About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Condominium 181 is a deluxe one-bedroom, ground floor, end unit at Kiahuna Plantation located just 60 steps from the beach. Ideal!!

STOP! You can go to our owners' web site by clicking below on 'CLICK HERE' under links to more information.

Why does our unit create such a high rental following? The reasons we keep hearing from past renters...

1) Just steps from Poipu's best beach (60+/-, but who's counting?).

2) Watch the Hawaiian waves from the kitchen and living room.

3) A remodeled kitchen and bathroom/vanity - very comfortably furnished interior.

4) Perfect exposure to the tradewinds which, if desired, can flow through the entire unit.

5) Kid-friendly - on the main green

Kiahuna Plantation features arguably the best beach in Poipu, and our unit is one of only a few in the development to be so close to the sand. Many will have their 'morning sunrise' coffee on the sand and others will enjoy it from the ground level lanai while enjoying the fabulous and relaxing Hawaiian weather.

Included in your rental is membership in the Poipu Beach Athletic Club (swimming pool, workout center and tennis).

About Eric Juline

While we have owned our unit since 2007, we have been visiting Kiahuna since the early 1980's. Three generations of our family love to visit Kiahuna.

Eric Juline purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

Kiahuna is just the most relaxing and beautiful place we have ever visited.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have visited Kiahuna Plantation resort several times over the past 20 years, stayed in a variety of locations on the property, and hosted a beach wedding there in 2013. Needless to say, we’re very fond of Kiahuna Plantation. For our most recent December trip to Poipu Kauai, returning to Unit 181 was hands-down our top choice. It’s ground floor location is perfect for us, truly “steps to the beach” and not a long slog that some places describe as “steps.” It makes a world of difference for those who have limited mobility, or are traveling with children and all that entails. The unit is always clean and in good condition, with a well stocked kitchen. It’s corner location is so well-ventilated, a/c isn’t needed. We also appreciate the generous chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and cooler etc. in the condo available for our use. No need to find rental beach equipment.

We like to prepare our own meals during longer vacations and love to shop the abundance of Sunshine markets Kauai offers, and the Kukuiula culinary market which has Living foods market, Haole Girl bakery croissants, the Lasagne guy, fresh pies, etc.....

The bbq grills on the grounds are kept spotless, making meal preparation a joy. Meeting fellow travelers on the lawn at sunset and watching whales while grilling doesn’t get any better. In December we tried the Kauai shrimp, raised on the west side. Wow, they are good. We grilled the shrimp and made a salad with (amazing) avocado, citrus and fresh greens. Fresh papayas and apple banana for breakfast, with French toast made from sweet Hawaiian bread topped with coconut syrup.

One drawback: During part of our last visit, our daughter stayed with us, and she used the hide-a-bed a few nights. It is very uncomfortable! Only suitable for children, maybe? Perhaps a new mattress or a memory foam topper would be in order.

Ideally, we rent a two-bedroom unit if we travel with more than two adults. One problem with that at Kiahuna is, their two-bedroom units are mostly two-floor units with kitchen/living on separate floor from bedrooms, making it difficult for anyone who has mobility problems or difficulty using stairs.

All in all, we’ll be back for sure. Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo!

Another visit to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent another wonderful 15 days at what we believe to be the best Condo on the property! A great corner unit which allows the gentle breeze to flow through. The lanai looks over the Great lawn and the main pathway to the beach! We sit, talk with all the people that pass bye, and frequently use the BBQ's out front for dinner. The unit is very comfortable, and well equipped. We can relax, enjoying the kids that love to play out front and interact with their parents and grandparents. We are already reserved again for next year! Thank you Eric and E.

You cannot go wrong by renting this wonderful vacation spot and destination retreat

We have been renting this unit at the Kiahuna Plantation for several years. We have never been disappointed. It fits the old real estate phrase, LOCATION/LOCATION/LOCATION.

Perfect location, well appointed, an amazing time

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in Unit 181 a number of times and we always have a fabulous time. The location of unit 181 does not get any better, the view is beautiful and unit 181 is only steps from the beach.

The unit itself is tastefully updated and has everything you need to make your stay complete. The owner is very easy to work with and very responsive to guests needs.

The Kiahuna Plantation is a beautiful property with a great lawn that rolls right out onto the beach.

I highly recommend Kiahuna Plantation unit 181.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay! We loved the apartment and the resort. Snorkeling is amazing in Poipu, and I even spotted a Hawaiian monk seal whilst snorkeling :-) They even come up to the beach in the mornings. We will highly recommend staying in this beautiful apartment.

Never want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Walked the community daily for exercise and regularly saw monk seals and sea turtles on the beach. The public grounds are so spacious. Prepared our own meals daily as the kitchen had everything we needed. Appreciated the first morning coffee and tea already in the unit so we could have a cup before hitting the grocery stores. Close enough to airport, Costco, Walmart and major supermarket to make them convenient. Outdoor grills are handy and worked great. On site personnel super friendly. Daily floating in the gentle waves steps from the condo was amazing. Fastest week of our lives. Will definitely be back.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Sublime, peaceful, beauty, comfort, a home away from home. Our first visit to Hawaii and spent 10 nights in Unit 181 and we knew immediately this would be our future destination place to stay. We are booking next year now too.

This condo is the perfect location on the plantation and views are amazing. Condo has everything you could need. Ate our meals except one on the Lanai. We so enjoyed getting up early and watch the sun come up with a cup of coffee and of course the critters would visit (roosters and chickens) and some beautiful birds. Breezes were perfection and never once missed the AC.

Flowers on the plantation are breathtaking so don't forget your walks through the gardens and actually all around. Drinks and dinner at the Planation restaurant is a must. Cute shops across the street and cool places to eat.

Location perfect as away from main part of Kauai yet so close to everything we wanted and adventured to.

Shaved-Ice a must in the little town and you can even have a delicious pizza delivered.

Thank you for sharing your place with us.
