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 South Shore

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

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Poipu Makai for 2 weeks while on Kauai in unit D1.

We found it very clean, kitchen well stocked with pots and pans, and super comfortable beds.

Sitting out on our lanai for early morning coffee and evening dinners was amazing, while we listened to the pounding surf below. We had the privilege one morning, to see a large pod of spinnaker dolphins just off shore!

I would highly recommend Ted and Marcie's place. In addition, Marcie has been awesome with her communication with me prior to and during our stay. Her directions and suggestions for markets/stores were much appreciated.

Thank-you Ted and Marcie for sharing your lovely home!!

Good Choice

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo that is well maintained. Everything has a new feel and you don't often see a bathroom for each bedroom. The location for the island is practical for all the activities that you might consider. The comments about the entrance being a car scraper are correct, but we found if we always entered from the right side we were fine. The view from the lanai's are gorgeous. We watched whales from the lanai, but due to the dropoff just after the landscape you don't see your immediate shoreline. So sea turtles were regularly seen when you walked to the edge of the property. Still a wonderful view and we would recommend staying here.

3/6/2017 to 3/10/2017 Awesome!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what can we say, this place is so amazing! The view right next to the ocean is spectacular! We saw whales one morning right outside the condo, plus the sea turtles were so fun to watch. We would definitely stay here again! Plus we went on a whale watching tour and were treated to a whole pod of whales. One even completely jumped out of the water and made a splash landing! It was once in a lifetime experience! Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo!! There is everything you need here, binoculars, towels, umbrellas and the beds were very nice too! We will be back! Peace and love to you all, Sue & John Douros and Paul & Tami Hoffman from Price, Utah

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was fantastic. The views from the patio area as well as kitchen and living areas of the condo are priceless. The sunsets are magnificent. We found the condo to be well stocked from entertainment, kitchen, and bathroom. There are plenty of towels for bath and a large enough hot water heater for showers and laundry. The beds are extremely comfortable with extra blankets and pillows.

There are plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers, umbrellas, binoculars and pool noodles and kick boards. The beach is within easy walking distance, however if you are taking a bunch of beach gear and a full cooler you may want to consider driving. The beach area offers turtles and monk seals for a magnificent experience. The water is so clear you can view colorful fish with your naked eyes.

The pool and grill area are just outside your back door. The area is well maintained. The pool is small, as pictured, and gets very little sun due to the magnificent foliage growing around the area. While we were there we never saw anyone use the pool. The beach is a great alternative.

Around the condo area is a path down to the lava rocks to see the turtles. Nature is everywhere with whale viewing, birds, dolphins, sea turtles and more. It great to watch the boats, paddle boards, surfers, and kayakers pass by.

We had a minor issue which was addressed immediately. Ted and Marcie went above and beyond to make sure it was resolved quickly and checked back to make sure it was resolved to our satisfaction. Our expectations were exceeded.

A minor inconvenience is the parking area. The area is crowded and it is difficult to maneuver the structure. The driveway entry to get in and out of the condo is in need of some repair. The uneven surface causes the car to scrape bottom on the way in an out. This is no fault to this condominium owner. Just use caution and go slowly. Street parking is available and ample.

Overall this property is highly recommended. It was very clean, well maintained, nicely decorated, well stocked and ideal for couples and families.

Poipu Makai D-1 is near several restaurants and shopping as well as water activities; all within walking or biking distance. Driving distance to several other Kauai attractions such as Waimea Canyon and the Napili Coast. However, much of your time will be spent at your condo enjoying the ocean view and spectacular sunsets.
