Beautifully-redone, both bathrooms have high-end touches like imported Carrera marble counters, tile showers and luxurious bath products. The condo comes with other helpful amenities like stackable washer and dryer, linens and beach towels, paper products and cleaning supplies.

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

1. Just Steps from the Ocean: The condo sits right on the ocean, so close you can taste and smell the salt water and sand. During the day, sit on the private lanai and watch sea turtles and dolphins splash in the blue waters as the warm breezes blow across your face. In the winter months, observe humpback whales migrate through the area.

2. Convenient Access to Pool: Located on the ground floor, the condo’s private lanai is the closest to the pool entrance. Wake up each morning and claim your spot around the heated pool that sits right on the water.

3. Instagram-Worthy Sunsets: Each night, gather in the grassy area next to the pool with your fellow travelers to experience some of the most incredible sunsets. Enjoy amazing views and make new friends in the process!

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

Stayed: October 2012 Submitted: October 30, 2012

Couldn't have found a nicer location or property ... beautiful views and wonderfully kept (clean, maintained, up-to-date). Walk out the door to see the ocean, flora and wildlife ... enjoy views from the pool. Close to restaurants, stores and shops and yet in a quiet neighborhood with private beaches. Fantastic exploring in every direction from the coast to the mountains to the botanical gardens. Owners knowledge of the island and it's many attractions was very helpful in planning a great stay. Best activities: sailing, hiking, fresh seafood, R&R. (5 Stars)

A nice place

  • 3 of 5

This location came with a car rental included which was fabulous. We enjoyed the beautiful view and loved the constant sound of the ocean. It was a nice place but could use a little more attention to cleaning in between rentals families. I found men’s underwear in one of the drawers as I was putting our things away. 😱?

A little too close to the pool for me as people kept walking in the yard space (and our view) to get to the pool. Parking needs to be improved. We could never get a place where we were directed to park. Overall it was a nice stay. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for leaving a review! Underwear, yikes! We will definitely be letting the housekeepers know and appreciate your letting us know. We do have inspectors walk through the property prior to check in but they definitely missed a drawer. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon!

This place is magical. The ocean at your feet. Watching the sea turtles from the pool was “Mesmerizing” so fun! Condo has everything you could need. Do yourself a favor and stay here, it’s a home run!

Amazing place, but the master mattress could use an upgrade

  • 4 of 5

Poipu Shores is an amazing location! It's within walking distance to Poipu Beach, shops, and restaurants. There is a family of turtles that are feeding on coral right outside the pool area.

The condo itself is well equipped with everything you need for the week. We cooked 4 out of the 7 days. The kitchen was fully stocked. Beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrella, and beach towels, were all provided.

The only reason I didn't give this a 5-star rating was because of the master bedroom mattress. It was really bad. I think I read about it in another review & thought that everyone has an opinion, but it's true, it's horrible. The bed frame also squeaks every time you change positions in your sleep causing you to wake up. I would strongly suggest having the owners upgrade the mattress and bed frame for future guests.

As for being right next to the pool, I really liked it. It was a little odd at times when other guests of the complex would walk by and look inside our unit, but overall it was super convenient being able to just walk down a few steps to the pool. The pool was so seldom used, that it was almost like having our own private pool.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. We are actually replacing the mattress this week. Thanks to your review and another we have received. We really appreciate reviews for this reason as we don't get to 'test' the beds very often;) Hope to see you again soon!

Great Rental in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation. We booked this Condo for a special get away with life long friends. The unit was perfect. There are fabulous views from the living room, master and the patio. The unit is an end unit which allows for more privacy. The view is ocean front, white water views. Looking over the pool or straight out to the paddle boarders and rowers out in the ocean is extremely relaxing. The sound of the ocean all day and night is wonderful. The unit is located close to restaurants and walking distance to two amazing beaches. One that is for boogie boarding and the other is a more sheltered beach for easy ocean access. The views and location of this unit are top notch. There is so much to see in the area. Had a wonderful time and can't wait to come again... Theresa
