We stayed in the Valley View room, which host Darcy said they were new to renting. The room looked like it was usually occupied by one of the family members who had vacated it for our use (lots of family photos, books, albums around). Pros of B&B and room: 1. Run by the friendly Darcy and her lovely family, plus... More

The Secret Falls Retreat was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay on our recent trip to Kauai. Everything is beautiful and well maintained. We felt so welcome and comfortable. The only thing we would change would be to stay longer! We're already making plans to come back again!

We were going to stay at one of the chain resorts in Lihue, but they were overpriced at the time I was checking rates. I came across Secret Falls Retreat and called the owner to find out availability since their website was being revised. She was incredibly helpful and we quickly decided to stay. Her manager called us and we... More

Secret Falls Retreat etched permanent place in my heart. How many hotels, hostels or other BnBs can you say you've made a personal, emotional connection with? Beyond the insurmountable beauty and views, the people, Darcy and her family are the reasons why this wonderful home is the best place to stay on the island. Do yourself a favor, skip the... More

This is a different kind of place all together. It is NOT an isolated experience in a large hotel where everyone's room faces the vast expanse of the ocean. You are booking a room at a large house on the edge of the jungle where the owners and hosts care so deeply about your stay that it will seem like... More

I am so inclined to give this property a bad review but only with one reason in mind: to keep everyone away and have it all for ourselves in the future!! I cannot do that as would not be fair for the owners or host. I do extensive research before our travels and I have to say that everything I... More

We visited Kauai as our 4th island. After staying at condos and hotels, we found Secret Falls Retreat a truly charming, private, and relaxing place to stay. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood and we would definitely stay there again! The view from the pool area is just amazing. My daughter loved the pool and hot tub. In... More

What you are really paying for with this property is the view and the privacy. This view is truly amazing and the location on the island is perfect. The trip was terrific because we were a big group and rented the entire property so it was our own private little oasis. Lily was nice and we were pretty much left... More

My husband and I stayed for a week. We loved it! The view was incredible! The rooms were clean and cozy. The hosts, Lily and Michael were the best! We didn't really research our trip beforehand so they were a ton of help with planning, finding our way... We will definitely stay there again.

We booked the King's room as the cheaper rooms were taken - this was definitely worth the price increase for the privacy and lanai. View was more spectacular in person than the pictures suggest. Hot tub is nicely secluded. Kitchen is fully equipped including 6 burner range for making your own meals. Breakfast is only served one day during your... More
