About Randy Nordstrom

Randy Nordstrom purchased this condo in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. Loved the condo. We had everyone over for a meal, from two other units, and they all were very impressed with your place and how bright and beautiful it was. They preferred it of all of the units. Also the cross breeze in your unit was very nice. The property was so nice and we all really enjoyed it. We spent quite a bit of time at the beach which was so much fun - especially for the kids from each family. I will leave a review in the Vrbo site shortly. We hope to go again soon and if we do we will get in touch with you to see if your condo is available.

Thanks again so much for the great communication and letting us visit your home.

Kiahuna ground floor #39 steps to beach - GREAT location, FABULOUS condo
average rating of 4.848101 based on 139 reviews

#39 is absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

#39 is everything we could ask for staying in Kauai (and at the perfect beach in Poipu!). It's open and bright and has perfect cross winds as a corner unit. Even when you are in the condo getting your little ones ready, or taking a break from direct sun, you still get warm breezes and know you are in Kauai.

Its updated appliances make it easy to decide to cook an evening or two and still feel like a vacation.

The lanai is perfect in its view of the gardens, yet set away so you it is quiet enough to fall asleep listening to the birds.

At the same time it is so close to the beach. Easy to carry bits of gear and run back if you forget anything.

The owners are so attentive and helpful.

I highly recommend this location, this condo and these owners. You will not be disappointed.

Private unit, excellent location

Great host. Great location. Great experience. Plenty of toys for use etc... One of the better overall locations at Kiahuna Plantation. More open and lighter feeling than most 1BR units. We will be back as soon as we can...thanks Randy!!

Excellent space, location, access

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the stay!! We enjoyed the quite peacefulness that the property offers, while being well located to access all the adventures that southern Kauai has to offer. When on the property, we grilled fresh fish on the plantation bbq's and relaxed by the beach - a perfect combination!

Perfect place to stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever and this condo was perfect. It is nicely updated. It is steps to a private beach. And the location is great and an easy drive to any part of the island. We are already planning a trip to return next summer!

We *scored* when we found this condo--owner Randy was an absolute pleasure to work with. First of all, we slept like babies in the wildly comfortable master bed. The entire condo is upgraded with lovely granite in the kitchen and bathroom, and a great shower. Lots of storage to unpack your bags and toiletries, and plenty of hangers for your clothes. Super clean and organized. The open floor plan in the kitchen and natural light make this condo feel larger than many of the others. Super close to the office and parking, and a lot of privacy on the lanai since it's a bottom corner unit (nestled). The colorful island birds seem to love the plants around the back--they're BEAUTIFUL to look at while you sip your morning coffee! It's a super quick walk to the beach and towel cabana (fresh beach towels whenever you need em, included!). Also, Randy stocks snorkel gear for three, plus four different size flippers (saving a lot in rental $), three boogie boards, two beach umbrellas, a VERY handy portable lunch cooler, a bocce ball set, and a nice selection of travel books to help navigate the island flora/fauna. There's a Keurig, a coffee pot, and plenty of supplies to make everyday cooking a breeze. The wifi is super reliable (great for streaming island music), and we really appreciated not having to burn data! We will absolutely stay here again! Also appreciated the locking safe for our cash and small valuables. Another bonus: it was GREAT to go across the street to use the spa/pool at the athletic club! That's included with your rental, and they provide beach towels there, too! No need to bring ANY towels to the plantation. Plenty for all...I recommend bringing lots of ziplocs for storing leftover food or just to have handy for packing lunches. Randy has stocked all the coffee filters you'll need for your Kauai coffee, and there are reusable Keurig pods in the bottom drawer if you want to make single servings (no need to buy disposable pods). Bring sugar packets or buy a little on arrival. Otherwise, Randy has provided a great assortment of spices for cooking. Oh, and his blender works especially well for daiquiris. The stores in Koloa are more than sufficient to stock your fridge when you arrive (Big Save and Sueokas). Definitely recommend Bldg. 8, #39--and Randy! He truly cares about making your vacation a home away from home. We visited a lot of condos while we were there--his is exceptional. Highly recommend!

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This unit was just as we expected: well maintained with an up to date and stylish decor, and a great location with lots of privacy and easy access to the property amenities. The corner unit is surrounded by beautiful flowering trees and bushes and offered a wonderful place to relax/eat outside. We ate breakfast and most dinners in this lovely spot. The very short stroll to the beach area offers a wonderful place to enjoy the consistent beautiful weather. The owner was very helpful throughout the process and the staff on site so friendly and cooperative! We did it all in KAUAI: catamaran ride on the NaPali coast, tubing in the irrigation tunnels, kayaking, bike riding, hiking to several waterfalls, ziplining, hiking in the Waimea Canyon. The island is beautiful and we explored everywhere. Thank you Randy for a wonderful 40th Anniversary celebration.
