About the property

Breathtaking Setting - The Pacific Ocean Is Your Backyard!!!

Aloha and E Komo Mai (welcome)!

Our Hale Makai ('Ocean house') is a spectacular home at a great value. A rare corner unit with gorgeous 180 degree ocean views from all rooms and the wrap-around lanai, we invite you to come here, relax and enjoy the aloha that our vacation home provides (and that Kauai is world-famous for!). Please watch the short VIDEO of our place (by the photo window) - you will LOVE our condo!!!

The View

Our condo sits on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean and both bedrooms and the living room boast breathtaking ocean views. Wake up to an ocean view from your bed, fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, have your morning coffee on the lanai and soak up the unspoiled ocean view. In season, watch the whales frolic and the albatross soar by without ever leaving. Also, our condo faces north so from the lanai you can also catch the colorful kaleidoscope of sunrise skies to the east and sunset skies to the west. Our condo is your front row seat to all of the above!

The Accommodations

Our condo is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit that sleeps five comfortably and is furnished with tropical, island-style decor. The master has a cal-king bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed, both with very comfortable plush-top mattresses and 700+-thread count linens. There is also a full-size air bed (which inflate and deflates in minutes). The master bedroom also has 35" smart TV - so you can use your Hulu/Amazon Prime/NetFlix account to stream your favorite movies.

The floor plan is open and airy, and the condo flows from a well-appointed kitchen and island/bar to a separate dining area and comfortably furnished living area. For your entertainment, there is a 37-inch flat panel Smart TV (Roku/Netflix/Hulu/etc.) and a Sony iPod/CD stereo system in the living room. There are ceiling fans throughout, as well as ample windows in our corner condo to catch the crisp, tropical breeze. We also provide snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, and other beach gear to suit all you needs.

The Ali'i Kai complex

Ali'i Kai is a small, quiet complex of 56 units spread over seven buildings. Lushly landscaped with palm trees, birds of paradise, hibiscus, and plumeria trees, the grounds are gorgeous. Ali'i Kai features a resort-style pool, as well as tennis court privileges at the Makai Tennis Club. There are charcoal BBQs in several locations nearby. The inviting walk/jog path that runs through Princeville - with breathtaking views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other - is only a half-mile away.

If you have questions, please call or email. Also, because I know that a trip to Hawaii is a major expense and for many it's the trip of a lifetime, I take seriously my responsibility to make your stay a memorable one. I will do everything I can to make you happy!

And if you need another condo or this one is booked for your dates, we also own VRBO listing# 316531.

About John Anderson

I am Texas-born and bred Hawaii lover. I lived on Kauai for a time and it was the experience of a lifetime! Now I get my Kauai fix by visiting several times a year and enjoying our oceanfront piece of paradise.

John Anderson purchased this condo in 2012

Why John Anderson chose North Shore

We bought here for three reasons: ocean view, ocean view, ocean view :).

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is perfect for relaxing and allowing the stresses of the mainland to melt away. We wake up to the sounds and sights of the early morning sunrise over the ocean and spend the evenings relaxing on the lanai, entranced by the glorious beauty of Kauai. What could be better?

Great place to stay on Kauai's north shore

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. We saw a whale the first day from the deck! We also watched many a sunrise too.

The condo had an excellent cross breeze, shade on the deck and ceiling fans all of which kept the condo very comfortable.

The kitchen was nicely stocked and we appreciated beach gear being on hand to use. The roomy unit was a bonus for our 10 days there. If you love the north shore this is a great, central location. Would highly recommend this unit.

Great condo with an fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this condo for an amazing week! The unit is quite comfortable, very nicely equipped, and QUIET! The property itself is well kept and is very conveniently located to shopping and restaurants (within a very short distance). There is also a great walking trail close by, if you are so inclined. The owner has also made sure to supply beach items for those treks to the local beaches!

I loved being able to start my mornings sitting out on the lanai sipping my coffee and watching the Albatross fly! Such an easy way to start the day! Each of the bedrooms (and the living room) have the most incredible view of the ocean! This means, with the windows open, I was completely immersed in sounds of crashing waves and view to die for... I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing vacation!

I totally recommend this property for your stay in Kauai! The place is great...and the owner, John, is a pleasure to work with. My only regret? I didn't stay longer.... :)

Great View!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Alii Kai Condominums in early March. The view from the lanai is fabulous especially when the whales are going by. It is a very nice well kept property. It is also very quiet. The unit itself is very spacious, both couples have their own bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and there is also beach stuff for the many beautiful beaches nearby. Nice Place. I would recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Kauai. Mike. L.

Beautiful and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

This condo overlooks the ocean from all rooms, has everything you need including 2 bathrooms, fully supplied with coffee maker and cooking utensils and even games, ice chest, beach bags & towels and snorkeling gear for heading out for the day. Conveniently located a mile away from a great grocery store and the main road that connects to all the north shore towns and beaches. We are so glad we stayed here rather than a hotel or resort. Even has free wifi and Netflix. Our family had a great time!

Great view at a property that needs upgrading

  • 3 of 5

A 5 for the view and the comfortable beds but a 2 for the property that needs upgrading really bad. Some of the windows don't work and there are gaps between the screens and the window frames in several locations that let the flies in, we spent a lot of time swatting flies. We could see where other condos in the complex had their windows replaced. The springs in the couch cushions are broken and uncomfortable to sit on. A light fixture in the master bath is broken and held in place with a screw. Etc. Etc.

Owner's Response: Aloha Tim, I'm very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. I take my responsibility to provide a great guest experience very seriously and regret that I let you down. I also feel like your broad comment that this is a "property that needs upgrading" is unfair and paints a dire picture that is divorced from reality. Out of 200+ plus guests I've had, none has shared your reaction to the condo (which has had significant upgrades to kitchen, living area, master, lanai, guest bath, etc. since 2012). In fact the 5-star review that appears right below yours is from the guest that stayed there for three weeks just prior to you and has already booked three weeks next February. Is the condo perfect and immune from having things break or falter now and then? Of course not. The two issues you mentioned - the light and sofa - were addressed in early March. As far as the flies, you paint a picture of windows with large gaps where they are unscreened and this is patently false. I've never experienced flies in all my time at the condo and nor has any other guest mentioned it to me. I do wish you would have told me about it while you were there as I would have had the property manager come by to try to figure out what was going on. All that said, I do regret that you had a negative experience. Mahalo, John.

Outstanding location! Corner unit on the cliffs affords a panoramic view and sound of the breakers rolling in and the whales cavorting off shore and even the occasional Cruise Ship (the owner has even been so thoughtful as to leave a great set of Nikon Binoculars to facilitate an even closer view!).

The unit is well-equipped with everything you'll need and as described and pictorially depicted by the owner. But, one thing he forgot to mention is that he has provided a Roku with the TV!! This allows one to view Netflix (Free), Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, etc!! So, you'll want to have your Passwords if you're a Subscriber and wish to purchase an offering.

Makae GC, a beautiful, Troon-managed and maintained golf course is but a 2 minute drive away. Foodland, a great grocery store is 5 minutes (1.7 miles) away. Lots of places to eat but eating out is pretty pricey, so you might appreciate being able to cook and eat in and this property is equipped to help you do so.

John Anderson, the owner, is extremely accommodating, easy to contact, and very responsive.

We highly recommend you consider renting this property. We plan on doing so again next year!!
