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.

Christmas on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Kim and David have done a beautiful job modernizing this condo. The location is hard to beat and the spaciousness of the unit is rare in Poipu. My husband and I live in the northeast. Our daughter and husband joined us from the U.K. and son and his fiancée from the west coast to share in a special holiday week together. We were so lucky to have found this unit. It accommodates 3 couples comfortably and invites you to spend your evenings on the large lanai. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. We have been coming to the islands for year and find it refreshing to stay in a modern, up to date condo. They have most every convenience imaginable. Kim and David have done a beautiful job and show a level of interest in making your stay pleasant, beyond any owners we have experienced in the past. We highly recommend staying in here.

It met and exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Turtles right out the back lanai daily, whales and dolphins in the distance pretty regular. However, there was more that was not described, accoutrements for basic cooking/baking, bathroom toiletries, and incidental beach sundries all for your needs. If possible check out the supplies before making the Costco/grocery run. The ocean sound in the master bedroom actually amplified the ocean waves lapping against the lava sea wall. The media room provides a great place for family time. The toy closest is perfect fun included. The year old renovation was thought out in every last detail; even a night light in master bathroom builtin was impressive. Dawn and crew do a very thorough cleaning so it is picture perfect upon entry. Walking distance to the beach. Saw a beached green sea turkey as the State Park nearby(keep 10 feet distance respectfully plus it's the law). Customer service: awesome. Poipu Makai was the best part of the whole vacation.

Things for improvement:

do not consider the swimming pool option as this is really a 4 foot small pool sandwiched between building and parking. This spaced should really be converted to a hot tub or more BBQ patio space.

The beds should all have toppers put on them as all stayed they were a bit firm.

And my husband says I like firm beds but not so restful.

Nearby activities:

Walk to Brennecke Beach to boogie board, Poipu Beach Park to snorkel/swim

Drive to: National Tropical Botanical Gardens (a bit expensive but if you like this kind of learning it's worth it)

Spouting Horn (free)

Waimea Canyon cool hiking (free)

Restaurants endorsements from a discerning audience:

Pizzetta in Koloa from scratch pizza and pasta

Merriman's Gourmet pizza and burgers (still a bit pricey at happy hour but quality taste and beverage)

The outdoor (gourmet foods) culinary market located at Kukuiula Shops on Wednesday's 3:30-6:00

Hanalei Taro Co.- hummus

Kim Chee, pickled onions and cucumbers (can't remember company name but at the markets)

Icy Hot Noni essential for aches and pains from vacation

Just to name few of what we tried and loved.

Food wise try one item at each vendor sharing with the group is fun and adventurous.

Costco is a must for a week stay or longer

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent a great week in Kauai at Poipu Makai Property 626789. The condo was great and the view was amazing. The condo had everything we needed and more. We enjoy cooking and the well appointed kitchen with the spectacular view were a highlight. We also enjoyed watching movies at night with the kids in the media loft. Dave and Kim made us feel welcome and I could tell they really wanted us to feel at home. Our only negative was the pool at the condo complex. Because we didn't have the best weather while we were there, my kids would have used the pool more if the water wasn't so cold. Great place, though! Thanks, Dave and Kim!

Owner's Response: Thanks Amy for the 5 star review. The location of the condo offers a spectacular view and we worked hard on the remodel to make the inside just as nice as the outside. We're glad you particularly enjoyed the kitchen and media loft. I do wish you would have let either Dawn or myself know about the pool, we could have had the heat turned up! Thanks again for staying with us and being such a wonderful guest. We look forward to having you back!

This was by far the best view in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful experience and we highly recommend this beautiful luxury condo to friends and family. Dave and Kim were such gracious hosts. They ensured we were well prepared before arriving, with directions from the Airport and suggestions on were we should stop for groceries. We were absolutely blown away when we walked through the door and saw the view. It was spectacular. Even more beautiful than the VRBO pictures. There was plenty of room for the six of us (adults). The kitchen was so well stocked that it was a pleasure to dine in. And the bedding and towels (beach and bath) were luxurious. Dave and Kim thought of absolutely everything. It was easy to call this place home for a week. Thank you again, Dave and Kim, for such a wonderful experience! The Duncan Family

Great View!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the view! ....About a 20 minute walk to Poipu Beach and a 20 minute walk the other way to shipwreck Beach. The condo was great. A few things would have made it perfect: air-conditioning , and a few more steak knives. Other than that, our stay was absolutely wonderful! The owners could not have been any better!

Awesome home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the VIEW and the crashing of the waves!! Many hours were spent starring out at the ocean. Turtles visited every morning. We were home everyday to catch the sunset- truly gorgeous.

The condo was well stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards and even a few masks and fins. The kitchen had every appliance you could ever want or need. Better quality than my own kitchen!

The condo was spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were large and beautifully remodeled and even shampoo, body wash and hair dryers was provided!

Although we did not watch a lot of TV, the 70in big screen came in handy to watch the baseball play-offs. The Wi-Fi was easy to connect to and was fast!

The beach was an easy 10 minute walk and the grocery store was an easy 5 minute drive.

David (owner) checked in several times before arrival and while we were on Kauai, what owner does that?

We will definitely stay here again! Loved it!
