My husband and I stayed in this cottage for 3 nights during our trip to Lanikai. Before we arrived, Kate emailed us helpful tips and directions. We found the cottage easily and Kate greeted us upon arrival. The cottage is perfect for a couple looking to get away to a quiet beach town. It is very modern with a Hawaiian vibe. It is also very private because it is detached from the main house. The owners provided beach necessities such as chairs, towels, snorkels, an umbrella and a cooler...so there is no need to stuff those items into your luggage. The beach is a VERY short walk from to cottage. You will need to rent a car when traveling to Lanikai because the town isn't close enough to walk, but it's a super short drive. My hubby and I highly recommend this Lanikai cottage and can't wait to return one day.
