About Mike and Kristin Mullen
Our family has over 40 years of wonderful vacation memories at Kiahuna #1 and now, for the first time ever (2015), we are offering it to the public. It has a unique and private location on the beach at the corner of Kiahuna Plantation Resort. It's views, and it's favorable orientation to ocean breezes makes it a one of a kind place to enjoy your stay to the fullest. Owners, Oscar and Lois Sandberg have permitted me, their daughter Kristin, to advertise this special property for your enjoyment. Feel free to call to inquire about short notice rentals - I may be able to offer a discount for short notice and calendar fill-in dates.
Mike and Kristin Mullen purchased this Bungalow in 1974
Why Mike and Kristin Mullen chose Poipu
Our family purchased Kiahuna Unit #1 in 1974 in the desirable Phase 1 of the Resort. At the time there were a number of beach front units available, but none had this premier location, so close to the water and yet so private and surrounded by greenery. It's single-story construction and vaulted ceilings create a spacious, airy feel to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Fall asleep each night to the rhythmic and relaxing white noise of ocean surf in natural stereo. We think you'll agree, there is no better place to be. You will not be trapped in a hotel box or surrounded by condo balconies peering down on you while staying at Kiahuna 1. Our daily rate includes everything except for the $194 check-out cleaning and the Hawaiian Accommodations/sales taxes unless you book Kiahuna 1 through the VRBO/HA websites as they have recently added a booking fee which will show up on your detailed price quote. Five day rentals include mid-stay towel and trash service while seven day rentals include one mid-week maid service with fresh linens and light house cleaning (in addition to towel/trash services). With the full kitchen, in unit laundry, free parking, regular maid service, endless clean beach towels, a very comfortable King sized bed surrounded by pleasant sounds and breezes, and a private lanai with side yard surrounded by tropical vegetation all right in front of one of the most desirable beaches in the world, this unit provides a lot of value. The Poipu Beach Athletic Club facilities and equipment are included at no extra charge to our guests, however, fitness classes, poolside food and drink, long-distance calls, and beach equipment rentals are available from third parties for an additional cost. We hope you would show your appreciation for our hardworking housekeeping staff by leaving them a tip at the end of your stay to brighten their day.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Kiahuna 1 is situated on one of the most aesthetically pleasing sections of one of the nicest and most versatile beaches in Hawaii. It's unusual to find a place to stay this close to such an amazing beach. There is a shallow shoal directly in front of the lanai that causes more beach sand to deposit in front of Kiahuna 1. The waves wash over the shoal creating a very relaxing 'white noise' that will lull you to sleep. 'Kiahuna' is Hawaiian for 'special place' and Kiahuna 1 has the location to insure your vacation will be as special as possible.

The Best Property on the South Shore
This was our fourth visit to Kauai so we know a thing or two about accommodations on the South Shore. In a word, this property is fantastic. Short of being in the Pacific itself, you cannot get a more ideal location that is closer to the surf. You can spend a lot of time doing a lot of great activities while on the island but the most sublime and memorable of all is sitting on the lanai and watching the brilliant stars give way to a beautiful sunset over the Pacific. A piece of heaven that has fallen to earth.
Unit 1 at Kiahunna is magical. As close to the ocean as you can get. Private. Perfect!
The rental process was very easy and straightforward. Everything was exactly as advertised.
Amazing property and great owner!
We loved this property as we celebrated a romantic anniversary vacation for two at the quiet end of the lovely Kiahuna property. We were comfortable in this very private setting. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries too! Thankful for discovering this wonderful property.
Perfect Ocean View
A great Kiahuna condo. You absolutely cannot beat the view being right on top of the beach and looking out to the surf. A nice quiet corner of Kiahuna and being able to hear the surf at all times makes for a relaxing stay. The in condo washer and dryer are an added bonus. Owners were great to work with and very thoughtful. Hope to return!
We had an amazing stay, as always.
