About Dawn

Jeri, Lou, Lisa, and Dawn:

The VRKauai crew is just that, a crew. We all met on Kauai paddling with the Kawaikini Canoe Club. OC-6 is alive and well. Outrigger canoes, with 6 seats, is a competitive sport dear to the residents of Kauai. We have a great time on the water so we decided to team up off the water also.

We manage these units for the owners on Kauai and enjoy every minute of providing them this service.

Each of us has lived here long enough to be able to share our island knowledge and adventures on Kauai and love doing just that. Between us we're sure we can help with any request for activities, great views, and much adventure. Well, everyone is anxious to tell about their adventures on Kauai... but Lou.... well, we won't go there. She's not allowed to tell all of her stories. We look forward to meeting each and every one of our guests and look forward to hearing from you.

Dawn purchased this condo in 2010

Why Dawn chose Coconut Coast

This is a privately owned property managed by us for short term rentals.

Looks better in the pics than it really is

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed at this resort on a number of previous occasions in both owner owned units and resort owned units. Each of those previous experiences were super positive. This unit is privately owned. It was remodeled a few years ago and has some nice features such as kitchen and bathroom layout and functionality. Of course ocean front is always a plus! However, the unit is suffering from a lack of attention to detail that is eroding its desirability. Upon arrival, we found our bare feet turning black because the tile floors had not been adequately cleaned. Kitchen knives were laid out nicely but dull as can be. The rubber mat in the shower/tub was slightly dirty on the top side and moldy underneath. Yuck. The chaise lounge on the lanai was rusty and broken with the supporting canvas material torn and rather "oily" from previous use. It took a day & a half to get a cleaning crew in to clean the floors and 3 days to replace the lounger with a much used version rather than a new one. Overall, this unit is not keeping pace with the cleanliness, appearance and comfort of the units around it. This is really too bad since small expenditures on upgrades and replacements from time to time would keep it as good as any other unit. And of course, better cleaning and faster responses to needs are necessary. Rectify these completely doable items and this would be a great place to stay. Neglecting these needed improvements would preclude us, sad to say, from staying there again.

Bed too small

  • 3 of 5

GREAT PLACE! Lovely location The good It was right by the ocean path & lots of neat stuff in the apartment to take advantage of the beach! The bad is it was right by the ocean path (people waking by) and had a bed that was too small for two adults. Paha'a was a neat little town. Dear owner, take out one end table in the bedroom and put in a larger bed with a couple more pillows. All in all we quickly got used to the people and soon spent early evenings watching the passers by.

Amazing condo for great value!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit! There is so much more than the pictures and the description describe. You are literally at the beach. Gorgeous sunrises on the ocean every morning. It is in a great central location. We took advantage of the common BBQ grills of which there are plenty and I highly recommend The Fish Express for local fish market. The swordfish is incredible! This condo also was well stocked with everything you need for a day at the beach. U.S. Diver snorkel gear. Great boogie boards, beach towels and beach chairs. Whales were seen right off the water and easy, comfortable bonfires at night. Excellent pool and hot tub too! Dawn was great to work with and we will certainly stay here again! One of the best! Thank you for the perfect condo!

Magnificent sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for the month of January in this unit. It was very clean and comfortable and I felt very safe there traveling alone. This is an oceanfront unit and you can watch the beautiful Kauai sunrise from the lanai or even sitting on your living room sofa if it's too chilly to go outside! I rarely ate out so the modern and well equipped kitchen was perfect for me. The bicycle/walking path out front is very convenient. I was able to walk north to the library and south to the grocery store and post office. The traffic can be bad in Kapaa so it is nice to have an alternative to driving. Also the bus can take you most anywhere on the island from here. Pono Kai is in the middle of Kapaa so it's a very easy walk to lots of restaurants and shops. There is a nice pool and hot tub and lots of activities in the resort. Best of all there is a little beach right in front that I visited every day. Parking was always easy. There are ceiling fans in both rooms so I never needed the AC. I especially liked the in room safe which I used a lot since the house we were renting before I stayed here was robbed during the night! The management, Island Rentals, was very responsive and helpful.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Perfect view of the ocean and so close to shops and restaurants, that you could easily walk! Great bike rental right next door and right in the middle of the island, so going north or south was easy. The resort was kept up really well and had all sorts of fun things to do on sight. Well kept pool and hot tub.

The condo had extra beach chairs, sunbathing mats, umbrellas and beach towels and all of our interactions with Dawn were wonderful! Thank you so much for such a wonderful place! We WILL be back again!
