2 Bdrm/2 Bath Ocean View Condo. Spectacular View!

A lot of people ask us if the pictures above of the view from our condo are real or not. Yes, they are real--we took them with our iphones last time we visited. As you can see, our condo has a wonderful view of the ocean from both the upstairs and the master bedroom. Perfect for your relaxing holiday!

The Kiahuna Plantation's unique beauty and sandy beach make it the perfect location on Kauai's south shore for honeymooners, families, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays.

We think this ocean view unit has one of the nicest locations at the Kiahuna property. The amazing view from both the upstairs and downstairs looks out over the lagoon, a garden/lawn and the blue, blue ocean. Although it is only a minute's walk to the beach, it has a very peaceful and private feel. No one walks in front of the unit. It is all garden and water.

This unit is comfortable for babies to centurions. The beach out in front of the condo is great for snorkelers, sunbathers, kids of all ages and beginning to advanced surfers. Wonderful gardens, comfortable pathways and open grassy lawns abound at the Kiahuna making it easy to walk in just your flip flops or even barefoot!

The unit itself is spacious,comfortable and clean. Upstairs has the main living area and the fully equipped kitchen, both with a wonderful view. The kitchen is ready for use when you are tired of going out to all the great nearby restaurants. Or, you can relax and enjoy the outdoor barbeques close by. The whole upstairs is a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the view and ocean breezes.

Downstairs there is a master suite with attached bath. The master also has a wonderful ocean view and it's own TV. The second bedroom, on the garden side of the condo has two twin beds that can convert to a king. The second bath is next to the second bedroom.

Every activity there is to do in Hawaii can be done right from this unit. If not at the Kiahuna, then just a short walk or drive away. Sailing,fishing,sightseeing, hiking, anything on the ocean-- paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing (two nice breaks right in front of the Kiahuna), snorkeling, diving or just floating with cocktail in hand! There is a beach hut and showers right close to the condo. The beach hut can get you everything you need for the beach: towels,chairs,sunscreen snorkeling gear and even sand castle building supplies!

Local activities all within walking distance to your condo include diving instruction, surf and paddle board rentals and lessons, and outdoor yoga on the lawn.

For those that want to get away from the beach for a short while the Kiahuna Plantation grounds offer amazing gardens filled with lily ponds, Koi, orchids, cacti, tropical flowers and colorful bird life. Throughout, there are large, mature tropical trees interspersed with spacious rolling lawns. The lawns go right up to the beach and many people enjoy lounging on the grass in the shade of the coconut palms, enjoying a good read, with an occasional dip in the ocean.

The gardens and the original Plantation House, now the onsite restaurant, are pieces of history from the early days of the first sugar plantation. Well worth exploring!

The condo is just a short walk to the restaurants and shops across the street. We love Kioki's with it's open air seating and live music at the bar. Roy's is also a favorite restaurant and there's plenty of shopping!

There is also a grocery store for stocking up your condo and buying gifts. The famous Brennecke's beach is just a short distance away. A new mall, Kukui'ula, has just opened nearby with it's own natural foods store, more shopping and restaurants.

Kauai itself has unlimited things to do and explore. From shopping to helicopter rides to exploring the North and West shores by Zodiac or catamaran excursions. Last time we were there we paddle boarded up the Wailua River and then hiked up to Secret Falls. Really an incredible experience! We will send you information on some of the things to do on the island with your reservation.

Just know that whenever you come back to the Kiahuna you will have a beautiful and comfortable home to hang your sunhat in- with its' own amazing view of the ocean that may make you not want to leave!

Recent Review

About the Owner

We recently bought this beautiful condo and are placing it on VRBO and Home Away for the first time (that is why we don't have any reviews yet). The previous owner kept it for themselves and rarely rented it and kept it in wonderful condition. When our kids were growing up we spent many great vacations at the Kiahuna Plantation in many different units, each one unique and always comfortable. This Fall we came back to the Kiahuna and again realized why we love it so much. We found this wonderful condo for sale with what we feel is one of the nicest locations in all the resort and decided to buy it. We are excited to share it with you.

We invite you to be the first to share your positive review for what may be your best vacation ever! We are excited to put our heart and energy into this wonderful piece of paradise.

Great location. Clean, well appointed, comfortable bedding. Beach & surf steps away. Helpful to have street address before hand as check in & unit a bit of a challenge to find w/o benefit of GPS system. 2nd floor, no elevator. Kauai epitomizes Hawaii of yesteryear. Had a great time.

Rather shabby for the price

  • 2 of 5
Our suite had the misfortune of being the second place we stayed on our trip to Kauai; we could not find one place that suited us for the whole trip. We knew the furnishings were going to be dated based on the photos, but what you can't see is how shabby the place is. The carpets were filthy, the wall paper was peeling, and the fixtures were grubby and coming out of the walls etc. If this had been the only place we stayed, we might not have been so disappointed, but the other property was absolutely beautiful as well as less expensive. The other property also had a washer/dryer in suite, as well as beach towels, chairs, snorkel equipment, tennis rackets etc, none of which was available in this condo. At this property, towels are provided at the beach hut in the middle of the property, as are lounge chairs for use on the resort only; any other items you want you have to rent.

This suite is a good size, although it is on two floors which makes for a bit of running around. The lanai was very crowded with deck furniture, limiting its usefulness. The kitchen was nice and big, and had all the utensils etc you would need, but the counters were tiled and the grout was rather grubby as well. On the side of the unit towards the entrance hallway, there are no glass windows, only shutters, so you can hear every footstep and conversation. This might not be a big deal for most, but it was very loud in the room our baby was trying to nap in.

The owners of the condo seem nice, and responded to all my questions promptly. They did allow us a very late check out (7:00pm) for a charge, although the charge was double what it would have been at our first rental.

The resort itself is quite nice. There is a large grassy area our toddler loved to run around. We were told the beach was suitable for a toddler, and this is not the case as it was far too steep and too rough for a 18 month old (we went to Poipu Beach which has a lagoon area which was perfect for a little one). This condo is adjacent to a lagoon, which is pretty, but is home to some very noisy frogs! However, we did not hear any of the roosters that are ubiquitous on the island, so figured that was the trade off.

I wasn't expecting perfection, but comparing our two rentals, this one definitely came up short.

Owner's Response: As much as we would love to provide a washer and dryer in our unit the Resort does not authorize us to do so due to flood/maintenance risk of property and possible damage to building that is shared with other owners. The property offers a guest laundry facility for that reason so guests can get their laundry done.

Hopefully you notified the on site management team of your dissatisfaction with the cleanliness--we live on the mainland 5000 miles away and depend on them and trust them to maintain our unit for our guests and have rarely ever received any complaints. We have passed your comments on to them in hopes that they will step it up! They have always been meticulous.

The Beach Hut on property provides anything and everything our guests need for the beach including unlimited fresh beach towels daily during your entire stay. There are (or have been) boogie boards in our unit for your use. Specialty sports equipment like surfboards and tennis rackets are usually brought by guests as they are typically particular about those items. However, they are available for rent at the tennis club and at local surf shops. Golf clubs would be in that same situation.

The floorplan of our unit is stated in our description so if a 2 story unit or one of its size is not suitable to a guest and they would prefer a smaller unit or one on a single story with no stairs, that decision can be made ahead of time so there are no surprises. We have had inquiries from folks who are in wheelchairs or have mobility issues and have been very forthright about offering that they might choose a different unit.

The shutters you spoke of on the windows are part of the entire Kiahuna Plantation design. All the units have the same windows and shutters. Our unit is no different. Some travelers prefer closed glass windows and air conditioning as opposed to fresh tropical breezes that flow through these signature plantation style screened louver style windows. We have been using the Plantation for over 20 years and have absolutely loved that aspect of these units. It is very "old Hawaiian". Staying at the Hyatt might be more what you are looking for next time!

We are glad you appreciated the amazing grounds of the Kiahuna, unlike any place in the islands. We are a bit confused about your description of the beach as Poipu Beach IS the beach directly in front of our unit and the complex?

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We welcome your input.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
we had a great time, plenty of room for our family of 5. Beautiful view, close to the beach
LOTS of roosters crowing all hours of the night...maybe ear plugs or a lot of wine before bed :)
We walked across the street to the shopping center for ice cream, restaurants and shopping. Swimming at Poipu was the best! Lots of sea life
Took the Blue Dolphin snorkel cruise...highly recommend
Also the Rainbow Kayaak tour to the Secret Waterfall, very muddy hike was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay! We are so glad you had a good time and enjoyed the unit. Kiahuna is a great place for families for sure. We hope you achieved your goal of celebrating family being all together again and appreciating each other and how precious life is and the gift to have your loved ones close. Hawaii is a good place for that! And especially Poipu Beach.

Great place to stay

We enjoyed the Condo unit a great deal. Complex is in a great place and the beach is a short walk. Kids even took Surf Lessons that were available right outside the unit. Easy parking, great neighbors. I would not hesitate to use this unit again if they will let me.

Owners were very helpful and great communicators.
The beautiful property is seen from the lanai!
The two stories for living and sleeping helped everyone have their space and be able to spread out and relax.
Wonderful wild life (birds / fish / whales / Monk seal) just steps away!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Peter! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay on beautiful Kauai and enjoyed the Kiahuna Plantation. The lagoon is a special spot. It is wonderful that you could appreciate the wildlife from the unit and everybody was comfortable! Thanks so much for the nice review.

From the Owner

The Kiahuna Plantation resort is unique to all the islands. It is not a hotel or a time share. The property is also very open and spread out, low density with wonderful pedestrian grounds between the classic plantation style buildings. It also has its own beach. It's a great enhancement to your vacation to be able to get away from cars, garages, and parking lots. All the condos have the same floor plan (one and two bedroom) and similar interior design but every location within the Kiahuna is different. All are nice, but some are noisier than others, some have more pedestrian and car traffic than others and some have more privacy than others. When we found this condo we knew from experience that we had found something special. Our condo has a breathtaking view of the ocean and yet it is far enough from the busy beach and road traffic to be very quiet and serene. Nobody walks in front of the condo giving a very private feel, even in crowded times of the year.

The Kiahuna Plantation has the only resort associated sandy beach in the Poipu area. The beach is wonderful and safe for kids of all ages. For the adventurous there are two great surf spots right out in front of the Kiahuna.

Close by are several world class golf resorts open to the public. Within walking distance are many shops, restaurants and even a grocery store and Starbucks.

Famous Brennecke's Beach is also just a walk or a short drive away with all it's shops, restaurants and surf shop.

The Kiahuna Plantation is a great location to launch your adventures anywhere on the island. Everything on the island is within an hour's drive. When you are done with your sightseeing this condo is a wonderful place to return to relax, decompress and get ready for more adventures!

From the Owner

The condo is a minute's walk to the sandy beach and a six or seven minute walk to the shops and restaurants across the street. It is just a short walk to the check-in areas. The parking lot next to the condo, although just far enough away to not be a sound problem, is close enough for easy access in and out of the car. And it usually has good spots available! The condo is situated nicely to get a lot of brightness and to capture the ocean breezes.
