You can easily walk everywhere in the Poipu area. Place had all essentials. Would stay there again.

We came to Kauai for our first trip to Hawaii. My husband, 16, 14, and 12 year old boys and myself stayed for 10 days. The condo was perfect! The location made it easy for us to get around both by walking and car! The beach access was easy and had a lot of choices for seats (beach or grass, chair or blanket). The beach hut had rentals for equipment that we did not have.
Vacasa was also easy to go through for our vacation rental. Thanks for making our stay at Kiahuna Plantation easy and enjoyable for our family!

This location is PRIME! You’re a quick walk to the beach, and just a short drive away from multiple shopping centers. The condo itself is comfy and has a distant view of the ocean. A great deal! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This condo was perfect for our 4 day stay in Poipu. The staff left us a birthday cake and balloons as we were celebrating my wifes birthday and we are so grateful for that. The AC is only in the living room and not in the bedroom but with the fans the bedroom cools up quickly. The street noise was not bad at all, but the roosters will definitely wake you up in the morning as many of the window/shutters dont fully close, other than that, this is a perfect apartment to go to the beach and relax in Kauai.

Wonderful guest experience, exceeded our expectations. Mahalo. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Really convenient location right next to Poipu beach. We were able to walk easily. Unit is great location though close to the road if you are sensitive to road noise. It didn`t bother us at all even with windows open. It`s close to the pool. Quiet complex while we stayed. All together great experience. The complex is a bit older and the unit reflects that. A remodeled kitchen, though the unit has wear and tear of being older build. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Grateful for this condo on our stay in Kauai. It was perfectly set up for literally any adventure. I unfortunately got horrifically sick, and didn’t get the wonderful option of exploring the island. I did however get to fully utilize this amazing condo! The kitchen is super well set up, and as someone that enjoys cooking, it provided more cookware than I expected. The bed and bedroom is super comfortable and since it was winter time when we stayed here, it was actually really cool and easy to adjust the temperature.

This place has everything. We had an amazing stay and woke up to a gorgeous sunrise on the lanai every morning! Definitely wish we could’ve stayed longer. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great time, everything in the place made us feel welcome, they were very kind in leaving snacks, we really appreciate it. We forgot something but did their best to get it back. The condo is at second floor and has stairs inside too, we had no problem with that but it’s important. Great place!

I’ve stayed at a lot of Airbnb’s and I loved this one. The location was truly a 10/10. It was less than 100 yards I’d say from the water and the beach had sea turtles on it every day we went down. The view was lovely and honestly the decor was quite pretty. There was everything you could need in the place: Tupperware, beach chairs, spices and sauces, pans, lots of towels, a speaker. Really it’s endless. I’ve never been so happy with a place I’ve stayed. They’ve also added ac to the upstairs bedroom but we didn’t use it this stay.

GVR has it all put together. Amazing deal to get a rental car along with a clean place and great amenities. Great location! Close to beach, hiking, and shopping. Thank you GVR!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great overall... Great Location! Thoughtful touches! Great Communication! We had wonderful stay at Kahala. The location, space, and amenities were great and really made this unit very special. We enjoyed the birds that came to greet us every morning and the view of the ocean from the lanai. We were never in need of any linens, towels, pillows, etc. It was very obvious that GVR thinks of everything that makes for a great vacation! BEST PARTS: --The VIEWS were great, straight shot to the ocean, which the pool right below our lanai. --Checking-in to the unit was FLAWLESS, and we were able to do it on our own. --Communication between GVR`s team was very QUICK, and they always followed up to every inquiry. --GVR provides a Welcome Package when you arrive.. it was so sweet and thoughtful. They also provided a digital and printed Welcome Booklet which was super helpful to have before and during our stay. I give GVR`s team 5 stars on this alone because we`ve never experienced this level of detail with any other stay. --They really think of EVERYTHING. This unit was complete with everything you need while you`re away from home. We were pleasantly surprised with how homely this unit was without feeling like you`re staying in someone`s actual home. --Although there were many options to choose from, one of the main reasons we chose this rental was because of the FREE RENTAL CAR... I mean, we thought it might be too good to be true.. but honestly, it came with a free rental car! GVR arranged the whole setup and all we had to do was provide our driver`s information to the car rental company and we picked it up once we arrived to the island. Fantastic and saved us some money as well. PLEASE NOTE: --There are 3 flights of stairs to this unit. One to get up to the front door, then two more short flights to get up to the first floor of the unit. (We didn`t know this and were a bit surprised) There`s also another narrow flight of stairs to get up to the bedroom with the twin beds.. So just be aware if you`re bringing lots of luggage or if stairs are troublesome for you. --This unit only has room A/C`s for the bedrooms. All other spaces are only cooled by fans, and they provide PLENTY of fans. But it still gets a bit warm during the hottest parts of the day and the humidity can sometimes get rough. Once again, everything else about our stay was 100% lovely and much appreciated. I do hope to rent from the GVR team again on our next trip to Kauai. Staying at Kahala helped to make our vacation great :) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Très bon séjour dans ce condo très très bien équipé et très bien situé tout près de la plage ! Il y avait tout ce dont nous avions besoin pour cuisiner aller à la plage et tout le reste. Le seul bémol pour nous est qu il manque la climatisation car à l étage il fait vraiment très chaud même avec les ventilateurs alors qu en bas la chaleur est supportable et nous n avons pas eu de problème pour dormir mais en haut c était plus compliqué pour mon fils. Le contact avec l agence était parfait et très réactif. Merci encore. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I would stay with Great Vacations again. They were excellent at communicating and the airBnb had everything we could need. I’d just recommend individual liquid creamers on-hand with the coffee. The unit itself was very clean with the bathroom being a little outdated and cramped. The age shows. The pools were great and there is a beach that is super easy to get to in 5 minutes of walking.

There is a reason why they are a Super Hist. Great location better service created amazing memories. Our first time using Air b&b and could not be more satisfied. Cheers, This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had an awesome time here. The walk to the beach is super reasonable and the whole surrounding area is cute with lots to do. The only negative was the lack of air conditioning, but we did know about that going into the trip, so we dealt with it by spending most of our time outside! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. Jun 2019
The townhouse was nice and well decorated, plenty of space for myself and my husband. The bed was very comfy. FYI, if you are used to AC and there aren`t any tradewinds or rain you will be hot in the room since this one does not have AC, as many places on the island do not. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful time! The space was clean, fully stocked with everything we needed and very cozy. We were a quick walk to the beach and close to restaurants and shopping. The hosts were very responsive to our needs and quickly replied to any inquiries. I look forward to visiting again!

We loved unit #132 Kahala in Poipu. The condo is situated very close to several beaches where you can take a swim, play in the waves or just enjoy the beach. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes and takes you right past a little store where you can grab sandwiches and refreshing drinks. Don’t forget to take the umbrella, chairs, towels and beach items provided by the hosts! The unit itself was much more spacious than we were expecting and had enough room for the two young adults and myself. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook and prepare all meals and the lanai was perfect to enjoy those meals while taking in the view. The unit doesn’t have air conditioning, but the fans were plentiful and the master bedroom, and main living area stayed cool. Restaurants, coffee houses (Fish Coffee and Starbucks) and shops are just a short walk away down Poipu Road and local attractions and areas of interest are near. Great Vacation Retreats were very attentive and quick to respond to any questions or needs. We will definitely stay again.

This place was breathtaking! Just what I was hoping for and it delivered. A view of the ocean that was breathtaking every morning as I enjoyed my breakfast. I could walk right to the beach and all the beach supplies were provided. I plan to stay here again and because of this beautiful place this made my trip for my family exactly what we were looking for. The small touches and prompt staff were wonderful to work with from the beginning. Robyn H. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great amenities (e.g. large shampoo/conditioner/soap bottles, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler) Short walk to Poipu beach Condo was warm during our stay (May) without AC. The bedroom does cool off overnight. We spent the daylight hours away from the condo to avoid the heat. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Incredible location! We were able to walk to many places from this condo. The condo was sparkling clean, and although a bit warm at times they provided a ton of fans to keep air moving. The master never got very warm but the loft (which we didn’t use) did get quite warm. Our rental came with a free rental car as well as a bowl of farm fresh eggs raised by a local youngster. It was such a sweet touch. Definitely recommend this condo, especially if it’s only for two people staying on the main level. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. May 2019
This was such a cute space and reflects the pictures well. The hosts were so thoughtful and put special touches like cage free, local eggs raised by an 8 year old girl (come on, how sweet is that?!) and local snacks and sodas. They also left us a “Happy Anniversary” balloon ❤️🎈! It was a great location to explore the island - which we did a lot of and surf at nearby beaches. There was a fruit stand close by and the condo had a cooler and tup-a-ware so we took our fresh fruit with us as we adventured around. There was some construction while we were there so the pool wasn’t available but because we didn’t travel with our kids this time, we didn’t miss it. We had a lovely time and hope to be back soon. Thank you guys again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The space and location are perfect! Poipu beach is a five minute walk and a great restaurant bar scene is within easy walking distance. The pool and hot tub are super convenient and just around back from the front steps. Street noise was not an issue at all as the road definitely dies after the sun sets. Poipu beach is one of the few in Hawaii where the turtles come out to sleep at night - we toasted at least 6 of them nightly (they come out at sunset... give them 10 ft though and please don’t shine lights/flash-photos at them - they’re sleeping). There wasn’t anything negative to mention in regards to what we were looking for. The price was great and the space was perfect for two. The two bathroom sinks are separate from the one toilet and shower so a group of 4 could get along fine. The tub takes 2 full charges of the hot water heater to fill, but the hot water heater reheats in less than 10minutes... and the hot tub is honestly 40 steps from the front door. We loved our stay!!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were impressed with all aspects of our experience with Great Vacation Retreats! The process to get the rental car that was included was smooth and pain-free. The GVR office was also very gracious and responsive to our questions! The Airbnb was spacious and would have been perfect for a family of 4. With the windows open, you can hear the cars drive by in the morning and the noises from the pool but it was not too disruptive. The location is within a 5 min walk to both Brennecke and Poipu Beaches. If you get the Poipu Athletic Club membership, it is not located on site but is about 1/2 mile away! My wife and I enjoyed the use of the Athletic Club to play tennis, ping pong, and work out. Again it would be a great options for families!

We had a great and relaxing time in Kauai and loved the house and convenient location. Kahala 132 had everything we needed and we loved coming “home” after a day`s adventures. It`s a very good size, the kitchen was great and there were even some fins, snorkels and body boards! Everything was very clean, and we appreciated the plentiful towels. The upstairs got a little warm for comfortable sleeping, even in late October. Also, be aware that there is definitely some road noise that you can hear from the master bedroom. The ocean view from the balcony was awesome for breakfast, and we had a bunch of birds and geckos visiting. You can walk to the kid friendly beach in less than 10 minutes. Communication with the hosts was easy and quick. It was very convenient that a rental car was included. We`d love to come back, and we miss Kauai already! Mahalo!!!

We had such a blast renting from Great Vacation Retreats! The communication was perfect. They`re so responsive and thoughtful. There left us local snacks on the table the day we arrived :) The place is very clean (also much bigger than expected) and provided everything you might need to make you feel at home. Even the service for the car rental was perfect. I called them on short time notice to make rearrangements to the car and that was no issue, withint 15 minutes everything was fixed. To be honest, we were pretty bumped to leave. Can`t wait to stay here again in the future. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great location, nice unit, convenient to Poipu beach and southern points. A bit hot for me in the summer w/o AC. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. Jun 2018
The pros: All the amenities one could want in the kitchen and around the house. Attractive decor, good beds, very responsive team to help with everything, clear instructions etc. They let us check out at 11 instead of 10 too which we appreciated. The cons: a good 10 minutes to walk to Poipu beach past lots of tennis courts that are not available for use even though you look right at them from the deck. Also, the upstairs loft was very hot and it didn`t really cool down until late evening. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Kahala 132 was a perfect size and layout for our family of 2 adults and 2 teens. Beds were comfortable, and the closet in the main bedroom had plenty of space to unpack and settle in. The kitchen was well stocked, and we especially appreciated the storage containers, ziplock bags, aluminum foil, and extra paper towels. The bathroom had plenty of soap, shampoo, and conditioner. All of this was very helpful since we carried on our luggage and couldn`t bring ours. On hot days it was a little warm inside, but there were plenty of extra fans to help keep cool. I rent my basement as an Airbnb, clean it myself, and as a result am very aware of cleanliness. The housekeepers did a great job here. Everything was clean and sanitary. The location was great. There is a small view of the ocean from the deck, which also overlooks the pool. It`s an easy walk to Poipu Beach where we saw turtles and monk seals almost daily. Poipu Beach was a little crowded, but is a perfect place if you have small kids who want to play in calm water. There is also decent snorkeling there. If you continue walking past Poipu Beach along the sand, past the next large hotel and one smaller one, then over some rocks, you come to an amazing beach for snorkeling. One thing to be aware of is noise. If you have light sleepers, you might want to bring a sound machine. With no air conditioning you need windows open at night. There is a bit of road noise, and the island roosters often start crowing before dawn. None of this bothered me, but my husband is a light sleeper and he noticed it. Another thing to be aware of is stairs. The home is essentially the 3rd and 4th floors of the building. You go up a flight to get to the front door, then another to get from the entry to the living level. Loft sleepers get to climb an additional flight as well. We ate so much that the additional exercise was welcomed, but it`s something to be aware of if anyone in your group has limited mobility. The included car rental was great. We also opted for the Poipu Beach Athletic Club just down the road and enjoyed that. The Big Save in Koloa is a short drive and a good place for groceries. Overall we were very pleased with Kahala 132. Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We just returned from our best vacation! We had such a great stay and Great Vacation Retreats made it very easy and enjoyable. Our condo was very clean, well equipped, had a great view of the ocean, pool and tennis courts (all of which we used) and was walking distance to Poipu Beach. The inclusion of a car rental was very convenient. Thank you so much! Hope to visit Kauai again soon. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
