Kiahuna Plantation condo description

This unit has an in unit washer and dryer which is not common in most other units. It also has a top quality King Matress in the bedroom. Best location on the resort property.

Kiahuna plantation is a low density bungalow style resort located on 35 acres of tropical paradise. It is a lovely resort with one of the highest revisit rates on the island and is located right on one of the best swimming beaches in Poipu. Our unit is one of the only few in the development to be so close to the sand.

Our unit 10 is located on the ground level of a two story building, ocean front in building 3. The condo has been recently renovated by one of the islands premier interior decorators. From the kitchen and living room it looks directly out over the ocean where you can enjoy the gorgeous views. Our unit has a fully-equipped fully open kitchen, king-size bedroom, queen sofa pullout bed, allowing for up to 4 people total occupancy, as well as many owner-supplied extras. Children are certainly welcome at Kiahuna and our unit is one of the best for kids as it opens up right on to the expansive lawn where they can play. We take great pride in our unit and keep it constantly updated. Recent improvements include a newly upholstered sofa and chairs, plantation shutters, new appliances, new bath tile, and new lanai furniture. We also offer a stackable washer and dryer for your convenience, which is a feature you will not find in some of the other units as Kiahuna. Please note that there is no central air conditioning in the units at Kiahuna but our unit is situated to take full advantage of the trade winds to cool the air naturally. Ceiling fans are available in the unit.

Our guests have all the privileges available to any other Kiahuna guest, free wireless internet access, and 24 hour support staff through the onsite management company Castle Resorts. They are there to serve you with any problem that might arise.
Swimming or Tennis? Enjoy complimentary use of the exclusive Poipu Beach Athletic Club directly across Poipu Road for swimming and tennis. We are happy to announce that our club re-opened. It has been improved from the previous operators and will continue to be improved with a fitness club to be added as soon as possible. Note-not all units at Kiahuna are members. Our unit will provide you complementary access during your stay.
There is also a beach hut onsite where you can rent snorkel equipment and boogie boards and other beach necessities. Surfing lessons are offered several mornings a week on the beach in front of the unit. Beach chairs and towels provided free-of-charge at the beach hut.

There are quite a few gas barbeques located throughout the grounds for your use. This is an excellent place to meet and talk with other guests staying at the Kiahuna Plantation Resort. Lots of restaurants are within an easy stroll of the property.
Local Managment company Castle Resorts.

PLEASE NOTE-all buildings in Phase 1 at Kiahuna Plantation are scheduled to be repainted starting approximately August 17, 2015. The work will also include the removal of any dry rot damage that maybe found during the power washing/inspection period. The work will begin on building 1 and move on finishing up with the administration office. Rooms will be available to rent, but any perspective renters should be advised that there may be some noise impact. It is not possible to give an exact schedule by building-but a very rough estimate is 2 or 3 weeks per building, therefore work could continue into early December 2015. This work is weather dependent so the exact schedule is out of our control. Should you book a stay and be disrupted during you visit by this we will work with you on a fair and reasonable compensation based on the impact. It is difficult for us to predict the disruption that may occur at this time do to the unknown weather and inspection findings. We just want to be as upfront as possible with our guests about this. We are located in building 3

                          Location

                          Car: Necessary

                          In our unit is a guide book for guests to use…The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook which you can also buy for your use . You can get an interactive copy on ITunes Store. Also lots of tips are in our unit guest book. Here are some of our own VERY favorite things to do and hints to make your stay perfect: I have put things in bold which you may want to book ahead in busy months (when school is out). There is a Costco near airport..hit it on your way to condo..it is a 30 minute drive home from there. There is an o.k. grocery in Koloa (Big Save). On Monday there is a darling farmers make in Koloa at 12 ..hundreds line up before noon when the gate opens. Also a farmers's market 4 - 6 p.m. at Kukui'ula shopping center in Koloa. Good fish can be had at Koloa Fish market next to Big Save . Good take out lunches.

                          Restaurants

                          We eat at home mostly because of the view but when we go out here are our favorite restaurants:

                          Casablanca..at Kiahuna pool..can walk, outdoors, great happy hour. lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch

                          Joes on the Green - at Kiahuna golf course..nice for breakfast

                          Keoki's- great fish, good bar, and an early bird special..lots of Hawaii atmosphere and can walk

                          Tortilla Republic - casual good Mexican..eat downstairs..at Kukui'ula

                          Pomodoro - terrific Italian, reasonable, a bit of a drive to Kalaheo but pretty drive..make reservation.

                          Kalaheo steak house- a locals place - old fashioned with salad bar.

                          Brenneki's - can walk (15 minutes) - nice view overlooking Poipu beach park - good prime rib, bar, sashimi..casual

                          St. Regis Hotel overlooking Hanalei Bay (Big drive there) expensive but drinks won't kill you

                          Beach House - near by on Lawai Rd. Have not been for years but it is a spectacular spot at sunset. Pricey, upscale

                          Roy's - across the street..not our favorite..noisy, over priced and waiters are slick and pushy but some people love it

                          Kalaheo Coffee - great meals..very casual, deli atmosphere.

                          Kilohana - in Lihue in an old historic house - most genteel restaurant you will ever be in. Fine for lunch. Combine with Grove Farm tour.

                          There are several restaurants at Kukui'ula but I have not tried them. Most are expensive and are not on the water so I'd prefer to eat at home

                          If you really want to do a Luau try Smith's. Hyatt and Sheraton have one too.

                          For drinks in special places : no. 1 is on our lawn at sunset…it's one big cocktail party and great way to meet your neighbors

                          or Plantation Gardens,The Hyatt, Koa Kea (next door), Beachhouse. There is a Starbucks at Marriot's next door.

                          Kiahuna

                          Swimming - Kiahuna has great swimming, boogie boarding and snorkeling. You can take surfing lessons directly in front of our unit. You can rent equipment and cokes at our beach hut..also they have free towels, beach chairs and can sell you activities/excursions/massages (BTW if you book directly with an excursion Co. you can get a discount). three boogie boards are in our closet as well a a few floaties and a beach umbrella

                          Be sure to use the safe in your room, lock sliding doors at night. There have been thefts..they like computers, wallet and jewels.

                          Superb boogie boarding for strong swimmer Poipu Beach Park has great area..also it has a perfect shallow area for babies..and picnic spot. For superb snorkeling go to the beach on Lawai road (about two miles west in front of Beach House restaurant)..you can rent equipment there also.

                          For a special beach where we picnic but not swim try Maha'ulepu down the road. No facilities and no people and it is GORGEOUS

                          Hiking

                          See our book or web sites. Terrific hikes on the island. The one we frequently take starts at the Hyatt down the road and goes south along the coast and golf course. Spectacular views.

                          Golf

                          We love golf on the island. Here we rank the courses:

                          Poipu Bay - pricey and worth it…beautiful course and spectacular views

                          Puakea - in Lihue..gorgeous mtn. views..reasoanable and challenging

                          Kauai Lagoons - beautiful in Lihue..two 18 hole courses

                          Wailua Muni - good value and along the ocean…one of the best muni's in the U.S.

                          Kukuiolono in Kalaheo, 9 holes..an old estate with beautiful views. VERY funky but what value..under $20 to play incl. cart. Be sure to buy at the 'pro shop' food for chickens on the course. Great fun for the whole family. They rent clubs too. Best teaching pro on the whole island..Pat Hunt..reasonable and superb teacher..call him…808 635- 2193 , 808 332 6452.

                          Tennis

                          Kiahuna has a great tennis program. Sign up in the pro shop and they will line up games for you. This brought us to Kiahuna in the first place. You will meet the locals as well. Brig racquets

                          Excursions

                          These are our favorites

                          ATV ride at Kipu Ranch..gorgeous and exciting..on a private ranch

                          Museum at Grove Farm - tour an original house from the 1800's and learn how the early white settlers fared

                          National Tropical Botanical Garden- 3 hour guided tour of garden..about 3 miles from
