  • Kauai- Makahuena Property 58638

    "We (family of 4) stayed at the Makahuena, Poipu condo for 7 days. We enjoyed the stay and the property greatly. Everything was in order when we arrived and Lea met us and showed us around and gave us information on beaches and eating places close to the condo. She was very helpful. The beds are very comfortable. No A/C but not needed- a very nice breeze at night makes it comfortable. The condo is on the third floor, which makes it nice for the great view of the ocean. Coffee on the porch is great. The condo is stocked with everything you might need- first aid kit, snorkling gear, boogie boards, towels, pots/pans, dishes, cutlery, zip locks, spices, cable TV, internet- everything. The grounds are very well maintained. The pool is cleaned every morning and the landscaping is manicured. We did not see any bugs or other critters. We felt "at home" here immediately. Kauai is such a beautiful island. We would like to return every year to this condo. No complaints to report!"

  • Great location, awesome views and complete privacy.

    "What a beautiful location. The crashing waves and surfing turtles are right below your balcony. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need from a complete kitchen (with lots of food actually - I would check and see what is in the cupboards before going shopping next time!) to snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, chairs and many boogie boards. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The fans and ocean breeze made it comfortable even when it was hot outside in the sun. We used the pool one evening too - it was clean and the temp was perfect to cool off before dinner. Our girls loved that it had a true "deep end". The location is in perfect proximity to Poipu Beach and Brennecke's - we walked over there a couple of times instead of driving the 1/2 mile. It is also just minutes from Shipwrecks Beach and Koloa where we went every day to the fish market for fresh Poke. We really enjoyed how low key all of these beaches were. One day we drove to Hanalei and while it was beautiful it was insane with people and traffic rushing to the North Shore for the big waves. It made us glad we decided to stay in Poipu and could just visit the other areas. Everything was close enough that even a day trip to Hanalei and Waimea Canyon allowed us to still hit the beach when we got back in the afternoon."

  • Best Seat in the House

    "My wife and I stayed in this unit for 16 days starting on Jan 16, 2016 and enjoyed it thoroughly. The unit was beautiful and exactly as represented on the website. We had stayed in two other units in this complex previously but this one really stood out from the other two. The view from the 3rd floor is a commanding one (nice feature: even tho the unit is on the 3rd floor the building is configured in a way that requires only one flight of stairs. I have some mobility issues but had zero problems negotiating the stairs) and the building is designed in such a way that you cannot see the units to your left or right. The sunsets as viewed from the lanai are like God's own wide screen TV. I loved the newly installed wood floors because, unlike the carpeting we had in the other two units, the wood doesn't smell musty or feel perpetually damp. The unit has its own washer and dryer, which is a huge convenience and also a second bathroom, an even bigger convenience. With the 2nd bathroom my wife and I could get ready for the day simultaneously, which probably saved us an hour every day. We were there for 16 days so that's a LOT of extra time we could spend vacationing instead of drying our hair. This area is a GREAT location and close to an amazing array of cool stuff. The unit is well appointed and aside from a kitchen that looks perhaps a bit dated, everything is beautiful and functional. Time spent on Kauai is fantastic; staying here enhances an already wonderful experience. Bottom line: my wife and I loved it and in fact booked a return stay for 2017 in this same unit. Can I make one suggestion? Wood floors can scratch easily and it's imperative to keep them scrupulously free of any kind of dirt or grit. Even with us removing our shoes at the door we found that it was easy to track in, especially from the lanai where the lanai floor would accumulate debris blown off of the trees. I either swept or vacuumed every day to keep the floors clean. A $30 stick vac with an easy-to-empty dirt cup would make it a breeze to keep the floors flawless. The old canister vac is cumbersome and awkward to use. Just a thought. We had a fabulous time. Thanks for letting us use your home."
