About the property

Gorgeous 3 Bedroom 3 Bath Where The Crashing Surf Meets Land

Our home has been completely remodeled! The one thing that didn't change was the view. It's incredible. It''s mesmerizing. We fell in love with the location so we bought it! We read the old reviews and we agreed with them. The place was dated, but the view made every minute worth being here. Now have now brought the inside up to par with the outside. Everything has been redone.

The colors of the sand, sea and sky fill this 3 bedroom 3 bath condo. You can start your day with coffee on the spacious lanai and enjoy the sunrise. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, full sized range, refrigerator and microwave. There's new granite counter tops and white cheery cabinets. The kitchen even offers an oceanfront view! The condo is complete with two master suites, perfect for two families. The downstairs master offers a quiet garden view with rich deep koa wood tones. The upstairs master offers a spa like feel complete with a soaking tub. We've created a media loft complete with surround sound and a 70' TV with Netflix, perfect for watching a movie or favorite sporting event. We have the fastest wifi available on the island, a blazing 200mbps. We have even replaced all of the windows to make the most of the view! You can see the results for yourself by requesting our free eBook.

Perhaps the best feature is that there is nothing between you and the ocean except a 10 yard grass lawn. It's a secluded, romantic, awe inspiring location. If you're looking for crowds, you can always visit the local resorts that are just a short trip away. You will love this place!

**U.S. News & World Report listed Kauai a “Top 5 Best Beach Honeymoon Destination” noting the island’s beautiful parks, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling.

**Kauai was recently recognized as the most romantic place to celebrate an anniversary by USA Today's 10 Best Awards.

** EZ walk to the Grand Hyatt if you have meetings there.

For your next visit, please consider our Kapaa Oceanfront Studios. We have 3 direct oceanfront studios, one on each floor, that are steps away from a sandy beach :) VRBO #626792, 789217 & 731132).

About David Hatfield

Have you ever wondered what your travel dollars support? Do they go to a large corporation or perhaps a wealthy landlord? We're a bit different. Seven years ago we started a nonprofit and our primary ministry is a preschool for children ages 3-6 that live at a garbage dump. The funds we receive from this unit helps provide an income for us to continue our efforts to serve the poor around the world. Next year we are entering a new season in our lives. Our kids will be grown and off to college which will allow us to spend more time at our preschool. Our plan is to sell our traditional home in California and when we are not serving abroad, we will use short term vacation rentals as our 'home base'. So the place you are staying in is not just a 'rental' to us, it's also our home. I bet you never thought you could have a vacation in paradise and support children in need at the same time. Thank you for choosing this beautiful place to stay.

Why David Hatfield chose South Shore

Welcome to our home! This is not just a rental to us, this is our home. We searched the globe to find a place that we could relax and recover from the harsh environments we are in while serving. Poipu Makai D3 was it! The place was a bit dated when we purchased it, so we have completely remodeled it. Everything is bright and new. It's our dream home and we are happy to share it with you. It's a great place to make memories that will last a lifetime.

What makes this condo unique

Simply put, the view is stunning and the entire unit has undergone a total remodel.

The views are stunning and accommodations both luxurious and confortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and twin sons (now 17 years of age) have been to Kauai six times and this condo is by far the best accommodations we have experienced. The condo is right on the ocean and the views are really special, especially looking west toward Poipu beach and beyond. This time we were joined by my brother and his wife, and there was more than enough room for the six of us. We loved going out on the patio for breakfast each morning, watching the waves crash over the volcanic rock shore and the turtles ride the swells. And the patio was also a great spot to watch the sunset in the evenings, too. The upstairs entertainment area, with the very big screen TV was a great place to relax after sunset and a full day of activities. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We would return in a heartbeat.

A condo with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many beach rentals in NC, SC, and FL since 1986. None compared to David and Kim's condo in terms of the view, location, quality kitchenware and a well stocked pantry. It was obvious that the owners cared very much about the comfort of their renters as they think of every little thing to provide. As my daughters and I prepared our first dinner, we were pleased to find that the pantry has all the necessary condiments that we needed and the knives, oh yes... the knives are sharp....finally, I finally found a rental property with a good set of knives (I used to pack one of my Wusthof kitchen knives on my mainland vacations). We also appreciate the zip locks. They are wonderful for packing sandwiches for our beach and hiking trips. (Btw, Poipu beach is very closeby and Kailalau Trail is a must). One excited moment was when I saw dolphins swimming toward the condo, not far from the rocks. It happened so fast, by the time my husband ran for the camera, they were gone. We saw plenty of sea turtles though.

Now, the down side: this condo doesn't have A/C. We knew it when booked and thought the breeze from the ocean would provide the cool air. This is true for night time but during the day, the 2 nd floor gets hot and uncomfortable. This is a minor problem for us as we spent most of the time during the day at the beach or hiking. Also, there are no elevators on the complex, could be an issue for some.

Overall it was an excellent stay. We enjoyed it very much. We would rent it again as we are planning to stop by Kauai next year on our way to Fiji for our 30 year anniversary. Thank you, David and Kim, for sharing your condo and provided our family a slice of paradise.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lana! Thanks for being such a wonderful guest. It was our pleasure to host you. We do our best to stock the kitchen well so that our guests can enjoy cooking meals at home if they want to. It can result in a big savings on the vacation budget. We agree, the view from the lanai is truly spectacular! It's a great spot to see the entire coast from Poipu past Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn and even Ni'ihau. Your stay fell at one of the warmest times we've had in quite a while. A series of 3 hurricanes made our winds die down and increased the humidity. It was super warm even for us locals. We can't wait to have you back net year on your way to Fiji. Mahalo and see you soon!

Stunning views in the southern Poipu Beach area of Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

The views are absolute spectacular and the hosts David and Kim are attentive and helpful. The condo is well appointed with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed our stay. Note to those traveling with seniors and/or younger kids: there is no AC which was fine for most in our party but could be a consideration for some others. We would recommend to those wanting a true local Kauai experience!

Beautiful views, clean and modern with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous condo overlooking the ocean- with views of turtles and dolphins! Close to excellent restaurants and easy drives to gorgeous Kauai sites like Waimea, excursions and trails on Napali coast. Note no air conditioning (no issue though as a beautiful breeze is constant and many fans are provided if needed) and 2 flight of stairs down (from parking) and 2 flights of stairs up to condo but worth it if stairs aren't not an issue for you. The scenery can't be beat and we loved our stay here!! Great communication by owners Dave and Kim. Highly recommend and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely Heaven on earth!! The views from the property just blow your mind . I could have just sat on the Lania watching the turtles , sunset forever . The property was equipped with everything you need and more.

Just a small suggestion a blind in the master bedroom , not that you need it for privacy only the sea turtles in front of you , purely to keep that sunshine out first thing . Nice to have a lie in on vacation . Would definitely love to share your wonderful property again soon. Thank you both

The property was beautiful! Looking right down over the ocean was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was very well kept and nicely decorated!! We were a party of three couples. There were three bedrooms. The property offers three full baths as well which is nice but one was a hall bathroom. Probably for our group, three private bathrooms would have been better. We would recommend this property for sure for anybody going to Kauai! The kitchen was very well equipped and the owners also provided Beach stuff (snorkeling equipment, Beach chairs, towels, whatever you need. The location is perfect!
