Perched on a rock bluff at the southernmost point of Kauai, the condominiums at Makahuena at Poipu afford guests the unique opportunity to see both the sunrise and sunset each day.

The resort is made up of a cluster of two- and three-story buildings (note there are no elevators), and there’s a pool, hot tub, tennis court and barbecue grills. Each of the one-, two- and three-bedroom units are individually decorated. All have full kitchens, washers and dryers, and private lanais to enjoy the ocean breezes.

The golden shores of Poipu Beach are just a 10-minute walk away. Here, there’s a lifeguard on duty seven days a week, and the calm coastline is made of a series of crescents, forming natural wading pools perfect for snorkeling, swimming and splashing around. At dusk, participate in a traditional luau experience at Aulii Luau, a six-minute car ride to the west.
