Start your vacation off right with a cold drink on your private lanai, overlooking tropical gardens and your own slice of the plantation’s 35 acres of lush landscaping. Inside, the breezy open living and dining space invites you to kick back and relax with a book or a glass of wine, get a card game going, or book the next day's tour or island adventure using the free WiFi.

Catch your favorite show on the flat-screen cable TV before drifting off, then wake up completely rejuvenated after sleeping soundly in a plush king-size bed in the beautifully decorated bedroom. If you’re traveling with friends or your ohana, the living room sleeper sofa pulls out to comfortably sleep two more.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Someone from our office is available almost 24 hours/day to answer your questions and help you find the perfect place to call home during your tropical getaway. We take great pride in the properties we manage and believe that we truly have some of the best properties the island has to offer. We have been in each property numerous times and stayed in most so that we can give you an accurate description of what each property's amenities are, distances to the beach, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We can also help you with any activities you might be interested in while on island such as surfing lessons, private boat charters, guided hikes, stand up paddling, personal chef, childcare and much more! Mahalo for looking :)

Why Great Vacation Retreats chose Poipu

Something For Everyone: Whether its enjoying a quiet, relaxing sunset from your private top-floor lanai, playing a round of 18 at Kiahuna Golf Club across the street, or ziplining through treetops, you'll always find something to write home about.

Plantation Perks: Not only does Kiahuna 313 come with a vacation membership to Poipu Beach Athletic Club, but a free midsize car rental for exploring the island too!

Steps From it All: With communal grills and picnic areas, botanical gardens, boutique shops, water sport rentals, and Kauai’s most popular beach all just a short walk away, it’s no wonder Kiahuna Plantation was named one of the top five hotels in 2014 by Conde Nast magazine.

What makes this condo unique

Start your day off with a latte from local favorite Little Fish Coffee, then pop into a few boutiques for an island souvenir at Poipu Shopping Village. From there, the world is your oyster.

Stroll through famous Moir Gardens, home to rare orchids and cacti, or grab a towel and some sunscreen and make the short 5-minute walk down to award-winning Poipu Beach for paddle boarding, swimming, snorkeling, or sunbathing. Depending on the season, you may even spot some breaching whales. Once you’ve soaked up enough rays, head to Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar for a handcrafted cocktail and some regional Pacific Rim cuisine while watching the sun sink into the ocean.

If you’re looking for a resort-style stay, we have you covered. You'll receive complimentary access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, home to a fitness center, hot tub and sparkling pool with a waterslide and sand-bottomed kiddie section – everything you need to work out, cool off or wind down, just across the street.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

First, the overall location of the Kiahuna Plantation Resort on the island in Poi'pu is great. You're not far from the airport, day trips to Waimea Canyon, Koke'e State Park, or hikes and other adventures around Wailua. The Kiahuna Beach is awesome and much less crowded than the near by Poi'pu beach. Fun surfing and snorkeling right off the beach. Munk Seals sleeping on the beach almost every day (don't get close to them!). Also, being in Poi'pu you have much better weather, typically, than the North Shore.

Second, the actual room was very nice. It was clean and comfortable. It was nice being in an end unit which provided more windows for ventilation on the west side of the unit and a 270 degree view from the back deck including a partial ocean view. They provided soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion in the bathroom. They also provided some local snacks and a couple beers in the fridge. Sweet! The checkout process was very easy.

Now, the only down side...the unit is in building 38 which is a bit of a hike to the beach. Not a big deal, but not as close as most other units in the Plantation. This is offset by 1. the lower cost per night, and 2. the fact the gardens on the Plantation are directly below your back deck. In fact, the overall grounds on the entire Plantation are well kept and very beautiful.

Lastly, the free car rental is no joke! It worked out with zero problems. We were even able to upgrade to a Jeep for a small additional fee.

We would absolutely stay at the Kiahuna Plantation Resort again, and if 313 was available we wouldn't hesitate!

Kiahuna Plantation is an enjoyable place to vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condos are perfect for beach fun and central for traveling around the island. This condo is a short walk to the beach and across the street for restaurants and shopping. We liked that this condo included the rental car. The communication with Homeaway was excellent.

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself was lovely. It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable for two people. The only issue we encountered had nothing to do with the condo itself. There was major construction across the street at the Sheraton Resort. Jackhammers. All. Day. We couldn't use our balcony because the noise was deafening. That really put a damper on trying to relax after a day of exploring. We were told that the Sheraton is doing renovations to get ready for the summer. Before renting this condo, I would double check with Kiahuna Plantation as to whether construction is still happening. My husband would like to add that there was no salt in condo as well. so...BYOS. Otherwise, this place is great!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for leaving a review. They are so helpful for future guests. Unfortunately, we don't have control over the work being done at the Sheraton and they don't always know when they will be working or not. We will bring some salt to the condo:) Thanks again for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay!

Great location, needs basic maintenance

  • 3 of 5

This location is absolutely ideal and the beach at Kiahuna is fantastic. The complimentary access to Poipou Beach Athletic Club was great. The fact that car rental was included with the unit was also great. It could be communicated a little more clearly in the initial description that the car rental would be made via a national chain and all reservations would be taken care of by GVR. The process worked well, though.

The unit desperately needed some very basic maintenance. The screens and fans we filthy and caked with crud throughout the unit. The screen on the slider needs repairs as it was not in the frame in a few parts (we put tape on it to seal the holes). When we walked in after traveling for nearly a full day, there were big ugly bugs inside and geckos on the ceiling. We discovered the slider was off the track, so we fixed it, and one of the screens next to the slider also was not properly in place, so creatures were able to easily get inside. We fixed that, too. The carpet in the living room had big stains which should be simple maintenance but it hadn't been taken care of. The seal on the fridge is broken and needs to be replaced, also a simple fix. With no AC in the unit, you may want to consider LED light bulbs in the kitchen and dining room. When those lights were on, the temperature noticeably increased.

When we arrived and found bugs inside I immediately reached out via email to GVR for assistance while my husband simultaneously found a number for onsite maintenance. I got a response right away in the morning from GVR and an on island rep was asked to contact me, but that person did not follow through in any way. Luckily maintenance was on it and had pest control out that day.

We would consider staying again because the location was so ideal. But please, please do basic maintenance and cleaning!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. We have met with everyone on our team to make sure the lack of follow for your maintenance and cleaning request doesn't happen again. It sounds like your items were addressed but the follow up made to you was missing and we apologize for that. The cleaning staff has been changed for this condo and we have looked at and fixed all screens and slider repairs that you mentioned. Again, we are sorry that your stay was not perfect and we hope to make it up to you on a future stay.
