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. A Private Oasis: Beat the crowds and the heat with your own private outdoor pool set in a fenced in yard with gorgeous tropical landscaping and peeks of mountain views. 2. Great for the Group: With room in the main house to sleep 12, a private guesthouse studio for two, and plenty of communal space for spreading out or coming together, Lei Ohana is perfect for multi-family gatherings or group travel. 3. Proximity to Fun: Snorkeling, whale watching, beachside sunsets, and lanai dining at Brenneke’s or Poipu Beach are just a few of many attractions within a 10-15 minute walk from this home-away-from-home.
What makes this House unique
Located in Poipu at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood, you and your ohana will enjoy total peace and privacy while being within close reach of Poipu’s many recreational activities. From whale watching at Makahuena Point and paddle boarding on award-winning Poipu Beach, to playing a round of 18 at Kiahuna Golf Course and taking in Hawaii’s extraordinary beauty by zipline, kayak, or even a helicopter tour, there’s truly something for everyone on Kauai’s sunny south shore. 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.
One of the Best!
All 11 of us in our family loved this spacious house with a marvelous pool. (Lots of pool toys, a well stocked kitchen, 2 refrigerators and a washer and dryer, and even farm fresh eggs and a bottle of champagne to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. All this contributing to make this one of our best vacations ever!
The WiFi was sketchy , but all in all it was one of the best weeks we’ve had!
Overall fantastic......aging a bit in some areas.
Plenty of space for a family of 12, very clean. Would have liked the refrigerator to provide ice and water. Also cleaning supplies for kitchen counter etc would have helped. Appreciated supplies that were provided.
Great Get Away in Poipu
We had a group of twelve between the main house and the apartment. The house is perfectly suited for a large group vacation. We cooked most evenings and enjoyed and kitchen/great-room gathering space. We stayed over the winter holiday and our only regret was the pool was cold although our youngest braved it! Beautiful back yard for family pictures.
Mahalo for choosing Great Vacation Retreats! We're sorry that the pool was not quite what you expected, but it seems it did not stop you from having a great time! Until next time, take care, Aloha!
Couldn’t have been better
Wonderfully accommodating and hospitable managers. Beautiful house!
Mahalo, David, for the review!
Might be the best family vacation we’ve ever had!
The house and grounds were exactly as the photos showed if not better. The indoor outdoor living was wonderful and the pool was large and pristine. The furniture was lovely and just right for a tropical vacation. We were 3 generations and everyone was happy. My daughter and her husband stayed in the cottage which they really enjoyed. There were a couple of small hitches but nothing that interfered with our vacation.
Mahalo, Kathleen, for the review!
The sliding door screen kept falling off, and also the master bathroom window screen. Part of the yard was not fenced, we had a 2 year old that kept going near this area that was not fenced, we had to put a lounge chair in that spot.
One evening the hot water in the connecting bathtub would not turn off. I left a message and sent a text and did not receive a response until the following morning. The maintenance person came out and could not fix the water problem and had to turn off the water. We had to wash our face and brush our teeth with bottled water. The plumber finally came out and had to get a part. This water issue was not fixed for over 16 hours.
Aloha and thank you for leaving a review. I have checked with everyone at the office to see what happened during your stay and they let me know that there was a leak with the hot water after hours, when we came in the morning we had to hire a plumber to fix the leak as it was beyond normal maintenance and then it took a few hours for the plumber to arrive. They said you were without hot water for the morning. We are very sorry you had to experience the plumbing leak during your stay and are sorry it soured your vacation. We hope that you come back so that we can make it up to you!
Hopefully, you enjoyed the home, pool and our beautiful island.
