Perfect home for pure peace and luxury. Quite part of town, close enough to walk to a restaurant and beaches. The home is right on the water! The reef doesn't allow you to swim directly in front the home. But the pool makes us for it. Less then a block walk to a swimming beach.
Can't wait to stay again!!
Home is as close to perfect as it gets! Private, gorgeous setting in paradise, right on the ocean. We loved watching the sea turtles play mere feet away. Excellent amenities such as Blaze grill right by the pool. We would recommend 100% and would love to stay again. Parrish thought of everything and went above and beyond compared to other hosts. We'd definitely work with them again, too. 10 out of 10.
Natalie S. says
Location and ocean view.
Beautiful house, and very clean and well-appointed. Peaceful. Great view of the ocean and proximity to malls etc.
Kari D. says
We stayed in this luxurious home over the Christmas holiday. The home was beautiful, very well maintained. The kitchen was lovely and had everything we could possibly need. The oceanfront pool was our favorite. The little touches, i.e., the Mai Tais, the welcome basket full of goodies, the well stocked essentials such as extra towels, pool towels and toys, was appreciated. There was a power outage while we were there and it caused the pool pump to quit working. We called Parish Kauai's office and within a couple of hours we had two maintenance personnel at our door to fix it. Just excellent service! We will definitely stay with Parish Kauai again in the future.
Jenna D. says
The home is almost exactly as pictured. The view is impressively stunning and waking up to the morning sunrise and crashing waves each morning was priceless. The location is convenient to many stores and restaurants. The only negatives: hammock was broken and not replaced, the blender appeared to have never been cleaned properly and there was no hot tub (not a big negative because we wouldn't have used it anyway). The pool was a big hit with everyone (especially the 5 y/o). The kitchen and outdoor grill made family breakfasts and dinners wonderful. The welcome gift basket was a nice surprise. And we REALLY want the Mai Tai recipe!!
Mahalo Jenna for your five-star review and comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed the home and its location. We agree nothing beats waking up to the sounds of the ocean. We are sorry that the hammock was not available during your stay. After frequently replacing it because of the constant wind and sun exposure, the owners have decided not to replace the hammock again. We also double-checked our listing to be sure - the home is not advertised or photographed as having a hot tub, but it is great knowing how much your ohana enjoyed the pool. We cannot wait to welcome you back again, and we'll be sure to have those Mai Tais ready for you. Aloha and a hui hou.
Beautiful home with spectacular views! The pool was wonderful too and our family had a great stay! This was our third time staying with Parrish and we appreciate their commitment for excellence.
The best trip we have had on Kauai since 1998 when we took our first trip. The space was quiet, relaxing and all the amenities for cooking and enjoying the space.
Lindsey, Chicago, IL says
This place is exquisite. Walking distance to at least 4 beaches. Beautiful grounds. Amazing views. The house’s layout is incredibly effective and efficient. Working with Parrish was smooth sailing. We will miss the roosters!
Mahalo Lindsey for your 5-star review! We appreciated your enthusiastic and thoughtful comments. We are happy that you enjoyed the home and its location. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Jane L. says
I’ve rented many Hawaiian vacation properties across the islands, all with beautiful views, but watching and hearing the surf crash on the shore as we relaxed by the pool, brought a calming and gentle rhythm to our breathing. Very relaxing. Also, really appreciated the quality furniture and decor. Really appreciated the early check-in and the fact that Jaime was willing to do the walk-thru with my daughter and husband, who were part of our party, while we were doing last minute grocery shopping. We had a problem with the shower in the guest bathroom between the 2 guest rooms. The shower water pooled on the bathroom floor at every shower. We washed and dried the floor mat daily because it got so soggy.
Sean R. says
Pool, proximity to ocean, A/C
Jamie was our host for Kauai Kai and was fantastic on check-in and responsive when we had an issue.
Michael M. says
The house was incredible and the location second to none. Loved the A/C and pool!!
Again, another great stay with TPC. Thanks so much for your help in booking a family vacation of a lifetime!! Jamie, our host, was always available with help. She was especially helpful during the island-wide power outage and subsequent rolling blackouts. We also let Jamie know about several minor issues that we encountered that did not need immediate attention. Jamie forwarded these to the property manager. A shower was broken the first night but was fixed the next day.
Beautiful Views of the Poipu Coastline(from the pool)!
Backyard is spectacular! We spent most evenings in the pool, watching the sun drop, drinking adult beverages, while turtles swam by. One night we sat out and watched the stars slowly fill the entire sky. House is well equipped(pots, plates, silverware, towels, etc) and even has some water toys to use(boogie boards, etc). We loved the location, about a mile away from the resorts. Inside the home, the beds were adequate, and there were some nice spaces to find solitude when necessary. Overall, a great rental. Mahalo!
Mahalo Kirk for your 5-star review and comments. Sounds like a perfect way to enjoy the oceanfront backyard. Aloha and look forward to hosting you again.
Location, turtles, dolphins, spaciousness, comfort
Jamie and Crystal were very helpful. The owners had apparently just left Kauai Kai and – reasonably – had some things that needed to be done. We didn’t know about those – like taking out a palm tree and some silliness about window blinds. We should have been told about the tree, and at the price we’re paying I didn’t expect to have routine checking or maintenance done during our stay, as it can be intrusive. VERY minor and reported only at the end: window onto the lanai from small bathroom sticks and was not possible for me to close all the way. No big thing.
Mahalo Steve for the 5-star review and comments. We do again apologize on the timing on the tree removal. For safety, it needed to go and the vendor was only available that day. Again, our apologizes for the disruption. Mahalo for the note on the window, we will get that addressed. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha
Mahalo Scott and Karen for your review, comments and understanding. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Scott & Karen says
Everything was great except the air conditioning in the master bedroom. Your team took care of it.
Mahalo Scott for the 5-star review. We again apologize on the AC and glad we were able to get it resolved quickly. Aloha and we look forward to hosting you again soon.
Janine H. says
Loved our stay.
Everything went very smoothly and have no suggestions for improvement. The website is excellent. The accommodations were first class and loved having a pool right on the beach. Couldn’t have been better.
Good job Mahalo
Christie Volkner very professional and responsive. Front gate did not close.
Mahalo Alan for your review and comments. We will get the gate looked at. A hui hou.
Tonya S. says
Having stayed previously at a Parrish property we knew the level of service and properties would be great.
The ease of the process and properties are always top notch. Christie was great as was the rep I worked with to book/pay for the rental. The pool and hot tub were awesome! At checkout we reported a slight issue with one of the stove burners and the dishwasher, nothing major and surely nothing that impacted the enjoyment of our stay.
Mahalo nui loa for the 5-star review , comments and most of all for your being a loyal repeat guest. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha
Allison D. says
Location was wonderful and house totally met our needs.
Two minor ones, a light that randomly turned several times and in the bathroom, the shower valve was very finicky. Asked that they look into it after our departure. Please email me if you have properties on the Big Island.
Mahalo Allison for your review. We are not on the Big Island yet, but certainly will let you know if that changes. Aloha!
Sara Jane U. says
Mai tais were delicious
There were no measuring cups in the kitchen except liquid cups . The air conditioning in the master bedroom was not working.
Mahalo Sara Jane for your review. We will add some measuring cups and are working on the AC. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Clarence H. says
When the service mowed the yard he blew the grass in the pool. We spent couple hours trying to clean it out!!
Mahalo Clarence for your review and note on the landscaping crew (ARGH!). We will get on them again…we are so sorry for the inconvenience. Mahalo for helping.
Jenny C. says
Christie was amazing!She made it very easy and answered all of my questions and concerns efficiently and quickly. Our chef that we chose that was recommended by the Parrish Collection was JP Filion was amazing. His food was superb and his professionalism was so greatly appreciated. The chef definitely made the most positive impact on our trip and we loved it. The helicopter company was also very nice and curteous. On the other hand the fishing company that was recommended was not the best, not very friendly and the morning of we were told that the bathroom was broken on the boat and didn’t give us any other option than to “go in a bucket”. The catamaran company was also not as polite and the captain made us feel a little uncomfortable while he was telling us how the other catamaran companies have hurt him financially.
Mahalo Jenny for your 5-star review and comments. We are glad you enjoyed JP (the chef) as is a favorite of ours. We so sorry about the fishing and sailing excursions…neither is what we would expect. We will pass this on to their management. Again, it was a pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you again soon. A hui hou.
We stayed in this home for about 9 days with our family group of seven. My mother-in-law loved hearing the ocean every night while she slept. We spent most evenings out on the porch/pool deck looking at the stars. The home is very close to the “little” boat harbor in Poipu & a quick walk to the Spouting Horn. If you are more ambitious the newer mall is 1.4 miles away; which has great restaurants and shops. Having A/C was great & the kitchen is well stocked, we cooked breakfast everyday. We have stayed in Kauai many times over the last 25 years and this was a great location for the ages of our kids (20’s). Beach is really not swimmer friendly -but a short drive will take you down to Kiahunna, which is one of the best beaches on the south shore for surfing, swimming, or sand boarding.
Diane C. says
Beautiful home, great location
POWER WENT OUT IN NEIGHBORHOOD, CALLED FOR ASSISTANCE TO TURN OFF BEEPING ON ALARM. MAHALO CHRISTIE!
Poipu Yellow House
Excellent house for a family or group of friends. Very well provisioned and the pool was a great gathering place. I highly recommend this place. It’s a nice location in a neighborhood but close to everything you need. You
Cecilia N. says
Chris. He was very responsive. Cable only worked the first night.
Mahalo Celia for your 5-star review. I see you called on your last day about the cable and we corrected…we are so sorry if it was any longer. Mahalo again and we look forward to hosting you on your next trip.
Thomas M. says
The home was lovely and well equipped. The location of being able to see whales, dolphins and sea turtles daily was incredible. Natalie was wonderful to deal with.
Lezlie W. says
I'm totally happy!!!
Thank you Amber and Natalie. Had to completely take apart the grill and clean out each burner before we could get it to work.
Mahalo Lezlie for your 5-star review and handywork. We apologize that we missed the BBQ and again thank you for fixing. Aloha
Rita K. says
The floor plan I asked for was not accurate to the bedroom layout. Floor plans should be readily available and accurate for each property. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience. Natalie met us at the house for check-in.
Sue & Jim says
Overall our week was wonderful -lucky to stay in such a beautiful home overlooking the ocean!
Natalie met us with mai tais upon arrival & arranged that we could check in early! This was a great help since we had shopped at Costco & needed to refrigerate numerous items. From early on in the planning phases she was very patient with us emailing us with updates etc. She also arranged a great deal with the Poipu Athletic Club-family membership $100 for the week which my husband & kids used everyday! If we were doing another joint family vacation, would definitley consider this location!
Lloyd G. says
George R. says
Could not have been better!
Every item at the house was as advertised. Natalie and Keith were very helpful. Thanks!
The house was in a beautiful location, well stocked, very comfortable. A treat!
Your web site is detailed and informative and Natalie was a big help in finding the right house. One area we were disappointed was the inability to control the temperature of the house on site. It was not written into the contract that this was the situation but simply stated the house had AC. We expected, for the quality of the house, to be able to have control of the temperature at night.
Vincent F. says
Amazing location and great upkeep of the house.
The pictures of the house on the website do not give the ocean’s closeness to the house. It may be work having a short video. The air-condition thermostat control governors were annoying and made it uncomfortable at times. Also, the fan controls were difficult to operate. Some help with them would have been helpful. The concierge services before we arrived were very helpful.
Steve C. says
The house, Natalie, the office staff, the seamless experience.
Location, location, location. And the house is enormously comfortable. Hard to beat sitting on the lanai watching turtles by the rocks and cavorting whales offshore. Natalie took good care of us with an intro to the area (although we’d been at the house before) and followed up with phone calls twice during our stay to make sure things were going well and asking if there was anything she could do to make our stay better.
Mahalo Steve for your review and being a loyal repeat guest. We look forward to hosting you again on your next trip to Kauai.
Rhea B. says
The shower in the master bath had very low water pressure. We ended up using the other shower.
Mahalo Rhea for the 5-star review. We will be sure to get the shower looked at and adjusted. Aloha
Sara Jane U. says
We have already reserved this beautiful home for next year!
Our problems were tended to immediately. thank you
Mahalo Sara Jane. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
Thanks for a great vacation.
Location, Location, Location. Alarm kept going off. Was serviced once while we were there. Range needs maintenance, one burned does not work and cannot use both ovens at once. Fridge is getting old, did not keep things cold enough for us.
Mahalo Jim for your review and comments. We will double check the range and frig to ensure all is in working order. Mahalo for the heads up. Aloha
Emily F. says
Wonderful experience yet very pricey
Alarm beeping consistently. The issue was quickly fixed when we called the number on the alarm.
Darlene H. says
Ambience of ocean and pool. Lanai.
Awesome property and location to navigate around Kauai and enjoy the island. Property had everything needed to take care of daily living. Natalie Koziarski responded in timely manner with all requests regarding things of interest to the family and handled bookings. Made appropriate referrals for services being sought during stay. Called prior to departure to seek feedback and answered questions relative to check out and other items. Very personable and attentive to requests. Only down side was responsibility of checking in 2 homes within same time frame.
The location and the house itself was unbelievable!!! ???? The onsite staff and support was wonderful.
It was more beautiful than the pictures even showed!! The only two minor issues were the ongoing issue with hot water heater in master bath and lack of hot water on that side of house for three days. From the sounds of it, the water heater needs to be replaced. The maintenance person had to come out twice to reset it which was a bit inconvenient. The only other issue was the fact that we were told that the house would be cleaned onTuesday, one week into our 10 day visit. The housekeepers did come on Tuesday, however all that was done was refilling toilet paper, adding new towels and making beds. None of the bathrooms were cleaned, kitchen wasn’t cleaned, windows, etc… Just didn’t meet our expectations of “house cleaning”.
Mahalo Trish for your 5-star review and comments. We apologize on the maid service miss. We will contact the owner and cleaner and pass this on for training purposes (it is a third party). We will also check the hot water heater to see what is up and correct any issue. Mahalo for letting us know.
Joseph O. says
Keep it up!! You are providing excellent customer service and it is noticed.
Natalie Koziarski was so welcoming and helpful. She answered questions about the property and island activities. Cleanliness and really well stocked kitchenware and supplies. Appreciated generous supply of towels!
Michelle F. says
Love the location and comfort of home
Please check washing machine. I think there is a short in the door. It is hard to start. Forgot to mention while there
Mahalo Michelle for your review and the heads up. We will check out the washer. Aloha
Ann F. says
Mike was wonderful, the basket was beautiful, Mai Tai’s were the best we had on the island anywhere and flower arrangements beautiful. The home was very well maintained. We understand missing pictures on the wall since the house had just sold but hope that would resolved down the road. ???? Thank you Mike for your excellent customer service.
All was in order as usual. We dined at Tortilla Republic five times – the service and food are excellent. Child friendly (we had a 2 yo granddaughter in our group). Merriman’s upstairs remains below average – poor service and high prices. For a good deep sea fishing experience contact O’Hana Fishing Charters – friendly and great spirit.
The photos and description were spot on. But when we walked in the door we were beyond blown away. So gorgeous!! The Parrish Collection, particularly Kristie in the Koloa office made sure we had everything we needed. We loved the evening sail – fun for everyone. The children had great fun in the nearby beach, at the baby beach, on the train, and the Poipu Shopping Center Hula Show. This was a time for all the family to be together. Thank you for the extra three hours at the house before our departure…it was really a gift.
Wish it could have gone on forever!
This beautiful property was the best choice for lodging my family from Oahu for my son’s graduation. It was easy to find and absolutely the most beautiful place i have ever stayed. The pool was a welcomed treat since the ocean was right there, but not summable. The only problem we had was some of the relatives took home the soaps and shampoo and conditioner – a big no-no as we later found out. Rather than send them back from Oahu, they opted to pay for them via a smaller deposit return… something you would think would have been included in the high price! I wonder what would have happened had we used it all and threw away the containers? Oh well, it was still worth it! Our personal host Christie was absolutely the best! There was one small problem that she resolved immediately. She was a real sweety.
Great Family Holiday
We stayed at Kauai Kai over the 2010 Chirstmas Holidays. We had a wonderful time in a really comfortable home. Watching the sea turtles and feeding the eels was very enjoyable. The evening sunsets are spectacular. The house is very comfortable with all the amentities you expect. A great snorkle beach is within walking distance to the house.
Best Birthday of My Life!
This is a beautiful home in a wonderful location. It is more suitable for 4 couples than 5 since the twin bedroom is actually a den with no closet, very little storage space and hot. The room needs a ceiling fan. The home was very well appointed and I would stay again with fewer people. We enjoyed watching the turtles, whales, eels and fish.
The house is so nice that it became one of our destinations.
There is not much that is not perfect about this house for two or three couples. It was very comfortable with a quality of furniture and furnishings not generally found in a home available for rent. We spent entire afternoons on the shaded patio watching the surf. We cooked three dinners on the backyard grill and ate them on the pool deck underthe stars. The only things that kept the house from being absolutely perfect were: (i) we were never able to get the shower or indoor jacuzzi water hot enough; and (ii) one bedrooms was considerably nicer than the others (but that’s a design choice made when the house was built). We would stay there again.

Liveing in a postcard
This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the earth. I wouold highly recommend it to anyone with the means to enjoy this home. Thanks, we had a wonderful 2 weeks
Watching the Turtles
Great house right on the ocean. In the morning, my wife and I sat on the lanai out back, drinking coffee and watching the turtles play in the breaking waves. Kids loved the pool. Spa (hot tub) was not on (or hot) and we did not know how to turn it on, but we also never bothered to call the property manager to get it going. Very nice kitchen, but we did not use it much (we ate out mostly). Rooms were very comfortable and clean. I had trouble getting on a wireless internet connection, but was able to plug in to the Cable Modem that the PC in the office was plugged in to – that worked well enough. I would rent here again.
