About the property

Third floor treehouse location central in Kiahuna Plantation - 5 star reviews

Our Treehouse condo beckons you to visit near the treetop of the grand Monkey Pod tree at the Plantation House and Gardens. Our guest comments tell much of our Treehouse story about the condo and our service to our guests:

“..beautiful and well appointed..”

“..we hope to stay here again..”

“..Beach was a short walk away..”

“ was an awesome stay..”

“..the owner was quick to respond..”

“The condo has everything you need and is clean and really nicely decorated. It was quiet and relaxing, which was exactly the kind of vacation we were looking for.”

“..we will definitely be back..”

“..although close to the road, it was quiet and peaceful..”

“..our whole experience was enhanced from the cool Hawaiian breeze and tropical birds singing to us.”

“This rental is at a great location too. It's a short walk (5 minutes) to Poipu beach and an even shorter walk (3 minutes) to the Poipu Shopping Village. Stop your searching, you've found it :)

Our unit #230 is located on the third floor of Building 35. The location is quiet and private. We have all the features that you are seeking including a new king mattress, new HD TV and all the furnishing that you expect. Our condo also has an Owner’s Closet with items that we stock twice a year and with items left by other guests such as suntan lotion, soft drinks, water, packaged food, band aides, and other vacation items. The closet also contains extra beach chairs for a remote beach excursion and two boogie boards.

This condo has a pool, tennis, and fitness center membership for it guests.

We have two sets of good golf clubs available for our guests, if not already loaned out, just for the asking. Both are stored in our outside storage closet and we can arrange for your access and use.

Our Treehouse condo earned 5 star ratings from our guests. Can you do better than that? The condo contains a king bed – the plush mattress was purchased in late 2011. 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.

We provide free high-speed Internet service, modern voicemail, a CD player, a living room HD TV with a built-in DVD, and a TV in the bedroom. These are the features and the comfort that you expect in a resort. Wi-Fi service is included at no cost within the condo for a super signal. The bedroom is furnished with a dresser, two bedside tables, a large closet and a lockable safe.

We often arrange this condo as one of several close-by condos for family gatherings or weddings. Check our other VRBO listing # 342044 for our ground floor unit #88 in Building 16. Check with us even if our calendars show as not available. We can assist you in finding just the right vacation accommodation for yourself, your family and your friends at Kiahuna Plantation, even an ocean view condo. Our experience is that many vacation inquiries start with certain specifications and end up with a quite different set of requirements than originally thought. We have 30 years of experience with this resort and we travel to Kiahuna Plantation twice a year. We would like to help you find exactly what you want.

Our rates are the lowest available in each condo category. a one night's deposit required for our reservation and the full payment is not due until your departure. The cancellation policy is very liberal, too. These rates make our beach homes the ideal selection for your vacation in Paradise. We will quickly provide you with quotations for your selection of vacation condos.

Everything you want for the vacation that you are dreaming of is provided for you here! Just bring yourselves and enjoy! The beach is 4 to 5 minutes away through lush landscaped grounds. At the beachfront, we especially love to lounge on the large grassy lawn under the palm trees and watch the sun set or join the younger set on the spectacularly beautiful beach.

The Beach Hut at the beach front provides concierge services, lawn chairs, beach chairs, and fresh towels at no charge to you. Snorkel gear, drinks, snacks and visitor tours can be charged to your room. The great lawn has tall palm trees scattered on the grassy, beachfront lawn. This area is a great area to visit, read, watch children play lawn gains or the surfers and, of course the spectacular sunsets.

You are welcome to see the beach area for Kiahuna Plantation and the Kauai Sheraton at the Sheraton live webcam:

Review our 5 star reviews for our guest’s personal descriptions of our vacation condo. You can view a video of the condo to see how it is decorated and how you would enjoy all of the features. A video can be seen and another on the VRBO listing page. There are two barbeque grills right under the canopy of your Rain Tree (Monkey Pod Tree). That area is like a landscaped jungle surrounded by plumeria trees.

The entire Kiahuna Plantation is like a resort-wide flower show including a world class cactus garden planted by the wife of the original sugar plantation manager. The 1200+ orchid garden is a joy for a stroll around the origin plantation home that was originally occupied by the family of the manager of the first sugar plantation in Hawaii. Nearby, the pathways around the plantation home connect 5 Koy and water lily ponds.

We have stayed other places in Hawaii and our 5 year old grandson said, 'When are we going to the real Hawaii?' He meant Kiahuna Plantation.

Tell us what adventures you'd like to experience in Kauai and we will help you find it. Enjoy secluded beaches, zip-lining on a private plantation, kayaking, hiking, 'mud bugging', surfing, or a relaxing while surrounded by 35 acres of landscaped grounds. We have done it all and will help you find the activities that suit your vacation goals. Kiahuna Golf Course is just 2 blocks away. A fine restaurant is located in the old Plantation house within the resort. Other restaurants and shops are a short walk across the street from the resort.

New lanai furniture provides you with the opportunity for outside dining and lounging. The lanai table will easily serve your group for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The afternoon sun is just perfect on the lanai.

Outrigger’s 24-hour front desk and Concierge Desk provide the expected resort services. Outrigger has excellent security and a maintenance staff 24 hours a day to contribute to your trouble free vacation. The housekeeping staff is available upon request to give you privacy or comfort at your discretion.

USA Today has rated our beach one of the 10 best beaches in the world. Our Poipu Beach area has the best beaches and sunniest portion of Kauai. Our children claim that the fish on the west side of Poipu Point are as numerous as anywhere else we have been. They see turtles when they are snorkeling.

35 acres of awesome landscaping is yours to “drink in” every moment of your experience in Paradise. The world-class Moir Cactus Gardens cover over an acre next to the plantation manager’s home of the first sugar plantation in Hawaii. The cactus gardens were created by the wife of the original sugar plantation manager. Nearby, the pathways around the plantation home exhibit over 1,200 orchid plants and numerous Koy and water lily ponds. Ask us for pictures and details if you are interested.

Winnie and John are pleasant to work with and easily available in order to assure you a delightful experience. They provide shopping tips, driving instructions and special notes about places to visit. Guests can take advantage of their 30 years of travels to Kiahuna Planation and Kauai!!

About John Nabors

We have moved to Anchorage Alaska and finally retired. We have visited Kiahuna many times, the first in the the late 1970's! 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.

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.

John Nabors purchased this condo in 2012

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.

Beautiful building and impressive grounds in the perfect sunny location!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 8 days in this condo. My husband and I went with our 11 and 13 year old kids. It was an incredible time! The condo is in great shape and very well kept. The layout worked very well for us. The location right on Poipu Beach couldn't have been better. I especially enjoyed the orchid gardens and ponds as well as the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. We would go again in a heartbeat!!

Lovely, gracious, comfortable condo in the lush green, serene Poipu area is a wonderful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this lovely, quiet condo just steps away from the beach. All amenities are provided, so we really just had to unpack and relax! We especially loved breakfast on the lanai, serenaded by birds. Heavenly!

The treetop condo -#230

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed unit 230, it was on the third level, so no noise from above, and it was very private. Air conditioning isn't an issue because of the cool breezes blowing through the louvered windows front to back at night lull you to sleep. I am a light sleeper so brought ear plugs, I didn't hear any traffic noise.

The kitchen had everything we needed, and we ate in almost every night. The barbecues are close by and cleaned daily. The walk to the beach is a couple of minutes through beautiful grounds, and the snorkeling at Poipu beach was amazing and just a short walk away. Kauai has so many trails you can do something different every day, by the ocean or the canyon - that's our kind of holiday!

We had a wonderful vacation to celebrate our 35th anniversary, thank you John and Winnie!

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family could not get enough of Kauai. , and it all started with a great place to stay. The condo was exactly as it was described and fit our needs well. My wife and I were travelling with our 2 boys 16 and 18. They shared the hide a bed in the front room while we slept on the spacious king size bed in the Master Bedroom. The stroll to the beach was nice and not too long. The body surfing on the resort beach was a lot of fun and there was a great beach for boogie boarding just down the rode. I would definitely stay hear again.
