Poipu Condo - updates needed
This property does have some positives. The view really is amazing! There is not a condo anywhere in the area that is as close to the water as this one. Also, there is an amazing 2 mile walking trail that you can take along the water that ends at Shipwreck Beach. The condo is very spacious and is a great size for either two couples or a family of 4 if the siblings don’t mind sharing a bed.
Now, the negatives. The second bedroom, even with four fans going and windows open, never dropped below 80 degrees. It was very uncomfortable for sleeping. Upon arrival, the condo was very hot and humid but once we opened all the windows to get a cross breeze, it cooled down. However, because we were so close to the ocean, the open windows made the whole condo feel very damp. Nothing was ever dry. In addition, the dryer was broken and the only way to do laundry was to lay our clothes out in the living room. The clothes took forever to dry because the condo was so damp. The dishwasher worked but needs to be replaced, one of the shades in the second bedroom didn’t work, the front door handle is falling off, there’s lots of corrosion on different fixtures and the tile flooring can get pretty slippery. On top of all this, the last night we were there, the four of us were sitting in the living room and the cable box caught on fire!! The TV wasn’t even on! My daughter jumped out of her seat just before flames started coming out of the box. Thank goodness for my husband’s quick thinking, he was able to unplug the unit quick enough that the fire was contained in the box.
Mahalo Lucy for your comments. We agree, the views are amazing. When the trades blow, it certainly helps cool things down, but we know it can get hot when they do not. We are sorry for the inconvenience on the dryer breaking while you were here. Please know a new one is on its way and will be installed soon. We will check the dishwasher for any problems. The cable box thing was scary and we too thank your husband being a quick thinker. That was a first for sure and Spectrum says it was a fluke. Please know it too has been replaced.
Fantastic View and Location
I have been to various Hawaiian islands over the years, but the view here is hands down the best ever. You are literally steps away from the ocean, a beautiful cove in front of the lanai, complete with its own mini-blow hole and cave.
The view is ultimately what you are paying for (and it is well worth it), as the property itself can be somewhat improved. It could be cleaner and better organized; there is no A/C; the dryer wasn't working when we were there; and the check-in and check-out process is a bit (and unnecessarily) complicated -- although there is a lockbox right outside the unit, you have to go to the office to pick up keys and then to return them.
Management was very communicative though, and although they didn't fix the dryer during our stay, the provided all the other items we had requested -- so very friendly and accommodating staff, and we appreciated their help.
Mahalo again for letting us stay.
Mahalo Ali for your review and comments. We agree, the views are amazing from Makahuena. Please note AC has been installed in some of the units, but not all (yet). We apologize on the dryer, a part had to be ordered and we could not get it from the mainland in time for your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. In regards to picking up keys, we like to greet our guests and welcome them rather than have them have an impersonal entry to Kauai. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha
Lovely stay, great location
I stayed here with my family for 5 nights in May and it was wonderful. The house is stocked with everything you need to cook meals, and equipment for beach days and snorkeling. The views are wonderful. The only downfall is there is no AC, and it was very hot at night even with several fans on. Thankfully there are lots of extra fans in the closets. The guest room without the ocean view doesn’t cool down no matter what you do, so as long as you are willing to brave the heat you will love this place! Thank you for having us.
Mahalo Ashley for your review and comments and we look forward to having you stay with us again. A hui hou.
Great location, perfect view. Everything you need and very spacious. We didn't have the issue with rooms being too warm that others have mentioned but we were there in March. Would definitely stay again.
Location was amazing and view was spectacular
The location was great, and the view was spectacular. Right from the balcony you can sit and watch the waves, turtles and on two occasions (in only three days) we saw large pods of spinner dolphins. The interior furnishings are nice and very comfortable. The kitchen appears newly remodeled, and is very nice.
The down side was two-fold for us. It was extremely stuffy. The breeze outside was perfect, but it never made it into the condo. The largest disappointment however was that the shades in the living room did not go up- at all. The picture advertised showed a spectacular view from the living room, but it is in fact completely covered by blinds with broken mechanisms. I noticed that someone complained about this in January, and we’re told “new blinds are on order”. It’s october and now none of them work. This was super disappointing for us.
Mahalo Denise for your review and comments. Actually, the "parts were ordered" and came in but they did not work. Our thought/plan was to leave them for shade during the afternoon sun. Our mistake. Please know they have since been removed entirely and we are working with the owner to replace them when they are here next month. Again, we are truly sorry for your disappointment and the inconvenience.
Beautiful condo. View is incredible!
Loved our stay. The second bedroom was really hot and humid. Could use something other than fans to cool it down and take out the humidity. Rest of place was absolutely wonderful. We really didn't want to leave. . .
Mahalo Susan for your 5-stars and comments. We understand on the AC and are working with many owners to install AC. Please check back and we can guide you to the right place. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.
