Makanui condo description
Newly renovated 2bdrm, 2bthrom, ground floor unit. All new granite and stainless appliances with new cabinets in the kitchen and both bathrooms. This beautiful unit has 2 large bathrooms, and easily fits a family with a king bed in the master and twin beds OR a king in the 2nd bdrm. Also the second bedroom and bathroom can be completely separated for privacy creating 2 king suites. Great cross breezes keep you cool plus ceiling fans in all rooms. Large partially covered lanai overlooking green grassy garden space for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade.
The kitchen has everything you need from coffee maker, blender and toaster. You can make pizza, spagetti, cookies, and lots more. Plus another smaller fridge gives you plenty of space for your extra drinks and snacks. There is also a full sized washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.
You are surrounded by lush gardens giving privacy and relaxation. A gas grill is available for your use just a few feet from the condo, and paths through our condos and the entire resort are beautifully landscaped and lit for evening walks.
There is a Beach Closet for your convenience. You are invited to use the ice chests, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrella, beach bags, and, of course, beach towels.
Eight well maintained tennis courts are here at Poipu Kai and can be reserved, for a small fee. Tennis rackets and balls are also in the Beach Closet for you to enjoy.
Beaches are a quick 5 minute walk down beautiful resort paths for snorkeling, swimming, body boarding, and surfing at Brennekes & Poipu Beach. At Poipu you'll find a children's playground and a wonderful calm and shallow children's beach (Keiki Beach). Poipu Beach is always rated as one of the world's best, and has lifeguards on duty everyday for your safety. Or you can walk 5 minutes the other direction to go surfing or just get some sun at Shipwreck Beach. Take the easy hike past Shipwreck Beach for beautiful scenery and cliffs.
If you want to play closer to the condo , the pool is a few feet from the door. The pool area has both sunny and shady areas, and is a great place to hang out. This is one of two pools you have access to. The other one is a 5 minute walk to use the Poipu Kai pool and hot tub.
And at the end of a busy day, there is cable for the large screen TV in the living room and internet that is either wired or wireless for your entertainment. Both bedrooms also have flat screen TV's so everyone can watch what they want.
Within walking distance you can go to Brennekes Beach Broiler and Brennekes Deli for sandwiches, etc, down at Poipu Beach. Kalapaki Joes is a quick walk for casual dining and to watch your favorite sporting event. And there is also The Grand Hyatt featuring 5 restaurants, and Stevenson's Library which has live music nightly or enjoy their torch lighting ceremonies and Hula nights.
Just one mile away is The Poipu Shopping Village where you can find restaurants and lots of great shops and even Starbucks. A little further you will find another shopping area with a natural food store, restaurants and exclusive shopping area. In our little historic 'Old Koloa Town' just three miles away are grocery stores, restaurants and unique shops to explore including Koloa Mill, a great little ice cream and coffee shop.
We hope you enjoy being here as much as we do.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was the best choice we made. All the appliances and furniture were recently updated. It made it easy to eat or drink whatever we wanted whenever. We didn't have to go out and get anything since we could store it at the condo. The next time we come back to Kauai we will be staying here. I highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great place to stay!

This was my first experience withVRBO and it was great. The condo was beautiful, spacious and was very comfortable, it exceeded our expectations. The condo is equipped with a great supply of beach items - chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, coolers and towels which is super convenient and a money saver. The location provided easy access to enjoy and explore the south end of the island and the information book supplied by the owner was helpful. I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends. We were not able to access the Internet but this was probably user error on our part . The only suggestion I would offer to the owner would be to add grocery location information to your book. We spent an additional 6 days in Princeville at our Wyndham timeshare and the Poipu condo was by far the superior location.

Felt like home!
Felt like home!
My family and I just returned from a ten day stay at this condo. Very comfortable, clean and well furbished. Hall closet full of ocean beach toys (boogie boards, beach chairs, ice chests, snorkel gear, big beach towel, etc). Nicely update kitchen and bathrooms. Good wifi service and TV's in every room (kids loved this after a long day of fun in the sun). The interior of any building in Kauai gets stuffy, as did this condo when returning home each day. BUT - once you open the windows and patio doors this unit is exposed to a fabulous tropical ocean breeze that cools the unit in no time at all. There are no adjacent condos behind this unit. When you sit, or look out the back patio slider, all you see is lovely island vegetation and a lawn area. Feels very private in a condo community (which is quite rare). Great location and easy/beautiful walk to the beach. Owners were very responsive to general questions. If we stay in Poipu again we will definitely reserve this condo again.

From the beginning, we fell in love with the gorgeous, clean, and spacious condo, along with it's great location in relation to pool and beach. There was everything there we could possibly need, from cooking tools and wet bar, to beach towels and toys galore!! We appreciated the care and thought put into furnishing this unit, and would love to return again with my family! Thank you again.

My husband and our two children (aged 17 and 20), enjoyed several days at this condo. Every amenity imaginable was provided, including a fully equipped up-to-date kitchen, all sorts of beach supplies, modern bathrooms and up to date appliances/electronics (iPod dock, flat screen TVs). I don't typically feel at home staying in other people's houses, but I felt entirely at home in this condo. Additionally, it offered a great locale to beaches and lovely walking paths. There's also a small pool very close by. If we return with the kids or with friends, we will certainly stay at this condo again!

This unit met all our expectations for a vacation home away from home. We did not have wi-fi the first few days of our stay so I called Hugh. He was kind enough to send a technician the soonest time possible. The owners made sure we got everything that we needed before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this unit for those looking for a quiet place to stay to relax and enjoy their vacation in Maui.

Beautiful condo! Perfect Location! Great Vacation!
Beautiful condo! Perfect Location! Great Vacation!
The condo was clean and spacious. We stayed there with 4 adults and 2 children and had plenty of room. Beds were comfortable. Fans in every room and has great air flow though the place. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed for our entire stay. Plenty of beach towels & gear. Kitchen had all the cookware and utensils to prepare daily meals. The complex was small but very well maintained. Pool was not huge but also was never busy...so plenty of loungers and room to swim. No hot tub/jacuzzi. Only one BBQ for the entire complex but only had to wait to use it 1 night out of 10. Nice walking paths from the complex to two different beaches. Even lit at night time. Overall the condo and complex was perfect for our vacation. Lita was very helpful and managed our stay perfectly. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in beautiful sunny Poipu.

This property was beautiful. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Poipu. We had 6 people in our group and plenty of room for us all to sleep. Close to the beach a in a great area. Also the owners were great very willing to help in any way. I can't wait to go back and stay there again.

We really enjoyed our holiday on the South Shore of Kauai. This unit was perfect for our family. The second bedroom was set up for our teenagers with twin beds and having a second bathroom was very helpful. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed. We walked to the beaches and used the pool around the corner from the unit daily. If we get the chance to get back to Kauai and the South Shore I will book this unit.

Wonderful stay in Fabulous condo!
Wonderful stay in Fabulous condo!
We are frequent condo renters & travel extensively. We were on a 9 week Hawaiian vacation & Makanui was one of our favorite stays. The condo is beautifully decorated & so well equipped, we did not feel like renters, rather like guests in Lita's home. She was great to work with & very accommodating. The pool was a peaceful oasis with just the right combination of sun & shade. The lanai was bright & cheery in the morning with afternoon shade. The beds were divine to sleep in & the towels plentiful & new. The extra spices, full bars of soap, dryer sheets & lots of other extras were a huge bonus. The beach was just a short walk away through beautiful paths. We highly recommend this wonderful spot in paradise. Thanks for a great stay!

About the owner: We have lived in Colorado for many years, in Illinois for 5 years, and in Brazil for six years as well. After returning to the States, we vacationed regularly in different places with our daughters. When we came to Kauai the first time, we knew we had found Paradise. The girls loved the surfing, pools, and trips to the beach. We all loved the sun, beaches, snorkeling and walking to places around Poipu Kai. When we retired in 2010 we removed the condo from the vacation rental market and moved in to it. We have thoroughly enjoyed living in Poipu Kai and walking to the eaches, tennis courts, and restaurants in the area as well as enjoying our morning coffee and afternoon snacks on our lanai. In the first year we did a major remodel with completely new kitchen and bathrooms. We spent the next year finishing the project including most of the furnishings, all new window coverings, light fixtures, and paint throughout the rest of the condo. In 2012 we moved back out of the condo, and we are allowing our condo to be rented again. We are anxious to share our little bit of Paradise with you.
