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

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This beautiful and spacious condo has been completely renovated in 2015. New tile flooring throughout, kitchen and bathrooms with granite, furniture, window coverings, bedding, etc. Kiahuna Plantation is a 35 acre resort located on Kauai's world famous Poipu Beach. Kiahuna's sensational gardens, lawns and tropical atmosphere make it an irresistible vacation destination! 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 !!

This is the only condo resort in Poipu that is directly on a sandy beach. All other oceanfront condos on the south shore are on a rocky shoreline. Everything you need is included in this condo - linens, bedding, towels, fully equipped kitchen, 48" flat screen tv, beach chairs/towels, sand toys, and all resort amenities including 24 hour office, concierge, security, maintenance, housekeeping, pool, waterslide, jacuzzi, gym, tennis courts, golf courses, outdoor bbqs.

Rated #1 beach by Travel Channel. Enjoy the sunny south shore with beautiful tropical grounds, orchid gardens, lush greenery and large grassy areas. This is traditional plantation style Hawaii at its best... not a typical high rise hotel resort. You can spend your entire vacation here without getting into your car. Walk to snorkeling, 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 water sports equipment. Surf lessons available as well. 2 premiere golf courses. Come and enjoy the paradise of the Garden Isle of Kauai!!

You are smart to book directly with an owner - you know exactly what you are getting. If you book with a travel or management company you do not get to choose the unit. Each condo at this resort is individually owned, so interiors vary greatly.

This condo is in building 37. 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. We have two other 2-bedroom condos at this resort - check our other listings for more guest comments - #254147 and #281725.

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 2015

Why The Garlands chose Kauai

We started bringing our kids to the Kiahuna Plantation when they were young. It was such an easy place to vacation that we just kept going 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.

Kiahuna Unit 240

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 days at this condo. It is large and spacious with plenty of natural light in the upstairs portion. Kitchen is well stocked. We enjoyed the Poipu Athletic Club pool and fitness facility but wish it were on the Kiahuna Plantation property, as opposed to across the street. The twin beds in the second bedroom are a little too firm - not comfortable for an adult. Master bedroom was great. We would highly recommend having 4 beach chairs and one umbrella available in the condo for guests. That is something everyone coming to a beach property would enjoy. Ask the property management to account for them whenever someone checks out and if they are not returned to your unit, management should take note and charge the guest for the item taken (don't just say it may not be there). We did enjoy the unit, great location and quiet, and would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a wonderful holiday! There are free beach chairs at this resort at the beach hut. In addition, I also keep 2 beach chairs and an umbrella in the condo, but sometimes guests forget to bring them back or break them - sorry they were missing during your stay. Unfortunately management won't keep track of extra items like this for us. Hopefully the rest of your holiday was memorable and hope to have you back again soon!

Great Condo, spacious, very comfortable and very well set up. Beautifully Presented.

  • 4 of 5

We had two weeks staying in this really excellent property. It is very well furnished and very comfortable.

The very short walk to the beach is easy and only talks a minute or two.

We would stay here again without hesitation. The only query we have is that the check in staff were not very welcoming and neglected to fully advise us of various charges for towel, and linen changes etc. We expected the final cleaning charge as this was part of the information given in the communications with the owner, but the additional charges as mentioned above basically doubled the amount when we checked out. It would have been nice to know in advance.

The beach at Poipu is superb. The water is crystal clean and so good to swim in. There many options for walking either way along the coastline and the choice of the restaurants at the resort, and nearby in the other resorts, or at the shopping village just across the road or within a short drive means there is no lack of choices.

Kauai is a beautiful Island, easy to explore by car, and the distances to travel are easy. Well worth the effort.

Overall Kauai is now our favourite Island in Hawaii, and Poipu Beach our choice of location to be based, and this condo is a wonderfull "home" base for any visit to the Island of Kauai.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry your experience with the front desk management office was not pleasant or clear on the cleaning fees. This is not normal for the front office staff. I have notified the supervisor of this unacceptable behavior and she has taken care of that staff member. We always want our guests to be greeted with a warm Aloha spirit, and know exactly what charges they are to expect. Appreciate you letting us know so that we can eliminate unpleasant front office staff.

Back again!

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 4, this is probably our sixth time staying in this exact condo! We absolutely love the location, the decor, the kitchen, everything! Kiahuna offers pretty much everything you could want in a Hawaii vacation. There is the beautiful beach, and sprawling lawns for plenty of outdoor activities, fabulous snorkeling at PK's just down the road, great shopping and restaurants at the Kukui'ula Shops, and for the first time this year, the Poipu Beach Athletic Club has put in a FABULOUS gym, with a weight section, a cardio section and a yoga room where they offer classes several times a week. Both my husband and I were delighted that we could get our workouts in while the kids enjoyed the pool, waterslide, and snacks at Hapas poolside. I truly don't think you can beat this location for a true vacation getaway. This condo makes the perfect home base and gives you easy access to all the Hawaiian amenities you could want.

I should add that if you like to cook at home as we often do, this condo, has a pristine grill set up just below the downstairs exit from the condo. We utilized it almost every evening for our dinners! We will be back again for sure!

Incredible Condo for the whole Family

  • 5 of 5

We were wowed by the Garlands condo from the moment we walked in. The unit offered two spacious levels with the large living room and very nicely sized kitchen on the upper level and two bedrooms with two full bathrooms at the lover level. The condo was very nicely furnished. The upper level balcony offered very nice view and although you could not see the ocean from there, the beach was just a short walk away.

The beach was postcard worthy with beautiful views to the right and left. Even though it is shared with Sheraton, it felt private and never got crowded. It had a very clean yellow sand and offered a grass area for those who are not crazy about laying in the sand. Although the waves were not too good for buggy boarding, they are perfect for those first time surfing lessens. There are some rocks a short distance from the beach that offer a limited view of local fish, so grab your snorkeling gear.

Being next door to Sheraton had an advantage of having an option of a Luau that's within walking distance from the Kiahuna Plantation. If you decide to participate (book through the concierge), you can just walk across the beach without worrying about driving or finding parking.

Poipu is a very nice and quiet part of the island with several good restaurants and shops near by. The only "shocker" was that most of the places close at 10 pm (some at 9:00 pm). We came in very late from the airport and could not get anything to eat until next morning. If you are arriving late then have something to eat in Lihue before you head out to Poipu.

Overall, the Kiahuna Plantation and the Garlands condo are a great place to spend your Kauai vacation. The Garlands made the whole booking process very easy and kept us informed all the way. The very friendly concierges (at the main check in area and at the beach shack) will help you book any activities you want. Spots fill out quick, though, so take care of any bookings early. Also, Kauai is more of a nature island, so you probably won't find anything like jet skiing or parasailing like you would on Maui or Oahu.

I definitely recommend the Garlands and their condo.

P.S. If you rent a car, take a trip to the north end of the Hwy 550 from Waimea. What you'll see at the top cannot be described with words...

Fantastic base for a Kauai adventure

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) loved our stay in this clean, well-equipped, excellently located condo. Things we loved: the short walk to a gorgeous beach, use of the open-air gym and pool across the street (where you can order food/ drinks), great air flow through the condo, beautiful grounds with jaw-dropping trees and flowers. We cooked 2 out of 3 meals/ day and the kitchen was more than up to the task. We did it all: Waimea Canyon, a serious adventure to Makaleha Falls (4 hour hike to do just over 4 miles #where'sthetrail?), bouncy raft trip up the Na Pali coast, farmer's market, coffee plantation tour, lying in the sun, lots of lazing and relaxing. We'd definitely come back. As far as food goes: stock up on organics at Safeway --the Living Foods market (closer) is ridiculously expensive. We enjoyed our dinner at the pizza place in Koloa and at Keoki's Paradise across the street.

My friends who were in the twin beds pushed together suggested that the owners get a topper to make the bed softer, which they said they'd planned to do, so hopefully that won't be an issue when you stay in this lovely place.

Great location and great space

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 adults and 3 kids spent a week here. It is a wonderful location. Short walking distance to the beach, little shopping center and the pool. Short drive to a life guarded beach, bigger shopping center and Outfitters Kauai (we recommend the zip lining ages 7-74 had a blast). The front desk is very helpful and we learned a lot from the concierge and the island orientation on our first morning. I recommend attending; great info and tips. We would have missed the Wednesday night farmers market in Koloa if we hadn't talked to Gayle right away. Found everything we needed in the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.

Golf and Tennis - 4 tennis courts, 4 half basketball courts, pickleball and shuffleboard courts. Kiahuna Golf course across the street. Poipu Bay golf course (2 miles east) near the Hyatt and Puakea (in Lihue) are beautiful. After 4pm at Poipu Bay, you can play for $10 with a child (age 6-17) who plays free - you must have your own clubs and walk (amazing deal since green fees are $120-$185).

The Kukuiolono public course (6 miles west) is $7-9 and great for kids. The Wailua course is inexpensive and good. The Princeville and Kauai Lagoons courses are outstanding.
