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

I am allergic to feathers and the furniture cushions were down -- oh well. very nice property and rooms, well kept, pool is clean and nice to use great walks around... 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

The castle Makahuena condominium resort is in a very beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. It is wonderful to watch the sea turtles feeding below. Sunsets are magnificent. This is the second time our family has stayed at this resort. The pool, pool deck and hot tub are well maintained and very clean. The group barbeque area is a great place... More

We loved our ocean front unit - in building 5. The first day here we saw turtles, spinner dolphins and even humpback whales breaching! Spectacular. Overall a great value and location is close to beaches for swimming (although a short walk or car ride away).

From the moment we walked into room 4205, we were so pleased with the wooden decor, stunning corner ocean and private view, as well as all the little extras like iPod player with hawaiian music cued up, games for all ages, and a fully stocked and spacious condo. Beautiful grounds, located in the sunniest pocket of kauai- poipu was magnificent.... More

With the many different condo sites to choose from, why choose an old place? Each unit is individually owned - some nicely furnished/maintained , others not. Outside boxing a ad landscaping are funky looking........ Fuggetabout dis place Bra.

Aloha! Thank you for sharing your comments, we do appreciate your input. Unfortunately Castle doesn’t manage the exterior of the complex and has no control on outside condition of the buildings. However, I will definitely share your comments to the association. I understand, the new management is gradually making steps to improve the outside façade of the property. More
