"We stayed in the studio, and found it delightful. The house is a hundred feet or so above the bay, and view is excellent; we watched surf, surfers, and dolphins from the lanai. The immediate surroundings are also delightful; palms waving, plumeria right by the steps to the studio, ti bordering the grass, Hawaiian wild chickens strutting through the yard, beautiful landscaping all around. From the lanai, one has a view of the incredibly green and steep Kauai mountains. 'Anini Beach is only a couple of minutes' drive (or perhaps ten minutes' walk along a paved but narrow road). The property is secluded, so one isn't faced with loud music or wild parties next door (as can happen with the properties right on the beach). The Princeville area (with shops, a good food store, places to eat, and the Princeville Library) is only a couple of miles down the road. Moreover, Ms. Herfurt has thoughtfully provided everything one needs to store supplies and prepare meals in the studio; there is a small refrigerator, a hot plate, a large electric skillet, toaster, coffeemaker (with filters), all necessary cutlery, dishes and glassware. A washing machine and dryer (as well as a vacuum cleaner and broom) are available. The bed is firm. Beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, mats, swim fins, and a beach umbrella are also provided."

"We have had the most memorable honeymoon and can't express how beautiful your home away from home really is! Your hospitality has been wonderful, and sharing your home has offered us a very memorable vacation! We loved the lanai and the views, the hiking, the dolphins, and the refreshing tropical breezes. Everything was perfect and decorated with such wonderful taste. Thanks so much for the memories .... MAHALO!!!"

"Ocean, Ocean, Ocean, Surf, Surf, Surf, Whales, Whales, Whales, Dolphins, Dolphins, Dolphins, View, View, Spectacular Views! What a place! After spending 2 nights at the Hyatt Resort in Poipu and 4 nights at the Princeville Hotel this was the Grand Finale! A place to relax, to enjoy the sounds of the ocean, to appreciate the real beauty of Kauai. And ... a lovely house. Claudia, two words: Thank you! We will be back."
-Carel and Wendy from Redmond, WA
"What a lovely place you have here, Claudia! The perfect place to nurture the spirit and nourish the soul, a truly holy place. The whales, the frolicking dolphins, stormy skies and loud pounding surf, great full moon rise, double rainbows, fabulous views, oodles of birds and bird sounds, tropical surroundings, and the list goes on ... Your generous hospitality was so greatly appreciated, as was the comfort of this wonderful hideaway. I hope to be back."
-Celest from Arcata, CA
"Thank you my Dolphin Spirit and Sister for introducing me to your dolphin friends. It was an experience that I will always keep close to my heart. It was wonderful sharing it with you, and I will always remember our special time together. We loved our stay here. For me it was a "celebration of life". I am so thankful we stayed here."
