Hi everyone, as you have read, my wife Jan and I have recently become empty nesters. Our children have all grown and have moved on to discover their own journeys of life. Our youngest son graduated from High school in 2012 and have since entered college on Oahu.
Boo Hoo now What??? We needed to get a life, again. No more getting the kids up for school, no more homework,soccer practice,football practice, games, excursions, PTA meetings, etc. We were suddenly blessed with time. SO.....
We discovered Airbnb when we went to Indiana for our daughters graduation from Bethel College in May of 2013. We got to visit with our host in Indiana,her name is Jill and she had a beautiful place which was absolutely perfect for our needs. We were so impressed by how it all works that we decided to offer our home and be a host to travelers.
A little about myself an our family. My profile name is Charles but my friends and family call me Chucky or Chuck.Since I have coached Youth sports for over 30 years most of my young acquaintances/ athletes call me Uncle Chuck. I am less then 55 years old, married to a beautiful wife name Jan. Our oldest son is in the Air Force and is stationed in Cambridge, England with his wife and our little precious grandson. Our daughter is doing her doctorate degree in physical therapy at the University of Colorado, Denver and our youngest son is in Oahu attending his first year at the University Of Hawaii at Manoa.
I work at Young Brothers Ltd. it is a shipping and Ocean liner service that transports goods between all the Islands of Hawaii. My current position there is a freight clerk which I totally enjoy. I have worked for Young Brothers since the age of 20 which makes it 34 years, since I'm less then 55 yrs old. We also have a little business that we operate, it's a wholesale business that supplies our retail stores with packaged"Fresh Boiled Peanuts". It's a business that we started a couple of years ago. It's a family thing that we all are involved in.
My wife Jan, and I have been married for 20+ years. She constantly supports me in all our new adventures, like Airbnb. She likes doing the behind the scene activities for our business, the books, the ordering. Like ordering me to do stuff lol. Jan currently works at the University of Hilo and has been there over 5 years. She has been with the DOE ( dept. of education) for 10 yrs.
We love children, we love people, we love serving, and we would love to meet you. Aloha and we hope to one day have you stay at "Our Family Home In Hilo"!!!
