About the property

Beautiful Ground Floor 1 Bedroom Condo With Ocean Views. Ask about 17 others.

Robin and Don have the perfect location for your vacation – an Ocean View, ground floor convenience, bright and modern furnishings, corner unit windows and a membership in the Poipu Beach Athletic Club for their guests.

This Kiahuna Plantation vacation home in Building 24 has everything that you need for a wonderful vacation. The beach is less than 100 yards away through a grassy beachside lawn. Pickup your complementary towels and beach chairs at the Beach Hut and, ”lickiety split,” you will be on the beach. You are invited to view the lawn pictures toward the beach and toward our building 24. The lanai has a small railing with a gate to the lawn. This is perfect for lawn access, and maybe the containment of a little one.

We call our condo SURFERS COVE. Our first floor corner unit one-bedroom unit is our own Kiahuna Plantation home. Each time we return, it delights us, as it does our guests. During our ownership, we have remodeled it (new kitchen, new shower, new bathroom); redecorated it (bright and colorful new fabrics on living room upholstery and dining room upholstery (2012); new carpets (2012); new king-sized bed (2010); new living room sofa bed (2012); new lanai furniture); supplied it for family fun and adventure (boogie boards, lawn chairs, beach umbrellas, games, music, books and paddle ball sets); equipped it for entertainment (flat screen television; CD player; DVD player; iPhone charger; high speed internet service; and created an open kitchen equipped for cooking and grilling (multiple kitchen gadgets and equipment not normally supplied to Kiahuna guests). There are ample closets, dressers and a locked safe.

Best of all is our home’s location. Through the bedroom and kitchen windows, we have a view of the twin bridges – an iconic landscaping feature of the resort that reflects its traditional plantation architecture history. Though the sliding glass doors of the dining room and living room and from the lanai, we see the famed Kiahuna lawns dotted with palm trees and the ocean. No other buildings block our view of the ocean, which is less than a 2 minute walk across the lawns. These three side windows provide lush views and the daily trade winds that keep the island cool at night and comfortable during the day.

The full kitchen has a glass top range, a mounted microwave over, a full size refrigerator with an icemaker and all the appliances that you would expect. The kitchen counters are granite and easy to maintain. The pass through to the dining area also has a granite top. We will provide you with a list of all the kitchen appliances and utensils. A set of dishes, glasses and dinner ware are furnished for a setting of 6. If you need additional settings for a party, just call Housekeeping for extra sets.

John Nabors is our Rental Manager for our condo. John and Winnie have 30 years of experience at Kiahuna Plantation and will host you as our guest. He can often arrange this condo as one of several condos for family gatherings or weddings. Check out their 3rd story Treehouse condo at VRBO listing #424995 in Building 35 and their ground floor condo #88 in Building 16.

Kiahuna #158 owns a membership in the brand new Poipu Beach Athletic Club, located directly across Poipu Road from Kiahuna. The PBAC provides a large pool with a slide and an infant/toddler wading area; beach chairs, tables and umbrellas; a hot tub; tennis courts; a modern fitness room with excellent weight machines; a cardio room; a beach hut and bathrooms. Construction is still underway on a bar and grill located poolside; an all-purpose court for basketball, Pickleball and other court games, volleyball courts, and a yoga lanai. As a guest in our unit, you will be able to use these facilities, at no extra charge. John will send you photos of this club.

Check with us even if our calendar shows as ‘not available.’ We can assist you in finding just the right vacation accommodation for yourself, your family and your friends at Kiahuna Plantation. Our experience is that many vacation inquiries start with certain specifications and end up with a quite different set of requirements than originally thought.

VRBO #424995 Royal Garden, 1 bedroom, third floor, Building 35

We provide free high-speed Internet, modern voicemail, a CD player, a living room HD TV to provide you the comfort and services that you expect in a resort. Wi-Fi service in our condo is included at no cost.

Generous lanai furniture provides you with the opportunity for outside dining and lounging. The large table will serve 4 to 6 people. The afternoon sun is just perfect on the lanai. The landscaping on the side of the lanai provides privacy, yet a view to the Twin Bridges area.

Outrigger’s 24-hour front desk and Concierge Desk provide the expected resort services. Outrigger has excellent security and a maintenance staff 24 hours a day to contribute to your trouble free vacation. The housekeeping staff is available upon request to give you privacy or comfort at your discretion.

The Beach Hut serves your beach needs with beach chairs and beach toys. The Beach Hut provides visitors to the expansive main lawn with lawn chairs, towels at no charge, and concierge services. Snorkel gear, drinks and snacks can be charged to your room. Huge swaying palm trees shade portions of the two+ acre lawn immediately adjacent to the famous Poipu Beach. The lawn is great place to read, watch children play lawn games and experience the spectacular sunsets.

USA Today has rated our beach one of the 10 best beaches in the world. The Poipu Beach area has the best beaches and sunniest portion of Kauai. Kiahuna Golf Course is just 2 blocks away. Restaurants and shops are a short walk across the street from the resort.

35 acres of awesome landscaping is yours to “drink in” every moment of your experience in Paradise. The world-class Moir Cactus Gardens cover over an acre next to the plantation manager’s home of the first sugar plantation in Hawaii. The cactus gardens were created by the wife of the original sugar plantation manager. Nearby, the pathways around the plantation home exhibit over 1,200 orchid plants and numerous Koy and water lily ponds. Ask us for pictures and details if you are interested.

Several of our favorite restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. The Plantation Gardens Restaurant is on-property and a first class place for one of your dinners. We will provide that information to you.

Winnie and John Nabors are pleasant to work with and easily available in order to assure you a delightful experience. They provide shopping tips, driving instructions and special notes about places to visit.

Tell them the adventures you'd like to experience in Kauai and they will help you find it. Enjoy secluded beaches, zip-lining on a private plantation, kayaking, hiking, 'mud bugging', surfing, or a relaxing while surrounded by 35 acres of landscaped grounds. They have done it all and will help you find the activities that suit your vacation goals.

Fourth time here; we love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time I have come to Kauai; I always stay at the Kiahuna Plantation. To me, it's feels like going to Hawaii should--beautiful grounds, the beach, palm trees. In fact, I took my sister on one trip there and she said she "now knew what it would be like to be in heaven!" Such a great feeling there--staff are all very friendly and units are spotless.

Clean and comfortable condo in a beautiful location that was perfect for our whole family.

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying here! Our 2 young boys loved running on the grass and exploring the grounds. The beach is gorgeous, snorkeling right next to the Plantation is good, we even had a sea turtle swim right by us our first day there while 4 turtles were resting on Poipu Beach. Nobody wanted to leave!

Most of the units here seem pretty similar (our friends were in another building), simple but clean and comfortable. 158 has plants around the deck which provides shade and some privacy.

No food comes with the kitchen (no spices, S&P, oil, etc) and only a small bottle of shampoo and lotion (no conditioner) was provided so bring what you need!

All in all we loved our stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Mary, Thank you for your 5 star review. We often find that our guests do not know that disposable items such as oil and spices cannot be stored from one guest to the next. We have recently started sending a notice just before arrival of suggestions that we have for bringing such items. Wee are happy that the boys enjoyed the spacious grounds. We have experienced that with our grandchildren, too. Come back to see us in the future. Mahalo, John Nabors for the owner.

Next time we're in Kauai, we want to stay here

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location; a 3-minute walk to the beach; an ocean view from the lanai, downstairs means cooler, an end-unit means a bit quieter. Comfortable bed. We had two occasions with 11 family members gathering in the main room for supper (hot off the nearby grill) and it worked out beautifully.

Another important plus: the staff on the grounds are very responsive and competent. We called about a frig issue and maintenance was there later that day. We found the unit spanking-clean and comfortable.

Convenient location to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We love Kiahuna Plantation and have stayed in several units on the property. The best thing going for this particular property is the location, a very easy stroll to the beautiful beach. The photo shown is NOT the view you have in this condo. It is listed as being ocean view but in order to see the ocean, one had to stand on a chair to see over the 6-7 ft tall torch ginger plants in front of the lanai. For us, it was definitely not an ocean view.

The unit was clean with standard furnishings. The TV was jury rigged on the wall with lots of wires coming down from it.The bedroom decor was pleasing with a comfortable bed. The bathroom could use updating, especially the toilet position. The kitchen is furnished with all of the things one needs to cook a meal, plenty of dishes, glassware and cooking utensils. The spices and condiments are up to you--there are plenty of grocery stores nearby. There were lots of items in the closet for recreation which we appreciated greatly....buggy boards, umbrellas, beach games and plenty of good books and CD'S.

We called maintenance several time for minor issues and they came quickly. Also, security called us when we moved in to give us information about safety.

Thank you John for an enjoyable stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha Mary, Thank you for your detailed comments, especially the one about the view. The owner is on property once a year and has a difficult time monitoring the status of the trimming. Certainly, the view exceeds the mass of the landscaping as a priority. Possibly there is no standard for the height of that hedge, but there should be. The owner and I have communicated our concerns for view with the landscaping management. We hope to see you again in the near future and we will have the hedge trimmed properly. Mahalo, John Nabors for the owner

Great choice!!

Beautiful condo in paradise. Excellent location. Easy access to beach but setback from the noisy beach activities. Gate to patio and lawns a plus. We are sorry that it was unavailable for next year.

The perfect way to spend a family vacation. A truly beautiful condo and property.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our vacation at this property and felt we stayed in the best unit. Great amenities, beautiful property and grounds and an amazing beach. There is no need to leave the property as it has it all right at your lenai!!! The property manager, John, was amazing and available for any and all questions. We never felt as if we were on our own after reserving the unit. He was there every step of the way. We intend on returning every year to this unit and property. This unit was perfect in every way.
