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,
