We stayed here about 3 years ago and were pleased with the condo in general. It was a bit difficult to get to the condo (down stairs, then up stairs, etc.) and parking was limited. We lovesld the cliffs and views, etc. We were VERY dissapointed when we received a RUDE threatening phone call from the manager at the time...

Aloha Holly G. In reviewing your comments and checking our files, I can not confirm your reservations with Castle Resorts and Hotels. What managing Agent did you book your reservations through? Not sure if your realize that there are several other managing companies that operate rental programs here at the Makahuena. Unfortunately we can not find your name during the...

This place worked out great for our family - my husband and I travelled with my parents. Four adults in a two bedroom, two bath condo and there was plenty of space for all of us. We had a partial ocean view suite on the bottom floor-Room 1105 (one queen bed and two twins). We loved this room for the...

This place is awesome. My wife loved it, I loved it. I travel a lot and some times my wife goes with me and finding a place she likes can some times be hard. :-).

The Makahuena was exactly what we were looking for! We travelled to Kauai as a family of six, Grandparents, parents, and children. Unit 2103 was perfect. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen and large living room opening onto a garden patio with a view of the ocean. The condo was well supplied with everything we needed for cooking, plus a...

We are frequent travelers to Kauai and have stayed all over the island. We decided to give the Makahuena a try after family booked their condo there as well. We were a corner ocean view unit that was so spacious, amazing views, all updated appliances, the beds were comfy, just wonderful! Because it is at the southern point of Kauai,...

We stayed in 1309 and were very comfortable. Plenty of room for a family with 2 teenage boys. Bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen well equiped. The condo was very quiet. The only noise came from the crashing waves, not loud neighbors. The lanai was a great place to sit and sip morning coffee watching the ocean. We were pleasantly...

Beautiful property in Poipu. Well furnished condo with amazing views. Oceanfront units hear the crashing surf. Take a short walk out to the point for incredible sunrises and watch sunsets from the point at Makahuena. Nice pool. Hot tub broken for most of our stay, but they were working to get it fixed and had the repairs done a few...

Our unit was ocean front, so you want to be prepared for crashing of waves against rocks all night. We loved the sunset from the deck. Close to poipu beach. tennis court has lights till 9pm. Quiet, clean, condo units.

We stayed in Unit #4303 for six days in February, 2012 and were very unhappy with the condo. I suppose the main criticism is that the beds were awful, apparently like "cardboard" in two bedrooms. The bed in the master bedroom had a foam slab atop what was likely a very old mattress. The foam was soft, and I woke...

The Makahuena is a beautiful and comfortable Condominium complex. Each condominium is individually owned and is upgraded by its owners. The owners of this particular unit has not upgraded their unit due to the economic situation which caused some hardship for them. However, whenever an appliance fails to function or some repairs needs to be completed the owners are always...

This was our 2nd trip to Kauai. We stayed at the Makahuena in August, 2011 with our 3 teens and found the unit very homey.
