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!

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 Family Vacation!

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.

The beautiful property is seen from the lanai!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Very close to beach and most other things on the island. "Joes on the green", across the street, has a great happy hour and friendly staff with live music. The condo has a terrific layout with a balcony on both the main and second floors. The grounds of the complex are well kept and offer plenty of locations to BBQ. Would definitely stay again.

Our amazing Christmas on Kauai

  • 5 of 5
We booked a surprise vacation for our 3 boys to Hawaii. They range in age from 11-15. We stayed here over the 2013 Christmas holidays. It was a wonderful place to kick back and relax. Just the vacation we were looking for. The condo was nice, clean and very comfortable. We were able to cook many of our meals in the condo. If you like to grill, there are many clean, state of the art grills located around the property. The condo is very close to an amazing beach. It is also very close to many other beaches as well. It really is located in the perfect location on the island. As a bonus you can walk across the street to a grab a few groceries, coffee, shaved ice and more. We felt very lucky to find this condo. The owners Jim and Jennifer were awesome! They were genuinely interested in our family having the vacation of a lifetime, offering up suggestions for activities and places to see. The condo was very close to the parking lot and easy to access via a short flight of stairs. Unloading luggage was easy! We used the concierge to book a sunset sail. I must admit this trip to the NaPali coast in the winter months is not for the faint of heart. Huge swells left many sea sick. However, the sunset was beautiful and we would do it again, but probably with a dose or two of dramamine. We drove two miles down a dirt road close to the Hyatt for some pretty good snorkeling. You can also check out the cave while you are there. It is open on Sundays. You do not want to miss it! The condo is very accessible to so many activities both on foot and by car. If you have ever wanted to surf this is the place for you. The beach in front of the condo is home to several instructional surfing programs. Unfortunately, we did not get to to this, but we will next time. It looked like a lot of fun. We also hired a photographer to take family pictures. Also we heard that Captain Tara is great to sail with as she has many years of experience as a marine biologist. Don't miss the sunset from the grass at the Beach House Restaurant. You do not have to have to dinner to sit on the lawn. Excellent food and drinks are served in the bar area. The bar seems to clear out once the sun has set. Thanks Jim and Jennifer for sharing your wonderful condo. And thanks for being so awesome to work with. We hope to get back there even though it is quite a long way from Maryland.:) It was well worth it! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Stewart, for your wonderful review. We really appreciate it. You were an amazing guest and we welcome you to return again and again.


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.
