This three-bedroom home with a one-bedroom separate guest house will comfortably host you and your ohana just a 10-minute walk away from Brennecke’s Beach and award-winning Poipu Beach.

Once you've settled in, relax with a book in the back or front private yards while the kids play out in the lush, tropical grass. With two living rooms, each with a flat-screen cable TV, the adults can keep up with their favorite shows at the main house while the kids watch a movie in the guest house, or bring everyone together for family game night. Take the stairs in the atrium to watch the ocean and the sunset. You will see whales in the wintertime from up there.

Walk to Brennecke’s Beach Broiler for happy hour, then fire up the grill at home when dinnertime hits. The open kitchen has all the essentials, along with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and prep space for multiple cooks to whip up side dishes.

In the main home, three beautiful bedrooms sleep eight in two king-size beds, one queen-size bed and a sleeper sofa in the living room. The Makanui Bungalow guesthouse is a charming one-bedroom sanctuary next door with its own kitchen, BBQ, and two full baths. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, a queen bed with some privacy, a queen Murphy bed and a single day bed. Plus, you’ll enjoy exclusive ocean views from the second floor of the guest house.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets. Plus, you'll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.

Why We Love This Home

1. Guesthouse Serenity: This ocean-view crows nest accessed through stairs in the main house is a special treat. Take up a beverage and watch the ocean and the sunrise and sunset during most of the year.

2. Group Friendly: With multiple living areas - plus BBQ grills, laundry rooms, and quiet lanais at both the guesthouse and the main house - Makanui Estate makes group travel a little breezier.

3. A Prime Location: Not only are you a 10-minute walk to sand and surf, but you have championship golf courses, beachfront dining, botanical gardens, and a luxury spa all under 1.5 miles from home – to name a few.

With Poipu Beach Park and Brenneke’s Beach a short walk away, you have endless opportunities for snorkeling, paddle boarding, surfing, and whale watching. You may even spot a sunbathing Hawaiian Monk Seal! Less than a mile away at Poipu Shopping Village, boutiques, art galleries, great restaurants, and live Tahitian dance and Hula shows offer an authentic taste of Hawaii.

For adventure lovers, Kauai’s South Shore will not disappoint. Get an aerial view of the island with an Eco Adventure Helicopter Tour, zipline through the jungle, embark on a sunset cruise, or explore the Koloa Heritage Trail.
