Alihi Lani called us back and it did not disappoint. As I sit here writing this in windy cold Chicago, my thoughts of the ocean breeze warms my heart. Alihi Lani#1 is a beautiful condo about 20 yards from the ocean. It is highly recommended as Cynthia, the owner, gives this property a home like feel. All the little details seem to be thought of to make our stay fantastic. I've been to Kauai about 7 times and this condo rates #1!

Could not have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

Not only does this property have an amazing view -- if I could sit out on that lanai every morning my blood pressure would be great -- but it was clean, nicely furnished and the kitchen was equipped wonderfully. We walked in and as my son said, we hit a home run with this condo. It felt like home, even live plants were there.

This is a two bedroom which was perfect for us with another couple, two great bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, each with A/C. Cynthia, the contact was wonderful. If we return we will want a one bedroom but I will hope to go through Cynthia again. I can not honestly say anything negative for this property except for the air conditioning being noisy but Cynthia has told me that is being replaced.

You can walk to beaches, which is nice if there are two couples who do not want to do the same thing. The beach there is a coarse sand so it does make walking on the sand a bit more difficult but you can walk along the walkway in front of hotels and condos on the way to the beach. I would return here in a heartbeat.

What more can I say?

Awesome oceanfront with pool!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Alihi Lani!

The ocean is right out front and the beautiful pool kept us refreshed as we sat in our lounge chairs.

The condo itself was perfect - comfy beds and full kitchen. We had plenty of room and seating to eatch TV as we listened to the waves outside.

Convenient to the Poipu beaches and restaurants / you will find Alihi Lani to be a perfect base for exploring the island. That is if you can bring yourself to leave the pool and it’s amazing view! Highly recommend!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting to spend some quality time on Kauai with an ocean view and comfortable accommodations for your family, this is the place! As many have stated, Alihi Lani #1 is a wonderfully appointed condo with amazing views. Being on the first floor, our kids (12 and 10) walked out the slider, down the steps of the lanai, straight into the pool. My husband and I spend every morning with coffee on the lanai, and most evenings there as well. We never tired of the view, the sound of the waves, and watching the sights from our little slice of paradise.

We loved the extra touches included in the condo - welcoming coffee & cookies (!!!) and a great supply of condiments in the kitchen (no need to buy mustard or syrup or Ziploc bags - those types of things that you never know what to expect). Also a great assortment of items to use at the beach - coolers, beach towels & chairs, umbrella (although both times we took it to the beach it was too windy to use!), snorkel masks, etc. There were far more amenities provided than typically seen in a rental, which added to the enjoyment of the stay.

Being July in Kauai, it was warm and humid. There are three stand up fans in the main living area, ceiling fans in every room, and A/C units in the bedrooms. I didn't notice much of a natural breeze coming through and the fans helped tremendously. We would turn on the AC in the bedrooms at the end of the day and close the doors to keep the cool in. After a couple days we discovered the shade that comes down at the end of the lanai to block the afternoon sun - and used it every day after!

The only 'issue' we had was with the WiFi. It was extremely slow and disconnected quite a bit. Cynthia tried to resolve the problem but due to timing, it wasn't able to be fixed until after we left.

Overall, we loved our stay and definitely want to come back. When someone asked about my favorite part of the trip, I immediately thought of sitting on my lanai with that gorgeous view. We did a lot of different great activities on the island, but that view is something that was so hard to leave and will stay with me. Thank you.

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing!! Our family had a wonderful vacation staying at Alihi Lani!! It is a beautiful location with stunning views, peaceful atmosphere and well kept grounds. The condo was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The soft music playing when we entered made us feel welcomed right away and thoughtful details by the owner throughout the home made it even more special.

Our 5 year old daughter loved swimming in the pool every night, we bbq'd most of our meals on the grill overlooking the ocean and enjoyed spending time on the lanai (we even saw a few rainbows!). We walked down to the seawall to watch the sea turtles every morning, in the evening saw some awesome sunsets. Shopping, beaches and activities are close by.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home! It is a very special place. We can't wait to come back next year!
