The Makahuena Resort Condo on Kauai in Poipu

Makahuena is an oceanfront resort condominium perched on a rocky coastline of nearly 3 acres at Makahuena Point in Poipu.  It has 79 units in 6 buildings, all 3 stories except for the 2-story oceanfront building and a detached unit once owned by Kauai's famed ice cream guru, Walter Lappert.  The resort features a pool, hot tub, tennis courts, and the sight and sound of waves rolling in on the rocky coastline.  Many offer stunning views of the ocean plus whales "cruising by" during the winter months.  Most units have 2 bedrooms with 2 or 2.5 baths.  Some top floor units have a loft area which can be used as an office or sleeping area.  Living area layouts include all on one level as well as 2-level or 2-level plus loft configurations.

World-famous Poipu Beach is a 10 minute walk in one direction and Shipwreck Beach the same distance the other direction.  Poipu offers swimming, surfing, sunning, and snorkeling, plus a multitude of shops and restaurants.  Some favorite restaurants include Casa Di Amici, Beach House, Roys, Joe's on the Green and several at the Grand Hyatt and Sheraton hotels.

While many think of Makahuena as part of the Poipu Kai Resort because it's in the same general area, it's not officially a member.  Since Makahuena has its own pool and tennis courts, this has little downside while providing a huge benefit to owners in avoiding the monthly membership fees. 

The Makahuena owners association website is a good resource for owners but access is limited to frequently asked questions for others.

Listing and sales data includes all buildings.  The oceanfront building features premium views and premium prices.  Typically the maximum price in the tables below will be for an oceanfront unit unless there are none in the data.  It is recommended that median prices be used for a more representative price for the interior units.

Richard what a lovely presentation.  I enjoyed your video especially the chirping.  It would be a delight to have vacation home in paradise.

Hi Georgina-It was indeed peaceful the day I was there and that's the norm. It's even more awesome when the surf is up. Hi Jennifer-Yes, the chirping birds were not staged, they were just having a great day in paradise.

Looks perfect!  It's been too long since my last vacation, i'm due for another soon - hopefully, I will be able to talk my wife into going to Hawaii (she hates long flights).  I will have to keep checking back to see the videos and lose my winter blues!!

Richard, can I show your new Makahuena REO or is it occupied? I have someone interested in the project.
