Our Story

Having lived both on the Big Island and Maui for over the past ten years, Hawaii, with its rich culture and aloha spirit, has become a cherished home to us. However, as much as we love waking up to scenic ocean vistas filled with breaching whales and rainbows, we also love to travel the world.
 
Leaving our beloved pet Maltese, our home, and our jobs is difficult, but we have been blessed to have friends and coworkers who have generously offered to take care of things while we are away. Thus began the saga of wandering through gift shop after gift shop looking for the perfect expression of our appreciation, and, thus began Mahalo from Maui
 
"Mahalo" is the Hawaiian way to say "thank you." We hope that our simple yet heartfelt sentiment will help others say how much they appreciate the value of what their friends, family, and coworkers do for them to make their vacations possible and worry free.
