Hey, I'm Babette!
Hawaii · Member since July 2011

Busy retiree from Texas. Founder and Director of the Indian Classical Music Circle of Hawaii. I moved to this part of the Big Island over ten years ago. In the photo, I am holding a tanpura. Also master musicians Parashuram Bhandari with sarangi, and Danny Birch with sarod.

I built the Cottage for friends and family to stay when they visit here. I began welcoming guests as a vacation rental in 2005.

B, what a charming & lovely way to experience Hawaii for the first time! I love the "lonely Puna roads." It was just what I needed to relax and refresh my spirit. Thank you for your suggestions, your stories and your music. I hope you will visit me on the west coast sometime and I hope I can get back here to visit you again. Aloha until then, E -- July 2009

You are a delight and so is your cottage. I hope you will clear the calendar when I next call, because this will be my place every year! -- K, March 2009

It has been a true pleasure to experience your aloha spirit and your beautiful cottage. Thank you for the stunning orchids. Can't wait til our next visit. Mahalo. -- E+B , NYC 2008
