Lovely condo, nicely decorated, clean, pretty and comfortable. The view from the Lanai is wonderful for morning whale watching and coffee, and also quiet evenings watching the moon on the water. The location is very nice because you can watch sunrises from the lanai and by walking a few feet to the west within the condo complex or on the trail next door, you can watch the sunset the same evening! There is a nice walking trail along the beach (part of the Koloa trail) immediately East to the buildings which you can take all the way to the beaches at the Hyatt. The one caution I would have is that if you or a family member does not do well with stairs, the condo is on a second floor plus there are stairs to navigate to all of the bedrooms. If you are fine with stairs, it's very lovely.
Gorgeous property, close to Poipu beach
This condo was beautiful! We had several whale sightings right from the balcony. Walkable to Poipu Beach and the shoreline hiking trail is right next door. The kitchen was fully operational and stocked with all necessary equipment to cook meals (toaster, rice cooker, blender, and a solid variety of pots/pans, knives, etc.), The kitchen set up made it very easy to eat in. Pool area was also very nice, the kids had a great time.
This was our second time staying at the Makahuena complex and would definitely come back if ever in the Poipu beach area again.
Not worth the management hassle
The unit was 4 stars, the overall rental experience was 2 stars.
Positives: Clean, spacious unit. Perfect for families ( we were just a couple). Ocean view, but pretty distant. Beach gear- chairs/ umbrella/ etc. in unit. Great sunrise views, short walk to great sunset views.
Negatives: Parrish Collection Management. Everything is "in the contract" but (a very large) security deposit for 3 day rental seems excessive. After the ( very large) security deposit was held for 10 days after check out, I had to call Parrish Collection to inquire about the refund. I was told that they hold it for two weeks after the rental is over - "it's in the contract". Mahalo. Shame on them.
Also, arrived to pick up the keys at their off site office 15 minutes before check in, and we were told that the keys couldn't be released until check in time even though we were 15 minutes from the unit. Just what you want to hear after a long day of travel.
Clearly, Parrish is in the management business and not in the hospitality business.
If you'd rather enjoy your vacation than read the fine print in contracts, I'd take your business elsewhere.
Note: VRBO does not allow me to mention the amount of the “very large” security deposit.
Aloha Bradley, Mahalo for your review and comments. A security deposit (or damage protection insurance) is a standard for vacation rentals, no matter the length of stay. As we state, it will be returned in 15-20 days via check (to account for mailing, etc.). Many now chose damage protection insurance as it is much easier. Please note, we do not release the keys until the manager ensure the unit is ready for arrival (so we can be sure to deliver the positive experience you had). We always are clear on the check-in time so you can plan accordingly ahead of time. Sorry for any confusion.
Better in person; would stay again
For home 4305:
The place is nice in photos, but better in person. Makahuena is in a nice area of Poipu, close to Koloa. The building is well tended to and the view from the balcony is nearly unbeatable. The Parrish Collection team were kind and kept the condo well stocked with soaps and towels. There isn’t central AC or heating, but we didn’t need it; the area is breezy enough that if you wanted to cool down a room, simply open a window. My family would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Condo!
With the exception of a few ants, we found the condo to be quite clean and inviting. The wind off the sea could be directed throughout the house to keep it comfortably cool, the balcony offered a scenic view of the sea and distant mountains, and the bedrooms and baths were clean and comfortable. Our unit had a screen door on the front door, which allowed us to keep the solid front door open and thereby achieve the aforementioned through-condo breeze. Overall, it was a nice place to return to after a day at the pool or the sea.
Mahalo Cindy for your 5-star review. We apologize on the ants. The AOAO does spray regularly, but sometimes with a lot of rain, they can move in. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
