We loved the location of this condo. Nice ocean view from the deck. Clean and well stocked. The beach accessories included a wagon to haul everything back and forth to the beach plus the chairs, plenty of towels, boogie board, and umbrella. Such a quick drive to poipu beach. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for a family get away. The condo was clean and conveniently located beaches, shopping, and restaurants in Poipu. The condo was equipped with boogie boards, and beach chairs which made relaxing at the beach effortless. We enjoyed getting up early and watching the sunrise on our walk to the rocks. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful place to stay.

We had a wonderful time at this property! It was clean, fully stocked with chairs and towels to take to the beach, and the kitchen was awesome! We loved the location, it was close to the beach and convenient.

Upon arrival inside the property looked nice. The theme, colors fit perfectly to the area and our vacation. There were some minor property repairs needed, like the entrance screen door and patio rail, but it looked like they were pending repairs. The pillows and bed sheets were stained and did not have a fresh clean smell, not sure when was the last wash they received specially the pillows/pillow covers. They had a lot of equipment and toys available as there was no note not to touch and were in open closet space. We did not get to use them but can see how a family would really enjoy the room and amenities available inside the rental, pool or nearby beaches. They have video and music streaming, the tv and sound are great to enjoy an evening. The fridge and kitchen are great, we did not get to use it, but this is a great stay for a weeklong trip as it has everything, and most stores are within 30 minute drive.

The unit itself was very spacious and has everything we needed. It was very close to the ocean, although this part was not one where anyone could swim due to the rocks and force of the waves, but it was an absolutely breathtaking view. Our only recommendation is that the AC vents were a bit dusty and should be cleaned more thoroughly. But all in all, it is a great unit and very close to Poipu beach, where we saw many sea turtles. I would definitely consider satiating here again.

Loved the location within easy walk to Poipu Beach! Property had a nice large kitchen, and enough space for our family of 5. Hot tub was nice and kids enjoyed the pool.

The condo was exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The owner responded to emails and requests quickly. Although the condo had only partial ocean view; it was the next building from the ocean. It was walkable to Popui beach. We would stay there again.

Perfect spot for our family, my husband and our 3 children (9, 10, & 12) and myself. Very clean, and easy check in. Beautiful location! We enjoyed time on the porch, along with sunsets in the back of the property. Easy to get to everything. We really appreciated all the beach gear we did not have to rent! Thank you for making our stay so special!

We stayed here with our infant and were very pleased with our stay! Ample room, very clean, beach towels and chairs available, and just a short walk from the beach. Great communication with the owners before and during our stay. We would come again!

Location was wonderful, close enough to walk to our meeting at the Grand Hyatt. The condo is well equipped with everything we needed during our stay.

My family and I were blessed to be able to stay at this condo for a few weeks. Simply put, this place is amazing!! The condo has a very functional layout with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We had up to 6 people staying here and it never felt crowded at all. All the furniture was newer and comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, and the lanai was large with a phenomenal view. The condo location is great because you can walk a few steps to overlook the ocean, including a blow hole. A 5-10 minute walk puts you right onto Poipu beach, which was so fun to see the turtles coming on shore around 7 pm. Also, the property managers are amazing at offering any assistance once you arrive. We will definitely be looking to rent this unit again. Thank you so much to the owners and property managers!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Makahuena. Poipu beach was walkable, although we usually drove since we had kids and a lot of gear. Plenty of parking. The unit was perfect for the 5 of us. The pool was great for the kids. I was sad to find out the jacuzzi was out of commission as that was part of my search criteria. I was told the heater was broken and it will likely not get fixed for months. The views of sunrise were incredible. I saw dolphins and sea turtles from the property. The kitchen was well stocked. Overall, great experience and would love to come back!

The location is amazing! The property is in an older building but you can tell a lot of thought and effort has gone into making the unit very welcoming and perfect for guests. We had everything we needed. It was perfect for our family of 5 and we'd gladly return.

This is our 4th time in Kauai, this was our favorite place we have stayed. Close to Shipwreck and Poipu Beach. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and pool. Each night we saw perfect sunsets. Beds in condo were all comfortable (my family is picky when it comes to sleeping). Condo is nicely remolded and well stocked. We can't wait to come back!

We have been going to Hawaii now for 20 years and this was our 6th time to Kauai. We agree this was the nicest accommodation we’ve ever stayed in. The condo is represented well in the photos, clean, appreciated the lanai and that you can see the ocean from the place. Plenty of space, in fact, much larger than my husband and I needed. Quality of furnishings was wonderful compared to many we’ve stayed in, appreciated that kitchen was well equipped, although we only made coffee and cut up some fruit, we could have cooked or bar-b-q easily. I appreciated the nicer coffee maker. I chose a place with w/d but never used them. Appreciated how well stocked it was with nice beach chairs, umbrellas, plenty of towels, etc. Very close to Point on Poipu and close to both Poipu/Brenneke Beach or Point/Shipwreck Beach and green belt. Sunrises and Sunsets were great. The people who live there were incredibly friendly and chatty when we watched sunsets there. Saw tons of whales from lanai or on lawn and also many turtles from rocks on property. I appreciated how communicative the hosts were and how responsive they were with any issues and all the suggestions they sent ahead of time. Loved that it was away from the road so you did not have any road noise. The only con, which is no fault of owners was that the individuals above us were incredibly loud and were up every single day of our trip no later than 4 a.m. Still the pros far outweighed the cons and it ensured I was up in time for the beautiful Kauai sunrises.

This was my 5th trip to Kauai in the last ten years and we have grown to love spending half our trip in Poipu and half up north in Princeville/Hanalei. We selected this condo because it's walkable to our favorite beaches, Poipu and Shipwrecks. Surprises: I have NEVER stayed in a condo with a better-equipped kitchen. Definitely beat my own, the only thing we found missing was shot glasses (we had college students with us, lol). The sunrises at this location were like none other I've found at VRBO's in Poipu, the location of this condo was perfect, I highly recommend. I hope I'm fortunate enough to stay again!
