"We just returned from our trip wherein we stayed in B208. We have ZERO complaints about the unit or property and will use this review to provide some insights and perspectives to others considering renting this unit for their stay. Bulletized due to character length:
* Kapaa - centrally located and local vibe. Much better than touristy Poipu and Hanalei/Princeville IMHO. You can reach either end of the island in a little over an hour - without the Kapaa traffic - which there is - it's a bottleneck into Lihue.
*Pona Kai Resort - Older but nice, great location, everything we needed - except ice - that's for resort owned properties (which this isn't). Plenty of parking and BBQ grills. Standard pool and Jacuzzi, that the kids used once. Who needs a fancy lava pool when you have the Pacific Ocean 50 feet away?
*B208 - Great unit, well decorated, beautiful view, 2nd floor, 50 feet from water. Literally, the picutres of the view do not do it justice with how close tot he water it really is. Unit above has weak floor - you will hear them walking around. Beach in front of unit is a beach wall with sand to the right and to the left. Right is filthy with debris and the water is constantly murky - don't recommend it. To the left is much better, water is clear in the morning and murks up in the afternoon. Faces east so you get sunrise everyday, but also the wind (useful for cooling off the unit - just open the slider and the front door and you too can experience your own windstorm :) ). East also means ocean surge, which creates the murk and heavy current. There are pretty spectacular beaches not far away. Kapaa shops and restaurants all within walking distance from the unit. Nice beach pathway for walking/riding. We saw sea turtles and monk seals from the unit. Owner, Manager, and Caretaker were all as accommodating as they could be and very responsive to emails/texts.
*Roosters - or Velocaroosters as we called them are everywhere. Especially outside of your balcony window, at 5:45am, when the people below you think it's cool to feed them pre-dawn. Didn't really matter, as the roosters there are seriously confused and literally crow all the time - not at the unit - on the entire island, and I was up at 5:30am everyday anyway.
Great bang for the buck, would rent this again in a heartbeat. Loved the location and the unit. If we go back to Kauai, we will request this unit. Brian, Larry, and Allie are awesome."
