Aloha & welcome to Makanui @ Poipu Kai resort. This wonderfully appointed 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom ground floor condo features an upgraded kitchen and bathrooms with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and beautiful wood cabinetry.
The master bedroom offers a king-size bed, a private large bathroom, 46' flat screen tv and its own lanai. The guest bedroom provides a king-size bed that can be re-configured as 2 twin beds. It has its own 36' flat screen tv and an adjoining bathroom. The second bedroom and bathroom can be completely separated for privacy, creating 2 king suites. We can accommodate up to a total of 4 guests aged 13 years or older and 2 younger children.
A great breeze circulates throughout this spacious unit to keep it cool and cozy during your stay. Enjoy your favorite beverage & your latest thriller novel while sitting outside the wrap-around lanai; or simply relax, bask in the sun amid the peaceful garden and take in the garden/mountain view.
The kitchen is fully equipped, including a coffee maker, blender and toaster. You can make pizza, spaghetti, bake cookies, and lots more. Plus a 2nd bar fridge offers you plenty of space for your drinks and snacks. There is also a full-sized washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.
Inside the condo, we have a beach closet that stows ice chests, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, tennis rackets, balls, umbrella, beach bags, and, of course, beach towels. Feel free to use any of them - we simply want to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible.
The Poipu Kai resort is surrounded by lush gardens, offering peace and privacy. A gas grill is available for your use just a few steps from the condo. The tropical walking paths throughout the resort are beautifully landscaped and lit for romantic evening strolls.
If you like to play tennis, Poipu Kai has 8 full tennis courts that you can reserve for a small fee. For the golfers, Poipu Bay Golf (home of the PGA Grand Slam from 1994-2006) is less than a mile from our doorstep.
The beaches are less than a 5-minute walk. Activities such as snorkeling, open-water swimming, body-surfing, kayaking, and surfing are offered at Brennecke's, Shipwrecks and Poipu Beach. Poipu Beach has a children's playground and a wonderful, calm and shallow beach suitable for younger children (Keiki Beach). Poipu Beach is rated as one of the world's best, and has lifeguards on duty everyday for your safety. Hike past Shipwrecks beach for beautiful scenery at the cliffs.
As residents of Makanui, you have access to 2 pools. The Makanui pool is right outside our front door. The pool area has both sunny and shady areas, and is a great place to hang out. The Poipu Kai resort pool and hot tub is also available for you to use.
And at the end of your fun-filled day, simply sit back, put your feet up and relax in our comfortable furnishings. Watch your favorite US shows on the flat screen TVs or surf the internet at no-cost.
Within walking distance you can dine at Brennecke's Beach Broiler, Kalapaki Joe's (sports bar) or grab a quick bite from Brennecke's deli. The Grand Hyatt houses 5 restaurants & Stevenson's Library offers live music nightly or enjoy their torch lighting ceremonies and hula nights.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Kauai.

About Raff & Jessica Ripoll
Jessica & I have been married for more than 24 years. I moved from Sydney, Australia to the US to marry Jessica. We now live in Long Beach, California with our two boys, Jordan and Jonah. Since we have family that lives all around the world, we travel often to other countries with our boys. Hawaii is, of course, a great mid-point between our home in Long Beach, California and visits to Sydney. The Ripolls will stay in this condo a great deal each year, so we will furnish and maintain it with many extra amenities.

Why Raff & Jessica Ripoll chose Poipu
We have traveled to many island destinations and vacation hot-spots around the world but as soon as we stepped foot onto the Island of Kauai...WE FELL IN LOVE! We are thrilled to now have our own little slice of paradise and happy to be able to share it with you. We are sure that you will also love it here and enjoy your time around the island and in our very comfortable condo!
What makes this Condo unique
Other than all of the amenities outlined in our listing, I would say our favorite thing about the property is the wrap-around lanai, with sliders from the living room and the master bedroom…it is large and can accommodate quite a few friends for a cocktail! Having a completely remodeled kitchen and both bathrooms is also something you will not find in many other condos at Poipu Kai. Finally, after a gorgeous day at the beach, and maybe a dip in the pool…we love where the condo is located as you get the benefit of the “semi private” grass area below the lanai, where our boys have spent hours kicking around the soccer ball or playing tag with friends.

Best rental we’ve ever stayed in!
Perfect location and comfortable accommodations. If we ever make it back to Kauai, I would definitely rent here again!
Amazing! They place is in excellent condition and the owners are very friendly.
The owners had plenty of supplies that could be used for the beach and welcoming goodies. They created a nice collection of information for nice places to check out nearby. Very professional.
Felt like home the moment we walked in the door. Relaxed atmosphere, beautiful flowers and the sound of the trees at night were relaxing. Nice short walk to the beach. Enough room for a family of 5. Would definitely stay here again!
Very pleased with the location and the unit for our family vacation. Communication with the owner was easy and quick. We made good use of the included beach equipment but not the pools. Although a small consideration perhaps, we appreciated renting a place that has consumables like spices, oil, detergents that you need only once or twice on your trip.
This ground floor condo is spacious and the kitchen well equipped and this is coming from 4 great cooks who stayed there. The beds were comfy and each bedroom had a spacious bathroom. The location is handy to the beach, hiking trails, markets and restaurants. Although we had a car to visit the sites on the south shore, we walked pretty much everywhere. . I highly recommend this unit. Thanks
It was a very nice place!
Great place! Very clean! The beds were comfortable and it was great having a washer and dryer! Pool area is also nice! They provide beach towels, beach chairs & coolers, along with many other beach toys. You do need to bring your own soap & shampoo. We would definitely recommend this condo. They have new furniture in the living room since there picture online. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach, but we drove, just because we hauled a lot with us.
