We loved being in an oceanfront corner unit! The early morning sunrises were so special with the waves crashing sound. Unit was spotless and well equipped. Pono Kai has nice grounds and enjoyed using the hot tub in the evenings. We also enjoyed walking on the path in front of the unit. Very convenient to restaurants and shops.

Property was as described. The view off the lanai was amazing. Sunrises second to none! Excellent midway point for the whole island. We rented e-bikes just up the bike path twice to view our favorite coastline. Laundry on the first floor next to the elevator made it easy to carry our wash down. I was so happy to discover the beach out front is swimmable, not all resorts along the Kapaa area are but this one is. I highly recommend Pono Kai, nice, helpful staff, the grounds are well manicured and there are grills dotted around the property that are kept very clean. All and all a great experience. If I stay there again we will get a third floor apartment.

Very well stocked. Ocean sunrise amazing!

Lovely oceanfront condo. Well stocked, very clean. But, no A/C in bedroom which is the only place that needs it! Otherwise, window must be kept open & people walk by & look right into the bedroom. Unfortunately, walls are so thin we listened to stomping & running above us the whole time.

So very well appointed and maintained. The owners were a dream to work with. Well equipped kitchen. All the furnishings were very comfortable as well as the bed. Resort itself is very well kept and the location is absolutely perfect!

We were happy with the condo - it was clean and had a great view. Kitchen had all equipment needed for cooking. Aircondition works well for the living room, but the bedroom had only a fan - but it worked fairly well anyway. Perfect for a couple or a small family. Would stay there again another time.

This was the best lodging we had during our two week trip to Hawaii. Beautiful view, beautifully updated accommodations and very nice and responsive owners! Definitely recommend but book early as this home is in high demand.

Wonderful property and location. Had a great experience overall. A/C wasn’t awesome but did work. Unit was at rear of house and hard to cool bedroom in front of unit Suggesting to owners -leave some coffee or beer or wine for guests-it’s a nice touch

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The condo is spacious, clean, and well-stocked with all the essentials for a beach trip or pool visit. We loved listening to the waves through the screen doors and the easy beach access. Having beach chairs and a cooler was great! It’s very spacious for two people, making this the perfect spot for a longer vacation. One thing to note - if you plan on cooking any meals while here, there is not a full spice cabinet - we could only find salt, pepper, cinnamon, and olive oil.

I loved the resort, the condo on the beach, walkability to town, central location, closeness to the airport and I loved the roosters! It was a perfect two week getaway :)

Our time at this wonderful property has been superb! The communication from the owners was great, the location is central to everything on Kauai and the unit is right on the beach with gorgeous views! Want to watch a beautiful sunrise? Open the door to your balcony and take a seat and be prepared to watch a magical art show. Want to walk along the beach, go ahead...you can walk in the sand, or use the sidewalk. The unit was super clean and we LOVED the kitchen, which was well stocked. The bed was comfy and the sofa couch was not bad, just sleep with your head towards the bottom as there is a slight incline. The AC was a nice feature that we did use at times, but a fan was all that was needed most of the time. The bathroom is very spacious and nice with double sinks and a massive shower. The owners have provided a manual with some suggestions on things to do and places to eat. Do not hesitate to rent this unit. I would again and hope to sometime in the future if I ever make it back to Kauai! Mahalo!

Pono Kai is close to everything! Restaurants, the OCEAN and the bike path. Our lovely 2nd floor condo was comfortable and super clean! Having private Wifi was safe & handy, lots of closet space and a roomy bathroom with two sinks! The view.... OCEANFRONT AMAZING! Some heavy rain caused significant noise from the downspouts by the bedroom, and caused another owner's upstairs window to leak down near our dining room window. We phoned the owner of our condo and he was eager to address the problem with the upstairs owner. Good to have a coin operated washer & dryer in building. Thank you.

We absolutely loved staying here and plan to come back. It was quiet and clean. The property grounds were well maintained with barbecue and picnic tables. The ocean was beautiful right off the balcony. The sun rose straight out in front of the unit. The kitchen is well equipped. Location was perfect, walk to everything. Can’t say enough good things about it.

This unit is immaculate and supplies everything you might need for a perfect Hawaii vacation. The bed was extremely comfortable and having AC was a big plus. Pono Kai is in a great location for long walks/biking on a long paved trail, access to several wonderful beaches, and you can walk to many restaurants and shops. I would stay there again but this unit is already booked for next year when I would like to stay.

The Condo complex is steps across the wide paved hiking/biking trail to the beach. Most guest amenities are included in the rental fee, including the gas grills around the buildings. The unit was beautifully decorated and spotless. Since we were moving there from another unit with the same owners, they graciously texted us the morning of the move to let us know, we could move in immediately. They were super nice and responsive to our questions.

It looks like this condo was decorated yesterday! Everything perfectly clean and appointed. All done in whites and blues....the decorator did a great job. View was gorgeous from the lanai. Kitchen well stocked. Bed comfy. Beach chairs and umbrella sturdy. Bathroom large, pretty and clean. On site staff were nice and helpful. LOVED everything about our stay!

This is a great property. The second-floor balcony overlooks the beach with amazing sunrise views. Stephanie is great to communicate with and very responsive. The recently remodeled condo is spotlessly clean and modern. Restaurants, coffee shops, and gift stores are a few blocks away. Try Java Kai for a morning coffee as you watch the sun rise. A multi mile, paved, beachside walking path runs right past the condo. Kapaa is a nice central location from which to cover the entire island. We have no reservations about fully recommending this property to others.

If you’re looking for a great place to stay in Kauai, consider this beautiful condo in Kapa’a! We love the central location and all of the close shops/restaurants. The property was very clean and well-kept, and we enjoyed many sunrises from our private lanai! The hosts were great and checked in with us to ensure we were enjoying our stay.

This condo was perfect. Beautifully renovated and impeccably clean. The beach supplies came in very handy. The kitchen is fully stocked although we mainly used it for breakfast. The resort has a concierge that helped us book 2 amazing tours and provided snorkel equipment rental at a very reasonable rate - don’t use Snorkel Bobs (the equipment was actually better than Snorkel Bobs). Location of the property is perfect for getting around. It’s close to the airport , waterfalls, excursion meeting points and many great beaches. I would 100% stay here again !!!

This property was amazing. Right on the water had excellent things included like beach chairs, first aid kit, sunscreen, and etc. I would highly recommend staying here. Perfect honeymoon location.

This unit was perfect for my husband and my week on Kauai. Stephanie, the owner, was responsive prior to our arrival and equally supportive when I had a simple question upon arrival. Everything described in listing was accurate. Comfortable home and bed. Ample plush towels and enough TP, paper towels, and garbage bags for the week.! Appreciated the small cooler which we packed our lunch in each day before exploring the island. Location is great. We loved the view, the beach, and the people watching. We’ve always loved Kapaa and have now found a new anchor spot for our next visit to the island.

The condo is super cute and well appointed. Can’t beat the view. It was a very comfortable place to call home for a couple days. Location was so convenient to both the north and south shore, and many stores/restaurants in walking distance.

This condo was perfectly suited to our needs. We found it's central location perfect no matter which coastal area we chose for our day trips. The condo itself was comfortable and very well equipped. Our host was readily available and checked in with us to make sure we had what we needed. It was hard to leave.

The condo was lovely. Stephanie was easy to contact. I love that the door opened with a code set just for us. We never had to worry about losing our key. The place is spacious and bright just like the photos. We had everything we needed. The sunrises from the lanai were fabulous. I love that so many people gather along the beach to welcome in a new day. The bike and walking path were handy and gave us the ability to get exercise with an ocean view, walk to restaurants and shops, and people watch. While the resort looks big and crowded, it never felt that way. Everyone was friendly. We were incredibly lucky to have a Monk seal come up to the beach for a nap. We heard from many people this is not usual for Pono Kai area.

This property was amazing. After getting in super late, we opened the patio doors to find that the ocean was right there. Sure, the pictures show that is oceanfront, but I assumed it would be set back a significant ways. Nope, it’s literally right there. The complete remodel of the condo looks so great, and they have everything you could need. Stephanie checked in with us from day 1 to make sure we were doing ok, and that we didn’t need anything else. The check-in/check-out process was easy peasy. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Kauai.

Stephanie's condo was just perfect for a stay on Kauai. The condo was very clean and had all you needed, and the location was great, very close and walking distance to the shops and restaurants, as well as the various must do's on the island. Stephanie was a pleasure to communicate with and she made sure we had what we needed!

We had an amazing time staying at this property. The moment we walked in we were impressed with this gorgeous unit. The decor was beautiful and the beds including the pullout couch were very comfortable. We loved the sunsets and views from the lanai. The first morning we were awoken by the roosters in the lawn. There is a path right in front of the unit that was convenient for strolls along the coast. The unit had everything we needed for our stay including beach towels, a small cooler and 2 beach chairs. We can’t wait to come back and stay here again!
