Guest review taken from Airbnb 7/1/19 for Pili Mai 1A --- This place was amazing!! The 4 of us (2 couples) were extremely comfortable. Everything was beautiful and clean. The beach chairs and cooler were a plus for the beach. We cooked a few times in the well stocked kitchen, but were in walking distance to many restaurants, and the beach! It is an excellent location on the island too, which makes commuting a breeze. The patio view of the coconut trees at sunrise and sunset was just beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and cant wait to come back! Until we meet again, Mahalo!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 6/29/19 for Manualoha 608 --- This is a great spot to get away. Well furnished, effortless check in and out process, and very clean. They take pride in offering a good condo for your stay, and were communicative as far as what if anything they could do to help during the stay. The free car rental was also a plus! Thanks again!

Guest review taken from Airbnb 6/29/19 for Pili Mai 8I --- Pili Mai was perfect for our family vacation. The condo was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It was like stepping into a perfectly furnished, brand new home. We enjoyed the views of the golf course and the ocean while sitting out on the lanai. The kitchen had everything we needed; the waffle maker was a pleasant surprise. It was also great to have a fully outfitted laundry room; it was nice to know that we would always have clean clothes and towels after trips to the beach. We were very appreciative of the supply of soaps, lotions, detergents, etc. Also, the provided beach gear (chairs, umbrella, boogie boards) was a nice amenity. The location was perfect - close to many restaurants/eateries and shopping in Poipu area. We would definitely stay here again!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 7/1/19 for Poipu Sands 412 --- Excellent and comfy place to stay. I love all the personal touches in the decoration. Beautiful view from the living room. Steps to the shore, and can walk to the beach shared with Grand Hyatt. This is the cleanest property we have ever stayed with Airbnb. Ample supply of clean towels and shampoo/conditioner/body wash. Highly recommend.

Guest review taken from VRBO on 7/1/19 for Makahuena 5201 --- Incredible Views/Great Condo We had the best vacation in this beautiful condominium in Poipu. Great location, and truly the best beach views in Poipu from our lanai. Newly installed air conditioning was great in the two bedrooms and the airflow in the main living area was good too. Can't say enough about Great Vacation Retreats - first class service from start to finish! We will definitely be back and will certainly book through GVR again too!

We have stayed in this exact unit before, 6-7 years ago. We came back because we love the location and walkable area. We try to walk everywhere. This trip was really nice because a car was provided too. That was why we chose it over the Plantation property near the Sheraton. we come every few years to visit friend that live on the island. --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Jan!!

The stay was everything we hoped for. We were aware there was no air conditioning when we booked the place. For some reason those trade winds that we heard hawai was know for did not exist during our stay. It was a bit uncomfortable and humid for our stay. Love this house but next time We return we will definitely book a place that has air! Mahalo!! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Bernadette!! Losing the trade winds was definitely ill-timed and we all felt it at our own private homes. We would love to work with you, again, and get you in an AC property the next time around! Aloha!!

We loved the location, views and pool at 101a. We were just super uncomfortable with how hot and humid the unit was. Our son was extremely uncomfortable in the second bedroom and ended up sleeping with us and on the couch. There is no air flow in the unit, just stagnant air. We loved all of the beach equipment and coolersa really nice touch! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Kate!!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 6/22/19 for Kuhio Shores 416 --- Unbeatable location, which is why this is the second time I've stayed at this complex (last time on the 3rd floor, this time on the 4th). Crashing waves right under you, ability to watch turtles and surfers alike from the balcony, and easy proximity to lots of Po'ipu area sights. Very well stocked kitchen in terms of dishware, drinking vessels, and Tupperware-type storage (one of the most important things IMHO), even if there isn't all that much in terms of cooking ingredients (no spices other than salt and pepper). We didn't use the AC at all during our stay, just the fans and open windows...but admittedly it was quite warm and most will be glad they do have AC available. A bit on the pricey side for sure (substantially more so than when I stayed in the complex the first time), but if you're going to stay on the southeast part of the island and want all the benefits of a condo (being able to make your own meals, full fridge, etc.), then this place is hard to beat.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 6/24/19 for Waikomo Streams 202 --- We had an absolutely wonderful stay! Upon arrival we got a helpful text from Angela and felt right at home. The kitchen is well stocked and roomy, the bed was really comfortable and the wifi was fast. The numerous fans really helped circulate the air, and it was nice to have chairs on the lanai where chickens would occasionally pass by. We loved having the umbrella and beach chairs in the closet and the beach towels provided. Everything was really perfect, and with the rental car included it was the best deal we could find on the island. Also near Poipu, the best beach we found on Kauai, with turtles coming ashore every day at sunset! We would definitely stay here again.

Property management company was pleasant and easy to work with. We couldnt find a cooler on our second day, called them up and within an hour they had one at our door! The home was clean and exactly as described and pictured on the listing. A little warm at nights but the fans helped tremendously. Would absolutely recommend!
