Response from Alyson & Kutira:

Thank you for your review CB and giving me the opportunity to share some information regarding your requests. We are a permitted BnB we have to charge the Hawaii Transient State Taxes of 13.42%. We have this clearly mentioned in our description. Unfortunately the AirBnB is not able to charge the taxes through their system and therefore we have to collect this amount upon arrival. Sorry for this inconvenience, but we have no other choice and that also insures you, that once you have booked with us through AirBnB, that your stay is secured. We will not be subject to be shut down by the County. People with no permit are considered illegal and can be shut down.
Regarding the shopping: this is an additional service we offer only for the very late check in's. Our local grocery shop in Paia, on the way from the airport to our land, is closed by 8.30pm. Of course there is always the option to shop at Safeway that is open 24 hours near the airport, but mostly when people have a very late arrival they just want to come out to the land. The $30 dollar shopping fee covers barley the cost of this service. Driving time is over one hour plus shopping time and gas. We are not making any extra money on this service our intention is to provide for our guests a relaxing morning, so they don't have to drive again to town to do shopping and start to enjoy the land and the hikes.
Late Arrival fee: Most of the flights do arrive around noon, but recently some of the air lines come in late and that means we have to wait sometimes till almost midnight. (Waiting for luggage, getting the rental car etc can often delay an arrival at 10pm at the airport already close to 11pm). We have to charge for late arrivals as we do have to hire people to do this job. Yes, this is a night time job. If Raphael or I have to do stay up as the owners, then we could not find another person and yes, this is an extra job for us as well. As owners we have many hats to wear. We are a bit larger then most of the other Airbnb places. In order to run an off the grid, sustainable place we have to take care of many things during the day. We start early in the morning, so late check in's are additional work for us and everybody appreciates to be paid for this service. Luckily 85% of the people arrive between 3pm and 7pm. This information is mentioned in our description as well. We have no intention to charge anything else then what is clearly explained in our description and available before you book. I am sorry that this information may have slipped your attention. We appreciate clarity and we are hosting guests since over 15 years. We also have this information on our website.
We are happy that you liked our land and had an enjoyable time with us. Thank you for staying with us and we hope one day we can welcome you back to your place. Warm aloha Kutira

    This is only about 20 min from our place. One of the best restaurants on Maui. You must make a reservation otherwise no luck. They are full every night... pricy... but really fantastic. Great fish!

    Carl Incerto is the best hairdresser in town. His color and hair cuts are "da kine". If he is not there then he is in New York or LA and does the hair of celebrities. He does my hair since 20 years.
