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

1. Prince Kuhio’s Surf Break: Grab a blanket and get ready for a show right in your backyard! Prince Kuhio’s surf break, between Prince Kuhio and Lawai beaches, is a popular spot for surfers to show off their skills in the crashing waves.

2. Watch Sea Turtles from the Lanai: There’s nothing better than watching sea turtles playfully navigate the waves in the Pacific, except maybe watching with a cold drink from the comfort of your private lanai. During the winter months, you might even catch glimpses of whales and dolphins swimming in the blue waters.

3. Central Location: In one direction, you’ll find the popular Beach House Restaurant. In the other, the Spouting Horn blow hole delights visitors. If you’re looking for shopping options, the Kukui’ula Shopping Village has numerous shops, galleries and a gourmet farmers market.

What makes this condo unique

Just 30 minutes from the airport, this condo puts you near Kukui’ula Shopping Center’s upscale grocery store, restaurants, shops, galleries, and a weekly farmers market (11-minute walk). Drive to the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and Spouting Horn Park (4 minutes) for hiking through native plants and to a stunning waterspout.

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.

So peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Kauai and we could not have asked for a better location. The place was the perfect size for the two of us and had everything we needed, including beach gear, towels, and a cooler. It was close to nice beaches....Shipwreck was my favorite. It was also a close drive or walk to some great restaurants. The patio was my favorite spot.....hearing the waves crashing and watching all the sea turtles every afternoon. It ended up raining the last three days were were there but it was still nice to sip cocktails on the patio and hear and see the water!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We appreciate it. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Kuhio Shores is an excellent spot on the south shore. We love to walk over and watch the keiki surfing at PKS or just sitting on the lanai sipping cocktails sounds amazing. Hope to see you again soon!

We had a great stay here! The condo is very clean and well-appointed, and the staff that manages the property were all very helpful and kind. The views and the sounds of the ocean helped make our stay even better. We would definitely stay here again!

Room with a view!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated one bedroom condo right on the pacific! This condo was clean, well stocked, comfy, and offered a great view of a small cove on the south side of the island. We watched sea turtles and fish and listened to the waves crash everyday from our balcony. We snorkeled in the cove too and got to swim with the giant sea turtles 😍. The condo king sized bed was comfy and we had everything we needed for our stay. Bath and beach towels, beach chairs, even coolers if we wanted to pack snacks for a picnic. We left the windows open and ceiling fans going all week and never needed the AC. We loved the little extra touches like the papaya and plantains and lemon cookies on the counter when we arrived. The fridge had a bottle of POG juice, 4 bottles of Hawaiian beer, a fresh dish of poke to try and a beautiful fresh lei to welcome us to the island. The condo is located between two sight seeing opportunities (shipwreck beach and spouting horn). And it is less than half a mile from an outdoor plaza with great shopping and dining. We definitely loved our stay and recommend this rental to anyone!

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kuhio Shores #208 for 4 nights and had an excellent stay, perfect for 2 of us. The photos represent the property well. The view from the lanai is beautiful and you can watch turtles surfing the waves below. Go around the building to view the beautiful sunsets. The booking process was easy and all communication (emails, texts, phone calls) with the property management company before and during our trip was helpful and efficient. The property location was great --- easy to get to/from the airport and good for a home base to tour the rest of the island. Loved being right on the water (listening to the waves lull you to sleep!), with a short walk away to Lawai Beach (beside the Beach House Restaurant) which had the best snorkeling of the beaches we visited ~ felt like we were in an aquarium! Appreciated the use of beach chairs, cooler and other beach gear in the unit as well as the laundry facilities in the building. The kitchen was well-equipped and the 'start up' supplies for kitchen, bathroom and laundry mean you don't have to bring your own for a short stay. The weather was in the 80's (F) and we did not have a problem with the unit being too hot --- it was comfortable with the windows open for the ocean breeze and we used the fans supplied only as needed. A must-see for scenery is a drive to Waimea Canyon and the lookouts at the end of the road. We also went on an afternoon boat cruise to see the Na Pali coast with Holo Holo Charters --- stunning! Highly recommend staying here to relax and soak in the Aloha spirit!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your review. The association at Kuhio Shores is currently deliberating on whether or not owners can install air conditioning and what kind. Hopefully soon! Unfortunately, most properties on Kauai don't have AC. Usually the tradewinds cool those properties down very well, however, not while you were staying at the property as it was warm with no wind. We do offer guests complimentary fans and the property is equipped with multiple fans. We are sorry that it wasn't enough to cool you down and hope you can enjoy the property at another time.
