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. Guesthouse Serenity: This ocean-view escape next to the main house is a special treat. Roll out of bed, step out onto your own private lanai and wake up to the sound and sights of waves crashing before meeting the group. 2. Group Friendly: With a gorgeous remodel and multiple living areas - plus BBQ grills, laundry rooms, and quiet lanais at both the guesthouse and the main house - Manako Hale Estate makes group travel a little breezier. 3. A Prime Location: Not only are you a 5-minute walk to sand and surf, but you have championship golf courses, beachfront dining, botanical gardens, and a luxury spa all under 1.5 miles from home – to name a few.
What makes this House unique
With Poipu Beach Park and Brenneke’s Beach a short walk away, you have endless opportunities for snorkeling, paddle boarding, surfing, and whale watching. You may even spot a sunbathing Hawaiian Monk Seal! Less than a mile away at Poipu Shopping Village, boutiques, art galleries, great restaurants, and live Tahitian dance and Hula shows offer an authentic taste of Hawaii. For adventure lovers, Kauai’s South Shore will not disappoint. Get an aerial view of the island with an Eco Adventure Helicopter Tour, zipline through the jungle, embark on a sunset cruise, or explore the Koloa Heritage Trail. 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.
Fantastic location on an amazing Island
Very comfortable house and guest house, easy walking to great beaches; we had a perfectly wonderful family gathering and looking forward to repeating next year!
Mahalo, Jennifer! It was a pleasure! Aloha!
Pictures do not justify the beauty of the property. Any and everything was provided for my family.
Once we got to the house, we were amazed by how much room there was. Family of 9 was so comfortable in the kitchen / dinning. My kids 6m, 2,3,5 all had fun on propert. There was sooo much yard for the kids to run and play, not to mention a little hill to roll down. I was super nervous as I did not rent a playpen or crib. But to my surprise, a playpen was in one of the bedroom closets. Which MADE MY WEEK!!!! I had to try the soap upon arriving, as all the reviews raves about it. (🙌🏽 Truth! Must use!!) honestly there are no words to explain the property. I loved the 2 washer dryer part. YES!! One in the guest house and one in the main house. Not to mention the property managers are sooo amazing and helpful about anything we need. So prompt! The only thing I didn’t see was the promised texts about the happenings in the area. Which was ok. As we were there for our extended family. All I know is I will be a repeat client for this property.

Great location! They really took care of us!
Amazing house with lots of space for our family of 7 (5 adults, 2children). VERY clean and well stocked. Short (and beautiful) walk to Poipu beech. Such a great spot hope to go back some day!!!!
Mahalo for staying with Great Vacation Retreats!! We look forward to your return!
Property was well kept. Lots of room for a party of eight. Waking distance to the beach
Great place, close to beach and shops. Property is great and would stay there again, if possible on our next visit out.
We're happy you enjoyed the accommodations! As they say, "location is key," and it seems it truly proved to be a great convenience and highlight for your stay. We hope you do visit Kauai again and we're looking forward to working with you again!
Our stay was amazing!
Our family of 10 stayed at the homes and was amazed at the views and accommodations. Nothing was missing here. We plan on staying again in the future for another family gathering. You wont be disappointed.
Its beautiful, serene, and oh so close to that beach!
