When you are relaxing at Poipu Shores in a beautiful oceanfront vacation rental, it will become immediately obvious why this is one of the most sought-after locations on Kauai. This beautiful oceanfront retreat has breathtaking views where you can watch the turtles swim below daily.
Located on Kauai's beautiful South Shore, Poipu Shores has one of the best views on the Island of Kauai. Imagine yourself sitting on your lanai admiring the rainbows or watching the sunrise over the water with the gentle trade winds flowing by. This is an ideal spot for dolphin and whale watching (in season) as well.
Just minutes away, the world famous Poipu Beach offers a beautiful spot perfect for swimming, snorkeling or laying out in the sunshine. While snorkeling in Poipu, you will discover a variety of colorful fish, including the state fish--Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. There is a wading lagoon for toddlers and young swimmers. Poipu Beach also has a large grassy park with children's play area, picnic area, showers and restrooms. Brenneke's Beachside Deli, across the street, offers cold drinks, snacks, and the South Shore's most popular shaved ice! Stop by the deli for delicious sandwiches, all kinds of snacks and treats, and the cool relief of shaved ice.
Adjacent to Poipu Beach, you will find Brennecke's Beach, one of the top body surfing and body boarding beaches on Kauai. Waves break consistently throughout the year, but it is usually best during the summer months.
There are two restaurants less than a ten-minute walk from Poipu Shores vacation condos. Casa di Amici's dining room is open-air, al fresco, casual, romantic, take-your-time dining at its finest with grand piano music on Saturday nights. Brennecke's Beach Broiler overlooks Poipu Beach where you can enjoy steak, seafood, pasta, sandwiches and an assortment of organic salad selections. Their bar is a great stop for pupus and to watch a game.

This room was so close to the ocean, it was mesmerizing.
It was well equipped with necessities. One or more key would have been great to have. Always left the one in the door lock so we wouldn't get locked out but the pool needed key to get in and out and the gate to the beach needed key
To get in and out. There were four of us and didn't always want to come and go together
Good idea and you are right. We will start keeping more keys at Poipu Shores since they are needed more than some other properties.
Thanks for the review and the suggestion!

Our family of 6 people enjoyed the condo very much. The view from the lanai was outstanding and we saw many whales and see turtles. The beach was a short walk or snorkel trip away. Everything was clean at the condo.

The view off the lanai at the Poipu Shores Penthouse were unbeatable. Waves crashing against rocks below. Several turtles swam up just below us. The bed was large and super comfortable. We also really enjoyed swimming in the pool.
We made use of kitchen for breakfasts and used the grill once for dinner. Lots of appliances and all you need to cook.
There was ample beach equipment as well - chairs, mats, boogie boards. Only thing missing was a small cooler to take to the beach (there was a big styrofoam one).

We spent end of July 2013 in Poipu Shore unit 405a and it was an excellent choice for our family of 5. Condo is specious and has everything you need on vacation. Balcony is perfectly oriented toward sunset and glass of vine to close the days in relaxing atmosphere of crushing waves in the shore just below was fantastic. Lots of turtles you can see even from the balcony.
Beaches close by offered us boogie boarding (available in condo), snorkeling and two secluded areas of the calmer sea. An amazing experience in the evenings on those beaches with waves crushing into each others over sandy walkway submerged just to your waste was lots of fun.
Rental car comes with the stay and we went around Island to visit Waimea Canyon, North shore and Napali Coast.

I can't say enough about our stay at Poipu Shores. We loved absolutely everything about it. The fourth floor location of 405a and proximity to the ocean is just ideal. We loved the crashing of the waves so close to the condo. We just couldn't believe how close the lanai is to the ocean. We loved watching the sea turtles feed on the rocks by shore. The room itself was very clean and nicely updated. It accommodated our party of five very easily. We also loved the pool area. It was also very close to the ocean and was nice and quiet. We would absolutely stay here again should we come to Kauai again. Great Vacation Retreats was awesome as well. They made the whole rental process so easy. The whole experience couldn't have been better.

I stay every year at the Shores, this year I choose 405 from Great Vacations. It was so very awesome, the place was everything I awaits go back for and then some. Great condo, even had spices, aluminum foil which has never happened in 20 years of renting kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. Will be going back next year for sure. Only complaint was the bed, next year a trip to Walmart will save me a lot of back problems.
Thank you for your review.
We have submitted this to the owner to see if perhaps we can get a new bed that might be more comfortable for your next visit:)

The views and sounds of the surf were wonderful. Almost daily, we enjoyed watching sea turtles from our lanai. All of the scheduled activities, such as snorkeling, helicopter tour, and fishing were easily accessed from Poipu, and it's central location allowed us to efficiently explore all areas of the island. We felt like we were at home, so much more appealing than the big parking lots at the large resorts.

It was going from a 5 star in Princeville to a two star. The location was okay not far from the beach- but the unit was rather dingie looking. I really did not like the noise/ you could hear everthing/ and everyone beings that the walkway is on the side of the bedroom. The master bedroom was also very noisey with the ocean crashing. Perhaps if I did not stay in such a nice unit in Princeville I'd not have such a harsh opinion but all in all this unit is not very nice- especially for the price!

We were very pleased with the way the condo was outfitted and cleaned. We have been renting beach houses and condos for 20 years and this one was the cleanest and best equipped so far. Everything we needed was there except for boogie boards and chairs. But we were able to rent them from great vacation retreats at a very reasonable rate.
Great vacation retreats was fabulous to work with. They brought us fans when we were too hot and fixed a few minor things. But mostly they were so pleasant to talk to and gave us great suggestions on things to do.
Our only complaint was it was much hotter than we expected in October. We learned to shut all the drapes in the late afternoon when the sun shone directly in. Great vacation retreats brought over many fans which helped a lot. But the bedroom didn't get the cross breeze that the rest of the unit got. So we were a bit uncomfortable sleeping. But the rest of the condo cooled down nicely.
This unit is right next to a blow hole, so sleeping with the windows open wasn't an option for us. Just as we would drift off, we'd hear a big crash as the ocean came up through the rocks. We wished we had a volume control or a mute button! But it was magnificent in the day time.

I think that the unit could use a new front door and a new sliding patio door with screen. The balcony could use a bit more cleaning attention.and perhaps the addition of a private grille. Otherwise the unit was absolutely beautiful. We did not take advantage of the pool on the premises as we were more interested in visiting the many beautiful beaches on Kauai.The sunset views from the balcony were awesome and the surf crashing on the rocks beneath our bedroom window peacefully lulled us to sleep each night. I think that the exterior of the buildings could use a facelift in order to compete with the properties that are close by.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We will make sure and alert the cleaners to the lanai.
I do believe that painting is in the plans soon for the exterior of Poipu Shores and possibly the doors. Unfortunately private grills are not allowed on lanais at any of the condos due to fire concerns.
Hope to see you again in the near future!
