About Larissa Bonner

We are a family with two very active teenage boys and we live in a town just north of Houston, TX called The Woodlands. We began going to Kauai in about 2005 and absolutely fell in love with it on the first trip! We love spending our summers on the island hiking, snorkeling, surfing and relaxing on the beach!

Larissa Bonner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Larissa Bonner chose Kauai

Kiahuna Plantation is a gorgeous property on one of the best beaches on the island! It is walking distance from several restaurants and great shopping center.

What makes this condo unique

Kiahuna Plantation is the only beach-front condo property in Poipu and our unit has some of the best views right from the living room! The lanai is the perfect place to watch the surfers in the summer and the whales in the winter!

Great condo, good facility and stunning views

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a bit far from the main lodge and the walk to the beach, but not that big of a deal. The views from the balconies are amazing! Sitting with a cup of coffee watching waterfalls, majestic mountains, and stunning ocean is a treat.

The apartment is well furnished and has the "extra stuff" that you will need: boogie boards, tennis racquets, beach chairs, etc. Beds are comfy and it really has everything you need (including laundry). Nothing but good to say about this. Only downside (sort of) is that it is on the 3rd floor, so schlepping bags up is not great but no big deal

The resort itself is charming. The restaurant and bar is still under construction (which seems to have been a LONG time). But looks like it will be amazing when finally done.

The staff are either very nice, or short and rude. Really depends on the person. Inconsistent.

Perfect location for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family spent part of our two week Christmas holiday on Kauai in this spacious two level ocean view condo. We could not have been more delighted. From the comfortable bedrooms, including a large master suite with lanai. To the incredibly convent washer and dryer. A 2nd floor open living room/kitchen, which is set up for perfect family time. The kitchen was well stocked, including spices, for all our cooking needs. We took full advantage of the comfortable living room furniture, especially the lazy boy recliners, and enjoyed dining and lounging on the huge upstairs lanai.

The grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation are stunning, especially the orchid garden, steps from the condo front door. We loved the easy walking distance to several restaurants, shops, quick market and Starbucks. We also enjoyed lazy afternoons swimming, lounging, eating and drinking at the Poipu Beach Athletic Club. But the best part of the vacation was boogie boarding steps from our condo on Poipu Beach.

Would Not Stay Here Again

  • 2 of 5

We have booked through VRBO over 10 times with repeated stays at a couple of places. Our experiences with VRBO have all been very positive until this one. My biggest complaint is that we had cockroaches. Our family has traveled to Hawaii 7 times now and we have never seen a cockroach before this trip (I had actually never seen one alive in my life before this trip). The owner said that cockroaches are common on the islands and a "nuisance" at this resort, but I have never experienced that in any condo/hotel in Hawaii ever before. We did not even feel like we could cook here because of the roaches we saw in the kitchen. The property managers told us that they would be happy to move us to another unit (they spray all the units regularly to try and avoid this problem) IF we had booked with them. Since we booked through the owner, they said there was nothing that they could do but call the exterminator for 2 days later.

Also, the view in the photo from the condo in this listing is deceptive as it shows the beach, but they cropped out the parking lot that is right in front of the condo. There are cars in and out at all times of night and much more foot traffic than I would have thought. In addition to this, the microwave did not work, many lights were burnt out (maintenance did come fix these for us the next day) and the TV works but has large fuzzy lines down half of the TV no matter what you are watching - TV or movie. It is not as clean and nice looking as the photos make it look. The condo is in a decent location and we like the resort with the grassy area above the beach (about a 5 minute walk from the condo).

We alerted the owner of the cockroaches right away and she did get back to us, but just said that she hates cockroaches too and is sorry we had to deal with them - she did not do anything to help us or compensate us in any way. She called management to see about the exterminator, but it did not help expedite anything.

I also wanted to add that I have never left a negative review on a place that we have stayed before and again, have always had great experiences with VRBO until now, but then again, we have never had cockroaches. I saw all the positive reviews for this place so we were really excited - maybe we were just unlucky with the week we had the condo, but it definitely put a damper on our travel to Kauai.

Owner's Response: As I said in my email to you, I am truly sorry that you experienced roaches in the condo. In the two years that I have owned this condo, I have never had a complaint about insects. I did NOT say that they are a nuisance at the resort, but they are common in Hawaii. Our condo is exterminated regularly along with every other condo at the resort so when you first informed me, two days into your stay, that you saw a roach I called them to find out when it was last exterminated. They told that it had been exterminated the week before but that they had someone coming out the NEXT day to re-spray for you. Even with regular extermination, the screens have to be kept closed to keep unwanted bugs out. There are little signs on every door in the resort informing guests of this. I followed up and the exterminator did come the next day, not days later. The resort does not have an exterminator on call and, in spite of my best efforts, I could not get them there sooner. As to the picture of the view, I took that picture standing on the lanai, toward the beach. There are cars visible in the photo. I did not crop the picture, but I did focus on the view of the water. I give each of my guests my email address and phone number and ask them to please inform me of any maintenance issues because I do not live on the island and I cannot address issues if I am not aware of them. The TV was replaced today and the microwave was checked by maintenance and was found to be functioning properly. The resort has back-up appliances and I could have had them switch the TV out for you if you had told me. If you had alerted me about the bulbs being burned out, I would have had them replaced right away as well. I want each of my guests to love their stay at our condo. I have several guests who have booked return stays. I am sorry that your experience was not good and I have done all I can to address each of your complaints.

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves. It is a "ocean view" property, but I think 2 things are important to mention about the location:

1. There is a restaurant/banquet room in front of the condo. The banquet room has a large outdoor area (set out for weddings/banquets and people to socialize afterwards). There is also a large balcony that faces the front door of the condo. The weddings on the lawn were great during the day, but the after parties at night were extremely loud and I believe there was an event every night, but one during our stay.

2. There is a public parking lot and public bathrooms for the beach between the condo and the beach. There was a bit more foot traffic and not as private as I thought.

great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 month year old baby and the in-laws. The place is great, bedrooms in the bottom floor and living room and kitchen upstairs with ocean and pond views. We love the Kiahuna Plantation resort, authentic Hawaii! Thanks
