About Ted and Marcie Worster

We have had the wonderful opportunity to live on Oahu for 8 years and have our children born in Hawaii. Although we now live on the 'Mainland' we feel a strong connection to the islands. During our many trips to the 'outer islands', Kauai has always stood out as being the most peaceful and lush. We knew, eventually, we would be back and we chose the beautiful island of Kauai and Poipu Makai.

Ted and Marcie Worster purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ted and Marcie Worster chose Poipu

The island of Kauai has everything you would want in a vacation destination. It is filled with natural beauty everywhere you look and you can be as adventurous or laid-back as you want. Poipu Makai fits in beautifully with the surroundings and is within walking distance of many restaurants, beaches and trails, yet it remains a quiet, relaxing place to retreat to at the end of the day.

What makes this condo unique

We are 'Sunset People'. We also love being as close to the Ocean as possible!. When you first step inside Poipu Makai D1, the view will take your breath away-it is just stunning. In the mornings, there is nothing better than having your first cup of coffee on the lanai and possibly catching a glimpse of a dolphin, and having your second cup on the secluded lava beach in front of your condo and watching the turtles feed. In the evenings, regardless of where you are, you will want to rush back by sunset to take in the best view in Kauai--it is right outside your door!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The condo is amazing and perfect! We saw the most beautiful sunset. The condo has everything one would need. Super happy! Thank you for sharing your paradise with us."

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo location made it easy for us to see the rest of the island.

We enjoyed the ocean view from the very comfortable living room. The furnishings make it welcoming.

The island breezes that flow through the condo made it comfortable.

Perfect place to Stay in Poipu.

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great place to spend our time on Kauai. We had many whale sightings any time during the day and a few times dolphins. Turtles were always seen along the coastline, just a few steps off the lanai. We enjoyed daily 10 minute walks to either Shipwreck Beach or Poipu Beach where we always saw turtles and seals resting on the beach. This place is great for enjoying the beautiful Hawaiian sunsets. We were impressed by the excellent service by the owners and this place has everything one needs to stay. Thank you Ted and Marcie.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in a great location. Tastefully decorated with every little detail taken care of. Marcie is one of the best hosts ever. She helped us with suggestions during the booking process and during our stay as well. 6 of us stayed here very comfortably. Highly recommend this condo.

Mahalo Marcie!

Loved our stay at Poipu Makai.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. The location was excellent and condo was everything we could have asked for. From the amazing view, to a well stocked kitchen and everything in between was pretty much perfection. Not one single regret about our choice to rent here.

Fantastic Condo - Great area

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Kauai was terrific & your condo only improved our experience. We have never stayed in a better equipped place - especially the kitchen - wow!! And the decor - stunning - so much attention to detail - it really did feel like a “home”. A small suggestion - the front door area is very dark & the light only comes on at night. So it was really hard to find the door handle, etc during the day - if there’s a way to get around that it would be helpful to folks. Otherwise, people can’t ask for a better place for their Kauai stay. Mahalo for a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind and complimentary review on our Poipu Makai condo. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate that you took the time to let others know of your experience. We really do enjoy sharing our 'little piece of paradise' with others and it is such a pleasure to know that you had a memorable time. We agree that the entry to the front door can be dark and we are installing a motion detector light to resolve the issue. Thank you for the suggestion! Mahalo Nui Loa, Marcie and Ted

Perfect Spot In Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location on the south shore. My husband and I travelled here for our third time. This was by far the best location we have ever stayed. The views were STUNNING. And the sounds of the waves hitting the lava rocks below is a sound we all were impressed by! The condo itself was so spacious. Six adults stayed here and we never felt cramped and that we had enough space to sit and relax. The lanai was perfect for breakfast and watching the island come alive. Staying on the south shore is great because accessing the other parts of the islands doesn't take too long and it's great to feel somewhat centralized. We would absolutely recommend this location and rental to all of our friends and family who are looking for a perfect stay. I felt we really got a lot for the value of what we paid. Also Marcie and Ted were extremely prompt on answering questions and corresponding. Just an amazing experience overall and memories for a lifetime created while we were there. Thanks so much!!
