I am Native Hawaiian and Bill calls Santa Cruz, CA his hometown. We are teachers who love returning home to our Pu'uhonua, or place of refuge, whenever we are not working overseas. We love spending every minute at our Maiko Home, working on home improvement projects, cooking and catching up with our Hawaiian and California Ohana and friends whenever we are at home. We travel extensively since our jobs take us to some of the most unique places in the world, but have to admit, there truly is no place like this anywhere else-cool calm breezes off our deck, the native birds singing in Ohi'a trees by day and coqui tree frogs chirping at night. We have awesome family, neighbors, and friends nearby to also help with any needs you may have during your stay in our home.
We'll do all we can to communicate quickly, though since we work overseas, please anticipate 12-18 hours for us to reply from our time zones and to make your stay one to remember at Pu'uhonua, or our favorite place of refuge. E Komo Mai!
