We had a great time! It was nice to not have ti eat out at a restaurant for every meal! Next time we come to Kauai, we will stay here for sure!
Aran, Long Beach, CA says
Perfect place to stay if you are looking for a stay to hear the ocean crash against the cliff while sleeping or just hanging out. Views are beautiful from when you wake up or hanging out on the balcony. The community is great! Very respectful and clean. Check-in was easy because communication was on point! Would definitely stay again!!
Mahalo Aran! We really appreciate your 5-star review and comments. It sounds like you had an amazing stay! We are so happy that you could enjoy the view and the sounds of the ocean at night. We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha!

This is a wonderful spot for couples and families alike. We stayed with our college friends and we all loved our stay by the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing on the lava rocks is such a relaxing way to enjoy your vacation. We absolutely loved the small details that the rental had, such as the sign “listen to the waves” and the beautiful artwork! Wonderful place.
There are beautiful views of the the ocean. This is an excellent starting place for any walks along the water. Boogie boarding beach is walkable. There was plenty of room for our family of 4. No air conditioning and multiple fans available in each bedroom. We would stay here again.

Great location. Fantastic views!
Lindsey N. says
We loved our condo that was perfectly located to beautiful beaches, great food, and shopping. The view on the lanai was mesmerizing. We had an amazing time in Kauai.

Great ocean view
Loved this condo. It was more than enough space for our family of three. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to cook with and spices in the pantry. The beds were comfy, loved having our own bathrooms in each room. Enjoyed turtle and wave watching from the lanai every morning and evening. Even saw wales on our last evening. Beach accessories were provided the only thing missing was a cooler but we survived ???? guess we could have bought one if we really needed. Would definitely recommend staying in this unit (our only annoyance were the yappy dogs below); but wouldn’t stop us from renting this unit again. Thank you so much for sharing your condo for us to enjoy Kauai. Beautiful island
Mahalo Diesa for the 5-star review and comments. We are glad you enjoyed Kauai and 1309. We will certainly add a cooler. Our apologizes for not having one. Aloha and a hui hou.

Great vacation spot
My husband and I recently stayed at this condo and had a great trip. The ocean views are beautiful and there is plenty of space. You can take a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach as well. We would highly recommend!

View of the ocean but outdated
We only booked the unit due to the amazing price we got. The ocean view is very pretty and the pool is very close. The beach is about 15min walk away. The main reason for the 3 stars is the outdated decor. The couch and cushions seen better days, it looks like a lot of people sat on it and/or sat on it with their swim clothe. There is carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms. Being so close to the ocean and with the wet weather and humidity I would highly recommend tile floors throughout. The kitchen and bath are out dated. The dishwasher did not really clean the dishes. The unit got really hot even with the blinds closed and there is no A/C. The fans did not help. The unit is very spacious and we stayed with 4 people and it did not feel too small at all. The unit did have everything you needed in the kitchen, towels and chairs/umbrella etc for the beach. It also came stocked with paper towel, toilet paper, tissue, dish soap, etc.
Poipu stay July 2018
This was a good location for our stay. The condo had everything we needed. The condo could use some updating. The key for pool use was not tagged. It could definitely use air conditioning.
Kristine F. says
Lanai ocean view reminded me of being on a cruise ship!
We enjoyed our stay. Beautiful property in a great location. Food and shopping about 5 minutes from the condo, with lots more options about 20 minutes away. The only slight drawback is no air conditioning in the unit. The bedrooms are upstairs and it was a bit warm at bedtime! Overall, I would recommend this property and probably stay there again myself in the future!
Mahalo Kristine for your review and comments. Note, some of the owners at Makahuena are adding AC, so when you come back, be sure to look for those. It is a nice amenity for those hot days. Aloha and a hui hou.

Makahuena #1309 is very nice.
Our family rented #1309 & #1307 at the same time and had a very nice vacation. Kauai is a beautiful island and this location is centrally located so you can explore without much driving. It is within walking distance to Brennecke’s and Poipu beaches; however you will probably want to drive because the condo is loaded with beach chairs, an assortment of snorkel gear, a soft ice chest and even a couple of sand buckets. Beach towels are provided. You will see and hear the waves crashing on the rocky shoreline and you may even see some dolphins, turtles and definitely birds and geckos. This condo is equipped with everything you need including some baby gear and a baby gate. Before we left I read every review I could and was a little worried the complex might seem too dated, but it is maintained well with clean BBQ’s, a nice pool and spa area. There are two flights of stairs to enter and one inside. The condo itself has traditional Hawaiian furnishings, one queen and two twins pushed together to make a king sized bed. I hope you make as many nice memories as we did. Aloha!
It is a great place to stay very well centralized. But I think the condo could use some updating.
It was a great place to stay near the ocean. Good location. But I think the condo could use some updating.
The location was great. We could hear the waves of the ocean from the bedrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare your meals. I would stay again.
This Unit was very clean and the owners are nice to share their home away from home with others. The view of the Ocean and palm tree’s are great. One can see the crashing waves and the Turtles swimming in the Ocean. It is a very short walk down the hill to Poipu Beach and close to restaurants. The pool is very nice and is well taken care as well as the grounds. We went with out friends so there were four of us and having two full bedrooms with queens and two baths as well as a half bath in lower level was a plus for us. The Unit is stock with beach towels for the swimming pool also coolers and Beach lawn chairs are provided. We sat out on Lani and enjoyed our morning coffee as well as meals, Snacks and drinks.There is a very nice area for grilling food outdoors. Kathy and I were celebrating our upcoming 42nd Anniversary as we last visited Kauai 42 years ago on our Honeymoon. Tom and Kathy G. Warrenton Oregon Pat and Paul G. Milwaukie , Oregon
Mahalo Thomas, Kathy, Pat and Paul. Happy Anniversary. We are so glad to have hosted you on this great celebration and look forward to hosting you again…hopefully sooner. Aloha and a hui hou.
Nice view, grounds well maintained, friendly staff
Enjoyed the pool and hot tub, our condo was well equipped and clean
This property was exactly as shown.
This was a very comfortable condominium and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked and there were beach chairs, soft coolers , snorkel gear and tennis rackets available for use. The grounds were very well kept. The pool and bbq areas were clean and well maintained. The complex was quiet. We had no problems and would rent it again.
Great! -- with a few big problems
On first impression we were very excited to stay here. The location and view were great, and the apartment was very clean and looked good. However we had a few big issues: -- the downstairs neighbor smoked all the time and the smoke went into our apartment and balcony most of the time so we could barely use our lanai. -- halfway through the week they sprayed pesticides in our apartment and couldn’t tell us what they were spraying. -- they were doing construction on the roof all week, right above us, starting at 8am
Aloha Evan, Thank you for taking the time to provide comments. I am glad you found the condo clean and in good shape. We apologize for the smoker downstairs, some people are so disrespectful of others. I see we called the complex manager to resolve as this was not a unit we manage. There was really not much more we could do. The quarterly pest control is a standard product and is not toxic. As they guys that spray is say, you can stick you hand in it (which they do). It is meant to prevent our island pests from settling in the property. In regards to to the roof, I do see that we emailed you a month ahead of time and offered to move you, refund your stay or a 20% discount. You decided to stay at the reduced rate. We apologize for any inconvenience, but the roofing had to be done. We understand this not the best conditions for you and next time we will be sure to guide you to some place where there is no large construction project going on. Mahalo.
Oceanside condo with everything a couple or family could want.
Complete condo with kitchen, pots, pans, spices, snorkel gear and fins for 6 people, beach chairs, cooler bags, great ocean view, view of the pool, fell asleep every night to ocean waves crashing inn the lava rock shoreline nearby. Plenty of towels, and bathing essentials. Only thing missing was a set of golf clubs ????
Mahalo Ryan. For you next trip, we can certainly look to find you a set of rental clubs. Aloha and A hui hou!
Our stay could not have been any better! We would recommend and will probably return!
Mahalo Brent. We look forward to seeing you again soon. A hui hou!
