This is such a special place to stay. Breathtaking views of country and ocean, accommodations perfectly appointed and comfortable with everything you need, and grounds are serene and peaceful. Hilary was lovely to talk with and so accommodating. Close to everything North Shore has to offer and not far from airport at all - beautiful drive. We can't wait to visit again. Thank you Hilary!
The place was an amazing stay. Hilary made us, and every guest, feel welcomed. The room and bathroom facilities were in amazing conditions, we felt very much at home during our stay. Everything was very clean. One note, with room 2, even with curtains closed, the room was illuminated with light by 7:30AM. It didn't bother us too much as we were waking up early anyway but if you want to sleep in late you might want room 1.
The complimentary breakfast range was amongst the best we've ever experienced at a BnB, there was something for everyone -- including fresh fruit (bananas, pineapple, papaya, etc), cereal, organic granola, Greek yoghurt, bagels, guava jam, orange juice, milk (whole, non-fat, and almond), snack bars, and more! With the full kitchen we were able to make our own dinners every night because they had everything available.
The location was situated nicely at the northern half of the island, we could access Lihue, Hanalei, and all the beaches with such ease. It's also positioned nicely out of the way of any major cities, or traffic, that you could drive back and relax in such a serene environment.
If we ever want to stay in Kauai, we definitely will want to stay here again.
Unfortunately I had to cut short my trip due to emergency but I had a wonderful experience for the one day that I spent at the place. The house is nice and secluded. Our room was perfect. The kitchen was equipped with all the essentials. Would love to come back here when I get a chance.
We felt the environment of the Kauai Retreat was relaxing, serene, and as the home is surrounded by lush nature, provided privacy and a sense of the grandeur and beauty that is the north coast of Kauai. It's situated in an opportune location as it's just a short drive to many nearby island sites, including Anini Beach, Kilauea Lighthouse, and Hanalei Bay.
Our room offered a large, comfortable bed, light-filled windows with an awesome view; the outdoor patio area was a great open-air seating and recreation option, and the kitchen had a variety of serve-your-own breakfast items. We especially appreciated the convenience of the snorkeling equipment and laundry facilities that were available.
We enjoyed our stay here, and we would recommend it for a variety of travelers, whether couples or families. Thanks for the clean, accessible, and affordable accommodations!
Beautiful lovely retreat-like home. Check-in was a breeze. We had an amazing stay, woke up to gorgeous backview of the the island. I would definately stay here again if I was ever in Kauai again!
Hilary made us feel so incredibly welcomed from anything from communicating with us very quickly to the fresh fruits and snacks she leaves out daily. It made us feel welcomed knowing we can pick and chose from options. Even Molly the cat was super welcoming! Miss you Molly!
The location of the home is in north shore area. Maybe a 10-15 minute drive to Hanalei. It's the greenest, prettiest, part the island. The most beautiful sunset we saw was on the property. It is the most peaceful place and the pictures are exact! There is so much greenery around it allows you to slow down and enjoy the beauty of Kauai. The roosters do start early so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
Loved the hot tub during the time of sun down. The colors are surreal. Kilauea is a super quaint and cute town with a couple good foodie spots you must go to (Fish Market especially!).
The bathroom is your own private bathroom but it's not connected to your bedroom. Room and bathroom is spacious and noise level during the time we stayed was perfectly fine (minus roosters) which I grew to love :)
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone interested staying on the north shore area.
I feel fortunate that this was my first airbnb experience. Everything we needed: beach towels, kitchen, breakfast with fresh fruit, clean & pleasant room with plenty of space, wifi, and lots of common area as well (indoor and outside). Hilary puts a lot of care and attention into the space and it shows. I would recommend this as an excellent place to stay while exploring Kauai. Short drive to Kalelea juice bar and on to Anahola beach. We can't wait to visit again. Do note that there are roosters (like all of Kauai) and cows nearby, and you do hear some noise from the neighboring room. These were not really an issue for us, but for someone who is a light sleeper looking for a quiet retreat, this might not be ideal.
