Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Poipu - Kiahuna Plantation
Welcome to our newly acquired condo, Kiahuna Plantation’s Unit 309, overlooking the beautiful Moir Gardens. Enjoy breakfast on the lanai listening to the birds and even getting a couple of peeks at the ocean a short walk away. Kauai is truly an island paradise and Kiahuna Plantation is quite possibly the best place to enjoy the best of what the island has to offer. We love all the Hawaiian islands and have experienced everything from the famous volcanoes on the Big Island, the whales off Maui, the mule ride down to Kalaupa’pa on Molokai, the North Shore and Waikiki of Oahu and the incredibly relaxing Garden Isle of Kauai. Having had to move away from our beloved Hawaii ne, we dreamed of one day owning a condo here. We looked on different islands trying to find just the right mix of all that we love about Hawaii. We found it here and are so excited to share it with you! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The GROUNDS are matchless in their beauty. Whether it’s the tropical walk-through gardens, the native palm trees, quaint bridges or manicured lawns that beg to be walked on barefoot, everything says, “Relax here.” As if that weren’t enough, Kiahuna Plantation has it’s own BEACH where you can swim, boogie board, surf (the beach hut staff offer surf lessons!), snorkel or just check out a beach chair and towel (both free) and take in the sights and sounds. At certain times of year the sunsets from the beach are unparalleled. If you are an early riser, you may even see a monk seal or two lounging about on the shore.
We are TENNIS fanatics so we were thrilled to discover that across the street a short walk from our condo is a tennis and swim club, free to Kiahuna Plantation guests. The pro shop will even arrange matches for you if you’d like as well. The pool has a kids’ waterslide and a sandy beach entry for small children. A whirlpool spa is located just off to the side of the pool area. After play is done, a restaurant on-site will take care of your after workout appetite.
Also across the street are highly rated restaurants and quaint shops for a change of pace. Historic Koloa town is just a few minutes away as well. While you could spend your entire vacation at the Plantation and have all your wants and needs met, Kauai has limitless opportunities for adventures of all sorts. You can kayak up a river to a waterfall, hike the famous Napali coast, take a scenic drive to a lighthouse, take a catamaran to watch dolphins or catch a show. It’s all here! Grab a guide book, plan your adventure and come! You’ll love it!

About Kristin Hess
I am a Coast Guard brat. I've lived lots of places nationally and internationally, including Hawaii. Once on my own, my family was able to return Oahu. We have sinced moved away but I have always wanted to keep my ties to Hawaii strong. It feels like the one place where my heart can truly call home. It has been a dream come true to own a condo on Kauai.
Kristin Hess purchased this condo in 2013
Why Kristin Hess chose Poipu
We looked at many locations and fell in love with Kiahuna Plantation on Kauai. It seems to have all the best of what Hawaii has to offer: beautiful beaches, tropical plants and birds, plenty of water activities and the Aloha spirit Hawaii is famous for. It is just the perfect mix of relaxation and play!
