Kauai Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bdrm/2 Bath Ocean View Condo. Spectacular View!

BLDG 34, UNIT #211

A lot of people ask if the pictures above of the view from the condo are real or not. Yes, they are real--they were taken with iphones. As you can see, the condo has a wonderful view of the ocean from both the upstairs and the master bedroom. Perfect for your relaxing holiday!

The Kiahuna Plantation's unique beauty and sandy beach make it the perfect location on Kauai's south shore for honeymooners, families, friends gathering, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays.

We think this ocean view unit has one of the nicest locations at the Kiahuna property. The amazing view from both the upstairs and downstairs looks out over the lagoon, a garden/lawn and the blue, blue ocean. Although it is only a minute's walk to the beach, it has a very peaceful and private feel. No one walks in front of the unit and no cars are visible or parked nearby. It is all garden and water.

This unit is comfortable for babies to centurions. The beach out in front of the condo is great for snorkelers, sunbathers, kids of all ages and beginning to advanced surfers. Wonderful gardens, comfortable pathways and open grassy lawns abound at the Kiahuna making it easy to walk in just your flip flops or even barefoot!

The unit itself is spacious,comfortable and clean. Upstairs has the main living area and the fully equipped kitchen, both with a wonderful view. The kitchen is ready for use when you are tired of going out to all the great nearby restaurants. Or, you can relax and enjoy the outdoor barbeques close by. The whole upstairs is a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the view and ocean breezes.

Downstairs there is a master suite with attached bath. The master also has a wonderful ocean view and it's own TV. The second bedroom, on the garden side of the condo has two twin beds that can convert to a king. The second bath is next to the second bedroom.

Every activity there is to do in Hawaii can be done right from this unit. If not at the Kiahuna, then just a short walk or drive away. Sailing,fishing,sightseeing, hiking, anything on the ocean-- paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing (two nice breaks right in front of the Kiahuna), snorkeling, diving or just floating with cocktail in hand! There is a beach hut and showers right close to the condo. The beach hut can get you everything you need for the beach: towels,chairs,sunscreen snorkeling gear and even sand castle building supplies!

Local activities all within walking distance to your condo include diving instruction, surf and paddle board rentals and lessons, and outdoor yoga on the lawn.

For those that want to get away from the beach for a short while the Kiahuna Plantation grounds offer amazing gardens filled with lily ponds, Koi, orchids, cacti, tropical flowers and colorful bird life. Throughout, there are large, mature tropical trees interspersed with spacious rolling lawns. The lawns go right up to the beach and many people enjoy lounging on the grass in the shade of the coconut palms, enjoying a good read, with an occasional dip in the ocean.

The gardens and the original Plantation House, now the onsite restaurant, are pieces of history from the early days of the first sugar plantation. Well worth exploring!

The condo is just a short walk to the restaurants and shops across the street. We love Keoki's Paradise with it's open air seating and live music at the bar. At Poipu Shopping village there's plenty of shopping! You can also travel a short distance west to Kukui'ula for more stores and restaurants.

There are also several grocery stores for stocking up your condo and buying gifts. The famous Brennecke's beach is just a short distance away. A new mall, Kukui'ula, has just opened nearby with it's own natural foods store, more shopping and restaurants.

Kauai itself has unlimited things to do and explore. From shopping to helicopter rides to exploring the North and West shores by Zodiac or catamaran excursions. Last time we were there we paddle boarded up the Wailua River and then hiked up to Secret Falls. Really an incredible experience! We will send you information on some of the things to do on the island with your reservation.

Just know that whenever you come back to the Kiahuna you will have a beautiful and comfortable home to hang your sunhat in- with its' own amazing view of the ocean that may make you not want to leave!

About Jennifer Sommer Seyfried

I have been visiting the Kiahuna Plantation for many years now. Every time I return it feels like home. There are many beautiful plantation buildings in the complex but I believe this spot is one of the best. The view of the surf is spectacular. If you are so inclined to surf, you can literally check it from the living room with your coffee and walk to the beach from the unit. Watching the Tilapia and the bird life in the fresh water lagoon right in front is very relaxing and entertaining. Kauai will capture your heart and this place will be your home away from home.

Jennifer Sommer Seyfried purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer Sommer Seyfried chose Kauai

The Kiahuna Plantation resort is unique to all the islands. It is not a hotel or a time share. YOU CANNOT SELECT A SPECIFIC UNIT WHEN RENTING FROM CASTLE OR OUTRIGGER. The property is also very open and spread out, low density with wonderful pedestrian grounds between the classic plantation style buildings. It also has its own beach. It's a great enhancement to your vacation to be able to get away from cars, garages, and parking lots. All the condos have the same floor plan (one and two bedroom) and similar interior design but every location within the Kiahuna is different.

THIS CONDO HAS JUST COMPLETED FULL REMODEL OCTOBER 2015!! Some units are noisier than others, some have more pedestrian and car traffic than others, some have more privacy than others and some of them have not been updated in years.

When we found this unit for sale, we knew from staying at the Kiahuna many times that we had found something special. This condo has a breathtaking view of the ocean and yet it is far enough from the busy beach and road traffic to be very quiet and serene. Nobody walks in front of the condo giving a very private feel, even in crowded times of the year.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a minute's walk to the sandy beach and a six or seven minute walk to the shops and restaurants across the street. It is just a short walk to the check-in areas. The parking lot next to the condo, although just far enough away to not be a sound problem, is close enough for easy access in and out of the car. And it usually has good spots available! The condo is situated nicely to get a lot of brightness and to capture the ocean breezes. FULL REMODEL AND REFURNISHING FALL 2015

Beautiful Space

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and clean and perfectly central place to stay! The view was exquisite and the breeze moved through the house as rhythmic as the waves... On Popui beach ... Hearing the surf and watching birds... Along with the many days of adventures ... Kayaking, hiking, waterfalls, zip lining ... And close to Starbucks and many lovely eating choices if you do not want to cook.. We so enjoyed our time we are booking a longer stay for next year! We so loved gazing across the lagoon to Popui Beach... Beautiful lawns .. An absolute delight...we were 3 generations including adolescents and all had a glorious time!!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kiahuna since 1975. We are now a group of 17, including children, grand children and step grandchildren. So we rented 5 condos. My son and his 3 teenage and adolescent daughters stayed in unit 211 and it was gorgeous! The kitchen was open to the living area, so everything was bright, with a lovely view. One upgrade that I appreciated are the hardwood floors, as many of the other units have carpet, which can't be kept clean from sand. The owner was really accommodating & easy to communicate with, especially since it was confusing for me to get 5 units at the same time. I would stay in this unit again!

Amazing condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying here. The views from the condo and the surrounding area are even more spectacular than the photos online. The lagoon between the condo and the ocean added to the peacefulness and beauty of the entire area, along with all of the flowers, trees, perfectly manicured grass, etc. We took several pictures of our family in front of the amazing trees, flowers, bushes, etc. I told my wife that it feels like we are in the garden of Eden, but with a beach next to it. The condo was clean, well-kept, and perfect for our family. It had a nice kitchen, beds, and everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. Jennifer bent over backwards in helping to make sure our trip went well, and even made sure we had boogie boards, which we loved using at several beaches along with our snorkeling adventures. We made many great memories! We highly suggest this for families or couples who love beaches and the beauties of nature, in a peaceful setting.

Owner's Response: Thank you, mahalo, Duane, for that nice review. I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your time at the Kiahuna Plantation and were comfortable. I appreciated the good communication we had going. I like to feel that this is a home away from home for everyone that comes to the island. Please know you are welcome back anytime. Jennifer

Excellent condo

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I decided on this condo for a girls' getaway/staycation and we absolutely loved it! The view is even better than the photos and the condo was immaculate and nicely furnished. The Poipu location is perfect and Kiahuna Plantation is a beautiful and relaxing resort right on the beach. Wish we could've stayed longer!

Best place to stay in Poipu and best unit at Kiahuna!

  • 5 of 5

Just stay here!! Yes, the numerous positive reviews are accurate!

We had a wonderful time staying at this unit in February 2016 and had absolutely no complaints. I spent countless hours researching different lodging options in Poipu and having never been there before, I was overwhelmed at the options. After being there and scoping out some of the complexes we'd considered, we realized that Kiahuna is the only one on a sandy beach. You have a fairly large beach right in front of the property and it is sandy and safe to swim/snorkel. It is where they teach most of the beginning surfing lessons too. So you don't have to walk or drive to get to a beach which is unique to the majority of condo's in Poipu. The Kiahuna beach was not crowded at all, unlike the Poipu Beach Park which was packed every time we went there. Kiahuna has beach towel service and chairs you can use for free. If you don't like sitting in the sand, there is a large grassy expanse you can sit on instead.

The unit itself is beautiful. The only thing between you and the ocean is a beautiful lagoon and the perfectly manicured landscaping that you'll find through out the Kiahuna grounds. I actually preferred being set back from the beach a bit, as there was less noise from beach-goers. Overall, this property was very quiet. We actually saw whales from our porch.

I was concerned regarding no AC, but this was truly not a problem. You just have shutters overlying the screen on the windows. This doesn't keep the noise out if there is a screaming baby nearby, but it gives the place a real tropical feel. The other thing I worried about was the fact that the 2nd bedroom has two twin beds. This was a trip with 2 couples and I had initially disregarded staying at Kiahuna because of that. However, housekeeping was able to push the twin beds together and although someone ends up sleeping in "the crack" it did not spoil our vacation in the least. We loved the property so much that this was easily overlooked. As is mentioned extensively, the kitchen/living room is on a different level from the bedroom/bathrooms; this was not a problem with us but anyone with mobility problems would have difficulty here.

The owner was extremely responsive and helpful leading up to our vacation, and while there, we fortunately did not need to contact her. Truthfully, I would not want to stay anywhere else upon returning to Kauai. I really feel this specific property is absolutely ideal.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thorough and informative review! Future guests who may also become overwhelmed with lodging shopping will appreciate what you have written. Everything you said is quite accurate, from the beach situation, crowd and noise, to the comfort of the condo. As with all my guests, you can now consider this your Kauai go-to home and pay the returning guest special rate. I love sharing the condo with people who have stayed previously and are coming back because they love it! All the best

The Kiahuna Plantation has the only resort associated sandy beach in the Poipu area. The beach is wonderful and safe for kids of all ages. For the adventurous there are two great surf spots right out in front of the Kiahuna.

Close by are several world class golf resorts open to the public. Within walking distance are many shops, restaurants and even a grocery store and Starbucks.

Famous Brennecke's Beach is also just a walk or a short drive away with all it's shops, restaurants and surf shop.

The Kiahuna Plantation is a great location to launch your adventures anywhere on the island. Everything on the island is within an hour's drive. When you are done with your sightseeing this condo is a wonderful place to return to relax, decompress and get ready for more adventures!
