Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great little cabin, we enjoyed the privacy from the plants on all sides. The ceiling rafters and beams were beautiful, and there was a very pleasant arrangement of the studio space. We left a fan on through the night to help cover the rooster and dog exclamations, but the flora more than made up for the fauna.

  • We had a chance to spend 3 weeks at the Healing Cottage. It was a wonderful time with a lot of great experiences. Jill and Craig were great hosts who were accessible, but provided us lots of privacy.

    The highlights:
    -The grounds are beautiful. We spent quite a bit of time on Kauai and Jill and Craig take better care of this property than 99% of the rest of the island.
    -The home and location feel safe, secure, and secluded. It's close to the main road, but far from any crowded locations.
    -The house has all the necessities we needed for an extended stay, including a well prepped kitchen, laundry, full sized fridge, and bathroom.
    -Centrally located: It's easy to get to both the Southern and Northern sides of the island.
    -Gear to use: Jill and Craig provide some basic snorkel gear, boogie boards, towels, beach chairs, and a cooler. This saved us from having to buy or rent the same stuff.
    -Cable TV, Fans, and Noise machine provided. There's a fair number of dogs and roosters on nearby properties, and though the fans and noise machine don't completely drown them out, they block most of it.

    Things to consider:
    -The home is located in the tropics, surrounded by dense foliage. As such, there are bugs. Not bugs because of any uncleanliness or lack of attention from the owners -- just because of its geographic location.
    -The internet worked most of the time, but there were a couple occasions where it dropped off. I was working remotely, so I was online more than the avg. person would be, so it may not even be noticed by other tenants. Jill and Craig worked to resolve the issue and asked for feedback on the steps they took to improve it.
    -Being in a rural environment, there are some inevitable noises nearby. Dogs, roosters, and a cow can be heard from the cottage. If you're a light sleeper, this might be something to consider (there are fans and a noise machine provided).

  • If you like being off the beaten path, Jill's cottage is for you. My wife and I could not have enjoyed staying at Jill and Craig's cottage any more than we did. We felt sad as we drove away from it for the last time. Jill does an awesome job of making you feel welcome. The place is secluded, comfortable, and safe. You wake up in the shadow of a gorgeous mountain every morning. Make contact with Jill about a massage, because she is awesome. This was the PERFECT place to spend our honeymoon. Couldn't be happier.

  • Thanks again & mahalo dear Jill and Craig for our stay in your beautiful cottage on our favorite hawaiian island Kauai! Just arrived from our grey winter cold home country, we felt like in paradise in view of the cottage, nestled in a wonderful lush tropical garden property framed by the Kalalea Mounain range! The cottage provides everything what you need and it is well and lovely creative decorated with the paintings of Jill! The cottage offers plenty of space, with a very well equipped kitchen, kingsize bed, laundry, beach and snorkel gear (also body boards!),a comfy sofa and a wonderful lanai, from where i loved the sight of the little bananas in the tree! There is also a little "secret" sunny place with two chairs in the backyard, accessible from the bedroom door! A bit i only missed a table outside on the lanai to have breakfast or dinner there! The location is perfect to reach all the wonderful places to be on Kauai and in Kappa´a you will get everything you need and also cool shopping :)! Please don´t be so blind like us, because we´ve always missed the entrance from the main streeet in the nights... maybe it only was us ;)) ! The only thing that disappointed us was that Jill was´nt there over christmas, because we really wanted to book her famous lomi lomi massage! So go there and get your chance and also to enjoy this wonderful place - we really recommend it! Cheers ;)

  • This place is heaven. It's down a little dirt road and surrounded by tropical plants, so it's super private. The place itself is spotless and has everything you could possibly need - towels, beach towels, beach chairs, full kitchen and BBQ. It also had a blender so we made fresh fruit smoothies every morning with produce we bought at the farmers market. So nice to be able to make your own breakfast! I thought it was the perfect location too, because it's between the north and the south, so you never have to drive more than 30 minutes to get where you want. Also, the local beaches nearby were the BEST. No tourists and white sand. Laretta was a great host and I highly recommend you book one of her massages!

  • Great place! The cottage is located centrally between East/North Shore but still out of the way. The cottage has everything - from dishes and cookware to towels and snorkel gear. Jill and Craig were very friendly and communication was always quick. Would definitely stay here again!

    Thanks for the great review, we would be delighted to have you any time,much aloha, Jill and Craig

  • We had a great time at the healing cottage. This is a great place if you want to stay in a nice quiet spot and be in the middle of nature. Jill provides everything you need from household items to guide books and even snorkel gear.
    The house has great access to the north shore (20 min drive) and kappa is close for food/tourist options. Would definitely come again.

    Response from Jill,Craig & Family:

    Hi again, please return to reality. My rules in writing was no over-night guests,I let mom stay for FREE because I was trying to help out a young couple but you got sneaky with your extra guest and the place was disgusting and you did not check out at 10:00 I charged you for one guest, sorry kids, this a business.. I cant control external factors like roosters and the neighbors dogs. if you believe in your heart I can then I fear you will be greatly disappointed in others as well. Be kind and responsible and sensible. Good luck,thanks for returning the books you took.

  • The Healing Cottage was perfect. I stayed there for 6 days with my new husband on our honeymoon. We didn't want to stay in a posh touristy resort (not our thing) so I'm very glad we found Jill's place on Air Bnb. It is private, peaceful, in a beautiful and convenient location and well-equipped with everything you need for cooking etc. We had such a lovely time. Also, Jill's massages are wonderful - highly recommended!

  • We spent 8 nights at the cottage and wish we could have stayed longer! The only regret is that I never made time to book a massage with Jill! The house is the perfect secluded getaway for two people - awesome scenery, incredibly clean, very well stocked (including beach essentials, guidebooks and local recs), great shower, bed and sofa. The location itself is great and actually fairly central to both North and South Shore sites, beaches and towns. We drove/explored the entire island, but it never felt like we were in the car for an extended amount of time. Jill was great to work with as well - fast replies to questions and sent detailed directions and instructions through a week prior to our trip. Definitely would recommend staying here!!!
