"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 was our third year is this cozy, comfortable home by the beach. It feels just like home to us now. We have everything we need and are only a phone call away from help, suggestions, ideas for fun or whatever and the view is world class of a perfect beach and ocean. We are so close to everything we need and have so many favorite places now that finding fun or relaxation is easy. Perfect launching pad for any vacation."

"Great view for a great price. Kauai is a beautiful place and staying centrally located in kapaa at the islander allowed for easy access to see the island. The room was in good condition and just the right size. Definitely recommend."
