Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Susanne and Frank,

My family and I are about to leave Kauai and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your condo. It is a wonderful place and had everything that we could have hoped for. Your recommendations for things to do and see were very helpful and I think we managed to take in many of them. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend on this beautiful island. Hopefully, we will have a chance to return sometime in the future and stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us. With best regards,

May 2013

fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5
we rented the condo for 1 month and had a wonderful time

the condo was beautifully appointed with all the latest kitchen small appliances

it was very clean and the cleaning staff kept it that way -- supplying shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toilet paper, kleenex and kitchen towels -- they were also there if there were any problems with the tv or fans

it was a very rare hot month but the ceiling fans and ion fans did great - we moved the ion fan from the bedroom into the living room as the bedroom was cooler

the ammenties including great tommy bahamma beach chairs, snorkle gear were great-
there was also allot of toys for children on the beach

we went to the beach everyday except a few and the 2 minute walk was great -- we also used the pool one time and loved the slide and beautiful folliage - the gym was available and looked great but we didn't use it

the owner was very helpful with any questions we had and the photos of the unit were great but the ocean view is limited as the trees are growing but you do feel like you are in a tree house and have complete privacy

we did very little eating out as we found the condo perfect for relaxation -- the dishes and silverware and all kitchenware were of the best quality - we put all our food in the rubbermaid tupperware for picnics and storage to prevent ants -- there were none

we can't wait to go back and highly recommend this condo

Owner's Response: Aloha Fred and Terry,
Mahalo for submitting your thoughts ! Good to hear you made use of all our extra amenities and that you too liked the feeling of a treehouse that the location of our condo offers. It is so nice to hear and watch the birds and have a nice meal on the large lanai. We know that very seldomly, it does get hot in Kauai and we are happy to hear that the two extra Fan cooling towers helped to keep a comfortable temperature. Hopefully you can come back soon and we promise we will keep our condo in excellent condition to make it a real home away from home.
Very warm greetings, Aloha and Mahalo ! Susanne and Frank

Very cozy home-like apartment close to beach

  • 4 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed in Susanne's cozy and home-like apartment for two nights in July and we really enjoyed our stay there. First of all, these unique plantation houses with the apartments in them is something I've never experienced before. The apartment is very airy, on the too floor with a superb view of the top of the trees, nice and green. The balcony is nice and secluded and we had breakfast there every day. The apartment is very nicely furnished, very new and clean. One feels like home there straight away! It is also equipped with everything that you need. - We cooked there every night. - even guide books. The bed is nice and comfy, as well. The location is awesome, as it's close to the beach, close to the shops (all walking distance) and close for day trips to the Waimea Canyon). The tone is a 5min drive away and has some nice shops and restaurants. There is also a shopping centre opposite the road. Susanne has also been very helpful by providing lots of extra information, was super quick and friendly and made us feel comfortable and welcome straight away! Thanks for an awesome stay! We'd always come back!!

Perfect Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is my husband and I second visit to Kauai. I have to say this vacation was just PERFECT!! We stayed at this condo for 12 days and everything about this condo is AMAZING! Susanne and Frank has accommodated everything that we need. They went out of their way to even get a crockpot for us. They are so sweet in many ways to satisfy our stay. The communication that I had with Susanne was amazing too! Overall, to make this short and sweet review. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Kauai. Thank you so much Susanne and Frank for an unforgettable stay. xoxo

Great condo and we had a great vacation there. The only thing is that we didn't know there wasn't air-conditioning and it was REALLY hot there. We really didn't get a breeze because there are so many trees around but the fans helped. I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Dear Pat and Bill,
thank you for your review. We are happy you had a great time, even if NO Unit at Kiahuna has aircon. This is typical for Kiahuna, as it features the charm and characteristics of the old plantation style housings, which are so special to Poipu. Normally, the fans which we added additionally to the ceiling fans and breezes are enough to cool you down, looks like it has been a terrific summer :-) . We hope you will come back again and we will do our best to always make our guests feel like home.
Mahalo and Aloha, Susanne

Sehr schönes Condo mit nahezu allem ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in dem Condo. Es liegt nahe am Strand und neben einem exotischen Garten mit vielen Orchideen. Die Einrichtung hat uns sehr gut gefallen und es ist alles vorhanden. Der Balkon mit zwei Liegen ist geräumig und bietet bequem Sitzgelegenheit für vier Plätze am Tisch. Im Einkaufszentrum gegenüber gibt es genügend Restaurants und einen Supermarkt. Guten Gewissens empfehlen wir dieses Appartement auf der für uns schönsten Insel Hawaiis weiter.

Well appointed condo for the price

  • 5 of 5
Susanne probably has the most well appointed condo in all of Kiahuna Plantation. From the amazing Jura superautomatic coffee maker (so good I had to buy one myself) to the KitchenAid, Ninja blender and JA Henckels silverware you can make some amazing meals and drinks if you so choose. The huge Samsung tv and blu-ray player were a joy to watch after the sun went down and businesses had closed. The pool across the street was extremely kid friendly, had a waterslide and waterfall, and even free soft drinks! Of course the beach is only a short walk through the Plantation Gardens away.

Though there is not much sandy real estate directly fronting the property, it is a short walk to Poipu or you can lounge on the beautifully kept Great Lawn or walk over to the Sheraton.

Two minor detractions of our stay. One were the very thin walls (all of Kiahuna Plantation units are like this). And the other is that the unit is a 3rd floor walk-up so get ready for some exercise. One advantage of being high up however are the great breezes and view of the treetops.

For the price, I cant think of a better place to stay on the South Shore!

Owner's Response: Aloha both ! Mahalo so much for your kind review. It is always nice to see that our guests appreciate our extra efforts to make our condo a real home. Third floor is a little bit of exercise, yes, but as you say, the view is great and the vaulted ceilings give that extra touch of air and space. We would be more than happy to have you back again as our guests, until then, Aloha and many happy memories of your stay ! Susanne and Frank


From the Owner

As we have been coming to Kauai twice per year for the last 10 years, we finally decided it was time to get an own condo, so we could build our home far away from home. We love the beautiful gardens, the sunny side of the island, and the fact, that Kiahuna is the only real beach front condo vacation rental, that offers a wonderful swimming and snorkeling beach. Everything for your convenience is at hand and in walking distance: restaurants, shops, a Whaler shop, golf courses, tennis and pool.... Last but not least it is also the people and staff at Kiahuna that also make you feel at home.

From the Owner

We like especially about our condo the top floor location with the vaulted ceilings and its new exquisite unusual equipment. The large lanai offers a view into the beautiful trees and garden, making you feel as you were sitting in a tree house. The birds sing every morning and the beach is so close. We upgraded the interior to make it special, two extra large TVs, offering full digital HD-TV including FREE HBO! A blu-ray player, Wii console, and even an European espresso machine to enjoy those special drinks on your lanai is also our standard. We added a wine cooler and now, you can print and copy with our brand new HP Ptinter, which we provide for our guests use. We want you to feel at home, just like we do.
