About Chris and Sarah

We are new owners and feel so lucky to own a small slice of paradise. We have been visiting Hawaii for over 10 years and have found Poipu our favorite spot.

Chris and Sarah purchased this condo in 2015

Why Chris and Sarah chose South Shore

We find the Poipu Kai association one of the most beautiful resorts with over 80 acres. It is located between the Hyatt's Shipwreck Breach to the east and Poipu State Park and Brennecke's Beach to the west. All within walking distances of 600 steps or so.

What makes this condo unique

As new owners we have made many new updates. These include a new sofa, stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, small appliances, beach chairs, beach and bath towels, linens, and most of the kitchen plates, glass and dish ware.

Makanui condo feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 12 days stay at Makanui. Centre location makes travelling west and north of Kauai so convenient. Also 3 beautiful beaches within minutes and great shopping villages. We had everything we needed to cook meals and have our own privacy. The pool is right ourptside the front door and we used it as much as possible. Our son loves being able to walk around playing with his toys as if he was home. We think he slept better than he does at home from all the adventures. We are impressed with the location and we will consider coming back here again. Chris and Sarah were very responsive and made sure we had what we needed when we asked. They made renting VRBO so easy. Thanks again Chris and Sarah.

Great place with nice and flexible owners!

  • 5 of 5

This place was clean, spacious and everything we could've asked for as part of our honeymoon in Kauai. The location is great - close to restaurants coffee, shops and having the pool outside of your doorstep was very convenient. Not close enough to a beach to walk to but Wasn't what we were looking for as we had a rental to drive to beaches that fit our interests. Thoughtful hosts and loved the tommy bahama chairs, beach towels, free laundry (with detergent etc), cooler, boogie boards, etc. that we could use!!

A beautifully beachy, bright and airy condo, 20 steps from a practically private pool.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5 days in this condo in the gorgeous Poipu area. Not only was the condo lovely and clean, but it had absolutely everything we could need down to the little details. So nice to have a fully stocked kitchen, from a blender for our nightly pina coladas, to little things like chip clips and zip lock bags. We thought this was great! We also enjoyed the use of big plush beach towels, beach chairs and coolers. We loved the view of the beautiful and quiet pool from our kitchen, which we enjoyed coming home to every evening after a full day of exploring. We loved snorkeling at Poipu Beach and zip lining over the breathtaking forest canopies with Koloa zip lining. I also enjoyed opening the sliding glass doors to the lanai to let the outside in, and using the open space in front of them to do a little yoga in the mornings. I will admit that at first we were surprised to see the road a little closer to the lanai than expected (it's across a small lawn and some bushes), but we quickly realized that it really wasn't a big deal as it is a quiet road. We really felt at home here and would love to come back.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The short: We had a great stay at the condo, and look forward to staying here again. We would recommend this condo to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay in Po'ipu.

We were able to compare and contrast this to our timeshare. We stayed 5 nights at the timeshare in Princeville and 6 nights here. Overall, we enjoyed this condo more than the 1 bed 2 bath timeshare with the ocean view!


Very clean, comfortable, and well furnished.

Washer and dryer on premise was very useful.

Well stocked 'pantry' (cupboard) -- so nice to have oils and spices left behind by previous people. Thank you!!!

Well stocked kitchen works great for cooking in.

The big pool is a short walk to the beach and Brennecke's.

Spacious layout.

Spacious grass area right off lanai was great for our 1 and 3 year old boys to run around on

Bag of beach gear was also helpful. Our boys used the sand toys every day.

Very close to everything Po'ipu has to offer.


Only possible con was that the condo has the glass shutter style windows that are very popular in Hawaii -- including in the bathrooms. Even when closed, sound comes through very easily. During our stay, there were workers right outside the bathrooms, and it felt like we were 'sitting in' on their conversations. Not a big enough deal to prevent us from staying here again, and I'm sure this is not a unique problem to this condo as you see these windows everywhere.
