This is a great place. Wonderfully views. Very clean. The pool is nice. Great beach nearby. Loved spending time on the balcony.
This condo is great and everything we hoped it would be (and as advertised). The location is perfect, the complex is quiet, but only a 10 minute walk to the action at Poipu. We would love to stay here again on a future visit.
Got early check-in, which was delightful. Very accommodating. The room had great views in an excellent location.
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.
We really enjoyed staying here! It’s in a wonderful location in Poipu, where you can walk to beach, grab lunch, or just to take in beautiful views. The condo is very nice in a serene building. It’s very spacious and has everything you need for staying in or going to the beach. We also appreciated having a washer and dryer! A few other reviews mentioned the construction happening alongside, but it never bothered us during our stay. The only thing to note is it does get pretty warm in the evenings even with the windows open, but that is a small thing with everything else being so great!
Wonderful stay! We especially loved the view from the balcony! The welcome basket was also an extra special touch. Would stay here again!
We had a wonderful condo with a fantastic view. Going to sleep with the lull of the ocean was so relaxing. Much to see and do in the area as well.
I could tell from the pictures it was going to be amazing but then you walk in and it's a wow takes your breath away. We were here for a week and we usually stay up on the North shore which we love but we definitely will be staying here again hopefully at this house
This place is in a good location with nice views of the ocean and sunset. The place needs updating. It had an 80s beachy feel. There was no drain cover on the master bathtub, and I could see hair wrapped around the drain. The tile floor is not the most appealing. We didn't know how to work the air conditioner at first, so we were hot the first two nights. Once we figured it out it was fine. The kitchen was well stocked. The place only had 5 beach towels even though it says it holds 8 people. There were plenty of other beach supplies.
This condo is located in a really ideal location in Poipu. You can easily walk to several different beaches and restaurants. The view from the unit of the ocean is beautiful and the breezes off of the water are perfect and really helpful on hot days. The condo building and unit are a bit dated and could use some upgrades, but it was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. They provided beach chairs, umbrellas, and snorkel gear which was wonderful and we used them daily. Overall, this was a great place and we enjoyed our stay!
This was a fantastic property, ideally situated in town that provided a great home base for the trip. The unit is clean, has all the necessary trappings of home and has a peaceful view of the nearby ocean. Our family of 4 was very comfortable and would happily stay here again.
The perfect place to stay on Kauai!
This property is located near beaches, golfing, hiking, And a variety of restaurants. The condo is well equipped with all you need for a great trip.
Property was amazing. Clean. The view was stunning.
Convenient location and beautiful views. The house provides beach towels and chairs.
The unit was comfortable and clean. It's location is an asset as it's next to the Maha'uepu Heritage walk and a park where the turtles rest. Great stay.
Loved the condo and building. Pool and hot tub were so nice, the view from the condo was amazing and in a great location. Condo was very clean and a nice layout.
We had a wonderful time at this property! The condo is an end unit with beautiful views right on the ocean. Jeremy and Kristen were wonderful hosts who were very attentive.
The condo was a pretty long walk from the parking lot with several sets of steps.
Amazing 1 yr Anniversary
We enjoyed the location of this property and sitting out in the patio. For the most part, the place looked clean, but we found a used towel left hanging on the bathroom door upon check-in and a small cockroach that came in/out from behind the master bathroom mirror! It also gets hot in the master bedroom so we had to keep the sliding door open to allow air-conditioned air in. Overall, despite these two issues, it was a comfortable stay and an even nicer location.
Loved the walk along the beach. Location couldn't be better.
It was perfect for a week on Kauai. Spacious and clean nice to have rooms with separate bathrooms and ocean view from the balcony. No AC, but with the windows open it wasn’t bad. Would stay here again!
The location of the home was great! It was located by a trail in front of the ocean, and was a short 10-20 min walk to Brenneckes and Poipu beach! The kitchen was well stocked and the bed sheets were clean. The view of the ocean was great from the balcony and rooms! Each room also had its own air conditioning. There were plenty of beach supplies such as umbrellas, snorkel gear, coolers, boogie boards, and sunscreen to use! We really enjoyed our stay!
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!
I believe I have rented this condo in the past. It was very nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable! I definitely will come back! Mahalo for such a nice accommodation on Kauai
Dated but clean
The place is fine. We were concerned that there was no AC but for us turned out not to be a problem with the ocean breeze. Jeremy was quick to respond to our requests and questions. Comfortable stay
Beautiful property with some nice amenities and really close to the ocean. There was a lot noise early in the morning though, I think construction and trash pick up.
Easy walk to the beach! Beautiful Views from balcony and property! Nice pool-not busy. Overall we loved our stay at the house. The only downside that is out of control of the owners is a lower neighbor or guest of the property who smoked in the mornings and later afternoon. The smell would creep into upstairs bedrooms, especially in early morning. Not a great way to wake up, but again that’s not the owners fault, but something people should be aware of in case it’s a tigger.
We loved our stay here so much! We have been traveling to Kauai for the past 30 years and tend to stay on the East side of the island. We switched it up this year and could not have been happier with this place! Perfect size for our little family. Lots of kitchen amenities, ample space for everyone and a lovely location.
We were couples / friends with differing ideas, this condo was the most well stocked one we have been to and the location was perfect, easy access to everything on the south / central area, we all truly felt grateful for this opportunity and loved seeing they had recycling and also eco saavy !
Very comfortable condo, RIGHT on the water, sounds of the crashing waves on the rocks are amazing. Big open views, saw Whales, Turtles, and Dolphins. Very nice pool, grass areas, flowers! BBQ on-site. 10-15 minute walk to Poipu Beach, and beautiful walk the other direction to Shipwreck Beach, liked the Hawaiian decor. Very responsive property manager.
Everything was great for all of us. Having on-suites in both bedrooms made getting ready in the mornings a time saver. Overall a perfect place for 2 families.
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.
Condo is close to the beach and a walking trail. Relatively clean given it is a beach house (carpet and tile dirty). Stocked with plenty of beach gear. No A/C was not a big deal....trade winds kept it cool. Would not hesitate to stay here again
Great location with nice view of the ocean. The unit was as good or better than the pictures. Facilities were well cared for and the maintenance crew was friendly and helpful.
This rental was everything we wanted and more. We chose Kauai for its reputation for being less crowded, safe, and still having all the attractions of the bigger islands. We chose the south side because of the sunnier weather forecast and easier beach access. Makahuena is the absolute perfect location on the south side. We were worried it was on a rocky part—that is true but the whole coast on the south side is a combination of rocks, then beach, then rocks and so on. All the south side beaches were very nearby. We found the best snorkeling at Lawai and Poipu beaches and the best boogie boarding at Brennecke’s beach. Shipwreck and Poipu are both big beaches. We rented a car and needed it to get to our activities. Activities on the west and on the east are about 35 minutes away. We also rented beach cruiser bikes and used them to ride to beaches and restaurants on the south side. I recommend Kauai e-bikes in Koloa….reasonable prices and the deliver and pick up the bikes. Why Makahuena 5101? View! It is the absolute closest to the ocean. The surf is awesome and puts on a show all day. We saw turtles and whales right from the porch. Sunset and sunrise are also viewable right from the porch. The high top table out there is the best seat in the house. Accessibility: The coast on the south side is gentle hills and you cannot avoid slopes. You can access the unit with a path and one set of stairs and it’s not that far. Having AC was great. The unit is well equipped. Great stay
Rain....rain and more rain...
Oh and windy!! Super windy. Maybe not the best time of year. First time to Kauai and found it very lovely but very expensive...more than Maui. Need a car for sure to get around. Not too impressed with the unit. Not sure when it was cleaned last ...found a black hair in the bed and I am blonde gray...blood on the comforter in the other room. Little dated and sure not worth what we paid. Cuz it's Kauai? Orange snow fence around the glass on the deck.... does the unit have issues?? We were not too impressed ...probs last time booking with VRBO because the unit Maui last year was worst
This condo was beyond expectations, the pictures don't do this place justice! Perfect balcony for morning coffee and listening to the waves crash! Well thought out in everything stocked! I knew going in that there was no AC but fans in every room made for a great atmosphere! I would book here again in a heartbeat!
The property was very nice, a quiet location but close to the beach and restaurants. We enjoyed the trails nearby and the coast scenery was breath taking. The condo was very well equiped with lots of supplies , towels and sports equipment. The only improvement I could suggest would be a small drying rack for damp swim suits and towels in the laundry room. WE had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to others.
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.
Thank for making our trip wonderful!
We loved this place! Location, location location! We went with another couple who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They, of course, got the bedroom with the ocean view and were thrilled listening to the waves all night. The place had everything we needed to go to the beach..deluxe beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and a wagon to pull it all. Even though we walked to Poipu Beach to see the green sea turtles and monk seals, we enjoyed Shipwreck Beach more which was only a 5 minute ride. It was not as crowded and enjoyed watching the cliff jumpers and surfers. Every morning sitting on the balcony, we saw sea turtles and dolphins. We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful place!
My husband, adult daughter and her 3 month old stayed for five nights in this beautiful condo. With the baby and my husband working (great WiFi) we spent more time in the condo than a normal vacation so we were happy with how comfortable it was. And the view was amazing. We cooked most meals in the well stocked kitchen.
We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Communication with the host was informative and plentiful. Yes there are stairs but they were not as bad as I feared (short flights, well marked and safe, good handrails).
We walked to Shipwreck Beach but drove everywhere else, although without the baby we could have walked to Brennecke’s and Poipu Beach. Although we did not see whales, we did see sea turtles on Poipu Beach!
The place was just as described. Plenty of towels, beach gear, toiletries, etc. kitchen was well stocked. Could use a cheese grater. It was windy most of our stay making sitting outside difficult but the last day we were there it was beautiful. People on walking path were not too big of an issue. Great location!
This two bedroom was perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and we enjoyed the view. We saw dolphins whales and sea turtles from the patio! The walk to the point allows a great sunrise, and sunset.
Beautiful place! Clean, well appointed. I’m sad to go. Thanks fot an amazing vacation! You want to make a reservation!? Don’t hesitate!
Everything we needed and more
Everything was as expected. It was clean and quiet with nice amenities like a community pool/hottub, beach stuff in the closet, beach towels, and a well stocked kitchen in regards to pots/pans, cups, utensils, etc.
Gorgeous and tastefully decorated, spacious condo with unparalleled views of crashing waves, sea turtles and vibrant sunsets! We even saw whales and dolphins in the distance. Close to the beach and some great meals at nearby restaurants (Eating House, Red Salt, food trucks in neighboring towns). Loved the proximity to Waimea Canyon, Port Henry (Boating tours launch here), Botanical Gardens, Spouting Horn, Old Koloa, Etc). Spent many parts of our day just watching the waves crash and spotting sea turtles. Although this is in a development of condos, it is very quiet and this particular condo feels isolated from any other vacationers.. a true getaway! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
The room was very spacious and clean. The kitchen had updated appliances and was stocked with all the essentials. 1 boogie board, a couple kickboards, snorkel gear, two beach chairs, and tennis rackets were there for your use. 5-10 min walk to Poipu Beach, or 10-15 min walk to Shipwreck beach. We received lots of communications from the management company before and during our stay to ensure everything was great. Our experience was great here.
This property is the first place I stayed in which the pictures did not truly capture the beauty of the views. The pictures were impressive and they were why we selected this location, but walking through the door was jaw dropping.
A truly beautiful condo, with an amazing location. Being the corner condo, we had windows on two full walls, allowing us to see miles of crashing waves, whales spouting and breaching, turtles surfing, and both sunrises and sunsets.
Beds, towels, kitchen equipment, showers....everything was clean and luxurious.
With the tables and chairs on the balcony, we were able to have all our meals outdoors, watching the waves and marine life. Lovely!
Enjoyed pool and hot tub and especially the views. Condo was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked.
The unit is on the second floor and very noisy with people walking around upstairs at all hours of the night. We would wake up at 3am to the sound of footsteps- and at 6am, etc. so there must be very little insulation between the floors.
There are homes being built next door so you see construction debris.
The unit was nicely furnished. The linens were nice and the beds comfortable. The very nice thing is the location to the walking path. It is right on the path with easy access.
This is our second time staying in this incredible condo. The view from the lanai is stunning. We saw whales, dolphins and turtles and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Highly recommended.
This condo is situated on a beautiful property overlooking the ocean. The property is well maintained. The condo was big enough for our family members of six. I also agree with other previous reviews that the Unit needs some TLC, upgrading and decluttering.
Maintenance was prompt to repair 2 holes in the screen and communicated well when attention was needed for pest control.
Location in Poipu was easy to travel around and walking distance to Poipu Beach.
My month long stay could not have been improved on!
Communication with Marsha was prompt and she always was there for me and any questions I had.
There are no words for the view from the condo! Pictures in the listing don’t do it justice. Watched whales going by from the lanai.
The condo has everything needed for your visit, all the essentials are there.
The pool and hot tub were nice to look forward to towards the end of the day.
I had a mid month cleaning and it looked like I had just walked in on the first day.
Location is awesome. Close to beaches and great walking trails right outside the door.
The Management team appeared to really care about the complex and the cleanliness of the grounds.
Truly a month of paradise and a big thx to Marsha for her Aloha Spirit🌴
Its a very pleasant and convenient property. Manager is very responsive and cooperative.
We loved Kauai and had a great stay at this spacious and beautiful condo. Wonderful location and it had everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony spotting whales. I didn’t give this condo five stars because the beds were not comfortable, which impacted our sleep for the 9 nights we were here. We’d definitely recommend the purchase of new beds given the price point of a nightly stay at this condo. I’d also suggest a kettle for the kitchen. Thank you!
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.
Great condo in a great location. Can't beat the sunrise view!
We enjoyed our time in Poipu. This unit had a good view of the ocean for whale watching and an easy walk for sunsets.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit. The suite was spacious for our group of six - two seniors, two adults and two teens. We appreciated the three bedrooms with separate beds for the kids. The kitchen Island was great for seating everyone at mealtimes, though we also savoured morning coffee on the lanai. The living area offered seating for everyone to watch some of the provided DVDs in the evenings. Our group made enthusiastic use of the supplied boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels. We absolutely loved the location on the point. The view from the suite was beautiful over the pool and ocean. We ran down to the point to watch sunset each evening and spot the many sea turtles and whales that passed by. My older son used a drone to catch amazing footage of a whale and its playful calf. We took walks along the stunning coast to the spectacular adjacent resorts and the Makauwahi Cave. Poipu Beach is a ten minute walk away and offered the best snorkeling we found at this time of year. Our sons also had a blast surfing at a neighbouring beach. So much to do and explore from here with highlights including Waimea Canyon, kayaking to Secret Falls off the Wailua River, and hiking in Haena State Park. The island was busy for March Break and we found it difficult to get restaurant reservations. As a result, we made great use of the suite’s well appointed kitchen. We do recommend trying Keoki’s Paradise which is lovely and offers pina coladas served in pineapples. So fun! The pool at the Makahuena is lovely and we noted was often quiet in the middle of the day. My mom loved having a “private pool” during those hours. Thanks so much for sharing this home in paradise with us!
Beautiful property. True vacation spot.Modern upscale accommodations.Spotless.Owners and
Property manager pays attention to detail for a relaxing, pleasant stay
As advertised. Clean and equipped with all we needed for our visit. Good communication and response from owner/condo manager. Easy walk into town. Would rent there again.
The location of the property overlooking the ocean was great! We saw humpback whale pods every day of our stay and sea turtles swimming right below us! Beaches are within walking distance east or west of the property. Grocery stores, shopping, weekly farmers market, and restaurants are all within a short walk or drive. Great sunsets from the balcony or on the ground. The downside is that the ocean was often very loud as it crashed against the cliff side. With just the two of us in the unit, we could use the second bedroom to get sleep away from the sound if needed.
The unit is very open with plenty of windows. Nicely decorated. The kitchen is a bit tight but manageable. Both bathrooms are somewhat dated and you need to be wary of ants in the kitchen who will show up at any sign of food on the counter.
The rest of the property is well-maintained with ample parking. The pool was nice to have available and was never very busy. Took full advantage of the grills as well.
Overall, we would recommend this to others.
Outstanding location and amenities and a beautiful condo. Claire is the best owner I’ve ever worked with on VRBO. The added touches to make us feel welcome were very much appreciated.
The property was in a beautiful waterfront location and close to beaches and trails. The unit itself was very nice. The only issues were windows that were quite coated/obscured with salt and some that wouldn’t close. This made for some rain getting in and very loud whistling when the high winds came. The entire complex was having its railings assessed, so there was construction netting across. The property manager gave us a warning about this ahead of time and a discount on our stay. Overall a very pleasant stay!
Enjoyed our stay in Poipu. We were 5 adults spending one week. Clean, lots of water toys and beach chairs. Location great, walking distance to beach ( 5-7 minutes) walking distance to heritage trail a must do. Views of ocean were great as pictures show. Condo comfortably fits 5 adults. Beds comfortable, has air conditioning but never used as breeze from ocean was enough. Building itself is showing its age, there is work being done on building but never disrupted our stay. We had a screen missing from one of the windows on arrival. Vicki Agor very prompt in correcting issue.
The condo was perfect. Clean, comfortable, and close to great beaches and food! We saw so many whales and turtles from the balcony! Check in and check out was fast and simple with great communication from the property manager from the moment we booked it to when we were checking out. Would definitely come back!
We spent three nights here. The lanai was our favorite as we saw many whales frolicking in the ocean. Everything was just as represented. A couple of minor maintenance problems that will likely be resolved before the next guests. Great location and lovely setting.
The property is NOT a 4.8 star. The condo had chipped paint on a lot of windows. The floors are very worn. The outside railing had a sign on it saying it was not safe. The entire property was not well maintained. I felt that I way overpaid for this stay. I will not stay here again.
Multiple flight of stairs to the unit. Three flights of stairs to the pool. No elevator, no cell service, beds were very old. Kitchen supplies are old and mis-matched. The unit was hot and humid even with all the fans running. This was my 6th visit to Kauai. Never again at this property.
Our stay at the poipu condo was amazing. The beachfront view was breathtaking!!!! We saw whales right from the lanai every morning!
When we needed extra clean towels, the property manager was very prompt and attentive to our requests and needs. She was awesome. From the beginning of our Vrbo reservation, the owners treated us like family staying in their home. Any questions we had , they quickly returned our emails or calls. Highly recommend staying here Thank you 😊
Great views from the balcony to monitor whales spouting and on the check out day, they were breaching. Enjoyed seeing the turtles at Poipu Beach.
Just beautiful! After staying 10 days there is not one negative comment!
Was as advertised. Beautiful views from the lanai. The condo was surprisingly well stocked with toiletries, beach gear, towels, etc. would stay again. Nice new fridge with ice maker.
We stayed for about 10 days have nothing but terrific things to say about the property. Everything was as advertised; from the general location, the air conditioning, the ocean views (with whale watching from the lanai and binoculars were provided!), and the everything else provided in the condo, including very comfortable beach chairs. When (not if) we come back to Poipu, we hope to stay in this property again. Thanks for the fast responses Claire!
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!
The views from the complex are some of the best we saw while here- watched whales in the morning and evening and then took a quick drive down to the beach to witness seals and turtles on the shore. Had a great time snorkeling! Would highly recommend this unit to anyone!
You can walk ten minutes either way and hit two beautiful beaches. Couldn’t be a better location on Kauai. Really enjoyed our stay.
This property worked perfectly for our 2 couples and a single for the 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms. Kitchen had a lot of cooking supplies and appliances. No spices or saran wrap/foil etc. Lots of beach gear like chairs, boogie boards, Snorkeling gear etc. Awesome views of both Sunsets and sunrise. Beautiful view right from our lanai. Main negative of this property is the decor of the bathroom and some of the tiles/ trim need to be replaced and could use a deep cleaning. That said we would definitely would come back as it worked well for our home for 8 nights!! MAHALO!!!
Wonderful stay. Beautiful sunrises. Fabulous whale watching offstage balcony in the morning! Good walking path along the ocean. Perfect condo...clean, roomy, nice kitchen. Thank you!
Location and condo were great
We thoroughly enjoyed the location, convenience, and comfort of this property. We appreciated the availability of basic supplies for our stay. Being right on the Poipu Cliff trail was wonderful, and proximity to Poipu Beach amenities and restaurants was perfect. Lovely views from the condo, if a bit windy!
We had a very comfortable stay in this tremendous location. The experience of being right on top of the cliff with the waves crashing just feet away is extraordinary. Communication with Chad, the property manager, was excellent, and when we had a small issue, it was resolved quickly. The bedrooms with attached bathrooms are separate from each other allowing privacy. The addition of air conditioning was most appreciated, especially since the wall facing the ocean is mostly glass with sun during the day, and given the thunderous sound of the crashing waves. We saw whales, spinner dolphins, and turtles from the condo. It is appropriately named “the sea spray house”, and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Mahalo Chad!
Our family had the best time staying at this condo! From coffee on the lanai, walks along the path to Shipwreck Beach, walks to Poipu Beach, watching sunrises and sunsets, watching the whales and sleeping comfortably. This condo had everything and more! Fully stocked, nice breeze throughout, everything you need in the kitchen, great bbq area, a lot of beach gear and beach towels. Hearing the waves hit the rocks was amazing! Very nice condo and had such a great stay!
Overall very nice, unit was good. Windy in wintertime — Could not use balcony!
Kitchen well- stocked which was appreciated.
Communication with property manager management was a bit difficult. They were friendly but hard to reach on the occasions we wanted to.
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.
Enough Space for 5 and in a beautiful spot. The ocean vue was incredible
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!
Very nice condo in a great location on Poipu. Liked the upstairs/downstairs layout as we don't like to hear footsteps over our head from neighbors! Great walking path just outside and a nice pool. The unit was very well stocked with juices/sodas/condiments and laundry supplies.. Only drawback were some spots/corners that could have been cleaned better...not a major issue. We had strong winds during our visit which limited use of the lanai and the water sports equipment. Overall, we would certainly recommend this unit.
We lived on Kauai for 5 years and stayed at the Grand Hyatt numerous times, but this was the first time we have vacationed back to Kauai since we moved away. We went through renting a VRBO, primarily because the 4 of us stayed 2 full weeks in Poipu. This property is in a prime location right on the ocean and we loved the ease of preparing meals, having cocktails, watching whales and turtles, sun and moon rises and settings right from the lanai. Showers, bedding, towels, appliances are all first rate and everything functioned nicely. We were within easy walking distance to the Grand Hyatt and Poipu Beach. Parking was plentiful and we never had to search for a spot to park. I was able to rent a bicycle from Briggs Bikes in Harbor Mall and ride to my heart's content. This area of the island is actually our favorite for ease of access to paths and safe walking, too. We never tired of watching all that the ocean has to offer, but when we did, we all slept very well in comfortable surroundings. What a terrific way to vacation. Thank you!
This unit is well stocked a great layout and clean - you will not be disappointed! It is accessible to great beaches within walking distance and it is also a great location if you want to drive and explore other parts of the island without spending all your time in your vehicle. The complex is safe and other guests and condo owners are friendly. If you want to get advice on what to do on the island just chat to anyone in the hot tub - it is a great way to hear honest reviews and get recommendations on excursions and activities.
We really enjoyed your condo in Poipu. This it the perfect location. Thank You!
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our eight night stay, the property was perfect for our family of four, including my two daughters who are 8 and 5. The views are breathtaking and the condo is very well equipped with anything you might need. The complex is lovely and the location within Poipu is close to everything but on the edge to feel like you’re a bit away from it all which is perfect. We will look to stay again in the future!
Fantastic condo - location, only a few steps away from the ocean and the waves washing up against the rocks below is so relaxing.
The lanai is unbelievably wide, providing amazing views in any direction, the kitchen, living room and bedrooms are very spacious and have all the amenities you will require….
The Makahuena complex in general could be challenging for those older and looking to avoid steps in accessing units, however there are a few areas where ramps may help.
We had a fantastic time in Kauai, can’t wait to return.
