About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Hale Ehu Kai (Sea Spray House).

Imagine sitting on your lanai, overhanging the lava cliffs of the southernmost point of Kauai where you can see the sunrise and the sunset in the same day! There is nothing between you and the whales except the shades of blue of the Pacific Ocean.

Extraordinary in every way from its soaring ceilings to its oceanfront expanses of glass. This luxurious condo was just renovated to include a new gourmet kitchen with quartz counter tops and every amenity needed for a special meal at home. The master bedroom is oceanfront with views to die for when you awake in the morning. The furniture is new, the mattresses are new, the kitchen is new, the flooring is new and all the luxurious linens are also new, so you will feel pampered from the moment you walk in.

Our condo is located in sunny Poipu with access to the famous beaches near by. You are just minutes from the finest restaurants on the island. There is a reason that USA Today named the Makahuena Resort as one of the ten most romantic places to stay in the world....... This is stunning. When you walk through the double entry doors into the living room, your jaw will drop!

Enjoy all the conveniences of being at home. The gourmet kitchen has everything you would ever need to create an island feast. There’s an inside dining area that seats up to 6, but you will probably find yourselves outside on the incredible lanai most of the time taking in the unforgettable views!!

If you love the water and the wild beauty of the ocean, there is no other place to stay than Hale Ehu Kai (Sea Spray House).

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful island and this was a perfect spot to enjoy it from. The views from the lanai were incredible, and we loved the sea turtles swimming in the surf. The condo was comfortable and the location made it easy to get to beaches as well as explore the island. Could not beat the sunsets from the point. We cannot wait to return.

Amazing view and location

  • 5 of 5

Well it's a million dollar view. The unit is comfortable and reasonably appointed. Maybe not the most up-dated unit ever but comfortable with a remarkable view and proximity to all things Poipu and Koloa. We watched whales go by about 1/4 mile away, a small pod of dolphins playing out front and frequent sea turtles puttering around in the water below. Just perfect!

Lovely Oceanfront condo at Makahuena Poipu

  • 5 of 5

As we opened the front doors to the unit we were greeted by the waves crashing onto the rocks below us. It is truly an oceanfront condo..all you see is SEA ! We spent hours on the balcony when we weren’t dashing around the island watching the huge turtles and checking out the whales in the distance. The condo itself is very large with a well stocked kitchen. Check out what is in the pantry before you shop…there is a little bit of everything there! The bedrooms are very spacious and the living/ dining room is open so very airy feel. We met many lovely people at the pool. The Makuhuena has a community feel to it and everyone we met were extremely friendly.

We truly fell in love with Kauai and all the island has to offer. We did a doors off helicopter tour, rented bikes in Kapaa and rode along the coast, visited the North shore and Princeville and the beautiful beaches and spent time at Waimea Canyon. There is snorkelling equipment in the condo which worked really well when we were at beaches that had lots of fish present.

We cannot wait to get back to Kauai and hope to stay at Chad’s condo again. He is wonderful to deal with !

Great location, awesome views and complete privacy.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location. The crashing waves and surfing turtles are right below your balcony. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need from a complete kitchen (with lots of food actually - I would check and see what is in the cupboards before going shopping next time!) to snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, chairs and many boogie boards. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The fans and ocean breeze made it comfortable even when it was hot outside in the sun. We used the pool one evening too - it was clean and the temp was perfect to cool off before dinner. Our girls loved that it had a true "deep end".

The location is in perfect proximity to Poipu Beach and Brennecke's - we walked over there a couple of times instead of driving the 1/2 mile. It is also just minutes from Shipwrecks Beach and Koloa where we went every day to the fish market for fresh Poke. We really enjoyed how low key all of these beaches were. One day we drove to Hanalei and while it was beautiful it was insane with people and traffic rushing to the North Shore for the big waves. It made us glad we decided to stay in Poipu and could just visit the other areas. Everything was close enough that even a day trip to Hanalei and Waimea Canyon allowed us to still hit the beach when we got back in the afternoon.

Kauai at its Finest!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located in one of the most beautiful locations that the island has to offer. From the moment you open the door, you can see and hear the waves crashing against the rugged shoreline right outside your balcony! The vaulted ceilings offer an open atmosphere and allow more lighting and ocean breezes to fill the air of the condo. The balcony is the perfect setting to watch the both sunrises and sunsets as well as ocean views with dolphins, turtles and whales! You can enjoy all these sights while relaxing on the privacy of your balcony. The hot tub and pool are a short walk from your front door and is also a nice, private setting. Hiking and walking paths are right off the parking lot of the condo building and you can explore the shoreline all the way down to the Hyatt and Shipwreck Rock. We are repeat visitors to this condo and it is one of our favorite places in the World! ALOHA

Beautiful Condo - Ocean lovers delight!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk into this condo you are welcomed by the most beautiful view of the ocean. Crashing waves, turtles and dolphins are all there to welcome you. From the Lanai you will see gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need for a beach vacation, along with a fully stocked kitchen. There are two TV's but we never turned one on!!!!! We figured we had the ocean to entertain us! This was our first stay on the South side and it was great. Started every morning with a cup of Kauai coffee on the lanai watching the sun come up and every evening on the lanai watching the sun go down and several hours in between relaxing watching the waves crashing on the rocks right in front. Free phone service to the mainland was a real plus as we needed to connect with some clients at work and cell phone service is not always clear. This condo truly was everything and more we had expected. Chad is very easy to communicate with--was always quick to reply with any questions I had while booking this unit. Would highly recommend this condo. Loved it!

Daily turtle sightings, great sunset opportunities, crashing waves that shake the unit! Chad is so great to work with too - very responsive!
