About the Property
The Beach Activity Hut is conveniently located on the central lawn and offers complimentary beach chairs and towels to our guests. Swim as often as you like and always have a clean towel and chair to dry off in. The activity hut is the perfect place to learn about the many local tours and adventures and book one or two of your own (assuming you have any desire to leave your lanai). The Beach Hut also rents snorkel gear so you can swim with the large variety of colorful fish in their natural environment just steps from your door. The lanai is an excellent place to kick back and keep tabs on the more adventurous members of your party who are snorkeling, surfing or body-boarding. Two world-class surf breaks are right in front of your lanai. Take a surf lesson 50 yards away or kick back and watch more experienced surfers tear it up. Zoom into a satellite photo of this special place by clicking the 'location' or 'map' tab and select 'satellite view' to study the details. This particular spot, in the corner of the resort, offers a rare blend of privacy and natural tranquility while simultaneously placing you right in the thick of the most popular beaches on the South Shore of Kauai. The only downside is you might not want to leave your lanai!
As members of the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, our guests have complimentary membership for the duration of their stay.

Don't bother packing rackets, paddles and balls because all equipment is provided at no charge. For more details there is a link to the Club's Website near the end of this listing.

Poipu is the most desirable vacation district on the Island of Kauai and Kiahuna 1 is centrally located within walking distance of shopping and the most popular restaurants, bars and beaches. Check out our satellite map and zoom in for precise location. Because it honestly doesn't get any better than this.
Year Purchased: 1974
About: Our family has over 40 years of wonderful vacation memories at Kiahuna #1 and now, for the first time ever (2015), we are offering it to the public. It has a unique and private location on the beach at the corner of Kiahuna Plantation Resort. It's views, and it's favorable orientation to ocean breezes makes it a one of a kind place to enjoy your stay to the fullest. Owners, Oscar and Lois Sandberg have permitted me, their daughter Kristin, to advertise this special property for your enjoyment. Feel free to call to inquire about short notice rentals - I may be able to offer a discount for short notice and calendar fill-in dates.
Why Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
Our family purchased Kiahuna Unit #1 in 1974 in the desirable Phase 1 of the Resort. At the time there were a number of beach front units available, but none had this premier location, so close to the water and yet so private and surrounded by greenery. It's single-story construction and vaulted ceilings create a spacious, airy feel to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Fall asleep each night to the rhythmic and relaxing white noise of ocean surf in natural stereo. We think you'll agree, there is no better place to be. You will not be trapped in a hotel box or surrounded by condo balconies peering down on you while staying at Kiahuna 1. Our daily rate includes everything except for the $120 check-out cleaning and the Hawaiian Accommodations/sales taxes unless you book Kiahuna 1 through the VRBO/HA websites as they have recently added a booking fee which will show up on your detailed price quote. Five day rentals include mid-stay towel and trash service while seven day rentals include one mid-week maid service with fresh linens and light house cleaning (in addition to towel/trash services). With the full kitchen, in unit laundry, free parking, regular maid service, endless clean beach towels, a very comfortable King sized bed surrounded by pleasant sounds and breezes, and a private lanai with side yard surrounded by tropical vegetation all right in front of one of the most desirable beaches in the world, this unit provides a lot of value. The Poipu Beach Athletic Club facilities and equipment are included at no extra charge to our guests, however, fitness classes, poolside food and drink, long-distance calls, and beach equipment rentals are available from third parties for an additional cost. We hope you would show your appreciation for our hardworking housekeeping staff by leaving them a tip at the end of your stay to brighten their day.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Kiahuna 1 is situated on one of the most aesthetically pleasing sections of one of the nicest and most versatile beaches in Hawaii. It's unusual to find a place to stay this close to such an amazing beach. There is a shallow shoal directly in front of the lanai that causes more beach sand to deposit in front of Kiahuna 1. The waves wash over the shoal creating a very relaxing 'white noise' that will lull you to sleep. 'Kiahuna' is Hawaiian for 'special place' and Kiahuna 1 has the location to insure your vacation will be as special as possible.
