About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.

Our non-smoking ground level condo, Beachhouse #80 in building 15, is typical island comfort and style with the niceties of home. We have new bedroom furniture with a King size bed. Our shower was just remodeled in 2009 with corian. We have a NEW 40 inch HD-LCD Flat screen TV in the living room, 2014. We just put in NEW living and dining room furniture, May 2010. Our kitchen was just remodeled in September of 2012. We put new flooring in in 2013. Walk out onto the lanai and step on the perfectly manicured lush green lawn, perfect for picnics or little ones to run around and play. Enjoy birds chirping and smell the heavenly flora while enjoying a delicious meal on the lanai. A gas BBQ grill, footsteps from your back-door, make meal preparation easy if you want to take advantage of the island lifestyle. If you don't feel like cooking, take a short walk over to Plantation Gardens for fabulous island cuisine as well as a great bar with island drinks.

Kiahuna Plantation is a perfect tropical paradise; it is what comes to mind when one thinks of Hawaii. This unit enhances this experience with island comfort and convenience. When you rent directly from the owners you to know where you will be staying as well as what amenities our unit offers. You still have the 24 hour management staff available if you need them.

For those guests traveling with other friends or family we have access to other neighboring ground floor 1 bedroom units. Please let us know if you need more than 1 unit.

About Denise and Alan Hart

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.

Denise and Alan Hart purchased this condo in 2007

Why Denise and Alan Hart chose Kauai

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.'

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Beautiful Haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Kauai, so were were unfamiliar with the various locations. We were absolutely thrilled with our choice in Poipu. First off, since Kauai can sometimes be rainy (hence its stunning, lush environment), we wanted one of the driest spots on the island. Being furthest south - Poipu was our choice. Kiahuna Plantation was everything - and, more! The grounds are peaceful and stunning with meandering little paths, rolling lawns, an orchid garden, a little bridge....all this as you head to the gorgeous Great Lawn at the ocean. Kiahuna #80 is set back a tiny bit on the plantation. We actually loved this because we had gorgeous grounds leading out from our patio - and, lots of quiet and privacy. It's just a 4 minute walk to the beach from our back patio. Head out the other side (the front door) and you're just a 10 minutes' walk to the lovely outdoor Poipu Shopping area. The condo has absolutely everything you need and the best part was the fabulous Gazette that the owners have prepared for guests. It has everything you could ever want to know about Kauai. We referred to it religiously for restaurants, hikes, beaches, etc. It made for a brilliant holiday! Thanks Denise and Alan. We loved our time at your beautiful little haven in paradise.

Excellent: The most comfortable place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

I visit Kiahuna every year, and every year book in this unit for it's peacefulness and convenience. This beautiful well stocked unit is located in the heart of the Kiahuna Plantation, with a beautiful lawn view out the patio door, and comfortable lounges on the patio to enjoy the afternoon sun.

It is a short walk to the great lawn and beach, Kiahuna Plantation restaurant, Poipu Shopping Village, tennis courts and pool as well as the fabulous Red Salt Restaurant located on the property next door.

For longer stays, this unit is close to the laundry and open air BBQ for home grilling and includes a Newsletter about Kauai that the owners update regularly with all the best spots to hit on your vacation.

It is the vacation I look forward to yearly to really relax.

A place in paradise..."

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! Nice comfortable king bed and tropical furnishings. We did not lack for anything..the owners have a very informative binder called the "gazette" which was incredibly helpful for finding the sights,restaurants and events in the area. Lovely grass area out in back of the condo-- (owners even offer a souvenir frisbee for you to take home.) Our days in #80 were all delightful and fun filled...we will happily return!!

Wonderful stay on south shore

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Kiahuna Kauai

  • 5 of 5

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.

Kiahuna: Great bungalo and great time on the South Shore of Kauai

  • 5 of 5

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!
