Key Benefits by Partnering with the
Preferred On-Site Property Manager
“Take it from a guy who managed his own unit for 10 years...RHA is the only property manager that couples a handsome profit year over year without any additional effort or headaches associated with owning and managing a vacation rental. I used to spend my vacation running to the hardware store and spending all my spare time maintaining my unit. Now when I come to Maui, I sit back, relax, and enjoy my time at the Mana Kai, while RHA does all the work“— Jim Nugent, Owner - 512
BECOME A RESORT HOTELS ASSOCIATES, LTD. LIMITED PARTNER
Before considering managing your Mana Kai Maui (MKM) condo as a vacation rental yourself with VRBO or outsource to any other property management company, take a close look at the Resort Hotels Associates Limited Partnership (RHA) the preferred on-site Property Manager for MKM owners. 44 owners currently entrust the management of their condo to RHA. Why? The key to their success stems from building a loyal customer base that returns year after year to experience what has become their home away from home. The RHA staff prides themselves by ensuring each guest is welcomed into the Mana Kai Maui Ohana (“family”) during their entire stay.
RHA maintains an AAA - 3 Diamond rating which guarantees that guests experience daily maid
service, an on-site maintenance team for emergency repairs, and daily linen and towel services. No other management company or owner can provide such a high level of customer services because no other management company is located on-site to respond to your guests every need.
Key benefits to RHA Limited Partners
No Management Commission or Fees
Partnership profits are split amongst LPs equally. There are no fees or charges for management services.
Highest Occupancy All Year Round
By offering 5 types of rooms, standard at different price ranges to our guests, RHA can say yes to most reservation requests. As a result, RHA occupancy is over 82% during peak season and averages over 76% year round. Income is based on overall occupancy of the room category—not on owner's individual condo occupancy. Even during non-peak months, you receive income whether your individual condo was booked, or not. Income is based on the occupancy of the overall category.
Site Specific Marketing
Unlike any other management companies, the RHA focuses exclusively on marketing one property...yours. The RHA on-site marketing team is intimately aware of what makes Mana Kai Maui a most unique and beautiful property—and has the proven track record in getting the word out. Over 44% of RHA bookings are made directly by travelers, maximizing the profit to the owners by minimizing the need to pay commissions or fees to wholesalers or travel agents. The manakaimaui.com website supports multiple languages as well as mobile, tablet, and social media. Additional marketing is leveraged through travel agents, wholesalers, and through TripAdvisor, Expedia, and other online-travel websites. There is no better marketing platform for your MKM condo than RHA’s.
