Enjoy this gorgeous condo with contemporary furnishings on the second floor with unbelievable views of the Pacific ocean. Watch sea turtles, playful dolphins, and giant humpback whales from your living room and Lanai. Colorful sunsets are spectacular and can be appreciated from your private lanai as well as indoors. Awesome private complex, experience the South Shore of Kauai at its best.

Poipu has the best Kauai beaches for swimming (voted the best beach in the world). Poipu Beach Park is kid-friendly for exploring, building sandcastles. You can walk there from Poipu Makai.

As Kauai goes, it is the oldest island of Hawaii, and it is quickly becoming one of the most exotic vacation spots in the world and recently earned several awards as a top tourist vacation destination. If you want PRIVACY, RELAXATION, and SUN, Poipu is the place. The awe-inspiring Waimea Canyon(called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific by Mark Twain) has excellent trails that tell a tale of the age and wisdom of the land. There are several kayaking excursion that take you down rivers and through green and blue waters in caves, grottos and waterfalls. The beaches are excellent, and small towns offer some unique shopping. Helicopter touring is another option that could help you experience the sights from the sky. Kauai is not as populated as the other islands, and the locals are really nice.

RESTAURANTS AND DINING:
Over 30 Poipu restaurants nearby at Poipu Shopping Village, Kuku'lula Shopping Center and Historic Old Koloa Town offering everything from Hawaiian favorites (ice cream, coffee, etc) to gourmet fine dining.

The patio and View are unparalleled. We saw turtles every day, and I saw a lot of whales spouts. The sunsets were magnificent. For the most part, it was very quiet. This condominium is nestled in a lovely neighborhood with some nice walking paths. We discovered within an hour to never leave food out. Is these little tiny ants just swarmed some dried fruit we had. After that, no sign of insects once we cleaned everything up and did not leave food out. There are a total 23 total steps to get from the lower level, parking garage into the unit. Just a heads up for anyone who has problem with stairs. The pool is very tiny, and was quite cold. We really didn’t intend on using it anyway but again, be aware. The garage takes a bit of maneuvering, but it’s great to have free parking! We enjoyed our trip and will definitely be back.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: To everyone looking for a sea view during their stay at Poipu, I would highly recommend this location. We were there at the end of December and all the wildlife you can see from the lanai is amazing. We saw spinner dolphins, humpback whales (breaching) and turtles. The condo has comfortable beds and is quiet and peaceful. Sunset views are great and the total experience was tremendous. It's close to the beach and all the amenities you want on the south shore. We will definitely come back here next time we travel to Kauai. Thanks for being part of a great experience.

The location is only a ten minute walk to Poipu beach and the Heritage trail. When finding the condo I fell in love with the view off the lanai and didn’t notice that there is no ac or heat. We regulated with the windows. A little warm but okay. So if you like it cool at night look elsewhere in January. We could see turtles and a few whales from the lanai too! Also they have an old fashioned key that has to be picked up at a different location.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful vacation but coming home to the condo after a day of exploring the island was a bit disappointing. The condo had lots of thoughtful amenities. It was clean but in disrepair. Window blinds are broken in lots of obvious places. The sliding door gets stuck. The oven was filthy with black, burned crust. It’s also a noisy condo compared to others we’ve stayed at with your company.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Nice unit, although somewhat dated. This vacation was a 1 year anniversary for me and my wife. I expected to sleep late and to do the things that you do on a 1 year anniversary. But this unit did not have a king bed, HVAC or blinds on the master bedroom windows! Making matter worse, the main sidewalk to the entire complex as well as the parking was right outside of of the windows that we had to leave open for the breeze. So every time someone parked late, went to their room talking, left early (4:30am and 5:00am) they woke us up. As for adult activities, we were relegated to a twin bed in the 2nd bedroom. Again, this is a nice, dated unit. But the above missing items negatively impacted our enjoyment. Oh yea, and the floor was filthy

The condo is small but very convenient and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a full meal or just make snacks. We also appreciate that there are 2 full baths. Parking is a little confusing at first but after a couple of days we had it down!! We love Kauai and loved our stay at Poipu Makai!!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo was nice, clean, and had all the amenities of home. Needed a little updating but overall it was nice. The beds were comfortable enough. It does have a washer and dryer which helped out tremendously. The views were amazing though...not beachfront but right on the ocean splashing against the lava rocks with a couple of sea turtles swimming In the area. We went to Poipu beach at about 10 pm and saw about 30+ sea turtles resting. It was an amazing sight. Loved that our condo was less than a 10 minute stroll to the beach. Parking was sometimes a little hairy with a large vehicle but doable. I would like to make a small suggestion: maybe adding a keypad on the door or a safety box to place the keys in so we don’t have to pick up or drop off? We enjoyed our time in our vacation rental.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo was clean and the view is even better than pictured. When you step out on the lanai, the view from east to west is amazing. We watched the turtles in the water and the sunsets every day. We arrived late at night & the condo unit is a bit hard to find in the dark. If I could give you directions, I would- but just know that you will have to go on many stairs to get your luggage in. The beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, and cooler there were so nice to be able to take to the beaches. There are many, many fans that you can move around where you want them & the cross breeze from the "guest" room is really good. Lots of puzzles there & binoculars. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. Coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and stovetop worked great. I recommend this condo even with it's quirky garage & stairs.

The ocean-front location is truly amazing, with a spectacular and unobstructed view. We loved being able to watch the sea turtles and sunsets from the lanai. The kitchen is nice and has plenty of tools, etc., for those who like to prepare their own meals. We would definitely stay here again! Finally, Kauai Vacation Rentals was wonderful to work with. We really appreciated the mini cooler, treats, and shopping bag they left for us. Mahalo!

We enjoyed the views from the lanai and we ate every meal there entranced by the view. Loved that there was a washer and dryer. There is no A/C which we were apprehensive about but really was not an issue at all as long as you leave the windows open! The management company was excellent. We are already planning a return trip.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Spacious, clean, well-maintained and tastefully appointed unit. Nicely equipped kitchen. The view could not be much better. We enjoyed watching the turtles feed every day and beautiful sunsets.The surf crashing dramatically against the rocks was better than more placid surf on a sandy beach. We did not walk to the nearby water's edge. The posted sign said,"DANGER ... Extremely dangerous...Off Limits". Not a problem. Poipu beach is a short drive or a few minutes walk. Plenty of beach gear. The umbrella was broken and there was a small plumbing leak, In both cases, the management company took care of the issue very quickly. There was loud remodeling being done in the adjacent unit and then the above unit. The company offered a very satisfactory compensation for the inconvenience. No A/C, but the plentiful screened windows allowed plenty of ventilation. The cable TV was a little hard to figure out; no surprise.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was one of our best vacations ever. First, Kauai Vacations Rentals was wonderful to work with. They were responsive to all of our questions and kept track of our special requests and they made checking out as easy as possible. We also appreciated the welcome cooler filled with goodies.Our stay started with the wonderful view of the water which continued to captivate us throughout the week. We just loved getting up and having our coffee on the lanai watching the turtles and being on the lookout for whales. It was easy to spot whales spouting and the provided binoculars brought the action even closer. Then, at the end of the day, we made sure to never miss a sunset which were truly spectacular. All from the comfort and convenience of the lanai!The unit was very well equipped and clean. I can’t think of any utensil that was not in the kitchen. There was even a coffee bean grinder which was a real welcome surprise. The towels were nice and more than sufficient in number for the four of us. We took note of reviews that mentioned the parking difficulty and can add that while we were very cautious when parking in the lower level given the numerous poles and tight spaces, we found that parking on the upper level was a breeze, even with a good size SUV. The unit was quite comfortable with lots of extra touches such as many guidebooks, beach chairs and beach umbrella. We found that the video accurately showed the rooms and the furniture. The only surprise was the lack of a full door to the toilet/shower in the main bedroom. We found that to be quirky but got used to it fairly quickly and would not hesitate to rent this unit again. In fact, given the location, which is our favorite so far of our four trips to Kauai, and all that it offered, it is our first choice for when we return to Kauai which, we hope, will be in the near future. We send our thanks to the owners and Kauai Vacations Rental for making this such a

We liked the view and sitting on the balcony watching for whales and turtles. The view from the balcony, living room and kitchen make it worth it. Appreciated all the towels. But it was NOISY. Every foot step in the units above came through loud and clear. Every voice of people talking on balconies was clear. We encountered young people literally skate boarding inside the condo above us, and while the management group offered a different condo for us on that first day, it was not on the ocean as this one was. The skateboarders checked out the next day, thankfully, but then a family with small children moved in, very noisy the whole time. Heard every wail, every foot step, every time the chairs were moved. The windows in the bedroom are hard to open (the bottom ones with the venetian blinds). Lights in the hall, spare bedroom and two lamps were burned out. The coffee pot barely worked. The carafe for keeping coffee warm was broken and terribly stained inside. The headboard of the master bed moves around and is not very comfortable. The overhead fans need cleaning, lots of dust gunk. These are minor, sure, but you know, for the price, things should be sparkling! And replace old, icky appliances. Toaster also did not work very well. Bedspreads kind of dated and old timey. Also no dish liquid, so it was hard to spot clean counters with the provided sponge and hand soap.

Kauai Rentals was easy and professional to work with. Condo was private, clean and comfy with amazing sunset views from the lanai. The kitchen was very well appointed as was the whole condo. Easy walk to the beach and several restaurants. Would definitely stay again. Perfect way to spend our 36th anniversary! Thanks for the cooler and treats!

This condo was even better in person than we anticipated. Very well equipped. Finding the actual unit was a bit of a puzzle and the check-in process caused frustration in that we entered the address of the unit and went directly there before realizing the key pick-up was 30 min. away which turned out to be exactly where we had previously been. Once we were in the unit, we loved the view and location. The Poipu area as a whole was short of workers at all area restaurants (July 2021) which meant no tables and limited or no take-out. We would highly recommend making dinner reservations 3+ months in advance.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
