Kiahuna #123 - Architect Owned - Beautiful Renovation and Great Ocean View

Bedrooms 1
Space 640 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our beach house is located in Kiahuna Plantation at Poipu Beach on the south shore of Kauai.  The southern part of the island is known for sunny days and great breezes and Kiahuna is considered the area’s premier beach-front rental property, the only one in Poipu with its own white sand beach.

The condo's architecture is reminiscent of Hawaii's 19th-century plantation past and provides the classic Hawaiian setting for your stay on the island.  The buildings at Kiahuna are nestled in 35 acres of sprawling lawns, lush tropical gardens, lily ponds, a private lagoon and the largest orchid garden in Hawaii.  

Our condo #123 is on the top floor of Building 18, located between the ocean and the pool/fitness center.  As you'll see in the photos, it was completely renovated using top of the line finishes including granite counters, travertine tile and bamboo flooring as well as all new appliances, cabinetry, lighting and furniture.  The walls were removed between the kitchen and living room to create an open floor plan so you have unobstructed views of the ocean.    All the rooms have louvered windows and doors which lets the breeze pass right through and there are ceiling fans in the bedroom and living area that also keep it cool and comfortable. 

As soon as you walk in the door you have a great view straight through the condo to the ocean.  On the left is the bedroom with a king-size bed, TV, dressers and closet and on the right is the bathroom with a big walk-in shower and a separate vanity area.  The living, dining and kitchen are in one large vaulted space that opens to the lanai.  The kitchen is fully furnished and is great for preparing anything from fresh papaya for breakfast to fancy umbrella drinks and gourmet dinners.  

One of the best parts of the condo is the covered lanai that runs the whole width of the beach house.  There are over 15 feet of glass doors and windows that open to the lanai from the living area.  The lanai is furnished with a bar-height table and chairs so you have a wide, open view of the ocean and grounds.  It also has two lounge chairs which are a perfect place to relax, read and listen to the surf.

The advantage of staying in this unit is that the ceiling is vaulted to 14 feet high which makes the condo airy and open, and at night you can open the screen doors on the lanai to enjoy the ocean breezes while you sleep – something you can’t do in a ground floor unit.  It’s also nice because you don’t have the noise of another unit above you so it feels like a private retreat.   

Kiahuna’s beach is a quick walk through the beautifully landscaped  grounds.  There is a manicured lawn dotted with palm trees fronting the beach and that is where you will find the Beach Hut where you can get complimentary beach chairs and towels.  The Hut also offers snacks and rentals of various beach toys that you can charge to your room.  The beach is fairly private and it is used mostly by people staying at Kiahuna.  It connects to Poipu Beach which has more activity and good snorkeling.  Poipu was rated #1 by The Travel Channel and has been chosen as one of the most beautiful beaches in America.

We provide on-site management, staffed 24 hours a day.  You check in like a hotel, and the friendly staff is always available to assist you in any way.  The concierge at the Activities Desk is a great resource to help with ideas, directions and reservations for anything from dinner to helicopter tours, sunset cruises, tee times (at one of many nearby golf courses), horseback rides or luaus.  Guests have full complimentary access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club (right across the street) with aerobic equipment, treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, weight training machines and free weights.

There are a number of great restaurants nearby.  On the Kiahuna grounds is the historic plantation manager’s cottage built in 1930 that now houses the Plantation Gardens Restaurant and next door is Red Salt at the Koa Kea. Across the street is Poipu Village Shopping Center and down the street is Kukui'ula Village. They both have restaurants and shops that offer everything you could possibly need for your time on Kauai. 

We love Kauai and we looked for a long time to find a place that we would want to return to year after year.  #123 is that perfect place and we hope you consider it home too.

Wonderful stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this condo! Kiahuna Plantation resort is so splendid with the well maintained grass and gardens right down to the beautiful beach. This condo has been furnished for comfort and beauty. From walking in the door and seeing the ocean just as pictured, to the lanai, art work and well stocked kitchen and comfortable bed. Everything pristine! Even a yoga mat in the closet! 3 ceiling fans kept us plenty comfortable! Perfect for celebrating our 25th anniversary! We would love to come back!

We will be coming back!

The location was great, just short walk to the beach. The grounds were very well kept and very pretty too. The inside of the unit has had some wonderful renovations which make it feel modern but still maintains that feeling of aloha. Well stocked kitchen. My husband and I will absolutely seek this unit out again!

We had a great time in Kauai. It was our 5th trip and we always find new areas to explore! Your home is beautiful and we appreciated all of the little touches (great decor, beautiful artwork, bright airy living area with a beautiful tucked away bedroom!) We sat on the lanai for morning coffee (Kauai Coffee!) and watched the sun go down each night. The grounds surrounding the property were beautiful and it was fun to watched families gather, kids play and people come together outside in the open areas as well as the beach. It felt like a Utopian Society where everyone was able to enjoy each other... how refreshing in these times! We have stayed at resorts in the past but appreciated the privacy and feeling of home at Kiahuna 123. Thank you! We hope to be back!

Perfect Place To Stay!

Nicely updated; clean and comfortable. Beautiful ocean views from the balcony. Great location in Poipu. Used the pool and open air gym at the athletic club across the street. Many great places to eat and shop within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again!

A gem at the Kiahuna Plantation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love Kauai and for a trip back in April we rented this beautifully decorated and well equipped condo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The unit offers a very relaxing and welcoming island setting from the tasteful furnishings and Hawaiian art work to the wonderful ocean view from the lanai. The owners, Dean & Paul, provided everything we needed to feel right at home.

The condo is conveniently located on Poipu Beach and close to all the local sights, is easy to access and is situated on the beautiful grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation.

We highly recommend this condo and would love to stay there again!
