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.

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.

David Hatfield purchased this condo in 2014

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.

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!

Incredible views and a great space for the family!

  • 5 of 5

The best word to describe our experience is AWESOME. The condo was VERY comfortable for our family of six and completely set up with just about everything we needed for our two week stay, except of course food. The owners David and Kim were in contact with us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed, and responded immediately to the one item we asked for. The hardest thing we had to deal with frankly was saying goodbye to it at the end of our stay. We most definitely will visit again if David and Kim are still offering the unit. We had a wonderful time! 5 Stars doesn't cover it!!

Well designed, supplied and maintained. Fabulous view of the surf and coastline.

  • 5 of 5

This property is conveniently located to shops and restaurants in Koloa and Poipu. Easy walk or short drive to Poipu Beach and easy access to/from Lihue airport and to major shopping stops like Safeway and Costco on the way. A well supplied kitchen and great view made it a perfect place to eat in some nights and dine out others. Several good restaurants within 5-10 minute drive. Our favorite was Red Salt. Only criticism would be that the community pool was very small and appeared in need of cleaning the first few days we were there but this was not important to us.

I have to come back to the condo unit itself. Once you are there you won't want to leave. The view, the crashing surf and the warm wind never get old and you just have to decide which room or lanai to stock with your favorite island food and drink and take it all in.

We appreciated that the owners checked in before and after arrival and every few days while we were there to see if we needed anything. Thanks to them for doing everything necessary for us to have a great winter getaway. We hope to do it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Thomas for being such a wonderful guest. We're glad you had such a great time. We remember you mentioning your favorite place in all of Kauai was our lanai! That's truly an awesome compliment and we're glad you appreciated the spectacular view :) Thank you for telling us about the pool condition. It's disappointing to hear it was not super clean during your stay. We have passed your concerns on to the property manager. We're so glad you had a great time and we welcome you back anytime! Thanks again. Mahalo!
