Great location and property.

The lodging is roughly as expected given the provided pictures and amenities listed in Vrbo. The location was a big plus; you are right next to Poipu's ocean cliffs, the southernmost point on the island, so you have unobstructed views of sunrise / sunset via a short 3-5 min walk. However, our trip experience was hampered by an unresponsive host experience. We found a large cockroach in the lodging upon return from our first dinner in Kauai. The hosts told us to expect critters given the tropics, although I've been to Hawaii twice before and this was the first time I've had a cockroach problem. We immediately communicated to the host that we'd like to be moved to another, cockroach-free unit, if possible. We communicated via the Vrbo app, which we got no response despite multiple follow up messages over the app, and texted another member of the host team that came to meet us when we were moving into unit. Again, no response from that individual. We had to find the local Pipou Reality (host company) office, located a town over, and knocked on their door during business hours, but still had no response. There was a business card hanging in the window of the office which we called the number on, and then finally, after calling the number 3-4 times, someone picked up and heard our case (they did nothing, but hey at least we got a response!). All this to say this: stay at your own risk. The lodging is fine, but I wouldn't trust the management team to solve any problems that arise

I came here for my Honeymoon with my wife. Stayed two full weeks and could have stayed longer. This property was beautiful, had everything we could have wanted and more. Incredible location, view, and pool area also. Anne and Benjamin were super friendly and made sure we were accommodated and gave us good ideas of what to enjoy around the island as well. We will definitely be back.

Very well-equipped, roomy and clean comfortable condo. Property was even stocked with all sorts of gear like beach chairs, umbrellas, scuba gear for enjoying the ocean/beaches. sits on a spectacular location on cliffs over-looking the ocean with dramatic views. We really enjoyed the sunsets and meeting lots of other residents/occupants gathering to watch the sunset. Property sits very close to both Shipwreck Beach and Poipu Beach. Kauai is definitely one of, if not the, most beautiful places we have ever travelled to. We hope to return soon and would absolutely stay here again.

Wonderful property location.... Great hikes around the rocks and views were gorgeous and beaches within walking distance. Loved seeing the turtles in the little coves. The unit was one of the best stocked places we've stayed in with any beach gear you could want. The kitchen was equally well stocked with all appliances necessary and plenty of dishes for 4-6 people. We had everything we needed and loved our stay in this roomy unit. We also have to mention that the master bedroom had a very comfortable king sized bed!

We loved the location! Easy to get to the best beaches ..minutes away. Great hiking trail out the door. Central location for island access.

The property was very large and roomy. There is no air conditioning in the unit. Nights were hot so it was hard to sleep. We had to leave the sliding door open. I didn’t feel safe knowing the door was open. The unit provided extras such as beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear.

Large, well appointed condo. Host very responsive for any minor issue that arise. We stayed early August and as others have stated there is no AC. This was not big issue most evenings due to the fans (host did offer extra fans) and trade winds. However one evening without the winds it was a little uncomfortable. Not so much in the master but in the other bedroom. Although it certainly appeared safe enough to leave the sliding doors wide open we choose to close them most of the way and used the sticks provided and added to them to leave room for air flow but not so much someone could get in. One suggestion, to help others that are as skeptical as us, would be to provide slightly longer sticks to accomplish what we accomplished without improvising. Overall a very nice place and I would highly recommend staying here.

The value and location of this property was excellent for our trip! The communication between the owner and manager was on point and thorough. We had no issues and had an amazing time while visiting Kauai. Do not hesitate renting this unit! It’s a short and beautiful walk to the beach one direction or towards the Grand Hyatt the other way on the coastal trail. The unit is spacious, clean and had all of the amenities we needed. Mahalo and aloha!!

Beautiful area and great place from which to see the South or travel West. Was a short maybe 20-30 min from the airport. My partner and I only stayed here for 2 days before heading up North for a longer stay, so did not have much time to take advantage of all the included amenities. Very well stocked and huge kitchen, complimentary cookies. Walk-in closet with a dresser for your things, plus looked to include some beach gear. Included parking pass and pool key. Comfortable bed. Laundry. Two showers. Only things to maybe note if you are planning on coming here are that it does not have AC, just fans (which worked fine for us), and the cleaning lady may come a few minutes before check-out so make sure you're pretty ready. And a general note about the island- when people say it "has no nightlife" they really mean "stores close before 5 and restaurants and bars by 7 or 9"

We enjoyed the condo and pool but were unaware we would not be able to see the ocean from the patio- felt more like a basement apartment than a first floor apartment. Found the location perfect for accessing the various beaches and trails and an easy drive to Waimea canyon.

This is a beautiful location there are so many nice restaurants, ocean views, trails and an abundance of tours. The ocean views are amazing almost wished we weren’t as busy with tours, we missed out on the lovely walks right out our front door of our condo! Don’t miss out do it daily it’s amazing! Sunrise to sunset it’s just breathtaking here! The kitchen is absolutely the best stocked rental I’ve ever been in. The appliances are top notch.

We had a wonderful time and walking access to the beach. Perfect location for exploring the East, North, and West coast as well. Was a perfect place for myself and teen daughters.

We spent our first five nights here on our first trip to Kauai and were not disappointed. The condominium complex is on the shore with walking trails along the coastline and close to everything the South Shore has to offer.

Very nice condo. It was easy access to the walking trail. We enjoyed going out for walks every day. Easy access to beaches and other activities. Property owners were very accommodating.

This property was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. We are active people and really enjoyed our proximity to the trails for hiking and running. We were able to easily access Poipu, Brennecke’s and Shipwrecks beaches by foot. The location was absolutely ideal, located on a beautiful property right on the coast. The property manager was awesome to work with and was super accommodating with our crazy travel times. We would for sure stay here again and would recommend this property to friends and family. We loved our time at Makahuena!

Close to everything we want to do on the South Island. Just need to watch that front door when the wind is blowing! Thanks for a great first Hawaiian trip!

The condo was nice, well appointed, and in a great location within walking distance of Brenneke's and Poipu beach. The pool and hot tub in the complex were great, as well. It was not clear to me, however, that this condo was a ground floor/basement condo. No view of the beach, kinda dark. It was ok since we didn't go to Hawaii to stay in the condo but I do wish I had noticed that when I selected the property.

The property was well maintained and clean. The screen door on the lanai door was off the hinges when we arrived but it did not impede our stay at all. The beach items(umbrella, chairs, etc) were extremely helpful.

Really enjoyed staying in this condo. Any concerns we had were addressed promptly by the property manager. The location provided trails along the cliffs where we watched sea turtles and sunsets. The kitchen,bedrooms and patio were nicely done. The pool and jacuzzi were clean and quiet.

We had a great stay in Poipu. The location was very convenient to local beaches, restaurants, and shops. The space was perfect for two couples. The kitchen was very well furnished making it very easy to prepare meals. The property is located next to a path that ran along the beach which was perfect for strolling.

Thank you Anne and Ben! Your personal contacts were so helpful and appreciated. The unit was great for us. Bed was very comfortable, kitchen well stocked, loved having Washer/dryer. Location was fabulous, sunsets, hiking, pool, short walk to poipu. Little things: Standing fan didn't work, screen doors didn't stay on track and TV remote was iffy. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! BIll and Nancy

A wonderful time as a family and celebrating our twins graduation. Great place near the beach for walks, sunset, beach and snorkeling The pool and the jacuzzi was wonderful too. Thank you.

This property is in a fantastic location. We would give it a solid 4/5. The property management team is 5/5! They were easy to get ahold of and very speedy with response. They had said in an email we would have use of boogie boards but none were there when we got there so we enquired. Right away we got use of two brand new ones. The place is well equipped. We did miss having A/C tho and a view from the lanai. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting
