Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I was a resident in Princeville from 1998 - 2006. I miss living there terribly. I hope to return permanently sometime soon. My 30 day stay was FABULOUS!!"

  • Beautiful Home

    "Our son, wife, and 3 young children stayed here for a week during our family reunion. We were surprised to see how updated and beautifully furnished this unit was compared to many of the others at the Kiahuna Plantation. Very spacious 2- story, 2 bedroom condo which easily accommodated their family. We've visited the Hawaii islands on many occasions and found the Kiahuna to be our favorite.....can't think of a better place to spend time, especially with children and this unit is truly a gem. This unit is a bargain for what you pay and what you get compared to others at Kiahuna. Aloha..."

  • Convenient location!

    "Great location, less than 15 minutes to the airport and convenient, equi-distant location in terms of other activities on the island. We didn't want to stay in Princeville because it would have been too far from Waimea Canyon, and we didn't want to stay in Poipu because it would have been too far from the North Shore...voila! Kailua Beach Resort. Room was a standard hotel room, clean, and had a fantastic view of the pool/palm trees/landscaping. Mini fridge came in handy. Beach is unswimmable (which we knew) and lots of little kids at the pool. If you are looking for a quiet resort experience and plan to stay on the grounds the whole time, then this would NOT be the place for you. However, if you just need a comfortable and convenient base camp (like we did), then it fits the bill perfectly. Resort had more amenities than I thought (gym, restaurants), but we didn't take advantage of them since we were always out doing other things. Actually, I take that back; we did have Happy Hour one day from 5-7pm at the lobby restaurant, Shutters. Quick drive to Walmart to pick up necessities (7 mins) as well as to Kapaa for awesome breakfast at Java Kai. Kapaa in general was such a cute town a little drive away - two favorite restaurants were Verde (fish tacos) and Hukilau Lanai (fresh, local, original food). All in all, this hotel room suited our needs well."
