About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Aloha, and welcome to Kiahuna Plantation Resort, located on a beautiful beach in sunny Poipu on the southern tip of Kauai. The resort features plantation-style low-rise buildings, set among 35 acres of exquisitely maintained lawns and tropical flower gardens. Meandering paths throughout the property lead you to the magnificent swimming beach of your dreams. The warm, turquoise water and the crescent-shaped beach is protected by a reef. It is consistently rated one of the best and cleanest beaches in the world. It is a great place to swim and snorkel as well as learn to surf, boogie board, or just relax.

Our garden view island home, unit #412, in Bldg. 40 is a one bedroom, one bath, non-smoking condominium with free WiFi. We have just updated our condo with many new pieces of contemporary island style furniture. We think you will be pleased. The condo has a living room, dining area, a nice tiled lanai with a garden view. The kitchen has all the amenities needed to prepare full meals. Building #40 is on the eastern side of the resort and only a five minute walk to the beach through the beautiful Kiahuna grounds. This is a very desirable second floor (walk up ten stairs - there are no elevators) end unit with extra windows in the kitchen and bedroom. You will appreciate the extra windows in this condo. They provide greater ventilation and natural light for an open and airy tropical experience. There are no air conditioners or heaters; only ceiling fans are needed at Kiahuna, since the trade winds do a great job at keeping guests comfortable. The interior is furnished island-style and has plantation shutters, and floors with berber carpeting and tile. The spacious lanai overlooks the garden trees and sky - a great view of the clouds at sunset. There are four chairs and a table for your dining pleasure, along with two chaise lounge chairs for relaxing and viewing the stars.

Kiahuna Plantation is conveniently located across the street from Kiahuna Golf Course. Walk across the road to the Swim and Tennis Club and enjoy complementary use of the pool, spa (towels are provided), and tennis facilities. The kids will enjoy the water slide and baby beach. Poipu Shopping Village is an easy stroll from the condo and features restaurants (Keoke's Paradise Grill, Bangkok Happy Bowl, and Puka Dogs) and galleries. The Plantation Gardens Restaurant is on-site and offers wonderful dining, prepared by an award-winning chef.

So come, bring your bathing suit, flip flops, and your aloha wear and you will have all that is needed for a romantic or family dream vacation.

Our condo is managed by on site manager, Roy Thompson, Castle Resorts

and Hotels. 808 742 2200.

About Cathy Decker

Hello Kiahuna lovers. Bruce and I both have art backgrounds. Bruce worked in the Art Dept. at Cal State University, San Bernardino, for 34 years. Cathy, an Ohio State Buckeye, is a retired high school and middle school art teacher. We are happily retired and love traveling to Kauai and the Kiahuna, every chance we get.

Cathy Decker purchased this condo in 2005

Why Cathy Decker chose Poipu

In 2004, we were staying at another condo complex in Poipu. We got lost and turned into the Kiahuna Plantation parking lot to turn around. It was love at first sight! The gorgeous grounds and the beautiful plantation style buildings took our breath away. We bought our condo the next year.

What makes this condo unique

Staying at the Kiahuna gives you a taste of true aloha and what you want to experience on a tropical island. The smell of the flowers, the rain hitting the leaves, the bird sounds. You just can't experience true Kauai in a hotel room like the Hyatt. Love, love, love the Kiahuna.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Cathy and Bruce.

I just wanted to say thank you, we enjoyed your condo in Kauai.

It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

I enjoyed playing the island music there too!

All went well, and we'll look forward to coming back and enjoying your condo in the future!

I will forward your email to others who have asked about a good place to stay.

Thanks again!

Tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean condo. The easy opening blinds on all the windows allow the cool ocean air to run through the condo and make it feel very cool and island-y. Very quiet location. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach where you can free towel and chair rentals. Beautiful manicured lawn overlooking the beach, great to sit during the day or at sunset. Access to the pool at the athletic club across the street which has a nice happy hour. Free parking. Walking distance to multiple restaurants and small grocery store. Large, secluded balcony. We loved our stay during our honeymoon.

Beautiful unit on a beautiful property

Very comfortable and fully furnished with everything needed for a great Poipu vacation. A long walk to the ocean.... but a very short drive.

Perfect location on Poipu Beach.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this unit. It was clean and had everything we needed for our week stay in Kauai. While it does not have a view of the ocean it has a private feel on the lanai overlooking the lawn and the tree cover hides the parking area of the hotel below this unit. We’ve rented a lot of VRBO unites over the years so it’s about what we expected from the pictures that are on the website.

The one criticism we have is that when housekeeping did the mid week cleaning the sheets they put on the bed were not good quality cotton. They almost felt like plastic and were too small for the bed. Now imagine trying to sleep on that with no air conditioning. Not very pleasant.

We would still rent this unit again if it was less than a week stay. Any longer than that we’d consider somewhere with air conditioning instead.

Owner's Response: Aloha Roxann, Sorry about the hot October....wish I could control those beloved trade winds. Since non of the beach houses at the Kiahuna have air conditioning, we do have to rely on our ceiling fans. I sent your letter to housekeeping regarding the sheets to try and figure out what happened on the bed. I have never experienced anything like that because the Kiahuna prides itself on their high quality sheets and towels. It sounds like you slept on what is usually under the mattress cover. I wish you would have complained to them immediately as there is no excuse for what happened. I do apologize for this situation. I am glad you enjoyed our condo otherwise. Mahalo, Cathy

Good location and well maintained

Had a wonderful time, but lack of A/C on warm days was an issue. Would usually cool off at night.

Too noisey and hot

Owner's Response: Aloha Mike, We are glad you enjoyed our comfy bed and our well stocked kitchen. We take pride in supplying the best for our guests. I am sorry to hear you had issues with your stay. Sometimes the trade winds die in late Sept. and Oct.. None of the Kiahuna condos have air conditioners. Unfortunately we have no control over the few concerts that are across the street. Usually they are over by 11pm. Cathy and Bruce
