About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Queen Sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to unit 86, Bldg 16. My remodeled, smoke-free condominium is located in the beautiful Kiahuna Plantation on Kauai. It is the only beachfront condominium resort in Poipu Beach. Built in the classic Hawaiian casual style, the Plantation sits on 35 lush tropical acres.

Poipu Beach is on the warmer side (south) of the island and enjoys warm sunny days and gentle tropical breezes. Poipu Beach is consistently rated as one of the best and cleanest beaches in the world and Poipu Beach State Park, a short walking distance from the condo, is considered the safest beach on Kauai and perfect for your young keiki (children).

The readers of Travel and Leisure Magazine have voted Kauai the Best Island in Hawaii and the Second Best Island in the World! And we totally believe it still is! Forbes has also listed Poipu Beach as one of the 10 most breathtaking beaches in the world! There is lots to recommend Poipu Beach and Kiahuna Plantation

My ground-level condominium is lovingly maintained and furnished in the casual Hawaiian style with island art. The condominium features an up-to-date kitchen with all the features and tools a cook might want. It has Travertine tile throughout with carpet in the bedroom. It has Plantation Shutters, free Wi-Fi with high speed internet, digital cable TV and two flat screens. Step off the lanai onto a large manicured lawn and open space perfect for relaxing, sunning or playing with your kids.

Your family will enjoy the pool at the newly remodeled Poipu Beach Athletic Club. The club includes pool with water slide and children's shallow beach end, cardio and weight rooms, tennis, basketball and pickle ball courts and a restaurant. It is all complimentary to you through my membership.

If you don't want to cook there are lots of restaurants within walking distance from very casual to fine dining. You'll find something for every appetite in very close proximity to the condo.

If golf is your game you've come to the right place. Kiahuna Golf Club is nearby and there's a top rated PGA course at the Hyatt less than 2 miles away. Several other courses are a short distance away.

The Kiahuna Plantation and our condo provide the ultimate peaceful, relaxing, tropical environment Kauai and Hawaii are famous for. Make my condo your home while you explore all the wonderful attractions Kauai has to offer.

If you are traveling with other family or friends I have access to other close-by ground floor 1 bedroom units. Please let me know if you need additional units and I will be glad to assist you.

About Roger Mullenhour

Roger retired from the utility industry as a Senior Manager and spent several years as a consultant to Fortune 100 companies on utility issues. He recently completed 6 years of service on the Board of Director's for the property.

Roger's passion is photography and finds the island has wonderful opportunities for that elusive perfect shot. He teaches photography workshops on Kauai and in Monterey, CA with Kiahuna owner and photographer Alan Hart. Roger and Alan also photograph weddings at Kiahuna and nearby locations.

Roger Mullenhour purchased this condo in 2004

Why Roger Mullenhour chose Poipu

I was looking for a quiet, laid-back location to live part of the year. Kauai and the Kiahuna Plantation fit my needs perfectly. I also wanted a location fronting on a great beach with lots of sun as I love the beach and water. Kiahuna filled all the items on my list.

What makes this condo unique

The property covers 35 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with large expanses of manicured lawns. The great lawn provides wonderful lounging, whale watching and expansive views of the ocean and beach. The beach is perfect with snorkeling, swimming and surfing being excellent. I suggest the small cove to the left of the beach for the best tropical fish and directly in front of the property for routine turtle sightings. Sitting on the lanai at breakfast, watching the beautiful sunsets from the great lawn while enjoying the trade winds all make for wonderful carefree days. Kiahuna is perfectly situated about halfway between each end of the island and is the perfect starting location to begin your island exploring.

Great stop over

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Roger’s condo for 3 days in the south of Kauai before heading up north. We had a phenomenal time, and it was a perfect place to make a base for exploring the south part of the island. Would easily return.

cleaning fees are way too high

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the facility was excellent. Location, beach, restaurant. Everything.

Except for the cleaning fees. A required mid week cleaning for two people is completely unnecessary. $75 for the mid week and another $125 at the end of a week. Pathetic.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay in a one room condo at the Kiahuna Plantation. The lush lawn and plantings, beautiful beach, and delicious food in the attractive setting of the Plantation Garden restaurant, all made our stay perfect. We also loved being near Poipu Beach and many good restaurants.

Great place but away from beach

  • 4 of 5

The unit is in excellent condition and well equipped. It looks out over a maniqued lawn, but is about as far for the beach as it possible to get wthn the Plantation. Not a problem for young people, but a bit far for some of us who a bit older.

The beach s great except that the bottom drops away very quickly so take care.

The Plantation has it's own beach wth a nice lawn behind it.

Owner's Response: Kiahuna Plantation is the only condominium development in Poipu Beach actually fronting on a beach. The three minute walk to the beach from the condo through the grounds is easy. The sand comes and goes with the swells so at times drops away and in a couple of days it is filled back in. Usually 100 feet out is only waist deep for adults.

perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here at the Kiahuna Plantation. Great location. Our condo was beautifully appointed, just a short walk to the beach, or across the street for a quick bite for breakfast or lunch. Would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great place to stay
