Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed, 2.5+ baths (sleeps 4-6)

Our beautiful condo is located in the Makahuena Resort Complex. Our unit is 1200 sq ft, two story (top two floors), two and a half bath and is newly refurbished with great views and the sounds of the ocean from the condo and the lanai. The kitchen has new cabinets, granite tile counters and new appliances. This townhome features two master suites with private baths. Each bathroom has new cabinets and countertops and sinks.

The living room quickly converts to a nice bedroom with a brand new comfortable sofa bed, blinds and a half bath. There is a new flat screen TV with cable and DVD player in the living room. There are also TV's in each master with cable as well. Free broadband internet access with free Wifi is included with this condo.

Our condo is situated just yards from the water on the top two levels of the complex. This offers the best views with no other units on top of you for noise control. The Grand Hyatt Hotel and Poipu Bay Golf Course is 3/4 mile away. The Sheraton Hotel and Mariott Waiohai Beach Club is about one mile in the other direction. The complex includes a large tile lined pool and spa and a nice lighted tennis court. There is a large bar-be-que pavilion with 2 gas barbecues for guests to use.

The world famous Poipu beach, which has great snorkeling and surfing is within walking distance in one direction and Ship Wreck Beach at the Grand Hyatt Resort is a short walk in the other direction. From the Makahuena Point viewing area, which is located in the complex, you get the unique experience of viewing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the exact same viewing spot in the same day!

During the months of November through April, you will have one of the best viewing areas on the island to see whales from the lanai and from the Makaheuna point, also all year long you can see numerous turtles and dolphin pods.

This condo is special to us as its our second home on the island of which we got married!

About Sean Whisler

Kristy and I had visited the island six times in the last five years and decided that since we got married here, we wanted to buy a second home here to enjoy and cherish this island and what it has to offer for many, many years!

Sean Whisler purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sean Whisler chose Poipu

We happened along this property via VRBO and fell in love with the smaller complex and quietness of the resort. The location was optimal for us as we love the sun and the beaches here in Poipu get sun all year long with very minimal rainy days.

We also love this property due to the expansive ocean views with nothing between us and the ocean and its sounds!

It also helps that this property is literally about one half mile from the very beach we got married on!!

What makes this condo unique

The benefits of this property is location to Lihue to go into town for any items that you forgot but still be 'away' from the city to enjoy 'island' time at all the quaint, local shops and restaurants that Poipu and its surrounding communities has to offer. All literally within a few miles of each other!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just came back on Sunday from 10 very enjoyable days in Kauai. The staff in the office were great and the condo was very nice. Great location and it had everything we needed. The beach chairs and umbrella were a plus to have as well. It did get hot in the condo, as the trade winds weren't blowing much, but the fans helped immensely! Thanks so much, Sean & Kristi, for letting us stay in your place in Paradise. We had a fabulous time!

Beautiful condo in prime location

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved staying here in Kauai. Some quick thoughts:

1. Very nicely furnished. Two large beds in each bedroom was perfect for 2 couples travelling. And well appointed furniture, dishes, etc.
2. Really enjoyed beach chairs/boogie boards. Made it easy to hop over to Poipu.
3. Great central location for seeing the whole island.
4. Appreciated all the spices and cooking amenities available.
5. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Sunset was beautiful at the edge of the condo by the ocean.
6. Did get a little hot one night when the breeze wasn't blowing. But they have about 20 fans (seriously) so that really helped. I think it was abnormally hot that week actually.
7. Extremely fast response to questions. Thanks for the great advice Sean.

We can't wait to come back and would highly recommend it!

Nice Condo, But it is Very Warm Inside

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this condo for 6 nights in the middle of August and there were many positives. It is nicely equipped, has a nice slice of a view and the condo complex has a nice pool and hot tub. The location is great, but be aware that walking to town at night is not a very good idea. There is little lighting and no sidewalk, so we didn't feel safe attempting it. There is a nice hike along the coast right from the condo complex past the Hyatt. We really enjoyed that and I would suggest trying it. Also, this side of the island has a lot more to do, etc. than Princeville. There's really not much there besides resorts and Hanalei Bay. I definitely felt like we picked the right area as a home base.

There were a few negatives for us. It is very warm in the condo, even with the trade winds blowing and fans on. I think this is mainly because the unit faces to the side (towards the pool), so you don't really benefit as much from the winds since they don't really flow through the unit as well as I would imagine they do in oceanfront units. When we got there, I don't think the windows had been open and the fans on very long, so it was really hot. It cooled down a bit, but it was still very warm inside, even at night. To be fair, I don't think you'll get air conditioning anywhere but at a resort since the electricity rate is insanely high. If this is something that's a deal breaker, you should probably look at a hotel. For us, it was uncomfortable, but we got over it by the end. One other thing I'll note is that the kitchen is small, so it was difficult having more than one or two people in there at a time. If the dishwasher is open, you can't get into or out of the kitchen with out stepping awkwardly over it.

All in all, a nice unit and nice location (as a runner, there were good routes to take as well).

Perfect Location and Awesome Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5
You simply cannot go wrong renting Sean and Kristi's condo! The descriptions and pictures displayed here are spot on. In fact, the pics don't do it justice. We are a family of four and it was more than comfortable. The Makahuena condo complex is very well kept and beautifully landscaped. There was virtually no noise, except for birds chirping, ocean waves and an occasional rooster crow (but that's everywhere on this beautiful island). Sean and Kristi have thought of everything to make the stay great (beach towels, beach chairs, soft coolers, quality furniture and housewares, etc.) and it's nicely decorated. The condo is in a great location in Poipu. You can get to beaches in minutes by car or by foot and there is also a walking trail from the condo complex that follows along the ocean to Shipwreck beach (Grand Hyatt area). Though if you are carrying chairs, towels, food, snorkel gear, etc., it's better to take your car to one of the many beaches (which are all public) and there is usually plenty of parking.

This was our first experience at any of the Hawaiian Islands and our first time renting a condo through VRBO, so naturally, we were a little worried about the place we were going to stay. Rest assured, if you choose this condo, the only thing you will need to worry about is making sure you put on sunscreen each day!!!

When we come back to Kauai (hopefully soon and often), we will rent Sean and Kristi's again without hesitation.

BTW, if you have young/school aged kids, the pool is a great way to end the day. They take impeccable care of it and the spa, plus it's fun to meet other families staying at the Makahuena.

Mahalo Sean and Kristi!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do it justice. Spent 3 weeks and booked for 6 weeks next year. The condo was very tastefully decorated and having the master bedrooms upstairs was wonderful.The owners thought of all the needs of guests. Quiet location and beautiful views all day long. Watched whales from the lanai. Utilized the barbeque facilities. Loved gathering at the point for sunsets. Quiet location but very accessible to Poipu Beach. Close to the beautiful Grand Hyatt and the grounds and Shipwreck beach. Loved the Chef special at Keiokis Paradise and Brennekes for great fish and chips. This has been our 7 trip to Kauai and this condo and vacation was the best so far.

Fabulous Poipu vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this lovely condo. The condo has peaceful ocean views from the living room, master bedroom and lanai. The sophisticated condo is very tastefully decorated and up to date with designer touches. The condo complex is very convenient for walking to the famous nearby beaches or driving to golfing or hiking. The owners have provided some extra touches such as providing beach chairs and towels. The owners also were very easy to work with and the reservation process and vacation stay went seamlessly. It was a wonderful home away from home during our Poipu vacation.

Our condo is located in Sunny Poipu on the most southern tip of the island! There is plenty of sun on this side of the island all year long. Poipu is located just 20 minutes away from Lihue for local shops and stores as well as only 25 minutes from Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Park for miles of hiking. The world renown beaches of Poipu and Shipwreck beaches are literally 3/4 mile in either direction from our condo, well within walking distance. Great snorkeling can be found at Poipu beach as well as local surfing and paddleboarding lessons. There are numerous local restaurants within two miles of the condo with most of them within walking distance. Zip-lining, Kayaking and Helicopter tours are all must do's for the island!
