    Maui accessible condo is amazing experience

    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!

        Does the condo have an overhead lift or a Hoyer type lift to help someone like me, a C5-C6, get into bed since I'm unable to transfer myself?

          hi, unfortunately there is no lift for the bed, but we rented a shower seat and 2 wheelchairs from gammie health care. maybe they have a lift for rent as well?

            Thank you Scarlett and Robbin for your positive reviews of my condo and I have to work on you Robbin to get you to come back to Maui again as it has been a few years. Thank you DaDutchman for your question and as Scarlett said our condo we does not have a ceiling lift in the bedroom so you'd rent a hoyer lift. FYI, the bed has height and space under it to accommodate the hoyer lift legs. Gammie HomeCare {listed on our website} is a very good and reliable resource on island for medical equipment which rents and delivers medical equipment like hoyer lifts, shower benches and shower chair to the condo all the time. Our condo does not come with any medical equipment as everyone needs different equipment and Gammie is really easy to work with. Thank you for the exposure and if anyone has questions about my condo or Maui in general please either post the question here or e-mail me at info@mauiaccessiblecondo.com Aloha Bruce

                In addition to renting an accessible home base to explore Maui from, accessible transportion is very important and Wheelers Van Rentals has a couple nice new accessible vans that I'm getting good reviews about. If you stay at my condo Wheelers will also give you 5% off. Aloha

                      Careful there, Bruce, you've got a typo in your website name. It should be:

                        Tried to PM you & the system wouldn't process it, looked all over for the calendar I thought you posted but can't find it. Will you PM me the updated schedule? Or use my email address - it's the same as in 2014. Now I can't wait to make the reservations! Thanks, Linda

                            It is great that Linda is booked to come back to the condo and along with a couple other new reservations my updated available is
                            Sunday May 29, 2016 to Thursday, June 23, 2016 Friday, July 1, 2016 to Saturday, July 9, 2016 Saturday, July 16, 2016 to Friday, July 29, 2016 Friday, August 5, 2016 to Wednesday, August 31, 2016, Saturday September 10, 2016 to Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Thursday, October 27, 2016 to Monday, November 28, 2016.
                            Amy and I have had a good winter at the condo and leave it to go back to Canada in less than 2 weeks so we are trying to wind up our projects. We replaced our front entrance and like all Hawaiian project it'll probably be finished on our departure date. Our 2 week delivery date for the glass and louvres is now over 5 weeks and it'll be for sure here next week. I'll believe it when I see it. On the positive side I got a combination dead-bolt lock that works very well. I was never good with keys so this is a great improvement. E-mail me at info@mauiaccessiblecondo.com if you have any questions.

                              I am so happy to hear about your experience! My family and I have been planning a trip to Hawaii this summer so I will most definitely take this into consideration. Thank you for the share!!!

                              Update: found a different condo that has the amenities we will need, still deciding though!
