Tony S. Vericella

President

I love creating special memories with my wife, Dana, and our triplets Catherine, Joseph, and Nicholas, and my dear friends. I "live to eat", enjoy travel and learning about other cultures, and golf when I can. I'm passionate about Hawai‘i, the individuality of each of the Islands, and the Hawaiian host culture that connects us. Look forward to sharing our Hawai‘i! +1.808.589.5537

Charlene Davé

Director of Global Sales

It goes without saying that my greatest joy is spending time with my husband and our 5 children! I LOVE international travel and it has been a lifelong pursuit. I have lived in many countries outside the U.S. and enjoy the adventure of travel and how it expands your horizons and way of thinking. More importantly, how it allows you to create a personal culture which comes from an amalgamation of the many cultures you are exposed to by living and traveling the world. +1.808.888.6787

Born and raised in Hawai‘i, I have a growing passion for finding the undiscovered adventures and experiences my home has to offer. After returning to Hawai‘i from the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, I have come to understand the privilege it has been to call paradise my home, and how fortunate I am to have the opportunity to show you our Hawai‘i. With a young, open mind and willingness to venture out, I have found a love for unearthing the hidden treasures of Hawai‘i and finding unique experiences just for you. +1.808.589.5508
