Super location & great condo
Stephanie H. from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 We were delighted with our stay. A great location for families, peaceful & quiet. Our condo was large with 3 bedrooms & 2 bathroom which was perfect for our family of four or more. Large washer & drier, and dishwasher were convenient. We could watch the sunset from our deck, we also could see whales breaching in the distance. We were extremely happy with our stay ??
Deb S. from Bloomingon, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2016 Awesome! Great view, had everything we needed, beach chairs, coolers, and umbrellas! Loved that kitchen. Perfect for our party of 6.
Angela R. from Saint Paul, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2016 My family of 5 and I had a fabulous time staying at this property. Everything was there that we could possibly need! Close walk to Brenneke and Poipu beach. Beautiful sunsets from the property grounds. My three little boys really enjoyed the pool. Everything in the condo is clean and updated. One warning - no Air Conditioning. This isn't usually a problem in Hawaii, but if you are people who need it, this is not the spot for you. We had no issues without Air Conditioning, plenty of fans/ceiling fans!
A guest from Oregon, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2015 My wife and I stayed at this rental with our daughter's family including 10 and 12 year old grandkids. It was a great condo- clean, comfortable, well stocked with everything that you might need, good condition, nice pool and hot tub, tennis court, right on aq great hiking trail, excellent views of whales, turtles, and dolphins, very helpful staff, on-site handyman who seems able to fix anything. If we had the money and lived closer, we would buy it.
A guest from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015 Clean and spacious, well equipped, great views of the ocean from the balcony. We really liked the kitchen - several of us could cook together, and our group og 8 fitted around the nice granite table-counter. The 5-way shower in the master bath was fun. It's a older building, no a/c. NB: do not park under a coconut tree! Our windshield took a direct hit.
Dustin G. from Lawson, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2015 What a place! wonderful location. Poipu is the best area to stay in. Food, nightlife and everything one needs and wants in a vacation get away. Don't forget to try the shaved ice in Koala Town!
James W. from San Francisco, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in September, 2015 We have been coming to Poipu for 30 years Air flow in a unit is very important. Though the trade winds were blowing, our unit had no air flow. According to.one of the neighbors that building is known for a lack air flow in the units. We even paid $50 for a fan because there was only one.
Nice, fully equipped Kauai south coast Rental BUT...
A guest from ROWLAND HEIGHTS, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 It IS a beautiful condo and with normal warm and humid Hawaii weather it would've been perfect. There us NO A/C here. Unfortunately, this year is the El Niño year (extreme heat wave) and the humidity felt like it's x10.
A guest from Mission Viejo, California recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in August, 2015 Very nice accomodations. Everything worked out well. Very responsive management. No air conditioning was not a problem for us.
Glenn K. from Avon Lake, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 When we arrived, the condo was in good condition and pleasantly more spacious than anticipated. The location in Poipu was good, and the grounds were close to the ocean, a short drive to the beach, safe, and quiet. Parking was easy. From our home base we were able to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, quick trips to the grocery store, and dining.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 We throughly enjoyed our stay and time in Kauai. It made for a great home base- full kitchen and all the supplies we needed, comfortable beds, and a great pool/hot tub. The only negative thing was the lack of air conditioning. It was very hot and the place never really cooled down, even at night. Other than that we had an excellent stay!
Gary C. from Goleta, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 The place was beautiful, and clean. Our family had a great time. The beach items (boogie boards, snorkles, umbrellas) all came in handy. Thank you for a great experience.
Yoko I. from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Everyone was very happy to stay at there, location and building. only two things we have to say,1)The hard wood floor in kitchen area was very dusty and dirty, so we sweep them when we checked in.2)The line of one single bed was mold smell, it looks they put the bed before completely dry the linens, my gust couldn't sleep in the bed at first night because the rotten smell. we washed it next day, then it was all good.a house cleaner might be busy and it's done quicklythen caused it.it was a little disappointed, but rather that, it's all good, we had a good time and still not enough time at Kauai.
John W. from West Kelowna, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in February, 2015 Kauai is now are favorite island. The Condo was very nice and well maintained. We would stay again. The beach is a little hike but well worth it.
A guest from San Luis Obispo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 Condo was clean, nice, and in a great location. It is nice to have three bedrooms, laundry, and a pool. The kitchen was great to cook and have meals around. We used the pool every night but they are very strict about being out at 9pm. Also, the condo has a lot of rules. We got a notice on the door because we had out towels hanging over the railing to dry. The only reason I docked it a star is because it does not come with air conditioning which was unpleasant on very hot days, and the internet did not work for the first two days which i did indicate ahead of time was important for me to have. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and the location, and having a washer and dryer was an amazing perk!
James H. from El Centro, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2014 The place was adequate for the money..You can tell it is a rental because the place is pretty beat up. However the complex has a nice pool and is centrally located in Poipu.
Shawn G. from Goodyear, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2014 We stayed at Makahuena in Poipu for two weeks, it is a great place to stay. To wake up and fall asleep seeing the ocean was a breath of fresh air as we wake up seeing desert sand. It is in a great location close to shopping,resturants,and things to do. The only problem we had was, the condo is up for sale! I had a realitor call me on my cell phone wanting to show it while we were 4 days into our vacation stay. I emailed the property management company and expressed my concerns with letting someone come thru while we were there. The response I got from them was great "absolutely not!" She got on the phone with the realitor and the owner of the condo and let them both know that they needed to wait till we were done with the condo and that will not happen again! Other than that my visit to Makahuena 2202 was a great place, would rent the condo again if it is not sold the next time we visit Kauai.
Malcolm S. from Millarville, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 Poipu is a great place to vacation. This property is a little dated but the unit was partially upgraded. Unfortunately the, very large master shower, was slow to drain so if you weren't quick, the bathroom would flood. The other bathroom had limited water pressure. When we went to the front desk to tell them they said they did not look after the property and had no contact information for who ever did look after the property. We had to deal with ants and a very large beetle of some sort that turns you off a bit. The furniture was not that comfortable but we did not spend much time in the room so it was fine. I would say this is an average place to stay in Hawaii. Nice but certainly not top end.
A guest from Aptos, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 I've been to Kauai dozens of times over the years. I find that the Makahuena in general is a substandard complex. This unit in particular looked nice on the surface, but we had major problems w Wifi. Maintenance called but did not fix it. Basically, Cell phone devices are unusable. Dishwasher was funky. In addition- No complementary soap products are provided in baths or shower. They Could have had at least small sample bars of soap. Overall can not recommend. For the price point not a good value.
Marcia M. from Calgary, AB does not recommend this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2014 The positives - the view is great and the size of the condo is good for 4 adults and 2 kids. The negatives - lots of broken stuff (toaster, no phone or internet,living room chair, dishwasher, lamp). The place is really worn and needs updating. There is no seating in the living room. The place is very hot and there is no breeze. We tried to contact the rental agency and no one called us back. The tennis court lights are broken and we had no water for two of the days and they sprayed for bugs one of the days. There are lots of nice places in Poipu, this is not one of them.
A guest from Farmington Hills, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 This was a great property. For us everything was in working order except the dish washer didn't dry that well. The property had a great balcony with a great view, I could see whales and the sunset from sitting there. The hot tub and pool were awesome but close at 9pm. Restaurants were about a ten min drive. I thought the beach was a little too far to walk, but the property came with boogie boards, chairs, and snorkels. I would recommend this place for families - I don't think it was that romantic of a place, but the 5 people I went with enjoyed their own rooms and loved the large kitchen. Most applicants were there, smoothie maker, pots, pans, Tupperware etc.
A guest from Bellingham, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 The location, view, grounds, and quiet setting are excellent. Internet hookup was difficult with very few prompts to help us. Beds were comfortable. Some dishes were missing so we all couldn't eat out of bowls at once. The main difficulty was the heat and I'm a lover of heat. The condo faces west and the sun floods the main room quite literally until it drops below the horizon. There are sun shades which do very little except make you feel as if you are in a cave. It is impossible to sit on the patio at this time of day. I'm not sure what the answer to this problem would be...perhaps another shade outside at the edge of the patio or a small air conditioner to just take the edge off? So while I said "yes I would recommend the property," I would explain this phenomena to a friend. It really was unbearable except on the cloudy rainy days.
Ellen L. from Loveland, Colorado does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2014 I submitted a review right after the trip. I guess you guys didn't get it. We had all kinds of maintenance issues at the condo. On the first day, the door to the kids' room fell off its hinges. My husband is a carpenter and did a temporary repair. The dishwasher was not installed correctly, and the whole thing fell forward each time the door was opened. Also, the bottom rack of the dishwasher had to be man-handled to get it out for loading dishes. We had to listen to tree trimming noise for 3 days straight. The master bedroom bed was horribly uncomfortable. I think it's time for a new mattress!! We both slept in "holes" because of the mattress' broken down condition.
Erik A. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2013 This condo was great. Very modern interior and comfortable bedding. Also the rental had snorkel equipment, a few boogie boards, chairs, coolers and umbrellas. These extras really made days at the beach more enjoyable.
Lysa T. from Happy Valley, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2013 Our family really liked our condo unit facing the water and Poipu is definitely our favorite spot in Kauai! However, we were a little disappointed in certain items in the condo that were in poor condition. Actually, all of the units on the outside could use an overhaul...they look very dated! Our dishwasher was not installed properly to the wood framing. Every time you opened it, the whole unit would start to fall forward and the bottom rack would not glide on the track properly. Quite frustrating since we used it a several times. We also think the condo should have an additional couch or more comfortable chairs to sit in the living room on. They were uncomfortable and our family of 5 had a hard time all fitting comfortably when sitting in that room. The master bathroom slider door didn't have a working handle or lock which seemed like an easy fix to us.One other thing, we found two cockroaches, one in each back bedroom. Needless to say, our kids were a bit freaked out to go back in those rooms for the remainder of our stay. We did have an enjoyable stay, just feel there should be some improvements, especially with the dish washer and bug issues.
kelly f. from Kelowna, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2013 We were very happy with our condo at Makahuena! It was big enough for the 6 of us to be very comfortable. It had everything we needed for a great vacation, including boogie boards! The kitchen was very well equiped, it even had tupperware so we could pack our lunch's for day trips! Kauai was amazing and we will definately be back!
Judy M. from Homer, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2013 This unit is quite nice affording a view over the pool & one can also see some of the ocean albeit over the rooftop of the condo in front & to the sides of that condo. Big plus is that it is all on one floor which we prize and go out of our way to avoid the dreaded lofts & miles of stairs in other offerings. The dishwasher is dreadful & gives one fits each time the lower basket is moved in & out. Does seem to wash well though. The TV in the master BR does not work. Perhaps the owners can address these issues because they have done a nice job updating all else. We look forward to another stay here. Thanks.
A guest from New Paltz, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 Overall, we enjoyed out stay in Makahuena 2202 and were so pleased that the owners supplied us with boogie boards, coolers and beach towels. Minor inconveniences that can easily be remedied: We were unhappy that when we called maintenance about some minor points, they did not return our calls. We asked that the fluorescent bulb be replaced above the washing machine and they never came. We requested a 12 noon check out, but they never got back to us. There was a dirty towel on the floor when we walked in, the couch was stained, the ice maker did not work, the dish washer was extremely loose,and rocked back and forth. It was difficult to remove the bottom shelf to load dishes. Other than that, the unit was spacious and clean. Mahalo!
A guest from Spokane, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Reading the description for this property lead us to believe that the beach was right out front. Not exactly. There is a beach pretty close by (1 mi on map),but its easier/safer to drive to than to walk. If you plan to go to the beach with chairs, umbrellas etc..its not the easiest walk along the road. The property itself was decent, just had some cosmetic problems. The freezer was all but frozen shut, dryer makes a crazy sound (only run it when youre gone!) The pots and pans are so old you lose half your meal to the 'non stick'. The sliders for the doors are a challenge as well. Every time we tried to go to the pool, it was closed- chemical treatments and limited hours. One day we came back to a maintenance worker in the condo without our knowledge (minor red flag). The good stuff: poipu was a perfect location!,partial ocean view, the property management co was very helpful, plenty of parking at this location, great table/kitchen for lots of people, place was clean, accommodates for 6 people easily, the rocks out front have a nice view of the ocean, they provided more towels, beach gear, and movies than we were aware of. So like I said, could've been worse, but we would probably explore other options for a return stay.
Ron L. from Lewisville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 The condo was like a home away from home in Paradise! Perfect for our family of 4 because we all had our own rooms! The common area was great to have meals, watch movies, and hang out after long days at the beach or sightseeing. The owners thought of everything, the place is well equipped with amenities, utensils, extras for the beach etc. which is why we felt like it was a second home. Great location near Poipu and Brenneke's Beach! The hardwoods made it nice, as well as the shutter blinds to keep out the noise and sun in the morning. Very Chillaxing!
A guest from Olympia, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2013 The location was great for out stay. Beautiful view and comfortable room for our group. BUT the cleanliness of some areas of the room were disgusting. The shower in the master bathroom needs an thorough excessive cleaning. The shower heads and the knobs had greenish/brown slim gunk on them. Their walls in some of the master bathroom and the kitchen area need to be scrubbed if not repainted. Dishwasher needs to be reseeded and it smelled funny. The kitchen was well stocked for needed items. Bathroom in the hallway needed a light fixture above the sink it was not functioning during our stay. Not enough linens provided for the stay.
Gale A. from Cary, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We loved the Poipu Beach area. Everything we needed was within a short walk or drive. Our family of four had a terrific experience.
A guest from Issaquah, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 21 days in April, 2013 2202 has a great view but faces west and has direct sun on the lanai making it very hot and unusable from 2 until 6 pm. Afternoon heat radiates into the unit. No AC. Furniture is dirty and shows much wear and tear, not as it appears in pictures. General disrepair - areas of floor trim is loose, needs paint,dishwasher door broken, washer/dryer malfunctioned. TV sound bar shown in picture is missing. All electronics and many cables and cords exposed left hanging down the wall under TV. Bed linens had holes and many worn areas. Loved the view but not the condition of 2202.
A guest from Allendale, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013 Excellent location, great views, and a good central location for everything from Kapaa to Waimea. Only complaint was the washer and dryer thumping from imbalance.
A guest from Sonoma, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2012 There were a few things not working. THe ice machine did not work, the faucet in the kitchen leaked. There was no WIFI. We only had one roll of paper towels and had to buy more and toilet paper as well. It would have been nice to have those amenities.
Makahuena 2202 would be awesome with just a little work!
Kimberley M. from Newark, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2012 All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Makahuena 2202. The view is beautiful and the grounds are maintained very well. We had some issues with the following: the ceiling fan in the bedroom with the twin beds was broken and it took 4 days to get it replaced which made that room quite hot. The WiFi did not work and we never got any resolution to that problem which made communications/cell phone usage very difficult. The washing machine does not work properly and constantly goes off balance (even with only 2 bath towels in the load). The ice maker in the freezer does not work and the freezer door is quite difficult to open. The dishwasher also did not work. The coffee table in the living room was very worn, I think it might have been leather at one point but most of it was worn off and looked pretty bad. We put a sheet over it so we didn't have to look at it. The counter space in the bathrooms is nonexistant so you have to be a little creative with your toiletries. Other than that, we spent most of the time out of the unit enjoying the beautiful island and the condo was just a place to crash. If the above items were fixed, I would have given this place a fabulous review. But as I said above, plan on spending your time out and about and you'll do just fine!
Wayne B. from Darwin, NT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Had an awesome time in 2202. Loved the location, perfectly quiet and close to everything we needed. A car is helpful but not essential. The condo is very nicely renovated for holiday use and would be one of the nicest units in the complex I would think.
A guest from Wilmette, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Arrived on a Saturday, late evening, only to find Sunday that after washing a load of towels and putting them in the dryer, after 6 hours they still weren't dry. Called on Monday to complain and after having not received a return phone call, had to call again. My brother-in-law went behind the dryer and cleaned out a bunch of lint. Then the washer broke. Repairman did not come until Tuesday and had to order a part and did not replace it until late afternoon Thursday. Then the dryer stopped working again properly. Basically only got to do a few loads of laundry on Friday. Called to complain to the rental company and she was NOT very accommodating or sympathetic to our frustration.
Barbara A. from Royesford, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 We had an incredible time on Kauai and loved the condo. The only problem we had was the wash machine was not working properly for us. Thanks for a great place to stay!
A guest from Portland, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 This condo was beautiful, and had all of the things we needed for our stay. The finishes were artful, simple, and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Our group of 5 had only one problem which was that the walk to Poipu was a bit longer than we'd expected, making it difficult to go to the beach without driving. Since we had our kids with us, the amount of gear we needed to bring to the beach was the main reason for that. We did see groups walking that route, and the only part that seemed problematic was the 1 to 2 block section without sidewalks. Otherwise, our stay was absolutely perfect. Lovely, comfortable, great views. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
Judy O. from Mead, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 47 days in January, 2012 This is the 2nd year we have spent at Makahuena 2202. This year we spent 45 days and every one of those days were wonderful, even during the storms. We are planning for next year already!
A guest from Redwood City, California recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2011 We had an amazing vacation at this condo. Everything was perfect. We had 4 adults and 2 children and everyone was very comfortable.
Kristin O. from Shoreline, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011 We had a great time at the condo. It has most of the supplies that we needed, although it would have been nice to have some cooking basics like oil and a seasoning salt. It also took us awhile to figure out that the condos have a grill area. All of the other documentation stated it didn't. All of the reviews that I had read previously certainly helped me know that it was great. There was one negative review complaining about the cleanliness of the condo. The dark hardwoods and cabinets are beautiful, but they do show scratches, any dirt and blemished in the strong daylight of Hawaii. There didn't seem to be a cleanliness issue. We had a wonderful stay. I loved the ipod players in every room.
John M. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2011 Makahuena 2202 was a really nice unit. Good location in Poipu. Located on the cliffs above the water, but a short walk or drive (we drove) to Poipu beach. This unit is in the second building back from the front, but still has great views. Very nice kitchen and bathrooms and comfortable living room. My only complaint was the lack of AC. For some reason our unit would not always get the coastal breeze and it was hot and humid during the day. At night, it was comfortable.
Debra N. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 Loved our condo! Everything was provided in the kitchen and throughout the property. We had boogie boards, lawn chairs and a cooler which we put to good use all week. Our view was wonderful. Beautiful sunsets.
Amalia M. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 My husband, children, parents-in-law and I traveled to Kauai for a family vacation in August. Accommodations were beautiful - the apartment was luxurious with pool AND ocean views from the lanai. Looked better than the website photos. Location could NOT be beat, close to everything. Ceiling fans and trade winds lulled us to sleep nightly. Would return in a heartbeat. Thanks!
Nicki V. from San Lorenzo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 The freezer drawer has a problem sticking so it doesn't open and close properly. Other than that little glitch, the condo was wonderful and I would stay there again.
A guest from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in June, 2011 Condo was beautiful... dark hardwood floors, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, comfortable beds. Good location..close to Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beach and shops. No AC, but ceiling fans through out and the Trade Winds make it unnecessary for most of the day. (A little warm from 4-6pm.) Complex is well maintained. Pool is average, but well maintained. If you are looking for a quiet, residential, non-hotel experience, then this fits the bill!
The unit was very dirty,i could not get any connections from your internet
Gerard B. from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2011 The unit was very dirty,i could not get any connections from your internet because it required a passcode and when i spoke to a repre ,he never called back like he said he would.I am requesting a refund of 500.00 from your office. The property is about 50% foreclose on and i spoke to owners who said its not going well.I was trying to keep my cool I should have checked into the hyatt next family was very disappointed and then we were asked about some alarm going off ,that turns out was next door. The unit next door 5 construction workers were loud and they let their front door open all nite with tv going.I could go on but ,i believe vrbo will hear about it in detail...refund would be nice ...
kelly s. from edmonton, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 What a cozy great place. We loved staying there. And would go back if we could. Thanks again to Sandy, she was awesome and so easy to deal with.
Catherine C. from South Surrey, B.C. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 I loved waking up in the Master Bedroom and seeing the palm trees and ocean. Beds are extremely comfortable. Condo is very well equipped. It would be nice to have a salad spinner in kitchen. Overall stay was great! I would definitely recommend to a friend.
Sharri A. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2011 The condo was very nicely appointed, the only complaint would be not enough seating in the living area. There were six of us and only 5 could sit comfortably.
Judy O. from Mead, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 43 days in January, 2011 We stayed for 6 weeks, the best 6 weeks ever! Our children and spouses came and plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen and counter were great, much better than having a table. The activity at the pool and ocean were great from the lanai. The only negative I have is no counter space in the bathrooms. We are hoping to stay again next year.
A guest from Berkeley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 There were a few problems with the unit.The lower dishwasher tray does not have a track, thus it was very difficult to move. The screeen door is not anchored well on its track. The hallway bathroom could use some good cleanup and finishing work around floor and ceiling.However, we were happy with the place in general - nice comfortable feeling in rooms and living area.Thank you for the opportunity to stay there.
Veronica R. from Long Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2010 Poipu had the best of everything! Swimming beaches and snorkeling bays. We lucked out and swam with turtles the size of a coffee table. No lie! The property was well manicured and the unit I stayed in was recently renovated. I felt like I was at home! Mahalo!
Great Location, could be perfect with a little work
A guest from Newark, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2010 The condo is in a great location and the Makahuena Point is a perfect location. Morning and evening sunrise/sunsets are beautiful from either the patio or the community viewing area. The pool and grounds are kept clean and maintained well by the friendly and helpful staff.Unit 2202 is very nice and the kitchen has recently been renovated with modern appliances and top-notch materials. All 3 bedrooms and the living area are handsomely furnished with comfortable beds and seating. The design of the apartment allows the trade winds to blow through from end to end providing a wonderful coolness at night as well as the sound of the ocean crashing on the rocks.The negatives are few, but they could be easily fixed and doing so would make this a rental that would be fought over as opposed to simply another nice place to stay. The bathrooms are both in need of remodeling and show signs of age and have a musty smell. The only TV in the unit that worked during our stay was the one in the living room; both of the other two were completely dead (whether you consider that a blessing or curse is up to you). The dishwasher needs to be fixed and has a foul smell. After trying it out one time we opted to hand-wash all dishes. Aside from those few detractors this was a very nice place to stay. I also believe that with a little bit of work all of the above issues could be easily fixed and Makahuena 2202 would be an unbeatable choice for your Kauai vacation.
A guest from Silver Spring, MD does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2010 This condo is near the ocean, but view is somewhat obscured.Main problem is the poor design with limited cross ventilation. It got quite hot, and no A/C.Owners provided no info on where to get basic things, info on unit. TV in master BR did not work.A somewhat long walk to the beach, when you're carrying your stuff.Would not return to this place, although Kauai is lovely.
A guest from Olympia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 Loved the location! Condo had a very well stocked kitchen and nice view to ocean on Linei, loved all the ipod docking staions. Just a few minor things broken, wheel on the dishwasher and handle in master bedroom shower, could also use more towel bars or hooks so you don't have to hang them on the hangers to dry. Overall a very nice place to stay, we enjoyed it very much.
Susan F. from Columbia, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 We had a wonderful time in Kauai, and the apartment was great. It was both clean and comfortable, and there was plenty of room for our family. Sitting on the lanai was great, and the pool was terrific for a quick dip. The apartment was well-stocked with necessities. It was great to have those on hand and not have to go shopping immediately upon arrival. The kitchen was well appointed, and the furniture was both functional and comfortable. Beds, too, were comfortable. However, Nights were a little warm, so air conditioning would have been appreciated. Also, the walk to the beach was a challenge with a stroller and a two-year old.
