Located on a picturesque lava bluff, our top floor condo offers privacy, cooling trade winds and panoramic ocean vistas which a camera can't begin to capture.

Crashing waves, migrating whales and sunrise/sunset views are what you'll see as you relax on the lanai or living space. Our unit is a spacious 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath with over 1100 sq. ft. of living space. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, full private bathroom and ceiling fan. There is additional square footage and sleeping space in the well appointed loft which has two twin beds. The twin beds can be converted to one king size bed upon request. An additional air mattress and twin bed mattress is also available.

The well equipped gourmet kitchen has cherry wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher and microwave, and granite counter tops.

At the adjacent beach you can swim with sea turtles and boogie board. Surfing is also close by at the Hyatt and Marriott Resorts' public beach and Shipwrecks Beach. A short ride or doable walk from the condo provides more surfing, snorkeling and wave boarding opportunities.

About Marsha Weinberg and Ernesto Michel

Owners Marsha and Ernesto are avid travelers and nature lovers. We have both lived in San Diego for many years with Marsha growing up in Minneapolis and Ernesto in Guadalajara, Mexico. We have a multi-cultural family with members from South Africa and El Salvador and have had many wonderful experiences meeting people from all over the world. We have both worked in human services and continue to learn through our children and grandchildren's growth and development. When we travel, we frequently stay in VRBO rentals and want to provide our guests with the comforts that we appreciate when traveling.

Why Marsha Weinberg and Ernesto Michel chose Poipu

Marsha lived and went to college in Oahu and one of our sons was married in Maui, which created an affinity for the islands. But, throughout the years, Kauai has been our favorite island because of its natural beauty, leisurely pace and the kindness and helpfulness of its residents. We have experienced the Aloha Spirit first hand and want to share it! We truly feel calmer and more peaceful in Kauai, able to remove ourselves from the stress of our usual daily lives. It is that experience we hope you will also enjoy as you stay in the Makahuena.

What makes this condo unique

We specifically chose Poipu because of its ideal weather; indeed the sunniest side of the island. We chose Makahuena, after scouring the island for homes, because we were awestruck by the ocean view, which stunned us the moment we walked into the living room. We were also sold on its proximity to one of the best beaches on Kauai, the casualness of the development and the kindness and friendliness of neighbors.

Aloha; what an amazing introduction to HI! Marsha’s 3 story condo was just what we were looking for. There was room to spare for our 2 ‘ohanas (families) in this homey feeling oasis with picture postcard views. The two main bedrooms each with their own bathroom were perfect for each couple to have their own space and room enough for a Pack ‘n Play too, and the loft with the twin beds was a very exciting space for the 3-year-old. A full-sized, fully loaded kitchen had us cooking in every night (there was even a blender - perfect for smoothies and baby purees). Washer-dryer access was key after a day at the beach (10-15 min walk away). Oh, and when we opted for a chill day, we were still able to take a quick dip in the pool, relax in the hot tub, and toss some fresh fish on the community grills . I would have to say my favorite part about this place though was the lanai. Friendly birds came to visit, we saw waves and whales, and we kept the sliding doors open which provided such great air flow that we didn’t even need the ceiling fans. Would I go back to HI? Yes. Would I stay at Marsha's again? In a heartbeat. Mahalo.

Clean, comfortable condo with stunning ocean view. Everything I had hoped for and more.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is close to the beach and a short drive to shops and restaurants. I really liked the 3 levels of the condo as it provides space and privacy. The kitchen is very nice. It is well stocked and it allowed us to cook wonderful meals both in the unit and using the BBQ (3 of them). The beds were super comfortable. There were plenty of towels and it was nice to have a washer and dryer. Can't say enough about this place and the wonderful time we had here. I will be recommending this property to friends and I am sure I will book it for future vacations.

The instructions and suggestions book for guests was especially helpful. We really enjoyed ordering fresh fish from Garden Isle Seafood. What a treat! Marsha and Ernesto were extremely helpful and easy to communicate with. They responded quickly to all of our questions and were sincerely concerned with the comfort and enjoyment of our stay.

A spectacular view. Gorgeous condo. And responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an outstanding stay at this beautiful condo. It couldn't have been more perfect. The condo is extraordinarily comfortable, welcoming and spotless. The kitchen was a dream. The new appliances and the remodeled cabinets had everything we needed or wanted. It was easy to cook there or just brew a cup of coffee or pour a glass of wine for a peaceful moment on the lanai to see the morning sun rise or the evening sunset. All the spacious rooms were freshly decorated. The convenience of two bedrooms with attached full baths provided plenty of space and privacy. We spent much of the time thinking how we could include our children and use the loft on our next visit. I must mention how comfortable the beds are. I'm a bit compulsive about fresh linens and towels. These exceeded my expectations! We loved working with the owners to plan our stay. They were gracious, full of information, and fully addressed all our questions. It was a bonus treat to have WiFi and television (though there was so much to do and see, they didn't get much use). We have stayed at a number of VROB's and found this to be the best!
