About the property

Lovely 1 bd at Kiahuna Plantation-short walk to awesome Poipu beaches

**Free mid-size car while cars are available. Not valid with any other special offers. Car can be upgraded for minimal fee. Includes Lihue airport pick up and drop off, unlimited mileage and taxes.

This newly renovated, intimate retreat for two is the perfect way to experience some island serenity while still being close to lively resort amenities. A quiet, ground-floor condo located in the plantation horseshoe, you’ll be just a two-minute walk to sand and surf, with a vast expanse of lush green space as your backyard.

New ceramic flooring and updated furnishings throughout will make you feel right at home, with ceiling fans and tropical breezes to keep you cool and comfortable. Enjoy peaceful views of plantation bridges in the afternoon shade of your private lanai. At dinnertime, grill beneath the stars on the lawn on one of the 11 communal gas BBQs, or walk to one of the many great restaurants at nearby Poipu Shopping Village and catch a live Hula show while you’re at it.

Retreat to the sanctuary of a comfy king-size bed in the quiet bedroom at the end of the day, or cuddle up on the couch for a movie on the flat-screen cable TV. Feel the breeze on your face as your sip morning coffee from a lounge chair, and when you’re ready for breakfast, a fully equipped kitchen and dining table for four will help you fuel up for the sun-filled adventures ahead.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

About Owner/Manager


Thank you for viewing our properties! Great Vacation Retreats is a boutique family run vacation rental company located on the beautiful island of Kauai! We have been managing properties on the Garden Isle and Kona since 2009. It can be overwhelming trying to pick out the right property -- we can help. Someone from our office is available almost 24 hours/day to answer your questions and help you find the perfect place to call home during your tropical getaway. We take great pride in the properties we manage and believe that we truly have some of the best properties the island has to offer. We have been in each property numerous times and stayed in most so that we can give you an accurate description of what each property's amenities are, distances to the beach, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We can also help you with any activities you might be interested in while on island such as surfing lessons, private boat charters, guided hikes, stand up paddling, personal chef, childcare and much more!

Mahalo for looking :)

Why Owner/Manager chose Poipu

1. The Perks: Not only does Kiahuna 150 come with a membership to Poipu Beach Athletic Club, but a free midsize car rental for exploring the island too!

2. Fantastic Location: Walk to snorkeling, surfing, and sunsets at Poipu Beach, browse galleries and boutiques at Poipu Shopping Village, and unwind in the hot tub at Poipu Beach Athletic Club - all just a few minutes from your unit.

3. A Rare Gem: Along with Kiahuna 150 being one of the more private rentals, Kiahuna Plantation itself is a unique retreat. Not only does it have a rich history dating back to Hawaii’s sugar plantation days, but is one of the few properties in Kauai to front an award-winning beach.

What makes this condo unique

Start your day off with a latte from local favorite Little Fish Coffee, then pop into a few boutiques for an island souvenir at Poipu Shopping Village. From there, the world is your oyster.

Stroll through famous Moir Gardens, home to rare orchids and cacti, or grab a towel and some sunscreen and make the short 3-minute walk down to award-winning Poipu Beach for paddle boarding, swimming, snorkeling, or sunbathing. Depending on the season, you may even spot some breaching whales. Once you’ve soaked up enough rays, head to Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar for a handcrafted cocktail and some regional Pacific Rim cuisine while watching the sun sink into the ocean.

If you’re looking for a resort-style stay, we have you covered. You'll receive complimentary access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, home to a fitness center, hot tub and sparkling pool with a waterslide and sand-bottomed kiddie section – everything you need to work out, cool off or wind down, just across the street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Helpful with directions and assistance when checking in.

We were mailed the keys to the unit, but because we were travelling prior to our arrival in Hawaii they were not sent in time. I would recommend that visitors be asked what day they are leaving their homes so the keys can be mailed in time.

There was confusion when arriving on the property. I had forgotten my directions at home, and the signs posted in the parking lot about "Castle" and "Outrigger" properties got us turned around. I couldn't recall seeing this type of labeling any of the materials I was sent, so was unsure which side we were on. When I asked the representative about this she seemed to be unsure what I was talking about. In either event, had I remembered the directions this likely wouldn't have been an issue.

The sheets on the bed clearly had dried blood on them, which had attempts at being washed. We removed them and did not use them during our stay.

Cooking pans in the kitchen would be helpful, we could only find pots.


Mahalo for your review! We are trying to work with a better key system for Kiahuna and in the meantime we have installed an after hours box at our office for situations such as yours. Hopefully that will eliminate and stress if you should not remember keys when you are traveling. We are sorry about the bedding. The red dirt on Kauai is often confused for blood and stains very badly on our white sheets. With that being said, we should have noticed that prior to your arrival and would have loved to replace them right away for you. We are going to go thru the kitchen to make sure that it is adequately stocked.

Thanks again for your review. We strive to make our guest experience exceptional and feedback like this helps us achieve that goal.

Hopefully we will see you again soon!

Great Location; Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. There were lots of nearby restaurants, some within walking distance. It was nice having the kitchen although we really only used it for breakfast. The overhead fans kept the condo cool, and the wi-fi was great. Would definitely stay here again.
