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 Poipu
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.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been nicely updated and all the furniture was comfortable and well taken care of. The only drawback is that there is only AC on the bottom floor, not on the floors with the bedrooms. Even with fans on, the bedrooms, especially the loft area were very warm. If there could be a cross breeze it would help, but with being a condo windows in each room are on just one wall. We had 6 adults, and I would say the condo is better suited for 4 adults and 2 children. The upstairs loft bathroom has a kid size sink and kid size shower. Condo is in a great location with many places to eat within a 15 minute car ride, and the beach not far away. Beach chairs, boogie boards, and a cooler were there for our use. There is an excellent view of the ocean and sunsets from the balcony.
One interesting/funny note was they provide laundry detergent if you run out, but not extra toilet paper. (2 rolls per bathroom were provided, if you need more you have to buy it.)
I’m happy to say that we have AC in all the bedrooms and the main floor now! It’s a great feature to our wonderful condo. I hope you’re able to return to enjoy it. While the bathroom in the loft is small, there is a toilet and it’s convenient not to have to go downstairs.
Thanks for writing a review.
This was a great location in the south! Kids loved the pool after a day at poipu beach or checking out other local attractions such as spouting horn, suspension bridge, or glass beach. This condo was comfortable- fans were great. The kitchen amenities made it easy to prepare meals for the family. Loved the view from balcony, even saw whales! We would stay here again.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the review.
We loved our stay at this condo. We were a group of three couples, so we all got our own bedroom and bathroom. The condo was well-stocked. We had everything we needed whether we were cooking in the kitchen or spending a day at the beach. The views from the lanai were amazing! We all enjoyed watching the sunsets from out there or seeing whales and dolphins while enjoying our breakfast or morning coffee. Both the owner and property manager were quick to respond to inquiries. I would not hesitate in staying in this unit again or recommending it to my friends and family.
Thanks for writing such a nice informative review! I’m happy you had a good time.
Excellent property in an excellent location
This condo is an excellent property located a 10 minute walk from Brennecke Beach. The accommodations were comfortable with a very nice view of the water. The common areas (kitchen, living room) were spacious and well-furnished. The lower two bedrooms were large and comfortable, while the upstairs bedroom would be suitable for children.
Thanks for the 5 star review! Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Property near the beach rocks the sunsets
The property was well kept and provided basic kitchen supplies and beach accessories. The drawback was it took a drive to haul things as the beaches weren't quite as close as materials suggested. However, the location couldn't be beat for sunrise and sunset views and drive time to either side of the island.
Great view and amenities
We loved Liz's condo. The view was great. We cooked dinner a few times in the condo and made use of the BBQ on site. Liz has a couple umbrellas and beach gear which we loved. Had plenty of space for 5 adults - the loft is really a third-story room that doesn't have a door but is still separate from everyone else. Would absolutely stay again!
Happy you loved our condo. Hope you’re able to return. Thanks for the review.
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.
