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 time in John's Condo

  • 5 of 5

My young daughter and I were in Kauai for a wedding and had what my daughter called "the best vacation ever!" I couldn't agree more with her.

John's condo with all the amenities of home was a big reason it was the best ever. I was able to whip up a grilled cheese with ease, load the ice chest with ice (thanks to the automatic ice maker) and snorkel, hike and sightsee from the condo's central location.

And the property management and owners were super responsive to make sure we had the greatest time.

I had the pleasure of meeting John and his lovely wife and their warmth made our trip all the more delightful.

I would stay at their condo again for sure. Two thumbs up from us!

Comfortable and homey

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights at the PK. The community is a little dated but has a lot of Hawaiian charm. It's located adjacent to downtown Kapa'a. You can walk to eat and shop. We drove 1 mile to the Foodland (great deli that carries Boar's Head and bakery) Safeway, but there is a Big Save within walking distance. Employees were friendly, and we took advantage of the mini golf and pool/spa. The actual unit has been remodeled, and it is very spacious. The location of this unit was central to pool and beach. We didn't swim in the ocean because there was trash and the waves were big when we were there. But we loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves. Also, the view cannot be beat. Please note that there is no AC, so you have to open up all the windows. The owner of the unit was very helpful and accessible. Thank you!

Met expectations

  • 4 of 5

The front door lockset could use some adjustment so it doesn't need to be slammed shut to completely close. My partner found the living room furniture a bit uncomfortable for her small frame.

The unit was very clean, the kitchen well appointed with cookware. The site's wi-fi default capacity can be limited at times, we didn't opt for the possible upgrades.

The grounds around the complex are very well kept and the walking trail running north along the beach was quite popular for us. The central location of Kapaa is great, notwithstanding the generous amount of daily traffic.

We enjoyed our stay and would likely stay at Pona Kai in the future.

A nice, small Mexican restaurant called Verde next to the Big Save grocery store is worth a visit.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

The Internet needs to be upgraded through Pona Kia resort. Our rental could use more wattage for evening reading etc. a cable TV hookup for the bedroom would be much better than the blue ray/DVD set-up. More cups, glasses etc would be easier on dishwasher usage. We appreciated the walking/biking offered 40 feet from our condo, cleanliness, ground maintenance and easy walking to plenty of eating, shopping etc. you must go to "Eating House 11849, about a 20 minute ride. Great sunset, better food!, aloha

Owner's Response: Thanks Tom for taking the time to review our unit. It is greatly appreciated.The basic WiFi is free and upgrades are available. We will make sure that out guests know that increased speed is an option. We stock our kitchens based on the maximum occupancy per condo and storage space available. I will check with our manager about adding to the meal service items you listed. We are glad you had a great experience.

A very nice home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We like the central location of the property, on the east side of Kauai, near the town of Kapaa. We had access to lots of walking trails, beaches, food, attractions and the cute little town of Kapaa. The condo is clean, modern, well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely return or recommend to friends. The only item lacking for the price is better internet connection. Otherwise, we could not ask for more. Mahalo John.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Sam We are very pleased that we were able to provide you with a Kauai setting that enhanced your vacation experience. We do strive to make the accommodations as clean and comfortable as possible, and apparently, we are enjoying success in that arena! We have been working with the Resort to increase the quality of the internet connection, but for now, the only solution to increased speed is the optional upgrade. We will keep working on that, and hopefully that will be resolved by the time you return! Mahalo, John
