“Great location, dirty unit”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation 4 years ago and found the condo run down and had decided we wouldn't stay again. However, after reading recent reviews, we decided to give it another try. Evidently, some units are updated, some are not. Other than a one time towel exchange, If you want housekeeping services during your stay, you will be required to pay extra. Since there are no washer/dryers in the units or cleaning supplies this means that your sheets are going be pretty sandy, your shower pretty gritty, etc., by the end of your stay. The lack of regular cleaning is taking a toll on the units, in my opinion. We did request a deep cleaning of our unit and it was provided, however, it was initially presented to us with stained bedding, old food on appliances and counters and a carpet that was not only stained, but DAMP and stained. Yuk. Also, unless you do not mind the continuous drone of a power plant or early morning "beep, beep, beep" of trucks backing up, avoid buildings 7-12. Building 18 is directly next to resort restaurant and across the street from a bar, so can be very noisy until late in the evening.

Otherwise, the beach is still fabulous, and the grounds are beautiful. I would recommend this rental with caution.

“Kiahuna Plantation #138 Disappointing”
Reviewed November 9, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We were very excited to try KP and be close to the beach and the shopping center this trip. We usually stay at Whalers Cove but decided to try something different. What a mistake. I have always had a good experience renting with Parrish, but this unit was not what I would call "deluxe." I also did not appreciate listening to the condo next door getting remodeled 9am-5pm our ENTIRE stay. We had to listen to nail guns, table saws and the tile cutter, a real ear splitter.

The carpet in the living dining room was FILTHY. The sofa had stains on it that I don't even want to think about what they were from, EWWWWW.

We were afraid to use the patio table on the lanai because the glass was cracking all around the edges and was sagging in the middle. The whole patio set up was gross and old. Such a shame because the view to the water is lovely and the grounds are really pretty.

The way this unit sits offered hardly any airflow, so we were pretty miserable in the evenings and found it hard to sleep (and the mattress was squishy and saggy). The fans do not do the job. Maybe it's better other months.

I had written my concerns about this unit on our check out survey. It's been a month since we left and I have never received a response, which is very disappointing. I expected more from Parrish.

This unit would be so much better if they cleaned the furniture and carpets periodically (or put in tile), and replaced all the patio furniture.

We won't be back to #138.
