We are a happy couple who like to garden, go to the beach, travel, ski, bike, hike, build houses, do mosaics, create with recycled mediums, cook, dance and just be.

We had a lovely stay in the treehouse. The property is just beautiful, we loved wandering around picking fruit and were lucky enough to find a few coconuts to enjoy! It's a great spot a short walk to a beach and a relatively short drive into town and along the coast where there's so many more beautiful beaches to see. We particularly enjoyed the nights when it rained, cooling us down and meaning we had a restful sleep (woken a few times by the roosters of course!). The mosquitos are plentiful and there were a few holes in the net over the bed that I easily fixed with a few bobby pins! The common area was spacious and the kitchen very clean and had everything we needed. Thank you for the lovely stay, Anthony, you have created a truly special place!
We stayed in the Zen Root and it was unreal. Having huge bay doors open and exposing you to the ocean all night and all day was a nice change from our normal locked down city life experience. The land is located on a great secluded part of the island. You're away from the shops and hotels and feel very close to nature. Animal lovers will appreciate the cats and dogs roaming the property. Anthony and Hami are very nice and accommodating. They have a ton of gear (boogie boards, bikes, a kayak, etc) that is available to borrow. I would definitely recommend this unique spot to anyone looking for a peaceful island getaway.
The stay with Anthony and Hami at the Birdhouse was absolutely amazing! We were there for our honeymoon and it was purely magical waking up to the sound of birds in the morning and a view that makes one think you are in a massive treehouse. It rained every night and the cool breeze blowing through the house was cool and refreshing. The simple community kitchen, the organic garden the friendly guests and the wonderful books available made everything really wholesome and special. But best of all was Anthony and Hami's warmth, hospitality and willingness to share everything with their guests. There was a ton of equipment that was available for everyone - bikes, surf gear, snorkels etc etc. Also was great tips of things to see, secret beaches, places to eat that locals know best. Staying here made the trip a truly special and unique vacation. Dont pass it up!
Anthony and Hami are really special people, and they felt like old friends right away. Their property is out of this world, and words cannot describe how much we loved this place and the experience of staying there. There is no other place we've stayed that ranks up to what we felt there. Mahalo!!!! We would come to Kauai just to stay with you again, and hope we can soon.
This treehouse is wonderful for those wishing to experience the real back country of Hawaii. It is a warm, spiritual place that is away from the hustle of traffic and tourism. My daughter and I spent several days here and would not have traded the experience for anything, not even the Hilton! We were able to enjoy the sounds of the rain and the many creatures of the forest (birds, frogs and of course chickens). Anthony is a wonderful host that is promptly available to assist you with your needs.
Anthony and Hami have created a wonderful utopia under the monkey pods of Kilauea and we are lucky they are sharing it. The buildings were rustic and reasonably clean and comfortable. The grounds were inspiring and calming. The beach is 10 minutes walk and our favorite on the island. Anthony and Hami were both gracious, friendly hosts, and responded promptly to inquiries. The insects and roosters and steep hilly paths are part of the experience, but may not be for everybody. Overall, if you are looking for a unique experience and connection to the environment in relative comfort, this is for you.
Wow - This Ocean House was amazing. There is an incredible view from everywhere in the room - especially when resting on the bed. The bathroom is very large and spacious and uniquely decorated. Staying here was a very different experience from staying in a hotel and we enjoyed it very much. Anthony was a great host. He was very helpful and informative. There was also a small kitchen and refrigerator so we could cook and store our own food. The location was conveniently located midway between several places we visited. Everything was as advertised. I will definitely recommend this place to any friends who visit here in the future. Highly recommended!
We had a wonderful stay at Anthony's zen root. The kids loved the open plan design and big open doors. So close to the great moala'a beach that seems to be ignored by the rest of the tourists. It's a great calm place to stay and relax.
My husband and I stayed for a few days looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax with a full island experience. The listing was exactly what we expected and more! The location is beyond gorgeous and provided us all that we were looking for. There was a beach two minutes away and a wonderful organic smoothie place just down the road. Anthony and Hami were so welcoming and helpful upon our arrival. We have never felt more comfortable and at ease on a vacation, especially for being in the woods. Everything from the room to the facilities was clean and well taken care of. If nature is what you are seeking this is definitely the place!
We spent 10 beautiful days in the Ocean House. Every morning, we'd wake up in bed and look out the window to see the sun rising over Moloa'a Bay, listening to the roosters crowing, the ocean waves roaring, and the breeze through the trees. At night, we'd listen to the geckos cackling and crickets outside, and look up at the stars and moon. Anthony is friendly and helpful, but not invasive in the least. The space is open and beautiful, and rustic. This place isn't for everyone--there are mosquitoes, though the only place they were really bad was by the equipment shack. There are a few small un-screened open windows in the house, so bugs and geckos do come in. The roosters crow at random all through the day. The dogs do occasionally come by for a brief visit. There is also another dwelling below the Ocean House, which we weren't expecting; however, the other guests downstairs and in the house next door were reasonably quiet. We found these things charming and a nice way to subtly reconnect with nature, but if you want an air-tight, air-conditioned, bug-free, and 100% private accommodation, this probably isn't the place for you to stay. For us, it was perfect.
Anthony has hosted many magical community events at his beautiful sanctuary at Moloaa. He generously and happyly shares his space with the community and provides space and time for friends and ohana to connect and have fun together. Anthony has most recently hosted our baby blessing way which was a very special gathering for us and community to come together and celebrate. Anthony has found his perfect soul mate, Hami, and together they are ready to host and share their sanctury with even broader community, the whole world. We are very excited for them and really happy that more people can get to enjoy this very peaceful beautiful sanctuary. Enjoy a ture heaven on earth experience at mattedroots sanctuary with Anthony and Hami!
I had the sublime pleasure of living on this land for 6 months. It is a magical place. The feel is tranquil and nourishing. The land is bursting with fruits and vegetables. This is an example of true Kauai living. Connected to the outdoors with limitless possibility to deepen with nature.
Anthony is a visionary. This space is the culmination of great efforts to bring the dream to fruition. So there is Love and intention in every detail. He is so happy and thrilled to share this vision with all. Living in balance and harmony with each other in nature. He is a bright Light who is so very easy to Love. He has been a great supporter of community events. He and Otaki make a great team offering their talents and passions to all.
Come and visit this sweet gentle space and find yourself completely at home.
Anthony and Otaki have created an amazing Thai style multi zone residential property to share with special guests. Their hospitality is warm and helpful. Moloaa Bay is a welcoming beach and the surroundings between the house and the Bay are uniquely Kauai at its finest.
I have enjoyed the stars, the ocean view, and the gentle winds from the valley there on every visit.
I have visited this property many times. Anthony & Otaki are very gracious hosts - everyone who visits their property seems to share in the light & carefree feeling of the place. It features some of the most uniquely innovative living spaces on the island. Everything is custom built with exquisite quality. Additionally, the grounds are kept immaculately clean and there is a beautiful garden. Moloa'a Bay is within walking distance. In my opinion it's one of the best, most underrated or not known about, beaches on the north shore. Shhh, don't tell too many people ;)
