Owner / Founder
Resort Stay was started by Joyce on the island of Kauai. A native of Pittsburgh and mother of an 18-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter, she is happy to provide great accommodations in amazing locations for families, business travelers, couples and more. She is also a licensed private investigator in Hawaii and specializes in locating legal heirs and birth families of adoptees. She and her husband enjoy traveling to visit family on the West Coast and places to ski/snowboard/fish.
David joined the Resort Stay team at the beginning of 2016. Born and raised in New Jersey, David attended Penn State University and stayed on the east coast for a few additional years before coming to his senses and moving to Kauai in 2009. His background is mainly sports journalism, having worked for NBA.com, Major League Baseball and other online and print media. He is still a columnist for The Garden Island newspaper, Kauai’s only daily publication. When not on the clock or on deadline, David loves travel, the beach, playing basketball, poker and often misunderstood sarcasm.
Victoria joined Resort Stay shortly after its inception in 2012 and loves sending guests on fabulous Resort Stays. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Victoria highly values travel. She has traveled the world with her husband, son, and daughter, to the far corners of India, Wales, Indonesia, and Costa Rica. Jungles, cities, and beaches, with a large preference for the tropical! She and her family currently reside on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii. When not working, Victoria loves gardening, walking the beautiful beaches on the island, and spending time with her family.
Accounting / Reservations Associate
Austin Rex was born and raised on Kauai. So far he’s our only native. He graduated from University of Hawaii West Oahu in 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Accounting. He likes keeping Resort Stay organized and our accounting in check. When not helping us with the little minutiae, he enjoys connecting guests to their dream vacations. He is also the Worship Leader and Administrator at Calvary Chapel North Shore. When not working, he loves to surf, play music, and help his fiancé, Taylor, taste test cake for their upcoming wedding in March.
Mikey was born in Phoenix but was raised in the White Mountains of Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Management. During his time at Northern Arizona University, he decided to broaden his horizons and spent a year abroad in Oviedo, Spain. Shortly after graduating college, he moved to Kauai with his then girlfriend who is a local Hawaiian. He and Colbie were married on Jan. 18, 2020. When not working, Mikey is traveling the world, hiking the many trails around Kauai, playing basketball, and testing his luck on the golf course.
Fun Fact! One of the key factors in hiring Mikey was his innate ability to understand David’s sarcasm.
