The Kiahuna Plantation is a beautiful complex with expansive green spaces. Our unit is located in quiet location away from the busier/louder buildings.

My wife and I spent 4 days here and had a fabulous time. The condo was tidy and had sand chairs, an ice chest, an ironing board, snorkle gear and a boogie board to use as we wished. The 3 minute walk on the beautiful property grounds to the beach made our time here even more memorable!

View is really nice Could use updates in the kitchen and furniture Walk to the beach easily Walk back is up hill Windows and frames needed cleaning It got really hot around 4pm because the sun shines directly onto the lanai

Positives: - great location - close to beach, shops - clean - fitness centre has good facilities - Apartment is well equipped Things that weren’t so good: - the cleaning fee is outrageous! - fitness centre with pool is separate and across the road. It is good but it is only open till 6.45pm which is a bit limiting. - we were there for 8 nights but had no change of sheets/ towels/ etc. I would have expected this especially given the cleaning fee - check out is a bit of a hassle if you are leaving early but want to use beach towels before you go as you can’t return then till after 8am. - some tea and more coffee would be good together with milk

Place was clean, bright and close to the beach. The pool is across the street but the kids still had lots of fun. Nice being so close to poipu beach with the turtes and seals.

Love this nice little place! Has all of my favorite places near by! My family owns a home here, but we had a lot of people in town, so we needed to rent a little place for a few others to stay at that was near by! This place has a fair price, and was in walking distance from pretty much everything nearby!! Also as everything you need inside! Bed, shower, kitchen! It was great! We will definitely be going back to this place soon!

The condo is not as shiny as the pictures seem. Had several maintenance issues to include a rotting baseboard in the shower - the showerhead is pretty much sprays out of of the shower and there is no curtain. The kitchen sink leaks under the cabinet, and they were standing water with mold. The entire condo was pretty dirty to include lots of sand and candy wrappers plus chocolate on the furniture. It had two extra futons as advertised, but NO extra bedding for these mattresses. Several of the jalise windows did not work and the second box fan is broken.

The property was nice. Loved the beach access. The listing I chose said ‘Beachfront’ and it’s anything but. Our building was actually the furthest from the beach, a short 10 min walk, closest to the main road. The complex was very quiet though. The dining room table was filthy and had a ton of dried food and dirt stuck to it. We grabbed a bowl for dinner and it had dried popcorn and butter stuck all over it. The next night grabbed a dish from the cabinet and it slipped right out of my hand, from all the grease. Needless to say, we washed dishes before being able to use them. The couch, chairs and dining room chairs are FILTHY. We sat on towels. Some of the stains were a little suspicious…so I didn’t want to take any chances. The set up is adorable. Just needs more love and better cleaning services. I would definitely pick the same resort, just another condo though. All in all, we left with happy hearts and just worked around the areas that needed love. Mahalo!

The appartment was well equipped, but some things were old and could be renewed. We enjoyed our stay because Poipu beach was near :) and the restaurants nearby served delicious food!

We had a great time at this property even though we didn't really used all the amenities it provided. The area is great, really close to Poipu beach. Beautiful location. Will definitely try to return!

For a family of six looking for a simple Kauai getaway this spot was perfect. WIth access to the pool/fitness centre across the road and and easy walk to the beach there were plenty of options to keep the family entertained.

The room looked nice online but there is lots of wear and tear. The beds were hard as rocks and it would have been nice to have an air conditioner. Shower was not cleaned very well and it started to smell moldy after a couple of days.. the cabana pool looked large online but it was so small in real life…Kauai was beautiful so that part was great. Poipu is a good location to start from each day…beach is nice but surf is a little strong

This is our 2nd time staying at Kiahuna Plantation. We love the beach there & the grounds on the property are kept up so nice. Our unit was only a short walk to the beach, so it was worth saving a bit of money with the garden view. The condo was tastefully decorated, well supplied & had some nice sleeping pads for use in addition to the sleeper sofa, so it was easy to accommodate our family of four. I'd recommend this unit to anyone that doesn't require an ocean view.

This is a very nice place to stay, close to a beautiful beach, though you have to walk a little to get there. You can't hear the ocean from there but there is a little traffic noise. They have everything you could want for the beach, including 3 very high quality snorkeling sets. We'd definitely consider staying here again though might splurge and stay closer to the ocean.

The condo is very comfortable. We loved having breakfast and dinner on the lanai. The amenities at Kiahuna are fabulous, especially the pool. Plus the beaches are wonderful. We will definitely return.

The property's location cannot be beat. Walking distance to the best of Poipu, and a short drive to other South Shore attractions. Professionally managed, so there's someone on site if you need anything. Really nothing to complain about, just a few things to be aware of. 1 - the cleaning fee seems to be a flat rate. I booked a short stay (3 nights), so it was a big percentage of the bill. Wouldn't be an issue for longer stays, but it feels like a bit of extortion for shorter trips. Still - I knew this going in and booked anyway so it was not a deal killer for me. 2- The kitchen is well equipped for utensils, plates, cups, bowls, and cookware, but there are no spices / oils. You need to purchase or bring your own if you want to cook anything beyond the basics. Gas grills are located throughout the property and they seemed popular with other guests. 3 - No AC, which is not a problem with the evening winds. However, every single door has slots in it, so there's really no door that can be completely closed. Even the door into the bathroom has slots. Just make sure you're comfortable with whoever you're sharing the unit with. People walking by the front door are able to see into the bedroom if you have the window blinds open. 4 - The bed is on the hard side. Probably fine for some, but I found it uncomfortable as I like a bit more cushion. There were mattress pads in the closet - I think they were for the pull out couch since they were a bit smaller than the bed. All in all, I would stay in this are again, and the unit is as advertised, clean, and spacious. It has a great supply of beach accoutrements (umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear, etc.) Having access to the Poipu Athletic Center right across the road was a big perk, and there's traffic snorkeling from the beach adjacent to the property. If you can overcome the considerations I outline above, I think you would really enjoy this property. Tip - bring some ice packs and a cooler with you if you can to take stuff down to the beach.

This was a great location but was missing some communication about the property. I was not aware that if there were any issues that we could call the property (not the owner on vrbo)to have them be resolved. Other than that it was a great location and had enough room for the 3 adults and 2 small children. I wouldn’t put much more in there. If you have a problem with the heat it does get pretty hot and humid but the ceiling fans and the floor fan did help. The beach chairs, umbrella and boogie board were great for our family. The beds are comfortable even the pull out couch bed was good. Had just the basics in the kitchen but it’s all that was needed by us.

It’s a cute unit with a feeling of privacy just a short walk to the beach. No AC but the breezes kept it comfortable. Everything we needed was there. It’s close to shops and restaurants. The only negative was a lack of a view. There were some beautiful trees but that was all we could see from the lanai. Things I wish I had known. The pay laundry is in another building. Also if you check in at night you need a code to get into the lockbox to get your keys. The security guard was very helpful getting us settled.

This was a semi-last minute trip that I put together, but I’ve wanted to visit Kauai my whole life. After searching through different accommodation locations for many, many hours, I finally landed on this one ☀️ it was perfect for myself and my boyfriend, who joined me later. Quiet, peaceful, clean, slept like babies, perfect location and a wonderful VRBO owner to communicate with. What’s more to ask?! I CANNOT wait to go back!!! So thank you for exactly what my mind, body and soul needed 💗 Hopefully one day, I’ll be able to buy a piece of paradise in Kauai myself 🏝 💗

We’ll equipped room! Beautiful property! No AC but the tradewinds keep the unit from getting too hot. Would definitely recommend.

Great location, and beautiful property. Very spacious and great privacy compare to the other condos around. We loved our stay.

The condo was clean and exactly as pictured. We appreciated having the beach chairs and boogie boards provided for our time at the beach. The location was perfect for hikes from Shipwreck beach and Waimea Canyon. The only suggestion I would make is to add salt and pepper to your adequately stocked kitchen.
