hi, i just wanted to share my recent rental experience at the makani a kai condo owned by bruce and amy bernhardt, http://mauiaccessiblecondo.com/.
i've never traveled this far from home before (i live in new york) because travel and finding truly accessible rentals has always been kind of tough. but in talking with bruce many times prior to actually booking our trip to maui, his incredible knowledge and resourcefulness made my husband and me feel completely at ease, and like we were making a great decision. bruce is able to recommend the very best of maui disability-serving companies and attractions, as well as just the best general activities and fun places to see. every recommendation was fantastic, it saved us so much guess work and research. our trip would not have been nearly as awesome without his guidance and advice.
and the condo itself? gorgeous. spotlessly clean. and most importantly, it's truly barrier-free--remote controlled fans and lights and drapes and air conditioning, incredible huge bathroom and roll-in shower, touch lamps, comfy beds, spacious enough for two wheelchairs and two able-bodied guests, everything within reach. i've never seen anywhere this well thought out for someone with mobility issues.
if you are thinking of taking a trip to anywhere in hawaii, you should stay at this condo in beautiful maui. it was the best trip of my life!
