About Owner

We bought are first timeshare at Pono Kai 20 years ago and fell in love with the resort and location. We dreamed of spending a major portion of our retirement on Kauai and bought 6 weeks of timeshare over the years.

Finally, our real dream came true when we were able to purchase one of the few privately owned units at the resort. We still own 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom and one week in a 1 bedroom with a loft timeshare so we can share our love with friends and family.

Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Owner chose Kapaa

This is truly paradise to us. KAUAI..a well maintained resort.....a beautiful condo on the ocean...close to everything we need. We don't even need to drive if we couldn't or didn't want to. What more could you ask for?

What makes this condo unique

The benefits of Pono Kai C102 include all the favorite activities and places that we, our friends and family enjoy: Smith Family Luau, helicopter tours, snorkeling on the Napali Coast, golf at the many close golf courses, Waimea Canyon, picnics at Lydgate Park, walks along the pedistrian path, sunrises on our lanai, and sunsets on the balcony at the St. Regis, Princeville. Kauai offers many incredible photographic opportunities. This is the perfect central location to explore the entire island. Location..Location...Location

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend eight weeks at Pono Kai C102, early 2013. The unit is beautifully furnished and has a well-stocked kitchen with good quality cookware. Being a corner unit the extra window gives added light and it feels very open. It is also very clean and well looked after.

Pono Kai C102 also comes with the most beautiful sun-rises we have ever seen. We are looking forward to our return next year.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Kauai just last week--stayed there thru August 5th--we loved our Kapa'a get-a-way--to us it was the perfect location to head to the North Shore, South Shore or just tool around in Kapa'a. We packed so much into our stay and being able to come back to Pona Kai and stay here was ideal!! The condo was well furnished, met all of our needs--and having breakfast and coffee overlooking the ocean and sunrise every morning was such a delight. Kathleen was very responsive, even sent us a "what to do while on Kauai"--emailed me back promptly with every question--she is a very responsive host. The bike path runs in front of the property and Kapa'a Old Town is walking distance to lots of shops, food trucks and restaurants..I loved the vibe of Kapa' much more my style than the South Shore--and you will not find a better ocean view for this price and this location. This was our first visit to the island and we will be back and we will stay here again!!!! Oh one more thing--the staff at Pono Kai were so helpful too, very friendly, answered our questions, gave us excellent tips...I am still smiling such a big smile from our trip!!! Thanks Kathleen!!!!

Owner's Response: One does not easily forget their first trip to the beautiful Garden Island! Glad that your stay was so memorable. Kapa’a, on the east side, is a wonderful location for guests who wish to tour the various areas of the island. Many guests have remarked that the Pono Kai staff do exemplify the “aloha spirit”. Also, the front desk staff is available 24 hours a day. For guests who love to hike, check out online, Na Ala Hele Trails and Access. It is a resource developed by the state Department of Land and Natural Resources. It includes information about 35 of Kauai’s trails. For those who are visiting and may need WiFi along the way, Hawaii’s Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs has established WiFi access points at public parks, civic and community centers, and other public open areas. These designated locations offer 1 hour of free WiFi service per device per day. On Kauai, there are locations in Kapa’a, Lihue, Koloa, Waimea and Hanalei.

Owner's Response: (CORRECTED VERSION) For those who enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving, charter tours along the breathtaking Na Pali Coast anchor during the excursions allowing passengers to snorkel, scuba dive and see the schools of colorful fish, dolphins and Hawaiian monk seals. Depending on the weather and ocean conditions, Tunnels Beach, during the summer, has great near-shore snorkeling and off-shore scuba diving. On the south shore, Po’ipu Beach can be fantastic for snorkeling. Lifeguards, showers, picnic tables pavilions, and playgrounds make this an ideal family beach.

Great condo

Great condo, well equipped and very clean. Great price. The corner, ground floor unit was perfect.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. Being on the ground floor with the expanse of lawn in front of the lanai enhances the feeling of openness and proximity to the ocean. For visitors who like to plan their trip prior to their arrival, Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) has launched the free “GoHawaii” mobile app. It provides, in several different languages, island-by-island sights/attractions, events, travel tips and weather information.

Owner's Response: Kapa’a is a great location on the island. Kauai’s The Garden Island reported that in April, Kapa’a was listed by TripAdvisor as one of the top 10 travel destinations for 2018. Kapa’a means “solid” in Hawaiian and it is located at the base of Nounou Mountain (the Sleeping Giant). It is a charming town with many sites and activities in walking distance from Pono Kai Resort.

Owner's Response: Having the ocean so close to the condo is truly terrific. Many guests remark on how they enjoy the ever changing view from the lanai throughout the day, especially the action of the ocean waves and various cloud formations. Also, in front of the condo is the Kauai County bike and walking path (Ke Ala Hele Makalae). It is Hawaiian for “The Path that Goes by the Coast”. The path eventually will follow the eastern shoreline for 17 miles from Nawiliwili to Anahola. It is enjoyed by all ages for walking, biking, photo taking, conversation, etc. So glad the you enjoyed your time at Pono Kai and we look forward to your return.
