Announcements

Following is the schedule for the upcoming Time Warner/Spectrum digital upgrades:

  1. New installation start date:  11/15/17
  2. New 10 day installation days are:  11/15/17, 11/16/17, 11/17/17, 11/20/17, 11/21/17, 11/22/17, 11/27/17, 11/28/17, 11/29/17 and 11/30/17.
  3. Units “per day” that they estimate to complete.
  4. Access information such as owners/agents need to move heavy furniture TV’s might be on; wall TV’s need to swing out or be removed or a call back will occur.  They won’t remove TV’s.

I requested Spectrum provide a schedule to alleviate owner confusion.  Unfortunately, clarification led to more questions and complaints.

This is one last clarification so owners can more easily identify the day/date of their installation.  This is Spectrum’s revision and we believe it is clear.

Start date is November 15, 2017.  There are 2 working days interrupted by Thanksgiving and installers having Friday off as well.  They will complete the work November 30, 2017.

The schedule below is determined by the method-by-which our wiring lays throughout the building.  Any other questions or concerns, please call Earl Apo at 808-442-4851.

On May 3, 2017, the board received a letter from Oceanic Time Warner Cable (now known as Spectrum) announcing they would not be renewing our bulk cable contract due to a transition island-wide from Analog to Digital cable services.

The new package offers High Definition Entertainment, Music Choices, and 200+ Channels. A list of extended channels will be posted online when installations have begun.

Installation of digital services will begin toward the end of 2017. A schedule will be announced once available. Once the installation schedule is out, the dates are set. If your unit is not available or can’t be accessed, owners can contact Spectrum and schedule installation later. Requested installations will cost you $75. Technicians will need 45-60 minutes in each unit to inspect current cable outlets and install the new converter box and a remote.

Cable upgrades, or providing another converter box for extra outlets in your unit will be the owner’s responsibility.

A follow up email will be sent to all owners once the installation dates have been confirmed.

Current Digital Channel Lineup

Owners and Property Managers

Please use the MV reservation system

GUEST ARRIVALS:

The Maui Vista AOAO (Association Of Apartment Owners) office is happy to assist guests to register if the guest has the reservation paperwork. If they don’t, the office refers to the reservation system for that information.

Some owners and managers still don’t use the AOAO’s reservation system. This leaves your guests stranded, perplexed and angry. Signs with property manager’s phone numbers are posted, but guests most often don’t know who to call.

  • Guests of owners using online websites believe Maui Vista is a hotel with a 24/7 desk; they bring a reservation number with them and think we can access it. Unless you or your agent use the reservation system, the office and security are unable to direct guests.
  • To avoid guests ending up in a hotel, owners and agents need to coordinate efforts to ensure arrivals are either in the system or confirm guests have received unit information prior to arrival and remind them to bring this information with them.
  • Renting units has become a complicated business since the implementation of online Hotel booking websites. It takes extra effort to successfully arrange a smooth arrival for each guest who wants to enjoy their tropical vacation.
  • If you do not have the reservation “link”, haven’t received a password or would like a different password to make it easier, please contact the office at 808-874-5252 or email aoaomv@gmail.com.

SUDS in 1ST FLOOR UNIT

Please remind your guests to use “only” LOW SUDS LAUNDRY SOAP in your washing machines. Recently, we’ve had a number of guests either using regular detergent OR too much of the low suds soap resulting in 1st floor unit toilets to bubble and soap suds developing.

The office has 2 low suds pods available for $1.00 for your guests to use.

An owner offered this photo sample showing suds do surface in the 1st floor units when the wrong detergent is used:

drain_suds_2016-10-21-e1477111357382

As this is an ongoing problem, please take steps to remind all guests of this problem and to be aware that unit washing machines are technically smaller than their machines at home so less soap is advised.

Mahalo from all 1st floor owners!

MOISTURE ALARMS – A SOLUTION?

Many owners, cleaners and agents have found wet sheetrock and/or wet spots on their walls resulting in finding leaks.  An owner purchased a moisture alarm and has recommended that we share this information with you and a potential early detection of leaks.

Moisture alarms placed in strategic areas such as under your kitchen and bathroom sinks, refrigerator, hot water tank area, and under dishwashers may 1) detect leaks before they cause costly water damage; 2) detects moisture before mold can grow; and 3) is an inexpensive safeguard where water or moisture can collect.

There are a number of moisture alarms available on the market (see website link) and they can be found on Home Depot, Lowe’s, or online at Amazon.  Some have alarms that sound when moisture is detected, some more expensive high tech systems can text the owner to notify you when moisture is detected.

Note: Keep in mind that although a water alarm will save you the chore of looking for leaks under sinks and in out of the way places you’ll still need to check on the leak detector(s) periodically to be sure they are working properly.
