About Jed and Lisa Stevens
We have been frequent travelers to Hawaii for many years while balancing full time careers and a busy family life. In order to enjoy Hawaii with our family to the fullest, we had to become experts in how to manage our vacations ~ from tricks with booking airline tickets and navigating the airports, to knowing the perfect places to stay, the best restaurants and unsurpassed local spots, all the way down to what goes into a bag for the perfect beach day! Armed with this knowledge of how to make a great vacation, we combined our history of owning and managing several rental properties and our ability to manage lots of small details amidst chaos (we have 4 very busy children!). The result of that effort is Koloa Kai Vacation Rentals! Using the skills that made us successful in our other careers, we have applied ourselves to the business of making great vacations for others in order to share our passion for the Hawaiian islands and its spirit of aloha. We invite you to browse our properties and list of island favorites, and are grateful for the opportunity to help make your vacation as magical as the islands themselves.

Condo was nice, great location to the beach. There is also a wonderful baby beach with calm waters and tons of fish and sea turtles right around the corner (1 min drive).
Exactly what we needed
This property was located perfectly to tons of shopping, dining and of course... the beach. We loved the access to the athletic club for the pool. It was the perfect way to wrap up the day. Jed was extremely kind and helpful. We did not receive our welcome packet and he made sure to find a quick workaround for us even on the 4th of July holiday. He was also quick to respond to any questions or concerns about we had. We would definitely recommend it!
Welcome Package Confirmation
Our stay was fabulous, the condo was perfect. Our one suggestion would be to send a pre-arrival confirmation of the mailed Welcome packet. Ours never arrived so we had to sort it all out once we got to the Kiahuna.
Loved our stay here. Perfect location & beautiful grounds. Good communication with manager. Would stay here again!
This unit is in a very central location with a short walk to the beach, pool, mall, gardens, etc. Pictures were exactly as shown. Lovely end unit which helped with the airflow and privacy. The shade from the Monkeypod tree was appreciated and listening to the birds congregating there was a real treat.
Our first week was so quiet. I would wake in the morning and just listen to the soothing sound of the birds. The second week we had a screaming baby next door and then when they left some kids downstairs that woke up and were awake and loud at 3 in the morning. With all the windows open it’s like they’re in the unit with you unfortunately. Obviously, this is something that can’t be helped.
We highly recommend the 60 minute helicopter tour with Jack Harter and Tidepools restaurant - highlights of our trip for sure.
All in all it was a wonderful trip and an awesome way to spend our 25th Anniversary.
Aloha and thanks for such a kind review! Kiahuna Plantation is a very unique place in that when it is calm, you hear all the nature but when there are noisy people you unfortunately hear all of that too. We have found that when this happens, you can close the shutters which does help to keep the bulk of the noise to a low roar, at least.
The helicopter tour really is worth while - would definitely recommend to others too! Mahalo and will be happy to help you with your next vacation to Kauai!
Relaxing in paradise
The condo is exactly as described with everything you could need or want. The balcony with all day shade made the holiday for us. The king bed was comfortable, our adult daughter says the couch is comfortable to sleep on. We simply removed the back cushions and the deep couch is almost a twin size bed. The little mall across the street has a few restaurants that range from cheap eats to higher end dining. The Whalers store has most of the basic needs if you run short. The beach is nice and sandy, no need for beach shoes. Great swimming, although not for small children as there is always surf. Loved the food trucks that seem to be everywhere, we ate at our fair share. BBQ’s just outside condo, very convenient.
Owner accommodating to our very late arrival, contacting us again day of arrival to ensure we were aware of how to gain entry. It was appreciated. All appliances in condo worked well, loved the ice maker. On site laundry clean and convenient.
Would not hesitate to stay in this condo again. Oh, we loved the huge coffee mugs!
