Great location with an ocean view.
Have a closest with beach stuff for you to use.
Washer and dryer were great to have.
AC units in bedrooms made sleeping easier
This is a great property, nicely equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised with the welcome basket upon arrival. Nice touch.
It was great being able to see the whales and dolphins passing by from our lanai in the mornings while having coffee.
Beds were comfy but the pillows were a little hard for my liking but that's personal preference. It was nice to have AC units in both bedrooms as it got pretty hot upstairs in by evening.
Overall a great stay, would definitely consider staying here again.
Our stay in Poipu was awesome! We were greeted with a wonderful welcome basket. The condo was presented with quality in all aspects. We seen sea turtles and monk seals come right up on Poipu beach. We enjoyed lots colorful fish while snorkeling. We visited four islands while in Hawaii and this was our favorite. Thank you Evelyn for the wonderful stay!
Location and condo were great
This condo worked very well for our group of 2 couples.
It had all we needed to relax, cook meals and enjoy time at the beach.
The lanai had ocean views which allowed us to see some humpback whales from it and enjoy the waves breaking against the lava rocks by the property.
Many of the lanai railings in the complex including the one on this condo appeared to be identified as needing an inspection so we stayed back from it a bit while sitting on the lanai (as requested by the property managers). It was only a minor inconvenience for us as we were still able to sit outside, but hopefully gets resolved soon.
The condo is only a 15 minute walk to Poipu beach for swimming / snorkeling, and only 5 minute drive to other Poipu beaches and restaurants which was very convenient.
There is also a great hiking trail that starts beside the complex and follows the coast line for some great ocean views.
The property manager provided very good communication throughout the stay which was appreciated. We felt welcomed and certainly had any questions answered quickly.
absolutely love the makahuena...very QUIET and relaxing...such a wonderful place to stay with access to many things just around the corner
Updated, immaculate, comfortable unit offering outstanding views. Conveniently located to beaches, restaurants and shopping. Great complex. I highly recommend this property!
We had a great time staying here. Great place!
The condo was perfect. The location is superb, you cannot beat the views. We saw the most beautiful sunsets. We loved watching the whales. The area is quiet and well-maintained. The only frustration we had was the code was changed on the door and we were not notified. So, after being awake for 24 hours and a long day traveling on Christmas Day, we could not get the code to work. I started calling all of the numbers that I had and someone called and gave us the new code. We did panic a bit because of the holiday. I will double check on that in the future. We loved everything about the condo and would stay here again.
This lovely 2 level apartment is conveniently located near to Poipu. We are a family of 5 and it worked really well. It was wonderfully well appointed and very clean. The property managers are very efficient and respond quickly to any questions; we had the wrong lock box # and a miss-communication about needing the sofabed made up and they were super swift on both issues and very nice to talk with. I definitely recommend this vacation home.
This property is in a great location in Poipu. It was just as advertised--clean, well stocked, lots of supplies for the beach in the closet. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Throughly enjoyed our visit … wish we stayed longer .. so much more equipped than we expected .. highly recommended
Very nice condo on a well-maintained property. Great sunset views as well. The pool was clean, refreshing and never crowded. No elevators, so be prepared to haul luggage up some stairs. We managed easily and our ages range from 52-65. The condo can get fairly warm, but portable a/c units were provided for the bedrooms which was a nice touch. All in all, a wonderful place and would recommend it to anyone.
We had a great visit and would certainly book here again in the future. The home was clean and welcoming, with a beautiful ocean view. There are AC units in the upstairs rooms. And a fully stocked kitchen of essentials available for use.
This property is very close to Poipu Beach (could walk, but we typically loaded the rental car with our beach gear and made the short drive). Experience might vary throughout the year, but when we stayed (mid-September) this was a relatively quiet beach with super easy parking and amenities available. Also, if you're looking for sea turtles, you'll find them here. We routinely saw them while out snorkeling, and every night a massive group would come up on shore to sleep, and it was incredible. We also enjoyed going out on the rocks at the property itself each morning, to spot them out in the water, feeding and coming up for air. Caught a pod of dolphins one day as well. This location is the real deal for spotting wildlife.
Note there is some construction going on throughout the condo complex. We were nervous coming in, because we received notice that our lanai was undergoing emergency repairs a few weeks before we arrived. We would have liked a status update on this closer to our arrival, but luckily work was completed on time before we arrived. The pool area was a nice bonus, but the hot tub was closed for maintenance. We didn't personally have any issues with this, and our stay was very peaceful. But just worth mentioning for those who are skittish about this kind of thing.
We had seen earlier reviews about beach gear available with this unit, and there were indeed beach towels included (thank you!) And a washer/dryer in the unit if you wanted to freshen them up throughout the stay. We didn't find any beach chairs or snorkeling gear like someone else had mentioned. But there's a great little surf shop down the road where we rented equipment for a very reasonable price.
Overall we had an awesome time. Thanks!
Great property. Great host. Would definitely book again.
They had boggy boards, chairs and fins and snorkeling supplies so it saved us both time and money.
This place is absolutely incredible providing an excellent location, gorgeous view, and every creature comfort you could need. If we ever return to Kauai, we’d definitely stay here again.
Great stay at a great place. Very quiet even with the construction going on in the complex. I wish the pool opened before 9 but that’s early bird preference 😀
Spacious, comfortable accommodations in a waterfront setting. Beautiful view from the balcony. Lots of amenities provided: beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards. Bathrooms need renovation.
A south shore swell was bringing big waves which crashed onto the lava rocks of the point making it quite dramatic. Lovely accommodations.
Clean, great location. View of the ocean from your balcony. We had no issues.
Would definitely stay here again.
Immaculately clean. Very comfortable beds. Great location to see it all - ocean, pool, landscaping and resident birds. Beautifully furnished. Gift basket of island goodies was such a special touch.
We enjoyed our stay. A well stocked kitchen and the bedroom A/C was great. We especially enjoyed the lanai which had the morning sun and afternoon shade. Just be aware that there are no elevators to get to second floor condo.
We loved staying here! Such fabulous views of the ocean and the grounds are beautiful!
Close to the best beaches and restaurants. We will be back! Love this place.
The location of the property can’t be beat, in proximity of some great beaches and the unit overlooks the ocean, amazing place for a family of four to stay, highly recommend. The place is well stocked with kitchen materials and has a lot of fun beach items to use. Would love to stay again someday!
Very nice accommodations in a beautiful setting.
Clean and comfortable, with easy communication with agent. Small complex with two great cliff viewing areas and easy walk west to Brennecke’s/Poipu beaches and a cliff walk east to the Hyatt. Comfortable pullout sofa. Two bedroom a/c units will keep those rooms cool until afternoon temps cool down. Nice pool/spa area. New community BBQ area was under construction but should be nice.
The location was great and the place was clean and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked. Our only complaint was the downstairs got very warm due to no air conditioning. It took awhile to cool down the bedrooms with the portable A/C units.
