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

It was hard to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for my husband's 40th birthday celebration, and couldn't have been more pleased! It was such a relaxing way to spend 10 days away. I loved having a kitchen, and a BBQ (which looked brand new) so close to our unit! We got fish from the local market, and had fantastic dinners on the lanai as a family. The unit has all the beach things you need when you have little kiddos, and it was decorated like a retro beach house! The washer and dryer was KEY to our vacation - being able to wash small loads with kids is huge. Our girls loved sharing the pull out couch bed, and we slept like babies in the king bed to the amazing rains at night. Because we were on a corner unit, the breezes and fans were enough to keep us cool. We also loved doing the beach in the morning, and then heading over to the pool across the street in the afternoon. They have poolside happy hour over there, and it was an awesome pool for kids! We all had a hard time leaving, and we hope to be back again someday!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! The bungalow was very comfortable and homey. We really enjoyed our say and loved Kauai! The Beach was a short walk away and we enjoyed the Poipu Beach Club a lot! Across the street was Little Fish Coffee, the Acai Bowl was so yummy! We enjoyed dinning a lot at Keoki's Paradise. Before our trip we purchased The Ultimate Kauai Guide Book which came in pretty handy. Our trip was wonderful and our stay was relaxing. We won't wait 30 years again!

Mahalo for the Memories,

Russ and Kristy

Incredible Hawaiian Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a fantastic spot. It's just steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on the South Shore of Kauai. It's decorated beautifully, has a brand new dishwasher, new washer and dryer, comfortable bed, and cool BBQ tools to make fresh fish every night. If you don't feel like cooking there are several delicious restaurants just a few minutes away. We spent Happy Hour out on the Lanai and our kids played on the grass in front of the unit. The owner has clearly taken good care of the place, it looks like it had been re-done recently which wasn't the case with other units we saw. We will be back to relax in this Hawaiian home away from home.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words! Kiahuna Plantation is a great place to truly relax. Easy for families, especially with the washer and dryer and the short walk to the beach. We have many returning guests and I look forward to yours. Thank you for staying at my little slice of paradise 🌴🌈🌺 Aloha, Susan

Hard to criticize paradise.

  • 4 of 5

Susan is very, very easy to communicate with, which helped since we had to adjust our dates more than once. She always got back to us immediately. Can't beat that. She really cares about her house, which is so nice when maintaining a rental. It's located in a good spot in the Kiahuna complex -- near parking and on the ground floor, so the grandkids who visited us stepped right out on the grass to play! You have a partial view of the ocean, but -- FYI, you also have a partial view of parked cars. Since it's on the corner end of the building, the breezes are a blessing! Now, personally speaking, I did feel that the condo is a bit congested. By that I mean that every available space is decorated, and every closet is "well stocked!" We certainly did appreciate the use of the boogie boards, cooler, umbrella, etc. which are stored in all the closets. However, I would have liked a bit of space to put our own belongings. I'm not one for a lot of photos, paintings, trivets, etc, and prefer somewhat less decorating. Our other family members in other condos had a bit more restful ambiance, but of course, that is totally my personal preference!! It's obviously a well-loved home, and the lanai, first floor, and breezes more than make up for any personal preferences for "calm" decorating! My daughter in-law thought it was darling! The sliding doors kept getting out of alignment, making it frustrating to open and close them. It's a tropical climate, so the salty air doesn't help. Please note that I'm obviously trying to be completely honest in my review, but ultimately, you're in Kauai, and you can't complain too much about paradise!

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.
