About Susan Muscatell

I'm Susy Muscatell and I reside full-time in Petaluma, CA. This condo is my dream come true and home away from home. Hawaii has been a big part of my life for 35+ years and holds very special memories for me and all of my family. It's very full-filling to share this little piece of paradise with others - my family, friends and those who I haven't met. Hopefully they see in it what I do...the beauty, it's wonderful people and the ultimate place to relax and have a great time!

Susan Muscatell purchased this condo in 2003

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the great week. We loved your unit at the Kiahuna and would definitely stay there again. Everything was exactly as advertised. A charming and sunny unit that was just perfect for me and the two kids. We used the beach toys that were there and left a few more for future guests.

Thank you!

A five star condo - one of the best at Kiahuna

  • 5 of 5

Superb beach ambiance. The ground level location opens to lush vegetation on the lanai and onto an extended lawn. We ate many meals on the lanai. Short walk to the beach. The unit is perfectly decorated with a beach theme and is very comfortable. I slept soundly on a very comfortable mattress (I was told by the front desk that it was new). All the appliances worked well including the washer and dryer. The condo is well maintained and was very clean upon arrival. Staff was very helpful, including directions for the TV controls. Good restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Great location, needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location of beach house 144 is spectacular. Poipu beach is incredible and the unit itself is a very short 5 minute walk to the ocean. The good: location, corner unit so that cool breeze comes through, lanai is in a more secluded area so very nice and quiet. The not so good: the unit was not spotless when we arrived and could use a deep clean. The $125 cleaning charge seems steep when the unit wasn't that clean when we arrived. The closets were packed with stuff, cramped and disorganized.The main television did not work. The washer/dryer is old and the washer resulted in some discoloration of our clothes. The mattress is king but the mattress itself was very uncomfortable. We did not have a good night of sleep during our stay because of the mattress. The location of the unit is incredible and we could probably over-look the other things if the mattress was super comfortable but having a good night sleep on vacation is major. We were zombies by the time we left. An incredible mattress will have people returning over and over. Lovely location but will probably look for another unit for our visit next year due to the mattress alone.

Owner's Response: Megan, So glad you enjoyed Poipu beach and the location of Beachhouse 144. A mattress can feel comfortable to one person and not to the next. I have never had a complaint. I wish you had reported the TV not working to me or to Castle. I would have had the Castle maintenance look at it. Sometimes it's just the control. Having a washer and dryer is a welcome amenity at Kiahuna Plantation. Only 10 % of the units have them. Castle reported today that the TV works just fine. They also checked the washer / dryer and it is fully functioning. Guests leave beach purchases in the closet. The toys and Boogie boards left behind are appreciated. The closets were organized two weeks before your arrived. In addition, on twice a year trips to Kauai I clean out the closets of unnecessary items. Regards, Susan

Noise transmission

  • 2 of 5

Although the grounds were lovely and the condo pretty good the noise from upstairs and surrounding buildings was unbearable and ruined our ability to get to sleep or sleep in. My advice is always book a top floor apartment away if possible from other condo's or you will lose a lot of sleep.

Owner's Response: So sorry you experienced noise transmission for your 3 night stay at Kiahuna. Our unique historic design is part of the charm. The windows are purposely made to allow the trade winds to cool the condos without the need for air conditioning. The Windows in all the buildings are the same from the top stories to the ground level. There are no elevators at Kihauna Plantation so staying on the ground floor does have advantages. Many returning guests love to be able to walk right out on to the lawn. Suitcases and groceries are also easy to deal with.

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5

Kauaii has become our favorite Hawaiian Island and we hope we will have the opportunity to come back anytime in the future. I think one of the reasons we felt immediately so comfortable and at home on the island was Beachhouse 144. We are very grateful that we could stay at your wonderful condo, Susan!

Everything was perfect and in its place. Thank you for a great vacation!
