brand’s condominium hotel and vacation rental operations. Celebrating a 75-year legacy in hospitality, the company holds significant expertise in the vacation rental space and now manages nearly 2,400 vacation homes in Hawaii. Vacation rental units have continued to rise in popularity across the Hawaiian Islands – accounting for 19 percent of all accommodations in the destination and marking a 13.5 percent increase since 2019. With this demand, Aqua-Aston Hospitality created this new position to grow the brand’s condominium hotel and vacation rental program.

“We see a unique opportunity to continue expanding our Aqua-Aston Hospitality portfolio of professionally managed condo accommodations across the Hawaiian Islands,” said Bob Berges, regional vice president of operations for Aqua-Aston Hospitality. “This new position signifies Aqua-Aston Hospitality’s increased investment in our condominium hotel and vacation rental program, and Garziano’s long-standing tenure at the brand and impressive background in owner services are truly invaluable for this role.”

As senior manager of business development, Garziano is responsible for recruiting property owners to Aqua-Aston Hospitality’s and sister company Maui Condo & Home’s rental programs. She works closely with property owner service representatives and general managers across the brand’s portfolio to achieve acquisition goals and maintain relationships with owners, real estate businesses, and realtors through incentive programs. Garziano is tasked with conducting in-depth research and providing strategic insight into achieving short- and long-term sales revenue objectives. She also helps lead the program’s promotional material development, alongside the sales, marketing, and communication teams.

Graziano brings 19 years of experience to her senior leadership title, as well as a diversified background in owner relations, hotel operations, revenue management, marketing strategy, and positioning. Having held numerous positions with Aqua-Aston Hospitality since 2004 – at Aston Paki Maui, Aston at Papakea Resort, and Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas – she has developed an in-depth understanding of the company and what it takes to help grow the condominium hotel and vacation rental program. In her most recent post as operations manager at Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas, Graziano grew the property’s rental program numbers for more than five years despite industry-wide challenges related to the pandemic and other market conditions.

A Maui-native, Garziano’s vision for her new role is rooted in Hawaiian values of mutual trust and respect. She brings this ethos into each business relationship, whether it is with owners or internal team members, to ensure high-level service in an ever-changing market. For homeowners considering renting their vacation home, Aqua-Aston Hospitality offers full-service property management including support for marketing, advertising, financial expertise, and creating a memorable guest experience.
