About the property

Short Walk to Poipu Beach, Pool, Shops and Restaurants

- CALENDAR IS UP TO DATE.

- 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.

About Rick Jackson

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 memories during your stay, and that you feel at home in our special little condo.

Rick Jackson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Rick Jackson chose South Shore

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mahalo for this beautiful stay in Kauai! This was my husband and my first time to Kauai, and your hospitality and beautiful location made it truly memorable. Thanks for the chairs! We used them to visit many beaches up north and to relax at Poi-Pu.



We attended my first luau at the Sheraton; such lovely proximity!



We wish you all the best and cheers from San Francisco!



Mahalo,

Great area!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is close to everything in the southern part of the island!! This condo had everything we needed, dishes, towels, etc. The bbq was not working unfortunately so we used the oven. Be prepared to pay the cleaning fee up front. (The owner did inform of us of this ahead of time). Plenty of space for 2. Thank you for sharing your place with us!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Barbara. I’m glad you enjoyed the location in the South Shores area. We like it there far more than the northern part of the island as it doesn’t rain nearly as much. It’s still a beautiful part of the island though. Too bad the BBQ was down. The association has someone clean them each morning, so they look like new. I suspect a gas line issue or something like that if they were both down. See you next time! Aloha, Rick

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 8 days. First time to Kauai. Condo was nice, had everything we needed. The location of the building is close to the road, but the traffic didn't bother us--most of the roads are 35mph, so it's not like people can zoom noisily. On one hand, it was nice to be close to walk to the shopping center for dinner and souvenirs; but it was a little bit of a walk to the beach. Not a big deal for 2 30-something adults, but if we bring our young kids some day, I'd probably stay closer to the beach. We got lost our first few times and ended up at the other resort beach--beautiful walk through the property though! Boogie boards, umbrella, fins, hats, etc in the condo. No ac, but lots of fans, so we stayed comfortable at night.

The beach hut was great,providing towels and "local" places to go for activities and dinner. We didn't BBQ like we planned, but the grill is right outside the building. 30 mins from the airport--if you get in early enough, stop at the Walmart for provisions.

Only "surprise" was an extra $35 for a mid-week cleaning, but it was nice to have fresh towels.

Surf board rental: go to Nukamoi's at Poipu. Boards are so-so, but the guys are great, happy to tell you about surf spots, you can trade boards, and they only charge you for the days you have the board. Da Crack has great burritos at good prices. Olympic cafe has great wraps. We did a helicopter tour with Island Helicopters and a catamaran to Napali coast with Capt Andy--both were fabulous and I would highly recommend.

Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! It sounds like you had an amazing Kauai vacation. Yes, about 25% of the condos at the Kiahuna Plantation are at the back of the complex along Poipu Road. The disadvantage is that you can hear some road noise if you have the bedroom shutters open but, as you pointed out, it hasn’t generally been an issue. The advantage is that our condo is obviously cheaper than those closer to the beach. Guests can also walk across the street to the Starbucks, the grocery store, and the restaurants / bars across Poipu Road. There are also no condos across from ours, which affords our guests great privacy and awesome views of the Moir Gardens, as well as a partial view of the ocean. There are indeed lots of ways to walk through the 35-acre Kiahuna Plantation to access the beach, and it can be fun getting lost! However, the most direct path is simply through the Moir Gardens directly below our condo, which only takes about 4 or 5 minutes. The gardens are also beautiful! I’m glad you got to experience the Napali coast and even a helicopter ride. As you know, there’s so much more to see and experience on Kauai - but that can be on your next trip! Warm regards, Rick

Nicely updated!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Kiahuna 326!! Very nicely appointed with an open floor plan,well appointed, relaxing view of Moir gardens and even a slice of ocean view. The unit is well maintained.

Very pleasant and responsive staff.

Walking distance to Poipu Shopping Village , Kukui'ula Shopping Center, and lovely Kiahuna Beach.

This was our 5th visit to Kauai, and we would rate this as one of our favorite accommodations!

Owner's Response: Thank for your comments, Dick & Mary! Your comments are especially meaningful to me since this was your fifth visit to Kauai. The reasons you point out such as its proximity to the shops across the street, the short walk to the beach and the beautiful views from the lanai were the main reasons that we fell in love with this condo and bought it. I hope you stay with us again on your sixth visit to Kauai! Much Aloha, Rick

Bright garden view condo

  • 5 of 5

Nicely updated top floor condo view view of the gardens. Very comfy king sized bed, convenient location to Poipou shopping centre for restaurants and shops. A bit of a walk to the pool and gym area for families. Beautifully landscaped property for enjoying the garden island. Comes with a few chairs and an umbrella for beach days.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Kristin! I often hear that my guests enjoy the views of the Moir Gardens, and I do think the condo location is unique. Walk across the street to Starbucks for your morning coffee, or to Keoki’s Paradise for a nightcap before turning in. Or walk to the beach, finding different paths through the beautiful grounds each time. I recommend driving across the street to the pool and gym rather than walking. The Poipu Beach Athletic Center is pretty close, but is not part of the Kiahuna Plantation. The association has an arrangement with them, and all owners pay monthly dues so that our guests can use the pool and gym facilities. Mahalo, Rick

Great condo.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very clean and updated. A nice surprise was the beach chairs in the closet. The full kitchen and nearby bbq were handy. Rick is a great person to work with- very helpful and responded to emails quickly. He is a very good host. Good beaches within walking distance. Great walking path beside beach. A lot of the excursions work in the Poipu area so the location is great. Definitely would stay at his place again.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Terry, for taking the time to post some comments. I’m glad you found some of the items in the living room closet useful. We initially put a few things like chairs, coolers, boogie boards, kids’ toys, etc. Guests sometimes leave other items for the next guests, so I never know what is in the closet when I’m asked! Poipu Beach is indeed one of Kauai’s best beaches, and we like exploring all the paths through the beautiful grounds on the short walk down to the beach. Much Aloha, Rick
