Great Hawaii Vacations 01/19/19
Our trip was wonderful and the hotel accommodation was good and the service was excellent. We would stay at the Waikiki Parc Hotel again. Speaking of which, the service and follow-up of Great Hawaii Vacations was impeccable and we will definitely be recommending your company to friends and will use you again on our next trip. In particular, Tim Shaw worked exceptionally hard to find us a great deal and was a pleasure to deal with. You have certainly built a company to be proud of and I wish you every continued success. Best Wishes,
Linda Western Kirkland, WA
We just wanted to thank Kavan for all his help with our vacation. It was great, we had the best time ever. The hotel (Hyatt Regency Maui) was perfect and Maui was beautiful. Thanks also for the basket in our room. We did have to change room because of all the noise from the remodeling of the Marriott across the way, but the manager was very nice and they made the move easy.

We just got back from Maui and Waikiki . Our trip was fantastic, flawless and met every one of our expectations. Patti did a marvelous job in directing us where to go for the condo (Wailea Elua), the Hyatt Regency Waikiki, and Barefoot Tours (Andreas was phenomenal). We didn't encounter one delay. I have several friends planning trips to Hawaii within the next year and I will pass your name along to each of them.

Mahalo - the experience was wonderful. In fact I have referred a friend to Jennifer Runyon and your company to put together for him a package deal. I spent a great deal of time just sitting on the beach doing the "choca choca" (hang loose) thing. I work in a very, very high-stress environment on the mainland. I did some very serious soul searching during my stay, made some serious contacts and have both entrepreneurial skills as well as a marketable profession - I am seriously thinking about packing my bags and relocating to Hawaii. Sometimes we just get so caught up on making money that we loose sight of the viscerally important items such as living life to its fullest and utilizing our talents in a harmonious way with nature and our fellow brothers and sisters.

I was very pleased with the arrangements that you made for me except for one small detail. At the Ritz Carlton Maui they tried to make me pay a daily fee of $18/day for using their facilities, even though I did not use the spa or pool. I thought that all expenses connected to the room charge were included in what I paid for the package. They explained that this fee was not included in your package. However, they were very gracious and took the charge off of my bill. Aside for this one small irritant every thing, except the weather, was perfect. I will use your services again if I return to Hawaii.

Tim Shaw was excellent. Thanks for the help, I will call you for our trip next year.

We love the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. It is low key, relaxed and the location is perfect. We may go again next year. Thank you,
Gerald Battersby Fontana, CA
We loved the location! Patti really pushed this location and I am SOOOOOOOO glad she did. It was fabulous to walk down to the baby beach with our 13 month old. It was a very nice place, clean, well stocked, very responsive service, but the location was the BEST!!!!! We are planning on going back in February 2008, we loved it so much! Good luck,
Angela Clarno Kent, WA
We had a wonderful time. We will be calling you again next year to make arrangements. Thank You,

We enjoyed our trip to Maui and the Sugar Beach Resort rooms and staff were great. Thank you again for your great service.

We had a great vacation, and thank you for your consideration. We will definitely use your company next time we come to Hawaii. Mahalo,

Our vacation was great. Everything I was told about the condo was accurate - you just never know when booking via information and pictures from the internet. We loved the location being both on the water and walking distance from downtown. The rental car was ready and waiting for our pickup - everything went smooth there. The information you sent us prior to our departure was great as far as directions on where to go and how to get our keys, etc. We basically have no complaints - your service was great and not overwhelming. There is no doubt we would love to stay in the exact same place on our next visit to the Big Island.
Kim A. Kerns Anchorage, AK
We found the accommodations and service to be excellent at both places - no trouble at all with our reservations. Your service contributed to a trouble-free and relaxing vacation. Regards,
Ken Thomas Coquitlam, B.C.
Thanks for the well planned vacation. The accomodations in Maui were great. The Ohana Waikiki West was in need of upgrades, so it was not as nice as Maui. However we did enjoy ourselves in both places. Thanks again for your assistance.
Neil Soll Yorkton, S.K.
We stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel and had the time of our lives! We had a stunning suite that faced the ocean and really enjoyed the whole "vibe" of the hotel. We would definitely stay there again and we'd definitely book through Great Hawaii Vacations. Best wishes,

We had a great trip to Maui with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. We celebrated his sixth birthday at the Hololani. We liked the Hololani and enjoyed doing business with Great Hawaii Vacations. Great Hawaii will be our first choice for future Maui trips. Mahalo,

My husband and I had a fabulous time in Maui. We couldn't have picked a better way to start off the new year. Since it was to be our first time traveling to Hawaii, I surfed the web looking for a company that could help arrange the perfect vacation. I was very impressed with your website and decided to call. Our agent, Kavan Murphy, was very pleasant. He was able to arrange a wonderful (and affordable) package. I was impressed by the way he did not pressure me into anything, and offered suggestions (hotel versus condo, wonderful location). Our stay at the Royal Lahaina was wonderful, and a perfect location on Kaanapali beach. We had booked an oceanview room, but once we arrived, decided to upgrade to oceanfront. It was perfect. The property was beautiful, and the employees were wonderful. We would definitely stay there again. We appreciated the email that was send prior to our departure that suggested going on the barefoottours website and checking out the tours. We did just that and enjoyed snorkeling and whalewatching during our week's stay. On the plane ride back to the mainland, we were already making plans for next year (hopefully) - back to Hawaii ! We will contact your company to book our vacation. Best regards (and mahalo),
Patty & Mark Muguira Eagle, Idaho
We had such a wonderful stay in Hawaii and our experience working with your company was a pleasure from start to finish! We couldn't have been more satisfied with our arrangements and we thank you so much for the service you provided! We will definitely call on you again for our next trip to Hawaii. Also, we have already given your company info to MANY friends and even to several other travelers we met on our vacation. Mahalo!

We had a great trip to Maui . The accommodations at The Palms at Wailea were great and everything was as promised/quoted. We plan to go again next year and will use your company again! Thanks.
Mike Baker Calgary, Canada
Your arrangements at the Royal Hawaiian were impeccable. Service has greatly improved over 2 years ago, when they would keep you waiting until 3:30 to get into your room send you to a refugee lounge to wait. All that has changed and we got into our room immediately at noon when we arrived! Hotel service was overall fabulous! Thank you!
Brian Smith Victoria, B.C.
I was most impressed with your personable service and professional manner and the rates you provided were below those of your competition. My wife and I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki and our accomodations were superb. The included breakfast buffet was also a pleasant bonus. My only complaint is that our stay was not long enough! I'm not sure when we will make it back to Hawaii on our next trip but I will definitely contact you when the time comes. I will also be sure to spread the word and mention you to any friends or acquaintances that are planning a vacation to Hawaii.
Drew James Burnaby, B.C.
The ResortQuest Waikiki Banyan... Loved it! It's a great place to stay, great location (just off the main strip which suited me and the rest of my party well). We were on the 24 th floor facing the ocean and from our balcony and window were able to view the New Years Eve fireworks display at Waikiki Beach perfectly ? this was a bonus to us! The service we received from the front desk including from the concierge (Carl), with whom we had made a few bookings for various events around Waikiki, was excellent and in the case of the concierge, informative. I would definitely recommend this property to others as well as recommend your company to friends and family. I would also like to thank Tim for all his assistance ? he was very helpful and provided good assistance both during my telephone conversations with him as well as through email correspondence.

Our vacation came off without a hitch. Everything was fabulous. Thank you all SO much. It was a trip of a lifetime for my mother in law!
Jennifer Kleffner Bayfield, CO
Our Hawaii vacation was terrific! We enjoyed staying at the Outrigger Kanaola at Kona - it was terrific! We'd love to stay there again some day. Please be sure to pass along my thanks to Patti for the effort she put in on our behalf in finding these condos on such short notice. We're very grateful!
Yvonne Bridges Calgary, Alberta
Hawaii was fabulous. The Hilton Waikoloa Resort was perfect for our family and Carrie's suggestion of the Palace Tower location turned out to be the best. Thanks for your help in upgrading our car rental--the only way to go with all of the exploring and golfing that we did. It was a great vacation and I appreciate the ease in which you helped make it happen.
Elaine Tombari Berkley, CA
We had a great time in Hawaii. That was our 3rd and best Maui vaction. I thank Patti for the nice and kind help to have a such a great family reunion. I recommended my friend who is going to a family reunion in March at Maui.
Myung Youn Clarksville, MD
Thanks for the screen saver! We had a wonderful time, sorry we had to come home! Your agency did a fantastic job. Everything went smoothly! We will be calling you soon to book another trip back to Hawaii in April! I would highly recommend your company to all my friends & acquaintances. You did a terrific job for us!
Donna Thomson Temecula, CA
Making my reservations though Great Hawaii Vacations was a pleasure. Everyone was courteous from the start and my check-in went smoothly because all the information was accurately conveyed to the hotel. GHV will be highly recommended to others planning travels to Hawaii. Thanks for helping to make this a great vacation!

We had a great time and the accommodations were superb as expected. All arrangements made with yourselves were hassle-free.

Our trip was great, and everything promised was delivered! The hotel was exactly what I expected and a described by our agent Carrie. I plan on using your services again.
