Kiahuna Plantation is a beautiful resort located on Poipu Beach, which happens to be the sunny side of the island.

Our unit is #120 located on the second floor of Building #18.

From our lanai(balcony) you are able to you look out over the heart of the tropical garden with a view of the ocean beyond.

We are sure you will enjoy our condo which has recently been renovated. A lot of care has been taken to make it aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. A home away from home!

Our condo is a three minute stroll to the beach where the warm, calm, blue water awaits you. You can safely snorkel, swim or surf all in very close proximity to one another. Or, you can relax on the wonderfully soft sands watching the surf. You don’t even have to carry equipment to the beach! Towels and lounging chairs are provided for free and you can rent any water equipment at the beach hut.

The peacefulness of Kiahuna’s setting on 36 acres with its expansive lawns punctuated by beautiful tropical flowers, palm trees, and colorful birds make it a wonderful place to relax, have fun, and just be. While you are there, you might want to stroll to the Orchid and Lily Pond Gardens where you'll be delighted by the ecstatic beauty.

The incredible sunsets by the beach and the stars at night are not to be missed.A nearby, secluded, shopping area serves most of your needs.

If you feel like venturing out, Kiahuna is a place from which to explore the beautiful island of Kauai. There are so many treasures to experience.....

About Eva Tomlinson

We are two retired people living in San Francisco who love to spend time in Kauai. We have been coming to Kauai since 1982. We love the Kiahuna Resort because it has such a great beach and so assessable from our condo. We are very much into the outdoors we spend a lot of time hiking and swimming Our kids love coming and now they are bringing there own kids. We love sharing our condo with our friends. We feel very lucky that we were able to buy this great condo in 2006 after renting at the Kiahuna for so many years. We are very pleased when our guests love it as much as we do.

Eva Tomlinson purchased this condo in 2008

What makes this condo unique

We love the view from our Lanai.

Not being in ground floor affords us so much privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay! We were on the island of Kauai during the month of December and this location was the perfect area of choice. Working with Eva was seamless from start to finish with a quick rate of response. The condo is open and airy with a wonderful balcony overlooking carefully landscaped grounds. The ocean is visible and access to the beach is a quick and easy walk. Though we didn't cook more than breakfast in the unit, it appeared fully stocked with all the equipment you would need to complete the task. There are also outside grills right near the unit for public use. Within walking distance there are a number of restaurants, shops, markets, music venues, and hiking trails. In fact, the most scenic trail of our trip was accessed directly from the unit. The resort staff was more than accommodating in meeting any need that arose. Additionally, the location is the perfect base when visiting the rest of the island. Thanks Eva, and we would totally stay here again!

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as described with close parking. It was very clean and a short walk to the beach. The beach was beautiful, plenty of chairs to go around. I knew the condo did not have air-conditioning when I booked, but after staying in July (very hot and humid) I would only book this condo at a cooler time of the year. I would suggest bringing additional towels as the management company only provides each guest 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 wash clothe every 3 days. We had a great time and my daughter was able to surf right off the beach.

This was a very nice and convenient place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This condo fit our needs perfectly. It gave us a nice homebase from which we could walk to eat out, go to nearby beaches and restaurants easily and it also had it's own wonderful beach. A little ocean view was nice and the lanei was fairly private considering we looked out onto a big lawn.

Lovely Kauai at a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This Condo and the Kiahuna Plantation itself is a perfect place to enjoy the most beautiful of all Hawaiian islands - Kauai!

It is perfectly located in terms of distance to all the must-see's on Kauai, and Poipu Beach (a 3 minutes walk from the Condo) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Kauai.

The Condo: a spacious living room with fully equipped kitchen, extra bedroom with king size bed, a bathroom, and a very large lanai with (partial) sea view and comfortable sitting. We had there all we needed and really enjoyed our stay. It felt like being home after a few hotel stays on the other islands. No A/C (which is very good, from a European perspective), but fans on the ceiling (nice!). Just perfect for two adults and a child (sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room).

Right behind the condo building there is a free parking place.

The plantation and the beach: the plantation is a very well maintained spot with nice greenery. The condo is in walking distance from the beach. You get free towels and beach chairs on the beach. In condo you will find all the necessary swimming and snorkeling equipment.

A smaller shopping mall with restaurants and a supermarket in walking distance just across the street, a bigger one just a 3 minutes drive away.

Thanks again to the owner Eva for letting us stay in the Condo until later afternoon because we had an evening flight back.

Clean, Comfortable and Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this Castle managed Kiahuna Plantation condo unit. It was our first visit to the Poipu area, and we could not have asked for a better location to stay. The complex is near Poipu Beach, Old Koloa Town, Allerton Gardens and a few grocery stories and small shopping malls.

We had access to the beach and a pool both of which were a short walk from the condo unit. The condo itself was clean, homey and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans for extended stays. There are communal gas BBQ grills a few steps from the condo.

The Plantation Gardens restaurant is on the property, and we walked over and enjoyed a delicious dinner there on one of our evenings. There were also several other nice restaurants within a short driving distance. A handful of ice cream and shaved ice places were also nearby that opened late.

We will miss waking to the sound of roosters in the morning!

Comfortable condo in a pretty setting

  • 4 of 5

Location was convieniently located for shopping, restaurants and pool, across the road, which we walked to. Had a peek-aboo view of ocean. The beach in front of the Plantation was the best and a small stroll on the path to it was no big deal. Mostly great sunsets. The condo was comfortable but a little bathroom updating and carpet cleaning would be our only FYI.

Most Amazing and Soothing!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! The incredible lanai view was so hard to turn away from! Lush greenery, peaceful, mellow gardens, exciting birds, near and distant palms, swaying with the breezes. And, the ocean is a wonderful part of the view – not so close that you hear the noises, but close enough that you see and feel the waves and the surf. Comfortably warm outdoors and, due to the breezes that come in from the open front and out through the lanai door, comfortably cool inside!

The condo interior is perfectly fashioned to promote both beauty and comfort. Comfortable furniture placed in a way that you can see the beauty all around you – inside and out. A great TV with all sorts of available channels as well as fast wireless internet access.

All sorts of great beach gear. We used the snorkeling masks and fins, convenient food containers...

Service was great! Cleanliness, organization of kitchen and bath supplies felt very complete and accessible.

The surrounding areas are wonderfully interesting and convenient: Even though you can’t see it from the unit, there is a full shopping center right across the street, including of groceries and all sorts of supplies. And, we loved the live entertainment right next door at the Marriot and the Sheraton. And, all of our questions about what to see where were quickly answered by the Castle front desk.

Again, Thanks!
