My husband and I spent 4 nights in December 2013. We had a partial ocean view room that was neat and tidy and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The gardens surrounding the property are stunning and very well maintained. Good location close to beach and shops. One down side was that there was no pool, it closed... More

We rented a condo from VRBO direct from owner. As other people have noted, each condo is different, so you really have to do your homework when booking to make sure it's what you want. We liked our condo but found that a 1 bedroom unit with pullout couch was too cramped for our family of 4 (Kids age 1... More

My wife and I spent 2 weeks here through VRBO. 1 bedroom , first week 'partial ocean view" second week upgraded to 'oceanfront ' - definitely worth $50 a nite more. This is a huge property , but extremely well cared for- the grounds are gorgeous and plenty of rolling lawns. Because it's on a slope even buildings back from... More

DearmarkmDanville_Ca_, Thank you for your review. We have replaced the TV and are working with the owner to complete some needed upgrades. All of our units are individually owned - therefore unique in décor. If you are looking for each room to be the same, we do recommend the Sheraton.

Beyond misrepresented!! I have literally stayed in every hotel chain, as well as, independently owned condos etc. I am confused that this property would even be a Trip Advisor choice, but I am contacting them directly on this issue.

Wow! You clearly did not like our property! Kiahuna is not for everyone. I have many issues with your review, but frankly don't see any benefit in going through them in this response.

We rented two ocean-view condos for 4 adults and 4 children ages 1-9. Kiahuna Plantation's condos are privately owned so each one is maintained and decorated differently. Our condo, 205, was nicely remodeled and does have a washing machine and dryer. That was a real plus. Our daughter's condo, 203, was not so very nice -older furnishings and kitchen and... More

Thank you for your visit. Yes, especially in the winter, Kauai's beaches can be problematic for small children. I believe that only Poipu Beach Park and Lydgate Park offer "kiddie pools" that would meet your needs. I am pleased that you found Poipu Beach Park, and note that it is very close to our property.

First, I must note that our unit was ocean view and beach front, so our experience was truly amazing - our backyard was 3 feet from the beach.
