About Us

The story of Great Vacation Retreats started before I arrived on Kauai. Fifteen years ago, when my husband and I were still in culinary school, we were given a sink-or-swim chance to become vacation rental managers by friends who asked us to handle their South Lake Tahoe property.

“There’s probably a book somewhere that tells you how to do it,” they said. So we pulled ourselves up by the bootstraps and never looked back.

Since then, we’ve done it all – from sneaking in last minute reservations to playing detectives for past guests who hid their valuables and forgot where (our favorite phone call yet). For the past 9 years, with the help of our team of seasoned vacation rental professionals, we’ve combined our love of hosting guests with our love of Kauai to bring you unforgettable island getaways.

Our goal is simple: to make every guest who visits us a raving fan of our island and our properties. We bring true Kauai to you with thoughtful surprises, like freshly picked fruit or locally sourced chocolates. We take pride in providing you with insider knowledge to unlock the island’s potential for fun, relaxation and making memories.

Communication is key to the Great Vacation Retreats team. From the moment you set eyes on our properties online to long after you’ve checked out, we’re just a click, email, text or phone call away. We only employ the most dedicated professionals, and we work with a housekeeping team that keeps our rentals spic and span from top to bottom. You’ll never find somebody else’s sand inside your retreat.

Most importantly, we want you to spend less time sweating the small stuff and more time catching big waves. Come be a part of our ohana. We can’t wait to meet you.
