This a completely remodeled 1 bedroom/1 bath within a stone's throw to the Pacific Ocean! When you enter the unit you will be taken back by the breath-taking unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. Open the patio door and immediately feel the ocean breeze from the trade winds and smell the fresh salt-water air! The next morning you will awaken to the warm glow of sunrise. You can sit on the lanai with your first cup of coffee and enjoy the boat traffic from the river right next to the building. You are also located right on the walking/bike path called Ke Ala Hele Makalae ('the path that goes by the coast') that will eventually go from Nawiliwili to Anahola. During season you will see whales breaching from your lanai. You now know what paradise feels like.

You will find your condo A306 on the top floor in the Beautiful Pono Kai Resort with 12 acres of meticulously manicured grounds in addition to koi ponds and amenities listed below. It is in the historic town of Kapaa, centrally located on the East Side of Kauai, it is convenient to all of the Garden Isle attractions, only 15 minutes from Lihue Airport and walking distance from many restaurants, grocery, and fun shops and stores.

The condo is on the 3rd floor, within steps of the elevator. Being on the top floor, it’s private, there is no over-head noise ... just the sound of the gentle sound of the ocean surf. FREE Wi-Fi internet service is provided. It features a washer/dryer in the unit, which is an unusual feature on-site. Freshly remodeled with all new, kitchen cabinets, stone counter-tops, kitchen dishes/ pots & pans/utensils/ linens and more, you will not need to worry about running out and buying that essential item to cook with. You will rest at ease with a hotel bed concept where all linens are laundered between guests! Enjoy your first pot of complimentary coffee, and if you plan on cooking spices are available. Many more amenities you will not find in other condos!
The resort itself provides free parking and the parking for the 'A' building is right out front. For your convenience the front desk is open 24 hrs and there is an activities desk in the lobby so you can arrange your island adventures.

If you need more space, I also have a 2bdrm/2bath condo available. You can view this property at:

We traveled to Kauai for our nephews wedding and stayed only 3 days. We met other family members also attending the wedding and our location enabled us to do very many things! Walking the shoreline everyday on the spacious paved path kept us fit for the days adventures. The unit is clean, well equipped and you cannot beat the sunrises and beach right out front of the lanai. A couple of family members said they preferred our unit to their resort for the sheer beauty of having the ocean at your doorstep. This fact was the main reason we chose to stay here. We loved it here!

Our Vrbo owner, Susan, was very accommodating and helpful throughout the process. Regarding the condo: location, location, location. Waking up to the Pacific Ocean right outside our window// lanai was priceless!! Thank you so much!

Excellent property. The kitchen was very well stocked and the condo was very clean and the laundry facilities were very convenient. The location was also very convenient to get to other places on the island.

The unit was clean, well appointed and more than met our needs. We were not cooking on vacation but the kitchen was very well stocked and could have handled as needed. We enjoyed the ocean view and sunrises, and it's great having the trail to walk up the coast, as well as being able to cut through the property and right up into old town Kapa'a. Enjoyed the local businesses, restaurants and food trucks; special nod to the fine food and Lillikoi foam Mai Tai at Sam's Ocean View. And when we weren't walking it was a great location for our trips up to the North coast and the beauty and sights it has to offer. The resort staff was also very helpful and welcoming, we didn't feel like a VRBO rental was any different in their eyes. Worked out great for us overall and is a place we'd gladly spend more time.

We are be backs to this Pono Kai vacation spot, and for many reasons! We totally love the condo and where it is located on the resort and island! It has a great ocean view and right along the best ocean walking path EVER! The condo has always been our first pick for Kauai! We love everything about this place! Thanks for making it our paradise home for a week! Mahalo! :)

We've stayed at Pono Kai multiple times before and love it there. It's centrally located, so getting to the either side of the island is easy. And it's within walking distance to everything in Kapa'a; very nice not to always have to get into the car to do things. This unit is one of the best ones we have stayed at. Oceanfront so that even when we were tired and wanted to rest we were still able to enjoy watching and listening to the ocean. And people (and dog) watching everyone on the walking path was entertaining. The unit has AC, but with the trade winds and the fans we never needed to use it (but nice to have the option). The tile floors are a great touch for being at the beach. And the in unit w/d is truly a plus! Being on the third floor (they do have elevators) we felt safe and secure leaving the door open at night to listen to the waves while we slept. The owner was great to deal with. Hopefully we will have many more future stays in this unit!

Our stay was lovely. This condo is right on the beach. Beautiful views. Walking path right in front. Close to market… condo was well appointed and very comfortable. Susan the owner very easy to reach. We had a great time.

The location could not have been more perfect. Right in middle of island, so convenient with activities we did south (snorkeling, boat tour) and to the north (state parks, hiking). Has a great beach with calmer water in front of this development. Walked every day to a different place for lunch and dinner and had great food in Kapa'a. The pool and grounds are immaculately well maintained. The condo was comfortable and clean and well stocked. We would definitely stay her again.

The unit was very well equipped with anything you might need. Furniture on balcony was very comfortable, which is good because you will spend time out there enjoying the sunrise and the ocean view.

It was clean with fully stocked kitchen for us to cook when we wanted. No need to hope we would get a good seat at the restaurant we just enjoyed our drinks on the Lanai.

This was a beautiful condo overlooking the ocean. It is beautifully appointed with fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning (great for my partner who needs some temperature regulation for health reasons), laundry, as well as beach gear like chairs, umbrellas, and cooler. The check in and check out were seamless and totally smooth. The resort is walkable to local shops and dining, which was really nice. We had an amazing time and would stay here again in the future.

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay at Susan’s condo. The view can’t be beat! We were able to check in early, which was so nice after a long flight. We really enjoyed having the bike/walk path out front. Convenient to town and all amenities, but nothing beats waking up early and watching the sun rise with a cup of coffee. We will absolutely return to Susan’s place when we visit Kauai again! Thank you for everything!

Unit A306 had everything we needed for our 14 day stay. Loved the location and million dollar view. Susan was helpful with any questions we had. We will stay here again!

We made many happy memories during our stay at Pono Kai 306. The sunrises from the lani were awe inspiring, the condo was equipped with everything we needed, the location was wonderful ( short walk into Kapaa) & even the early morning rooster wake up call was a lovely part of our experience. Susan was very responsive to our requests! Great place!!!!

Great location for navigating the north and south sides of the island...was given very useful road information. The beach and bike trail is literally a few steps away from the unit. Many activities to do around the property. Downtown Kapaa is next door to the property. Would highly recommend this unit.

Every thing was great, except our neighbor. We THINK the couple was babysitting, but left the kids on their own for at least two of the days.! Otherwise loved it!! Everyone, very nice.

We had a lovely time in Kauai. First and foremost, the view and ocean sounds from this condo are amazing. The property is also extremely well located in Kapaa, super accessible to the whole island. The washer dryer are incredibly convenient. The host is wonderfully responsive. And the place comes fully stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs, kitchen ware and spices, and there was even some sunscreen and beach reads! Wonderful.

The property and unit are oceanfront with a walking/biking trail following the shoreline. It's a lovely unit and a great location for exploring all of the island.

Staying in Kapaa is as authentic as Hawaiian there is. The town is laid back and walkable. The condo was perfect! Ocean front. Right on the bike path. Coming home from a day of sightseeing and chilling on the balcony overlooking the ocean...what's not to love. I have saved this property for future stays!

We loved our quiet condo on the coconut coast. The views were so amazing, this unit is closest to the beach of any building in Pono Kai. We used the grills on the complex multiple times, nothing better than grilling with an ocean view! Susan was a great host as well, super responsive and friendly! We would definitely stay here again. We loved it!!!
