Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Kauai - LuxuryPoipu

2 luxury bedrooms, 2 luxury bathrooms, sleeps 4

Best Oceanfront (180 degree unobstructed views), Largest (2,400 square feet), Most Luxurious (Tommy Bahama, Ralph Lauren) condo in Poipu. Sits directly over the water. Thrill to the sensation of crashing waves as viewed from your private 450 foot wrap-around lanai, or through your 17 foot high windows. Expansive use of old Koa wood throughout. 500 thread count luxury linens and matching super-soft and cozy towels and all appointments. All rooms except bathrooms have a direct ocean view. 3 HDTV Flat panel TVs (up to 42 inches), original artwork, high speed Internet access. Totally private individual entrance. Virtually private oceanfront below you means you can lounge in your robe or swim suit on the lanai and relax in comfort and privacy. Equidistant between the Kauai Grand Hyatt and the Sheraton Kauai, but much closer to the water. About a ten minute walk along the ocean to the beach, and near Baby Beach and Brenneckes. Lighted tennis court, hot tub, large pool directly outside. Look at our Maui Oceanfront Condo at The Whaler (see link below). Hawaii Tax ID # W40957444-01

"Front Row" location

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed 10 nights in this lovely unit and enjoyed ourselves every minute. It could not be any closer to the water as it is truly "Front Row". We ate all our meals and watched the sunsets on the huge wrap around lanai. We slept like babies being rocked to sleep by the ocean waves. We have already booked next year and will be thinking of our next visit throughout the year.

Super nice...we will stay there again....wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kauai 20 plus times and have stayed at the Makahuena for 8 of them. This unit has the best location on the property and one of the best in all of Poipu. The unit is very well appointed with small and large details. Also, the management is excellent.

Thank You,

Michael and Jill Joseph

Luxury Poipu

  • 5 of 5

This condo is far better equipped than any other property we've ever rented. We really appreciated the many "extras" provided. We LOVED the surf breaking so near the lanai!

This is an awesome place to stay for your vacation

  • 5 of 5

Poipou Luxury condos are absolutely awesome. We stayed for 5 nights and it was a beautiful condo with everything we needed and the views were spectacular! It was such a relaxing place to stay and Lisa couldn't have been nicer when we arrived. If anyone is looking for a really relaxing place with beautiful views to see whales, dolphins, turtles, I would highly recommend staying here. We hope to come back again!

We have been vacationing in this condo for many years. It is always a wonderful experience. We consider this a perfect vacation spot. We enjoy seeing the improvements made each year which show how much the owners and caretakers love this property. It would be impossible to mention all of the details that have been thought of to make our stay here seem like home. No matter who we bring with us, every need is met. This condo says welcome to all who stay here from infant to grandparents. Just bring your clothes and know you will have all your needs met. There is beach equipment, toys and games, music, a complete kitchen with everything needed to cook to your hearts content. Luxurious sheets, towels, shampoo, all kinds of soaps, sunscreen, we even found a toddler swim diaper when we needed it.

Lisa meets you with a glowing smile and caring spirit. Her husband Steve is there with a willing hand if anything should need fixing. Walk out onto the expansive lanai through sliders that open into themselves leaving you feel like the lanai is an extension of the living room. There is an abundance of furniture to relax in while you are enjoying the incredible view. There is always something to watch; whales breaching, whale spouts, sea turtles swimming in the waves, pods of dolphins swimming, by all kinds of boats, paddle boarders, scuba divers, kayakers, huge waves crashing on the rocks, the ever changing huge expanse of ocean, and oh those unforgettable sunsets each one more beautiful than the last. There is no more perfect place in all of the hawaiian islands to watch the sunset than from this condo's lanai. Romantic for couples, exciting and relaxing for all. From the first ray of light in the morning to the star filled sky at night you will be constantly entertained on this lanai. It is so hard to close the sliding doors for the last time when our stay is over. The condo itself is wonderful. Spacious, beautiful and yet comfortable. If you ever feel the need to leave the lanai and condo, so many wonderful beaches are within walking distance. A 10 minute walk to Poipu beach with its wonderful snorkeling and boogie boarding and Baby beach with its playground and gently lapping waves to name a couple. We look forward all year to coming here and no matter what we do the days fly by way too fast when we are here. Thank you so much, Brad and Ashli, for opening your home to us each year. We are eternally grateful.

Kauai first timers

  • 4 of 5

Aloha and firstly mahalo to both Lisa and Ashli for allowing us to rent this condo, we were on our honeymoon and Ashli left a beautiful flower arrangement to welcome us, we spent five nights in beautiful kauai and it has now become my most favourite place on earth.

Lisa is a wonderful asset, so friendly and welcoming, we have booked three condos for the duration of our vacation and this is the only one where we have been warmly greeted and given a guide tour of the facilities. Lisa has indeed thought of everything, all the cupboards and drawers are clearly labelled and the cupboards are full of condiments, really handed having forgotten sugar in our shopping trip in Lihue. In truth we spent most of our time when we were in poipu sitting on the lanai watching the breathtaking sunsets, I have made all my friends back home green with envy posting wonderful sunset pictures.

Car: recommended

This unit is directly located on the Ocean-front on the southern-most point of Poipu Beach, close enough to the ocean to drop a pebble into the water from your lanai. Most units in the surrounding area have no view, or they are distant or severely obstructed. Conversely, this unit is directly on unobstructed waterfront which is extremely rare & precious. Directly facing the south towards the Pacific there is exclusively ocean view. You will see giant sea turtles and whale pods in close proximity. Looking right, (West) is Baby Beach, one of the finest, and certainly the safest swimming beach for children anywhere in Kauai. This is also where you will see magnificent sunsets. Looking left is the beach crescent towards the Kauai Hyatt. You will see overwhelmingly beautiful sunrises. All around is the spray of the ocean, met by thunderous applause emulated by the breaking waves. As the sun goes down, the water turns a glistening silver and at night, waves entreat you to sleep.

Other Activities: Watch the waves crash and feel the sea spray. See the whales and Turtles

Golf: Located directly between both of Poipu's great golf resorts.
