Zen Root was a great place to stay, the most unique I have ever visited on vacation. The open air feeling and the views of the ocean were fantastic. I really enjoyed the outdoor-style experience of the space, the way it is decorated, and the way it is lit in the evenings. Anthony and Hami were very gracious hosts (as we their dogs Pali and Mogley). I had a great time!
When we arrived Anthony and Hami greeted us with a coconut and tour of the area. Our treehouse was wonderful, listening to nature at night. The bed was really comfortable. I felt very comfortable on the property and really enjoyed getting to know everyone. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes nature and wants a relaxed, beautiful experience.
Anthony and Hami we're the most pleasant hosts! This was my first AirBnB experience and we left with a great impression. We especially liked the welcoming common room space where we met other guests on the property with shared appreciation for Anthony and Hami's accommodations. If you're looking for a peaceful stay in the midst of Kauai's natural beauty, the Thai Garden house will not disappoint!
Very nice place. Easy check in / check out. All as advertised, coconuts are juicy, cats are fun & purry. Make sure to talk to the hosts, you'll learn things about the island that they won't tell you at the hotels.
Could get a little chilly in the birdhouse in winter - make sure you have the ability to sleep in layers :)
One of the most creative and thoughtfully-designed spaces I've stayed in. Our baby daughter loved crawling around the open layout. I loved the claw foot tub and huge wooden doors that opened a whole wall to sea breezes. My husband loved walking to the beach in the morning and Anthony and Hami's sweet dogs. Our whole stay was so peaceful and relaxing and the location was perfect. Close to Larsen's and Moloa'a beaches, the amazing Moloa'a fruit and smoothie stand, and an easy distance down to Kapaa to grab poke at Pono fish market or Hanalei Bay for surfing. To address comments in previous reviews: we had no issues with bugs or neighbor noise. I think if you bring a laid back Aloha spirit to this special place, it will give back to you in so many ways...
The Thai Garden house was such an awesome adventure for my wife and I! The story behind the entire property is really special and Anthony and Hami provide a true old Hawaii experience. When we come back to Kauai, we will be reaching back out to Anthony to stay again. Big thumbs up from upstate NY!! Aloha
This place was heavenly. It was completely serene and totally relaxing. The house is only screened in and as night came the whole area smelled sweet like jasmine. The sound of the forest was also calming and I slept beautifully. Very, very early all the animals started poking around making noises (frogs, birds, etc.). As the sun rose everything really came to life and eventually the roosters, birds and all sorts of other sounds got me right out of bed. Some might have found it disturbing, but I loved waking up that way. I slowly awoke along with everything around me. The kitchen and bathroom accommodations are sparse, but completely sufficient and useful. We ate wonderfully with all the fresh food from the garden and trees on the property. We enjoyed kale, tomatoes, bok choy, nasturtium, passion fruit, papaya, starfruit, loquats, mint, basil and coconuts. We also got some great lemons and oranges every day from an unattended fruit stand down the road. I will note that I expected it to be a little "fancier" than it was. However, I was not in the least bit disappointed- it just wasn't totally what I expected (the photoshopped pictures online made it look a little different). However, as it turned out, I enjoyed staying here far, far more than I thought I would. My wife's only complaint was that she was a little weirded out that the shower was in the kitchen where other people were present and the only thing separating them was a shower curtain. I was not bothered by it and even enjoyed the outdoor, open shower (though the water outside was cold). Overall, we both give this place two really big thumbs up.
Anthonys place is awesome! There is one common room where you can Cook and Hang out with the others! One private room like ours is attached to the common room and the others are split around the garden which is huge! We enjoyed our stay to the fullest!
Anthony and hami were wonderful hosts. The room was an amazing open air experience. It felt like we were in Bali. It had everything we could want and Anthony made sure we knew all the best tips for the area. They even let us play with Paul and mogli as we were homesick for our own dog!
Wonderful guests to host. Warm, friendly, responsive, and gracious. Thoughtful people who took well care of our place....Hope to see them in Hawaii one day.
Anthony was a most wonderful guest.
Super responsible, tidy, and took such good care of th shack! We had good communication around his stay, though we didn't meet, I could tell he and his mate appreciated the cottage and area. Welcome back anytime.
Anthony and Hami were delightful guests: friendly, respectful, considerate, appreciative. Hosting them was a pleasure!
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 ;)
