Whether it’s fun and adventure or rest and relaxation you came for, you and your ohana will have it all at this two-bedroom ocean-view retreat on the Poipu greenbelt, just a short walk from Shipwreck Beach.

With two levels of breezy, open living and sleeping space, this spacious condo makes it easy for everyone spread out and do their own thing or come together for some quality family time. Gather around for game night in the living room or cuddle up for a movie on the flat-screen cable TV with DVD player. At mealtime, pull up that new recipe on the WiFi and get cooking in the perfectly appointed, open kitchen. Enjoy alfresco family meals with pool and beach views on the lanai, or dig in at the dining table for four.

When it’s time to turn in, the adults will love the added privacy of a top-floor master suite. With a comfy king-size bed, its own flat-screen TV with a Bluray player, and a luxurious en-suite bath with a walk-in shower and bidet, you’ll have no problem unwinding. Let the kids claim the two twin-size beds (can be converted to a king-size) in the downstairs en-suite bedroom, and if you’re traveling with six, a sleeper sofa in the living room will comfortably sleep two more. Plus, you’ll have the convenience of an in-house washer and dryer to keep packing light!

About Owner/Manager

Aloha~ 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 :)

Why Owner/Manager chose Poipu

Awesome Amenities: When you stay at Poipu Sands, you’ll not only have an on site pool and tennis court just steps away, plus three beaches under a 15-minute walk, but you’ll also have access to Poipu Kai’s community tennis courts, pool, and hot tub too.

Tropical Paradise: Soak up dramatic sunrises and sunsets from two private lanais, and on most Thursday and Sunday nights, unwind to the beat of luau drums while sipping wine beneath a starry sky.

Explorer’s Dream: While you’ll have plenty to do within walking distance, why not see what adventures the Garden Isle has in store with the free midsize car rental included?

What makes this condo unique

Follow the path along the Poipu Greenbelt for a less than five-minute walk to Shipwreck’s Beach, explore the scenic Maha'ulepu Coastal Trail while scoping for sea turtles and Hawaiian Monk Seals, or check out award-winning Poipu Beach, just a 10-15 minute stroll from the resort. Situated on seven acres of tropical landscaping next to the Grand Hyatt Kauai, Poipu Sands also puts you right next door to restaurants, shops, live entertainment, and world-famous Poipu Bay Golf Course.

If you’re looking for a resort-style stay, we have you covered. For an additional fee you’ll have uninhibited access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, home to a fitness center, hot tub and sparkling pool with a waterslide and sand-bottomed kiddie section – everything you need to work out, cool off or wind down.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The views from the two lanai were gorgeous and Poipu Sands was very quiet and coint, parking is easy. The condo is at walking distance from many beaches. The kitchen was fully equiped and functionnal. The only minor drawback was some little critters in the kitchen cabinets wich, as I understand, are frequent in tropical setting. But the overall experience was Superb and I'll recommand renting with Amy and her team anytime!!

More Rats : (

  • 1 of 5

We had to move out of this condo do to my 10 year old seeing a rat in the kitchen. The rat was coming out at night and eating anything it could find in the kitchen. We had seen other posts and assumed the rat problem was fixed but it was not. The rental agency (GVR) was very nice in trying to find us another condo but their inventory was small and we ended up finding a property on our own. The condo itself is nice and we liked it (plenty of cookware, good view, great master bedroom) but it seems like this rat issue continues. Also, the wi-fi is marginal at best even with one device on it.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for leaving a review. While we wish it were better, we totally understand. After you left we shut the condo down for a week to see if we could catch the rat and close any holes. We had the pest inspector out as well. We convinced the association to trim the shrubs next to the building because they like to live in them and now they are gone. We had found one hole where they could get in and have closed the hole and have no evidence of them being back since. I think the trimming of the shrubs really helped so that they will not come back as they now do not have anywhere to live. We are very sorry that you had to experience seeing them while you were here and hope that you will come back and give it another try. It really is a beautiful condo and unfortunately, the situation was beyond our control but with your help I think we have solved it.

Our condo was very nice. But they forgot to tell us that it came with RATS. It sure put a damper on our last few days there, as nobody was sleeping. I think that they should have told people not to leave anything on the counters. I had my 85 year old mother with us, and she had to take sleeping pills to go to sleep. It would really make me think about using VRBO again.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are again so very sorry that there was a rodent during your stay. It is not something we knew about prior to your stay and we have since taken care of the problem. We appreciate your letting us go into the property multiple times to check and take care of the situation and hope that the significant refund and gift certificates at least helped in some way. We would love the chance to have you stay with us again so that we can make up for a stay that was less desirable that we would have liked for you.

Beautiful area

  • 3 of 5

To the owner of the condo; you need to get a new cleaning crew, the day we arrived I had to clean everything before I felt comfortable touching anything. The place is pretty dirty as far as the knobs on the cabinets, the kitchen floor was sticky and the kitchen sink and countertops were filthy. Other than that the place was fantastic. I would come again, but if I walked in and felt I needed to clean the place again I wouldn't give it a 3rd chance. The view was breathtaking and the condo was very nice except for the cleanliness of it, it's not your fault just think the people cleaning it don't do what they are paid to do.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. The cleaning staff for this property has changed since your review and we appreciate your letting us know that it wasn't cleaned to our standards. We do wish we would have known during your stay as we would have loved to send someone out to fix it but we understand not wanting to be bothered on vacation. We hope to see you again soon!

Good value with a surprising view

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a meeting at the Hyatt. Very convenient to the meeting. Condo has everything we needed for cooking and entertaining. Great view and nice grounds. Managers were great and offered to relocate us or to have a discount due to construction near by.
