Deani's ohana cottage, Li'i Lani, was our 'little heaven' on our recent visit to Kaua'i. I lived in Wailua Homesteads years ago and it was a joy to come back. This is a wonderful local upcountry neighborhood with lush gardens, running streams, and amazing views of Sleeping Giant and Mount Wai'ale'ale. (There are great hiking trails on Sleeping Giant/Nounou Mountain, too.) The place is just up the road from the main road in Kapa'a, Kuhio Highway, so it's very central to cafes and markets (and very nice beaches). It's a perfect location because of its proximity to the North Shore (Ha'ena, Hanalei, Princeville, Kilauea) and South Shore (Poipu, Koloa, Kalaheo, Waimea). The cottage, itself, is amazing retreat. It's totally immaculate, really comfortable, and nicely appointed. It's very charming with ceiling fans and seashells. We arrived to a freshly baked pie and an overflowing basket of local snacks, red wine, and ground coffee. The kitchen was stocked with appliances and cooking utensils and there were a ton of helpful little items (beach towels, mats, and chairs!) to help us feel at home. There's a beautiful vegetable garden with a seating area near the back lanai and it was a pleasure to have breakfast outside each day and enjoy the peaceful surroundings before setting off on an adventure. We highly recommend Li'i Lani and we look forward to returning one day. Mahalo nui loa, Deani!

This trip had a couple of first time experiences for me; I was vacationing alone, it was my first time to Hawaii and my first B&B; reservation. Wow, I don't think it can get much better after my 10 days in Kauai at Deani's Li'i Lani! The things I was looking for, like privacy, location, clean, "home-like", were in total abundance here. The Kapa'a location was perfect for me as it was mere minutes to get to the main highway and off to that day's adventure/beach. My favorite amenity, among many provided, was the blender for my morning smoothie! Deani has obviously spent time around luxury resort properties as it shows in her choices in provisioning this beautiful little cottage. I wish I had been able to take advantage of Deani's husband Todd's offer for surfing lessons, but I will take him up on that next time, as there will definitely be a next time. I'm just hoping that I'll be able to reserve a stay as this spot in paradise will be on everyone's wishlist in no time! Worth every penny!
