About Kevin & Kate Egan
Over the years we have been lucky to have visited the four major islands and enjoyed the special qualities of each. We fell in love with Kauai! For over 30 years we have spent vacations on Kauai. We have stayed on the north shore, on the east shore and in the south in the Poipu area. Although we live in a beach community in Southern California, we look forward to our trips to Kauai. It takes us away from the frantic Southern California pace, allows us to relax, reconnect with nature and rejuvenate our bodies and aloha spirit. We have been fascinated by the Kiahuna Plantation's old world feeling of traditional Hawaii and fell in love with it's location and the beach. The Poipu area, although it has many visitors, also maintains a wonderful local feeling and aloha spirit. As a family we enjoy the beaches, especially the snorkeling around the Kiahuna Plantation and Poipu beach and as an avid long time bodysurfer, I enjoy Shipwreck's beach which is a short distance from our condo.
Kevin & Kate Egan purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Kevin & Kate Egan chose Poipu
We became familiar with Kauai, Poipu and Kiahuna over the years and the island area around the plantation became part of us. We have a special feeling when we are there. For years we have looked for just the right property to fully enjoy all the Island has to offer. We fell in love with Kiahuna and this condo because of Kiahuna's location on Kauai and the condo's location within Kiahuna Plantation. As an added bonus, the former owner has lovingly and tastefully remodeled and upgraded in exactly the way we would have done it ourselves! We read the great reviews from guests that had stayed in this condo recently - many 5 star reviews!!! What others have said about Kiahuna #227 and their stay- 'I've been to Kauai three times, and this condo experience surpassed all others. Everything was in tip top shape and very up-to-date..... The grounds surrounding the condo are beautifully landscaped. We loved sitting on the lanai in the morning to enjoy our breakfast and the view..... We had an absolutely wonderful time at the lovely Kiahuna Condos. Everyone there were so nice and accommodating ......and so friendly. The condo itself was wonderfully decorated and very functional.... It was everything as advertised and more. The Kiahuna grounds are gorgeous, the beach was easy access and beautiful, and the little shopping center across the street met all our needs..... The view from the lanai was so serene and peaceful.... We loved the decor and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. We loved the view from our lanai, the tiki torches at night, the early morning rain showers and the sounds and scents of tropical paradise..... The location is ideal - a 2 minute stroll to the ocean and there is a fantastic restaurant on the property. We will be back! The apartment is airy, lovely, light, and quiet. We spent much of our time on the lanai, where we were visited daily by local and beautiful tropical birds. We were six minutes walk from my favorite beach for snorkeling.....'
What makes this Condo unique
Our vacation home is centrally located within the plantation. It is surrounded by lovely tropical trees and gardens. It is a short walk one way to the beach and the other way to Castle Resort's exclusive Poipu Beach Athletic Club, tennis courts and swimming pool. It is also an easy walk to the on-site highly rated Plantation Gardens Restaurant and to Whaler's Village just across Poipu road. It is an upper level unit with tropical breezes and a lanai to take in the garden and ocean views. You might catch a whale spouting while eating on the lanai and watching the sunset over the blue Pacific. It is truly one of life's great pleasures!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Return to Kiahuna Plantation
We have stayed at Kiahuna Plantation several times (different units) but this was our first time with our daughter, 5 years old. Kate and Kevin's place is very family friendly! It was fun to find puzzles, games and some children's books at the unit to use - it made us feel that we were using their second home vs "just a rental" - and that makes a difference! There is also a closet full of beach gear to make the stay even easier. Kate and Kevin have been very thoughtful in furnishing their unit to make their guests feel comfortable and at home while on vacation. While planning, they were quick to communicate and enthusiastic to share information about the area and help make our visit as easy as possible. We very much enjoyed our stay and will be back!
Aloha Deb and Family,
Your review is informative and so nice for future Guests. Our son is now a teenager and when he was a little guy, was eager to choose books, toys and puzzles for our younger Guests. We truly appreciate that it has the feeling of a "second home vs just a rental -- it does make a difference to us, also. We are looking forward to your next vacation in 227!
Mahalo nui loa,

Beautiful location. The great lawn and beach are better than any other beach. Extras in the room are a nice touch: lots of fans, snorkel gear, ice chests, chairs. Etc. thanks!
Aloha Brooks and mahalo for your very nice review. One of the many reasons we, also, love Kiahuna Plantation is the Great Beautiful lawn - known all over the world for Weddings. The options of lounging on the lawn chairs,
strolling along the long beach, or just walking into 80 degree clear water to snorkel, swim, or surf made our decision to buy 227. So pleased you enjoyed all of the beach toys And New Mattress !
Aloha nui loa - Kate and Kevin
Love the condo and the Kiahuna
This is our second time staying in unit 227 and our 4th time at the Kiahuna Plantation. This condo is lovely and absolutely as shown in the photos. The bed and furniture is very comfortable. The kitchen well supplied with pretty much everything we needed to prepare meals and we prepared many in the condo and using the gas grill just below the building. The dining table & chairs plus lounges make it easy to enjoy the lanai. We did all our breakfasts and most diners out there. A few meals out and I would recommend Plantation Gardens for an upscale dinner. We were also pleasantly surprised with dinner at Holo Holo (Koloa Landing Resort) nearby. If your out and about, I would also recommend lunch at The Bistro (in Kilauea) and at Oasis (in Kapaa)The beach at the Kiahuna is beautiful, though when the tide comes up, there's not much sitting room. Then move to the immense lawn overlooking the ocean-we did many happy hours there. To enjoy an incredible sunset, its a shorts walk to the Sheraton's lawn. BTW The condo closet is filled with great Tommy Bahama beach chairs, coolers, good snorkel gear, boogie boards etc, which we took advantage of on a regular basis. Mahalo to Kevin & Kate-working with you has been an absolute pleasure, your condo is awesome and we hope to return.
WOW Kathi !
Your review is very thorough and complimentary to 227, the beautiful lawn and beach and Plantation Garden's dinner house. We enjoyed your reference to 3 restaurants located in different Island towns. Our future Guests will take note of your comments and that can truly be beneficial to Kauai for more business. Mahalo for returning to the Plantation and choosing to stay in 227. We look forward to providing another get-away and the next time, you will be on a Brand New Mattress :) coming this week ! Also, so pleased you enjoyed your closet full of beach toys ~ Mahalo nui loa,
Kate and Kevin
Relaxing at 227 Kiahuna plantation
Loved the location of this unit, private and quiet with partial ocean view. Easy access to ocean front and health club. Very clean and comfortable with all the amenities one would require. Thanks Kevin & Kate.
Thank You for taking the time to write your review. We hope you will return to our Kiahuna Plantation and stay in 227 again.
Kate and Kevin
Exactly as shown in pics, great location
Enjoyed sitting out on the lanai every day enjoying the peekaboo ocean view and view of the plantation gardens. We stayed here with our 2 children, ages 10 & 7, appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. Beach out front has fantastic soft sand and great for playing in the waves. Walking distance to great restaurants and shops. Was very nice to see the condo stocked with all the basics and the welcome basket was a GREAT surprise!! Thank you!!
Aloha Lauren and family,
We are so pleased that you found everything, just for you, in our Guest's closet ! Mahalo for your very nice review - we, also, enjoy the Lanai to begin and end our days.
Aloha and we hope you will return to 227,
Kate and Kevin
