Kiahuna Plantation #96 (building 16)

*All fees are included in the VRBO price except for stays over 9 days. See the full description (view more) for details.

Partial Ocean View. Perfect for families and honeymooners. This condo is constructed in the classic tropical style with full size shutters throughout so that you can enjoy the fragrant tropical breeze. Being located on the top floor at the end of the terrace means that there is good privacy, because no one walks by the front door. However, we are not actually the end unit. There is a two level end unit next to us that has its entry on the lower floor. Being on the top also means that this condo has vaulted ceilings and combined with the open air balcony makes this property spacious.

To get to the beach, just walk 5 minutes across the lawn, barefoot if you like, and through the beautiful manicured gardens and you are there. The surfshack at the beach includes chairs for free, rents surfboards and snorkeling equipment, and offers surf lessons. The gardens are loaded with exotic plants including every color of plumeria, breadfruit, and 30 ft mature mango trees. The atmosphere here is laid back and it has never felt crowded. High quality barbecues are located throughout the property.

This condo sleeps 4 adults in two beds. One king size bed in the bedroom, and one queen size hide-a-bed sofa in the family room. There is room for 2 additional small children if you share a bed, or bring your own sleeping materials, such as a sleeping mat and sheets. Cribs and extra beds are also available for rent from Castle Resorts. The hide-a-bed mattress is brand new as of October 2021.

Watch the video to get an accurate idea of the size of the condo. We are family friendly. :) Kids sports equipment including masks, goggles, a snorkel, and a tennis raquet will be available for free use in the closet after August 31st. Please rinse when appropriate and return as you found it for the next guest.

The video walk through of the condo is in the photos.

A stay at Condo 96 includes a full membership to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, located a 10 minute walk across Poipu drive. The Athletic Club includes tennis, pickle ball, a pool with waterslide, jacuzzi, gym, and a full service restaurant with live entertainment. Kiahuna Golf Club is within easy walking distance (not included) and two other golf courses are very close.

Kaui is a hikers paradise, with almost perfect weather all year round. There are many trails to go visit and most do not require a permit. The Napali coast is the exception.

A small grocery store, restaurants, and shops are located within walking distance, so a car is not essential to enjoy the immediate surroundings. If you want to go see the sites and explore the entire island then a rental car is recommended. Taxi coverage on the island is fairly good while Uber and Lyft coverage are very lacking. I know of a reliable friendly taxi driver, so I can text you her number upon request. Public bus transit on Kauai is present and very affordable but is slow and requires lots of transfers. See more bus information below. There is a coin operated laundromat on the property.

The master bedroom and family room have ceiling fans. There is no air conditioning and it is generally not needed because of the mild climate and the open air construction of the building. In fact, even with all the shutters closed running AC in these units is highly inefficient, so not environmentally friendly. On the hottest nights in summer you will want to run the fans at night and in the coolest nights in winter you will need to use the blankets. This is one of those places where you want to live al fresco. Hawaii has legendarily comfortable weather and it is not hot like the Caribbean or Mexico. Check the internet for average highs and lows for reference.

A brand new smart TV has been installed in the condo which will allow you to stream your favorite service through the wifi. Just keep in mind to clear your account before leaving.

*Additonal Fees For Long stays: Guests staying 10 days or more must pay an additional $95.00 room refresh cleaning fee onsite for every 10 days to Castle Resorts. This fee is not included in the original booking price. The extra cleaning will be done midway through each 10 day block.
