Our competitive SUMMER/FALL SALE rates allow you to enjoy the beauty of Kauai at a great value. See our video in "Links to more information" below. (

This spacious corner unit, with ocean views from the lanai, master bedroom and living area, was completely renovated in October, 2015. Grab your morning coffee and watch the sunrise, crashing waves and whale/dolphin from the privacy of your own lanai. Wireless WiFi is included in our rates.

Designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, the unit features contemporary Asian elegance with tasteful touches of island charm. Upgrades include all new furniture and bedding, new kitchen appliances, mirrors which reflect natural light and ocean views everywhere, windows and fans which provide great ventilation, completely re-tiled bathroom showers, new hardwood flooring and new window coverings.

The new kitchen includes Sapele Mahogany cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and all the smaller appliances you need. The fully stocked kitchen provides a comfortable setting for cooking your own meals. Grind your coffee beans, make a fresh pot of coffee and enjoy the morning view of the ocean. A starter set of coffee and Kauai Cookies are a pleasant surprise on your first morning.

Your totally remodeled master bedroom also has an ocean view, a Californian king bed and en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has 2 twins (convertible to a king) and its own private full bathroom. Both bathrooms have been renovated with new cabinets, vanities, and tile work. All new linens and towels are provided for your comfort.

We also provide beach towels and “fun in the sun" equipment such as boogie boards, beach chairs and a portable cooler. The condo has a full size washer and dryer for your use with laundry detergent provided.

A short 10 minute walk and you're at Brennecke's Beach (consistently voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the USA in the Traveller's Choice Awards). About the same distance to Shipwreck Beach for a bit more laid back experience. It is also easy to walk to local restaurants and fine dining in resorts like the Hyatt. If you love to golf, there are multiple courses nearby. If hiking is for you, the beautiful Poipu coast is right at your doorstep.

You will find that we have made every effort to provide our guests with a beautiful and comfortable living space close to all the great outdoor activities Kauai has to offer.

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.

Ron Johnson purchased this condo in 2016

Why Ron Johnson chose Poipu

The Makahuena Point is the southern most spot on the island of Kauai and is a great location from which to explore the Poipu Beach area.

What makes this condo unique

Complete renovation in October, 2015 with quality upgrades throughout the 1155 square feet. Your rental value is extremely high at this location.

Fantastic views of the sunrise and whales

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great accommodation with great location.

  • 5 of 5

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 location, beautiful views, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week with our daughter and grandson. We absolutely loved staying here, the condo was fantastically equipped with EVERYTHING we could need and very well located to the water. (Not sandy beach but beautiful rocky views. Sandy beaches very close y) The pool was amazing and the grounds well kept. They were Re roofing while we were there but it wasn’t a problem and the workers were polite. Easy parking too. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and would be happy To stay there again. The owner was great to deal with too. Aloha 🌺?

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was really nice and everything you could think you might need was there. Very well appointed. A couple of nights we lost the trade winds but the fans did an adequate job of cooling the bedroom. Our only suggestion is a new mattress in the master bedroom, it is very, very soft. We nicknamed it the marshmallow bed. Something in a middle firmness would suit more people. Overall a great place and location.

Owner's Response: Very pleased your family enjoyed our property and all of the amenities and that we could accommodate your late check out for your evening flight home. You're the first to comment on the mattress and we will look to upgrade for future guests. Thanks again for finding us and choosing to stay at MK 4205! Mahalo.
