Customer Testimonials

Maui Family Vacation At Last!

Hi Kelli. I wanted to give you a big thank you for your work in arranging our trip to Maui. I got home Saturday night and was sad as was everyone, to leave Maui. We all had an absolutely wonderful trip. It was heart warming to see all members of my family with huge smiles during all the activity and finally relaxing. Honua Kai was great and we had a great ocean view. We all loved the Lanai and the large size allowed all eight of us to be out and comfortable together. Thank you for all of your recommendations, working with our crazy schedules and requests! The welcome gift in our room was such a nice surprise and we enjoyed it all. We are all anxious to go back and will definitely contact you when we have definite dates. Thank you so much again.

Relaxing and Fun Family Vacation w/ Small Children
Kelli was knowledgable, organized, punctual and professional. Kelli helped us determine the best value and location for our family vacation. In the end, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and Kelli made it a breeze to decide on and book a location. There are so many reviews and options for travel these days that I often fall into a pit of over-analyzing and decision paralysis. Kelli saved me from that and we finally went on our relaxing vacation with our three young children. We made the best family memories!
