Why Will and Joan Nord chose Kapaa

We fell in love with its small town feel and the sound of the ocean waves caressing us as we relax in our living room or on the lanai. We love the relaxed, beautiful 12 acre setting and we wanted to choose quieter, cleaner, greener Kauai after visits to Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. We share the condominium with family and friends as well as folks looking for a Hawaiian getaway place to rent. We have a number of repeat renters who have also found our little gem to be most relaxing, with a fantastic location and amenities and unbelievable views and sunsets (and sunrises if you awaken early enough :-)

What makes this condo unique

Kapaa is a friendly town with unlimited activities for everyone. From great shopping to sunshine, we have it. Grab a cup of coffee and homemade bread or macadamia nut sweet rolls at the local bakery. Enjoy shaved ice and an open air markets where locals shop for crafts, fresh local produce and sweets. Take a quiet walk along the beach or enjoy the ammenities of the condominium association or head out to the ocean to swim, surf or snorkel. Take an outing, golf, hike, four wheel, scuba, kayak, hula, sail, rest and then play again! Or stay home and BBQ the fresh catch of the day.

Great Condo, will return!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great condo. It's right on the beach with a million $ view. The condo had everything we needed. We chose a condo to keep costs down (we have 3 young boys who are picky eaters so a kitchen is a must).

We also were traveling in the early spring so the weather can be hit/miss on Kauai at this time if year. This allowed us not to commit to one side of the island. During our stay, we got better weather in the North shore that the south shore (surprisingly!).

We stopped at Wal Mart in Lihue before going to the condo to buy some basic foods. Glad we didn't buy much else as the unit was more than well equipped.

Upon arrival, the unit was as advertised. Great location located on the east coast so you can go either way on the island in less than about an hour. A short walk to shops and restaurants in Kapaa. The facility is very well manicured and has several bbqs and other amenities. As others have mentioned, the is no AC, but I think I counted 7 fans in the unit. We didn't have any issues with heat as the evening breezes cooled the unit down in less than 10 minutes after we returned from our daily outings. We stayed in March so we didn't have the summer heat, but on the hotter days of our stay, the place was comfortable once we opened the patio door facing the ocean.

The owners were very accommodating regarding our stay and seem like genuinely nice people. They could charge a lot more for the unit if they wanted to.

My only "knock" is it seems like the pool at the location was an after thought. Don't get me wrong, it's clean and the kids and us enjoyed the heck out of it. We met some great people at the pool and had no issues, it just seems that the facility could really set itself apart from other options with a better pool. Again, if nothing changed, we would stay here in a heartbeat. There is nothing wrong with the pool, but it's unremarkable.

Again, great view, the facility/grounds are great, location is central to both sides, the owners are fantastic and have provided everything a family could need to enjoy their stay. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great family vacation. If we return to Kapaa, we will rent this unit.

Everything you might want is there.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being so close to the ocean. One of the best places to experience what we look for in Kauai is on your lanai or in the living room with the slider open to hear the waves. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely island home!

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo unit. We have stayed in several other units at the Pono Kai, all of which were fine, but this is our favorite and our first choice when we visit Kauai. You just can't beat the view from the lanai of this condo!

The unit lacks air conditioning but it is very seldom needed because of the trade winds which keeps the condo comfortable. Also, the condo doesn't have internet service but you can go to the lobby of the resort to get it free if you need or want.

We rate it 5 stars but others who are more particular might rate it 4 stars. However, no matter what rating it gets it's a great value for the price, location, amenities and of course the view!

Very nice resort.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice resort. The unit we had was great. Grounds are well kept. The pool is a little small for the number of units here. This was our third stay at this resort and second time renting from this owner. We will be back next year.
