Overview

About the property

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 Kauai

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!

Great location within walking distance of the beach

  • 5 of 5

Spacious for a family of four. Access to pool and within walking distance to the beach. Very clean which is a must. Bedrooms with A/C, as most places in Kauai do not have A/C. Full kitchen with washer and dryer. Would stay here again, if return to Kauai. Highly recommend.

Excellent family vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

This property is perfect for families traveling to Kauai. It is very close to the beach, and everything you need to enjoy your stay is included. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, a cooler and boogie boards in the room. The only thing you need to bring are your swim suits and snorkels. I can't tell you how much we appreciated this. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, etc., and the size/layout was perfect for an active family of four. We used the barbecue grills which are located very near the unit, and we loved eating on the deck overlooking the ocean. The A/C in the bedrooms was very much needed as it was incredibly hot during our stay. The owner and manager were incredibly responsive and helpful. There are tons of great restaurants and cute shopping nearby, and we were able to make it to every part of the island easily from this location. We loved Na Pali Riders and hiking to Hanakapiai Falls. The condo is just a tad bit dated, but we fully expected that given the great price for this size and location. It is also pretty hot during the day in the living and kitchen areas, but we weren't there much during the day and weren't too bothered by it. We loved relaxing at night with wifi and Netflix, and our bedrooms were nice and cool for sleeping at night. The pool and spas looked very nice but we didn't use them. We never found it to be too loud at night, and the beds/linens were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend!

Overall the place was great! Great location and plenty of space for two couples traveling together.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo right on the water and short drive from poipu beach. The views from the Lanai were incredible. We had plenty of space in the unit for two couples. We took advantage of the beach chairs, beach towels and cooler. That really helped with our trips to the beach. The pool and hot tub area was a plus too. The only downside was the AC situation. As stated in the listing, there is a fee for two units and setup fee. There was some miscommunication between the owners and Evelyn (condo manager). She was very responsive and because maintenance was not available she had to come over and try to install the units in the bedrooms. We did not have it fully resolved until the second night. One room was very hot and we did get refunded some money for this inconvenience. If you are someone who likes AC in the whole place then there may be better options. If you enjoy the ocean breezes then it is perfect. Once the units worked properly and with fans, the rooms were pretty cool. Like I said, everything else was awesome! We enjoyed it and had a great time. You can't beat the location! Thank you Sean and Kristy!

Sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful. Quiet. Restful. Singing birds. Crashing waves. "Sigh", paradise.

We stayed at the condo for a couple weeks. We were nervous to see construction next door, but it had little impact on our stay. We loved the location. We often walked to shipwreck beach and it was a short drive to poipu beach. Great central location to visit any spot on the island.

The condo worked well for our needs. The bed in the room at the top of the stairs is excellent. My husband and I both slept well. We utilized the kitchen for meals and often ate out on the patio. Loved having the washer and dryer.

You must try Jo Jo's shaved ice! So yummy.

The Beach House had the best fish I've ever had.

Poipu Beach is wonderful for spotting monk seals and turtles.

Open door helicopter tour by Mauna Loa is awesome!

Thanks to Sean and Kristy for sharing their piece of heaven with us. ❤️

Great Place to Stay on Kauai

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at 1306 Makahuena March 30 - April 7, 2017. It was a great place to stay! It had 2 king size beds with full bathrooms attached. The master bedroom had a view of the ocean, so we could hear the waves crashing as we went to sleep at night which was very relaxing. There were a couple nights where people were violating the quiet hours policy and enjoying the pool rather loudly, but other than that the sleeping arrangements were great for the adults.

The kid's bedroom was a little noisier, specifically with the swarms of birds that seemed to enjoy the trees outside their windows. But the kids seemed to have no problems falling / staying asleep.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, tupperware, and everything needed to make a few meals (nice, since you can expect to spend $50+ for meals for a family of four pretty much everywhere you eat on Kauai). My only complaint there was that there was no salt.

The lanai was really nice. We ate our breakfasts out there and would sit there looking for whales (we didn't really see any from the lanai; they seemed to like the east side of the island a bit more while we were there).

Location was great - you were at most 1 hour from anywhere you wanted to go (west or north) on the island. It was a great "home base" for exploring.

They had beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, tennis rackets and balls, sunscreen, bug spray (we bought a whole can and left it, but you probably won't need it) and boogie boards for your use. They actually had 4 boogie boards, but they weren't necessarily in the best condition, one was foam for a little kid, and 2 others had the wrist strap broken off and were kinda dented. I'm blaming the poor condition of these as my excuse for why I couldn't seem to catch a wave, anyway. :)

My only complaint in general would be that with the policy of keeping the doors and windows shut while you're away made the place rather hot in the evenings. They had plenty of fans that you could position to get the breeze flowing through and get it cooled relatively quickly. But it would have been nice to leave the lanai open for the day (it was on the 3rd floor, so no worries about anyone breaking in, and the overhang would have prevented any water from entering except maybe in a very heavy wind).

Running out of space for the review so a couple quick summaries: no real issue with construction noise, no roaches (our friends at Poipu Sands had an issue with those), BBQ grills are nice, great hosts!

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!
