I am the daughter of the owner. I manage this property for my mom, Geraldine. I am currently raising my family on Kauai and my other job is veterinary medicine.
I love both these houses and have lived many years in both of them until I had to move away. I enjoy sharing there uniqueness and beauty with our guests.
