INCREDIBLE OCEAN VIEWS!!! - YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES!!

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!

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

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!!

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!

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.

THE PLACE TO STAY IN KAUAI

  • 5 of 5
All the 5 star ratings are well deserved and I'm adding another one. We've stayed in a LOT of condos in Hawaii over the past 30 years and we've never had owners who've tried so hard (and succeeded!) in providing everything a guest could want including a quality set of knives that really cut (almost unheard of in condo rentals). The kitchen is clean and modern and the paintings and enlarged photographs (taken by the owner) make it seem like an art gallery. The mattress on the king size bed was probably the most comfortable one we've every slept on.

The one thing to be aware of is there is no elevator, but arrangements can be made for those who need help lugging their bags up the flight and a half of stairs.

Communicating with Sean, one of the owners, was a real pleasure. In addition to cheerfully and quickly answering all my pesky questions, he did so with a sense of humor and added a lot of interesting details about the unit. He also solicited any suggestions we could make once we got there. We'd recommend #1306 to anyone.

VIEWS ARE MUCH CLOSER AND BETTER IN PERSON!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful view from the lanai!! We watched whales breach from there on a daily basis!!! The views are so much closer in person as the photos are hard to judge from! The entire unit was very,very nice and comfortable. The interior and furniture were nicely decorated! The trade winds had returned and the unit was rather cool and most nights we had to have an extra light blanket for some warmth. We loved the flat screen TV's mounted on the walls in the bedrooms as we like to fall asleep to the TV. The BBQ area was literally just right up the walkway making grilling super easy to get to and back to the unit for lanai style dining nightly!! We would highly recommend this top floor, two story unit for comfort, price,location and VIEW!!!!

POIPU IS THE PLACE TO BE

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with the condo. It was roomy, and was very well equipped. it suited us 4 adults very well. The only negative was that it was very hot especially in the bedrooms. We would certainly stay there again as it is a great location on Kauai. Thank you to Sean and Kristy for making this available for such a short visit.

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.
