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

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.

Another amazing time at this great unit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this unit, and as Andy says, they share their home away from home. This place is amazing. Very well kept, amazing views, and working with them was seamless and easy. They are very attentive and responsive to any needs you might have. The unit is centrally located with regards to all the activities on the island. Easy access to every place, and it is very well equipped. It truly feels like a home away from home. The building is quiet and the sound of waves in the background will lull you into your dreams. I will definitely be coming back!

Fantastic view, easy parking, great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here recently for seven nights. Overall, we had a good experience and would recommend this condo to other travelers. We searched other condos for weeks before we settled on this one, but you can't beat the view or the price! The sound of the ocean waves crashing against the rocks was a great bonus.

Prior to our arrival, we had excellent communication with Evelyn, the property manager. She was fantastic to work with and accommodated our every request. Since we were traveling with a 12-month-old, they offered to deliver a pack-n-play, high chair and baby gate ahead of our arrival. We appreciated this! It made our trip so much easier.

We read many reviews about the condo keeping cool during the day and night because of a steady breeze. Our experience was a little different: During the first three nights of our stay, we had almost zero breeze (unusual for being right on the ocean). This presented some challenges as the upstairs (4th floor of the building) was extremely warm for sleeping and the room did not cool off at night. However, the owners provided multiple portable fans (plus ceiling fans already in the bedrooms) that helped move air through our rooms. Thank you for providing these!

Although the Makahuena condo complex is older, the grounds were well maintained. The Pool area was excellent! Parking was easy, we always found a spot close to our building. The condo owners had thought of just about everything...great toys for kids, beach towels, snorkel gear (although we did not use), a beach umbrella, etc. There were TV's/DVD's in the bedrooms but we did not use them.

My only comments would be to have the downstairs floors and upstairs carpets deep-cleaned. They were showing their age and previous guests had clearly not adhered to the request to remove shoes at the door. Also, some of the doors inside the condo didn't shut easily and the door lock on the 1/2 bathroom downstairs was old and might need to be replaced.

Overall, we enjoyed our time here and would definitely recommend to other travelers who are looking for a combination of both affordability and an excellent view/location.

Views,stairs,and kids

  • 3 of 5

We liked the condo and the area of Poipu in Kauai. Being a senior couple we didn't like all the stairs. There are lots and lots of stairs.

It's a good property for a a young couple with kids. There were always lots of kids in the pool.

This property overlooks the pool which always had lots of kids.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Randy for providing feedback. I'm sorry that your stay was less enjoyable. There are days that pool is fully utilized and days with only few people in it or at times empty. We expect guests to observe the quiet hours policy and sorry it wasn't adhered to. Sincerely yours, Andy

What a great place to relax and get away

  • 5 of 5

Unit 2308 @ The Makahuena is a fantastic place to get away from the crazies of every day life... it is a place in Poi' pu where you can relax on the lani (spectacular blue water views as far as the eye can see), take a quick walk down to the beach to watch honu swim, or a stroll to Brenneke's Beach Broiler for cocktails & pupu's!

Andy & Christina have appointed the condo with comfortable furniture and all the creature comforts of home. Just stop at the grocery story on the way in from the airport in Lihue then head to Poi'pu and start relaxing. There are many great places to eat at and loads of things to do all over Kaua'i, from seeing Wiamea Canyon to the west, a great craft brew restaurant in Port Allen to fantastic beaches along the coast line to Hanalei Bay on the North shore by Princeville... Oh yeah, don't forget the malasada's (Portageese donuts that you will crave for your entire trip)... you can get a dozen to go @ Kakui' Grove Shoping center along with groceries.

Enjoy yourselves @ 2308!

Mahalo to Andy & Christina for the great accommodations!

Very nice condo on a beautiful resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to the Makahuena, and we were not disappointed. One of our favourite things to do is to start each day with breakfast on the lanai, and the view from this unit is beautiful! The condo is clean and well stocked with snorkel gear, a cooler, boogie boards, and an umbrella - the only suggestion would be to supply a couple of beach chairs. Evelyn, the property manager, was wonderful to deal with - always responding quickly to any questions we had. We are planning on returning to Kauai again, and would definitely stay in this unit again.

Mahalo Andy, Christina and Evelyn!
