About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is the only condo resort in Poipu on a sandy beach. Other condos are on a rocky shoreline or a long walk or drive to the beach. RECENTLY UPGRADED UNIT!! Brand new Koa wood flooring throughout, new tile and granite bathrooms, new furnishings in 2016. Spectacular ocean views from inside the living room and master bedroom. Steps to the sand. This is the only beachfront condo resort in Poipu on a sandy beach. Spacious 2-level condo with open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, remodeled kitchen and new furnishings. Everything you need is included in this condo - linens, bedding, fully equipped kitchen, beach chairs/towels, beach toys, and all resort amenities including 24 hour office, concierge, security, maintenance, housekeeping, pool, waterslide, jacuzzi, tennis courts, golf course, bbqs. The sunny south shore offers a perfect holiday all year long. The east shore is very windy and the north shore (Princeville/Hanalei) is the rainy side and there are no condo resorts directly on the sand like the Kiahuna. Spend your vacation on the sunny side of the island!

Ceiling and floor fans in every room - no air conditioning at this resort. The only condos that have air conditioning in Poipu are a long walk/drive to the beach, or start at $600/night. Tradewinds blow nicely thru the condo. 2-levels, must be able to climb stairs.

Best beach in Kauai. Enjoy the sunny south shore in this beautiful tropical resort with orchid gardens, lush greenery and large grassy areas. This is traditional Hawaiian plantation style at its best ... not your typical high rise hotel. This low-density 35 acre resort is unparalleled in its tropical beauty, with more open space and vast grassy areas than most properties ... you will not find another resort like this. You can spend your entire vacation here without getting into your car. Snorkeling, swimming, surfing right out front. Walk to restaurants, shopping, market, pool, tennis, golf, luaus and other activities. Relax on the beach or sit in the grassy area next to the sand. This resort provides free beach chairs and towels and rents all watersports equipment. Surf lessons also available here. Enjoy the newly upgraded pool, gym and sports courts - tennis rackets/balls provided. Two premiere golf courses in Poipu and more activities than you can do in a week or two!! If you're tired of the crowds in Waikiki or Maui, come and enjoy the paradise of the Garden Isle of Kauai !

This condo is in building 32. Twice as big as the 1-bed condos here with 1584 square feet/147 square meters. All 2-bedroom condos here are 2-story and have the same floorplan. Entry, bedrooms, bathrooms, lanai downstairs - living, dining, kitchen, lanai upstairs. We have a porta-crib (bring a crib sheet), booster seat and stair gates. We also have three 2-bedroom garden view condos here - check listings #254147, 717738 and 1036691.

About The Garlands

We both grew up at the beach in Southern California, and raised our family in San Diego. Our family loves surfing, the beach lifestyle and all tropical locations, so Hawaii is a second home for us!

The Garlands purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Garlands chose Poipu

Kauai is our favorite Hawaiian island with its lush tropical vegetation everywhere. We started bringing our kids to the Kiahuna Plantation when they were young. The Kiahuna is the perfect place for families, fun and relaxing without the crowds of Waikiki or Maui... so we kept going back. We finally decided to buy a condo so that we could enjoy more frequent trips to our favorite Hawaiian island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were delighted with how everything went with this condo rental. I am an avid reader of hotel room reviews, but renting a condo was new for us. We chose Poipu and the Kiahuna Plantation because we really liked the beach, village feel and laid-back atmosphere compared to Waikiki. The owners were super easy to deal with. Noise from the lot out front was not an issue and we stayed for 9 nights. I questioned the lack of glass windows for possible noise problems, but again there was no issue. You can easily close the shutters. Not once did any noise wake up our sleeping baby. The weather was great and we never needed AC. All kitchen appliances were in perfect order and we cooked 3 times per day. The owners kept in touch with us during our stay to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The condo overall was very clean and proximity to the beach was great! We preferred the location of this building #32 over other beachfront buildings since it felt more private and was surrounded by vegetation. We loved breakfasts on the patio and actually saw whales from the balcony and twice on the beach! It was a treat, especially to our parents who were visiting from Europe. The condo had LAN, Wi-Fi internet, satellite TV, CD and DVD player - more than you should need when on vacation. We liked the small shopping village across the road. There is an ABC Store there along with small retail shops and restaurants like Starbucks, Roys, Keokis & Puka Dogs. I would recommend a short 2 minute drive past the roundabout to a newer shopping village with more restaurants, health store and bigger selection of baked goods. I believe this property deserves a full 5-STARS for condos. You cannot be wrong by booking with these owners. Even though we should consider visiting Maui, I suspect that we will end up at Poipu again. And if this is the case, I am sure it will be at this condo.

Wonderful Ocean View Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we hoped for! With the perfect location, it was a nice quick walk to the beach. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves every night! The condo was well equipped with all the essentials and the owner, Kim, was very easy to work with. We highly recommend this condo unit and will be back in the future for sure!

Great loacation

  • 4 of 5

As stated great location. Close to the beach and shopping

The furniture in the living room and kitchen were not real comfortable...

Bed was good

Being 68 having to go down stairs from the living room to go to the bathroom was a bit of a pain. If you have trouble with stairs you might want to reconsider.

It was a good stay on the island and the accommodations are as listed.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry the stairs were a problem for you. All 2-bedroom units at this resort have the same floorpan and are 2-levels. It is mentioned at the beginning and end of my condo description. You are the first guest to tell me that the living room furniture was not comfortable. I am short, so the sofa/chairs are too big for me and everyone's preferences are different. But I will see what I can do the next time I am out there. I'm glad the beds were comfortable for you and hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation!! Thanks for taking the time to give me your comments. Kim

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the condo! It was amazing fall asleep every night to the sound of the ocean. The location is perfect! It was a short walk to Poipu Beach and Baby Beach. We had no problem walking to the beach with two toddlers, 74 year old and myself who was 33 weeks pregnant at the time.

The owner, Kim, was very kind and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this unit. I can’t wait to go back!

Simply Awesome accomodations and location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo. Tastefully decorated with immaculate house cleaning. Very light and sunny (or dark with a flip of the shade) and spacious for our family of four. Just loved waking up and going to sleep to the sound waves just across the street. We stayed for two weeks, and after checking out most of the other locations on the island, I am confident that Kiahuna is the nicest, and only resort for us. The units are spaced well apart with expanses of green lawn separating them. It was a treat to see such valuable real estate dedicated to landscaping with "over the top" gardens of orchids, innumerable flowering plants and fish ponds with giant koi. There was so much to do on this beautiful, tropical island, including a Father's Day helicopter tour followed by Plantation Gardens dinner. Kayak - zip line - water fall tour, drive to Anini Beach (beyond beautiful) and North Coast, Grand Canyon, waterfalls etc., etc. The icing on the cake was the owner who was super friendly and helpful and always immediately responsive. We will definitely return :)

Golf and Tennis - 4 tennis courts, 4 half basketball courts, pickleball and shuffleboard courts. Kiahuna Golf course across the street. Poipu Bay golf course (2 miles east) near the Hyatt and Puakea (in Lihue) are beautiful. After 4pm at Poipu Bay, you can play for $10 with a child (age 6-17) who plays free - you must have your own clubs and walk (amazing deal since green fees are $120-$185).

The Kukuiolono public course (6 miles west) is $7-9 and great for kids. The Wailua course is inexpensive and good. The Princeville and Kauai Lagoons courses are outstanding.
