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!

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

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!

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

Bright and cheery property with an excellent view. Not that far from the beach and enjoyed the walk through the complex. Will definitely recommend this unit in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and for choosing our condo for your vacation. We’re very pleased that our excellent view rates a “fantastic”!!! We love this view, too, and it was the reason we chose this condo when searching for a beachy resort in Kauai. And like you, we love the stroll through the lush gardens on the way to the beach Hope to see you again!

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 location and property owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here with family and loved the location of this property. South shore is so less hectic than north part of the island and it is a great start and stop point for all that Kauai offers! We had the best view for the NYE fireworks at Poipu Beach. Susan is great to work with and keeps the property up very nicely. I am forewarning those that have 2 bathroom sinks as a MUST, this unit only has one! The roosters will also wake you up but that is part of the island charm! Road noise was a minimum and very nice to open the shutters to let the air flow through. The beach at Kiahuna is great as well. You should see lots of wildlife (sea turtles, native seal monks and lots of fish in the water) and the grounds have spectacular flora! I would recommend this unit for newlyweds or a mid age active couple as there are three flights of stairs to the unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your Five Star review!! We are glad you enjoyed our condo and its great partial ocean view! Our guests consistently tell us that the view is well worth the 2 flights of stairs. Very few one bedroom units at this Resort have 2 sinks. The loss of counter space makes that second sink more of a problem than a convenience. Glad you feel Poipu is the best spot on the island—-we do,too! Hope to see you again! Susan Marshall
