Guest review taken from VRBO on 7/21/19 for Poipu Shores 101C --- Great Poipu property. We stayed 5 nights in July. The condo was exactly as described. Recently remodeled and very nice. The best feature of the property is the second floor balcony overlooking the ocean. We saw multiple green sea turtles any time we looked, floating on the waves. Several times we saw groups of manta rays swimming by. The condo is well stocked with beach gear and we didn't need to rent anything. It's a short 10 minute walk to the beach. The majority of the restaurants we went to are a less than 10 minute drive from the property. Overall wonderful experience. We would definitely stay again in the future.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/24/19 for Kiahuna Plantation 248 --- A great spot to stay in Poipu! The condo is centrally located on the island which makes it easy and fairly quick to travel to all the amazing sites in Kauai! It is located near the beach (about a 3-minute walk), as well as shops and restaurants. The condo is well stocked with standard kitchen items (pots, pans, utensils, etc.) which makes it a nice place to stay with a family. Though it is a 1 bedroom condo, we stayed comfortably as a family of 5, as the sofa and chair in the family room fold out to accomdate 3 additional people. The condo is clean and fairly spacious with a distant ocean view. Great Vacation Retreats added some special touches with music and Kauai travel tips on when we walked in the room, along with a family game, activities for the kids and amazing coffee from Kauai Coffee Company! We will definitely stay here again!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/14/19 for Poipu Sands 122 --- This condo is great! Our family had a wonderful time here. It was quiet, the views were gorgeous, the use of the pool was nice without being overly crowded and the layout of the condo was perfect for 2 teen siblings to have separate sleeping spaces! Would definitely rent again next time we visit!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/14/19 for Kuhio Shores 215 -- You can't beat the view from the living room. We enjoyed spending time sitting on the balcony watching the surfers or eating at the table with ocean waves. At night, you can see a sky full of stars over the ocean. The hosts were very responsive and accommodating and we enjoyed the complimentary car rental! We were minutes drive from Sprouting Horn and from local grocery stores like Whaler's General Store and Living Foods. It's also a convenient location if you want to drive to Waimea Canyon or to some of the great hikes on the East side of the island. The area directly in front of the condo is rocky but we saw many surfers use it to get in the water. Poipu beach (and Baby Beach) are a very short drive. We also explored some of the most beautiful beaches on the North Shore, which is about a 1.5 hour drive away. The condo is only 25 minutes or less from the airport. We would definitely stay again. We loved Kauai.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/17/19 for Kuhio Shores 208 --- The residence was spectacular! The pictures are extremely accurate on the ocean view and the interior of the apartment. The residence was very clean and quiet. The sound of the waves was calming with a great lanai to sit on with comfortable furniture. Parking was plentiful. Great Vacation Retreat was very informative and ensured that they answer all questions concerning the property and check-in. I could not have wished for a better experience. I told them I was coming in for my birthday and they were so nice to get me a birthday balloon and cupcakes. Thank you so much! I can't wait to come back.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/17/19 for Hale Moku --- I booked this house for a work trip with my colleagues so I cared about 2 things: privacy and work environment. Having a private bathroom for 4 bedrooms made sure we had the first, and I have to admit that this was one of the best work environment's I've ever had! The location is unrivaled: having turtles and dolphins join your work sessions is something I'll never forget and hope I can do it again!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/17/19 for Poipu Palms 204 --- Amazing location, right on the water Wonderful property, exactly as described in the listing. The thing we couldn't get over is how close to the water it is -- the pool deck is practically on top of the rocks that the waves break on. Made for great views/experiences while at the pool deck and from our lanai. The pool deck was not crowded during our stay which was great. We loved watching turtles and even spotted a pod of spinner dolphins offshore one afternoon. The unit was a little warm (without A/C), but this was disclosed in the listing and so we expected it and it was no surprise. Just keep the windows open and things cool off in the evenings. Really appreciated the small conveniences like beach chairs and boogie boards, although it was too rough to boogie board during our stay. Would book again. Great experience.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/8/19 for Villas Of Kamalii 20 --- This property was THE best place we stayed in our recent visit to Kauai. Not only is it beautifully furnished, fully stocked (spices, cooking equip) and offers a convenient pool, it is perfectly situated to explore Princeville on foot or in the car. There are several beaches within walking distance (although two- Hidden Beach and Queens Bath- are a very challenging walk (not to be done after a rain). We loved Puu Poa Beach by the St. Regis (easier to get to AND you can buy cocktails/smoothies/lunch right at the beach). We also had a lovely last meal at Happy Talk Restaurant (also walking distance) for a fun dinner with music and beautiful views. A romantic dinner was had at the St. Regis. Plenty of options to explore. Definitely stock up at the Foodland right around the corner in the Princeville Center. What a great management team (always accessible for questions/recommendations) and what an INCREDIBLE property!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/9/19 for Kiahuna plantation 307 --- Great time during our stay for a family of five. Loved the proximity to the beach and access to the athletic club pool. I was a big fan of the Plantation architecture that felt much more true Hawaii-like compared to a more modern place. A perfect landing spot while taking in the south and west side sites/activities of Kauai. The service and communication was excellent. Mahalo!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/10/19 for Poipu Shores 101B --- AMAZING VIEW!!!!!!! If you think the photos are amazing wait until you see it in person. Easy check in process as all we had to do was open the lock box to get the key. It was a little tricky getting it to work at first but once we got the hang of it it was fine (you have to turn the key and handle at same time to open) Nice space, enough for 2 to comfortably relax. The entire space is tiled, so you have to be careful if the floor gets wet. You do step down intro the bedroom/ main bath areas. Kitchen had everything we needed. There are gas grills in a common area we also used. The shower had plenty of hot water and water pressure. It also had shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There were bottles of liquid soap at each sink and the bathroom vanity also had lotion. Good island scent, I loved it. The vanity is outside the bathroom, which was nice for getting ready. The bed was comfortable with plenty of bedding. The washer and dryer were very handy and easy to use. There are a few cleaning supplies in case you want to clean up since you don't have daily service. The air conditioning worked so well we would get cold. They have a nice binder of information on the table. The view is stunning. The 'private' lanai is shared with the condo next door. We were fortunate to have good neighbors. They were very nice and we were never really on the lanai at the same time. We saw many sea turtles from the lanai. You will go to sleep listening to waves crashing. The pool is nice, also private as you'll need your key to gain access. The water was warm and clean. There is a common place that has a few tables that looks out over the pool. It's a covered space and I'm sure if you are traveling with a larger group you could use it for dinner together. There are also recycle bins in that space. WARNING - the parking was a bit stressful. Because this resort is right on the water it's also down the hill. Parking is tight. If you don't need rent a large vehicle don't because that will make parking worse. A compact car would be easiest. There are 3 levels of parking with a loading/ unloading spot at the lowest level (along with handicap space). My other warning, you have to take several steps to get to this condo. There is an elevator in the building but not to this space. The hosts were prompt answering both emails before we landed on the island and text messaging once we checked in. Easy check out process. Follow their directions for the room and lock the key back in the box. Overall it is a very nice space with plenty of room (dresser, hangers in closet). They had beach gear we never ended up using. The view alone is worth the stay. I would stay here again if I came back to Kauai.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/5/19 for Poipu Sands 417 --- This unit is immaculate! We stayed here 6 nights & enjoyed all of the amenities this place has to offer. Beds were very comfortable, and we all slept very well. There is no A/C, but the ceiling fans keep this place cool. They even have several more floor fans in the closet in case you need more air circulation, but we didn't need them, even though the weather outside was pretty warm & humid. You can also hear the waves crashing on the shore, which was pretty awesome as you're going to sleep! Another thing that was nice is the free usage of boogie boards, chairs & cooler. Plus it was really nice that they threw in the free rental car from Alamo! Really can't beat this (Website hidden by Airbnb) was great all the way around!
