About Rodney Bughao

Karen and I have been married over 30 years. We have three children and enjoy traveling whenever we can.

Rodney Bughao purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rodney Bughao chose Poipu

Kauai has always held a special place in our hearts. Having lived in Koloa in the early 1970's, Poipu Beach is like home. Kauai holds very special memories for Karen and me. Our honeymoon was on Kauai where we enjoyed hiking in the Waimea Canyon. Many of my cousins still call Kauai home. The sounds of the ocean soothes our restless souls!

What makes this condo unique

Makahuena offers beautiful ocean and garden views. You can see the sunrise and sunset from the point. We especially enjoy the peaceful mornings on the lanai. Our location takes full advantage of the cooling tradewinds and the calming sounds of the waves crashing on the point.

We really enjoyed the condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three children for our Thanksgiving break and we really enjoyed the condo. Everything was just perfect and I loved the flowers around the condo when we arrived. All of the amenities were great after spending 4 nights in a hotel room in Waikiki. We needed the space and peace and quiet. The washer/dryer, full kitchen, two bedrooms and all of the beach supplies really made our stay in Kauai one we will not forget. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and family.

Kauai Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much again for opening up your home to us. The unit was immaculate. Just enough space and the kitchen was beautiful. The only draw back was the no air conditioner but being in paradise was worth every minute.

Will be looking to stay again soon!

Better than advertised

  • 4 of 5

This place is beautiful and peaceful. The condo is spacious, comfortable for 6 people, and well laid out. Good size laundry and dryer, beach toys suitable for young children, and other beach amenities. The compound swimming pool and the hot tub provides a nice way to wind down at the end of day. The condo management was superb as well.

The only thing we felt this place was a little short on was dish washing soap, shampoo/conditioner, body wash soap, and toilet paper. Also, there is no laundry soap.

Overall, we loved it.

Wonderful Condo to Stay While on Kauai

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Poipu. We stayed in the condo for 4 nights. We used it as a base to explore the island which is absolutely stunning. And the location of the condo is second to none - walking distance to the beautiful Poipu Beach and to the wonderful shopping and restaurants in the area. The condo itself is beautiful and very welcoming. It easily accommodated my family of 5. Evelyn, the property manager, was always very responsive to my messages and the instructions for the condo were extremely clear. Everything was nice and easy. We forgot that the condo did not have AC (like most places in Kauai), but the fans and the island trade winds provided enough cooling for us. The only reason why I am giving this review 4 stars versus 5 is that the condo came with little bathroom amenities. For a family of 5 for the length of time we were there, we went through the supplied "hotel" size soap and shampoo within the first day. I would be willing to pay a little more for the rental and have more supplies, rather than have to take away from my vacation time to shop for shampoo, soap and TP. But this is just a small thing. We really had a great time and would return again (we hope we can come back soon!!) Mahalo Karen and Rodney!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review the condo. I'm sorry that you ran out of bathroom amenities. I quick email to Evelyn could have remedied the situation. I'm glad you enjoyed Kauai and the condo. Mahalo. Rodney

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. Everything was perfect and corresponded to what was announced in the add. On top of that the service provided by Evelyn, the property manager was excellent. We will surely come back for our next visit in Kaui and stay longer. 3 days were too short ;-). Thanks again.
