Nakamura Mortary handled my brothers affairs with kindness and dignity. I was at home in Colorado but everything was seamlessly taken care of by phone and text without me having to travel to Maui. Their care was very much appreciated.

“My sister who lived in Kihei died. My niece and I traveled to Hawaii to take care of arranging my sister's cremation. Nakamura was recommended to us by a friend from Hawaii--"the locals use Nakamura." The staff at Nakamura could not have been more wonderful and helpful during this very stressful time. I highly recommend them. Plus, their prices for a direct cremation were the best.”

“My daughters and I had a prearranged appointment with Teal Lopez Kumai and Charisse Apo-Kauai of Nakamura Mortuary. We were meeting to discuss the preparation and handling of my mother’s recent passing. Both Kumai and Apo-Kauai were tremendously helpful, courteous and beyond professional that I felt I was talking with one of my own family members. Everything was simplified and explained thoroughly. Why 5 stars? These ladies deserve 10 stars ✨ Mahalo Teal and Charisse. Sincerely, Benjamin Nu”

“Many thanks to Carrie, Misty and the staff at Nakamura Mortuary for all they did to help us lay my brother to rest. Carrie was there for us from the ID viewing up through his service. I was so surprised and thankful for Nakamura’s because my brother looked so good and peaceful at his viewing. I truly appreciate Carrie and Misty for going beyond their normal duties, helping us prepare his ashes after the service so we could lay him to rest on that same day. Thank you so very much. We will forever be grateful for your compassion and professionalism. ”

“I can't say enough about Nakamura's. We worked with Chance and Tracy on all the arrangements for the passing of my father. They were so kind and informative of ALL of our available options throughout the process. I never felt like we were being "sold" something. They listened to our needs and delivered us exactly what we needed. Every part of the process went so smoothly and they handled everything with great professionalism. They truly helped us turn an unavoidable tragedy, into peace, comfort, and closure for our ohana. If you are in search of the same, I would highly recommend working with Nakamura's.”

“Thank you so much to Charisse for making this planning during a difficult time, be the easiest thing. Constantly keeping in contact about the funeral, the cost, and how everything would turn out. You made this process easy and gave me a peace of mind during all of it! Thank you to Charisse and chance as well for being amazing funeral directors during the funeral, and making sure everything went smoothly and the Ohana and friends enjoyed ourselves celebrating and remembering uncles life. I appreciate all of it! ”

“I would like to thank two members of your staff, Chance Brown and Kathy Morondos for the help they provided with arrangements for our daughter, Ava Gilson who died in Maui recently. Both individuals were helpful and friendly, while still maintaining the decorum so important at a time like this. Since my wife and I are elderly and live in New Mexico, 4,000 miles away, we had to make all arrangements by phone. Kathy and Chance handled all our concerns and questions with knowledgeable, understandable answers. And, also extremely important to us, they made absolutely no attempt to push us to add or upgrade offered services. Bottom line, they took what we feared would be an administrative nightmare, dealing with police, forensics, etc. and made it quick and painless. Kathy and Chance really appear to be very valuable members of your organization. Thanks to all.”
