No better way to spend Christmas holidays in Maui
Our first trip to Maui and couldn't have been more pleased with our selection of Daynna's property at Kihei Garden Estates. Long before our trip, Daynna had provided a self-produced full colour guide loaded with information in great detail about the condo, the community and activities and restaurants to enjoy on the island. The condo itself met our needs perfectly for myself and my wife along with our adult son. The condo was very well equipped both in the kitchen as well as beach chairs, boogie boars and a beach umbrella for our convenience. Appreciated having the washer and dryer at our disposal as well as the dishwasher. Also enjoyed being able to walk out to the patio rather than a lanai and our close proximity to the pool and bbq area. Condo is a very short walk to what we called our private beach where we spent several afternoons watching the sunset. Numerous and varied shopping and restaurant choices a short walk away in Kihei and many resorts, beaches and golf courses a short drive away. The resident Manager Sherie checked in with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction and was at our disposal if we had any questions. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Maui and will undoubtedly tell a positive story to anyone looking at booking a vacation in Kihei. Mahalo nui Daynna!

Best Holiday we've ever had!
We had the best girls’ trip! The location was great and close to everything. The condo was perfect with everything we needed. We did everything we wanted to do and more. Thank you Trevor & Daynna for everything.

Wonderful condo , clean organized and well appointed with all that you would need for Maui fun. Daynna is a thoughtful hostess and although we had no issues that we needed her for , we knew she was there if we did. Property manager is very friendly and it just feels like a quiet Hawaiian backyard when you are on the lanai. Pool and jacuzzi were great for the evenings. Beach is lovely , lots of walking and we swam with turtles on our first day there .... amazing. Will stay there again!

Awesome Family Vacation
My husband and I travelled to Maui and stayed at this lovely condo with our 7 month old son. The condo couldn't have been any more perfect for us and was spotless when we arrived. We loved having our breakfast outside on the lanai while our son watched the birds and geckos run around. The pool and hot tub were perfect and the beach was amazing. The beach is right across the street and the condo is fully equipped with everything you need for fun at the beach, including the sand toys for our son! The owners have thought of everything and we tried many of their recommendations for food and sightseeing that were provided in our welcome book and were able to answer all our questions before and during our stay. Highly recommend the fish tacos at Coconuts, the pizza at Fabianos, as well as macadamia nut pancakes at Stella Blues. All 3 minute walk from the condo. Also a grocery store right behind the complex that was very handy to have! Lovely complex and condo and we would love to stay here again soon!

Super nice apartment and very helpful owner
We were very impressed with the quality and availability of all that was offered: the fully equipped kitchen, the modern bathroom, the comfortable beds and pillows, the thick and soft towels, the cosy furniture, the well-functioning appliances, the availability of beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and boogie boards, the setting in a beautiful garden and the close proximity to the ocean. Even more impressive was the information package we received prior to our trip with lots of tips and recommendations in a glossy brochure that must have taken a lot of effort putting together. Also the communication with the owner was always pleasant, helpful and timely. Daynna certainly goes out of her way to make her guests comfortable. We felt we were invited to her home, rather than just using a rental. It was the perfect solution for us.

Aloha Daynna and Trevor
We felt very excited to pop the champagne cork and celebrate New Year's Eve out on the lovely lanai in warm, tropical breezes.The sunniest part of Maui, according to the locals in south Kihei, is where we found ourselves set to relax. We were just steps away from a lovely beach where we spent a lot of time enjoying it's turquoise daytime rhythm and bold tangerine sunsets. Your visitors guide was extremely helpful in planning our day excursions to various sites or beaches. We were newcomers to the island and the hints and suggestions were much appreciated.
The beauty of Maui extended indoors too, and was our calm, relaxing oasis. You have thought of everything one could need or want. It is renovated and decorated in a very inviting way, with comfortable beds, beautiful marble and tile and the huge shower head. Can't forget the world's best blender to fill your tropical concoction with, and sip from your choice in the glass cabinet. It seems doubtful, when looking out at the lush tropical gardens that are the centerpiece of the condo units, that you could be just a minute away from a busy street full of restaurants, shops and grocery. We had a busy but restful holiday in your condo and would love to come again. The best part? My husband practiced STILLNESS....I already know how to do that!

Many apologies for a delayed and very deserved thanks! We loved our time in Kihei and appreciated the location and amenities offered in your condo! We were impressed with darn near everything and can't wait to go back!!
Thank you a million times over!!

Our Maui vacation at Trevor and Daynna's could have not been better. The location was perfect with restaurants and grocery shopping a short walk away. The pool and gardens were well maintained and a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the fantastic weather! The condo had everything you would ever need. We loved loading up our jeep with all the beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards and venturing off to explore new beaches every day. The condo was well equipped with all the kitchen gadgets and dishes we needed.
The master bedroom bed was just so comfortable we had no aches and pains in the morning, what a treat! Would highly recommend and hope to return soon!

We have stayed at D-104 in Kihei Garden Estates twice now, and loved it both times. The location is great, the suite is cozy and well-equipped as well as being attractive and modern, the grounds are impeccable, and the pool and other facilities are excellent. To be so close to the beach at sunset every evening is truly a highlight of any trip to maul. We would recommend it to anyone!

I've been meaning to send you a note even though I left one in the guestbook thanking you for allowing us to stay at your condo in Kihei! We had a very wonderful vacation with our kids and my mom, this was her first trip in years and we hope to do it again next year! The rooms were comfortable, amenities on-site clean and people friendly! We were close to everything. There's this fish restaurant nearby that we truly loved! Went 3x's! I wrote the name in the guestbook! So thank-you for a great trip and we hope to be in contact again soon!
Francyne, Kamloops, BC
Our stay in Maui was perfect. The condo was just so comfortable and homey. I just loved it and felt right at home. It truly has everything you need.
I met your very sweet neighbour Irene. She came over to let me know that I could come by if “there was anything I needed”. When she learned that we knew the owners – she was delighted – apparently you two “work too hard when you should be on vacation”.
Please let Daynna know how much we appreciated all the information that she pulled together for us – she really thought of everything!
It really is a little piece of paradise and we hope to visit again (but for longer)
Frankie, Victoria BC
Sad that we are leaving your place today
We've had a truly magical holiday and we've been so comfortable in your condo! Thank you! Our best compliments to you will be our enthusiastic referral to other families coming to Maui.
We're headed out to the beach for one last time (sigh), and then Pa'ia since we didn't do it on the road to Hana yesterday.
Bye for now.

Piece of Maui Paradise is truly that, as we had a great time there. The Condo is awesome, as we had 2 other families in the same complex and ours was by far the nicest. Everything we needed was available and the location was excellent. The pool and common area (BBQ’s/kitchen) were very clean and always available any time we needed. We are already talking about going back and we would definitely stay here again.

Aloha Daynna & Trevor
Just a quick note to thank you for the opportunity to spend the week of Feb 2-9th in your condo and how much we appreciated how you have it furnished with all the comforts of home. You have a wonderful place there and it truly is ... a little "Piece of Paradise".

Aloha from your “first returning guests” at your amazing condo in Maui! As you know, it was in May of last year (2008) that my husband and I visited Maui for the first time and stayed at your condo as the first guests since your initial purchase. We had such a wonderful time that when we returned home; we couldn’t wait to tell our teenage children about our wonderful adventures in Maui and the fantastic accommodations at Kihei Garden Estates. Well, our daughter, who was about to graduate from high school, became very excited and begged us to take her to Maui (and your condo) as a graduation present! It was a tall order to fill, but knowing we would have safe, comfortable, clean and affordable accommodations, not to mention a great location, we made it work. So, in June/July of 2009, we once again visited your condo in Kihei, Maui; this time, however, as 4 guests! The kids loved everything about the condo, especially the pool, and all that Maui has to offer! Thank you for helping make my daughter’s dream grad gift come true! I know she will always treasure the memories and she says that she is trying to save enough money to return again (or “buy your condo from you” – ha ha). You truly have a little piece of Paradise in Maui and we cannot stop talking about all the amazing features of your condo as well as the wonderful adventures we experienced as a family. Thank you.

Trevor & Daynna
Our stay in Maui was lovely and it was so nice to meet you.
Your home is lovely and so thoughtfully stocked. Having the beach chairs and towels, and especially the boogie boards and choice of toys made our vacation packing much lighter.
We love how convenient the condo was to groceries, restaurants, and spent one afternoon shopping within the few blocks. Loved Vietnamese Cuisine and the malasadas piping hot from Homemaid Cafe. Found lots of fun jewelry gifts from White Pebbles, where we got quite a kick out of Su Su and her dog.
We did bring a puzzle, something we've done on most vacations, but only the wrapping came off. There was so much to do and 8 days flew quickly. We've left it for your other guests with your games.
The staff at the complex are very nice and helpful. Thank you to Lucy for helping our friend whose son left his DS game charger in the unit after we checked out. We were at the airport when his mom called.
Thank you again. Our daughter's favorite beaches were Kam1 and Secret Cove. We hope to be back in Maui soon to revisit them.
Karen, Henry, and Keira, Burnaby BC
Thanks very much Trevor and Daynna. The stay at your condo was fantastic - we really appreciated the opportunity and will definitely be keeping your contact info close at hand for the future. You have done very well with the place - very inviting :).

Ross and I are back from Hawaii and really loved your condo. It’s beautiful and had everything we could possibly need. We truly enjoyed our stay. I’ll be raving about it to everyone I know.

From Carly Thomas
I discovered a beautiful piece of Maui paradise staying at Trevor and Daynna's condo. Located in Kihei, it was very central. A block away from the beach, which my sister and I named Namaste' Beach, we enjoyed our morning coffee and a little yoga as well as the most amazing sunsets.
The condo was comfortable and we enjoyed the lanai each evening as the trade winds cooled the evening air. It was great to have a washer/ dryer right in the suite, we all appreciated that home comfort as well as all the detailed little things Trevor and Daynna have taken care of to make their condo most comfortable for a home away from home. There were 4 of us staying in the condo, we never felt crowded or any inconvenience.
The pool was a nice addition to our holiday when we just wanted a dip to cool off, and the BBQ provided a few yummy dinners, one being the Mahi Mahi I caught on the fishing trip we went on there.
We met some wonderful people there at the condos as well, everyone was very friendly!
My time there was such a blessing to me, & my family.
I have been left with beautiful memories and I am definitely going back to create more.
Carly Thomas, Peachland, BC
Thank you, Daynna and Trevor
We had an absolutely fantastic time! We left a note on your condo bulletin board thanking you for helping us have a wonderful "second honeymoon". Our praises for your condo (and Maui itself) are endless. I would go again in an instant! Your condo was lovely and we are seriously considering going back next year with our kids this time. We loved that your condo was in a quiet area; it felt very family oriented. You have done a wonderful job updating the condo and it was a perfect fit for us. I wouldn't suggest changing a thing. The ceiling fans were not only beautiful but also very useful as we had them going all the time. You certainly did think of every detail, right down to the wine and margarita glasses! Loved that the fridge had an icemaker! Awesome! We met Lucy, whom we'd love to adopt. What a beautiful, warm soul!
Anyway, I am your "word of mouth" advertising and my excitement is catching on.......sooooo many people have shown an interest and are looking at your website. Feel free to use me as a reference if you'd like, but I don't think you will need it, based on the bookings you already have!
Aloha and Mahalo!

Hi Trevor and Daynna
We can't think of anything we needed because everything was available for us. You have taken care of all the details, even having a little cooler to use when we wanted to pack some snacks and drinks with us on our day trips. We liked having the washer/dryer in the unit.
We felt very comfortable at your place, almost like home. Your place will look top-notch with the granite counter top and bathroom renovations.

From Rana LeBlanc
Just wanted to thank you for the use of your lovely condo. We had so much fun in Maui! The condo was so nice and had everything we needed! Even beach toys for my 4-year-old Samantha! We loved sitting on the deck with a drink and the kids played on the grass! The pool was great -- a little cold but nice once you were in it!
We loved Kihei and the condo's location was great! Lots to do around. Lovely community! The people were so friendly and nice to tourists.
We were sad to go but knew we would be back.
Rana LeBlanc, West Vancouver BC
Aloha Trevor & Daynna
We just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our time at Kihei Garden Estates. You have done a lovely job on the decorating and updating. The bed was extremely comfortable! We are right now considering dates for next year to return to Maui, and perhaps Molokai as well. We will be in touch again when we are ready to book (we are keeping an eye on the availability calendar).
Kelly & Jim Burt, Surrey, BC
Hi Trevor and Daynna
We just wanted to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at D-104 in Kihei Gardens. Your unit is tastefully decorated and had everything that we could possibly need for our stay. The A/C unit was a lifesaver too!
Thanks again and we hope to come back soon.
