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.

Why Cynthia Haines chose Poipu

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

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was fantastic. The view was great, especially at sunset! The place was clean and had modern finishes. Cynthia was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect stay near Poipu Beach, Kauai

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as beautiful as the pictures, probably more so! The view from the lanai was amazing....morning, noon and night! You get a great sunset. We could see sea turtles from the lanai. This is a great location on the south shore, near Poipu beach. There are two plazas with restaurants and shops nearby. One you can walk to for coffee in the morning and ice cream in the evening. My two teenage sons loved that we had space to spread out as opposed to just a hotel room. Having a kitchen for drinks, snacks and breakfast was a huge bonus, teenagers are hungry all the time so it saved us some money to stock up from the grocery store. The bedrooms stay nice and cool w/ the AC, the rest of the condo was quite warm in the afternoon and evenings sometimes uncomfortably so. If you needed to shower and "get ready" to go out it was hot. The fans and the breeze made a huge difference and helped a lot. The complex was quiet and the pool was very nice. They have everything you need, even beach chairs! Poipu Beach and Shipwreck beach are both close by... a short drive. We would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay again.

Alihi Lani 5 is A great location and beautifully decorated and maintained condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect. Location on the shore - so daily viewing of sea turtles, snorkel, scuba is right there...the unit is wonderfully maintained and nicely decorated. Kitchen is well stocked. Pool is very nice and the entire 6 unit complex is very well maintained. Beach is walkable or very short drive. This location is 30 min from airport for helicopter tours and 30 min from ports for cruises. Will definitely return...:)

Fantastic Stay in Beautiful Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from a five night stay at the property and had an amazing stay. This was the first stop in our honeymoon, and was the perfect place to kick off our trip!

The condo is clean, comfortable and has gorgeous views of the ocean. It's centrally located to all the amazing activities Kauai has to offer, and is a short drive or walking distance to great restaurants and beaches.

I spent most mornings on the lanai drinking my Kauai roasters coffee and watching the sea turtles swim in the ocean - it really doesn't get much better than that!!

The condo also has great practical features like a washer-dryer, beach chairs, towels, bug spray, sunscreen, etc. All in all a great stay - we hope to be back soon!!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Alihi Lani! This is the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in. We had everything we could possibly need during our stay. We ate breakfast and dinner most days on the Lanai watching the turtles or the sunset. We were very close to all the things we wanted to do. We loved having the beach chairs and coolers too. We did some snorkeling, hiked Waimea canyon and did a sunset dinner cruise up the NaPali coast. This was our first trip to Hawaii and one of the most memorable vacations ever. We hope to come back again & again.

Poipu
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.
