“Beautiful retreat with wonderful hosts, will tell all my friends!”

We just spent one night at the Waiola Guesthouse and Zen Garden. It was clean, tastefully decorated and roomy in the midst of abundant greenery with horse and donkeys grazing in the distance. Because it was on the second floor, I woke up feeling like I had spent the night in a treehouse,with trees waving through the windows.

The hosts were warm, friendly and helpful with many suggestions of good places to visit and restaurant recommendations. We left well-rested after a very comfortable stay feeling like we had made new friends!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Truly outstanding place and hosts, probably one of the best places I have stayed in over 40 years of traveling ( from b & b to 5* + resorts ). If you want quite, super clean, couples retreat. Ideal place for our anniversary.

“Quaint, romantic cottage getaway in paradise.”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Wonderful place to stay with a beautiful tropical country atmosphere. We stayed one week and wished we had been able to stay longer. We'll be back if only to visit the hosts, Wendy and David. They are great people and very helpful with ideas on daily excursions to different places around the island. Waking up to the sunrise, shared with the birds in the garden, the horse and donkeys in the pasture was a soothing retreat. The cottage is equipped with a complete kitchen, washer/dryer.

Beautiful place, beautiful people. We've stayed there for 5 nights an we've been so sad to leave, you feel so comfortable in this house, it is more than peaceful, around the house you see donkeys and a horse. It was beyond perfect for us!!!! Every time again!!!
