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.

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.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay was great! Loved how close the condo was to the ocean and the walking path. The condo is nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable with the sounds of the waves. Unfortunately there was refurbishing of the units next store with noise Monday through Saturday.

Steps from the ocean!!

  • 5 of 5

Updated condo, steps from the ocean exactly what we had hoped for!! We fell asleep every night with the windows open listening to the waves crashing. It was amazing!!! There was enough space for the 5 of us and we loved being able to sit on the lanai and enjoy the sunrise every morning. Kitchen was stocked with plenty of utensils and kitchenware. Condo was just as stated. Location was perfect as well. This was our second visit to the island and we knew we wanted to be centrally located and this was great!! Thank you so much!!

Beautiful location directly on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks in Feb-March 2017. The location is perfect, and this condo is one of the largest 2bed/2bath in the complex. The grounds are beautiful and the condo is nicely updated. The rental agency is great to work with, and the owner was very helpful during our stay. We have stayed in several Pono Kai condos over the past 8 years, and this one is by far the best. We love the small town of Kapaa, the new addition of several food trucks (gourmet pizza!, shave ice!) within walking distance of the condo, the beautiful sandy beach in front of the condo, and the 8+mile walking/bike path along the ocean, just steps from the condo slider. Book early because this condo is very popular!
