Oceanfront Condo on second floor with amazing view. Beach is just 100 feet from unit. Recently remodeled kitchen and bathrooms.
This unit is VERY well stocked. We always rent VRBO and this unit was by far stocked better than any unit we have ever stayed at. The beach chairs were a lifesaver and the snorkel and pool gear a huge plus! We cooked the mojority of our meals in the unit and it had everything we needed! The BBQ grill just to the west of the unit is the best on the property. The view is amazing and the sunrises from the lanai (or master bedroom) are beautiful. There is nothing like falling asleep and waking up to the ocean! The only drawback were the mattresses and pillows. They definitely need to replace them all - flat, hard pillows and mattresses that you could feel the springs. Everyone in our family woke up sore (and our age doesn't justify that)! The wifi was a little slow, but there were options to purchase faster speeds. Kind of lame, so we just dealt with the slow wifi and/or used data. The living room furniture and the bedding is different than the pictures - definitely better than expected. Overall, it was a great stay....but I'm really looking forward to a good night sleep in my bed on my quality mattress! This would have been a 5 star review with more comfortable beds and pillows.
From the moment we pulled into the resort we knew this place was going to be wonderful!! As soon as we walked into the condo my family and I were speechless!! The ocean was literally right in front of our condo it was beautiful to walk in and see the big blue ocean from every room! The condo was impeccably very clean it was fully stocked. I think the owner should update his pictures because The bedding the rug all the furniture look brand-new even the comforters and towels. There were so many barbecue grills spread throughout the property but we always use the one that was closest to the unit it was nice to barbecue right in front of the beach. Staying in this condo made our vacation even better! I hope I can come back and stay in this unit thank you Phil!! We were walking distance to so many shops and places to eat and it was a very nice and safe area.
This unit was fabulous! The kitchen had a mini rice maker and an electric kettle as well as most anything else you could want. The view from the living room, Master bedroom, and lani is amazing. We loved the location with the walking/bike path right outside the building. The grounds of the Pono Kai were very well kept. The BBQ next to our building had the best view around. We look forward to returning.
The unit was very spacious and the view was beautiful, it was nice to sit on the sofa and watch sunrise over the ocean. The mattresses are on the soft side and seemed a little worn. There is no air conditioning, which means you need to leave the windows open. Kapaa can get windy, so it was very loud at night and hard to sleep. The windows in the master sounded like the wind rushing through a haunted house. Open windows also means you can easily hear the roosters at every sunrise.
The kitchen was well stocked, the dining table seats 6 easily
If they added air conditioning and changed the mattresses this would be a 5 star review
Kapaa is centrally located, which is nice, but it is a 30 minute drive to the best beaches. The beach outside the unit was not swimmable and there was trash in the water.
It is a short walk to downtown Kapaa where there are several restaurants. The Olympic cafe was the best value we found and the food was decent but not spectacular.
Great location on the Coconut Coast with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Easy access from the airport and ample parking at the Pono Kai makes it a great destination for all. I can't comment on the amenities because, other than the laundry rooms, we did not use them. I can tell you that the Pono Kai is on the ocean and the design makes easy access to the ocean. Swim beaches are everywhere and downtown Kapaa has a great vibe to it. If you are here the 1st Saturday of the months then you are in for a treat.
The condo was spacious and absorbed five people easily. Large rooms and double sink bathrooms work well for for the morning rush. Of all the places I have stayed.in Hawaii, Phil's was the most stocked with toys and daily necessities.
So here is bad: the women complained about the place as being outdated but everything worked, so the men were happy. The Internet was spotty, so the kids were not happy. My take on the Internet is I have yet to stay in Hawaii (this was number 4) where the Internet works properly. It's probably a Hawaiian thing. If you are on the Internet then you should be looking for your next adventure and not playing games.
Would I recommend this to someone? Most definitely and with out reservation. This was the best location (ocean view)we have ever stayed in. Everything is right there. Yes it's paradise.
The view and location are perfect. We've stayed at the Pono Kai several times and love the grounds, location and the town of Kapaa. The beds and furnishings in our unit were very comfortable and having an end unit is a bonus. I was a little worried about not having air conditioning but we did not need it. In fact, we could use our blankets. Loved listening to the sounds of the waves at night. I would definitely recommend this place (and already have) and will return.
