About Cynthia Haines

Ever since we first visited Kauai prior to Hurricane Iniki, it has been our dream to own property and eventually retire from our hectic California lives to this idyllic island. My husband and I had our first vacation together in the Poipu area and have visited for several anniversaries since. We purchased Alihi Lani #5 so that we can eventually move to the island full-time. Meanwhile, it's yours and ours to enjoy part-time!

Cynthia Haines purchased this condo in 2012

Why Cynthia Haines chose Koloa

We knew Alihi Lani was going to be our next home the first time we stayed. The Poipu area is such a great part of the island and the area near the Sheraton the best part of Poipu. With the ability to walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach, the location can't be beat. We love the that #5 is on the second floor - makes the views even more spectacular and unobstructed. The floorplan is also great when we're alone or when we have another couple as guests.

What makes this condo unique

As a small, 6 unit complex, you never feel crowded at Alihi Lani. The pool often is ours to enjoy alone and we never have that awful fight for lounge chairs. Also the pool is one of the few on island with excellent ocean views. But the 2nd floor lanai of #5 is by far our favorite place and why we purchased this property. With it's expansive views of sunsets and marine life, it's where we 'live' when we are visiting.

Fantastic condo and location

  • 5 out of 5
With this being our 1st time to Kauai, I did a lot of research on lodging based upon what we wanted and was excited to come across this unit. When we arrived to Alihi Lani, the well appointed unit and incredible view exceeded our expectations! We were out and about every day exploring this wonderful island, but we were always anxious to return to the condo in the afternoon to use the great pool out front, watch the sunset, and enjoy an evening meal and drinks on the lanai (great furniture for relaxing). The unit interior has everything you need. We also met Cynthia while we were there and she is very warm and helpful and had great suggestions for things to do. We can't wait to return!

Best Condo Ever

  • 5 out of 5
This condo is amazing.we stayed here for 3 weeks with our friends and had a fantastic vacation. The views are breathtaking and we enjoyed many meals on the Lanai watching the sunset. It was really great to have a sofa and arm chair on the lanai where you could relax and look at the ocean where we often saw dolphins and turtles.

The kitchen has everything you need and more to cook great meals. My husband was previously a chef and cooked some fantastic meals. There are even herbs and spices available.

This is the best condo we have ever stayed in and will definitely be returning. The bedrooms are comfortable and both have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning for those hot days when the trade winds are not blowing.

The lounge area was so comfortable with a great sofa and Arm chair. There is a great selection of DVDs.

The pool was great and we often had the pool to ourselves.

Best Lanai, Best Turtle Viewing

  • 5 out of 5
All I can say is WOW!! This is far more gorgeous than the photos. This is a luxury condo with an amazing view. We sat on the lanai for hours watching turtles, dolphins and tropical birds.

Very Nice Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week. It looks just like the pictures online. It was very clean and very well equipped. It's close to shopping and other amenities. No central air but on most days you don't miss it. The lanai is great for sitting out and just watching the ocean with enough space for dining as well. Be advised one of the master bedroom walls is composed of louvered slider doors to the living room. If you are staying in the master and want a lot of privacy from your other guests, it may not be for you. However it was just perfect for us, and I would stay there again.

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was so convenient and comfortable. Had all the supplies we needed, could walk to the beach and restaurants and one shopping center. The beds and bedding were quite comfortable and we slept well. We used the boogie boards a lot. The view and lanai were fantastic - spent lots of time on that lanai. The place was very clean and well decorated, except the kitchen fan was dusty (but I don't clean my own fans often enough so can't complain). The wi-fi worked well the few times we used it. The trade winds were not active the first few days so during the middle of the afternoon we had to go into the bedrooms and run the portable ac units or fans, our you could use the pool which was never crowded. The Big Save market in downtown Kona worked well for buying some groceries so we could cook for ourselves some. My only recommendation would be to consider bringing a few of your own beach towels - the condo supplies 4 but if you have more than 2 people in your party you will be washing them all the time. Poipu beach was great (both the area by the Sheraton and the area by the park/playground). The best place we found to boogie board was in Hanalei Bay - had excellent conditions for surfing and boogie boarding. Rumfire in the Sheraton was a great place to have a drink while the sun set. If I was going to live in Kauai, it would be in this condo complex for sure. Thank you for a great stay.

Location

Car: recommended

The Poipu area is the sunny side of the island of Kauai. There are several great beaches in the area, including the Sheraton/Kiahuna beach a 5 minute walk from our condo. We are also walkable to the two shopping centers - Kukuiula and Poipu - where many great restaurants and boutiques are located. A short drive and you can reach charter and tour boats for fishing, snorkeling, or diving. There are only 6 National Botanical Gardens in the U.S. and we are very close to two of them: the Allerton and McBryde Gardens. For touring, a bit longer drive and you can see the Grand Canyon of the West, Waimea Canyon, where there are some excellent hikes and views of the Na Pali Coast. Poipu is a terrific home base for viewing all of Kauai as most things are a few minutes away and even the farthest attractions are still less than an hour from us.
