Your hosts Craig and Valerie Richter
Hi, I am Craig: I was born in Seattle and grew up in Spokane, Washington. I loved sports growing-up, especially tennis. I participated in lots of competitions and later became a tennis coach.
Bonjour, I am Valerie: I was born and grew up in Paris, France and became a sports photographer, working for a Windsurfing Magazine, in the 80's. As a Windsurfing Photographer I traveled around the world following the Windsurfing World Cup, but of all the places my work took me, I loved Maui the best and on Maui I finally settled in 1989.
We are active in our church and in studying the Scripture. When we aren't looking after our guests, we love to play tennis, hike, ski and travel (though not very often since we have a hard time leaving Maui), and Valerie loves Watercolor and Pastel painting and still takes lots of photographs.
We hope you will come and join us in our little paradise,

We were fortunate to stay at the Maui by the Sea cottage for a recent vacation and had an amazing time. The cottage is lovely - clean, stocked with all the amenities you will need and has a deck that overlooks the ocean. There was even fresh picked fruit and banana bread waiting for us when we arrived! Valerie was a great host!
Paia was a great place from which to base our vacation - an easy … See more
