About Shirley Cooney

We live in Marin County which is part of the San Francisco bay area. My husband & I are semi-retired. We have 2 grown children and 2 grandsons. We are very lucky to have our children and grandsons close by.

Shirley Cooney purchased this condo in 2001

Why Shirley Cooney chose Kapaa

The first time we came to Kauai was in 1971. We toured 4 of the islands and fell in love with the 'Garden Isle'.

We had friends who owned a condo at the Pono Kai Resort. We started renting their unit and spending many of our family vacations on Kauai.

We always hoped one day to buy a little piece of paradise. In 2001, our wish came true.

What makes this condo unique

The Pono Kai is centrally located on the east side of the island. This location is great for people who want to explore the island. The resort is conveniently located in the historical town of Kapaa. The condo is in walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The beach and a 5 mile walking/bike path is right out front of our condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the most beautiful Hawaiian floral gift that we found on arrival at your lovely home. It was totally unexpected, but a most thoughtful & sweet thing to do for us on our 25th wedding anniversary.



We've already taken a 1 hour Safari helicopter tour of the Nepali Coast & Waimea Valley & that's been the most exciting time we've had since Colorado. We've driven Southwest & Northwest & Kauai is lovely & pristine.

Your home is warm & welcoming and we're treating it as if it were our own - we're both fussy & clean nuts so everything is being kept clean & tidy.



Your furnishings, pictures and overall color scheme is perfect for this great island. The view from your balcony is so terrific - we watched the sunrise from there & it was delightful.



Thank you for the flowers & for making our stay a memorable one on the island of Kauai.

Great Time in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed exploring Kauai from this centrally located beach front condo. We could walk to stores, restaurants and bars. We especially liked going for morning walks along the paved trail that ran along the ocean. The condo had been recently updated and was beautiful. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to create great meals. The complex was older but is in immaculate condition. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. The staff was great to work with and went out of their way to make sure we had a fun time. The owner was also great to work with and left a binder with lots of information about the island including a list of their favorites that was very helpful since it was our first time staying on Kauai. We would definitely stay there gain and recommend it to others.

Our stay at Shirley’s & Tony’s condo at Pono Kai was just amazing. The condo was beautiful, clean and the kitchen had everything one would ever need. From the time we opened the door we felt right at home.

Walking to Big Save and the shops was so easy and close. People are so friendly and willing to help if needed.

The restaurants that were recommended were very helpful. We liked Dukes and the hula pie is to die for. We also liked Daddyo’s for breakfast. I never had or heard of loco moco but that was my breakfast of choice. Terry loved the waffles with six different fruits on top.

Sitting on the lanai or walking the boardwalk with the ocean right out front was the best view.

We are so happy and blessed to have had the privilege to stay at Pono Kai. Shirley called us to make sure we were happy and that everything was ok. You know right away that she cares and offered to help if need be.

Shirley and Tony again thank you for letting us spend 10 wonderful days in your condo. We are now home, but those memories and photos will stay with us.

As hoped.

  • 5 of 5

Shirley thought of everything! Anything you could imaginned or need is planned for. From accommodations to activities she has it covered. The entire stay can only be defined as peacefully relaxing. Especially loved watching the sun rise followed by a quick dip in the warm ocean waters literally just outside the condo. It was everything we were hoping for and more.

2 weeks in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Best two weeks ever!

Condo was great, clean updated and close to everything. Shirley was great to deal with, and so were the managers Grace and Eric. Would come back in a heart beat. Olympic Cafe, Bubba’s Burgers and Scorpacciata Pizza, are very good to eat at, and all are a close walk to the condo. View from condo is amazing, and just steps to the beach, could not ask for anything better!!!!!
