A guest from Charnwood, Australian Capital Territory recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in January, 2017 This was great base for our vacation to Kauai. The apartment was clean, well-stocked/furnished, and in an excellent location to explore the island. The rooms were very comfortable and there was plenty of space for our families (4 adults/2 kids). Everyone enjoyed watching whales and dolphins from the lanai in the morning. The complex itself was very relaxed, the other guests and residents were friendly, and the amenities (pool, BBQ) were great. The nightly sunsets were spectacular and great ritual to end the day. The location is ideal and only a short distance from good shopping and food options (we liked Kalapaki Joe's for happy hour and early dinner with the kids and the Hyatt for a romantic drink after dark). Poipu beach (10-15 min walk) was one of our favorite places to visit with great swimming for kids, snorkeling for adults (lots of turtles) and spotting local wildlife on the beach (turtles and monk seals). We would definitely stay at Makahuena again!
A guest from Stanwood, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2016 Four of us stayed here for our annual fall trip and had a wonderful time. The location is amazing. Everything was clean fresh. Had a great time!
A guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 Condo is very nicely decorated and fully stocked with all possible amenities. Location is great, Makahuena property is great. We're repeat visitors, this was our 3rd trip to Makahuena, and we will be coming back.
Beautiful property helped to complete our amazing visit to Kaua'i
Kele K. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016 Our family had such a great time staying at Makahuena. The home was beautiful and stocked with everything we needed, and more! It really felt like our "home away from home". The entire property was beautifully maintained and our kids enjoyed the pool and little hike to the cliff side. We can't wait to come back and stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Kele, we can't wait for you and your family to return to our beautiful island. Thank you for writing such a lovely review.
A guest from Castro Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 Very, very good. Clean, well furnished and equipped, high quality interiors and cabinetry, good cooperation from managers. 5 stars for our family.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Albert, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Makahuena 2203, and we hope to see you again in the near future. Mahalo
A guest from Elk Grove, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 We loved our stay in Kauai. The housekeeper wasn't finished cleaning by 3pm on our arrival day. The fan pulls didn't work in the master bedroom. Other than that it was great. (and they were minor at that)
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love getting feedback from our guests so that we can keep our units up to date.
Lance Z. from Millville, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2016 This is a great location for a visit to Kauai after being there for a week this is the place to be. The Makahuena 2-203 is equipped well with everything needed to have a great time. The Snorkel gear is mismatched and mostly smaller sizes so we just rented for the week which was easy and reasonable. The other beach gear chairs, coolers, boogie boards and fishing poles worked well. Beach access is a 10 min walk either way to the two different beaches. Shipwreck beach is by the Marriott this beach is less protected great for boogie boarding with bigger waves but a little rocky you will want water shoes. The other is Poipu beach this is a awesome family beach better for swimming and snorkeling great sand and well protected. We drove to both beaches it was a quick few minutes we found it a lot easier with all the gear. The complex is older but this unit has been re done and is in good shape the location is close to the pool and parking for easy access.We were there in May the weather was great, the beds are comfortable and the fans kept it nice and cool. This unit has a screed front door that works great. During the day we could open the front door for maximum air flow. The unit is close to the ocean and with the windows open you can hear the waves crashing on the rocks. The kitchen has a great assortment of cooking equipment though some has been well used. The Condo is part of a small complex it is quiet and well kept. The drive to the Airport is maybe 25 min, The drive up to the north side is maybe 1 1/2 hours. Getting around was easy and enjoyable. Our visit was flawless this was a great trip and will defiantly look to stay in this same unit again next time we visit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Lance for your very nice review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation and that you found Makahuena 2203 to be a fantastic vacation rental. We truly appreciate your positive feedback and look forward to having you stay with us again soon. Aloha Poipu 365
Arthur S. from las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2016 I have stayed at the Makahuena several times over the past 20 years. This unit is one of the best ones in the complex. The grounds are very well maintained. It is very well priced for what you received.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Chris S. from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in March, 2016 Very happy with the rental process and property. Great location and well appointed condo. Great family beaches within minutes and the restaurants in the area rival the other Hawaiian Islands.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we truly appreciate you taking the time to write it. We look forward to you returning to our beautiful little island and staying with us again.
A guest from Fort Saskatchewan, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2016 The suite was well maintained and well stocked, and the complex didn't feel too busy, pool included! The pool was excellently maintained. Great location close to beaches and nice places to walk. No AC, but most days it wasn't an issue due to the wind off of the ocean. Would definitely rent this unit again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Sarah for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are so happy to hear the you enjoyed your stay at Makahuena 2203, and we hope to see you again in the near future.
Emme P. from North Yarmouth, Maine recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 Four adults (1 couple and 2 friends)traveled to Kauai to explore, play tennis and sketch. Makahuena was perfect for our plans. The tennis court was right outside our door and the pool and view of the ocean right in front of our balcony.Magnificent sunsets from the balcony. The condo was very clean, kitchen had all the basic needs in terms of pots and pans and eating utensils, salt and pepper. Very nice public living space. Beds very comfortable. That being said it was perfect set-up for a family with young children. The master bedroom was luxurious but the 2 back bedrooms were dark and small. The master bedroom also had a sliding "paper wall" separating it from the living room...not very private or quiet. The tennis court would greatly benefit from a wind shield. That being said, Makahuena was really a lovely stay for us. Great location, easy drive to restaurants, beaches, and surrounding towns.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for your review Emme, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Mahalo for taking the time out to let us know how your stay went. We hope to see you again real soon.
A guest from Regina, Saskatchewan recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2016 We stayed in unit 2-203 for 11 days in February, along with our kids and granddaughter, and had a great time. The unit is very spacious, and the location is great. Overall, this unit is an exceptional value for the money. The unit does not have air conditioning, but is well equipped with ceiling fans and regular fans. Honestly, we don't feel there was any need for A/C, as the ceiling fans and trade winds were more than enough to keep things cooler when sleeping at night. The unit is also well equipped with leisure equipment such as boogie boards, a surf board, beach chairs, etc. We have been to Kauai twice now, and feel that Poipu is the best location on the island from both a weather, and access, perspective. Vicki and Christine were also very good to deal with. I would definitely recommend this unit, and Poipu365, to anyone who wants to get away to a great location at a reasonable price.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Rod for this lovely review. We are so happy that your stay at Makahuena 2203 was enjoyable, and we look forward with working with you again in the near fututre.
Kenneth Nicholas M. from Winnipeg, Manitoba recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in January, 2016 The location was perfect, management very responsive, the kitchen was well laid out and updated. The furniture was dated and not very clean but good sized and plenty of seating. The lanai furniture was too high and uncomfortable and lanai very small with no privacy. The complex and unit were very noisy, making sleep difficult in both the master and front bedroom.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for alerting us of your concerns about the complex. We will look into it, and inform the owner accordingly. Mahalo
A guest from Alameda, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2016 Extended family including two kids. Loved the location, lanai, condition of unit (with two exceptions that I'll note below.) saw whales and a beautiful rainbow from the lainai. Newly remodeled with nice baths and kitchen, high quality everything. Comfortable beds. Wifi worked well, though a little slow. Tv setup was high-tech, with Netflix. Nice artwork. Two issues: power was out in the kids bedroom. Reported to Poipu365 at checkin. Could not be easily fixed and electrician couldn't get there until Monday. Monday came and went with no electrician. We checked out Tuesday. Property manager did bring extension cords so we could plug in the table lamp and fan in that room, which worked fine for our 3night stay. Bathroom fan is very loud and bothered the people living above us. Should be replaced and/or set on a separate switch, so it's not on with the light.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Katherine, thank you for the review. We apologize about the mishaps during your stay. We have taken care of the electrical issue, and everything is smooth sailing now. We hope that you will consider renting our unit again in the future. Mahalo, and have a wonderful year.
Jill L. from Salinas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2015 We were surprised by the cleanliness and newness of the condo. The amenities were great! The towels were new; the shower curtain was new; there were beach towels and snorkel gear to borrow. The bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner and body wash, which was a blessing as my son got his taken away at the airport. There might have been bed bugs in one bedroom, but my kids didn't tell me until the last night, so it was too late to check it out. Don't use the vacuum as it seems to be a fire hazard. I borrowed one from a neighbor. We would definitely rent this condo again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Jill for taking the time to write a review. You will be please to know that there were no bed bugs. We have our units inspected on a regular basis. As far as the vacuum situation, we will inform the owner and they will assess the situation. Mahalo, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Melanie J. from Flagstaff, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in September, 2015 We were very happy with the condo overall. However, it was extremely hot when we were there (high 80s, low 90s) and none of the 3 ceiling fans in the 3 bedrooms worked well. 1 didn't work at all and the other 2 went very slowly producing no cooling effect. There were 2 standing fans which worked but REALLY needed to be cleaned. They were covered in rust and cobwebs and none of us wanted to touch them. Also our dryer wasn't working for half of our stay, and we had to carry all our wet laundry to our friend's condo on the other side of the complex. When the man came back to fix it the last time, he told us it actually did work on one of the settings, which would have been nice to know and saved us some time previously. Otherwise, the place was fully stocked with everything we needed. Additional items that would have been useful are tennis rackets and a beach umbrella.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Melanie, thank you for taking the time to write this review letting us know what issues need to be addressed. We will inform the owner of the fan situation and dryer, and will take care of it right away. As far as the heat, with all the hurricanes that were threatening to hit stealing our trade winds, that part was unexpected to us as well. But rest assure the winds are back, and the temperature has returned to normal. Mahalo for staying at Makahuena 2203.
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015 The condo has been recently remodeled and was a great place to stay during our trip to Kauai. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. There is always a great breeze that flows through the living room. Good thing too, because there is no AC.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Philip, thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope when you plan your next Kauai adventure that you will use our services again. Mahalo
Scott G. from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in June, 2015 Great location and condo, worked great for our family of 6. Ocean view from the lanai, easy acres to pool, parking. One complaint would be the paper sliding doors to master didn't provide much privacy :( but overall a great experience and great property!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Scott, thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope when you plan your next Kauai stay you will be using our services. Mahalo Nui Loa
Shahrouz Ali N. from SAcramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 jim and kathys condo was amazing and more than we could have expected. Updated nicely, great location and a view you wish you had daily.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Shahrouz for your review, we truly appreciate the feedback.
A guest from Traverse City, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 Condos are not "our thing". We have 3 children that need space to run, but this condo was perfect for our week long stop in Poipu. Super clean, stocked and ready for the beach, 2nd story view of whales breeching and the swimming pool were all a wonderful welcome. Makahuena is not the Grand Hyatt, but it is a nice, laid back, family friendly place to soak in the sunshine, sandy beaches, salty air and amazing sunsets.
James L C. from Goldsboro, NC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 Excellent visit to Kauai. Liked our accommodations but unit was a bit dated . Nice view. No beach at that location. Very noisy. Windows all open at night with very noisy activities beginning 0530 and again 2300 plus. One am awakened to someone at recycling bin pitching glass bottles in with resultant sound of breaking glass. Probably will stay elsewhere in the future.
A guest from Granite Bay, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 This is a great 3BR unit. It was very well outfitted, with lots of appliances, utensils, plates, condiments, etc. in the kitchen. There were also beach chairs and toys in the closet. The ocean view was adequate - unfortunately there is a building blocking the center 50% of what you see (between the pool and the ocean)The master bedroom is separated from the ?family room/kitchen? area by a 3 panel sliding wall, that is constructed of a wood frame with plastic inserts (that look like Japanese paper). This was attractive, and allowed for you to look from the dining table through the bedroom windows to the ocean during the day. However if your group has different sleeping and waking hours, be aware that light and noise (including from the very large flat screen TV) will get through the sliding doors with no problem. If you don?t have light/noise being generated in the main rooms while people are sleeping in the master bedroom, then there is no problem.The nearest beach we found was Poipu Beach. This is about .7 miles from the unit ? a 15 minute walk or a 3 minute drive. There is plenty of parking immediately across from the beach park, lots of grass and lots of beach, including a very sheltered ?kiddie? pool.Altogether we had a great experience at this condo and would use it again if we return to Kauai.
Steve B. from Lakewood, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2015 Extremely comfortable from the second we walked through the door. Well furnished, clean as a whistle and from the second you sit on the couch, or porch you feel at home. Almost impossible to look into the ocean from the Lani and not see a whale. Coffee definitely tastes better while standing on the porch in the morning.
Robert D. from ST. PAUL, ALBERTA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2014 We loved the condo. It was nice to sit on the lani in the mornings drinking coffee and watching the whales and dolphins swim by. The location was good and the condo was more than we expected.The sprinklers going off at 1 in the morning just below the window was not fun. The pool was a nice touch, but if you have young kids that want to play, you might not be appreciated there. Ours weren't.Overall great stay and place.One thing that would make this place stand out would be to have a local gathering area to eat outside at a picnic table or something. When with large groups, it was hard to put everyone inside to eat.
A guest from Benson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 My wife Joan and I were looking for the "right place" to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary on the island of Kauai. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in Hawaii island hopping and we were looking to stay in one place. We found it in the Makahuena Condo complex. The grounds were meticulous and the views were spectacular. Our 3 BR unit was beautifully maintained and decorated. Our only complaint was the noise from the remodeling of the unit below us during our stay.
Carol C. from Brentwood Bay, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2014 Makahuena 2203 in Poipu actually exceeded our expectations in almost every way and we had a wonderful family holiday there. The property was beautiful and the pictures accurately depicted the suite. There were six adults in our party but the unit was so spacious that we never felt like we were falling over one another. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of beach items (chairs, towels etc.)Every room had a ceiling fan and there were also a number of portable fans so we were always able to keep the unit at a pleasant temperature. I would not hesitate to recommend Makahuena 2203 and really hope we get the chance to stay there again in future.
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 Great time! Awesome island! Good location 5 minutes to breneckes beach and restaurant. Great place for kids. Pool and hot tub view from room. Pool was great for the kids. The sliding doors were off track in the bedroom of this unit and the kitchen sink faucet fell apart. The unit came with boogie boards, beach chairs and shovels and pails for the beach. Poipu 365 provide good service other than fixing the faucet in a timely manner. I would definitely stay here again.
A guest from Lethbridge, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in April, 2014 The condo has everything you could possibly want and then some! From Blender to pannini press, all there. 4 Boogie boards and 4 beach chairs along with a good size cooler to take to the beach. The only point is that walking to the beach with all the stuff for 6 people was not doable. I would recommend a car.My teenaged children enjoyed the pool and Netflix and WII and games :) thank you for a wonderful vacation.
Andree P. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 Family of 4 and Grandparents. All fit nicely. Everything was great. Beach equipment was fabulous! Kitchen was lovely. Thank you
William R A. from Honolulu,, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 We loved our stay at Makahuena 2203. The location was perfect, just a short walk from beaches appropriate for bodysurfing/bodyboarding, keiki beaches for our 4 and 6 year olds and a baby beach for our 1 year old. The condo had fresh orchids when we arrived and opened up to a beautiful ocean view. Whales and turtles regularly swam by the cliffs outside the property. The place is roomy and comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked with anything we needed. We used the beach toys and bodyboards and beach towels (mahalo!). Wifi was super easy too. We moved some stuff out of the way of the 1 yr old because he is starting to grab everything in reach, but overall very easy and would definitely come again. Thank you so much for sharing your home!
A guest from Berkeley Heights, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2014 The condo was beautiful and well appointed. There is not A/C which is not a problem but it does cause you to keep the windows open, This condo back bedrooms are close to the office and subject to a lot of noise during the "quiet hours".
A guest from Pleasanton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 Our condo was very clean and complete, and convenient. Had wireless internet, printer, etc. Only problem was that we had to have the owner contacted to find out how to turn the ceiling fans on. You have to turn a switch on the actual ceiling fan above the blades. Other than that, was a very nice stay. Thanks!
A guest from York, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Beautiful condo. Very nicely decorated. Kitchen gorgeous. Liked the tile floors and showers were awesome. Three nice size bedrooms with big closets, nice bedding. No a/c but nice breezes. Would advise to shut the bamboo shades on west side while out during the day to keep the hot sun out. Recommend walking the dirt path, access from east side of parking lot, to watch sunrise in morning. Breathtaking. Also saw lots of whales and dolphins from this point as well as from the balcony in the condo. Walked a little further to the north and saw lots of turtles down on the rocky shore. Walk to sand beach, other direction, is more like 10 to 15 min, not 3 as advertised. Did see seal sunning on beach here. Awesome experience, only wished we could have stayed longer.
Great location, value fair and condition of property good
Reviewed by: Lenny P. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 Enjoyed our time at this property. Nice views, even seen some wales from the patio. Kitchen was equipped well. Beach gear is top quality. Property was also very clean. Would recommend this unit to others staying in this area.
A guest from Redmond, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2013 Love the space. Only downside was that noise carried easily. No one was purposefully screaming or unusually loud - but we heard our neighbors and passers by quite clearly.
A guest from Issaquah, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 This is a great location, a busy condo complex, lots of people and noise, but walking distance from three of the best beaches on the south shore. Had trouble connecting with the Internet, trouble getting information from the management staff, ended up calling the carrier and solving it ourselves. Good price for a great location.
Wanda M. from Eyota, Minnesota recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. The grounds and whole experience were perfect for our three sisters and spouses trip. Very much appreciated the attention to details and the delivery of flowers when we arrived was very nice.
A guest from Winchester, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 We had a great visit - the rental was perfect - Could have used a little more view of the coast line - but you can't move the building! We would definitely consider renting here again. The Condo was spacious and clean.
Guy N. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 We recently spent a week at Poipu Makahuena 365 and loved it! The decor is classy and tasteful with all tile floors, tiled showers,, granite kitchen, upgraded appliances, and even fabulous counter appliances. There is a keurig coffee maker, panini griddle, and smoothie blender just to name a few. Gorgeous bedding and plenty of towels are provided; even beach towels. There are boogie boards and sand toys, as well as beach chairs and a cooler. The patio view of the ocean is lovely with palm trees gently swaying in the wind, and sounds of the surf.Some additional touches were the household items that were provided such as hand soap, dish liquid, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The wi-fi was a blessing as phone sevice is spotty in the area. We travel a lot, and this is a spectacular condo in a terrific location! It allows easy access to anywhere on the island, especially the main sightseeing areas, while giving you the secluded getaway that is harmonious with the peacefulness and tranquility of Kauai.
DAVID O. from SEATTLE, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2013 For context, I've got a family of five, three kids 7-4-2. We stayed in 2-203 for 8 nights. We will be back, we'll stay in this unit again, and for a longer duration.I think the simplest compliment I can pay is that this unit felt to us like the owners had just stepped away, but were coming right back. From the fully furnished kitchen to the collection of DVDs, from the NINJA blender to the master bathroom with new tile shower, this place is a step above any vacation rental condo complex. It made you want to leave the place better than you found it.Bedrooms- master rocked. tons of light, view of the water, huge bathroom with incredible shower.- two other bedrooms, one with a queen, the other with two twins. more than enough room. we had a crib delivered the day we got there and it fit fine in the room with the queen.Kitchen (we cooked most meals in so this was key):- fully stocked. i mean from the best tupperware selection to the panini maker to the coffee maker. auto ice maker, tons of ice cube trays.General- tons of linens, plenty of towels (beach and shower)- 3 TVs, including a monster 55 inch flatscreen in the main room. DVD, Wii- four boogie boards, and four nice beach chairs. we left some kids beach toys to "pay it forward"- great lanai. the view is as advertised: gorgeous. you'll eat all your meals out here.- pool is sparkling clean, 3.5 ft shallow, 8 ft deep end; hot tub is fabulous.- the vibe at Makahuena is relaxed, kind, and very family friendly - totally "Aloha"Two areas of feedback for prop mgmt- the lock at the front door took a second to figure out. turn it all the way to the left to draw the latch so you can push the door open. this could be replaced pretty easily and i think it should.- the dryer is new but something is wrong with the vents and clothes didn't dry. we flagged this to prop mgmt early on, and people looked at it the day we left. it's
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Dave,Mahalo for the review... so glad you enjoyed Makahuena 2-203. Your comments are timely - the whole Makahuena complex was re-keyed right after you left solving the front door lock problem. The dryer was pulled away from the wall and the vent was the problem. The complex will clean their vents and that problem will be solved also! The owners are here now and further updating their unit! It will be even better when you return!
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 It had everything we needed & the place was in great condition. Beautiful view too.

A guest from Keoma, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2013 Most times I need to work while traveling. Poor internet access could limit my ability to rent in future which would be too bad as the rest of the experience was excellent.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Joe,Mahalo for your comments. The internet service is through Makahuena Resort; we tried to increase the quality of the Internet access by buying a new router and having Oceanic Time Warner try to analyze the problem. We were glad to have you as a guest and very glad that the rest of the experience was excellent.
Scott L. from Comox, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2013 Wow is all I have to say. Fantastic vacation spot with all the amenities that you need in one spacious and perfectly located condo. Would visit again in a heartbeat.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Scott,Poipu is the ideal vacation spot! We are glad you found the condo pefectly located and stocked with all the amenities you needed. We are looking forward to reserving Makahuena 2-203 for your next Kauai vacation!

Nice Clean Unit w/ Great View, Could Use Improvements on Bedding
Jennifer P. from Oakland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012 This unit has a pretty decent view of the ocean and is in a quiet location. It easily accommodated our party of 6. Positives:* There are useful items like beach chairs and a large cooler that were pretty nifty for going out to the beach* The new tiles are pretty awesome (always a cool temperature to walk on, good grip)* Lots of ice in the freezer for helping to fill up the coolerRoom for Improvement:* The bedding in the 2 non master bedrooms could definitely be improved. They felt old, rough, and a bit ratty* We had a rough time setting up the wireless internet and just ended up hard wiring in one of our laptops for any serious web browsingBe warned that if you have Verizon, you likely will NOT have any data service in this unit!All in all, nice place to stay for the price.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha,Mahalo for your comments. The owners of Makahuena 2-203 will be replacing the beds when they are here for Christmas with a new king bed, a new queen bed, and a set of twins, new linens and other new pieces of furniture. They apologize and are contacting the Makahuena Resort about your difficulties with setting up the wireless internet which is part of the resort's system. The unit continues to be upgraded; you noticed the new tiles!
Stephen M. from Parker, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2012 We stayed in the condo for a little over a week in October. The unit was beautiful and had room to spare for our group (4 adults, 1 child). The condo was in great shape. Nice new tile floors, beautiful bathrooms and a nice kitchen. The owners also left a few niceties (beach chairs, board games, extra fans) and the massive TV was pretty nice too. The internet was handy and worked fine. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the walk to the beach (we usually drove with all of our stuff). Some other family stayed in nearby condos and while some were a little newer inside, they weren't quite as nice and certainly didn't have the amazing view that this unit did!The one downside is that we could occasionally hear people walking around upstairs. Not a big deal as we could use the extra fans to drown out the noise, and it really wasn't too loud to begin with.We'll definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Diane K. from Greenburg, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We recently stayed at Makahuena 2-203 and we had a WONDERFUL time. The location of this unit was perfect! We had four teenagers with us and they could walk to THREE awesome beaches within minutes which gave me and my husband time to relax. The unit was very nice and clean. The staff left us fresh flowers which was really nice. The reason I put 4 stars instead of 5 for the general condition is that the drain in the main bath had clogged. It was a weekend so I really didn't feel the need to call someone since we had 2 bathrooms. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. I would recommend this unit to all.
