Aloha Hospitality

Meet Randy and Lynn:
Your hosts for a relaxing Ka’u bed and breakfast retreat!

Randy and Lynn VanLeeuwen are truly a modern renaissance couple. Their sense of adventure led to their meeting in American Samoa in the South Pacific. Randy was on a decade long world adventure on his sailing vessel “Te Amo”. Lynn had taken a respite from corporate America and was serving two years for the Peace Corp in Tonga, as Computer Services Adviser to the Crown Prince. They had a fairy tale South Pacific romance and have now been happily married for over 20 years.

Randy was born to be a deep sea sport fisherman. It is the second love of his life. “Lake Kona” is what drew him to Hawaii, one of the best deep sea fishing locations in the world. He is also an avid ham radio operator and now lives a sailing life vicariously by assisting with the Pacific Seafarers Net and other local community preparedness nets. He is paying forward the assistance others provided for him when out on the high seas. And when not at the B&B, you will most likely find him on one of our local golf courses.

Lynn is a business coach. She coaches business professionals, executives and entrepreneurs in the areas of sustainability  leadership and is the author of  The Green CEO. Since most of her client meetings are virtual, her work followed her to Hawaii. Lynn finds that Hawaii soothes her “water spirit” and provides a calming influence for her intense work. She is also an artist and finds great inspiration for her painting here. You will see her artwork throughout the B&B.

When they moved to Hawaii, they fell in love with the grandeur and spaciousness of the Leilani Bed & Breakfast. They successfully owned businesses together in the past and decided to make this their newest venture, incorporating all the “loves of their lives” together.

As extensive world travelers themselves, they love to meet new people. They understand the needs of the traveler and provide a very warm and hospitable experience for their guests. They are happy to help with any travel or site seeing questions you may have. They want you to have a marvelous experience in Hawaii and learn to appreciate the island as they do.The warm aloha spirit drew them to this island, and now they naturally embody that in hosting their guests.
