About Andy Mosko

Chris and I grew up in Southern California. We learned to love the ocean and the sunshine. We have subsequently lived in several states but fell in love with Kauai after our first visit in 1972.

Andy Mosko purchased this condo in 2014

Why Andy Mosko chose South Shore

We purchased the Makahuena condominium in 2001 after visiting many beautiful properties in the Poipu/Koloa community.

What makes this condo unique

The inspiring moment came when we saw the spectacular ocean view from our living room and lanai. The sunsets and sunrises are special memories we have shared together. Our family and friends always look forward to staying with us in Kauai. Our grandchildren love the beaches and swimming pool nearby. Peace and comfort always greet and remain us during our stays. We extend these feelings of Aloha to our guests. Kauai is our Aloha. Andy and Chris Mosko

Accommodates 4 comfortably, 6 was a stretch

  • 3 of 5

This condo was clean and well-equipped. Our main issue, which would prevent us from booking again, is that the condo doesn't really accommodate 6 comfortably. Aside from the 1 queen and 2 twin beds, which worked for my wife, myself, and 2 small children, the "futons" provided are the tiny, folding variety - 4-6" of soft foam to be placed on the floor - suitable for small kids or maybe adults looking for a camping experience. There is a sofa bed, but we arrived to find signs on it saying not to use it - it's broken.

Evelyn, the property manager, was very responsive and offered to deliver a rollaway bed, but none were available, so she brought a Coleman cot instead. We made that work for our nearly 6' tall 15 year-old, and put the 3 smaller kids in the bedroom, but it was not ideal.

Evelyn also let us check in and out at 1pm, since the condo wasn't booked at either end of our stay, which we appreciated.

While the condo has been updated, the property shows its age. It's generally well maintained, but the hot tub was out of order for our entire 8-day stay. Bummer!

Also, there's a major construction project on the lot next door. Not a big deal, but should be disclosed ahead of time, along with the broken sofa bed. And the hot tub if that doesn't get repaired soon...

The condo is a great location, especially if you're seeking reliably sunny weather in the winter, and this condo would be ideal for a couple with no more than 2 kids.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lawrence, Thank you for sharing your experience. I appreciate your valuable input and will certainly look into getting sofa bed replaced. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience during your stay. Jacuzzi has now been repaired. I'm truly sorry that it took a while to get the parts in. Sincerely yours, Evelyn

It was a great place to stay with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. They even let us have a late checkout since our flight was only at night. I highly recommend this place.

Family Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Makahuena was even better than we expected! The listing description and photos were very accurate, even though they didn't show how outstanding the view was in person! The sunsets, sounds of waves crashing, and pool/beach views were exceptional! The two bedrooms, both with their own bathrooms, helped make our family vacation run smoothly, easy, and relaxing. We had requested a pack and play, as well as a highchair, and both were all ready when we arrived. The furnishings and decor were well maintained and the kitchen supplies were well stocked, making our in house meals very convenient (although the close-by malls and restaurants enticed us out a few nights)! We appreciated the closet full of beach gear and toys. Near-by trails to walk up and down the coast were most enjoyable and we golfed at Poipu Kiahuna Course almost every morning! The close proximity of the pool was perfect for our granddaughter. We also spent time at the beaches which were great for swimming and cooling off. We love Kauai, Poipu area and Makahuena!!! Thank you for making our vacation a special memory!!

Nice condo, no a/c.

  • 4 of 5

Overall had a nice stay, but had issues with air flow/cooling the mater bedroom. Bed was just ok. Patio overlooking the pool was beautiful & the public beach is about a 5-10 minute walk.

Maintenance was very prompt on issue we brought up.

This condo exceeded our expectations! It was perfect for our family of 4 - our two son's (17 &13) had their own space & the master bedroom was spacious and comfortable for us. It was comfy and felt like our home away from home. We ran on the path behind the complex to Shipwreck's - beautiful views and landscape. It was very close to Poi'pu beach - where we spent most of our time snorkeling and surfing. Evelyn and her team were great to work with & so responsive! Mahalo!
