John,
 
We really enjoyed your beautiful condo.  It was great to be able to walk to dinner and visit the galleries and shops after a day at the  beach without having to drive.
 
Thanks,

Dear John,
 
We had a great time on  Maui and will leave now to big island. 
 
Your condo is pretty near to Front Street and we enjoyed seeing so many galleries and the activities.  Your condo is spacious for two people.  Only the traffice noice was disturbing.  The earplugs helped us a bit to sleep. 
 
Best wishes for the future.

John,
 
We couldn't have asked for a better location!  You have a beautiful condo and we enjoyed every moment here.  We especially enjoyed your recommendations - the dinner at David Paul's will be remembered. 
 
Thanks so much,

Dear John,
 
We truly enjoyed our stay in  your condo.  It is located close to all the shops and places of interest.  Your condo has all  the amenities to meet our needs.  We definitely would  like to come back here the next time we return back "home".  For us Hawaii will always be "home" as we were born and raised here in Lahaina and moved to California 30 years ago.

Your condo was everything you said it would be.  We were very comfortable here and would love to stay here the next time we come to Maui.  Being so close to shops and restaurants made our trip so very relaxing.  We took some of your suggestions on places to visit and were not disappointed!
 
Being able to connect to the  internet made it so easy for us to find things we forgot to ask you about!  Thanks for everything.

Dear John,
 
This was our 4th time staying here in these condo's.  The new look is great and very comfy!  We had a great time!  Only thing I would recommend is dual pane windows to drown out the highway noise.  We come every year.  So we will talk to ya next time.  Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Dear John,
 
This condo was a great "home base" while we explored this beautiful and interesting area.  We'll go home refreshed after our visit to the Big Island for a few days.

Dear John,
 
We loved staying in your beautiful condo!  It was very comfortable and all the furnishings and amenities were great.  We especially loved the shower!
 
The location couldn't be beat.  It was wonderful being able to walk to town.  We loved our first visit to Maui so much and sincerely hope to visit again.
 
One recommendation - it would be helpful to have a set of drawers to put our clothes away in...or to have extra hangers.
 
Mahalo!!  Best regards,

Hi John,

 

Boy, did we love your condo!  It's so thoughtfully planned out with many luxuries and considerations.  This is where we'll stay when we return.  Both families said we could easily live here in your rental.  The wireless internet, DVD and TV's were much used and appreciated.  And it was great to have all the basics furnished for us - even suntan lotion and beach towels.  How thoughtful!  We only had to buy food.

Thanks for the nicest vacation rental we've ever staying in.

P.S. Beds were so comfy. 

  • December 29, 2006

Dear John,

I loved the condo, my favorite parts were the pool, TV, Beds (very comfortable) and last but the recommendation in how you told people about the submarine, well I went on it and I saw amazing stuff such as schools of fish and I saw a sting ray and we almost saw a shark. Well I defentily loved the pool on a hot summer day the cool waters brush up against are skin.  So thank u fo letting us stay.  We appreciate it.  So just kick back and relaxe. 

Sincerely,

We loved our stay in Maui!  The location of your condo is great being within steps of nice shops and good food.  The proximity of the condo to the the major roadway makes it easy to get to the best beaches by shuttle and bus such as the sugarcane train to Kaanapali.  We also found it easy to drive to Haleakala Crater for the sunset which was well worth the drive and cool temperatures. 

We love the extras you have in the condo such as the TV's and the Wi-Fi; well used.  The fantastic showers and decor are a lovely addition.

Dear John,

Your condo is in a great location.  We had a wonderful time and highly recommend Kaanapali Beach!  Thanks for having a baby bed all set up for us!  I'd also recommend the Nanny Connection (
www.thenannyconnection.com) for any parents wishing for a night or two out!

Thanks again,

  • February 21, 2007

Hi John,

We had a wonderful stay at your perfectly appointed condo!  The only problem was that it was too short.  We easily could have spent our entire Maui stay here.  Your place is so comfortable and private yet so close to all the action and activities of Lahaina, we quickly felt like it was our place. 

We'll have to find our way back here after the new pool area is completed - it should be even more perfect.

Dear John,

This was my first time in Hawaii and I don't think I'm going to leave.  If  you hear skittering in the closets, it's me.  don't be alarmed - I've  had  all my shots.

    Dear John -

    I must say that when I first booked your condo I was soo nervous!  There's so many scams going on...but just talking to you over the phone and via email, I had a "gut" feeling that you were a genuine person.  Then when we got to your  condo it was the REAL DEAL!  Absolutely beautiful and soo clean.  Our family really enjoyed our Maui vacation!

This was our second stay @ these  condos.  First time was 9 nine  years ago! WOW what a change, your place was so nice  - convenient, showers were great, everything was clean and well maintained.

Thank  your so much for "working  us in"  --- what a super change from the snow, ice, and  cold weather.  (we both  got a "light" sunburn to take back and show off)Smile

Thanks again,

  • March 13, 2008

Aloha!

We stayed a couple of times here  when it was  the Maui Islander and were initially disappointed to find  out that the Islander  was no more.  Although  it was a bit run down, we appreciated it for  it's rustic feel.  We were fortuante  enough tto locate Dr. Wayland's condo here.  It has certainly gone more upscale and is very well-equipped.  Not many places you find a rice cooker.  And don't  overlook the  beach umbrellas next to the washer/dryer.  This place still has  the most relaxed resort feel on  Maui  and Lahaina is the  place to  be.  Only unfortunate thing is th $15 per day parking ripoff, but Dr. John warned us about that.  Here's hoping you enjoy your stay as much as we did ours.

Dear John,

This was our first vacation here in Maui and it was wonderful.  Part of it was your condo because the location  is perfect and it is equiped with anything a family needs.

We hope to  come back here  on  our next vacation to Hawaii. 

Thank you so much,

John,

The room is so beautiful!  We stayed here five times before and  it is 100 times better!  They did a great job on the renovations.  We love the shower!  We also love the new  pool.  We would like to stay here again in  the near future.  All of the amenities were great.  We love Maui!

Dear John, 

Thank you!  We picked your condo mainly by location.  Our favorite spots are close by.

Breakwall (surfing) Sunrise Cafe (breakfast) Foodland (grocery and  poke!!)  Maui Tacos (duh) Kimo's (hula pie) and  Scoop's (ice cream)

Visiting the local spots brought back wonderful memories of our wedding.  Your  condo was the cherry on the top with all of the modern conveniences that made it feel like home.   We enjoyed the  pool, wireless internet, and everything we needed was here.  Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated.

Big Mahalo!

Thank you.

Aloha John,

We love it here at the Aina Nalu.  Your unit is beautifully decorated and in the best location on the property.  Our three children loved being close to the pool and club house and made good use of the facilities.  While unloading our van one evening, four baby kittens came out thru the fence and played with my little ones.  They loved it!  Just like  they loved the hammock and gathering coconuts to play with. 


We had a great trip to Hana, Paia, Kihei, Makawao, and  Wailea.   Our  three  day stay in  Molokai was wonderful.  We attended my brothers wedding there and met our  new  inlaws.  Now  that's way cool...

PS The one thing I could have  done  without is that "Rooster"  that cock-a-do-a-do starting  at 2 am. I  wanted to bean  it in the head  with a large coconut!  (Is that against the law?)

Aloha John,

We really enjoyed our stay here at your condo.  This is our second trip to the Aina Nalu as we find it a beautiful resort.  Our only complaint is that we were not sure what the phone number here is, how family can get a hold  of us  and how  to  retrieve our phone messages. 

Other  than that , everything  was great! 

Thanks again,

Alison  and Josh
