We were so excited when we arrived at the Makai Club Cottages. The rooms are so spacious. Beautiful views from several windows and Lanai's. The kitchen was very nice and had just the right amount of space. The bedrooms were awesome, beds very comfortable. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. We can't wait to visit again!!

We stay in timeshare units all the time. So, this one was on par with many we have stayed in. The reviews were not as good as the other places on Kauai but we booked late. We were totally fine with our unit. And they were very helpful at the front desk. It's a small community and not a ton... More

Our stay here was great! It was a little difficult to find with the back gate closed but overall it was wonderful. It's close to Hanelai and a beautiful drive from Lihue. The room was clean and updated, and it was great to have a full kitchen and washer and dryer in the unit. I would stay here again!

We recently inherited a week at the Makai Club Cottages as a timeshare, and just made our first visit. The Cottages are nice and spacious, with a lot of cross breezes in lieu of air conditioning, but the kitchens get very very hot. We did all our cooking outdoors on the beautiful gas BBQs, which are nicely equipped. The pool... More

One bedroom, living room (with a pull out bed in couch), kitchen, two flat screen TVs, balcony, and a nice bathroom. Overall it was a great space and pretty property.

There is certainly something to be said about Kauai’s North Shore, which is home to incredible sunsets, rich tropical foliage, and the breathtaking expanse of the Pacific Ocean stretching out to the horizon.
