About the Property
Short Walk to Poipu Beach, Pool, Shops and Restaurants
- INCLUDES *FREE* USE OF POOL, TENNIS COURTS, AND FITNESS CENTER.
In Hawaiian “Kiahuna” means “Special Place”. The Kiahuna Plantation is indeed a special place that invokes memories of Old Hawaii during the early plantation days. The ONLY beachfront condominium resort in Poipu, its 35-acre grounds feature expansive landscaped lawns with mature palm, banyan and plumeria trees, lush tropical gardens with fragrant flowers, a picturesque lagoon, and low-density bungalow-style vacation condos.
The warm, turquoise water and crescent-shaped beach is protected by a reef, and is consistently rated as one of the top beaches in the US! A short walk through the beautiful tropical grounds, or the historic Moir Gardens directly below our condo, and you'll be right at Poipu beach!
OUR KIAHUNA CONDO AMENITIES (Unit 326 / Bldg 39)
Our condo has been extensively remodeled. Upgrades include new kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, two flat screens TVs, a DVD player, California King size mattress, iPod docking stereo, and great lanai furniture. We also upgraded the bathroom to include a new vanity with granite top, and replaced the original tub with a walk-in shower with slate tile and glass doors. While we updated the unit to today’s standards, we did leave the original Old Hawaii plantation charm throughout with the original mahogany wood interior accents.
All the Kiahuna Plantation condos are breeze-cooled with no A/C. The furnished 240 square foot lanai looks directly over the famous Moir Gardens. There's also a convenient double BBQ island right next to our building, so cook your dinner and walk down to the back or enjoy dinner on the lanai. Our condo offers great privacy, free WiFi, free parking, in-room safe, no resort fee, and is smoke-free.
KIAHUNA PLANTATION AMENITIES
The Kiahuna Plantation features free parking, a beach-side activity center where you can get complimentary chairs, $7 / day boogie boards, and a coin operated Laundromat. The Plantation Gardens Restaurant, which is down the path from our condo, offers cocktails and dinner with great views of the grounds.
OUR CONDO’S LOCATION IN THE COMPLEX
Our condo is located in Bldg. 39 on the second floor (9 easy steps up), and overlooks the Moir Gardens from the lanai. With the beautiful gardens behind our building rather than another building, the condo offers complete privacy. It is considered a 'Garden View Deluxe' unit, as it does not have a direct view of the ocean, but is closer to the beach than the 'Garden View' units and offers great views and privacy. Take one of the myriad of paths leading through the grounds, and you'll be on the Great Lawn or Poipu Beach in 3 - 4 minutes!
The Poipu Shopping Village is an easy stroll across Poipu Road. It features several restaurants including Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi, Puka Dog, and Keoki’s Paradise (our absolute favorite!) that features an open-air setting with a small lagoon, tiki torches and indoor waterfalls! You'll also find a small grocery store, Starbucks, and many shops for gifts, art, and clothing.

FAQs - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS CONDO?
Value! While we offer very competitive rates, our condo is far from a low-grade condo. It has been tastefully remodeled, and is walking distance to Poipu Beach, as well as the shops, restaurants and bars at the nearby Poipu Shopping Village. It also provides privacy and amazing views of the Moir Gardens.
DOES IT HAVE A VIEW OF THE OCEAN?
No. (Actually, there is a partial view of the ocean from the lanai, and it is close enough to hear the surf in the evening.) It has amazing views of the Moir Gardens directly below the lanai.
HOW FAR IS IT TO THE BEACH?
The beach is a pleasant 3 - 5 minute walk through the beautiful grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation. You'll enjoy exploring the various pathways to the beach!
DOES THE CONDO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING?
No. None of the Kiahuna Plantation condos offer air conditioning as the electrical grid in the buildings cannot support the power requirements for A/C. They are breeze cooled via the trade winds. There are also ceiling fans in each room and several free-standing fans.
DOES THE CONDO INCLUDE USE OF THE POOL & FITNESS CENTER?
Yes. All Kiahuna Plantation condos now include free membership for our guests at the Poipu Beach Athletic Center (PBAC) across the street. Reference www.PoipuClub.com for details about the athletic center.
WHAT CATEGORY CONDO IS THE CONDO?
There are 5 condo categories ranging from Ocean Front (closest to beach) to Garden View (farthest from beach). Ours is a "Garden View Deluxe" condo, which is not too far from the beach, offers great privacy as well as great views of the famous Moir Garden.
WHAT FLOOR IS THE CONDO ON?
Our condo is on the second floor of Building 39. However, since the first floor is below the parking lot level, there are only 9 steps to climb!
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN THE CONDO ACCOMMODATE?
Fire codes limit occupancy to a total of 4 persons, adults or children. It's ideally suited for a couple since there's a King size bed in the bedroom. However, the living room has a pullout sofa-sleeper that works out great for a child or two children. Four adults can share the condo, but it may be a bit crowded!
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR LONGER STAYS?
Yes. Please contact me with your vacation dates.
WILL YOU OFFER A DISCOUNT FOR LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS?
Yes. If we have open days that may not get booked, we will certainly offer a discount.
CAN YOU HEAR ROAD NOISE FROM THE CONDO?
About 25% of the buildings that house the condos are located toward the back of the grounds along Poipu Road, including ours. With the bedroom shutters open you can hear some road noise. If you're a very light sleeper you may want to consider a condo closer to the beach; however, they are typically priced quite a bit higher. It hasn't generally been an issue as you can tell by reading our reviews.
WE HEAR THAT THESE CONDOS ARE OLD. HAS YOURS BEEN UPDATED?
Entering some of these condos is like going through a time warp to 1980, as many are still original! Ours has been extensively remodeled, but still maintains the old Hawaiian plantation charm.

Kiahuna Plantation is located on Poipu Beach in the South Shores area on Kauai. It is located on 35 acres of beach-front property with manicured tropical plants and trees, expansive lawns, on-site restaurant & bar, lily and koi ponds, and a tropical lagoon.
The condo is an easy walk to nearby shopping and restaurants. Poipu’s two championship golf courses are also just minutes away.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We discovered the Kiahuna Plantation while driving around the island on our honeymoon in 2002. We were already mesmerized by Kauai’s natural beauty, its friendly people, the rich culture, and the great climate. However, the Kiahuna Plantation left an indelible impression on us! We had discovered the jewel of Kauai with the most beautiful beach we had ever seen, the Great Lawn, the tall palm trees swaying in the breeze, and the manicured grounds with traditional beach house bungalows sprinkled throughout the 35-acre grounds. We came back to Kauai for our 10th anniversary and stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation, and decided to make it a permanent part of our lives. The vision of our grandkids playing on this beach and experiencing Kauai was just too much to resist. We sincerely hope that you create meaningful family memories during your stay, and that you feel at home in our special little condo.
Why the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
Kauai is very special to us since we started our married lives together there. The Kiahuna Plantation has also become an important place for us, and we look forward to spending time here with family and friends. While we have both traveled quite a bit and have also lived abroad, we still feel that Kauai has so much to offer. It has become our second home and we look forward to our visits to Kauai.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Its location, an easy walk to the beach through the beautiful grounds, and the many amenities nearby make it an ideal location. It’s located directly in front of the historic Moir Garden, from where it’s a short walk to the on-site Plantation Restaurant & Bar. It has also been extensively remodeled. A convenient double BBQ island is directly next to our building. No need to use your car to go for coffee at Starbucks, a cocktail & dinner, or groceries, as it’s a short stroll across the street to the Poipu Shopping Village that features great restaurants and shopping.
