Makahuena condo description

Best Oceanfront (180 degree unobstructed views), Largest (2,400 square feet), Most Luxurious (Tommy Bahama, Ralph Lauren) condo in Poipu. Sits directly over the water. Thrill to the sensation of crashing waves as viewed from your private 450 foot wrap-around lanai, or through your 17 foot high windows. Expansive use of old Koa wood throughout. 500 thread count luxury linens and matching super-soft and cozy towels and all appointments. All rooms except bathrooms have a direct ocean view. 3 HDTV Flat panel TVs (up to 42 inches), original artwork, high speed Internet access. Totally private individual entrance. Virtually private oceanfront below you means you can lounge in your robe or swim suit on the lanai and relax in comfort and privacy. Equidistant between the Kauai Grand Hyatt and the Sheraton Kauai, but much closer to the water. About a ten minute walk along the ocean to the beach, and near Baby Beach and Brenneckes. Lighted tennis court, hot tub, large pool directly outside. Kauai TAT # WO4466222-01

                      This unit is directly located on the Ocean-front on the southern-most point of Poipu Beach, close enough to the ocean to drop a pebble into the water from your lanai. Most units in the surrounding area have no view, or they are distant or severely obstructed. Conversely, this unit is directly on unobstructed waterfront which is extremely rare & precious. Directly facing the south towards the Pacific there is exclusively ocean view. You will see giant sea turtles and whale pods in close proximity. Looking right, (West) is Baby Beach, one of the finest, and certainly the safest swimming beach for children anywhere in Kauai. This is also where you will see magnificent sunsets. Looking left is the beach crescent towards the Kauai Hyatt. You will see overwhelmingly beautiful sunrises. All around is the spray of the ocean, met by thunderous applause emulated by the breaking waves. As the sun goes down, the water turns a glistening silver and at night, waves entreat you to sleep.

                      Other Activities: Watch the waves crash and feel the sea spray. See the whales and Turtles

                      Golf: Located directly between both of Poipu's great golf resorts.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We love to travel and explore the world. We take our children and go as far as we can to experience as much of the world as possible.

                      Why the Owner Chose Makahuena:
                      We bought this property because it was as close to the ocean as we could get. We wanted to see all of the beauty that Kauai has to offer without ever leaving home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      LuxuryPoipu has the most stunning view of the ocean that we've ever seen. We love to sit on the lanai for hours watching the honu (turtles) swim, and search for dolphins and whales when in season.
