About Jack and Susan Marshall

We are a retired couple living near San Francisco. We had been looking for the perfect place with a real island feel, and found Kauai to be more tropical and picturesque than Maui or Oahu. When we saw this condominium with a partial ocean view had come on the market, we bought it right away. We vacation here ourselves, several times per year, and take pride in keeping it attractive and comfortable. We are now seeing returning visitors, so we know we're providing a desirable vacation experience.

Why Jack and Susan Marshall chose Poipu

For your special vacation, a partial ocean view is a considerable plus!

Perfect location & condo for our 3-member family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The photo capturing the ocean in the distance from the lanai does not do justice to the view. The ocean & beach are much closer than the photo sells. The room we stayed in is located in building 40 of the Kiahuna Plantation Resort. Although the building appears to be the farthest from the beach of all the buildings in the resort, it's still an incredibly short distance. Especially considering that we had access to all parking spaces within the resort that were closer to the beach.

The location of this condo to the community bbq's were also ideal, as we are a family that likes to cook a little while on vacation (those of you with toddlers can appreciate how much easier it is to "dine-in"!). The condo itself was very clean and either very well-maintained, well-built, or both. There is no A/C but it's not needed, due to the incredible cross-breezes that flow freely through the windows. The King bed was large enough to comfortably sleep me, my wife and our 4 y.o. daughter. The lanai is huge & equipped with a table & 4 chairs and also two chaise lounges. There was a beach umbrella, snorkel gear, boogie boards and an easily portable cooler in the closet for our use. This is the perfect place to stay if you and your family plan on spending most of your days at the beach.

Finally, there is a great little shopping center just across the street from the resort that has everything from great dining to retail shops to Starbucks. Also, you are only a 5 minute drive from the small town of Koloa, where you can get all your grocery items and do some shopping.

Thank you Jack and Susan!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and your 5 star review! Guests seem to like our view most of all, along with a lanai that overlooks that ocean. We purchased this condo precisely for that view and the ideal location within the Kiahuna Resort—-within walking distance to everything, but not sandwiched between buildings. Plus—-parking and a barbecue area right below the condo. Hope you come back for another visit soo! The Marshalls

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review! Our staff makes sure everything is clean, and the beautiful grounds ( Moir Garden, great lawn area, lagoon picnic area) are unique to this amazing resort. It’s almost like a tropical park. And we strive to be very quick responders to guests both before and during their stay. Hope to see you again!

Beautiful, comfortable home for enjoying Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Loved the ocean view & distant but distinct sound of the surf from the lanai. Home decor added to tropical feel. Plantation shutters let balmy breezes circulate throughout so always comfortable temperature. 5 minute walk to beach at Plantation & only another 5 minutes more to walk to great snorkeling at Poipu Beach. Location very private. Highly recommend. Only negative.....which owners have nothing to do with....those island roosters can sometimes be noisy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review....and thanks for booking with us! We always like hearing how much our guests love our partial ocean view....makes a big difference in how much the traveler enjoys staying with us as opposed to a garden view. Seeing blue water from the lanai , surfers, sailboats and the occasional whale enhances the whole vacation. As to the roosters—-they will sometimes congregate if someone has fed them....but our wonderful 24/7 manintenance staff can set traps and relocate them away from the building we mention in our confirmation letter. Wish we had known so we could have had those traps take care of the issue. Please come back some day! Aloha The Marshalls

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Being on the top floor and seeing the ocean from the deck was great! The bed and furnishings were comfortable and the unit had everything we needed. Enjoyed the condo and the beautiful Kiahuna Plantation grounds and beach very much. We’d definitely like to rent this unit again! Thank you Jack and Susan!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your 5 star review! All our guests over the years love our view.....the ocean and the palm trees seem to create a feeling of spaciousness and serenity. When we are there vacationing ourselves, we eat most of our meals on the lanai, watching for sailboats, whales and surfers. We look forward to your return visit! The Marshalls
