About Us

Aloha - My name is Jan Hendrix, and I am the owner and your hostess for the accommodations at West Maui Lodging.

I moved to Maui in 2001. Before this, I lived in the Boulder, CO area for 20 years, and in the Seattle, WA area the previous 10 years. On the mainland, I worked in the Information Technology field. My family comes from New Mexico, where my sister, Connie, still lives. I married Steve Juarez in 2006. He runs a dive shop in Lahaina on Front Street, Hawaiian Rafting Adventures / Dive Maui - www.goscubadivemaui.com. I am a scuba diver so I first met Steve during a visit to Maui in 1994, when I went on a day trip with his dive shop. Since then, we have had a lot of fun diving all over the Pacific Rim - enjoying live aboard dive boats, land-based adventures and logging a lot of air miles. 

When I moved to Maui in 2001, I bought my first property in Launiupoko, West Maui Cottages. It's a great place to live! The two cottages there are now in long term rental. My sister and mom sold some property in New Mexico and we bought our first apartment at the Papakea Resort in 2002. I managed it for the family since I lived here, 'on-island' as we say. There followed several years of buying properties (and making some mistakes with properties by buying in inferior resorts) and renting them as vacation rentals. It was a evolving business - what properties had the best customer satisfaction and for me, what was the best advertising media to get the word out. It slowly grew into what it is today: we own 4 apartments at the Papakea Oceanfront Resort, two at Lahaina Roads, and now, a beautiful handcrafted 3BR/3BA home, the Makila Plantation Home, my second home in the Launiupoko district just south of Lahaina. I am a 'high-touch', responsive and detailed-oriented hostess. Every one of our properties get high ratings in customer satisfaction and I work hard to keep them this way. I am grateful to my loyal repeat guests and I love introducing new clients to the joys of Maui. I enjoy the process of finding the right accommodation for you, helping you optimize your time here and being a part of your cherished memories and experiences.

My mom lives out here now, and my sister visits each year. I really can't imagine living any place else in the world! Maui really is 'No Ka Oi' as we say here, meaning the best, number one, unbeatable. No matter how you say it, it's true!

This is a photo of my sister, my mom and my neice, left to right - what a bunch of cute girls!
