Break away to surf, sand and fun on your next family vacation. Enjoy it all when you stay at oceanfront Makahuena Resort. Our recently remodeled two-bedroom Poipu condo here (Makahuena 1309) has a fantastic view of the ocean and pool. The layout is ideal for up to 6 guests. Refined simplicity reigns supreme framed by the magical view of the sea.

With two levels you will have more than enough space to please everyone. The functional Great Room has an open design that leads to the ocean view covered lanai where lively conversations are waiting to happen with family and friends. There is outdoor dining here too and a chance to see huge waves crashing against the shore, humpback whales breaching in winter or dolphins playing at any time of year.

Two large suites with king and queen beds and private baths are on the upper level and are all the ocean view bedroom. When it’s time to eat and dine, the full kitchen works ideally for any chef with its elegant quartz counter tops and premium stainless-steel appliances.

There’s more fun waiting for you at Makahuena Resort with complimentary tennis court and an ocean view swimming pool. Load beach gears on a cart and walk along the beach trail to enjoy swimming, snorkeling and surfing at the popular beaches in Poipu. With Poipu, Brennecke's, and Shipwreck beaches each a short stroll away, guests can take advantage of our beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys, and spacious cart.

Enjoy morning walk or jogging on the Poipu Beach Trail towards Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail and admire the breathtaking view over Shipwreck Beach and the beautiful Grand Hyatt Resort. Explore a 3.7 mile scenic trail towards Punahoa Point that offers the chance to see wildlife and the local flora.

Brennecke's Deli and Brennecke's Beach Broiler serve lunch and dinner nearby, and a five-minute drive leads to Poipu Shopping Village and The Shops at Kukuiula, both of which have an assortment of dining and shopping possibilities. Another five-minute drive brings guests to Old Koloa Town, where historic plantation buildings have been carefully renovated to create a charming village with additional restaurants and shops, as well as a grocery store.

If you’re itching to get out and explore Kauai…good news. Guests can reach Waimea Canyon in an hour and the lush north shore in 90 minutes, with many natural wonders to discover in between.

This was a great place for our family to stay on our vacation. This property had everything we could have needed and more. Close to several beaches and nice to have the pool downstairs! Would definitely stay again!

This condo was very close to the water, with convenient walks to Poipu and Shipwreck Beaches. The condo itself had some issues. The windows/screens on the upstairs bedrooms were filthy. (Ie bugs stuck in the screens, and the windows so dirty that it looked like you were looking through fog outside.) There were other maintenance issues, such as chipping paint, grime around cabinet handles, and drawers that didn’t work properly. On the plus side, the management company offered a mid-stay free cleaning!

Great views from Lanai of waves crashing on rocks below. Condo was clean and very well stocked. Appreciated all of the beach equipment, towels, and boogie boards. The kitchen was equipped very well with everything needed, including a large spice rack. The only drawback is many stairs to deal with and the refrigerator ice makes was not working. Overall a great condo. Would rent it again and have already recommended it to friends.

We had a wonderful vacation here, everything we needed was to be found in the condo. Peaceful coffee on the balcony in the morning. We enjoy our stay here!

We recently stayed at this vacation rental in Kauai with my partner and son. The location was great, offering beautiful views and a convenient setting. However, we faced some challenges during our stay. The louvered windows in the upstairs bedrooms were heavily soiled and sealed shut, limiting our ability to appreciate the wonderful views, cross-breeze, and shoreline sounds. Additionally, the kitchen was not fully functioning. Communication with the management was strained, which further impacted our experience. While the location is promising, improvements are needed for a more enjoyable stay.

Our family had such a great time at this property. Amazing views all over! We loved hearing the ocean at night. We were very relaxed staying here. The hosts provided everything we needed for our adventures. We will come back again!

This place is a great spot to stay. The property is a little dated on the outside, but updated on the inside. They are retrofitting the balconies so the railing had some caution mesh on it with a sign advising not to lean on/ stay away. The only gripe I have and feel should be mentioned is that the lanai/ balcony has the AC fan/ power supply on it ( not pictured in description) which blows hot air right at/ onto the table and chairs when you are out there standing/ sitting. It also has some normal sound that naturally comes with it. Our way around it was to shut all the AC units off when using the lanai. Kind of a bummer at first but we got over it pretty quick. We would definitely consider staying again for the location and the size of the unit. We had a great time in Kauai.

The condominium was exactly as shown in the photos. The decor was very nice, the television is huge. The cleaning was up to my high standards. There were also a ton of great details. Check in was easy, as was check out. There is a bit of a walk down an incline to get to the stairs to get to the condo. Just a heads up. The view from the balcony was amazing. It was my happy place and I miss that the most. I would recommend this place!

Very nice condo in a great location. Owner thought of everything in regards to supplies and beach accessories. We spent the first part of our trip in Princeville and finished in Poipu Bay. Only there three nights. Hope to spend more time down South next time. Would absolutely stay in this unit again.

Wonderful location with view of ocean and exciting crash of waves into cliff. Spotted whales and turtles from the lanai! Beautifully decorated and every detail considered from appliances to beach accessories. Hope to return someday!
