About Susanne Wisnewski

We, Susanne and Frank, are a German couple, 49 and 52 years old, happily married for many years, with three grown up kids, two boys and one girl.

We are now living and working in Switzerland. We both graduated from German universities, work as managers, and we love traveling and meeting new people.

Frank loves deep sea fishing, snorkeling and surfing. Susanne also shares his hobbies, but is also fond of reading and learning new languages.

Kiahuna has always been our favorite place to stay.

Why Susanne Wisnewski chose Kauai

As we have been coming to Kauai twice per year for the last 10 years, we finally decided it was time to get an own condo, so we could build our home far away from home. We love the beautiful gardens, the sunny side of the island, and the fact, that Kiahuna is the only real beach front condo vacation rental, that offers a wonderful swimming and snorkeling beach.

Everything for your convenience is at hand and in walking distance: restaurants, shops, a Whaler shop, golf courses, tennis and pool....

Last but not least it is also the people and staff at Kiahuna that also make you feel at home.

What makes this condo unique

We like especially about our condo the top floor location with the vaulted ceilings and its new exquisite unusual equipment.

The large lanai offers a view into the beautiful trees and garden, making you feel as you were sitting in a tree house. The birds sing every morning and the beach is so close.

We upgraded the interior to make it special, two extra large TVs, offering full digital HD-TV including FREE HBO! A blu-ray player, Wii console, and even an European espresso machine to enjoy those special drinks on your lanai is also our standard. We added a wine cooler and now, you can print and copy with our brand new HP Ptinter, which we provide for our guests use.

We want you to feel at home, just like we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Susanne and Frank,

My family and I are about to leave Kauai and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your condo. It is a wonderful place and had everything that we could have hoped for. Your recommendations for things to do and see were very helpful and I think we managed to take in many of them. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend on this beautiful island. Hopefully, we will have a chance to return sometime in the future and stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us. With best regards,

Bobby

Amazing family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, two kids (one teen one kid) and two adults were very comfortable in this beautiful haven! It was beautifully decorated, all the comforts of home yet with a vacation/resort feel. The grounds are amazing and the beach just a few steps away was more than we could have imagined. The owners truly go out of their way to provide an amazing experience. The amenities were fabulous. The health club which includes the pool and the gym were one of our favorite things. We are a very health/fitness conscious family and that gym was the best facility I've ever seen.

We drove around almost the entire island and can truthfully say we would go back there again. An unforgettable, peaceful, serene location!

Mahalo!!!!!

This is a very nice property with many amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay here with our two boys. It could be a little noisy at times in the early morning or late night with noise from Poipu Road or the parking lot, but not too bad. It would have been very warm in the condo without the two Ion fan units. Nice location, and walking to the beach was so easy, esp with chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear, and boogie board provided!

All That & More

  • 5 of 5

Much Mahalo to Susanne and Frank for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home!! We literally needed only our clothes because their condo was very well equiped. They had everything a vacationer will ever need and more. They met a whole lot of our expectations and we had such a wonderful time on Kauai. We definitely recommend their unit to any one who is planning a trip out there, whether it be long or short term. Much blessings to you both and Aloha!

Excellence in every respect

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Kauai - and I must say, we got lucky! Everything about this unit was amazing - from the furniture to the appliances to the bed, all of it was top notch. The unit (as is described!) comes fully equipped with pretty much everything you can think of (beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie board, expresso machine, pots/pans, juicer, coffee machine, coffee, etc) and lots of things you wouldn't even expect. Overall the internet connection was really good (sometimes in places like this it can be flaky, but we were able to stream a couple movies). There were hanging racks to hang up wet clothes on the lanai and perfect furniture for sitting out there too! The entire place was clean, the shower lovely, the bathroom well apportioned and all the necessities were stocked. I contacted Susanne a number of times and she always responded promptly with help. I have only wonderful things to say about them and their place. The Kiahuna Plantation was also incredibly well-maintained and the beach was only 5 minutes away. In fact, after checking out many beaches on the island, it was definitely one of our favorites - not too crowded and not too way (except around high tide!) Our only complaint was outside the owner's control... we were clueless about those crazy roosters. Make sure you bring earplugs for their excessive crowing if you want to sleep past 5am. While there is no air conditioner, since it is on the 3rd floor there is a plenty of cross breeze and the ceiling fans and floor fans do a lot to help that. It does require one to keep the windows open though (at least in June!) so there was no blocking those morning sounds. Incredibly satisfied and had a wonderful stay. Would not hesitate to book again!

A vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

An absolute gem. The condo. was absolutely perfect for my husband and me. So well-appointed and Frank and Susanne thought of EVERYTHING that guests would need to enjoy their stay - from beach chairs and snorkeling gear to even sunblock. And the condo is right across the street from great shops and it made it so easy to pick up a fabulous dinner from the Olympic Cafe and come back to the condo and kick back on the lanai and relax after a hard day of hiking or a long day of snorkeling. And within walking distance of a few minutes to fabulous beaches. Overall, one of the best vacations ever and having the condo as a base made it so.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words ! It is always a pleasure for us to find out that our guests find the little extras we provide as helpful as we had hoped they would. We take pride in providing equipment and accessories that we ourselves want to have in a condo and when we receive such positive feedback, it simply makes us happy ! We will continue to equip our condo with all comfort and treat it as our home, not just a vacation condo.. When finally your vacation has come, your place to stay should be one reason why you feel relaxed. So please come again, we would be so happy to welcome you as our guests in our Kiahuna Ohana (family). Warm Aloha, Susanne and Frank

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous!!! Probably the best condo my adult daughters have ever been in. Loved the amenities, gorgeous view, spaciousness, beautiful grounds, wonderful beach (snorkeling and turtles), plus easy access to good restaurants. A little cold at night and someone showed quiet those roosters. But overall the best ever!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Frank, what a nice and kind review, thank you !! We know that the condos are equipped differently and when we bought our two condos, we wanted our guests to feel exactly the way you did : satisfied with what they found when checking in. It makes us proud to hear that our guests appreciate all the extra efforts we undergo to make our condo a real home away from home. And we are lucky to be in such a nice environment with everything so close but yet in a tranquil and tropical setting. Again, Mahalo for staying with us. We would be honoured to have you back again. Until then, warm Aloha from Susanne and Frank
