What makes this condo unique

Kiahuna is the only condominium resort located directly on Poipu Beach. No need for shoes when you walk to the beach. Our unit is truly a Paradise location that offers the privacy and security of being on the second floor and a beautiful view of Kiahuna's gorgeous grounds. Because it is located in the middle of the resort, the unit is quiet at night and does not get the noise from Poipu Rd. that units at the rear of the property do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my 5th stay at this resort and it never changes. Probably one of the best locations on Kauai, on the beach and has spacious green lawns for those who don't like the sand but want to be at the beach. This is a great place for families, the kids have lots of space to play outside. Just an all round good value. Your condo was very nice. We did stay in this exact unit for Christmas about 7 years ago. The upgrades since were nicely done. Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Another amazing vacation in this villa

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, we rented this unit for a week for my mom to visit us while we stayed next door at the Marriott (larger units and we are a family of four). The unit at Kiahuna Plantation is lovely, very comfortable, and just perfect for her stay. Steven made the reservation process easy. We would gladly rent here again, and likely will!

We had a great stay at this unit and would happily come again. Instead of a distant ocean view, we had a lush green view with lots of open space. Very restful and quiet.

The unit was well equipped, comfortable, and very convenient. The owners were also very good communicators which made things easy.

A Happy Place.

Beautiful grounds and best location!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Kiahuna property- it is the best beach and close to good food and shops. Beaches are safe and full of wildlife- we always see harp seals and sea turtles! We come back year after year!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great location, very short walk to the beach, off the main road which cuts down on noise from cars and chickens. Well stocked, we appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler so we could switch beaches (although the beach in front of the Kiahuna is hard to beat). Condo was in great shape and we would definitely stay here again. The owner was easy to work with and responsive.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 yr old stayed in this condo for 4 nights. There was plenty of space and it was a very short walk to the beach! However while we were there the waves were quite big but we drove probably 30 seconds down the road to the beach park and that was great!! There is a kiddie ocean pool that is fabulous!! The list the owner provided was very helpful! We ate at most of the places he had listed and our food was always great!! Would definitely stay again!!

perfect location for our young family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely satisfied with our stay at the Kiahuna Plantation. We started out the new year in Kauai, and could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay with our young daughters. The condo has everything to accommodate your stay - well stocked kitchen with all the essential kitchen utensils, dishes, and cookware. We enjoyed dinner on the balcony, but even better was the lush stretch of green grass that our girls loved running around on and we could keep an eye on them from the balcony. We took advantage of the grills at sunset most evenings and met so many nice people. The condo literally is just a quick walk to the beach and there wasn't a day in our 10 day stay that we were not playing at the beach. During the winter season, the ocean on this side of the island is much calmer and it was perfect for our kids. There is a cove right next to the beach in front of the condo that was perfect for snorkeling. We saw a Hawaiian monk seal that we were told is a regular at this beach, and saw humpback whales during sunset multiple times. And what we really came to love and appreciate was the community at sunset - we met so many young families, many who come regularly at that time of the year. Our girls made friends quickly and sunset was fun for so many reasons. We walked daily to different nearby restaurants - our favorites were at the Poipu Shopping Village across the street from the plantation: Anuenue Cafe is open at 6am for a really fantastic breakfast (and coffee!), Bangkok Happy Bowl Thai Bistro and Bar has fantastic Thai food, and of course, Puka Dog - there is also Starbucks! We enjoyed checking out the highlights of the island, but were always looking forward to returning to the condo and "our beach". We would happily stay at this condo again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We love watching the small children run around on the lawn outside our unit. Come back again, soon!

Don't miss the beautiful orchid garden on the property. Take a surfing lessons, boogie board, body surf, swim or just relax at Kiahuna's beautiful, safe beach. Many excellent restaurants nearby, some within walking distance. Cooking in is a great option. Enjoy the gas grills on the property to grill delicious fresh fish or locally-raised beef or chicken. Monday's at noon don't miss the Koloa farmers' market where you can find wonderful fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers grown by Kauai's farmers.
