Poipu Sands #115
Perfect unit in a perfect location
Mainland worries melted away immediately. Great food (Casa di Amici), great scotch (Stephenson Library) and, of course, the sun! **How I loved the view from the lanai's kitchen!!

Thank you so much for the hospitality of your beautiful condo
These last ten days have been AMAZING. We couldn't think of a better place to spend our honeymoon. The views are excellent. The food was great at Keokis Paradise, The Beach House and Brenecke's on the beach. The NaPali Coast boat tour was beautiful and the snorkeling was very fun. Thank you again for everything!
~ Nate and Syd

Poipu Sands #222
We had a nice stay
The condo was well equipped and well furnished. The one thing to improve is the quality of the mattresses in both bedrooms. Need firm mattresses!

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo on 2 levels more than fulfilled our wishes
Both baths were spacious with granite countertops and tile floors. Both bedrooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The great room kitchen, living area and dining area were big on space and up-to-date appliances and furniture. Both decks on each level were welcoming. We especially liked the welcoming beachbag filled with all necessary paper items, cleaning products and enough coffee supplies for the first few days. The multiple beach towels provided were also welcome, along with many extra towels in the baths. The condo was sparkling clean throughout - a wonderful vacation experience.

Poipu Sands #225
The condo was clean, very roomy. Loved the lanai's
There was a starter tote bag of; coffee packets 2, dish soap, toilet paper(2 rolls), laundry soap 2 small packets, bounce sheets 2 small packets, kelnex boxes 2, dishwasher soap when we arrived. No need to buy hand soap, body soap, shampoo, body lotion, which there was plenty of. Plenty of dishes, wine glasses, glasses.. Cons: Would of gave this unit a 4 star if they had: if there were few more rolls of toilet paper. If there were beach items ie, cooler bag, ice freezer packets, mats (oppose to have to rent the beach items from Great Vacation Rental company.) Kitchen to replace frying pans, as the two there were scuffed up petty bad. Few staples such as, saran wrap, foil paper, olive oil, a spice rack form costco (cheap to buy). Grounds: The grounds were well kept, staff always cleaning, pruning. Is like a resort setting. Location: Walkable to Shipwreck Beach, quick drive to Poipu Beach. Quick drive to Koloa for groceries.

We loved staying here
The condo is spacious and well maintained, and in a nice area. Nice ocean views, a great lawn, tall palm trees and swimming pool. I loved the art, the video and book collection. It was quiet and you could hear the ocean at night. Great master bedroom upstairs with a private deck, and the downstairs lanai is big enough to have dinner for 8. Poipu Beach is a great area of Kauai, and there are many high quality restaurants nearby. Food shopping is a longer drive, although a small natural foods store opened by. Don't bother shopping at Big Save, the food there is the quality of what comes out of a vending machine. The kitchen is not very well equipped, the knives were few and dull. Just a few dented pots. We ended up buying knives. Also, there were no spices other than salt and pepper. So, if you're planning on cooking, make sure you have what you need first. While we were there, we saw whales not far off the coast, and sea lions were on the beach. Kauai is a great...

Poipu Sands #412
Beautiful condo. Didn't think it would be as quiet as it was
We had the pool all to ourselves! Enjoyed eating on the lanai several times. There's an ocean view from the master bedroom and lanai. Lots of fans in the home, which come in handy. The 2nd bedroom with queen and twin beds stays much cooler than the master. Saw sea turtles in the morning. Others said they had seen dolphins the morning before. Easy walk to the Hyatt where we enjoyed their swings facing the ocean for a romantic sunset. Would love to stay here again.

We opened the lock box and started a wonderful stay in 412
The layout and appointments were lovely, and the kitchen was well provisioned with the necessaries for home cooking, which we much enjoyed doing with our family. Our grand children particularly liked being able to head directly outside on the great expanse of lawn, where they frolicked with a great view of the ocean. The Poipu location was great for hikes and beaching nearby- services within a short drive. (We stopped at Costco to give us an initial supply, and then locally supplemented) Missed having a hot tub and fitness facility. No one told us that there was a car that went with the unit! That would have been a very welcome saving!!!

Great condo! Clean, and spacious
Both baths have plenty of counter space and showers only. Master shower is huge. Enjoyed the oceanview from the master bedroom and lanai. I found the second bedroom more comfortable as it was cooler in there and the queen bed is more comfortable to me than the king was. My husband liked both just fine. There is also a twin bed and buit-in desk in the 2nd bedroom. Plenty of towels. This condo had some extras...books, including guide books, beachchairs, pool noodles, snorkel gear, extra fans to name a few. The Bose system along with a cd collection was very nice. Overall very comfortable, clean and well taken care of. The pool was great. We enjoyed it all to ourselves one evening. It was fun floating while stargazing. Walked down to the water which is close and watched the sea turtles as the sun rose. Another couple had seen dolphins there one morning. Would come back to this condo in a heartbeat and highly recommend. GVR is also very easy to work with.

Poipu Sands #417
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We were hesitant in booking on-line, but Lou Johnson and Carly put our minds at ease. The service Lou provided (picking up from airport and taking us back) was greatly appreciated!!! We will never forget 4 adults in a Corolla overnight (Tsnumai scare) - it was an adventure! Thank you again for the wonderful stay & service. The 2 condos were perfect & clean! My son and daughter-in-law recommended Great Vacation Retreats to a couple & baby who stayed at one of your properties recently.
 
The condo at Poipu Sands was a terrific location
We are about to move to our third location here in Kauai. We are looking forward to our next condo. I wanted you and the staff at GreatVacationRetreats to know that you did a great job in finding us great places. The condo at Poipu Sands was a terrific location. The views and first class furnishing exceeded our expectations, a really beautiful condo. Thanks again, I have recommended you to another acquaintance.

Our family was more than pleased with our condo in Poipu Sands
From the spacious rooms, to the beautiful lanai, we really enjoyed our vacation home. We cooked most meals and appreciated the dishwasher, microwave, and coffee maker. We even brought most meals outside to eat during sunrise and sunset. The pool is really nice and relaxing, though we spent most of our time at the Hyatt enjoying their pools and other amenities. We had a great time at this rental, and would enjoy coming back again for more from and relaxation.

Poipu Sands #427
Poipu Sands was beautiful
Our unit 427 was spectacular. All amentiies were updated. The bathrooms were luxurious. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The location is perfect. We will definitely rent this unit again.
~ Jennifer
 
This condo was perfect for the 4 of us
The bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious. The lanai was huge and had a great view of the ocean. We would definately recommend this property!
~ Christina
 
The condo was lovely & spacious
We were two couples & both bedrooms we had were large with private bathrooms so it worked out just great. They had everything we needed in it as far as kitchen utilities & linens, etc. One needs to have a car to get anywhere from there (but that is probably true about most places in Kauai). It wasn't far to drive to most places we wanted to go to & even the farthest places are not that far... Kauai is a small island. We would recommend staying in this condo.
