If you like sitting on your Lanai watching crashing waves and sea turtles popping their heads out of gorgeous water, this is your place. I stayed in A-3 which is an upper unit a few steps from parking. There are two beautiful master bedrooms downstairs, as well as a well appointed kitchen, living room, and lanai. Upstairs there is room...

We stayed in unit B2. It is rented through Kauai vacation homes. They were great. The unit itself is wonderful. You sit right on the ocean the views were amazing. The condo had everything you would need for your stay, including beach chairs and boogie boards. These units in Poipu Makai have no air conditioning, can get a little warm,...

This condo was as beautiful as shown in the photos! There is a family of sea turtles that swim right outside the window/off the deck and it was so fun to watch them every day! The beds were extremely comfortable. It was clean. The master bathroom on the main floor is really small but that was okay for a week...

Stayed in unit A3. Unit is a little dated but the views are spectacular. Unit overlooks the ocean where we enjoyed numerous turtle and spinner dolphin sightings. There is no air conditioning in the unit. Keeping the windows open let's the unit stay cool. We would definitely consider staying here on our next visit.

We rented a great condo on the ground floor overlooking the ocean. Very well equipped and great location for sightseeing in the area. Problems were: no a/c and very poor air circulation because of alcoves in the apartment Parking was not easy because of beams in the parking lot. No matter where you parked, there were many steps to navigate...

We spent two weeks at Poipu Makai and we couldn't have asked for a better location for our family reunion. From the moment we walked into condo A3 we knew that we had found the perfect place. The view from the lanai was incredible. We spent the mornings drinking coffee and watching the sea turtles swim by and in the...

We rented Unit B2 for two weeks through Kauai Vacation Rentals. They were excellent to deal with by the way. Our unit was just like the photos showed. The view from our lanai was breathtaking. I was concerned that in September we may not see the sunset from our lanai but we did. We were so close to the water...

We rented Unit B-1 through Kauai Vacation Rentals and Real Estate in January 2014. We have visited Kauai many times and usually stay elsewhere, but had guests decide to join us and needed a 2 bedroom in Poipu. The view here is great -- especially god if you want to watch for whales and dolphins. The unit itself was well...

“Pack light as there are no elevators. Seriously all you need is a pair of slacks, or dress, 3 pairs of shorts, 3 t shirts, undies, beach stuff, and something to sleep in. All floors have stairs either up or down - sometimes both. Lower floors have fewer stairs but people walk by windows on their way to check out the view. Upper floors have better view but more stairs.”
