Jeanne Oshima is a retired flight attendant who worked for a major airline for almost 30 years. She knows a lot about hospitality and, after countless layovers in many hotels, she knows what makes for a good night's sleep! She has tried to create a space that she would like to be in -- clean, inviting and comfortable with tasteful furnishings, high thread count cotton sheets, good pillows and fluffy cotton towels. Also a foodie, she has equipped the kitchen with everything one would need to create a home-cooked meal. Originally from Honolulu, she spent most of her adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area where she was based and moved to the Big Island with her husband in 2005 after retiring.
She and her husband, Tom Bailey, live next door to the studio and maintain the property together. Tom is a retired software engineer who was introduced to Hawaii by his wife, Jeanne. Originally from Pennsylvania, he has always enjoyed the outdoors and instantly loved the beauty and peacefulness of Waimea. He is a movie buff who enjoys reading, hiking, bike riding and improving his woodworking skills utilizing Japanese joinery techniques.
