About Great Vacation Retreats

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 Great Vacation Retreats chose Poipu

Spectacular Views: The home's spacious lanai seats 4 and has an incredible view of the ocean all year. From September to March, it is also the perfect place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

Whale Watching: From November to March, whale season in Hawaii, you can often spot migrating whales right from the lanai. For a closer view, you can try sea kayaking or a sail excursion, too!

Built for Beach Bums: Makahuena is a 15-minute walk to Shipwreck's beach, the perfect place to watch the sunrise. In the evening, head to Poipu Beach, just a ten-minute walk from the house, to admire the sunset.

What makes this condo unique

Wake up early and watch the sunrise at Shipwreck’s Beach, then make your way to Grand Hyatt Kauai – each is just a 15-minute walk away – to choose your own adventure. The Grand Hyatt offers wonderful shopping and an authentic luau on Thursdays and Sundays.

Whether it’s teeing off on an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, hiking or zip lining through Kauai’s lush landscape or getting up close and personal with sea creatures during an afternoon of scuba diving, you’ll have no problem finding an experience that’s worth writing home about. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, walk 10 minutes to Brennecke’s Beach Broiler for pupu platters, ahi tuna burgers and more with a vista view.

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.

Great View and Location Oct 2016

  • 4 of 5

This Condo is in a great location close to Poipu Beach, Hyatt and Marriott. We were 4 adults and 2 children who absolutely loved the Dolphin themed twin bedroom. The Condo is very roomy, except for the dinning area. The table has only 4 chairs and we had to use beach chairs in order for all of us to eat our meals together. The master bedroom is huge but gets very warm as it is upstairs. The views from the balcony are great and provided great sunset views. The furniture on the balcony very comfortable. But because the sun comes into the balcony area and living room in the late afternoon until sundown the condo gets very hot, We had to use all the fans all the time in order to keep it comfortable. Each of the bedrooms has a ceiling fan and an additional fan. There is no AC. The kitchen was great two people could be in there working and had plenty of room. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed including spices! All the furniture and the beds were very comfortable. There were beach chairs, umbrella's and a cooler in the closet for our use. The only thing we had to buy was sand toys for the kids and we left them there for other people to use. The location was great we could either walk or short drive to restaurants and activities. The Beach House is a great location with beautiful sunset set views, pricey but worth it. We also had a graet lunch at the Kalypso Bar & Grill people very nice there and there are many restaurants at the round about in town. All in all we had a great vacation, I gave it 4 stars only because of the fact that it got so hot in the late afternoon and could not stay in the living/dinning room area because it was so hot most of the days we were there. That was the main issue for us. One other thing I want to mentioned is that if you have small children the pool does not have a shallow area so it is difficult, but the beach is so close and wonderful for small children. Ours had a great time there.

Large remodled condo, great ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous ocean views, spacious accommodations and a completely outfitted kitchen make this a great Poipu Beach condo. Spectacular sunsets were a highlight of our visit. We were impressed by the new high quality beds and new appliances. We were the first guests and the box springs for the beds in the third bedroom had not arrived yet. A great vacation, well located an ideal condo.
