Experience the quintessential Hawaiian vacation your ohana - family - has been dreaming of....tropical setting, soft sand, crashing waves and ocean breezes. Poipu Shores 102A has all this and more!

Mix up your favorite drink and head out to the private lanai to watch the burning sun slowly set into the Pacific Ocean. During the day, watch the sea turtles playing in the waves. In the winter months, humpback whales make their way through the area.

Settle into the living room, which has new carpeting and paint and is decorated with tasteful tropical touches. The open and airy space has a comfy couch and love seat where guests can sit and watch the flat-screen TV. A new 4-person dining table is the perfect spot for sitting down to meals or gathering for board game night.

Simple and practical, the fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need for simple snacks or elaborate meals. Start your day with a cup of Kauai Coffee Company coffee, stocked in the kitchen for guests.

Fall asleep to the gentle rhythm of the waves in the master bedroom’s king bed. Along with plenty of storage, the master has an en-suite bath with walk-in shower and vanity with extra counter space. In the 2nd bedroom, guests are treated to fun pops of color and two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed depending on your needs. The guest bath comes with a large vanity and tub and shower combination.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

About Owner/Manager


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 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

Why We Love This Home

1. Easy Access: From the private lanai, you're only a few steps to the shared heated pool situated right on the water’s edge. The ground floor unit also has a large grassy area right off the lanai where kids can play or the adults can lay out with good book.

2. Walk to Popular Beaches: Less than 5 minutes away, Poipu and Brenneckes Beaches are some of the best on the island. Poipu has a smaller beach area that’s ideal for kids with calmer waters, while Brenneckes is perfect for bodyboarding.

3. Romantic Master Suite: Large picture windows overlook the water so you can enjoy the view from the new California king bed. Luxurious window coverings provide privacy and keep the room cool during the day.

What makes this condo unique

Grab the towels, umbrellas and beach chairs and take a short 5-minute walk to Brennecke Beach, a hot spot for turtle watching and bodyboarding. A large grassy area with picnic tables and covered pavilions connects Brennecke to popular Poipu Beach. Along with snorkeling, swimming and surfing, Poipu Beach also has a small baby beach protected from the waves that's perfect for kids.

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 place was great, but it could do with some updating in the kitchen (newer appliances and countertops). I was aware of these issues when booking, so not a surprise. We chose based on the location and the view.

The only real problem was the sliding door. It constantly fell off the track.

Ideal oceanfront Hawaii experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a good unit in a good building in a perfect location. The managers of the property are great and made everything about the transaction and arrival / stay / departure experience easy and fun. The furniture is comfortable, the linens are nice, and there are plenty of towels and gear to make a day at the beach easy and comfortable. The kitchen is quipped with what you need to save some money by not eating out. In-unit laundry makes packing light a breeze. The fit and finish of the unit aren't brand new, but everything is clean and sitting on the patio just a few steps from the surf means you won't notice any slight imperfections.

We have stayed in this area of Kauai a couple of times and think it's tough to beat. For luxury and high-end experiences, you're a short walk from Grand Hyatt and a short drive from the couple of nice shopping centers. For the beach, it's a short walk to Poipu Beach Park where snorkeling is easy for everyone in the family and turtles and seals regularly pull themselves out to sun. Easy drives to great (affordable) local dining in Koloa and Hanapepe, as well as all the great beaches along the south and west shores, and fast access to the staple shopping and airport in Lihue.

We've stayed in this ground-level unit and a 3rd-floor unit in another complex. There's a difference in those experiences. On the ground floor, you enjoy immediate access and amazing proximity to the ocean, but you also get neighbors walking by your patio and windows plus some ocean spray that keeps the entire experience a little damp. On the upper floors, you enjoy an unbeatable view and more privacy, but you also have to work a little harder to enjoy the ocean. If you think you'd prefer the ground-level experience, this unit exemplifies everything that everyone loves about the paradise of Hawaii.

Great location, right on the ocean, close to Poipu Beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location right on the ocean cliff, close to Poipu Beach, with a wonderful swimming pool located right above the waves. But we found the condo a bit worn for wear, with couches too soft to sit on, a dryer nonfunctional, a screen door that kept coming off its track, and queen bed a bit soft for our taste. Other than that, we enjoyed our week.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We are sending our maintenance team to look at the dryer, screens and bed and appreciate your letting us know. We are also checking the King bed in the master for comfort. Hard to do because everyone has a different preference but it if needs replacing we will most definitely suggest it to the owners. Hope to see you again soon!
