Important! The beautiful homes on the bay that we have rented (one is named "Holy Family" and the other "St. Anne") at the Maris Stella Retreat Center are clean, cozy, and comfortable. But Maris Stella is not the modern retreat center with full amenities you may be used to. Please be aware of the following:
The cost is $150 per bed for both Friday and Saturday night (unless you register early or have a promo code, in which case the cost is only $125).
The rooms don't have room numbers, so we've named them after Tai Chi styles and/or Tai Chi Historical Figures.
(Sat & Sun only, no single nights)
|Cost per Bed - 2 nights||
|Holy Family 2 beds upstairs, Sun Room||$150||$110||2|
|Holy Family 2 beds upstairs, Wu Hao Room||$150||$110||2|

If you wish more hotel-like accomodations, or you wish to reserve only one night of the weekend, below we've listed several nice hotels and motels nearby which you can call to make a reservation. (Again, do not wait. September is "wedding month" on the island, and the hotels and motels fill up rapidly. If you wait until June, you most likely would have to get a room far away, somewhere off the island.)
