Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Alihi Lani #3 at Poipu Beach. As you enter the door you are immediately drawn to the splendor of the Pacific Ocean directly in front of you. New Air Conditioning units installed in the bedrooms can provide cooling throughout the open setting, although the prevailing ocean trade-winds supply natural air flow. As many of our guests mention in their reviews, "The pictures don't do it justice, the view is spectacular!"

Our premier ocean front condo has been completely upgraded with classic Hawaiian decor, including new living room furniture. Stroll on the cool natural stone floor throughout, enjoy the upgraded cherry cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances in the brand new kitchen, or relax watching your favorite sports or movies on 3 flat screen TVs. HDTV cable service is provided, including a wide variety of music channels.

Most of all, enjoy our new lanai furniture while you unwind on the covered Lanai and admire the ocean waves breaking over the coral, or the surfers trying to catch the next wave, and finally the sun-setting over the water during the winter months. Have you ever seen the 'green flash'?

This unit is 'the prime location' on the ground floor within this 6 unit complex, close to the pool and BBQ grill area. Relax and unwind on the lanai for 'happy hour' and enjoy our newly refinished pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Private parking is located in the rear of the building, allowing direct entry, no stair climbing to the 2nd floor.

The living and dining area has been upgraded with new furniture, including a 60" flat screen HDTV, along with an HD/DVD, DVD movies, CD player and several paperback books. Our new sofa has a hide-a-bed with a plush 7" mattress for guest comfort.

The new Kitchen is fully equipped and upgraded with stainless appliances, including the Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Range and Microwave. New Cherry cabinets and beautiful granite counter tops finish off this convenient area to gather and make your meals.

The Master Bedroom includes a fantastic California King sized bed, along with a 32" wall mounted flat screen TV. The adjoining bathroom has also been tastefully upgraded with a new vanity, mirror and stone shower surrounding the bath tub.

The Guest Bedroom includes two twin beds that can be combined to make into a Queen sized bed if desired, and a small flat screen TV. The second bathroom is right around the corner from this room, and includes a newly vanity, mirror and upgraded stone shower.

Initial supplies of local island soap, shampoo and conditioner, along with Kauai coffee and cookies, are provided to make your first morning on the island special. All of your towels and linens are provided, along with a full size washer and dryer for your use. Laundry detergent is provided.

Relax in the sun at our private pool, cook your meals on our 2 new Weber BBQ gas grills, or take a short walk to the sandy beaches. The nearest beach is located 2 blocks east of us in front of the Sheraton Hotel. Hawaiian state law declares all beaches are public for everyone to enjoy. Beach chairs, Boogie Boards, towels, mats, an umbrella and a portable cooler are available for your use.

Stock up at the Costco in Lihue and get ready to relax in our prime location on the south shore of Kauai. The small village of Koloa is within a mile and has a Big Save grocery store which will meet most of your food and beverage needs.

Our property is fully licensed with the State of Hawaii to collect General Excise Tax (GE-123-225-7024-01) and Transient Accommodations Tax (TA-123-225-7024-01). We welcome your rental inquiries and promise to make your rental experience memorable.

Why Ron Johnson chose South Shore

Our first visit to Kauai in 2004 made a lasting impression and resulted in our purchase of this property the following year. Our desire is to provide an upscale home away from home for visitors tired of the hotel experience.

Great Condo with Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience staying at Alihi Lani #3. The condo was even better than we hoped for. Everything was clean and organized, which made settling in that much easier. The kitchen and bathrooms are new and updated and we found the entire condo to be furnished well and very comfortable. The view from the lanai is amazing! We saw several sea turtles swimming in the surf just in front of the condo as well as multiple pods of dolphins and occasional whale blows/spouts while hanging out on the lanai or in one of the lounge chairs by the pool. The position for #3 is ideal because while on the lanai you can't see the adjacent condos in the complex and it's also an end unit so no neighbors on the bedrooms side. It feels very private and secluded. The pool and BBQs are just steps away and are very well maintained. There is a very nice sandy beach in front of the Sheraton just a few minutes walk from the condo and also several great places to snorkel nearby. We will definitely try to stay here again the next time we're on the south shore of Kauai.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two kids, 2 and 4. With our stroller, we could walk everywhere, beaches, groceries and shopping. Awesome sunsets, great private pool, and a very comfy suite. So awesome. Also, Ron was a pleasure to deal with. Great experience from start to finish. Would definitely return in a heartbeat.

Truly Outstanding Poipu property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay! The ocean view is outstanding! Ron is a dream to work with and the condo feels like "home". Allen, the "pool guy" was great too. Saw him later working at "1849" restaurant and he comp'ed us free desserts! Everything is within walking distance from this beautiful unit! Mahalo Ron!!

The Best Hawaii Property we have Found!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is incredible! To begin with, the ocean view from the unit is unreal. It also has a very nice back deck that has a great eating table where you can (and should) eat your meals. Watching sunsets at dinner was a great way to wind down after long days of being outside. The unit was well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear. It has a great washer and dryer (not all units have these in Hawai, we have found) and air conditioning. One of the best features about air conditioning in Kauai is that it provides white noise so you can't hear all of the roosters crowing early in the morning (they are all over the island!). The unit is in small complex, which means you can really utilize the beautiful swimming pool and not feel crowded. Another nice feature is that parking is easy, as the spaces are quite wide (another rarity for space challenged Hawaii). In terms of location, the unit is located within walking distance to a very nice beach in front of the Sheraton and a good overlooked snorkeling place called Koloa Landing (boat ramp) which in my opinion has the best snorkeling on the southern part of Kauai). You can also walk to the two main shopping centers in Poipu from this unit. Overall, if you are looking to have a Kauai vacation, I would strongly recommend this unit. My family of four (2 kids aged 10 and 8) absolutely loved it. I would definitely stay here again if we visit Kauai in the future.

Great.

  • 4 of 5

First time at Alihi Lani. Best combination of ocean front and pool access of any property we have stayed at on Kauai. Loved it.

Owner's Response: I am amazed and disappointed this guest did not rate our property a 5 star review. Their original reservation dates were impacted by our Board approving a roofing project. Several months in advance, I informed our guest of this plan and helped to rearrange their dates by reducing the rate to cover the cost of changing his airline tickets. The comments don't reflect anything negative and say this is a great place to stay. Can't figure this one out...?

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

Alihi Lani #3 is a great place to stay - all the prior comments about location and proximity to beaches, snorkeling ( Koloa Landing is less than a qtr mile and one of our favorite places to snorkel - many turtles every time we went out) surfing and good restaurants are spot on. The property is nicely furnished and our family of four was very comfortable. We really enjoyed having sunset barbecues by the pool overlooking the sea. Would highly recommend and hope to be back again. I also would note that the owner Ron is very prompt, professional and helpful.
