We just returned from Kauai, with the last three days spent at Alihi Lani unit #2, which we rented through Poipu Connections. The unit is very spacious, well maintained, well furnished, including things that made our stay easier like washer/dryer, dishwasher, beach toys, etc. It was very comfortable, with a lovely view of the ocean right out the front room and lanai. The kids enjoyed the small pool, but we mostly used this as a base for expeditions to nearby Poipu Beach Park - great snorkeling at only 5 minutes drive or 20 minute walk. Our condo neighbors said they often saw sea turtles and whales from the condo, which we didn't, but clearly the rocky area just over the sea wall would be a great spot to watch.
The condo was pretty quiet - only 6 units in the building, so we occasionally heard upstairs neighbors or next door showers, but mostly it felt very calm, relaxed, easy...but those darn roosters that are all over Kauai will keep you up if you don't bring earplugs. We never heard traffic noise either...
It's right next door to the Poipu Kapili, and just down from the Sheraton, so a very, very convenient location. We would definitely consider staying there again.
