This condo complex, Makahuena, is located right on The Point at Poipu. Poipu is on the south part of Kauai, I have stayed on Kauai many times and Poipu is my favorite area to stay. It is usually sunny in Poipu. Makahuena is very close to beaches, restaurants, shops & golf. The resort sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean.... More

These condos don't enforce anything. The pool and hot tub close at nine but they are used well beyond that. Also the pool and hot tub are dead center of all the condos so it is like like being at a rock concert in your condo VERY NOISY. Another drawback is the parking lot is on the other side and... More

When reviewing a property, I bear in mind the locale, value according to locale and understanding of my intended use. With that said, this served our purpose well and perhaps give it a 3.5 rating if able. I also had service rating of 3 as this is not a property with tons of amenities, but staffing was adequate for needs.... More

My family and I had the the second floor 3 bedroom condo and it was spacious. We also had made service and washer and dryer for our clothes. Had some normal amenities which included kitchen, dishwasher, cooking needs, and such. Close by the neighboring beaches, shops, and activities and some great nearby towns. The downside were too many to mention... More

We stayed at Makahuena from 9/6-9/13/2014. It was our second time to stay in this condo #5201. We rented through ParrishKauai and had a great experience. This condo sits on a bluff on the southern most tip of Kauai about 30 feet from the ocean, how perfect. The condo has an L-shaped Lanai with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. So... More

We had a wedding party of 5 and this was the only place that was spacious enough at a good price that would accommodate. The townhouse slept up to 8 people, 2 1/2 baths, kitchen, patio, and a good size living room. The unit we stayed was dated (early 90's). I'm not sure if all of the units are the... More

The 2 br condo was clean, big and a nice view from the lanai but the furniture was well used. The staff was super great. The grounds were kept up every day and very nice. They are doing a lot of construction so sometimes it was a bit noisy. This is not a smoker friendly place the smoking area was... More

We stayed in an upstairs unit overlooking the pool and ocean. Our unit was updated and decorated nicely. The condo was well stocked with supplies. The staff was polite and helpful. The coffee maker broke and the staff quickly replaced it so we didn't miss our morning coffee. The full size washer and dryer were so helpful to our family.... More
