We had a great time in C209. The property had everything we needed. The view was beautiful and the property was close to everything we signed up for during our stay. Aside from rust here and there, due to the salt water, everything was well groomed. The full refrigerator may need to be looked at for leaks, but still worked to store our food. The resort was beautifully manicured and had several activities that were fun for the family when we needed a break from the beach. The pool, ping pong, and volleyball net were great additional activities for our family. Also, the washer and dryer accessibility in the unit was also a great supplement. Lastly, the balcony view was peaceful and a great place to take in the views.

The condo worked out perfect for our week in Kauai. The location is amazing. The amenities were an added bonus. Loved the view! Walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Couldn't ask for a better location. And Bryan was quick to respond to all inquires! Would definitely stay here again!

Property was right on the beach and centrally located on the island. The apartment met our needs very nicely and I would stay there again.

The Pono Kai Resort is in a great location on the island. It is very easy to get anyplace from there if you have rented a car. It is about halfway between the north and south shores. If you choose not to rent a car, the beach is right in front of the condo, as well as a paved walking path several miles long. You can also walk out to the main road and walk into town. There are lots of cute shops and great restaurants! We were very pleased when we got to the resort. Check in was very easy and there was plenty of parking near the condo. There is an elevator to help with getting your luggage up to the 2nd floor. The condo was pretty much as pictured on VRBO. The one thing that surprised me is that there is not a TV in the main bedroom. The view outside from there is beautiful, but I do like to watch a little TV when I go to bed at night. The 2nd bedroom does have a TV. There were plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, toys, ect. We actually only used the towels when we went to the pool. We had a couple of things come up and we called Monica, the condo manager, and she always responded right away and took care of it. The grounds of the resort are well maintained, so pretty and very relaxing. The pool and hot tub were very nice as well. We would highly recommend staying here. We had a great time and if we are ever able to we would stay here again.

This unit totally exceeded our expectations! The views, especially the sunrises were spectacular. The pool and hot tub was so convenient and enjoyable. We also made good use of the available games equipment. We played table tennis, croquet, corn hole and jenga. That equipment was unexpected but really appreciated. The in-unit laundry was a real treat. It was so nice to be able to do laundry while visiting in the evening instead of having to go the laundry room. We will definitely come back here!

The property was in a great location, we could walk to shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, most places nearby closed very early or were closed. We learned that most restaurants closed on Wednesday. The unit was older and showed it’s age, but nothing that kept us from enjoying our visit.

The best part of this condo is the balcony view. I watched the sunrise every morning! The condo does not look 100% from the photos presented as furniture, fixtured and appliances have change. The AC worked...it did not get super cold, but it was helpful in the living room...but not in the spare bedroom. It stayed pretty warm for our kids. The appliances were dated and not in the best shape. Paint was peeling throughout the condo. Check-in was super easy. We did not have any communication with management, as we really did not have any major issues. Parking is plentiful and being able to go right out and walk the beach was fabulous. You could easily walk to nearby stores. We were excited to try and use the hospitality suite since we had a very late flight, but it was super small and not enough room for our family of 5 plus other visitors. Pono Kai was super busy with other tourists. We would not recommend staying here is you want a more local feel. The pool got very crowded and loud. We enjoyed staying in Kapaa. It was easy access to most of the island and we love getting to talk with locals.

So happy that we stayed were we did. The view is absolutely amazing, location of condo is close to walking distance to eat, night life if your wanting to go out ( which is minimal everything closes early) and shopping. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Kauai.

Positives: Centrally located. Ocean view. Nice clean rooms. Good play facilities. Wake up alarm every morning at seven from a moa. Negatives: had minor plumbing issues during stay. TV and DVR needs a PhD to operate - did not get to watch anything during stay. kitchen could be better stocked.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at C209! While we have stayed in several different units at Pono Kai over the past 18 years, this was our first stay in this particular unit. This unit is great! Very clean with nice tile floors (so much better and more practical being this close to the ocean). Everything we needed was provided-- including a washer and dryer (so nice not to have to go down to the first floor coin laundry). There was even AC in the bedrooms and living room, but we never had to use it since the trades were blowing and it was comfortable without it. We loved sitting out on the lanai watching the ocean, and people watching everyone along the bike path. And we loved that there were two comfortable futons in the living room, so no fighting over who got to stretch out. C209 is the biggest floorplan we've ever stayed in. As one of the units on the end, it feels very safe as it is one floor up, and there are no windows overlooked by outside walkways, etc. We felt very comfortable leaving our windows open while we slept so we could continue to enjoy the sounds of the waves even in our sleep. And being able to watch the sunrise from the master bedroom was a plus. We love staying at Pono Kai due to its proximity to Kapaa. It's nice to be able to walk to many shops and restaurants without having to get into the car. It's also centered on the east side of the island so it's easy to go to either the north or the south. Communication with the owner was great and check in was easy. Hopefully we will be able to stay here on our next visit to Kauai!

I hope I am able to use this condo next time I go to Kauai. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Covid made it difficult to get there, Bryan made it easy to rebook.

Pros: Great location, decent property, watch sunrise from bedroom, beach-front, A/C. Cons: old furnishings, bad / chipped cutlery, termite / cockroaches, limited quilts.

This 2 bedroom condo was right in the heart of Kapa’a. Restaurants and shops are in easy walking distance. Like other reviews have said, the condo hasn’t been updated. That’s the only slightly negative thing I could say. It was very clean and functional, a beautiful view right on the water, with a walking/bike path that went along the beach. Even better than the condo was the owner. We’ve stayed in many VRBO’s, all with great owners (except for 1). The owner of this condo was exceptionally nice and accommodating. We didn’t have all these rules for leaving the condo which made the end of our vacation easy. I would highly recommend this place. We had a wonderful time!
