Great location but needs some sprucing up
Reviewed by: Marcia M. recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2016 Alii Kai 3013 is right on the cliff, with awesome views with the LOUD roar of the surf at our feet- really one of the best oceanside locations in the Alii Kai condos. The kitchen was well stocked, lots of beach supplies, plenty of towels and blankets, comfortable beds, huge washer and dryer. However, the decor was dreary and not right for a cheerful tropical vacation! The bedspreads were a dull beige and the art posters on the walls were faded to gray!The first thing we did was dig out some old tropical bedspreads from the closet. One bathroom needs updating, too. The location is great but owner needs to put a little money into decor and sprucing the place up.
A guest from Alhambra, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 The view was beautiful and the rental was spacious and clean. However, the screens in the master headroom and for the balcony aren't installed properly. Therefore tons of bugs come in through the screens. We weren't able to open those windows or have the balcony open which was disappointing because we were looking forward to listening to the ocean. The unit doesn't have AC so it was really warm and stuffy, especially with all the windows closed.
A guest from Rockwall, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2016 Beautiful oceanfront setting on cliff with beach access only for the adventuresome. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Our place became "command-central" for our travelling companions to join us. Furnishings very adequate with some upgrades. TVs (smaller) and internet worked well. Good access to all areas on the north side of the island. Would definitely recommend this property for others. Well worth the extra cost. Did not need to contact owner or manager for any issues.
Russell F. from Palm Harbor, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 Great location with incredible unobstructed ocean views. Had everything we needed and the north shore location was ideal.
helen t. from riverside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2016 The view was wonderful. The only problem we had was that the fan in the bedroom did not work and it took over 5 days to replace.
A guest from Bracebridge, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2016 overall very good - though there were a few issues. The coffee maker was non-functional (and replaced during our stay) and many of the electrical outlets did not work. The master bedroom was small and was difficult to cool properly at night
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 This condo was clean and well furnished. The location and the views at the top of a ridge overlooking the ocean could not have been any better. In fact, I thought the online pictures of the views from this condo had been digitally enhanced. The real views are even better than the online pictures!
Deborah P. from Citrus Heights, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We were very please with this property. It was one of the cleanest we have stayed in on our many trips to Kauai. No problem accessing the unit and all information was provided ahead of time so there were no questions necessary. The location is quiet with the only sound being the ocean crashing outside. For several days we watched sea turtles playing off the shore below. I would highly recommend this unit to couples or a family!
Nancy C. from Wilton, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2016 This is the perfect location for gorgeous views over the Pacific, high on a bluff with the ocean below. Great indoor space and amenities. Generous supply of towels and beach chairs, cooler and kitchen tools. Great that it is on the second level, but easy walk fro parking lot, so no stairs involved. Very clean. Our only suggestion is to replace the outdoor table and chairs..they are heavily rusted with crumbling edges (sharp too!). Perhaps the owner is not even aware, since it was in good shape when we were here last year. Ahh Aloha and on site manager very responsive and attentive to requests. Highly recommend!
A guest from Salem, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 22 days in January, 2016 Of course Kauai is amazing. The view from this condo is fabulous from all rooms. It's roomy and well stocked, convenient, a few things that I would've liked better though. The deck is very small with a very rusted table that is far too big. My daughter get stabbed by a rusty piece of metal poking out of the table and needed a tetanus shot. Also, I would replace the railing with acrylic or something as view is blocked right at horizon level if you sit down. There really isn't other good outdoor (lawn) place to sit without violating someone else's privacy. Also the beds are VERY firm. If you like that you'll be happy. I woke with a sore back every day. We had an issue with the screen door. My husband called them and it was fixed immediately. Overall the property is beautiful and it was a great vacation.
Terri Q. from Livermore, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2015 Condo was light and breezy and the neighborhood was quiet. Outstanding view looking out at the ocean. Saw whales from afar breaching and tropicbirds and albatross at play. Pleasingly good size two bedroom condo with two bathrooms. Condo was clean. Kitchen is large and well stocked with utensils. Furniture is in good shape and so was the condo with a few exceptions. The door to the lanai was damaged upon arrival. Maintenance came the next day and made it workable. Washer and dryer worked well and were a must for us with all our snorkeling and outdoor activities. We specifically wanted a condo with internet access. The condo has internet but it was not working when we arrived. Cable company replaced modem, cables, and splitter. The router was not replaced but it is old and flaky and should be replaced. Condo is well stocked with beach gear. We made use of the cooler, mats, towels, snorkeling fins and boogie boards. We appreciated having these provided. Great location if you like walking on lonely beaches, hiking, snorkeling on reef-protected calm waters, swimming, and watching wildlife. The area had fantastic views of the lush mountains and everyday we had dramatic skies with clouds rolling each day and rainbows.Overall it was a good choice for us. We enjoyed our stay. We were comfortable in the condo and we enjoyed the view and the amenities. My one complaint is that I expect obvious things to be working such as doors and the internet services, if little things don't workI understand, and guests should not be expected to verify services and things such as doors work. As for the internet issue, the expectation by the owners is that it was the guest's responsibility to get the internet fixed. The guest book instructed us to call the company if all else failed. Seems backwards to me. The owners should be responsible. To be fair these issues though bothersome did not detract much from our vacation.
Lindsey K. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 3103 has a once in a lifetime view. Though we didn't see any, i'm assuming whale watching would be pretty amazing here. This is why I booked specifically. Hawaii is humid and has lots of critters in all that greenery so we expected a few bugs, however there is a serious infestation of little milipeeds, cockroaches and small nats. Luckily these things didn't ruin our trip, however it's a serious situation.
A guest from Juneau, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 Alii Kai 3103 had some of the most stunning ocean views I have ever seen. There was nothing better than sitting on the lanai drinking coffee and watching the turtles play in the surf below in the morning and falling to sleep with the sound of the surf at night.
Kathleen M. from Richland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2015 Living room furniture and all carpeting has been replaced since my last visit giving the unit a fresh, clean appearance. The only problem was with the wifi which seemed to get slow then drop out at certain times of day. Can't blame that on the rental, though, there just wasn't enough bandwidth from the isp when everyone first got home and just before bedtime.
Robert L. from San Anselmo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 The condo was perfect. Just what I was looking for. The view was spectacular. The bedrooms were well prepared. The kitchen was adequate. It would have been better if it had more of the basics,salt, pepper etc.I really appreciated all the beach supplies.Overall an excellent place.
Dale P. from Poulsbo, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Based on the reviews that I read on this unit, my expectations were very high. This view from this unit did not disappoint. WOW! 180 degrees of uninterrupted Pacific Ocean view.We were waffling between this unit and a unit at the nearby Cliffs Resort. I am so glad we chose Alii Kai and particular unit 3103. We walked to The Cliffs to see what we were missing. While there might be better amenities at The Cliffs (upscale pool, hot tub, tennis courts), the units were set so far back from the bluff that it didn't seem as personal. Unit 3103 sits really close to the bluff. It was so wonderful falling to sleep every night to the sound of the waves pounding the rocks below and the gentle breeze from the trade winds. There were two boogie boards and two sets of masks/snorkel/fins in the closet to use, as well as a full size cooler. Also full size and plush beach towels to use.One disappointing thing about the unit was that the master bedroom and bathroom (with the fancy fixtures in the photos) had the two queen size beds in them (due to size constraints, I imagine). So the kids got the master bed and bath, and the parents stayed in the smaller guest room! Oh well. Also, the unit was starting to show a bit of its age. The screen door to the lanai was difficult to work as was the lock on the sliding door. The screen door at the entry door didn't really close.Because the buildings curve, the privacy was incredible. We felt like we owned the cliff and rarely saw our neighbors. Overall, a great unit for the price compared to other nearby units. Well worth the extra money spent for the view.
Michael G. from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 Pictures seem to be a bit out of date. Would have liked to have seen that the unit has no AC a bit more highlighted, something most probably assume have it, without thinking to look that it may not.
Steven P. from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2015 This is our second stay at Alii Kai and while I would recommend the property, I wouldn't recommend unit 3103 until it's had some upgrages.
A guest from santa rosa, California recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 We thought the furniture in the pictures was not the same and very uncomfortable in the living room. The large room was lovely and 2 friends slept there which upset us because if we had known it was the master w 2 beds, we would not have selected it. The fridge is noisy and the carpet and tile were nice. But the washer/dryer were so noisy that it was imposible to watch TV in the living room. The towels and sheets were wonderful and new.
Nancy C. from Wilton, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in January, 2015 Absolutely fabulous location and view from every room. Spacious and very clean. Upgrade to the master bath is very lovely. Overall very comfortable with good high tech TV/internet capability. Beds and pillows very comfortable. We were very, very pleased. My only suggestions are to replace the living room sofa and chair that were likely very attractive originally, but are now covered with velour throws since the original upholstery is a bit stained. The throws are functional but really detract from the ambience of that room. Not a big deal but worth bringing to owners' attention. Overall loved it and hope to return soon.
A guest from Mission Viejo, California does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 View was great, but no beach access. Furniture was old. Kauai's cable TV is horrible. TV was small and it took us a while to find the remote under the sofa. Had to buy a lot of toilet paper, paper towels, dish and clothes washer soap. Having said all that, the stay was OK for the price, but I've stayed at much nicer condos on both the north and south shores.
Patricia S. from Bel Air, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 The unit was fabulous. Great kitchen (we cooked in 3 nights), washer/dryer REALLY helped with all the bathing suit/towel washing from snorkeling trips. The view off the balcony was STUNNING. Bedrooms were excellent. Baths too. If you want to be in Princeville, this unit is a great choice.
John L. from Centennial, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in July, 2014 Views and location awesome. Balcony and windows can view sun rise and sun set...ocean is right there! If you are into snorkeling/diving, we had the best snorkeling on the island right down from our condo...turtles, monk seals, rays and reef fish everyday. Coral tunnels and canyons both directions. Spacious grounds; not stacked on top of each other, mature landscape, great location. Our unit needed updating...blankets used over the sofa and chair due to soiling and wear on the furniture itself. Mattress on bed in second room should be replaced. Quiet and relaxing location, yet near golf, stores, hiking and ocean.
Paul M. from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 It was my family's first time visiting Kauai. The Alii Kai, unit 3103 was a perfect place for us to stay. It has ocean views from every room, a nice kitchen supplied with every gadget, and is well stocked as far as towels and beached gear are concerned. If you don't mind going to sleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean, then this is the place. The Princeville and Hanalei areas are fantastic, as well as the tropical setting. Our kids enjoyed the cable television channels when we weren't enjoying the water. Mahalo!
Linda M. from Portland, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014 This condo is in an excellent location directly overlooking the north shore. 180 degree views are from both bedrooms and living area, and of course from the lanai! I have stayed in another condo in this complex and that one was way more updated and nicer. This one is has not been updated except for one bathroom. I would have enjoyed newer features for example newer bedding and pillows, window shades, lights, and tile floor throughout rather than carpet. The unit did have everything we needed as far as appliances, dishes, towels, and beach gear.
Kathleen M. from Richland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in May, 2014 Well stocked kitchen. Lots of fun watching the paddle boarders and kayakers, etc. Watched turtles from the lanai. Only negative is that this unit is the farthest from the swimming pool. If we hadn't been to the beach that day we usually went for a late afternoon swim. Still, it only took about five minutes to walk there.
James K. from Pendleton, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 We enjoyed our stay very much, the views we excellent in every room. The toilet seat was broke when we arrived and promptly fixed. The only complaint albeit very minor was there was no ESPN so after a long day at the beach I wanted to watch the NFL draft and have a few drinks I ended up watching it online. Overall a good property in an excellent location. I would certainly not hesitate to stay here again if I were to return to Kauai!!
A guest from Anaheim, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 Alii Kai 3103 - This is a wonderful condo in a wonderful location and we had a wonderful time in Kauai and in the Princville area. However, there was one major problem which was that the beds, all of them, are VERY HARD (not firm, they're hard like concrete). They're so hard that we slept on the couch a couple of nights. We had to purchase a bed cover and add multiple blankets to the bed in order to make it somewhat comfortable. I remember seeing this as a problem with this property on some online reviews, but didn't take it to heart. Unfortunately, I don't know that I would stay in this specific condo again unless the beds were replaced, which is extremely unfortunate because we loved the location and property.Thank you.
A guest from Meridian, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2014 The ocean view was wonderful as we could see whales from our balcony. The furniture did not look like the pictures as the couches had slip covers. Underneath the covers were dirty couches.
Jerry G. from Durham, ME does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 Worse pool on surrounding grounds, no hot tub. Very musty smell upon arrival. Couch and chairs had a blanket drapped over them, did not look Hawaiian or smell that way. Banana fake plant in living room had about 2" of dust on leaves. Could not sleep on musty smelling pillow cases, had to wash them the next morning. Screen door was broken, Towel rack in master bath was broken. Broken leg on table on lanai, could not use table. Beach items were in a basket on lanai, filled with standing water, very gross. Blinds in kitchen very difficult to open. Mirror on wall had streaks from something running down. Very extremely untidy and to think we paid $130 for cleaning!! Would not recommend to anyone or go there again.
A guest from Beamsville, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in February, 2014 The weather in Kauai was so with 5 days of rain. The condo had a great location. The carpets were pretty stained though in the living room & the one bedroom had a mold smell in it. One night it rained so hard, the rain was coming in through the closed bedroom & living room windows. The outdoor table had one rusted out leg that fell off causing the table to tilt. Overall though we had a great time & being able to look out your window & see whales jumping is worth every penny.We would likely stay there again if we ever went back to Kauai.
Bonnie F. from Highlands Ranch, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in October, 2013 This was my first trip to Hawaii and I wanted to stay in the island of Kauai and more specifically, the North Shore. The pictures on the website did't give this condo its justice. You can sit above the ocean on the lanai, and hear the crashing waves while you relax in this lush paradise. Princeville is the place to be if you want it all. It's a beautiful upscale development, stores close by, and a short drive down to St. Regis for cocktails and sunsets.
Lori P. from Del Mar, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 The condo was nice, clean and had some very nice things to make our stay more enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Cheshire, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2013 I had a great time at Alii Kai 3103. The unit looks right over the ocean. We ate on the balcony looking out onto the water several times during our stay. The spacious unit was in a great location to the various beaches in the Hanalei Bay area. The one issue we had with the unit is some past guest must have left wet equipment in one of the rooms since there was a musty smell in the room. Fortunately we did not use the room. If we were to go back to Hawaii gain shortly I would definitely look to rent this unit once again.
A guest from Richland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in September, 2013 This is third time I have stayed at Alii Kai condos. This unit was the most luxurious of the three and had a wonderful view of the ocean. It also had the advantage of having three queen size beds which was perfect for our group.
A guest from Adams, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 First, I'd like to thank the management company for being so prompt, helpful and accommodating. This property is right on the cliff with a beautiful water view. It was very clean, and had all the necessities for a great relaxing vacation - toiletries, pots, plates, utensils, sunscreen, guide books, etc. The rate was as much as a hotel room, so it was a really good deal. I would only note that you cannot walk to any beach from this property, but my husband and I wanted to explore different beaches within the island anyway, so that was not an issue for us.
A guest from Chicago, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 We enjoyed the location, and for the most part appreciated the amenities offered. You couldn't beat the view! We were a bit disappointed with the cleanliness of the place - we had to wash all the dishes, pans, and cooking utensils before we could use them, which worked out okay - we washed a few things and stored them in a separate cupboard so that we could keep track of what we'd already cleaned. There was a smell coming from the closet of the second bedroom (I think it was coming from the tub of beach toys and snorkel gear - needless to say, we did not make use of those items.), making that bedroom unusable for us - fortunately, it was just two of us, so we could keep the door to that room shut. Overall, we had a nice stay here, but were really put out by the smell and the cleanliness of the kitchen. We did let the management company know about both issues, so I am hoping that they were able to address them once we left.
A guest from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Our stay at Alii Kai 3103 was unanimously satisfying for our party of five. Beds are comfortable, the master suite bathroom is luxurious and the view of the ocean from the property was amazing. The grounds/pool are well-maintained and we spent abundant time at the poolside. Close proximity to local shops and a grocery store is convenient, and the week we spent here went by quickly. Our only complaint is a minor one, in that we would have liked to have a better supply and quality of kitchen utensils and essentials.
A guest from Oceano, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2013 This place was wonderful. It was very comfortable and spacious for the three of us. It was so nice having 2 bathrooms especially since it was 3 girls staying in the condo. The balcony had the most amazing view! It was so nice to sit there in the mornings and have a cup of coffee. The sunsets were spectacular as well. They even had beach chairs and towels, etc for you to use. I would stay here again without hesitation.
A guest from Kewadin, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Stunning view from this older and partially updated condo. Good value and comfortable accommodation. Amenities including swimming pool were limited.
A guest from Thousand Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2013 Overall we were very pleased with the Condo and the location. The view was magnificent. It felt like there was no one else around but ourselves. For those guests who like to cook, however, I would suggest bringing your own knife kit. The knives in the kitchen barely cut.Everything else was fine: plenty of towels and beach amenities. Loved our stay there!
A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2013 Excellent. My wife and I were very pleased and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The best value on the island and we loved how quiet it was and the view. The view was remarkable.
A guest from Arroyo Grande, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 The Alii Kai resort, and our unit (3103), specifically, hover over the ocean and provide dramatic views. It doesn't get much better than whale watching from your own deck or bedroom window! The condo was clean, spacious and comfortable. We met another couple who weren't happy with the condition of their unit, but we were very satisfied with ours. I highly recommend this property. My only suggestion, a minor one, is to provide a starter amount of coffee and a larger frying fan.
A guest from Katy, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 The pictures were a bit deceiving. I thought the nicer bathroom was for master bedroom. The 2nd bathroom was kind of old and needed good bleaching. View was spectacular but area seemed a little dangerous.
A guest from Mendocino, California recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in February, 2013 Lovely location, good amenities, although the lights were out in bathroom shower and kitchen, and furniture covers were a little off-putting. We found a cockroach found dying in the living room, but at least it was dying.
Darlene L. from Ottawa, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2013 The location was fantastic! Every room had a view to the ocean and it was wonderful to hear the waves crashing the shore at night!Master bathroom gorgeous althought the rest of the unit was a little outdated. Beds were not soft but linens were plentiful and excellent quality. Unit was very well stocked.Area was very quiet! No roosters crowing at 4 am!
Bhavik P. from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 My family (5 adults) stayed at Alii Kai 3103 for a week in December 2012 and it was a fantastic memorable vacation.I had seen the views of the ocean as seen from this condo in pictures, but believe me you have to see it in person to see the real deal! Pictures do not do justice. As we first entered the condo, all our eyes were drawn to the lanai (balcony) in the living room and we all stood there for 5 minutes...speechless...just absorbing the view. The condo was sufficiently stocked and there were lots of beach towels, kitchen utensils, coffee, tea, etc. My mom loved making us all morning tea and breakfast that we would enjoy on the balcony. The two bedrooms had amazing ocean views and it was amazing to wake up to the sound of the waves. There are 4-5 beach chairs, umbrellas and lots of other beach toys to use. The master suite shower was a nice big shower which looked like it was recently renovated. The master suite has 2 queen beds and the other bedroom has another queen bed so that made it perfect for us as we were 5 adults. I could not find many 2 bed room condos in Princeville with 3 queen beds so that in my view, is definitely a plus point. Another thing I loved was the smooth check in and check out process. We had a code to the door before we even reached Kauai so we could check in at any time we wanted.Also, during our check out we were able to do a late check out as our flight was a late night flight. We just had to call the cleaning company and let them know. They were really nice about it and told us we can check out even at 7/8 pm.I would also recommend to go to the Costco for groceries if you plan to stay there for a week. Costco is probably the cheapest option on the island. Also there is a FoodLand in Princeville Center which is the closest grocery store near the condo.
A guest from Berkeley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 This was a tidy well stocked 2 bedroom rental set right on the cliffs of Princeville. We cooked most of our meals(try kapa'a Safeway, Kilauaea and other farmer's markets, note the health food options as well), which was a big $ saver allowing us to enjoy the times we did eat out. We slept to the sound of surf, enjoyed rainbows from brief sprinkles of morning rain, and moonlit nights from the balcony. Don't let the price fool you, Ali'i Kai is very nice if you would enjoy having a gorgeous setting and access to the glorious North Coast--Kilauea nature refuge, Hanalei Bay, numerous overlooks, beaches, and other natural wonders against a backdrop of Bali Hai. We never even used the pool, golf clubs, booster seat, or keys to the tennis courts. You can relax, explore, be as busy or chilled out as you choose. Dealing with staff, (booking/reservations, onsite maintenance) was straight forward and timely. Go for it!
Michael F. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2012 My wife and 1yr old son spent 10 days at Ali'i Kai 3103 and absolutely loved it! I gotta admit I was quite hesitant to rent from a texas-owned rental company where you hardly speak to a human being through the whole booking process. But everything worked out perfectly. While there, we walked around Princeville quite a bit and ascertained that Ali'i Kai is one of the best situated condos in that area. It seems to be one of the older complexes there, which is nice because the units aren't all piled on top of each other like they are at the newer ones. Only 8 units in the building we stayed in, so we hardly saw any neighbors, and once you walk inside, all you see is the ocean, and all you hear is the WAVES! The lack of air conditioning was actually a plus, because you really don't need it with the sea breeze, and why would you not want to soak up as much of that wonderful fresh air as possible while you're there! The place was super clean. There was new carpeting throughout.We found a booster seat that came in really handy for our baby. Stroller was non-functional. Pack-n-play was good. 2nd bathroom has a bath tub. We left a new beach umbrella there as the old one was rusted out. All appliances worked fine. We also found a manual pour-over coffee filter in the kitchen which we loved using instead of the auto drip. We were able to contact the cleaning lady who was very nice, and she helped us arrange for a late check-out since nobody else had the place booked that night. We had such a wonderful time here, thank you so much!
A guest from Anchorage, Alaska recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 My family enjoyed the stay. The views of the ocean made it feel as if we never had to leave the condo . Everything is within a quick driving distance, which made getting around easy. I would stay here again and look forward to future trips to Kauai.
A guest from Orthridge, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 This unit has a great view and was very central to many other locations. Unit was very clean and very comfortable.
A guest from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Our family of 4 stayed at Alii Kai 3103 for 7 nights in July 2012. I was looking for a comfortable quiet place to relax on the north side of the island with an expansive view from the lanai, and this condo delivered perfectly. The unit is on the first floor, but because it is on a cliff, the porch is elevated a bit and you have a nice view of the sea from the porch, living room and both bedrooms. The bedrooms are elevated even more, so you can leave the windows open and enjoy the view with privacy. Also the condos are designed with a curve to match the contours of the cliffs, which, for this unit results in extra privacy from the porch. Did I mention the view is great, and the unit feels private? We enjoyed sitting on the porch with morning coffee, and evening wine. Bring binoculars and you can spot sea turtles in the evenings. The sea breeze cools the condo nicely with the windows open, and the unit is comfortable, quiet and spacious. Beds and linens were excellent quality and very comfortable, the unit was spotless and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The condo has a full size washer dryer, and the newly remodeled master bath is beautiful! We stocked up a Costco and local farmer?s markets so we could save time, money, eat well, and enjoy a week in paradise. Be aware that the Master bedroom has 2 double beds and the beautiful bath. This was not a problem for us. Our kids stayed in the master, and we shared both bathrooms. We would love to return. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo.
Jane S. from Tacoma, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Overall a this was a decent rental for the price. The condo baths and kitchen areas were clean - except for the carpet in the baths (those need to be washed). The new tile is nice but the carpet is kind of dirty and stained in places as was the furniture. The screen door onto the lanai comes off its track every time you open it and the front door screen was ripped - both of these need fixing. The beds were very uncomfortable but at least you had the sound of the surf to help you fall asleep. Thankfully you are not spending most of your time at the condo. The view saved the day on this one - absolutely beautiful. The condo complex pool was very clean and usually empty - a nice way to end your day. Get rid of the gross carpet, fix the screens, get some comfy beds and you have got yourself a fabulous North shore rental.
A guest from norwalk, Connecticut recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 This place and view is amazing. The beds are big which made it ideal for 2 couples which is what we did. Just be aware that Princeville is at the north end of the island and many of the activities start at the opposite end of the island.
Glen A. from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 We really enjoyed our stay in Alii Kai 3103. There were a few problems but they were taken care of immediately when reported. The view was fantastic. We would stay there again and hope to be able to very soon.
A guest from Juno, AK does not recommend this property. Stayed for 15 days in March, 2012 I want to clarify that we have stayed at Ali'i Kai properties before with excellent results, this was the exception. All the furniture was uncomfortable, the unit reeked of mildew, not the least bit homey as most of the units are. Kitchen amenities were minimal...lots of towels tho' :). We were very disappointed in this particular unit after the great condos we have rented there in the past.
Andre W. from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2011 This was a great idea for us to stay here...Great location and great view of the ocean!The property was very clean & well kept...would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 We had a very nice stay. Gave a four star rating for general condition for the furniture, we had to put down extra sheets over the furniture, really needs to be steam cleaned.Had all the amenities, We like that there were chairs for the beach, an umbrella,and the cooler was a nice touch.Gave a four star for the property's location -- We really thought this was closer to the beach before we arrived . As our unit over looks the cliffs to the ocean with a view second to none.A rent a car is needed for beach time and to the local grocery store and restaurant's and more.Was the property clean, The outside common grounds were very nice.Again with the furniture a four star was given.The management company was very professional and aloud us to stay till 1;oo pm check out time.We enjoyed our stay and will be back with our family and friends.
Jennifer O. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 This is a great place! It isn't fancy, but it is clean, comfortable and really great. The master bath is fabulous! I loved the location, and the view. From the lanai, we could see the sunset every night. There was plenty of towels and linens, so if you wanted to change them on a regular basis, you could. It was very quiet and I felt very safe, even with the windows open for the night.
Paul B. from Woodside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 In general a very nice unit and both well located, and appointed. We enjoyed being able to sit on the veranda and watch waves, boats and birds. Unfortunately neither the dishwasher nor the food disposal were working so that created a little extra work for us. Overall, though, very nice.
Tanya V. from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 This condo is in a beautiful location - overlooking the Pacific ocean. All that you can see from the living room is sea. The condo is nicely appointed with tile floors and a recently renovated master bed and bath. All in all this was a beautiful and relaxing location close to many attractions on the north shore of Kauai.
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2011 Although the condo itself was beautiful and the location was stellar, I felt like the owners were stingy with their supplies. The fridge was COMPLETELY bare (we often leave condiments behind in the hopes that the next can use them). There was only salt and pepper. Most upsetting was the complete lack of blender --- no mixed drinks! Oddly, however, there were far more toys and supplies than promised. A blender, some better pots & pans, and a few basic food items would make this an outstanding condo.
A guest from Katy, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 Upon arrival there was a message that the washing machine could not be used. later we learned that this was a know problem and they were waiting on a part from Honolulu. They should have informed us. When we tried the dishwasser there was no water supply. maybe related to the problem with the washing machine. I also phoned Saturday to talk with the hose keeper (I realise it was weekend) but was only contacted Monday (just before we left) She was very helpful at that time. Some of the material was not feeling clean.Price quality is still acceptable but prior information is a must.
A guest from Monroe, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in April, 2011 Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful location and condo was very clean. It could use a minor facelift with some paint and repairs to screens but all in all, a great condo.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2011 Overall we enjoyed staying in this condo with our two small children. It was five minutes walk to the pool and five minutes drive to a playground. There was a supply of sand toys, snorkel gear, beach mats/towels, and a beach umbrella, as well as a pack-n-play and stroller, all of which we used. The beds were all very comfortable. The master bath has been updated and is gorgeous. The kitchen is well equipped, but many of the small appliances are either old or on the cheap end. For example, there is a blender and we tried to make smoothies and pina coladas, neither of which turned out well. The cleaning crew did a good job on floors, surfaces, kitchen, bathrooms, etc; however, although we never saw anything but ants (despite our clean up efforts) we noticed that there were signs of pests on the walls and baseboards so it really needs a more thorough cleaning.
A guest from Sherman Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 We stayed 3 nights of our honeymoon here and loved it so much that we regret not booking it for our entire stay. We definitely recommend. Great location, amenities and view. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
A guest from Warren, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2011 We loved watching whales and seeing rainbows from the lanai. The sound of the ocean was soothing. It was like the view from a cruise ship. Sunsets and sunrises were great. It was pleasant for walking.It was an easy drive for food and beaches.Bedrooms were roomy and had great views. The house geckos were entertaining. We even heard one chirp and watched another hunt down and eat a moth.We felt safe up so high the night of the tsunami alert.We would recommend this place to others.
Jim G. from Orange, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2010 We had a fabulous time staying at our oceanfront condo in the the Alii kai. The condo was in tip top condition with ocean front rooms in the living room and 2 bedrooms. You can hear the surf as you go to sleep! Imagine waking up to incredible views of the ocean! The condo was in immaculate condition and extremely clean. We enjoyed buying fresh fish at Honolei and cooking at the condo for 3 of our 5 nights. The master bathroom had a great walk-in shower which my husband and i enjoyed! We can't wait to go back!
Lanette D. from Blue Ridge, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2010 Wonderful experience! Clean, great view, perfect setting, great price. Will definitely be staying there again and recommend it to everyone.
Kelie P. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010 Great view..but not too great with the accomodations and cleanliness. THe view is to die for, but the little annoyances became BIG annoyances. Such as the bee's that kept coming in the living room and the managagement didn't do anything after they were called. The bugs are horrible, because they don't have the door sealed and you cannot leave the glass door open after the evening, which is sad....because the ocean is so beautiful. The ants..well..don't leave one crumb of food and don't rely on management to do anything, because they won't. Showers were nasty dirty and it smelled. But the view took care of it somewhat...
Property Manager Response: Response from Ahh Aloha Kauai Vacation Rentals Pest control is the responsibility of the resident management at Alii Kai, it is NOT under the control of our rental management. And in fact, the resident manager did respond the same day and arranged to have the bees exterminated as soon as he was able to. We offered to relocate the guest, an offer which was declined. We also offered to send the housekeeper out immediately when the guest complained of a smell. It was due to brand new bamboo blinds, they have an odor until they've aired for a few days. Again, our offer to correct the problem was declined, the guest responded by email "Not now, we r vacationing, just letting u know." It is unfortunately that due to recent remodeleing, there were the issues with bugs coming in and the new blinds smelling. I wish the guest would have let us address the problems or relocate her so she would have had a more relaxing experience :-(
John A. from Lafayette, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2010 The location, view & layout are good. The bed configuration is bizarre. My wife & I would have liked to stay in the large master suite but that was the room with 2 beds, so our kids had the huge room & updated attached bath. A king sized bed in that room 7 2 twins in the 2nd bedroom would have made A LOT more sense. Also the kitchen was lacking small cooking utensils, not enough spoons, cheap pans, etc
Peter E. from Cerritos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2010 This is an older condo but well maintained. Its location is superb, right next to the ocean where you can see and hear the ocean in both bedrooms and living room. During our stay, we saw migrating whales and rainbows. Since the island is small, driving to other scenic places is not too time consuming.
