Beautiful condo nestled in a perfect location with unreal views of the Pacific ocean!
Our one week excursion at Alihi Lani #1 was absolutely wonderful. The unit was very high quality, well kept and super clean, the first moment we walked in, my wife turned to me with a big fat grin on her face. My wife isn’t easily impressed and with 3 small kids her first priority is always about cleanliness. The master bedroom was spacious and the bathrooms were nice sized and stocked with high quality towels, lotions, soap, and shampoo. Both beds were extremely comfortable and provided ample nights of good shuteye. The unit has many ceiling fans and when used in tandem with the standing fans the air flow was nice, we rarely used the AC units in the bedroom. But the Air conditioners came in handy when the kids needed to nap during the day or for the hotter than normal nights. The condo décor was very homey looking, all done in old fashion Hawaiian plantation style. Kitchen was fully equipped with utensils, pots, pans, and dinnerware; we even made good use of the sippy cups and Tupperware.
The pool was awesome and the lanai was top notch. Lots of lawn chairs, tables, and umbrellas were provided for lounging in the Hawaiian sun. We spent a full day hanging out at the pool with big smiles from all the kids. The view of the ocean is spectacular from the large patio deck.
The condo was stocked with lots of beach equipment (cooler, beach chairs with individual umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, etc…). We didn’t need to bring/buy anything from the store for our beach outings. I was amazed at how well stocked the unit was in all aspects. I honestly can’t think of anything that was overlooked.
The condo was very close to the shopping malls and within walking distance to the Sheraton beachfront and nearby restaurants. The location was perfect and we probably could have just stayed local for all of our grocery needs, but we did venture out to Costco to stock up on snacks for the kids.
Booking was a breeze through VBRO.com; Cynthia was very responsive to all of our questions. We ran into a few issues during our stay, but the onsite management folks (Bill/Kay) were quick to resolve them. I guess the only drawback of the unit is that it sets the bar very high. This place really spoiled us rotten. If you plan on staying here all you really need to do is pack light and get here safely, because all the necessities are provided. We give this place our highest recommendation!
Thanks Cynthia, Bill, and Kay for a memorable and relaxing stay in Kauai!
