In Hawaii, there's no better place to be than on the beach, and with a condo in the lush Kiahuna Plantation development, you'll be right there! Located on the estate of Hawaii’s first sugar plantation, the resort features the famous Moir Gardens, a beautiful manor house restaurant, and an incredible location nestled between Poipu Beach and the Poipu Shopping Center.

One of the very few beachfront condos available on Kauai, Kiahuna Plantation 198 is the ideal home for a couple or family looking for a relaxing getaway, with oceanfront views from the private lanai and common space. Make a meal in the home’s open kitchen and enjoy it together in the dining area or on the lanai (each seats 4). Afterward, catch up on your favorite show on the living room’s flat-screen TV. The living room seats 6 and has a pull-out couch for the kids.

The home’s bedroom has a king-size bed, flat-screen TV, and eclectic tropical décor. Just across the hall is the home’s spacious and well-appointed bathroom with a spa-style shower. With all the comforts of home and one of the best locations in all of Kauai, once you arrive on Kiahuna Plantation 198, you’ll never want to leave!

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Great spot RIGHT ON the beach. We really enjoyed our stay, especially watching the sunsets while having drinks on the private patio

These guys are so amazing! We rented Kaihuna unit 198 from October 21st through October 26th and the condo was perfect. But that's not the best part: we had lost our home and everything in it on October 9th in the California wildfires, but had planned and paid for the trip to Kauai months before. It was a special trip for our 20th anniversary. We stayed on the north end for five days, then moved down to Poipu for the remaining five nights. While we were at the condo, the smoke alarms started beeping. Achhh! We called maintenance, and a wonderful guy came right away (I'm so sorry that his name escapes me at the moment). When we explained why we had the jumpies, he was so sweet and we talked for a while with him. Two days later, our last day, a staff member came to the condo with a card signed by everyone there, some adorable Hawaiian Christmas ornaments, and a Lowe's gift card for $200. We are so humbled and grateful for this act of human kindness. I'm tearing up as I write this. I'm sorry it took me this long to write the review. But I'm telling everyone to USE GVR for your next trip! Their kind, professional and know how to take care of their guests.

I could not locate my rental car info upon landing in Lihue, and was very relieved to receive a call back the the necessary information even thought the office was closed at the time. On another note, I responded to the email about initiating our membership to the Poipu Athletic Club several times and our family never was added to the membership list at the club. Luckily my parents were staying in a different unit and were able to bring us in.
The unit was very open, airy and inviting. My parents and brother who stayed in two different units were all blown away at how big and nice our unit felt compared to their units. The king bed was super comfortable, and the pillows were the best selection I've ever used anywhere besides at home. We could have used an additional blanket for the pull out bed on a couple of cold nights. We also appreciated how well stocked the unit was with things like soap, shampoo, dish soap, paper towels and toilet paper. Many condo rentals give only the bare minimum and you end up having to out and buy more in too high of quantities, not here though so thank you. My only suggestion for improvement would be to add a recycle container next to kitchen trash can (with list of accepted items) since there is a container for recycle in the main trash area outside.

Love the condo and area. Close walking distance to a beautiful beach, shopping center with restaurants, and tropical gardens. This side of the island is filled with tourist attractions and restaurants. Condo is spacious and provides stove, microwave, and dishwasher if you decide to eat in. Ample parking next to the condo along with community bbq grills. Flat screen tv's with cable and wireless internet make the stay perfect for keeping in touch with the rest of the world. Definitely recommend this unit as we have stayed here three times.

Linda and Mark were great! Linda found us the perfect unit, near the beach, with everything we needed and with only a couple of days notice. When we arrived in Lihue Mark helped us get our keys and was kind enough to text me back with a few questions I had about the room when we arrived at the unit. The whole experience was very easy and pleasant.
We loved Kiahuna! We stayed in two units, 108 and 198, and loved them both. 108 is right near the Athletic club and a really short walk to the restaurants across Poipu Rd. There were books and games in the room and beach chairs, even a couple of umbrellas. The lanai is big and gets plenty of sun all day long, plus is a great place to eat dinner outside and enjoy the sound of the ocean. Unit 198 is simply spectacular, right on the water and extremely convenient if you want to spend all day on the beach or looking at it. We loved how private the lanai felt even though it was just steps from the public beach and resort grounds. There isn't much more you can say about the view other than "wow!" MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Wow, what great comments. Glad you enjoyed the area and the place!!! Come again!

Had a wonderful stay and the accomadation was located on the beach and very nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable. However it needs maintenance and a better cleaning. The exterior of the refrig was very dirty as was the shower. My husband had to fix the shower knob, repair hinges on the cabinet etc. The toilet seat was broken and the front burner on the stove was not working. The Refrig barely kept things cool. The bedroom lights flickered all the time if you tried to dim them......just little things that need to be addressed. MANAGER RESPONSE Mahalo for letting us know about the maintenance. We will be sure to fix all of the items mentioned and do a preventative maintenance check. We are also in the process of getting a new refrigerator. Hope to see you again soon! UPDATE: All of the lanai furniture and umbrella have been replaced since this review was posted.

Thank you very much for working with us on such short notice.
We are long-time visitors to Kauai but this was our first stay at this complex. Kiahuna Plantation 198 is one of the very few rental apartments in Poipu that is truly beachfront. Most of the properties in Poipu that are oceanfront are situated along a rocky shoreline, not a beach. However, to approach the beach, you must walk past the next building to the opening between the hedge and the beach. So although there is not direct beach access from the lanai, the plus is that the hedge provides privacy from the beachgoers. The small lawn area outside the lanai provides a sense of space that is appreciated by those who do not prefer the cramped feel of most apartments. This section of beach by the way is good for swimming and body-boarding most of the year. The towel exchange booth is very close to the apartment, on the way to the beach. First-time visitors should note that there is no pool on the property itself, but renters are entitled to use the Poipu Athletic Club across the street. The apartment itself is very well appointed with clean lines and a contemporary Hawaii feel. The bathroom contains separate sections for the shower/toilet and the sink, handy when two people are sharing the bathroom. The kitchen is small but functional. The bed is large and extremely comfortable for folks who like a firm bed. Everything in the unit was ship-shape when we arrived. On our visit, we enjoyed the privacy and view so much that we tended to spend almost every morning on the lanai. By mid-day however, the sun shines directly onto the lanai and there is no awning or umbrella for protection, so it is time to get out and see the rest of Kauai!
