Upper deck & beach side fun, right next to the Lani Kai, sort of hidden . Live music, lots of people, drinks & food. This is a fun spot, not necessarily occupied by the Spring breakers from next door!

During our vacation we visited the Cottage at least three different times. It was always rocking, especially at night. There is always live music, and always a crowd. It can get pretty crazy after 10pm. Fun crowd, good drinks!
