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

Loved our stay at this condo. The property itself it gorgeous and our condo had a lovely view of the lush green grounds and the ocean in front. It is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owner Bill and his daughter Karen were wonderful and very helpful. Loved our morning walks to the sandy beach in front of the property and loved sitting in the lanai watching the sunset every evening. We had a lovely time and hope to be back someday!

Wonderful ocean view property.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short, but lovely stay in Unit 177. It is very comfortable and overlooks the beautiful well kept grounds as well as the ocean. The owners were very nice to deal with and very accommodating. We will definitely be back.

This superb condo makes every visit that much more wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in the past four years to stay in this particular condo at Kiahuna Plantation. Whenever we can make our schedule sync with its availability, this condo is always the one we want. It is up-to-date. Very nicely appointed. Truly "five star" accommodations!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Kiahuna and this condo in particular. This was our first time to this island and to Kiahuna and I thought this was one of the best overall properties that I saw on the island. We much prefer staying in a condo to a hotel (we actually stayed next door at the Sheraton the fist 2 nights because this condo was not available) because of the flexibility of a kitchen etc. Instead of booking straight to Outrigger I wanted to find the perfect condo and this one was it. We had a chance to go in 3 other condo's while we were there and the view and remodel in this condo made it a much better experience. The grounds are beautiful as well. Bill and Karen both made the experience easy to book etc. I high recommend this condo - although it may make it tougher for us to book in the future with more competition :).

Perfect Hawaiian Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the Kiahuna Plantation and will definitely not be our last!

I usually stay with my parents in their time share next door at Marriott's Waiohai Beach Club, but since my boyfriend was traveling along with me this time around to Kauai, we wanted our own set up and privacy!

We LOVED the remodeling job the owners did - a touch of new but also still a very Hawaiian, tropical-feel to the place. Amazing views, perfect kitchen, spacious bathroom, comfortable sleep, right amount of entertainment & short walks to just about everywhere - the beach, shopping & restaurants across the street! We could not get enough of this place! We cannot wait to come back and eventually bring our future children some day! Love that it's a property for all ages!

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!
