Makanui Retreat: Combined Estate With Private Pool


Makanui Retreat is a rare find in the heart of Poipu. The property has two separate homes (Lei Ohana and Makanui Estate) both with their own guest house.

Slide open the wall of glass doors at Lei Ohana, kick back on the sofa, and let tropical breezes flow through the open living room while everyone catches up. The kids will love splashing around in the outdoor pool while the adults work on their tan. Grill up lunch on the gas grill and serve it picnic style or at the outdoor lanai table. At night, the living room is perfect for hosting family movie nights on the flat-screen cable Smart TV.

The remodeled, open-concept kitchen and dining area is equipped to handle any meal, featuring stainless steel appliances, a granite island, and a dining table to fit the group. Three spacious bedrooms, a den, and a sleeper sofa sleep up to 12 in two king-size beds, three queen-size beds, and queen-size futon. Three full bathrooms make sharing space easy, including an impressive en-suite master with a sunken tub and massive walk-in shower.

For those who prefer a bit more privacy, the detached guesthouse studio sleeps two in a queen-sized murphy bed and includes a full bath, kitchen, and laundry area. With its own wrap-around lanai, you can enjoy peaceful ocean views with your morning coffee before meeting up with the group.

Once you've settled in, relax with a book in the back or front private yards while the kids play out in the lush, tropical grass. With two living rooms, each with a flat-screen cable TV, the adults can keep up with their favorite shows at the main house while the kids watch a movie in the guest house, or bring everyone together for family game night. Take the stairs in the atrium to watch the ocean and the sunset. You will see whales in the wintertime from up there.

Right next door on the same property is Makanui Estate which has three beautiful bedrooms sleeping eight in two king-size beds, one queen-size bed and a sleeper sofa in the living room. The Makanui Bungalow guesthouse is a charming one-bedroom sanctuary next door with its own kitchen, BBQ, and two full baths. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, a queen bed with some privacy, a queen Murphy bed and a single day bed. Plus, you’ll enjoy exclusive ocean views from the second floor of the guest house.

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. Plus, you'll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.
