When you are relaxing at Poipu Shores in a beautiful oceanfront vacation rental, it will become immediately obvious why this is one of the most sought-after locations on Kauai. This beautiful oceanfront retreat has breathtaking views where you can watch the turtles swim below daily.

Located on Kauai`s beautiful South Shore, Poipu Shores has one of the best views on the Island of Kauai. Imagine yourself sitting on your lanai admiring the rainbows or watching the sunrise over the water with the gentle trade winds flowing by. This is an ideal spot for dolphin and whale watching (in season) as well.

Just minutes away, the world famous Poipu Beach offers a beautiful spot perfect for swimming, snorkeling or laying out in the sunshine. While snorkeling in Poipu, you will discover a variety of colorful fish, including the state fish--Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. There is a wading lagoon for toddlers and young swimmers. Poipu Beach also has a large grassy park with children`s play area, picnic area, showers and restrooms. Brenneke`s Beachside Deli, across the street, offers cold drinks, snacks, and the South Shore`s most popular shaved ice! Stop by the deli for delicious sandwiches, all kinds of snacks and treats, and the cool relief of shaved ice.

Adjacent to Poipu Beach, you will find Brennecke`s Beach, one of the top body surfing and body boarding beaches on Kauai. Waves break consistently throughout the year, but it is usually best during the summer months.

There are two restaurants less than a ten-minute walk from Poipu Shores vacation condos. Casa di Amici`s dining room is open-air, al fresco, casual, romantic, take-your-time dining at its finest with grand piano music on Saturday nights. Brennecke`s Beach Broiler overlooks Poipu Beach where you can enjoy steak, seafood, pasta, sandwiches and an assortment of organic salad selections. Their bar is a great stop for pupus and to watch a game.

                On 12/18/13 I arrived at Poipu Shores for a 2 month stay. Within that day I realized how extremely dirty was the condo, and that many projects needed repair and/or replacement. A deeper than surface cleaning was necessary. During the following 3 weeks the maintenance man was there about 2X/week. (I hope the refrigerator was replaced, as it froze everything in the bottom, and leaked water all over the entry.) Although the view was lovely, I truly believe the condo was over-priced, due in part to all the work that needed to be accomplished and the fact it did not seem to be well maintained. This condo looked worn and old! To command the price it needs a complete update, replacing the 1980s look and feel of the place, and its furniture. Lesson learned, demand that whatever you rent, it is sparkling clean when you walk through the door. All agencies should have a quality control system in place so that clients are assured deep cleaning, and good care, has been given to their choice of rental. As this was the 3rd time I have encountered such a situation, I am still disturbed by what I had to contend with, and feel a deep distrust of working ever again with rental agencies. I can not offer a good recommendation.

                Recommended for: Age 55+.

                Manager response: Again, I would like to thank you for taking the time to let us know in detail what you liked about the property and also about the negative experiences you had in the letter that you dropped off at our office. We did receive and review your letter in great detail with the staff. We take all feedback very seriously. I do feel that we let you down by having sub par cleaning which is not our normal standard and we have addressed everything with the cleaning staff and inspectors to hopefully eliminate these issues in the future. While some of the issues are from an older property and out of our control there were some items that definitely should have been noticed prior to your arrival. I know we had offered to have someone come to address the cleaning issues which you declined. I wish that you would have let us come and re-clean the property and address the issues so that you were not bothered with them during your stay. In regards to the maintenance issues brought to our attention during your stay and in your letter it is our policy to do our best to have everything fixed that is brought to our attention in a timely manner. It is always very disappointing to us at Great Vacation Retreats when we do not have a happy guest. We are very careful to depict every condo and home with great accuracy with many photographs and do rent specific properties so the guest knows where they will be staying. Poipu Shores commands larger nightly rates because of its views which are some of the best in Poipu. We represent both fully remodeled condos and some that are not remodeled and they are priced accordingly. We did offer to come back and take care of anything that needed to be corrected. Our handyman thought he had fixed the fridge and was very sad that you did not let him know that it was not working immediately so we could have replaced it then. It is a shame that you have had issues with several management companies as most guests enjoy having an on-island company to take care of everything for them. We did our very best to generously compensate you for any inconveniences. I hope you have some happy memories while spending part of your winter on beautiful Kauai.

                We stayed in unit 302a at Poipu Shores and we booked it through Great Vacation Retreats. It was a wonderful experience from the first contact until the very end. Everybody at Great Vacations were friendly and very helpful. They had great ideas for excursions and discounts. We had a rental car that came with the unit. Lou met us at the airport in our car and also drove us back to the airport. It felt like we had known Lou for a long time. The unit we stayed in was great. The view was to die for. Very clean and we had everything we needed for the kitchen, laundry, beach and bathrooms. The Lanai was a wonderful place to watch the waves and sea turtles. Great walking distance to everything we wanted. Kauai is just a perfect little island. Everybody we dealt with (from Great Vacations to the residentes) was like talking to friends. I can't wait to go back.

              Manager info

              About: Aloha~ Thank you for viewing my properties! My name is Amy Grant and I own a boutique vacation management company in Kauai called Great Vacation Retreats. I happily work and reside in Kauai and have been managing vacation rentals on the Garden Isle for almost 4 years. Been married to my husband, Scott, since 2003 and we have a beautiful little girl named Presley. When we aren't busy chasing her around, we enjoy going to the beach, cooking and traveling. I love working with my guests to find the perfect place for them to call home while on vacation. It can be overwhelming trying to pick out the right property -- I can help. My staff and I take great pride in the properties we manage and believe that we truly have some of the best properties the island has to offer. We have been in each property numerous times and stayed in most so that we can give you an accurate description of what each property's amenities are, distances to the beach, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We can also help you with any activities you might be interested in while on island such as surfing lessons, private boat charters, guided hikes, stand up paddling, personal chef, childcare and much more! Mahalo for looking :)

              Why Poipu Shores:
              My husband and I were married at Kee Beach on the North Shore and visited the island several times after. We used to manage vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe and many of the owners also owned property in Kauai and asked if we would be interested in starting a business here. After a couple of years, we finally made the move and have been blissfully happy ever since. The island has so much natural beauty and outdoor activities, yet it still doesn't have that 'big resort' feel. It is a great, safe place for children and also makes for a perfect honeymoon or anniversary destination.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              There are so many outdoor activities to enjoy here -- going to the beach, surfing, stand up paddling, horseback riding, hiking, sightseeing, taking a boat charter along the Napali Coast, kayaking, camping, biking, etc. I enjoy getting a spa treatment at the Anara Day Spa at the Hyatt. If you enjoy going to a spa, their facial is perfect. My husband and I met at culinary school and consider ourselves 'foodies'. We love the Kilauea Bakery for a great cup of coffee and the bialys (stuffed bagels) are amazing. Some other restaurants that we enjoy are Josselins, the Kalaheo Café, Postcards, Roy’s, Tip Top Café and Kauai Pasta just to name a few. There are some wonderful farmers markets here and fish markets (Hanalei Dolphin is the best) with their fresh local catches of the day. Ahi is, of course, an island favorite and can be found at many of the restaurants throughout the island. Whale watching is from December - March and is quite a sight to see. Some of the best golf courses in the US are located in Kauai. We work with some activity providers that provide personalized hikes and activities that are 'off the beaten path' and truly show you what Kauai has to offer.
