About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

NEWLY UPGRADED!! Brand new Koa wood flooring throughout, new tile and granite bathrooms, new furnishings in May 2016. Spectacular ocean views from the living room and master bedroom. Steps to the sand. This is the only beachfront condo resort in Poipu on a sandy beach. Spacious 2-level condo with open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, remodeled kitchen and new furnishings. Everything you need is included in this condo - linens, bedding, fully equipped kitchen, beach chairs/towels, beach toys, and all resort amenities including 24 hour office, concierge, security, maintenance, housekeeping, pool, waterslide, jacuzzi, tennis courts, golf course, bbqs. The sunny south shore offers a perfect holiday all year long. The east shore is very windy and the north shore (Princeville/Hanalei) is the rainy side and there are no condo resorts directly on the sand like the Kiahuna. Spend your vacation on the sunny side of the island!

Best beach in Kauai. Enjoy the sunny south shore in this beautiful tropical resort with orchid gardens, lush greenery and large grassy areas. This is traditional Hawaiian plantation style at its best ... not your typical high rise hotel. This low-density 35 acre resort is unparalleled in its tropical beauty, with more open space and vast grassy areas than most properties ... you will not find another resort like this. You can spend your entire vacation here without getting into your car. Snorkeling, swimming, surfing right out front. Walk to restaurants, shopping, market, pool, tennis, golf, luaus and other activities. Relax on the beach or sit in the grassy area next to the sand. This resort provides free beach chairs and towels and rents all watersports equipment. Surf lessons also available here. Enjoy the newly upgraded pool, gym and sports courts - tennis rackets/balls provided. Two premiere golf courses in Poipu. Come and enjoy the paradise of the Garden Isle of Kauai !

This condo is in building 32. Twice as big as the 1-bed condos here with 1584 square feet/147 square meters. We have two more 2-bedroom condos here - check listings #254147 and 717738. All 2-bedroom condos here are 2-story and have the same floorplan. Entry, bedrooms, bathrooms, lanai downstairs - living, dining, kitchen, lanai upstairs. We have a free porta-crib (bring a crib sheet) and stair gates.

About The Garlands

We both grew up at the beach in Southern California, and raised our family in San Diego. Our family loves surfing, the beach lifestyle and all tropical locations, so Hawaii is a second home for us!

The Garlands purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Garlands chose Kauai

Kauai is our favorite Hawaiian island with its lush tropical vegetation everywhere. We started bringing our kids to the Kiahuna Plantation when they were young. The Kiahuna is the perfect place for families, fun and relaxing without the crowds of Waikiki or Maui... so we kept going back. We finally decided to buy a condo so that we could enjoy more frequent trips to our favorite Hawaiian island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were delighted with how everything went with this condo rental. I am an avid reader of hotel room reviews, but renting a condo was new for us. We chose Poipu and the Kiahuna Plantation because we really liked the beach, village feel and laid-back atmosphere compared to Waikiki. The owners were super easy to deal with. Noise from the lot out front was not an issue and we stayed for 9 nights. I questioned the lack of glass windows for possible noise problems, but again there was no issue. You can easily close the shutters. Not once did any noise wake up our sleeping baby. The weather was great and we never needed AC. All kitchen appliances were in perfect order and we cooked 3 times per day. The owners kept in touch with us during our stay to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The condo overall was very clean and proximity to the beach was great! We preferred the location of this building #32 over other beachfront buildings since it felt more private and was surrounded by vegetation. We loved breakfasts on the patio and actually saw whales from the balcony and twice on the beach! It was a treat, especially to our parents who were visiting from Europe. The condo had LAN, Wi-Fi internet, satellite TV, CD and DVD player - more than you should need when on vacation. We liked the small shopping village across the road. There is an ABC Store there along with small retail shops and restaurants like Starbucks, Roys, Keokis & Puka Dogs. I would recommend a short 2 minute drive past the roundabout to a newer shopping village with more restaurants, health store and bigger selection of baked goods. I believe this property deserves a full 5-STARS for condos. You cannot be wrong by booking with these owners. Even though we should consider visiting Maui, I suspect that we will end up at Poipu again. And if this is the case, I am sure it will be at this condo.

Beautiful unit and amzing views

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a week in paradise. The location of this unit was perfect, especially with 3 little kids who needed naps, snacks and to get out of the sun. The unit it self is beautiful with lots of upgrades and everything you need to cook meals at home.

Perfect location with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 10 amazing days and loved it! We are a family of 4 with a 19 year old daughter and 16 year old son. There was plenty of room for all of us! Having 2 full bathrooms was such a bonus and the washer and dryer came in really handy after our muddy 8 mile hike up to the Hanakapi'ai Falls. We were covered in mud but had a fabulous time. The atmosphere at the condo was very family oriented and very quiet. Loved being able to hear the waves at night when we went to sleep. Two nights we had a loud group outside the window but honestly they were gone by 10-10:30. My husband was nervous about the no A/C but after the first day we didn't even notice it. We never went to the pool, the beach was perfect for us. Many days we'd get up early and grab some of the lounge chairs on the grassy section, or we'd grab the chairs from the condo and just hang on the beach. After driving to other parts of the island we came to realize that we had it great with no traffic issues in Po'ipu. So spoiled! We did use the fitness center a couple of times when my son didn't feel like doing a long run - it was nice and never crowded. Plenty of stores and places to eat nearby. One of our favorites was take out food from Da'Crack for Mexican food. If you are looking for a resort with lots of people and lots going on this is not the place for you. We went to the Grand Hyatt to have family pictures taken (highly recommend Pacific Dream Photography) and thought the place was beautiful but there were so many people! And they can't swim at their beach! Ditto when we at at Dukes in Lihu'e, the Marriott is beautiful but so many people and so much traffic. This is truly a hidden gem. If you are looking for a fun hike near by try the Makauwahi Cave Trail - it was easy, close and you could see turtles in the surf, dolphins if you are lucky and a very cool cave. The cave is only open on Wed, Fri, Sat & Sundays from 10-2. So much to do here you'll never get bored! The owners were super helpful and provided a ton of information about the resort and things close by. We would definitely stay here again. We hope we can someday!

Wonderful stay at a "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 magical days at this condo, and loved it here. The location was awesome, the staff was helpful, and the condo was stocked with every little thing we could think of. We felt like we were home! We found the pack-and-play and portable high chair to be very useful for our year-old daughter! The kitchen was very well stocked. The umbrella and boogie boards were perfect for the beach. The washer and dryer in the unit were an added bonus, saving us having to go to the coin operated laundry at the other end of the complex. The owners were very responsive to all our questions, and accommodated our requests for both an early check-in and a late checkout - a lifesaver when traveling with young kids! Thank you for making this such a memorable vacation for us! We would love to be back here some time soon. Mahalo!

Nice, roomy condo close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 7 day stay at this condo. It is large enough to accommodate multiple people without space constraints. A particular advantage is its close location to the beach. It is also near several shopping centers that have grocery stores and restaurant options from inexpensive to high end. The staff at the Kiahuna Plantation Resort were accessible and helpful when we had questions or needed assistance. The condo owners were very easy to work with and provided helpful information about the resort and Kauai activities in advance of our trip.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lihue airport at 15 Miles Nearest Golf : Kiahuna Golf Nearest Restaurant : Plantation Gardens on-site Nearest Beach : Poipu Beach

Golf and Tennis - 4 tennis courts, 4 half basketball courts, pickleball and shuffleboard courts. Kiahuna Golf course across the street. Poipu Bay golf course (2 miles east) near the Hyatt and Puakea (in Lihue) are beautiful. After 4pm at Poipu Bay, you can play for $10 with a child (age 6-17) who plays free - you must have your own clubs and walk (amazing deal since green fees are $120-$185).

The Kukuiolono public course (6 miles west) is $7-9 and great for kids. The Wailua course is inexpensive and good. The Princeville and Kauai Lagoons courses are outstanding.
