About Randy Nordstrom

We just LOVE Kiahuna. It's our favorite vacation spot in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. Loved the condo. We had everyone over for a meal, from two other units, and they all were very impressed with your place and how bright and beautiful it was. They preferred it of all of the units. Also the cross breeze in your unit was very nice. The property was so nice and we all really enjoyed it. We spent quite a bit of time at the beach which was so much fun - especially for the kids from each family. I will leave a review in the Vrbo site shortly. We hope to go again soon and if we do we will get in touch with you to see if your condo is available.

Thanks again so much for the great communication and letting us visit your home.

Kiahuna ground floor #39 steps to beach - GREAT location, FABULOUS condo
average rating of 4.857143 based on 151 reviews

#39 is absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

#39 is everything we could ask for staying in Kauai (and at the perfect beach in Poipu!). It's open and bright and has perfect cross winds as a corner unit. Even when you are in the condo getting your little ones ready, or taking a break from direct sun, you still get warm breezes and know you are in Kauai.

Its updated appliances make it easy to decide to cook an evening or two and still feel like a vacation.

The lanai is perfect in its view of the gardens, yet set away so you it is quiet enough to fall asleep listening to the birds.

At the same time it is so close to the beach. Easy to carry bits of gear and run back if you forget anything.

The owners are so attentive and helpful.

I highly recommend this location, this condo and these owners. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful unit and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was lovely and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The owner was very cordial and answered promptly any questions we had. It was a great place to celebrate our 55th wedding anniversary! :-) If we are fortunate to have the opportunity to return to Kauai, we would definitely love to stay in Randy's condo at Kiahuna Plantation again.

Amazing condo with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

After extensive searching for a unit on the Kiahuna property we came across this gem, the owner is super attentive and answered every question we had. This unit is located just a short walk from the beach, and it's location is great, as it's a corner unit with lots of privacy and very well decorated, extremely clean and well appointed inside. The kitchen has every utensil and appliance to make meals and the owner even provides swimming and snorkeling gear to use. It was definitely a pleasant surprise. We will try to book again, however since we've stayed here we noticed this unit is booked well in advance. Clearly this one is a winner. Thank you Randy for the wonderful experience in Kauai and in your beautiful home.

Well appointed and wonderfully located

  • 5 of 5

Kiahuna #39 is absolutely wonderful!!! We spent our 2 week honeymoon there the first 2 weeks of January. Poipu Beach greeted us with a fireworks display New Year's Eve night upon our arrival. It was spectacular watching the fireworks over the ocean. Kiahuna #39's location was perfect for all we wanted to explore on the south and west sides of Kauai and in Waimea Canyon. There was so much for us to do that we ran out of time to make it to the North Shore ... next trip!!!

Watching the sunset and grilling on green at Kiahuna were special memories of the staying at Kiahuna Plantation. We were able to enjoy many beaches within easy walking distance from the condo ... Kiahuna Beach, Poipu Beach and Brennecke's Beach. We also walked to Shipwreck Beach and beyond.

Kiahuna #39 is very well appointed. We love to cook in on vacation and it had everything we needed ... including many glass storage containers with lids for us to store leftovers!!! The unit also surprisingly had boogie boards, sand buckets, beach umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, a small cooler for day trips, frozen ice packs for the cooler, ... The cooler came in especially handy for all our day trips.

Working with Randy, the owner, was an added benefit prior to our trip.
