About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Amazing ocean front location with sunset views from private covered 184 square foot lanai complete with dining table, lounging chairs and ottomans and daybed! Watch and hear the waves - see turtles - guaranteed! Watch whales (seasonally) before your eyes!

Minutes to the white sand of Poipu/Kiahuna Beach with conveniences of snack bar, bathrooms and showers. Little public parking makes this a hidden gem beach. Learn to surf, snorkel or just enjoy the warm waters.

Alihi Lani is featured in the Ultimate Kauai Guidebook as a 'real gem' giving it their highest rating. Enjoy the views from the ocean front pool and BBQ's.

Everything you can imagine needing: We have provided! Hawaiian music. Game systems. 3 flat screen TV's with CD players. DVD's. Beach chairs. Beach towels. Cooler. Family games.

Totally equipped kitchen: The compliment we receive most often is about the kitchen! It has everything you need for basic cooking or for gourmet cooking. There are even serving dishes that make your meals special. And wait until you see the great dishes and hand painted wine glasses!

Location: The location is absolutely ideal. Away from all the hectic Poipu Beach traffic, cars and surfers. But just a few minutes easy, safe, sidewalk walk to the beach at Kiahuna which has all the conveniences of a snack bar, showers and bathroom. Learn to surf - guaranteed - right on the beach or snorkel and swim. Whatever your mood! Plenty of warm, white sand to stretch out on as well.

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

About Cynthia

Well, I had this great idea - let's get a place in Hawaii, I said to my husband. My son said, 'I like Kauai' and the rest is history!

Cynthia purchased this condo in 2007

Why Cynthia chose Poipu

This location is IDEAL! A very short walk to an uncrowded beach with all the amenities. Sunsets from the lanai. Whales breaching right in front of your eyes - you won't believe it! 1/2 mile to great restaurants and shops. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves - YOU'VE ARRIVED ** IN POIPU!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Poipu Kapili #54 was absolutely PERFECT! The condo is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and well located. A perfect retreat for our family of four, with two teenage boys (17 & 12). We are already planning a return trip. Mahalo Cynthia!

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely oceanside condo. The condo was extremely well equipped: the kitchen had everything we needed and all the appliances were up to date and tableware was unique and very nice; the bathrooms were also well equipped with dryers and makeup mirrors. The decor was tasteful with tranquil color scheme and local art. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed whale watching with coffee in the morning and with a glass of wine in the evenings. The beach equipment including beach towels was very useful also. Location was very nice: near the best snorkeling at Koloa Landing boat ramp and close to drugstore, gourmet market and many decent restaurants. We hope to return soon!

Great location. Well kept condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the condo. Our view from the lanai was outstanding. We spent many evenings on the lanai just enjoying the view.

Especially liked that there are only 6 units. Makes it feel more homey.

The condo is very nicely furnished and kept very clean. The rooms are comfortable.

I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Kauai.

I miss this place already!

  • 5 of 5

First, we have to start with the view, although what I really want to say it that this is the best supplied rental I've ever seen. The view is truly special, although to be fair there is a road in between the unit and the water, which is well traveled. From the balcony we saw dolphins pods frolicking, humpback whales spouting and oh my stars! I've never seen stars on the horizon before, it's that dark out there! And you'll see the Milky Way, it's truly astounding at night!

Now back to the unit, this owner truly thinks of every need! You walk in to find gentle Hawaiian music welcoming you, a kitchen stocked with coffee and every condiment you might want, and bathrooms supplied with every necessity. The sheets are silky soft which along with the sound of the ocean allow for a very restful nights sleep.

The only issue was the air conditioning, which worked fine for me, but the owner requests that you don't go below 72 and my husband needs to have it freezing cold at night to sleep, so it was a bit warm for him. There were no ocean breezes blowing and the fan just makes him clammy, so I think for people sensitive to heat this might be an issue, but for me I was fine and actually turned my air conditioner off at night because it was too cold. The dual zone air conditioning is key.

Neighbors are neighbors everywhere, but mostly ours were quiet during our stay. You'll get some local color with the kids that line up to see the sunset and fish from the rocks.

Easy walk to the restaurants at the Sheraton resort, and follow the suggestions the owner provides in the booklet, she's very honest and spot on!

I missed this place as soon as we left so spend some time on that balcony for me!

Owner's Response: Thank you Melanie - and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I want to clarify for the readers a few items: the road in front is a SMALL neighborhood road that serves only our complex and few other homes. It is along the ocean so some people do drive there to see the water. It is not a major road or a thoroughfare. There are far more people walking along the water than cars driving. Because of the 10' wall out front and that we sit up and back from the road, it has virtually no impact. Regarding a/c. We are very happy to provide an extremely nice, super quiet and efficient a/c unit - brand new in 2016. There are separate units in each bedroom for individual control plus additional separate unit in the living room. The manufacturer and installer recommends setting no lower than 72 degrees. In this environment, if set lower, the units can freeze over and become damaged. The only way to fix the problem is shut down the whole system for a few days for it to literally thaw out. I find that 72 serves the needs of nearly everyone who rents. Up until now, I have not had any comments about it being too high. Of course we want everyone to be comfortable and happy - this is why we installed a/c. But we do ask that people respect whats necessary to keep items in good working order. Thanks again and hope to have you back again soon.
