New Ownership. This property is newly owned and managed by us, but we have had other rentals in Poipu since 2005 and in California since 2000. This experience means we to know how to provide you a memorable vacation.
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!
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.
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.

Oceanfront : Our lanai offers the best view of ocean life available while sipping a beverage on dry land! Sea turtles live in the rocks just off the coast in front of our home. Dolphins and whales are also frequently sited. Most of the year we have spectacular sunsets right in front of us.
Ocean View : With our second floor location less than 50 yards from the pounding surf, the view will captivate you from the minute you walk in the front door. You can see and hear the ocean from the large covered lanai, living room, dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom.
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.
