Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo with stunning ocean views from master bedroom, living room, dining area and lanai- second bedroom has garden and ocean view. The corner location gives privacy and the open planning allows the trade breezes to keep things cool and pleasant year- round. After a day on the beach or exploring beautiful Kauai, relax on luxurious Serta mattresses and organic linen and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf.
We have beach umbrella, boogie boards,beach chairs and cooler for your use. Eco-friendly toiletries and cleaning supplies help keep Kauai green .We support local green businesses and encourage our guests to do so as well.
Condo has lovely swimming pool, hot tub, floodlit tennis court and barbecue area. Short oceanfront walk to Shipwreck Beach and enjoy the fabulous Grand Hyatt Hotel -and if you want, continue on to the spectacular 4-mile Maha'ulepu Heritage trail - never having to set foot on the road! Or if world-famous Poipu Beach with its swimming, snorkelling, boogie boarding and surfing is your destination, a pleasant 10 minute walk from the condo will get you there.
Our condo is on the southern-most tip of the island and is the perfect spot for whale, dolphin, and turtle spotting from the lanai or even from the comfort of bed! Panoramic 180 degree ocean views, with both sunrise and sunset visible from lanai during the winter months.
We look forward to ensuring you have a fantastic vacation.

We love the tranquility of this spot, with the endless ocean views and the restful sounds of the ocean waves. It's fantastic to be able to walk everywhere - to fancy hotels and restaurants and to lovely swimming beaches and snorkeling spots. You feel like you're in a totally private house once in the condo - nothing in the view except the magnificent ocean. In season one sees humpback whales and dolphins swim by. All year round one sees the turtles playing in the waves.
Outstanding location - pure ocean views. Short walk to great hotels, golf course, restaurants, swimming and snorkeling beaches.
A special place for an 80th birthday. The condo exceeded our expectations. Did and saw a lot in a short time and will be back.
My husband and I had rented this space with my elderly parents for 2 weeks. This condo is very clean, spacious, and is in a very good location with easy access to beaches and restaurants and the view from the lanai is amazing! We saw lots of turtles swim by and one seal. The kitchen is a bit small and difficult to work in with more than 1 person.
Lea, the property manager was very courteous and helpful with lots of suggestions for good places to
eat and fun things to do.
We had a great first week, however during our second week the outside building was power washed in order to prepare for painting and caulking for the next 2 days. During this time the windows needed to be closed. The following 2 days we were awakened at 8:00 am to loud maintenance crew scraping paint and jumping on to the lanai to paint & caulk leaving a big mess for me and my 80 year old mother to clean. Unfortunately there are no curtains on the windows so there is not a lot of privacy when there are loud workers on the ground below and on the lanai. During this time we found it difficult to sleep since the windows needed to be open to get the cross breeze since there is no ac.
The Pool was closed during our entire 2nd week for chemical cleaning and repairs. The jacuzzi was also closed for repairs during our entire stay
This condo is a beautiful spot and Kauai is a beautiful island. I understand maintenance needs to be done in order to maintain the property and the building, I just wish they would have done this later in the day or not at all during my vacation. If we were aware of this inconvenience we may have picked different dates to stay here.
I was more than thrilled with this condo. The only thing that could have made it any better would have been spotting a whale from the lanai like so many other guests (we did see lots of sea turtles though)! The condo was beautiful, clean, and had the most unbelievable view I have ever experienced. My husband and I enjoyed listening to the waves crash on the rocks outside our windows while we slept and sitting on our lanai every morning while eating our breakfast and whale watching. Lea, who helps manage the condos, was amazing! She made sure the room was ready for us as soon as we arrived, even though we got in early in the morning. She also gave great restaurant recommendations and checked in with us periodically so see if we needed anything. This room was perfect for a romantic getaway, but would also be ideal for a small family. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet, secluded room with a STUNNING view.
We booked with another couple and couldn't have been happier with this beautiful condo. It's situated right on the water, and we arrived in time to see the last of the migrating whales. The condo is very comfortable, clean, quiet and well equipped, with quality beds and linens. The master bedroom/suite is special, and the second bedroom with en suite bathroom was very comfortable. Lea greeted us warmly and showed us all that we needed to know. We were delighted with everything about this property and recommend it highly to anyone looking for a lovely vacation in the Poipu area. It's one of those special situations where you feel that rather than being over-rated, the description is under-stated! We hope to stay here again on our next trip to Kauai.
This Makahuena Condo is a wonderful place to stay. It is well equiped (beach equipment, chairs for the beach and the sunsets condiments in the kitchen etc). Keith and Ann were
very helpful. From the master bedroom we could see the sunrise, which was great, but the best place is the lanai. Absolutely breathtaking. We spent hours and hours watching the whales and the dolphins swimmingup and down, sometimes just a few yards off shore. We took such a lot of pictures of breaching whales that at home we had a hard work to find the best ones . Some turtles came to the rocks as well. For the sunset we went to the "lighthouse" nearby with the beach chairs - very romantic!! In a few minutes you can go to the Shipwreck beach, the nice Keoniloabay, on the west side the beautiful Poipubeach were you can take a swim or do the snorkeling. Once we saw there even a Monk Seal laying in the sand for the whole day and enjoying the sun. We felt very sorry that we had to leave but we will be back next year, even if it is a long way from Switzerland to Kauai! Mahalo.
Our family enjoyed a week in this wonderful oceanfront condo over Christmas.
The location is amazing as it is literally perched on a cliff with the waves serenading you to sleep in the master bedroom overlooking the ocean. We saw numerous whales, dolphins, turtles and monk seals.
The condo is well equipped for your Kauai outdoor vacation needs with beach towels and toys (for the keiki) , beach mats, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, cooler, and tennis rackets (court on premises).
The kitchen was well stocked with essentials such as numerous spices and condiments.
The nearness to wonderful beaches within walking distance both to the west and east was a big plus.
We utilized the resort barbeques on a couple of occasions and enjoyed sunset dining from the lanai.
An added bonus was being able to experience sunrises from the same lanai!!
We would definitely stay in Keith and Sheila's condo again and highly recommend it to anyone.
Keith & Shelia, thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo!!! The manager of your property, Ann, went out of her way to make sure we had everything necessary to make our stay stress free. Our flight arrived late in the evening so she offered to do a little grocery shopping prior to our arrival. The view was spectacular!!! We could see the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets right from our balcony. The condo offered all of the ammenities needed (tennis rackets, beach towels, boogie boards, etc.). The condo was in a perfect location. Walking distance to the beach and resturants. We would highly recommend your condo to anyone looking to stay on the Southside of Kauai. Thanks for sharing your awesome condo with us!!!
Take a 12 minute stroll along an ocean path which leads to the Hyatt Hotel with great restaurants and shopping. Continuing past the hotel leads to a spectacular easy cliff walk/ hike for many miles - it goes past the Hyatt Hotel's world class golf course.
A short 8 minute walk in the other direction takes you to wonderful swimming/ snorkeling and boogie boarding beaches and surfing spots.
