  • "Magical" 10 out of 10

    "This was our first trip to Kauai and we booked with Mary unit 158. The unit was way nicer then the pictures and much closer to the beach then what shows in the pictures. The linens was like staying in a 5 star resort. The unit was PERFECT. So many great extras that just made our vacation that much enjoyable. We were able to walk to resturants, walk to town, and just had a Magical time. We really lucked out because some resorts are so far away from a store, or if you just want to sit and have a Mai Tai. But Marys place was actually perfect and well exceeded our needs. If you want a great bargin or bang for your buck you cant get any better then here. The unit size was perfect, had a large spacious bathroom so my husband and I could both be getting ready for dinner. We used the BBQ every other night. There is a little freezer in addition to the refrigerator. The unit has small coolers, beach/lounge chairs, and a boogie board. Mary put a lot of extra work to ensure we were comfortable which was very much appreciated. We enjoyed going to Hula girl for breakfast, sat at the counter and had great mimosa's. One morning we got up to watch the sunrise and huge monk seal was sleeping on the beach in front our unit. I think what I enjoyed most about this place was the location and all the access to everywhere on island and from the unit. There is a great ocean breeze, and after staying on the ground floor I do not think I would ever want to stay on a second or third. We loved how the lawn and sand was all part of our Lanai, Made it feel very spacious and we loved not having to hall our things up and down the steps. When it rains it can be slippery if you have to take the stairs. At night there was security that walked the property so we always felt very safe. Its just a very nice, quiet, safe, place to stay. We are definately going to come back to stay but next time we will stay longer. Sam"

  • Beautiful View! Would actually give 4.5 stars; enjoyed our time here!

    "If you are looking for a place to stay in Kauai that is centrally located, truly oceanfront (with wonderful "beach music"/wave sounds), is comfortable but not opulent, is housed in a small, low key, beautifully landscaped complex, and is reasonably priced, then this small studio condo may be for you. This ground floor unit. It has a beautiful view while seated on the lanai or from just inside the glass slider door; one benefit of having a ground floor unit (besides no stairs if that is important to you) is you can pull your chaise lounge right out onto the grass in front of the unit! This small studio has everything you need for a nice, quiet time for 1-2 people. There are a few imperfections (the bed could be a bit more comfortable; it is 2 twins held together to form a king, bathroom is small but very cute & modern, kitchen area is a bit tight for two people to try to prepare dinner at the same time, & on site laundry facilities have limited hours) but they are NOT enough to be off-putting. This unit was spotlessly clean, decorated nicely, very well provisioned kitchen with new/clean pots/pans, etc. There is a small, wall mounted flat screen t.v., cable, & DVD player & in room safe. The owners have thoughtfully provided a few beach chairs, cooler, etc., & the management of the complex provides beach towels. Housekeeping comes by Mon/Wed/Fri to take the garbage out and exchange bath towels. If you are staying a week or longer they will change your bed linens mid-week. What I loved the most about the units @ KS, is the bed is located on the ocean side of the building, just inside the glass lanai door. Why is this important? I have stayed in many condos in Kauai over the years; many of them were larger but had the bedroom placed towards the highway side of the building. That may be a better arrangement if you desire a more formal living/dining arrangement, have guests over, or require a sleeper sofa, but you also hear more ROAD noise this way instead of the tranquil "beach music"! You will hear some road noise even in the oceanfront units at this complex, but you primarily hear the ocean at night & will awaken to sunrise right over the ocean right outside your door, and glimpses of sea turtles in the bay! For 1-2 adults who don't mind a small kitchen/dining area, this is a wonderful place!! You could live comfortably here without a car for a week or so (many restaurants & shops within walking distance) if you don't need to go sightseeing."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "This condo was comfortable, clean and had a beautiful view of the pool. The kitchen made me feel right at home. Kapaa is a great place to stay, lots of great food and everything is in walking distance. We also enjoyed the bike path that runs along the ocean, right by the condo. Our favorite part was going to the raffle they hold in the pool area because we won a Captain Andy's boat ride along the Napali Coast, it was breathtaking, and even saw dolphins and whales. I really recommend this condo and I will be coming back next year!"

  • Beautiful Condo/Great Location

    "First, we love, love, love Kauai! Our favorite of all the Hawaiian islands. We recently spent a week at the Pono Kai for a family vacation - Our family of 15 stayed in five different condos. ( We determined ours was the best) . Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and playing on the grass right outside one of the 2-bedroom units we rented. Craig was the perfect host, letting us know his favorite beaches, restaurants, etc. He stayed in touch with us on a regular basis prior to our stay. The unit was beautifully decorated, immaculate, and the kitchen well equipped. We liked being very close to the parking area, having convenient access to the elevator and laundry facilities. The only disappointment was the slow internet connection, but we needed to remind ourselves that it was good to get away from the fast-paced life we have on the mainland and not being able to connect immediately to our e-mails was a "good thing". Thanks, Craig, for your wonderful hospitality. When we return to the beautiful island of Kauai, we will most certainly enjoy staying in your unit again."

Kapaa Travel Tips

Kapaa Condos in the Striking Setting of the North Shore

The striking setting of the North Shore of Kauai, in the Hawaiian Islands, is great for independent travelers looking for a dramatic destination. Kapaa condos are properties available direct-from-owners and are the ideal choices for those seeking to vacation in this beautiful area. A Kauai lodging choice in this region is where mountains raise up from the sparkling blue ocean and lush valleys hide small communities, living much the way they have for centuries. It is just like stepping back in time. For those looking to step into somewhere extraordinary, choose Kapaa resorts.

Kapaa Condos near Limahuli Gardens

Nearby to Kapaa resorts is the beautiful Limahuli Gardens, a tropical paradise with ocean views and a variety of caves to explore. Kapaa condos are perfect to visit the Napali Coast, which offers 17 miles of breathtaking scenery through beautiful valleys as well as 4,000-foot cliffs. Here, visitors to a Kauai lodging option can visit a variety of waterfalls and explore the sea caves along the route. Visitors here need to be fairly fit as the area is not accessible by car. It is a challenge but one worth taking.

Kapaa Resorts Are Where Quaint, Traditional Hawaiian Towns Await

Throughout the area surrounding Kapaa condos are quaint, traditional towns where a local welcome is assured. Bird-watchers will find an array of migratory birds and sea birds to spot. If you are lucky, you may spot the Nene Goose, Hawaii’s state bird. Nature-lovers staying in Kapaa resorts can sit on the cliffs and watch the Humpback whales feeding, as well as the dolphins and Hawaiian monk seals at play. A Kauai lodging choice makes an ideal destination for nature-lovers.

Kauai Lodging Is Ideal for Families

Visitors to Kapaa condos who wish to travel slightly further out should head east to the "Coconut Coast." Set among the coconut trees is Opaekaa Falls, a scenic delight and photographer's dream. Here, those staying in a Kauai lodging choice will find Lydgate Park with its famous lava rock pools where children can spend their time hunting for a host of sea life in the pools. The water is deep enough for novice snorkelers. You will find more than enough around Kapaa resorts to occupy you during your Hawaiian vacation.
