The 'Elima Room #5 has a king bed, large windows with great view, en suite bath with double shower, keyed entrance, tv, and continental breakfast. The shared amenities include a large covered lanai with distant mountain/ocean views, free Wi fi, hot tub spa, ping pong, gas grill/burner, microwave, coffee/tea maker/ refrigerator, and washer/dryer. Close to beaches and many attractions on Kauai's north shore.
Hilary's home is not only perfectly located, central to where you want to be, but also in a beautiful setting.
The experience in the Elima room makes you feel as if you're right there in the outdoors. The large wrap-around window brings the outside right in. The wake-up experience is so great, overlooking the rolling hills. The room was spotless clean - I immediately felt so at home - not to mention the double-shower.
The catered breakfast has everything you need, and she maintains her kitchen/lounge in a perfect state - and the lanai is large enough for multiple families to enjoy breakfast at once.
In the evening you can relax under the stars, with the sounds of the rushing surf from the nearby coastline.
For me next stay on the island, I'll definitely want to stay here again.
Her home is definitely a retreat worthwhile adding to you list. You'll feel refreshed, and ready to go for your next adventure.
Thank you Hilary
Hilary´s Retreat is a wonderful place. Perfect location, very secluded, beautiful kitchen, living room and lanai. Room #5 has amazing panorama windows.
I wish we would´ve stayed longer, such a gem!
This was a wonderful stay in all ways!
The room was terrific, lovely, bright, clean physically and energetically.
Breakfast of fresh tropical fruit, breads, yogurt, milk, granola, coffee, tea and more was was always available.
The dining area was beautiful, large and fully equipped with quality and tasteful everything needed for meals!
The whole area was beautiful, well kept with a large covered inside and outside area to use and enjoy including a large grill and great hot tub.
Little things also made this a most enjoyable stay like really great bath and beach towels. There is snorkeling gear and boogie boards available for use at no charge.
Hilary was available, helpful and attentive to every detail of maintenance and upkeep of this lovely place.
I am really looking forward to returning again soon!!!
My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Hilary's place very much. The room was very clean, had a beautiful green view and very comfortable. We especially loved the jacuzzi at night, looking up to the stars!! We highly recommend her place for relaxing stay in Kauai.
The Kauai Retreat center is a great place and I really enjoyed staying here. It's a great location between Kapaa and Priceville/Hanalei in the quite countryside. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to other people.
Hilary Anne's place was lovely - clean, relaxing, nicely furnished, and located on a pretty property just a bit out of town. I didn't meet Hilary Anne, but she was very responsive to questions sent via text and very generously and kindly accommodating. I'd highly recommend a stay here to anyone!
The house is beautiful and has everything you need. It was closer to Hanalei than I thought, and there are also nice beaches accross the big road. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out in the hot tub looking at the stars. Being able to do laundry and using the huge kitchen was a great help for us.
thanks Hilary for an amazing stay at your house, you (and Coleen) were so welcoming and friendly! the location is perfect - sea view, big terrace and garden, fully equipped kitchen, everything there to feel at home and an incredible value for money. Highly recommended to stay there!!
What a great place that exceeded all our expectations. Quite, rural feeling neighborhood yet central to the North Coast. The room and bed was super comfortable and Hilary made as feel so at home we hated to leave. Met some wonderful people staying there which made things even better. Sitting in the hot tub and looking at the stars was a perfect way to relax after a day of hiking.
THANK YOU HILLARY you made our vacation so easy and hassle free. Cisco and Hampton also helped us out a ton those two guys are so awesome.
We were very impressed with the island and our lodging. We were thinking of going the resort or hotel root. We are so happy we went to this retreat/guesthouse/B&B.
Some Highlights: Access to the kitchen, free breakfast. Beach towels and chairs. Snorkels fins and boogie boards. If we were at a resort or rented on our own it could cost have cost us $20 to $40 extra a day.
We used the grill and ping pong table at night but didn't get a chance to use the hot tub but it looks pretty sweet. This place is pretty amazing and in a convenient location to any of the beaches on the island. You're about equal distant from Hanalei Bay to Kappa town. Where a lot of tours launch from. Its about a five minute drive to the closest beach. Summer waves in the North shore are really calm perfect for snorkeling, swimming and body boarding. If you're looking for bigger surf in the summer you're pretty close to Donkey Beach and others on the eastern side of the Island close to Kappa town.
When I come back to Kauai I will definitively be staying here.
