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!

Beautiful and amazing indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible space. We walked in and couldn't believe the view. The space was very clean and we had more than enough amenities. The lanai was probably our favorite part of the space! The views were incredible, very private feeling, and turtles just below! Ted and Marcie were very easy to communicate with. Ted was very responsive when I had an issue opening the safe (due to user error, I think...). They were lovely to work with and I definitely would want to return. Thank you so much, you two. You made the entry into 2017 incredible. We are very grateful. <3

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a blissful 4 days/nights at Ted and Marci's condo. The space was so comfortable, clean and well decorated. The view and outside space are unbelievable. We wanted to see turtles and whales, both of which were in abundance right in front of the condo. The short walk down to the rocky cove is easy and we saw more than 12 turtles right there. The neighborhood is pretty, bananas grow on trees just down the street, and the nearby beaches and restaurants were fabulous. It couldn't have been more perfect. Can't wait to come back. Mahalo!!

Nice property, oceanfront, well placed in Poipu

  • 3 of 5

Accomodating owners, recent remodelled kitchen. Clean overall, however a bit dated. It will be great to leave the fans running when guests are expected to occupy the property. Otherwise, a musty smell will be felt.

It's great for groups a friends, young small family favoring privacy and closeness to the beach, restaurants...

Owner's Response: We make every attempt to provide a well-appointed, clean and comfortable space for our guest to call “home”. In this effort, we have replaced the washer and dryer, both bedroom draperies and bedspreads, as well as the master bathroom vanity within the last month. Both bathrooms have been newly remodeled in the last 2 years and all furnishings are 3 years new to the condo. The kitchen décor is more of a modern motif, while we have chosen to keep the rest of the condo in a topical décor to reflect island life. The use of bamboo, wood and rattan and local art may not be perceived as “updated” as it is not contemporary décor, however it is new and is accurately reflected in our photos on the VRBO site. We are sorry it did not meet your expectations. Regarding the fans, we normally do have them on for our guest’s arrival as well as lights if we know there will be a late check in. We’ve contacted our local management company to make sure this is not missed in the future. The odor is perplexing, as this is the first we’ve heard this in the almost 4 years of owning the condo or in any of our 35+ positive reviews. Our management company sent someone to see if they could smell the odor or check to see what might be causing it. They could not detect any odors or issues. All we could think of is at the time of your stay there had been two Pacific storms which triggered two storm/flood watches for Kauai. This is not normal but it does occasionally happen. Normally, “our side” of the island is the sunnier, dryer side, however when those storms hit, the island gets drenched. It appears that that the Kauai sunshine dried things up nicely.

Great location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Poipu location is fantastic, and being on the first floor was nice in that it made access to the grass area very accessible. The kitchen was well-outfitted, and everything was clean and functional. Lots of binoculars, beach towels and chairs as well. Overall, a great place to stay. A few notes: if you're a pool person, know that it is small and cold. Also, the WiFi is very slow if you're counting on that, and there is a single service for TV/WiFi/Phone, all of which went out twice for several hours while we were there. That coupled with no cell service by the water made planning difficult.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your compliments on our condo. We are pleased to be able to offer free Wi-Fi/Netflix to our guests along with free phone service to Canada and the U.S. Being on a small island with one cable company (Oceanic Cable) sometimes has its issues with service--especially when they are doing upgrades. Fortunately, when outages do happen, they typically are not for very long. We are sorry your stay happened during one of these times. The pool does tend to be cool in the winter months, but is quite comfortable the majority of the year.

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.
