Thank you for assisting us with our Maui vacation!

March 24, 2011

Aloha Teresa,

I want to personally thank you for a wonderful family vacation to Maui!  The sportfishing trip went great (so I hear) - I was at the Grand Wailea spa!  They didn’t catch any big sports fish, but Connor was so pleased with the 5 lb Tuna and we enjoyed it for supper that night.

The day we went snokeling with Trilogy Excursions was a magical day. We saw a pod of dolphins, sea turtles, male humpbacks competing for escort rights, and a mother humpback with her calf who breached the water about six times for us!  We will have to send you a photo share when Orren gets the pictures all done.

The Old Lahaina luau was a wonderful experience and Lynda and I went to the Grand Wailea Spa the day the men went fishing. We had a relaxing hour of soaking in all their baths, a loofah scrub, and an hour massage each. Heaven!

Thank you so much! I am going to pass your information on to my Aunt and Uncle who are thinking of going to Maui later this month.

Mahalo!

Tracy and family

We Loved Kauai Island Private Home Rental!

Teresa found the most wonderful beach front house for our week in Kauai. She made our trip absolutely perfect and we will use her services again for our next vacation.

This charming, oceanfront home is located on one of Kauai’s most beautiful beaches.

We are back home and had a wonderful time in Maui…

May 25, 2009

Kaanapali BeachAloha Teresa;
We are back home and had a wonderful time in Maui... the beach wedding was perfect and all the activities you arranged for us were great. The surfing lessons with the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy and the Old Lahaina Luau you arranged were both wonderful! The Hyatt Regency Maui worked out great and we all enjoyed all it had to offer… the beach, pool, spa, restaurants, etc.

Thanks for all your help setting this up for us. We appreciate it and will be happy to share your name and contact information with others headed to Maui.
Thanks again.
Debbie

Thank you for all of your assistance with our Maui weddingmoon!

humback whale - maui coastlineAloha Teresa -

I was just thinking of you yesterday. You really came through for us last Friday when we were turned around due to the fire on the road while trying to make it to our return flight after the wedding on Maui. We missed getting through to the airport by about 10 cars and the fire was right there by us.

It saved us a tremendous amount of time and stress to fly directly from the small Kapalua Airport to Kahului Airport. Some people on our flight did the long drive and said it was tedious and one lane in parts. We really appreciate your extra effort in putting that all together and changing our flights within an hour. Great job! It really helps to have a “Travel Agent friend on Maui”! [Read more]

Mahalo for Everything! Our Hawaiian Weddingmoon was Perfect!

March 10, 2009

maui palmtreeAloha!

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything! The whole weddingmoon trip to the islands was a blast and everyone had just a fabulous time. The Old Lahaina luau and surfing lesson were so much fun - definitely worth it!
It is hard to nail down our favorite place, as each island was so unique and had so many fun adventures. We really loved Kauai, as we drove around to Hanalei on the North Shore, and we fell in love with that area. We lucked out with the earthquake as we left the Big Island the day prior - whew! Though we did feel it over on Kauai.

I would be more than happy to be a reference for you, as you really made our whole wedding and honeymoon so much easier. It was great to have everything taken care of ahead of time, so all we had to do was show up. I’ll send you a link to our online photos and feel free to use them too. I think that is ok as far as usage rights?

Hope all is well, and thanks again for everything… Hopefully we’ll be back to the islands soon!
Best, Sara

OMG! There was a 40 ton Whale below my kayak today!!

July 30, 2008

maui kayaksOur favorite guests, the humpback whales travel from Alaska to Hawaii every winter to have their young. The Islands of Maui, Lanai, Kahoolawe and Molokai make a bowl with depths of only 300 feet creating a perfect environment for the birthing of the calves.

Our morning began by meeting Kaleo and his 5 yr old son Kahi at Olowalu Beach for a 3 hour guided tour of whale watching. There were 8 of us all together. Kaleo works for Maui Kayaks, he is extremely personable and very well versed in Maui geography, history, culture and sealife. Combined with his knowledge is a true enthusiasm for his job - he really loves coming to “the office” every day! Kaleo is a single Dad so Kahi tags along with him - this is Kahis’ daycare. He is the sweetest little boy, just sits up on the bow of the kayak looking out for the whales.

As we are waiting for Kaleo to get the kayaks ready, the sun was rising and about a dozen turtles were popping their heads up out of the water checking us out on the beach. Meanwhile we could see whales off in the distance breaching and blowing.

The water was as clear as glass, every shade of blue you can imagine and the colors of the coral spectacular.

The whales played cat and mouse with us for the first 2 hours and then they decided to come and visit us. Oh my gosh - they would swim under our kayaks, we could see the white outline of their tails but there wouldn’t be a ripple in the water. Then in a moments notice they would pop out of the water.

Next time you visit Hawaii - you must try kayaking with Maui Kayaks! The whales visit the Hawaiian islands between Thanksgiving and Easter holiday!

Thank you so much for the birthday celebration to Maui!

hotel hana maui spaHi Teresa,

I really can’t thank you enough for scheduling such a great trip to Maui. Marianne hasn’t stopped talking about it; she had such a wonderful time. I enjoyed meeting you and hope you and your family can take us up on staying here for your visit to Disney. Sorry it took so long to say thanks but I haven’t had to many private moments since we’ve been back. Hope you’re enjoying the weather. The eight hours of spa time while we stayed at the Hotel Hana Maui was one fantastic call. Take care and thanks for the lovely gifts. Peace, Ron
