There are only a select few units at Kiahuna Plantation that offer the location, convenience and a full panoramic ocean view like Kiahuna 17 beach house. We are located in building 4.

Make your next vacation a lasting memory of brilliant sunsets, manicured lawns, and sunny seashores. Don’t pack up and walk to the beach, experience the beauty of Kauai right from the comfort of your own private lanai. Read a book, sip some wine, or just lay back, relax and enjoy the rhythmic sound of the ocean. It doesn't get any better than this.


Sitting on 35 acres of manicured lawns and tropical gardens, Kiahuna delights the senses with fragrant flowers, beautiful lush plants and canopies of trees. An open ocean side lawn is perfect for outdoor games of catch or Frisbee, or lounging in the sun in one of Kiahuna’s complimentary beach chairs.

Step off the lawn to the white sand beach or into the gentle blue waters for a swim. Pick up snorkel gear at the Beach Hut to spy on the tropical fish. The Beach Hut, located adjacent to the Oceanside lawn, also carries cold beverages, sunscreen, light snacks and other rental equipment. The staff at the Beach Hut can book day cruises, snorkel adventures and many other island activities.

There is a $268 taxable check out cleaning fee payable to Castle Resorts at check in.

The property was well stocked, comfortable, close to the beach and everything we expected. We would stay there again. The owner was very responsive to our questions and needs.

We loved the view and having the beach a few steps away. Barbeques are close by and the condo is walking distance to very good restaurants.

Kiahuna Plantation is the perfect spot for a Kauai vacay; the beach is beautiful with good snorkeling and plenty of space on the sand. The condo is well-equipped with everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen to all the beach essentials: chairs, umbrella, boogie boards. Beach towels are available at the Beach Hut on property. The bed is very comfy. We were concerned that the condo would be a little cramped based on the pictures, but it is much more spacious than the pictures show. The bedroom has a spacious closet and there’s plenty of storage space in the kitchen. The lanai is furnished with a table and 4 chairs in addition to two loungers. Beautiful view of the ocean! The only downside to this rental is no a/c. It gets very warm in the afternoon in July; there is a ceiling fan in the living area and bedroom. The bedroom is comfortable at night with the fan over the bed; the kitchen/living space is much warmer since the condo faces west. There is always a lovely breeze so that helps. A beautifully landscaped property has a huge lawn for games, BBQing, or just sunbathing. Kiahuna Plantation is a gem and serves as a good home-base for westward activities (Waimea Canyon, Hanapepe, etc) and northern activities (Hanalei, NaPali coast, Wailua, Kilauea, helicopter tours).

We loved this property. We have stayed at multiple units and this by far was the best one yet. It was a plus to have laundry and a he bed was so comfortable. We will for sure rent from Jill again.

We had a wonderful time. The location is beautiful! Staff stayed after closing when we got in 1/2 hour late for check-in. We did not see any check-out instructions, but left things as we have for former rentals.

This property was in an amazing location, overlooking the Kiahuna Beach (private) and just a short walk from Poipu Beach (public). The view was great, and it was easy to walk out to the garden and get a lawn chair or even rent a beach chair to bring down to the beach. The waves on Kiahuna Beach can get big so I recommend being a decent swimmer if you want to hop in, but we felt fairly safe rolling with the waves. The property is also so close to a bunch of dining and shopping areas, so it was easy to grab a bite to eat or some groceries. I wish we had been able to stay longer and enjoy it even more!

This spot has a great beach directly in front as well as a quick walk to poipu beach. The view from the condo lanai is gorgeous! One call out, the pool is located at the health club which is a good 8-10 min walk up a hot uncovered hill. Its a great pool with nice restaurant but we ended up driving to the pool because it was such a hot walk. The condo is well appointed with dishes and a full kitchen.

Great location and nice unit for family of 4. Needs maintenance though. The safe does not work and could not be fixed. The dish washer was broken and did not work also. Patio table is cracked/broken in quite a few places and we were a little nervous about using it as it might shatter. Plus there is a bit of large dirt and smudges high up on the wall in the bedroom especially that need either painting or cleaning that is not getting done. Would return and on-site management company was super nice adn accomodating.

We love it here and this is our third time staying on this property. The unit has a great location and view and we were generally pleased overall with cleanliness and comfort. Great beach (high tide narrows it) and great views. Took surf lessons and easy to check out towels and chairs from the shack down by beach. The one thing I will say has nothing to do with the space or location but instead has to do with the people staying next to you or below you who make the experience as well and how staying here can sometimes be loud. We had a group below us who were college age and given the unit by parents (we assume) for their own personal room. They were loud and sound travels easy as there are no insulated windows. Plantation shutters are great for airflow but bad for sound. Cackling laughter and hoots and hollers at 12:30-1:00 at night were a distraction and woke us up numerous nights. Not the unit’s fault but also came home to find food thrown all over the lawn out back and even up on our lanai ( star fruit, grapes, a hot dog and partial bun… very strange). Just be aware that people forget about how sound carries through these units and how close we are all living together . Also, the couple next to us sat out on the lanai and smoked cigars. Again, they were less than 6 feet from our lanai and blowing cigar smoke nightly. I think people in general get selfish and self absorbed and/or intoxicated while on vacation, which in a place like this could impact your experience. That’s true everywhere. The difference is insulated windows versus none here and maybe management being more proactive about putting up notices regarding noise and smoking on lanai. . Other than that we had a good time. This unit was lacking boogie boards, parasol and some other beach items that we have had in previous units we rented here. Our friends also stayed here and switched units. Both of their units came with the items I mentioned above and snorkel fins and gear . Beds were comfortable and nice to have laundry in the unit. Thanks

Love the Kiahuna! This unit has an amazing view that you will never get tired of! Love Kauai, it’s such a special place.

We had an amazing stay at Jill’s place. We stayed here for our honeymoon in Kauai and when we got to the unit, it was even better than the pictures. Next to Kiahuna Beach, we only had to walk a few steps and we were at the beach. Would highly recommend Jill’s place for future travelers!

The property is fantastic, the view is stunning. The property is well equipped. I would definitely stay at your property again. My only negative comment is that Castle Resorts charged a cleaning fee (which I expected) and the cleaners did not do a job equal to the amount charged. There were water rings on the glass on the coffee table when we arrived and the shower could have been cleaner.

Our 2nd floor condo looked over a beautiful green lawn towards the ocean/sunset view. I was able to walk across the lawn and be on a swimmable sandy beach with few rocks. The waves are a bit too strong for young children but wonderful if you like body surfing or just floating in the waves. Pool towls and chairs can be checked out. The pool is across the main street. It is very nice with a waterslide, wading pool and jacuzzi. Condo was very updated with fully stocked kitchen utensils. Patio is a bit sunny in late afternoon but we managed. Overall a lovely place that I would visit again

January not the best month in most places, but Kauai was beautiful. Weather steady in upper 70's. The Plantation is very well located, and unit 17 as good as any with a great view.The bungalow is comfortable, well appointed. A step from the beach,great for swimming, pretty good for surfing some snorkeling,water temp just right.Stayed 2 weeks, not enough!

Just a short note to say that we were extremely please with the condo we had the opportunity to stay in during our recent vacation to Kauai. The location was great, privacy amazing, gorgeous beach and above all the condo was clean, comfortable, had an amazing view and decorated beautifully. We loved it and plan on coming back!!

Excellent condo with a perfect view. It was nice to just step out and be basically right on the beach. It didn't lack anything for basic needs and was very clean. I would highly recommend.

We went for our Honeymoon for 6 nights and did not want to leave. Kauai is beautiful of course and the property itself was everything the pictures show. The view is incredible. We BBQd most nights we were there and ate dinner on the balcony to watch the sunset every night - perfect location to see nightly sunsets. Walking distance to restaurants and a Starbucks as well. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Amazing! Beautiful location with incredible view. Condo was clean and had most of the basic needs. The only thing I would change is the view from the lanai was restricted when sitting down by overgrown bushes below. Laundry in the room was great also. This was a peaceful place to regroup!

This was a perfect place to stay - close to the beach, very spacious, with great balcony views of the Great Lawn and surf. It is walking distance to a small shopping area that includes a couple of restaurants and shops. The unit was clean, well furnished and provided lots of room for just the 2 of us. We enjoyed a drive to the North shore and especially liked the Wailua River kayak and Sacred Falls hike, Waimea Canyon and a cruise of the Napali Coast. We would definitely stay here again, and would even consider renting other units for a family retreat - we saw many such gatherings during our stay. Steve and Clare B.

Just a note to let you know we are back from vacation and had a wonderful time! Your condo was stunning and absolutely perfect for our South Shore stay. Thank you for all your help working with us on the arrangements. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sights, snorkeling, helicopter ride, luau, and restaurants nearby. We heavily researched options in the area and think we made a perfect choice....and we have certainly recommended your place to others! Mahalo!
