Dreamy Beachfront Condo w/Lanai, Free WiFi, Ocean Views, Shared Pool, Gas Grill

Makahuena 5201 is a favorite oceanfront condo in Poipu. Situated right up close to the shore on a corner, you will feel like you are on a cruise ship. You are that close to the ocean! Makahuena is perfectly situated within walking distance to nearby Brennecke's and Poipu Beach Park, as well as the popular Shipwreck Beach. Enjoy a nice afternoon stroll or morning jog on the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail that begins near the Makahuena complex.

Incredible ocean views are the dominant feature of this resort which offers its guests a spacious swimming pool and sundeck, spa, and tennis courts! Take advantage of the covered barbecue area so you can enjoy all your meals in the Hawaiian sunshine.

When it's time to wind down and kick back, the spacious living room has a beautiful ocean view from the wrap-around lanai, a large flatscreen TV, and comfortable seating. The oceanfront kitchen is the perfect place to make your family's meals and the dining area seats six people comfortably.

You will see the sunrise and the sunset most of the year, making it an excellent spot to start and end your adventurous day. This spacious, 1,400 square foot condo is on one floor with two bedrooms, both with AC, two baths, an open living room, dining room and kitchen, and a lanai that sits you perfectly overlooking the Pacific blue!

Why We Love This Home

Spectacular Views: If there's going to be a single memorable feature of Makahuena it is going to be the one-of-a-kind views of the ocean all year.

Whale Watching: From November to March, whale season in Hawaii, you can often spot migrating whales right from the lanai. For a closer view, you can try sea kayaking or a sail excursion, too!

Built for Beach Bums: Makahuena is a 15-minute walk to Shipwreck's beach, the perfect place to watch the sunrise. In the evening, head to Poipu Beach, just a 10-minute walk from the house, to admire the sunset.

Wake up early and watch the sunrise at Shipwreck’s Beach, then make your way to Grand Hyatt Kauai – each is just a 15-minute walk away – to choose your own adventure. The Grand Hyatt offers wonderful shopping and an authentic luau on Thursdays and Sundays.

Whether it’s teeing off on an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, hiking or zip-lining through Kauai’s lush landscape, or getting up close and personal with sea creatures during an afternoon of scuba diving, you’ll have no problem finding an experience that’s worth writing home about. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, walk 10 minutes to Brennecke’s Beach Broiler for pupu platters, ahi tuna burgers, and more with a vista view.

This property is managed by Vacasa Hawaii.

Parking Notes: You may park in any open spaces in front of Makahuena, please note there is a bit of a walk from parking to the condo. There will be a parking pass in the condo at the time of check-in. Please place the pass on your vehicle's rearview mirror.

View was great. Home was crawling with ants, furniture was extremely dingy, worn and dirty looking. Used towels to sit on any furniture. Master bedroom pictures advertised ceiling fan but there was no ceiling fan. This home needs all the air flow and fans it can get because it only has AC in bedrooms. Living room and kitchen were VERY hot and humid, we barely could stand it
Manager response:
Hi, Michelle! We're so glad you enjoyed the wonderful view. This rental is right on the water, so it can feel moist from the ocean salt spray. We apologize if this was off-putting. We do provide multiple floor fans in addition to the remaining ceiling fans. We have sprayed for ants and deep cleaned the home. Thank you!

This place is everything you see in the pictures and more! We loved cooking breakfast in a well laid out kitchen with everything we needed and sitting out on the corner balcony with ocean views in every direction. We also loved how spacious the place was with a group of 4. The living room was the perfect place to post up and plan out what you would like to do for the day. Everyone had a comfy place to lay out and relax. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The view from this place is even better than the photos can capture. You`re right above cliffs with waves crashing into them and even a blowhole right in front of the master bedrooms window. Such an awesome view and ambiance. This was one place I was in no rush to leave in the morning and we took most of our meals to-go to enjoy more time in the house. The sunsets are also incredible. The house is beautiful as well and the amenities are well sorted. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. Laundry works great. Lots of cooler, beach chairs, snorkels and flippers, umbrella, etc as well. Brand new pack and play worked great with our infant. One caution is if you have an infant, it`s RIGHT above crashing waves, so be prepared for somewhat salty floors and surfaces. Grabbing a mop might help here. Overall this was one of my favorite airbnb experiences and I would highly recommend it. Beautiful place in a great location.

I had a wonderful experience here. We were a group of friends travelling to the island for the first time and this place definitely made our stay memorable. The place is very spacious and view is amazing. All the people managing the place are very helpful and understanding. Thanks for a wonderful stay, folks!

The view from this condo is 180 degrees of nothing but ocean. It is STUNNING. The condo is very spacious with wonderful high ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped. We ate almost all of our meals in with the best view around. We spent mornings and evenings on the large wrap around lanai. The hosts were helpful and quick to respond. We definitely recommend it for your stay in Poipu! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Amazing views!! Great communication from the host. Very clean. Not as many amenities compared to a resort, but you pay for the amazing view as the ocean is right on your back deck. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

ok so on arrival we were blown away by the spaciousness of the main room. it truly does feel like you’re on a cruise ship but without the motion sickness. the way the water wraps around the lanai is an unreal experience. the waves crashing up against the rocks provides an epic backdrop to any event. my girlfriend and i came for a quick getaway and dropped into one of the most beautiful nights of our relationship. we were stoked to have all the essentials for a romantic evening including a bottle of wine, snacks for the rising, and cold clean water inside the fridge. plenty of towels for every use case the AC in the rooms is the cherry on top. the main room stays decently breezy w the doors open parking lot is a bit farther than you’d think but it’s a beautiful pathway into the condo the lanai is truly amazing. we spent so much time out there. definitely will book again maybe even next month 😎 This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Amazingly beautiful space with insane views of the ocean from every room! AC in the bedrooms helped a TON – would’ve been helpful to know that the bedrooms were the only rooms with AC before we arrived (it was quite humid while we were there and the living room was pretty miserably hot) but other than that it was an amazing stay with incredible views and easy access to so many places! Nice and clean too – and the master bathroom is awesome. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great place. The view, the waves crashing into rock walls right off the balcony on a 180 degree view. Wow! Also location is fantastic. There is a nice park, great for snorkeling within walking distance, alongside a nice casual restaurant / bar.

Excellent views and location!! Accurate description on website. Nicely decorated. Perfect views of sunsets nightly!! No need to book The Beach House restaurant as it is right out your door..... Attentive response from host. Added car rental a big bonus as you must have a car to fully enjoy Kauai.

Location, location, location. The views are wonderful. The ocean waves put on an endless show that is impossible to get sick of. Home was clean, and pretty much exactly as depicted. My family of four had a wonderful time, and would certainly stay in this home again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The perfect place to stay. Beautifully furnished and spectacular views. Great place to watch the sunset. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The view from this place is unparalleled as we simply sat and watched the whales and turtles for hours. We were on our honeymoon and stayed for a week. The complex is in a perfect area for Southside activities. There were plenty of towels, laundry and toiletry supplies, and a great starter kit including eggs and sausage. Wonderful touches to welcome you. We did have an issue with the internet not working and because it was after 4 pm it was outside working hours. The internet issue was the bill had not been paid by the owners and we were out of service for 24 hours. The property is a bit dated, kitchen was missing a few basic items like wine glasses, certain windows could not be opened etc. For this reason we rated the property less than 5 stars. I would stay here again though simply for the view! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We saw whales breaching every time we looked out the window. Absolutely spectacular view of the world. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
