Make sure you can adapt to warm temperature because there is No Air conditionning
Roosters are everywhere and loud... Starting at 4 AM!!!! All day long to nightime
Noisy but nicely furnished and clean
While not on the beach, we were just a 4 minute easy walk--with included beach chairs and towel service. The "old Hawaii style air conditioning"--which means lots of screens with air flowing through--worked like a charm. The stereo with Sonos was an awesome touch. When we head back to Kauai, we'll stay here again!
Kiahuna Plantation is an affordable option for those who don't want the resort experience and prefer a vacation rental with a real kitchen. It was close to the market and the beach. The condos are beachfront property. The Unit we stayed in was located farthest off the beach (3min walk)
