About the property

2nd Story End Unit Beach Access Poipu Best Beach Kauai's Only Condo Resort

As Kauai’s only beachfront condominium resort Kiahuna Plantation combines plantation style architecture with lush tropical gardens and a “great lawn” that overlooks world famous Poipu Beach. The stunning shoreline of Poipu Beach lies on Kauai’s sunny south side often making the top ten list of world’s best beaches. Drink your morning coffee alongside a resting monk seal or a swimming sea turtle. Enjoy swimming in the waves while watching the whales breach the water in the distance or feel the warm tropical breezes as you drink in the sunset over the glistening water (with or without rum).

Unit 154/building 23 lies in the heart of Kiahuna Plantation. This second story unit will instantly transport you into relaxation mode. Trade winds blowing through the unit keep it cool in this warm tropical climate and you’ll wake to the sounds of island birds singing and ocean waves breaking. Brew your own coffee and savor the salt air on the lanai or walk beneath the canopies of Monkey Pod and Banyan Trees to purchase your favorite Starbucks brew. Updated with all new furnishings this unit will work well for families, honeymooners or snowbirds. Sleeping up to four people (and maybe a child on a rented aerobed) this one bedroom condo has a king bed and a brand new pull out queen sleeper couch. A complete kitchen is equipped for any level of cooking and the bathroom includes a bathtub and shower. A three minute walk to the ocean this condo is a perfect way to spend time at the beach and run home for drinks and snacks. There are free towels and chairs at the beach for your use.


OR Ask about renting the unit next door for larger groups


There is a $120 exit cleaning fee required that is paid directly to Castle Resorts.

About Karen Mayville

We have been to Kiahuna Plantation six times since 2008 and fell in love with this property the first moment we encountered the plantation style architecture, palm trees swaying on the great lawn overlooking the ocean and of course the world class Poipu Beach. Truly paradise!

Karen Mayville purchased this bungalow in 2015

Good location and value

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this condo for two weeks in April, and the two of us were very comfortable. Owners seem tuned in to needs of their renters. The unit could use some upgrading soon, mainly the shower and bathroom, however this apparently is not uncommon at Kiahina Plantation, and was

not all that bad for a beach bungalow. The unit is fully furnished, with great ambience, a comfy bed, a private deck, no needs kitchen with new stove and fridge, and super spice drawer, use of the beach chairs, extra fans, ice chests, boogie boards and more. The location and the overall good karma of the place are great. Kiahuna is a laid back "old school" experience. It is not posh and is totally without pretense...we would stay there again.

This unit is nicely located. We loved the lanai which gets morning sun and early afternoon sun.

Nice upper end unit with beautiful view of rolling green grassy lawns leading down to beach area. The kitchen and bathroom could use updating. Love Kiahuna Plantation !

Excellent location in the Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

End unit which provides for good air circulation. Faces south mostly which means you don't get the hot afternoon sun. We have stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation a number of times and this is the best location we've had. If you haven't been to Kauai you are missing a piece of paradise. If you're looking for hot night life this isn't the place. Mostly a mature and quiet group of people...lights out by 10! We are returning to this unit in 2018.

very good property in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is located in the Kiahuna Plantation,Kauai can hardly think of a better place to spend a week or two in January. It Is a second story, for some better view from the lanai, for others the

steps may become an issue. To us a challenge only at arrival time with a couple of suitcases, late at night because of airline delay, but a member of the security staff took care of the problem.I am in my 80's and I found the staff very helpful, efficient and always pleasant. The unit itself is tastefully decorated, things work, and if there is an issue maintenance is there.

Is well equipped. Appliances work, they get the job done, but they look kind of rough. The issue really is not whether this is a good value.This is a mature property, many people have enjoyed it and they are back . If it happens to be available,dont take too long.Kauai is just gorgeous.a helicopter ride gave me views will never forget.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

This property was comfortable, had all the appliances & furniture we needed and was in a good location. We enjoyed our stay there, even thought the weather could have been better. Thanks for the availability of beach accessories, they came in handy. The only concerns we had, which are minor for going on a vacation, were that the appliances, kitchen cupboards and bathroom are a bit old and could be upgraded. The drawers in the bathroom and kitchen did not open very easily. But overall, we had a very enjoyable time there.
