We are a local, small business dedicated to providing cleaning services to Oahu.

The success of the business begins with its unique name. Apelila is the Hawaiian word for April; it shows my personal dedication and pride in the business. I have named it after myself, and I take great pride in the integrity of both my name and our services. However, I must say that the most important component of our success is the fantastic team of people who work with me. The business is truly fortunate to have a strong manager who oversees our scheduling and team performance.

Our company is unique in that it is a strong local business

…and our customers love supporting the local Hawaiian business community. We feel it is very important for a business to have a strong connection with its customers, and when you purchase services from a “big, box company” the relationship can feel distant. As a local company, our staff, office and owner are all directly available. We also are unique in that we have geared a specific service focused on “Big Cleans”; this is our answer to the routine spring-cleaning requirement every household has. We offer a suite of services focused specifically on completing those yearly tasks so our customers can spend extra time with their families.

Meet The Team

Gindi French

Gindi French

Gindi grew up in Southern California finally settling in the Pasadena area. She began her career working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory while in high school. To facilitate a career in spacecraft & instrumentation engineering, she attended the State of California Polytechnic University, Pomona as a mechanical engineering major. Ten years of engineering work allowed Gindi to work on several spacecrafts and deep sea instruments fulfilling a dream of exploring extreme environments. Strong participation in student and mentoring programs allowed Gindi to find great fulfillment and the new passion of teaching, which she later pursued as a private tutor. Life’s changes brought Gindi to Hawaii where she consulted for the University of Hawaii’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology and the Hawaii Space Flight Laboratory. She also became involved in the trades first as the office manager of K M Electrical Services and later as manager and backflow tester at B.J. Genz Plumbing LLC. Despite the great opportunity afforded in the trades, Gindi missed working with students, and so she taught courses in Technical Communication at UH Manoa and then opened Rocket Science Tutoring. She is a member of the Hawaii Kai Chamber of Commerce, the Honolulu Business Network-East Oahu, the East Honolulu Breakfast Club and other trade and charitable organizations. Gindi lives in Hawai’i Kai with her three children.
