Can you imagine yourself spending your vacation in a beautiful home on the Island of Kauai? Vacation home rentals are the best way to enjoy a truly relaxing, rewarding and budget-friendly family vacation whether you are looking for a getaway or a family reunion. This is a wonderful way to create lasting memories.
Vacation homes supply you with the room for relaxation after a long day of Kauai-style adventure while offering unique amenities and services for an enjoyable, stress-free holiday. A vacation home provides plenty of room for a family or a group of friends to not only have their own space, but areas for getting together to eat meals, play games or just spend time with one another. And, for some, vacation homes are a vacation unto themselves.
Some vacation home rentals have private pools, spas, lanais, beach access, large rooms, yards for dining, visiting or playing games, game rooms with foosball and ping pong, full kitchens and indoor and outdoor dining areas, entertainment and electronic amenities, and WiFi internet access. There is always something comforting about being in your own home. By renting a private home, the "home away from home" feeling will definitely be a benefit where you can relax and enjoy.
There is no doubt, you will have more privacy when you stay in a private home versus a condo or hotel room. You will experience the peace and quiet of not having neighbors right above you or next to you on the other side of the wall.
By renting a private home, you're able to save money in many ways. For example, while you are on vacation and staying on Kauai, there is the opportunity to prepare and eat meals in your own house. The vacation home can be a great alternative to a cruise while still creating those life-long memories for everyone.

The place had some allergy issues we did not anticipate and were told is not usually present. There was also a major cleaning issue we had to deal with as well. Very disappointed. We ended up changing our location of stay. Read more
I am very sorry that you were disappointed with Kipuka Hale. As you shared with us, after checking in, that you have an extreme sensitivity to feathers even if you are in the same room with only one or two feathers. It is not the practice of Great Vacation Retreats to carry feather pillows and we do not order them through our wholesaler. We really wanted to make it right for you and offered to come in and re-clean and try and find the feather, but you felt that that was not necessary and chose not to take us up on our offer. I'm glad you were able to find another place and we were able to re-book beautiful Kipuka Hale so that you could retrieve most of your money back. This house is extremely popular and well received, but, alas, it isn't for everyone. I hope you and your family had a wonderful time on Kauai.

Our stay at Kipuka Hale was wonderful! This was a most amazing home at such an affordable price. It was within walking distance to restaurants and the beach. Every amenity we would wish for was provided at the home. We wanted for nothing. We would highly recommend this home on Kauai. Read more
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Thanks for the review - we appreciate them.
Hope to see you again soon.
Very quiet and comfortable!

The rental agency was very easy to work with. The home was very up to date with plenty of room for 3 kids and 2 adults. The location from the beach is only a block away and very easy to walk to. It's very quiet. Located close to shops,restaurants and only about 20 minutes or so from the airport. The amenities were great, everything to prepare meals. The beds were awesome. The ceiling fans worked out great. We felt right at home and very comfortable staying there. The grounds were beautiful! You can't go wrong with this rental. We'll stay again when going to Poipu. Thank you for making our vacation memorable.

The house we rented was fantastic for two couples. Each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom. The floorplan was very open and clean. We BBQ almost everynight in the backyard. The beach is about a 3 minute walk from the house.
We went on a 5 hour Captain Na Pali wrafting trip which was a blast. The highlight of the trip was attending the Luau at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The food was fantastic.
The Great Vacation Retreats staff were very helpful in making sure our trip was a success. We could not of stayed at a better house. The trip was one of a lifetime.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Kipuka Hale. The house was everything and more for our Kauai holiday. A welcoming comfortable home close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We loved not having to share a common wall with other units like you get in a condo. The gardens were gorgeous, green and lush. I loved the folded turtle towels - a wonderful touch! I'd love to know the fragrance of the shower gel and body lotion they were devine. The power supply in the house seemed a little erratic sometimes but we managed. We would definitely stay here again and would love to bring the family from australia and share this wonderful house and island. As an australian Travel agent I don't often stay in holiday houses but Kipuka Hale is a wonderful holiday I would highly recommend.

Loved our stay at Kipuka Hale. Absolutely gorgeous home, loved the outside space and BBQ. Location was fabulous, just a very short walk to the beach. The owner was a dream to work with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Really nice touch of having a re-useable tote bag filled with things we might need at the house.

very clean, 5 mins to best beach in Kauai (especially in winter) , close to airport (20mins) Costco, and shopping.
service from Great Vacation retreats was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and prompt
we stayed for 3 weeks and felt more necessities could have been provided ie paper towels, toilet paper, windex etc.
as in all areas of Kauai you can hear chickens, roosters, left fan running on a/c unit to block the noise

We absolutely loved this home! The home was very private and with all the windows there was so much light which we loved! It was an easy 5 minute walk to the beach so the location was excellent. We would return to this home in a heartbeat without hesitation.

The Kipuka Hale was a wonderful condo that feels more like a house. It was very spacious, clean and stocked with everything you could need. All the appliances and electronics worked great, and the beds were comfortable. The outside space is beautifully kept and great in the evenings for star gazing. The condo is very close to Poipu beach which has some great snorkling, and many restaurants and shops. I would have liked beach chairs to use within the condo unit itself, but we rented them and it was easy enough. All in all it was a fantastic week and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Very beautiful and relaxing house only minutes from a great beac

This place rocks! Lots of room, everything you need, and it really felt like paradise. Air conditioning was a plus too! Within walking distance to a shopping plaza, lots of food, the beach, you hardly need a car! Inside the house was immaculate. The yard is very private and feels like a tropical paradise. Kudos to the gardeners! Everything was perfect and I would definitely stay there again! Thanks for making my vacation perfect!

This is a great place. Relaxing with everything you need. You could easily stay a month. As you approach the house for the first time, you wonder about it's location (near a busy street). But you never hear traffic, even on the gorgeous lanai. Easy walk to the beach. Great window walls for ventilation - you feel like your outside when you are inside. Great kitchen - well equipped. The gas grill on the lanai was perfect for grilled local fish. Read more
Thanks for submitting a review - perfect description of feeling like you are outside when you are inside - Mahalo!
Five stars for this property- it's paradise!

I recently stayed at this property with my parents and young son and we had the time of our lives! The home is immaculately maintained and just perfect for two families vacationing together. Each bedroom has its own attached bathroom and sliding glass door which leads to private lanais. There is plenty of space and all the décor really makes you feel like you're on the islands! It had all the comforts of my own home, but instead we were in lush paradise! The landscaping throughout the property is amazing- papaya trees, hibiscus, and a bubbling fountain made exploring with my little boy so fun!
The best part though was the close proximity to Brenneke's Beach. Literally, a 3-5 minute walk (depending on your pace) through great scenery to one of the best beaches I've ever been to. We spent every day at this beach and park; boogie-boarding, building sand castles, climbing the play structure, and splashing in the water!
I definitely plan on returning to show all my family and friends this amazing paradise!
