"Kauai Vacation 2020
We enjoyed the location of the condo, and the view was spectacular! The condo was clean and maintained. The grounds were beautiful and the pool was clean and clear. I do wish the pool was heated as it was very cold. The hot tub was nice. Bedrooms were a good size. The in-unit washer and dryer were well maintained. "

"Great Kauai vacation
We very much enjoyed our stay. The condo was exactly what we needed in Kauai. "

"Terrific for families
365 Poipu staff were welcoming and responsive to needed repair. The setting and accommodation was great. We liked having access to the Athletic Club and pool.

"Great escape
Perfect place to relax!"
Dec 23, 2019 - , Twin Falls, ID

"Great Location
The condo was located in a great place with an amazing view. The condo was well stocked even with things like laundry soap, dishwasher detergent, extra shampoo, beach chairs and great beach towels. There were several drawbacks to this condo- although there were nice barbeques, but it lacked lighting so it was difficult to see what you were cooking and where you were walkling,the door lock was very difficult to unlock and because of the ocean view the sun beats in the windows and the condo gets extremely hot and has no air conditioning. The only way to cool it down was to have the front door open and this helped but was uncomfortable having it open so your neighbors see in. The staff were helpful when you needed them and responded quickly."

"Just okay
The location was great. The condo shows some signs of wear (door frame has a lot of damage) and the floors were really dirty. In the Hawaiian tradition, you are to remove your shoes (which we did) but our feet became so dirty that we had to wear flip flops when inside the house."
Dec 06, 2019 - Jill P., Portland, OR

"Beautiful Location
The property was beautiful, spacious and looks just like the pictures. It comfortably fit the 5 of us without feeling like we were tripping over each other. We did have major issues with the front door and struggled getting inside several times. We also started with incorrect Wi-if information and the TV remotes didn’t work either at first until we contacted the property manager. One other thing to keep in mind is that there is no A/C, so be prepared to be warm at night, especially if you’re staying in the summer months. Overall though it was nice! "

"Nice location
Our unit was nice but we had some issues with 2 fans included in unit that were inoperable. The tile floors were not clean because when we looked at our bare feet that first day all our feet were black. Unfortunately it was stifling in the unit because there was no air conditioning. Again, the location was nice but I wouldn’t stay at this location again. "

"Poipu 365 #2-203
My family of five had a great time in July at Poipu 365. The place was just like it was described. Very clean with a great pool area and really nice Bar-B-Q's. You could see plenty of sea turtles right from the resort grassy areas. No A/C'S but plenty of box and ceiling fans which along with the ocean breeze made it comfortable. Great snorkeling just over the hill for all ages at Poipu beach park. The front door is quite tricky to open, but other than that the place was great. Can't wait to go back!

"Nice Location but needs some updating
The location of this property was nice and convenient. The unit's kitchen and bathrooms were some what newly updated. However, the bedrooms are very hot and stuffy and in need of care. The portable fans looked about 20 years old, extremely dusty and dirty, the night stand was stained, dirty and with multiple patched of touch up paint. The bath towels were bleach stained, beach gear was spars (3 chairs for 6 people) and well used. They were covered with sand in the closet and made quite a mess when we retrieved them, and the kitchen lacked some basic items. The front door was almost impossible to open and not possible for my mother in law. I expressed these concerns to the agency and I received a generic reply stating the difficulties of up keep on an island. My son compared his bedroom in your condo to Cuba. (Which we travelled to last year) We are fine with meager accommodations but for $400 a night I would expect better. We have stayed in the island for 20 years and are well aware of these issues with the climate. We just came from Princeville where we stayed in a 3B/3B for less and was FAR superior. We are very disappointed. "

"Ten days in Poipu
The location was great - a short walk to the water with a great view of sea turtles swimming. We enjoyed the view. The condo was good, but we did have a few noisy neighbors."
Jun 17, 2019 - , St Charles, IL

"Lovely Stay
The condo was perfect for our family of 6; spacious, relaxing and quiet. It had everything we needed location-wise: awesome ocean views, close proximity to everything and easy parking. However, the kitchen lacked quite a few things: sandwich bags, bag clips, rubber bands, tin foil, plastic wrap, dish towels, extra napkins and paper towels, plastic dishes, tape, scissors, dish gloves and extra Tupperware. We had to purchase some of these things which was no big deal but more an inconvenience.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend this condo. "

"Great location and condo, but maintenance issues
We recently stayed in Makahuena 2203. The location is great. It is close to Poipu Beach, restaurants, and shopping. There are great amenities on the property including tennis/pickleball courts, a swimming pool and jacuzzi. The condo was laid out well with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The furniture was nice and most everything you would need is provided, both for the beach and for the condo. The only issue we had was maintenance. The door into the condo was very difficult to open, the lovely sinks in the bathrooms needed to be recaulked, there were missing screens and screens that needed to be rescreened, hot water would run out before everyone had their shower, and the floors were not very clean when we arrived. "
Mar 14, 2019 - , Livingston, MT

Our stay here was great. The lock was really annoying to deal with. It's a really random problem to have with a homestay. A few condiments would've been nice but we left a few when we left. We were able to do laundry and use the place fully. I wish we used the membership/pool more. It would be nice to have a later check out as well. Thank you for letting us take a few more minutes checking out with the two kids. "

"The views are worth it!
We just finished one week in 2303. It was a great visit. Condo is clean and in good condition. We especially appreciated the lanai as it has such wonderful views. We saw whales and sunsets every day! Kitchen was well stocked with glasses, pots, pans and two coffee makers. Pool area is clean and the hot tub is HOT! Did I mention the great views?"

"Relaxing location with great view
Check in and check out was a breeze. Suite was well maintained and spacious. View of pool and ocean were wonderful and relaxing. Walking trails nearby were great."
Feb 17, 2019 - Douglas T., Lantzville, BC

"This place keeps all promises
We used the condo as a converging place for our scattered family to celebrate an early Christmas. The place is clean and all appliances worked. The obligatory health club membership had the added bonus that on the last day we checked out at 10 am and could lounge there till our plane left lat at night."
Jan 02, 2019 - Claudia L., Vancouver, BC

"Nice appartment and great view
Location is great. We have seen dolphins and whales last morning. Nice pool and very clean appartment.
Thank you"

"Excellent Home with a view
Had a great experience in this rental home. the view is great and the sound of the crashing waves at night is soothing. the large master bedroom with japanese style screens is lovely.
overall the stay was enjoyable. "
Dec 31, 2018 - Subbu V., Pleasanton, CA

It was a wonderful location - everything was clean and in working order. We wish we could have stayed longer. Would go back to this location if I go back to Kauai and I hope I do!"
Dec 03, 2018 - Gail F T., Elk River, MN

"Beautiful sunsets
This was a comfortable, clean, updated rental.

Three bedrooms, no A/C but the evenings were cool and the area was quiet so I didn't mind the open windows.

A nice pool and hot tub in the courtyard, we spent an evening out by the pool watching the sky get dark while the kids splashed in the water.

The balcony provided a beautiful view for the sunsets in October, and the short path to the cliffs along the Pacific gave a stunning sunset and shoreline view."
Nov 14, 2018 - John D., Fort Collins, Colorado

"Family Adventure!
For our family vacation this unit was ideal for our needs. It easily accommodated four adults and two kids in a very spacious unit with an ocean view. The unit was clean, comfortable and filled with all the basic neccesities for island life. On our part, we overlooked the lack of AC. The property management team was very responsive and accommodating. The property is easy to get in and out of to the neighboring areas or a good staging area for trips all over the island. We’d stay here again if given the chance. "
Nov 14, 2018 - Akshay P., Pleasanton, CA

"Family Vacation
We absolutely loved this property for our family vacation. Great views. Clean pool and Jacuzzi. The condo was clean and comfortable.Some of the beds could use a bit more cushion, but that would be the only thing we would have wanted on top of our great experience. We hope to come back and stay here in the future. "
Oct 18, 2018 - Brittney W., San Jose, CA

"Great stay.
Fourth stay in Poipu and this was as good as any. Condo was clean, well stocked kitchen, lovely view and perfect location. Proximity to walking trail was a bonus I was unaware of, but used daily.
Only drawback was when we went out for an early morning walk and accidentally locked ourselves out. Our fault, no question about it. When we called the emergency number given we were told it would be mid day before she could respond. "
Oct 18, 2018 - Ann P., Monarch, MT

"What a wonderful experience!
We all enjoyed our stay at Makahuena 2203. They had everything we needed and more. The entire place was so well equipped with all the necessities for pool, beach, and especially kitchen with all kinds of utensils and appliances. Beds are comfortable. The seating and view from the lanai is priceless. Enjoyed viewing sunsets, sunrises, and waves crashing onto the rocks from the lawn area of the complex, which is literally a two-minute walk. We will surely come back. Mahalo!"
Sep 18, 2018 - Kanan J., Newark, CA

"Condo in Paradise!!!
Makahuena was exactly as pictured. The view is spectacular as seen in the pictures but is not a full panoramic view. Great complex with a very nice pool. Amazing sunsets from the front of the condo facing the ocean just a short walk. There is a rocky point next to the condo which is spectacular and a wonderful place to take a walk next to or just sit and watch the waves. I would highly recommend this condo Great location! Enjoy......"

"Nice condo!
The property was as we expected from the listing and had everything that we needed. The pool was nice too! It's a good location for getting to the beach and easy access for getting around by car. The property manager was very helpful."
Sep 17, 2018 - , Redmond, WA

"Very nice, as always!
After many stays at Makahuena over the years, this 2nd floor 3-BR unit is one of our favorites. Good airflow due to its location, nice view to see our family in the pool. Clean and in good shape. Strong wifi. Beautiful location. A little noisy next to stairs when there are several families going to and from third floor units. The Poipu Athletic Club access was nice; one of our group used it every day. I recommend it!"

"Excellant Location
We enjoyed our stay ! Great view and a lovely home."

"Kicking Back in Kauai
We loved this place! All of the arrangements were easy, great view from the balcony, very comfortable with good beds, nice kitchen, lots of seating spaces. "
Jun 05, 2018 - Kari E., Salt Lake City, UT

"Kauai may 2018
The rental was great location, Ocean Views, Close to Beach. Main living area nice. No A/C, only 2 fans to use in all three rooms. Evening time No air flow when front door is shut. Recommend another fan, Ceiling Fans in dining area and Master do not go past slow.
Only comment I have is the Option for the Fitness Center fee that was optional for those facilities; which are not that close by. We were charged and never used $12 daily. I will use this location again in my near future. "

"Very Nice
Great location, easy access to the condo and surrounding areas. A bit noisier than expected after hours, but friendly voices. Seemed pretty family oriented, which was nice for us."
Jun 05, 2018 - , San Rafael, CA

"Great condo
We had a great time at this condo
it was a last minute booking and we were a little concerned that we were not on the beach but as far as we were concerned we ended up in the best spot possible with easy drive to beach athletics club and more
the condo had everything that you could need and is obviously a much loved holiday house which we felt privileged to stay in "

"our makahuena vacation
We loved the condo and the super location! The lights over the sink didn't work and we didn't have bath towels for everyone but all in all it was a lovely place to spend 14 days! We may be back!!"
Apr 26, 2018 - Vic R., Billings, MT

"Beautiful Views, Comfortale Accommodations
Over the condo was a great place to stay - it is in a great spot for gorgeous ocean views. The pool is really nice and we used the BBQ almost every night. It's very quiet and peaceful. The kitchen in the apartment is nice and the bedrooms are spacious. I loved that there were buckets, spades, beach towels, etc. for us to use. A few things to note: there is no AC in the condo so the master bedroom gets pretty hot during the day. The condo wasn't all-over clean when we arrived - the floor was a bit on the dirty side so I had to do a lot of spot cleaning before letting our toddler run around. And the beaches, whilst walkable, are a bit further than we thought. It is more like a 20 minute walk to Poipu Beach and much of the road does not have a sidewalk which was tough for us with an infant and toddler. Other than that we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to other families. "
Nov 15, 2017 - Carley P., Seattle, WA

We found this location to be an ideal spot. Close to Brenekes Beach where we boogie boarded every afternoon as well as Poipu for snorkling. You could hear the waves crash 100 yards away and we even had the pleasure of seeing a pod of dolphins right from the patio. There is an ocean view to the left and to the right. Located just outside the property was a nice walking path to a lookout which was a great spot for a cup of joe and watching the sun rise. Nice and spacious, and stocked with all your vacation needs.

the condo was great the photos do not do it justice..the views are amazing unit was very clean and we had all we needed i would stay here again !!!"
Oct 23, 2017 - Thom B., Sussex, WI

"good solution for family lodging
This condo provided views to the ocean and the pool and was a very good launching pad for viewing all that Kauai had to offer. There were some maintenance issues (sliding screen doors, the twin beds needed to be attached more securely, the dishwasher broke) however, the property management company dealt with it promptly. There is a large construction site next door, however, our unit was not noisy. It's a relaxing and beautiful place to stay.
May 26, 2017 - , Portland, OR

"Loved Poipu
This condo was very nice, clean, well stocked & comfortable and we enjoyed the beautiful views from the lanai. We loved Kauai and will certainly be back, having Shipwreck beach and Poipu beach walking distance was great, the area could use more restaurants and stores but we had a car so that did make the stay more enjoyable
Mahalo from Canada "
Mar 13, 2017 - Michele C., Morse, Saskatchewan

"Better than we expected!
This was our 2nd trip to Poipu but our first time staying at the Makahuena. The photos do not do this property justice - it is much better than the photos! We were pleasantly suprised by the great view and proximity to the ocean and the spacious unit. The unit itself is in great condition and the furniture, kitchen supplies etc. were all very good quality and clean. There were plenty of beach supplies and towels available as well, which was helpful. Because we have been to Poipu before and we knew where we wanted to stay we were very happy with the location. However, first time guests should know that there is a walk of a few blocks to get to either of the nearby beaches.

The only negatives related to the building overall and not this unit - the hot tub at the pool was out of service for 5 of the 7 days we were there, which was a big disappointment. There is also a very large construction site next door which at times was very loud. Nonetheless, we will plan to look up this property again the next time we are in Poipu. "
Mar 08, 2017 - Tom B., Saint Paul, MN

"Two and half weeks in paradise!
This was great base for our vacation to Kauai. The apartment was clean, well-stocked/furnished, and in an excellent location to explore the island. The rooms were very comfortable and there was plenty of space for our families (4 adults/2 kids). Everyone enjoyed watching whales and dolphins from the lanai in the morning. The complex itself was very relaxed, the other guests and residents were friendly, and the amenities (pool, BBQ) were great. The nightly sunsets were spectacular and great ritual to end the day. The location is ideal and only a short distance from good shopping and food options (we liked Kalapaki Joe's for happy hour and early dinner with the kids and the Hyatt for a romantic drink after dark). Poipu beach (10-15 min walk) was one of our favorite places to visit with great swimming for kids, snorkeling for adults (lots of turtles) and spotting local wildlife on the beach (turtles and monk seals). We would definitely stay at Makahuena again!"

"Excellent value
Condo is very nicely decorated and fully stocked with all possible amenities. Location is great, Makahuena property is great. We're repeat visitors, this was our 3rd trip to Makahuena, and we will be coming back. "

"Beautiful property helped to complete our amazing visit to Kaua'i
Our family had such a great time staying at Makahuena. The home was beautiful and stocked with everything we needed, and more! It really felt like our "home away from home". The entire property was beautifully maintained and our kids enjoyed the pool and little hike to the cliff side. We can't wait to come back and stay here again. "

"Kauai 2016
We loved our stay in Kauai. The housekeeper wasn't finished cleaning by 3pm on our arrival day. The fan pulls didn't work in the master bedroom. Other than that it was great. (and they were minor at that)"

"Fantastic visit to kauai
This is a great location for a visit to Kauai after being there for a week this is the place to be. The Makahuena 2-203 is equipped well with everything needed to have a great time. The Snorkel gear is mismatched and mostly smaller sizes so we just rented for the week which was easy and reasonable. The other beach gear chairs, coolers, boogie boards and fishing poles worked well. Beach access is a 10 min walk either way to the two different beaches. Shipwreck beach is by the Marriott this beach is less protected great for boogie boarding with bigger waves but a little rocky you will want water shoes. The other is Poipu beach this is a awesome family beach better for swimming and snorkeling great sand and well protected. We drove to both beaches it was a quick few minutes we found it a lot easier with all the gear. The complex is older but this unit has been re done and is in good shape the location is close to the pool and parking for easy access.We were there in May the weather was great, the beds are comfortable and the fans kept it nice and cool. This unit has a screed front door that works great. During the day we could open the front door for maximum air flow. The unit is close to the ocean and with the windows open you can hear the waves crashing on the rocks. The kitchen has a great assortment of cooking equipment though some has been well used. The Condo is part of a small complex it is quiet and well kept. The drive to the Airport is maybe 25 min, The drive up to the north side is maybe 1 1/2 hours. Getting around was easy and enjoyable. Our visit was flawless this was a great trip and will defiantly look to stay in this same unit again next time we visit. "

"5 Star
I have stayed at the Makahuena several times over the past 20 years. This unit is one of the best ones in the complex. The grounds are very well maintained. It is very well priced for what you received."

"Great Vacation to a hidden gem
Very happy with the rental process and property. Great location and well appointed condo. Great family beaches within minutes and the restaurants in the area rival the other Hawaiian Islands. "
May 06, 2016 - Chris S., Calgary, Alberta

"Lovely stay
Four adults (1 couple and 2 friends)traveled to Kauai to explore, play tennis and sketch. Makahuena was perfect for our plans. The tennis court was right outside our door and the pool and view of the ocean right in front of our balcony.Magnificent sunsets from the balcony. The condo was very clean, kitchen had all the basic needs in terms of pots and pans and eating utensils, salt and pepper. Very nice public living space. Beds very comfortable. That being said it was perfect set-up for a family with young children. The master bedroom was luxurious but the 2 back bedrooms were dark and small. The master bedroom also had a sliding "paper wall" separating it from the living room...not very private or quiet. The tennis court would greatly benefit from a wind shield. That being said, Makahuena was really a lovely stay for us. Great location, easy drive to restaurants, beaches, and surrounding towns. "
May 06, 2016 - Emme P., North Yarmouth, Maine

"Great Complex
The suite was well maintained and well stocked, and the complex didn't feel too busy, pool included! The pool was excellently maintained. Great location close to beaches and nice places to walk. No AC, but most days it wasn't an issue due to the wind off of the ocean. Would definitely rent this unit again!"
May 06, 2016 - , Fort Saskatchewan, AB

"Makahuena 2-203 Family Vacation
We stayed in unit 2-203 for 11 days in February, along with our kids and granddaughter, and had a great time. The unit is very spacious, and the location is great. Overall, this unit is an exceptional value for the money. The unit does not have air conditioning, but is well equipped with ceiling fans and regular fans. Honestly, we don't feel there was any need for A/C, as the ceiling fans and trade winds were more than enough to keep things cooler when sleeping at night. The unit is also well equipped with leisure equipment such as boogie boards, a surf board, beach chairs, etc. We have been to Kauai twice now, and feel that Poipu is the best location on the island from both a weather, and access, perspective. Vicki and Christine were also very good to deal with. I would definitely recommend this unit, and Poipu365, to anyone who wants to get away to a great location at a reasonable price."
May 06, 2016 - , Regina, Saskatchewan

"Hey Makahuena
The location was perfect, management very responsive, the kitchen was well laid out and updated. The furniture was dated and not very clean but good sized and plenty of seating. The lanai furniture was too high and uncomfortable and lanai very small with no privacy. The complex and unit were very noisy, making sleep difficult in both the master and front bedroom."
May 06, 2016 - Kenneth Nicholas M., Winnipeg, Manitoba

Extended family including two kids. Loved the location, lanai, condition of unit (with two exceptions that I'll note below.) saw whales and a beautiful rainbow from the lainai. Newly remodeled with nice baths and kitchen, high quality everything. Comfortable beds. Wifi worked well, though a little slow. Tv setup was high-tech, with Netflix. Nice artwork. Two issues: power was out in the kids bedroom. Reported to Poipu365 at checkin. Could not be easily fixed and electrician couldn't get there until Monday. Monday came and went with no electrician. We checked out Tuesday. Property manager did bring extension cords so we could plug in the table lamp and fan in that room, which worked fine for our 3night stay. Bathroom fan is very loud and bothered the people living above us. Should be replaced and/or set on a separate switch, so it's not on with the light."
Jan 29, 2016 - Katherine J., Alameda, CA

"Thanksgiving in a Poipu condo
We were surprised by the cleanliness and newness of the condo. The amenities were great! The towels were new; the shower curtain was new; there were beach towels and snorkel gear to borrow. The bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner and body wash, which was a blessing as my son got his taken away at the airport. There might have been bed bugs in one bedroom, but my kids didn't tell me until the last night, so it was too late to check it out. Don't use the vacuum as it seems to be a fire hazard. I borrowed one from a neighbor. We would definitely rent this condo again!"
Dec 17, 2015 - Jill L., Salinas, CA

"Great place to stay!
We were very happy with the condo overall. However, it was extremely hot when we were there (high 80s, low 90s) and none of the 3 ceiling fans in the 3 bedrooms worked well. 1 didn't work at all and the other 2 went very slowly producing no cooling effect. There were 2 standing fans which worked but REALLY needed to be cleaned. They were covered in rust and cobwebs and none of us wanted to touch them. Also our dryer wasn't working for half of our stay, and we had to carry all our wet laundry to our friend's condo on the other side of the complex. When the man came back to fix it the last time, he told us it actually did work on one of the settings, which would have been nice to know and saved us some time previously. Otherwise, the place was fully stocked with everything we needed. Additional items that would have been useful are tennis rackets and a beach umbrella."
Sep 28, 2015 - Melanie J., Flagstaff, AZ

"July in Kauai
The condo has been recently remodeled and was a great place to stay during our trip to Kauai. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. There is always a great breeze that flows through the living room. Good thing too, because there is no AC."

"Great location and condo
Great location and condo, worked great for our family of 6. Ocean view from the lanai, easy acres to pool, parking. One complaint would be the paper sliding doors to master didn't provide much privacy :( but overall a great experience and great property!"

Excellent visit to Kauai. Liked our accommodations but unit was a bit dated . Nice view. No beach at that location. Very noisy. Windows all open at night with very noisy activities beginning 0530 and again 2300 plus. One am awakened to someone at recycling bin pitching glass bottles in with resultant sound of breaking glass. Probably will stay elsewhere in the future. "

"Happy in Poipu
Condos are not "our thing". We have 3 children that need space to run, but this condo was perfect for our week long stop in Poipu. Super clean, stocked and ready for the beach, 2nd story view of whales breeching and the swimming pool were all a wonderful welcome. Makahuena is not the Grand Hyatt, but it is a nice, laid back, family friendly place to soak in the sunshine, sandy beaches, salty air and amazing sunsets."

"A home away from home
Extremely comfortable from the second we walked through the door. Well furnished, clean as a whistle and from the second you sit on the couch, or porch you feel at home. Almost impossible to look into the ocean from the Lani and not see a whale. Coffee definitely tastes better while standing on the porch in the morning."

"Great stay in Makahuena 2203
This is a great 3BR unit. It was very well outfitted, with lots of appliances, utensils, plates, condiments, etc. in the kitchen. There were also beach chairs and toys in the closet. The ocean view was adequate - unfortunately there is a building blocking the center 50% of what you see (between the pool and the ocean)
The master bedroom is separated from the ‘family room/kitchen’ area by a 3 panel sliding wall, that is constructed of a wood frame with plastic inserts (that look like Japanese paper). This was attractive, and allowed for you to look from the dining table through the bedroom windows to the ocean during the day. However if your group has different sleeping and waking hours, be aware that light and noise (including from the very large flat screen TV) will get through the sliding doors with no problem. If you don’t have light/noise being generated in the main rooms while people are sleeping in the master bedroom, then there is no problem.
The nearest beach we found was Poipu Beach. This is about .7 miles from the unit – a 15 minute walk or a 3 minute drive. There is plenty of parking immediately across from the beach park, lots of grass and lots of beach, including a very sheltered ‘kiddie’ pool.
Altogether we had a great experience at this condo and would use it again if we return to Kauai.

"Beautiful location with great accommodations.
We loved the condo. It was nice to sit on the lani in the mornings drinking coffee and watching the whales and dolphins swim by. The location was good and the condo was more than we expected.
The sprinklers going off at 1 in the morning just below the window was not fun. The pool was a nice touch, but if you have young kids that want to play, you might not be appreciated there. Ours weren't.
Overall great stay and place.
One thing that would make this place stand out would be to have a local gathering area to eat outside at a picnic table or something. When with large groups, it was hard to put everyone inside to eat. "

"Anniversary Getaway
My wife Joan and I were looking for the "right place" to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary on the island of Kauai. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in Hawaii island hopping and we were looking to stay in one place. We found it in the Makahuena Condo complex. The grounds were meticulous and the views were spectacular. Our 3 BR unit was beautifully maintained and decorated. Our only complaint was the noise from the remodeling of the unit below us during our stay."

"Wonderful Place to Stay
Our condo was very clean and complete, and convenient. Had wireless internet, printer, etc. Only problem was that we had to have the owner contacted to find out how to turn the ceiling fans on. You have to turn a switch on the actual ceiling fan above the blades. Other than that, was a very nice stay. Thanks!"

"Wonderful Vacation Rental
Makahuena 2203 in Poipu actually exceeded our expectations in almost every way and we had a wonderful family holiday there. The property was beautiful and the pictures accurately depicted the suite. There were six adults in our party but the unit was so spacious that we never felt like we were falling over one another. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of beach items (chairs, towels etc.)Every room had a ceiling fan and there were also a number of portable fans so we were always able to keep the unit at a pleasant temperature. I would not hesitate to recommend Makahuena 2203 and really hope we get the chance to stay there again in future."

"Makahuena 2203
Great time! Awesome island! Good location 5 minutes to breneckes beach and restaurant. Great place for kids. Pool and hot tub view from room. Pool was great for the kids. The sliding doors were off track in the bedroom of this unit and the kitchen sink faucet fell apart. The unit came with boogie boards, beach chairs and shovels and pails for the beach. Poipu 365 provide good service other than fixing the faucet in a timely manner. I would definitely stay here again."

"Awesome vacation
The condo has everything you could possibly want and then some! From Blender to pannini press, all there. 4 Boogie boards and 4 beach chairs along with a good size cooler to take to the beach. The only point is that walking to the beach with all the stuff for 6 people was not doable. I would recommend a car.
My teenaged children enjoyed the pool and Netflix and WII and games :) thank you for a wonderful vacation."

Family of 4 and Grandparents. All fit nicely. Everything was great. Beach equipment was fabulous! Kitchen was lovely. Thank you"

"Loved our Poipu stay
We loved our stay at Makahuena 2203. The location was perfect, just a short walk from beaches appropriate for bodysurfing/bodyboarding, keiki beaches for our 4 and 6 year olds and a baby beach for our 1 year old. The condo had fresh orchids when we arrived and opened up to a beautiful ocean view. Whales and turtles regularly swam by the cliffs outside the property. The place is roomy and comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked with anything we needed. We used the beach toys and bodyboards and beach towels (mahalo!). Wifi was super easy too. We moved some stuff out of the way of the 1 yr old because he is starting to grab everything in reach, but overall very easy and would definitely come again. Thank you so much for sharing your home!"

"Makahuena Stay March 2014
The condo was beautiful and well appointed. There is not A/C which is not a problem but it does cause you to keep the windows open, This condo back bedrooms are close to the office and subject to a lot of noise during the "quiet hours". "

"Great location, value fair and condition of property good
Enjoyed our time at this property. Nice views, even seen some wales from the patio. Kitchen was equipped well. Beach gear is top quality. Property was also very clean. Would recommend this unit to others staying in this area. "
Jan 24, 2014 -

Beautiful condo. Very nicely decorated. Kitchen gorgeous. Liked the tile floors and showers were awesome. Three nice size bedrooms with big closets, nice bedding. No a/c but nice breezes. Would advise to shut the bamboo shades on west side while out during the day to keep the hot sun out. Recommend walking the dirt path, access from east side of parking lot, to watch sunrise in morning. Breathtaking. Also saw lots of whales and dolphins from this point as well as from the balcony in the condo. Walked a little further to the north and saw lots of turtles down on the rocky shore. Walk to sand beach, other direction, is more like 10 to 15 min, not 3 as advertised. Did see seal sunning on beach here. Awesome experience, only wished we could have stayed longer."

"Great spot for my family
Love the space. Only downside was that noise carried easily. No one was purposefully screaming or unusually loud - but we heard our neighbors and passers by quite clearly. "

"Makahuena Poipu
This is a great location, a busy condo complex, lots of people and noise, but walking distance from three of the best beaches on the south shore. Had trouble connecting with the Internet, trouble getting information from the management staff, ended up calling the carrier and solving it ourselves. Good price for a great location."

"Great trip to Kauai
The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. The grounds and whole experience were perfect for our three sisters and spouses trip. Very much appreciated the attention to details and the delivery of flowers when we arrived was very nice.

"Poipu Visit
We had a great visit - the rental was perfect - Could have used a little more view of the coast line - but you can't move the building! We would definitely consider renting here again. The Condo was spacious and clean."

"Poipu makahuena 203 is fabulous!
We recently spent a week at Poipu Makahuena 365 and loved it! The decor is classy and tasteful with all tile floors, tiled showers,, granite kitchen, upgraded appliances, and even fabulous counter appliances. There is a keurig coffee maker, panini griddle, and smoothie blender just to name a few. Gorgeous bedding and plenty of towels are provided; even beach towels. There are boogie boards and sand toys, as well as beach chairs and a cooler. The patio view of the ocean is lovely with palm trees gently swaying in the wind, and sounds of the surf.
Some additional touches were the household items that were provided such as hand soap, dish liquid, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The wi-fi was a blessing as phone sevice is spotty in the area. We travel a lot, and this is a spectacular condo in a terrific location! It allows easy access to anywhere on the island, especially the main sightseeing areas, while giving you the secluded getaway that is harmonious with the peacefulness and tranquility of Kauai."

"Amazing, updated, perfect vacation getaway
For context, I've got a family of five, three kids 7-4-2. We stayed in 2-203 for 8 nights. We will be back, we'll stay in this unit again, and for a longer duration.

I think the simplest compliment I can pay is that this unit felt to us like the owners had just stepped away, but were coming right back. From the fully furnished kitchen to the collection of DVDs, from the NINJA blender to the master bathroom with new tile shower, this place is a step above any vacation rental condo complex. It made you want to leave the place better than you found it.

- master rocked. tons of light, view of the water, huge bathroom with incredible shower.
- two other bedrooms, one with a queen, the other with two twins. more than enough room. we had a crib delivered the day we got there and it fit fine in the room with the queen.

Kitchen (we cooked most meals in so this was key):
- fully stocked. i mean from the best tupperware selection to the panini maker to the coffee maker. auto ice maker, tons of ice cube trays.

- tons of linens, plenty of towels (beach and shower)
- 3 TVs, including a monster 55 inch flatscreen in the main room. DVD, Wii
- four boogie boards, and four nice beach chairs. we left some kids beach toys to "pay it forward"
- great lanai. the view is as advertised: gorgeous. you'll eat all your meals out here.
- pool is sparkling clean, 3.5 ft shallow, 8 ft deep end; hot tub is fabulous.
- the vibe at Makahuena is relaxed, kind, and very family friendly - totally "Aloha"

Two areas of feedback for prop mgmt
- the lock at the front door took a second to figure out. turn it all the way to the left to draw the latch so you can push the door open. this could be replaced pretty easily and i think it should.
- the dryer is new but something is wrong with the vents and clothes didn't dry. we flagged this to prop mgmt early on, and people looked at it the day we left. it's"

Most times I need to work while traveling. Poor internet access could limit my ability to rent in future which would be too bad as the rest of the experience was excellent."

Wow is all I have to say. Fantastic vacation spot with all the amenities that you need in one spacious and perfectly located condo. Would visit again in a heartbeat."

"Nice Clean Unit w/ Great View, Could Use Improvements on Bedding
This unit has a pretty decent view of the ocean and is in a quiet location. It easily accommodated our party of 6.
* There are useful items like beach chairs and a large cooler that were pretty nifty for going out to the beach
* The new tiles are pretty awesome (always a cool temperature to walk on, good grip)
* Lots of ice in the freezer for helping to fill up the cooler

Room for Improvement:
* The bedding in the 2 non master bedrooms could definitely be improved. They felt old, rough, and a bit ratty
* We had a rough time setting up the wireless internet and just ended up hard wiring in one of our laptops for any serious web browsing

Be warned that if you have Verizon, you likely will NOT have any data service in this unit!

All in all, nice place to stay for the price.

"Great Spot! We'll be back.
We stayed in the condo for a little over a week in October. The unit was beautiful and had room to spare for our group (4 adults, 1 child).

The condo was in great shape. Nice new tile floors, beautiful bathrooms and a nice kitchen. The owners also left a few niceties (beach chairs, board games, extra fans) and the massive TV was pretty nice too. The internet was handy and worked fine. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the walk to the beach (we usually drove with all of our stuff).

Some other family stayed in nearby condos and while some were a little newer inside, they weren't quite as nice and certainly didn't have the amazing view that this unit did!

The one downside is that we could occasionally hear people walking around upstairs. Not a big deal as we could use the extra fans to drown out the noise, and it really wasn't too loud to begin with.

We'll definitely stay here again. Thanks!"

It was perfect! Thank you for all your help!just wish there was a little less rain.... :)"

We recently stayed at Makahuena 2-203 and we had a WONDERFUL time. The location of this unit was perfect! We had four teenagers with us and they could walk to THREE awesome beaches within minutes which gave me and my husband time to relax. The unit was very nice and clean. The staff left us fresh flowers which was really nice. The reason I put 4 stars instead of 5 for the general condition is that the drain in the main bath had clogged. It was a weekend so I really didn't feel the need to call someone since we had 2 bathrooms. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. I would recommend this unit to all."
