About Susanne Wisnewski

We, Susanne and Frank, are a German couple, 49 and 52 years old, happily married for many years, with three grown up kids, two boys and one girl.

We are now living and working in Switzerland. We both graduated from German universities, work as managers, and we love traveling and meeting new people.

Frank loves deep sea fishing, snorkeling and surfing. Susanne also shares his hobbies, but is also fond of reading and learning new languages.

Kiahuna has always been our favorite place to stay.

Why Susanne Wisnewski chose Kauai

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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

How is delightful? Accommodations satisfactory. Small kitchen loaded w unnec. equip.

  • 4 of 5

How can Kauai be anything but delightful?! Accommodations were satisfactory, 3rd story walk has huge and unnecessary equipment...2 coffee makers, world class mixer, etc. Lovely view of a monkey pod tree from a great lanai. Comfortable bed and furniture. Paying $10 for one extra towel seemed a bit much.

Owner's Response: Dear Jake, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As you mention, we have a very well equipped kitchen, with many accessories which not everyone will make use of, but which will save a lot of money and is very convenient if you stay longer and love to prepare your own meals and enjoy them on the big lanai or in the living room. We wanted to create a home away from home where nothing is missed, so we equipped everything with those additional extras,like our unique original Swiss Jura espresso automat! Kauai is indeed a very special place and we are happy that you enjoyed your time ! We hope to welcome you again and send you our warm Aloha! Susanne and Frank

You are always welcome, Aloha, Susanne and Frank

Well Equipped and Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

It is a very well equipped and comfortable condo. It has everything you need for a beach vacation. I especially enjoyed using the high end Jura coffee machine. The Internet is very fast. The new and nearby Living Foods grocery store is very good. I enjoyed a dinner out at Keoki's Paradise. I found the Poipu location to be a very good one for exploring the island. Not as much traffic as other areas of the island. I needed more days to just relax at the beach. I was busy most days exploring the island.

Owner's Response: Dear John thanks so much for taking the time to leave this nice review! It is also a pleasure for us to read that our guests enjoy the little extras we provide like the original swiss Jura exprosso machine :-). As we see our condos as our second homes, we have equipped them with all these little things we had earlier missed in other condos and which now make our stays even more pleasant. As you say, Poipu is really a great area with a great swimming beach right infront. We do hope you will come back soon and we would love to welcome you again in our Home away from Home. Aloha and Mahalo from Susanne and Frank

Amazing Location

  • 4 of 5

We had an incredible time in Kauai. We stayed at this unit in Poipu for 3 days and 6 days at the north shore. The unit has everything you need with a great view and the grounds which are amazing. It's a quick walk to the beach and there are many restaurants near by. Overall it's a great place to stay on the south of the island. Unfortunately, I do have one major complaint: the mattress needs to go. There is a major dip, especially on the left side (if facing the bed) to the point where you start leaning, falling into the middle of the bed. Extremely uncomfortable and I woke up with pain each morning. I would suggest the owner send someone over to check it out for themselves and you'll see what I'm talking about. Other than that, everything was magnificent.

Owner's Response: Dear Nathan, thanks for your kind words and the infos. We are on Kauai right now and have replaced the mattress with a new memory foam gel topper, as we think it is the best solution nowadays. We hope you will return soon to beautiful Kauai and we can be your home away from home again! Mahalo and Aloha, Susanne and Frank

Well equipped suite in a well maintained development

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 11 nights in this unit at the Kiahuna Plantation. The beach at this location is very nice and is shared with the Sheraton and public access. It is WAY less crowded than the Poipu Beach Park. We saw monk seals on the beach on three different occasions. The only downside was that the high tide/high surf had eroded the two Kiahuna beach access points so we had to walk around to the public access area. Not a big deal and not far, but slightly inconvenient. I am sure it will be fixed at some point. You can arrange a number of activities at the activity centre at the beach - the surf lessons were well done, but we didn't do any of the other activities.

The unit was well equipped, as many others have already mentioned, with lots of extras. I especially appreciated the large assortment of rubbermaid food storage containers. Great for leftovers or picnics. Lots of dishes and cutlery, not like some places who only provide 4 settings. The ninja blender was a disappointment (compared to my vitamix at home) but made an adequate, albeit not really smooth, smoothie. The only other minor annoyance was the showerhead. Very low velocity coming out. Restaurants we enjoyed: Keiko's, Pizzeta (Koloa), Plantation Gardens, Oasis on the Beach (Kapaa), Olympic Cafe (for lunch). Best day trip was to Polihale State Park. What a beautiful spot. Best if you have a 4x4 for that one. Also, if it is raining in Poipu, try the west coast. We found blue skies and some decent snorkeling at Salt Pond Park (saw an octopus!).

The other great thing about our trip was the fitness facility. The pool isn't huge but had a small waterslide and little kids area. You could borrow racquets and play tennis, pickleball, or basketball and the cardio / weight rooms were the best I have seen at a resort.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and didn't regret our choice!!

Owner's Response: Dear Marian, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review! We are happy you enjoyed all the extra amenities and thus is what we try to do - make you feel at home ! thanks for pointing out the experience with the shower head, we will look into this immediately and replace it. It is a big rain shower head so the water is displayed more broadly.. We hope you will return to beautiful Kauai and we would be thrilled to welcome you again! Mahalo and Aloha!
