Kapaa condo description

Treat yourself to the spectacular ocean view from our remodeled, top floor, oceanfront condominium in the beautiful Pono Kai Resort.

Spend your mornings relaxing on our oceanfront lanai while experiencing Kauai's beautiful sunrises over the gentle waves of the Pacific. Our top floor, corner location gives you a full 180 degree view of the ocean and horizon.

Inside our clean and well maintained condo, you will enjoy travertine tile flooring, maple cabinets, granite countertops, a fully renovated bathroom, and fresh paint throughout. Our full kitchen is stocked with all the amenities that you will need to prepare that gourmet meal or afternoon cocktail.

Our central location is perfect for exploring all Kauai has to offer. The East coast of Kauai offers beautiful beaches, trendy shops, water activities, hiking, and sight-seeing. After a long day of surf and sand, East Kauai is the best place on the island to dine. There are numerous great restaurants that will suit all budgets and tastes.

For those looking to explore the island, we are half-way between the beautiful beaches of Poipu and the spectacular scenery of Princeville. Our central location makes exploring the island a breeze as you spend less time driving and more time experiencing the beauty of Kauai.

Note: FREE high-speed wireless internet service is now available to all of our guests.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: Aloha!! Welcome to our 'home away from home' on the beautiful island of Kauai. We purchased our home on our 4th trip to Kauai with the hopes of one day retiring to this beautiful island. Unfortunately, we are several years from retirement bliss so we are only able to spend a few weeks a year enjoying the condo. This, however, has presented a great opportunity for us to share our home with you. We are very lucky to have met some great people in Kauai who make sure the condo is in perfect condition for you when you arrive. We strive to provide a fantastic place to stay at a reasonable cost and the comments from past guests confirm that we are doing just that. Our condo offers all the amenities that you will find at home plus an unforgetable view of the ocean and a fabulous resort. We hope that you will consider our home for your next vacation and we look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Kevin and Angela

          Why the Owner Chose Kapaa:
          We purchased our condo on the East side of the island for several reasons: (1) Proximity to the water. We truly are as close to the water as you can get on Kauai. The pictures on the website are from our actual condo and our lanai. You can see the ocean from almost every room. (2) Location. We love to explore all that Kauai has to offer and our central location allows us to get to either end of the island in about 40 minutes. The East side also offers the majority of the restaurants and shopping in Kauai. We both love to eat and the variety (and quality) of food available close to the condo is outstanding. It also eliminates the stress of driving at night on the island. (3) Resort amenities - The resort offers all that you would expect and more. We have a big pool with hottub and saunas, two tennis courts, volleyball courts, shuffleboard, golf putting greens, and horseshoes. We also have a herb garden, several private BBQ areas, a fitness room, and a full-service activities desk. If you want to stay close to home, it's a fantastic place to spend time and of course the ocean/beach are only a few steps away.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          OCEANFRONT!!! We love waking up in the morning and seeing the turquoise blue water glistening in the morning sunlight. We spend every morning eating breakfast on the lanai and every evening watching the moonlight dance on the water. I can't imagine travelling all the way to Hawaii and not staying next to the ocean! Our location is truly oceanfront with only 50 yards of beach and grass between us and the water. Unlike Princeville, where almost all the condos are up on a bluff (thus requiring either a hike down a steep hill or a drive to the beach), we have a quick easy walk to the beach and water.
