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.

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 South Shore

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.

Nice and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean, centrally located and easy to hang out at. Things that did not bother me but might bother someone else, bottom floor they recommend you do not leave the slider open at night for security reasons, there is no air conditioning and in my case the upstairs guests were heavy footed. For me, I liked not having air conditioning as my sinuses were happy all week and I preferred it. I opened the louvers next to the slider and got enough cross draft at night to keep the place cool. I cooked about half of my meals there and was able to grab a couple of beers and go hang out at the beach without putting on shoes at all. I'd stay here again.

Owner's Response: Kiahuna has 24 hour security by staff personnel who traverse the 35 acre property constantly. Keeping the sliders closed at night are just an extra precaution. Kiahuna relies on trade winds and fans to keep the units comfortable which most guests prefer.
