Kiahuna Plantation Spectacular Ocean View 2BR Unit

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

One of the most beautifully decorated/designed condominiums at the Kiahuna. Travertine tile, granite, and beautiful custom cabinetry throughout. Free wireless internet. Sonos Audio. Cable TV and DVDs in living room and bedrooms. [Unit 74 Building 14.]


Unobstructed ocean views from both floors. Short walk over a beautifully landscaped area to the beach. Unit set back just enough from the main grass courtyard for greater privacy, but close enough to be part of the fun and close to the water.

Includes unlimited use of the Poipu Beach Athletic Club pool, fitness, and tennis facility which is only steps away from the property.

The Kiahuna Plantation is a beautifully landscaped condominium complex that evokes the feel of an old Hawaiian Plantation. The units are open and airy with many windows, and louvers that open to catch the cooling Hawaiian trade winds. The Kiahuna is set directly on Poipu Beach, one of the best beaches on Kauai. Poipu Beach is on the drier south side of Kauai so it is usually quite sunny. (Kauai is so beautiful because of the abundant rain received in the North end of the island; hence the name the 'Garden Island.') A beach hut provides free towels and beach chairs; boogey boards and surf boards are available for rental. Surf lessons are also available.

The famous Poipu Bay golf course, former site of the annual Grand Slam tournament, is 2 miles East at the beautiful Grand Hyatt Resort. Other excellent courses are nearby. A number of excellent restaurants are close including Keoki's and the Plantation Gardens which are within walking distance. The new Kukui'ula Shopping Center and funky Old Town Koloa with their shops and restaurants are just a few minutes away by car. The rest of the island with its fantastic scenery, great adventures, and wonderful beaches is all within an hour's drive.

Beach chairs and towels are available no charge from the Beach Hut. The Hut rents masks, snorkels, fins, boogie boards, mats and coolers, and it sells beverages and snacks. Inside unit #74 there is a supply of beach equipment that we and renters have left behind. We do not specifically maintain this equipment because the Hawaiian climate tends to destroy beach material quite rapidly, but we do replace items when we visit. Usually there seems to be a good supply of usable masks, fins, Boogie Boards, and children's toys like pails and shovels. We cannot guarantee, however, that any specific beach supplies will be available in the unit.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Nov 28,

Dear David,

We had a great time at Kiahuna in unit 74. You have done a beautiful job in the renovation of it. I especially liked the kitchen with the long counter and open space. We are all readers, so appreciated the lighting as well. We were lucky with weather and the family did the Napali hike to the beach (2 miles) and the kids went on to the waterfall while my husband and I hiked back to the beach and waited for them.

The Perfect Condo in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just came home last week from our 7th vacation to Kauai. Each trip we've stayed in a different condo complex. This one was hands down our favorite!! We feel like it had everything and more. The view from the lanai was beautiful and the perfect spot to have a meal or just sit down and relax with a drink in the evenings. My kids enjoyed playing right out front on the grass and it was easy to watch them there from the lanai. We spent lots of time at the pool across the street and the beach. This is what makes this condo stand out from all of the others- the private beach! The interior of the condo was well equipped with everything that we needed as well. Beds were comfortable and bathroom and kitchen were both remodeled. The owners sent a nice gift basket with wine, and cheese and crackers which I thought was a very thoughtful gesture. Thank you for sharing your second home with us. We will definitely be back within a year or two!!

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Kauai was magical! We found the condo to be spacious, clean and well equipped. This condo is ideally located with spectacular ocean and lawn views compliments of sitting at the top of a small rise. The short walk to parking, the pool complex (across the road) and local shopping is a great way to enjoy the flowers and birds. The layout of the condo places the two bedrooms, baths and laundry downstairs with the living, dining and kitchen upstairs. This makes it easy to load up to head to the beach and keeps the bedroooms cooler for napping. We loved our visit and have already booked again. Thank you for hosting us we will see you next year!

Beautiful condo in a lovely resort

  • 5 of 5

Kiahuna #74 was a fantastic choice for our family of four with two young kids (ages 4 and 6). The unit is pretty with a nice big entertaining / relaxing area upstairs with a lovely view of the ocean and the two bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. The lawns allowed the kids to run around a bit and still be in our sight. We walked along the beach and had a look at some of the other options along the way (Sheraton, Marriott, etc) and the Kiahuna was much more to our style, with far less density of people on the beach, around the pool, and just on the grounds generally. It felt relatively quiet and our unit felt private, which we loved!

The condo was very comfortable with a good array of beach gear already stocked, which was a nice addition. Our kids also loved the selection of coloring books, kids toys, and games.

We went to the pool every afternoon to swim and enjoy the poolside happy hour service. It is a little walk across the road, but that wasn’t a problem for us.

The only slight negative is not about the condo itself, just had to do with the beach and our group. The beach slopes quite steeply and the waves were often quite high, so we didn’t spend much time there. A short walk or drive was all it took, however, to get to beaches with gentler surf (Baby Beach or Po’ipu Beach).

I’m already dreaming of when we can return and this unit is exactly where I want to stay!
