Beautiful Kiahuna Plantation Beachfront condominium resort in Sunny Poipu Beach, a vacation you will not forget. Enjoy 35 lush tropical acres situated on a gorgeous beach, which is great for sunning, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, shelling or turtle and monk seal watching.(just to name a few activities)
In a couple of minutes you can be swimming in the ocean. After a swim in the ocean you can stroll the beach and try riding a few waves, or maybe just enjoy a good book and listen to the waves. Poipu Beach Park is very close to the condo and is very safe for children to swim or snorkel, according to the Travel Channel.
Kiahuna's grounds are spectacular. Take a stroll on the paths that weave around the resort. The Moir Gardens are the perfect example of why Kauai is 'the Garden Isle.' Within minutes you will walk through the aromatic orchid garden which has many different varieties of orchids. Close to the orchid garden is the cactus garden which has beautiful cacti from around the world as well as lily ponds complete with frogs on lily pads.

Alan and I honeymooned at Kiahuna in 1997 and we fell in LOVE with Kauai and Kiahuna. We are both runners and we love running on the path by the ocean up to Spouting Horn. Such beautiful scenery. We kept coming back year after year and on our 10 year anniversary we decided we had to have our own piece of paradise. We love our home away from home. We are sure you will LOVE Kiahuna and Kauai as much as we do and want to come back again and again.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2007
The proximity to the ocean was ideal. We had stayed at other locations and you just can't beat the fact that Kiahuna is located right on the beach . The weather in Poipu is perfect, that is why they call it 'Sunny Poipu.'
One of my favorite things to do is swim in the ocean at Kiahuna beach. Often I will be out there with turtles and monk seals. Alan loves to spend his time on the 'Great Lawn' reading under a coconut tree. Both of us love to run to Spouting Horn.
We so enjoyed our stay at #80 kiahuna Plantation. The condo unit is so pleasant but the bed was absolutely heavenly, especially after the long flight from the mainland. We hiked the Kalalau trail on the Napali Coast. We made it to the Hanakoa Falls and then retreated back to our car. Outstanding hike. Resting up the next day around the plantation and then a sunset dinner at the Beach House, was a great finish. We'll be back.
We had a wonderful stay on south shore here after several days on north shore. The weather was perfect and the unit allowed great walking access to several beautiful beaches. We also enjoyed access to pool at beach club, with also has a bar for drinks and food. We've stayed at the Sheraton with our children in the past and have to say that Kiahuna is so much more relaxing and "luxurious" to have all the extra space and a kitchen when traveling with young kids. The lawn right off the back of the unit is great for playing frisbee, ball, or just relaxing. The unit is nicely updated, bright, and comfortable. We would definitely come back here in future. Thank you Alan and Denise for the very helpful travel tips and recommendations in the Gazette newsletter.
My husband and I spent a relaxing, wonderful week at the Kiahuna Plantation. The owners of this unit have obviously spent considerable time and money to furnish and decorate their apartment. The unit is very beautiful, tasteful and comfortable. The location is ideal - a three minute walk to the beach and a six minute walk to the pool. It is also within easy walking distance to the Plantation Gardens restaurant, and the mall for additional restaurants and shopping. We took a Napali coast tour out of Port Allen which was a lot of fun and also toured the Waimea canyon from this location. We also saw monk seals on the Kiahuna beach daily. The ground floor location was perfect for enjoying the large grassy yard (a great place for kids to play) and quick access to the BBQ. The owner of this property is very easy to rent from with excellent communication and also has a gazette of information to ensure guests are aware of nearby activities. We would highly recommend the Plantation Gardens restaurant (especially the Passionfruit cheesecake) and Josselin's Tapas Bar. Overall we had a perfect, relaxing week which was just toooo short!! We highly recommend this rental to other vacationers.
Just got back to reality after the time of our lives in Kauai. We’re both well traveled, but this was our first time in Kauai and we are SO glad we went the route of a comfortable 1BR condo unit with the breathtaking location that Kiahuna Plantation offers. And this bungalow is a treat. Spacious unit with high ceilings … well decorated, and offers a fully equipped / accessory stocked kitchen. The rear opens up to an endless lawn adorned with flowering trees – a space our 2 year old loved to frolic about upon. The pool at the swim / tennis club and the public beach at Poipu are also terrific for little ones. Location is super: a short walk to the breaking waves, Eating and shopping are a brief stroll out the back door. The owners maintained a self-published "Gazette" -- a guidebook of local resources, activities and sights to see -- which they keep up very to date. This corner of Kiahuna Plantation feels quiet and peaceful, well shaded with lush vegetation and tall trees. At night all you hear is the wind through the trees. If you do a pre-dawn stroll down to the beach, you feel like you have the island to yourself. We look forward to going back!
Kiahuna 80 was a great place to vacation on Kauai! The condo's beach was very accessible-- a short, pleasant walk through the well-manicured grounds, and Poipu Beach (guarded beach, with facilities & great snorkeling) was also a pleasant, 5 minute walk away, or very short drive (plenty of parking there).
The condo listing description was very accurate, and I was more than pleased with the accommodations, as well as the price. I was a little hesitant about renting at Kiahuna, because of some of the negative reviews I read, but clearly they were written by people who are disgruntled by life in general! The trade winds make air conditioning unnecessary, and the proximity to Poipu Road was not at all disturbing. The pool is across the street, but who goes all the way to Hawaii to swim in a pool, anyway? The Sheraton (next-door) didn't seem to care if we hopped in their beachfront pool (not that the owners probably can endorse this plan, lol).
The place was very clean, supplies were more than adequate, and the condo's furnishing were very complete, right down a curling iron, blow dryer, and travel coffee mug!!
The owners were very helpful in answering all of my numerous questions, and made lots of helpful suggestions.
Plantation Gardens has excellent food for fine dining, and Keoki's Paradise across the street is a great atmosphere, with solid food choices. The Sheraton's appetizers were so-so, and their drinks were weak--instead, I'd recommend watching the sunset from Poipu Beach, and getting a drink at the Marriott's outdoor bar. Sheraton did have a very extensive & tasty breakfast buffet, however.
As far as activities go, if you have the physical ability, I would highly recommend hiking the first two miles of the Kalalau Trail--what an exhilirating experience! Napali Seabreeze catamaran tour was great, and the captain was not only informative, but safety-conscious.
I would highly recommend this condo rental!
Where to start? We just got home from an amazing 8 night trip to Kiahuna Plantations, unit #80. We found our condo to be very welcoming, tastefully decorated, stocked with the essentials and in a great location. The grounds of the Kiahuna are amazing. Fully mature plantings, flowering trees everywhere and the wonderful aromas of a tropical isle. We used Denise and Alan's "Gazette" for most of our adventures and found their recommendations to be spot on. We ate every breakfast/lunch in the condo and grilled a few dinners of fresh fish on the BBQ. The weather was sunny the majority of our time there. Of course, there were a few obligatory rain showers, but it's necessary to maintain the lushness of the island and worth the short wait under cover to be surrounded by such beauty. While we were there, the local paper had on it's front page that Kauai had won the "Best Hawaiian Island" for the second year in a row. I would have to agree! It was my favorite family vacation thus far! It's perfect for families or couples looking for a laid back, relaxed vacation in a beautiful setting.
Mahalo to the owners, Denise and Alan!
This is the 2nd year my family has stayed in the condo, and let's just say we plan to come back every year. It's the perfect condo! The lanai opens to rolling green hills, tropical plants and a nearby BBQ. The unit is towards the back, so it makes you walk the few yards to the ocean but this was one of my favorite parts - makes you slow down and enjoy the tropical landscaping every day! The unit is stocked with everything you need. The bathroom was recently renovated and beautiful. The sofa bed could be more comfortable but I recently learned they have new furniture including a sofa bed. Can't wait to come back!!!
