Why Rochelle Barr chose Poipu

Kiahuna Plantation offers all the amenities that our family needs. We love the fact there is something here for all ages. The sound and view of the ocean were the main attractions for buying this condo. We are so excited that we have found a place to visit that we can truly call our 2nd home!

Great location at Kiahuna, steps to the beach, clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Rochelle's condo. Having stayed at Kiahuna many times this was one of our favorite units because of the location with the close proximity to the beach and Plantation Garden Restaurant. We are an active family of four with two teens and out and about during the day so the additional noise from the parking lot was not an issue for us but could be if you are expecting a quiet location as there is music and people coming and going through out the day. We loved hearing the Sheraton Hula show from our deck and walking to Plantation Garden restaurant at anytime. I have to say Plantation Garden Restaurant was our favorite of all the restaurants we visited including Tidepools at the Hyatt, Eating House 184, Merrimans and Brennekes so to be steps away was wonderful. The unit was well stoked with family games and 3 new tvs, also appreciated were the stand up fans in both the bedrooms and living areas and the the laundry facilities in the downstairs closet. The unit was clean and spacious since it has more windows being an end unit with high ceilings in the upstairs, so nice to have the extra breeze. The kitchen counter tops were newer and the furniture was comfortable and in good condition. The best part of the unit was by far the view, we loved being able to check out the waves at any moment from our deck and trips back and forth to the beach was super easy. Definitely will rent the unit again. Thanks Rochelle.

Barely adequate, not worth the $$

  • 2 of 5

I wish I could say this place was great, but honesty prevents this.

First the good:

Great location, easy access to the beach, and Kiahuna is a wonderful property, with access to a very nice pool and workout area.

Now the bad, and it's fairly detailed:

The kitchen was not much of a kitchen, minimal pots and pans and cutlery, an older stove with a broken drawer, cheap appliances (toaster, blender, etc) The refrigerator is small and requires you bend over to access it. The microwave smelled like microwave popcorn, and we never were able to rid it of that odor. The fan above the stove was dirty, and permanently caked with cooking grease

The flooring is some sort of cheap linoleum not wood or even Pergo. The couch / pull out bed makes a funny noise when you sit down (like a whoopee cushion). If you want to watch any decent TV at night, you better have Netflix because the cable package is bare bones with no movie channels.

The downstairs master bedroom is lacking a box spring, the mattress sits on a piece of plywood.

The shared bathroom is in bad shape, there's rot along the shower molding, and the towel bar fell off when we hung a towel on it.

Oh and about the rip-off cleaning fee (over $300) they don't even clean the bathrooms! Basically they come in, sweep, and make the beds. In and out in about 15 to 20 minutes, totally not worth it.

Also it's worth noting that without air-conditioning, you'll need to endure the constant drone of fans to stay comfortable. It was simply too hot, and was never really comfortable for my wife during the entire 9 days we were there.

That's about, I don't like having to be so critical, but if you are charging top dollar for a rental, it should be a better value.

If the owner would invest some time and money, it would be, because it's a nice location, but even a nice location does not make up for the lack of substance in this unit.

Owner's Response: Marcus, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I wish that you would have contacted me during your stay regarding some of the issues you had with our condo so that we could have addressed them then. I do however want to address some of them in this response to your review. I am actually going to Kauai next week and will be doing some shopping of kitchen items. I had already planned adding a Keurig coffee maker and a Ninja blender. I will now add a better toaster oven to my list. The stove is fairly new and was purchased in 2017. I will also purchase more cookware and cutlery as sometime these things “walk away” to other condos where friends/family are staying (housekeeping only replaces the standard set). I enjoy cooking so I usually have pretty much everything that someone would need. I will also look at the hall bath and couch as I was unaware that there were any issues since my last stay. The smell from the microwave and having a greasy stove fan is not acceptable and I have already taken these issues up with the manager of housekeeping. The flooring was picked for comfort and durability. I even added a sponge like material underneath to make it more comfortable to walk on. The master bed is designed to have only a mattress (box springs do not work with this particular style of bed). The resort is working on the cable situation to get more channels. I put in Smart TV’s as well as Blue Ray DVD players so that guests could have other options of using Netflix, etc. or one of the many family style movies that I have provided. I am glad that you enjoyed the Kiahuna Plantation. I hope that you also enjoyed the beautiful island of Kauai during your stay. Rochelle

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

As our boys grew up in California, we stayed in various condos at the Kiahuna Plantation. It is super safe and family friendly. This July, our youngest son brought his family from Cincinnati to introduce his kids to our favorite family vacation destination. All 3 of the grandkids fell in love with Poipu Beach Area. This particular condo turned out to be perfect for them. The location is amazing! It is an end unit, nicely decorated and equipped, with a great view, and right across the street from the beach! The owner was so gracious to allow a late check out so the kids could enjoy their last day before leaving to the airport. I must also add that the price was very reasonable compared to other properties.

We had a great time staying at this unit beautiful views of the ocean from upstairs deck.

  • 5 of 5

The resort is in a great location and we enjoyed all the amenities, the athletic club and sitting by the beach on the grassy area and watching all the surfers. My teenage children did the surf lessons and were able to get up on the boards by the end of the lesson. We also enjoyed the shops at Poipu and it was conviently located across the street. The front desk was also helpful in setting up a Napali Coast Tour as well. We would definitely rent again. The condo was spacious and had everything we needed. I checked out other resorts in area and was glad we rented here. Most don’t have the sandy beach like the Kiahuana plantation. We really wanted the beach right there and this unit was perfect. We also enjoyed watching the luau show at Sheraton from our deck. I will miss my morning coffee sitting on the deck watching the ocean. We will be back.

Awesome View!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit at Kiahuna Plantation and we have stayed in many over the past twenty years! Having coffee with a view of the ocean was the best part! We also loved the view of the garden and Plantation Restaurant from the front, we saw two weddings on the lawn while we were there. The condo owner was gracious enough to pay for a bed topper for the pull out bed and my father in law was very comfortable all week because of it! The Kiahuna Plantation is a magical place for your family to vacation and this unit won't disappoint!

Additionally, there will be a cleaning charge that will be due upon check-out and paid directly to the resort. This is not included in the rent. Here is a handy chart of the housekeeping required by the resort to help you estimate the cost:

These housekeeping estimates are based on the resort's 2018 housekeeping rates and I cannot guarantee these exact amounts for 2018. They do tend to raise their rates a few dollars each January.
