The Poipu Retreat, located at The Makahuena, is a small, quiet complex on the southernmost point of Kauai. Our condo is a ground-floor, single-level, end unit. One side of condo is almost all sliding glass doors. There is also a slider on the end. Adjusting how far these doors are open allows you to control the 'air conditioning' supplied by the trade winds. There's nothing worse than coming home to a place that is catching the late afternoon sun, after spending all day in the Hawaiian rays. You will get some morning sunlight in the unit, before it catches shade from the neighboring building for most of the day. This is truly one of the coolest condos in the complex.
The master bedroom has its own bathroom with a raindrop showerhead over the tub. The guest bath is just steps from the guest bedroom. The bedrooms are well-separated to provide plenty of privacy. The master bedroom contains a king-sized bed. The guest bedroom has two twins, but if you let us know ahead of time, it can be changed to a king, also.
We've replaced the high thread count sheets in the master bedroom with something even better! We now have bamboo sheets that are twice as soft as cotton! They're soft, cool, clean, and green! When the second bedroom is set up as a king, it also has bamboo comfort.
There are sliders to the lanai from the master bedroom and the living room. Chairs and a table are out each of these exits. A slope of lush landscaping next to the lanai has a cooling effect, in addition to aiding the privacy of your stay. Only rarely will you see anyone walk by our condo.
You have a partial view of the ocean from both lanais, but you are only steps away from watching the waves crashing on the rocks, and the turtles surfacing between forages underwater. In the winter, take the beach chairs to the grass area to watch the dolphins playing and the whales breaching. Or go here any time of the year to watch beautiful sunrises and magnificent sunsets!
We have a great view of the sea from the large pool area. Or take a relaxing dip in the jetted spa, where the view is just as good.
Since we are here ourselves for over half the year, we have stocked the condo with all the things we, or our guests, might need. All the cooking utensils, dishes, small appliances, linens, and playthings are already here. If you don't see everything you'll need on our amenities list, let us know. Maybe we'll add it before your arrival!
We always hated checking multiple bags at the airport, just to make sure we had everything we thought we might need to have a fulfilling vacation. It's much more relaxing to just bring a carryon bag with a few shirts, shorts, and swimwear. We have a full-sized washer and dryer to get you through your stay.
We'll save you a ton of money on renting stuff. We have boogie boards, sand toys, cold bags, rolling ice chest, picnic gear, a Pack and Play, snorkel gear, tennis gear, beach chairs, beach towels, a beach umbrella, and much more.
If you're a serious golfer, your own clubs probably help you play better. But with my high handicap, I could probably score as well with a stick and a rock! If you don't want to bring your own clubs, we have four sets. They aren't state of the art clubs, but they're good enough for my game. You're welcome to use them. And if my golf shoes fit, you are welcome to use them, too. We also have one pull cart.
This may be the vacation of a lifetime for you, or just another trip to Paradise. In our many visits before achieving our goal of owning a piece of Kauai, we've learned how to squeeze the most out of a nickel. The best part of coming to Kauai is enjoying God's creation. You can spend a lot to enjoy it once, or we can give you some tips on stretching your budget so you can come back more often. Let us know which type of trip you want, and we'll help you achieve it!
