Anne Pawsat-Dressler has had a successful career which included streamlining the computer operations of a Manhattan office of a large financial company, managing the auction purchases worth millions of dollars of clients at Christie’s in London, and producing a documentary film. Off from work one thing she loved doing was to travel.
Her many travelling experiences also exposed her to the world of high-end travelers. A visit to Hawaii made her decide she wanted to live there. What better way to earn a living then than to engage in a business that involved travel and do it in a place where she wanted to stay.
She established Hawaii Hideaways in 2004. She noted there wasn’t a market for luxury vacation in Hawaii that provided excellent service for the high-end traveler. Only 24 years of age when she started the business, she initially had some difficulty in convincing luxury homeowners to let their multi-million property be a part of her inventory of homes for rent.
Over time she eventually succeeded and her company is now a leader in providing luxury vacations in Hawaii. The company offers rental properties with 24 hour concierge services. You can have luaus, massages, limousine service, charter jets, to chartered yacht.
Through a great idea and a lot of hard work, Anne has the best of both worlds. She has a business she loves (and earning her millions), in place that she wants to stay for the rest of her life.
