Peaceful and beautiful stay
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay - the condo was more than spacious, and the master bedroom had AC which was amazing! Our favorite part of the stay was sitting out on the balcony with the ocean view or relaxing in the peaceful and private pool area every afternoon. Highly recommend to anyone interested in a more quiet, peaceful and relaxing stay in Poipu. The condo also had beach chairs and towels which was great!

Great location, beautiful deck, lovely set up and well stocked kitchen with everything you’d need. The only slightly negative is that the two rooms are very different – the master is pure luxury. The guest room is just that. This would be an ideal set up for a family with younger kids. Less ideal for two couples sharing the space.

We bad to change condos and that was inconvenient.
Mahalo Richard for your review and comments. We can certainly understand your frustration of having to move units during your stay, however, it was unavoidable. You were originally booked in Makahuena #1204 but unfortunately, there was a major flood which necessitated us having to move months of guests as much of the unit needs to be repaired and/or replaced, including the entire kitchen. Had we had an option for your whole stay we would have certainly offered it, but in order to accommodate your full stay, we had to place you in two separate units. We apologize, but it is high season and neither us nor any one of our partner companies had other options. Again, we are very sorry that this happened and we did our best to accommodate you but this was something out of our control. We hope you enjoyed Nihi Kai and hope to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou.
Paula M. says
This property was extremely comfortable with a nice ocean view..highly recommend for your Poipu vacation.
Mahalo Paula for that 5-star review! Glad that you found the unit comfortable. We hope to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!
Kommen gerne wieder
Freut mich zu hören, dass Sie einen tollen Aufenthalt hatten. Bis bald.

Thanks for the late checkout.
Location was excellent.
The bed had a foam mattress topper (not an actual mattress) which made it feel like a marsh mellow and it was too soft.
Mahalo Shari for your review. For next time, we can certainly remove the topper if you prefer. Just let us know. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha
We had a fantastic stay. This place has everything. We absolutely love the decor. It was the perfect location, we were able to see the beautiful sunset and ocean view from the lanai. We will definitely come here again!
When we rent from Parrish we know we are getting a clean quality unit.
The staff at Parrish are wonderful to deal with. All wonderful!!! This is a well maintained complex. The unit we stayed in was very nice, but with the smell of cigarettes coming from the unit beside us and the smoke from the BBQ across the back way, it was a bit smoky some evenings. Would definitely recommend Parrish and the Makahuena, just a different unit. The dishwasher made an electrical smell during the dry cycle and the unit wasn’t firmly installed, as the door swing path could collide with the stove. We didn’t report this until check out as it wasn’t impeding our stay. Thank you again!! See you next time.
Mahalo Dave for your review, comments and continued loyalty. We will for sure ensure all is well with the dishwasher. Sorry about the smoke…I agree, the cigarette smoke is disturbing and we will be sure to pass the complaint on to the other management company and the AOAO. We look forward to hosting you again next time. Aloha

Crystal in the Parrish Office. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and a great aloha attitude! Loved working with her. Just want to say that talking to Crystal was a pleasure! Love her Aloha attitude!
Aileen K. says
Thanks, we had a great vacation!
Great location and air conditions in the master bedroom was so nice to have. My rating for this part was based on VRBO booking
Mahalo Aileen. Glad you had a great vacation and sorry about the problems with VRBO. Now that you know, booking direct is easier and with less fees. We look forward to hosting you again.

Nice facility. Nice pool. Good kitchen facilities and cooking items
We only met one staff person and only for a few minutes. However we had received adequate info via email so everything was fine. We stayed at 2 different properties. Poipu we used Dropbox. Princeville met receptionist. She was very nice.
Stephen C. says
Loved the location, how modern the condo was and the cleanliness.
we were extremely happy with the whole experience. One thing though, another air conditioner in the other bedroom would have been nice.

Fantastic location - we saw dolphins from the lanai!
We loved this location on the point. We could walk in one direction on the trail to Shipwreck Beach, or go the other way and snorkel at Poipu Beach (and see monk seals sleeping there). It was just a short drive to shopping and other activities. The condo was equipped with everything we could need, including beach towels (4), boogie boards (2), snorkel gear (2), and and a cooler for snacks at the beach. The kitchen was great – and had everything we needed to cook our meals/store our leftovers. We loved sitting out on the lanai with coffee (the complimentary packet upon arrival was nice) in the morning, although once the sun is up, it shines directly into the unit and does get warm. No worries – by then we were ready to start our day! AC in the master bedroom was definitely nice to have as it did get warm in the unit! The showers/bathrooms were completely updated with a master walk-in shower, complete with a smooth stone floor. We never did use the pool, so we can’t say anything about that area. A nice surprise was the gate just down the walk that lead to the a flat rocky area over the ocean. It was a beautiful place to watch the sunset at the end of the day – and we were the only ones there! Definitely use the snorkel gear even if you just head to Poipu Beach! There were plenty of fish (they are used to people) right there as you walked in the water. We went on a sailing/snorkeling commercial tour and ended up unable to snorkel because they said the conditions weren’t good (although upon our return we ran into other people who went out at the same time/same place with another company and did snorkel – they used Cap’n Andys and we were with Liko – disappointing for sure). Planning your own trip? Don’t hesitate to stay here – excellent value for the price – and buy the book Kauai Revealed to help you plan your activities/dining – so worth it!
Great web site.

Kauai is beautiful and the location of the rental place is great. We love the condo because it was nicely decorated and furnished with all the amenities we need. Besides the very nice condo we stayed in, we really appreciate the cleanliness of the ground and pool at the Makahuena. Perhaps adding lights on the tennis court would be good. Thank you for all the information provided and even notification about the development of the Makahuena Estate next door. We made a mistake by going to Costco and stock up our food and didn’t pay attention to check in time. The staff was very accommodating to let us check in a little earlier so we really appreciate that. We love the Makahuena #1204 during our stay. We will definitely would like to stay there again. The place was what expected to the standard indicated on the website.

We know what to expect with you and the discount for returns is nice.

Very clean modern and new condo
This condo looked brand new inside. It was remodeled using high-end finishes throughout. The décor appeared to be professionally done with nice touches throughout the home. Property management did an exceptional job stocking the home with toilet paper, soap, shampoo etc. They also called to check-in with us upon arrival and before departure. I own a couple vacation rentals so I appreciated this level of service. A major benefit to this condo is that it is air conditioned in the master bedroom. Do not believe all the listing that tell you that air is not needed. It would have been great to have throughout the home but air is very rare on Kauai so we were happy to have it in the master. Property was a great value and I highly recommend it.
Very nice, clean, well equipped in a good location
I stayed in Makahuena #1204 for one week with my wife and 2 kids (8 and 10). check in was well organized and very simple, the unit was super clean and very well equipped. this unit has air conditioning only in the master suite (this was made clear to me at booking). cable and internet was excellent. also a nice location in Poipu 5 min driving from everything. I would recommend this unit, and the Manager, Parrish Collection. they have accurate descriptions of their units on the web site.
We loved this place!!! Was great for our trip!
Well stocked, clean, beautiful view from the patio, loved the color scheme! Kitchen was great!!!! Master bathroom is awesome! Loved the surround sound music! We can’t wait to come back!
Meghan M. says
Everything was lovely!!!
The openness of the place, the view of the ocean from the patio and all the kitchen supplies and the cleanliness of it all!
Pauline M. says
Thank you for helping make our stay memorable.
We liked many things about this vacation rental: we really liked the layout and the beautiful decor. It was very well-maintained and in excellent condition. The location was perfect, with an ocean view. And, it was very quiet in the mornings and evenings. A perfect place to stay, in our opinion.
Larry H. says
Thank you for a wonderful vacation…

This condo was a beautiful and comfortable retreat on the South shore of Kauai. My husband and I were pampered on our honeymoon and are planning to return for our anniversary. The kitchen is well stocked with tools. The grill area outside was great too. We loved the tiled hot tub. We played cards and enjoyed meals on the lanai and enjoyed the view of the ocean. We also admired the ocean and sunsets from the grounds. There were plenty of towels, a comfortable king size bed, and comfortable furniture throughout.
It’s close to the Koloa farmers market on Mondays, an intense crowd experience for people who love produce! Lappert’s ice cream is close by and the mai tais at the Dolphin are the best!
We enjoyed watching the Hawaii HD channel at night while we were unwinding, with HD footage from Blue Hawaiian helicopters on all of the Hawaiian islands. My husband was only half kidding when he said he didn’t want to come back to Kauai unless the Hawaii channel was part of the experience.
This is a great condo and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
