We loved staying here! It couldn't have been more perfect for our vacation. Beautiful views of mountain. House was as advertised: great amenities, clean, and has lovely, private yard and decks. Anahola is a scenic and great central location for exploring the island. Jill provided us with a "welcome" of oatmeal and fruit, and a list of farmer's markets which was so helpful. We prefer to stay off the beaten path, and this felt like we had our own private place in Kauai for a week. Enjoyed the blu-ray player and Hawaiian music as well. We got a kick out of the roosters - and as was said, there are rescue dogs next door that bark a lot (the noise wasn't a problem for us, but we are city folk). All in all a great stay...hope to be back!
The Healing Cottage is a beautiful place to stay. Jill and Craig were helpful in providing directions to the house. The house was secluded from the neighbors and surrounded by tropical plants. We didn't have any problems with the space. An air conditioner had just been installed prior to our arrival but we did not use it. We preferred to have the windows open and fans going. Very comfortable living arrangement! We used ear plugs at night to drown out the rescue dog house howling and the roosters.
The healing cottage was as described in the listing, spacious, clean, and well stocked with cooking supplies, information, and recreational equipment. The host contacted us before the trip to make sure that we had good directions to the place and stopped by to make sure we didn't have questions and needs.
However, this idyllic setting was marred by the presence of a rescue dog house located adjacent to the property. This group of dogs (10-12 at one count) barked from 2:00 onward almost every night of our stay; rain was the only thing that seemed to quiet them. Needless to say, little sleep was had most nights.
This cottage had a fantastic location "off the beaten path" with a great mountain view. Very private, so would especially recommend this cottage for those who want to "get away from it all" for a while. Functional Wi-Fi and T.V. for those who want to stay "plugged in", kitchen utensils and appliances for those who cook. Plenty of fans.
Loved hearing the occasional chirping of birds. Never had an issue with the local dogs and even enjoyed driving by one of the neighbor dogs which always seemed to have a perpetual "smile" on its face...made us laugh.
Hope to return someday in the future. Thanks.
The cottage is a perfect location just enough off the beaten path but close enough to local markets, breakfast spots, etc. This location in Anahola is so central on Kauai, it's a great excursion launch pad. The grounds are really nice and the mountain views spectacular. I really enjoyed the large porch in the front as well as the outdoor sun in the back and side yards. The yard is large but also very private. Jill gives a great Lomi Lomi massage as well. Give it a try !
The house lacked little in the way of amenities- grill pots and pans made cooking a decent meal possible, we ate at the house most nights. Place was clean and comfortable. If you are not a dog lover this may not be the place for you, neighbors had about 7 dogs that were good about making themselves known, one night was a little restless with the sounds of barking all night long. Other than that one issue though everything was tip top, with a nice mountain view and a wonderfully manicured lawn, we found it to be quite a pleasant base of operations for our Kauai vacation.
