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."

"An excellent trip. Accommodations are very nice, clean and in good condition. The view is amazing. It is quiet, friendly and calm. The ocean is absolutely incredible out front. My 6 year old and I played in the surf for hours each day. Very conveniently located and central, yet very secluded. I would highly recommend this place I hope to go again."

"The Healeys' condo was the best place we stayed in our island-hopping vacation. The Healeys' communication was great. The room: Comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchenette, and most importantly a/c! Know that you'll need to bring luggage up stairs. Location is great, just 6.5 miles from the Lihue airport, and walking to eats and drinks at Coconut Marketplace and to fine dining at Hukilau Lanai in next-door Kauai Coast Resort. However, don't miss driving to Kapaa for dining, especially Kountry Kitchen's breakfast.
The Aston Islander on the Beach is nicely landscaped. Parking can be an issue during busy times. The beach is a little rough; we didn't use it. The outside bar was nice for a drink, but a little pricey. The outdoor pool was popular. They also have a barbecue area that was in use whenever we went by.
Don and Christina's condo is a great place to relax and enjoy Kauai."

"We had a fantastic time on the island. This unit is gorgeous and extremely clean. The location on the island makes it very easy to access the north and south areas on the island. We enjoyed having a few restaurants within walking distance. Vadim was an absolute pleasure to deal with."
