Sejour innoubliable. Residence calme et sereine et les alentours sont remarquables: sortie en Kayak, Trecks (Lolo Vista Point, cascades ....) en foret, snorkling pour la plongee, ne pas rater la Beachhouse Beach: un veritable acquarium habite par 2 tortues .... Un seul regret: il faut rentrer ....a Toulouse, FRANCE.

Four and a half stars.

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was fantastic and the owner was very helpful with the booking.

The condo isn't brand new but has been upgraded and is VERY well maintained and although it is a ground floor unit at the entrance the lanai overlooking the garden is actually at second floor height so you have quite a bit of privacy.

Speaking of the garden it is the only thing that kept us from giving a 5 star rating (there is no 4.5 rating). Although the gardens are very nice no one seems to be maintaining them. Some of the paths through them have been allowed to grow in and the water features are not operating. It is still a nice place but it seems to be "unloved" and returning to it's original state.

Other than the garden everything is first rate. The beach is a 3 minute walk away and there are plenty of beach chairs. It's even closer to a wall that people sit on and watch the sun set over the ocean. There is a golf course within walking distance as well as shopping and restaurants.

The closet is full of beach gear including boogie boards and snorkel gear and the kitchen is well stocked if you decided to cook.

So if don't need to have everything shiny and new and are happy with a more comfortable but still clean and thoughtfully upgraded place that has a homey feel you can't go wrong with this rental.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay in unit 303 managed by Outrigger Hotels & Resorts. Regarding the Moir Cactus Garden I have informed our General Manager of your remarks. He gave me the following explanations "The information regarding the Garden is also useful. The garden poses a particular challenge with its age and the size of the cacti that thrive there. Richard Arruda is our new Grounds Manager and has been looking at ways to improve the area. I will share your email with him" Thank you for letting us know. Do not forget, you will be always welcome to Kiahuna Plantation, my home away from home Charles Pisciotta Owner Unit 303 Kiahuna Plantation

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a much needed vacation for my hubby and I and we couldn't have picked a better place than Poipu Beach and Kiahuna Plantation. Happy to be in HI again after many years (with Kauai being my first time). Charles condo was great. Quiet, clean and very comfortable. It was stocked with all the amenities you would ever need to feel at home with BBQ station very close by. Loved having the shopping center conveniently located across the street complete with market, restaurants, shops (and Starbucks!). The beach was just steps away with great resorts nearby. The grounds were maintained every day and were impeccable. Staff was very friendly and helpful too. Lastly, I cannot say enough about the Lanai… it was perfect. Favorite spot in the house. Very spacious and private and the garden was absolutely amazing! Loved seeing all the different colors of birds… The Plantation Garden Restaurant, Keoki’s Paradise (great live music) and Brenekes Beachfront Restaurant were a few of our fav’s… (cannot beat the ambiance!). Charles was great in answering all of our questions and always got back to us right away. The overall process was very easy and he made us feel welcomed and at home. We loved Kauai and Poipu Beach so much we plan on going back next year. Hopefully Unit#303 will be available : )

10 Days in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We had the most wonderful experience ever in Kaua'i. We were there for 10 days and brought over a party of 25 people for our wedding at the Beach House at Poipu Beach. We rented 6 individual condos for various periods at the Kiahuna Plantation and had a great time using the towel and chair amenities at the Beach as we all hung out together. We all went our separate ways at various times to do our own things but Kiahuna Plantation was a nice gathering place for us all to meet and share our experiences.
