About the property

2 Bdrm/2 Bath Great Ocean View Condo Poipu Beach Koloa South Shore Kauai

BLDG 34, UNIT #211 *Pricing INCLUDES housekeeping charges. NO extra charges after you book.

FULLY remodeled Fall 2015. You can clearly see waves breaking from this condo. YOU ARE NOT OVERLOOKING A PARKING LOT!! With the fresh water lagoon also in view this location is ideal. One of the best on property! You can WALK to Poipu Beach! Gorgeous green lawns and tropical landscapes surround property.

The Kiahuna Plantation Resort's unique beauty and sandy beach make it the perfect location on Kauai's south shore for families, honeymooners, friends gathering, weddings, surf trips and a home base for any island excursions.

Steps to the sand. THIS IS THE ONLY BEACHFRONT CONDO RESORT OWNER DIRECT VACATION RENTAL IN POIPU AREA ON A SANDY BEACH. Many properties in Hawaii have nice views but are on cliffs or far from a sandy beach. Here you can WALK to the sand! This resort is located on the south shore of Kauai which is the SUNNY side of the island and has more sunshine and nice weather than any other part of the island. This ocean view unit has one of the nicest locations on the Kiahuna property.

The amazing view from both the upstairs and downstairs lanai 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 and no cars are visible or parked nearby. It is all garden and water.

This unit is comfortable for guests of all ages. The beach in front of the condo is great for snorkelers, sunbathers, kids 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 the wonderful view. When or if you tire of going out to all the great nearby restaurants, the kitchen is well supplied with everything but the food for cooking meals. Or, you can relax and enjoy the immaculate, well maintained outdoor gas BBQs close by and picnic tables.

Downstairs there is a master suite with attached bath. The master also has its own lanai, ocean view, and 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. There is also a very comfortable queen bed inside the sofa. Portacrib and safety gate available in unit.

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 guest beach hut and showers 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. There's even a Starbucks. We love Keoki's Paradise with it's open air seating and live music at the bar. At Poipu Shopping village there's plenty of shopping! You can also travel a short distance west to Kukui'ula for more stores and restaurants.

There are also several grocery stores for stocking up your condo and buying gifts. The famous Brennecke's beach is just a short distance away. At the new mall, Kukui'ula, you can find Living Foods, a fabulous natural foods grocer and deli.

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 Jennifer

I have been visiting the Kiahuna Plantation for many years now. Every time I return it feels like home. There are many beautiful plantation buildings in the complex but I believe this spot is one of the best. The view of the surf is spectacular. If you are so inclined to surf, you can literally check it from the living room with your coffee and walk to the beach from the unit. Watching the Tilapia and the bird life in the fresh water lagoon right in front is very relaxing and entertaining. Kauai will capture your heart and this place will be your home away from home.

Jennifer purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer chose Kauai

The Kiahuna Plantation resort is unique to all the islands. It is not a hotel or a time share. Each condominium is privately owned. 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 SANDY 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 (either one or two bedroom) and similar interior design but every location within the Kiahuna is different. Some are better than others! Be selective!

THIS CONDO JUST UNDERWENT FULL REMODEL OCTOBER 2015!! Some units are noisier than others, some have more pedestrian and car traffic than others, some have more privacy than others and some of them have not been updated in years. It's important to work directly with an owner to know exactly what you are getting! THIS UNIT IS QUIET, NOT OVER A PARKING LOT AND NEWLY REMODELED.

When this unit came up for sale, I knew from staying at the Kiahuna many times that I had found something special. This condo has a breathtaking view of the ocean and yet it is far enough from the busy beach, parking lots and road traffic to be very quiet and serene. Nobody walks or drives in front of the condo giving a very private feel, even in crowded times of the year.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a minute's walk to the famous Poipu 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 near to the condo, although just far enough away to not be in view or 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. FULL REMODEL AND REFURNISHING FALL 2015

* NOTE: any condos not rented directly from owner, there is no guarantee on which unit you get or its condition.

Relaxing spring break

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Kiahuna Plantation. My husband and I along with our 2 teenagers agree that it was a great trip. Our condo was perfect for us and we loved the location and views. Poipu beach was beautiful and our kids enjoyed taking surf lessons. We were conveniently located to many shops and restaurants. We would definitely return!

Clean, Spacious, high quality

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in the condo with our 2 year old son. We've stayed at other Kiahuna plantation condos as well and several VRBO sites in other locations. This one is spacious and does have a nice view of the ocean. It's clean and modern. The beds were soft and comfortable. Wifi was strong. If I had any fault for this place it would be that it does not feel personalized but more like a hotel's condo. There are no spices to cook with, no boardgames to play, no DVD collection. There was one jigsaw puzzle which we enjoyed. There were a few books. Some people may appreciate the "blank slate" but we prefer having the feeling that we're guests in someone else's home. That said, I would not hesitate to stay here again as this place has all the essentials to make it your own. We enjoyed the pool as well and the closeness to the Poipu Shopping Center.

Owner's Response: Thank you so kindly for taking the time to give your honest review. I take your suggestions to heart and will be at the condo myself in a month. I will stock up on some board games, puzzles, a few good family movies and some more books. Great suggestions. As for the spices, because this place is in Hawaii in a very humid environment with dampness, heat and bugs always a challenge, it is impossible to store and keep anything edible in the kitchen for any length of time. This condo is NOT a person's home. No one lives there. It is always occupied by new and different guests just as all the condos at the Kiahuna are because it is, in fact, a vacation resort! If it were my own home and I was there off and on between guests I would definitely leave spices to share that I could take care of regularly. Things go stale very quickly, especially if lids are not replaced properly. I also have the challenge of the housekeeping staff cleaning things out, even if I wanted to leave something behind! The small local general store walking distance across the street sells small quantities in little bags of wonderful, locally packaged spices for that very reason: to provide an option for travelers so they don't have to buy larger containers. I can also suggest to future travelers that they bring their favorites from home to use while there. Thank you again for your helpfulness.

Lovely Condo in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spacious and clean and perfectly situated for a view of the ocean over a picturesque lagoon. There is a pretty botanical garden steps from the condo and it's a three minute walk to the beach. Lots of shops, coffee and good restaurants nearby; it's a quick drive, but be sure to take the stunning walk along the beach, past the Sheraton and up to the shops at Kukui'ula. Our teen son took surfing lessons on the Kiahuna stretch of beach - a big hit. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets on the beach every evening. We loved Kauai and look forward to going back some day!

Amazing Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly located. Only a few steps to the beach, which offered amazing snorkeling, sunbathing, surfing, and super friendly people. A few steps the other direction are markets, restaurants, shops, and surf rentals. The BBQ was conveniently located and cleaned daily. It was fun meeting people and chatting as we grilled dinner. The condo had the most beautiful view of the pond and beach. There was a lovely ocean breeze throughout the condo. The condo was very comfortable, clean, and perfect for our family of six. I think my favorite part about staying there besides the amazing location were the lush gardens that surrounded the property. The smell of all the different flowers and trees was beautifully aromatic. I would highly recommend staying here and I will for sure stay here again when I return!
