We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay at Shirley’s condo. The view from the balcony is unobstructed with a lovely ocean breeze. The condo is very well equipped and Shirley was very proactive ensuring that we had everything we could possibly need for our stay. We had great communication with Shirley prior to, during, and after our stay. A lovely condo with a variety of resort activities to choose from. We could not have had a better vacation on Kauai!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay, definitely could have used a couple more nights before heading home to snowy MN. The place is as nice as the pictures indicate. Shirley is awesome! She really wants her guests to have a fantastic stay. We investigated the island each day of our trip, except one. It was fantastic to start and end days on the lanai. A place with a great view and breezes coming off the ocean is a must in my opinion. For those of you that like to travel to see the sites, it takes a bit over 30 minutes to get to Hanalei Bay and around 90 minutes to get to Waimea Canyon State Park from here.

We will definitely be back! Perfect location and the town of Kapa'a is so low key and wonderful! Condo was immaculate and had everything we needed. The lanai faces the ocean, the beach is just a few feet away and we walked on the path to downtown each morning. Shirley was absolutely wonderful to work with.

My husband and I had a wonderful 10 night stay. The unit was very clean, beautifully updated and decorated, and well-stocked. We enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the lanai with our coffee, and then heading out to walk the beautiful beachfront path that can be accessed steps from the condo. We also loved the proximity to many restaurants and shops in Kapa’a. And the beach in front of the condo is beautiful. We could not have asked for anything more! We really did not want to leave. Needless to say, we will be back!

…and yes, it is all about the view!!! F204 has everything needed to assure a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Views from the deck are breathtaking with furniture that is comfortable and well above average. The condo kitchen is extremely well stocked with every utensil and appliance that would be needed to cook a gourmet meal. Extra amenities such as a library, game chest, and closet filled with beach accessories were available—and all in great condition! I also need to mention that the furnishings and decor are truly decorator quality , no expense was spared— which ensures a pleasant atmosphere and comfort. The location is also very convenient to town, restaurants and on the walking path. Couldn’t have wanted for more! Thank you, Shirley and Tony

The property and the condo were as described. The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed and the view was spectacular! Shirley checked in with us a few times to make sure we had everything we needed. If we ever get back to Kauai we will definitely stay here again.

We felt very welcome from the minute we arrived. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals, there were beach chairs and plenty of towels, and it was very clean. As soon as we booked and throughout our stay, we had excellent communications with Shirley. The view was amazing! We would definitely recommend this place!

We had a wonderful stay. The views from the condo were excellent. We enjoyed walking the path along the ocean and sitting on the balcony listening to the ocean. The condo is as pictured in the photos, Shirley was very communicative and we had a great time at the condo. We would highly recommend.

The owner was very communicative and helpful. The condo has a good beach vibe and a very nice view. We could watch the sunrise from the balcony. There is an unassigned parking spot and we never had any issues finding parking. There is also a pool and hot tub which our daughter enjoyed very much. Behind the property there is a biking/walking path (public) next to the beach which was very nice. You can rent bikes nearby. Things that didn’t work so well: - there was a funky smell when we first entered the condo. We bought a febreze and used it and the smell was gone in a couple of days (or we got used to it) - the glasses and plates also had a weird smell to it - using the washer and dryer is a pain because it’s downstairs and you have to go a few times to load to washer, then move to dryer, might need to dry a second time and then again to pick up the clothes. - the contact person in Kauai was a bit rude The supreme question is whether we will come back to this condo again and the answer is a strong yes. The positives overwhelm the minor negatives. We had a great time in Kauai and we hope you will too.

This condo was everything it said it was and more! Tastefully decorated, it had everything we could possibly need. The location and view were fabulous. She even had books to read, because I never bring enough. Shirley was very helpful and in contact several times before and a check in once we arrived. We would highly recommend this condo!

This is a wonderful property - morning sunrises were awesome. Very clean and has everything you need and more! We used the hot tub a couple nights. The trail is very nice, close to many shops and restaurants. Loved Chicken in a Barrel. We toured the whole island and found Kapaa to be centrally located. Went to all the beaches, hiked the Napali coast, took a helicopter ride, biked down Waimea Canyon and went to a luau. Our favorite restaurant was Bobbies in Hanapepe, #7 - Korean chicken, kaula pork and noodles! 🤤Shirley was wonderful. I highly would suggest this condo and hopefully I will be back soon!

Super-friendly host, very clean, great location. Bike & hike trail runs directly in front of the property. Access to the beach was easy but the waves were rough when we were there. Very well stocked condo - everything you'll need.

Shirley and Tony are great hosts! The kitchen had everything I needed for the cooking I like to do! The lanai was very comfy with a wide open ocean view. Shirley is an excellent communicator and was so helpful with all my inquiries! Bed was super comfy - slept like a dream! Overall a wonderful stay!

My husband and I traveled to Kauai to celebrate his birthday and our wedding anniversary. Shirley's condo was perfect! From the location on the island, the oceanfront view to the condo itself! We so enjoyed our stay and hope to return for another visit!

We absolutely loved staying at this property and the seller was the view! Every day and night we could walk out, chill, have drinks, read, and watch the most beautiful ocean view. It was perfect. Shirley was a great host and got back to us immediately with any questions that we had. Perfect location to everything we wanted to do in Kaui. I would highly, highly recommend.

This condo is a heavenly oasis. The lanai (balcony) overlooks a stunning ocean view. The condo is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your time on Kauai. The condo is very comfortable & clean. The owners were wonderful to work with. Shirley went above & beyond to help us have the trip of a lifetime. We’ll definitely be back.

This is a wonderful VRBO rental and the host is great at communicating with you and easy to reach if you need her. Perfect location with ocean views, morning sunrises and the pool nearby. Walking distance to shops & restaurants. Being right on the bike/walking path is a real bonus. The condo has been gorgeously remodeled and well stocked with anything you might need.

This condo had everything we needed for our stay. It was centrally located and east to find. We took advantage of the putters and putted at dusk. Next time I will take advantage of the lei making and ukelele classes!

We had a great stay at Shirley's condo. It has a perfect view of the ocean from the balcony. The location was convenient for travel up north as well as south. The condo is nicely remodeled and has everything you would need. Shirley was great communicating what to expect upon arrival and during the stay. Overall great experience and would be back in the future.

Shirley stands out as a VRBO host. Outstanding communication. The condo was well stocked with all the amenities your would need for either a short or long stay. It was the perfect location to explore the entire island.

Perfectly positioned on the beautiful ten acre grounds with an extraordinary view of the ocean! Condo is comfortable, well equipped with all the necessities, and very nicely decorated. Really enjoyed the walking trail in front of it for taking walks along the ocean or into explore the historical town of Kaapa. Central location is the sweet spot for either north or south excursions on the island. Much gratitude for our time here. We would definitely stay here again! Loved this peaceful spot in paradise!

Absolutely everything about this property was fabulous. The only regret we had was not having the time to stay longer. The host, the manager, the resort, the accommodations, the location, the view, were all top notch. We’ve never had a better experience renting than we did at this beautiful Kauai property. Mahalo nui loa!

My wife and I stayed for a month and enjoyed every minute. The unit has a gogeous ovean view and everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Located near shopping in old town Kapaa, Big Save market, and the paved walking and biking trail along the coast. Shirley was the best owner we have ever dealt with, period. Clean and well supplied for our stay. The description of the condo is spot on. We didn't rent a car and found the resort perfectly located for us, a fifteen minute taxi ride from the airport. We intend to return on our next trip to Kauai. The grounds are a garden with large pool and grills, game courts and convenient parking for those with cars. Loved it.

We hadn't been to Kauai before and weren't sure where we'd be spending our time, so the East Shore felt like a safe option. And this was a very good spot. Everything was a step up from your usual condo rental - nice furniture, upgraded bathroom, nice glasses, nice plates and bowls, comfy lanai chairs, etc. Everything was sparkling clean, and we appreciated the beach chairs and towels. The resort has amenities we didn't use that much since we were out, and the hot tub tends to be full at night - but the grounds were pleasant. Places to eat and shop were basically next door. The lanai has a nice view of the ocean, but there are two buildings closer to the beach, so if you want an unobstructed view you have to leave the apartment. Overall, very comfortable and pleasant stay.

This place is amazing! The view is truly gorgeous and it is right on a fabulous long ocean front sidewalk. You can walk to plenty of great fancy and casual restaurants and all the shops on Kappaa. The resort has great amenities like grills, lawn games, a pool, and a beautiful koi pond. The unit is really well-appointed with everything you need for a delightful stay. We did a lot of relaxing along with great dinners (sams ocean view, oasis on the beach, luikani), a whale watch, hiking, a trip to the lighthouse wildlife refuge where we saw albatross. Great location for getting all around the island.

This condo was perfect. I mean that in every sense. The view was perfect, the location ideal, the upkeep stellar and the reading selection fabulous. I brought my own books, but ended up reading some of their's instead! The kitchen was well stocked with the basics with everything one might need. The only addition would be some of the low beach chairs so one didn't have to rent them from the front office, but even that was ok.

We absolutely loved our stay at Shirley’s condo. It has everything you need to feel like it’s a home away from home (in a tropical paradise.) It’s centrally located, on the water, beautiful inside and out and just perfect for a relaxing getaway. Shirley is also wonderful and we are so grateful to have stayed at her beautiful condo. Mahalo!

We've stayed at Shirley and Tony's Pono Kai condo twice now. It is everything it states to be and more. After seeing and staying in other condos in the Hawaiian Islands I can say with confidence that this condo is without doubt one of the nicest and best equipped as well as best organized of all of them. We are already looking forward to a return trip and staying in this delightful home away from home. Really perfect for two people!

We absolutely loved our stay at this unit. The apartment was gorgeous and so clean! Shirley was always available via a quick phone call. We loved that it had a kitchen- nothing better than eating breakfast on the balcony while looking out at the ocean. The resort was also wonderful. We spent evenings playing a variety of games around the property. We will definitely be back!

We had an absolutely wonderful trip to Kauai, and this condo was a great home base for our trip. Great location with lots of great places within walking distance. We took full advantage of the walking path right outside the property, walking most days during our stay. Shirley and Tony were excellent hosts, great communication and checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. The condo was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and everything we needed to prepare our meals. We will definitely be returning to enjoy this little piece of paradise again.

We were very impressed with this property - the beautiful view was the best ( full non obstructed ocean view!!!). We really enjoyed watching the sunrise from the balcony every morning and having evening relaxation watching the ocean. The decorations throughout the whole unit were beautiful and there were fresh flowers waiting for us when we arrived. The kitchen was stocked with the necessities and there were beach towels and ice packs for us to use. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great! The location is perfect - we did not have a car the first couple of days in Kauai and this unit/ resort was in the perfect location to bike to beautiful beaches and walk to town for plenty of shopping/ great restaurants. The communication with Shirley was incredible , she called us before our stay and during to make sure we felt comfortable and she gave great tips for the area and even helped us research some things we were interested in. She was so so wonderful and we were so impressed! We definitely will be back to this beautiful unit!! Thank you Shirley!!
