About the Property

Best Location!

Aloha! Kiahuna Unit #1 offers the ideal beachfront location. No one above you; no one below you. Just surf sounds, ocean breezes and sandy beaches, sunning, sipping cocktails on your lanai while watching whales, waves and sunsets. This end unit has a remarkable location in the most private corner of the resort and is ideally situated to provide a peaceful sleep and take maximum advantage of the ocean breezes. The spacious bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a very comfortable King-sized bed and ample closet space. The living room has high, vaulted ceilings for an airy, spacious feel and a Bose Soundtouch music system to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. You can also select one of the CD's containing steel guitars and other authentic Hawaiian music to get you in the aloha spirit. All the amenities of home with a fully equipped kitchen for beachfront dining on your private lanai or the indoor dining table. An automatic ice-maker creates an endless stream of fresh ice cubes. A front-loading laundry set is located in-unit for your convenience and there is a large Smart TV, Blu-ray DVD player and wireless Internet in the living room media cabinet. Two stainless steel BBQ's with infra-red element, are less than 100 steps away and maintained daily. Flame broil a Hawaiian grass fed steak from one of the local farmers markets or some locally caught seafood to enjoy while you watch the sunset on your lanai. There are numerous excellent restaurants and bars within easy walking distance but somehow the lanai is the most popular option. An oceanfront boardwalk begins just east of your lanai and offers an easy stroll in front of Koa Kea and Marriot's Waiohai Beach Club resorts to the nearby Poipu Beach State Park.


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. Access the newly upgraded facilities including an outdoor pool with slide and sandy beach surrounded by tropical vegetation and lounge chairs , four new USTA tennis courts and an automatic ball serving machine, two shuffle board courts, two basketball half courts with adjustable rim height for all ages, three pickle ball courts, modern weight and fitness equipment as well as a large, grassy recreation area perfect for a quick game of bocci ball, croquet or Frisbee. 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.

Castle Resorts is on-site and provides housecleaning services, check-in and check-out services, resort security and offers a 24/7 days week front desk services to guests of Kiahuna 1. Our guests receive a complimentary local morning newspaper and regular maid service at no extra charge.

Unit #1 is the end unit of the single story Building #1 (Phase 1) in the most private corner of Kiahuna Plantation Resort yet is conveniently located to check-in/check-out desk and parking.

Manager info

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.
