Ohana – family – is at the core of Daydream Believer, a mountain-view home that's just a 5-minute walk from Shipwreck’s Beach. With a downstairs game room, two living rooms and a scenic yard with outdoor lanai, everyone can find a space to fit their idea of "relaxation." Tech-forward design, tasteful tropical décor and stunning views of Kauai’s landscape mean every moment of your getaway will feel as breezy as a day on island beaches.

Cuddle up for movie night on a Smart TV with Bluetooth sound system or chat over a glass of wine before dinner. Challenge the kids to air hockey or feel the breeze on an outdoor lounge chair. And when everyone’s ready for dinner, prepare your favorite recipes in an open kitchen with room for several chefs to work together, enjoying mountain views while they cook. Then sit down at a stately dining set for 12.

Sleeping space in this split-level home ranges from an inviting master suite to a kid-friendly living room crash pad. Sleep up to 15 in two king-size bedrooms, a queen-size bedroom and a bedroom with a queen-size and twin bed, plus two pullout queen-size sleeper sofas in the downstairs living room and an additional queen sleeper in the garage. Three large bathrooms offer space for everyone to refresh and rejuvenate.

All of our Great Vacation Rentals have tech-forward amenities to 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. Plus, you'll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.

Why We Love This Home

1. Room for the Group: Vacation is all about time spent together, and this home is perfectly suited to accommodate your group. The kids can face-off in foosball while the grown-ups wind down with a cold drink in hand on the lanai.

2. Fun in the Sun: Enjoy your own slice of Kauai’s breathtaking landscape in our yard. Let the little ones play in the grass while you keep an eye on them from a lounger, and dig into alfresco meals at a second-floor lanai with BBQ, dining space and sweeping mountain views.

3. Beach Bum Friendly: Follow the path along the Poipu Kai Greenbelt for a 5-minute walk to Shipwreck’s Beach, where you can hike to the top of a cliff for a bird’s eye view, then continue along the scenic Maha'ulepu Coastal Trail. Or make a splash at the community pool (10-minute walk) or beautiful Poipu Beach (15-minute walk or three-minute drive), the most popular beach on the South Shore.

Wake up early and watch the sunrise at Shipwreck’s Beach, then make your way to Grand Hyatt Kauai – each a 5-minute walk away – to choose your own adventure.

Whether it’s teeing off on an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, hiking or zip lining through Kauai’s lush landscape or getting up close and personal with sea creatures during an afternoon of scuba diving, you’ll have no problem finding an experience that’s worth writing home about. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, walk 5 minutes to Brennecke’s Beach Broiler for pupu platters, ahi tuna burgers and more with a vista view.
Poipu Beach Athletic Club

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.

This home was amazing! Great location and perfect for a large group. We had 10 in our group and everyone was very comfortable. Dont let the no A/C hold you back, the home has a ton of fans to keep the air circulating. The home is close to a lot of beaches and places to eat. Everyone we spoke to was helpful and polite. I would highly recommend!

We would for sure rent through Great Vacation Retreat's again.
We loved our stay at the Daydreamer Believer. We were in Kauai for a wedding and had multiple guests and the space was more than accommodating. The kitchen is well equipped and the multi-level home allows for privacy, while the common areas are plenty big for everyone to hang out in. The garage has beach chairs, an umbrella, bikes and lots more to make the beach more enjoyable. We loved how easily we were able to access the beach.

We have rented many houses for our family when we stay for the holiday in Hawaii. This one worked well for all of us, and everyone had a good time.
While the house worked well for us in terms of space and amenities, the floors were extremely dirty upon our arrival. It may have been the playroom floor in particular, but in general The tile floor throughout was sticky and very sandy. it was black dirt that covered the bottoms of our feet along with the layer of sand - several of us took two wearing socks whenever in the house! MANAGER RESPONSE: Mahalo for leaving a review. So sorry that the floors were not up to standard during your stay (your standard or ours). We are sending someone asap to do a deep clean and see what the problem is and have also let the regular housekeepers know. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

We thank your employees for their courtesy in handling our request, as we were only looking for a 2-day rental. Other places we called were very brusque (verging on rude) about our not meeting their minimum rental period.
The unit was very nice. We did leave a comment sheet about 3 needed maintenance items.

The house was amazing! I got married in Kauai, and the house was the perfect place for my family. It is located on a quiet street, had a large fully stocked kitchen, enough space and rooms for everyone to be together or enjoy some quiet time, and a close drive to the beach and wedding location! I would definitely recommend this place to any family visiting Kauai.

The Daydreamer home was perfect for our families consisting of three households and ten individuals. The kitchen worked very well for us as we cooked practically all our meals instead of going out to restaurants. The house has no aC and we had no need for cooling as the tradewinds kept us cool at all times. The Poipu area turned out to be optimal for us, providing for reasonable travel to all parts of the island. It was convenient and fun walking to the beaches with the children. Coordinating with Great Vacation Retreats was easy and they did a great job taking care of us. We would absolutely rent the Daydreamer home again.

They call this house Daydream Believer and believe it, this is a dream! First and foremost, as the saying goes, location location location. This home is located right off the greenbelt, slightly closer to Shipwreck Beach than Poipu, but both are just minutes away on foot. It's on a street where most of the other people are residents as opposed to vacation renters, and the ones we met were very friendly. We were a family of 7. Our two girls and their friend stayed in the lower suite, which has a large living room and bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, fridge and washer/dryer, as well as a nice backyard area. They were very comfortable down there and could stay up as late as they wanted without disturbing the rest of the group. The middle floor contains the living/dining/kitchen area, along with a beautiful outdoor eating area balcony with a grill, which we put to good use. It's a beautiful view and so lovely to sit out and have your meal any time of day... etc.

Parents& teenagers will agree this was the Perfect dream house! This was an outstanding house for large families. We traveled with 5 teenagers & 2 younger kids. The multiple levels & living areas gave all of us space to spread out & watch t.v. or chill. Awesome location for adults & older teens to walk to beach,pool, restaurants,shops or Grand Hyatt. Adults can have a cup of coffee on outdoor patio & enjoy the views. A moment of peace before the day adventures begin. A 5 minute drive to grocery store was a definite plus.Time change from Texas to Kauai meant all the teens were asleep by 11:00p.m. & up in the morning by 8:00a.m. We will definitely stay here again!!
