Excellent View & Private feel despite crowded Poipu area
"The best thing about this unit is the ground level ocean view lanai where you can sit out in a mostly shaded area and enjoy the ocean and scenery. Most of the time it was very private and quiet because it is an end unit, but for a few days some really rowdy people were around. That's just the luck of the draw. A heritage trail goes east and you can walk for miles on a sea cliff trail right from the unit. The ocean was a bit too rough to snorkel right out in front while we were there. DO NOT depend on the stuff in the closet for your adventures. Maybe someone will leave something and you'll get lucky but the boogie board, snorkel stuff and cooler were all malfunctioning. We didn't try the chairs.We often walked to the beaches nearby. But there is plenty of parking at the beaches if you want to drive. This is a great unit, but there are several little things that need to be fixed so if you are OCD stay somewhere else. I was looking forward to an espresso machine and after a thorough search never found one. I think the unit itself could use less clunky furniture or could be re-arranged with a bit more flow. But the ocean views make up for most everything. The pool is super tiny but the water in it was nice. We came for the ocean not the pool! There is no air-conditioning, so if you are one of those people who need total luxury you might want to stay in a hotel instead of a condo. I have a king bed at home and this one was really a lot smaller, so maybe a pygmy king? I'm not going to mention bugs because it is a tropical place and if you want a bug free environment you'll have to go somewhere hermetically sealed. We absolutely loved the geckos and lizards. There were none inside the unit, but they are around the condo and my son was crazy for them. Right down at Brenneckes beach we snorkeled with about 15 sea turtles. Federal law says no touching or getting too close, but there are so many and they are friendly you feel as if you are one. We saw dolphins one morning and also a monk seal on Poipu beach. I looked at some of the other condos around and in comparison was happy I chose this one."

"Stayed here for 9 days while my husband attended a conference at the Grand Hyatt Kauai. The location was superb, the condo was in good shape, and the size allowed us to have our son & daughter-in-law join us for the trip. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely rent this property again for a trip to the Poipu Beach area of Kauai."

"This is a clean vacation home close to the beach. We were here with another family, so there was a total of 9 people. The two upstair rooms where great for the parents, while the lower level worked out for the kids. We loved how the kids could run over to the beach or go get a shave ice without us watching their every step. I loved the upper deck in the morning while I drank my coffee, read my book and listened to the ocean. The owner was friendly and easy to contact. I am hoping to go back some day soon!"

"My husband and I had the most wonderful time at Kiahuna Plantation unit 239. The condo came with everything anyone could want, including boogie boards, sand chairs and different size coolers. The setting on the 2nd floor allowed the trade winds to enter the condo and sitting on the balcony was just super relaxing. The owner was easy to work with and helped make our stay in southern Kauai most delightful. An awesome vacation."
