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 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.

Well appointed and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my husband, myself and our two kiddos. The beach access is amazing! The grounds were well kept. The towel service was an unexpected bonus. The beds were super comfortable. I have nothing to complain about. We will never forget our stay here and encourage others to give it a try. It is well worth the money. Oh, and the artwork on the walls is beautiful. These photos were taken by the owner. They are worth noticing!

Owner's Response: I am pleased you and your family enjoyed Kiahuna and the condo. Being the only condominium development in Poipu fronting on a beach makes it a special property. Spread over 35 acres it takes a lot of dedicated employees to maintain the property and grounds. I look forward to your return visit.

Wonderful condo! Better than Sheraton

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at your condo - we were on a package stay at the Sheraton and in a garden view room earlier in the week. The Sheraton was pretty cramped for our family. We switched over to Roger's condo for just 2 days, I wish we had chosen to stay at your place for the whole week instead.

The condo was so well decorated too, with great detail to Hawaiian style. Very clean and when we opened the plantation shutters, the trade winds felt so good as it cooled down the room. The grounds and beach access were gorgeous as well. Proximity to Poipu beach and south shore was very convenient. I would highly recommend Roger's condo for your next Kauai vacation. We will be coming back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review of your stay in my condo. Kiahuna is a special property and the only condominium development in Poipu fronting on a beach. The 35 acres of lush lawns and grounds provide the Hawaiian experience that brings people back to the islands. I look forward to your return.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Kauai! Amenities were welcoming, and checking in and out was really easy. This location was perfect—5 min walk down to the beach, but right near the parking lot for easy unpacking. We loved the beach toys (sand toys, boogie boards, etc), and the updated kitchen and bathroom are gorgeous. We had breakfast out on the lanai, and our kids loved playing catching on the grass right outside. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Absolutely beautiful condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and perfectly updated, loaded with lots of amenities too. We had a great time and we honestly can’t wait to stay in this condo again. The walk from the condo to the beach wasn’t long at all and the landscaping couldn’t have been more gorgeous! The beach had two adorable monk seals on it all week and the water was crystal blue. I don’t there’s a more beautiful beach on Kauai. Kiahuna is Kauai’s greatest gem and I’m so grateful to have finally found the perfect condo to keep returning back to. I honestly have no complaints. The owner was very friendly to work with and the Kiahuna staff had excellent hospitality.

Kauai was awesome! Condo was clean and comfortable after long days of exploring!

  • 5 of 5

First time on Kauai and loved it! Condo is in great location for driving around to various spots on the island (Captain Andy's boat tour, Waimea Canyon). Condo was clean, comfortable, and the perfect size for the two of us! Easy walking distance to shops and beach.
