Makahuena in Poipu on Kauai is where you can watch the sun rise and set because you are at the southernmost point of the island. Makahuena provides you with a plethora of activities with its own tennis court, jet spa and swimming pool. When the sun goes down, make good use of the barbeque area or cook in the fully equipped kitchen and dine on your private lanai with beautiful ocean views.
Makahuena vacation condo rentals are within walking distance to Poipu Beach Park and Brenneckes Beach. Poipu Beach was named by Trip Advisor as Travelers Choice 2013 Top 25 Beaches. Just minutes away, this world famous beach offers a beautiful spot perfect for swimming, snorkeling or laying out in the sunshine. While snorkeling in Poipu, you will discover a variety of colorful fish, including the state fish--Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. There is a wading lagoon for toddlers and young swimmers. Poipu Beach also has a large grassy park with children's play area, picnic area, showers and restrooms. Brenneke's Beachside Deli, across the street, offers cold drinks, snacks, and the South Shore's most popular shaved ice! Stop by the deli for delicious sandwiches, all kinds of snacks and treats, and the cool relief of shaved ice.
Stroll down on an ocean front pathway to Shipwreck Beach and watch the sunrise or climb the Mahaulepu Coastal Trail, which begins just beyond the beach. This trail is a special part of the Kauai History Heritage site and the last stretch of accessible coastline on the South Shore that has not been developed. This wonderful coastal hike takes you across a variety of terrain, from small sand dunes to sandstone pinnacles and even a sinkhole cave. The area provides a safe haven for marine life, such as sea turtles and the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. The trail leads to beautiful Mahaulepu Beach, a great place to spot whales in the winter or observe (from a distance) a monk seal napping on the beach.
Shipwrecks fronts the Grand Hyatt Kauai where you can wander around the lush tropical gardens or indulge in a reviving treatment at the world-class Anara Spa. This lovely setting lets you easily explore the natural wonders of our Garden Isle of Kauai, as well as dine at several delightful restaurants or enjoy the galleries and shops. Treat yourself to one of Kauai's best luaus, featuring authentic dance, events and cuisine.
Makahuena is just a few miles from historic Koloa Town, the site of the first sugar plantation in Hawaii. The buildings have been authentically restored and now contain quaint shops and small Kauai restaurants. Be sure to stop at Koloa History Center in the middle of town to learn more of the areas fascinating past. Koloa Town is also where you will find grocery stores, a bank, gas station and the post office.

The condo complex is in a great location and in general was in reasonable upkeep. Unit 2305 seemed quite unkept and had a number of issues. Had trouble with both the refrigerator and the washing machine. The front door is broken and was difficult to operate.
Thank you for submitting a review. I was surprised to see that you didn't enjoy the unit as the owner keeps it up very well and we usually get very positive feedback. Unfortunately the front door is an issue and is in the works to be replaced. Since it is an association responsibility it takes longer and is more difficult for us to replace because we don't have any control over it. We have since made sure that both the fridge and washer are working properly. Sorry that you had any problems during your stay but I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful island.

Great condo with plenty of room and very clean. The property was well cared for with a beutiful location on the ocean. Communication and service with Great Vacation resorts was extremely helpful. Would rent with them again.

The unit was clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped including beach chairs and boogie boards. The location was convenient and as nice as promised. The rental agency's (Great Vacation Retreats) service - not so good. They didn't inform us ahead of time that the pool/hot tub was closed for maintenance for 2 weeks. The phone didn't work while we were there. And the locks and the key in the lock box had been changed, but the keys inside the unit were old. We were almost locked out on the Friday evening we arrived. At least the agency reimbursed me for the cost of making 2 new keys, but they didn't seem very concerned, and didn't offer any discount for the lack of expected pool facilities.
Thank you for writing a review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the property. I am very disappointed to hear that you were not happy with our service. I remember the office talking to you on a few occasions regarding the pool and that the neighboring property had giving their pool for guests to use for the few days that the pool was not available during the last part of your stay. I am also sorry that you were not notified of the closure. We often don't know of the closures until they happen and they also change frequently so we are very sorry for that inconvenience.
Thank you for expressing your concerns over the keys. We have since had our maintenance staff check keys at all properties to make sure that doesn't happen again.

This condo was better than the pictures shown.
Great view,roomy, comfortable, newly remodeled, great location.
Master bedroom is huge and its bathroom is great. Beautiful kitchen,too.
Everything you need was provided.
Going back in Feb 2014, but, alas, this unit was already booked.
5 star rating. Loved it!!!
If you go, be sure to check out the path that leads down to
the Makahauena arch--just 200 feet from the building.
“Loved the spacious, well-stocked condo with the wonderful ocean”

We really appreciated having some snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, and a cooler in the closet. (Could have used a bigger cooler, though.) Also, the starter pack of soap and paper products, and the beach towels were great. Check-in and the car rental went very smoothly. Poipu was a good location to drive to beaches. We'd love to come back sometime!
