About Cynthia Haines

Ever since we first visited Kauai prior to Hurricane Iniki, it has been our dream to own property and eventually retire from our hectic California lives to this idyllic island. My husband and I had our first vacation together in the Poipu area and have visited for several anniversaries since. We purchased Alihi Lani #5 so that we can eventually move to the island full-time. Meanwhile, it's yours and ours to enjoy part-time!

Cynthia Haines purchased this condo in 2012

Why Cynthia Haines chose Koloa

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 the 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.

Best Lanai, Best Turtle Viewing

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is WOW!! This is far more gorgeous than the photos. This is a luxury condo with an amazing view. We sat on the lanai for hours watching turtles, dolphins and tropical birds.

Very Nice Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week. It looks just like the pictures online. It was very clean and very well equipped. It's close to shopping and other amenities. No central air but on most days you don't miss it. The lanai is great for sitting out and just watching the ocean with enough space for dining as well. Be advised one of the master bedroom walls is composed of louvered slider doors to the living room. If you are staying in the master and want a lot of privacy from your other guests, it may not be for you. However it was just perfect for us, and I would stay there again.

Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
The condo was so convenient and comfortable. Had all the supplies we needed, could walk to the beach and restaurants and one shopping center. The beds and bedding were quite comfortable and we slept well. We used the boogie boards a lot. The view and lanai were fantastic - spent lots of time on that lanai. The place was very clean and well decorated, except the kitchen fan was dusty (but I don't clean my own fans often enough so can't complain). The wi-fi worked well the few times we used it. The trade winds were not active the first few days so during the middle of the afternoon we had to go into the bedrooms and run the portable ac units or fans, our you could use the pool which was never crowded. The Big Save market in downtown Kona worked well for buying some groceries so we could cook for ourselves some. My only recommendation would be to consider bringing a few of your own beach towels - the condo supplies 4 but if you have more than 2 people in your party you will be washing them all the time. Poipu beach was great (both the area by the Sheraton and the area by the park/playground). The best place we found to boogie board was in Hanalei Bay - had excellent conditions for surfing and boogie boarding. Rumfire in the Sheraton was a great place to have a drink while the sun set. If I was going to live in Kauai, it would be in this condo complex for sure. Thank you for a great stay.

It truly is THE place to stay in Poipu

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Kauai 15 times in my life and this was my first stay at Alihi Lani. I have stayed at the Sheraton, Kiahuna Plantation, Poipu Shores, Kuhio Shores and Poipu Kai. Without question, Alihi Lani is the best value. The location is the absolute best, the condo is clean and wonderfully equipped, and the owner and on-island managers are responsive, friendly and seem to truly care about their clients. Since there are only six units, you get to know your neighbors and build a community. The condo is ideal for two couples, which contributes to the good value. For food in Poipu, I recommend Keoki's Restaurant and Papalani Gelato. In Koloa, the Koloa Deli (Dee is super friendly and she will know your name if you come in more than twice), the taco truck and the Koloa Fish Market were our favorites. The man behind the counter at the fish market is so welcoming and helpful. In Kapaa try Tropical Dreams Ice Cream and Tiki Tacos. On the north shore, the best fish is at Kilauea Fish Market...ono fish tacos. For a round of golf that won't break the budget, play at Kukio'olono in Kalaheo. The best beach is Hanalei Bay, truly a magical place and worth the drive. I also recommend the day "trek" tour at Na Aina Kai garden on the north shore where birders will delight in the up close view of albatross and their chicks (March). If you want to do nothing, the Alihi Lani #5 lanai and pool are great. I highly recommend this property.

Truly "PARADISE" in Kauai

Truly "PARADISE" in Kauai
  • 5 of 5
Based on the VRBO listing info and conversations with the property manager, we had high hopes for our vacation accommodations. Our expectations were more than met with everything!!! The facilities were perfect, the furnishings complete, the kitchen very well stocked, the cleanliness great, and the property manager professional and friendly. We enjoyed the view and accommodations so much we ate all our meals on the lanai, all our cocktails on the lanai with camera in hand for the beautiful sunsets, and coffee in the mornings watching the sea turtles. When we go back, we will only stay here again, as anything less will not be acceptable to us anymore. Alihi Lani spoiled us forever!!

Lovely place, excellent location

  • 5 of 5
This lovely place is exactly as pictured. It is very clean and well maintained, all the furnishings and equipment were top notch, and it was convenient for walking to the beach, stores and restaurants. It is also right down the road from a 5 Star Sheraton resort. The views of the ocean are magnificent.

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.
