Twenty-five years ago Jeudi had a vision: To provide a Home Keeping and Visitor service that would expand and improve on all existing formats . . . The idea was simple; to return to a time when we all interacted on a more human level, and by adding a little something that is all to rare these days; a smile, and a sense of “Ohana” to every transaction. It was with this modest premise that ‘Your Friend in Hawaii’ was born.


You will feel the difference from the outset. All calls and communications will be handled by Jeudi or one of her staff, not some artificially pleasant virtual human voice providing you a sequence of numbers to press. In a world that has become increasingly faceless, Your Friend In Hawaii strives to put the “person” back in personal. You now have a friend in the islands who, when needed, will take care of your home, your car, and your property while you are away, and in doing so provide the welcome sense of security and well-being that a trusted member of the family would bring.

Or, if you are a traveler, she will add the element of Aloha to your visit by establishing a one- on- one relationship, tailoring your itinerary to provide a unique and personalized facet to your stay.Jeudi

As a happy resident of Kona for over twenty-five years, Jeudi has extensive and intimate knowledge of the Big Island, giving her a clear advantage in directing you towards the activities you may wish to take part in; and by sharing this expertise, she hopes to make your vacation a first-class experience.

It is Jeudi’s firm belief that having a friend on the Island can make the difference between adequate and awesome, and you will find that is this conviction that will help make your stay on our Island comfortable, as well as unforgettable . . . welcome home!



Your Friend in Hawaii is a full service company. We specialize in home keeping, so whether you are a part- or full-time resident of the Big Island, we can tend to your home while you’re away with weekly or monthly inspections that are as simple as a walk-thru to check for water leaks and burnt out light bulbs, to a more all-inclusive full clean and prep for incoming guests. But showing our visitors the treasures of the Big Island is our true passion. With either complete or partial vacation planning, as well as concierge services, Your Friend in Hawaii works with you, helping you to plan your vacation so you may experience fully all the beautiful Island of Hawaii has to offer.
