Pono Kai Resort was a great place to stay, with a swimming beach in front and a pleasant walkway to walk or bike for miles.
Oceanside unit the best we have rented so far and we have rented many. Clean, well stocked, newer everything. We love being 40 feet from the ocean and the path to watch all the bike and walkers. Kapaa is the essence of Funky town and we love that. Pono Market is steps away for authentic island cuisine. Locals line up here. Lots of restaurant choices and healthy donuts made with taro at the Holey Grail food truck. Lion coffee at Longs is the best deal in town. I could go on and on .
Great place to stay in Kauai. Amazing location!
The location has a beautiful setting with easy access all around the island. Wonderful communication from host!
We were looking for a getaway from Minnesota’s winter. This property was a wonderful choice. Great morning sunrises, enjoyable people watching along the ocean-scape path, very walkable location ,and the property manager, owner, and resort staff were very responsive to work with. Definitely recommend.
Perfect for our needs and budget. Manicured property staffed with very professional and cordial employees. The ocean front ground floor condo location was amazing and we enjoyed the walking/bike path in front of the unit. Not too close however. The organization/layout of the supplies in the condo was very nice- it was certainly noticed. The unit could not have been cleaner.
Thank-you for a great stay at your condo. We will back!
Had all the kitchen things one would need. People were easy to deal with
This condo has all the amenities!! Lots of room, amazing kitchen, and super comfy bed!!
Aside from the Kapaa traffic this was a great spot and home away from home!
Easy experience Thanks
We had a great time! The location was the perfect spot to watch the sunrise. Easy walk to everything. The condo had everything we could possibly need or want! Lou was awesome and sweet as could be.
Thank you for having us. We will come back again soon!

Super clean just like the pictures, excellent AC, ceiling fans in every room. 20 steps to ocean!!!!! I counted them. 2 minute walk to old town Kapaa. Quiet relaxing awesome place.
This condo was well equipped for anything you wanted to make in the kitchen. They even provided beach chairs, beach towels and fins. The view of ocean was great. Kapaa is a good location to drive to north or south beaches as well.
We had such a lovely time during our stay. If you're trying to decide which side of the Island to stay on we think the East side is PERFECT! You can get to the North and South side easily. This particular rental is first floor where you can sit on the patio and listen to the ocean. We watched the sunrise every morning. You have full access to the resort amenities. We rented bikes for the week from Hele on Kauai Bike rentals, a short 2 min walk from the condo. It truly was a highlight of our week riding the trail that runs in front of the condo. You will have everything you need while you are staying here. Including a fully stocked kitchen, toiletries, beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. We promise you will love it here!
We had a great stay at this clean and well stocked condo. The decor was refreshing and property management staff was helpful and so kind to add a personal touch by leaving a hand written welcome note and box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Property management also extended the kindest courtesy by providing an early check in at no charge which we were incredibly grateful for. The amenities included included beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and a cooler which often is not the case in other condos we have stayed at. We were able to enjoy our daily excursions that much more by taking these with us. A wonderful experience, we will be back!
We’ve stayed at Pono Kai on and off for thirty years. Never did beach front until this time. Great price, great communication. Easy check in.
We enjoyed the amenities at the condo. It was well outfitted for a vacation stay.
Loved this place beautiful view right off the living room and the lanai could sit there relaxing to the sound of the waves for hours! Was centrally located near most of the adventures we took!
We enjoyed the close ocean view from the lanai and living-room! The resort amenities included fun yard games such as croquet, putting greens, and giant chess, along with a pool of course.
The process from start to beginning was perfect. Our host was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and had all the things that we needed! Very easy to communicate with! The condo was perfect!
In addition to the stunning location, the owners go above and beyond to make your experience memorable. From the Welcome gifts, to the stock of basics (plastic wrap & foil, spices, basic oils, teas, everything but the beans for coffee, & more), solid internet and TV access, to providing beach chairs, boogie boards & coolers, to their great communication. They are committed to a great experience for their renters.
The location of this property is ideal-- with respect to the town *and* the resort property. We rented bikes nearby (check yelp for hours, options are limited based on the time period). It was *so* fun exploring the trail.
The Resort: The facilities of the resorts look terrific. We enjoyed the pool and hammocks. There were lots of grills available (and tools in the unit), but we were't there long enough to enjoy. The resort had some ability to check your luggage and keep access after check out.
Also, the resort laundry was very convenient, affordable & they have change machines (Cheaper & more econvenient than at home).
This property has two check-ins & Check outs-- from the unit and from the resort. It was easy, just took extra time.
The access to Lihui airport was a key factor when choosing this place. The resort can provide trusted rides to the airport.
We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. It was a fantastic experience.
So happy that we booked this condo, it was seriously perfect. Fully stocked, gorgeous ocean view, walking distance to restaurants and shops... We ran/walked on the path every morning before it got too hot. Can't wait to go back!
Would stay here again. Floors aren't very sound proof as people upstairs were extremely loud the whole time.
Our stay in unit B106 at Pono Kai was perfect in every way! Updated & clean, our unit served our needs. The property management company was quick to respond to our questions and check in & check out was a breeze! They even let us use the chairs and beach coolers for the afternoon after checking out while waiting for our red-eye flight home!
Would not hesitate to recommend this property and will surely come again - our favorite place to stay on the island!
This was a great location with a nicely appointed condo. We loved the mirror on the side wall, so you could double the view while in the kitchen cooking. Pono Kai is right on the beach, and this condo has a terrific view.
This condo is a hidden gem. The property is stunning and in a perfect central location. It was intensely clean and bathroom/kitchen were updated. Plenty of extra towels and linens. Kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook all meals in. Loved the beach chairs and cooler for beach days. Walkable to downtown for restaurants and shopping. Host was very responsive and accommodating. Looking forward to visiting again!
The condo was clean, beautiful view, well stocked, and avery comfortable bed The resort had so many activities to do that we could always be active. This was the first time we've stayed in a condo on the ground floor and decided we would do it again. We definitely hope to stay here the next time we travel to Kauai. Thank you. John and Marilyn
We had a great stay! Perfect location! The beach is right there, the walking path also right outside the door, close to groceries and dining.
Property was very nice and exactly as the advertised photos. Beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings. Recommend highly.
Great location, lovely unit. We had a great time.

Clean, practical , up to gate appliances , granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom,Nice size TV and Stero ,. The property has a nice pool , and bbq areas walking distance from the room.
I would easily stay so the room I had or any room on this property.
All listed details of condo were perfectly accurate, the place was very clean, well stocked and communication with Dawn was very supportive and helpful during these challenging travel times. Pono Kai is the perfect location for Kauai adventures. Sunrises are beyond description. We had a fabulous trip and hope to be lucky enough to book this location again.
Having the ocean sunrise at our backdoor every morning made this place so beautiful and relaxing. Just what we needed! Wonderful kitchen allowed us to cook meals as a family. We also enjoyed the outdoor barbecue and pool and jacuzzi. I would return in a heartbeat— didn’t want to leave!
