With new designer furnishings, panoramic ocean views, air conditioning, and convenient amenities throughout, you’ll feel completely at home while living the good life on Kauai’s North Shore.

Kick back and enjoy quality vacation time together in a spacious, open living room, where a flatscreen TV with a DVD player makes movie nights a must, and the iPod dock and CD player helps create breezy island vibes to go with the stunning ocean view. Keep a lookout for whales with the telescope provided!

Dig in at the formal dining table for six, alfresco on the lanai, or picnic-style on the lush lawn just steps from the back door.

Modern amenities make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Puu Poa Perks: Bask in the heated pool overlooking the ocean, challenge friends to a tennis game, grill up lunch at the communal barbecues, and enjoy private access down to Hideaway Beach for some of the best summertime snorkeling around.

Room to Relax: With over 2,000-square-feet of breezy living space, a gorgeous open kitchen, and a private bath for each bedroom, it’s easy to come together or retreat for peace and privacy whenever you wish.

With a five-star Princeville Hotel right next door, you’ll be just a three-minute walk from a world-class spa and award-winning restaurants. World-famous Hanalei Bay is just a short 15-minute drive, or soak up Kauai’s dramatic beauty from nearby Makai Golf Club, on a horseback ride along the beach, or a waterfall hike along Kalihiwai Falls.

We only stayed here for 2 nights, but absolutely loved it. Amazing view, great pool, washer/dryer, parking spot, close to Princeville and Hanalei. We would definitely stay here again, mahalo!
JAMES O. Sep 2022
We have stayed in this unit several times over the years. It is well managed, spotless clean and well equipped. Fantastic location and great views. I would highly recommend booking Unit 105.
RACHELLE V. Jul 2022
So wonderful. On the ocean. Relaxing and magical. The unit was clean and spacious. Mgmt was very responsive. It was great to be able to walk right out the back patio to the pool and watch the sunset. Hideaways Beach was steps away albeit a very steep climb. Great for snorkeling. Loved our stay and hope to be back.
CATHY J. Jul 2022
We loved our stay at Puu Poa 105! The condo is roomy and beautifully equipped. The view is heavenly. The hike downhill to Hideaway Beach was very steep, but it was lovely there. We wish we could have stayed another week!
STEPHEN T. Jul 2022
Loved everything about our stay! The condo is beautiful, with a gorgeous kitchen that has everything you could need. The ground floor location is super convenient. Easy to walk out to the pool or to the beautiful views of ocean and sunset.

We really appreciated the air conditioning. It would have been pretty warm without it.

This location was great. We walked to the Queens Bath trailhead and avoided the full parking lot there. We hiked down to Hideaway Beach (you’ll be better off in something besides flip flops). We walked down to Hanelei Beach from Puu Poa on the stairs by the new One Hotel.

We loved coffee and smoothies from The Spot. Also enjoyed day trip to Anini Beaxh and and Kalalau Trail!
ANNE F. Jun 2022
The condo is very spacious and tastefully decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture. It looks like a model home. The view is beautiful for sunsets and we were able to watch Nene geese feed on the grass 5 feet from the back patio. There is a steep trail down to Hideaway Beach right next to the property that is great for snorkeling and swimming. And we appreciated the air conditioning in every room. Overall this is a wonderful place to stay.
SHARON B. Jun 2022
The ground floor location overlooking the ocean is a perfect picturesque spot.
MEG M. May 2022
This property is more beautiful than the pictures. Lovely modern furnishings with great style and comfort. Fabulous kitchen and grill with all the amenities. The view from the back is unbelievable and watching the sun set every night was a highlight of the day. Puupoa and hideaway beaches are right below and we even walked to the queens bath. There was some construction noise from the hotel and multiple units undergoing renovation but not really an issue. Such a special spot

We had a wonderful time staying at Puu Poa 105. Beautiful unit! Decorated with exceptional island taste. Gormet kitchen with top of the line appliances, utencils, etc. Master bath with huge shower area and Japanese soaking tub. Housekeeping had done
an exquisite job. Absolutely perfect down to the tiniest detail!
But the greatest part had to be the location. The view from the lanai was out of this world. We saw whales, dolphins, turtles and beautiful sunsets. We also loved the gentle little Ne Nes.
We will definitely be back again if we're lucky enough!
Cheryl R. Mar 2022
The condo was great, large, clean, and wonderful location overlooking ocean.
Shelley W. Mar 2022
We had the best time in this condo. They had everything you needed for the beach there too. Chairs, towels, boogie boards and a cooler. This place had amazing views and loved sleeping to the sound of the ocean.
David G. Mar 2022
This is a beautiful, spacious, well-outfitted condo. The view is spectacular- we saw whales daily from our porch. Two beaches are within walking distance, although both involve steps. Not a problem for us, but something to be aware of. The second bedroom is a bit small, but certainly comfortable. Our only criticism is that the bathrooms are short on towel racks and hooks to hang up damp towels and swimsuits. Otherwise, it had everything we needed and more: lots of pool/beach chairs and toys, a good amount of towels and laundry needs, etc. We would definitely stay here again.
Jennifer J. Dec 2021
Beautifully decorated huge condo with fabulous views! Well equipped with high-end furniture & appliances and beach toys & chairs too. The weather wasn’t great while we there, but the condo was perfect for relaxing with a book & watching the rain over the ocean. We will definitely come back & want to bring friends next time to enjoy the space with.

Our stay was fantastic. The condo was was fantastic, easy to get too and felt like home. Don`t tell too many folks - I want it to be our little secret hideaway. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This place was amazing! My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and it was the perfect place to relax after all the festivities. The views are epic - you get to see glimpses of the sunrise and sunset all from the lawn area in front of the condo (in early May). We also loved how close it was to Hideaway beach for early morning snorkeling. The place was very clean, had everything we needed, and tastefully decorated. Would highly recommend staying here. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is an amazing place to stay in Princeville. We couldn`t have been happier! The view is perfect. The unit is extremely well appointed, with everything we needed to be comfortable and then some. The unit is also very spacious! And having laundry onsite was very convenient, especially with so many towels and beach wear. We also loved being on the ground floor, so we could just walk outside to the grass, overlook the ocean, and visit the pool. Communication with the host was easy and timely. One thing that was less than ideal, was there was a slightly musty smell in the apartment. With fans on and doors open, we had no real issues. But if someone had a very serious sensitivity to smell, it may be a problem. The other issue was somewhat spotty WiFi. We didn`t have too much of a problem, but there were times when internet slowed down or even cut out entirely. Since we had to do some work while we were there, this was definitely an inconvenience. If anyone had extremely important work that needed to be completed in a timely manner, this might be a challenge. All in all, though, we thought this was an incredible place to stay and an awesomely luxurious gift to ourselves. We`d love to return to this unit the next time we`re in Princeville!

The most beautiful hub for a vacation In one of our favorite places. Perfect location, lovely ambiance, amazing views. We felt totally spoiled. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Word can’t describe this place. Great layout, stunning space, very comfortable with everything you need and the BEST view. Access to Pali Ke Kua and Puu Poa beaches and Fort Alexander was a huge bonus. Really hope we can go back one day! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. Oct 2020
The place was super spacious. It was just my husband and I for this trip but it can easily accommodate two couples with plenty of privacy and space. We loved the way that you can see the ocean from almost every room and the cozy couches all over the living rooms (there are two!). Hideaway Beach is just steps and a short hike but well worth it. We cooked almost every day and were so grateful for the grill. That was awesome. Be careful going to the Hideaway Beach when it’s been raining as the path can get slippery, we took our shoes off and barefoot was easy to grip the mud/dirt to get to the paradise of a little beach. We snorkeled right there too. One day the current was a bit too strong so we couldn’t swim there so we just went to Hanalei Beach which is just 15 minutes away. The condo is a perfect location from everywhere. Queen’s Bath is a walk away and you can overlook it from the 7th hole of the Makai golf course. Beautiful! There is a walking path right off the condo complex and my husband ran on that every day. There was some construction next door but they always started later and were very respectful. All in all my husband and I absolutely loved this place. Fully stocked, towels, boogie board, anything you may need for your stay there the condo had it. I would warn that the light buttons and the AC were a little convoluted. And each of the rooms had a slightly different temperature, but nothing unbearable. Perhaps a different AC system in the far future? Would highly recommend this place and we cannot wait to go back again and stay here. The host was very responsive and we were pleasantly surprised the condo included a car rental. Thank you Gigi and team! You helped us celebrate my birthday and our anniversary on the best part of the island! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We stayed in the complex in 2004! We loved the location and floor plan, so we quickly made the decision to return. The refrigerator was not working, but GVR provided a cooler full of ice, and a discount, which was great thinking. The only things I would change would be a bigger TV, and an upgrade to the sliding doors. We loved being oceanfront, watching the surfers from the lawn.

This was the perfect condo for our vacation on Kauai. Especially enjoyed waking up to the ocean views. We cooked all our dinners in, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The condo itself is much bigger than we anticipated. Definitely could house four people perfectly. The location was just right, as you could walk to many restaurants and the beach or short drive to Hanalei. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an unforgettable trip to Kauai.

Fully furnished with everything needed except food. Enjoyed using the snorkel gear, spotting scope for whales and lovely views. Would definitely stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This property looks impressive online, but it is even better in person. The owners spared no expense in decorating and stocking this unit. Beautiful furniture and decor, and high end appliances and knives, etc. Far beyond your basic VRBO set up, especially with initial set up supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, etc. They even supplied laundry detergent and dryer sheets! I would definitely stay here again - fell in love with this place! Owner`s Response: Mahalo, Shannon!! We`re happy that the condo met your expectations for your trip and that you were well taken care of! Aloha!!

We chose the condo was a very correct choice, the environment is beautiful and quiet, its excellent geographical location, through a trail can be very easy to reach the beach, and it`s also easy to drive to the Hanalei, the Kalalau Trail, the Kilauea Lighthouse, the Queen`s Bath, all of that.A few minutes` drive to the supermarket at the Princeville center. The condo is beautiful, clean and fully equipped, just like living in your own home, without any inconvenience, even many beach sports facilities in the room, it is perfect. In addition, the process of booking the condo went very smoothly, and the landlord explained everything we wanted to know in detail.After we checked out, we left important documents in the condo. The landlord promptly mailed it to oahu, where we later traveled, We are very grateful to her. By the way, the condo also includes free use of a car, which is a great service.If we ever visit kauai again, we will definitely choose to stay here:) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This place was simply amazing. The pictures speak for themselves. It was very spacious and it had an amazing view of the ocean. The pool is also very clean and a few steps away from the condo.

We had a wonderful stay. The condo was actually larger than I expected, even from the photos. It can get a little hot in the evening, but there are plenty of fans given to utilize and increase comfort. The best thing about the stay was the location. One of the best snorkel beaches in all of our travels throughout the islands was just below us (Hideaways, which is actually two beaches). We snorkeled there numerous times and saw countless turtles, eels, and reef fish. For the less adventuresome, there is plenty of shade. The Princeville Resort is very close (walking distance) and easily utilized (e.g. spa). There is also a pool and outdoor shower conveniently located nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

Our condo at Pu`u Po`a was amazing! It was in a great secluded location where we felt far from the crowds, but still close enough to activities and beaches. The condo was so clean, well kept, and huge! So much space to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views. It made our honeymoon even more special. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Wonderful stay at Puu Poa 105! Loved the location. Condo was EXACTLY as pictured so no surprises. We thought not having A/C would be an issue, but being by the water, there is always a nice breeze and the evenings are very comfortable. It is a bit pricey but we did get a discount because of the construction going on nearby so for us it was totally worth it. Would definitely book again if and when we come back!

We absolutely loved our stay at Pu`u Poa with Great Vacation Retreat. The unit was larger and nicer than we expected (even though we had high expectations from the pictures). It was very clean and had everything we needed, including beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie board, snorkel gear etc. The views are amazing and would highly recommend checking out Hideaway beach - the sand and water were amazing!! Great Vacation Retreats communicated frequently and were very easy to get a hold of when needed. We had no issues with the rental car or really anything during the week we were there. Overall, would highly recommend this place - it was perfect for my husband, daughter and myself along with my parents. Lots of room, great location, stunning views and access to Hideaway and the St. Regis beach - both in close walking distance (although a bit of steep hike to Hideaway beach and lots of stairs to St. Regis - but still both worth the effort). Can`t wait to visit again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We spent a week in Kauai for our honeymoon. Can not recommend this place more. The inside is so comfortable, clean, and stylish. So much space and every thing you could need in a home while staying on the island. The car rental was easy and an excellent bonus but even without, this place has been one of the best experiences we have had using AirBnb. Hideaway beach below the condo is worth the trek if you can handle the steep path, we had our own private beach one morning perfect for relaxing and snorkeling (which is provided). A giant sea turtle came to shore as we spent the rest of the time swimming amongst the tropical fish. This will be our first place to look anytime we find ourselves visiting Kauai This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Hands down the BEST place to stay on Kauai. Easy access to secluded beaches (Hideaway and Secret) and to local amenities. Easy drive into Hanalei, and incredible views of every sunrise and sunset.

This condo is a great place to stay in Kauai! It is HUGE - way larger than we expected from pictures. The condo had an amazing ocean view and a whole wall of windows to enjoy it. Lots of comfortable seating areas. The kitchen is large and has all the things you need to cook some meals. The host was easy to communicate with and their is a great binder of recommendations in the unit. Not to mention the free rental car! So great!
