We stayed at Taj's place for two nights and it was very pleasant. Everything is pretty much as described. The space is beautiful, clean and spacious. Taj gives great recommendations for restaurants and snorkeling spots. We didn't spend much time at the house, as we were out exploring the nearby north shore sites; but when we returned exhausted from the day's adventures, it was great to relax on the daybed on the upstairs lanai, which is also a great place to watch the sunrise with your morning coffee. We enjoyed meeting the other travelers from around the world. If you are on a budget, access to the full kitchen will help you save money by not having to eat out. The outdoor shower is another nice touch.
We stayed for 11 days in a room downstairs (Rose/Ginger), which had a door to the outside terrace. The house has a nice atmosphere and pretty much fits the description. It is clean and spacious. There were always some other travelers staying at the house at any given time but everyone (including the hosts) was kind of doing their own thing and stayed pretty much independent. Not much interaction unless we initiated it. The garden is very beautiful and the terrace with tables has a great view. To get around, you need a car (that's true for the whole island really). Overall, a very good experience
Taj and Mark's incredible positive energy can be felt throughout the stunning property and my entire time on the Island was enhanced knowing that I had this space to come home to every day! From my space, I can here the birds singing their morning songs and nature awakening. The room is large and the bed comfortable, with a sliding door to the rear deck and a spectacular view. The house is very large and everyone has their own refrigerator and kitchen access. Great interaction with others staying here and Taj & Mark also took me out paddling and exploring water caves, etc. Very special. I had a healing session with Taj, who is an incredible healer as well and highly suggest some energy work while staying. Her sound room is fantastic! They are amazing hosts, very laid back and engaging and I would highly recommend this blissful space to anyone looking for a personal experience rather than a hotel while visiting the North Shore. Other guests were fantastic and there is alot of outdoor space, decks and lounging area to hang out, etc. Minutes from Kilauea Town, Anini, Hanalei & NaPali hiking trails and miles of endless beaches to explore! Will stay with Taj and Mark FOR SURE upon returning to the Island! Super special time)
Taj and Marc are very gracious and welcoming hosts. Loved staying at their beautiful place which they rightfully dub a sanctuary.
Check in and out was seamless and the location was great for getting to Nepali in the west or down the eastern coast. Highly recommended.
Two nights were not enough to stay with Taj and Mark. We were made at home right as we arrived. The location is perfect and pretty and the house is amazing. I didn't have enough time to spend at home since I had hikes planned out during the day but I will definitely go back when I'm on Kauai next!
I stayed for a week and I can reaffirm the positive experiences listed in other reviews. Although I did not spend a lot of time on property, the hosts are very accommodating and have a great setup. Refrigerators are right outside your room, indoor and outdoor showers, and laundry is extremely convenient. Other guests were very cool as well. Overall a great experience with an ideal location with access to multiple health food stores, numerous beaches close by and restaurants in either direction
We only got to stay at Taj's place for two nights but I wish it had been longer. The house is beautiful and the room that we got was wonderful with a great view and balcony. We got to talk a bit with Taj and Mark and they both are a lot of fun to chat with. We also enjoyed talking with the other guests. The house is very conducive to relaxed easy interaction. We didn't get a chance to partake of Taj's healing treatments which was a disappoint to us but our schedule was just too tight. We would love to spend more time there on future visits.
