Kiahuna plantation is a low density bungalow style resort located on 35 acres of tropical paradise. It is a lovely resort with one of the highest revisit rates on the island and is located right on one of the best swimming beaches in Poipu. Our unit is one of the only few in the development to be so close to the sand.
Our unit 10 is located on the ground level of a two story building, ocean front in building 3. The condo has been recently renovated by one of the islands premier interior decorators. From the kitchen and living room it looks directly out over the ocean where you can enjoy the gorgeous views. Our unit has a fully-equipped fully open kitchen, king-size bedroom, queen sofa pullout bed, allowing for up to 4 people total occupancy, as well as many owner-supplied extras. Children are certainly welcome at Kiahuna and our unit is one of the best for kids as it opens up right on to the expansive lawn where they can play. We take great pride in our unit and keep it constantly updated. Recent improvements include a newly upholstered sofa and chairs, plantation shutters, new appliances, new bath tile, and new lanai furniture. We also offer a stackable washer and dryer for your convenience, which is a feature you will not find in some of the other units as Kiahuna. Please note that there is no central air conditioning in the units at Kiahuna but our unit is situated to take full advantage of the trade winds to cool the air naturally. Ceiling fans are available in the unit.

Why Brooke Richardson chose Poipu
Our unit is one of the only few in the development to be so close to the sand. We were drawn to the ground floor unit as we feel there is seamless access to the ocean and wonderful lawn area. Swimming or Tennis? Enjoy complimentary use of the exclusive Poipu Beach Athletic Club directly across Poipu Road for swimming and tennis. We are happy to announce that our club re-opened. It has been improved from the previous operators and will continue to be improved with a fitness club to be added as soon as possible. Note-not all units at Kiahuna has access to club. We are members so you will have complimentary access during your stay.

Best vacation ever.
The location of this condo is perfect, it is literally stepped from the sandy beach, and between the sandy beach and the lani is best lawn you have ever walked on in bare feet.
The condo itself is perfect, super clean with updated appliances. Great walk in shower with adjustable message shower head.
Unlike most units this one has a washer/dryer, so you don’t need to bring so many clothes.
Great bedroom with very comfortable king size bed.
The living room has a very nice couch ( hideabed ) and lounge chairs, all with new upholstery. Dinning area has a very table that seats four, that you have a view of the ocean from. We spent most nights dining on the lani.
Kitchen is fully stocked with very nice cookware, we usually eat out, but with such a perfect location, with gas BBQ located right off the lani, we made dinner every night, and watched the sunset.
I cannot say enough great things about this condo, it is truly a gem, look forward to renting this unit next year. Thank you so much for making this a dream vacation.
The best condo at Kiahuna!
This is probably one of the best condos at Kiahuna Plantation. For one, it has a washer and dryer, which many of these units do not have. Second, the grassy area with the BBQ out the back door is very convenient. Also, the bed is very comfy. This unit is so close to the ocean, you can hear the waves all night long. I could go on and on about this unit, but I don't have the time. I stayed here for a week and could've stayed for much longer. We had friends and family staying in other units, so I was able to compare. This one is nicer and is worth the cost.
The only complaint that I have is the security here is pretty nosey. We had our wedding on the island at a different location and somehow they knew about it and were waiting for us at our backdoor as soon as we got home from our wedding reception! They said they had received a noise complaint, but we had literally just walked through the front door and they were there. So that was pretty weird.
This is really oceanfront with sunset views from the lanai. The property is very well equipped. The kitchen has everything that you need to make cocktails and meals. The bedroom is separated with bi-fold doors from the rest of the condo. I don't recommend that more than 2 people stay - there just isn't room. We have stayed in a lot of condos in Poipu but none compare to this unit.
All the comforts of home, just steps from the ocean....Drift off to sleep listening to the sound of waves rolling onto the beach.
A gem of a Property
This property is simply perfect, location, views whether you are a couple looking for a romantic setting of just as a getaway for the family. The unit is beautifully set up and offers unsurpassed views from the walkout. We stayed at the unit for 2 weeks without a car, and only used bikes and had a wonderful time. The resort itself is on the best beach in Kauai and you can walk to any number of eateries. It is a five plus star property.
Our favorite place to stay on the island
We think this is one of the best units in the Plantation.
In our unit is a guide book for guests to use…The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook which you can also buy for your use . You can get an interactive copy on ITunes Store. Also lots of tips are in our unit guest book. Here are some of our own VERY favorite things to do and hints to make your stay perfect: I have put things in bold which you may want to book ahead in busy months (when school is out). There is a Costco near airport..hit it on your way to condo..it is a 30 minute drive home from there. There is an o.k. grocery in Koloa (Big Save). On Monday there is a darling farmers make in Koloa at 12 ..hundreds line up before noon when the gate opens. Also a farmers's market 4 - 6 p.m. at Kukui'ula shopping center in Koloa. Good fish can be had at Koloa Fish market next to Big Save . Good take out lunches.
We eat at home mostly because of the view but when we go out here are our favorite restaurants:
Casablanca..at Kiahuna pool..can walk, outdoors, great happy hour. lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch
Joes on the Green - at Kiahuna golf course..nice for breakfast
Keoki's- great fish, good bar, and an early bird special..lots of Hawaii atmosphere and can walk
Tortilla Republic - casual good Mexican..eat downstairs..at Kukui'ula
Pomodoro - terrific Italian, reasonable, a bit of a drive to Kalaheo but pretty drive..make reservation.
Kalaheo steak house- a locals place - old fashioned with salad bar.
Brenneki's - can walk (15 minutes) - nice view overlooking Poipu beach park - good prime rib, bar, sashimi..casual
St. Regis Hotel overlooking Hanalei Bay (Big drive there) expensive but drinks won't kill you
Beach House - near by on Lawai Rd. Have not been for years but it is a spectacular spot at sunset. Pricey, upscale
Roy's - across the street..not our favorite..noisy, over priced and waiters are slick and pushy but some people love it
Kalaheo Coffee - great meals..very casual, deli atmosphere.
Kilohana - in Lihue in an old historic house - most genteel restaurant you will ever be in. Fine for lunch. Combine with Grove Farm tour.
There are several restaurants at Kukui'ula but I have not tried them. Most are expensive and are not on the water so I'd prefer to eat at home
If you really want to do a Luau try Smith's. Hyatt and Sheraton have one too.
For drinks in special places : no. 1 is on our lawn at sunset…it's one big cocktail party and great way to meet your neighbors
or Plantation Gardens,The Hyatt, Koa Kea (next door), Beachhouse. There is a Starbucks at Marriot's next door.
Swimming - Kiahuna has great swimming, boogie boarding and snorkeling. You can take surfing lessons directly in front of our unit. You can rent equipment and cokes at our beach hut..also they have free towels, beach chairs and can sell you activities/excursions/massages (BTW if you book directly with an excursion Co. you can get a discount). there might be boogie boards in our closet as well a a few floaties and a beach umbrella alhough things come and go so no guaranteee
Be sure to use the safe in your room, lock sliding doors at night. There have been thefts..they like computers, wallet and jewels.
Superb boogie boarding for strong swimmer Poipu Beach Park has great area..also it has a perfect shallow area for babies..and picnic spot. For superb snorkeling go to the beach on Lawai road (about two miles west in front of Beach House restaurant)..you can rent equipment there also.
For a special beach where we picnic but not swim try Maha'ulepu down the road. No facilities and no people and it is GORGEOUS
See our book or web sites. Terrific hikes on the island. The one we frequently take starts at the Hyatt down the road and goes south along the coast and golf course. Spectacular views.
We love golf on the island. Here we rank the courses:
Poipu Bay - pricey and worth it…beautiful course and spectacular views
Puakea - in Lihue..gorgeous mtn. views..reasoanable and challenging
Kauai Lagoons - beautiful in Lihue..two 18 hole courses
Wailua Muni - good value and along the ocean…one of the best muni's in the U.S.
Kukuiolono in Kalaheo, 9 holes..an old estate with beautiful views. VERY funky but what value..under $20 to play incl. cart. Be sure to buy at the 'pro shop' food for chickens on the course. Great fun for the whole family. They rent clubs too. Best teaching pro on the whole island..Pat Hunt..reasonable and superb teacher..call him…808 635- 2193 , 808 332 6452.
Kiahuna has a great tennis program. Sign up in the pro shop and they will line up games for you. This brought us to Kiahuna in the first place. You will meet the locals as well. Brig racquets
These are our favorites
ATV ride at Kipu Ranch..gorgeous and exciting..on a private ranch
Museum at Grove Farm - tour an original house from the 1800's and learn how the early white settlers fared
National Tropical Botanical Garden- 3 hour guided tour of garden..about 3 miles fro
