Dear Cory,
Sorry, if the collection of the Hawaii State Tax has brought some stress we hope the waterfall experience washed away this stress and only the magical experiences will grace your memory.
Just to clarify some information: Before you booked with us we hope you were able to read in our profile the following information: "All of our houses are built to code and we have an official permit by the county of Maui to host guests.
Upon arrival: We will charge you and additional 13.42% tax from the amount you have already paid to AirB&B. (This is the mandatory Hawaiian Transient State Tax of 9.25% and Hawaii State Tax of 4.166%) Our cleaning fee is based on a 5 night stay. If we accept a shorter stay a higher cleaning fee is due as well. "
Yes, we are a legal B&B where most of the other AirBnB are not. They do not pay taxes, and they did not had to go through a permit process. However, they are also much more vulnerable to be shut down, as it is against the law to rent with out permit. At least booking with us ensured that you have a place after arrival on our island where some other guests where in for a big surprise and had a very stress full holiday to find other accommodations. The illegal accommodations on Maui also take a way affordable housing, it is not fair to those who are legal. After we accept your booking we do send a special welcome letter with the directions. In this email the tax is again mentioned to be collected upon arrival. AirbBnB does not want to charge/collect the legal taxes for us. Cory, you are very welcome and try if AirBnB want's to change their rules and collect the tax money for us. We certainly would love that too and we have the check in easy. Warm aloha and I hope we will be welcoming you again back to our place.

We are located closer to the region of Haiku and Paia. Even though the road to Hana is only about 25 miles away, the road has many curves and small one-way bridges. it takes about 2 hours drive and certainly a wonderful drive to explore. Regarding the suggestion of having a microwave. I have written a book 'The Lightness of Body and Being' eating healthy, GMO free ans as much as possible organic and less processed food as possible. I am a passionate advocate of a healthy and sustainable way of living. We suggest to heat up food with our oven or on the stove, rather then a microwave. I hope that you enjoyed all the other appliances, from coffee maker to toaster and blender. Thank you for letting me clarify on your suggestion and why we do not have a microwave.

Response from Alyson & Kutira:

We enjoyed having Cassandra and her partner at our Maui Eco Retreat. To have peace of mind I would like to respond to some of Cassandra's observations and requests.

Each room at our place has a theme and Cassandra stayed in the Hawaiian room. We always take great pride to coordinate the linens with the room theme, and of course do not update our website pictures each time we change bed linens.

We do have in each room a place for hanging clothes and shelves for storing goods. Each room has a different price according to space and location. Our Hawaiian Room is one of the smaller, less expensive rooms and therefore has less storage space. If you are looking for a more spacious room the Lotus Room would be a nice choice. The upstairs lanai outside the Hawaiian Room is not made to have furniture as the wind is too strong and would lift it off the deck.

We hope that this additional information gives Cassandra and other future guests more clarity, and we hope that Cassandra knows she is always welcomed back. Thank you for your feedback.
