Driving into Alii Lani you will probably notice how well maintained this complex is. The grass is always nicely trimmed, and dead leaves are nowhere to be seen. Even the cars are well parked, giving a clean and tidy feel before you even enter your unit. You may have heard about the strict association, but this does leave you with a very-well kept complex.



Alii Lani is comprised of a whopping 368 units. Plus two pools on either side of the complex. One pool is geared more towards children with a cute, artificial sand entrance, while the other pool is a designated a “Quiet Pool”, where you can relax and enjoy your favorite book while soaking up the sun. Each pool has a BBQ area with picnic table style seating. Grill your famous BBQ ribs and pull the family out of the pool when it’s time to eat.



Most units are 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with the occasional 3/2 sprinkled throughout. All are under 1,000sq ft and come with a full kitchen. The bottom floor units have an outdoor yard or patio that allows for you to own a barbecue in your backyard. Second floor units have a lanai large enough to fit an eating table with a couple of chairs, and they feature vaulted ceilings throughout the unit. There are a variety of different floor plans depending on which part of the development you get. Alii Lani was built in several stages giving different floor plans with each new stage.   


Monthly Maintenance

The Monthly Maintenance Fee here is fairly low, keeping your budget affordable. You can expect to pay between $365-$486 a month depending on the size of your unit. This fee includes water, sewer, exterior insurance, exterior pest control, maintenance of two parking stalls, 2 pools with BBQ areas and the beautiful landscaping (for more information on whats in a Monthly Maintenance Fee, check out this article). 


Rental Policy

There is a 30-day minimum rental policy here. Meaning you can only rent to one client in a 30-day time period. If you are looking for a condo to buy so you have a place to come and visit a few times a year and are sick of paying someone else’s mortgage, there are some possibilities for making the 30-day minimum work for you. You can rent out your unit for a flat monthly fee for 30 days and your renter can choose to stay there for 10 days or 30. You get your monthly requirement and your unit is available for the months that you want to come and visit this gorgeous island. Of course the other option is to do a long term rental, which is very desirable here as well.
