Koloa Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

*We NEVER will ask you for a WIRE* If anyone ever asks you to wire money - you may be a victim of a scam!!! Always call us if you want any information. We are not overseas - we are in California.

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 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.

Alihi Lani #5: Ocean Front Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Alihi Lani #5. We were on the island for just over 3 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. Cynthia has ensured the condo has all the extra amenities, including a drying rack and boogie boards. We went out for excursions most days, but spent a few days by the pool and enjoying grounds. A/C in the bedrooms is essential is you like a cool room for sleeping. I'm sure we'll be back to this well-appointed condo!

Fantastic condo and location

  • 5 of 5

With this being our 1st time to Kauai, I did a lot of research on lodging based upon what we wanted and was excited to come across this unit. When we arrived to Alihi Lani, the well appointed unit and incredible view exceeded our expectations! We were out and about every day exploring this wonderful island, but we were always anxious to return to the condo in the afternoon to use the great pool out front, watch the sunset, and enjoy an evening meal and drinks on the lanai (great furniture for relaxing). The unit interior has everything you need. We also met Cynthia while we were there and she is very warm and helpful and had great suggestions for things to do. We can't wait to return!

Best Condo Ever

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazing.we stayed here for 3 weeks with our friends and had a fantastic vacation. The views are breathtaking and we enjoyed many meals on the Lanai watching the sunset. It was really great to have a sofa and arm chair on the lanai where you could relax and look at the ocean where we often saw dolphins and turtles.

The kitchen has everything you need and more to cook great meals. My husband was previously a chef and cooked some fantastic meals. There are even herbs and spices available.

This is the best condo we have ever stayed in and will definitely be returning. The bedrooms are comfortable and both have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning for those hot days when the trade winds are not blowing.

The lounge area was so comfortable with a great sofa and Arm chair. There is a great selection of DVDs.

The pool was great and we often had the pool to ourselves.

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.

Map

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.
