November 6, 2009

Ok, you may need to be into windsurfing to truly get how cool this is… If you don’t know who Matt Pritchard is – substitute your favorite sport and pick one of its top 5 icons and you’ll get the picture. Anyone who knows the windsurfing world will recognize Matt as a perennial champion in World Wave, Freestyle and Racing Windsurfing Competitions.

Matt Pritchard is a terrific guy and was a great ambassador for windsurfing and Maui with his kindness and generosity with our group on this recent vacation in Maui. You may be wondering – what does this have to do at all with vacation rentals? Of course – I can suggest a connection. Had we been staying in one of the major resorts in the main tourist zones of the island, I don’t think we could have enjoyed this experience. For years, my windsurfing friends and I have been renting beach front vacation rentals on the North Shore of Maui. Because this is a much more quiet part of the island, we have interacted and met with dozens of Maui locals over the years and built some nice friendships. It was through these connections that one of my friends met Matt a few years ago, and the rest is history.

Vacation Rentals allow you to really experience the local community when you vacation in a way that is not usually possible at the larger resorts. For me, some of the best memories from my vacations are based on the people I meet, the adventures we have and the local spots we explore. This most recent trip was no exception – thanks Matt!
