The quintessential home for a large group who wish to gather together or have some alone time. This home is where memories are created and we have the reviews to support it! Besides the four bedrooms and three baths, there are so many places to gather in a group, large or small, or have a little rest and relaxation with a book and a glass of wine. The ground floor has a games room in one of the single garages, a couch, tv, dvd player, foosball and air hockey -- the perfect hideaway for the teens and young adults. Up half a flight is a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and bath. A place for the kids and the kids at heart to make popcorn and watch a movie or sit and play a game or do a puzzle at the table. Outside is the backyard, another gathering place, with loungers and umbrella table and a small grass area, perfect play area for the toddler and young children.

Half a floor up is the living area with another living room with flat screen tv, dining area that seats 12, kitchen with plenty of room for the chef and the sous chef, bedroom, and outside lanai a table and BBQ with stunning mountain views. Top floor gives maximum privacy for the master bedroom with en suite and another bedroom and bath.

When you stay at Daydream Believer you are minutes away from the Poipu Kai Greenbelt, a sidewalk that has large grassy areas on both sides. Five minutes to the right you are at Shipwreck's Beach and the stunning Grand Hyatt Kauai with many restaurants and world-class grounds. This is the perfect place to watch the sun rise out of the Pacific Ocean. To the left, five minutes down the path, you come to the Poipu Kai tennis courts, pool and hot tub and five minutes beyond that is Brennecke's and world famous Poipu beaches. Brennecke's restaurant is right there as well; a beautiful place to sit and sip a cocktail and watch the sunset.

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 :)

Why Great Vacation Retreats chose South Shore

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thank your employees for their courtesy in handling our request, as we were only looking for a 2-day rental. Other places we called were very brusque (verging on rude) about our not meeting their minimum rental period.

The unit was very nice. We did leave a comment sheet about 3 needed maintenance items.

We had enjoyed staying in this house. It's well equipped. Close to the Grand Hyatt and beach is an added benefit. It would be even nicer if AC can be added.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments about the house. The house is large enough and roomy enough to handle a large group -- with plenty of space for each individual person. AC is a luxury on Kauai and not very many properties can offer it. We wish all of our owners could put AC in their properties but that just isn't possible. I hope you are able to come back to Kauai again someday. Amy

Great house for big group

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked Daydream Believer through Great Vacation Rentals for our annual family trip. It was a good choice for our group of 12 ( 4 families: 7 adults and 5 kids). The bedrooms were good sized with nice comfortable beds and the kids had plenty of pull-out bed options.

The floorplan is a little different than other homes we have rented but it was spacious and gave everyone plenty of room to spread out for privacy yet come together for meals and movie nights. The kitchen was nice and large and very well stocked with kitchen essentials. We did a lot of cooking at home so the second refrigerator was very convenient. It was great to have beach towels and laundry appliances handy - we used them daily and they worked well.

Overall the pictures and description of the house are very accurate. The house is clean and well stocked, beds are very comfortable, the neighborhood is conveniently located with easy access from Lihue and is nice and quiet, the walking path provides easy and quick access to The Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach to the east and Poipu Beaches and Brennecke's to the west. Groceries and shopping are an easy 5 minute drive away in Koloa. It's a great location to launch adventures in any direction. Air conditioning would have been nice but it really wasn't needed. Overhead fans did a good job of cooling the house, especially at night and in the bedrooms.

Great Vacation Rentals also has a program for renting beach equipment (snorkel sets, umbrellas, chairs, coolers etc) as well as a weekly membership to the Poipu Athletic Club. We took advantage of both and they were well worth it.

The GVR staff was helpful and very pleasant to work with and I would recommend this house for large groups

Daydream Believer

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made our reservations through TBD Rentals. We were a party of 10 adults and one baby and the home had all the essentials to make our 9 day stay comfortable, relaxing and convenient.

Everything was provided; towels, beach towels, cups, glasses, pots, pans, cutlery, toilet paper, paper towels, irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, dishwasher, laundry and dryer, extra sheets and pillow cases etc. The gas tank for the BBQ was not full, so we had called the rental company and they had provided a new tank within an hour. The property was cleaned and well maintained.

The location is within the Poipu Kai Resort and just a 5 minute walk to Poipu Beach.Groceries and restaurants are just a 5-10 minute drive.

Great vacation rental for a big family vacation. Mahalo!

Spectacular house!

  • 5 of 5

They call this house “Daydream Believer” and believe it – this is a dream! First and foremost, as the saying goes, “location location location.” This home is located right off the greenbelt, slightly closer to Shipwreck Beach than Poipu, but both are just minutes away on foot. It's on a street where most of the other people are residents as opposed to vacation renters, and the ones we met were very friendly. We were a family of 7 – our two girls and their friend stayed in the lower suite, which has a large living room and bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, fridge and washer/dryer, as well as a nice backyard area. They were very comfortable down there and could stay up as late as they wanted without disturbing the rest of the group. The middle floor contains the living/dining/kitchen area, along with a beautiful outdoor eating area balcony with a grill, which we put to good use. It's a beautiful view and so lovely to sit out and have your meal any time of day, with a lot of friendly little birds coming by expecting to be fed. The kitchen has been newly remodeled and is a real pleasure to use. There's also a bedroom on the middle floor with two twin beds, which is where our son lived. On the top floor are two large bedrooms, including the master. There are two bathrooms on this floor, and it is nice and quiet up there. In the past we've had air conditioning when we've been in Poipu, and wondered whether we would miss it. Not at all, was our experience. The house is full of fans and up high enough that there are cross breezes all the time. This house is beautifully landscaped and there is an absolutely spectacular view of the mountains which you see from the living room/kitchen area. We liked the house so much we extended our stay almost a full week. We will definitely be back!
