Nice roomy condo with a really nice open space off of the back patio. Good location from a couple of the beaches and walking distance to a few nice restaurants. We never used the pool but it also was close to the condo. I would highly recommend this unit
The location of this condo was a perfect, beautifully decorated 1 minute to the pool a short walk to the beach on beautiful grounds also a great bar restaurant a short walk away.The condo was very spacious and clean, worked great for 2 couples.The kitchen was well equipped not missing a thing. We enjoyed the 2 beach chairs and 2 boogie boards, a great addition would be a beach cooler. We would defiantly come back.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending my cousin's grandson's wedding nuptials on shipwreck beach at sunset. I was incredibly blessed that my kids were able to come with me on my dream "bucket list" vacation to Hawaii. We stayed at Poipu Kai - Makanui 5. Our condo was spacious, so clean and comfortable, a home away from home. Our condo was also 20 feet from a pool! Makanui 5 had every amenity I could think of! (They even had a mixmaster). Just watch out for snails at night! They're all over! . Thank you Makanui 5 for your gracious hospitality! Aloha!
We spent 5 nights here while on Kauai. Online booking through Suite Paradise was easy, with lots of pictures and descriptions to help with the selection process. This unit is on the second floor, and offers two lanais - something we couldn't tell for sure from the description - one with a pool view and one with an ocean view. (It's not an expansive ocean view, but you can see the water.) It's a 10-15 minute walk from Poipu beach, and there are at least 3 places to eat within that distance.
The condo came equipped with the usual hotel amenities, plus laundry facilities, which came in handy, and a full kitchen. The bathroom was even had two sinks. Having a second lanai was also useful, to avoid the hot sun depending on time of day. There is no A/C but we didn't miss it at all. Ceiling fans everywhere and lots of windows. Designated parking space.
The staff at Suite Paradise were also great. Our flight left at 8:30PM and they gave us towels and a pool key when we checked out so we could shower (outdoors) and change in the rest room before our flight. On our previous trip to Kauai we stayed at Kiahuna Plantation via Outrigger. We thought that condo was great; this one was even better.

This unit was perfect for our purposes. The condo was well appointed and the kitchen was well outfitted. We were literally right across from Lawai Beach which had terrific snorkeling--actually the best that we had during our stay. Florence's instructions and recommendations were flawless and saved us hours of trial and error finding things. We are already planning our return trip. You CANNOT go wrong with this rental!
