About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This wonderful ocean-view condominium is perfect for romantic getaways or fun-filled family vacations. It is located just steps from the beach in the popular Kiahuna Plantation Resort in Poipu Beach on the south shore of Kauai. Spend your days sunning on the grassy lawn, building sand castles on the beach, reading your favorite book or splashing in the warm Hawaiian waters. At night enjoy quiet walks along the beach, beautiful sunsets, local shopping and dining, or a family BBQ next to the lagoon. This is the special Hawaiian vacation you have always dreamed of.

This corner unit (#177) has one bedroom, one bathroom and is on the upper level of a two-story building. With an open floor plan, the trade winds keep you cool during the day and lull you to sleep at night. The living room couch serves as a queen-sized hide-a-bed perfect for kids or guests. The lanai is an ideal spot for morning coffee, checking email (Free secured WiFi in unit), watching the waves, working on your suntan or just enjoying a beautiful sunset.

Kiahuna Plantation is an authentic Hawaiian retreat and boasts one of Kauai's most beautiful beaches. The resort is surrounded by 35 acres of lush gardens and flower-lined walkways. There are also 10 nearby golf courses, hiking, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, and surfing for the guests who wish to be active.

this unit was fully remodeled and upgraded in the Fall of 2014

About Karen McDade Adams

We have always lived in proximity to the ocean. First in Seattle, Washington and now for some 40 years in San Diego, California. Salt air and ocean breezes have been a part of our entire life and our children and grandchildren have embraced this love also.

We never tire of visiting Kauai and making 'first tracks' on the sandy beach in the morning, playing games with our family on the front lawn and swimming in the warm Hawaiian waters. Evenings are just as special as we watch the sunset from the lawn and beach with a special beverage or while eating by candlelight on our lanai as the moon beams shine on the neighboring palm trees.

Kiahuna means 'special place' and we think our unit will become a special place for you and your family too.

Karen McDade Adams purchased this condo in 1980

Why Karen McDade Adams chose South Shore

We first visited Poipu Beach, Kauai in the 1960s and fell in love with the beauty of the Island and the wonderful safe beaches for our children to play on and swim and most of all the relaxing family atmosphere that permeates throughout the Kiahuna Plantation. It has the beauty and ambience of 'old Hawaii', safe beaches and a relaxing family atmosphere unlike any place we had ever visited.

We purchased our unit #177 in 1980 and have been returning ever since with our children and now our grandchildren. We have celebrated many special family birthdays and weddings in this very special place.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is an upstairs, corner unit cooled by the ever present trade winds, and fronts the large expanse of lawn just behind the beach. It has a full ocean view through the palm trees and is only 50 yards to the sandy beach. It is within walking distance to several restaurants and shops and the swimming pool and tennis court facilities.

Kiahuna is located on the South shore of Kauai on Poipu Beach. This side of the island has more sunshine and warm days than other parts of the Island. In fact the locals always say, 'It's always sunny on the South side!'

Poipu Beach consists of some 5 separate coves of beach each suited to different forms of water activity including body surfing and boogie boarding, snorkeling, and quiet shallow water for small children. The cove in front of Kiahuna Plantation is the largest and is great for swimming, snorkeling, jumping the waves and taking surfing lessons. Of course you can also just sit on the beach with a good book and work on your tan! There is something for everyone here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a short note about our stay in your KP #177.

Wanted to let you know that we had a very pleasant and comfortable stay in the unit.

It has been a several years since we last stayed in #177 and it felt good to return to a familiar unit.

Your recent re-model was well done and that coupled with 177’s ocean view as well as Kiahuna's premier beach location made our stay most enjoyable.

My wife, Doreen, says that after staying in about a third of the units over the years, 177 is her all time favorite so now I must plan around it’s future availability.

I think that’s is going to be a tough job as 177’s is now a prime rental.

Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise with us. To paraphrase Arnold Swartzenegger, “We’ll be baack!”

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Plantation Gardens many times in the past and more than once in this unit. It has a perfect location with a beautiful ocean view. Trades keep you nice and cool and we enjoyed cooking breakfast and eating out on the Lanai in the morning then drinks in the afternoon before dinner. This is a beautifully upgraded property with nice furniture, comfortable bed and one of the nicest bathrooms of any property in the Plantation group. The Poipu area has amazing restaurants close by and the beach in front of the property has swimming snorkeling and for us surfers a perfect break just to the left of the condo property over a beautiful reef. The kitchen is fully stocked if you wish to cook in with a newly remodeled kitchen and nice pans ect to cook with. We have traveled to all the Islands and this area is one of our favorites. We will be back again in the future!

The Best, in so many ways.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location if you are looking for the beauty of Kauai in a traditional setting. This unit has all the modern amenities, a beautiful ocean view, and the quiet calm not found in many of the "new" condo developments.

You are just steps away from the finest beaches on the South shore, and after you view the beautiful sunsets, you are minutes away from both casual and first class restaurants. The most comfortable and enjoyable of these is The Plantation Garden, a five minute stroll on property.

Owners are very easy to work with, and have kept their family condo up to date with the recent remodel.

We have enjoyed four visits to this unit, and look forward to returning. We have visited all the Islands over the years, and the South Shore of Kauai is our favorite.

Very lovely unit

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation last year in a different unit and had to return we love the Plantation so much. All the reviews are correct, lovely corner unit, killer view, nicely updated and comfortable. Beautiful grounds and the beach steps away. This unit is truly a great find. However, there are a few negatives that I do need to mention to be fair to potential renters. This unit has two other buildings directly behind, our bedroom window is approx. 20 feet from another unit's lanai. This can get noisy in the evening. Also, the Sheridain resort is approx. 500 ft behind the Kiahuna Plantation, they put on a Bi-weekly outdoor Lu au that gets really loud around 8:00 at night, so beware of this. Also the king bed is not the best. But other then that this unit is great. We loved the sunset dinner offered by the Keoki's restaurant withing walking distance,

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and comment regarding our King mattress. We always appreciate constructive feedback and ways that we can improve our unit. As it turns out, we have already ordered a new mattress and it will be arriving in May. We apologize that it was not comfortable for you and the new mattress was not there for your stay. We also wanted to comment briefly on the close proximity of neighbors. It is true, that occasionally you will hear your neighbors ( & the roosters). There are times that neighbors are not always courteous and will be extra loud , but generally the nature of Kiahuna is quiet & peacful. I believe most guests adhere to this. As you will read from our previous reviews, most guests do not find this to be a problem. Regarding the Sheraton's Luau...yes, there is a Luau twice/week, but we have never noticed the noise to be bothersome. There is a farily strict noice policy on Kauai, so I do not believe it goes late into the evening. Kiahuna is not an "air conditioned" property, so windows are generally open to allow for the tropical breezes to come through, As the original owners of this unit, we still truly believe there is not a better location to be while staying at Kiahuna!

The location was perfect, the unit was immaculate and comfortable. So relaxing and sublimely beautiful! I loved hearing the ocean break at night. My only wish is that we had more time to enjoy this beautiful spot and beautiful condo. Thank you so much!

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Kiahuna. This unit is perfect in every way. Appointments were everything we expected and the location is the best - view is spectacular and ocean 100 yards away. Open up the windows and listen to the ocean and let the trade winds cool the unit! We will be back🌴🌴🌴
