Excellent Choice

Guest:  William M
Date of Stay:  Apr 4 - May 5, 2017

This is our sixth stay in Kauai. This Pono Kai condo is one of our top choices. It is situated directly on the beach in Kapa'a town. The third floor lanai offers an obstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and the twelve mile bike path. From this vantage point a cup of coffee and the sunrise spikes the day as trade winds begin there rise. The condo was well appointed and well stocked for the visitor from far away. We are from New Hampshire. Kapa'a town offers an excellent jumping off point for island exploration. There are great restaurants and shops within walking didstance from this condo. One of our favorite restaurants was the "Olympic Cafe & Bar generous portions and reasonable prices. We had one mishap with the entry lock which needed cleaning to operate correctly. The owner, Dean May, was prompt in straightening the situation out. We were happy with the condo and feel comfortable recommending it

I have to say your condo was wonderful.  It was probably the most ‘stocked’ condo we have ever rented!!  The cooler proved to be so valuable as we took lots of day trips and it kept our beverages cold.  It was very hard leaving, but I’d like to think we could come some day!!  If so, we will definitely be looking to rent your condo again.  Thanks for sharing a little bit of paradise with us!!


Thank you

Our family really enjoyed your condo ad our stay in Kauai!  We loved the central location and were able to explore the North, East, and South beaches as well as the canyon.  Walking distance to Shave Ice was also a bonus!

Thank you so much for the beautiful space and amenities you provided for our stay in your wonderful condo.  It was the perfect environment for relaxing, cooking, sleeping and sublime happiness.  We hope to return to Kauai in the near future and C305 will be our first choice.  We hope your time here brings you as much serenity as your environment has enabled for us.

The condo was delightful, so well supplied.  Appreciate the condiments you provided for your guests.  A special thanj you to Brenda for her resturant suggestions as well as the loan of bikes.  Loved the island and beaches.  A delightful end for my 70th birthday trip. 
P. S.   Even though it was an early alarm, one of my favorites here was watching the sunrise.  What a blessed way to start the day.

A WONDERFUL VACATION
Guest:  Sue D
Date of Stay: 01-20, 2016
We stayed here for a month from January 20 to February 19. I'm writing this on feb 18 our last night. This condo was really a home away from home. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, the TV's are big and function well (although we didn't watch much TV), the Internet works well, the grounds of the resort are very well maintained, the beach is steps away and the best part...this condo has a perfect view of the breathtaking sunrises and occasional rainbows. The sound of the ocean will be sorely missed. We spent a lot of time touring the island and we always enjoyed coming back "home". We made good use of the cooler, beach chairs, snorkel gear, and even did one of the puzzles! Mahalo Dean...I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful condo. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't let you know that Brenda (the local contact for any issues) is fantastic! I can't wait to come back!

FIRST ISLAND TRIP
Guest:  Mariann and Larry
Date of Stay: 11-9, 2014
Thanks & thanks again for sharing your slice of paradise with us.
Our first trip to the islands couldn't have been better. Thanks so much for the extras! The condo is clean, grounds exceptional & staff friendly and helpful.
Our hope is that we won't have to wait another 10 years for a vacation! We'll certainly be returning to C305, if possible.

A GREAT VACATION
Guest: Sharron and Van
Date of Stay: 10-15,2014
This was our fifth trip to Kauai, but our first stay on the Coconut Coast. This was the best provisioned condo we have ever stayed at. Thank you for all of the "extras" that you provided. It felt like being at home. Of course, the view from the lanai is great and the walking path saw my daily use, but a condo that is truly as advertised and meets our expectations is much appreciated.
Thank you for a great vacation. Thank you for a welcome to the finest island in Hawaii.

PARADISE

Date of Stay: 8-28, 2014
What a slice of Paradise you have created here at C305--very spacious, superb ocean view, and extras. We would definitely return to your condo. It was very special. Thank you for making our stay memorable.

PARADISE VISITED AGAIN
Guest: I & M PAUL
Date of Stay: May 21- 7, 2014
A little late in writing the retrip to the islands couldview, but we had a wonderful time once again. We have stayed in this unit multiple times, and each time we are amazed by the latest improvements. We love the step-in shower. The unit is very clean, and has every comfort you might expect.
Our trip would never be complete without a visit to the Hukilau restaurant for their tasting menu. You will enjoy the view and your vacation experience

ISLAND HOPPING
Guest: K NANCY
Date of Stay: May 1- 7, 2014
Our visit to Hawaii stretched across 5 islands. We stayed at exceptional locations but by far this was the best. The island was fantastic, the grounds immaculate and the accommodations remarkable. Everything you needed and more was stocked for you to use. The central location makes driving easy and the pathway makes walking or biking fun.

DIDN'T WANT TO GO HOME
Guest: Krista
Date of Stay: October 14 - 21, 2103
Sarah and I can't thank you enough for opening your "home" to us! Our stay was fantastic and we couldn't have found a better location and accommodations. We toured the island and found that we were staying in the nicest area on the best beach.   The condo had everything we needed (and more) and the beds were very comfortable. We didn't want to go home.
I plan to go back to Kapaa next year and I hope that your condo is available.....I will be checking early next year!!

"Another Month in Paradise"
Guest: Steve W  (Ramona, CA)
Date of Stay: Sept 16 - Oct 14, 2013
We just spent a month at this lovely condo. The Pono Kai is very well maintained and is centrally located. It is walking distance to shopping and restaurants and is situated on the walking/bicycle path that follows the coastline for several miles. It’s an easy, scenic walk or you can rent a bike next door and just cruise. The condo has everything you need and then some. Brenda, the housekeeper / handyperson / vacation facilitator etc., is a wealth of information. She has lived on Kauai her entire life and is full of interesting information about the island and is more than happy to answer questions. Everything was clean and well maintained. We never adjusted to the time change and were up every morning at 6 to have coffee on the lanai and watch the sunrise. We have stayed at the Pono Kai before but this was the first time in this unit. It was our favorite. A couple of new discoveries we made this trip were the Anahola Cafe and the Anahola Farmers Market, both of which had good lunches and are well worth the 5 minute drive. Anini beach park is nice but if you continue past the park, the road dead ends at a quiet little protected beach with plenty of close parking. Over the years we have done most of the tourist attractions but this trip saw one that we hadn't tried. The Kipu Ranch Adventure was a "must do" for all ages. You get the opportunity to see areas of the island only accessible via ATV. Check reviews on Yelp or Tripadvisor for Kipu Ranch, the Anahola Cafe, and the Anahola Farmers Market for more details.


 

 

Our Story

Credit Card Processing

Customer Raves

My wife and I purchased this condo in 1999 because we fell in love with the island,   We have managed to travel to the island two or three times a year to inspect our condo and make any necessary repairs.  Over the years, we have probably spend as much or more than the purchase price on improvements.  Our goal has always been to give our guests more than they had expected and, from the comments we have received from past guests, we have been successful. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We hope you will enjoy our beautiful air-conditioned one bedroom beach front condominium complete with glorious sunrises as much as we do. The Lanai is perfect for sipping your morning coffee while listening to the ocean and watching the sun rise.  You will know what it means to be in paradise when you relax in our condo just like we have over the years.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have just recently finished a complete remodel of our condo that included an entirely new kitchen (cabinets, granite counter tops, and appliances), flat screen TVs in the living area and the bedroom, new tile flooring and an entirely new furniture package throughout.   In addition to the king sized bed in the bedroom, we have installed a wall bed in the living area that folds out to become a queen sized bed with a real mattress (not a sleeper sofa).  Our lanai looks out over the ocean and in the winter, one can see the whales splashing a half mile off shore.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Condo Door Lock:  We have installed an internet programmable key pad door lock on our condo.  After we receive confirmation of your final payment for your stay in our condo, you will be provided with your own unique code as well as instruction for its use.  This code will only allow access to our condo during your time you will be staying in our condo.  By the same token, previous guests' codes will not allow them access.  We feel this provides our guests with a much greater security that the old fashioned key locks.  In addition, with your code there is no need to check in with the front desk at the resort upon arrival so no matter what time you arrive, our condo will be ready for you.  Simply proceed directly to our condo, enter your code and begin to relax.

The Pono Kai Resort is a nice quite resort in the town of Kapaa with shopping, dining, and entertainment available within walking distance and a ten mile bike path that passes right by the resort.  It is conveniently located about equal distance from the dry southern side and the rainy northern side of the island, which allows an easy drive for touring the different aspects of the island.  The resort itself has all the features you would expect from a vacation resort.   The Pono Kai resort has elevators in all buildings, so even though our condo is not on the ground floor, it is still accessible by all.  Parking in the resort is free.
