About Ron Johnson
On our first visit to Kauai in 2004 we fell in love with the island. We acquired a condo at Alihi Lani (VRBO 201519) and have been sharing our home in Paradise since 2005. Our 80+ 5 Star Reviews on that site speak to how we take care of our guests needs in a timely and professional manner.

Wonderful condo in Poipu
We were fortunate enough to stay in this lovely condo for 4 nights. It was the perfect size for a family of four and the kids loved having their own beds and room. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked and the unit was clean and spacious. While we were unlucky to have some rainy weather (which is unusual for this area during the time of year), we made the best of it by using the hot tub by the pool and by playing cards and games together as a family when we couldn't go out. I would highly recommend watching the sunset one night from the beach overlook just a few steps outside the condo. A little further down there is a great view of the rocks with a arched bridge over the water with the waves crashing all around. The one thing that I would make note of is that the view from the condo from one side is slightly compromised as they are getting ready to do construction on the lot next to the condo complex and they have erected some fencing along the property line obscuring the view.
Ron was easy to communicate with and we had no complaints at all. We wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay in this same unit again if we are fortunate enough to make another trip to Kauai.
Thanks for sharing your reflections on the recent time at Makahuena #4205. I'm pleased your family made the best of things is spite of the recent rains.
I would like to clarify your reference to the fence between our property and the vacant lots next door. This is an old fence that was covered by our hedge to provide privacy to our property owners. The hedge has recently been removed and the old fence is to be torn down and replaced with a new cast iron fence with greater visibility. The 10 lots next door have not been approved for sale nor is any construction currently being planned.
We loved this condo. Nice kitchen and appliances, and the living room furniture is Comfortable! Face it- it gets used since It is dark at 7 pm, so there are evening hours to read or watch tv. (Other places I have stayed skimp on the furniture making for uncomfortable evenings.)
The King bed however is very soft, so that you sink into fluff when you lie on it. Did not get a back ache so maybe it was just a top cover of some kind. The walk-in closet was great!
The views from the lanai are just beautiful, we watched whales, dolphin and turtles. Hint- take binoculars. Listening to the waves crash at night is so peaceful I hated to fall asleep!
The pool and hot tub were very nice.
The only negative I can think of is there is no way to get to the room without using some stairs.
We would definitely recommend this accommodation: nice walking path along the ocean starts right here, and the views of sunrises and sunsets are beautiful. We were also able to watch the whales and tortillas from there.
The condo itself was spacey, very clean and well maintained. It's also located just perfectly: close to several hiking routes, beautiful beaches and convenient to shops and restaurants (within 5-10 min drive).
The owners were very helpful and the customer service was excellent, so we really enjoyed our stay there.
Enjoyed our stay
My wife and I stayed in this unit for the whole month of January, 2018. We found the interior of the unit to be as advertised. It was nicely updated with modern appliances, counter tops and flooring.
The view from the lanai was uninhibited ocean view as you turned right out of the unit. The view straight ahead was less desirable as the view was limited by a property dividing chain link fence.
We did enjoy a great amount of whale watching from the lanai as the humpbacks were very active while we were there.
The only other criticism we might have, as this is a second floor unit, with two other units on the third floor. These units appeared to be short term rentals. Most of the renters were quite respectful of the fact that there were people living below them, however, in two cases these renters made a lot of noise on an ongoing basis. In one case, resulting in us having to talk them about an apparent "happy hour" that dragged on too long.
The whole Makahuena condo development is nicely located for a variety of hikes and walks and also convenient to shops and restaurants.
All in all, we had an enjoyable time in Hawaii in Unit #4205.
Great accommodation with great location.
We greatly enjoyed this accommodation and location. Everything was pristine, very well maintained and the beds (and pillows!) were very comfortable. We had everything we needed to have a special vacation. Fantastic view of the ocean from the lanai and were even able to whale watch from there. Great access to walking paths along the ocean and to view beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owners were very friendly and provided excellent customer service. We would definitely recommend this location.
Fantastic views of the sunrise and whales
Our first time in Hawaii for the holidays was awesome. The location, the views and all the amenities provided made for a perfect stay. The whales were very active off Makahuena Point and provided a lot of excitement.
The owners were easy to work with as we had to change our dates. The new hiking path along the coast to Shipwreck Beach became our regular morning walk. We are definitely coming back!
Poipu Beach is consistently one of the top 10 beach destinations in the world. This 3 mile stretch of coastline is amazing with many choices of private or hotel lodging. Endless activities for the energetic or relaxation for the soul.
