Travelweek takes a time out with Condominium Rentals Hawaii

It’s no secret that many Canadians love booking condo properties for their Hawaii vacations. The trend started decades ago, since the majority of Canadian visitors to Hawaii typically opt for longer stays. This trend also took hold at a time when the U.S. dollar maintained a stronger position over the Canadian dollar.

Now that Canadians are facing those times again, accommodation providers like Condominium Rentals Hawaii (CRH) may be a saving grace – offering accommodation options with full kitchens for cooking meals and space for families. Travelweek took some time with CRH to learn a little bit more about how it can help Canadian travel agents make their clients’ Hawaiian dreams come true.

Travelweek: On what islands are CRH’s properties located and who are the clients you cater to most?
CRH: “CRH is a family-owned company and has been offering top-quality accommodations since 1982. Presently CRH offers 16 vacation condo properties on Maui, and four on Kauai. We have a commitment to quality accommodations at outstanding value and strive to offer efficient service so guests will have the most remarkable vacation. On Maui we have acquired condos at Wailea Elua Village and Wailea Grand Champion. On Kauai most recently we have acquired Makahuena, located in Poipu.”

Travelweek: Canadians are still itching to get to Hawaii, even though they now have to combat a low Canadian dollar. How can CRH help Canadian travel agents make a Hawaii vacation a reality for their clients?
CRH: “Because we offer a variety of properties, both beachfront or near sandy beaches, we offer something for every budget. This includes traditional hotel rooms, studio, one and two bedroom condos. The CRH fabulous condo/car package has become very popular with guests and also includes one free additional driver.

“The car/condo package, from now until Dec. 16 is US$122.80 per night, plus tax and fees. The condo/car package starting Jan. 1 and running until March 30 is $205 per night, plus tax and fees. These rates are based on a Studio condo at Kihei Akahi and a four-door compact car. The rate is also based on two adults.”

Travelweek: What commission do you offer to agents booking with CRH? Are there any agent incentives you are also currently provide?
CRH: “The starting commission for our condos or condo/car packages is 10%. This commission is on a sliding scale and will also vary by property.”

Travelweek: What are some of the other specials you are featuring over the winter months?
CRH: “We also work with our Canadian wholesale partner TravelBrands where agents can take advantage of ongoing winter specials.”
