“Pretty much perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The Lani Kai cottage was our little piece of paradise for 7 days in January. The place is almost exactly as advertised and presented in the pictures. The only very minor complaint would be that the seating on the lanai is not comfortable. That was largely resolved by moving a couple of kitchen chairs outside to enjoy the sunsets.
I'm not one to sit around doing nothing, I tend to want to go exploring. But on two of our days we did exactly that - nothing - but sit on the lawn chairs under the umbrella, reading and doing crosswords. When you are already enjoying the most beautiful views that Kauai has to offer, when you have all of your amenities at hand, and the glorious sunsets occur on cue at 6:15, well, really, why go anywhere else?
The kitchen is really well stocked with quality appliances and utensils. And a washer and dryer allow you to pack light and do a small load during the week.
While we were there alone as a couple, it is ideally designed for two couples. The second bedroom is bigger and nicer than most masters, with its own walk in shower, and even it's own private entrance out to the street.
There really isn't a single thing that I would change. We will remember our week here with fondness.

“Breathtaking....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our family stayed at Lani Kai Cottage for a week, and we loved every moment of it! The accommodations and amenities were much more than we expected, from the handy telescope to watch sea turtles (and dolphins!), the fishing box and pole...to the beach chairs and cooler....we were set! Not to mention the beautiful and inviting home with a fabulous back yard! The entire team at the Parrish Collection were wonderful and always a phone call away. Mahalo for being a large part of making our Kauai vacation memorable!

“Knock-out Place for two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

This property is directly oceanfront so you hear and see the waves everywhere in the house except the 2nd bedroom, which faces the roadway. No matter, it is still comfortable, too, with a large bed, a TV and a rocking chair. The 2nd bedroom has a private door to the front porch; you can quietly leave the home without disturbing others. It is connected to a full bathroom as well.

Another benefit to this house is the great room adjacent to the kitchen and dining area for TV, reading or just enjoying the ocean view. You can watch the cook in the kitchen and everyone can see the waves. We paid for personal massages at the home, and the massage therapist (a local) said, “That water really does come up close to the house doesn’t it? I’ve never seen that before.”

The house has air conditioning units throughout for those days when the trade winds aren't cooperating.

We found it hard to leave the house and go and do other things because the view alone of the water, especially at high tide, with the sea turtles jumping in and out of the waves, made us feel like we would miss out if we left. We had an aquarium right in our backyard!

The house is perfect for couples, or couples with one or two small children. It even has its own backyard covered in a beautiful carpet-like green grass, great for bare feet, complete with steps down a seawall to the rocks below.

My partner loved the soaking claw-foot tub in the master bedroom, which was great after a day of touring. Parrish provides the best soaps and shampoos, too, from a local organic manufacturer.

Spacious decks and a new gas grill for outdoor cooking complete the picture.

Thank you Parrish Collection!

We would return here just to stay in the house and enjoy the million-dollar views, it’s that nice. Next time, I will go down the seawall steps and explore all the creatures you can see during low tide on the rocks/tide pools.
