Kiahuna Plantation Reviews


We had to change our trip due to the Maui fires, and this unit was such a blessing! Close to the beach and easy access to the shops across the street. We really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen which made meals easy. Thank you for such an amazing place to spend time with my family!

The property is as advertised. Very close to the beach (2 min on foot), clean, nicely furnished. A/C works great. The Resort complex is very well kept and exceptionally quiet in the evenings. There are several very good restaurants nearby.

Loved everything about our stay at this Kiahuna Plantation unit! Only thing that would have been helpful was if there were basics for the kitchen. If you are planning to cook, plan to buy everything - including salt and pepper. Not the fault of the owner at all but a sanitary policy of the management company. Just a heads up. We will be back! Gorgeous all around!

This property is on the big lawn and a stones throw from the beach. The view is beautiful from this lovely condo. The kitchen is well stocked and the lanai is perfect for your morning coffee or great for dinner since the BBQ is close. Beautifully decorated.

Really nice apartment in a lovely park like setting. Quiet and well looked after grounds. The unit was really comfortable, super clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. The host was lovely with a welcoming note, starter pack of coffee/sugar/etc... The beach equipment was great to have on hand and the beach towel swap with the resort worked fine. Appreciated the info book on the area and the unit equipment. Air conditioning in the bedroom was great for sleeping, didn't need it during the day with the cross-breeze. We researched a lot of units in this area, and were really happy with choosing 151!

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay. The unit was perfectly situated allowing for a straight on view of the water. Everything was clean and well maintained, the bed was comfy and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. The A/C was welcome after days of exploring and the lanai is just the right place to have morning coffee. The large grassy area near the sand was a great place to hang and relax, and our friends that live on the island even came by to enjoy it with us. Kiahuna 107 is an easy walk to shopping, food, other resorts and a pretty spectacular coffee place right across the street (Little Fish is a must...don't be afraid of the line, it moves pretty fast). We highly recommend staying here...you won't be disappointed!

Fantastic location by the beach with a nice ocean view. Really enjoyed using the beach chairs, boogie board, and coolers. Kitchen supplies were a bit lacking, but I would not hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommend this condo.

I like the old-Hawaiian feel of this condo/bungalow. Many of the other condos are 'updated' and have lost their Hawaiian charm. A pleasant plus, it has been updated with air conditioning, not sure it was absolutely necessary in August, but made it easy to sleep at night. All the appliances were updated and in excellent working condition. There were absolutely no issues whatsoever. My adult son slept on the foldaway bed/couch, and it was plenty comfy for him.

From the ease of booking to seeing this unit in person, we knew we made a great choice. It was so comfortable, well-furnished and full of Aloha. There was so much to see and do nearby, but the grounds were so beautiful we could have stayed there the entire time too.

August 2023

This was our 12th stay at Kiahuna and our favorite unit! The corner with the shade kept the place cool while still getting the island breezes. It was well equipped with all the beach gear we needed and was very nicely updated. Thank you! We will be back.

Aloha!! Thank you for a wonderful stay in your Kiahuna Plantation Condo! This was our second time in this condo and will definitely be coming back!! This condo is well stocked, clean, close to the beach and overall great! Marie makes it so easy to book and makes check in easy. Her communication is super and she answers all questions promptly. She was very flexible and patient when we had to change our dates a couple times. The bed is comfy (not too hard and not too soft!). It was warm in Kauai when we were there but this condo really stays cool with the shutters open and the breeze that comes through. The outside closet had some boogie boards, Bocce Ball, chairs, and even an umbrella for us to use. I could go on and on but the bottom line is that we absolutely loved our stay in Kauai! Mahalo!!

I can’t say enough great things about Deena and this condo! From start to finish, she has been the most welcoming and helpful host, down to every detail of the property remodel and it’s amenities. It was spotless, so comfortable, and the view is one of the best in the entire complex. It was a luxury to stay here and we can’t wait to come back!!

The location is great - close to the ocean and close to the other units where other family members were staying. Air conditioning in the bedrooms appreciated - a little warm upstairs for the 2 teenagers sleeping up there. The dishwasher filter needed cleaning badly - we cleaned it a bit but this is obviously a property-wide problem because other family unit had the same problem.

We checked in late and had not eaten all day! Our travel was so chAllenging!! Michelle at the front desk offered to drive me to a local restaurant for takeout. Every restaurant was closing soon! Thank you Michelle! You helped change our day!!! Our place was lovely and our hosts were very attentive!!!

Kiahuna Plantation is the perfect spot for a Kauai vacay; the beach is beautiful with good snorkeling and plenty of space on the sand. The condo is well-equipped with everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen to all the beach essentials: chairs, umbrella, boogie boards. Beach towels are available at the Beach Hut on property. The bed is very comfy. We were concerned that the condo would be a little cramped based on the pictures, but it is much more spacious than the pictures show. The bedroom has a spacious closet and there’s plenty of storage space in the kitchen. The lanai is furnished with a table and 4 chairs in addition to two loungers. Beautiful view of the ocean! The only downside to this rental is no a/c. It gets very warm in the afternoon in July; there is a ceiling fan in the living area and bedroom. The bedroom is comfortable at night with the fan over the bed; the kitchen/living space is much warmer since the condo faces west. There is always a lovely breeze so that helps. A beautifully landscaped property has a huge lawn for games, BBQing, or just sunbathing. Kiahuna Plantation is a gem and serves as a good home-base for westward activities (Waimea Canyon, Hanapepe, etc) and northern activities (Hanalei, NaPali coast, Wailua, Kilauea, helicopter tours).

Excellent property in an excellent location. Our family of 4 spent 9 amazing days here, and hope to return soon. The view is top notch. Bring a snorkel and mask if you want to see tons of turtles, fish and coral. All right out your front door. Thanks Richard!

This property is well maintained and stocked well with most amenities, but you will need cooking items like seasonings and oil. So, we grilled instead. Quieter unit at the far edge of the property. Owners were good communicators and made it easy.

August 2023

We enjoyed this rental - it fit our needs perfectly in terms of location, safety, cleanliness, comfort, and utility (kitchen). The resort pool - at the Kauai Athletic Club - was nice for our child, who liked the waterslide. The only drawback was that it was closed after 7 pm....but we were so close to Poipu Beach - the natural wonder that is Poipu Beach more-than-100x-times made up for that very minor item.

The unit was everything that was advertised. We stayed with a family of four. My wife and I found a mattress to be exceptionally comfortable. And the kids (7 & 3) found the pull out mattress acceptable. We ended up putting it on the floor every day as that was more comfortable than the couch frame (I wouldn’t have wanted to sleep on the sofa bed as an adult). Bathroom is clean. Water pressure was strong. Washer and dryer. Both worked well. No A/C, but we didn’t “need” it. Though there were a few times we wished we had it. Overall, if you open the windows on both sides, you get a pretty good cross breeze. Are all appliances worked well in the kitchen. It was also well stocked with utensils, cutting boards, mixing bowls, etc. One of the cabinets had leftover salts, a smattering of seasonings, and a little bit of cooking oil. You probably don’t want to count on all those things being there, but it was a nice surprise for us. The gym across the street is wonderful. And the food at their poolside cafe is actually quite good (and reasonable, considering Hawaii prices. Now, the highlight of this unit, is the location! Opening the blinds and sliding glass door every morning was an absolute joy. The lanai exits onto the soft and perfectly manicured grass, and it is one of the shortest possible walks to the beach, of any of the units in Kiahuna plantation. If we ever have the opportunity and finances to return to Kauai we would look for this property first.

This condo was one of the nicest I’ve stayed in and I’ve been coming to Kiahuna for 35yrs. My only complaint would be the bed. It felt uneven and not comfortable. Other than that this condo was great. Nice flooring, counter tops, etc.

August 2023

The unit is okay. It has AC. Since it is on the top flloor without that it will be very warm. But the building is old and need some upgrade( broken light fixtures in the bathroom and flickering lights in the bed room) . This unit is the farthest from the beach.

This is our second stay at this beautiful, updated Kiahuna condo. The condo is located near restaurants, shopping and most importantly, the beach. The unit has a fully stocked kitchen and a closet full of beach items. The owner was great to work and was super responsive. Will definitely be staying here again, on our next trip to Kauai!!!

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.

Clean, bright, good WiFi, fabulous view across the lawn to the ocean. The resort itself is lovely. The owner of the condo responded immediately when I was booking to confirm, as well as they VRBO main site. She also emailed me that my condo was available earlier that day as they previous renters had left earlier, so I enjoyed a full afternoon instead of the 3:00 p.m. checkin. I would reserve this unit specifically again.

July 2023

My family and I had so much fun staying at the Kiahuna Plantation. It was the perfect location on the South Shore. We got to see Sea Turtles basking on the beach, a monk seal sunning itself and so much fish on Poipu beach. An added bonus, the Koala Plantation Days celebration was also happening during our stay, which added some neat free attractions. Thank you for your accommodations, we look forward to our return.

Great spot close to beaches, restaurants, and shops. Unit is right across from the laundry building which was very convenient. The pool across the street was included with our stay and very nice. The AC in the bedroom was clutch and very necessary to have if you’re used to having AC in warm climates, no way we could’ve slept without it. Unit was well stocked with bathroom and kitchen amenities, as well as beach amenities like beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards. Would stay here again!
Stephanie K.
July 2023

One of the best properties in Kiahuna plantation!! Updated, clean, and the view with the ocean from lanai is hard to beat. The owner is super nice and always checks on us to make sure everything is going smooth (that’s not the first time and not their first unit that belongs to them, that we stayed at!). Has an AC, which we personally didn’t use it but it’s a great option to have. We definitely recommend it and will definitely stay there again!

July 2023

We got to the beautiful location and opened the blinds at 330pm to find, no private yard as ALL the property photos show there to be a nice 20' private yard off the lanai that now has a railing to a eroded beach with no access and zero privacy.......oh and everyday surf school starts at 8am and goes until 5pm.....and they stage the boards and all the families on the eroded beach in front where the yard I rented was supposed to be.....We had screaming kids all day everyday in the chunks of remaining sod and I often had to ask the kids to get off the railing so we could have some space, but we had to leave everyday from 8am to 4pm just to have quiet. NOT A RELAXING CONDO LOCATION AND THE PICS ARE A LIE TO THE CURRENT BEACH EROSION that is not brough to your true attention until after booked, but the extent was not know and the pictures to all publications and web/VRBO sites is 100% FALSE ADVERTISING. I could have rented a house on the beach for the money I spend on the night rate of this condo. VERY DISAPPOINTING CONDO We also had no fans, no beach chairs so we bought two beach chairs, and fans to make the unit usable. In my 10 trips to the islands I have always had a condo that had everything........ BEAUTIFUL CONDO AND PROPERTY OVERALL BUT PISS POOR REPRESENTATION OF THE ACTUAL PROPERTY.

The view from the lanai is wonderful, the condo is spacious, the beds comfortable. The beach and pool are fabulous. The kids loved the waterslide. I rated it a 4 only because the screens on the sliding doors were really a pain. They were hard to close and the one downstairs kept falling out of the track when we tried to close it. Really frustrating. Needs some attention.

Beautiful condo! Amazing oceanview! We loved watching the sunrise and birds in the lanai w/ ocean breeze, very relaxing! This 2 bedroom condo is clean, comfortable and spacious for my family of 4. Kitchen is fully stocked. It also has washer and dryer. They have nice pool and hot tubs. We couldn’t swim on the beach because of big waves but there’s a lot of nice beaches w/in short driving distance. Also close to restaurants, shops and grocery. We liked going to coconut marketplace. This place is a nice central location to drive and enjoy both south and north side of Kauai. Thank you for our wonderful stay! :)

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Kiahuna Plantation resort ! The condo had everything we needed and was nicely decorated !

For a wonderful vacation we highly recommend this place !

We loved staying in this condo! We have stayed at Kiahuna Plantation three times and this unit has been the best for our family! I especially like the location being downstairs with easy access to the short walk to the beautiful beach! The unit had everything we needed, and we especially enjoyed the air conditioner! The patio is looking at the twin bridge, the beautiful landscapes, and is close to the laundry room. I highly recommend this place! This unit had umbrellas, boogie boards, a cooler, and beach chairs. The communication was great with Mark, and we had no problem with check-in. We will definitely stay at this condo again next summer!

The unit was decorated well and clean. We knew going into the trip that there is no air conditioning. Reviews said that it cooled down nicely in the evening, so we went ahead and booked it. Sleeping was quite difficult as it didn't cool down in the unit until 2 am or so. There were plenty of fans provided, but we are accustomed to sleeping in cooler temperatures. Expected more of a breeze to move through the unit. Quick access to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and pool/fitness club. We saw turtles every day on the beach nearby and a couple of Hawaiian Monk Seals! It was a wonderful first trip to beautiful Kauai!

July 2023

We were so happy and comfortable here. The condo had everything we needed for dad, mom and two teens. We were so grateful to have beach chairs and towels provided for us. What a game changer! We also utilized the outdoor grill which was in pristine condition. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and everything worked properly. Salt and pepper and foil were provided. The patios were prefect for the four of us to enjoy in the mornings and evenings. The condo was spacious and clean and A/C was a treat. Whoever stocked this unit was very thoughtful and thorough. It was close to the beach, restaurants, and short walk to coffee and shopping. The very slight downside was that the beds were just ok and pretty noisy at the smallest movement. Also, trying to communicate with property management about beach towels required several texts, a phone conversation and a visit to the athletic club and we received differing answers each time. Initially we were told we could just swap them out (but were denied). Then later were told we need to pay for housekeeping, then finally told to wash them ourselves. Again, we were so grateful to have the towels provided but slow and poor communication cost us a day on the beach. Still, this place exceeded our expectations. If you go, just plan on washing your beach towels and allow some extra drying time. Check-out was a breeze outside of being heartbroken to leave this beautiful place. We would highly recommend.

The condo exceeded our expectations. The listing pictures, especially of the view, didn’t do it justice. It was so nice to have an entire home instead of a hotel room. The grounds are wonderful and the location can’t be beat. Hope to make it back soon.

thank you Volkner and Gina you place was just what we needed. Having breakfast out on the patio each morning woth a view of the big tree was so peaceful. Even though the place does not have central Ac, we found it comfortable at night. We found a surf board and 2 boogie boards in the closet. Along with 2 beach chairs and 2 beach umbrellas and a raft and fins. Thanks for keeping it simple! chill time in Kauai for sure!
Jessica M.
July 2023

The unit was comfortable, mild walk to the beach, good view with a glimpse of the ocean, clean, well furnished, well stocked kitchen & w recreational gear (beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc.) and one of the few with AC! Some will say that the ocean breeze helps w cooling and may be enough for some, but the AC is an added bonus for someone like me who runs hot. The minor things I would note, but we’re not deal breakers for us are: • Flush lever on the toilet was very tight and needs maintenance, but flushable • The shower door is a little snug and could use some attention to smoothen it out, but opens/closes • The sofa comfort was ok and felt more like outdoor patio furniture. Personally I prefer a softer fabric and cushions, but that is subjective. The property owner was proactive checking on our stay and responsive to the couple minor inquiries we had for him. The grounds of Kiahuna Plantation are gorgeous, close to the beach, offer decent parking, and within walking distance to nearby shops and restaurants. We love this area and we have stayed in a different unit in the past; this one was great overall. Great value for this type of unit, amenities and location!

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.

July 2023

This specific unit (number 61 in building 11 of Kiahuna Plantation) was fantastic. First of all, the pictures are exactly what the unit looks like (no bait/switch). The air conditioning was GREAT. The actual A/C unit was at the top of the wall above the couch and between that, the ceiling fans, and 2 movable floor fans, keeping cool was no issue at all. The kitchen is fully stocked (albeit with some older small appliances like the toaster and blender). The fridge and stove/oven look new. There are about 16 steps (8 in each direction) up to the unit so for those with difficult mobility issues, be aware. The unit was clean, well stocked with games, puzzles, etc. It had two excellent TVs mounted with excellent access to normal and streaming content. The balcony is huge and looks just like the pictures. The grounds of Kiahuna Plantation are beautiful and well maintained and it is an easy 5 minute walk to Kiahuna beach. There is a huge yard area above the beach with lots of loungers and chairs. The Kiahuna Beach Athletic club (which is free when staying here) is right across the street and is a nice facility with a tropical like pool with plenty of umbrellas and chairs. Several nice restaurants are around and easily walkable. Poipu beach itself is about a 2 minute drive. Next time we come to Kauai, we will book this unit again in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful vacation stay at the resort, especially with the location of this particular unit in relation to the quick access to the beach. The grass area leading up to the beach in front of the unit and BBQ area are very well kept. We'll definitely be back!! Communication with Brooke and the staff on site was flawless.

1) Castle Resort is located between Mariott and Sheraton hotels. They were more expensive, so I thought they were better. Not true. The Castle Resort territory is way bigger, incredibly green, and not too crowded. Sweet and quiet most of the time! 2) The 107 unit was super clean. Probably the cleanest I have ever been. A/C is a perfect addition! 3) The cleaning fee is $255 + tax. Which totals $300. Just FYI. 4) Somebody in the comments mentioned noise from the road and roosters - I haven't heard anything like this in 5 days. But the tropical birds in the morning are very loud, ha-ha! Just bring your earplugs. 5) Mark helped to pick a flower shop. They delivered a birthday bouquet to the Front Desk on Friday, so the beautiful tropical flowers waited for us the next day in the room. Sad that we have to leave them there. Overall experience far exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

My family, which includes three young kids, really enjoyed our stay here. This unit is more private than others, as it's tucked away more in the interior of the Kiahuna Plantation property, and it's an end unit with vegetation on the side giving some privacy to the lanais. The views of the beautiful expanse of green lawn and palm trees with a peek of the ocean the end were beautiful. We all enjoyed easy access the lawn area and a quick walk to the beach. The unit was very cozy and homey. I loved the carpet on the stairs, as it made them feel safer for the kids. Kiahuna Beach, right out front, was wonderful, but at this time of year, had a bit too many waves for the smaller kids, so we took a short walk to the left to the calmer Poipu Beach. It was also fun to be able to walk to restaurants nearby for dinner one night. The proximity of the unit to the attractions on the south side were great, and we weren't too far from Lydgate Beach, a wonderful, calm and pool-like beach. Thanks to the owners for a great stay!

The condo was in a very convenient location. I was in town for a Poipu wedding, and it felt like everywhere I needed to be was 10m away at max. It was clean and comfortable. The snorkel gear, beach umbrella and chairs were appreciated. Plenty of communication so any question I had was already answered. Poipu Athletic club is right across the road, and it's a great option to take advantage of. Parking at the condo was right outside and safe. I agree with other guests - it is close to the road, and there are roosters, so ensure a quiet night by bringing some ear plugs. I did and had no problems sleeping soundly. The beach in front of the property is a 5-10m walk on paved pathways, and tended to be less crowded than Poipu beach. I was able to explore the entire south side of the island really easily from this location. Overall I would definitely stay here again!

We had a shaky start trying to find the office to get the key. Finally had to call for directions. Way too out of the way! We were not given a map of the Kiahuna Plantation and no one even wanted to talk to us, just pointed to the lock boxes and went back to what they were doing. We have stayed at the Kiahuna a number of times but never in that unit. We finally had to go to the registration building to find out which driveway to take and exactly where the building was. When we finally got to our unit neither of our keys worked! We had to call the management office and they contacted security to let us in and then the agent came z while later to give us new keys. Inside the unit was our welcome packet and the map of the resort. Sure would have been handy to have it earlier - like when we picked up our key!!! Once we were in the unit our vacation finally started and it was everything we could have hoped for. A lovely unit, kitchen with every cooking utensil one could ever need, great beach assessories, the sound of the surf, and the ocean right off the lanai. We loved our stay there!!!

It was our 20+ time at the Kiahuna Plantation in various units and it was great. The place has a perfect location on the property and it is super-efficiently stacked and organized. The end unit has impeccable airflow and the ocean view is magnificent with one minute walk to the ocean. Communication with Chuck is a delight and the property management is efficient. Will be back in the same unit in December!

I hope to return someday. Location was amazing, world class beach, huge grassy lawns, palm trees. Bed was comfy, everything very clean. Small but perfect for a couple alone or with two kids. My kids said, "This doesn't even seem real!"

This home was an ideal stay for my fiancé and me during our week long trip to Kauai. This end unit feels very private even with the all the windows open. Very close walk to access the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, and walking to the beach was a breeze. 10/10 Recommend.
