Kiahuna Plantation condo description

Unit 25 has certain attributes that make it especially desirable. It has recently been remodeled in such a way as to open up the unit to the white water views while keeping the unique Kiahuna style redwood trim throughout. It is on the second floor which not only affords a expansive lawn/ocean views but provides privacy, as well. It is an end unit with louvered windows allowing natural ventilation from the trade winds. An ancient rainbow tree shades the front deck which provides comfortable use throughout the day and keeps the unit cool. And we are one of the only units with a 'guest closet' which contains new bicycles, snorkeling equipment, boce ball and other entertainments for our guests.

We are one of the units that offers free membership in the newly formed Poipu Athletic Club featuring a swimming pool, tennis courts, and in the near future a fitness center. Not all units provide this membershiip.

The charm of Kiahuna Plantation is reminiscent of 'Old Hawaii' with beautiful grounds that are full of trees, flowers, an orchid 'farm' and green grass with pathways for strolling to the beach or around the property.
The recently upgraded kitchen and dining room/living room are lovely for meals, but nearby restaurants available for those who wish to eat out. Across the street from the Kiahuna is 'Keoki's Paradise'...good fish and meats and 'Roy's' fantastic cuisine. There are many more restaurants within a 10 minute drive that will satisfy all palates. For the ultimate in convenience 'The Plantation' restaurant is within walking distance of the condo and serves great food.
The water is aqua, warm and has (usually) gentle surf. There are surfing classes held for those who want to give it a try. Other activities include nearby scuba rentals, horseback riding, kayaking on two gorgeous rivers, and Zodiac rides to the normally inaccessible North Coast.
For those who have not visited Kauai, it's the ideal place for a week in Hawaii without the congestion and hustle of some of the other islands. The pace is slower, the beauty is unsurpassed, and there is always something to do within a short walk or drive of Kiahuna Plantation. Our family has owned this unit for over 30 years, and we look forward to visiting it and the island every year.
Bring your walking shoes (or at least your Tevas with a rugged sole) so you can hike around the 4,000' summit, or along the incomparable Na Pali Coast. If it looks familiar, it's because movies as famous as South Pacific and as new as Jurassic Park have been filmed along this gorgeous coastline.

Must see:

Barking Sands Beach (far eastern side of the island)
Kokee State Park (above Waimea Canyon)
Kipu Falls (N of Lihue)
Zodiac Trip on Na Pali Coast (departs from Pt. Allen)
Helicopter ride around island (bargain for best price)
Farmer's Market in Koloa Town (Mondays?)
Spouting Horn
Hanalei Bay
Hanalei Yoga
Cafe Coco (Kapaa Town, very cute)
The Queen's Baths (Princeville; ask where to park)
National Tropical Botanical Gardens (near Ha'ena)

The unit directly downstairs, #24 is also available for direct rental for clients who need more space for friends or family. Please see VBRO listing number 170571.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1975

                      About: Our family has been at Kiahuna longer than just about anyone else. My dad was the President of the Board of Directors of Phase I, Kiahuna back in the 80's and I have been on the board for three years. We consider the unit as a second home and try to afford our guests with the opportunities to do some of the things we like best like bike riding and snorkeling (new bikes and snorkel equipment available to guests at no extra charge), bocce ball on the lawn, Frisbee, etc. You will also find a French Easel in the closet upon which I have painted most of the paintings in the unit. My wife, Marijke and I, live on a small vineyard/winery on the Carmel River in Carmel Valley, California.

                      Why Kiahuna Plantation:
                      Our family has been visiting Hawaii since the 1960s. My parents looked for a place that reminded them of 'old Hawaii'; a place that was lush, slow-paced, and which offered instant access to the warm tropical waters. Kiahuna Plantation is that place. Low density, low buildings with traditional styling. It's decidedly un-touristy, while being being very convenient for tourists and owners. Our particular unit has a virtually uninterrupted view of the lawn and ocean and palm trees. We like the privacy of the second floor, and we enjoy the natural ventilation that occurs due to our 'end unit' location. One thing that we love about Kiahuna is that the property is immaculately maintained. The grass is groomed, the plants appear to be from a botanical garden, and yet it's low-key.
