Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, one bath, sleeps four

Enjoy the tranquility of Kiahuna Plantation at this updated one bedroom with soaring ceilings in the main living room. It comfortably sleeps four with a king size bed in the bedroom and a hide-a-bed in the living room. Since the unit is located on the third floor of Building 38, you will have an expansive view of the historic Moir Cactus Garden and a glimpse of the ocean as you relax on the lanai listening to the chorus of tropical birds. The Kiahuna Plantation is sited on 35 acres of lush green grass, beautiful swaying palm trees, exotic flowers and koi ponds. The orchid garden next to the Moir Plantation house is home to hundreds of orchid plants that are in continuous bloom. Walk a few steps to the activity hut where you can pick up your complementary towels and beach chairs and stake out your spot on the beach. If you need some time away from the ocean, than take a short stroll to the private pool. World class golf is also in close proximity as is shopping and dining in the heart of Poipu. If you are looking for adventure, try hiking in the Waimea Canyon, kayaking the Wailua River, snorkeling off the 'forbidden island', sailing the NaPali coastline, chartering a deep sea fishing trip, or spotting whales in season.

Kauai is truly a 'garden island' paradise and Poipu is the ideal place on the island from which to either wind down from the stress of mainland living or experience activities unique to Kauai. Our unit can be your home away from home as you experience paradise the way you want to.

About Bill and Kim Zeiner

We made our first trip to Kauai in 1998 and fell in love with the 'garden island' which is why we return every year. We come here to enjoy the island's natural beauty, the 'laid back' way of life, the miles of pristine beaches, the multitude of fine..yet casual... dining experiences, the art galleries and fine shops, the world class golf, viewing the NaPali coast and Waimea canyon, but mostly getting away from the 'real' world. We have spent time on all islands that are Hawaii, but Kauai remains our favorite since we love all things unique to this island.

Bill and Kim Zeiner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bill and Kim Zeiner chose Kauai

We wanted to own a piece of paradise that was on a great beach, close to some of our favorite restaurants and shops, be located on the 'sunny' side of the island, and offer a lifestyle free from the 'maddening crowds'. Poipu was a natural for us.... Kiahuna Plantation allows us to spend time in Poipu with an 'old Hawaii' feel to it since its landscaping and tropical, cooling breezes provide a natural charm, but still offers the amenities we desire while on vacation. In 2015, we installed all new furniture throughout the unit and selected artwork which we feel captures the essence of Kauai. We also added a large smart TV as well as a new microwave. We feel our unit provides tremendous comfort and pride of ownership.

What makes this condo unique

When we vacation, we are looking for peaceful comfort as well as immediate access to the activities we enjoy. We love being on the top floor for the quiet as well as the view from the lanai. If we desire to dine in, a full kitchen provides that opportunity, but we also want access to great restaurants without long drives. Poipu Beach is one of the world's top rated beaches, but yet it is not 'blanket to blanket' crowded. The sunsets at Poipu are also a spectacular show of nature, and the best viewing spots are a few footsteps away. We will never stay in a hotel room again on our annual trips to Kauai since this unit gives us the space, comfort, quiet, and amenities we expect.

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at Kiahuna a few times over the years and always at different units across the property. We were very pleased with the unit & would definitely stay again. Although they don't advertise an ocean view, they absolutely could as it's much more of a view than some hotels we've stayed in that boast of a barely there view. The gardens below were lovely & everything was so close & quiet. EXCEPT for the Saturday night when we couldn't sleep most of the night due to two parties happening immediately outside the back of the unit (at the restaurant & at an event venue across the garden). Through no fault of the owners, this is the only downside (thus the 4 stars & not 5). Overall, great stay, great price, great local & thank you!

Best beach ever!

  • 4 of 5

We had a blast staying at the Kiahuna Plantation. The resort is older but well maintained with gorgeous ponds and gardens. The condo was toward the back of the resort, which was totally fine and still in a short walking distance to the beach. My family thought that this was the best beach on the island, I agree. Great for swimming, boogie boarding, surfing and snorkeling. The condo was equipped with 3 boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas. The resort beach hut supplies complimentary beach towels, chairs and sand toys. They rent surf boards for $10/HR (bring wax, they are super slick).

As for the condo itself, it is not huge but can comfortably fit a family of four. The kitchen had enough cookware to get by, but that's it. Bring your own trash bags! The resort charges 10/day to take out your trash and change towels. So either plan for that cost or use towels wisely. I hope to be able to come back to the island soon, would definitely stay at this condo again.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We do try to provide beach amenities for guests that may be hard to find at the beach hut. I wish, as an owner, I had more control over what the management company charges for towels and cleaning, but since there are only two management companies on site, owners have little control over that facet of Kiahuna. I hope you return to paradise soon.

Perfect place to stay at Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in your condo and hopefully we will be able to book it for a longer stay next year. Your tasteful decor and many extra thoughtful touches made for an extra special stay. We come to Kaua'i every year to run in the Kaua'i Half Marathon and your lovely condo is by far our favorite. Mahalo nui for sharing.

Beautiful property in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We are leaving Poipu today, and can't say enough how much we enjoyed staying at the property. The Plantation is beautiful and in a perfect location. Walking distance to lots of conveniences, the fantastic beach is steps away--great for boogie boarding, surfing, swimming, and the unit itself is clean, loaded with amenities, all in working order. There is no a/c, but it wasn't a problem. The unit has ceiling fans and there is a constant breeze flowing through. The pool is very close by and the facilities are very nice. My only criticism is the cleaning fee due at Checkin: If there is any way that that could be paid ahead of time would be convenient...but that is merely a pet peeve of mine. I like all payments settled ahead of time. Hope you all enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Comfortable and enjoyable holiday unit

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable bed meant good sleeps. And the layout and other furnishings were also comfortable and in good condition.

The listing description was accurate enough. The property was clean and reasonably well-maintained. Only negative was could do with better lighting at dining table and generally for reading at night. Appreciated the selection of reading material, including various travel guides to Kauai.

The is a wonderful unit; perfect location to everything you need and more.

The unit has high quality furnishings, from living room to bedroom with soft silky sheet linens. Mattress and pillows are excellent as well. You will not be disappointed if you choose this unit. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer. The beach is within walking distance which was so important to us.

We would definitely choose this unit again.

Thank you Bill & Kim

Waimea Canyon
Na Pali Coast State Park
Poipu Kauai hawaii
Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course

Poipu is considered the 'dry' side of the island with a great beach merely steps from this unit. Just a short drive away is Port Allen where Holoholo Charters can take you on a breathtaking charter to the NaPali Coast or snorkeling off the coast of the 'forbidden island.' An absolutely breathtaking drive awaits you up the winding road of the Waimea Canyon with a multitude of overlooks offering views of waterfalls, mountain goats, and soaring vistas of the canyon. For the golfers, access to great courses are either steps or a short drive away. Kayakers have fresh water rivers within an easy drive: paddle the Wailua River and hike a short ways to the 'hidden' waterfall.
