Hi jeanniemarieaz! Our wedding has come and gone now but we had an amazing time, and the venue was AWESOME!!!! I'm sorry to hear that you're having a difficult time with your coordinator/venue option and trust me when I say that it can be extremely stressfull, but it will all be soooo worth it!
Who is your WC? I just know that only some of the Maui WCs are familiar with this property... and it is a smaller venue, which worked out great for us as we had 35 guests. It fit our group very comfortably, and I believe they stated that their allowance is up to 40 wedding guests. 18 of us also stayed at that preoperty so we got a really good feel for the place! Pics don't even do it justice to be honest with you!
And the event fee we paid was $500, I'm not sure if we got this rate because we also booked the house as our accommodation or what the going event fee is now, but also keep in mind that there is a cleaning fee- I think a couple hundred dollars.
How many guests are you expecting? When is your wedding??
