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."

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!!

Condo in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. Very well furnished and beautifully decorated. The sound of the ocean splashing on the rocks surrounding the property was wonderful. So was the view with first-rate seating to look at the sunset every night while sipping a drink on the lanai. The owners gave us lots of very useful information about the area.

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

This condo was above and beyond our expectations👍 Beautiful decor- amazing views from the property- amenities that we used daily: beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and beach umbrella - fabulous and useful suggestions from the owners including things to see and do, directions and advice to use their electronics. Their enthusiasm for their property was contagious. We appreciated each aspect of this property!

An incredible find, and even better stay!

  • 5 of 5

When I found this unit on VRBO, the unit looked like it was nice. But as those things go, "you never know" until you get there. When we got there, it was DEFINITELY nice! The owners, Ted & Marcie have built a lovely and spacious condo for couples and small families. The property is right on the south tip of the island, so the waves splash (and crash, if there's a swell) up against the rocks below. For me, this is heaven. The very first afternoon we saw a bunch of turtles and a sunset that was easily on par with one of the best I've ever seen. The next morning, we saw a pod of ~50 dolphins! The rooms were nice. Everything was clean. The bathrooms & kitchen were redone, and the kitchen had literally every kind of cutter (pineapples), grinder, rice cooker, etc. We BBQ'd and had many meals at home on their lanai, enjoying the environment.

Each morning, I had to work in the early hours while everyone slept. The internet connection was superb. We watched Netflix at night before bed. Made yummy coffee each morning (whole bean, from Kauai Coffee Co a few miles away), didn't have any trouble w/ mosquitoes, trades blew most of the time. It truly is a great property and would go again in a heartbeat.

Now, for a few nuancey things:

* FANS - they had fans in every room, but the one in the main room wasn't as strong as I would've preferred (I was working at the table with my computer). I ended up buying a small Honeywell from Walmart and took it home with me... so it was fine.

* BATHROOMS - The shampoo dispenser in the hall bathroom didn't work (no biggie). The master bath was narrow with an "open shower". It's nice, but a little squishy for a big guy like me. Be sure to keep a shower mat as water will spray out if you're not careful. Again, nit-picky stuff

* POOL - The pool area is adjacent to the D building and D1 is "right there" when kids are playing. The good news is that the hours are from 7AM - 7PM. Everyone was pretty respectful although some nucklehead parents attempted to let their kids play in there by themselves at 6:30AM. I asked for them to stop and they were respectful.

* DRIVEWAY - If you're driving a sedan, be a little careful going in and out of the parking area as you will scrape. It was nice having covered parking

Other than that, I really don't have anything bad to report. If you're planning a stay in Poipu, you should consider staying here. It's nice, quiet, kempt, well-designed, and right on the ocean!! We'll come back for sure!!!

Unforgettable

  • 4 of 5

We will always cherish our trip to Kauai! It is one of the spectacular places of the world. And our apartment in Poipu Makai was perfect. Incredible views from porch and outdoor dinning place. All the amenities were there and our two grandchildren slept very comfortably on the sofa futon and enjoyed the small pool. We would surely recommend it as the place to stay when in Kauai.

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.
