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, ceiling fan cooled buildings (no air conditioning at the Kiahuna Plantation due to louvered windows), 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 usually 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. 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!

Our stay at Decker condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nicely appointed and had a lovely lanai, which we enjoyed each morning. We also enjoyed the access to the beach(although it was often quit crowded) and the pool, as my granddaughter was staying with her family nearby. The one downside was the very noisy road traffic in the early morning hours.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kathy, Thank you for taking the time to review our condo. I am glad you found our vacation home well appointed and we agree, the lanai is a great place to eat breakfast. Mahalo, Cathy and Bruce

Nice overall

Nice art and furniture... some wood molding near windows. Sliding wood doors need replacing and the screens are getting old.

Over nice though.

Owner's Response: Dr. N, I am shocked at your review. If you would have read my description of our condo, you would have seen there is no AC in any of the condos at the Kiahuna. Yes, you would have had to spend twice as much at the nearby hotels, but you chose not to do that. Most of our furniture is 2 - 3 years old and we have never had any complaints about the comfort or decor. I believe our pictures are very true to what is there. Yes, the bathroom isn’t fancy, it does not have a granite countertop, but it is functional. If you wanted an ocean view, you should have spent more money for a higher category. My suggestion to you, is that you spend more time researching your next property before booking.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The suite is fully equipped with a beautiful lanai. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. The bed is extremely comfortable and my partner and I just loved every minute. If you open the front and back shutters, there is a wonderful breeze that goes through the whole place. Kiahuna Plantation is beautiful and is also walking distance to one of the best beaches around. We rented a car, but there is so much within walking distance (great restaurants and shopping). We look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane. Bruce and I are so happy you enjoyed our condo and the beautiful lanai. That bed is comfy...I wish I had it at my home in California. We hope you return soon.

Clean, well stocked condo.

Not very close to beach on property or laundry facilities so that is why we gave 4. Good parking and nice area of island. Wish pool was on property.
