Kapaa condo description

Magnificent sunrises, sandy beaches, and whale-watching are just a few steps outside the lanai door of this roomy and inviting corner floor unit. Step inside and you'll feel like you are visiting a friend in the islands. A short stroll away you can rent a beach cruiser bike, shop quaint markets and stores, or dine in a variety of great restaurants in the charming old town of Kapaa. Or just relax on the condo's lanai and take in the majesty of the surf right in front of you.

When you're done relaxing there is a variety of activities to be found throughout the lush gardens of Pono Kai Resort and within a short drive around the island. Numerous golf and tennis resorts are within easy reach of Kapaa, as are all the natural wonders of the 'Garden Island.'

The unit itself offers you a beautifully decorated and comfortable place to sleep 4 people in 2 large bedrooms; both furnished with king-size beds. There is no sleeper-sofa in the unit, but several futons are usable for children. The kitchen is appointed for people who like to cook, and wifi is free.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: I grew up in Santa Cruz, and spent at least a week every summer on one of the Islands (Usually Kauai) Dad Moved to Kilauea full time in 2000 and I followed him I few years later in 2004. I work in Oahu for Hawaiian Airlines so I split most of my time between Oahu and Kauai. The plan is to take advantage of empty blocks in the rental to vacation in the condo with friends from Oahu and Kauai. I love to travel but I also would not trade calling Hawaii home for anywhere.

              Why the Owner Chose Kapaa:
              I love this property because it is so central to Restaurants , cafes, bars, and shopping in Old town Kapaa, and it's right on the water. Waking up to the sunrise from the master bedroom or the living room never gets old. The relatively new bike/walking path is also a huge draw for me. I love to run in the mornings or grab and bike and go for a long ride along the water away from all the road traffic.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              This condo in Pono Kai is really the best of all worlds. The Condo itself is a corner unit which not only the most roomy in the complex, but also have windows on three sides. Its a ground floor unit which allows you to walk right outside your sliding doors past your lanai to the water and bike path. Being on the ground floor makes your lanai extent into the lawn. The Pono Kai resort is beautifully landscaped and has many activities peppered through out. Parking is convenient and close but unless you are going sightseeing around the island you could spend your whole vacation in and around the resort. Also the town of Kapaa has many restaurants and food shopping but location on the island is almost half way between the west side and the end of the road on the north shore.
