Aloha! My name is Mike Lyons, better known a “Kauai’s Go To Guy”, and my mission is simple – to graciously share first class Hawaiian hospitality with all visitors coming to our beautiful Kauai. I do it all.
Kid day beginnings
~Dad was a gregarious Hawaiian. Grandma welcomed everyone for dinner to her shoreline home in Kapaa. Mom gathered any stranger she met for chats. Ukulele’s were busted out, beautiful Hawaiian harmonies carried throughout the lanai. Meals were a celebration. We’d pack up the station wagon and take new found friends to Haena, Cold Pond, Polihale for a day of amazing adventures…
I was immersed from a very early age to sharing and giving. Everyone was a friend, life is for adventure.
Each year as school ended for summer break, i couldnt wait to get a job as a hotel bell man, a pool attendant, a surf instructor or a boat crew member. Didnt matter the position. I was in my element. Being paid to just be me, energetic and always happy, led me to knowing how i wanted to live my life.
It’s a privilege and my eternal pleasure to share my lifestyle with guests! i am beyond fortunate to live and thrive on my home, sharing all that i know. As Kauais nicest local vacation expert, my first hand on the ground knowledge comes from decades of experiencing all the adventures, eateries, activities. 365 days of living a true tropical lifestyle loaded with sea, trails, sand and fun translates perfectly into sharing that immense knowledge with you!
They say work what you love and live that way loud!
Its all i’ve done and what i do graciously…
. My background
As a part Hawaiian born and raised native, island themes and traditions seasoned my character and upbringing on Kauai and Oahu.
Values were taught and morals instilled by my family example. Especially grandma! Compassion and giving of oneself are qualities that resonate throughout my life. My wisdom comes from having tried all of the islands outdoor venues, regular visits to the many restaurants and knowing where the most beautiful scenery can be found. I was a dedicated Maui county fire fighter/EMT handling extreme situations on Molokai, Lanai and Maui. As an Oahu county life guard, sharing my love of the sea meant remaining vigilant of hazards.
I also worked for many years as general manager and property caretaker for Kauai’s largest and most exclusive north shore estate, rented by high profile Hollywood celebrities and VIP families. Merging enthusiasm and my local wisdom with thorough competence, i fostered trusted relationships with many Hollywood families, world dignitaries and business leaders. My adept handling of their special requests and gracious discretion has kept my portfolio full of returning trusted friends and guests.
During high school on Oahu working at“ Outrigger Hotels” as a concierge , with“Blue Hawaiian” helicopter as a concierge, Kauai’s “Na Pali Adventures” private boat tours first mate, “Princeville Ranch Adventures” guide and escort, private escort/guide/concierge for Sony Studios, locations scout/production assistance for Kauai made movies, limousine driver, and many more companies. My extensive experiences in all facets of upscale hospitality allows me to flourish within my community in offering authentic vacation moments for all.
