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 Poipu

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

Terrific vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five weeks in this condo at Makahuena, and loved every minute of it. The floor plan is excellent, the view from the lanai was spectacular for the ocean, whales, and magnificent sunsets. The kitchen gear was just what we needed, and we made great use of it. For places where we stayed on past Kauai vacations, I needed a chiropractor and massage after a while, because the furniture was marginal. Not so with this vacation. Five weeks, including ten rounds of golf and lots of walking, and I had no aches or pains. All the furniture was wonderfully supportive. We have zero complaints/concerns. We definitely will return to this unit.

Good property great view

  • 4 of 5

Other than issues with roofers and using a lot of the parking spaces we had a great time. At times hard to find a place to park. I feel this property is as represented on VRBO. Great views from lanai. Even got to see a triple breech of whales!

Great location with a view

  • 5 of 5

This Makahuena condo is everything advertised. Within walking distance of Poipu Beach, a short drive to Old Koloa Town, easy drive to numerous beaches, hikes and sites of interest, as well as golf.

The condo itself has a fully equipped kitchen, I like to cook in. The beds are comfortable and the views were, to say the least, outstanding. Saw many spectacular sunsets and whales from the lanai almost daily.

I would definitely recommend this property. The only caution would be: pack light. There are no elevators and plenty of stairs. I didn’t mind, but some might.

When some very minor issues arose, Evelyn, the property manager, took care of them immediately. I give her five stars, too.

Stunning view - excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has incredible views of the ocean - watched whales many times from the lanai. The condo is comfortable with nice furnishings and pretty comfortable beds. Loved the new full size washer and dryer in the unit. Really had everything we needed, and would recommend this unit to anyone.

Good location and updated condo

  • 4 of 5

Condo is in a good location. Easy to walk to beach (5 min.), to the Hyatt. Nicely furnished condo. Kitchen has all the equipment and supplies you need; pool towels, plenty of bath towels (fluffy!). Washer and dryer are new, as is the upstairs carpeting. Master bedroom's view is great: overlooks the pool and the ocean. It was nice having 2.5 baths. No a/c but plenty of floor/ceiling fans. TV's didn't work when we got there, but property manager rectified the problem the next day. Condo was very clean when we arrived. Property owners provided good communication prior to visit. Would recommend this condo!
