Great location right at water and bike path. Kapaa town was a short walk away.One drawback from ground floor unit. Noise from people walking upstairs was fairly noticeable, but did stop by about 9 p.m. so didn’t disturb sleep. I would definitely stay there again.

Beautifully updated and well-appointed kitchen, all the beach supplies like chairs, coolers, umbrellas, and a comfortable lanai to enjoy the sunrises. It was a very easy and scenic walk to Kapaa where there was a great variety of shopping and restaurants. East Shore was a great place from which to enjoy the whole island. Would highly recommend.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed in a number of condos for vacation and this was by far the most perfectly equipped and clean. It didn't just come with a gorgeous view, it also had everything our family needed for our stay. The management company was fantastic and communicated quickly and kindly. We loved being able to walk into the town of Kapa'a and the residents were very welcoming. Sam's Ocean View, Kountry Kitchen, and Mariachi's were all delicious and had a friendly staff. The location of the condo was perfect for day trips around the island since it's a middle point. The only downside was that you could hear the upstairs tenants walking around.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: What a perfect setting for a vacation on Kauai. The condo is perfectly set up for enjoying your vacation and has all the amenities you could ask for: beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, snorkel equipment, boogie boards. The Condo is right on a wonderful walking/biking path -- worth renting a bike to see the sites. The Pono Kai Resort has lots of activities on the property for the family as well. This vacation rental exceeded our expectations.The only negative comments I have is that you can hear lots of noise from the condo above this one....sometimes it was a bit difficult to sleep because of lots of very loud foot traffic from the second floor condo.

Perfect location- close to shops and restaurants, short drive to grocery store. In between north and south shore so easy drive each way. Property itself was perfect for a family of four. Gorgeous sunrise every morning, long bike trail was perfect for long walks while watching the whales. When we come back our family agreed we will stay here again.

The unit is clean, roomy, decorated beautifully and fully stocked with all you need for a comfortable stay and adventuring on the island. Being on the ground floor with a straight look out to the ocean is heaven. There is noise from the above unit as others have mentioned but did not in anyway give a negative feel. We spent most of our time out on the patio anyway! The condo complex is lovely and offers lots of choices. The trail along the ocean is great for walks and an easy safe way to get into town. It was great being able to walk into town. We would for SURE stay here again if the future allows!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The apartment is very nice, but has one serious flaw. Being a downstairs unit it is extremely noisy as the ceiling has no insulation...you can hear every foot step above you...and their conversations. The noise really detracted from how nice the unit is...a real shame as it is a nice place.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This place was clean and perfect for our group. We were two couples traveling together and truly enjoyed being right on the beach. Sitting out on the lanai watching the sunrise was amazing. You're super close to the shops in Kapa'a so definitely take advantage of that. We didn't utilize any of the amenities on the property because when you're right on the beach, why hang out at the pool. One downside was not having a washer and dryer in the unit but the machines were right down the hall from us. The one complaint we all had was the noise from upstairs. I don't know if the people were purposely stomping around at all hours or if the ceiling/floor above us was just super thin but it was obnoxious. Lucky for us, we were out and about while in Kauai and by the time we got back, we were all so exhausted that we just fell asleep. If you're staying in the unit and not going out much, I could see this being a major issue. Also, the gal checking us in at the front desk was not very pleasant but fortunately, we only had to deal with her on the check in. Garden Island properties who manage this unit, were very responsive and easy to work with. Would definitely return here.

The people above us woke up early and walked like elephants. It is an older building with little insulation. They walked all the time it drove us crazy!

Four of us were quite comfortable in this lovely condo. It had all the things one would want and lots more- like beach chairs, boggy boards, coolers, spices etc. If you are an early riser you will love the sun rises. Have fun.

Very well appointed and clean condo in Kauai. We appreciated all the beach gear! Nice central location and we enjoyed being able to walk to shops and restaurants. We rented bikes one morning and road the boardwalk; very beautiful ride!

The location of this condo is great for sunrise viewing and relaxing. The area directly in front of the condo is not a beach for swimming but there are beaches short walks in either direction. The condo has been remodeled and is very nice and comfortable. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed including beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, boogie boards etc…Would give this condo more than 5 stars if I could!

This place is FANTASTIC!! We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Everything is fully stocked with essentials as well as extras, beach chairs, ice chests, games, books, too many to count! The beach decor is adorable, beds are super comfy and the views are incredible! The ocean front walking path goes on for what seems like forever, you dont even realize you are exercising on vacation. Infact you can walk to just about everything you need, coffee, shopping, restaurants. If this unit was for sale I would jump on the chance to buy it, that's how much we loved it. A huge thank you to the hosts, well done!! 🤙🌺

We’ve stayed at 3 different locations in Kauai and we loved being able to see the sunrise from our bed and living room! Being so close to the beach and walking trail we’re nice too. I also enjoyed reading in the hammocks that are right outside the room.

This condo was a perfect fit for our Kauai trip! It was amazing being right off the beach, we even saw whales right from our patio! The short walk to shops and restaurants right down the road and the Kauai bike path that goes right through the property really made this the perfect spot.

PROS: 1) Overall nice, clean, and cozy 2) Comfortable beds 3) Nice shower 4) Fully equipped kitchen 5) Beautiful ocean views and easy beach access 6) Close to shops and restaurants 7) Equipped with Boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, chairs, picnic blanket, and beach towels. 8) Beautiful resort with well kept grounds. CONS: 1) Patio screen door kept falling off, so we kept it off. Needs to be replaced or fixed. 2) Very noisy when people are above you. You can hear them walking back and forth. When they are in the bathroom it sounds like it will come through the ceiling. Very thin walls. 3) Bedroom rugs needed to be washed or replaced between guests.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We really enjoyed are stay at Pono Kai. B-101 is very spacious and the re-model is nice. The pounding feet and an alarm going off at 4:30am from the unit above us was not pleasant. There seems to be no insulation between the upper and lower units. Nonetheless, we love the ground floor unit as you can walk right out to the ocean. This condo if very well stocked with beach gear which is so convenient. We used the beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, and beach towels. We have stayed at other condos and homes over the years and this one definitely has the best beach gear. The refrigerator seems to be on its last leg, and the safe did not work. Also, the unit has a very musty smell. These items are not deal breakers for us and we would definitely stay here again.

Had a great experience with this rental. Easy, no hassle check-in. The property was as advertised. Everything worked well and the beds were very comfortable. We were happy to find beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers and other beach supplies for our use. You get a little bit of noise from the upstairs unit but that didn't bother us any.

The view was beautiful, beds comfortable, unit clean.Did have an issue with AC not working for a couple days. But due to Sara ( property management) she went above and beyond to get unit fixed. Actually she was very nice and helpful. Thank you Sara. Unit is on bottom floor. If someone is staying above you good luck.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Unit was in a good location however, the paper thin ceilings meant the people above us were walking on our heads all day and night long! When addressed with Pona Kai front desk staff, they were not very helpful. Additionally, the bathroom ceiling was actively leaking from the top unit. We had to call for repair during our vacation. Upstairs balcony was also sagging down towards our unit. When we return to the island, we will choose an alternative place to stay as it wasn't worth the money.

The unit was clean, the kitchen was well stocked with more than enough kitchenware. They also have everything you need to hang out at the beach (beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, umbrellas, mats) or the properties pool. The beds were very comfortable and bath towels were soft. Even the problem we had with the electronic lock turned out to be no big deal thanks to the great customer service from Garden Island Properties. Next time I travel to Kauai I will definitely book with Garden Island Properties! Mahalo!
