The property fit all of our needs perfectly. It was adequately sized for our large group of 6 and the location was convenient for beach activities, dining, bicycling and surfing. It was clean and well taken care of.

This house was amazing! The beds were all very comfortable and the rooms were nice and spacious. The air conditioning was nice and cooled the whole apartment wonderfully. They had everything we needed, plus more! Four nice beach chairs, beach mats, a couple boogie boards, a beach umbrella, a cooler, towels; And that was just for the beach! We loved being able to go out on the balcony and watch the sun rise every morning! There was a fun little beach right there that we played at a little bit and The resort had beautiful grounds. It was nice to be so close to the little shops and places to eat. And being in Kapa’a in this lovely condo provided easy access to all the different areas of Kauai that we wanted to explore! Leading up to our vacation I had messaged Betsy a few times asking for some info about the condo and she responded so quickly! As you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it a million times over!

Great 2 bedroom unit with loft that slept 4 teenagers well and gave them some “personal space”. Great location for navigating around the island. Would definitely look to book again for a future trip.

We had this trip planned pre-Covid and finally got to visit! Our accommodations were fabulous w a perfect ocean view. It was conveniently located to groceries, restaurants and shops. It is also half way to visiting sightseeing destinations. The Condo had everything we needed and our hosts answered all our questions and were very accommodating . We did use the loft area for an adult and a full size or queen bed up there would have been appreciated . We thank you for sharing your space w us ! We would definitely recommend this to our friends!

The location of this property is perfectly located half way between the North and South shores which was ideal for our first time in Kauai. The town is great, lots of shops and restaurants that are walkable. The walking/bike path along the ocean right in front of the condo went for miles and is amazing. We were able to see whales right off the lanai every day. I have no qualms giving this condo the highest ratings.

This property was exactly like the pictures showed. It had everything that we needed to enjoy our relaxing stay. The location was the perfect staging area as we explored everyday and the ability to walk to many excellent restuarnts and the many food trucks was great.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. The kitchen was very well stocked, as we enjoy cooking. It was very comfortable for 2 couples, both bedrooms had king sized beds. The only downside was the lanai was a little small for 4 adults and the compressor unit was located here and blew hot air when running the air conditioners.

This condo was clean, great location, and easy communication with owner. We had everything we needed. The beach is calm for little ones, you can stroll along the coast on a long sidewalk, shop, and food all within walking distance. I would stay here again.

We absolutely loved this condo! It was spacious, clean, comfortable and right on the beach. We were so glad we stayed on the east side of Kauai. We practically had the beach to ourselves and we could walk right into town for coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, shopping.. whatever you need! You can hear the waves crashing every night and enjoy a beautiful sunrise each morning. I would definitely stay here again!

The condo was well equipped and quite comfortable. The bed in the master was very comfortable as was the sofa. The dining chairs could have been more comfortable though. We only used the master bedroom, so I cannot comment on the secondary bedrooms. Great sunrise views every morning, and ocean breezes on the balcony while looking at the stunning ocean views. Kapaa Town is a block away with many stores and restaurants. There were some issues that arose during our stay and the owners were very responsive regarding dealing with them. Everything was dealt with to our satisfaction and I was impressed with their fairness and consideration.

This was a great place to stay. Very comfortable condo in a good location, wonderful ocean view, right next to walking trail along water. The owners were very responsive before and during our visit. Thank you!

Within walking distance of stores and restaurants in Kapaa. A dozen people on the beach is a crowd. Ocean views and great sunrises.

Had a great time here. The location was great. The view was even better. The communication was responsive as well. Any time I had a question, it was answered promptly. The complex could use a bit of upkeep but the unit itself was great. The only reason I gave 4 stars for cleanliness because some of the coffee mugs that were hanging were not cleaned. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

Great condo in a great location in Kapaa. Condo was clean and supplied all necessities for a family and beyond. Everything we needed was provided plus lots of beach supplies that made our trip so much easier. We loved our time here, great walkable shops and restaurants and an amazing view. Great hosts and we would love to stay again the next time we visit Kauai!

The property well located to shopping and restaurants. The unit was big and adequately furnish and equipped. The view was breath taking. I have no reservations in recommending friends and family to stay in this unit. The host Betsy communicated well and was very informative in the check in and check out process. She was available for questions and responded right away. We loved feeling welcome in her home. It was a priceless experience . Thank you to the host again.

Clean, spacious, nicely updated condo right on the beach with beautiful ocean view. Gorgeous grounds. Well appointed with everything you need. Short walk to restaurants and shops. AC units work well to cool the unit quickly. Walking/biking path is right there, we used it several times. Nice place! Recommend.

Couldn't have been happier. Everything as stated plus more. Plenty of beach toys and accessories to make for a great trip. Highly recommended.

This condo is in a perfect location and comes with almost everything you need to enjoy Kauai. All the bedrooms are generously sized and waking up to the sun rise over the beach is amazing! Check in and out was very straightforward. The property itself has a lot to offer, although on this trip we were too busy checking out all the beaches and snorkeling off the Napali Coast!

This condo was exactly as described in the listing. Fantastic view. The place was spotless and well equipped. The bike path was especially fun to have right outside the building. Worth every penny and should we return to Kauai, we would love to stay here again. Highly recommend for anyone who wants beachfront.

We had a very relaxing time, the condo was great, it had all the things we needed to enjoy the beach and to feel comfortable inside. We loved that we could walk to places to eat and to shop. We would stay there again and would recommend the condo to others.

The location was perfect! We spent time in different parts of the island and this made it extremely convenient. We had teenagers in our group and the town was ideal for them to pick up snacks and head to the beach. Our favorite thing was being able to take breakfast on the beach to watch sunrise. We’ll be back!

This unit was great for our group of 2 couples and 2 teens. The loft was a great second hang-out space with 2 twin beds and a couch and mini-fridge for the teens. The view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom was spectacular. You could hear the ocean waves at night. The unit is also right alongside the walking/bike path in Kapaa. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we could have needed. Beach chairs and boogie boards were also available. This place was great!

The condo was really nice, clean and the view was absolutely beautiful. It is near lot's of shopping and some really good restaurants. It's centrally located so easy to get to the Fern Grotto and the helicopter tours, etc. It's a wonderful place to stay!

November 2021
Clean, spacious, well stocked condo in a central location. Can't beat the sunrise and sunset view off the porch. Location is great for visiting the island. The beaches nearby were not that great for swimming, but beautiful spots are a short drive away. Terrific, helpful hosts.

My daughter and I had a fantastic time in Kauai/Kapaa in this wonderful condo. The ocean is right out your door, beautiful sunrises, very clean and well stocked. Nice amenities, beautiful grounds and ample parking. I highly recommend this condo—hope to be back!

We had a super time at Betsy's home on the beach in old town Kapaa. Cute town within walking distance. Literally on the beach with great views. The bike path was out the back door. Home was extremely clean and roomy for our family of 5. We loved every minute!

We did like the set up of the property, it had the beds shown, it gets confusing to check into the resort, but the property is privately owned and the owner is in a different time zone and the person available responded slower than the owner in a different time zone. On the other hand, they had everything you need there. It was well stocked and they had extra for you as well (beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Beds were comfortable. View was amazing and great location central to the island. Disappointed that the washer and dryers that are available to use are for the entire resort and outside of the unit. (Bring your quarters). Also found dirty sock and underwear in the upstairs loft., so felt the need to reclean everything. Lots to do around the island and the property was beautiful otherwise.

Great location, both within Kapa’a and on Kauai. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, the beach, etc. And easy drive to Princeville and Poipu. The condo is in a nicely-landscaped resort with a pool, mini golf, hammocks and other nice amenities. Plenty of room for our family of 5. And nice to have A/C. The best part was sitting on the lanai, watching the sun rise, and listening to the waves. Would definitely book this condo again.

June 2021
We could not have asked for a better ocean-front Kauai experience than this spacious condo that easily accommodates six. The kitchen is well-equipped, the condo is convenient to shopping, and the family-friendly resort complex is surprisingly quiet, with friendly and helpful front desk staff. The Pono Kai is not a "resort" with a spa, restaurant, and bar, and activities for keiki, and the pool is a bit small for the number of units in the property, but for anyone seeking a peaceful, centrally located retreat right on the water, it is a great option. We enjoyed a wonderful and memorable two weeks in our third floor unit, and can't wait to return.
