Location was perfect, more steps than I thought. Layout good. Property is older and with high humidity had a problem with musty, mildewey odor, especially in 2nd bedroom and closet as well as washing machine and that area. Seemed to have a problem with being hot or cold and wet. Ocean, sunrise and sunset views awesome. Whales, dolphins and turtles too!

From the moment we got into our condo, we knew it was a great place to spend our vacation. The view of the ocean was wonderful, the condo was clean and inviting. The bedrooms were nice and so nice having 2 bathrooms! Then we got into making meals. There were plenty of cook wear and dishes and even storage containers. We brought extra spices with us, but were pleasantly surprised to find some at condo as well. There was information of restaurants, beaches, interesting places to see and farmers markets, etc. The beach wagon came in very handy, and the other beach accessories. My overall comment, we felt welcomed and were blessed by such a beautiful place to stay. Thank you!!

This property was perfect for our stay The layout was spacious enough for our family. The kitchen is very well stocked and has everything you could want or need for meal prep/cooking. A full sized washer and dryer made laundry so easy as I’m very used to seeing the compact versions in units. The unit has nicely updated bathrooms and the beds were quite comfortable. We spent mornings and evenings enjoying the stunning views from the patio. An unexpected bonus was a large selection of board games, cards, and books. The location is great, and it is an easy walk to several nearby beaches, a quick drive to restaurants and shopping, and exploring. Communication with the property management was fantastic! Every email had all the pertinent information, and all my additional questions received prompt replies. We would definitely stay here again!

Had a pleasant stay at this condo. It has everything you need. Great view with waves that crash into the rocks right outside. The deck gets a bit warm in the afternoon sun, wish there was some shade, but that is expected in Kauai. Saw turtles everyday, dolphins a couple times, and whales twice. Everything in the condo was as pictured and in working order.

Wonderful location in the Poipu area. Enjoyed the view from the lanai. Condo was very spacious and comfortable with many amenities. Property manager, Evelyn was very helpful. We would stay there again.

We booked this unit in Oct 2023. I wanted something truly oceanfront, so that even when we were having a lazy day, I could just step outside and watch the waves. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai, and saw dolphins go by on multiple occasions. There were always turtles in the water, and the rock formations gave us our own smaller version of the “spouting horn”! Very private end-unit with limited to no passers-by. Nice walking distance to poipu beaches and other resorts. I would not recommend the unit to anyone with mobility issues. It’s a long walk from the parking lot with multiple sets of stairs, including down to the unit itself. Clean unit, could use a mattress topper and more comfortable pillows in the master.

Words cannot express the outstanding view from the lanai. Dolphins were occasionally visible, huge splashes from waves hitting lava rocks is almost indescribable. Condo was very clean and offers comforts of home. The condo location offers so many advantages to restaurants, beaches and road system to all areas of the island. Excitement level will be high when you open the front door and see the ocean view. Evelyn, the property manager is wonderful. Very attentive and responsible. Highly recommend this condo.

Great location overlooking ocean. This is a corner unit and fairly private. (The only unit better than this one, would be the top floor) Although, much of the complex is a little dated/worn... this condo was freshly up-to-date and beautiful. A/C is plus and porch is extra large. This two-bedroom has a bigger feel to it because of the large living/kitchen areas. Not all condo units in Hawaii have their own washer & dryer, but this one conveniently does (another bonus). Owner also provided boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and beach towels. We would stay again!

Amazing views, clean and very well-equipped condo (including snorkeling gear for four!). We used the common grills most nights and they were great (new, well-maintained). The only nit is that the AC tends to be quite loud so we would have to turn it off at night. But all in all a great stay and we would certainly stay again.

We loved this property. Overlooking the ocean, wake up to the sound of the waves hitting the rocks or coming through the blowhole just outside. The property has everything you need and we plan to return

Usually where we stay is a bit is incidental to our trips, but this home was an amazing part of our Hawaii experience. Everything was first rate, immaculately maintained and supplied. The photos don’t do it justice. 10/10 & will repeat.

Hawaii beauty and nature in an immaculate 2 bedroom 2 bath ocean front, air conditioned unit. Better blow hole than the”spouting horn”right in our constant view. Breathtaking sunsets, rainbows, shooting stars, sea turtles and porpoises at play. Perfect for us and our 2 adult kids. We loved it. Lots of stairs for seniors but path gave respite at each level and we are better off for having stayed there. Mahalo

This condo was the perfect place for our family of five. The view from the lanai alone made it worth every penny. You can sit outside and watch waves crash on the rocks and turtles bobbing right in front of you all day. Beautiful walking path to Shipwreck Beach/Hyatt, short drive to great beaches and quiet property. Also perhaps the best stocked VRBO we’ve ever rented- every appliance, dish and basic seasoning in the kitchen. Nice not to have to buy all that. Clearly a well taken care of slice of paradise, glad we chose it!

Oh my goodness, we loved our stay at this property! Evelyn was so lovely in her prompt communication and responses. The property was very clean and provided plenty of room for our family of five. The view from the lanai was stunning! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the washer and dryer were great. Location very near restaurants, beaches and shopping. We used the onsite gas grills and my kids enjoyed playing pickleball on the onsite court. Without hesitation we would stay here again!

This is a beautiful place; the location, the view and the inside! There are lots of units that can be rented in this community but we really liked the location of this one. This unit has a ground floor patio so you're looking right at the waves, and it's a corner unit so you have a little more privacy. And it's close to the pool. Because it's right on the ocean, it is a further walk from the parking lot. Totally worth it! We arrived in the dark and were a little confused that the parking was not next to the unit. Then we looked closer at the map that was provided in the email. :) We had myself and my husband and two 20-something kids, we had plenty of space. The location is great! I wouldn't say it's close enough to walk to any beach but it's a couple minutes drive to Poipu Beach and there's plenty of free parking there. We used the kitchen often - for breakfast and drinks in the evening, it had everything we needed. Also, the air conditioning made it very comfortable

Our family of five had a great stay on the south end of Kauai. The apartment is conveniently located near beaches and the view from the balcony is stellar. We watched many sea turtles swim by. The kitchen was well equipped.

We loved the quietness of the property! The trail to Shipwreck Beach was amazing! Lots of turtle sittings. The property was just perfect, giving a super rating to the kitchen. It had everything you need. Enjoyed the whole experience, birds and ocean sounds.

This unit is all about the views! The unit was nicely appointed and kept, had all the amenities we needed, and communication with the management and staff was flawless. The only problem was leaving! Mahalo, until next time.

The views from this property over the water could have not been more beautiful! It was a treat to wake up every morning to the crashing waves and watch the sunset every night. It was plenty of room for my two daughters, my husband and myself. The location of the property was fantastic too. Very close to beautiful beaches, good restaurants, and delicious food trucks. Thank you so much for a great stay!

My wife and I had an amazing stay at this property in Kauai. The accommodations, amenities and the fabulous views from the lanai were perfect. We only wish we could have stayed in this unit longer. We will definitely look to book here again for future trips to Kauai.

Such a perfect setting to relax and enjoy the ocean, wildlife and sunsets. Spent most days relaxing on the lanai. A special place.

This condo is exactly as pictured in the description. The ocean view from the lanai is incredible and we saw many whales (season dependent) and also some turtles and dolphins. The condo has everything you need including a fully stocked kitchen and a washer and dryer. The location is very convenient and is within walking distance of the nearby beaches (Shipwreck, Poipu, and Brennecke's). The pool and jacuzzi are also nice options to have in the condo complex. I would definitely stay here again.

This property was everything and more than we could have hoped for. The condo was very spacious and had every amenity we needed. The view was amazing and every morning we woke to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks. It is convenient to shops, restaurants, and attractions. We would definitely stay here again!

Bring your coffee 20 ft and you see the sunrise over Makahuena Point. Relax with humpback whales, turtles and a pod of porpoise. Friends gather for sunset. Have you ever seen a green flash? Nicely remodeled unit at the Makahuena. Discover Kauai Properties Management attended to our every need. Cheers to Evelyn, Novella and Eve. Mahalo

I stayed here with my wife and her parents (late 70's). The unit was perfect and located in a wonderful part of Kauai. The check-in process was flawless and the unit came equipped with everything we needed. The views of the back lanai were amazing and we were lucky to be able to see many whales migrating. The waves crashing into the rocks were so relaxing and I could stay there for hours with a book. I don't remember if it is in description but please keep in mind there are some steps down from the parking area and then steps down again to the unit so for some folks, there may be a mobility concern. I would definitely stay here for future trips or recommend to family and friends. Thank you for an amazing stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. The views were spectacular! You can't ask for a better ocean view. Communication with the management company was top notch. The chairs provided are not really "beach" chairs, but it was easy to rent some for the time we were there. Everything else was provided as promised. The pillows in the primary bedroom were a tad too hard for us, but that is a preference thing. If we were to re-book this property (which we absolutely would) we'd bring our travel pillows.

Stunning views at any time of the day, we were even fortunate enough to see turtles multiple times! The condo was very well stocked, clean, comfortable, and spacious! The management company was very helpful and quick to respond, even when we locked ourselves out. We even walked into a very thoughtful care package to welcome us when we arrived. The only complaint that I have which isn't really a complaint, just a suggestion is that the multiple stairs to get to the unit be in the description because someone that struggles physically with the stairs may need a different lodging option. My 75-year-old mother struggled a bit with the stairs, especially with our luggage getting in and out.

We loved our stay in this corner condo unit in Poipu. Everything was clean and functional, each area has an AC unit, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there were beach supplies as well. The view from the lanai is just amazing, with surf crashing off the rocks, turtles bobbing around, and dolphins passing by. Poipu beach is a short (if hilly) walk, and there is a great trail going the opposite way toward Shipwreck's beach and the Makawehi cliffs. Communication with our host was great and they gave us everything we needed for a nice and easy stay. We would definitely return to this great condo.
