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!
