I'm so glad we found Kahiwa during our trip to Maui. The fact that she's a mom and long-time childcare professional helped to ease our concerns about introducing our toddlers to a new sitter in a new environment. She was super communicative beforehand, answered all our questions, and also asked all the right ones to get to know about the kids. When she arrived the boys warmed up to her immediately and they also loved the toys and books she brought (which was extra helpful since we hadn't brought a ton of options from home). I appreciated the photo updates throughout the evening (lots of smiles!) and coming back to a tidy apartment with a full report on their time together. I highly recommend Kahiwa!
