"As we were planning our new vacation home at Maui Meadows near Wailea last year, we came across Tervola Designs on Houzz and really loved her work. We met Cindy at her store at Lahaina. She understood our needs and preferences well and made really good recommendations. We retained her service to design out kitchen and baths on the spot. She supplied the cabinets and flooring (bamboo flooring for the house and tiles for the baths and backsplashes).
Cindy's design is simple, elegant, and yet warm. On her recommendation, we decided to use green soapstone for the counter-tops and they turned out great. They have a sheen of lustrous patina and very different from the usual glossy granite counter-tops.
Cindy also helped with designing out tongue and groove stained cedar ceiling and worked with my architect on room layouts. The house is now completed and beautiful.
Throughout the kitchen and bath construction process, Cindy stopped by the job site several times and oversaw the delivery of materials and ensures the cabinets were installed correctly.
Since we lived thousands of miles away, it was very important to have a designer who looked after our interests on the site.
Cindy was always prompt with her communication on email, phone calls, or video conferences.
The materials she supplied are of good quality and prices are reasonable.
I highly recommend Cindy if you need to remodel your kitchen and baths or build new ones. I hope I can take some pictures and upload them soon".

"Cindy was recommended to my wife and I by Robert Myers, our realtor who represents many high end properties in Kaanapali. We were absolutely delighted working with her. She offered great inputs/suggestions which we followed. Over time we have owned 4 different units in the Masters and I was formerly the association President so i am very familiar with many properties.
As od=f todays date, 11/16, I can be candid and what we got from Tervola Designs is the "primo" condo with a kitchen second to none and 2 bathrooms that are the best in the Masters development. We had no issues and we would readily recommend." Nov. 2016

"We are building a home on Maui and interviewed several design professionals to assist us with our kitchen and bathrooms designs. We choose Cindy because she actually listened to us from our first meeting and totally put us at ease. Her suggestions and help during this whole process has been invaluable. She has been able to help us through some difficult design issues and has come up with great solutions. She not only is creative but always thinks of the practicality of her designs and gives you both the pros and cons. That has been most helpful to stay within budget. She does leave the final decision to her clients as that is how it should be.
She has many product lines to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about them all. She is not afraid to explore new vendors so her work always seems fresh and not cookie cutter. Her ability to work with our architect, builder and subs has always been remarkable as this is not always an easy task. She has met every deadline and answered any and all questions in a timely manner which has been a breath of fresh air especially here on Maui.
We would certainly recommend Cindy Tervola to any one building or remodeling here on Maui." Nov. 2014

She came in with the best floor plans and designs, she will help you with everything including ordering sinks and tiles and cabinets to how many drawers you need, etc. You can not do it alone...You NEED HER!!! My kitchen is awesome and I notice all the time little things she suggested then that now really matter. Even when her work was done, she came to my place (after hours) to help me with bathroom details and other thought and concerns I had outside of the kitchen. She cares about her work and her eye for detail is spot on! You will be lucky to have her on your team:-)" Oct. 2013
