We get lots of positive feedback on this.

* Maximum Privacy for Peace and Quiet: This top-floor, corner condo is uniquely private and secluded so other resort guests can not disturb you by walking and talking by your windows to get to their condo. No one walking on your ceiling at night.

* One of the biggest complaints from guests at other condos at Kiahuna Resort is the noise that gets generated from many guests walking by their bedroom and bathroom windows at all hours of the day and night. Condo has door to separate you condo from walkway and other guests.

* You won't be bothered by this constant disruption in Condo # 245. Check out the photos and see the private door that can be closed to completely privatize your living area from others staying at the resort.

* Another "plus" for peace and quiet is being on the top floor and an end/corner unit. You won't be bothered by the noise from guests above you or to the west side.

* Keep in mind, there are no elevators at Kiahuna Resort. Condo #245 is on the top floor so there are several stairs.

The location was convenient to Poipu beaches and shopping. The grounds were amazingly beautiful. Plenty of parking near the condos. Very beautiful setting. As for the condo, it was ok but worn out. Be aware that there are 30 steps to get up to the top floor with no elevator. No problem with that, just be aware. The weather and humidity takes a toll on Hawaii properties. That is what you come to expect there. The walk to the beach is about 7 to 8 minutes, not the 3 minute walk as described in the description. There are some inaccuracies in the vrbo listing description. There is not a washer in the condo. But there is a guest laundry area near the checkin building. $3 per load, and it takes credit cards. There are plenty of washers and dryers. The bedroom was small but there was sufficient closet and drawer space. Nice eating areas inside and on the lanai. Overall, it was an acceptable condo, just a bit worn out. The privacy door was nice. And a closet full of beach items was very convenient. All in all, a nice place to stay.

Wonderful place to relax in Kauai. Close to the beach, shops, coffee, restaurants, and an excellent gym. I returned home refreshed, tan, more fit, and ENGAGED! (Can’t guarantee that last experience for everyone. 😉)

This was our first time in Kauai, and we have now absolutely fell in love with the island. This condo was perfect for our trip. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen if you are wanting to eat in, which we did for the majority of our meals. Loved that we could make our own smoothies. Lots of fans to keep the space cool. Well stocked activity closet, including beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and snorkel gear. Awesome to walk through the property and have a beach where you swim, surf, snorkel, body surf or just hang out right there waiting for you. We also took advantage of the car rental. At first I was unsure about it, but had seen a couple reviews mention it, so took the opportunity and it was awesome and very convenient in every way, from communications with owners to pick up and drop off.The property owners were lovely and easy to reach when needed. They take pride in their condo, and ensured that we had an incredible stay. We can’t wait to return!!

We loved the location of this condo. The access to the athletic club across the street was perfect for morning workouts. Quick and walkable distance to plenty of restaurants and shops and of course the beach! It all made for a perfect family vacation.

Alarik and Cynthia are attentive hosts. We had few reasons to connect, but each time we had a question we received prompt responses. And follow ups to make certain things were going well. It's a beautiful property and being on the top floor in an end unit with the ability to see the ocean was awesome. The area is walkable to two centers with restaurants and shops. One is a five minute walk and the other is a twenty minute walk, which is along the ocean ! We look forward to returning !

We love the Kiahuna plantation. Our stay at Cynthia and Alrick’s condo was wonderful. We had a nice distant peekaboo view of the ocean. The condo is very clean and nicely appointed. One of the nicest parts of our stay was getting to know Cynthia and Alrick. They are wonderful, sweet people and very willing to help you in anyway they can. You can’t go wrong to choose this condo.

We stayed in this condo and loved it. Communication with the owners was professional and friendly. The place was exactly as advertised. Everything worked well and it was clean and quiet. The walk to the beach is easy. We found that the best beach location was just to the east by the Marriott. We drove 3 minutes to the parking lot just east of the property. The beach chairs and umbrellas in the closet were very useful. We rented the car that is available with the condo and that worked out really well. No surprises or hidden fees. Would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others.

This is the first time we stayed in a VRBO in Hawaii. We enjoyed this experience very much compared to staying at a resort hotel. The property is well located in Poipu, and both the grounds and the unit were well maintained. Like most VRBO properties in Kauai, this one is not air conditioned. This was only an issue on our first night, after an unusually hot day and unusually light trade winds. The property does have two ceiling fans, two stand fans, and one table top fan. These kept the unit comfortable except on the hottest day of our stay. The unit is well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, plates and glassware. The beach closet near the front entry was well stocked with items that you would otherwise consider buying for a stay on Kauai. Cable and internet were good, and the TV in the living room was a smart TV, so we were able to view Netflix and Prime Video. Furniture was comfortable, and the large lanai was the perfect place to enjoy fresh local fruit from the nearby fruit stand. There are plenty of dining and shopping options nearby also, and the ability to use the pool and fitness club across the street was a nice amenity that we used almost daily. If you have an issue with stairs, you may want to opt for a ground floor unit, as this unit is a three story walk up.

Owners were extremely helpful and wanted to be sure we had access to the best experiences on the island. Well equipped condo with beach closet that held all items for enjoyment on the beach (chairs, umbrellas, fins, noodles etc) Condo was quite comfortable for my husband and I with lovely balcony that gives a partial ocean view. A great stay!

Fantastic accommodations and location for our family of four close to beaches, restaurants and shops. It is a corner unit with great views from the large, private deck. Would highly recommend. Thank you Alarik and Cynthia!

We stayed for a destination wedding and had an excellent time! Alarik and Cynthia were the best hosts we've ever had through a vacation rental. Their pre-trip coordination was very detailed, and they were the perfect amount of supportive during the stay (always available, but never a bother). The vehicle option was fantastic as well - much easier than other options on the island. I highly recommend their place and would stay again!

Great location, lovely short walk to beach, good food close by, comfortable and clean accommodations. Couldn't ask for more!

The property is as advertised. The unit is on the third floor which affords nice views but can be a bit of a challenge hauling luggage up three flights of stairs. The unit is close to the road so subject to more road noise than a unit closer to the ocean. We appreciated access to the beach equipment and enjoyed our stay very much. We found the accommodations, including the sports club across the street very nice. Thanks for sharing such a fun property.

We have been staying at plantation for years. Different buildings/rooms each time through VRBO. This room was just as nice as the others but the Host’s are on island and so helpful. If this is your first trip to area this room is perfect! Corner unit means a nice breeze and the owners description of view does not give justice to the ocean view. It’s distant but not peekaboo at all …. Simply perfect room, we slept so good on bed we came home & ordered the bed topper they have on mattress! Mahalo for such a welcoming bag of goodies you left for our arrival! We will be back :) 🌴🌺🌞

This property is lovely! The private owners of this condo are welcoming and responsive to our questions. The unit is on the end, so no one walks past. The fully stocked beach closet has everything you will need for a fun day at the beach or pool!

Amazing beach rental. The location is ideal. A very short walk (3m) to the beach through beautifully landscaped gardens. It is great having easy access to restaurants and shops. The location is ideal for use as a home base when making day trips around the island. I highly recommend for family and friends! The hosts also had wonderful suggestions throughout the stay!

This property was great for our honeymoon. The property was very clean and loaded with everything we needed. The location was very convenient to everything. The community was beautiful. Don't waste your money on fancy hotel. Stay here and explore the beautiful island of Kauai! The owner and property manager communication was great. We will definitely use this property again when we return. Mahola!

Condo is super convenient with short walk to beach through really lovely grounds. Large lanai with garden and some water view. Enjoyed beach right at condo property and walked west along beach to explore other beaches, watched a monk seal return to water! South shore location convenient to Waimea Canyon. Recommend.

Kiahuna Plantation is a great location with beautiful grounds to stroll through and explore. It also a short walk to the beach. The condo was on the top floor with a lovely view from the lanai, with a glimpse of the ocean. The top floor, end unit had a nice breeze that came through to keep the unit cool. The unit had a comfortable bed and a great shower. There was an outdoor closet on the porch with lots of recreational gear, including snorkels, flippers, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and pool items. The host was very responsive and easy to communicate with.
