We had rented this owner’s home on Maui before and decided to go to Kauai this time and stay in their unit there. When you enter this beautiful unit and look out through the stacked sliders, you feel like you are on a Cruise Ship. Water everywhere as the unit sits on the very edge of Makahuena Point with the ocean straight below. They really spent some money and effort in remodeling this unit with koa wood everywhere. Everything is new and in the best of taste and quality. The Plantation look gives it a very tropical feel. It has central air, which is hard to find on Kauai, especially an Oceanfront unit, but we did not even use it, as we wanted to hear the waves crashing against the rocks. You won’t find a nicer unit or a better location.

This is by far the nicest unit we have ever stayed in Hawaii. We have been coming to Maui and Kauai for 20 years and we were taken back when we saw the view from this unit. The crashing surf was less than 15 feet away. We saw turtles, dolphins and spinner dolphins the whole time while we were there. The interior has been completely redone in the best of taste. Really liked the view of the ocean from the Master Bathroom. Nice touch! Thanks for sharing your home.

We have stayed in a few resorts on Kauai, but none have been so close to the water as this one was. We use to stay at Whalers Cove, but heard this unit had air conditioning so we thought we would give it a try. The crashing surf was amazing and the sound of the water rocked us to sleep. The unit was totally remodeled in the best of taste. Nothing spared here. Lanai was unbelievable. Air conditioning really helped a couple of days.

We stayed in this unit for 8 nights and hardly ever left, as it is so nice. The views of the crashing water on the rocks and the coastline were like something you would see in an advertisement. We ate almost every meal on the very large lanai and got some good naps listening to the sound of the ocean right off our lanai. Interior was remodeled and very nicely done. The see through from the master bath to the ocean was special and really different. Loved the air conditioning as it was a little warm while we were there.

We have gone to Maui for several years and decided to try Kauai for this trip. The Island is lush and more beautiful than Maui. We stayed in a condo in the Makahuena development. It was the nicest place we have ever stayed in with very nice furnishings and attention to detail everywhere. It felt very Hawaiian. The view was the highlight as the unit sits right on the Ocean. We could hear the crashing surf in every room along with great sunsets. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great Place......but

  • 4 of 5

This was by far the best view on the island. We had heavy surf crashing on the lava coast the entire week. The unit was nicely furnished and very comfortable with the exception of the second bedroom. There is no air conditioning in this room for some reason. The rest of the unit has air and with the high humidity, by leaving the lanai sliders open, the temps would make it uncomfortable to sleep.

During our week's stay at this unit, we knew going in that the complex was going to get new roofing. This roofing project was supposed to start on September 18th and begin with our unit. We didn't think it would be too big of a problem dealing with the construction noise but when we arrived on October 11th (almost a full month after the project was to start), they were just getting a good start on the roof at our unit. One night we had a pretty good rain and spent a couple hours moving furniture and setting pots and pans around the unit to catch the rainwater coming through the roof. The condo management company did what they could but they didn't have any control over the roofing contractors. Made our stay a bit less than perfect. I would say that if air was ducted into the 2nd bedroom and they get the roofing done, I would definitely give it 5 full stars. Oh ya, with the roofing project going on, they occupied several of the limited parking spaces in the lot. We did find a spot each day but it sure made it tight.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review of our property. We were a little surprised to hear you listed the issues with the roofing project as a negative to the unit and one of the reason you gave it a “4” instead of a “5” rating. As you say, the project was delayed and out of our control. You were called by our management company before your arrival and were offered to either be moved to another unit or to receive a 20% discount. You chose the 20% discount. The discount was given to you to compensate for any discomfort since you chose not to be moved. Most units on the South Shore do not have air conditioning and because of their construction constraints, never will. We went to great effort and expense to install 2 very large central separate units with 2 condensers to cover an 1800 square foot unit.
