About Steve Erlinger

This location is the secret spot right in the middle of the largest city on the island. A great find and place to visit. I love it here!! I am directly involved in caring for and booking the vacation rentals so feel free to call me any time if you are interested. My cell number is 949 500-5893. Aloha!

Steve Erlinger purchased this condo in 2008

Why Steve Erlinger chose Lihue-Kalapaki

We actually bought this property in 2003 and built it from the ground up, finishing it in April of 2008! Everything newer and rather modern in design compared to many places in the area. I love this area because it offers such as wide variety of acivities while also giving you the opportuntiy to have a great deal of peace and quiet. Also, the loacation is central so that you can more easily explore the other sides of the island if you choose.

What makes this condo unique

I love to go down to the beach (at the corner against the cliff in the grassy area) in the early morning and just be quiet, maybe stretch out or do a little exercise and then take a swim while the bay is very calm and uncrowded. There are great views of the the mountain over the Harbor which is made to be even prettier by the rising sun. A great way to start the day!

The location in general is fantastic as you can get to other parts of the island for day trips. The road does not go all the way around the island; is cut off in the North and West by the Na Pali Coast so to be centrally located saves you time for more experiences.

The Bear getting ready to Scuba Dive in Kauai!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 20, 2008

Upon opening the front door of Hale Pali Kai and seeing the entire opposite wall of the great room wide open to the lanai, we knew we were in for a very special stay. Much of our time here was spent on the lanai, watching the changing shadows on the mountains across the valley, the cruise ships arriving and departing from the harbor, and the many surfers, snorkelers, and beachcombers below and around Kalapaki Bay. This is pure luxury, from the upper loft bedroom with a superb pullout sofa and private bath, through the great room and kitchen, to the lower two master suites, each with a massive bathroom and private lanai. This home is designed for entertaining and comes alive in the evening when the sun goes down and the lights of the nearby resort come on. My friends and I spent most evenings chatting around the large granite-topped kitchen island or watching the sunsets from the lanai. The entertainment system is amazing, as are the flat screen TVs throughout the home. Everything you'll want including a wide variety of music (including traditional Hawaiian) and current movies on DVD is here. The free WiFi allowed us to keep in touch with the outside world...but we mostly ignored it! We golfed, dived, and even took a helicopter tour of the island. Everything is close by and Hale Pali Kai is the perfect place for a Bear and his friends to get away from the outside world. Signed, The VRBO Bear

Incredible house with amazing views!

The house was located on the best spot with the best view. Having the amenities of the Marriott made the house perfect! The furnishings and the kitchen were beautiful and impressive! I would highly recommend staying at this rental.... I wish I could live there!

A perfect place in a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 wonderful days in this exceptional condo in mid February. We were a total of seven people, two grandparents, 2 sons, a daughter-in law, a 2 1/2 year old and 8 month old. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The view from the main room and the two masters is stunning. It was great to watch the surfers, paddle boarders in the bay, the goings on at the Marriott Resort, and we were treated to at least three gorgeous rainbows. The condo is very spacious and the kitchen very well equipped for any cooking needs. Both master bedrooms have closets with hangers and dressers to place your clothes. We found this to be a nice touch as we didn't have to dig through our suitcases for 10 days. And having the use of a washing machine and dryer a real plus. We made use of the resort passes to the Marriott and that access is what really make this the perfect place to stay. As described it is a very easy walk and the Marriott has lots to offer. The condo is centrally located to many of the tourist sites and good restaurants. Only a couple of things to note. This is a three story condo so wouldn't be good for anyone with difficulty with stairs and there are several flights. In addition, Steve was very easy to deal with. One suggestion is not to pay the final payment with a credit card as the additional charge for using a credit card was very steep.

Incredible comfort and views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this cliffside house in July. The location is less than five minutes from the Lihue airport but we never experienced air traffic noise. We walked to the elevator which is about 500 ft from the house and which takes you directly to the Marriott Beach Resort grounds. The beach here is one which is protected from the open ocean and which our boys (7,9, 9)loved playing in. Kayak rentals and even surf lessons can be set up from the beachside shop here. The home even has some boogie boards which they utilized extensively. Im not sure if its the time of year, but this was not a crystal clear beach but the sands were perfect, the pool service from the Beach Resort was prompt and the food and drinks were great. We even utilized the small cooler in the garage to bring our own drinks and snacks to the beach. All beaches are public including this one so many folks bring their own things.

This is a three level home with the main floor consisting of an open, one-level kitchen with a comfortable living room overlooking Kalapaki beach. This is an air conditioned home. Due to high electrical costs in Hawaii the owner does make a point to ask that utilization be reduced when the home is not occupied. I appreciate prevailing winds but I don't like to be hot, especially on vacation. This was a nice plus as many rentals are not air conditioned. The home was immaculately clean upon our arrival. Our three boys and niece had ample room to relax. The kitchen is well appointed with a large stainless steel refrigerator which we stocked with groceries from Costco which is less than 10 minutes away (has all the same things our Costco had plus a few regional foods). We only used the entertainment system in the living room which is equipped with a nice variety of electronic equipment including a Roku. The bedrooms are huge and each comes with their own full size balcony. You can host a dinner party in each of the master bathrooms.

Other perks are the full sized washer and dryer and the outdoor shower.

Improvements that can be made include placing a regular bed in the loft bedroom off the main floor. This currently has pull out couch which was left in bed mode the entire time and which has little use as a couch.

We will plan on returning to this home which has a great location, incredible views and offers modern, clean luxury in a 2800 sq three level layout with AC!

Heaven is Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Just finished my stay at this property. It was everything that was advertised. You walk into the main room and you are taken away with the beautiful views of Kalapaki Beach. They you walk into the two bedrooms and you have the same beautiful views. Imagine going to sleep and waking up to waves crashing into the rocks below the home. Slept like a baby! Spent the majority of our time at the Marriott pool. Beach a stones throw from the pool. Walk to the pool and beach less than five minutes from the home. Never minded the walk because I knew I wouldn't be confined to a hotel room. My wife and I were able to use the jogging trials throughout the property and the golf course. Rented vehicle to get around Kauai. No problems with parking next to the home. Poipu and other kid friend beaches within 1/2 and hour from home. Good food at Dukes and Feral Pig. My trip ended on 4/10/15, and I still can't get the beautiful views out of my mind. Planning trip for next year. Thank you Steve for the use of your beautiful home!

Christmas in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice place to rent to celebrate my Mothers 70th Birthday over the 2014 Holidays, and could not have been happier with how everything worked out. We travel a few times a year and not sure we have ever stayed somewhere where the unit surpasses the online photos. All too often you're let down when you arrive and that could not have been more different in this case. Steve's unit exceeded our expectations in every way. The photos on the website do not do justice to the view when you walk in, and the location is perfect - Just a short elevator ride and your at the Marriott and all of their facilities. Everything inside the unit is clean, new, and all top notch. The bedrooms are huge with spectacular views and spacious bathrooms, and the location could not have been better. We didn't even need a car. Just about $11 to Costco via taxi and we were set for food and you still have access to all the Kalapaki Bay restaurants that are just a short walk away. We had a great time and have already booked a return trip...Highly Recommended !!!
