Makahuena condo description

The Makahuena condominium resort is a small, friendly complex located right at Poipu Point, Kauai's southernmost point. It is one of the few places in Kauai where you are able to view both sunrise and sunset. Our two-floor, two-bedroom and two-and-a-half-bath condominium is furnished with all the comforts of home and has an unobstructed ocean view. In 2013 we replaced all beds and mattresses with up-market beds, and we now offer Wifi access free of charge.

You are able to walk to some of the best beaches in Kauai, with snorkeling, surfing, and fishing only a few minutes away. The unit is located in a quiet building of the resort away from parking and noise. The shady afternoon location of the balcony and master bedroom areas, and the south shore tradewinds will keep you comfortable and relaxed. The resort amenities include a lighted tennis court, a covered BBQ area, and a large swimming pool with a jacuzzi.

The Makahuena resort is meticulously maintained with tropical plants, bananas and plumerias at your fingertips. All activities are within a short walk or drive, including shopping, golf and rental car pick up. Mahalo for inquiring about our site.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are Marilyn and Peter Muth. We own this condominium jointly with our son Eric and his wife. It was the Maine winter that made us look for a warm holiday destination. The rest is history: We fell in love with Kauai, with its unique sights, magical natural beauty and the spectacular cliffs at Makahuena. We saw whales from the cliffs almost every day, and sea turtles as we strolled along the shore. When the opportunity presented itself, we bought the unit at Makahuena. We invite you to experience 'Paradise Island' as guests in our condominium.

                  Why the Owner Chose Makahuena:
                  We bought this particular condominium because: (1) it is on the top floor, and we enjoy a view of the ocean and the beautiful Kauai mountains that is above the shrubs and trees that partially obstruct the view from lower-floor condos; (2) it is in the only Makahuena building that gets the full effect of the trade winds and does not need air conditioning; (3) after about 10:30 AM the sun is behind the roof, and our condo, including the lanai, is in the shade - making that afternoon drink on the lanai especially pleasant; and (4) the condo is far enough from the pool and the parking lot to insulate it from all noise from those locations.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  It was the view from the lanai and the spectacular breakfast sunrises that made us fall in love with our condo, and the love affair has never stopped.
