This document, our email trail & information on our website fully represent our accommodation and the terms and expectations of the rental. Payment by the GUEST and acceptance of such by the OWNER/MANAGER shows both parties agree to all the terms and conditions here-in.
Our top of the line Studio, 1 or 2 Bedroom, 1 or 2 Bath Ekahi condos offer ocean, mountain and/or garden views. They are a 2 to 6 minute stroll through our tropical grounds to Ekahi’s ocean front pool and gated entrance to Keawakapu Beach. The condos are all exceptionally well maintained and managed by dedicated owners. Most are completely remodeled and continuously updated and redecorated. You’ll find everything you’ll need for a relaxing stay.
A local contact is available for each condo. Please reach out to this person for any questions that may arise during your stay. These women have been with us or the owner for years, know the condos well and are available 24/7/365 should an emergency arise. They are also available during business hours to help with non emergency questions. Their contact info is provided in your arrival packet. They can help with most anything from advice on where to find things, to help with internet connections, extra cleaning, repair issues and more. If you should get locked out – check the back of the screen door for your contact’s phone number.

The State of Hawaii requires us to charge and collect two taxes: General Exercise Tax (GET) and Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT). These are the same taxes hotels and other lodging pass through as well. Currently taxes total 13.4167% (TAT = 9.25% and GET = 4.167%). Beginning on January 1, 2018 the TAT will increase to 10.25% thus raising the overall tax to 14.4167%.

For cancellations within 60 days of arrival. the guest is responsible for all costs unless the time is re-rented. Pro-rata Refunds (except the cancellation fee) will be made for re-rented dates. For Holiday & Monthly Bookings use 90 days, not 60.

We make our Maui Home available to others on a limited basis when we are not using it ourselves. It is not a hotel room. We believe you will appreciate & respect the difference. The condo is well appointed & maintained. We expect our guests will help maintain it in that manner. For stays of 12-14 nights or more we provide a complimentary mid stay clean. For those wishing a more hotel-like experience, our housekeeping staff is available for additional cleans for a nominal fee. We do reserve the right to bill if extra time is needed for cleaning due to extremely heavy use. Treat our place as you hope a guest would treat your home and our expectations will agree. If you truly don’t wish to lift a finger, please consider a hotel.

You are accepting and assuming all risks involved in or related to the use of BBQ, kitchen, bath, and all common areas as well as the pools, beach and ocean.

- Our goal is to provide a beautiful, relaxing and fully equipped home for you to enjoy your stay in this tropical paradise as well as resources to help you “Live like a Local” should that be your desire.
- The climate requires you keep food put away if you don’t want to be bothered by pesky creatures. We provide storage containers to make this easy.
- Showers and water activities mean lots of towels & linens will be used. We provide more than you will need but ask you to use the Washer/Dryer for the dirty items when you take out fresh ones. Don’t wait til your last day.
- Keeping sand outside will make you more comfortable inside. There are outdoor showers near the beach and pool for people & your stuff and hoses for rinsing off equipment near the condo. Sand will damage the carpeting too so we do provide a broom and vacuum just in case.
- Your comfort is important to us. Air Conditioning is provided for your use but we request you help our island in its quest to maintain sustainability and turn off the AC when leaving the unit. Don’t run AC with windows open or set it lower than 72 degrees Farenheit. We love ceiling fans and have them everywhere in the condo and even now in our mainland home.
- Maui’s gods will frown and often cause flooding if anything other than toilet tissue is flushed down the toilet.
- Even in paradise sounds carry – if you don’t wish to have neighbors listen in on phone conversations, please don’t use the lanais as your phone booth. Be considerate of those around you.
- SMOKING is NOT PERMITTED ! not only in our home and on our lanais but also within 20 feet of any window or door on property – this is HAWAII LAW! Wind is the problem. Pay attention to where it’s coming from. If you must have a smoke, be considerate and pick a spot where the wind won’t blow it into a neighbor’s condo or public areas. Perhaps no one will notice.
- If time permits, leave us note in our guest book. We love knowing what your enjoyed doing or wish you had done on your vacation. Besides operating instructions, our renters manual has lots of info on activities and restaurants as well as some local recipes and resources.
We hope you will enjoy our Aloha – A hui hou (we look forward to seeing you again)!
