About Hawaii Hideaways Inc.
Hawaii Hideaways' Staff
With a degree from Yale and a gift for customer relations, Anne Pawsat-Dressler shares Hawaii Hideaways with travelers from around the world. She founded Hawaii Hideaways Inc, a service-intensive business based in Maui, to match travelers and corporate clients with idyllic private rental homes. Anne’s success comes from the exceptional customer service skills needed to satisfy a new trend in travel: the demand for personalized attention and a choice of meritorious properties.
Prior to her career in arranging for unforgettable vacations, Pawsat-Dressler streamlined computer operations at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter’s midtown Manhattan office, produced a documentary film, and saw to auction purchases of clients at Christie’s in London, meanwhile taking advantage of the freedom to travel abroad.
Her travels throughout Europe, Asia and Central America give her insight into the ways of travelers. "Our guests are primarily interested in homes recommended for their unique character or unique location,” said Anne. “A Hawaii located inventory does make any expectation for exceptional surroundings much easier and our guests 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!
Anne is currently on pregnancy leave, congratulations Anne! Anne's departure from everyday operations has resulted in the affiliation of Hawaii Hideaways and LeisureLink, to join memorable Hawaii accommodations and local expertise with streamlined inventory access and online booking. The office is now virtual, all primary staff is located full or part-time in Hawaii.
