Why We Love This Home

1. Prince Kuhio’s Surf Break: Grab a blanket and get ready for a show right in your backyard! Prince Kuhio’s surf break, between Prince Kuhio and Lawai beaches, is a popular spot for surfers to show off their skills in the crashing waves.

2. Watch Sea Turtles from the Lanai: There’s nothing better than watching sea turtles playfully navigate the waves in the Pacific, except maybe watching with a cold drink from the comfort of your private lanai. During the winter months, you might even catch glimpses of whales and dolphins swimming in the blue waters.

3. Central Location: In one direction, you’ll find the popular Beach House Restaurant. In the other, the Spouting Horn blow hole delights visitors. If you’re looking for shopping options, the Kukui’ula Shopping Village has numerous shops, galleries and a gourmet farmers market.

Just 30 minutes from the airport, this condo puts you near Kukui’ula Shopping Center’s upscale grocery store, restaurants, shops, galleries, and a weekly farmers market (11-minute walk). Drive to the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and Spouting Horn Park (4 minutes) for hiking through native plants and to a stunning waterspout.

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.

We had such a great time here. The building was well maintained and quiet and the condo was clean and comfortable, with a great view that we enjoyed every morning at breakfast. Everyone we interacted with at GVR was kind and helpful. The beach gear and nylon cooler was a nice surprise, as well as a few treats waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived.

We had a short but lovely 2 night stay at this condo! Being able to open the patio door and listen to the ocean was amazing, plus we saw some sea turtles from the balcony! Air conditioning for nighttime was clutch since we couldnt leave windows/doors open. The bed was big and comfy and we slept really well here. Would love to come back next time were on the island.

I booked this place with Lynn Hufschmid and she made the entire process very seamless. She answered all my questions about the place and Kauai (especially after the floods) and was also very friendly. Lynn would answer my emails within the hour which I found to be very professional and convenient. When I return next year, I will be reaching out to her directly!
Unit 208 was absolutely perfect. We did not have a single complaint or suggestion to make it better. The condo was spotless and smelled so fresh every time we walked inside. The space was very roomy for 2 people and the views were spectacular. The proximity to the beaches on either side of the condo made this a very fun place to stay at. On top of that, the location was a prime spot to do all the activities in the south and west side of Kauai. We absolutely cherished every minute we spent there and are already planning on returning next year.

Good team
It will be great if gvr and can put guests in consistent properties when moving in same itinerary. The first unit was great the second one was abysmal. I felt I overpaid for it. MANAGER RESPONSE: Mahalo for leaving a review. I believe when you booked there were no other properties. Both properties are very different and both liked or not like by different guests based on expectations, size, location, etc...so it is very hard to know what will be a good fit for everyone. This condo gets very good reviews by most guests but again is very different from the other condo that you moved to. We will pass this on to the reservation agents so that if others are renting the same two condos again they can mention your comments, so thank you for letting us know.

Let me just start off by saying the pictures of the views and condo do not do it justice. The views are even more amazing in person. The sunrises are spectacular! We watched sea turtles play all day from the lanai. There is a lovely astroturf area which surrounds the condos which makes for a nice little walk while you are glimpsing into the ocean. The unit is exceptional! It is updated with an open floor plan, great decorating and many extra beach/play amenity's that other condos do not. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach tent, soft cooler and beach toys for the kids. Upon arrival we were given a box of cookies and a shark towel for our daughter. It was a kind welcome gesture :) There are so many beaches within a few miles. One especially, is a short walk from the condo which is named Keiki Beach. There is a great fish market called Kola Fish Market which provide excellent selection and at great prices! Shopping center within walking distance as well.

We absolutely loved our stay with Great Vacation Retreats. The location was unbeatable, the unit was nicely furnished, clean and had stunning views, as depicted. We especially appreciated the extras that came with the rental - including beach chairs, cooler and towels. We woke up starving and thirsty at 5am on our first morning - I can't begin to describe how happy we were when we found water and delicious coconut cookies in the refrigerator. Overall our stay perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Amazing condo, the actual views are better than the pics do justice! It almost feels like you're on the water. From the living room/kitchen you can hear the lapping waves. This management company is also great at providing a smooth experience, its clear they care about the guests and want to make them comfortable. They are very responsive to text/emails. The unit itself is very well appointed, and clean. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Bed is very comfortable, I was surprised at the quality of the mattress compared to most rentals. Being on the 2nd floor, its easy access by stairs (or elevator) to the parking lot. One downside is the lack of air conditioning in the bedroom. The rest of the unit doesn't really need A/C since there is ample breeze from the windows, however the bedroom is in the back of the unit so can get quite stuffy. Note the nearest beach to the condo is right next door, its good for snorkeling/surfing but not great for just swimming or playing in the waves due to it being quite rocky. There are other more sandy beaches nearby, approx. 10min walk or quick drive. MANAGERS RESPONSE: We are happy to announce that the owners have added air conditioning--a split system in the living room and bedroom. Please come back again someday and try our new, cooler condo!

The information provided gave us the information we needed and when we asked a couple of questions, they were answered promptly.
As my wife said, she could probably quit watching TV considering the view and the turtles that she could watch! For myself, it was a good area to take walks next to the ocean and see the surfers and beach goers. A nice place to stay

We will definitely rent from GVR again!
This was almost too good to be true- right on the ocean, watching sea turtles from the balcony, rental car included- we almost expected a surprise time-share sales pitch at some point! They welcomed us with a personalized note and gift bag which is more than I can say about any hotel I've ever stayed at, they were available for questions and made the entire process so easy. Reasonably priced-in fact, I hesitate to say underpriced for the value because I don't want them to raise the prices!

Excellent place to stay! We stayed at Kuhio Shores #208 for 4 nights and had an excellent stay, perfect for 2 of us. The photos represent the property well. The view from the lanai is beautiful and you can watch turtles surfing the waves below. Go around the building to view the beautiful sunsets. The property location was great --- easy to get to/from the airport and good for a home base to tour the rest of the island. Loved being right on the water (listening to the waves lull you to sleep!), with a short walk away to Lawai Beach (beside the Beach House Restaurant) which had the best snorkeling of the beaches we visited ~ felt like we were in an aquarium! Appreciated the use of beach chairs, cooler and other beach gear in the unit as well as the laundry facilities in the building. The kitchen was well-equipped and the 'start up' supplies for kitchen, bathroom and laundry mean you don't have to bring your own for a short stay. The weather was in the 80's (F) and we did not have a problem with the unit being too hot --- it was comfortable with the windows open for the ocean breeze and we used the fans supplied only as needed. A must-see for scenery is a drive to Waimea Canyon and the lookouts at the end of the road. We also went on an afternoon boat cruise to see the Na Pali coast with Holo Holo Charters --- stunning! Highly recommend staying here to relax and soak in the Aloha spirit!

All communication with your team members was excellent. Spoke with Bruce on the phone before booking and he was able to answer my questions and provide detailed information Received several emails from various team members leading up to our stay regarding things to do on Kauai, Athletic Club opportunity, etc.. Correspondence with Janie was prompt and informative. Arranging for late check-out the day before departure was easy and prompt by phone.
Our stay at Kuhio Shores #208 was excellent. The property was conveniently located, clean and the view was amazing. We appreciated the use of the beach towels and chairs from the unit, the convenience of laundry facilities on-site and the late check-out at no extra charge. All communication with GVR staff was professional and efficient. The maintenance issue referred to in #7 above was a leaking kitchen tap which we texted about upon arrival and were told that you were aware and that it would be dealt with at a later time. We found the 'sweet spot' with the tap handle to minimize the water flow so it was not a big issue for us. We would definitely return to this property and/or use GVR again and will recommend to anyone we know coming to the area. Thank you for a great stay!
