We are former West Coast dairy farmers who vacationed annually in sunny Kihei (South Maui) from 2004-2009. In 2010 we sold the farm and immigrated to Hawaii. We invested in four vacation rental condos that first year and have been vacation renting on Maui ever since.
Cara grew up in Austria and loves baked goods and coffee. She has a business degree from the University of Calgary, but left her budding big city career in 2001 to join Sig on his dairy farm along the West Coast. She is your main point of contact through the booking process, researching your stay (have you checked out her blog with trip ideas?) and communicating throughout your stay.
Sig grew up in BC, Canada with a passion for dairy-farming. To this date he subscribes to dairy publications and enjoys going to trade shows, keeping up with advancements in the dairy industry. For many years our farm had one of the top-producing dairy herds in Western Canada working in close partnership with our animal nutritionist and veterinarian (no rBST). He brings his attention to detail and perfectionism to the condos and handles most of our maintenance needs (and all those remodels we’ve done over the years). He checks our condos prior to every check-in, ensuring they are in top condition from both a cleaning and maintenance standpoint.
We hope to welcome you to Maui soon! We know you will enjoy your stay in any of our beautiful, well-appointed condos.
You are welcome to book directly with us (we accept credit card and payment by US check). We also list our condos on Vrbo and Airbnb. However, you will always find the best deal right here when you book direct as you do not pay their service fee (up to 15%)

What people say about us
(please read our reviews on the condo pages for many more testimonials)
This condo was superb and Cara is one of the best hosts we’ve had the pleasure of renting from. You can tell that she cares for those staying and she is proud of the unit itself and wants it to be the ideal vacation spot for families. The amenities are really good (pool, hot tub, grilling area) and the location we thought is really good for all the activities on the island. There is even a small restaurant on-site literally next door that actually opens late. Definitely don’t hesitate to book this place. (Sugar Beach 104)
The condo was immaculately kept, stocked with everything that you would need to make it a wonderful stay! Everything from beach supplies, to a drying rack for those hang to dry items. We have stayed at the Palms several times and I have to say that this would definitely be a unit that we would rent again! Cara was super helpful and great with communicating- not that we needed her at all during our stay because we had no issues! The Palms has a beautiful sunset view from the pool every evening!

This unit was amazing and exceeded our expectations. The complete renovation from top to bottom turned out fantastic. In particular the kitchen was spectacular and well stocked including a Vitamix blender. It was great that everything was so new and clean and felt like we were the first people to use the place. The air conditioning in both the main living room and bedroom were a bonus as they were not the portable ones or window mounted ones that are often loud and ineffective. We also enjoyed to in suite laundry, We spent most of our time at the beach but the pool and the grounds of the complex were well maintained. The location was also very central to many beaches and restaurants in Kihei. We hope to be back soon! (Kamaole Sands 2-206)
