Born and raised in Northern California, I married a 'local haole boy' and became immediately enamored with Kauai, most especially with Anini Beach. After Hurricane Iniki, I did search and rescue with the San Jose Mercury News for 6 weeks, locating 'missing' family members, and delivering tools, building materials, money, and notes of love from Mainland family and friends. I also did fund-raising for the Seniors and children in the little town of Kilauea, making Christmas and the new year a little brighter. At one time, I was considered the Kauai online expert to AOL when AOL was new. I love Kauai and Anini Beach, and enjoy sharing my knowledge and home with those who want a memorable vacation in Paradise with their family.

Sometimes it helps to know who you are doing business with before renting a vacation home for the first time. (A licensed CA Real Estate Broker, BRE 00633697, since 1978) Anini Beach is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. I spent my honeymoon there 40 years ago. It is one of the most romantic places I have ever been to. My husband was born in Honolulu and raised on Kauai, mostly at Anini, and we spent the summers and holidays there with our daughters. Our oldest has twin daughters and they have started their own Anini tradition. It is a wonderful place to spend vacation time with your children, which is what Hawaiian culture is all about. What makes my home unique: Waking with the sun rise, coffee and a walk on the beach, incredible sunsets during most of the summer months, watching for the 'green flash' from our deck, usually no waves on the beach to worry about, helping your little ones feed the crabs at dusk, reef walking at low tide, being able to let your children run on the beach most months without worry. Peaceful relaxation. No steep stairs to climb...
