Interaction with guests
In Hawaii, our greeting to friends is, 'Aloha! E komo mai'; Hello! Come in! So, to all who want to know the natural, quiet beauty of Hawaii, I say: 'Welcome! Come in, relax, and enjoy my little gem in paradise”. My kids have grown up and moved on into the world allowing me to open my home to those who are seeking a more pure part in Hawaii. The same dedication and love of the land that caused me to build Open Palms is still with me. I am usually always around the property to greet you into your unit, as well as answer any questions; also just to have a chat! Your unit will include many amenities but if there is anything else you need, please don't hesitate to ask!
