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!

Great place, would stay here again!!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is nicely situated on a stunning property. This particular place provides a nice combination of quiet, charm, and an awesome lanai (which is ESSENTIAL in Kauai). This was our second time at Kiahuna Plantation and our first time staying in this unit. It's owners, Jack and Susan, are excellent hosts and provided nice insight into the island. Kauai itself it's always gem.

Book this place before someone else does!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and so glad you enjoyed our condo...... We also love the lanai, and the view of the ocean, sunrise or sunset, is what an island vacation is all about! We hope you will come back someday soon.

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.

Wonderful unit, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Great trip! If I were to recommend a location on Kauai to stay this would be it- that's taking into account we have turned this island inside out. Explored hours each day, north, west, Canyon, etc. this is a great location bc on the north side of the island you get a lot of traffic. Standstill, which is fine if you're passing through but not something I would like to deal with every day. This location is close to many restaurants, shops, beautiful beaches, and the traffic is not bad at all. I noticed some other resorts have lava rocks in place of sandy beaches which would be difficult to enjoy. Kiahuna Plantation has a great sandy beach and an expansive open lawn perfect for families playing ball or sun chairs.

Positives. This unit is completely stocked, down to the little things. Some things I was pleasantly surprised with: large ice chest, large sports thermos, snorkel gear, coffee mugs, wine glasses, wine opener, good pots and pans, even a ton of hangers for the closet. Beach towels are furnished daily at the check in beach counter.

The only negative would be the island chickens. They. Are. Everywhere. They start crowing at 5:30am and stop around 7pm. This was surprising the first day or two but we quickly got used to them and their sounds- just something to be aware of. The island of Kauai is Beautiful!!! Very lush with all shades of green you could imagine. There is no air conditioning (my husband was Very worried about this) but once the trade winds picked up it was perfect. Being on the top floor helped a ton!!

Some of our highlights & Tips- we Loved catching sunsets on Salt Pond Beach. Beautiful!!! Grocery store- we got everything at Big Save but I wish we would have swung by Wal Mart right by the airport for cheaper items. My husband loves seafood and ate Poke anywhere he could. A good change up to seafood was Tortilla Republic, right by this unit. I'm told happy hour was great but we missed it and had their regular dinner menu. Great salsa, brussel sprouts and drinks. We dinned at The Beach House, which was delicious. Another beautiful sunset and great food overall. We brought our Yetti cups with us to keep our beach drinks cold, which was perfect. The beach wasn't overly crowded. We worked out at the health club facility most days. The gym & pool are across the street, actually near the unit so that was convenient.

Overall this was a great unit, great location and a great stay in Kauai. Loved every minute!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay with us and so glad you had a great vacation! Every guest is very important to us, and we take lots of pride in having a great partial ocean view condo in this amazing resort. As you saw, our great lawn, gardens, and beachfront are unique,and totally unmatched by most resorts. Plus the fitness/pool/spa is recently, and beautifully, upgraded. A word about the roosters---they will gather around the buildings (where someone has fed them,usually) but our grounds staff has traps and the will capture and relocate them if anyone requests assistance. This really works---just a phone call to the front desk and they take them away. We hope you come back someday and we look forward to your return.We are in our 8th year of renting to very satisfied Kauai vacationers, and we're having great vacations there ourselves. Susan and Jack
