Good location, nice view, good value
"My wife and I first stayed in this unit back in 2008. Since then we've stayed in 4 different units at the Pono Kai Resort over the years and this unit is still one of our favorites. The location & view are very nice even though it's not oceanfront. The unit is set back from the oceanfront walkway as you can see from the picture from the unit's lanai. If walkers, joggers & bikers looking into your unit bothers you this unit would be perfect for you.
The unit is showing a little age and could use some updating but it's comfortable and well equip. Also, it has chairs for the beach, beach umbrella, beach towels, large cooler, noodles for floating & snorkeling equipment for you to use.
One thing that did bother us on this stay was a musty smell when we entered the unit but it went away once the doors to the lanai were opened letting in the fresh air and the cool the breeze. The unit doesn't have air conditioning and generally it not needed except on the rare occasions when the trade winds aren't blowing.
Kapa'a is a great location as home base for visiting the rest of the island. Traffic can be a little bit of a hassle when leaving the Pono Kai Resort but not enough for us to consider staying elsewhere. Nice beaches are a short drive away and you can be in Hanalei in about 45 minute and Ke'e Beach in about another 20 minutes. In the other direction it's about a 45 minute drive to Po'ipu Beach and an hour to the road leading up to Waimea Canyon.
Bottom line....This unit at the Pono Kai Resort is one of our first choices when we come to Kauai. It's a nice unit in good condition with a nice view making it a good value for the money."

"This condo is perfect for a Hawaiian getaway! It is in a stunning location. Beautiful oceanfront, wonderful walking paths and beaches, and gorgeous view. You will be tempted to never leave the condo. Recently remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, comfortable bed, wonderful lani - it has everything. Nearby restaurants and shopping as well."

"Larry, thanks so much for sharing your place in paradise with me for a week. This is a privately-owned two queen bed room in the Aston Islander at the Beach Hotel, located on the beach in Kapaa. The beach is gorgeous, clean golden sand, beautiful water. Wonderful for wading in the small breakers; rocky immediately offshore, so good place to snorkel rather than body surf. The room has a nice lanai with a slight ocean view beyond the garden. This rental is great for guests seeking a quality hotel room and planning to not cook; there is a microwave and mini-fridge and some kitchen place settings for snacks. Clean, comfortable, and well-located. A nice and better value alternative to the next door Courtyard Marriott."

"Ich war schon oft auf Kauai, aber so schön war es noch nirgends. 35 Schritte zum Strand, herrlicher Sonnenaufgang, dann Frühstück auf dem Balkon mit Blick aufs Meer. Die Wohnung ist top gepflegt und hat uns wirklich alles geboten, waswiir brauchten. Selbstverpflegung war kein Problem, aber schöner war es noch, die tollen Restaurants in umittelbarer Nähe zu testen. Trotz direkter Strandlage liegt die Wohnung verkehrsgünstig, Hanalei, Kalalau Trail und Waimea Canyon sind in angemessener Zeit mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Dazu ist es auch noch völlig ruhig. Hoffentlich können wir bald einmal wiederkommen! Birgit und Christiane"
