1BR Condo Vacation Rental in Koloa, Hawaii

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Mar 26, 2020

Tastefully Remodeled Condo. Short Walk to Poipu Beach, Pool, Shops, Restaurants!

Located in: Koloa
- INCLUDES FREE USE OF POOL, TENNIS COURTS, AND FITNESS CENTER AT THE POIPU ATHLETIC CENTER.

In Hawaiian “Kiahuna” means “Special Place”. The Kiahuna Plantation is indeed a special place that invokes memories of Old Hawaii during the early plantation days. The ONLY beachfront condominium resort in Poipu, its 35-acre grounds feature expansive landscaped lawns with mature palm, banyan and plumeria trees, lush tropical gardens with fragrant flowers, lily and koi ponds, orchid gardens, a picturesque lagoon, and low-density bungalow-style vacation condos.

A short walk through the beautiful tropical grounds, or the historic Moir Gardens directly below our condo, and you'll be right at Poipu beach! The warm, turquoise water and crescent-shaped beach is protected by a reef, and is consistently rated within the travel industry as one of the top beaches in the US! The white sands of Poipu Beach are great for lounging, and the blue crystal water is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and surfing.


OUR KIAHUNA CONDO AMENITIES (Unit #326 / Bldg 39)
Our condo has been extensively remodeled. Upgrades include new kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, two flat screens TVs, a DVD player, California King size mattress, modern furniture, and great lanai furniture. We also upgraded the bathroom to include a new vanity with granite top, and replaced the original tub with a walk-in shower with slate tile and glass doors. While we updated the unit to today’s standards, we did leave the original Old Hawaii plantation charm throughout with the original mahogany wood interior accents.


All the Kiahuna Plantation condos are breeze-cooled with no A/C. The furnished 240 square foot lanai looks directly over the famous Moir Gardens. There's also a convenient double BBQ island right next to our building, so cook your dinner and walk down to the beach or enjoy dinner on the lanai. Our condo offers great privacy, free WiFi, free parking, in-room safe, no resort fee, and is smoke-free.


KIAHUNA PLANTATION AMENITIES
The Kiahuna Plantation features free parking, a beach-side activity center where you can get complimentary chairs, boogie board rentals, and a convenient Laundromat. The Plantation Gardens Restaurant, which is down the path from our condo, offers cocktails and dinner with great views of the grounds.


OUR CONDO’S LOCATION IN THE COMPLEX
Our condo is located in Bldg. 39 on the second floor (9 easy steps up), and overlooks the historic Moir Gardens from the lanai. With the beautiful gardens behind our building rather than another building, the condo offers complete privacy. It is considered a 'Garden View Deluxe' unit, as it does not have a direct view of the ocean, but is closer to the beach than the 'Garden View' units and offers great views and privacy. Take one of the myriad of paths leading through the grounds, and you'll be on the Great Lawn or Poipu Beach in 3 - 5 minutes!

The Poipu Shopping Village is an easy stroll across Poipu Road. It features several restaurants including Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi, Puka Dog, and Keoki’s Paradise (our absolute favorite!) that features an open-air setting with a small lagoon, tiki torches and indoor waterfalls! You'll also find a small grocery store, Starbucks, and many shops for gifts, art, travel, and clothing.

------------------------------------------------
FAQs - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS CONDO?
Value! While we offer very competitive rates, our condo is far from a low-grade condo. It has been tastefully remodeled, and is walking distance to Poipu Beach, as well as the shops, restaurants and bars at the nearby Poipu Shopping Village. It also provides privacy and amazing views of the Moir Gardens.

DOES IT HAVE A VIEW OF THE OCEAN?
No. (Actually, there is a partial view of the ocean from the lanai, and it is close enough to hear the surf in the evening.) It has amazing views of the Moir Gardens directly below the lanai.

HOW FAR IS IT TO THE BEACH?
The beach is a pleasant 3 - 5 minute walk through the beautiful grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation. You'll enjoy exploring the various pathways to the beach!

DOES THE CONDO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING?
No. None of the Kiahuna Plantation condos offer air conditioning as the electrical grid in the buildings cannot support the power requirements for A/C. They are breeze cooled via the trade winds. There are also ceiling fans in each room and several free-standing fans.

DOES THE CONDO INCLUDE USE OF THE POOL & FITNESS CENTER?
Yes. All Kiahuna Plantation condos now include free membership for our guests at the Poipu Beach Athletic Center (PBAC) across the street. Reference www.PoipuClub.com for details about the athletic center.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR HOUSEKEEPING AT CHECK-IN?
The system I have in place allows the guests to select which housekeeping services they want a-la-carte. While all stays require the check-out cleaning fee, guests can select what optional housekeeping services are desired / appropriate based on the length of their stay. For a short 4-day stay, guests may elect to order no optional housekeeping services, whereas guests with longer stays may want to order a few different services to make their stay comfortable. While you will typically order these services at check-in when you are paying for the check-out cleaning fee, you can also order services at anytime by just contacting Castle Resorts. Note that a mid-stay full service cleaning is required for each 10-day stay.

WHAT CATEGORY CONDO IS THE CONDO?
There are 5 condo categories ranging from Ocean Front (closest to beach) to Garden View (farthest from beach). Ours is a "Garden View Deluxe" condo, which is not too far from the beach, offers great privacy as well as great views of the famous Moir Garden.

WHAT FLOOR IS THE CONDO ON?
Our condo is on the second floor of Building 39. However, since the first floor is below the parking lot level, there are only 9 steps to climb!

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN THE CONDO ACCOMMODATE?
Fire codes limit occupancy to a total of 4 persons, adults or children. However, for the comfort of my guests, I restrict it to a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children. The condo is ideally suited for a couple since there's a King size bed in the bedroom. However, the living room has a Queen size pullout sofa-sleeper that works out great for children.

DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR LONGER STAYS?
Yes. Please contact me with your vacation dates.

WILL YOU OFFER A DISCOUNT FOR LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS?
Yes. If we have open days that risk not getting booked, we will often offer discounted rates. As the check-in date nears and the risk of the condo remaining vacant increases I generally discount the rates proactively on VRBO , so a further reduction may not be possible.

CAN YOU HEAR ROAD NOISE FROM THE CONDO?
About 25% of the buildings that house the condos are located toward the back of the grounds along Poipu Road, including ours. With the bedroom shutters open you can hear some road noise. If you're a very light sleeper you may want to consider a condo closer to the beach; however, they are typically priced quite a bit higher. It hasn't generally been an issue as you can tell by reading our reviews.

WE HEAR THAT THESE CONDOS ARE OLD. HAS YOURS BEEN UPDATED?
Entering some of these condos is like going through a time warp to 1980, as many are still near original! Ours has been extensively remodeled, but still maintains the old Hawaiian plantation charm.

** IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SMALLER CONDO WHICH IS IDEAL FOR SHORT STAYS, CHECK OUT OUR "CONDOTELS" AT THE KAUAI BEACH RESORT NEAR LIHUE. VRBO Listings #620921 and #819958. These are essentially hotel rooms in a trendy 4-Star resort on a 3-mile stretch of beach. **
