About Hawaii Hideaways Inc.
Hawaii Hideaways' Staff
With a degree from Yale and a gift for customer relations, Anne Pawsat-Dressler is living her Hawaii dream on a quiet hillside in Maui. She founded Hawaii Hideaways Inc, a service-intensive business based in up-country Maui, to match top-echelon leisure travelers and corporate clients with idyllic private rental homes. Anne’s success comes exceptional customer service skills needed to satisfy a new trend in luxury travel: the demand for personalized attention, unparalleled privacy and a choice of properties that match or surpass the luxury of the guests’ year-round homes.
Prior to her career in arranging for unforgettable vacations, destination weddings and corporate events, Pawsat-Dressler streamlined computer operations at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter’s midtown Manhattan office, produced a documentary film, and saw to the million-dollar auction purchases of clients at Christie’s in London meanwhile extensively traveling the world.
Her travels throughout Europe, Asia and Central America give her insight into the ways of luxury travelers. "Our guests are successful people who have homes just as nice or nicer than those we offer,” said Anne. “They expect exceptional surroundings and treat the rental home as they would their own.” Thanks to Anne's long-standing record for service and client satisfaction, she has been named each year since 2006 a Condé Nast Traveler "Villa Rental Specialist." Originally, she was one of 3 for the United States and the only recommended agent for the state of Hawaii! Congratulations Anne!
