First the great things about the cliff house . It has easy access to the Marriott which has a wonderful pool and workout area and kalapaki beach is so nice . Paddle boarding is great for beginners here . The location is really nice for seeing the north or south and west parts of the island and we played a round of golf at the kauai lagoon course right on the property and it was fabulous . The kitchen in the unit was fine for 2 people (we were in the lower unit ) but the only seating in the condo was 2 very uncomfortable wooden bar stools and 2 chairs outside on the balcony with a table . There was a futon in the living room up against the wall , but when you moved it away from the wall to get it closer to the tv which was far away , it fell down as it was broken . This we never sat on because it was so uncomfortable .
I think the owners wanted an Asian decor theme , which I get but not at the expense of practicality . The bedroom had a comfortable bed but the lighting was so poor and there were no drawers for our clothes ,so we put them in the closets but with no lighting we could never see what we needed .( we were using flashlights ! ) . The bathroom was great .
We feel bad because Josh and Sean were great and brought us 2 chaise lounges to put on our balcony plus a couple of kitchen supplies and a Bluetooth sound system. They also had some of the branches removed from the trees for a better view !
It is too bad ...because with a bit of tweaking this place could be perfect ! But when you have to eat your dinner on your bed because there is no comfy place to sit that's just not going to work ! How about one comfy couch and way better lighting. , that would be all it would take !!
We love kauai and we went on amazing hikes and kayaked to waterfalls and took a helicopter ride around the island . It is a very special place and we will be back for sure . Mahalo :))
We rented the house for our 25th wedding Anniversary. We were not told until the day before our arrival that we had the "lower" unit. Upon arrival we also discovered the only air conditioning was an old window unit in the bedroom. The unit was less then clean, the bedding looked well worn and there was water leaking in the closet. We didn't even stay there one night left and checked into a local hotel. Try contacting them about the situation never heard back.
We couldn't be happier about our stay in the Cliff House Suite. This is a clean, modern property with everything you'll need and with access to the Marriott's facilities you really can't lose. I'm already planning a return trip next year. Great staff to work with too!
