POIPU BEACH - UPGRADED 2-BR, 2-BA CONDO - FREE POOL, TENNIS & FITNESS CENTER

Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Kiahuna Plantation is a low density beach front Condo Resort, the only one on sunny Poipu Beach. Contact owner for best price, as little as $41.50 per person/per night, based on maximum occupancy. Internet connection, the pool and tennis are FREE for our guests. The pool, next to the tennis courts, has re-opened on December 23, 2013. If you book with or through OUTRIGGER, you probably will have NO ACCESS to the pool or tennis courts.

Call 562-691-3643 or e-mail to vbauerle@rugart.com to determine if you qualify for our Family & Friends Rate, which is not advertised.

New Legislation. Starting July 1, 2012, a new law HB 2078 regarding rental properties has been in effect. This law requires out of-state owners, like us, to post our local agent, Roy Thompson, 808-742-2200, and our Hawaiian Transient Accommodations Registration No. W40955782-01.

Volker & Regina Bauerle, the owners of the 2-BR, 2-BA Condo, will handle all the booking via e-mail vbauerle@rugart.com, or by phone 562-691-3643. A superior Management Company with an office at the Kiahuna Plantation manages our unit.

Nestled within 35 acres of lush lawns and tropical gardens are plantation style buildings, no higher than a palm tree. Our unit is open and airy due to large sliding doors and windows with louvers that open to catch the cooling Hawaiian tradewinds.

The master bedroom on the first floor features a King Bed, 2 night stands, a separate dressing room and full bath with tub. The master bath has been renovated in October 2012. A dresser - with a TV on top - and 2 large closets are provided for your clothes including a safe for valuables. A 6' sliding door leads to your private lanai with 2 lounges and a chair & table where you can relax with a good book and listen to the birds sing.

In January 2013, new Island Shutters have been installed in the master bedroom for your privacy.

Our 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds, a night stand, a large dresser and a closet. The guest bathroom, which has been totally renovated in August 2012, is off the hall featuring a large enclosed shower, with a sink inside a cabinet with a granite top.

On the 2nd. floor, the living/dining room (great room) is spacious (20' x 24'). The full-service kitchen was recently updated with new cabinets, a stove, microwave dishwasher and refrigerator. Even a small oven is provided for warming up bread, or making toast. An electric coffee machine, mixer to make your tropical drinks & smoothies, and all the dishes, pots and utensils you need are provided.

Next to the kitchen is the dining area with a glass top table and 6 chairs. 2 people can sleep on the pull-out couch in the living room, which has been re-upholstered -- together with 2 wicker chairs - in 2012. The 42' LCD TV sits on top of a dresser with FREE cable provided, including FREE Internet service for your computer.

The drapes in the great room have been replaced in January 2013 with off-white Island Shutters.

Your private balcony is right outside the living room, where you can - if you like - eat most of your meals, like we do, to save money. We usually shop at Costco in Lihue. They have a large variety of fish, sushi & sashimi, appetizers, and ready-made meals, including wines & spirits available. The Lihue Costco features more products than our local Costco in California. There is ample room for 6 people to eat, using the round table & chairs on the balcony. In addition, you can also relax on a lounging chair and sip your favorite drink while watching the colorful birds in the huge, 100 year old monkey-pod tree facing the balcony. We especially like the red-crested cardinals. They'll eat right out of your hands.

In April 2013, the entry and the kitchen tile has been replaced with 16'x16' tiles, installed in a diamond pattern.

A new barbeque below our property will help you get quick, cost-efficient meals on your table. Even a hamburger or hot dog tastes better from the BBQ at the Kiahuna Plantation than at home.

However, if you prefer eating out and you don't want to drive, here are some of your choices: The Plantation Gardens Restaurant is right around the corner from our building. Across the street at the Kiahuna Shopping Center are 4 places to eat. There is upscale Roy's Poipu Bar & Grill. Medium priced Keoki's Paradise with open air dining is a favorite. If you're a hamburger fan, go to Tropical Burgers at the NE corner of the shopping center. Or eat a Puka Dog (next door to the Tropical Burgers restaurant) with a choice of unusual toppings.

One of the newest additions for fine dining is a mile west of our complex at the Kukui'ula Village in Koloa. Merriman's is good, but pricy. Our favorite for special occasions is Josselin's Bar & Grill, right across from Merriman's. Jean Marie Josselin used to be the owner/chef of A Pacific Cafe in Kapaa, possibly the best restaurant in Hawaii. Unfortunately it closed a few years ago. We were pleasantly surprised when our favorite chef opened his new restaurant in 2010. You got to try the Lychee Sangria. It is out of this world, made with white wine (not red like your typical sangria) plus secret ingredients. One of the staff members gave us the recipe for this killer drink. We now serve it at our home to special guests. Everybody raves about it.

If you like Mexican food, the Kukui'ula Village recently opened a restaurant that takes care of your cravings. Our grandson and friend told us that the food and atmosphere is better than at Mexican restaurants in California.

Around the Kiahuna Plantation property you find a multitude of beautiful blossoms and colorful foliage. Take in the aromas of sweet plumerias, orchids and hibiscus. Watch the palms gracefully swaying in the breeze, and find flowers, trees and shrubs you may have never seen before.

The Moir Cactus Garden is another spectacular attraction on the resort grounds, created almost 80 years ago. You'll discover that this Condo Resort is so much more relaxing than similar places on Oahu and Mauai with their hustle and bustle.

Serene and uncrowded, a short walk from our condo will lead you to the best swimming beach on Kauai. Feel the warm white sand sift through your toes as the Hawaiian sun embraces you. Gaze at the brilliant blue waters of Poipu Beach and watch as the sunrays dance on the waves. You can go surfing, boogie-boarding, snorkeling, sunbathing, or reading a good book under a palm tree in the vast lawn facing the ocean. Free towels and beach chairs are provided at the Beach Hut for our guests. Surf-and boogie boards are available for rental. Surf lessons are also available.

The famous Poipu Bay Golf Course, former site of the annual Grand Slam tournament, is 2 miles east, next to the Hyatt Poipu Hotel. The Kiahuna Golf Course is just north of our property. Other great golf courses are nearby. As one of our guests we'll reveal the name and location of a little-known golf course where you can play for less than $30. If you're interested, just ask us.

Many other fun things, like horseback riding, scuba diving, windsurfing, etc. are available all year around. If you like hiking, we can help you find the perfect trails. You can reach the Waimea Canyon in about an hour by car. Mark Twain called it 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.'

As you can see, there is simply no shortage of things to do, including helicopter rides around this amazing island. Make your plans today and we'll help you have the greatest vacation of your lifetime.

My wife Gina and I love to travel to exotic destinations. We've visited Tahiti and neighboring islands 7 times, and the Fijian islands 3 times. We also took cruises in the South Pacific, Mexico, Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Scandinavian countries including Russia.

We've been in Oahu, Maui and the Big Island, but avoided Kauai because we heard it is the wettest spot on earth. However, once we found out that the Poipu Beach area only gets about 35 inches a year, we booked a trip. When we discovered Kiahuna Plantation, we knew that this 'Special Place' was our own personal Paradise.

We've been operating our own Carpet & Interior Store since 1963. At times it was so hectic, the only thing to keep us from going out of our mind was our condo in Kauai. A couple of weeks at this healing island (people call it the Garden Island and Healing Island) helped recharge our batteries.

In 1987 we got tired of selling the same old regular carpets. That's when we developed a system to create one-of-a-kind carpets matching each client's decor. Home-and business owners loved it.

In 1991 we opened a hands-on workshop to teach our secret craft to entrepreneurs from the US, Canada, Singapore, the UK & Ireland, Saudi Arabia... Over 600 individuals were trained and they now operate their own business offering custom carpets in their areas.

Most of our annual conventions were conducted at the Kiahuna Plantation. Our Affiliates just loved this wonderful place, almost as much as us.

Daily we enjoy our 4-5 minute walk to Poipu Beach. We find a shady spot under a palm tree in the lush lawn facing the ocean and read a book.

Besides playing tennis or reading a good book, swimming & snorkeling are one of our favorite things to do. We also enjoy longer hikes up in the mountains, or along the beach. Grilling local fresh fish or meat on the BBQ below our property is more satisfying to us than spending a lot of money at restaurants.

Volker Bauerle purchased this condo in 1985

Our first visit to Kiahuna Plantation was in August 1980. A friend raved about this 'Special Place' (translation of 'Kiahuna') because of its beautifully landscaped property and the spectacular Tennis Club. That's exactly what we were looking for.

You see, my wife Gina's brother, sister-in-law and their son visited us from Germany, And since their son Wolfi Leitner, was the Bavarian Junior Tennis Champion (later to be selected to the German Junior Davis Cup with Boris Becker, Michael Stich...), we wanted to treat our guests to the finest.

On first sight we fell in love with this low-key condo complex. Everybody enjoyed this special vacation...and the accommodations, the tennis, beach and the tranquility of the island made it especially memorable.

My wife and I returned 3 years later. That's when we found out that the condos were individually owned.

In January 1985 we bought unit #223 and never regretted it. Ron, our oldest son, celebrated his 30th. and 40th. birthday, together with his family. Our oldest granddaughter Cassidy, who was 2 years old when visiting for the 1st. time, spent her honeymoon with husband Ben at Kiahuna. Brothers Chase & Clay, surfed many times on Poipu Beach. Our son Ray with wife and twin girls Rachel & Robin from Houston, TX were here as well. Robert, our youngest, knows Kiahuna inside and out.

Sepp & Christa from Munich enjoyed two additional vacations with us. My sisters Dagmar & Sigrid from Stuttgart, Germany visited us while I celebrated my 50th. birthday. Marty, my brother and family love to join us in Kauai as often as possible. Many friends from California vacationed with us here and had a wonderful time.

Gina and I usually visit Kiahuna twice a year, in May and October. We've been asked: 'Don't you get tired of this place?' Our answer is 'No, we still discover new places to hang out, new hikes, waterfalls, etc.' Kiahuna Plantation is our home away from home and we can hardly wait to visit again.

It's a short walk to Poipu Beach and to the Tennis & Swim Club because our condo is right in the middle of the property. 5 restaurants including upscale Roy's can be reached by foot within 5 minutes. A Whaler's store is across the street for buying groceries, including a large selection of wines & spirits, T-shirts, sweaters, postcards, calenders & gifts. Starbucks is across the street as well, to take care of your caffeine cravings.

Less than a mile is the new Kukui'ula Center with little shops and several restaurants. The choices range from hamburgers & hot dogs at Bubba's, to quality Mexican food, to organic, to upscale at Merryman's, to our favorite -- Josselin's Bar & Grill, specializing in 'Tapas' and 'Lychee Sangria.' You can also find a seafood restaurant that opened in October 2012...

Old Town Koloa is a couple of miles away with its quaint shops, markets and restaurants.

Less than a mile from our condo you can learn how to scuba dive and get licensed.

Thank You For The Opportunity To Rent Your Condo

I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to rent your condo last month. We had a great time and our comfortable accommodations made our trip so much more relaxing and enjoyable. We loved Kauai and cannot wait to visit again and hopefully stay again at the Plantation! The gift basket was such a great welcome gift that we all enjoyed too. Thanks again for everything. Take care, Kelly and Lacey Ross.

Gina and Volker Bauerle are the excellent hosts of this spacious condo. They were very helpful prior to our trip, giving us many recommendations for places to eat and shop. We enjoyed a large gift basket of yummy goodies they sent on our arrival. We were two couples and found the space more than adequate for our needs. It is clean, well kept, and recently renovated. The photos show the condo accurately. The location could not have been better. The property is adjacent to the ocean with a nice sandy beach. Many restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. My only reservation is this property is multi level with no restroom on the main floor. This wasn't an issue for me when I booked it, but I later injured my knee and found all the stairs difficult.

Loved The Location And Spacious Size Of Your Condo

  • Submitted: Dec 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Hello Volker and Gina,
Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your condo in Kauai. It was our first visit to the island and we loved it. The location and size of your condo made the trip so relaxing. As much as we loved being out and about at the beach or visiting sites, it was nice to come back to your lovely spacious condo to relax and also to be able to eat many of our meals there. The redone bathrooms/kitchen and tile are beautiful. Thank you for the fruit basket, our daughter in particular was thrilled to try the apple bananas and lychee fruits.

Thanks for your directions and tips on groceries and restaurants. You clearly love sharing all of your "secrets" with those who've never been to your little paradise before.

Best Wishes,

Patty S. and family

Volker & Gina, you have a beautiful place, great location just a short walk to beach 5 min through beautiful grounds and then only 5 min walk across street to the mall for every thing we needed and a great fun restaurant /bar with entertainment Keokis. No need for air, the ceiling fans work great. The tennis courts across the street are nice, the pool is also across the street which is fine it could use a little up dating but over all nice, FYI the restaurant at the tennis courts and swimming pool has been closed for quite some time not to reopen any time soon. we loved the larger Lanai and spend many night just sitting there looking at the beautiful grounds, the cactus gardens are the best I have every seen . We will rent is unit again it was excellent

Aloha Volker!
What a beautiful condo you have. Our family has loved our time here. Everything is very comfortable and quiet here. The location is perfect!
Many thanks to you and Gina for being such wonderful hosts. We received a lovely fruit and goody basket our first day here that we have greatly enjoyed. All the suggestions you sent were very much appreciated. We stopped at Costco and among other things bought a bottle of Chawarra wine. We enjoyed it in the evenings. Sadly they did not have the cioppino but we did find some other things. Dinner at Keoki's was wonderful!

Mahalo!

Kiahuna Plantation is the only condo resort that has its own beach at Poipu Beach. Swimming, snorkling, surfing, paddle boarding, or just relaxing on the big lawn with a good book, facing the ocean are some of the attractions that travelers enjoy. Nearby is a diving school where you can get certified. On the premises is a restaurant and 4 more across the street from Kiahuna Plantation. Unlike other places, tennis is FREE for our guests. Our pool, next to the tennis courts, is also open again since December 23, 2013.
