A new king sized mattress set and 2 new flat screen HD televisions were also installed in November 2013. The sofa bed has a queen mattress. You can reserve our queen Aerobed mattress for guests that use the sofa bed. This mattress provides a more consistent comfort for adults on the sofa bed.

These items are for your use.

“We didn’t want to leave! The furnishings are simple yet comfortable and the location was ideal. We loved the expansive level lawn outside our door where the kids could run and play.

About John Nabors

We live in Anchorage Alaska after 27 years in San Diego County and are almost retired. We have visited Kiahuna many times, the first in 1970! We travel to Kiahuna twice a year, many times with one or more of our children and grandchildren. We own Unit 88 in Building 16 in addition to Unit 230 in Building 35.

John is a member of the Outrigger Rental Committee and meets with that committee twice a year at Kiahuna Plantation and twice a year on the Mainland.

John and Winnie take great pride in their two little beach houses and maintain a quality that any of their family or friends would be proud to use. He has developed a marketing program to assure that each inquiry will have an excellent opportunity to find the vacation condo of their selection.

John Nabors purchased this condo in 2000

Why John Nabors chose Poipu

We chose Kiahuna over many other places that we stayed on the islands due to its spaciousness and privacy. The plantation style units are a much lower density than most resorts and provide for large outdoor areas. We love how close we are to the beach and we appreciate the lush landscaping everywhere around us.

We have visited Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai and Maui on many trips beginning in the 1970's and found that the most peaceful and enjoyable trips were to the Poipu area of Kauai. We loved the convenience and access to the large, level lawn from our ground floor unit. We have stayed in several locations in Kiahuna Plantation and selected the upper lawn area for our own beachhouse.

What makes this condo unique

Beachfront property

Low density Resort

Lush and mature landscaping

Ground floor on large lawn

Full resort amenities

Walk to shopping and restaurants

Perfect tropical vacation for families, couples, retirees & everyone else!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation at the Kiahuna Plantation! Everything was wonderful from the beautiful lush landscape, to the comfortable & equipped condo, the location in Poipu, the sunsets each night, the swimable beach in front & all the staff we came in contact with.

We couldn’t find anything wrong with it. We will definitely return!

This is a great property, comfortable, clean with beautifully landscaped grounds. Only con is the lack of soundproofing between floors, we had a family of elephants above us for most of the three weeks. since walking is difficult for my husband, he found the walk up from the beach difficult, therefor we will be looking for a unit much closer to the beach for our return next year.

Owner's Response: Aloha Deanne, We are sorry that you suffered through some rude guests upstairs. Hopefully, they did not stay as long as you did. The only want to guarantee not noise from upstairs is to rent a second floor. We understand that your husband has difficult walking to the beach. We will be happy to book you closer the the beach for your next trip.. We have ground floor and 2nd floor condos in the Ocean View category. Mahalo, John and Winnie Nabors

Stayed in unit #88 for 10 days in January 2017. Nice Condo in Great Complex in Poipu. Terrific Owner

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked out perfectly for our business/vacation trip to Kauai. It is located in a great area of Poipu with easy walking access to beautiful beaches, shopping and dining. The short walk across the street was a great warmup for a workout at PBAC every morning while my wife was at her conference at the nearby Hyatt. The facilities and pool at PBAC terrific as well as the friendly staff and atmosphere made it hard to return to my mainland health club. We found ourselves eating multiple times at the Olympic Café and Keoki’s across the street. You are also in the perfect spot to reach other parts of the island with a short drive. The condo was well maintained, very clean and fully equipped for our stay. The closet had many useful items however did lack beach chairs but they are available for free at the beach hut or an inexpensive rental at one of the nearby rental shops if you want to have a good seat at other beautiful Kauai beaches.

Some reviews of condos near the road at Kiahuna Planation mention the traffic noise however this was never an issue for us. If we happen to be at the condo when we weren’t sleeping we were out on the beautiful lanai anyways and the only noises I recall were the birds that hangout around the lawn area. There may have been minor noises from an occasional landscaper taking care of the grounds; but the resulting gorgeous plants, trees and lawns throughout the complex are worth the necessary minimal noise.

One of the best things about this condo is the owner John. We have rented several condos through VRBO owners and this one was by far the best experience in regards to the rental process. Everything from Reservation to Check-out was handled efficiently and to perfection. In fact we have recommended this owner to multiple friends and family members planning future trips to Kauai. And even during this trip our friends staying at the nearby resorts would visit us and were jealous of our less expensive accommodations.

Our theory when we travel to the islands is we are staying in a condo to have a place to take a shower, prepare an occasional meal and have a comfortable bed to sleep on until our next day of adventure or relaxation. So we look at the price, amenities, cleanliness, condition and location and Unit 88 met if not exceeded all our requirements.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sherie, Wow, what a review. We travel with a similar attitude and appreciate Kiahuna Plantation for its special, natural environment with bird sounds instead of AC sounds. We appreciate you mentioning our services to you and our Owner's Closet which is unique among the condos that we know about. Come back again. Mahalo, John and Winnie

Great stay at Kiahuna Plantation

We had a great time at your fabulous place in Poipu. Centrally located near great restaurants (Keiki's across the street and Beach House a mile down the road) all the activities, beach and the mountains. Your condo his very clean, comfortable and fully stocked. The staff at the resort are friendly and helpful and John (the property owner) was very responsive. We will definitely be back.

Amazing condo for family

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in Kiahuna Plantation with our 2 kids (ages 4 and 6). It's the perfect place as you can walk everywhere... quick walk to the beach and to the pool. In addition, with the beach hut, you don't have to worry about lugging towels and chairs down to the beach as you can pick them up down there. My kids love to play out on the grass outside of #88. We have stayed at several condos in this complex and #88 is by far our favorite. Plenty big enough for a couple with 2 kids. We have stayed in a 2-bedroom unit before and find that the 1-bedroom is just fine for all of us. We will be back again and again.
