Kiahuna 163 has a fantastic ocean view of the waves breaking against the beach, which is just steps away. We just (Dec 2022) completed a full, complete remodel . . . air conditioning added, all new furniture, all new flooring and tile, all new appliances, all new mahogany doors & trim, all new kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Besides being completely remodeled, let me tell you what makes our unit special, and then more about the property itself.

Location matters!!! With ~330 condos at Kiahuna Plantation Resort, some units are located on the beach . . . the ocean is right there but it can also be crowded which cuts into your privacy. Then some units are away from the beach next to the road where you'll definitely hear cars driving by . . . and some will find this too noisy. Our unit, is located about 200 feet from the ocean in the heart of Kiahuna Plantation Resort. This part of the resort is always in high demand, because the units are quiet, close to the beach with an ocean view but still affordable.

Our specific unit is a second-floor, end-unit, which means there are more windows to leave open and enjoy the breeze . . . and you don't have to worry about closing every window when you want to go to the beach (which you'll have to do with bottom floor units) . . . just leave and the condo remains nice and pleasant while you're gone. For days when you’d like a little bit more than a breeze, turn on the air conditioning in the living room or the bedroom. Our unit is a one-bedroom non-smoking condo that sleeps 2 adults and 2 children and is fully outfitted for all your needs.

The condition of your unit matters too!!! Kiahuna Plantation Resort was built more than 40 years ago across 35 acres, and while the resort grounds are beautiful . . . many individual units have been minimally updated over the years, and it shows as soon as you walk in. To that end, we just completely remodeled our unit in December 2022. We opened up the kitchen area . . . we not only modernized it with new cabinets, counters and appliances, but we also wanted to brighten up the unit and open up the kitchen to allow those in the kitchen to feel connected to those in the living and dining room. We also re-designed the bathroom so now there’s a large walk-in shower to rinse off after your stay at the beach. All new furniture . . . nothing was spared to ensure the beauty of Kiahuna Resort was matched inside our unit as well. Lastly, you’re vacationing in a tropical paradise . . . so we took care to make sure the unit and its furnishings feel like you’re staying on a tropical resort and not some sterile hotel room.

Kiahuna Plantation Resort was developed more than 40 years ago when there were virtually no vacation properties on the sunny south side of Kauai. The property is located on Poipu Beach, which the Travel Channel called one of the best 10 beaches in the world . . . for three straight years. The resort was designed to have the laid-back feel of an old tropical resort, with all low-rise buildings which are spread out across 35 acres of grounds.

The Poipu Beach Athletic Club (PBAC) is just across the road, and our guests have full access to the pool, workout room and tennis courts.

Please look over our pictures to get a sense of our unit, Kiahuna and Kauai. If you’d like to stay in our unit, please check the calendar and if the dates are available, we’d love to have you stay.

I stayed at this property with my husband and 7 year old son mid March. From the moment we stepped foot onto the grounds we knew it would be hard to leave. The condo itself and views from the lanai were beautiful, even more so than the pictures convey. Everything was so clean! The condo was spotless and the grounds were perfectly manicured. My only regret was that we did not book a longer stay. We utilized the beach hut for beach towels, snorkel gear and beverages. The process was easy and convenient. There are restaurants, shops and local coffee in close walking distance. Two nights a week there is a luau at the hotel next door and we enjoyed hearing the music while we sat on the lanai and watched the stars. (Pro tip): You could even walk the beach and catch some of the show. Other good to know info: -The beach gets busier throughout the day, but it never felt over crowded. If you're an early bird (out before 9) you'll mostly have the beach to yourself. -Parking is first come first serve, but we never had an issue finding parking close to the condo. -There is so much that is walkable in the area including the turtles at Poipu beach. If you are on the fence about booking this property - this is your sign to do it! You will not regret it! I'd still be there right this moment if I could!

Lovely condo and a prime location at the resort. Have an ocean view, privacy, and breezes off the ocean. Bright, super clean, comfortable, everything new. The grounds are immaculate. The communal bbq’s by the lagoon are very close. We enjoyed bbqing and sitting at the picnic tables for dinner. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Wow! This unit has been so beautifully updated, there are not words. Kiahuna Plantation is a peaceful oasis among the busy resorts in Poipu, and this unit ranks among the best! It was very quiet, and furnishings, bedding and well-equipped kitchen made it feel cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the many opportunities for a good daily walk, the lounge chairs on the lawn overlooking the waves, and the proximity to the shopping and restaurants right across the road. We did not get a chance to check out the pool and fitness center, but perhaps on our next visit! We would definitely rent this unit again! Owners were very responsive to any questions we had, and resort staff were all friendly and professional.

The unit is very clean. The bathroom remodel is great, very nice shower. Kitchen the nicest we have be in at the Plantations, nice pots and pans and utensils. Wonderful view of the ocean from the kitchen table and the lanai. Thanks for a great stay. (We did leave 3 puzzles for who ever is next.)

This condo was perfect for my husband and I. The view from the lanai is amazing. The house was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. The amenities are great, everyone around the resort is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Great condo. It's been updated and has excellent views and quiet. Have stayed on the property for several years, this is the best we've had. Has all the amenities you would need. We would never leave Kiahuna.

My husband and I spent 9 nights at this condo in September. The condo was updated, clean & comfortable. The pictures on the website don’t do it justice! The views of the ocean were amazing! It was very quiet & relaxing. The location was awesome! It is walking distance to restaurants & shops and a short drive to additional beaches, shops & attractions. The owner was very responsive to my emails. The staff on site were very friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

Closet doors were very difficult to open. Exhaust fan in bathroom did not work. Even with detailed instructions for the TV we never could figure out how to use it. However, the unit was very nicely furnished and clean with the exception of a little bit of mold in the shower niche. The bed was very comfortable and had a great dresser for clothing. Loved the pictures and decor. The view was beautiful. Great Lanai !! It was well equipped with beach amenities as well!! Mahalo, Ken!!! We would recommend your unit and hope to use it again ourselves!! Linda and Bob

Condo was amazing and location was perfect! Housekeeping was another issue. They never showed up on the days they were scheduled to the point we had to track down clean towels and toilet paper. Front desk was notified as well. Other than that would definitely go back.

My husband and I went on a week long trip to celebrate our baby moon with our 2 year old. We had a wonderful time. The property is absolutely beautiful, the beaches are big and sandy. Best beach out the south shore in our opinion. Located close to shops, main little town and other beaches it is a great location. Condo itself is just as listed. Great view, air conditioning and fans were great, comfortable bed and nice bathroom, beautiful Garden AND Ocean view. One part that was confusing was the pool is not near the beach on property you actually have to cross the main road and go up the hill to access the pool, gym and tennis courts. There is poolside service and a little restaurant just not conveniently located. Would stay again, was a wonderful trip.

The setting at Kiahuna is beautiful, with a short walk over the lawn to the beach. The unit is bright and comfortable with a well supplied kitchen. Shops and rec center with pool are an easy walk away. The balcony is perfect for relaxing any time of day. Definitely worth a return visit.

We had a great stay! The condo was beautifully updated and a great location with a beautiful ocean view from the balcony and kitchen. We met a group of family and loved the grassy area and beach-our kids took surf lessons and had an amazing time. We had a great experience-my only minor comments would be to add hooks in the condo for cloths, purses, etc and to include a designated area to hang wet swimsuits-maybe some hooks in the shower. Their was a sign to not hang wet swimsuits on the balcony but we didn't really have any other option. We used the kitchen quite a bit and the appliances were very nice-stocking the kitchen with cooking spray would be nice-we ended up buying some. The pool is a short walk away across the street and you can order food & drinks-in an ideal world the pool would be located on property but it didn't hinder our great experience at all! We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at this recently updated condo. Nice kitchen, bathroom, comfortable accommodations. The BBQs on the grounds were appreciated after a stop at Costco. Not right on the beach but nice view and you can hear the waves. A new coffee maker would be nice it took 23 minutes to make a pot of coffee in the morning!

Partial ocean view from balcony, nice/new decor, kitchen offerings supply just okay, excellent beach location, no washer/dryer in unit communal option only. I misread that in description. There are two AC units one in bedroom and one in living room which were great to have since we were surrounded by a few families with crying babies morning, noon and early evening. I would say this unit is best for families as you are very close to other units and the sound travels easily. We kept the windows closed most of the time because of the noise traveling. Luck of the draw when you rent, not the owners fault. It was fun to watch the surfers school giving lessons.

We have stayed at Kiahuna many times over the years. Unit 163 is among the nicest units we’ve rented. Its location is just off the main lawn with a great view of the ocean. It’s an upstairs corner unit which feels very private because of the vegetation despite other buildings being close by. The interior and furnishings were recently refreshed in a warm and inviting current island style which uses materials and woods inspired by the natural surroundings of the island with a slight nod to historical island traditions. The unit is very well appointed including a nicely equipped kitchen. Mahalo for sharing your beautiful island home with us. We look forward to staying in this unit on future trips to Kauai.

April 2023
Loved the location not only to the surrounding areas but to a wonderful beach. The grounds were beautifully kept and all the staff we interacted with where very nice and helpful. Our unit was phenomenal...just perfect! The only small disappointment was that the pool was across the street and consequently we never used it. I would love to rebook this same unit again in a flash! EXCELLENT! We loved our vacay! thanks!

April 2023
This was a great property in a superb location. Beautifully renovated, just steps from the beach and Kauai did not disappoint. We hope to be back soon!

We had a wonderful stay at this condo! This unit is updated beautifully with all new furniture and has a wonderful view of the beach. Here are some things about the unit/resort that we loved: - It is just a short walk to the beach which is directly in front of the resort. It is very easy to go back to the unit if needed during your beach day. -The resort was beautiful and well maintained. We received a towel card for each guest when we checked in and beach towels are available at the hut near the beach. They also rent umbrellas for $10 day/$30 week. The resort does have lounge chairs available that are on the grass area above the beach. The lounge chairs are not allowed on the beach. There are upright chairs that can be used by guests on the beach and they can be checked out at the beach hut. -The Poipu Shopping Village is directly across the street from the resort which is only about a 5-minute walk. There are a number of shops, restaurants and a general store - All appliances are new. This unit has a dishwasher which we appreciated (dish tabs were provided). There is an ice maker in the freezer which we used daily. The tap water also tasted great. -At the time of our stay, there was a closet full of beach gear. There were beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear in the closet. It looked like it was all items that guest have left behind (sounds like these items are not guaranteed). We highly recommend this unit and hope that we will be able to return to Kauai!

Wanted to get away from the day to day "rat race" of Silicon Valley and this is just what the doctor ordered. A nice place to unwind in a beautiful setting. Conveniently located to many activities if you wanted to; or just to sit and enjoy the views and sounds of the ocean.

It was a lovely place. The airport is about a 25 minute drive. We had perfect weather. We went to a couple of the hotels around for food and drinks. There is a market across the street and it is pricey but convenient. Would go back and stay again.

Ken, the owner, was most helpful throughout the entire process of booking and answering quickly any questions or concerns. Thanks Ken and until the next time!!!!!!!!! Mahalo

This is a 2nd floor, end unit located at the back corner of the big garden. It's an ideal setting; both beautiful and convenient. The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and there are large, effective ceiling fans which keep things cool. The owner is very communicative and friendly; we had postponed our trip because of Covid and he was very helpful.

We loved our stay here and will gladly stay here again -- highly recommend!!! The unit is located on the Kiahuna Plantation Resort, nestled in between the Sheraton and Marriott properties in Poipu -- which offers quick access to nearby restaurants, shopping and spas. It's about a five minute walk to the beach, it's near the community laundry facility, and it's also fairly quiet (no traffic noise, just potential neighbors). The condition is really nice from the recent remodel and the furniture is in great shape, though the bed had a firmer mattress than I would've preferred (without any sort of padding/pillow top), though my husband loved it. Because the unit faces the setting sun, you can see beautiful colors during sunset, but it's fairly hot in the afternoons (even with shutters closed), though there are ceiling fans in every room and extra box/floor fans if you need them. You'll have basic bath towels provided, along with toilet paper, paper towels, toiletries and the kitchen comes fully stocked with equipment that you'd expect from a vacation rental (though no spices -- not sure if that's a COVID rule to not even keep salt/pepper from tenant to tenant). You can get one beach towel per person from the beach hut and free low-rise lawn chairs, though you can rent additional umbrellas and Tommy Bahama chairs for the day or week (at the time, the unit has two Tommy chairs, one umbrella and we left a cooler bag and vinyl beach mats).

We had a fantastic stay at this beautifully updated condo. The kitchen is very well stocked and the unit has several boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas. The trees off the patio provided a nice afternoon shade on the deck when needed. We look forward to another stay. The owners description of this unit is spot on.

Great location in the Kiahuna property. Short walk to beach. Sitting on the patio over looking the garden. The space was perfect for our family with 2 kids.

We were really smitten with this condo. The design is so beautiful and thoughtful and we really enjoyed all the little details. We would definitely like to stay here on our next trip. One slight disappointment was that the pictures showed a small stereo in the kitchen and as such, we did not pack a Bluetooth speaker, however it wasn’t there when we arrived so we couldn’t listen to music over dinner. This was a trivial detail that had little impact on what was overall a wonderful experience. We highly recommend this condo to others.

My family of 4 had a fantastic stay at this beautifully updated immaculate condo. The kitchen is very well stocked and the unit has several boogie boards. There is a lovely view of two large trees and a grass lawn from the deck. We would reserve again in a heart beat.

My wife and I decided to go back to Kauai to celebrate her 50th birthday, with my birthday 3 days later. This being a milestone BD for her, I wanted it to be perfect. However, the word perfect does not do this property and the owners justice. IT WAS BETTER THAN PERFECT! The property, the location, the ease of use were amazing. Our comfort level with the this unit was so high, we found it difficult to leave to do the activities we had planned as we just wanted to stay put. Could not have asked for more and look forward to using this exact unit again as soon as we go back. Thank you!!

I have stayed at Kiahuna Plantation many times and the property is still lovely. The condo is clean, well-maintained and just a quick walk away from the beach. The kitchen was equipped for cooking. There is no air conditioning and it was hot (August) during our stay, but we borrowed a fan from the check-in people so had two fans to make sleeping comfortable in the condo. Overall a five-star stay!

Our family has stayed at Kiahuna Plantation many times and always enjoy our stay. The property is beautiful, the staff are lovely and the location is perfect for families & friends to gather. This unit is beautifully remodeled and probably the nicest condo we’ve rented at Kiahuna. We were also pleasantly surprised that boogie boards were in the unit for use.

We are so happy we chose this unit over the others that were available! They did the updates very well and the furniture is nice. After staying here I don’t think I’d want to stay in any of the other units with the old, out-dated furnishings, etc. The unit being on the end make it so you get the most out of the trade winds at night to cool it down. Fantastic. Lastly, loved that the place was set back off the beach, made it very peaceful and quiet. Can’t wait to be back.

We loved staying in #63! Definitely a 5-plus! We have stayed at Kiahuna Plantations several times previously and this condo was definitely the nicest. Elegantly updated and tastefully decorated. It was great having the snorkeling supplies (including fins in many sizes) and beach umbrellas available in the condo. Ken was super responsive as was the on-site propery management. The grounds are gorgeous and the beach is just a quick walk away. We also took advantage of the Athletic Club across the street (no charge)- enjoyed playing tennis (we brought our rackets, but they have rackets to lend) and cooling off in the pool afterwards. We'll definitely stay in #63 on our next trip to Kauai!

Just got back from spending 3 weeks in Kauai. Wanted to tell you how beautiful the remodel is on unit 63. Loved the floors, cabinets, omg the bathroom was amazing! We couldn't think of anything that would have made it better. We've been coming to Kauai for 12 years & we had more rain then we've ever had. The one thing we loved the most were your ceiling fans, never been around ones that put out so much air. If you could let us know the make & model, we have very high ceilings in our home & you could actually feel the air moving. Very nice job on everything! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us & we will be back next year! Just have to figure out when!

The renovations and upgrades in this unit were very well done. The unit was very clean, comfortable, and perfect for our two person stay. The mid-stay cleaning service was a great feature as well as the towel service for beach and pool. The grounds are beautiful with a short walk to the beach or across the street to shops and variety of restaurants. Great location and short drives to anywhere on the island. The pictures of the beach here don't do it justice, it's the perfect swimming spot. The kitchen was well-stocked for cooking and had all the essentials and more. Very comfortable, large bed and newly renovated bathroom was perfect. Nice selection of beach supplies, snorkeling gear and other items available to rent on site as well. We were not ready to leave and will definitely be back!

Awesome condo, 2nd floor corner unit. Blooming Plumeria trees and tropical foliage with expansive garden view off the lanai. Tropical breezes through the unit are augmented by best ceiling fans we've ever seen in a vacation rental! Affordable, quiet, private, and comfortable with the beach just a short stroll around the corner. Nice wood finishes, beautiful local artwork, well stocked kitchen, firm bed(s), and a smattering of beach toys. Very relaxing place with helpful and knowledgeable owners. Couldn't have picked a better place to unwind thanks to Ken and Barbara!
