MEET YOUR GUIDES

THE WASSON FAMILY

We are a multicultural local family raised near the North Shore of Oahu in a town called Kahuku. We are a family of seven and one dog, Snuggles. Our family loves to travel, entertain and provide the aloha spirit through healthy and positive interaction with everyone we meet.

We are committed to share the aloha spirit through our unique cultural experiences where ever we go. We would be happy to help you with suggestions for local attractions, restaurants, activities, and exciting destinations nearby. We love connecting with individuals worldwide by teaching and sharing the blended cultural experiences and values we’ve learned throughout our lives. And most of all, share our family’s meaning of the word “ALOHA” Authentic, Loving, Open, Happy, and Adventurous.

"Gen and Henny were the absolute best! We truly feel like we got a local experience and not the typical touristy trip. They went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel welcome and give us ideas for things to do around the island. Their daughters, son and dog were awesome too! We will definitely be back!”

“This place was absolutely perfect! Genevieve and her family are the most generous hosts. It’s a great little space, and we especially loved the beach necessities they had there for us to use. And it was such a great place to stay away from the touristy hubs! 100% recommend.”
