About the property

Great For Couples And Families!

This newly remodeled ground floor oceanfront unit has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. A lanai that is steps to the beach. New flooring throughout, new bathrooms and granite counters. The master suite has a king size bed and the 2nd bedroom is masterfully decorated with a queen-sized bed. The living room has a queen sofa sleeper so this unit fits 6 people comfortably! Enjoy cooking in a fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances. If your plans include multiple condos, please see our one bedroom unit with an unobstructed ocean view, also located in this Pono Kai resort, at VRBO Listing #638842.

Located in the heart of Kapaa town, Pono Kai Resort is walking distance to shops, restaurants and groceries! The resort's amenities include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, 2 saunas, a workout studio, shuffleboard, putting greens, concierge services and more!

Our condo has an unobstructed view of the ocean with flow through ocean breezes. Each room has a 52" ceiling fan. The large, noisy AC units are installed on the lanais, and spoil the serenity, which is why we do not have AC!

Numerous beaches within a 10-15 minute drive from this unit! Only 20 minutes away to the beautiful Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, 35 minutes to the beautiful Hanalei Bay both on the northshore. If you want to hit the sunny side of the island, its only a 45 minute (or less) drive to the south!

This unit is great for couples and families. All inquiries are promptly answered by the owner. We look forward to hearing from you. Mahalo.

About John Strizver

This condo was purchased by my Dad as a place he could gather his family to make those memories that last a lifetime and beyond. My Dad was very instumental in making the Pono Kai into the destination it is today. He served on the Board of Directors, and his contributions are remembered by the Association with a palm tree dedicated to his memory on the lanai side of the F building. TA-1909354496-01; GE-1909354496-01

My family has built our own memories in Kauai using the Pono Kai as our home. Our sons are now making their own trips, taking friends that need to experience what Kauai has to offer.

John Strizver purchased this condo in 1986

Fine, comfortable condo on the beach

Pono Kai Resort B101

My family of four adults spent our Christmas holiday in Kapa'a, Kauai at this wonderful Pono Kai resort property. It was the perfect fit with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a living room with gigantic glass slider looking onto the beach, an adequately stocked kitchen and small eating area. The mattresses were comfortable, a big plus! On arrival, I reported to the telephonic check-in person that the entry light in the master bedroom was out. After waiting a couple of days with no response I called the listed maintenance phone number to report two lights were out and the service response was within a couple of hours! Excellent service.

The location of the resort property was excellent. Within 10 miles of Lihue town and airport, midway between Princeville and Poipu, and a couple minutes walk to Kapa'a town. Many stores and shops, including a Safeway, a Big Save and Foodland were within a few minutes drive or a 15 minute walk. The coast walk is just outside the back door of this condo.

If you are a light sleeper or have trouble with loud sounds then you should know that you can clearly hear the upstairs neighbors walking around. Using earplugs solves the problem.

The owner, Jerry, was very responsive and was happy to give me some activity recommendations. Because we arrived around 10PM, Jerry made arrangements so that our arrival to the condo was easy and flawless. Thank you Jerry!

I would recommend this property for your vacation stay in Kauai. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Clean, roomy, well decorated. Both bedrooms bright and airy with 2 sets of windows and extra fans.

  • 5 of 5

This unit has extras for beach time, no need to rent gear. Pictures are spot on. Pono Kai is nicely kept, located right on the water and only a bock to town. The grounds have swimming pool and hot tub;although they could use more deck chairs as it's a popular place. Also fun areas: croquet, bocce, putting. 2 weeks went too fast and already want to go back. Would rent this unit again in a heartbeat!

Great location by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This condo totally lived up to my family of four's expectations. Everything was nicely updated and comfortable but the pictures just can't do justice to the breathtaking view from the patio, living room, and master bedroom. We watched a beautiful sunrise to the added sound of roosters crowing each morning and we loved being able to walk out anytime to be near the ocean or go for a swim. The condo complex was very family-oriented, safe, and clean. The concierge helped us book a few outings. We loved renting kayaks to paddle down the river and then hike to the waterfall. The town of Kapaa was practically next door to the condo complex where we enjoyed doing our shopping and dining out. The kids especially liked eating at the Olympic Cove and getting gourmet shave ice at the food truck. There's a great beach with lifeguards about a 5 minute drive north we went to swim a few days. Wonderful vacation and a special place that was hard to leave!

Our vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to see that from the moment we opened the door that it looked exactly like the pictures online. Very clean, fully equipped and right on the water. We loved sitting on the lanai every morning with our coffee and cocktails in the evening. Great central location to everything that Kappa had to offer. We would definitely return to this condo the next time we plan our trip back to Kauai: thanks John.
