we recently stayed at poipu makai and had a wonderful time! the place was perfect for us - plenty of space, well stocked, very clean, totally family-friendly (we were 4 adults and 4 small kids) - sleeping arrangements were perfect. the view is spectacular - literally live entertainment every day with whales and sea turtles frolicking just off our balcony. the condo is centrally located so it's a quick drive to many local destinations (secluded beaches, "baby beach", restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) - great access to everything. the only drawback (which we knew in advance) is that there isn't a whole lot of outdoor space for kids to wander around easily accessible. but the small pool area and breathtaking view more than makes up for it. we'd literally be looking for our 3 year old daughter and find her sitting on the balcony by herself soaking up the view. highly recommend this for travelers with or without family. we welcome the opportunity to go back!
