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!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for your review! We appreciate hearing from our guests and knowing that our efforts to create a great vacation experience are noticed. The lanai, and our top floor location, is the reason we chose this condo. We think seeing the ocean is part of the reason many guests return to us year after year. Susan and Jack Marshall

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent vacation on Kauai. The unit is in a great location for us, we love Poipu and were owners at the Marriott for years. This unit is very close to that resort. The owners were great thru the process, they were in contact with us before and during the stay. The unit is nicely decorated and fit our needs. We loved that it was a top floor unit and has a nice view of the ocean. The unit was very quiet, we slept with the windows open and it was still quiet thru the night. No AC in the unit, but that wasn't a problem with the nice breeze flowing thru the unit. The only problem with the unit is the position of the toilet, not much room in the shower area. Not a big deal, just wanted to note the issue. This unit will be on our list for a return visit. An overall great relaxing vacation. I believe this is an overall great value for a vacation rental. Thanks to the owners for letting us stay in your unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review and for staying with us....and we’d love to have you return some day! So many of our guests are return visitors now that we’ve been renting for 9 years. As you note, the Kiahuna Resort has no need of (often noisy) AC units. We have quiet ceiling fans in living ,dining & bedroom areas, and cooling, soft ocean breezes that keep us comfy year round.The breeze is best from top floor condos—-which is why we chose our own location—-as well as that GREAT ocean view from the lanai. Looking forward to your return to 414! Susan and Jack Marshall

Great Condo with Awesome Lanai and Lovely View!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Kiahuna Plantation #414 for 6 nights in late October / early November 2017 for our honeymoon in Kauai. Even though we arrived later at night, the check-in process was smooth and the front desk staff was helpful with our questions about the property. The condo is great: close to parking, with a well-equipped kitchen, comfy king-size bed, things you need for the beach (cooler, chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear and some fun round floaties!), and best of all, outdoor lanai dining area and two chaise lounges. We loved the patio and the ocean view! This unit is walkable to both the pool and tennis courts across the road, and easily walkable to the beach. This property has a nice beach with a large lawn to lounge on, soft sand, and fun ocean waves.

We did the drive to Waimea Canyon (so beautiful!), sunset cruise with Holo Holo Charters (lots of fun!), Spouting Horn, Hanapepe and old Koloa towns, the Russian Fort, and many different beaches (but have to say we preferred the beaches on the North Shore during our stay there!).

Jack and Susan were very helpful with lots of information provided ahead of time. We would love to return to Kauai one day and would recommend this unit and Kiahuna Plantation!

South Shore Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Kiahuna Plantation condo was an ideal spot for our South Shore adventures in Kauai. We loved our lanai from morning coffee to star-gazing at night. The beach at Kiahuna was awesome for snorkeling and boogie boarding, and the condo was well stocked with beach activity equipment. The location was perfect for our hiking adventures along the cliffs and to Waimea Canyon. Bonus: Finding Puka Dog across the street was the best surprise!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. Our lanai is the reason we bought this condo---it is just so perfect for outdoor dining and ocean sightseeing. Hope you will come back and stay with us again!

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time on Kaui'i and we enjoyed our stay very much at the Kiahuna Plantation. The room itself had a small kitchen which was nice not to have to eat every meal out. There was also a closet full of beach supplies (umbrella, snorkeling gear, etc.) which was nice. Staying in the Poipu beach area was wonderful. Our room was not on the beach, but it was a short walk away. Overall we had a great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay with us, and your nice review. We fell in love with the Poipu Beach area 9 years ago, and still think it has the best weather on the island . And the Kiahuna Plantation , as a condominium resort, offers living room and kitchen space a hotel does not. As you mention, it's just a short stroll to the best beach. Glad you had a great vacation and hope you will come back for another island escape.
