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!

Good Poipu Resort Location, Unit problems

  • 3 of 5

Just returned from a week visit. We enjoyed the resort beach and feeling of the grounds and will return to Kiahuna Plantation but will choose a different condo.

Thinking it was a quiet unit based on the reviews and it's distance from the road turned out to be wrong. We had noise 24/7 from the compressor/ generator from the adjacent resort. We were wakened by water hammer from the pipes every morning at 6 am. The toilet squealed on a regular basis , leaking or not filling, reported by the previous tenant and now us.

The cleanliness of the condo especially the dishwasher leave a great deal to be desired as also reported by the previous tenant.

The reviews noting "everything we needed was here'' doesn't match our experience.

Certainly a range of spices for cooking and some oils could be added as I seen in many condos we have stayed at.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed and sorry to learn about your issues with our unit. I have contacted out rental agent to make sure they address the problems that are under their control such as the toilet squealing, unit cleanliness especially the dishwasher and the water hammer. The compressor/generator noise is a puzzle, but I have asked them to investigate that as well. Our unit is very well-equipped with pots, pans, cooking utensils etc., but we do not provide oils or spices and did not suggest that we do. Yours is the first review we have received that is not a stellar one so we are committed to correcting any problems that might exist.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

More than enough room for two people. Plenty of convenient parking. Nice bathroom, plenty of cross breeze and ceiling fans, and a very quick walk to a beautiful beach. We loved it here.

Good condo, responsive owner, love Poipu

  • 4 of 5

I've stayed once before at Kiahuna. It is a good location. We enjoyed the proximity to the Starbucks and keoki's paradise restaurant and shopping across the street as well as nice shopping center n restaurants at the roundabout which is close by. Arcanti's condo is in middle so pretty good location within the condo complex, not too far a walk to the beach at all. I appreciated the small cooler provided in the closet for taking snacks and drinks. The condo was furnished nicely, and owner was very responsive. Fun to walk a bit from here down past the Marriott beach club to snorkel, seeing fish and coral. Also kid and adult surf lessons right at Kiahuna's lawn if you are into that, which is convenient. Looked pretty safe for young ones to do there.

Well laid out - lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Kauai so we really felt like we lucked out booking this condo. The condo was very comfortable and super clean. The location is perfect - 5 minutes to several top notch restaurants and shopping. The restaurant on site is amazing - it was dark when we finished our dinner so we were given a complimentary ride back to our unit in a golf cart! You will not be disappointed booking this condo, beautiful grassy lawn, on the beach, lovely balcony and the grounds are beautiful. Parking was right outside the unit. Owner was very easy to work with. We would stay here again.

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.

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.
