Our condo is located in the Makahuena Condo Resort on the most southern point of the island in Poipu, Kauai (See map below Makahuena Pt is labeled next to Poipu Beach). The Makahuena is a smaller resort with only 78 units which is very quiet and peaceful. The complex is well maintained and very beautifully landscaped with a tennis court, a tile lined pool and a relaxing hot tub. There are two world famous beaches, Shipwreck and Poipu Beach, just a couple of blocks away in either direction.
Our condo is located in Building 1 on the top two floors with two stories (Fourth unit closest to the ocean). This is not only tremendous for the view but it allows for no neighbors above you!!! With over 1200 sq ft of living space, there are two master suites with their own private baths on the second story. The first story has a half bath with a full size washer and dryer, beautifully remodeled kitchen, dining area living area with a private lanai with incredible ocean views. The living area has brand new furniture and a very comfortable pull out sofa bed for increasing the number of guests to 6. For the guests that still need to be "connected", we have flat screen TV's with digital cable in all three rooms and broadband internet with wifi for your convenience.
We have beach chairs, umbrellas, ice chests for use for our guests. We also have tennis rackets to use at the on-site tennis court.
Being on the Southside of the island offers many advantages. The best advantage that appealed to us is the fact that it is sunny virtually all year long with Poipu receiving less than 29 inches of rain annually! That makes for great beach weather all year long!! Another advantage is the proximity of numerous restaurants and shopping within a couple of miles from our condo. Also, the proximity to Lihue is really nice also if you need to run into town to go to Costco, Wal-Mart or K-mart as its only a 15 minute drive. The southside trade winds always offer a nice gentle breeze and enhance the sounds of the ocean!!
