Hawaii Hideaways Inc. Testimonials
We were positively thrilled with the Sand Dollar. The living area was designed the same as our lake home in Manitoba. It was tastefully decorated/furnished, the ambience was lovely, the view was amazing (we could watch the whales from the outdoor dining and sitting areas) and it was spacious enough to easily accomodate the 7 in our party. We had originally booked for 10, but at the last minute, our son and his family weren't able to join us. Our group was all extremely impressed with the accomodation. I was anxious before we arrived as one never knows exactly what to expect when booking online, but I certainly didn't need to be. I also told Autumn and Jennifer that I thought the photos of the Sand Dollar online didn't do it justice - it was much more beautiful than we had expected
We had an unbelievable time at the perfect house on the perfect island and you even provided the perfect weather for us! Thanks to our dumb luck of losing the first property we put a deposit on, you were able to recommend to us golden sands. You did a great job! The house is managed very well!! (We loved the staff and our chef was the best yet) would you believe I lost weight eating 5 course dinners every night? Anyway, thank you for all you did to set it up for us.
The estate we visited during Christmas week on the Big Island was spectacular. Glass door opened to the surf. There was every possible kitchen gadget to prepare meals. The service from Hawaiian Hideways was exceptional. I would rebook again with no reservations and in fact, with the expectation that they would find us another magical house.
Comfortable home that feels like a cozy bungalow situated on the rocky shore of Napili coastline. West facing property with breathtaking sunsets and a steady sound of the ocean. We were here for seven days and never turned on the TV! We loved this property!
Hawaii Hideaways helped us pick out the perfect house and location for our needs. We couldn't have been happier with this home. The pool and views are excellent and the property feels very private.
We had such a great family reunion of 11 with 6 adults and children from ages 2 to 12. It was a pleasure to use the well equipped kitchen and dine with a view of Lanai, Molokai and a cove filled with sea turtles. An exceptional home that we will return to during whale season.
It was the perfect house for 4 households, in total 10 people. Well furnished, excellent access to beach, Princeville and Hanalei. We all loved it! Ages 72 to 2 1/2!
Jennifer and Hans were both very personable, knowledgeable and professional. We appreciated their expertise. The Villa is extremely well equipped. Great location!
Our stay at the Gull Cottage was indescribably fabulous. I don't know where to start. Is it watching sunrise or sunset over Molokai and the Pailolo channel from the expansive lanai? Is it going to sleep with the sound of the waves on the point just below the Cottage? Is it the privacy and quiet of being in a gated community? Is it swimming out into great snorkeling right from the private cove? Is it watching the turtles swim up and down the local shore? Is it just relaxing in the beautifully renovated Cottage? Is it cooking a nice meal in the well appointed kitchen? The Cottage being located in West Maui put is close to so many great things to do, without being close to or on any major roads.
Staying at the Gull Cottage made our stay in Maui the trip of a lifetime and I would highly recommend it. The communication about the logistics was great and Autumn who met us at the door was very helpful also.
If it ever comes up for sale, please let me know!
Again, it was hands down the best place I have ever stayed in Hawaii. I will be back.
Let me begin by thanking you for encouraging the spectacular property which you encouraged from our first conversation. You seemed to have a 6th sense about our families needs with our grandchildren and the dynamics of having 9 young ones 3 of whom have special needs. I wish all could have witnessed the interaction, growth and happiness enjoyed by all of them and us. All children are now swimming at some level and can independently move around (meaning with their special devices and supervision of course) .The beach was perfect in that it allowed somewhat the same freedom of exploration. One of our little guys who doesn’t hear or speak just giggled the entire time he was in the ocean.
The grounds are so beautifully open and kicking a ball, running, blowing bubbles, learning how to throw a Frisbee and taking a hula lesson all happened in this magnificent setting.
One of the outstanding highlights and a stroke of genius was having Kanani Lincoln prepare and serve 3 fabulous meals for all 17 of us. My 7 year old granddaughter greeted him the first 5 minutes we met and she wanted to help. He allowed her to do the prep work on the dessert he planned for the children and also for the adults. He is a treasure and everyone of us agreed this made our overwhelming time over the top! My daughter said her only regret was our one night we went out rather than having Chef Kanani work another of his miracles with food for us.
The home is breathtaking from the moment you enter and each time you round a corner, enter a room or walk in the garden area, it continues to be more overwhelming. The details of design, art work, tile, common area and yes even the retreats away from the group for a little quiet time were all appreciated.
