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.
We have the following sister listings:
VRBO #342044 Royal Garden, 1 bedroom, ground floor, Building 16
VRBO #424995 Royal Garden, 1 bedroom, third floor, Building 35
VRBO #790544 Garden View, 1 bedroom, third floor, Building 41
VRBO #616286 for a two bedroom condo #66 in Building 12 and #738811 for unit #246 in Building 37.
We have many years of experience with this resort. We and our Rental Manager travel to Kiahuna Plantation twice a year. We would like to help you find exactly what you want for your vacation experience.

Our rates are the lowest available in each category through the Outrigger rent program. No deposit is required for our reservations and full payment is not due until your departure. These affordable rates make our beach homes the ideal selection for your vacation in Paradise. We will quickly provide you with quotations for your vacation selections.

The ground-floor location gives you easy access from your vacation home to the expansive and level lawn extending from your lanai. There are no steps in or out. No bumping the luggage up the steps; no hauling the groceries up flights of stairs! Easy, like a vacation should be!

A king sized mattress set is available in the living room. The sofa bed has a queen mattress. We can reserve you a queen sized Aero bed air mattress for your trip. This mattress provides a more consistent comfort for adults on the sofa bed. The master bedroom contains an ample closet and a dresser to empty your suitcases. A lockable safe is included, of course.

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.
