Poipu Makai condo description
Come to the sunny side of Kauai and enjoy our quiet, 1,400 square foot, relaxing top floor condo with unobstructed panoramic ocean views. Enjoy the sound and visual beauty of the waves crashing on the lava rock below. Have your morning coffee on the lanai while watching the turtles feed and the dolphins frolic. Whales can be seen at times of the year as well! This small 15 unit complex faces west affording beautiful sunsets every evening. Our unit was recently remodeled and boasts granite surfaces in the kitchen and bathrooms, travertine tile in the bathrooms, and is beautifully appointed with warm, welcoming Island Decor.
Not only are there 3 bedrooms (one king/master suite, one queen/master suite and one with 2 twin beds and it's OWN lanai overlooking the garden), but there is an additional sitting area in the loft with a second TV/VCR/DVD. A perfect set up for the keikis (children)! The Poipu Makai complex has a small pool which is ideal for the kids to frolic. Our unit is managed professionally which allows you to have concierge services, complimentary organic bath products and a complimentary coffee and tea basket with local Kauai coffee.
Poipu Makai is located between Poipu Beach, voted one of the best beaches in the world, and Shipwreck Beach. Either beach is a short walk away, or can be driven to in no time. There you can sit and relax, or partake in boogie boarding and/or snorkeling. Kauai is a relatively small island, so it can easily be explored in full while using your Poipu condo as a home base.
Come stay at our condo and have a vacation of a lifetime!

Best sunsets ever!
Best sunsets ever!
The condo was perfect for our family of five. It was wonderful to see turtles and whales everyday day and the sunsets were just beautiful. I think it's the best spot on Poipu for sunsets. The condo was clean and had the essentials; laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, paper towels etc but the kitchen was lacking spices for cooking, just had salt and pepper. My only complaint is with the upstairs bedroom. I couldn't sleep with the sound of the water hitting the rocks down below. The windows were not very sound proof. I love the sound of the ocean but it was a little too loud at times. If we ever go to Poipu again, we will definitely stay at this condo but just bring some ear plugs. lol

Our family rented the unit early August 2011. We were a large crew. My wife and myself, three adult sons, and the significant other of my oldest son. We would happily stay there again. The views from the porch are magnificent. You are directly above a dramatic rocky coastline. You look west over the southern part of the island and see a wonderful sunset. It is a middling walk to Poipu beach. The unit is well maintained. The only negative is that the master bedroom is on the top floor overlooking the living room and above the kitchen. There is little privacy. Happily the sound of the waves on the rocks drowned out our children allowing us to go to bed while they stayed up and chatted. The bathrooms are spacious, modern, and clean. The kitchen is adequate and clean. The bedrooms are large and nicely appointed. There are ample towels. There is a sturdy washer and dryer. I could go on, but you get the point. It is as advertised and worth the price. This was our first time to Hawaii so I can't compare the area to other areas. The local restaurants are pricey and not very memorable (though one was memorably bad). The local grocery is deplorable. The natural attractions of the island are extraordinary. The unit was a wonderful home base and a wonderful place to return to at the end of day. You will find yourself rushing back to enjoy the sunset from the unit.

Guest comment entered by manager
There are MANY rave reviews in the guest book on the condo coffee table. Most of our guests are not from VRBO or Home Away, hence we don't have online reviews (yet!). I would say the most often raved about aspect is the beautiful location right at the water's edge. People especially enjoy sitting at the table on the veranda in the morning taking their breakfast with the turtles down below. Guests repeatedly comment on how the condo with it's elegance and locale add so much to their overall experience on Kauai. Being "home" is as wonderful as exploring the island! Come enjoy our condo!

About: Hi, my name is Wendi. I have been affiliated with the Hawaiian community since my teen years. I am a Tahitian drummer for a local Polynesian Dance troupe on the Mainland. I have always dreamed of owning a slice of Hawaiian paradise, and recently my dream came true! I hope you enjoy staying at my condo as much as I do!
Why Poipu Makai:
I chose to buy a property on the island of Kauai because it has such stunning natural beauty and is less built up than Maui. The south end is the sunny side of the island so there is the greatest chance of having nice weather during your stay. I enjoy having a place RIGHT ON the water to get that special feel of really living in paradise! The sound of the waves crashing on the lava rock and the panoramic ocean vista is what resonates with me. I also really love the sweet smelling balmy air. The minute I get off the airplane and take that first breath, I know I have arrived in paradise!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our favorite things to do are visiting Waimea Canyon, hiking the Napali coastline, boating the rivers, zip lining, horseback riding, boogie boarding, snorkeling, and exploring Hanalei area shops and restaurants. Poipu has many wonderful high end restaurants (and otherwise!) just minutes from our condo. Smith's Garden Luau is a fun show to see as well with local food and entertainment. I really enjoy the local food. Try sesame poke, lau lau, rambutan, shave ice and kalua pig. Let me know what you think!
