Located on the sunny south side of Kauai at Poipu Beach, this romantic setting is one of Hawaii's best. Beautiful golden beaches, gorgeous sunsets, swaying palms, and spectacular Kiahuna Plantation grounds make our condo an unbeatable location for your 'dream vacation'. Poipu is an ideal beach for swimming, snorkeling and surfing....rated the best on Kauai. The condo is conveniently located to both fine and casual restaurants, unique shopping spots, and excellent golf courses. This location is perfect for taking advantage of all the wonderful activities Kauai has to offer.
Our spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo comfortably sleeps up to six. The upper floor with kitchen, living room and lanai has beautiful views of the ocean, lagoon, and plantation gardens. We have recently remodeled the kitchen adding granite counter and new cabinets. The bedrooms are located on the first floor with an additional lanai off the master bedroom. You will be furnished with everything you need for a perfect visit including a washer/dryer, bedding, towels, and a fully equipped kitchen. Gas BBQ's are located close to the unit. With such a lovely location it is fun to fix some meals 'at home'! A beach hut is available for beach towels and chairs as well as snorkel and surf equipment rentals.
For families with young children, our condo has two porta cribs, a stroller and booster seats for the little ones. There is even a big supply of beach toys, a must for a fun day in the sand!
The entire Kiahuna Plantation offers a peaceful, quiet location to relax and enjoy your Hawaiian vacation. Our unit is managed by Castle Resorts, 2253 Poipu Road, Koloa, Kauai. The reception desk is open 24 hours per day for your check in and any other needs. We hope you will chose this wonderful Spot in Paradise for your 'home away from home' in Kauai.
My husband and I have been visiting Hawaii for years and have found Kauai to be our favorite island. When we decided to invest in our own condo, we wanted a place that was a family resort with a great beach and beautiful grounds. Kiahuna was our choice. We love it and hope you will too.

Kiahuna Plantation is truly a Hawaiian Paradise with beautiful grounds and located on Poipu Beach, the best in the island. As an old plantation, the resort is not high rise buildings, but beautiful single and double story buildings with individual condos surrounded by lush tropical gardens and beautiful ocean views. Our condo has no units above or below which makes it private and quiet. The condo is just steps from the beach. Our family has enjoyed staying here from the time our kids were babies. Now they are enjoying this condo with their own families.
Although there is no need to leave Kiahuna, it is centrally located to shopping, sight seeing, and golf. Our favorite activities are snorkling right in front of the resort and taking long walks along the beach to watch the whales, sea turtles, and monk seals. It is truly a wonderful vacation spot.
Janet, we are back home now and we had a wonderful wonderful time. All four of us totally enjoyed the condo. What a view!! We loved getting up in the morning early, having our coffee and watching the sun rise while sitting on the balcony. We took many pictures of the orchid garden that was in the front part of the place. The fish pond was pretty cool, and the frog would sing to us in morning when we were having our coffee. The condo itself was very nice and well stocked with anything and everything we needed. Thank you ever so much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy Kauai while staying in such an awesome place. We will recommend your place to all of our friends and we will let you know when we plan on going back.
This was our second family vacation staying at this condo. Our family of five had plenty of room. The condos are a little older, but this one has been updated. The whole plantation has huge trees and grassy areas throughout. The beach is just a short walk from the condo where you can learn to surf or just play on the waves. The beach area is perfect for boogie boarding and snorkeling. If you get tired of this beach you can walk down the way to many other beaches. All are perfect to play in. There are also two shopping areas a short distance away. One is within walking distance. There are outdoor BBQ's located all around the plantation. Two are very close to the condo. I could watch my husband and son play frisbee while they were cooking dinner. Janet, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had before my trip. Check in was a breeze! The condo was already stocked with boogie boards and some snorkel gear. It also had baby items if needed. Our favorite part was waking up to the wind and drinking coffee on the Lanai while watching the ocean waves. We love making our family memories in this great condo and on this beautiful island!
My family and I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving, with my parents and brother + his family staying in the same complex. It was an excellent "home base" for our Kauai vacation, with plenty of room for the four of us, plus a large kitchen/dining area where we could prepare and enjoy meals with the whole family. The kitchen was well-stocked, and there was a large dining table where we could all gather for family dinners. There was a gorgeous view from the upstairs lanai, and I loved watching the sunrise with my cup of coffee in the mornings.
There was much to do within walking distance including the beach, a luau, restaurants and shops, and a pool. It was a quick drive to beautiful hiking, ziplining, and Poipu Beach. The owner was very nice to work with. Cannot wait to return sometime!
This was our second visit to this fantastic Beach Bungalow! We really enjoy staying at the Kiahuna Plantation as we love being able to walk to the beach and the Plantation Gardens and to all the shopping and eating places directly across the street. The bungalow itself has lovely furnishings as well as the open air feeling with it's high ceilings. The balcony which overlooks the lagoon has a beautiful ocean view and is a great place to start your day with coffee in the morning and end your day with a cocktail in the evening. It is very convenient to have a closet filled with your beach needs, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. Not to mention a washer and dryer if needed. I'm sure for our next visit to Kauai, we would choose this bungalow to stay. The owners are so friendly and kind and they try to make sure your every need is taken care of. We are always very thankful to have had such a great vacation in their lovely bungalow.
Used our 25th Anniversary and two college graduations as the excuse to return to Kiahuna Plantation, where we spent a week of our honeymoon. (Also returned to the north side of the island at Hanalei Bay Resort and highly recommend trying to do both in the same trip, with at least four days for each.) Really is as wonderful a place as we remember it, even with our 20-something kids in tow this time. The two-story condo was perfect for us. The resort itself is marvelous and has been extremely well maintained. Made great use of the adjacent beach and the athletic club with pool directly across the street. We had an absolutely marvelous stay here.
Kiahuna Plantation is our favorite place to stay on Kauai and this condo is now our favorite unit! It sits between the lagoon and the Plantation House Restaurant garden. I wasn't sure I would like staying away from the main grass area where we've stayed before, but found we loved sitting on the lanai above the lagoon with a direct ocean view. The lanai table was pub height so the railing didn't interfere with the views. It's only a short walk to the main beach area and beach hut for towels and chairs.
The kitchen has recently been remodeled and the whole upstairs is open and airy, as well as extremely well equipped. We noticed most of the units have plantation shutters on the windows and sliding doors, which obstruct some of the view. We liked that 208 has sliding, vertical rattan shades that pull completely to the sides allowing lots of light and full views. The living and dining room furniture is comfortable and the TVs have good reception (tip - one of the weekly guide magazines has the TV schedule). In addition, the beds are comfortable, there's good closet space and hangers and the unit has a washer/dryer, so no need to pack more than a carry-on's worth of clothes.
Janet was very nice to work with and booking with her was a breeze. Check-in is at 3:00 or 4:00 PM, but our flight arrived at 9:30 AM, we picked up our care, stopped at Costco and the Big Save Market, just across the street, to stock up. We then hit the Saturday farmer's market at the community college, had lunch and arrived at Kiahuna around 2:00. Check-in was a breeze and the condo was ready and waiting.
Be sure to take advantage of the morning concierge orientation on the restaurant lanai early in your stay. Lots of good information on things to do and see. But I would recommend checking prices online or in the local advertising booklets for activities you're interested in before booking with the concierge. We later found we would have saved almost $50 a person on the Napali coast rafting trip we took had we booked through the company's website. And one of the booklets had a coupon for the irrigation ditch tubing for less than we paid at their website....do your homework!
We found that the units on either side are also rentals, so we're looking forward to planning a whole family trip sometime in the future!
Your Condo was simply perfect for all of our needs and beautifully remodeled. Looking out front from the kitchen onto the lovely Plantation Gardens, to gazing out back off the balcony onto the blue waters of the ocean, it truly felt like we were staying in the "Garden of Eden" on the waters edge. The plantation feel makes you think of Hawaii from years ago but with upgrades galore.
We will be returning to Kauaii and will choose your condo to stay in.
