About Peter Ross

I am a retired Boeing Engineer; My wife is a retired College Professor. We have been coming to Poipu since 1982. Makahuena has been in our sight over most of this time as the most desirable place along Poipu shores. We were finally able to purchase this unit in 2006 and with a total upgrade has become our second home. We rent it selectively to ease the burden of ownership expenses, not as an investment property.

We hope all prospective renters will enjoy it as we do and take care of it as we do.

Peter Ross purchased this condo in 2006

Why Peter Ross chose Poipu

One of the reasons we chose to buy our unit in Makahuena is that this is a ownership facility (no RCI presence). Consequently we get to know our neighbors and we all have a very intense vested interest in the maintenance and use of our facilities. Further it is located strategically near excellent beaches and the center of activity in Poipu.

What makes this condo unique

Some of the unique benefits of our unit being on the ground floor are direct access to the swimming pool and hot tub; a sheltered garden with a view of the ocean located 300 ft from our lanai; direct access to path that leads to benches on the edge of the ocean on the back of Makahuena; and finally within 15 minute walking distance from either Poipu Beach or Ship wreck beach (behind the Grand Hyatt Regency). Most of all many wonderful friends come here, as we do, to enjoy this wonderful paradise.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Four adults spent 7 days in this condo and had a wonderful time. Loved the location in relation to the beach and shopping. Pro's: Clean 2 bed/2 bath, washer & dryer, large lanai, view of the ocean, full kitchen, community bbq grills right outside, comfortable beds, 4 electric fans (which we needed each night). Con's: Dated decor in bedrooms/livingroom, no a/c (which we could have used at night), ice maker not working, only one roll of paper towels and two tissues in the box, kitchen could use foil & plastic wrap. While this lacked many of the extra's we have experienced in past VRBO rentals overall it was a lovely place to stay.

Our family of four stayed in the condo in mid July. The condo is super clean and well maintained. There is a great kitchen, comfortable beds, and no need for air conditioning, at least for us. The patio makes a nice addition, my husband liked to take his morning coffee there. The owner is very courteous and accommodating. The location is great, close to the beach, shopping centers, and restaurants. Kids loved the pool.The grounds are taken care of. We had an excellent stay and definitely recommend this unit.

We and another couple enjoyed this 2 bedroom condo. Excellent rate and a very cozy 2 bedroom ground floor condo. Sunsets every night at the community viewing area overlooking the ocean. Met some very friendly residents also. Close to Koloa town and some good restaurants. Went golfing at Kiahuna golf course about 2 miles away. We recommend this unit. Thank You

Great Condo & Location - We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

After looking at what seemed like 50 or more rentals in the Poipu area we chose Pete and Jerry's condo and couldn't be happier! The unit is spacious with a useful layout, well equipped and we actually preferred how it is tucked back with it's own garden corner which provides a feeling of privacy on the lanai. The pool and jacuzzi add a resort-like feel. We met several of the full-time residents of the complex and enjoyed visiting with them. One even offered a surfing lesson to our son! There is an open space area adjacent to the complex with oceanfront walking and a cove with sea turtles. We stocked up on food at Costco with occasional runs to Big Save in Koloa, cooking most all meals at the condo. Thanks Pete and Jerry!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this great condo for 8 days. It's location near Poipu Beach, Poipu Shopping Center, and many other great little towns on the south coast was wonderful. The condo was airy, very clean, updated and the lanai had a sweet little view of the ocean. The kitchen has lots of nice dishes, pots and pans, glassware, etc. (No spices except s&p or food of any sort though, so bring your own stuff) The design of this condo is perfect, it seems spacious. The second bedroom/ bathroom (which we didn't use) is nicely separated so 2 couples could have their own space. The colorful wall hangings really added to the tropical feel. The décor is well done. There is a nice walking path just a few blocks from the condo that goes from The Hyatt to Poipu Beach. Also a fun farmers market on

Wednesday afternoons at the nearby shopping center and a major bargain golf course at Kukuiolono. We were VERY happy with this rental and would recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful Condo; Exactly as Pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this wonderful condo over Thanksgiving. We had such a marvelous time that we hope we can visit again soon! The condo has everything you need for your stay, and it is modern and nicely decorated. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals. There are beach mats and a small cooler in the closet, and they came in very handy for our many snorkel excursions. Poipu Beach is just a short 15 minute stroll away, and the snorkeling there is wonderful; we even snorkeled with turtles! The condo complex is small and uncrowded, and everyone was very laidback and friendly. We watched the sunrise and sunset nearly every day from the ocean viewing area. We thought that this condo has one of the best locations in the complex, and we really enjoyed the lanai. We will be returning as soon as we can; love this place!
