Barely ok.

Bldg 34 room 215. I would stay away. Condo was disappointing. Coffee pot barely functional, lamp shade in LR falling off lamp, bathroom was stained and grubby. Bedding was average. Soap was tiny, like free samples, only a few small bottles of shampoo. View was very nice. Overall expected higher quality.

Family Fun For Four

Aaron W on Jun 10, 2024

We were concerned after reading several reviews about the variable quality of the rooms at this resort. But I can safely say room 301 is a great choice. It definitely has AC that works well in the main living area and the fans in both living and bedroom are strong and quiet. Nice big shutters for blocking out light in the early morning. Kitchen and bathroom are clean, basic but well enough equipped. We had 4 of us including 2 teenagers and yes it's a bit tight with all their stuff spread out and the couch (their bed) pulled out but we tried to be outside more often than not. The pillows are pretty bad and the main bed isn't the most comfortable but they did the job. Two Tv's had access to netflix and plenty of channels for the couple of times we bothered to turn 'em on. Easy walk to the beach, but unfortunately no onsite pool or eateries at all. A very quick and easy walk across the road has food and small shopping options and this room comes with free access to the gym/pool athletic center across the street. We didn't spend anytime at the pool but I used the gym almost every morning and it's good quality. As far as location goes you can't really beat this. Could it use some updating and some TLC? Yes. But all in all we were very satisfied. Find the VRBO listing pictures which were very accurate. So no need for me to include any that I took. vrbo.com/3721043

Not what we expected from the Parrish Collection.

Well what happened to Kauai? Especially this tired old resort. We stayed in a 1 bedroom Unit 186. The view from the balcony was lovely and the perfection ended there. This particular unit is sad and in need of total refurbishment. The carpet is dirty and soiled, the frames of the windows in the bedroom are rusty and covered with cobwebs. The furnishings in the living room should be put into a dump. All in all it is a very poorly maintained condominium. The kitchen counters are tiled with dirty grout, not especially conducive to confidentially preparing a meal. Kitchen appliances are old and grubby. The bathroom is old and grubby. I believe The Parrish Collection Company should inspect their units before promoting such an embarrassing example of their dated and badly maintained vacation rental.

Not the Hawaiian vacation you saw in glossy magazine.

While the shoreline is one of the most beautiful in the world, it does lessen the fact that the building we’re staying in is located right next to the maintenance yard for resort, which is a constant source of noise. Add to that is the “pool”, which is located across a busy road, doesn’t belong to the resort and it has the feel of a run down municipal pool that resort guests have “privileges” at. To top things off, we requested a top floor and when we got here, we were informed that they weren’t any, even though we can see they’re empty.

Lovelier Than We Thought

David L on Mar 23, 2024

My wife and I booked a semi-ocean view condo sight unseen via Costco to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our condo had air conditioning! [Unit #317] Not that we needed it too much, the weather being a consistent 75* by day, but it was nice to have after expecting to not have one. The view from the large lanai was small pieces of ocean and a touch of surf, making the lovely orchid-filled garden below the better view. Sunsets were best seen by walking to the beach, left through the Sheraton, and on to the first point - about seven minutes from the condo. (While I’m talking distances, the pool at the nicely appointed athletic club up aways and across the street is a ten minute walk. There is good food directly across the street only a few minutes away - pizza and Mexican.) The spacious unit also had a full refrigerator/freezer with working ice machine and all the equipment one could need - it lacked foil, wrap, spices, oil, etc. The king sized bed was comfortable, double-sheeted, plenty of pillows, a ceiling fan, and another fan (probably leftover from its pre-AC days), and a huge TV! Took some to figure out how to get it to work - sorry, you’re on your own there!????? The third floor unit did present some issues for us slightly older folk, carrying the luggage up and down, and the daily in and out meant careful planning to avoid unnecessary trips. The location in Poipu is superb! We really felt like we could get to everything in a half hour or less and didn’t mind the longer trips to Princeville and Kapaa and Waimea Canyon. Port Allen was twenty minutes away for our sunset catamaran dinner cruise, Spouting Horn was a must see multiple times being so close, and Poipu beach snorkeling was just our speed! We would return - but hopefully with enough lead time to arrange for an ocean front unit.
