Testimonials and Accolades

What a wonderful find! Everyone has been so helpful and kind. I learned a lot about diving and saw many great things along the way. I consider it quite an honor to have the chance to dive with Ed and the great crew that he has. It’s something I shall remember always, since it has been one of my dreams to dive Hawaii. Thank you all for the opportunity to know you and dive with you. What a find to find people in this world of ours that are so giving but want nothing back other than you to feel welcome. If anyone gets to Ohio, please know that my home is a welcome place for you.

What a gift! I turned “40” while in Hawaii. This was my birthday present my husband gave me. The cottage was a great place to call home. Much better than a resort setting. We enjoyed Scuba diving with Ed & his staff, beautiful fish and beautiful water. The hot chocolate was a nice touch on the night dive. We have with many memories and trinkets to bring back to Wisconsin. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us! PS – Come venture to WI and dive in Lake Michigan & try the ice dive!

Thank you for the wonderful cottage. We really enjoyed our stay here – especially all the Geckos! Thank you for your help in finding good snorkeling and great Sushi & Seafood. We would love to stay here again if we’re lucky enough to come back to Maui!

Our 2nd trip to Maui, 1st time to stay at the cottage – it’s a wonderful place to stay! We loved staying in a quiet neighborhood, drinks out on the deck overlooking the beautiful yard/pond was relaxing! We booked here as Dave had such a positive dive experience with Ed Robinson’s on our 1st trip to Maui in 12/03. He again was impressed with the diving and the crew on this trip. We look forward to our next stay here!

This was our best vacation ever! We wish Ed Robinson was available at all of our dive destinations. The cottage is great! Very secluded and romantic. We are so glad we stayed here. The dives were wonderful. We did 11 dives during our stay. The divemasters/instructors were so knowledgeable about the marine life and were very friendly and professional---and safe. We will definitely dive with you guys next time we are here.

What a great 1st time vacation in Hawaii! Everyone on staff at Ed Robinson’s were totally awesome! The Dive Masters were the best we have been with in the last 5 years of diving. They were all very helpful, friendly & knowledgeable. The cottage was a perfect find – can’t wait to return. There is no doubt we will be telling all our friends about Ed Robinson’s friendly staff, Dive Masters & cottage. Thank you for a wonderful week! P.S. – Scott, Dave, Billy, Will, Ricardo, Amy, Tiff, Mark – you guys really are the BEST!!! Your knowledge & experience helped make this the best trip ever – thank you!!!

Due to our last minute vacation plans (because of health circumstances) we were only able to stay in this quaint cottage for 3 of our 7 nights here. Next time we will be able to plan ahead better and stay here our entire vacation! We appreciate your friendly hospitality, which was like staying at a friend’s guest house! Chuck knew that you were the one’s to dive with, but now that we discovered this cottage – there is no where else to go! See you next year!
Mahalo, Dana & Chuck - Enumclaw, WA

We are so glad that we found this cottage it was more than I expected. We had a great time in Maui. If ever someone gets the chance, diving with Ed Robinson is excellent. Cool sites and friendly staff. We will stay here again next time we come to Maui.
Aloha, Carmen & Bryan - Albuquerque, NM

What can I say but WOW! The cottage was great & the diving was out of this world. Thank you so much for your hospitality, the dive crew Ken, Matt, Ricardo, were great. I leave with very fond memories that will last until the next time I’ll be back.
Aloha & Mahalo, Bob Wynn - Las Vegas, NV

Absolutely fabulous! That is the only way we can describe out vacation to Maui this year. We vacation on Maui every year and this was the best. The cottage is so quiet and quaint. We loved the Koi pond and watching the birds every morning. Thank you for the greatest dive trips! After 13 years of diving with you, everyone continues to amaze us. We saw something new on every dive trip. Evelyn is a great hostess. We look forward to staying here again next year. Mahalo to everyone for making our 25th wedding anniversary so special. Mahalo & with much Aloha,
Jenny & Hank - San Diego, CA

This was out 3rd trip to Maui as a couple (first time we got married here!) and first time we spent at this cottage. Very convenient location for us and the cottage was perfect. Charlie’s been diving with your company for quite some time, so the cottage was a bonus this year. Next time I’m sure we will want to stay here again! Thanks!
Marie and Charlie - San Diego, CA

Thanks so much for 2 weeks in Paradise. Our stay in the cottage was a part of the Adventure! The ERDA crew are the Absolute Best! Most Professional Dive Company on Maui! Thanks to everyone!
C & N Juyak

Where to begin…OK, the diving… The ERDA crew was one of the very best that I’ve been out with in over 31 years of diving. Kudos to Amy, Kim & Bird for their excellent service. Much different than the “scuba police” attitude of another operator on Maui that we went to Lanai with. And the cottage was perfect. A nice change from the busy condos & high rise hotels. Evalyn & the other staff members were always available if we needed them but not “in our faces” all the time. Shore diving was super. What else can we say??? It was an awesome vacation. We’ll certainly recommend E.R.D.A. to our friends when they’re headed to Maui. Aloha! P.S. We appreciated the coffee, candy, fresh flowers, the towels on the boat, the precluded location, flowers & pond and we wish we could stay & do more awesome dives with you!
Susan & Gordon - Vienna, Georgia

Wonderful relaxing stay in this quaint little cottage that made such an enjoyable visit! We had eight memorable dives such as drift, cliff, night and wreck dives. Saw Sharks, Manta Rays, Turtles and loads of fish and plants. Thank you for making a exciting and memorable experience for us.
Steve and Beth - Indianapolis, IN

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home and cottage with us. This was our first experience in Maui and we were warmly welcomed to your area by this lovely cottage & Evalyn. Everything was inviting and comfortable and cozy “like home”! Your garden and pond are a wonderful addition. We will look forward to diving with you on our next visit! Thanks Again!
Candis & David Silvan - Houston, TX

We have had a marvelous time. Coming to Maui and diving with Green Sea Turtles is a dream come true. The cottage is perfect. It is a cozy, private, and full of all the little things that make a stay exceptional. In it’s own quiet way it is more luxurious than the resorts. Diving with Ed Robinson’s crew was exceptional! I work with a Marine Biology Camp in the Bay Island (Honduras) and we structure our camp similarly – logistical & safety briefing, natural history briefing, and hand signals. I felt very at home with the Ed Robinson experience. You are exceptional in every aspect. If any of you would ever like to visit the Caribbean, I would be happy to reciprocate. I can’t think of a better way to discover life in Maui’s waters than with Ed Robinson’s Diving!

“Nothing but the best”, my new husband says as I ask what I should write. This was a wonderful place to spend the first part of our honeymoon. And all the diving with the fantastic crew of Ed Robinson’s was great way to start spending our lives together. May we have many more wonderful times together under water! It is tempting to keep this cottage a secret so we know we can always come back (and better the chances of you not being booked) but this secret is just too good to be kept. So perhaps you will meet more than a few people that will say “Kelly and Colm sent us.” Regardless, thanks for making our stay wonderful. We really enjoyed it! Regards,
Kelly and Colm
