About Mary Ventura

We are a family of four originally from the east coast and have been living in the Seattle area since 2002.

Mary Ventura purchased this condo in 2005

Why Mary Ventura chose Poipu

We love the vintage feel of Kiahuna, the sounds of the ocean that we hear from the condo, the smell of the tropical flowers and the amazing grounds and gardens. It is a peaceful, special place that our family has enjoyed coming to every year for over 10 years.

What makes this condo unique

The closeness to the beach! Early morning walks in either direction provide expansive views of the ocean as well as sea turtles swimming in the surf, dolphins and whales (seasonally). The preserved ancient sacred grounds add to the unique feel of this very special island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been the most relaxing Kauai vacation that we've ever experienced. Your little cozy cottage here on the Kiahuna Plantation has, by far, been our favorite place to stay. We were blessed to find you. We are planning on returning in a year and will look at your available dates first! Beach House restaurant was amazing for a special night out with friends and family - yummy! Your lawn is perfect and cool breezes are comfortable.

Kiahuna Plantation Condo - So Close to the Beach!
average rating of 4.611111 based on 118 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This was my 31st trip to the islands and my first stay at Kiahuna Plantation. I was apprehensive about staying at such a large complex but Unit 167 is situated in such a way that it really seems very private. The unit is decorated "island style" and very tastefully done. I'm a beach person and the beach really is a 2 minute walk away. Lanai was great for morning tea or sunset cocktails. Shopping is a short walk across the street. All in all, I'll be back to Mary's great condo. It is definitely a little gem.

Beach Front Kauai

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the plantation. The condo had plenty of room for the 4 of us. Management was iffy. We had a cracked/loose tile at the door when we arrived. Called the desk and maintenance put a bath towel down to cover it rather than fix it. Rather than slip and fall, we removed the towel. Then enter the mouse. We called again and they came the following day, but asked me how many and where I would like to put the traps. It was never caught. The mid week cleaning fee was a surprise, especially for only changing sheets. But the management has nothing to do with the great spot we had.

The patio is fantastic for relaxing! Ocean view, cool breeze, and cocktails. Life is good.

AWESOME family experience on the BEACH!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutly loved our time here at Mary's cottage on the beach. We are already trying to figure out how to get back. The staff are very helpful and generous and the owner, Mary, is very easy going and beyond helpful. If she or the staff can make it happen, they will.

How clean is this place? Very! We like to grill out as a family. Went to use the BBQ on day 2, and it was as shiny as a new one at the store. I thought, man these never get used, boy was I wrong. They get used all the time. However, the next morning during our morning walk the staff were out cleaning it up. Turns out, every morning they are out cleaning up the BBQs. The cottage was not much differnet. Very clean and well kept up.

From the cottage you are about a 30 sec walk to the beach. Not just a beach, but a "family can build sand castles and swim" beach. About a 5 minute walk is the gym and swimming pool area. This was another popular spot for the kids.

I could go on and on, but to sum it all up.....this place was excellent! and exceeded our expectations by far! Thank you Mary, thank you Kiahuna Plantation, thank you VRBO, and Thank you Kauai!!!

A bit a paradise for a fair price

  • 5 of 5

First off we love the Poipu area of Kauai. This condo was perfect for someone who is on a budget but wants the convenience of being close to one of the most beautiful beaches around. We were less then 2 min. walk to the beach and could see a bit of the ocean from the lanei. The sounds of the luau next door at the Sheraton on Monday and Thursday were a nice complement. Yes the beauty of being oceanfront would be better, but that would cost 2 to 3 times the price of this unit. The Condo had all the amenities one would expect. Even boogie boards and sand stuff in the closet. The unit was clean and when we had a problem with the toilet the Castle maintenance was on site within 30 minutes. I guess our only complaint might be that the bathroom could stand an upgrade. The Lanai felt secluded compared to others.. and the barbecues and the Plantation Gardens restaurant are close by.. The Plantation Condos are all located on beautiful grounds, well kept up by the facility . The beach was wonderful with good snorkeling, surfing and just lounging on the large grassy area with lounge chairs supplied by the facility. Over all a very pleasant stay..

Ideal location in the Plantation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Plantation Condo and thoroughly enjoyed both the condo and the location. We had several other family members (including our 18 month old granddaughter) staying close by. The location was incredible-----across from the lagoon, near the grills, a few steps from the lawn and just a few more to the beach. The bed in the condo was very comfortable ( a welcome contrast to the house we rented in Princeville). The condo had the basics for cooking, backed out onto a semi-private lawn that was ideal for play, throwing a football around etc. and the parking was very convenient. We appreciated Mary's responsiveness and consideration.
