"This was our third trip to Kiahuna Plantation and first time staying at the Garlands' place. The condo is a 2BR/2Bath, very nicely furnished, spotless, situated close to the restaurant and office, with a peak of the Ocean out of the living room.
On our previous visits, we booked directly with Outrigger, which was fine. However, having a point of contact, especially one as helpful as Judy, was a much more pleasant experience. I would recommend the Garlands' place on that basis alone. She helped coordinate our arrival, made recommendations for restaurants, checked in with me numerous times to make sure I had everything I needed, and then made arrangements for us to check in to the condo early, which was a huge help as we got there in the morning. Thank you, Judy.
The garden location was very nice, and very quiet. There's a bbq right down below the unit, which we used a couple of times. I also appreciated the proximity to the restaurant/bar and a couple of times my wife and I hopped over there for a cocktail before dinner. The location also puts you close to the Poipu shopping village - we walked over there each morning for coffee.
The unit itself was great. It has every amenity you would expect to find in a well stocked place. Beds were very comfortable and easily accommodated our family of 4, with room to spare. Everything was exactly as advertised.
Lastly, I'll just give a shout out to Kiahuna Plantation in general. I've yet to find a place on Kauai that can match the killer beachfront location, ambiance (just walk the grounds at dusk and you'll se what I mean) and chill vibe of Kiahuna. I get the impression that they get a lot of repeat visitors and it's easy to see why. Thanks again to Garland family for having us."
