This beautiful 2 bedroom/2 bath 2-story beachy, tropical treehouse-feel condo is located on the 35 acres of impeccably landscaped tropical gardens of Kiahuna Plantation; considered to be the only beachfront complex in beautiful Poipu, Kauai. Year after year Poipu Beach is consistently voted one of the top 10 beaches in all of Hawaii by respected travel magazines.

This unit now has Air Conditioning installed on both floors!

Unit 140 is a contemporary decorated and furnished end unit conveniently located in the middle of the resort (Building 21) with a peek-a-boo view of the ocean along with the feel of being in a tropical treehouse. It offers privacy away from the road, the busyness of the beach, and the noise of the frogs in the beautiful lagoons. The upper floor greets you with a massive vaulted ceiling into the great room with open-concept living, an updated kitchen, dining area, and a spacious living room opens to the front and back balconies. Downstairs, the master bedroom has a king-size bed, ensuite bath, ample closet space, and a private lanai. Down the hall are a second full bath, washer/dryer, and second bedroom (2 twin beds) with ample closet space. The storage closet contains several boogie boards and other beach items. (We try to check on the stock of these items, but since they are unsecured, we cannot guarantee they will be there. However, let us know, and we will try to accommodate any special items before your arrival/during your stay.)

Scattered throughout the plantation, as well as near the unit’s front door, are well-maintained and impeccably clean barbecue grills if you wish to dine and enjoy the sunset, along with your favorite beverage. Full use of the Poipu Beach Athletic Club and pool is included in your stay.

Kiahuna Plantation has several large, well-maintained lawn areas great for socializing and family activities. The beach is absolute perfection with many water activities for all ages. Beach chairs and towels are complimentary for guests at “The Beach Hut” where you can book surf lessons along with several other activities. (Please review all House Rules and Policies before booking)

Kiahuna is minutes away from Old Koloa Town where historic plantation mystique, dining, and shopping are conveniently located. The island of Kauai is a magical place. The south shore has dozens of activities to suit whatever type of adventure you crave. From leisurely walks in the hills, surfing, golf, and horseback riding to incredible scuba diving, Poipu is located close to dozens of activities. No long drives are necessary to get you to island activities. The island of Kauai is considered to be one of the most relaxed and friendly islands. So, book your stay in Unit 140 and enjoy it all!

If you’re looking for a spacious, quiet, and updated condominium, look no further. Kiahuna is considered one of the best Hawaiian places to seek adventure, peace, or the trip of a lifetime.

We had the best time in Kauai, and loved our condo! This is the 4th time we've stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation, and this was by far the best condo yet. We loved the close location to the beach, and appreciated the upgraded bathrooms, A/C and in-condo washer/dryer. All of that made our stay that much more comfortable and easier. We can't wait to stay again. Thank you so much!

Wonderful Location. Great room is beautiful. Unfortunately, fridge was not cleaned when we arrived and handle was broken. The bedrooms were quite musty and it took a couple of days to air them out. Management was very responsive and apologetic so that helped :) The dishwasher did not clean the dishes so we had to do them by hand. I imagine these were one off issues but unfortunate. We did have a great stay :)

The condo has such a nice breeze pouring through as it is open on three sides with so many windows and vaulted ceiling with great light. The views of lush gardens are very pleasant and you can even see a peak of ocean. Very close to the beach so you can easily head down and pop back to the condo as needed. Location is also in the heart of Poipu so close to everything like markets and restaurants. Bedrooms are roomy and the two bathrooms are very nice. Main bedroom has great views of a large lawn and gardens. While finishes are a bit older, everything is in working order and seems well kept. What a splendid spot to spend time on Kauai. This is such a great property I'd stay here again in a heart beat.

Great property with beach only a short walk away. Beach was never too crowded so we always found a place to sit. Kirk provided us with a ton of helpful info before our check in regarding the unit and activities in the area.

Nice stay, great location and condo for our family of 3. Only issue was the property sprinkler system starting very early every morning around 5 am, it was loud inside the master bedroom.

Amazing location- just a short walk to the beach and several restaurants. It also came with access to a great swimming pool for kids across the street. The unit itself was well-maintained and a good setup for our family of 3.

We love this condo as this was our third stay here. Location and amenities are awesome and now the place has air conditioning to boot! Need to fix that loose toilet seat in the master bath though :-)



June 2023
2 adults and 3 kids stayed a full week and had a wonderful time. Great pool (perfect for kids) and easy beach access. Plus close to all the fun in Poipu. We have been to this resort 3 times and always have a great time. You can’t beat it

Our family LOVES this place. This was our sending time here and we won’t stay anywhere else. The unit is beautiful and well maintained, the property is perfect for our active family and the host is exceptional. The new AC units really made us comfortable! Gorgeous as always, we are already planning our next visit. Mahalo, Kirk! 🌴

We really enjoyed this unit! We've stayed at Kiahuna many times and we really liked this unit. The location was great for us - close to everything - parking, walkway to the pool, great access to the lawn. We would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed this condo for our celebration of marriage. Our adult kids and families stayed in other 2 BR units at Kiahuna (not as nice as ours), and our condo was the home base for meals together. The upstairs living area is spacious and very inviting. The owner was responsive to any questions we had. We highly recommend this unit!


Peter P.

This rental was the perfect home base for our family vacation in Kauai. The condo was well stocked, spacious, and knowing we had a washer and dryer in the unit, we were able to pack light. The provided beach umbrella, boogie boards, and surfboard made our time on the beach so fun!... definitely recommend this property for families. Very quiet grounds and lanai. Kirk was very accommodating and responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

Our fifth trip to Kiahuna plantation, first time in a 2-bedroom unit. Location was easy walk to beach, close to new BBQ units, and beautifully landscaped. The bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs with the kitchen & living upstairs. We knew this, but found it to be a lot of up and down for a 75+ year old man with a bad hip. Otherwise, maintenance quickly addressed a few small issues we had. Beds were comfy and as always, the roosters made sure we didn't sleep in!!!

The location was in a nice setting and was very peaceful and quiet. We especially liked the upstairs living room, kitchen and decor. Very comfortable and clean and a short walk to the beach.

A very comfortable and clean unit in Kiahuna Plantation. Walk to the beach on paved walkways. Nice grounds and more space and lovely gardens around the units - unlike the nearby hotels. Kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans, utensils. (but not much in the way of spices and cooking supplies .... which was to be expected) Includes use of the pool and gym across the street, a nice bonus! Quiet and peaceful at night. We enjoyed our stay.

We first visited Poipu's Kiahuna Plantation in 2009 and really enjoyed our stay. When planning a visit for summer 2022, we knew we wanted to stay at this condo complex again. This time, we came with our 2 adult children and 80 year old mom. We stayed in a 2 story condo unit- 2 bedroom/2bath downstairs; kitchen and a spacious dining/living room upstairs. All rooms had fans and louvered screened windows for ventilation - no AC but we were comfortable with the steady breeze. The windows do let in a fair amount of noise (sprinklers, roosters, people) - light sleepers should be aware. The beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable. With 5 in our party, one had to sleep on sofa bed upstairs which was less comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with basic necessities, and we were able cook meals. Gas barbecues are available nearby. Our unit is close to parking but not subject to road noise. It was a 3-minute walk to the ocean. There are lots of plants and lawn around. The location of the complex is central to the south coast of Kauai and convenient. ~25 minutes to Lihue (airport, Costco, Safeway). There is a small shopping center across the street with restaurants, clothing, jewelry, souvenirs + a general store (food, sundries). A few minutes west there is another larger center with more restaurants and shopping. The Poipu Athletic Club is across the street and guests at the condo have access privileges. The club has a great family friendly pool, tennis courts, fitness center, grass volleyball + restaurant. Free towels for use at the club are included. The Kiahuna Planation also provides free towels to checkout at the beachfront rental station (they also offered boogie boards and snorkels for rent). We enjoyed the location and amenities at Kiahuna Plantation - it was a great home base for our week in Kauai.

this was a great place for my family to stay. easy access to the beach and large grounds for my kids to explore. Also walking distance to lots of good restaurants and shopping. The only draw back was the noisy sprinklers woke us up every night. I guess it is the price to pay for great landscaping.

I’ve been coming to the kiahuna for almost 40 years and it has a timeless beauty that does not change with time. We love this particular unit for our family of four… the proximity to LittleFish Coffee, the Poipu Athletic Club, the pool and the beach. The sea turtles were particularly magical this year, and our kids were older and up for some bigger adventures (ziplining!). Thankful to the owner for maintaining such a clean, lovely property and being so responsive to communication. Every time we are able to go is a blessing and a gift!!

This condo was perfect for a family of 4. The location was great making it easy to travel either way on the island. Grounds were beautiful and the towel/chair check out so convenient. Adequate dishes, cookware etc. Comfortable beds. The pool is amazing and fairly quiet which we so nice. And the food at the pool is delicious. ( *the only thing we didn't check on when we rented this was that it doesn't have AC so it was quite balmy and tropical at night. ) Over all a wonderful place to stay for a family!

Located in quiet part of Kiahuna, nice breeze not blocked by other buildings. Adequately furnished except the TV is too small for the living room.

We loved every part of our stay at Kiahuna. The property was gorgeous and perfectly situated on Poipu Beach. The upstairs kitchen and great room offered open views and cooling breezes and was an ideal place to gather as a group to play and socialize.

This property was fabulous for our party of 4 (4 adults). The dedicated beach was beautiful and the location to coffee, food, shops and hotels was within walking distance. I also loved the short drive to island activities. I would this place again!



April 2022
We really enjoyed our time in ye olde Unit 140 at Kiahuna Plantation. It was a great fit for our family with 3 adults and 2 kids. The living space upstairs is really open with decks on both the north and south sides of the unit so you could get nice airflow (no A/C), the vaulted ceilings really made it feel spacious. The downstairs floor has the bedrooms and bathrooms. It's was great to hang on the deck and see the sun and stars. There's a tiny view of the water and it's a quick walk to the beach. Kiahuna is immaculately maintained and lush. Access to the Athletic Club is a nice — a good spot for the kids to play in the pool while adults ate/drank/talked. Do note: it is across the street so it's not part of Kiahuna Plantation (and many other folks are members). Overall, this unit was great. If I had a quibble, the hide-a-bed couch upstairs wasn't particularly comfortable. But that's minor -- perfect spot and Poipu is a ton of fun!

Hi, we loved the unit. However, our main annoyance was that the primary bedroom showers did not drain well. Every shower ended with a couple of inches of water in it. We suspect it was sand but we’d think there could be a way for the property management to address that. Otherwise, it was great!


Ross A.

Our family had a great time in this unit (which is as advertised) in a great location! The owner was great in responding to a few COVID-requirement details in the lead up to the trip. We look forward to a return stay.



March 2022
Great condo overall and it worked well of our family of four on a week long vacation to Popui. We loved the condo layout and everyone was very pleased with the condo accommodations and comfort. All of the amenities of the Kiahuna Plantation and Popui Beach Club also made it amazing stay. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and Kirk was a wonderful host. We plan to visit again in the future and we are hopeful this condo will be available.

Top notch across the board. Beautiful property at Kiahuna. Perfect location within the resort. Light airy living space and incredibly relaxing. Kirk was a fabulous host, ensured we had all we needed and responded immediately to the questions we had. Can’t wait to return!

The size of the complex was daunting initially, but once we settled in the suite everything was peaceful. Kirk has a very nice setup for a family. Lovely open living area on the upper floor with peaceful garden and peekaboo ocean views. We spent quiet evenings on the lanai watching stars fall. The unit is equipped with beach equipment and plenty of gear for the smallest travellers. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Kirk!

Grounds were immaculate, wonderful staff- cleaned outdoor grills everyday, beautiful surroundings, location- short walk to ocean beach and swimming pool, plenty of parking, an hour away from west and north shore. Communication with Kirk was very easy. The unit was split in 2 levels- made for great spaces to just enjoy the place. Great front and back decks. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was made for cooking- otherwise good restaurants across the street. Would stay here again-Poipu Beach area is brings out the kid in you!

Beautiful property, well maintained, good sandy beach for swimming and kids. Close to many good restaurants and shops but feeling secluded. Condo had all one needs in the kitchen and living area.

Great end unit with nice high ceilings upstairs. Bonus that the rooms are downstairs so no lugging luggage upstairs and the in unit washer/dryer is very handy! Will be saving this unit for future visits!

We have stayed in this unit before and we’re very happy to return. The layout and location work very well for our family.

First big trip since Covid. As you need tests/vaccines to even get on the plane, everything felt very well run. Once at the condo, we settled right in. It was a very comfy home base for our 5 days and we would have loved to stay longer. The pool is about a 7 min walk away. they have some of the best lunch around. The beach is to die for, esp in Kauai, which can super rocky beaches. The house it self was well set up. If you are looking to watch Football or something like that, be warned, the TV is tiny. We didn't care, thats not what we were there for. One thing to note: there is no AC. The windows take care of this, if you are too hot a cool shower fixes this and then you are fine. But that being said, you have to be careful about closing all the windows/sliding before you go to bed or you will be wakened early but sprinklers (4am) and then just all the families running around with their early risers. Close the everything up and you are just fine!

We love Kiahuna and have stayed in many different units over almost 40 years of visiting Kauai. This unit was perfect for my wife and I and our daughter's family, with out two young grandkids. We would definitely book this unit again, if the opportunity arises.

My family of 4 absolutely loved our stay here. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. The location couldn’t be better. It’s a short walk to the beach, grocery stores, coffee shop, restaurants, etc. The kids absolutely loved the pool. Kirk was very timely in responding to any messages before and during the trip. We will definitely return and I highly recommend this property. You won’t be disappointed.

I have travelled to Kiahuna Plantation for 45+ years. Came as a child and now bring my family often. Unit 140 is a great condo with a great location. It is a quiet end unit that is a quick walk to the beach. Kirk, the owner, is wonderful to work with and booking with him was effortless. We had a wonderful time for our 2 weeks in his unit.

We rented 3 units at Kiahuna Plantation for our 3 families. This unit was clean, well stocked and located about mid property allowing easy access to both the beach and pool/restaurants. Great communication with owner/property manager. Mahalo!

We loved this place! It was large and clean, and had everything we needed. The location was amazing also. Beautiful grassy area right outside and pathways that you could walk to the beach throughout the day and in the evenings under the stars. We had an amazing time!


Emmanuelle T.

Great space for our family and perfect location! The only challenge was being able to use the kitchen as there were no staples provided (due to COVID cleaning procedures). Fortunately, Kirk was excellent at communicating and helped us prepare for our stay. Unit is spacious, comfortable, clean and close to activities for the whole family.


Rob C.

We have stayed at Kirk’s property twice now and it is beyond gorgeous! Before that we stayed in 1 story units throughout Kiahuna Plantation, but as our family grew we needed more space. Kirk is quick at responding to any correspondence and Castle Resorts is always helpful when called upon. Highly recommend.

This unit was perfect! It was very clean, well maintained and had just the right amount of paper products, towels, and kitchenware. The unit is located in a quiet part of the resort, yet a few minutes walk to the sand. Kirk was very easy to work with and responded to our messages, promptly. Highly recommend!

We’ve stayed at kiahuna for years and love the location and old school feel of the property. There is no A/C so pick your location appropriately. This unit was an end unit that faced east, so most of wind is directly into unit. Makes a big difference versus the middle units. Even with a good cross breeze we utilized the fans in unit 24/7. Bare minimum kitchen/cleaning items but wasn’t an issue, a quick run to big save solved the issue. Kiahuna in general is not a 5* luxury property. It’s dated and has its drawbacks, but I wouldn’t stay anywhere else on Kauai

Due to Covid, we had to continue our Hawaii trip several times. Kirk was very accomodating all the way, quick to respond to questions, reached out and checked in, etc. The property is great, with everything you need. We would definitely book here again.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
