Recent remodel and upgrade. This bright and breezy unit opens to the beach front of the resort. Ground floor provides easy access to the ocean. The lanai offers a serene area for morning coffee at sunrise and evening relaxation. Sleeping accommodations include a comfortable queen size bed and queen sofa/sleeper in the living room. Enjoy preparing your island meals in a fully equipped kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops! If your plans include multiple condos, please see our two bedroom, ocean front unit, also located in this Pono Kai resort, at VRBO Listing #576404.
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!
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!
Kapaa's central location affords easy access to all island beaches. 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 north shore. 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! YOU WILL LOVE IT HERE! Aloha!

About John Strizver
This condo was purchased by us with my Dad as a place we could gather family to make those memories that last a lifetime and beyond. My Dad was very instrumental 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 right outside of this condo. 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 main floor beach front condo
Visited Kauai from Feb 4/18 to Feb 14/18. Great beach front location with a nice proximity to Kapaa. Central location making it easy to explore the island. Walking distance to shopping, groceries and restaurants. Only takes seconds to get to the beach. Older complex that is kept in immaculate condition. This unit has been tastefully updated. There were a couple issues that were out of the owner’s control that were dealt with promptly. The owner is well versed in the area and answered any questions we had. They also provided us with a list of their favorites that was very helpful since it was our first time staying on Kauai. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Excellent property - great location!
We had a wonderful vacation! The property was clean and extemely well maintained. We had a beautiful view of the ocean - right outside our patio doors! The path that extends around 6 miles passes by the property. We rented bikes and rode the path - so much fun!
We just returned home and it is SO hard t put into words this experience...we have been to Kauai several times...This condo was not just close to the ocean and close to everything we LOVE to frequent but it was SO comfortable....There are even rocking chairs on the Lanai which made that part of it SO comfortable as well....we arrived in tremendous need of rejuvenation and that we received...2 1/2 weeks of bliss...quiet, clean, beautiful...the owner was amazing to work with and the cleaning lady was SUPER sweet...the view spectacular...I think I am running out of words so just know that you will more than get your money's worth and we would like to have this very same condo next year at the same time....goodness...we LOVED it, both my Husband and myself....everything you need is right in the kitchen and we did most of our meals right there and a BBQ is available just a short few steps from the sliding door...everyone is super friendly and the grounds are always very neat and tidy. A simply amazing vacation at the end of which we felt 100% better and we even got to be part of that alarming Ballistic Missile scare......PERFECT....Thank for this opportunity...
Incredible view of ocean, nice condo, lacks air conditioner
A very beautiful view of the ocean. Amenities are nice inside and out, kitchen and bathroom are nicely redone. Kapaa is a really fun town just a quick walk away. There is a strong breeze off the ocean that blows through the unit, except at night when you close the slider for security. It was very hot and muggy at night. Most of the other units had air conditioners. I would stay again, just not in August.
As advertised. Clean, modern, amazing!
Had a great trip. Will definately book this condo again.
Mahlo, Steven - We look forward to your next visit!
Beautiful Condo with Wonderful View
This condo is a newly renovated, modern condo. The property (Pono Kai) itself is somewhat dated but it is well kept and maintained and very clean. The condo was in a great, central location that made it easy to explore the entire island. We loved the patio and sitting out in the morning to watch the ocean (we even saw a whale in the distance one day!). The condo was stocked with almost everything we needed (cooking oil, spices, coffee filters, one lawn chair, flippers (no snorkel), umbrellas, beach mats, etc.) and we were provided with some kauai coffee and cookies to enjoy on our arrival. While we enjoyed our stay here and the condo, there are a few things to note: (1) as mentioned by others the internet is very unreliable and we often could not get access to the network. There are other units that do have their own networks (and we ended up using those quite often rather than the resort's own network) and the front desk was not overly helpful in terms of re-setting the modem, etc. We knew from the listing that wifi would be unreliable so it was not unexpected but it does seem strange that you would have to purchase upgraded internet in this day and age, particularly given the amount of other networks available at the property and the amount paid to stay here; (2) we were only provided with 3 toilet paper rolls for our entire visit and when we ran out we were told that they only provide a starter kit and implied we would have to buy additional toilet paper if we needed more. The property management company did bring us 2 additional rolls when we asked, but we thought this was kind of strange and have never experienced a toilet paper ration at any other condo we have rented, particularly given the amount paid. Our friends stayed at Waipouli Beach Resort and while the amenities at that resort are newer and nicer, we preferred this condo (particularly due to the amazing view). All in all, we would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend this condo. The owner was great to deal with and we had no issues in this regard.
Thank you for your review. We need the feedback from our guests to keep us on our toes, and keep improving that Kauaian experience.
Frankly, I forgot about the wifi issue. It was on my "to-do" list a while back, but fell through the cracks. We will be adding our own service in both of our Pono Kai condos in the near future, and I thank you for reminding me about that.
As I mentioned to my team, hearing about a shortage of paper products is like nails on a blackboard to me. Should NEVER happen! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. It was a miscommunication and there are going to have backup starter supplies stocked in the condo to help prevent this in the future. Have a great day!
Again, I thank you for the time in bringing these matters to my attention, and look forward to your return, so we can show you those improvements, and more.
