From our guests...
  • There are no words to describe how amazing this past weekend was...Everything was splendid, and the energy and enthusiasm with which you all made our event so spectacular was VERY apparent.

    There is a Hebrew word "Dayenu," often said at Passover, which translates loosely to "It would have been enough." My mother said this to me over the weekend, and I think it rings true. "Had EarthRise offered only it's amazing natural beauty, Dayenu!" Our wedding would have been fantastic with only the gorgeous setting of the EarthRise property.... but you all made it so much more.

    —All our best, Jonah & Julia

    This is an awesome facility – the energetics are balanced and so supportive of the work we embraced. The food is exquisite and personnel supportive and very service oriented. Thank you/Mahalo.

    —Rick McDonald

    The Retreat Center is beautiful. The staff were so friendly and accommodating to our needs We all especially enjoyed & appreciated the loving care that went into creating delicious feasts for each meal. They were all individuals communicating from the hearts.
