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

This condo exceeded our expectations! It was perfect for our family of 4 - our two son's (17 &13) had their own space & the master bedroom was spacious and comfortable for us. It was comfy and felt like our home away from home. We ran on the path behind the complex to Shipwreck's - beautiful views and landscape. It was very close to Poi'pu beach - where we spent most of our time snorkeling and surfing. Evelyn and her team were great to work with & so responsive! Mahalo!

Wonderful ocean view, comfortable well-appointed condo on the South shore

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying in this condo for the second half of our Kauai trip (North shore for the first half). We knew we made the right choice, when we looked out the master bedroom window the first morning and saw a rainbow over the ocean. Saw this another am too!! This condo had it all: well-appointed kitchen to make our own meals (usually just breakfast and an evening snack), plenty of towels & beach towels, lots of guide books to the island and reef fish. We really enjoyed the breezes off the ocean and sitting and relaxing on the nice lanai. Pool and hot tub looked nice (just below us), but we never got back from our daily adventures in time to use them.

This was a great location for exploring the south shore: we snorkeled at Poipu Beach, seeing a large variety of colorful fish! Although there was snorkel gear in the condo, the sizes didn't work out for us, so we rented from Mimo's Surf Shop (along Poipu Rd): excellent, inexpensive "mom and pop" place! Walked the rocks just below the condo and enjoyed the huge crashing waves, also walked over to Shipwreck Beach. Took the drive up to Waimea Canyon: wow was that fantastic! That day included a stop in Waimea for a Hawaiian BBQ lunch that we took up the mountain for a picnic. On the way back, we stopped back in Waimea for the Original Jo Jo's shave ice, a stop by the Auntie Lilikoi shop for "Hawaii (meat) Rub", a quick stop by the "glass beach" (just below the refinery tanks) and the adjacent old Japanese cemetery. Also a detour to Kauai Coffee Company. We also enjoyed a trek to Koloa for souvenir shopping and an excellent dinner at Garden Island Grill; we enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. One day, we did the Mountain Tubing Adventure with Kauai Backcountry Adventures: tubing down the old irrigation channels for the sugar cane plantations - super fun and an easy way to see more of the jungled interior that is Kauai! Highly recommend this!

Arrangements/communication were easy and we experienced absolutely no problems. The apartment was clean and exactly how described/pictured. The only recommendation we have would be to have salt/pepper in the condo. (We used some seasoned salt we found in the cupboard for our eggs and that was tasty, but a regular salt/pepper shaker would be nice). We would definitely recommend this condo to friends traveling to the south shore.

Thank you for the privilege of letting us stay in your lovely condo. We hope to return soon!

Beautiful oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week stay in Poipu. Just minutes from the beach and conveniently located to many restaurants and activities. The condo unit has a nice ocean view from the balcony. We used the outdoor seating area for all our meals at the condo. The Barbeque Ramada has three grills which is convenient. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend this place. Thanks!!!

More beautiful than we expected! Next time will stay longer,

  • 5 of 5

The unit 2308 was immaculately clean and well maintained. Lots of supplies for guests which is really convenient for example some spices, plastic wrap and lots of cooking utensils. Was not a concern not having air conditioning as prefer the natural flow through breezes in the unit. The grounds of the Makahuena are spectacular with a sunset and seaspray like we have never experienced. We had our two adult sons with us and the upstairs bedrooms suited us as they could stay up later without disturbing us.

Management was very accommodating with an early check in and late check out as flights out of Lihui to Vancouver always seem to be late.

Would highly recommend the property and would stay again for sure.

Alita Reid,

Clean, spacious and comfortable condo with nice ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was very quiet and we enjoyed hearing the crash of the waves at night; we were plenty cool with windows open and fans running. We had plenty of space for three adults and three young children. Reservation process was seamless. Evelyn, the property manager, was very helpful. The condo had everything we needed for the beach, including nice beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel sets and pail and sand toys for the kids. We would stay here again if we vacation in Poipu.

Great location, views, ocean breezes!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at this vacation rental. Overlooking the ocean in the Poipu area, it's about a 10-15 minute walk (or a very short drive) to great beaches and the excellent Brennecke's restaurant. There's also a pathway on one end of the parking lot that leads directly to amazing lava stone cliffs overlooking the ocean.

The property manager, Evelyn, was wonderful to work with, providing detailed instructions and ideas for things to do in the area. The trade winds blow right through the condo, so even though the days were hot, the condo was always pleasant and cool.

The rental is spacious, on two levels, fully furnished with everything we needed and with plenty of beach gear too - beach towels and even snorkel gear! Board games and books to read too - the owners have thought of everything to make guests comfortable. The complex has a pool and hot tub, which we enjoyed, and it's beautifully landscaped with spacious lawns, tropical plants, and plumeria trees.
