While the location of this property does offer the only place on the island you can view both sunrise and sunset I cannot recommend it for comfort. Firstly there is NO air conditioning here. Regardless of the ocean breeze coming in through the windows, it was too hot to sleep at night because you have to close the windows to... More

Our family rented three units over Christmas 2014. The units were generally well equipped and comfortable even though some looked a little tired. Location is unsurpassed - close to the point with fantastic sea views. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Grounds and pool well maintained.

This was our first trip to Kauai and the Castle was recommended by our travel agent. We will not be using that travel agent again nor will we stay at this place again. While I understand each unit is individually owned, we had a very outdated and drab unit. The carpet was faded and stained, their was mold on the... More

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

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
