About Tom McPherson

My husband Mack and I have visited beautiful Maui many times over the years. Finally, on our 25th wedding anniversary, we realized a long-time dream and purchased our first property in South Maui. We enjoyed hosting our extended family and friends so much, we decided to purchase additional Maui properties to share the aloha with island visitors.

Over the years, we've rented homes and condos all over the island, and experienced everything from nicely outfitted places to those that have seen better days. So we've taken great care to design and decorate our properties to not only meet, but hopefully exceed your expectations.

We look forward to providing a relaxing and luxurious home base for your island activities and adventures. As they say in the islands, Maui No Ka 'Oi! (Maui is the Best!)

Warmest Aloha,

Kim & Mack

Tom McPherson purchased this bungalow in 2012

It's a WOW - Our group of (4) very savvy travelers agree!!!

  • 5 of 5

To borrow from Kim: We'd sum up our stay at the residence in a single word - Wow! Our small group (2 couples) had a fantastic visit to Maui in celebration of our 10yr wedding anniversary & the Dolphin Ohana fulfilled our needs beautifully. Want to head to the beach for the day? No problem - The home came equipped w/ all accessories needed to enjoy a day of sun worship at your favorite sandy location (seats, umbrellas, coolers, etc...). Want to lounge & relax at the residence? No problem - The Ohana is located in a beautiful & quite neighborhood perfectly suited for afternoon naps on the patio while listening to the dolphin fountain's gurgle (I can attest to that). The kitchen was well equipped, meeting all our needs & we made use of the patio grill during our stay as well - Simply outstanding! Kim (owner) was an absolute delight & very generous of her time - The property reflects the high-level of care & attention she invests in it. We were happy to enjoy every aspect the Ohana offered including the hot tub & outdoor shower - Nice design touch Kim! Courtney (property Mgr) was extremely attentive, quick, & very accomodating - She truly added a extra level of comfort to our stay by managing our questions & requests w/ speed, professionalism, & island-style charm. We've visited the islands many times over the years & know a thing or two about quality accommodations - The Dolphin Ohana is now securely amongst our favorite listings as we plan for future island get-aways to Maui. Until next time, Mahalo!

Perfect for our 30th Anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property based on the photos and the photos did not lie! The home was great, the location was great, the host was great! We came after a visit from Oahu and the Big Island and didn't have a lot planned for Maui, but every amenity was available at this property. One touch that I thought was great - we wanted a cooler for our Road to Hana trip, there are two in the closet! Book this - you won't regret it.

Mahalo!

Honeymoon of Dreams

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular place! We stayed in this house for two weeks for our wedding and honeymoon, and we had a phenomenal stay! I think we could live here forever. The space is wonderful for entertaining, which we did often, and for relaxing. It is very close to a great grocery store (be sure to get poke from Foodland) and a good coffee shop (Belle Surf) and so many beaches! All the amenities we could have asked for were available to us. The owners were very accommodating and helpful for everything we needed. We will certainly stay here again when we come back!
