Our family loves this property. We have stayed here twice. Once over the Christmas holiday and just recently this summer. The view from the lanai is superb. There is a lot of space for a big family and they supply many items to make your stay feel like home (beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, fully stocked kitchen, etc.). Our family... More

This unit is a great place to be. We were there in June and every time, within 15 minutes of being on the Lanai there were turtles to be seen just beyond the breaking waves. Big open floor plan. Open and airy. Nice kitchen with everything you need to cook. Some snorkelling gear and boogy boards as well in the... More

Amazing view! Turtles hanging out right in front of you every day. This unit, or any other 3rd floor units (B3, C3, D3, etc) have the best view, where you see the ocean and much of the rocky beach below. First floor units can only see ocean, and also have people walking in front of them frequently (one of the... More

There are a few other condos along Pe'e Road that appear to have comparable views, so I suspect that any one of them would be excellent choices, as long as you can be assured ocean front. Let me assure you that every unit at Poipu Makai is indeed ocean front! We rented through Parrish Collection. You can also find units... More

I stayed in this Condo for 2 weeks back in June and had a wonderful time. It was spacious, comfortable and right on the ocean. The view from the lanai is spectacular! The kitchen is newly updated and we really enjoyed cooking our meals there. The condo is also extremely convenient to shopping and dining.

We booked this through The Parrish Collection and found them to be on the ball, making sure we had no issues. This condo has changed the way I will travel. No more crowded hotels. For less money than a 4 or 5 star hotel, we were right on the ocean in a well appointed 2 bedroom spacious condo. I will... More

The views are amazing - nothing like waking up and seeing a pod of dolphins while drinking coffee! The grounds of Poipu Makai were well maintained, but the pool was a bit of a joke - slightly larger than a large hot tub - they should actually just make it a hot tub, would make a whole lot more sense....

Rented unit B3 through the Parrish Collection, LLC. Everyone at Parrish was simply AWESOME. Joanne set up our rentals (two condos different parts of Kauai). Pat organized tickets for events and provided information and spot on directions for various activities. We knew we would arrive late after about 24 hours of travel what with flight time, delays, and lay-overs. I... More

We stayed in unit A1 and were greeted with a pod of spinner dolphins and some whale spouts within five minutes of walking in. The view cannot be beaten! We stayed at Poipu Makai with another couple for a week, and it was just what we needed. It was comfortable and clean with plenty of room for four; furnishings are... More

I'm sure all the other reviews lead with the great view from the lanai, but there is a reason for that. It's absolutely breathtaking in an unambiguously good way. We were able to see dolphins and turtles from our own home. The attached picture is from the living room window! The unit was decently furnished and spacious. No air conditioning,... More
