Relaxation at its Finest
We've stayed at this property before, but being in this specific unit was amazing. There was ample parking, only a short walk away. The condo was cozy and quiet and perfect! Plenty of dishes, cups, silverware, platters, and ice. Comfortable furniture, nice TV. Everything that could be taken care of was.
Now on to the uncontrollable: it was a King tide and a full moon, which caused a high tide that made it impossible to go to the beach, unless we walked to the Sheraton. The waves pounded the entire stay and it was difficult to sleep the first 2 nights. The waves eroded the "cliff" that overlooks the beach and there was caution tape and bright orange barriers blocking our amazing view. The few shrubs/bushes were washed away by the high tide. The stairway down to the beach was taped off and unusable. Property workers walked by our "private" patio several times a day to check on the erosion.
Please believe that I'm not complaining about the workers being safe. And there are some things that just can't be avoided or changed, such as the weather. I'm not trying to be negative about the property, just describing our experience.
If the weather is cooperating and the cliff is safe, this is the absolute best unit at this property for an unobstructed view of the ocean. It's just a bummer that we weren't able to enjoy it as much as we planned.
Good condo with amazing location and specatular views
Just came back from staying here for a week. It was one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. A lot of this is due to the beach front location of the condo in Poipu on the south end of the island. While the condo interior is nothing special, the views from the patio and even the living room/kitchen are spectacular! You can easily watch the ocean, surfers and sunset all right from the condo. It' super relaxing to sit there and just watch the beach and ocean - which are literally just a few feet from the patio. You can rent surfboards, snorkel equipment and other beach gear about 50 feet from the patio door, so it's super convenient if you want to engage in beach activities. There's also a full kitchen as well as many restaurants right near by. Hardly any need to take more than a few minutes drive anywhere unless you want to explore the other sides of the island. It really is a spectacular location. It's a great value compared to staying in a resort, although you don't get a pool, hot-tub, air-conditioning, a bar, spa, etc. However, if you want a quite beach front condo with great views, right on the beach, with a full kitchen at half the price of a resort, this place is what you want. You also get free access to a athletic facility (with a nice kids pool) just a short walk away, good Internet, free, close parking and housekeeping only as frequently as you want it. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if/when we come back to Kauai.
Ultimate Hawaii Experience
Location, cleanliness of unit and property, and not to mention the pristine beach, makes this property an ultimate experience.
Anything one needs is within a 2 mile drive or short walk.
We'll be back!
Thanks very much for your kind thoughts. We like to think about an on-the-beach vacation in Kiahuna Beachhouse #5 much like your comment: "If it isn't available within a 2-mile walk, we probably don't need it!" We welcome you to our Kiahuna Ohana and look forward to your return!
We are regulars at the Plantation, and this unit is fantastic.
Can’t Beat Location
You can’t find a better location on any of the islands! 10 feet from beach, sunset view and great condo. Close by are a lot of good food options in Poipu (not all sit in either, good take out spots) so you bring back and enjoy on the lanai. Trade winds weren’t around so it got a little warm but they have fans you can put right by the bed. Overall great stay and thanks!
Best condo location in Poipu
Everything was as advertised and the location can be beat in Poipu. The surfing students provided nearly constant entertainment as we sat on the lanai and we could watch the sun set from the comfort of the couch in the living room. Make sure to walk around the complex grounds and take in the giant trees. They're amazing. We'll definitely be back.
You can watch right from our lanai - or even snap pictures - as your family members take a surf lesson right in front of your Beachhouse!
