About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 comfortably)

The Makahuena condominium resort is a small, friendly complex located right at Poipu Point, Kauai's southernmost point. It is one of the few places in Kauai where you are able to view both sunrise and sunset. Our two-floor, two-bedroom and two-and-a-half-bath condominium is furnished with all the comforts of home and has an unobstructed ocean view. In 2013 we replaced all beds and mattresses with up-market beds, and we now offer Wifi access free of charge. The kitchen was comprehensively renovated in 2014.

The condo sleeps four guests comfortably. For additional guests, there is an air mattress and a playpen/bed for babies.

You are able to walk to some of the best beaches in Kauai, with snorkeling, surfing, and fishing only a few minutes away. The unit is located in a quiet building of the resort away from parking and noise. The shady afternoon location of the balcony and master bedroom areas, and the south shore tradewinds will keep you comfortable and relaxed. The resort amenities include a lighted tennis court, a covered BBQ area, and a large swimming pool with a jacuzzi.

The Makahuena resort is meticulously maintained with tropical plants, bananas and plumerias at your fingertips. All activities are within a short walk or drive, including shopping, golf and rental car pick up. Mahalo for inquiring about our site.

Please note: There is currently construction activity on the adjacent lot. We invite you to contact us for more information if you have any concerns about the level of activity next door, or the impact on the view. The ocean view is in no way impaired.

About The Owner

We are Marilyn and Peter Muth. We own this condominium jointly with our son Eric and his wife. It was the Maine winter that made us look for a warm holiday destination. The rest is history: We fell in love with Kauai, with its unique sights, magical natural beauty and the spectacular cliffs at Makahuena. We saw whales from the cliffs almost every day, and sea turtles as we strolled along the shore. When the opportunity presented itself, we bought the unit at Makahuena. We invite you to experience 'Paradise Island' as guests in our condominium.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose South Shore

We bought this particular condominium because: (1) it is on the top floor, and we enjoy a view of the ocean and the beautiful Kauai mountains that is above the shrubs and trees that partially obstruct the view from lower-floor condos; (2) it is in the only Makahuena building that gets the full effect of the trade winds and does not need air conditioning; (3) after about 10:30 AM the sun is behind the roof, and our condo, including the lanai, is in the shade - making that afternoon drink on the lanai especially pleasant; and (4) the condo is far enough from the pool and the parking lot to insulate it from all noise from those locations.

What makes this condo unique

It was the view from the lanai and the spectacular breakfast sunrises that made us fall in love with our condo, and the love affair has never stopped.

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is wonderful and you cannot beat the location. You can hear the ocean waves as you relax on the lanai. The condo is very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this condo to family and friends.

A wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. The 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths created a wonderful space for us to come back to relax It was very clean and had all the comforts of home. The views of the ocean and mountains from the lanai were gorgeous! The proximity to both shipwreck and poipu beaches as well as restaurants and shopping was great. While it was close enough to drive or walk to things, it was also far enough away to create a peaceful setting. We would walk/run in the morning to the Hyatt or Poipu beach which were both only about 1/2 mile away. The beach chairs, cooler and towels were an added bonus for our beach days. Thank you Muth family for providing such a wonderful condo unit.

A magnificent location on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more with what this condo provided us. We had all of the comforts of home, and plenty of room for us and our two young adult children to spread out. The condo is not on the beach, but it is about a half mile walk in either direction to get to either Shipwreck or Poipu beach. The surf was quite rough, but Poipu Beach was sheltered enough to allow for easy swimming and snorkeling.

We spent a week on Maui before coming here, and found this to be very different. The snorkeling was easier on Maui but we were still able to enjoy it at Poipu beach. We even saw Sea Turtles and Monk seals on the beach there.. We spent more time on Kauai hiking and exploring the beauty of the island. Everything is so green and it seems like every plant has the most beautiful flowers. There were beautiful walking paths right from the condo, but we also went to Waimea Canyon and the North side of the island too.

The condo was immaculately clean and had everything provided we could want. It was nice to have the cooler to bring with us for our day trips. The Muth's were so easy to deal with and did everything they could think of to help us plan our trip and make everything easy. We were very happy with our choice to stay here.

Steve and Suzanne.

Beyond description!!

  • 5 of 5

Words are not sufficient to describe our experience in Kauai for our 50th anniversary. I was searching for a condo when I found the Muth's. It had everything I was looking for: availability, price, near the beach, hear the waves and see the sunrise/sunset. We got all this just sitting on the lanai. Hearing the waves crash against the cliffs just blew me away. I used up all the memory in my cellphone because of all the never-ending pictures I just had to take. The condo itself couldn't have been better. It was exceptionally clean and well furnished, even with little extras. I had to go find one of the books they provided because it had the most beautiful pictures and descriptions of Kauai that we would not get to see. After a long day of activity, the comfortable beds were a welcome relief. Having Doug meet us on our arrival was a blessing. He helped us choose all the attractions we wanted to see and do: a luau, waterfalls, a helicopter ride, dinner cruise. I even rode a horse on the beach while my husband played golf. After 50 years, it's OK to do your own thing:) The waterfalls are so, so beautiful, especially when you can see a rainbow. The one from Fantasy Island was my favorite. Unfortunately, we missed out on the dinner cruise because of unexpected rain:( You must plan to take it, but try to plan for the arrival of the humpback whales. Our favorite restaurant was "Duke's" and Hunter was the best server you could ask for. The food was mouth-watering and the Hula Cake was something you'll write home about. It's not a one-person dessert though, so save room.

Working with Peter for all the arrangements was so easy. It was like talking to a friend you had known for a long time. The fact that we have friends asking for information on his condo speaks for itself. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MY FRIEND, FOR MAKING OUR ANNIVERSARY ONE WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!!!! Oh, one more thing. Watch our for the chickens.LOL "Aloha"

Whale and dolphin watching from lanai (season dependent), endless beautiful hiking trails along the cliffs, excellent golf facilities and nice beaches minutes away.
