About the owner: I'm Kili and in addition to being a wife and involved mother of three, I have been the director of Maui's Hawaiian language immersion preschool, Punana Leo o Maui, since 1993. I also operate our bed and breakfast cottage. My husband Michael is a championship windsurfer and has owned his own painting and contracting company here since 1988. He has also studied chant and hula. Our three children- Kiani, Kalia and Kuakea- were born and raised in the islands. All were schooled in the Hawaiian language immersion program and are fluent Hawaiian language speakers. Kiani is a budding Hawaiian language educator and an accomplished hula dancer. Kalia is a star volleyball player and Kuakea is the artist of our family. Even our dog has a Hawaiian name: I`i.
