About Andy Mosko

Chris and I grew up in Southern California. We learned to love the ocean and the sunshine. We have subsequently lived in several states but fell in love with Kauai after our first visit in 1972.

Andy Mosko purchased this condo in 2014

Why Andy Mosko chose Kauai

We purchased the Makahuena condominium in 2001 after visiting many beautiful properties in the Poipu/Koloa community.

What makes this condo unique

The inspiring moment came when we saw the spectacular ocean view from our living room and lanai. The sunsets and sunrises are special memories we have shared together. Our family and friends always look forward to staying with us in Kauai. Our grandchildren love the beaches and swimming pool nearby. Peace and comfort always greet and remain us during our stays. We extend these feelings of Aloha to our guests. Kauai is our Aloha. Andy and Chris Mosko

Terrific vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five weeks in this condo at Makahuena, and loved every minute of it. The floor plan is excellent, the view from the lanai was spectacular for the ocean, whales, and magnificent sunsets. The kitchen gear was just what we needed, and we made great use of it. For places where we stayed on past Kauai vacations, I needed a chiropractor and massage after a while, because the furniture was marginal. Not so with this vacation. Five weeks, including ten rounds of golf and lots of walking, and I had no aches or pains. All the furniture was wonderfully supportive. We have zero complaints/concerns. We definitely will return to this unit.

Beautiful condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

We're 2 couples who spent a week here in February 2017. The building is in an upscale development of residential homes and fine resorts. The property is impeccable, as is the unit. We were wowed when we walked in: large, bright, airy, well appointed; the cleaner had even placed hibiscus blooms throughout and left a pineapple on the dining table. 2 bedrooms with ensuite up, and a half bath with laundry down was very nice. The beds were comfortable and the air was great for sleeping. Liked having a safe in the master. Being top floor we had a fabulous view over the pool to the ocean where we could see humpbacks spouting regularly. We had all our meals on the lanai and were treated to some lovely sunsets. The pool was great and never crowded or noisy. The BBQ area was great and we met lots of nice folks there while cooking supper. Always lots of room in the parking lot.

Poipu Beach is only 3/4 mile / 700m away: short drive or easy walk; lots of parking across the street there. We got our best snorkeling of 3 islands at Poipu: great variety of fish in clear water inside the reef right off the shore in stand-up depth.

A walk the other way from the condo is Maha'ulepu Trail along the shore; definitely worth doing as the cliffs are quite special.

It was an easy drive for groceries up in Kaloa, though we did our big groceries at Costco (which has the best view of any Costco from their lunch area!). Just down the road across the roundabout is Kukui'ula Village Shopping Centre: quite a selection of shops and the day I went there was a market; scored some nice fresh fruit. On the Poipu Road just beyond the roundabout is another small grocery store that we didn't try out, but there is a fully equipped dive shop (Seaport Divers) where I was able to get leaky masks repaired.

This condo in Poipu is situated on Kaua'i such that nothing is far: Waimea Canyon one way, Lihue, Wailua, and all the way up to Hanalei the other. In addition to it's location, we chose Poipu because it was reported as the driest part of Kaua'i; this seemed to be so when we were there.

The owners, Andy and Christina Mosko, were great to deal with, and the information they sent ahead of time was super useful. I'd highly recommend staying here - I would were I to go back to Kaua'i!

Accommodates 4 comfortably, 6 was a stretch

  • 3 of 5

This condo was clean and well-equipped. Our main issue, which would prevent us from booking again, is that the condo doesn't really accommodate 6 comfortably. Aside from the 1 queen and 2 twin beds, which worked for my wife, myself, and 2 small children, the "futons" provided are the tiny, folding variety - 4-6" of soft foam to be placed on the floor - suitable for small kids or maybe adults looking for a camping experience. There is a sofa bed, but we arrived to find signs on it saying not to use it - it's broken.

Evelyn, the property manager, was very responsive and offered to deliver a rollaway bed, but none were available, so she brought a Coleman cot instead. We made that work for our nearly 6' tall 15 year-old, and put the 3 smaller kids in the bedroom, but it was not ideal.

Evelyn also let us check in and out at 1pm, since the condo wasn't booked at either end of our stay, which we appreciated.

While the condo has been updated, the property shows its age. It's generally well maintained, but the hot tub was out of order for our entire 8-day stay. Bummer!

Also, there's a major construction project on the lot next door. Not a big deal, but should be disclosed ahead of time, along with the broken sofa bed. And the hot tub if that doesn't get repaired soon...

The condo is a great location, especially if you're seeking reliably sunny weather in the winter, and this condo would be ideal for a couple with no more than 2 kids.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lawrence, Thank you for sharing your experience. I appreciate your valuable input and will certainly look into getting sofa bed replaced. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience during your stay. Jacuzzi has now been repaired. I'm truly sorry that it took a while to get the parts in. Sincerely yours, Evelyn

It was a great place to stay with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. They even let us have a late checkout since our flight was only at night. I highly recommend this place.

Family Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Makahuena was even better than we expected! The listing description and photos were very accurate, even though they didn't show how outstanding the view was in person! The sunsets, sounds of waves crashing, and pool/beach views were exceptional! The two bedrooms, both with their own bathrooms, helped make our family vacation run smoothly, easy, and relaxing. We had requested a pack and play, as well as a highchair, and both were all ready when we arrived. The furnishings and decor were well maintained and the kitchen supplies were well stocked, making our in house meals very convenient (although the close-by malls and restaurants enticed us out a few nights)! We appreciated the closet full of beach gear and toys. Near-by trails to walk up and down the coast were most enjoyable and we golfed at Poipu Kiahuna Course almost every morning! The close proximity of the pool was perfect for our granddaughter. We also spent time at the beaches which were great for swimming and cooling off. We love Kauai, Poipu area and Makahuena!!! Thank you for making our vacation a special memory!!
