Because you come to Hawaii to get away from it all and relax. This property affords you the possibility to RELAX and ENJOY all the qualities that make Hawaii a favorite destination. Amazing Sunsets, the Ocean to view by day and to lull you to sleep at night, and the BEAUTY is breathtaking!!!!

Our condo is located at a vantage point where others come to watch the sunsets. You can watch amazing sunsets from the privacy of your lanai. You can view much of the sea life right from the lanai, i.e. whale watching, school of Dolphin as they swim by, the turtles right below the cliffs, and so much more!!!

FABULOUS CONDO AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Breathtaking views are accurate. Listen to the waves crash on the rocks from the lanai and master bedroom. We watched whales and dolphins and saw spectacular sunsets from the lanai every night. This is a comfortable and well maintained condo with an updated master bath suite. Both the owner and local caretaker were extremely friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to return. Wish I was there!

YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE!

You won't want to leave!

This condo has the best view in this complex. We enjoyed breakfast, afternoons and dinner on the lanai everyday. It was hard to leave. From the welcome basket to the condiments and spices, every kitchen tool to the local bath soaps, and soft luxurious sheets in the master, umbrella for afternoons on the lanai, novels, cooler and beach towels, hurricane glass for candles at night when there is wind, Bud and Kathy have set this up for everyone's enjoyment.
Don't forget to bring your own binoculars as the whales, turtles and spinner dolphins were sighted everytime we went out on the lanai.
The ceiling fans were enough to keep the condo cool enough in February. The hot tub is sanitized with chlorine as is the pool (for those allergic to bromine).
Guests at the complex were all very friendly and spent evenings star gazing with different guests, sighting the space station many nights. We'll be back! Mahalo!

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO STAY ON KAUAI!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many beautiful places and numerous VRBO sites over the years and this is without a doubt the BEST! The owners go way out of their way to make you welcome -- from the welcome basket full of fresh fruit and snacks, to their extensive advice about what to do on the island, and their provision of about everything you could possibly need to have a great time. We especially appreciated the cooler, beach towels, elegant local soaps and shampoos, and assortment of spices and cooking gear (even a rice maker!). What this place conceyed was the generosity of its owners, who want you to have the trip of a lifetime...and we did.

All of this was just the icing on the cake. The main thing you should know about this rental is its location and view. The lanai is about 10 yards from the Pacific Ocean and the view is breathtaking -- we ate every meal on the lanai and were rewarded with rainbows, sunrises. sunsets, and meteorites that are all unforgettable. The walk to the left (by trail) to the resort and beyond is one we took every morning and will never forget. The walk (along the road) to the right puts you at Poipu Beach in 10 mins, one of the best beaches on the earth, that among other tgings is a great snorkeling experience.

Bottom line, this place is heaven on earth and one of the best values I've ever had as a frequent traveler.

UNBEATABLE LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Makahuena 5102 is the ideal location for those who love to watch and hear the waves crashing on the rocky coast right in front of them. You really can't get any more oceanfront than this. The sunsets are spectacular, and we saw sea turtles and spinner dolphins right from the lanai! The condo is well appointed with everything you could want, and the remodeled bathrooms are beautiful. We also love the fact that Bud provides amenities like beach towels and chairs, along with a cooler for day trips around the island. The condo is within walking distance to both Poipu and Shipwreck beach, so the location can't be beat. Working with Bud was a pleasure because he goes the extra mile to accommodate your needs. We will definitely stay here again.

BEAUTIFUL SPOT

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our one week stay at this unit. The pics and info about the unit as described were accurate. The views off the lanai are fantastic - crashing waves and sunsets were a treat. I would definitely recommend this unit. The owners were great to work with, and I felt they were genuinely interested that we had a good experience staying at their Kauai home. And we did. Kitchen is well-equipped. The best part was simply taking one's drink or food out to the lanai to enjoy with the views. No A/C, so fans were definitely nice to have; and the tradewinds would keep things from getting too warm. The complex's BBQ area has very good Weber Genesis BBQ's. Nothing fancy about the pool and hot tub, but it was nice and we used it many times. Overall location of the Makahuena complex is pretty good because you're not that far away from beaches, walks, and shopping. The location of the unit within the complex was probably one of the best because you were right out to the water and unobstructed views.

Activities we tried were zip-lining, Na Pali raft tour, helicopter tour, inner-tubing through old sugar cane plantation irrigation canals/tunnels, and bicycling downhill from Waimea Canyon lookout.
Zip-lining was through Princeville Ranch on the north shore. It was fun and would recommend this activity combined with exploring in and around the north shore to make it a full day's worth. The north side of the island is very beautiful, don't miss it.
Na Pali raft tour was with Na Pali Rafters out of Waimea. Good tour but be prepared to bounce a bit on the ocean. Two of my three kids got a little seasick; all others on the tour (about 20 people total) did not. We were able to go through some sea caves and get up close with dolphins.
Helicopter tour was through Island Helicopters. Our party of four was $700 if paid in cash, so a bit pricey compared to the other activities. Flight about 45-50 mins, Spectacular experience and we agreed our favorite out of all 5 tours we took because it was simply so grand.
Inner-tubing was through Kauai Backcountry Adventures. This is a slow-moving inner-tube ride through irrigation canals and tunnels. Most of the time we were floating through tunnels. You wear a hard-hat with a light that you turn on while in the tunnels. The guides made everything easy.
Our bicycle tour down the Waimea Canyon road was fun. Since you should not miss seeing the Waimea Canyon while on Kauai, this was a fun and unique way to do so.

RETURN TO MAKAHUENA

  • 5 of 5
The beginning of April, 2013, brought a return to this condo unit for the second time. We loved it the first time and thought it was even better this time around! The owner prepared us for our visit with a written introduction to the complex and the Poipu area. Since our last visit, updates have been made to the bathrooms and they look great. The unit is clean, well-maintained and well-stocked with whatever you might need to prepare meals, do laundry or entertain yourself.

The description on VRBO is an honest representation but it can't begin to describe the location. There is much to do on Kauai but it becomes a genuine challenge to leave the lanai and walk out the door. Watching and listening to the pounding ocean is a real treat for these Coloradans! The night we arrived four or more humpbacked whales put on a lengthy show of breaching, tail slapping and spouting quite close to the cliff in front of the condo. Shortly thereafter, a large group of spinner dolphins swam by. And the sea turtles are a constant. Eating on the lanai is always a highlight of our trip. And the sunsets are unequalled!

There are so many things to do on Kauai and great restaurants in the vicinity but - as I said - good luck dragging yourself away from the view on the lanai! We will definitely return!

We are 1/2 mile or less from one of the best rated beaches in Hawaii. Many wonderful restaurants and shops are equally as close. Our condominium affords some of the best sunset views on the island as well as sea life viewing. The complex has a wonderful swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts and the outdoor community grilling area is modern and beautiful. All the amenities that you may require are offered in the condo including a full washer and dryer. Outdoor amenities are numerous but the view from our condo is by far the greatest amenity of all!! A guest book inside the condo has numerous suggestions from previous guests regarding, restaurants, must-see places and must do activities during your stay.
