About the property

Best location in Poipu! 5 minute walk to Shipwreck and Brenneckes Beaches!

This is a VERY spacious (1550+ square feet), newly renovated and decorated, ground level, 3BR/2BA ocean view condominium in the upscale Makahuena Resort located in the heart of Poipu. Poipu Beach is Kauai's most desirable area and was just rated the #1 beach in all of America. My unit is among one of the biggest condominium's you'll find in Poipu! The unit's size and internal layout provides spacious comfort for as many as 8, (additional space for small children) but can also work well and is priced perfectly for smaller groups.

My condo just underwent a 3 month renovation. Kitchen was updated with brand new cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, and high end fixtures. Brand new, custom master bathroom features cherry wood vanity with double sinks and granite counters, and a custom tile shower complete with a bench and a niche. New tile spans throughout the entire unit and it looks amazing. With freshly painted walls, each room now offers a custom feel. You won't find a nicer condo in all of Poipu - it's truly am amazing place to stay!

The condo is also professionally decorated by an island expert! We recently purchased all new upscale, high end teak furniture, 3 new mattresses with the king being memory foam, 3 new TVs, all new kitchen supplies, beach toys, art work and decorations.

With the new furniture and remodel, this unit is essentially brand new.

The floor plan is all contained on the first floor with no interior stairs. (There are a few stairs leading down into the unit). Its single level eliminates the need to climb stairs to bedrooms or bathrooms. Our seniors especially appreciate this convenience.

High speed wireless internet is available to stay connected should you chose to. Air Conditioning in the master bedroom can provide icy cool off after a full day under the sun. There are also optional Air Conditioners available for both other bedrooms for an additional $100 / week. The two twin beds in the third bedroom can be made into a king. Extra sleeping on the brand new pullout queen size couch.

All beach stuff included! Chairs, floaties, coolers, boogie boards... we have it all!

From the lanai you're only steps away from the impeccably maintained grounds, pool, spa, barbecue, view point, and other entertainment areas.

The Makahuena resort is in the center of the Poipu golf world and is walking distance from Poipu Bay (former site of the Grand Slam). The Makahuena contains it's own tennis facility and is under a 10 minute walk to two top rated sandy beaches that provide sunbathing and surfing (Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke's Beach). Brennecke's beach is a top destination for toddlers & children because of its extremely calm and shallow water. This also makes it a top destination for snorkelers.

The resort is named after Makahuena Point, which is located on the southernmost point on Kauai. The resort complex sits on a cliff and overlooks the ocean providing an unforgettable view and experience. The 'Point' is only a few steps from unit's lanai where you'll see a breathtaking view of the waves crashing into the cliffs. You’re also likely to see whales, turtles, dolphins, and the occasional Monk Seal.

*** I have a 5 night minimum when booking over 5 months in advance. Within 5 months there is no minimum.

About Michael Verna

My wife and I have been regulars to Kauai for over 10 years now. We both fell in love with the beauty of the island and have recently decided to purchase this vacation home to enjoy on our visits, and let you enjoy while we're away. This is a very special place for us, and we hope that it will bring you as much joy as it has us.

Michael Verna purchased this condo in 2015

Why Michael Verna chose Poipu

We purchased a larger unit because it's big enough to invite friends and family over to stay with us. We wanted to be as close to the ocean as possible, and walking distance to our two favorite beaches. This unit offers amazing views and an unbeatable location.

Beautiful condo exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this unit! Perfect location and everything was just as described. We are thrilled with the cleanliness, organization and “extras” that this unit offered. The owner was easy to contact and super accommodating. We would definitely recommend this unit! We stayed with 4 adults and 2 children and it was the perfect size. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Birthday weekend was a success!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! Very clean, spacious and well maintained. Just a few steps away from breathing views. Micheal was very helpful with any questions or concerns that I had prior to booking and once I checked in, everything was perfect. Would definitely recommend this property and stay here again.

Fantastic location and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days here in December. A very comfortable place, exactly as advertised.

We experienced great weather, and enjoyed watching both sunrises and sunsets out over the ocean. With whales spouting often offshore. A great area of Kauai with Brennekes beach within walking distance. Along with Waimeaa Canyon and Lihue a close drive away.

The hosts were very easy to deal with and responded promptly with questions.

Hope we can come back one day. Thank so much for having us.

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for a full week and found the condo to be a perfect home base during our trip. Having a closet stocked full of snorkeling gear and body boards was a wonderful perk and we used them often. We rented the additional air conditioners for the back bedrooms and would recommend that to all who stay here since Hawaii is quite humid! Our only complaint was the two guest bedrooms had very firm mattresses. A couple of memory foam mattress toppers could go a long way! Shipwreck and Poipu Beach are short walks from the condo and their are plenty of great coffee shops and restaurants within a few minutes drive. We would definitely stay here again when back in Kauai!
