Retreat in Mahalo's beautiful, private sound healing temple.
Use outdoor fire circles if you know how. In winter, manage the wood stove.
Love the comfy futon, off-the-grid energy & composting toilet: no running water, no eating in temple.
For bathing, use caretaker's bath in main house ($10, inc. towels) or Colonial Spa: pool, hot tub, saunas, shower, 5 mi. away, $15/day.
Bedding (pillows, sheets, blankets) bring own or ask.
Use caretaker's kitchen: $15/day
Great eateries are 1-2 miles away!

Luz Elena was very thoughtful and communicative. The temple is a very unique and special place, and I really appreciated how much she made my stepdaughter feel welcomed and special.

The Mahalo Art Center is by far a special place and one of the most peaceful air bnbs I have stayed in. Luz has put so much love and intentionality to creating a great space. Luz herself is also such a special human and great host. I can’t thank her enough for making my solo trip…

Dear lovely Robbie - and all who read this - the place - a paradise FOR SURE - is on the market. It takes more money and wherewithal than I have, financially, to run this piece of paradise. I'm trusting the process and praying that people with money will realize that artists are necessary for healthy living :) I will continue to love, share, envision and create as much as possible - as we artists all must do in order to shine and make the world more beautiful! :)
