Very PRIVATE BEACHFRONT condo in Poipu! End unit in single-level building. #200

Bedrooms 1
Space 620 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Fall asleep to the sound of the waves in one of the most private beachfront homes in Poipu! Unit 200 is an end unit in a single-level building, surrounded on three sides by lush grass and unparalleled views of the ocean. The waves break literally 40 feet from the serene grassy lanai. Swaying palms shade the lanai from afternoon sun during most of the year. Three walls of plantation shuttered windows let in the cooling ocean breezes. The 4 panel floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to the beachfront lanai can close for serene quiet.

This remodeled condo features 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and open living area (with full kitchen, dining/nook, and family room that includes a pull-out couch), leading out to a lanai with grassy yard and privacy hedge (low enough to always see the beautiful ocean).

Located in Kiahuna Plantation, the only beachfront condo property in Poipu, guests enjoy front desk check-in/check-out, housekeeping, BBQs and picnic tables, beach hut (with beach towels, rentals, and activities), self-serve laundry room, orchid and cactus garden walks, expansive lawns, reflection lakes, and Plantation Gardens Restaurant and Bar. Guests also receive complimentary access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club across the street, featuring a resort pool, fitness gym, tennis courts, basketball half courts, pickleball courts, and café. Pool day passes and cabana rentals are also available at neighboring Sheraton Kauai Resort.

Walk across the street to Poipu Shopping Village with an array of dining (including Keoki’s Paradise restaurant, Puka Dog - featured on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations TV show, Thai and Mexican eateries, as well as gelato and breakfast spots) and shopping (including art, clothing, jewelry, and general store).

Less than a mile away is Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center with 42 dining and shopping venues, including art galleries, clothing, jewelry, casual and fine dining, drug store, and gourmet market with local produce.

About Dave and Sara Cogan

We are native mainlanders that fell in love with the island of Kauai and, specifically, the Poipu area. It was the first place we visited together as a couple, and got married there 4 years later. This is our second home, and we hope our guests will feel that way, too.

Dave and Sara Cogan purchased this condo in 2017

Why Dave and Sara Cogan chose South Shore

Kiahuna Plantation Resort is the only true swim able beachfront condo property in Poipu. The property itself is beautiful, and very well taken care of. The onsite amenities are great, and additional walkable lifestyle choices are many and varied. In the mornings and evenings, the beach becomes very quiet and you truly feel like it's your private beach.

Very nice location. Just a few steps to the water

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this was a very clean and well-appointed condo. My sole complaint was that it was bit hot and stuffy from midday to the late evening. Perhaps it was the time we went, but there were virtually no ocean breezes we've normally experienced on the Hawaiian Islands. One suggestion would be for a portable fan to assist with cooling the bedroom.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time, Jess. :) It's so rare to not have any ocean breeze, especially being right on the ocean. We've never experienced that ourselves at our home. We do have ceiling fans, and a floor fan located in the bedroom closet. We apologize - it sounds like it was hidden too well.

One of our top places to stay in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This place is great and the owners, Sara and Dan, are fantastic. They were very responsive to my few questions regarding the place and the place was exactly as described on HomeAway. My thoughts are as follows:


You are really paying for the location of this condo. It is literally on the beach with stunning views and great beach location. There is a nice grass area right in front of the condo. It is an end unit with some trees on the side that provide great shade in the afternoon hours so you can sit in the shade. It is around a 30 yard walk to the beach (note you cannot walk in a straight line from the condo to the beach as there is a hedge). The hedge though acts as a great barrier of privacy from the beach and your condo backyard. There is good surfing not too far away.


The condo itself was clean and in very good condition. Our sons brought their own air mattresses so I do not know how comfortable is the pullout sofa bed. The master bed was great and the kitchen had everything we needed but we did not cook meals at the condo. During the evening, it is noticeable warm but manageable. There are fans in the master bedroom and in the main room which are extremely helpful. We left the windows open at night which helped with the ocean breeze. We were fine without AC but it would have been a nice touch at times. Remember that we did stay here at the hottest time of the year. With that said, our family did not complain about the heat in the condo.


The gym is located across the street and is around a 10 minute walk or you can drive there. The gym itself had older equipment compared to what you would find in a Westin Hotel.With that said, it had a larger selection of equipment and the rooms were large. Our family liked the gym but realize you will not be using the latest equipment.

Swimming Pool

My family is beach people and we rarely use the swimming pool when we are in Hawaii. We never did use the swimming pool which is also located across the street by the gym at the same location. If a swimming pool is a high priority for your trip to Hawaii, the pool that we saw is very basic. It would work great for kids 8 and under. If you have older kids that like huge water slides and multiple swimming pools, this is not the location for you. For our family, the swimming pool is not a priority so it was a non-factor for us.


We loved it and we will be back. I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: So glad your family enjoyed your stay, Greg! Thanks so much for your thoughtful review! Just a quick note for guests that are looking for great pool time, as well...(1) The Poipu Athletic Club pool (free to guests) is great for kids, and at times is a nice quiet retreat from beach-goers. (2) Another great option is the Sheraton (right next door) that allows our guests to use their beach-side pool for a fairly small daily fee, which includes food and drink service, as well as pool cabana and beach cabana options.

We found the Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kiahuna Plantation condo #200 for the first time the last week of April and was beyond impressed. It was our sixth time staying at Kiahuna (all in the beach front) so I think we're pretty good candidates to say which condo ranks right up there in the top spot.

This is hands down the most private condo. You have a few vacationers who are occasionally lost walking past and the few morning joggers that come around but other than that its very secluded. The hedge in front is just the right height to allow a beautiful view of the ocean and great sunsets but high enough not to feel uncomfortable from the people on the beach. It is a one story building with only one neighbor on one side making it q quiet spot as well.

This condo has the best grassy shade for the hot afternoons! You can relax on the grass in front of the condo all afternoon into the evening as you watch the sunset.

The condo itself is stocked with everything you need, including nice new beach chairs, bogie boards and umbrella. The bed is comfortable, and the fold-out is perfect.

It has a Keurig coffee maker and coffee stocked adds a special touch. The owners are also great which makes this condo our best pick.

So if you’re planning on staying at Kiahuna Plantation, you cannot find anything better than this!

Great little beach condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway spot. RIGHT on the ocean! We could hear the waves crashing on the shore at night and watch the waves roll in from the kitchen, dining, living room, and private outdoor patio. Comfortable condo with fully stocked kitchen and even a collection of boogie boards and snorkel gear available for our use! End unit so lets in some extra airflow and also had the privacy of a private ocean retreat.

Kaihuna Plantation is also great. Beautiful lawns, gardens, nicely maintained, and well located with perfect beach access yet an easy walk to the shops and general store across the main road. We will definitely come back again!

Best place on Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

Hi! I simply loved this unit. The views are incredible. Monk seals lounging on the beach. Easy walks to great restaurants. And the owners are the most gracious and wonderful people I have ever dealt with.

Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5

The property is definitely beachfront although you must walk to the middle of the grounds or around the building in the back to gain beach access. The property is situated immediately next to a public beach. A few nights people were there drinking/smoking and playing music until around 11:00 p.m. The Sheraton Hotel next door also has a luau a couple of times per week which is very noisy in the evenings. Because of security concerns being on the first floor, we were also contacted by the property security office to close our doors and lock them in the evening. We did this but the unit became very hot at night because there was no air flow. There is a fan in the bedroom closet that we used and appreciated! These are the only negatives I can say about this property. The unit is small and cozy but great for 2 people. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the use of the boogie boards and beach chairs/umbrella in the closet. It was nice to have a refrigerator and stove (would recommend getting a toaster). Location was everything and we toured the entire island and found no comparison. Having the Sheraton next door was convenient and just a short stroll over to their grassy area we could watch the sunset every evening. We were able to see whales one day and were very excited about that! I would stay here again especially now that I know the ins and outs - Great property!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Carol. :) Usually our beach is empty and quiet at night and in the mornings. In cases like you encountered, don't hesitate to contact the front desk and inquire whether they may be able to help resolve any interruptions like this. The luau next door at the Sheraton is rated the best on the island. Though it's conducted twice per week, it ends at around 8:00pm. It offers an opportunity for guests to watch the show free from the beach, or for those not interested, it's a great time to go out for dinner. All guests are greeted by our onsite security, just because many guests have never stayed in accommodations with plantation shutters. The property and area are very safe, but the onsite security just wants guests to think about keeping things secure like you would in a hotel room. So, typically when we stay there, we leave slats of the plantation shutters open as we see fit per privacy concerns mainly. And lock the front and back door when not inside. There is also a safe for securing any small personal items. Regarding airflow, guests can leave open the shutter slats as they see fit, plus there are ceiling fans, and the additional floor fan (glad that came in handy for you). We do have a toaster. Sorry that may have been hidden too well in the kitchen. :) We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and are looking forward to having you again!
