  • Just what the doctor ordered!

    "This, our first Hawaiian Island vacation, was a reward for my wife, as she had cared for her father (with mild Alzheimer's) in our home for the last 16 months of his life, & although neither of us ever balked at the privilege of providing care for a man we dearly loved, it still takes its emotional & mental toll. That being said, the primary purpose of our trip to Kauai was to relax, relax, & relax some more, & Ted's second floor Unit #205 met that purpose to a T. The east-facing balcony lanai just outside the window wall in the living room, with its sliding glass & screen doors, allowed us to "chill out", whether we were having Kauai coffee in the AM or lunch or supper or Longboard Lager & wine in the evening. The bedroom at the other end of the condo was very comfortable & had plenty of closet space but frankly, since we live in the high desert of Albuquerque NM, with plenty of "beach" but no ocean, we slept half the time on the sleeper sofa so that we could be lulled to sleep by waves crashing on the shore below us. I have a bad back, but honestly I was comfortable on the sleeper sofa. We hardly used the bedroom A/C, as the trade winds blowing thru the east sliding screen doors to west-facing bedroom windows kept us coolly comfortable all the time, whether we were awake or sleeping in either room. I know that previous reviews complained about traffic noise, but we found that it was not any more bothersome than most any large city (we have sirens, too) unless one is well away from arterials, but then you don't get the beachfront ambiance this condo provides; & if you like rural, then you will love the rooster "alarm clock" provided by a couple of Kauai's feral chickens. The website's views shown were not misleading: Wailua Bay waves hitting the beach were incredible. The 7 minute walk to the beach can be done without crossing the Kuhio Hwy. The undertow was too strong for swimming while we were there, but Lydgate Park is a 5 minute drive to have Snorkling 101, & you can drive to the south (best snorkeling) & north shores in less than an hour. Kitchen was well-appointed with any pots, dishes, appliances, etc., that one needs to cook meals; if you prefer walking to eat out, then there are 5 inexpensive restaurants 1-2 blocks away; we never had a bad meal at any of them. Plenty of electronics for entertainment, but we didn't come to Kauai to watch TV. If we come back to Kauai, we want to stay here again. Mahalo, Ted, Marvis, & Lauren!"

  • Best of the Bunch!!

    "This condo had it all! Including, get this-- it was right next to a Pokemon stop. My kids loved it!The unit is very well maintained and equipped. The washer/dryer and bedroom A/C units were a saving grace. Because of a tropical storm the weather was unusually humid and we would not have survived a night without that, which apparently is rare at Pono Kai. We celebrated a family reunion utilizing 4 different beach front units and 2 of those were owned by Susan and by far much nicer than the others. The key code locks were also very convenient as we had no worries about the kids loosing or forgetting keys. The location was walking distance to shopping, dining, and directly on the ocean with beach (although not one of the life guarded beaches) and a 4 mile walking/bike path. Susan is a local islander herself and truly a professional vacation rental owner. Every aspect of our stay, from initial inquiries to deposit refund, was beyond our expectations. I highly recommend!"

  • The property was well kept and enjoyable

    "I am a very picky person when it comes to staying at vacation rentals while in Hawaii as all of them are unique in their own ways but my needs will remains the same when seeking a location. This vacation rental was all I expected and more.. the place is a reflections of the owners, if they are happy with their home away from home and can make it a home for others as well, this says a lot.. I was very pleased with the owners, care keeper of the place as well as the location. My family felt at home while we were vacationing and that says a lot.. I wld definitely recommend the Manning's home away from home as it gives the "home" feeling.. we usually frequent Hawaii so relaxing is a must on our list when in Hawaii- doing the tourist thing is not so much as we have been more than 15 times and have done it all already. This place hit the spot with us and my family.. thank you for an enjoyable vacation!"

  • Great place with a great view

    "Had a great stay here. The view was great, and was very quiet. Grocery and across the street, so convenient for that kind of stuff. Would recommend to everyone!"
