They love to share the island with visitors. Mililani is a poet and writer who is very interested in Hawaiian culture. She is a hula student. Don is a science teacher who is interested in physiology and anatomy. His current interest besides cattle ranching is enlarging his biodiesel production.
Both have traveled to continental USA, Japan, Great Britain, Italy, and France. They like to travel and learn more about the lifestyles of the everyday people. As hosts, they would like to show guests what the aloha spirit is like outside of the Waikiki stereotype.
