About the property

Swimming, snorkling, bodyboarding and Surfing just steps away from your door

Celebrate Aloha and the tradition of Hawaii with a stay at our slice of paradise. You'll take a step back in time to a simple more relaxing period when you arrive at Kiahuna Plantation on the sunny south shore of the beautiful island of Kauai, 'The Garden Island'. Kiahuna Plantation is the only beachfront condominium resort in Poipu. Leisurely stroll the 35 lush acres and enjoy the feeling of Traditional Hawaii as you walk through gardens rich with tropical flowers, plants and beautiful trees, past ponds to a wonderful beach. Make a quick stop at the beach hut to pick up complimentary beach towels and chairs and enjoy the well-manicured lawn or relax on Kiahuna's sandy beach. Swim, surf or snorkel with brightly colored tropical fish and sea turtles or take a short walk to Poipu Beach, one of the world's best beaches as rated by Travel Magazines, TV and many guidebooks. Often when you arrive you can see Hawaiian monk seals sunning on the beach or playing in the crystal clear water. Large sea turtles are almost daily visitors and offshore whales and dolphins can often be seen! For the more adventurous, the highly professional and gracious Castle Resort staff is available on site, and can help make arrangements for more extensive adventures such as kayaking, luaus, helicopter tours, horseback riding, sunset sailing and more. Of course, no visit to Kauai is complete without a tour of the Waimea canyon and the Na'pali coast, each about an hour's drive from the condo. Take a little longer drive and head north to Kapaa, the Kilauea Lighthouse, some secluded beaches, Princeville, Hanalei (enjoy a cocktail at Tahati Nui- George Clooney did). Drive further north to find more beaches, caves and challenging hiking trails. Superb restaurants and a shopping village are a short walk from the condo and the new Kukuiula center is a longer walk or a very short drive for shopping and dining. Championship golf courses and beautiful hiking trails are nearby. Need a workout, prefer a pool to sand or wanting a few sets of tennis?

The Poipu Beach Athletic Club, pool and tennis courts are readily available and complimentary to our guests. Our home away from home is centrally located on the plantation. The beach, check in desk, Plantation Restaurant, laundry facilities, BBQ's, and parking are all easily accessible. Our unit is #227 in building #35. It is a top floor, one bedroom condo, with a lofted ceiling. The bedroom has a king size bed and the living room couch converts to a comfortable queen size bed. The condo sleeps four people with extra sleeping arrangements upon request. The large private lanai looks over gardens and mature trees with a partial ocean view. There are two lounge chairs plus a table with seating for four. It is the perfect place for a morning Kauai coffee, evening cocktail, glass of wine and a relaxing dinner. The recently remodeled bathroom has a full shower and bathtub. Two new ceiling fans, carpeting, a completely remodeled kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances was completed in October 2012. We are striving to create a clean, comfortable, and welcoming home for our guests to enjoy.

Please try to make your reservations as early as possible, as these units are very desirable and fill up quickly. Remember to check our calendar for availability before contacting us. We hope our condo and Kiahuna, in the best location and with the best weather in Kauai, become for you what it has been for us: a very special place.

About Kevin & Kate Egan

Over the years we have been lucky to have visited the four major islands and enjoyed the special qualities of each. We fell in love with Kauai! For over 30 years we have spent vacations on Kauai. We have stayed on the north shore, on the east shore and in the south in the Poipu area. Although we live in a beach community in Southern California, we look forward to our trips to Kauai. It takes us away from the frantic Southern California pace, allows us to relax, reconnect with nature and rejuvenate our bodies and aloha spirit. We have been fascinated by the Kiahuna Plantation's old world feeling of traditional Hawaii and fell in love with it's location and the beach. The Poipu area, although it has many visitors, also maintains a wonderful local feeling and aloha spirit. As a family we enjoy the beaches, especially the snorkeling around the Kiahuna Plantation and Poipu beach and as an avid long time bodysurfer, I enjoy Shipwreck's beach which is a short distance from our condo.

Kevin & Kate Egan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kevin & Kate Egan chose Poipu

We became familiar with Kauai, Poipu and Kiahuna over the years and the island area around the plantation became part of us. We have a special feeling when we are there. For years we have looked for just the right property to fully enjoy all the Island has to offer. We fell in love with Kiahuna and this condo because of Kiahuna's location on Kauai and the condo's location within Kiahuna Plantation. As an added bonus, the former owner has lovingly and tastefully remodeled and upgraded in exactly the way we would have done it ourselves!

We read the great reviews from guests that had stayed in this condo recently - many 5 star reviews!!!

What others have said about Kiahuna #227 and their stay-

'I've been to Kauai three times, and this condo experience surpassed all others. Everything was in tip top shape and very up-to-date.....

The grounds surrounding the condo are beautifully landscaped. We loved sitting on the lanai in the morning to enjoy our breakfast and the view.....

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the lovely Kiahuna Condos. Everyone there were so nice and accommodating ......and so friendly. The condo itself was wonderfully decorated and very functional....

It was everything as advertised and more. The Kiahuna grounds are gorgeous, the beach was easy access and beautiful, and the little shopping center across the street met all our needs.....

The view from the lanai was so serene and peaceful....

We loved the decor and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. We loved the view from our lanai, the tiki torches at night, the early morning rain showers and the sounds and scents of tropical paradise.....

The location is ideal - a 2 minute stroll to the ocean and there is a fantastic restaurant on the property. We will be back!

The apartment is airy, lovely, light, and quiet. We spent much of our time on the lanai, where we were visited daily by local and beautiful tropical birds. We were six minutes walk from my favorite beach for snorkeling.....'

What makes this condo unique

Our vacation home is centrally located within the plantation. It is surrounded by lovely tropical trees and gardens. It is a short walk one way to the beach and the other way to Castle Resort's exclusive Poipu Beach Athletic Club, tennis courts and swimming pool. It is also an easy walk to the on-site highly rated Plantation Gardens Restaurant and to Whaler's Village just across Poipu road. It is an upper level unit with tropical breezes and a lanai to take in the garden and ocean views. You might catch a whale spouting while eating on the lanai and watching the sunset over the blue Pacific. It is truly one of life's great pleasures!

Review of #227 at Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at unit #227 at Kiahuna. It was clean, the kitchen was modern, all the necessities like coffee machines, blenders and kitchen tools were new and spotlessly clean. They had a good supply of beach stuff; an umbrella, boogie boards, snorkels and goggles, coolers, everything you would need for the beach.

The owners Kevin and Kate were responsive to all of our needs and we thank them very much. I think we had excellent value in our stay at their unit and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kauai.

By the way if you are a golfer Poipu Bay is incredible!!

Updated and extremely clean condo unit in best location! Your home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

First, thank you to Kevin and Kate for allowing my wife and I to celebrate her birthday here in Kauai at their condo. It was indeed memorable and in the spirit of Kauai in its own way, relaxing. We have stayed in the Poipu area 5 times now in 14 years and we were excited to return to this condo for 3 weeks for the second time. That should speak for itself, but it's easy to gush about all the pluses and amenities of staying at this unit on Poipu Beach. My wife loves the partial ocean view and the great location of the condo. Kiahuna Plantation is the only condo complex on Poipu Beach. Maybe the best way to sum it up is both my wife and I feel like we are at home in this unit. As I said to the on-site realtor, I could tell Kevin and Kate gave LOTS of thought and time into the location of their purchase. She agreed. It's almost perfect. You will enjoy the short stroll to the beach in front of Kiahuna Plantation (maybe 2-3 blocks) or the short five minute drive to world class Poipu Beach Park, where you will see Monk Seals almost daily and sometimes turtles. Lots of snorkeling along Poipu Beach with lots of colorful fish to see. You are easily able to walk along the beach/walkway from Kiahuna Plantation to Poipu Beach Park. Sunsets from Poipu Beach Park can be amazing, while enjoying a shave ice from Brenneckes (across the street). The Tommy Bahama beach chairs found in the closet are very useful at the beach, along with whatever else one may need at the beach for a fun filled day. The bed is very comfortable. Since there is only one other unit past this condo your privacy compared to most units is automatically protected. I enjoyed sitting out on the lanai early in the morning, listening to the numerous birds, and looking over the complex with all of its immense tropical foliage and trees. It's a short two block walk to the Poipu Village Shopping Center. Other than the usual, such as Keokis Paradise Restaurant, I would recommend Anuenue Café for breakfast and try their acai bowl. We can't say enough good about the Garden Island Grill in Old Koloa Town (where Tom Cats use to be). Really good burgers, shrimp baskets, drinks, etc. My wife always loves going to Island Candle in Old Koloa Town for soaps, lotions and candles. Perfect gifts for others. We also had a really great time renting beach cruiser bikes from Kauai Cycle, riding along the bike path on the east side along the beach. Wonderful life long memories. We'll be back to this unit!

A week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune to spend a week in Kevin and Kate's lovely condo at Kiahuna Plantation. We loved the location of the unit: On the third floor with a view of the gardens with the ocean at a slight distance, the building was situated toward the back of the property. It was quiet and peaceful, and just a short walk to the beach. The unit was beautifully furnished, with an updated kitchen and bath. We appreciated the little extras, such as the snorkels, fins, umbrella and chairs---which we used everyday!--as well as the extra fans in each room, which kept the unit very comfortable. We spent mornings and late afternoons on the lounge chairs on the lanai, which also felt very private. We heard and saw birds, including egrets, as we sat outside with our morning coffee each day. Kiahuna Plantation is located near wonderful beaches---if you are beginning snorkelers, like we are, look no further than Poipu Beach, just a stone's throw away from this location. It is walking distance to shops. We would love to stay at Kevin and Kate's again and highly recommend it to others.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had not been to Poipu for many years and were happy to see it has not changed.

Still the same fantastic place we remember. Condo was great and very close to the beach.

It had everything we needed and is walking distance to shops and restaurants. We will come back much sooner this time.

Beautiful and Romantic Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had been putting off our honeymoon for over a year and couldn't wait to visit Kauai. We had a dream trip - everything went smoothly - from check-in to check-out. When we stepped into the condo we knew we had made the right choice! It was beautiful, clean and has a balcony with a lovely view of the ocean. We had our breakfast there every morning - our relaxing time before we began our day. Kate and Kevin had hooked up us with their go to concierge Sherrie , she was delightful. We had her on speed dial and she always accommodated us regardless of the time (even on Mother's Day!). Sherrie suggested various activities we might enjoy and booked them for us. We wanted to take a Catamaran ride to the Napali coast but she called the morning of our tour and told us she thought we should cancel as the winds were very high and water rough, She knew I had issues with motion sickness and didn't want us to have an unpleasant experience. Kate and Kevin provide snorkel equipment, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrellas so the days we snorkeled were very hassle free - no going through rentals etc. They also provide pages of information about restaurants, shopping areas and island tours - we loved everyplace they recommended. Wish we had more time to explore. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend their condo to any of our friends who are planning a trip to the amazingly beautiful island.

We will be back!! Sincerely, Gloria and David
