We had great communication from Hilary on finding the place. We loved our stay. The place was very spacious and clean, with great amenities and yummy snacks. A tranquil location complete with adorable kitty. Very close to the main road into Hanalei, but no traffic sounds, just birds! Fun ping pong table, just use a bit of bug spray in the evening.... highly recommend this place! Thanks, Hilary :)
This retreat was in a great location! It was in a central location which allowed us easy access to the North Shore and other parts of the island which included the South and Western parts. The facility was extremely clean with great views! I will definitely be staying here again when I come back to Kauai:-)
Room no 3 is really nice and the bathroom is really good too! I can really recommend a stay at Hilary's house, it is so calm with a nice backyard in the middle of green fields.
When we arrived and during our stay Hilary was not there, but she left us a number to call in emergency. So, overall it was a really nice stay!
Staying at Hilary's retreat was a blissful experience. It is peacefully situated beside a beautiful ranch, where we could watch the sunset dip behind the cow grazed farmland and the mountains of Kauai. Look to the other direction and you have an idyllic view of the Pacific.
The sleeping quarters are clean and true to what is presented in the pictures. We woke up each day and indulged in the spread of fruits, cereals and fresh coffee that she thoughtfully provides. Then we would head to one of the near by beaches to which Hillary provides everything you need for a perfect beach day.
I would happily stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting the island.
You do need a car to get here, but then you should rent a car no matter where you stay in Kauai as there is much to see and do all over the island.
Perfect location near north shore activities, with amazing views to the ocean and to the cows grazing next store. Best part was the wonderful peace the place has...very calming, with great hot tub to sit and look at the stars. Entirely different Kauai experience than staying in a resort. Hillary is great, and quick to respond if you have questions. Great place!
This was our 8th trip to Kauai in the past decade but our first staying at an AirBnB. The Retreat Center 'Ekolu was exactly as depicted on the web site. Hilary was extremely sensitive to our needs and a very responsive host. The thing that impressed us most was the cleanliness of the accommodations. This is not an easy accomplishment with people checking in and out on a daily basis, coming from the beach or muddy hiking trails. Breakfast items were replenished daily and included breakfast juices, fresh fruit, assorted yogurts, pastries and bagels, coffee, tea and numerous cereal and granola selections. The kitchen contained every appliance and cookware you could possibly need. Perhaps most importantly, after a day of hiking the beds proved to be extremely comfortable. The Retreat is perfectly located whether you intend to spend the majority of your time on the north side of the island or the east-southeast areas.
