Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/18/19 for Regency 621 --- This space is incredible. First off, our POC was fantastic from planning our booking to checking in and then throughout the stay. What I don't think I expected was for the space to be so well appointed. From the small touches in the kitchen (coffee starter packs, a brita for water), to the beach towels throughout, books for the pool, and large amount of beach fun items- we really had EVERYTHING we could need. The central AC was a hit and I was shocked at how cool it was in the loft bedroom (for those of you questioning the stuffiness- it was FANTASTICALLY cool and there is a window that you can open if needed and that provides great light). The folks staying in the Master Bedroom noted it was a bit less strong in that room so something to be aware of if you are traveling for the AC (which- I'm sure you are NOT). Either way, the space stayed cool and they had ceiling fans and standing fans for use as well!The beds were decent and the proximity to a pool that was almost always empty was such a fun piece. We also opted into the beach club option which had a gym, WONDERFUL toddler pool area, and poolside bar and food service (fun way to still get that resort vibe) All in all, we will absolutely keep this place in mind for our next trek to Kauai. Mahalo Nui Loa! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Jessica!! What an awesome and detailed review! We're happy you had a great time on Kauai and that you were taken care of every step of the way! You have been a pleasure to host and we look forward to working with you, again, soon. Aloha!!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/12/19 for Kiahuna Plantation 307 --- Excellent space with every amenity we needed. The rental car was the icing on the cake. Great hospitality, beautiful space, views, walk to the beach, walk to the shops, close to restaurants and shopping. Saw some beautiful turtles. Loved staying on the south shore and would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything! My family and I will be back for sure! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Kasey!! We're happy you took advantage of the rental car! Kiahuna definitely provides a lot of value with it being so conveniently close to everything in Poipu! We look forward to your return, Aloha!!

The only issue we had was the bathtub upstairs. Because of the depth of the tub getting in and out was super hard. I fell pretty good climbing out the last day. --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: We hope you are alright! We're very sorry to hear that, and we'll definitely share this feedback to our team! Mahalo, Hannah!!

We enjoyed our place, lots of fans and accommodations in the room. Great location and access to nearby coffee shop, gym. We didn't realize our room was 3rd floor but we didn't mind. My mother said she wouldn't have wanted that high up so maybe give a heads up if you didn't. Keep doing what you're doing, we have stayed at nice places before but you guys did a great job! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Abigail!! You have been amazing guests and we look forward to working with you, again! Aloha!!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/11/19 for Kiahuna Plantation 436 --- We had an excellent stay! The unit is so cozy with amazing breezes when the window and door vents are open. It is a very short walk to the beach (and you get cards to use for towel rental). The beach was gorgeous and we saw both a seal and a sea turtle within the first five minutes of our walk. The touches in the unit were thoughtful and appreciated (snacks, guide, toiletries, etc...). It was a perfect location in the south (close short drives to the airport and Waimea Canyon). I wish we could live here, so I definitely would book again! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Kelly!! Location makes Kiahuna one of the best places to stay on Kauai! We appreciate your review! Aloha!!

overall good, with one problem on last day being locked out with code prematurely changed. I was in touch the first day with Gigi regarding the heat and she said their was nothing that could be done. She very efficiently handled a repair needed. --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Aloha Paula, thank you for your review. It has been an unusually warm summer for us this year. We are looking into the potential of getting ac at this property. Unfortunately, they are not allowed and/or not possible at all properties. Check back for updates!

I don't enjoy leaving this score when, for an otherwise perfect property, I would give a 5. I performed hotel/accommodation inspections as a travel agent for 25 years and arranged large group tours all over the world. So I know what is reasonably acceptable to the average traveler.I booked a small cruise ship in the Galapagos where the AC went out in some of the cabins...not fun. I was concerned in advance but, as I said, ads assure comfort and it was the first floor. --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Aloha Paula, thank you for your review.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/5/19 for Kuhio Shores 208 --- Our stay in #208 was absolutely amazing! Great location and the ocean view was spectacular. Right outside our lanai we watched turtles swim around us every evening, that was one of the highlights of our trip. The space was very clean with great furnishings. The king sized bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, and in fact the pillows were so comfortable too. Beaches and shops are close by. Communication via emails and texts were responded to promptly. We even upgraded our rental car and that was an easy process to do. Everything went smoothly and over all, we were very happy with our stay and already looking forward to coming back and booking again with Great Vacation Retreats --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Melody!! We appreciate it! We're happy you enjoyed your time on Kauai and we hope you come back, soon! Aloha!!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/3/19 for Kiahuna Plantation 436 --- The description and the reviews are very accurate- all was as we expected. We really appreciated the kindness of all the people we interacted with. Unfortunately the condo complex was doing parking lot repairs while we were there (which was very noisy), but the response from GVR staff was so thoughtful, understanding and quick. We especially loved being walking distance to the beaches and Little Fish for morning coffee and aa bowls. We would happily return!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/5/19 for Pili Mai 12I --- The place was amazing and my friends and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay while on vacation. The pictures were accurate and once we stepped foot into the house all of our mouths dropped. We made sure to make use of everything from the kitchen to the laundry room to the pool and grill. We were very impressed and wished we could have stay longer! I loved the kitchen and blue rocking chairs that extended out, they were so comfy! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who visits Kauai and will be sure to book through Great Vacations Retreat Air BnB again! :)

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/5/19 for Kiahuna Plantation 313 --- This place has it all. Good location if you are interested in exploring the west side one day and the north shore the next. Then maybe you want to take a lazy beach day, well youre in luck too, its walking distance and you provided with coolers, towels, beach chairs, etc. in your room. Very communicative and all the detailed instructions you need to navigate the property. Also very clean, ample parking and lots of amenities. Definitely go to the Little Fish Cafe across the street for breakfast!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/2/19 for Poipu Shores 304A --- This condo sits 100 feet away from the ocean's edge with waves crashing against the rocks. It is breathtaking and we spent hours on a lovely patio watching it. The unit itself was much roomier and more comfortable than it looked in the pictures. The kitchen was beautiful and seemed brand-new, the beds were very comfortable and there was great air conditioning. I would love to stay here again.
