Most relaxing family holiday ever!
From the booking, to arrival, amenities, property location, Villa location and kids sand toys, this Villa was a great place to stay! We’ve stayed at Ko Olina Beach Villas before but this B-110 villa was the best! Close to beach and pool in the property, it was just an overall relaxing holiday! The property at Ko Olina Beach Villas is amazing and very well kept. The staff are all friendly and very helpful. The Beach Bar is perfect for snacks and drinks by the pool and sunset and the staff were all super friendly too. Munro Murdock [and his Team] were great to work with and communicated well from start to finish. I would recommend this Villa to any family looking to have a relaxing holiday! We will be back!

A: Anyone who owns Hawaii real estate, manages Hawaii real estate or has an interest in owning or managing Hawaii real estate, would be encouraged to register, listen in and participate in the webinar.

The hope is to provide well-organized content of value that will help Hawaii property owners to become more well-informed about their options for the successful management and marketing of their vacation homes.

Q: How long does it last?

A: The content-sharing portion is designed to be about 20-30 minutes in length. An open question and answer session following the prepared content may last another 10-15 minutes depending upon how many questions are asked. Participants are welcome to call in and hang up when they choose, but are encouraged to listen in to the entire webinar to maximize the opportunity to utilize the content being shared.

Q: How is the content selected for the webinar?

A: The content being selected to share with participants during the webinar is based on various factors, including:

  • Market trends in the vacation rental industry
  • State, Island/County and City legislation and regulation that has a direct impact on vacation rental properties in Hawaii
  • Seminars at conferences and special events, such as the Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA), Vrbo’s RezFest conference, local seminars with industry partners
  • Technology innovation and the impact and opportunity it creates for vacation rentals
  • Convergence of Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) marketing/selling vacation rental inventory and vacation rental companies (like Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway) getting into the offering of hotel products on their sites
  • Travel industry trends, mobile device technology, Guest travel preferences, savvy traveler expectations, etc.

There are NUMEROUS factors that are involved in the successful marketing and management of a vacation rental and the webinar is geared towards helping property Owners to better understand that, and to learn how to better capitalize on it and take advantage of the market opportunities as they present themselves.

Q: Does it cost anything to register and participate?

A: No. Your registration and involvement is completely free and intended to provide you with valuable information about the successful marketing and management of your Hawaii vacation home.

If participants have any questions or interest in our property marketing and management services, we would simply schedule a separate call or meeting to discuss things in more detail and such Owners can reach out to us using the contact form below.

Q: How often are webinars scheduled and hosted?

A: The goal is to host an open webinar once a month and if demand for the content increases, so will the frequency. Currently future Webinars are scheduled to be held on the SECOND (2nd) Friday of every month at 9am, Hawaii Time.

Q: What if I have a scheduling conflict? Is the presentation recorded and archived?

A: While the content of each webinar is being recorded within the software being used to host the webinar, the recorded archives are not currently being published to the website.

However, once a webinar is concluded, this page of the website will be updated to reflect what the next scheduled date is for a future webinar. Currently future Webinars are scheduled to be held on the SECOND (2nd) Friday of every month at 9am, Hawaii Time.

Q: Do you offer private consulting or coaching for property management?

A: While we do not offer private consulting or coaching at this time, we do offer prospective Clients with a complimentary market analysis of their property and management operation.

These consultations are typically taking place with Hawaii property Owners that are looking to simplify their lives by having a professional property management Team oversee the day-to-day marketing and management of their Hawaii vacation home.

What some property Owners and their family members do not realize, is that the successful management of a property really can become a part-time job, at the very least. While there is nothing wrong with that and many Owners enjoy the process of marketing and booking and servicing Guests, some property Owners recognize the value in the trade-off between time and money and choose to have a management Team handle the management needs for their property.

Since our Team at Love Hawaii Villas specializes in Hawaii vacation rental marketing and management, we are able to efficiently add new properties to our portfolio and being working together to achieve the desired level of exposure and results. Owners looking for management services are seeking a management partner that they can trust, that will be taking great care of their property, AND, that has the ability to generate bookings sufficient that the financial performance of the property is as good or even better than that being achieved by other property Owners and Managers.

In such cases, we are also evaluating the nature of the Owner’s property and their level of desired involvement so that we can determine if it would be a good fit for our Management Team to consider working with the new Owner and property. We are always seeking to create win-win business opportunities and if we are unable to do so then we will walk away from it.

Any Hawaii property Owners interested in learning more about our Property Management Services and scheduling a complimentary market assessment should reach out to Munro Murdock directly at 808-492-6242 or by email at

Q: Can I participate if I already have a Property Manager?

A: Of course! There are no requirements or pre-requisites to register for the webinar. We simply hope to provide useful, relevant and helpful information for Hawaii vacation rental Owners.

If property Owners with an existing management contract are considering a change in management provider, they would first need to reference their Property Management Contract documents and initiate a formal notice to cancel that contract with the existing Management team before attempting to hire another firm to manage the property.

Our Team has worked with many such transitions where our Client chose to work with us after using another Company. In such cases, our Team works openly and collaboratively with the former Management Company to ensure that the transition can be as smooth and seamless as possible, not only for the Owner, but also for all the future Guests.
