Very nice house
We were a family of four. Our two children also brought their significant others. Six total. The house layout was great. Sliders opening from the kitchen to the patio, pool, hot tub. After returning from the day’s activities we spent the late afternoons here. House has a Sonos system so poolside tunes made it fun. The master everything was great. Each bedroom had its own bath. House was wonderfully landscaped. Very private. The Parrish collection was the property manager. Great communication. Not inexpensive to rent for a week. But a great value. I definitely felt it was worth it and would stay here again.
Mahalo Mike for your 5-star review and wonderful comments. We are so happy that you enjoyed the home and that we could help your whole ohana feel comfortable during your stay. We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!

We loved staying at this property and thought it was even better in person than in the photos. Great location, the outdoor area/ pool was wonderful and the house was very clean. They provided an amazing welcome basket with snacks, mai tais and coffee, which was much appreciated. I would note that the hot tub is not an actual hot tub but that wasn’t an issue for us. Thanks for a great stay!
Mahalo Paige for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that your stay at Akahai at Poipu Beach exceeded your expectations! Glad to hear you loved the location, pool, and cleanliness. We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!
We love the Parrish collection and know we will arrive to a clean, beautiful house with and amazing gift basket which starts the vacay off right. WE LOVE this house and have stayed here multiple times but the beds need a few more soft pillows as the king size pillows are very hard and flat. Dryer was leaking water, master bedroom toilet running.
Mahalo Jill. We love your loyalty. We will be sure to add some for your next stay and will get someone to look at the dryer and toilet. Thanks for the heads up. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha

Jamie was very helpful with my request especially if she finds my daughters cup. Our first stay we were a late check in also. We received our keys at the car rental. That was much more convenient. The lock was a bit sticky and difficult to relock. We did not have hot water for 2 days and the dishwasher broke. Garage availability or lack there of would have been nice to know before we arrived.
Mahalo Kate for your 5-star review and comments. Glad we were able to find your daughter’s cup and get that back to you. We apologize for the inconvenience on the hot water heater (but glad it was a simple reset) and the dishwasher (not an easy fix…the part is ordered and will be fixed soon). Sorry for any confusion on the garage…guests have access for beach gear etc. but the owner stores their car inside. Mahalo for your understanding.

Dear Staff, How far is the property from Poipu Beach? Can you walk there?
Mary Sussillo Zeisel
Aloha Mary, Akahai is a healthy walk to the beach, but doable. I know the owner does as well as others in the Poipu Beach Estate neighborhood. Maybe 10-15 minutes, depending on how fast you walk. The nearest beach is Kiahuna Beach. Aloha.
Vacation in comfort and Style
Great house in great location! Enjoyed our 2 week stay in Kauai this house has all the amenities required to allow you to enjoy the Kauai life style!
Julia S. says
The home was beautiful and well appointed. We especially enjoyed the island vibe the home had. Jaime was professional, helpful, quick to respond, and friendly! She checked up on us regularly and we felt that she genuinely cared and wanted to make sure we were taken care of. Mahalo for another fantastic vacation! We’ll be back!
Mahalo Julia for the 5-star review and comments. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou.
Gregg & Tracy says
Loved location as well as layout and condition of home. Very well kept.
Add a few bins outside front door and inside door to put shoes in??
Mahalo Greg & Tracy for your 5-star review and suggestion. We will pass it on to the owner. Aloha
Jennelle & Keith says
Akahai is one of my most favorite homes to rent on that island! It’s perfect in every way!
We have booked with Parrish 6 times in the past and every time our expectations are exceeded! We only go through your management company because we always know everything g will go smoothly and as planned. Thanks for being a great company! Christie Volkmer was great! She was prompt in answering my calls and returning information quickly. She worked to get us in to the rental with an earlier check in and was prepared with all that we needed to enter the property and enjoy ourselves! Awesome at what she does!
Mahalo Jennelle & Keith for being such great repeat guests. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha
Shelly H. says
Christie was awesome!
Anne L. says
Comfortable and functional AND beautiful!
Arno R. says
Thanks all for one of our best top notch vacation experiences. We have rented before from others on other islands but this one definitely rates as the BEST experience. Although the pics and descriptions match the property, the pics and descriptions will never do justice to this home. You may want to add, central music system as an additional bell & whistle. Also -- have the speaker outside repaired as well as hot tub. All members we dealt with provided us with a great customer experience.
Mahalo Arno for your review and comments. We will pass on your suggestion to the owner and be sure to get the speaker fixed. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha
Tara P. says
Overall, a really great experience.
We loved that the house had ample outdoor space and the pool was not overly chlorinated. We also really enjoyed the sound system throughout the house. The master shower was phenomenal.
The house was wonderful.
Christie was very nice and Chris assisted with our introduction to the house. Thanks for the mai tais and gift basket! We would have eaten all of the mai tai sorbet, but sadly for us, we didn’t realize it was in the freezer until the last night! It would have been helpful to know that the house included Netflix, so we could bring along our password for that. We received it at a discount, due to construction that was to occur in our originally-rented house, so not sure I would recommend this house, just due to the higher price. Also, we would have preferred to be walking distance to more amenities. In addition, we would have liked the blinds in the bedrooms to keep out the light in the early morning hours, as the blinds are translucent or nearly transparent, depending on the lighting. We’d like to suggest that a dish-drying rack be included in the kitchen. Also, it would be nice if the pantry had more items in it, say maybe spices and olive oil, sugar, etc. We would have preferred to be able to park our vehicle in the garage. Also, it would be helpful if guests were provided info on the pool and beach items that are provided with the house, so they don’t bring any of these items from home. Your staff was already aware that the jets in the hot tub were not working. All else was fine.
Mahalo Leann for your review and comments. Sorry you missed the sorbet, we leave it as a surprise in the freezer. We will pass on your notes about the blinds and drying rack to the owner. On spices, oils, etc. we make a choice not to leave previous guests’ leftovers in our properties for safety and sanitary reasons. Because beach and pool items change so often, we do not list them but chairs, a cooler and an umbrella are standard. We look forward to hosting you again soon. ALoha
Best property inventory offerings
Outside fan wasn’t working. Suggestion for improvement: could benefit from directions on how to set-up Sonos/Airplay
Staff, house itself in good condition, kitchen clean ????
Casey, Chris, Kristi, Casey and maybe Dedra (can’t remember her name she gave the discount for the broken hot tub. Ants in the kitchen, they brought pest control a few days later (we had it on a Friday and obviously over the holiday weekend there was no one avail….hot tub broken -- but Parrish was very responsive and gave us a discount. Fan broken outside…they brought a floor fan to help.
Marcus W. says
All interactions with your team were exceptional
Great having our own space. TV overly complicated and required a staff member to reboot to get working again! Sometimes simple is better than technology that just complicates. We had a great time and look forward to returning
Debbie H. says
Commendations to Natalie and help through the office booking our spa adventures
Tim R. says
Everything worked out very well. No need changes needed.
Thanks for helping me during our stay.
Natalie had excellent follow up. Pat seemed frustrated with me during our challenge with the heavy machinery but tried accommodating and Lisa at the desk was very short with me on the phone but in person was the first time was not helpful But the second visit she was kind and attentive. So I think our issue was just unexpected and we all did our best. Moving from property to property wasn’t the best as we felt we lost time dealing with it and then moving personal items. But in the end I want to thank you for helping us get a new location. Appreciated.
Mahalo Jill for your 5-star review and understanding with the move. We cannot control the neighboring construction but glad we had another home for you available and again, thank you for your patience in the matter.
Jolene H. says
Natalie was the person we dealt with throughout our stay. She was always pleasant and helpful and very responsive. Our bar b q wasn’t working. But maintenance staff came right away and looked into it. As it turned out the ignitor was broken. They weren’t able to replace it before check out as it had to be ordered. We were able to light it with a manual flame though. The only thing that was perhaps missing at our rental was a fly swatter! That would have been really handy! Other than that, it was a perfect stay!
Mahalo Jolene for your review. Sorry about the BBQ and thanks for you understanding. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
David E. says
Professionalism and knowledge of the staff, especially Natalie and Robin.
Natalie was extremely professional and diligent in addressing the details of our stay. She is a wonderful ambassador for the Parrish Kauai team. Hot water system was not working properly. Ice machine was repaired while in residence.
Cindi K. says
Very easy and the staff was friendly!
The house was actually more beautiful than the pictures! Would highly recommend it. Very private! Felt like we were in a house we owned.
Robert And Jane says
All the comforts of home, top-quality amenities, helpful support staff, lovely house
Sarah L. says
Natalie the agent met us at the property, she brought the welcome basket and Mai Tai. She was very friendly and efficient. The fact that your office is located on the Island, and the agents are familiar with the properties. I called the office, and asked for a temporary solution for the missing window cover. It was immediately taken care of .
Sterling S. says
It was very nice
We have rented with the Parrish collection several times and it is always great. Natalie did an awesome job at making sure everything was taken care of for us and called to check in during our stay and when we left just to make sure we could enjoy our time in Hawaii. Thanks Natalie!!
