About the property

The Makahuena resort, situated on lava cliffs, is right on the ocean. You'll enjoy captivating ocean views from this spacious 3 bedroom condo, where you can relax with spectacular sunsets on the lanai.

Our condo has three floors and it's on the top level so you won’t be disturbed by neighbors above. On the main floor is the updated kitchen, living/dining room, a half bath/laundry room and oceanview lanai. Also on this floor is a 50inch Smart TV, free WiFi, and Bluetooth speakers.

There is air-conditioning on this floor for an additional $25/day.

On the second floor, the master bedroom has a California King bed and a 40 inch flatscreen TV. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and the third floor has two twins. All the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, fans, TVs, and en suite bathrooms.

The clifftop complex is designed for fun and relaxation with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, & tennis court. The barbeque area has 3 grills and the grounds are studded with tropical flowers.

Close to the condo is a wide variety of shopping and dining experiences. Two of our favorites are Kukui'ula Village and Old Koloa Town.

Nearby there are many beaches to explore. Walk east to the world-class Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach, west will take you to Poipu Beach. Snorkel with turtles and parrotfish, ride the waves, or just hang out at a gorgeous beach. Have fun!

About Liz Waybright

After travelling many years to the Hawaiian Islands, we chose Kauai to be our vacation home.

Liz Waybright purchased this condo in 2004

Why Liz Waybright chose South Shore

The Makahuena is in Poipu, the best place for sun and fun. The location on the cliffs, so close to the blue Pacific, is a beautiful and dramatic setting.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ocean views from our condo.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Jan 7-14/2015--what a glorious week, weather was the best. The condo was perfect for us, everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped and very nicely updated. The bed was very comfy and with the ocean in the background, it lulled me to sleep every night. Now the view, my most important feature when selecting a condo, it was magnificent. I came with high expectations, having waited for almost 11 months to get here, and I was not disappointed, we saw whales, turtles and dolphins from the lanai, beaches and even Brennecke's while having dinner. We also loved getting up every morning to watch the sunrise, it was truly amazing. The evening sunsets were also gorgeous and I recorded every one of them. I could have stayed forever. We will return some day and I will keep this condo high on my list. It was that perfect. Mahalo Liz, for allowing us into your home in paradise.

The condo's location is great! Close to Poipu and within walking distance to Shipwreck Beach too! Loved the convenience (and the cookies!) at Brenecke's.

Condo pool and hot tub also great! Loved the view of the ocean from the unit and walking down to watch the morning sunrise! Ahhhhhh Aloha!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our six days at this condo. It has several steps down, then up, to get to the door, but once it, it is roomy and comfortable. AC is available, but certainly wasn't needed when we visited across Christmas. The views from the balcony are amazing, especially recommend getting up early and going out to the point (only 100 feet away) and see the sunrise. There are gas BBQs available, the pool wasn't crowded, and there is ample parking. The master and second bedroom are on the second floor, and third bedroom is really just a loft, but it is private. You can walk to shipwreck beach by following a walking trail along the coastline....definitely a must see. Shopping is convenient, and we stopped at a nearby farmer's market for fresh fruit and vegetables. Well worth the price. --Mark--

Wonderful 4 days in Kauai

  • 4 of 5

First, Liz is very responsive and accommodating. She was a pleasure to work with when setting up our rental. We thought the condo was in a good location that was convenient to the airport and sightseeing spots. The condo itself is clean and is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation and relax. The full kitchen allowed us to cook meals and store groceries. We also took advantage of the washer/dryer to do some laundry. Great views from the patio and living room overlooking the ocean. The condo feels very secure and we met some very nice neighbors during our stay. Most nights it would eventually cool off but the 2nd and 3rd floors were very warm when going to bed even with the windows and fans. There is a split system a/c in the common living area but a window unit or split system upstairs would be a nice addition. We would def stay here again. Thank you Liz for your hospitality

Car: recommended

Sunny Poipu, on the south shore, has so much to do, from snorkeling and hiking to shopping and dining.

There's restaurants for everyone's tastes, from gourmet to low-key fun places. We love The Beach House, Tortilla Factory, or getting a plate lunch and having a picnic on the beach.
