About Great Vacation Retreats


Thank you for viewing our properties! Great Vacation Retreats is a boutique family run vacation rental company located on the beautiful island of Kauai! We have been managing properties on the Garden Isle and Kona since 2009. It can be overwhelming trying to pick out the right property -- we can help. Someone from our office is available almost 24 hours/day to answer your questions and help you find the perfect place to call home during your tropical getaway. We 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 :)

Guestbook comments from the manager

The condo is in good location with a short walk to Poipu beach and the balcony faces the ocean. The rooms are clean and the owner provides all necessary kitchen and bathroom supplies. The room condition is pretty close to the description.

A nice mid-priced condo with an ocean view in Poipu.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 10 day stay in our two bedroom two bath condo at Poipu Palms. Our condo was relatively new, clean, and well maintained. The furnishings and décor were nice, comfortable and tasteful. The kitchen, kitchen appliances, and washer dryer, were modern and in good condition. The kitchen layout with its large island and counter with stools was a nice place to gather and organize your island life. The bathrooms were clean with tile floors and tile tub and shower walls. The included midsize car is provided by Alamo. You pick it up and return it to the airport, which is handy.

The location of Poipu Palms is nice. From the pool area you have an expansive view, south and west, out to the ocean. We saw whales almost daily (February) we also saw sea turtles swimming in the waves. We walked down to the pool area many evenings to watch the sunset. It is a nice leisurely 15 minute walk to a fun bar and restaurant “Brennecke’s”. The condo has boogie boards and beach toys which can be used at the nice beaches in front of Brennecke’s. We also recommend the “Beach House” restaurant, 10 min west by car. The view is worth the short drive, go for lunch to get the most out of the view. There is also a nice beach there. Other restaurants worth mentioning are Keoki’s Paradise, an open air restaurant located on the road to Koloa. There are two nice Italian restaurants in Koloa and a fish market if you want to get fresh local fish and cook in the condo.

We would like to mention a few things that may or may not be important to other future guests. These things did not detract much from our stay, but they may be important to someone else. The condo has a view of the ocean, but not an expansive view. There is another condo building to the left which is closer to the ocean and blocks the view to the east. The view to the west is blocked by a side wall of the Poipu Palms building which extends 20 feet or so toward the ocean from the west side of this units lanai. Like many mid-priced condo units, this building is a wooden structure. Midway in our stay a young family checked into the condo above ours. For the remainder of our stay, the kids above us woke up at their mainland wake-up time, about 4:30 AM Hawaiian time. We could hear them jump out of bed and then seem to run endless laps of the condo above us. Despite the above minor things, we enjoyed our stay and recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. We appreciate your time to let future travelers hear about your experience. Poipu Palms is a great location on the south shore and whale watching from the lanai is a treat. We hope to see you again soon!

Convienient to so much.

  • 4 of 5

We like to go all over the island. Poi’pu is a great starting place for adventures in all directions. Less than an hour to the top of Waimae Canyon, an hour and a half from the Kalalau Trail. All the beaches, boats, surfing and eating anyone could want are somewhere in between. Not super tourist nor sleepy quiet, Poi’pu is the right size and speed for us. Winter visits allow for almost constant whale, sea turtle and dolphin viewing right from the condo.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the condo was excellent. We would recommend either portable air conditioning or better fan circulation. We felt a bit beat down after a long day in the sun and upon returning to the condo we never got relief from the heat entirely. Couple of things, one day an exterminator came in and we got a notice the evening before that they need us out at 9 am the next morning. That was disruptive as we needed that time to recoup. Also phone company came and woke us up from a lazy mid day nap, And we had no idea they were coming. But Thank you for the week it is a beautiful condo and a beautiful island. Great pool it really helped during the warm hours of the evening!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. It was quite warm for a few days with no trade winds. We do provide fans upon request and try to keep a couple extras in every property. We will check and make sure there are plenty there for future guests. We hope to see you again soon!

Perfect location in Poipu - Turtles love it too!

  • 5 of 5

This was a super comfortable condo with soft large beds, a well-designed kitchen and fantastic views. The pool is perched on top of the lava cliffs and has unending views of the ocean. Every time we looked we could see turtles swimming in the surf. We loved our stay here!

Thank you,

The Raymonds
