui Ocean Centre, very interesting! Once in a while circumstances work out better than expected and this trip have been one of those life circumstances. The condo was even nicer and better equipped than expected, the grounds and location of the Kihei Akahi were ideal and lovely, and of course Maui is a most beautiful place- a real paradise. Please extend our thanks to the Harris' for the gorgeous roses for Valentine's Day and the yummy fruit basket from Maui Vision for our anniversary! These extras were very surprising to my family although I had been telling them all along of how helpful and efficient you were from our whole interactions starting last April. Thank you thank you for all you've done for this wonderful Maui vacation! Kim, Phil J. and family

December 2008 – C618 - Aloha Kathy, As usual, it is great to be back here, it was like walking into a 'home away from home. The beer in the fridge was the best thing. The day's travels all forgotten, sitting on the lanai, drinking my 'Longboards,' eating fresh Maui pineapple. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, such a life. Thank you for the fruit basket, it is always appreciated & well used. Yummy coffee & cookies. My oldest son & his wife are here for their 1st time & they also think that they are in Paradise. Hope that you are well, again, thank you for the fruit basket & the beer. I forgot to mention that I love the new colors, they look terrific. The side by side fridge with the ice dispenser is also invaluable. There was quite a storm a few days ago, thankfully the power didn't go out. Hope that you had some good weather on your holiday – Aloha Gaye.

September 2008 – C618 - Dear Kathy, It has been a long time from my summer vacation. In Japan, it became colder nowadays. I really love snow boarding, so I'm waiting for snow...I remember the days in Maui. It was very nice. I enjoyed everything! I stayed comfortably thanks to your condo. Besides, you provided that cheaper than the regular price. As my gratitude, I will send you this Japanese wash clothes. Which is yu-zen dying. These are very convenient and functional. In Maui I really enjoyed the life. First, I went to Krispy Kreme (there are some shops too in Japan. It appeared a few years ago) and Safeway to buy things we need in Maui life but before that, Hawaiian Air lost our baggage. Our 2 suitcases went to Hawaii. We didn't like to wait so we had our baggage delivered to our condo. We went to the beaches everyday. Some of the days sharks appeared. We couldn't enter the sea for more than 4 hours. I sometimes surfed (but little waves in the summer), sometimes we went shopping at the Farmer's Market and swap meet. This year, we challenged driving to Hana. It's a little far from Kihei, but it was really wonderful and scenic way. We got avocados!!! It was wild one. There was an avocado tree and my friend found it. There was some tiny trouble but there were all nice memories! Thanks a lot xxx - Mimi.

Sept 08 – C618 - We are back safely from our trip to Maui and Oahu and just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying in C618 at the Kihei Akahi! It's a nice quiet place to kick back, relax and listen to the sounds of the birds and the ocean. We explored the island thoroughly and got some great snorkeling in at the Ahihi Kinau Preserve. We did the Highway to Hana and the sunrise on Haleakala. Yes, we were busy! We came back to cold temperatures and some rain. Wish we were back on Maui. Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise. - Ilka and Doug M.

July 2008 – C618 - Hi Kathy and Linda, We are just leaving Maui today. Thank-you for hosting us at your lovely condo. We had a great time. We especially appreciated the beach equipment and internet access and great location. Your paintings were fantastic. Thanks again and we would love to stay here again on our next stay in Maui. Thanks, Sujan, Paula, and Alyssa

May 2008 – C618 – This was our first time visiting Maui, and we loved it! The weather was great, the temperature was perfect and the beaches were beautiful. We had lots that we wanted to do, and we managed to squeeze it all in during the week that we were here. It was so nice to be able to come back to the condo after our various activities and have a place of our own to relax and cook a meal. We spent a lot of time on the balcony admiring the view. The condo was great and very well stocked; we especially appreciated the beach chairs, snorkels, boogie boards, and the cooler. Thanks for the great place Kathy. – Karin and Chris

May 2008 - D402 - I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Kihei Akahi condo D402. It was wonderful, absolutely perfect for my daughter and I. Also, thank you very much for having fresh flowers in the unit and the basket of goodies that was delivered to our door upon arrival, those little touches do have a way of making a person feel special. As always our stay in Maui was fantastic and I can't wait for the day I become a permanent resident rather than just a visitor. Jade was lucky enough to meet and enjoy the company of another Canadian teenager her age during our stay (his family was also staying at the Kihei) so for her this trip was even more fun than she expected. Thank you for everything and we look forward to speaking with you real soon when we book our next trip to the Island. With warm regards, Leanne and Jade

May 2008 - D402 - Aloha Linda, Well we actually made the decision to just stay another night, May 22, and skip the headache of standing by for the flights tonight. I will leave a check for $332.03 on the counter made out to Marianne Harris. We will be leaving the the condo at 6ish pm on Friday, May 23rd, so if you'd like to tell Nancy, that would be great. We'll try to take all that we brought with us this time so she doesn't have to store our belongings again...ha-ha. Thanks for the kind words and you are a delight to deal with as well. As you know, there are many choices for condos on the island. We love Kihei Akahi D-402, but it's your service that makes our stay convenient and seamless. We hope to return in the fall so you should be hearing from us in the near future. Thanks again! Brett

 


 

April 2008-C618 - Kathy, We had a wonderful time in Maui and in your beautiful home. The basket was sure a nice surprise and treat. This is the Ocean Maui Center Xavier sure had fun there! Again that basket was great. The coffee was an eye opener at 5am the next morning when Xavier woke. Thanks again – Laurie Ann – Saskatoon Canada

March 2008 D402 - Dear Kathy and Linda With apologies for taking so long.... We hope you had a Happy Easter, ours was great. It has just taken so long to get things back to normal Mostly we want to thank you for such a lovely condo in Kehei. We were very pleasantly surprised, especially after a less than ideal one in Honolulu. I am hoping that you will pass on our thanks to the owners. We were very taken with the Asian decor --- such a departure from the usual. The fruit and goodies basket was a wonderful welcome surprise !! Thank you both, it was very generous and kind, and we greatly appreciated it. All in all we had a superlative Hawaiian vacation, with a few highlights...not the least was the Maui part. As always the whale watching is a favourite of ours. The lanai gave us a great view . We kept our binoculars at the ready all day and were not disappointed with the viewing. This is also the first time we have ventured up Haleakala and WOW !!! We were also lucky enough to get to the Pan Pacific Soccer Championship games, much to the envy of Ann's older brothers (and as a bonus we got to see David Beckham play!) It is now back to reality...it snowed a little this morning, now the sun is out, but so is the wind. Next week promises to be warmer or should I say less cold. The dog was very glad to have us home and we have waded through the pile of mail etc. The tans are fading ( I reckon the fading starts as soon as you step on the plane ) Hopefully it will not be 9 years before the next time. Again , thank you for the place, the treats and your help... Best regards Diane and Ann

March 2008-C214 -Dear Twyla, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Maui and staying in your Condo. We had a wonderful time and it was everything that we had hoped for. We grew to really enjoy and prefer the location on the island that you chose to purchase your condo in. It felt more like a neighborhood than a highly commercialized area, yet it was easily driveable to other locations. We really enjoyed the extras that having a condo provided us with over having a hotel room. We really enjoyed Maui and all of the recreational activities available. We also attended church there on Easter Sunday at Hope Chapel. Thanks again. It was a pleasure getting to know (email) you. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We may not have gone on this vacation if it hadn't been for talking to Tom and Bonnie about their vacation in your condo. We will be returning to Maui. Thanks again, Rose and Dean A.

Feb 2008-D402 - Aloha Kathy! Well, we're down to a few more days and wanted to confirm what was expected as far as sheets, towels, cleaning, etc. It was a nice visit, though the weather was a bit too cloudy and rainy for us. Fortunately, the sun showed up yesterday and it looks like our last days here will be nice! We look forward to renting a condo from you in the future! You are great! Brigitte - AK

Feb 2008 – C616 - Aloha Kathy, Just back from a wonderful month in Maui. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful. Couldn't believe the whales this year, they were exciting to watch from the lanai. I was wondering what you have available for January 30/09 to February 28/09? We stayed in Don Albers place and it worked out fine. As you know we usually stay at your place, but I know it is booked at these times. Would Don's place be available for next year? Please let me know what you have as soon as possible, as I would like to get everything booked; car, air tickets, etc. – Mahalo, Maureen, Canada.

Feb 2008 – C606 Thank you so much! We could have left our camera a number of places that day and we've accepted that it's probably gone. We are just using that as an excuse to revisit all the places so we can take another set of photos! I would have loved to send you some pictures of us in the condo cooking. One of our favorite days was the hike around Haleakala. Thank you again to the Carvers! We just loved the space and the zen appeal of the bamboo! It was perfect for my yoga practice. It was the perfect change of pace from our hectic lives in New York City. The decor captured the essence of island life and the peaceful escape we were seeking. We especially enjoyed the short walk right down to the beach to watch the whales jump out of the ocean. The views were breathtaking and created the romantic atmosphere we desired. We cooked most evenings in the wonderful kitchen and savored our Hawaiian inspired meals with some wine on the lanai. We are looking for a short term opportunity in mid July. The timing worked out perfect for the hiring for the schools but he might not know for sure which school he will be working at until closer to the beginning of the school year. Therefore we're looking for something for July and August and will then look for something more permanent after Labor Day. If you hear of anything in Kihei that is available please let us know. We really like this area best and thought it was centralized for both of us. We're coming with two suitcases each and that's it! I'm so excited. Mahalo for all your efforts! I appreciate everyone's help in building our future together. It was a time we will never forget. We really enjoyed our stay. I will definitely recommend the place to stay for friends and family! We'll be in touch for sure. – Kelley - NY

Feb 2008-C616 - Aloha Kathy and Linda - Thank you so much for the lovely basket. We were surprised when returning from grocery shopping. If you are in communication with Don I hope you will tell him that we are really enjoying the "sharp" knives he has; must be a chef. My son and I love to cook, so this is great. Weather is better today. Had a beautiful sunset last night. Just starting to unwind and we are both looking forward to a very relaxing holiday. Thanks again Linda and Kathy. Mahalo Maureen - Canada

Jan 2008-D402- Aloha Kathy and Linda! Mahalo for the lovely welcome basket! You are so nice! We also had fresh flowers on the table and the condo is perfect! The weather is not cooperating today but that was okay since it's been a travel day. Lots of wind, clouds, some rain and sun. Tomorrow is supposed to be partly cloudy but if we have to stay inside, what a nice place to be! Thank you so much for your assistance in the past several months! You are great! We know who to call in the future! - Brigitte, James, Gabrielle and Theresa - Alaska

Jan 2008-C618 and C616 - Aloha Linda, thank you for your phone message yesterday. I will recommend your company for anyone coming to Maui and looking for a condo. We will be back next year as well and will consider staying in Kathy's unit. As it turns out my mother in law is staying in C618 and we are in C616 and both enjoying our stay! We don't want to go home! I am sending a friend of mine to you and she wants to ask about your units so she'll be calling. I really enjoyed dealing with you so I am happy to recommend any of my friends. - Michelle M. Vernon, Canada

Sept 2007-C618 -Kathy, we had a great time in Maui for the short time we were There. We enjoyed your condo and your paintings on the walls. It has been hustle, bustle since we have gotten back. I finally had a few seconds to sit down and write you about our trip; by the way we went on the dinner cruise with Tony Smith and got our picture taken with him before we went on the cruise. He is a great human being. I hope to get to Maui some time next year for a little more time. Thanks again for letting us stay at your condo. – Ken and Dianne - Phoenix, AZ

Sept 2007-C618 - I have thoroughly enjoyed staying in your home, thank you for all of your flexibility with the rate and last minute payments. I think it's wonderful that you have a condo with such a great view. I have already referred your company to several of my friends who might be coming over early next year. Take care! Thanks again Kathy - Rachel L.

May 2007-C618-Aloha, It's hard to believe that we've been back from our trip to Maui for a little over a week now. We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had. Thank you so much for the wonderful basket of treats that you sent us. We have never tasted pineapple so good. The condo had all the comforts of home. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai every morning overlooking the ocean, and the evenings were just beautiful. We were very impressed at how well maintained the grounds were. It was a real treat to just walk down the driveway to the beach. Kathy, thank you so much for allowing us to check out later in the day. You have no idea how that eased things up at our end. We had so many wonderful experiences during our stay. Some of the highlights were the beautiful beaches, The Feast at Lele (on my birthday), a secretly planned massage and facial by Christian, shopping at Lahaina, watching the surfers at Ho'okipa. We ate some wonderful food. To name a few, Mama's Fish House was outstanding, the local fare at Hana Hou cafe, Fish Tacos at Alexanders, and of course Shave Ice. I could go on and on, but I'd have to write a novel. Needless to say, we had a wonderful trip and we will be back. Mahalo from the both of us for your part in making this an experience we will always remember. Sincerely, Diane and Phil - Nashua, NH

Jan 2007-Kamaole Sands-Kathy, I should have written sooner, but I am catching up at work....We had an impossible-to-describe wonderful time in Maui!!! What a paradise! The weather was perfect every day. We loved everything. We never go the same place twice (cuz there's just so much wonderful to see in this world), but we are already planning our next trip. We loved the condo, and felt that the price was excellent! We also loved that location, and after seeing the whole island , would return there again, without a doubt. We really liked the atmosphere, beaches, lack of high-rises, etc. I also really appreciated all the info you sent about the area - I had done quite a bit of "research " myself, but your info was a delightful extra - for example - finding "Little Beach" thru that small gate in that wall was like a miracle I will not soon forget. I have since dreamed again about the beauty of that beach- that was certainly a very special find. I thank you for that one!! Anyway, we just really could not have asked for more - we spent our days in a perfect combo of activities, and just beaching! We saw Hana, Upcountry,Lahaina, and at least 15 different beaches. We visited w/ many different people, which my family enjoyed. We did an all day whale cruise and snorkeled at Molokini and Lanai. Our daughters got to swim w/ the sea turtles and see lots of whales. We also saw lots of surfers, gorgeous waves, beaches beyond compare, sunsets, and the aquarium. All told, we did about half of what we had planned, so we'll just have to go back! Once we were there, we quickly realized, that we had to slow down, and just look, and b-r-e-a-t-h-e- too! I cannot thank you enough for it all. Seems like I happened upon you and our lovely little condo in a lucky state of grace! Fondly, Corinna – Wausau, WI

Jan 2007-C617-Hi, Kathy: Just a quick note to say that we had an absolutely fabulous time in Maui! The condo worked out great for us. It was a wonderful location, and the condo was clean, neat and had all that we needed. We enjoyed the beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, etc. etc. Nancy kindly let us put our bags in the condo early so that we could get changed and go to the beach, too. Your many suggestions were helpful too, and we followed several of them. If we ever come to Maui again, we would love to return to your condo at Kihei Akahi. Thanks again for everything, Kathy. Bill & Anne – BC Canada

Aloha Kathy: Just a quick email to let you know we returned last night and had a great time at C618. We'd like to do it again next year if the unit is available? Your paintings are lovely and I also loved the Asian touches throughout. Weather was great; just one day of heavy rain, but it was gone by afternoon. Truly enjoyed watching the sun come up with a cup of tea and then go into the ocean at sunset. You really do have the best views. Brought my binoculars and saw a few water spouts and a couple of fins, but no breaching. Maybe next time! Again, thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home away from home, it was wonderful. Mahalo Maureen and Larry L. - Delta, BC.

Aloha Kathy! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo...very nicely decorated and a wonderful location:) We had a great time in Maui and will definitely be back again someday. We kept very busy seeing many places and spending the last few days snorkeling a lot and enjoying the vacation. I will definitely recommend your place to anyone I know. We signed your book and gave a few recommendations. I'm missing it already! Mahalo, Sara S. - Sioux Falls, SD

Aloha Kathy, We arrived home safely on March 7th after a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. Thank you so much for the rental of your condo. We used the beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, etc. Everything was so handy. I wish we could have spent the last two days there also. I left a vase of Hawaiian flowers on the dining room table. We had bought them along the road on our way to Hanna and enjoyed them for our remaining time at the condo. I left a note for them to be enjoyed. The weather was perfect the whole 10 days we were in Hawaii. Went snorkeling and whale watching and bumming everyday. The high speed Catamaran we went out on one day was wet and wild. I made the mistake of sitting in the front and the misty waves were ok but I didn't like seeing a 12 foot wave coming at me as we were coming down from a 6 foot wave. Death grip on the seat probably kept me from being washed out to sea. Everyone in the front was wet from head to toe. Ate at Roy's in Kihei, which was excellent. Dessert to die for. Again thank you so much for the condo. I will recommend it to anyone coming your way.Carolyn and Bob - St. John, IN

Hi Kathy, Happy New Year 2003. We enjoyed your place very much and would like to come back one day. I am a teacher and my time is set for the school holidays only. Those are usually the busiest times everywhere and we have to book our tickets well in advance. I will let you know if we are going to come back to Maui and when, as I would like to rent your place again. Your place is very comfortable, nicely appointed, peaceful and homey. There is everything one needs. I also like the location, the views and the birds singing in the morning. So lets keep in touch for future stay. Would you be interested in renting your place to some of my friends? There is always someone looking for accommodation in Maui. Please let me know if I can pass your number on. MahaloIvona S. - British Columbia, Canada

Well we finally got home yesterday We had a great time in Maui and the condo was perfect for our purposes, close to everything, and very affordable. I loved the view and watching the birds every morning. I got a good photo of the sunrise coming over Haleakala from the porch perhaps I can e-mail it to you and you can show it off. Anyhow, thank you for everything. We appreciate your hospitality, the welcome basket and your condo unit. Let me know if we checked out okay. Thanks for everything. John H. - Rockville, MD

Kathy, Our return trip here was even better than the first. Beautiful weather, golfing, great beaches and sunsets. We had a fabulous time and relaxing vacation. It was good meeting you.

Hi Kathy, I just wanted to write to thank you for such wonderful accommodations in Kihei. You are such a thoughtful and considerate person. There was nothing you hadn't thought of to make our stay more pleasant. The view was beautiful, the condo was homey and the driving incredible. Than you so very much. We will be back, possibly next year, but more probably '06. I have already recommended several others to contact you. I also wanted to commend you once more on your artwork. It's lovely and now that I have seen its inspiration, I can appreciate it even more. Once again thank you.Sandra H. and Chad P. - Pasadena, MD

Aloha Kathy, Tomorrow is our last day. We have been very happy here in Maui and also your condo. Maui is such a beautiful island. Went round the island for an hour in a helicopter, visit to Lahaina, snorkeling cruise, lots of barbecues and meals out and of course the wedding at the Grand Wailea chapel. The wedding was perfect, absolutely beautiful and the reception at the Sea Watch restaurant watching sunset was a dream come true. We didn't get chance to cycle down the volcano, the Hanna road and the Sugar Cane train amongst other things but we will definitely be back in a couple of years. Maybe we could stay at your condo again? Thank you very much for your help for this trip and hope you are well and visiting here yourself soon. Maui really is the most beautiful island in the world. Mahalo.Amanda and Steve - Surrey, UK

November/December 2012 - Unit C618 - Kathy, Aloha! Wow, what a fabulous 'new' kitchen!! We love it. New stove, micro, dishwasher, sink, taps...And a new vanity in the bathroom with great lighting! Once again, we have had a wonderful time in our home away from home!! We thank you! Golfing this trip has been the most reasonable - Pukalani was $66 for 2 and Elle Aire was $65 for 2. We again rented bikes with all gear in Haiku. Drove to top of Haleakala rode down to Kula. Had pizza and beer then went back up and repeated and then rode to Haiku about 30 miles in all! Out of this world! Going through lavender fields etc. Vegetation very lush! Great Aloha Friday gatherings at lower pool. Wonderful walks, swimming, and snorkeling. Restaurants we recommend Five Palms, Cafe au lea, Cafe on the Greens just a few favorites! Once again a wonderful time was had at our home away from home! Merry Christmas! See you in February. Mahalo Kathy - Dianne and Harley, Vancouver.

November 2012 – Unit D204 - Hi Kathy, We got back from Maui last Thursday morning, what a wonderful trip we had. Weather was perfect and the Freeland condo was just lovely. Also thank you so much for the welcoming basket of goodies, I loved it all, especially the pineapple and the Maui potato chips! I have since e mailed Frito Lay for locations to buy the potato chips, especially the onion ones but no luck. I put in Chicago zip codes, Cleveland, We have a daughter who lives there, but no where to find Maui potato chips. I guess only in Hawaii! Once again, thank you so much for all your help in finding the right condo for us. We will always have wonderful memories. My husband just through making up a picture album with all the photos he took, turned out real nice. Dolores M.

Nov 2012 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, Paul and I really enjoyed our stay in Kihei, of course the weather was perfect and the location of the condo was great! We had a minor glitch finding the condo only because we didn’t realize where the highway changed; however once we got our bearings we were good to go for the time we were on the Island. We had a nice time between the beaches and site seeing. Thank you for the basket that was a nice treat after a day of travelling. We only had to call for one issue which was a cracked toilet seat; John responded and replaced it while we were out one afternoon. What a great way to wake up with all of the birds singing in the morning, it is a good way to get up and enjoy the beautiful morning and get the day started. The condo was comfortable and the facility very nice and of course a great location. I would recommend this to friends and would certainly stay again. Thank you for your help with getting everything set up and making our stay easy. Mahalo! Susan

November 2012 - Unit C617. The location is great, directly across the beach from Kam II, 5 minute drive to Wailea, and no more than 15 minutes from all of the Wailea and Makena beaches. The condo is very nice and stocked with everything one needs to cook and stay for a week or more in Kihei. Very nice view from the lanai of the ocean. Great value for the nightly rate. Our only dislike was the futon couch. While is fits the decor nicely, it's not at all comfortable and I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to sleep on. I would love to see it replaced with a comfy sleeper couch or recliner couch.

October/November 2012 - Unit C618 - Thank you again for the use of your beautiful condo! Your renovations are wonderful and as always we love to be surrounded by your artwork!

Lots of snorkeling, some hiking, horseback riding, polo watching and more. The weather has been beyond fantastic. Very tough to have to go home. Thanks so much also for the gift basket!

August 2012 – Unit D402 - We are back from Maui and it was absolutely wonderful. The condo was awesome and if I know anyone going to Maui I would pass your condo information along!!!

August 2012 - Unit D402 - Marian and Kathy, Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with our recent stay at the Kihei Akahi unit D402. Kathy provided very responsive and professional support during the booking process. The unit itself is clean and very nicely set. Everything that one might want to have on a vacation in Maui was available in the unit and I was so impressed by the well equipped kitchen. The location is the best! The beach and a full range of restaurants are all within short walk or drive from the resort. The office staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back! All the Best, Adva and family

July 2012 - Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy, Thank you for making our home away from home a memorable experience here in Maui. We truly enjoyed the gift basket and your condo accommodations.

Thank you again for sharing your home to make our dreams come true. Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo - Woody and Sonya

July 2012 - Unit C618 - Kathy Thanks so much for another lovely visit to Maui. Your suggestions are helpful, the condo terrific and the basket much appreciated.

June 2012- Unit D204 - Just got home yesterday from this beautiful home away from home. Looking at the pictures makes me wish I was back. The condo was incredible - the only place that I have ever stayed where I felt that everything was clean and ready for my use. I felt like it was my home while I was there-and I am usually funny about sitting on someone else's couch or drinking from the glasses that are there-no worries in this unit. Thank you Kathy for making the reservation process so easy and thank you to the Freelands for letting us stay in your piece of paradise. My first experience with VRBO - and it was more than expected. I will definietly recommend this unit as well as Kathy's to others. Thanks again. - Val and Mike

Thanks very much. - Dave and Marina

April 2012 - Unit 204 - Aloha Kathy, Thought that I would e-mail you to let you know how much we enjoyed Unit D204 in Kihei Akahi. We have stayed in other condos at Kihei Akahi, and this one was by far the best. Thank you also for the "Welcome Basket".

March 2012 - Island Surf #408 - Aloha back at you Chuck, We went out with Rascal Sports Fishing & both caught Mahi Mahi's, so they cut some up for us & we BBQ'd it at the condo. (They just gave us enough for a GOOD feeding of it.) As for the condo, no complaints what so ever. The TV in the bedroom didn't work, but we got up so early in the morning to do things. That we both couldn't of stayed up to watch it any way. We would highly recommend your condo to all our friends; it was clean, quiet, great view, so close to everything, affordable. And the welcome basket was a nice touch too. There is nothing I would change about the condo & I can't think of anything to improve on. It's a wonderful home away from home!! We were so happy that you allowed us to have a later check out time. That we were happy to do all the laundry & change the bed. Thanks again so much, you'll be hearing from us on our next visit. Sylvia & Sharon

March 2012 - Unit C617 - We are thoroughly enjoying our stay here in Maui. The condo is beautiful. Thanks so much for the delicious gift basket. I hate to say it but it time to start thinking about going home. Thank you very much for the late check out. We will ensure that everything is taken care of.  You always gave us prompt responses whenever we had any questions or concerns. We would most definitely refer you to friends and family. We sure hope to visit Maui again and would not hesitate to contact you. Thanks so much, Bob

March 2012 - Unit D204 - Just wanted to say the place looks great and can't wait to see the island. Oh, and thanks for the gift basket. Much appreciated. Just wanted to thank you again for setting us up with such a wonderful place, and to the Freelands who's condo turned out beautiful. As a tradesman myself I noticed the high quality of workmanship done on their place and it's fantastic. We had a wonderful time there, kids just loved it . But it's back to reality now and we look forward to returning in the near future. Please pass this on to the Freelands for us. Until next time, Mahalo and Aloha Heather, Jason and Family.

March 2012 – Unit D204 – Thank you so much for your hospitality! Your condo home is gorgeous and meets every need. It is my first visit to Maui! It is a gorgeous place with lots to do visit, lots of time to relax and enjoy the peaceful slow pace! My favorite part is the ocean with the crashing waves and beautiful clean waters! Viewing the whale from the beach was awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your home with me! – Shirley P. Canada

February 2012 – Unit C618 - Kathy, We just got back from your lovely condo yesterday. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the gift basket--it was very thoughtful and I LOVE pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing your home. We hadn't been to Maui before but we are in love with it. We did so many fun things (well, hiking and going to the beach, but that's what we like) while we were there. Your condo was so centrally located and well-equipped... as soon as we thought "I wonder if there is a...?" we would look and there it would be. Also, the convenience of such a delightful beach right across the street was just wonderful.   Before the end of our second day we were planning our next trip. But as I looked through your guest book a fear stole over me... you typically have tenants for the whole month of February! And indeed, I've just checked your calendar on Mauivision and the whole month of February 2013 is booked! :(  However, I see that your company also manages C617 next door. Is it available?  Regards, Kelly

November 2012 - Unit C312 – We just returned from viewing C312 and OMG - it is gorgeous!!!! The cleaning ladies were there and we had a great chat with them. And it looked like they were doing a very thorough job. They said it is one of the nicest units and we can certainly see why. The renos you have done are wonderful - love the big granite counter, large new kitchen, tile work, furnishings that are very comfortable, beautiful bathroom, the bed looks so comfy and just everything you have done is very tasteful and lovingly thought of.

January 2012 -Unit C313 - Mahalo Kathy for the lovely basket of goodies.  Very thoughtful and over the top! WE are enjoying the unit C313 of Derick & Jean Yu's!  Nicely appointed unit with everything! They also sent a beautiful boquet of tropical flowers! It is a nice aloha Maui style that is why we love this place.  Thanks again for accommodating us on our vacation.  We will return and have noticed you have a few more in Bldg D coming available D204 D402 so will keep them in consideration as well. WE were in Bldg D for most of  our vacation but it is really nice here in Bldg C as well.  Different views but also very nicely appointed and very clean and lovely.  Take Care  Happy New Year as well.  Aloha.  Mahalo again for the lovely basket.  Sincerely Dave & Brenda D.

December 2011 - Unit C313 - Hi Kathy, Thanks for letting the cleaning crew give us permission to drop our bags off. That was very helpful and they were such nice people. The flowers that were waiting for us are beautiful. What a nice gesture. The unit is beautiful and so comfortable, we really feel at home here. We will definitely be coming back!  We don't need an extended checkout time as we have to be at the airport by about 10 a.m. Once again thanks for thinking of that.  Thanks for the great hospitality, Ron and Heather

November 2012 - Unit C312 - All your wall colors are beautiful as is the art work and the special touches here and there. Well done - you both must be thrilled!   We are very excited to be lucky enough to stay there in March and know we will love it. In all the years we have been coming here I can't believe we haven't considered the Akahi - we sure think differently now. - Cindy

October 2011 – Unit D402 - Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for a wonderful stay again in Maui in Kihei Akahi D402. (October 29 - November 10).  We had a really nice time and got to see some spinner dolphins!  Thank you for the fruit basket and the wonderful flowers that greeted us in the condo.  We had a great flight there and back and really did not want to leave.  We have to figure out to stay for 4 weeks!!  That should do it!!  Please forward our thanks to the Harris's.  Also, we thanked Janice 'We Mop It" cleaners (I think that is what they are called) as some lights did not have bulbs and she came within 15 minutes to drop some off.  Very good service. We hope you found the condo in excellent condition as we did the laundry, dishes, garbage, recycle before we left. My Mom and I treat it like home.  Again, thank you for the stay; I am already missing the beautiful aromas of the flowers, the sound of the ocean and the wake-up call of the birds!!  Kindest regards, Janice M. and Nancy J.

Oct 2011 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, I am so sorry for getting back to you late, it's been crazy over here. My husband and I just and are in the works of unpacking while starting our new jobs. We wish we were still in Maui! Anyways, mahalo for your hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay in C619, it's a beautiful place. You were very right, it was so nice to have two bathrooms! Once we got back from snorkeling each day there was no rock, paper, scissors for who gets the shower first! :) We also really appreciated your 'Welcome to Maui' newsletter. We loved the Secret Beach (see attached photos), Cafe Des Amis (delicious!), and the Ahihi-Kinau Preserve (swimming in a fish bowl!). We loved how thorough it was; when we took extra long beach breaks we were able to just refer to it (as far as Ka'anapali!) and find a good place for a late dinner. It really was a great and valuable resource, again, thank you. I'm sure you will appreciate this as you embrace social marketing such as YouTube, but I love to write reviews. I have a Yelp account and am trying to start a tripadvisor acct, too. There are a few mentions of a "Kathy" on tripadvisor for Kihei Akahi, with no contact info. I would also like to add my recommendation for those looking for a place to stay in Kihei. May I direct my review to an email address or website for you? If that's alright, please let me know what contact information you would like left in my review. I am going to try to get those reviews out in the next week! :) Mahalo, Pia

Oct 2011 - Unit C617 - Kathy, We have settled in and wanted to say thank you for the lovely basket and card. Chip was surprised that you knew it was his 28th anniversary celebration.

August 2011 - Unit C312 - I couldn't have been happier to be the first guests in this incredible property! I have been going to Maui twice a year on average for the last 5 years, and this is the best, most comfortable property I have ever stayed at in all my stays, and what better than in central Kihei! My girlfriend and I went for a nice getaway, but this property would work just as well for up to 4 people with the queen sized pull out couch! The photos don't do the actual property justice - the kitchen is very spacious and the granite counters very spacious. The bathroom and 2-person tiled shower is fantastic, and the lanai and patio furniture makes the best place to enjoy some Kona coffee and coconut pancakes while overlooking the ocean first thing in the morning! The TV and IPOD dock radio are great to listen to your favorite music, or catch up on a favourite show with a nice glass of wine at night as you unwind in preparation for the next days events. The beach chairs and towels, cooler and boogie board were great additions and were very handy when you make the short walk across the street to the beach! Kathy, their property manager, is incredible and readily available for anything that you may need from her. Neal and Joe and INCREDIBLE owners and also always available! I have nothing but good things to say about them and their property and I highly recommend it! I am referring all my friends and family here and I myself will certainly be a return guest! A beautiful location, a beautiful property, and incredible owners - I definitely recommend it! - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

June 2011 - Unit C618 - My husband, daughter and I had an absolutely awesome time in Kathy’s condo. We were there about the same time four years ago and, likewise, had an awesome time. We stayed at the condo both times and our experience was absolutely wonderful. Everything was fully stocked and we never really had to go out to buy anything because everything was already there, including coffee. The beach was 5 minutes away and we really took advantage of it. One thing that Kathy did was to provide a printout of advice as well as places to visit and dine out. Very helpful. Would I go back? Absolutely!!! - Genia J.

June 2011 – Unit C618 – Aloha Kathy, Mahalo oo much for the use of your beautiful condo.  We loved our stay here.  Thank you for the gift basket.  We arrived late and hungry so it was a real treat and greatly appreciated!  Your art work is beautiful.  You are so gifted and talented.  Thank goodness for cameras.  That is as much art as we are capable of!  Thanks too for all the helpful info you provided us with – food, beaches, activities, etc. Bev Gannon’s restaurants are superb and bonus, we visited during Wailea Restaurant walk!  Three weeks here went by much too fast.  We will have to come back!  Mahalo again Paul and Beverly P Calgary, Canada

May 2011 - Unit C619 - We recently stayed in Unit C619 for ten days at the end of May and I had to write you a customer satisfaction letter because our vacation was even better than we imagined!  It was my first trip to Maui, and being a single mother of two teenagers, it can be pretty scary to book a trip on the VRBO. But you were terrific because you called me back , instead of emailing me and hearing your voice really reassured me. Then when you sent detailed pictures of the condo and provided lots of information about the area with so many helpful tips and suggestions that you gave me every confidence that we would get what we were paying for. In the end, we got much more, because the condo was so clean and it was fully equipped and when we had trouble with our internet, the person that takes care of the condo in Maui called right back and helped me fix it over the phone. The location of the condo Kihei Akahi is perfect, right across the street from Kamaole Beach 2 and within walking distance to Kamaole 1 and Kamaole 3, we were in the best part of Maui with no rain!!  Thank you very much Kathy!  I will be booking a trip again someday with you! - Sincerely, Shelly-Vancouver BC

I can't find the email we got from you if there's anything else we need to do other than start the dishwasher, the sheets in the washer and garbage out... Your art is lovely, is there somewhere on Maui it's displayed?  Also, I'm going to check my work calendar for next Feb when we get home but if you could pencil us in to stay in C618 around the same time for 2 - 3 weeks?   Mahalo!  Ray and Sharon

And staying in your home gave us all the conveniences of home with a comfortable, convenient and just wonderful place to live for 2 weeks! I love the quiet, I even like the “wake-up birds” every morning! The land views BEACH, Mountains, flowers all are spectacular! Mike’s hope was to fish and fish! Had a mother and baby whale next to the boat and so what a memorable video that is! Also shore fishing he caught an octopus! We were told that is rare. The fish are so incredibly beautiful! Something way different from Lake Superior. Wailea shops something fun for everyone here. Thanks again! Pam and Mike A. Dulth MN.

March 2010 – Unit C616 - Hi Kathy, we are flying out late tomorrow. Is it possible to have a later check out? Whale season is at its peak. We are sitting on the lanai watching Kayakers observe a pod of whales right off shore. We went whale watching yesterday and it was amazing, the best 40 dollars spent. I will for sure be recommending this condo. It has everything you need and high end. Thanks Shawn - CA

July 09-Unit C618-Kathy, Thank you so much for sharing your Maui condo with us. We have so enjoyed our time here. Lots of beach time with a few drives. We toured Makawao and Lahaina, the swap meet on Saturday in Kahalui (great bargains and selections), and a trip to the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (726 S. Kihei Road). That was lots of fun and informative. We checked out Big Beach (be careful but fun), Makena, and any others. Our favorite snorkel spot remains Ahihi Kinau Reserve past the love. Great spot. Turtles, a moray eel, a zebra eel, lots of tang and marvelous fish. We are looking forward to our next trip. Thank you! Jeff and Donna. PS We love your artwork.

June 09-Unit C618-Aloha Kathy! It is departure day and we leave with full hearts! Your home here is both beautiful and peaceful, and we loved being here. We were lucky to be here for the Maui Film Festival and attended 3 evenings. What fun! The people at Maui Dive Co. got s going with snorkeling. We took their snorkeling trip to Molokini and “Turtle Town” enjoyed it thoroughly and then rented the snorkeling gear with the ½ wet suit. We snorkeled every day. The water is so beautiful. Your recommendations for everything were right on and so helpful. Thank you for all the care and consideration you give to your guests comfort and happiness. Sherry

June 09-Unit C618-Aloha Kathy, Your lovely place was more than I imagined. Your generosity and kindness is so appreciated. You will be hearing from me for future visits. I greatly appreciated your write up of places to go and things to do. Every day was a luscious treat. My visit was too short but filled with memories for a lifetime. Cindy

June 2009 - C618 -Hi Kathy, Julie & I had a great time staying at your condo. This was our 30th wedding anniversary and what a way to spend it. The fruit basket was yummy. This was our first time in Maui and it was great. We did the Pearl Harbor tour, horse back riding, fishing for marlins, road to road to Hana, snorkeling, parasailing, swimming & helicopter ride to Molokini. We had such a great time for the 2 weeks we stayed at your place. The people were so friendly there and what a switch. We will be doing this again and I want to thank you very much for having us stay at your condo. The best thing was to be able to go down stairs walk across the street and jump into to the ocean, which was great. Thank you very much Scott & Julie

April 2009 – C618 - April 2009 – C618 - Hi Kathy and Linda, Just wanted to thank you again for everything, we had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect we really appreciated having access to chairs and the snorkel gear. We had a wonderful holiday. Very relaxing. Your snorkel recommendations were awesome. We liked swimming with the turtles right here at Kamaole II the best. It was wonderful to watch the whales from the lanai. We will be back to Maui hopefully before too long, we just have to get through the winter Olympics and then we can think about our next holiday. All the best Nancy and Julia

March 2009 – C606 - We are back from beautiful Maui and wanted to thank you both for the lovely fruit basket we recieved after checking into our condo. It was an unexpected surprise...thank you so much. We'll definately be in touch with you in the future and may be looking at staying a month or so. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the prompt response from the owners in dealing with the phone. Their condo is lovely. Mahalo for everything! Brenda

March 2009 - C618 and C309 – Hi Kathy! Just wanted to let you know that everyone had a fantastic time in Maui. My family really enjoyed your condo, and we all appreciated the wonderful gift baskets that you had delivered - thanks so much! It's been awhile since I've seen your unit (C618) and the updates that you've made are great! I don't know the next time we'll have a chance to visit again (we're actually moving out of CA in a few months), but when we return to Maui, we will definitely contact you again. Have a great day, Maiteeny PS. We took your advice on buying some local artwork. I bought a few items at the Haleakala Trading Co and we also bought some beautiful art glass from a gallery in the shops at Wailea! Maiteeny

March 09 - C617 - Hi Kathy and Linda, Tara and I have kept meaning to email you to say the condo and your service was awesome.

March 09 – Unit C618 - Kathy, Susan and I arrived home today, after a wonderful holiday in maui. thank you for providing us with a great place to stay. We had a couple of days of rain...but it was still a heck of a lot warmer than it was at home. Everything worked out well for us. We look forward to returning to Maui again next year (not soon enough!) Mahalo - Don and Susan

Feb 2009 - D402 - Hello Linda and Kathy, Thank you, Linda, for your phone message this morning- we were at the Maui Ocean Centre, very interesting! Once in a while circumstances work out better than expected and this trip have been one of those life circumstances. The condo was even nicer and better equipped than expected, the grounds and location of the Kihei Akahi were ideal and lovely, and of course Maui is a most beautiful place- a real paradise. Please extend our thanks to the Harris' for the gorgeous roses for Valentine's Day and the yummy fruit basket from Maui Vision for our anniversary! These extras were very surprising to my family although I had been telling them all along of how helpful and efficient you were from our whole interactions starting last April. Thank you thank you for all you've done for this wonderful Maui vacation! Kim, Phil J. and family

January 2009 - C616 - Aloha Kathy, Linda and Don - Thank you for all your help with our vacation and the basket of goodies. We had a great time here in Maui. Great weather and lots of whales.

December 2008 – C618 - Aloha Kathy, As usual, it is great to be back here, it was like walking into a 'home away from home. The beer in the fridge was the best thing. The day's travels all forgotten, sitting on the lanai, drinking my 'Longboards,' eating fresh Maui pineapple. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, such a life. Thank you for the fruit basket, it is always appreciated & well used. Yummy coffee & cookies. My oldest son & his wife are here for their 1st time & they also think that they are in Paradise. Hope that you are well, again, thank you for the fruit basket & the beer. I forgot to mention that I love the new colors, they look terrific. The side by side fridge with the ice dispenser is also invaluable. There was quite a storm a few days ago, thankfully the power didn't go out. Hope that you had some good weather on your holiday – Aloha Gaye.

September 2008 – C618 - Dear Kathy, It has been a long time from my summer vacation. In Japan, it became colder nowadays. I really love snow boarding, so I'm waiting for snow...I remember the days in Maui. It was very nice. I enjoyed everything! I stayed comfortably thanks to your condo. Besides, you provided that cheaper than the regular price. As my gratitude, I will send you this Japanese wash clothes. Which is yu-zen dying. These are very convenient and functional. In Maui I really enjoyed the life. First, I went to Krispy Kreme (there are some shops too in Japan. It appeared a few years ago) and Safeway to buy things we need in Maui life but before that, Hawaiian Air lost our baggage. Our 2 suitcases went to Hawaii. We didn't like to wait so we had our baggage delivered to our condo. We went to the beaches everyday. Some of the days sharks appeared. We couldn't enter the sea for more than 4 hours. I sometimes surfed (but little waves in the summer), sometimes we went shopping at the Farmer's Market and swap meet. This year, we challenged driving to Hana. It's a little far from Kihei, but it was really wonderful and scenic way. We got avocados!!! It was wild one. There was an avocado tree and my friend found it. There was some tiny trouble but there were all nice memories! Thanks a lot xxx - Mimi.

Sept 08 – C618 - We are back safely from our trip to Maui and Oahu and just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying in C618 at the Kihei Akahi! It's a nice quiet place to kick back, relax and listen to the sounds of the birds and the ocean. We explored the island thoroughly and got some great snorkeling in at the Ahihi Kinau Preserve. We did the Highway to Hana and the sunrise on Haleakala. Yes, we were busy! We came back to cold temperatures and some rain. Wish we were back on Maui. Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise. - Ilka and Doug M.

July 2008 – C618 - Hi Kathy and Linda, We are just leaving Maui today. Thank-you for hosting us at your lovely condo. We had a great time. We especially appreciated the beach equipment and internet access and great location. Your paintings were fantastic. Thanks again and we would love to stay here again on our next stay in Maui. Thanks, Sujan, Paula, and Alyssa

May 2008 – C618 – This was our first time visiting Maui, and we loved it! The weather was great, the temperature was perfect and the beaches were beautiful. We had lots that we wanted to do, and we managed to squeeze it all in during the week that we were here. It was so nice to be able to come back to the condo after our various activities and have a place of our own to relax and cook a meal. We spent a lot of time on the balcony admiring the view. The condo was great and very well stocked; we especially appreciated the beach chairs, snorkels, boogie boards, and the cooler. Thanks for the great place Kathy. – Karin and Chris

May 2008 - D402 - I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Kihei Akahi condo D402. It was wonderful, absolutely perfect for my daughter and I. Also, thank you very much for having fresh flowers in the unit and the basket of goodies that was delivered to our door upon arrival, those little touches do have a way of making a person feel special. As always our stay in Maui was fantastic and I can't wait for the day I become a permanent resident rather than just a visitor. Jade was lucky enough to meet and enjoy the company of another Canadian teenager her age during our stay (his family was also staying at the Kihei) so for her this trip was even more fun than she expected. Thank you for everything and we look forward to speaking with you real soon when we book our next trip to the Island. With warm regards, Leanne and Jade

May 2008 - D402 - Aloha Linda, Well we actually made the decision to just stay another night, May 22, and skip the headache of standing by for the flights tonight. I will leave a check for $332.03 on the counter made out to Marianne Harris. We will be leaving the the condo at 6ish pm on Friday, May 23rd, so if you'd like to tell Nancy, that would be great. We'll try to take all that we brought with us this time so she doesn't have to store our belongings again...ha-ha. Thanks for the kind words and you are a delight to deal with as well. As you know, there are many choices for condos on the island. We love Kihei Akahi D-402, but it's your service that makes our stay convenient and seamless. We hope to return in the fall so you should be hearing from us in the near future. Thanks again! Brett

 


 

April 2008-C618 - Kathy, We had a wonderful time in Maui and in your beautiful home. The basket was sure a nice surprise and treat. This is the Ocean Maui Center Xavier sure had fun there! Again that basket was great. The coffee was an eye opener at 5am the next morning when Xavier woke. Thanks again – Laurie Ann – Saskatoon Canada

March 2008 D402 - Dear Kathy and Linda With apologies for taking so long.... We hope you had a Happy Easter, ours was great. It has just taken so long to get things back to normal Mostly we want to thank you for such a lovely condo in Kehei. We were very pleasantly surprised, especially after a less than ideal one in Honolulu. I am hoping that you will pass on our thanks to the owners. We were very taken with the Asian decor --- such a departure from the usual. The fruit and goodies basket was a wonderful welcome surprise !! Thank you both, it was very generous and kind, and we greatly appreciated it. All in all we had a superlative Hawaiian vacation, with a few highlights...not the least was the Maui part. As always the whale watching is a favourite of ours. The lanai gave us a great view . We kept our binoculars at the ready all day and were not disappointed with the viewing. This is also the first time we have ventured up Haleakala and WOW !!! We were also lucky enough to get to the Pan Pacific Soccer Championship games, much to the envy of Ann's older brothers (and as a bonus we got to see David Beckham play!) It is now back to reality...it snowed a little this morning, now the sun is out, but so is the wind. Next week promises to be warmer or should I say less cold. The dog was very glad to have us home and we have waded through the pile of mail etc. The tans are fading ( I reckon the fading starts as soon as you step on the plane ) Hopefully it will not be 9 years before the next time. Again , thank you for the place, the treats and your help... Best regards Diane and Ann

March 2008-C214 -Dear Twyla, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Maui and staying in your Condo. We had a wonderful time and it was everything that we had hoped for. We grew to really enjoy and prefer the location on the island that you chose to purchase your condo in. It felt more like a neighborhood than a highly commercialized area, yet it was easily driveable to other locations. We really enjoyed the extras that having a condo provided us with over having a hotel room. We really enjoyed Maui and all of the recreational activities available. We also attended church there on Easter Sunday at Hope Chapel. Thanks again. It was a pleasure getting to know (email) you. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We may not have gone on this vacation if it hadn't been for talking to Tom and Bonnie about their vacation in your condo. We will be returning to Maui. Thanks again, Rose and Dean A.

Feb 2008-D402 - Aloha Kathy! Well, we're down to a few more days and wanted to confirm what was expected as far as sheets, towels, cleaning, etc. It was a nice visit, though the weather was a bit too cloudy and rainy for us. Fortunately, the sun showed up yesterday and it looks like our last days here will be nice! We look forward to renting a condo from you in the future! You are great! Brigitte - AK

Feb 2008 – C616 - Aloha Kathy, Just back from a wonderful month in Maui. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful. Couldn't believe the whales this year, they were exciting to watch from the lanai. I was wondering what you have available for January 30/09 to February 28/09? We stayed in Don Albers place and it worked out fine. As you know we usually stay at your place, but I know it is booked at these times. Would Don's place be available for next year? Please let me know what you have as soon as possible, as I would like to get everything booked; car, air tickets, etc. – Mahalo, Maureen, Canada.

Feb 2008 – C606 Thank you so much! We could have left our camera a number of places that day and we've accepted that it's probably gone. We are just using that as an excuse to revisit all the places so we can take another set of photos! I would have loved to send you some pictures of us in the condo cooking. One of our favorite days was the hike around Haleakala. Thank you again to the Carvers! We just loved the space and the zen appeal of the bamboo! It was perfect for my yoga practice. It was the perfect change of pace from our hectic lives in New York City. The decor captured the essence of island life and the peaceful escape we were seeking. We especially enjoyed the short walk right down to the beach to watch the whales jump out of the ocean. The views were breathtaking and created the romantic atmosphere we desired. We cooked most evenings in the wonderful kitchen and savored our Hawaiian inspired meals with some wine on the lanai. We are looking for a short term opportunity in mid July. The timing worked out perfect for the hiring for the schools but he might not know for sure which school he will be working at until closer to the beginning of the school year. Therefore we're looking for something for July and August and will then look for something more permanent after Labor Day. If you hear of anything in Kihei that is available please let us know. We really like this area best and thought it was centralized for both of us. We're coming with two suitcases each and that's it! I'm so excited. Mahalo for all your efforts! I appreciate everyone's help in building our future together. It was a time we will never forget. We really enjoyed our stay. I will definitely recommend the place to stay for friends and family! We'll be in touch for sure. – Kelley - NY

Feb 2008-C616 - Aloha Kathy and Linda - Thank you so much for the lovely basket. We were surprised when returning from grocery shopping. If you are in communication with Don I hope you will tell him that we are really enjoying the "sharp" knives he has; must be a chef. My son and I love to cook, so this is great. Weather is better today. Had a beautiful sunset last night. Just starting to unwind and we are both looking forward to a very relaxing holiday. Thanks again Linda and Kathy. Mahalo Maureen - Canada

Jan 2008-D402- Aloha Kathy and Linda! Mahalo for the lovely welcome basket! You are so nice! We also had fresh flowers on the table and the condo is perfect! The weather is not cooperating today but that was okay since it's been a travel day. Lots of wind, clouds, some rain and sun. Tomorrow is supposed to be partly cloudy but if we have to stay inside, what a nice place to be! Thank you so much for your assistance in the past several months! You are great! We know who to call in the future! - Brigitte, James, Gabrielle and Theresa - Alaska

Jan 2008-C618 and C616 - Aloha Linda, thank you for your phone message yesterday. I will recommend your company for anyone coming to Maui and looking for a condo. We will be back next year as well and will consider staying in Kathy's unit. As it turns out my mother in law is staying in C618 and we are in C616 and both enjoying our stay! We don't want to go home! I am sending a friend of mine to you and she wants to ask about your units so she'll be calling. I really enjoyed dealing with you so I am happy to recommend any of my friends. - Michelle M. Vernon, Canada

Sept 2007-C618 -Kathy, we had a great time in Maui for the short time we were There. We enjoyed your condo and your paintings on the walls. It has been hustle, bustle since we have gotten back. I finally had a few seconds to sit down and write you about our trip; by the way we went on the dinner cruise with Tony Smith and got our picture taken with him before we went on the cruise. He is a great human being. I hope to get to Maui some time next year for a little more time. Thanks again for letting us stay at your condo. – Ken and Dianne - Phoenix, AZ

May 2007-C618-Aloha, It's hard to believe that we've been back from our trip to Maui for a little over a week now. We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had. Thank you so much for the wonderful basket of treats that you sent us. We have never tasted pineapple so good. The condo had all the comforts of home. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai every morning overlooking the ocean, and the evenings were just beautiful. We were very impressed at how well maintained the grounds were. It was a real treat to just walk down the driveway to the beach. Kathy, thank you so much for allowing us to check out later in the day. You have no idea how that eased things up at our end. We had so many wonderful experiences during our stay. Some of the highlights were the beautiful beaches, The Feast at Lele (on my birthday), a secretly planned massage and facial by Christian, shopping at Lahaina, watching the surfers at Ho'okipa. We ate some wonderful food. To name a few, Mama's Fish House was outstanding, the local fare at Hana Hou cafe, Fish Tacos at Alexanders, and of course Shave Ice. I could go on and on, but I'd have to write a novel. Needless to say, we had a wonderful trip and we will be back. Mahalo from the both of us for your part in making this an experience we will always remember. Sincerely, Diane and Phil - Nashua, NH

Jan 2007-Kamaole Sands-Kathy, I should have written sooner, but I am catching up at work....We had an impossible-to-describe wonderful time in Maui!!! What a paradise! The weather was perfect every day. We loved everything. We never go the same place twice (cuz there's just so much wonderful to see in this world), but we are already planning our next trip. We loved the condo, and felt that the price was excellent! We also loved that location, and after seeing the whole island , would return there again, without a doubt. We really liked the atmosphere, beaches, lack of high-rises, etc. I also really appreciated all the info you sent about the area - I had done quite a bit of "research " myself, but your info was a delightful extra - for example - finding "Little Beach" thru that small gate in that wall was like a miracle I will not soon forget. I have since dreamed again about the beauty of that beach- that was certainly a very special find. I thank you for that one!! Anyway, we just really could not have asked for more - we spent our days in a perfect combo of activities, and just beaching! We saw Hana, Upcountry,Lahaina, and at least 15 different beaches. We visited w/ many different people, which my family enjoyed. We did an all day whale cruise and snorkeled at Molokini and Lanai. Our daughters got to swim w/ the sea turtles and see lots of whales. We also saw lots of surfers, gorgeous waves, beaches beyond compare, sunsets, and the aquarium. All told, we did about half of what we had planned, so we'll just have to go back! Once we were there, we quickly realized, that we had to slow down, and just look, and b-r-e-a-t-h-e- too! I cannot thank you enough for it all. Seems like I happened upon you and our lovely little condo in a lucky state of grace! Fondly, Corinna – Wausau, WI

Jan 2007-C617-Hi, Kathy: Just a quick note to say that we had an absolutely fabulous time in Maui! The condo worked out great for us. It was a wonderful location, and the condo was clean, neat and had all that we needed. We enjoyed the beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, etc. etc. Nancy kindly let us put our bags in the condo early so that we could get changed and go to the beach, too. Your many suggestions were helpful too, and we followed several of them. If we ever come to Maui again, we would love to return to your condo at Kihei Akahi. Thanks again for everything, Kathy. Bill & Anne – BC Canada

Aloha Kathy: Just a quick email to let you know we returned last night and had a great time at C618. We'd like to do it again next year if the unit is available? Your paintings are lovely and I also loved the Asian touches throughout. Weather was great; just one day of heavy rain, but it was gone by afternoon. Truly enjoyed watching the sun come up with a cup of tea and then go into the ocean at sunset. You really do have the best views. Brought my binoculars and saw a few water spouts and a couple of fins, but no breaching. Maybe next time! Again, thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home away from home, it was wonderful. Mahalo Maureen and Larry L. - Delta, BC.

Aloha Kathy! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo...very nicely decorated and a wonderful location:) We had a great time in Maui and will definitely be back again someday. We kept very busy seeing many places and spending the last few days snorkeling a lot and enjoying the vacation. I will definitely recommend your place to anyone I know. We signed your book and gave a few recommendations. I'm missing it already! Mahalo, Sara S. - Sioux Falls, SD

Aloha Kathy, We arrived home safely on March 7th after a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. Thank you so much for the rental of your condo. We used the beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, etc. Everything was so handy. I wish we could have spent the last two days there also. I left a vase of Hawaiian flowers on the dining room table. We had bought them along the road on our way to Hanna and enjoyed them for our remaining time at the condo. I left a note for them to be enjoyed. The weather was perfect the whole 10 days we were in Hawaii. Went snorkeling and whale watching and bumming everyday. The high speed Catamaran we went out on one day was wet and wild. I made the mistake of sitting in the front and the misty waves were ok but I didn't like seeing a 12 foot wave coming at me as we were coming down from a 6 foot wave. Death grip on the seat probably kept me from being washed out to sea. Everyone in the front was wet from head to toe. Ate at Roy's in Kihei, which was excellent. Dessert to die for. Again thank you so much for the condo. I will recommend it to anyone coming your way.Carolyn and Bob - St. John, IN

Hi Kathy, Happy New Year 2003. We enjoyed your place very much and would like to come back one day. I am a teacher and my time is set for the school holidays only. Those are usually the busiest times everywhere and we have to book our tickets well in advance. I will let you know if we are going to come back to Maui and when, as I would like to rent your place again. Your place is very comfortable, nicely appointed, peaceful and homey. There is everything one needs. I also like the location, the views and the birds singing in the morning. So lets keep in touch for future stay. Would you be interested in renting your place to some of my friends? There is always someone looking for accommodation in Maui. Please let me know if I can pass your number on. MahaloIvona S. - British Columbia, Canada

Well we finally got home yesterday We had a great time in Maui and the condo was perfect for our purposes, close to everything, and very affordable. I loved the view and watching the birds every morning. I got a good photo of the sunrise coming over Haleakala from the porch perhaps I can e-mail it to you and you can show it off. Anyhow, thank you for everything. We appreciate your hospitality, the welcome basket and your condo unit. Let me know if we checked out okay. Thanks for everything. John H. - Rockville, MD

Aloha, The tropical island is very beautiful. This is my 3rd visit. A few things to do that are a must. Travel to wine country, it's a lovely journey and venture out on a helicopter ride. Explore the Beauties. In addition, thank you for sharing your condo. It had a homey feeling. Jodie - Seattle, WA

Kathy, Our return trip here was even better than the first. Beautiful weather, golfing, great beaches and sunsets. We had a fabulous time and relaxing vacation. It was good meeting you. The snorkeling at the south end of the beach Kamole Beach Park II was great. We look forward to staying at your condo on our next trip.Amy and Rick - Chicago, IL

We had a great time here on Maui. We enjoyed the road to Hanna and biking down Haleakala. We found the condo very comfortable and well equipped; in fact the whole complex is brilliant, clean, well-maintained etc. We are so pleased that we choose to stay here! Thanks and Mahalo.

Hi Kathy, I just wanted to write to thank you for such wonderful accommodations in Kihei. You are such a thoughtful and considerate person. There was nothing you hadn't thought of to make our stay more pleasant. The view was beautiful, the condo was homey and the driving incredible. Than you so very much. We will be back, possibly next year, but more probably '06. I have already recommended several others to contact you. I also wanted to commend you once more on your artwork. It's lovely and now that I have seen its inspiration, I can appreciate it even more. Once again thank you.Sandra H. and Chad P. - Pasadena, MD

Aloha Kathy, Tomorrow is our last day. We have been very happy here in Maui and also your condo. Maui is such a beautiful island. Went round the island for an hour in a helicopter, visit to Lahaina, snorkeling cruise, lots of barbecues and meals out and of course the wedding at the Grand Wailea chapel. The wedding was perfect, absolutely beautiful and the reception at the Sea Watch restaurant watching sunset was a dream come true. We didn't get chance to cycle down the volcano, the Hanna road and the Sugar Cane train amongst other things but we will definitely be back in a couple of years. Maybe we could stay at your condo again? Thank you very much for your help for this trip and hope you are well and visiting here yourself soon. Maui really is the most beautiful island in the world. Mahalo.Amanda and Steve - Surrey, UK

November/December 2012 - Unit C618 - Kathy, Aloha! Wow, what a fabulous 'new' kitchen!! We love it. New stove, micro, dishwasher, sink, taps...And a new vanity in the bathroom with great lighting! Once again, we have had a wonderful time in our home away from home!! We thank you! Golfing this trip has been the most reasonable - Pukalani was $66 for 2 and Elle Aire was $65 for 2. We again rented bikes with all gear in Haiku. Drove to top of Haleakala rode down to Kula. Had pizza and beer then went back up and repeated and then rode to Haiku about 30 miles in all! Out of this world! Going through lavender fields etc. Vegetation very lush! Great Aloha Friday gatherings at lower pool. Wonderful walks, swimming, and snorkeling. Restaurants we recommend Five Palms, Cafe au lea, Cafe on the Greens just a few favorites! Once again a wonderful time was had at our home away from home! Merry Christmas! See you in February. Mahalo Kathy - Dianne and Harley, Vancouver.

November 2012 – Unit D204 - Hi Kathy, We got back from Maui last Thursday morning, what a wonderful trip we had. Weather was perfect and the Freeland condo was just lovely. Also thank you so much for the welcoming basket of goodies, I loved it all, especially the pineapple and the Maui potato chips! I have since e mailed Frito Lay for locations to buy the potato chips, especially the onion ones but no luck. I put in Chicago zip codes, Cleveland, We have a daughter who lives there, but no where to find Maui potato chips. I guess only in Hawaii! Once again, thank you so much for all your help in finding the right condo for us. We will always have wonderful memories. My husband just through making up a picture album with all the photos he took, turned out real nice. Dolores M.

Nov 2012 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, Paul and I really enjoyed our stay in Kihei, of course the weather was perfect and the location of the condo was great! We had a minor glitch finding the condo only because we didn’t realize where the highway changed; however once we got our bearings we were good to go for the time we were on the Island. We had a nice time between the beaches and site seeing. Thank you for the basket that was a nice treat after a day of travelling. We only had to call for one issue which was a cracked toilet seat; John responded and replaced it while we were out one afternoon. What a great way to wake up with all of the birds singing in the morning, it is a good way to get up and enjoy the beautiful morning and get the day started. The condo was comfortable and the facility very nice and of course a great location. I would recommend this to friends and would certainly stay again. Thank you for your help with getting everything set up and making our stay easy. Mahalo! Susan

November 2012 - Unit C617. The location is great, directly across the beach from Kam II, 5 minute drive to Wailea, and no more than 15 minutes from all of the Wailea and Makena beaches. The condo is very nice and stocked with everything one needs to cook and stay for a week or more in Kihei. Very nice view from the lanai of the ocean. Great value for the nightly rate. Our only dislike was the futon couch. While is fits the decor nicely, it's not at all comfortable and I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to sleep on. I would love to see it replaced with a comfy sleeper couch or recliner couch.

October/November 2012 - Unit C618 - Thank you again for the use of your beautiful condo! Your renovations are wonderful and as always we love to be surrounded by your artwork! It was great to be able to meet you face-to-face and visit if only briefly. We had a wonderful month here. It just seemed to fly by. Lots of snorkeling, some hiking, horseback riding, polo watching and more. The weather has been beyond fantastic. Very tough to have to go home. Thanks so much also for the gift basket! Mahalo, Paul and Beverly P.

August 2012 - Unit D402 - Marian and Kathy, Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with our recent stay at the Kihei Akahi unit D402. Kathy provided very responsive and professional support during the booking process. The unit itself is clean and very nicely set. Everything that one might want to have on a vacation in Maui was available in the unit and I was so impressed by the well equipped kitchen. The location is the best! The beach and a full range of restaurants are all within short walk or drive from the resort. The office staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back! All the Best, Adva and family

June 2012- Unit D204 - Just got home yesterday from this beautiful home away from home. Looking at the pictures makes me wish I was back. The condo was incredible - the only place that I have ever stayed where I felt that everything was clean and ready for my use. I felt like it was my home while I was there-and I am usually funny about sitting on someone else's couch or drinking from the glasses that are there-no worries in this unit. Thank you Kathy for making the reservation process so easy and thank you to the Freelands for letting us stay in your piece of paradise. My first experience with VRBO - and it was more than expected. I will definietly recommend this unit as well as Kathy's to others. Thanks again. - Val and Mike

April 2012 - Unit 204 - Aloha Kathy, Thought that I would e-mail you to let you know how much we enjoyed Unit D204 in Kihei Akahi. We have stayed in other condos at Kihei Akahi, and this one was by far the best. Thank you also for the "Welcome Basket". The weather was perfect the whole time, so all in all, it was a wonderful vacation. Thanks again, and we hope to rent from you again. Regards, Carolyn

March 2012 - Island Surf #408 - Aloha back at you Chuck, We went out with Rascal Sports Fishing & both caught Mahi Mahi's, so they cut some up for us & we BBQ'd it at the condo. (They just gave us enough for a GOOD feeding of it.) As for the condo, no complaints what so ever. The TV in the bedroom didn't work, but we got up so early in the morning to do things. That we both couldn't of stayed up to watch it any way. We would highly recommend your condo to all our friends; it was clean, quiet, great view, so close to everything, affordable. And the welcome basket was a nice touch too. There is nothing I would change about the condo & I can't think of anything to improve on. It's a wonderful home away from home!! We were so happy that you allowed us to have a later check out time. That we were happy to do all the laundry & change the bed. Thanks again so much, you'll be hearing from us on our next visit. Sylvia & Sharon

March 2012 - Unit C617 - We are thoroughly enjoying our stay here in Maui. The condo is beautiful. Thanks so much for the delicious gift basket. I hate to say it but it time to start thinking about going home. Thank you very much for the late check out. We will ensure that everything is taken care of.  You always gave us prompt responses whenever we had any questions or concerns. We would most definitely refer you to friends and family. We sure hope to visit Maui again and would not hesitate to contact you. Thanks so much, Bob

March 2012 - Unit D204 - Just wanted to say the place looks great and can't wait to see the island. Oh, and thanks for the gift basket. Much appreciated. Just wanted to thank you again for setting us up with such a wonderful place, and to the Freelands who's condo turned out beautiful. As a tradesman myself I noticed the high quality of workmanship done on their place and it's fantastic. We had a wonderful time there, kids just loved it . But it's back to reality now and we look forward to returning in the near future. Please pass this on to the Freelands for us. Until next time, Mahalo and Aloha Heather, Jason and Family.

February 2012 – Unit C618 - Kathy, We just got back from your lovely condo yesterday. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the gift basket--it was very thoughtful and I LOVE pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing your home. We hadn't been to Maui before but we are in love with it. We did so many fun things (well, hiking and going to the beach, but that's what we like) while we were there. Your condo was so centrally located and well-equipped... as soon as we thought "I wonder if there is a...?" we would look and there it would be. Also, the convenience of such a delightful beach right across the street was just wonderful.   Before the end of our second day we were planning our next trip. But as I looked through your guest book a fear stole over me... you typically have tenants for the whole month of February! And indeed, I've just checked your calendar on Mauivision and the whole month of February 2013 is booked! :(  However, I see that your company also manages C617 next door. Is it available?  Regards, Kelly

November 2012 - Unit C312 – We just returned from viewing C312 and OMG - it is gorgeous!!!! The cleaning ladies were there and we had a great chat with them. And it looked like they were doing a very thorough job. They said it is one of the nicest units and we can certainly see why. The renos you have done are wonderful - love the big granite counter, large new kitchen, tile work, furnishings that are very comfortable, beautiful bathroom, the bed looks so comfy and just everything you have done is very tasteful and lovingly thought of.

WE were in Bldg D for most of  our vacation but it is really nice here in Bldg C as well.  Different views but also very nicely appointed and very clean and lovely.  Take Care  Happy New Year as well.  Aloha.  Mahalo again for the lovely basket.  Sincerely Dave & Brenda D.

December 2011 - Unit C313 - Hi Kathy, Thanks for letting the cleaning crew give us permission to drop our bags off. That was very helpful and they were such nice people. The flowers that were waiting for us are beautiful. What a nice gesture. The unit is beautiful and so comfortable, we really feel at home here. We will definitely be coming back!  We don't need an extended checkout time as we have to be at the airport by about 10 a.m. Once again thanks for thinking of that.  Thanks for the great hospitality, Ron and Heather

October 2011 – Unit D402 - Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for a wonderful stay again in Maui in Kihei Akahi D402. (October 29 - November 10).  We had a really nice time and got to see some spinner dolphins!  Thank you for the fruit basket and the wonderful flowers that greeted us in the condo.  We had a great flight there and back and really did not want to leave.  We have to figure out to stay for 4 weeks!!  That should do it!!  Please forward our thanks to the Harris's.  Also, we thanked Janice 'We Mop It" cleaners (I think that is what they are called) as some lights did not have bulbs and she came within 15 minutes to drop some off.  Very good service. We hope you found the condo in excellent condition as we did the laundry, dishes, garbage, recycle before we left. My Mom and I treat it like home.  Again, thank you for the stay; I am already missing the beautiful aromas of the flowers, the sound of the ocean and the wake-up call of the birds!!  Kindest regards, Janice M. and Nancy J.

Oct 2011 – Unit C619 - Aloha Kathy, I am so sorry for getting back to you late, it's been crazy over here. My husband and I just and are in the works of unpacking while starting our new jobs. We wish we were still in Maui! Anyways, mahalo for your hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay in C619, it's a beautiful place. You were very right, it was so nice to have two bathrooms! Once we got back from snorkeling each day there was no rock, paper, scissors for who gets the shower first! :) We also really appreciated your 'Welcome to Maui' newsletter. We loved the Secret Beach (see attached photos), Cafe Des Amis (delicious!), and the Ahihi-Kinau Preserve (swimming in a fish bowl!). We loved how thorough it was; when we took extra long beach breaks we were able to just refer to it (as far as Ka'anapali!) and find a good place for a late dinner. It really was a great and valuable resource, again, thank you. I'm sure you will appreciate this as you embrace social marketing such as YouTube, but I love to write reviews. I have a Yelp account and am trying to start a tripadvisor acct, too. There are a few mentions of a "Kathy" on tripadvisor for Kihei Akahi, with no contact info. I would also like to add my recommendation for those looking for a place to stay in Kihei. May I direct my review to an email address or website for you? If that's alright, please let me know what contact information you would like left in my review. I am going to try to get those reviews out in the next week! :) Mahalo, Pia

August 2011 - Unit C312 - I couldn't have been happier to be the first guests in this incredible property! I have been going to Maui twice a year on average for the last 5 years, and this is the best, most comfortable property I have ever stayed at in all my stays, and what better than in central Kihei! My girlfriend and I went for a nice getaway, but this property would work just as well for up to 4 people with the queen sized pull out couch! The photos don't do the actual property justice - the kitchen is very spacious and the granite counters very spacious. The bathroom and 2-person tiled shower is fantastic, and the lanai and patio furniture makes the best place to enjoy some Kona coffee and coconut pancakes while overlooking the ocean first thing in the morning! The TV and IPOD dock radio are great to listen to your favorite music, or catch up on a favourite show with a nice glass of wine at night as you unwind in preparation for the next days events. The beach chairs and towels, cooler and boogie board were great additions and were very handy when you make the short walk across the street to the beach! Kathy, their property manager, is incredible and readily available for anything that you may need from her. Neal and Joe and INCREDIBLE owners and also always available! I have nothing but good things to say about them and their property and I highly recommend it! I am referring all my friends and family here and I myself will certainly be a return guest! A beautiful location, a beautiful property, and incredible owners - I definitely recommend it! - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

June 2011 - Unit C618 - My husband, daughter and I had an absolutely awesome time in Kathy’s condo. We were there about the same time four years ago and, likewise, had an awesome time. We stayed at the condo both times and our experience was absolutely wonderful. Everything was fully stocked and we never really had to go out to buy anything because everything was already there, including coffee. The beach was 5 minutes away and we really took advantage of it. One thing that Kathy did was to provide a printout of advice as well as places to visit and dine out. Very helpful. Would I go back? Absolutely!!! - Genia J.

May 2011 - Unit C619 - We recently stayed in Unit C619 for ten days at the end of May and I had to write you a customer satisfaction letter because our vacation was even better than we imagined!  It was my first trip to Maui, and being a single mother of two teenagers, it can be pretty scary to book a trip on the VRBO. But you were terrific because you called me back , instead of emailing me and hearing your voice really reassured me. Then when you sent detailed pictures of the condo and provided lots of information about the area with so many helpful tips and suggestions that you gave me every confidence that we would get what we were paying for. In the end, we got much more, because the condo was so clean and it was fully equipped and when we had trouble with our internet, the person that takes care of the condo in Maui called right back and helped me fix it over the phone. The location of the condo Kihei Akahi is perfect, right across the street from Kamaole Beach 2 and within walking distance to Kamaole 1 and Kamaole 3, we were in the best part of Maui with no rain!!  Thank you very much Kathy!  I will be booking a trip again someday with you! - Sincerely, Shelly-Vancouver BC

February 2011 - Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy, We are enjoying our stay very much in your lovely condo, it is beautiful and stocked with everything we could ever think of needing - especially love the views!  Sadly, the time is getting close to when we have to leave. I can't find the email we got from you if there's anything else we need to do other than start the dishwasher, the sheets in the washer and garbage out... Your art is lovely, is there somewhere on Maui it's displayed?  Also, I'm going to check my work calendar for next Feb when we get home but if you could pencil us in to stay in C618 around the same time for 2 - 3 weeks?   Mahalo!  Ray and Sharon

February 2011 - Ka'anapali Shores #851 - Kathy, we made a trip to Ka’anapali Shores in Maui, Hawaii and had a fabulous week!  I wanted to get back to you and let you know what a wonderful time we had and thank you for all your help.  Please tell Maya Dolena thank you and let her know that we appreciate everything and the use of her condo for the week.  It was fabulous. Everything was perfect in the condo and I would highly recommend the Ka'anapali Shores to anyone going to Maui so thank you so much.  I will keep your information for when we travel back to Hawaii. - Nancy and Joe

She is continually updating it.The location,the interior decorating,the amenities are all first class. We think of it as our home away from home. - Harley and Dianne S. Canada

January 2011 - Unit C618 - My daughter, my sister and I had a great girls' getaway at Kathy's condo C618 for 11 days in January. The location was perfect, right across from the beach, with views from our 6th floor lanai of both the sunrise over Haleakala and the sunset over the ocean! The condo is well-maintained and Kathy has provided all the comforts of home, including one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. I think this is one of the best values in Kihei and we will definitely return. - Pat P. Canada

October 2010 - Unit C616 - Kathy - Thank you for the lovely basket, it was delicious and a nice welcome. We are quite comfortable and feel right at home in this unit. It is well equipped as you promised. We were wondering if there might be an opportunity for us to get a peak at your condo while we are here as we will be back again next year and looking to rent a place again. Thanks again. - Laurie and Chip

August 2010 – Unit C618 - We love the condo! We are just thrilled that it was way more than we expected and we can relax inside or outside of our "home away from home". :) A ginornmous MAHALO! I couldn't get a flight home with everyone else. :( and :) I managed to get a one way back on the 31st for $150 - score! Do you have vacancy for one more night? If not...no worries. Just thought it was worth asking. Thanks again Kathy! Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Denise

June 2010 – Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy! Joan and I have loved our stay in Maui and we just have loved staying in your home.

I just wanted to tell you I just love your place and I wish there was no one coming in after us. I love what you have done here and all of your decorations and your artwork is fabulous. Awesome, awesome, awesome and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I just wanted to really thank you, thank you, thank you! Mahalo – Trish R. – Alamo, CA

May 2010 – Unit C618 - Aloha Kathy! This vacataion has been everything we may have expected and much more!! Maui is paradise! And staying in your home gave us all the conveniences of home with a comfortable, convenient and just wonderful place to live for 2 weeks! I love the quiet, I even like the “wake-up birds” every morning! The land views BEACH, Mountains, flowers all are spectacular! Mike’s hope was to fish and fish! Had a mother and baby whale next to the boat and so what a memorable video that is! Also shore fishing he caught an octopus! We were told that is rare. The fish are so incredibly beautiful! Something way different from Lake Superior. Wailea shops something fun for everyone here. Thanks again! Pam and Mike A. Dulth MN.

April 2010 – Unit C618 – Thank you Kathy for the “welcome gift.” We enjoyed it. Your artwork is lovely. I called Karen Camara to arrange for a lesson. Did a painting at Kamaole Beach II.

March 2010 – Unit C616 - Hi Kathy, we are flying out late tomorrow. Is it possible to have a later check out? Whale season is at its peak. We are sitting on the lanai watching Kayakers observe a pod of whales right off shore. We went whale watching yesterday and it was amazing, the best 40 dollars spent. I will for sure be recommending this condo. It has everything you need and high end. Thanks Shawn - CA

July 09-Unit C618-Kathy, Thank you so much for sharing your Maui condo with us. We have so enjoyed our time here. Lots of beach time with a few drives. We toured Makawao and Lahaina, the swap meet on Saturday in Kahalui (great bargains and selections), and a trip to the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (726 S. Kihei Road). That was lots of fun and informative. We checked out Big Beach (be careful but fun), Makena, and any others. Our favorite snorkel spot remains Ahihi Kinau Reserve past the love. Great spot. Turtles, a moray eel, a zebra eel, lots of tang and marvelous fish. We are looking forward to our next trip. Thank you! Jeff and Donna. PS We love your artwork.

June 09-Unit C618-Aloha Kathy! It is departure day and we leave with full hearts! Your home here is both beautiful and peaceful, and we loved being here. We were lucky to be here for the Maui Film Festival and attended 3 evenings. What fun! The people at Maui Dive Co. got s going with snorkeling. We took their snorkeling trip to Molokini and “Turtle Town” enjoyed it thoroughly and then rented the snorkeling gear with the ½ wet suit. We snorkeled every day. The water is so beautiful. Your recommendations for everything were right on and so helpful. Thank you for all the care and consideration you give to your guests comfort and happiness. Sherry

June 09-Unit C618-Aloha Kathy, Your lovely place was more than I imagined. Your generosity and kindness is so appreciated. You will be hearing from me for future visits. I greatly appreciated your write up of places to go and things to do. Every day was a luscious treat. My visit was too short but filled with memories for a lifetime. Cindy

June 2009 - C618 -Hi Kathy, Julie & I had a great time staying at your condo. This was our 30th wedding anniversary and what a way to spend it. The fruit basket was yummy. This was our first time in Maui and it was great. We did the Pearl Harbor tour, horse back riding, fishing for marlins, road to road to Hana, snorkeling, parasailing, swimming & helicopter ride to Molokini. We had such a great time for the 2 weeks we stayed at your place. The people were so friendly there and what a switch. We will be doing this again and I want to thank you very much for having us stay at your condo. The best thing was to be able to go down stairs walk across the street and jump into to the ocean, which was great. Thank you very much Scott & Julie

April 2009 – C618 - April 2009 – C618 - Hi Kathy and Linda, Just wanted to thank you again for everything, we had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect we really appreciated having access to chairs and the snorkel gear. We had a wonderful holiday. Very relaxing. Your snorkel recommendations were awesome. We liked swimming with the turtles right here at Kamaole II the best. It was wonderful to watch the whales from the lanai. We will be back to Maui hopefully before too long, we just have to get through the winter Olympics and then we can think about our next holiday. All the best Nancy and Julia

It was an unexpected surprise...thank you so much. We'll definately be in touch with you in the future and may be looking at staying a month or so.

March 2009 - C618 and C309 – Hi Kathy! Just wanted to let you know that everyone had a fantastic time in Maui. My family really enjoyed your condo, and we all appreciated the wonderful gift baskets that you had delivered - thanks so much! It's been awhile since I've seen your unit (C618) and the updates that you've made are great! I don't know the next time we'll have a chance to visit again (we're actually moving out of CA in a few months), but when we return to Maui, we will definitely contact you again. Have a great day, Maiteeny PS. We took your advice on buying some local artwork. I bought a few items at the Haleakala Trading Co and we also bought some beautiful art glass from a gallery in the shops at Wailea! Maiteeny

March 09 - C617 - Hi Kathy and Linda, Tara and I have kept meaning to email you to say the condo and your service was awesome.

March 09 – Unit C618 - Kathy, Susan and I arrived home today, after a wonderful holiday in maui. thank you for providing us with a great place to stay.

We look forward to returning to Maui again next year (not soon enough!) Mahalo - Don and Susan

Feb 2009 - D402 - Hello Linda and Kathy, Thank you, Linda, for your phone message this morning- we were at the Maui Ocean Centre, very interesting! Once in a while circumstances work out better than expected and this trip have been one of those life circumstances. The condo was even nicer and better equipped than expected, the grounds and location of the Kihei Akahi were ideal and lovely, and of course Maui is a most beautiful place- a real paradise. Please extend our thanks to the Harris' for the gorgeous roses for Valentine's Day and the yummy fruit basket from Maui Vision for our anniversary! These extras were very surprising to my family although I had been telling them all along of how helpful and efficient you were from our whole interactions starting last April. Thank you thank you for all you've done for this wonderful Maui vacation! Kim, Phil J. and family

December 2008 – C618 - Aloha Kathy, As usual, it is great to be back here, it was like walking into a 'home away from home. The beer in the fridge was the best thing. The day's travels all forgotten, sitting on the lanai, drinking my 'Longboards,' eating fresh Maui pineapple. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, such a life. Thank you for the fruit basket, it is always appreciated & well used. Yummy coffee & cookies. My oldest son & his wife are here for their 1st time & they also think that they are in Paradise. Hope that you are well, again, thank you for the fruit basket & the beer. I forgot to mention that I love the new colors, they look terrific. The side by side fridge with the ice dispenser is also invaluable. There was quite a storm a few days ago, thankfully the power didn't go out. Hope that you had some good weather on your holiday – Aloha Gaye.

September 2008 – C618 - Dear Kathy, It has been a long time from my summer vacation. In Japan, it became colder nowadays. I really love snow boarding, so I'm waiting for snow...I remember the days in Maui. It was very nice. I enjoyed everything! I stayed comfortably thanks to your condo. Besides, you provided that cheaper than the regular price. As my gratitude, I will send you this Japanese wash clothes. Which is yu-zen dying. These are very convenient and functional. In Maui I really enjoyed the life. First, I went to Krispy Kreme (there are some shops too in Japan. It appeared a few years ago) and Safeway to buy things we need in Maui life but before that, Hawaiian Air lost our baggage. Our 2 suitcases went to Hawaii. We didn't like to wait so we had our baggage delivered to our condo. We went to the beaches everyday. Some of the days sharks appeared. We couldn't enter the sea for more than 4 hours. I sometimes surfed (but little waves in the summer), sometimes we went shopping at the Farmer's Market and swap meet. This year, we challenged driving to Hana. It's a little far from Kihei, but it was really wonderful and scenic way. We got avocados!!! It was wild one. There was an avocado tree and my friend found it. There was some tiny trouble but there were all nice memories! Thanks a lot xxx - Mimi.

Sept 08 – C618 - We are back safely from our trip to Maui and Oahu and just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying in C618 at the Kihei Akahi! It's a nice quiet place to kick back, relax and listen to the sounds of the birds and the ocean. We explored the island thoroughly and got some great snorkeling in at the Ahihi Kinau Preserve. We did the Highway to Hana and the sunrise on Haleakala. Yes, we were busy! We came back to cold temperatures and some rain. Wish we were back on Maui. Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise. - Ilka and Doug M.

July 2008 – C618 - Hi Kathy and Linda, We are just leaving Maui today. Thank-you for hosting us at your lovely condo. We had a great time. We especially appreciated the beach equipment and internet access and great location. Your paintings were fantastic. Thanks again and we would love to stay here again on our next stay in Maui. Thanks, Sujan, Paula, and Alyssa

May 2008 – C618 – This was our first time visiting Maui, and we loved it! The weather was great, the temperature was perfect and the beaches were beautiful. We had lots that we wanted to do, and we managed to squeeze it all in during the week that we were here. It was so nice to be able to come back to the condo after our various activities and have a place of our own to relax and cook a meal. We spent a lot of time on the balcony admiring the view. The condo was great and very well stocked; we especially appreciated the beach chairs, snorkels, boogie boards, and the cooler. Thanks for the great place Kathy. – Karin and Chris

May 2008 - D402 - I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Kihei Akahi condo D402. It was wonderful, absolutely perfect for my daughter and I. Also, thank you very much for having fresh flowers in the unit and the basket of goodies that was delivered to our door upon arrival, those little touches do have a way of making a person feel special. As always our stay in Maui was fantastic and I can't wait for the day I become a permanent resident rather than just a visitor. Jade was lucky enough to meet and enjoy the company of another Canadian teenager her age during our stay (his family was also staying at the Kihei) so for her this trip was even more fun than she expected. Thank you for everything and we look forward to speaking with you real soon when we book our next trip to the Island. With warm regards, Leanne and Jade

May 2008 - D402 - Aloha Linda, Well we actually made the decision to just stay another night, May 22, and skip the headache of standing by for the flights tonight. I will leave a check for $332.03 on the counter made out to Marianne Harris. We will be leaving the the condo at 6ish pm on Friday, May 23rd, so if you'd like to tell Nancy, that would be great. We'll try to take all that we brought with us this time so she doesn't have to store our belongings again...ha-ha. Thanks for the kind words and you are a delight to deal with as well. As you know, there are many choices for condos on the island. We love Kihei Akahi D-402, but it's your service that makes our stay convenient and seamless. We hope to return in the fall so you should be hearing from us in the near future. Thanks again! Brett

 


 

April 2008-C618 - Kathy, We had a wonderful time in Maui and in your beautiful home. The basket was sure a nice surprise and treat. This is the Ocean Maui Center Xavier sure had fun there! Again that basket was great. The coffee was an eye opener at 5am the next morning when Xavier woke. Thanks again – Laurie Ann – Saskatoon Canada

March 2008 D402 - Dear Kathy and Linda With apologies for taking so long.... We hope you had a Happy Easter, ours was great. It has just taken so long to get things back to normal Mostly we want to thank you for such a lovely condo in Kehei. We were very pleasantly surprised, especially after a less than ideal one in Honolulu. I am hoping that you will pass on our thanks to the owners. We were very taken with the Asian decor --- such a departure from the usual. The fruit and goodies basket was a wonderful welcome surprise !! Thank you both, it was very generous and kind, and we greatly appreciated it. All in all we had a superlative Hawaiian vacation, with a few highlights...not the least was the Maui part. As always the whale watching is a favourite of ours. The lanai gave us a great view . We kept our binoculars at the ready all day and were not disappointed with the viewing. This is also the first time we have ventured up Haleakala and WOW !!! We were also lucky enough to get to the Pan Pacific Soccer Championship games, much to the envy of Ann's older brothers (and as a bonus we got to see David Beckham play!) It is now back to reality...it snowed a little this morning, now the sun is out, but so is the wind. Next week promises to be warmer or should I say less cold. The dog was very glad to have us home and we have waded through the pile of mail etc. The tans are fading ( I reckon the fading starts as soon as you step on the plane ) Hopefully it will not be 9 years before the next time. Again , thank you for the place, the treats and your help... Best regards Diane and Ann

March 2008-C214 -Dear Twyla, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Maui and staying in your Condo. We had a wonderful time and it was everything that we had hoped for. We grew to really enjoy and prefer the location on the island that you chose to purchase your condo in. It felt more like a neighborhood than a highly commercialized area, yet it was easily driveable to other locations. We really enjoyed the extras that having a condo provided us with over having a hotel room. We really enjoyed Maui and all of the recreational activities available. We also attended church there on Easter Sunday at Hope Chapel. Thanks again. It was a pleasure getting to know (email) you. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We may not have gone on this vacation if it hadn't been for talking to Tom and Bonnie about their vacation in your condo. We will be returning to Maui. Thanks again, Rose and Dean A.

Feb 2008-D402 - Aloha Kathy! Well, we're down to a few more days and wanted to confirm what was expected as far as sheets, towels, cleaning, etc. It was a nice visit, though the weather was a bit too cloudy and rainy for us. Fortunately, the sun showed up yesterday and it looks like our last days here will be nice! We look forward to renting a condo from you in the future! You are great! Brigitte - AK

Feb 2008 – C616 - Aloha Kathy, Just back from a wonderful month in Maui. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful. Couldn't believe the whales this year, they were exciting to watch from the lanai. I was wondering what you have available for January 30/09 to February 28/09? We stayed in Don Albers place and it worked out fine. As you know we usually stay at your place, but I know it is booked at these times. Would Don's place be available for next year? Please let me know what you have as soon as possible, as I would like to get everything booked; car, air tickets, etc. – Mahalo, Maureen, Canada.

Feb 2008 – C606 Thank you so much! We could have left our camera a number of places that day and we've accepted that it's probably gone. We are just using that as an excuse to revisit all the places so we can take another set of photos! I would have loved to send you some pictures of us in the condo cooking. One of our favorite days was the hike around Haleakala. Thank you again to the Carvers! We just loved the space and the zen appeal of the bamboo! It was perfect for my yoga practice. It was the perfect change of pace from our hectic lives in New York City. The decor captured the essence of island life and the peaceful escape we were seeking. We especially enjoyed the short walk right down to the beach to watch the whales jump out of the ocean. The views were breathtaking and created the romantic atmosphere we desired. We cooked most evenings in the wonderful kitchen and savored our Hawaiian inspired meals with some wine on the lanai. We are looking for a short term opportunity in mid July. The timing worked out perfect for the hiring for the schools but he might not know for sure which school he will be working at until closer to the beginning of the school year. Therefore we're looking for something for July and August and will then look for something more permanent after Labor Day. If you hear of anything in Kihei that is available please let us know. We really like this area best and thought it was centralized for both of us. We're coming with two suitcases each and that's it! I'm so excited. Mahalo for all your efforts! I appreciate everyone's help in building our future together. It was a time we will never forget. We really enjoyed our stay. I will definitely recommend the place to stay for friends and family! We'll be in touch for sure. – Kelley - NY

Feb 2008-C616 - Aloha Kathy and Linda - Thank you so much for the lovely basket. We were surprised when returning from grocery shopping. If you are in communication with Don I hope you will tell him that we are really enjoying the "sharp" knives he has; must be a chef. My son and I love to cook, so this is great. Weather is better today. Had a beautiful sunset last night. Just starting to unwind and we are both looking forward to a very relaxing holiday. Thanks again Linda and Kathy. Mahalo Maureen - Canada

Jan 2008-D402- Aloha Kathy and Linda! Mahalo for the lovely welcome basket! You are so nice! We also had fresh flowers on the table and the condo is perfect! The weather is not cooperating today but that was okay since it's been a travel day. Lots of wind, clouds, some rain and sun. Tomorrow is supposed to be partly cloudy but if we have to stay inside, what a nice place to be! Thank you so much for your assistance in the past several months! You are great! We know who to call in the future! - Brigitte, James, Gabrielle and Theresa - Alaska

Jan 2008-C618 and C616 - Aloha Linda, thank you for your phone message yesterday. I will recommend your company for anyone coming to Maui and looking for a condo. We will be back next year as well and will consider staying in Kathy's unit. As it turns out my mother in law is staying in C618 and we are in C616 and both enjoying our stay! We don't want to go home! I am sending a friend of mine to you and she wants to ask about your units so she'll be calling.

Sept 2007-C618 -Kathy, we had a great time in Maui for the short time we were There. We enjoyed your condo and your paintings on the walls. It has been hustle, bustle since we have gotten back. I finally had a few seconds to sit down and write you about our trip; by the way we went on the dinner cruise with Tony Smith and got our picture taken with him before we went on the cruise. He is a great human being. I hope to get to Maui some time next year for a little more time. Thanks again for letting us stay at your condo. – Ken and Dianne - Phoenix, AZ

May 2007-C618-Aloha, It's hard to believe that we've been back from our trip to Maui for a little over a week now. We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had. Thank you so much for the wonderful basket of treats that you sent us. We have never tasted pineapple so good. The condo had all the comforts of home. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai every morning overlooking the ocean, and the evenings were just beautiful. We were very impressed at how well maintained the grounds were. It was a real treat to just walk down the driveway to the beach. Kathy, thank you so much for allowing us to check out later in the day. You have no idea how that eased things up at our end. We had so many wonderful experiences during our stay. Some of the highlights were the beautiful beaches, The Feast at Lele (on my birthday), a secretly planned massage and facial by Christian, shopping at Lahaina, watching the surfers at Ho'okipa. We ate some wonderful food. To name a few, Mama's Fish House was outstanding, the local fare at Hana Hou cafe, Fish Tacos at Alexanders, and of course Shave Ice. I could go on and on, but I'd have to write a novel. Needless to say, we had a wonderful trip and we will be back. Mahalo from the both of us for your part in making this an experience we will always remember. Sincerely, Diane and Phil - Nashua, NH

Jan 2007-Kamaole Sands-Kathy, I should have written sooner, but I am catching up at work....We had an impossible-to-describe wonderful time in Maui!!! What a paradise! The weather was perfect every day. We loved everything. We never go the same place twice (cuz there's just so much wonderful to see in this world), but we are already planning our next trip. We loved the condo, and felt that the price was excellent! We also loved that location, and after seeing the whole island , would return there again, without a doubt. We really liked the atmosphere, beaches, lack of high-rises, etc. I also really appreciated all the info you sent about the area - I had done quite a bit of "research " myself, but your info was a delightful extra - for example - finding "Little Beach" thru that small gate in that wall was like a miracle I will not soon forget. I have since dreamed again about the beauty of that beach- that was certainly a very special find. I thank you for that one!! Anyway, we just really could not have asked for more - we spent our days in a perfect combo of activities, and just beaching! We saw Hana, Upcountry,Lahaina, and at least 15 different beaches. We visited w/ many different people, which my family enjoyed. We did an all day whale cruise and snorkeled at Molokini and Lanai. Our daughters got to swim w/ the sea turtles and see lots of whales. We also saw lots of surfers, gorgeous waves, beaches beyond compare, sunsets, and the aquarium. All told, we did about half of what we had planned, so we'll just have to go back! Once we were there, we quickly realized, that we had to slow down, and just look, and b-r-e-a-t-h-e- too! I cannot thank you enough for it all. Seems like I happened upon you and our lovely little condo in a lucky state of grace! Fondly, Corinna – Wausau, WI

Jan 2007-C617-Hi, Kathy: Just a quick note to say that we had an absolutely fabulous time in Maui! The condo worked out great for us. It was a wonderful location, and the condo was clean, neat and had all that we needed. We enjoyed the beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, etc. etc. Nancy kindly let us put our bags in the condo early so that we could get changed and go to the beach, too. Your many suggestions were helpful too, and we followed several of them. If we ever come to Maui again, we would love to return to your condo at Kihei Akahi. Thanks again for everything, Kathy. Bill & Anne – BC Canada

Aloha Kathy: Just a quick email to let you know we returned last night and had a great time at C618. We'd like to do it again next year if the unit is available? Your paintings are lovely and I also loved the Asian touches throughout. Weather was great; just one day of heavy rain, but it was gone by afternoon. Truly enjoyed watching the sun come up with a cup of tea and then go into the ocean at sunset. You really do have the best views. Brought my binoculars and saw a few water spouts and a couple of fins, but no breaching. Maybe next time! Again, thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home away from home, it was wonderful. Mahalo Maureen and Larry L. - Delta, BC.

Aloha Kathy! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo...very nicely decorated and a wonderful location:) We had a great time in Maui and will definitely be back again someday. We kept very busy seeing many places and spending the last few days snorkeling a lot and enjoying the vacation. I will definitely recommend your place to anyone I know. We signed your book and gave a few recommendations. I'm missing it already! Mahalo, Sara S. - Sioux Falls, SD

Aloha Kathy, We arrived home safely on March 7th after a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. Thank you so much for the rental of your condo. We used the beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, etc. Everything was so handy. I wish we could have spent the last two days there also. I left a vase of Hawaiian flowers on the dining room table. We had bought them along the road on our way to Hanna and enjoyed them for our remaining time at the condo. I left a note for them to be enjoyed. The weather was perfect the whole 10 days we were in Hawaii. Went snorkeling and whale watching and bumming everyday. The high speed Catamaran we went out on one day was wet and wild. I made the mistake of sitting in the front and the misty waves were ok but I didn't like seeing a 12 foot wave coming at me as we were coming down from a 6 foot wave. Death grip on the seat probably kept me from being washed out to sea. Everyone in the front was wet from head to toe. Ate at Roy's in Kihei, which was excellent. Dessert to die for. Again thank you so much for the condo. I will recommend it to anyone coming your way.Carolyn and Bob - St. John, IN

Hi Kathy, Happy New Year 2003. We enjoyed your place very much and would like to come back one day. I am a teacher and my time is set for the school holidays only. Those are usually the busiest times everywhere and we have to book our tickets well in advance. I will let you know if we are going to come back to Maui and when, as I would like to rent your place again. Your place is very comfortable, nicely appointed, peaceful and homey. There is everything one needs. I also like the location, the views and the birds singing in the morning. So lets keep in touch for future stay. Would you be interested in renting your place to some of my friends? There is always someone looking for accommodation in Maui. Please let me know if I can pass your number on. MahaloIvona S. - British Columbia, Canada

Well we finally got home yesterday We had a great time in Maui and the condo was perfect for our purposes, close to everything, and very affordable. I loved the view and watching the birds every morning. I got a good photo of the sunrise coming over Haleakala from the porch perhaps I can e-mail it to you and you can show it off. Anyhow, thank you for everything. We appreciate your hospitality, the welcome basket and your condo unit. Let me know if we checked out okay. Thanks for everything. John H. - Rockville, MD

Kathy, Our return trip here was even better than the first. Beautiful weather, golfing, great beaches and sunsets. We had a fabulous time and relaxing vacation. It was good meeting you.

Hi Kathy, I just wanted to write to thank you for such wonderful accommodations in Kihei. You are such a thoughtful and considerate person. There was nothing you hadn't thought of to make our stay more pleasant. The view was beautiful, the condo was homey and the driving incredible. Than you so very much. We will be back, possibly next year, but more probably '06. I have already recommended several others to contact you. I also wanted to commend you once more on your artwork. It's lovely and now that I have seen its inspiration, I can appreciate it even more. Once again thank you.Sandra H. and Chad P. - Pasadena, MD

Aloha Kathy, Tomorrow is our last day. We have been very happy here in Maui and also your condo. Maui is such a beautiful island. Went round the island for an hour in a helicopter, visit to Lahaina, snorkeling cruise, lots of barbecues and meals out and of course the wedding at the Grand Wailea chapel. The wedding was perfect, absolutely beautiful and the reception at the Sea Watch restaurant watching sunset was a dream come true. We didn't get chance to cycle down the volcano, the Hanna road and the Sugar Cane train amongst other things but we will definitely be back in a couple of years. Maybe we could stay at your condo again? Thank you very much for your help for this trip and hope you are well and visiting here yourself soon. Maui really is the most beautiful island in the world. Mahalo.Amanda and Steve - Surrey, UK
