We have a total of 18 condos that we can book you into. Our experience is that many vacation inquiries start with certain specifications and end up with a quite different set of requirements than originally thought. We have 30 years of experience with this resort and we travel to Kiahuna Plantation twice a year. We would like to help you find exactly what you want.

Our rates are the lowest available in each category. No deposit is required for our reservations and full payment is not due until your departure.

We have continued upgrading and redecorating our beach house to assure your comfort and style. We have a fully equipped, modern kitchen with new extended granite work/serving counters that are open to the dining and living space. We recently recovered the entire beach-house furnishings with bright, cheerful fabric. New carpeting in the living room was added in November 2013.

A new king sized mattress set and 2 new flat screen HD televisions were also installed in November 2013. The sofa bed has a queen mattress. You can reserve our queen Aerobed mattress for guests that use the sofa bed. This mattress provides a more consistent comfort for adults on the sofa bed.

The over-sized table will serve 4 to 6 people. The afternoon sun is just perfect on the lanai. Our condo also has an Owner’s Closet with items that we stock twice a year and with items left by other guests such as suntan lotion, soft drinks, water, packaged food, band aides, and other vacation items. These items are for your use.

Snorkel gear, drinks and snacks can be charged to your room. Huge swaying palm trees shade portions of the two+ acre lawn immediately adjacent to the famous Poipu Beach.

“We didn’t want to leave! The furnishings are simple yet comfortable and the location was ideal. We loved the expansive level lawn outside our door where the kids could run and play. The condo was quiet and we loved the sunshine beaming in each morning. The owners are gracious and provided lots of materials prior to our arrival that helped in planning our trip. We are travelers and have stayed in many places, but this is one of our favorites. Sherri, Seattle, Jan. 2012

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We live in San Diego County and are almost retired. We have visited Kiahuna many times, the first in 1970! We travel to Kiahuna twice a year, many times with one or more of our children and grandchildren. We own Unit 88 in Building 16 in addition to Unit 230 in Building 35. John is a member of the Outrigger Rental Committee and meets with that committee twice a year at Kiahuna Plantation and twice a year on the Mainland. John and Winnie take great pride in their two little beach houses and maintain a quality that any of their family or friends would be proud to use. He has developed a marketing program to assure that each inquiry will have an excellent opportunity to find the vacation condo of their selection.

Why Kiahuna Plantation:
We chose Kiahuna over many other places that we stayed on the islands due to its spaciousness and privacy. The plantation style units are a much lower density than most resorts and provide for large outdoor areas. We love how close we are to the beach and we appreciate the lush landscaping everywhere around us. We have visited Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai and Maui on many trips beginning in the 1970's and found that the most peaceful and enjoyable trips were to the Poipu area of Kauai. We loved the convenience and access to the large, level lawn from our ground floor unit. We have stayed in several locations in Kiahuna Plantation and selected the upper lawn area for our own beachhouse.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Beachfront property Mini-office furnishings Low density Resort Lush and mature landscaping Ground floor on large lawn Full resort amenities Walk to shopping and restaurants MORE COMMENTS FROM GUESTS: 'We loved the 'partial ocean view' from the dining room table -don't tell or we'll have to pay extra!

Tom & Judy and Suzanne & Joseph, Pasadena, CA May 2005 'We have been to Kiahuna many times, but this was the best -we loved your condo ... ' Brigid and Bob, Palo Alto, CA, July 2000 'It was very quiet and relaxing. The services & supplies were nice to have available. We enjoyed eating out on the patio as much as any of the restaurants.' Sandra and Louise, Vancouver, BC March 2008. 'Our room was so welcoming and thank you for giving it that home feeling such as the fun closet, your family pictures .... ' Rob, Jennie, Logan & Colton. September 2008 'Beautiful place, the perfect spot for our honeymoon.' Molly & Dillon, Seattle, WA August 2001 'The condo setup was excellent -everything you could possibly need and well located to stores and restaurants.'
