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!
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.

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!
The condo and the property was very clean and beautiful. It was a short walk from the beach and to the Sheraton, where our friends were staying, so it was a perfect location for us. The towel hut was a bit far and we never even found the pool, but the ocean was close to our condo and a perfect little walk.
We had a nice stay in this condo. The size was just right for 2 adults (could also handle another 1-2 adults on the sofa sleeper for a night or 2). Very comfortable bed, great shower. The lanai looks over an adjacent garden and there is a peek-a-boo ocean view.
The condo can get a little warm in the afternoon (it has a southern exposure), and there is no AC. We were very comfortable with all the window open and the fans on. It cools down quickly once the sun drops, and there is usually an on-shore breeze in the afternoons.
Check in was quick and easy, and the staff did a good job describing where everything was and getting around. Check out also was quick, and the office is open 24/7 (good for us because we had an early morning flight out).
There is a grilling island a few steps from the entrance with a couple gas grills. We grilled steaks one night that we felt like staying in.
The beach is about a 5 minute walk, where there are beach towels and chairs to use. As a resort guest you have access to these amenities. The beach here is not as rocky as Poipu Beach or Benecke's Beach and the water is calmer. Great for kids (or Adults who don't want to get tossed around).
There is all kinds of dining, shopping, sight-seeing nearby. Definitely take a drive to Spouting Horn. Keokis Paradise is across the street (less than 5 minute walk) which has great sea food. Da Crack is less than a 5 minute drive towards Koloa, where you can get amazing fish tacos. There's a market next door for your supplies as well.
The owner has very thoughtfully supplied boogie boards and snorkel gear, which were great to use at the beach.
The only thing preventing a 5th star is that the bed frame is too big for the bedroom (hard to move around the room), and the ceiling fans need to be replaced as they are worn and noisy. We would go back despite those small things.
The condo is located on a slice of heaven. Huge patio is perfect for meals with a peek of the ocean. Super clean and comfy. Location is perfect. Shops and restaurants located across the street. I stayed at the 5 star Grand Hyatt up the street a year ago and my experience in this condo was twice as good. Owners are awesome and will answer any questions. All in all this was the best vacation ever. Looking forward to next year.
Thanks for letting us enjoy your condo! Everything was great. King size bed was lovely and the condo was nice and close to everything. We loved snorkeling at poipu beach and watching the sunsets here at Kiahuna plantation. Loved Kauai! Mahalo

And very comfortable. Check in was a breeze. Everything in the
Unit was perfect. Love the big king bed in the master. Thanks for the
Toys in the fun closet!
Easy, fast communication with hosts.
What a beautiful spot! The beach was wonderful...beautiful sunsets, fabulous snorkeling (we were told later that it has been rated one of the best), easily swimmable and family friendly and even convenient to learn to surfing.
The dining was terrific too. We enjoyed the fine dining options within easy walking distance: the restaurant on the property, the famous Roy's restaurant and Keiko's restaurant across the street.
We liked how close the tennis courts were to the condo (and that they were free!).
The condo felt like the perfect tropical retreat to come home to. We loved waking up viewing the scenic artwork on the wall of the bedroom...made us want to find the spot the photo was taken! Also, waking up to the birdsong in the nearby garden was lovely. As we went on to the lanai, what a sweet surprise to discover we could see the ocean! Also, the sleeper sofa was brand new. The mattress was thick and comfortable as sofa sleepers go--we couldn't feel the springs or bars.
We will definitely be returning next year. In fact, save our dates!
