Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Poipu - Alihi Lani 5

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.

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.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, 4.5 year old, and myself) had a wonderful stay at Alihi Lani #5. We debated between this unit, the property next door (Poipu Kaplili - bigger unit) and Poipu Shores - located closer to the ocean. Upon walking in, I couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The condo was the perfect size, plenty of space and beautifully furnished, and as stated well equipped. The kitchen had everything I needed including a vegetable peeler for my picky eater, and kids plates and cups.

My husband and son went directly to the pool, which was the perfect temperature, there are also rolling umbrellas for shade as I watched my little swimmer, and floats for when I joined him. I should note here that Poipu Kapilli does not have an ocean view from the pool at least while your seated. The view from the lawn chairs is wonderful, what a perfect place to relax and read, and to grill out at night. The complex being small, there was never a crowd at the pool or for the grill, and we actually enjoyed meeting most of our neighbors at the pool and trading excursions and travel tips.

My first stop was to check out the water. Just behind the sea wall was a ledge of rocks that led all the way down to the Sheraton. Although it's probably not the safest activity to recommend, I happily explored the rocks finding numerous tide pools and found it to be my own wonderful adventure. It's also an easy walk via the road to the Sheraton beach. The sunsets here were amazing! Every night people gathered along the sea wall, with their refreshments to watch. We actually met a lot of locals who came to this spot as well. Our condo gave us the option of viewing from the pool, our balcony, or the sea wall - and we did them all. From our balcony we could see numerous charter boats anchored in front of us, upon taking a snorkeling tour we learned this was a popular home to many tutorials which we could see using the binoculars Cynthia provided us. I can honestly say we never turned the tv on.

In the evening we enjoyed the quiet of sitting outside listening to the waves. Warm nights we had the AC which was more than adequate. My son slept peacefully every night and loved the big bathtub! For days we had chairs, towels, cooler. Cynthia was wonderful and on property with us she had fabulous recommendations for dining and excursions. She even found the most perfect spot for us to take our son trick or treating! I highly recommend this rental.

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.
