About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

ALOHA! Long to get away from the hustle and bustle? Are you ready to RELAX? Then welcome to Paradise! If you love Kauai like we do, you'll love staying in our beachfront condo in Kapaa. We're on the third (top) floor (with elevator) in a corner unit with unobstructed views north south and east. Gorgeous sunrises from our lanai (balcony) and views of the beautiful mile-long sandy beach, with its walking, jogging, bicycle trail.

The Pono Kai Resort is located right in the quaint town of Kapaa. You are walking distance from many stores and restaurants, yet are shielded from road and traffic noise by fifteen acres and several other buildings in the complex. All you'll hear in our condo are the mesmerizing sounds of the ocean and the trade winds breezing through the palm trees.

Why Gary & Barbara Stephens, HI Tax ID TA-123-262-5664-01 chose Coconut Coast

Kapaa is centrally located with a 40 minute drive north to the end of the road, and another 40-minute drive to Poipu area or an hour's drive to the West end of the road at Polihale.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, quiet, quiet. The sound of the surf and the trade winds rustling through the palm trees instantly soothes jangled nerves, and puts us in a state of wonderful relaxation.

Beautiful balcony views. No need for a.c. there was a constant cooling breeze day and night. My mom and I went for girl time and my birthday. Loved it and will return again.

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the best equipped I have ever stayed in. From beach chairs to Tupperware and the Ninja blender-this place has everything you need! Lovely view from the lanai of this corner unit. The resort was great for all ages. We enjoyed the pool as well as shuffleboard and croquet. Staff at the front desk were very helpful with everything even though this was a private rental. Resort has a hospitality room with a shower and storage area which came in handy after check out time.

Look forward to returning to unit D308 at the Pono zzz Kai in the years to come.

Marvelous Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in the wonderful, corner, top floor condo. The location is perfect for us as the walking, biking trail is right out front, and the town of Kapaa just a short walk away. The condo has everything you need and the owners are so helpful in giving recommendations and advice. Gary always calls the first night just to make sure all is well. We have stayed in other condos at the Pono Kai, but this is by far our favorite. You can't go wrong should you decide to stay in Kapaa. Aloha.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location in Kapaa. Unit was clean, well equipped and had a nice view of ocean. The elevator was very useful for taking luggage to and from unit and when using the laundry facilities on the ground level. The shops, restaurants, and coffee shops were within easy walking distance. A long shoreline walking/biking trail is just out the door.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Diane and I enjoyed being return guests in D308. It is a great combination of location and price. I especially like having only a short walk to Kapaa. Breakfast at Ono Ono and maybe a shave ice later. Other good restaurants are close. I find that if you have a "Hawaii Revealed" book it is best to have a recent one because restaurants come and go. Site seeing remains the same and we hit them all both North and South.

As a frustrated Ukulele player, the Komora uke store is close and on Tuesday mornings I spent an hour at the Kapaa rec center (within walking distance) in a uke class with Ernie. Great fun. Being Lutheran we enjoy going to Lihue Lutheran (only Luth. church on the island). Both Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday as well as aThursday morning making PB and J sandwiches (400) for the Boys and Girls clubs.

The unit has everything needed for a nice stay. Good CD player so I went across the street to the Thrift store for some additions (cheap). We also sampled the TV with the old movie selections. The instructions on usage in the owner manual helped. Might remind tenants that the CD player holds five. The upgraded kitchen adds a lot.

Pono Kai itself is very inviting. Besides the pool and exercise room, the Herb garden (with samples) and the miniature golf course at ocean side were nice touches. Make sure you go to the welcome breakfast. We did and won a half priced airplane flight over the island. A painless way to see Na Pali. We also used the seaside path for our morning walk.

P.S. to Gary - thanks for working out an additional nights stay.

Good bang for the buck

  • 4 of 5

Loved being top floor corner unit with the side window and no one walking over us. This provided lots of light and extended beach and water views. Sound does travel between floors a little so being on top was the best. Grounds and location is beautiful. You can't really hear the waves at night from the back bedroom, but you can get that experience from a surprisingly comfortable sofa bed in the living room. Road noise is minimal in the back bedroom, the most noise you will hear is from the roosters which is fairly constant throughout the night (seems they just don't crow at sunrise) but you will probably get this no matter where you stay on the island as they are literally everywhere.

Gary was very easy to deal with and instructions and check in was smooth as can be. The condo is a little dated but is very functional, comfortable and clean. The beach out front is swimmable but we spent most of our time at Hanalei Bay bodyboarding and exploring the north. We did Wailea Canyon on a clear day and highly recommend that.

Condo was well stocked with kitchen gadgets and beach stuff. All and all it was good value and we hope to be back soon!
