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.

                    My husband and I stayed 9 nights in this condo. It was our 4th trip to Kauai, and this was by far our favorite place! The condo's location is perfect, and is very tastefully decorated and furnished. We had an amazing time. I can't imagine a better spot, waking up and enjoying coffee on the lanai, going jogging on the path right behind the condo, then grabbing a book and walking across the lawn the the beach! Lots of great places to eat nearby. Ono Family Restaurant was excellent! The pool is nice too, but we honestly never felt the urge to use it because the beach is so perfect there. Sunrises were beautiful and moonlight on the water was breathtaking. We found everything we needed in the unit, and made good use of the beach mats and towels. Thank you Kevin and Angela! We hope to stay in your condo again!

                    My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Kauai at this property at Pono Kai. The place was in excellent condition and a perfect unit to spend a honeymoon. The central location on the Island made it easy to explore. I loved waking up to the view of the ocean every morning and sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise. The unit was fully equipped with a kitchen in great shape and various necessities for the beach (beach mats, Tupperware, etc.). We hope to come back for a future visit!

                    Condo was great! No need for air conditioning because of the breeze that flows through the condo and is very well maintained. Size was perfect for us. Staff at Pono Kai was very friendly and accommodating. Location is right in town within walking distance to restaurants, shops and beach.

                    We LOVED the condo in Pono Kai, overlooking the ocean!! IT was everything that we imagined it would be and expected, and a whole bunch more!! Everything was in such great condition- from the kitchen with all the furnishings, to the Igloo ice chest for our romantic picnics that we packed! The condo was bright and airy and the grounds were just lovely! The photos were just like what we got... great value for what we got. The owners were very attentive in communicating back to me, as we had various questions. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay on Kauai.

                    We have made several trips to Kauai, but always stay on the western side in Poipo. We decided to change it up this year and stay closer to the Na Pali coastline, so we looked for a condo in Kapaa. What we found, turned out to be paradise. This condo is awesome. The lanai is large and has one of the best ocean views I've seen. The interior has been redone and is very nice. It's a lot larger than most condos and nicely furnished. The grounds are well maintained and have tennis, volleyball, golf putting green and crocket along with swiming pool, Japanese garden and an herb garden. The condo is priced very reasonable. We will be staying there again.

                    We were here for four weeks in June and it wasn’t enough. The condo was very nice and the location couldn’t be better. We would have been content to stay on the lanai for our time there because the view and weather were so nice. We actually saw a Monk Seal and turtles from the lanai. For an older complex it was remarkably well kept. The grounds were beautiful and the condo itself was clean and well appointed. Our mission on this trip was to relax and that we did. There are a number of good restaurants and shops all within walking distance. The pace in Kapaa is nice and slow and the locals are pleasant and helpful. Honestly, I was a little leery because I have never used VRBO and all the ratings are so high it seemed too good to be true. I can’t speak for other properties but this one was everything advertised and more. Kevin was easy to deal with and responded to our questions in a timely manner. We actually had a different month scheduled but something came up and we couldn’t go. He facilitated a time swap without hesitation. Well worth it and we will be coming back to this condo.

                    My new new husband and I stayed here from 21/5/12 to 28/5/12 and enjoyed every second of it. The unit is nicely updated and well stocked. The views from the lanai are amazing and morning coffees out there were blissful. No A/C needed with the crosswinds that come from the lanai deck through to the bedroom window. We got married and stayed at the Waipouli Resort the week before. While that was lovely, we both agreed, that this unit at Pono Kai felt more like home and more Hawaiian; if we were to go back we would stay here before Waipouli in a heartbeat. The price for the location and view is fantastic! Kevin was so easy to deal with and answered us promptly with all of our questions. Great central location in Kapaa. The grounds of Pono Kai have a ton of games that you can sign up for, we had a fantastic games night with some friends on the grounds. We will be back (hopefully sooner rather than later!). Oh ya, great wireless as well!

                    This condo is by far the best value in Kauai! Kapaa is in a great location so it makes it very easy to get anywhere on the island in an hour or less. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and very well maintained. My husband, 2 year-old daughter and I loved waking up in the morning and eating breakfast with the sound of the waves right outside. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kauai.

                    We spent a week here in April and were so happy we picked this condo for our first visit to Kauai - it lives up to the description in every respect. The resort is located with easy access to both sides of the island, and this unit is beautiful...everything is freshly updated and comfortably furnished. And the oceanfront view can't be beat! This is an end unit, so it's extra light and airy. From the kitchen, you'd almost think you're in a cruise ship with the views of sky and surf. Kevin & Angela have added a lot of touches to help you enjoy your stay - beach mats, coolers and ice packs were especially appreciated for our picnics, as were the notes in the travel guide (so much to see and do, it's nice to get an insider's tips). We hope to visit Kauai again soon, and would love to stay here again when we do.

                  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.
