ReviewsWrite a review
We have stayed at the Pono Kai on three other occasions and this visit was as wonderful as the previous ones. The condo was exactly as it was advertised. A perfect setting on the beach front, a well-kept facility, friendly staff, clean buildings, and close to everything. Housekeeping was very helpful to answer what few questions we had and the front desk staff was most helpful, as well. We'll return in 2015 and will hope to have the same accommodations as it now feels like our home away from home.

Manager response: Mahalo for your review. We, too, as owners, appreciate all the Pono Kai staff, their ongoing care of the facility and their "aloha spirit". The condo's ocean front location, as well as this unit's location at the resort for access to the parking lot, swimming pool, laundry and main office has made these amenities within easy reach for our guests. So glad that you view C102 as your home away from home and we look forward to your return in 2015.

Manager response: The beauty of Kauai, the Garden Island, truly is a touch of paradise with all its natural beauty---from the stunning sunrises over the ocean at Pono Kai to the breathtaking Na Pali Coast, from the impressive Waimea Canyon to the prized botanical gardens or from the magnificent sunsets at Ke'e Beach to an enjoyable picnic by the ocean. These unforgettable experiences are all part of time spent on Kauai, the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands.
Love Kauai and C102
Love Kauai and C102
Perfect condo in every way. Setting couldn't get much better, very clean and well stocked. Probably te best stock rental I have ever used. Update fresh decor. Bike and walking path is wonderful and easy access to neighboring restaurants and ABC store. Can watch the sunrise each morning on the lania or the dining table. AC is a plus when humidity is high and need to cool condo down to sleep. The trade winds are nice but it still gets uncomfortable with the humidity so AC is a must. Quiet as it is away from pool, parking lot and highway, you only hear the ocean. Keep in mind these are privately owned and timeshare condos so not all are as well maintained as this unit. These owners have an exceptional unit. Will definately be staying here again. The whole complex is older but well maintained and ideal location.

Manager response: Mahalo nui loa for your review. The AC truly is a plus, especially during the warmer months. We, too, appreciate our housekeeper and the resort grounds staff. They all do a wonderful job keeping everything clean and well maintained. The Kauai County bike and walking path (Ke Ala Hele Makalae) continues to be extended each year. It is well used and appreciated by many of the resort guests of all ages. We are pleased that you enjoyed the unit, its location and amenities, and look forward to your return.
The property was lovely and the condo was fantastic and well stocked. We enjoyed our stay in Kapa'a.

Manager response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the resort, the condo and the historic town of Kapa’a with its many shops, boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. In the past, Kapa’a was home to sugar cane fields and the largest pineapple field on Kauai. A pineapple cannery was located where the Pono Kai Resort now stands. We look forward to the possibility of your return in the future.
A Rare Gem of a Condo Rental

Very well appointed condo with quality furnishings. For those who want to be comfortable and love to prepare meals in, this is the best 1 BR unit on Kauai. Location is excellent and the owner is great to deal with and very responsive. We hope to return and strongly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Kauai. The paved trail right out the lanai is a bonus for walking or bicycle (and skates for some). Kountry Kitchen nearby is excellent for breakfast and lunch and within reasonable walking distance. The Ohana is very close and very good for breakfast and lunch.

Manager response: We are pleased you found the unit comfortable and that you enjoyed our kitchen. Many of our guests are fond of preparing some of their own meals while visiting the island, so we have tried to make the kitchen as “homelike” as possible. Being able to view the ocean while working at the kitchen counter is a definite added benefit. Thank you for your review and we hope that you will be able to return to Kauai and Pono Kai soon.

Manager response: Pono Kai’s location on the east side of Kauai does provide convenient access to the many beaches, attractions and activities around the island. From this central location one can easily visit Ke’e Beach at the end of the road on the north shore, as well as south shore’s Po’ipu and Spouting Horn and also Waimea Canyon and the west shore---and all the sites and adventures in between. We hope that you will return soon to the Garden Island.
Beautiful Sun-risesGuest comment entered by manager
My husband and I were lucky enough to spend eight weeks at Pono Kai C102, early 2013. The unit is beautifully furnished and has a well-stocked kitchen with good quality cookware. Being a corner unit the extra window gives added light and it feels very open. It is also very clean and well looked after. Pono Kai C102 also comes with the most beautiful sun-rises we have ever seen. We are looking forward to our return next year.

Great view of the sunrise from the lanai!

We just returned from our 8 days at Pono Kai and just want you to know how much we enjoyed your well-stocked condo - even down to the martini glasses! Loved the view from the lanai and access right in front of the condo to the beackwalk. Great location for relaxing and enjoying old town Kapaa. We would definitely recommend your condo to family and friends! Aloha, The Van Berkels

Manager response: We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. The beauty and the variety of the sunrises over the ocean at Pono Kai are very memorable experiences. So glad that you enjoyed the condo and the colorful martini glasses! The beach pathway continues to be extended for even greater walking and cycling pleasure. Many of our friends and visitors comment that one of the things that they enjoy the most is relaxing on the lanai, watching the ocean. Thank you for recommending our condo to family and friends and we hope that you, too, will return soon. Mahalo nui loa!
Your condo is very nice and comfortable, my only 3 suggestions are as follows: Time for a new mattress, yours is way to soft, especially for two adults. The bathtub needs new safety strips, so you won't slip as I did coming out of your shower tub. And lastly for those of us who enjoy our TV and sports a bigger TV in your living room, you definitely have room in your cabinet for a bigger screen. I know, who comes to Hawaii to watch TV, but remember you can't sight see all the time. Your unit was very clean and nice furniture adorned it. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home.

Manager response: Mahalo for your review and we are glad that you found the unit very clean and comfortable. We are very grateful to our housekeeper for the job that she does. We are taking into consideration guest comments about the mattress that was purchased new in May 2011 and is labeled as “firm”. Some guests have found it “too soft”, as you did. Other guests have called and asked for the name of the mattress because they liked it so much. We appreciate guest feedback because we want our unit to be as “homelike” as possible and will take all comments into consideration when a new mattress is purchased. The ADA bathtub with the textured bottom and three safety bars was new in May 2012, when the bathroom was remodeled. There is a shower mat and shower chair in the closet. Perhaps it would be more helpful if these items were left in plain view. At the time we purchased the TV (2010) the 26” was the largest that would fit into the cabinet. The selection of products on Kauai is not always as varied as on the mainland. Once again, we sincerely appreciate your review and hope that we will be able to share our home with you again.
Very well equipped condo
Very well equipped condo
We spent a week at this lovely condo. The location was great. We could walk to numerous restaurants when we didn't want to cook. (highly recommend the Eastside, it was fabulous) I was amazed at all the items the condo contained to make your vacation fabulous. Things like beach chairs, fishing poles, and beach towels. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the pool was nice. The only downside is the mattress was not very firm. So if you someone who requires a firm mattress, I wouldn't recommend this condo. The rental management company was great to deal with. It all went very smoothly.

Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our condo. So glad that you enjoyed the unit’s location and amenities. Many visitors to Kapa’a would agree with your recommendation of the Eastside Restaurant! Sorry that the mattress was not comfortable for you. It was purchased new in May 2011 and is classified as a firm mattress. Hopefully, that experience did not take away from the pleasure of your vacation.

About: We bought are first timeshare at Pono Kai 8 years ago and fell in love with the resort and location. We dreamed of spending a major portion of our retirement on Kauai and bought 6 weeks of timeshare over the years. Finally, our real dream came true when we were able to purchase one of the few privately owned units at the resort. We still own 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom and one week in a 1 bedroom with a loft timeshare so we can share our love with friends and family.
This is truly paradise to us. KAUAI..a well maintained resort.....a beautiful condo on the ocean...close to everything we need. We don't even need to drive if we couldn't or didn't want to. What more could you ask for?
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The benefits of Pono Kai C102 include all the favorite activities and places that we, our friends and family enjoy: Smith Family Luau, helicopter tours, snorkeling on the Napali Coast, golf at the many close golf courses, Waimea Canyon, picnics at Lydgate Park, walks along the pedistrian path, sunrises on our lanai, and sunsets on the balcony at the St. Regis, Princeville. Kauai offers many incredible photographic opportunities. This is the perfect central location to explore the entire island. Location..Location...Location
