We live on an island in WA State, Fox Island, near Gig Harbor, 45 miles SW of Seattle. Anne is a former English/Spanish teacher and deposition court reporter, and Wes is a former elementary teacher and director of instructional technology in Tacoma Public Schools, the same district where he went to school. Papakea Resort has been special to me, Anne, since I first rented there in 1979 when I was teaching English. A student’s parents owned a unit there. I had lived on O’ahu as a child, and the spirit of Aloha was everywhere for me on Maui. Papakea soon became an annual vacation spot. Wes and I married in 1997, and we bought our condo in 1998. It is our second home now, and we want your visits to be special, comfortable, and memorable in the very best ways.
