Kiahuna Plantation is a low density beach front Condo Resort, the only one on sunny Poipu Beach. Contact owner for best price at 562-691-3643. FREE Wi-FI & Internet connection. The use of the pool, tennis and the Fitness Center at the POIPU BEACH ATHLETIC CLUB are also FREE for our guests. If you book with or through OUTRIGGER, you probably won't have FREE ACCESS to the new POIPU BEACH ATHLETIC CLUB.
New Legislation. Starting July 1, 2012, a new law HB 2078 regarding rental properties has been in effect. This law requires out of-state owners, like us, to post our local agent, Roy Thompson, 808-742-2200, and our Hawaiian Transient Accommodations Registration No. W40955782-01.
Volker & Regina Bauerle, the owners of the 2-BR, 2-BA Condo, will handle all the booking by phone 562-691-3643. A superior Management Company with an office at the Kiahuna Plantation manages our unit.
Nestled within 35 acres of lush lawns and tropical gardens are plantation style buildings, no higher than a palm tree. Our unit is open and airy due to large sliding doors and windows with louvers that open to catch the cooling Hawaiian trade winds.
The master bedroom on the first floor features a King Bed, 2 night stands, a separate dressing room and full bath with tub. The master bath has been completely renovated. A dresser - with a TV on top - and 2 large closets are provided for your clothes including a safe for valuables. A 6' sliding door leads to your private lanai with 2 lounges and a chair & table where you can relax with a good book and listen to the birds sing. New Island Shutters have been installed in the master bedroom for your privacy.
Our 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds, a night stand, a large dresser and a closet. The guest bathroom, which has been totally renovated is off the hall featuring a large enclosed shower, with a sink inside a cabinet with a granite top.
On the 2nd. floor, the living/dining room (great room) is spacious (20' x 24'). The full-service kitchen was recently updated with new cabinets, a stove, microwave dishwasher and refrigerator. Even a small oven is provided for warming up bread, or making toast. An electric coffee machine, mixer to make your tropical drinks & smoothies, and all the dishes, pots and utensils you need are provided. Next to the kitchen is the dining area with a glass top table and 6 chairs.
Two people can sleep on the pull-out couch in the living room, which has been re-upholstered. A 42” LCD TV sits on top of a dresser with FREE cable provided, including FREE Internet service for your computer. The drapes in the great room have been replaced recently with off-white Island Shutters.
Your private balcony is right outside the living room, where you can - if you like - eat most of your meals, like we do, to save money. We usually shop at Costco in Lihue. They have a large variety of fish, sushi & sashimi, appetizers, and ready-made meals, including wines & spirits available. The Lihue Costco features more products than our local Costco in California. There is ample room for 6 people to eat, using the round table & chairs on the balcony. In addition, you can also relax on a lounging chair and sip your favorite drink while watching the colorful birds in the huge, 100-year-old monkey-pod tree facing the balcony. We especially like the red-crested cardinals. They'll eat right out of your hands.
Recently, the entry and the kitchen tiles have been replaced with 16'x16' tiles, installed in a diamond pattern.
A new barbeque below our property will help you get quick, cost-efficient meals on your table. Even a hamburger or hot dog tastes better from the BBQ at the Kiahuna Plantation than at home.
However, if you prefer eating out and you don't want to drive, here are some of your choices: The Plantation Gardens Restaurant is right around the corner from our building. Across the street at the Kiahuna Shopping Center are several places to eat. A favorite with guests is Keoki's Paradise with open air dining. Across from Keoki's, a new restaurant -- THE OLYMIC CAFE – has opened in February 2016. They occupy the spot where Roy's Poipu Bar & Grill was located. Roy's moved to the new Kukui'ula Center, 1 mile west from our condo. The new restaurant is named EATING HOUSE 1849. Or you can eat at The Bangkok Happy Bowl, located on the NE corner of the Poipu Shopping Village. Next to them is a stand, where you can eat a Puka Dog with a choice of unusual toppings.
One of the newest additions for fine dining is a mile west of our complex at the Kukui'ula Village in Koloa. Merriman's is good, but pricy. Our favorite for special occasions is Josselin's Bar & Grill, right across from Merriman's. Jean Marie Josselin used to be the owner/chef of A Pacific Cafe in Kapaa, possibly the best restaurant in Hawaii. Unfortunately, it closed a few years ago. We were pleasantly surprised when our favorite chef opened his new restaurant in 2010. You got to try the Lychee Sangria. It is out of this world, made with white wine (not red like your typical sangria) plus secret ingredients. One of the staff members gave us the recipe for this killer drink. We now serve it at our home to special guests. Everybody raves about it.
If you like Mexican food, the Kukui'ula Village recently opened a restaurant, the Tortilla Republic Grill & Margarita Bar, that takes care of your cravings. Our grandson and fiancée told us that the food and atmosphere is better than at Mexican restaurants in California.
Around the Kiahuna Plantation property you find a multitude of beautiful blossoms and colorful foliage. Take in the aromas of sweet plumerias, orchids and hibiscus. Watch the palms gracefully swaying in the breeze, and find flowers, trees and shrubs you may have never seen before.
The Moir Cactus Garden is another spectacular attraction on the resort grounds, created almost 80 years ago. You'll discover that this Condo Resort is so much more relaxing than similar places on Oahu and Maui with their hustle and bustle.
A short walk from our condo will lead you to the best swimming beach on Kauai. Feel the warm white sand sift through your toes as the Hawaiian sun embraces you. Gaze at the brilliant blue waters of Poipu Beach and watch as the sunrays dance on the waves. You can go surfing, boogie-boarding, snorkeling, sunbathing, or reading a good book under a palm tree in the vast lawn facing the ocean. Free towels and beach chairs are provided at the Beach Hut for our guests. Surf-and boogie boards are available for rental. Surf lessons are also available.
The famous Poipu Bay Golf Course, former site of the annual Grand Slam tournament, is 2 miles east, next to the Hyatt Poipu Hotel. The Kiahuna Golf Course is just north of our property. Other great golf courses are nearby. As one of our guests we'll reveal the name and location of a little-known golf course where you can play for less than $30. If you're interested, just ask us.
Many other fun things, like horseback riding, scuba diving, windsurfing, etc. are available close-by. If you like hiking, we can help you find the perfect trails. You can reach the Waimea Canyon in about one hour by car. Mark Twain called it 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.'
As you can see, there is simply no shortage of things to do, including helicopter rides around this amazing island. Make your plans today and we'll help you have the greatest vacation of your lifetime.
