Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom second floor condo with large oceanfront lanai

ALIHI LANI. This small, 6 unit complex is a 'Real Gem', according to the Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. The oceanfront pool has been newly refurbished in 2011. The front landscaped area also has two gas grills and great lawn furniture.

OCEANFRONT. Our second floor location overlooks the oceanfront pool and is less than 50 yards from the pounding surf. Watch ocean life and spectacular sunsets from the 184 square foot covered lanai. Year-round you will see turtles and dolphins - and during whale season the show is right in front of you.

LOCATION. The Sheraton beach is located less than 5 minutes walk. There you can enjoy snorkeling, beach swimming, surf lessons, and sunbathing. Restaurants, groceries, and shopping are also within easy walking distance.

FLOOR PLAN. Our home has two true master suites, both with bathrooms directly accessible from the sleeping area. Bedrooms are air conditioned. The setup is ideal for two couples or a family of up to 6. Lanai, Kitchen, Dining, Living, and one Bedroom all have spectacular ocean views.

REMODELED. Most furnishing and finishes replaced and kitchen remodeled in Fall, 2012. Soaking tub, tile floors throughout living spaces, and new living room furniture added in Spring, 2014.

AMENITIES. Our home is equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation. It is luxuriously appointed with high quality linens and towels. Kauai-made soaps, shampoos, and lotion are provided. We also supply boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella, and a cooler for your outings. For evenings in, we have HDTV, games, books, DVDs, and binoculars for whale/turtle watching. The kitchen is well stocked for preparing any type of meal.

Alihi Lani is now a 'NO SMOKING' property both inside the unit and in the common areas.

*We NEVER will ask you for a WIRE* If anyone ever asks you to wire money - you may be a victim of a scam!!! Always call us if you want any information. We are not overseas - we are in California.

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 Kauai

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 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.

OUTSTANDING!!! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the Veranda watching the turtles and whales, I asked myself, could life be any better. No, but this Condo is much better than just turtles and whales from the Veranda. It is right on the heritage trail which goes everywhere. It's a 5 minute walk to the Mall. It has plenty of parking. It is beautifully managed and maintained and much more.

We got to know the occupants in the adjacent Condo's, which was fun. How could that not happen when the pool, the deck and the Bar-b-que's are right there, just steps from your Condo. Poipu Beach has the best weather in Hawaii.

Thanks, Cynthia for a great experience and taking such nice care of your Condo. We will be back.

Best Place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay included fabulous sunrises and sunsets from our covered porch where we could see the ocean and hear the water. We were only about 50 yards to a walkway where we could stroll up and down the beach. We had privacy and quiet in this wonderful unit that felt like home away from home, yet placed in paradise. The location is amazing and within easily reachable restaurants, shops, and other places to enjoy the beauty. We had never been to Hawaii and this was our first trip . We came to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Because of this condo we want to come back year after year. We were happy just being there and not travelling to any other spot on the island, but we did travel many times to see all the popular sites and would come back to a restful, peaceful, and magical place. This condo is a hidden secret that everyone should experience.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that we stayed at Alihi Lani, different unit. It doesn't matter which unit you are in, they are all great.

Quiet with outstanding views and close to stores and restaurants.

We are in the process of booking a unit for 2017. As far as we are concerned there is no better place to stay. This was our 12th trip to Kauai and the only regret we have is that we didn't know about Alihi Lani sooner.

Alihi Lani is a wonderful place to stay in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay so much that we will return next year and try another unit. We highly recommend to friends. As stated by all, the sunset views are to die for. You are within walking distance to shopping & Restaurants. We enjoyed our breakfasts and nightly sunsets with our wine on the Lanai every night.

Cynthia provides you with all of the local information on food and attractions. We love some of the same eating places she does(Tapas).

Cynthia has a lot of patience because this was my first rental from VRBO and I am sure I drove her nuts but she provided excellent customer service.

This was a very positive experience and we are looking forward to next year. I could continue on and on but all of the excellence reviews written so far are accurate.

Best vacation rental in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this place more than 5 stars in my review, I would in a heartbeat. My family stayed at this condo in January and we couldn’t have been happier about finding this place. First, the view is beyond spectacular! Every morning, we sat out in the lanai to have breakfast and were treated to a free show of whales, dolphins and turtles. The condo also provided a perfect view of beautiful sunsets. Many local visitors would congregate across the street to watch the sunset - having an upper floor private lanai all to ourselves made us feel like VIPs. There are plenty of high-end resorts in Poipu but few can offer the mesmerizing views that you get from this condo. As for the unit itself, it is nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. The entire place had a luxurious feel to it - the living room and bedrooms were perfectly cool and comfortable, the bathrooms were spotlessly clean, the kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. The unit offered ample space for my family of 5 adults. We were also very appreciative for how pleasant the owners were to deal with. They were exceptional in their communication - from the moment we inquired about this condo, booked our reservation, and all throughout our stay - the owners responded timely to all of our inquiries and made sure we knew that they were always accessible. This helped out greatly in planning our vacation. All of our expectations were exceeded and we absolutely can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience. We will definitely book this condo again the next time we visit Kauai.

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.
