Located on the tip of Poipu Point, at the southernmost point of Kauai, Castle Resort’s 3-star Makahuena at Poipu is a very beautiful oceanfront condominium property where guests can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets and during the winter months, whales migrating to Maui. There are even benches at the edge of the bluff for watching the spectacular sights.
The property outdoor amenities include a swimming pool, sun deck, jet spa, tennis courts and barbeque area. While there is no on-site restaurant, there is a good selection of shops and restaurants in the nearby historic town of Koloa Town and in the Poipu Beach area. Or, you can simply buy some things to grill and have a night picnic sitting on one of those benches, watching the waves, counting stars or just enjoying the beauty that is Kauai. Do stop in the town of Lihue at one of the major grocery stores for any groceries you might want during your stay before driving to Poipu.
Due to it’s rocky coast, there is no beach access, but just a mile away is what is considered to be one of America’s best beaches, Poipu Beach. There is a protected area for safe swimming and at the other end, the perfect spot for surfing or boogie boarding. Between the two points is a great place for snorkeling – in other words, this is a perfect beach. The Makahuena at Poipu is also within walking distance to Keoniloa Bay and Shipwreck Beach to the east, both worth visiting.
This is the ideal condo for families and for those who don’t require constant nightlife. If you want glitter, action, crowds, noise and constant excitement, Waikiki is the place to be, but if you want peace and quiet, time to be together, to share, then it would be hard to find a lovelier condo than Makahuena at Poipu.
