Kauai Property Management
Ahh Aloha has been managing Kauai vacation rental properties for more than 15 years. We manage everything from homes, villas, and condominiums, to unique beachfront studios, resort hotel units, and cottages.
The Keys to Our Success
Our experienced, capable, and friendly local staff helps insure that our guests have a great experience and that our owners’ investments are safeguarded.
Average occupancy rate across all of our rental properties is 80% (while some premium units are filled 95% of the time). Our great management staff, friendly and knowledgeable reservationists, and ongoing investment in a prominent online presence are three key reasons for this success.
And unlike some rental management companies, we engage in no real estate sales, so we can devote our full time and attention to our owners’ rental properties. ❀
