About Our Condo

The Makahuena

The Poipu Retreat is located at The Makahuena, a small condo complex on the southernmost tip of the island. This is the perfect location to watch the beautiful sunrise before you head out to explore Kaua'i. Then after being out in the sun all day, come home to the cool, calm, and tranquil condo. Later, join the neighbors to view the magnificent sunset from Makahuena Point. Finally, wrap yourself in the luxury of our super soft bamboo sheets, and fall asleep to the sound of the surf.


Living Room

The living room is furnished with plenty of comfortable seating, and has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on two walls. By adjusting how far the doors are open, you can control the "air conditioning" provided by the trade winds. You can sit for hours reading a good book, or just enjoying a beautiful view of the private garden while the breeze flows through the condo, and you listen to the waves crashing on the rocks nearby. Check out the Amenities page for other features of the living room.



Cooking some of your meals at the condo is a great way to save money to spend on another part of your vacation. It can also be more relaxing, and is a great way to bring everyone together. Prepare a gourmet feast for friends and family to eat on the lana’i or at the dining room table, or prepare a picnic to enjoy while watching the sunset. The newly remodeled kitchen has all new appliances and granite countertops, and comes equipped with a blender, coffee makers, full knife set, and all the kitchen gadgets you’ll need to prepare a great dinner.


Dining Room

We have a glass top dining room table with four chairs. There are also two bar stools for additional seating at the kitchen counter. We also have two booster seats (stored in the master bedroom closet) for use by the little ones.


Master Bedroom

The master suite is off the living room and is accessed through shoji screens, which we find pretty neat. With the doors slid to one side, it really gives the condo an open feeling, and expands your view of the garden area.

With the doors closed you have privacy in a nice, big en suite, outfitted with a king sized bed, luxuriously soft bamboo sheets, lamps and tables, dresser, and tasteful artwork.

Since the master en suite has its own exit to the lana’i, this room is a great sanctuary away from the rest of the condo.


Master Bathroom

Renovated and upgraded in the fall of 2013, the master bathroom includes a new granite-top vanity, with plenty of counter space. You have a new, comfort-height toilet, and tiled shower/tub enclosure with a raindrop showerhead. There is a hair dryer in one of the drawers of the vanity, and we’ve provided two sets of super soft bamboo towels.


Guest Bedroom/Bathroom

The guest bedroom is off the kitchen and dining room area, and has two twin beds. However, if you request, we can use a king converter pad to turn the twins into a single king (with super soft bamboo sheets). There’s also a TV and DVD player in the bedroom if you need to park the little ones away to get some peace and quiet. The TV works with most video games if you have your adapters. The full bath is just outside the bedroom and features a new, granite-topped vanity, comfort-height toilet, two sets of super soft bamboo towels, and a handheld showerhead.



Our condo has two lana’is. One runs the length of the condo and can be accessed from the master bedroom and living room. The other can be accessed from the other side of the living room. Outside, you have your own private garden and tranquil space. You can see a sliver of the ocean from the lana’i, and you can hear it, if the sliding doors are open, throughout the day and night. Relax with your morning coffee or a good book, or eat dinner with the family in total privacy from the rest of the condo complex.


Housekeeping Service

There’s no scheduled housekeeping service during your stay. We’ve stocked the condo with basic cleaning supplies if you would like to do a little spruce-up. If you would rather just pay for an additional cleaning, please contact our property manager.
