Very nice 2 bdrm place with fully stocked kitchen, big table outside and killer view. Green turtles hanging out in front of place all 4 days. Boogy boards, beach chairs and cooler for day trips. Brennekie's rest. a must.
“Pounding surf and outstanding views”
The place for someone not into sand and beaches who enjoys ocean sites/sounds and gorgeous sunsets. It's an older unit so not luxurious. Master bedroom slider and screen most difficult to try to open so I didn't. There is a CD player in the unit but it doesn't work. The point is the view! 2 separate areas to enjoy outside, a covered lanai with table and chairs and partially covered "bistro" area. Peaceful. Hated to leave!
We truly enjoyed our week at this condo. The views are absolutely amazing! We loved having our coffee each morning looking out at the ocean and watching the whales. Every day we also saw turtles and one day we saw a manta ray. The location was great, just a short five minute drive to the beaches, and we also walked to the beach and resort areas each morning for exercise. Some of the comments for this resort slammed the small pool behind the condos. We found it to be nice and very well kept. It is on the small size but the water was cool and refreshing and was perfect for cooling down. If you are looking for a big fancy pool, you need to stay at a large resort and pay the large resort prices. We enjoyed being on the bottom floor and being able to walk out on the lawn for more space and viewing areas. We did have two warm days that the trade winds were not blowing and the living room area did get pretty warm. However, we did have the option of getting in the pool to cool off, or you can always hang out in the bedrooms under the ceiling fans and read or watch TV if you find the living room a bit warm (the bedrooms are more shaded and cooler). My husband and I were fine, but we also brought my husbands mom (she's 75)and she was a bit uncomfortable while it was so warm and there is no a/C just the ceiling fans which are usually just fine. What makes these units so great is that they are southwest facing so the views are great, but you do have alot of late afternoon/evening sun and heat gain thru the windows. The summer months, June, July and august could be a little warm here. The new flat screen Tv's were great, the kitchen was wonderful. We would stay here again in a minute, and you can't beat the price for what you are getting and the view!
“Great location with no supervision”
Our unit was clean and we enjoyed the location. However, there is no office or supervision on site, and during our stay some units were occupied by loud neighbors who shouted as late as 3am. On the days they were not there it was delightful, but being unable to sleep was a problem.
One of my favorite things in Kaua'i was... the view from Poipu Makai D-1. It's really priceless to be able to have breakfast looking at the ocean, or having a cold beer (or smoothie)admiring the beautiful Hawaiian sunset. Not to mention that we saw two giant sea turtles (in one day!)very close to the shore from the rocky area attached to the condo. Regarding the condo itself, everything was good, the kitchen area is very comfortable, the fans kept the rooms cool (we were there in May though, not sure how it would be in July). The bathtub and shower curtain in the guest bathroom could be updated. But overall our experience was fantastic!!
Response from the manager Mahalo for your review. We do agree that the view is beautiful with the ocean and sunsets are awesome! In September 2013 we will have new furnishings and also both bathrooms will be upgraded! We are excited to see the changes!
“This was a prefect honeymoon getaway!”
I will say that when I come back to Kauai, I will try desperately to rent this condo again. I stayed there for 8 days on my honeymoon. The pictures posted for this property do it no justice. The view is stunning! My impression is that this lovely little place is very clean and nicely appointed. The master bedroom is located on the interior of the property which has a nice garden view, as does the guest bedroom. Both beds are queen size. The master has its own full bathroom. There is another bathroom located off of the living room. The kitchen is just like you would have at home, with a fridge, microwave, oven, stove, plates, silverware, etc. Both porches are nice and spacious. One has a small table and two comfortable chairs, and the other has a table and chairs for outside dining. it also has new cabinets and granite countertops. The nice thing about this place are the details. There are plenty of towels (and beach towels), two ice chests, two beach mats (that we purchased and left for future travelers), and many other wonderful little things. There are plenty of windows, and the trade winds flow nicely from the back of the house to the front. One can hear the ocean crashing from the living room. I'd estimate the water is no more than 15 yards from the rocky beach. Shopping, restaurants, and the beach are all very short drives. You can even walk to Poipu beach from the unit. The furniture is first rate, sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. I really have nothing negative at all to say about the property at all other than the parking garage is just a little bit tricky. I didn't hear any noise from the neighboring condos. There is a nice little pool and a great grill in the garden area. If you are staying on the south shore, this is definitely the place to be. I'd say its about 1,500 square feet and a pretty open floorplan. Again, pictures do it no justice. The place is bigger than the pictures and so is the view!
Response from the manager Mahalo for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Poipu Makai D1 and what a perfect place to have a honeymoon! We look forward to having you back!
“Poipu Makai D-1 is amazing!!”
This condo was absolutely amazing. The view is unreal...I spent all my time out on that patio. 2 couples stayed in this condo for 5 nights and it was the perfect amount of space...kitchen is nice and well equipped, bedrooms are nice, bathrooms nice, living space is great, washer and dryer worked great, easy to take trash to dumpsters...everything is great!! I will for sure be staying here again. We didn't use the pool...we used the grill one night which was very nice. Poipu beach is a quick 5 minute walk away, Poipu shopping village a short 15 minute walk, Brennicke's 10 minutes away...great location. The rental company was very nice and prompt with confirmations and what have you. All in all, excellent experience!!!
Response from the manager Mahalo for your review and we look forward to having you back! Poipu sunsets are fantastic!
“Lovely rental unit on the oceanfront”
We rented this unit for a one week vacation to Kauai. This was our second visit to the island and thus we already knew exactly what we wanted. We took her to teach kids along and having the condo unit was a fantastic opportunity. The unit was well furnished the kitchen was recently redone and very well-equipped all the requisite towels and linens were in excellent condition. The management company was very accommodating and at receptive to our needs. The unit has a lovely lanai that faces the ocean and has incredible sunset sighting opportunities. For wildlife fans, the sea turtles make constant appearances on the beach right in front of the condominium. We enjoyed being in this location immensely. Poipu Beach is an excellent location to vacation in Kauai. It is near the Poipu beach park, has excellent shopping and amenities around and is accessible to major roads without any problems.
Response from the manager We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Poipu Makai D1. One of my favorite aspects of this condo is the beautiful Poipu shoreline view and now the newly remodeled kitchen!! We look forward to having you back!
This unit was perfect for us as we don't want a luxury accomodation. Yet was very clean and comfortable and we didn't feel we needed to worry about coming back from the beach with sand on our shoes with the tile floor. Very relaxing but not so nice you were afraid of breaking something.
Response from the manager Mahalo! We are glad to hear you enjoyed staying at Poipu Makai. The sunset and the view off of the lanai to the ocean is to die for! We do hope you'll be back! September 2012: Happy to report that new Owner has renovated this unit. We not have fresh paint, new living room and bedroom furniture and a beautifully remodeled kitchen!
“great location and view, could use updateing”
positives; location, view, clean ,well equiped. negatives; small pool, a bit of a walk to beaches. Overall more than adequate and reasonably priced
Response from the manager Mahalo for your review. Glad to hear that the condo was clean and well equipped. The location is incredible as you have great sunset views with the ocean spashing just below! This unit is not on the beach front ; thus there is a walk down to Poipu or Brenneckes Beach or a 3 minute drive. 2012 Update: We have new furnishings, new kitchen with granite counter tops, new bedding! Just beautiful!
