About the property

Ground Floor, Sleeps 4, Gorgeous Decor. Compare This Unit. You Will Love It!

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.



John Strizver purchased this condo in 1989

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. The place was stocked with plenty of appliances, 3 large floor fans/ceiling fans, linens and towels (including 4 beach towels). The owners were actually staying in their other unit at Pono Kai and were extremely friendly and helpful. We loved watching the sunrise from the Lanai and would walk to Java Kai for delicious morning coffee and breakfast! We stayed here with our 2-year old daughter and felt like we had all the comforts of our own home. It was really hard to leave! I would definitely recommend this condo.

Great location main floor beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.
