Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Poipu - KIahuna Plantation Resort

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is the only condo resort in Poipu on a sandy beach! Beautiful and spacious 2-level condo with open floor plan, remodeled kitchen and newer furnishings. Everything you need is included in this condo - linens, bedding, fully equipped kitchen, beach chairs/towels, sand toys. And unlike other condos, the Kiahuna offers full resort amenities including concierge, 24 hour office, security, maintenance, housekeeping, pool, waterslide, jacuzzi, gym, yoga/exercise classes, tennis courts, golf course, bbqs. The sunny south shore offers a perfect holiday all year long. The east shore is very windy and the north shore (Princeville/Hanalei) is the rainy side and there are no condo resorts directly on the sand like the Kiahuna. Spend your vacation on the sunny side of Kauai !!

Best beach in Kauai - rated #1 beach by Travel Channel. Enjoy the sunny south shore with beautiful tropical grounds, orchid gardens, lush greenery and vast grassy areas. This is traditional plantation style Hawaii at its best... not a typical high rise hotel. This low-density 35 acre resort is unparalleled in its tropical beauty, with more open space and large grassy areas than most properties ... you will not find another resort like this. You can spend your entire vacation here without getting into your car. Walk to snorkeling, diving, surfing, restaurants, shopping, market, pool, tennis, golf, luaus and other activities. Relax on the beach or sit on the grassy area next to the sand. This resort provides free beach chairs and towels and rents all watersports equipment. Surf lessons also available at our resort. 2 premiere golf courses in Poipu and more activities than you can do in one or two weeks! Come and enjoy the paradise of the Garden Isle of Kauai!!

This condo is in building 35. Twice as big as the 1-bed condos here with 1584 square feet/147 square meters. All 2-bedroom condos here are 2-story and have the same floorplan. Entry, bedrooms, bathrooms, lanai downstairs - living, dining, kitchen, lanai upstairs. We have a free porta-crib (bring a crib sheet) and stair gates.

About The Garlands

We have lived in Southern California our entire lives, raising our two sons in beautiful San Diego. We love spending our vacations in Hawaii and other tropical locations.

The Garlands purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Garlands chose Kauai

We started bringing our boys to the Kiahuna Plantation when they were young. It was such an easy place to vacation with kids that we just kept coming back, so we finally decided to buy a condo so that we could spend more time on our favorite Hawaiian island!

What makes this condo unique

With approximately 1584 square feet/147 square meters, there's plenty of room to stretch out and relax in this well-appointed condominium. Right across the street is a mini-market for stocking the fridge, as well as restaurants and shopping. This beautiful beach is perfect for swimming, snorkeling and surfing right out front, with on-site rentals, surf lessons and free beach chairs, towels and sand toys. Just a few steps to golf and tennis as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our vacation was the best we've ever had! The island is an amazing place with so much to do. Your condo was great - we all liked the decor very much. While we were busy during the days, we slept with the glass doors open and nights were quiet with a very comfortable breeze. With six people we were all very comfortable. While there, we went on a helicopter tour of the island, rode ATVs, rode bikes down the canyon, went snorkeling, took a dinner cruise, and took a zip-line safari. We also spent a great deal of time on the beach and in the water. As busy as we were, there was much more we would like to do. We would definitely like to return on another vacation in the future.

Great spot at Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Kiahuna Plantation and first time staying at the Garlands' place. The condo is a 2BR/2Bath, very nicely furnished, spotless, situated close to the restaurant and office, with a peak of the Ocean out of the living room.

On our previous visits, we booked directly with Outrigger, which was fine. However, having a point of contact, especially one as helpful as Judy, was a much more pleasant experience. I would recommend the Garlands' place on that basis alone. She helped coordinate our arrival, made recommendations for restaurants, checked in with me numerous times to make sure I had everything I needed, and then made arrangements for us to check in to the condo early, which was a huge help as we got there in the morning. Thank you, Judy.

The garden location was very nice, and very quiet. There's a bbq right down below the unit, which we used a couple of times. I also appreciated the proximity to the restaurant/bar and a couple of times my wife and I hopped over there for a cocktail before dinner. The location also puts you close to the Poipu shopping village - we walked over there each morning for coffee.

The unit itself was great. It has every amenity you would expect to find in a well stocked place. Beds were very comfortable and easily accommodated our family of 4, with room to spare. Everything was exactly as advertised.

Lastly, I'll just give a shout out to Kiahuna Plantation in general. I've yet to find a place on Kauai that can match the killer beachfront location, ambiance (just walk the grounds at dusk and you'll se what I mean) and chill vibe of Kiahuna. I get the impression that they get a lot of repeat visitors and it's easy to see why. Thanks again to Garland family for having us.

Highly recommend! Can't wait to go again.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful unit at the Kiahuna! The Garlands 2 bedroom/2 bath condo was beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean, and made my family of 6 feel like it was our home. I've been staying at the Kiahuna since it was built in the 1970s - 1990s but this was my first time in a 2/2 model and I'm very happy with our choice. It is located near the office and close walking distance to the Poipu Shopping Village as well as the beach. BBQ is close by as well. The main living area (2nd floor) of the condo has a very open feel and the breezes moved well throughout keeping us comfortable. The bedrooms downstairs and baths are nicely decorated as well. All rooms had ceiling fans and there were plenty of additional portable fans to help keep the unit cool top to bottom. We opted for the daily housekeeping services and it was well worth it with 6 people and allowed me to relax more :). We rented boogie boards at the beach hut and always had beach chairs available as well. The beautiful gardens and lawn areas are so inviting and a great place for kids to run around and play. For some reason all the frogs that my brother and I used to chase at night on the lawn when we were kids are gone. That may be a blessing to many visitors :)

What was especially nice was working with the Garlands to plan our stay. Kim was always available via email to answer all my questions (I had not been back for 20 years!) so I knew what to expect and confident we would have a good stay. On a side note: highly recommend Koloa Zipline for the adventurous types and the Honu Bar at the Waiohai Marriot resort down the beach for cocktails and great casual beach-side snacks and light dinner.

Again, a wonderful condo, I highly recommend it. Mahalo Garlands!

No Surprises

  • 5 of 5

Last-minute, 3-night stay at the Garlands' condo in Poipu during the 4th of July weekend. Would highly recommend for the following reasons: 1) no surprises, the condo is exactly as advertised. Very clean and well maintained. I was worried with no A/C, but there is sufficient trade winds and fans to keep the unit cool; 2) the owners are responsive and professional. Kim provided good suggestions for itineraries and places to eat; 3) great location - convenient to beach, shopping center, etc. Condo is professional managed by Outrigger Hotels so there's always someone around if you have problems or questions. My first night the TV didn't work. I called the front desk and someone came to look at it. They couldn't fix it but said they would send maintenance to look at it the next morning. How many times have we heard that? Well next morning someone came and re-connected the TV to the proper cable output.

My family had a great time and we would recommend this condo and the Garlands to everyone.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our trip to the Island. The Garlands have a great place to stay. It was clean and well cared for. Kim was always just a text away if we needed anything. She was easy to work with and even was able to give a late check out as she didn't have anyone coming in the next day which was awesome as our plane didn't leave until 9 that night. I had seen that she had one bad review lately but I have no idea what that person was thinking as this condo is well care for. The kitchen is very up to date and had everything you needed for use in the kitchen. The tv's and wifi was excellent as well. I was glad that ts had a cooler that you could pack drinks in to take in the car or even down to the beach for the day. The place even has a iron and ironing board that my mother appreciated. There is also a safe in the closet to use if you wanted. Security was great as we got a courtesy call from them within the first 8 hours of being that just to check on us. I highly recommend staying with the Garlands.

KIAHUNA PLANTATION (Poipu area)

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our vacation. Spent a week at this location (6 adults).

As you enter the condo from the landing the stairs down take you to the bottom floor with two bedroom (king in the master, two twins in the other) both bathrooms are down here as well. There is a nice patio off the master bedroom.

Upstairs is the kitchen and family room. The family room is huge (2 couches, two chairs, storage, flat screen tv). Kitchen is big enough for four people to work in. Huge table easily seats six. Nice big deck off the family room (round table with seating for four, lounge chair, 8 patio chairs.

The grounds of this property are BEAUTIFUL there is a nice garden walk full of orchids! Grounds very well groomed. The beach was lovely, we had no issue ever getting towels, chairs.....staff at the beach hut were very helpful and pleasant. On our last day (the owner was so kind to allow for a late checkout) we were lucky enough to have a monk seal sunning itself right on our beach!!! He was adorable!

Shopping right across the street (ABC store, clothing, restaurants, and icecream).

Also across the street was the workout center: Lots of cardio machines, separate resistance training center, pool, kiddie pool, whirlpool and tennis courts (which we used a lot!!)

Easy walk to both shopping and workout center yet we heard no traffic noise from our condo!

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The condo was clean, the amenities can't be beat. I don't think the photos do this condo justice, I was very pleased upon arrival. Hoping to return soon!!!!!
