About the property

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

Kiahuna 63 is a newly-remodeled, upper-floor, end-unit in Building 11 of Kiahuna Plantation Resort. Let me tell you what makes our unit so special, and then more about the property itself.

Location matters!!! With ~335 condos at Kiahuna Plantation Resort, some units are located on the beach . . . the ocean is right there but it can be crowded at the beach and this can cut into your privacy. Then some units are away from the beach next to the road where you'll definitely hear cars . . . and some find this too noisy. Our unit, is located in the heart of Kiahuna Plantation Resort in an area called the "horseshoe" because of the way the buildings have been laid out. This part of the resort is always in high demand, because the units are quiet, close to the beach but still affordable.

Our specific unit is a second-floor, end-unit, which means there are more windows to leave open and enjoy the breeze . . . and you don't have to worry about closing every window when you want to go to the beach . . . just leave and the condo remains nice and pleasant while you're gone. Our unit is a one-bedroom non-smoking condo that sleeps 4 and is fully outfitted for all your needs.

The condition of your unit matters too!!! Kiahuna Plantation Resort was built more than 40 years ago across 35 acres, and while the resort grounds are beautiful . . . many individual units have been minimally updated over the years, and it shows as soon as you walk in. To that end, we completely remodeled our unit in the fall of 2017. We opened up the kitchen area . . . not only modernize it with new cabinets, counters and appliances, but we also wanted to brighten up the unit and open up the kitchen to allow those in the kitchen to feel connected to those in the living and dining room. We also re-designed the bathroom so now there’s a very large walk-in shower to rinse off after your stay at the beach. All new furniture . . . nothing was spared to ensure the beauty of Kiahuna Plantation Resort was matched inside out unit as well.

Lastly, you’re vacationing in a tropical paradise . . . so we took care to make sure the unit and its furnishings feel like you’re staying on a tropical plantation and not some sterile hotel room.

Kiahuna Plantation Resort was developed more than 40 years ago when there were virtually no vacation properties on the sunny south side of Kauai. The property is located on Poipu Beach, which Travel Channel called one of the best 10 beaches in the world . . . for three straight years. The resort was designed to have the laid-back feel of an old tropical plantation, with all low-rise buildings which are spread out across 35 acres of grounds.

The Poipu Beach Athletic Club is just across the road, and our guests have full access to the pool, workout room and tennis courts.

Please look over our pictures to get a sense of our unit, Kiahuna and Kauai. We just finished the remodel in December 2017, and will return in May 2018 to update all the pictures. If you’d like to stay in our unit, please check the calendar and if the dates are available we’d love to have you stay.

We loved out stay at Kiahuna Plantation.....suite 63 was absolutely top notch!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Ken for being a conscientious owner keeping us informed about the renovation to unit 63. The suite is beautifully decorated, from the new kitchen cabinets and appliances, to the luxurious king size bed, to the spa like bathroom. We appreciated everything about staying in your breathtaking suite! Until next time......Mahalo.

Owner's Response: Thanks Pam - You were our very first guests after completing a complete remodel so we were a little nervous that some things might be a little off with the unit, BUT we're so happy the stay went well and you liked the unit. We look forward to going back ourselves in May as we need to update the website photos which don't do the unit justice - our contractor did an amazing job. Likewise, we look forward to your returning as well well as you will always be welcome at Kiahuna 63. Mahalo, Ken

Great Location In Poipu

  • 4 of 5

We are a late 50's active couple (went on Outfitter's Kauai Adreneline ZipLine yesterday - check it out... and come to Kauai each year. This year we thought we would split it up and stay a week on south shore and a week on north shore. This unit is in a perfect location within easy walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars, Poipu State Park, shopping, etc. The Plantation staff maintain excellent care of the landscape and facilities.The end unit is on the second floor and really helps in obtaining a cross breeze to keep the place cool. The unit is clean and well maintained for being a rental in the tropics. Would highly recommend to a friend and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Victor. Since you left, we've started a major remodel and we'd welcome you back as our island home will be even nicer than before. Mahalo, Ken

Review of our stay

  • 4 of 5

We were taken off guard by the fee for full cleaning and also the check out cleaning fee. We have stayed at the Plantation several times and don't remember that being added on.

Our son stayed in a unit managed by Outrigger and they were charged nothing for cleaning. We have dealt with Outrigger before and appreciated their fees and treatment.

We did appreciate the daily paper service.

The support and cleaning staff were very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Laurence - We were surprised to read your review about the fees and we investigated this only to discover that you are 100% right as the cleaning fees which are paid to the property manager (and not us) were not made known to you before you booked your reservation . . . this is not right, so WE'D LIKE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO REFUND YOU THE CLEANING FEES. All units at Kiahuna are owned by individual owners, so the handling of these cleaning fees will vary unit by unit. Some owners include the cleaning fees in nightly rental rate, and others like ourselves charge the cleaning fees separately. We've updated our listing to make sure the cleaning fees are disclosed up front to avoid this issue in the future. I appreciate that it makes renting directly a little more complicated, and we're sorry for the experience and hope that the remainder of your vacation was a pleasant one. Mahalo, Ken

Great corner unit

  • 4 of 5

This second floor corner unit was peaceful and private. We loved the sweeping garden view and with a short walk to the beach you can visit the ocean at any time. While the kitchen was a little dated it was nicely equipped and the furniture comfortable.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at unit 63 for 5 days. We had a wonderful stay, Kiahuna Plantation is very well cared for and beautiful. The location made it convenient for our day trips, the south side of Kauai is gorgeous. All of Kauai is gorgeous. I found cooking there to be somewhat of a challenge, simple things like knives need sharpening, the top of the lid of a saucepan fell off, all small things really. I do enjoy cooking some meals in as food is very expensive on the island. There were no spices to speak of, but again, just small stuff. All in all, we had a great time and enjoyed our visit. The staff at Kiahuna plantation is very accommodating. I would go back, no doubt. It would be nice to turn the roosters off at 6:00 am!

Owner's Response: We're very happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay, as that it the ultimate goal. With respect to the "small stuff", we especially appreciate the feedback as we always want to make everyone's stay more enjoyable. Unfortunately, some things are not possible as the management clears out all food products meaning things like spices are taken out as well. We understand why they do this, but would agree with you that it would be nice for these things to be avaialble w/o having to buy a brand new spice jar with every new guest. Believe me, we get it :-) About the roosters, they're part of the Kauai "charm" and thankfully the management company actively works to capture and release the roosters off-site. Thanks again and we look forward to your return.
