About Mary Ann Nahmens

Jim and Mary Ann Nahmens live and work on the Peninsula of the SF Bay Area. Our now 17 yr. old son grew up on the Kiahuna beach and considers it his 2nd home. We have shared family reunions, college classmate reunions, multiple family vacations together and quiet, alone time there.

Mary Ann Nahmens purchased this condo in 2002

Why Mary Ann Nahmens chose Poipu

Kiahuna means 'special place' and this is so true! It quiets our busy minds and soothes the heart when we first arrive. The location of 151 enjoys the ocean breezes and sway of tropical trees and plants from the moment you walk in the door. We've had uncountable soccer, baseball and Frisbee pick up games just outside our back lanai door. We share extras with you such as boogie boards, cooler, beach umbrella to help you enjoy your stay.

  • 5 of 5

I was thrilled to be able to return to 151 at the Kiahuna. It was my fifth visit but I had not been there in 6 years due to my husband's deteriorating health. It is so beautifully furnished and so comfortable and peaceful with a beautiful view onto the gardens. I hope very much I can go again in the future.

Spring break week!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit twice now. It's a great unit for 3 people, ground floor, which we love. The lanai is really pretty, walking right out onto the grass and beach area. The unit is small, so great for a couple. The hide-a-bed isn't the most comfortable, so 2 people would be ideal. Kiahuna is very quiet, so lower floor is not an issue with guests above. We have been in this unit twice now and never had any issues with noise. We had a great time! Thank you for a great week!

Great place for sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property.

Suggestions- owner needs to obtain better knives. Very difficult to cut meat or fresh ahi with current knives. Also a new mattress cover for sofa bed is needed.

Owner's Response: Great to have you back and glad you enjoyed the property and the unbeatable sunsets! I so appreciate you contacting me to report on the sofa bed - a new mattress cover is on it's way and entire sofa bed mechanism & mattress ordered and to be delivered within the month. Sharp knives disappear quickly and have been replaced multiple times. I think keeping a sharpener on hand will help and that too, is on it's way! Mahalo, Mary Ann

The most peaceful place to spend time....awesome!

  • 5 of 5

So many things to do and most of it is close by. Our room was located perfectly with only a 1 or 2 minute walk to the beach thru the grass, nice quiet location with a nice view. Everything in the room is well maintained as well as everything outside, so well kept and clean. Can’t wait until our return next year.

Wonderful return to Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Unit 151 and it did not disappoint.

So much easier to pack for a trip when you are familiar with the lodging.

Location is good....within walking distance to the beach. We appreciate the ground floor access because of difficulty in walking. For cooks who like sharp knives....bring your own (or is it allowed in checked luggage?). The serrated knife set in the unit will macerate your food.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy that you enjoyed yourselves again! The location is so great for peace and quiet as well as easy access to beach. Sorry for the dull knives - every time I get a better set in there, they disappear. I'll try having a sharpener handy! Mary Ann
