Dear Dave,


Hello!! How are you? How has the winter been for you sor far? I'm noticing most agencies have been busy; hope you have been too!!


Lulu So lots of people have been asking if we're keeping Lulu...


I'm sorry to say that we're not adopting her. After a lot of thought and consideration we've decided that we will only be Lulu's temporary foster home until the Boston Terrier Rescue Canada finds her a perfect forever home.


We decided that we're not really ready for the long-term committment of another dog, especially so soon after losing Dixie. We only signed up as a foster home so we are honouring our committment to the BTRC. Of course it was an option for us to adopt if we wanted to, but we don't feel it's the best thing right now.


Don't worry, the BTRC does a great job of finding permanent homes for their animals and I'm confident that Lulu will end up with the ideal family.


So having said that, she is currently up for adoption. Click HERE to see her on petfinder. She is a great little dog, but she does suffer from sepration anxiety, so I think an ideal home would be where she wouldn't be left alone too much. Do you know anybody looking for a gorgeous girl to adopt and love?


And speaking of gorgeous girls...

Kim and Lulu

That's Lulu with Kim Tobias from WestJet when we were out doing joint sales calls the other day.


Watch you inbox next week. Dave is heading down to PVR on Monday to do site inspections of the NEW Hilton Puerto Vallarta and the Krystal Puerto Vallarta. He will be sending a special email update from destination.


Have a great month and as always if you need anything please don't hesitate to contact us.

Freddie's Top Ten Reasons to Book Honua Kai


Honua Kai Valet 10. Washer/Dryer. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal but believe me, IT IS A BIG DEAL!! It's so awesome having high-end washer/dryers in every suite.


9. Size. The units are BIG! Our 2-bedroom unit last October was over 1,200sq feet.


8. Aquatic Playground. The best pools on Maui hands-down.


7. Duke's BeachHouse Restaurant. Hula Pie. Mmmmm...


6. Valet Parking. Is there anything better than pulling up in a convertible and handing the keys over to let someone else park it?


5. Consistency. Unlike most condo-style accommodations on Maui, you're not playing interior design roulette (some units looking like the 1970's). Every unit is new and every unit is gorgeously decorated.


4. Kitchens. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a world-class cook, but even I appreciated the high-end stainless steel appliances in every unit.


3. Concierge. Friendly on-site concierge available to help you book tours or just to advise you the best places to go snorkeling or shopping.


2. Internet. Love it or hate it, fact is most of us are plugged in even on vacation. Great to have fast & reliable internet service to update facebook status and vacation pics!


1. Location. Hello?? It's located directly on the #1 Rated North Ka'anapali Beach!
