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."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My husband and I stayed in D402 and absolutely loved it. Very clean and had a gorgeous view of pool area & ocean. The other part that I wanted to give kudos to the management is for allowing us to stay a little later on our last day due to our flight being later in the afternoon. Very accommodating. I would highly recommend D402 and if had opportunity to go back to Kauai, would stay again. Another item of mention was convenience to grocery store & coffee shops! Thanks D402 for a fantastic time!!"

"A perfect place to relax and unwind. The unit is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Everything to make your stay enjoyable has been thought of. The furniture on the lanai are so comfortable, the footstools add a nice touch. We spent hours sitting on the lanai, watching the ocean, the fishing boats come and go, and enjoying the pleasant trade winds. The barbeque is located close enough to the unit, that it was fun to grill out almost daily. We will be back next year."

"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"
