Kapaa Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Enjoy the comfort of our remodeled and tastefully decorated (so we have been told), one-bedroom, one-bath condominium. Imagine being 75 steps from a mile long golden sand beach on the east shore of Kauai. From your private lanai with unobstructed views of the pacific ocean, you can watch the incredible sunrises and listen to the soothing sounds of the ocean.

Our condominium is a Non-Smoking corner unit on the 2nd floor that has been completely remodeled. Custom-made cherry cabinets and granite counter tops have been installed in our fully equipped kitchen. All the appliances are GE & Kenmore Elite; porcelain tiles grace the entry, bathroom and kitchen areas. The bathroom has a large tiled walk-in shower.

Besides the new additions, the condo comes with all the amenities listed above. Added amenities include FREE SECURE WiFi internet connection, HD TV with On-demand, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, tennis rackets and snorkel equipment for your use while staying at our condominium.

The resort itself provides free parking and the front desk is open 24 hours a day. Each building has coin operated laundry facility and an elevator. The grounds are beautifully maintained with extensive grass areas, herb garden so you can pick fresh herbs for your meals, and a Koi pond. For your convenience there is an activities desk so you can arrange for your island adventures. Each Thursday and Sunday morning a 'tour operator' presentation is hosted at the pool area (highly recommended) and you may win a two-for-one excursion. A workout room has also been added as well as a 5 mile all purpose path which follows the coastline just steps outside the resort.

Come enjoy a stay in paradise!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely beautifully decorated condo. We have been to Pono Kai several times before, but yours is the nicest, best equiped one we have been in. We got quite a show from the whales breaching and the binoculars make it so clear.

Thanks so much we hope to be back soon.

I'm an Interior Designer and my husband is a Construction Consultant is the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our son is married and now we have a grandson. We also have a daughter. Fortunately for us, our family also lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Shirley Cooney purchased this condo in 2001

The first time we came to Kauai was in 1971. We toured 4 of the islands and fell in love with the 'Garden Isle'.

We had friends who owned a condo at the Pono Kai Resort. We started renting their unit and spending many of our family vacations on Kauai.

We always hoped to buy one day a little piece of paradise. In 2001, our wish came true.

The Pono Kai is centrally located on the east side of the island. This location is great for people who want to explore the island. The resort is conveniently located in the historical town of Kapaa. The condo is in walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The beach and a 5 mile walking/bike path is right out front of our condo.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This Pono Kai condo is beautifully furnished & decorated...plus very clean. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is supplied including many beach "toys". The appliances are top of the line & the kitchen is well-stocked along with spices, etc. We couldn't have been more pleased with the unit. Shirley was very pleasant to work with & we especially enjoyed the beautiful tropical flower arrangement that was waiting for us on the counter when we arrived. What a nice touch! The view from the lanai is outstanding & the walk/cycle path in front goes for miles along the beach. We love the location in Kapa'a as it's easy to get to the north or south part of the island. If it's cloudy in Kapa'a, you can pretty well plan on sunshine in Poipu or Waimea. From the condo it's easy to walk into town to get our coffee at Java Kai & their delicious muffins! Other restaurants are within walking distance - The Beachwalk Café has a good breakfast (& great view) as well as the Olympic Café & Kountry Kitchen. This was our second stay at Pono Kai, but this condo is by far the best! The Pono Kai grounds are well-maintained & there's plenty of outdoor equipment to use. We are looking forward to our next year's stay in this condo. Thanks Shirley & Tony for such a nice place!

FABULOUS KAPA'A CONDO

Fabulous Kapa'a Condo
  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Shirley and Tony's place at Pono Kai. We have been to Kauai many times and stayed in many different places, but Shirley's is by far the most beautiful. It is in excellent condition; the furniture is very comfortable and has extra touches that make the condo feel very homey. The kitchen has a granite counter top, chrome appliances and is well equipped. The gorgeous bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with a built in seat which I thought was great. The ocean view from the lanai, as well as the kitchen and living room, is breathtaking. Watching the sunrise from the lanai was the perfect way to start each day. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, soaps and shampoos are provided.
Pono Kai is located in the quaint town of Kapa'a. There is a walking and biking path along the ocean, which is at your doorstep. There is fine dining and shopping within walking distance. Kapa'a is centrally located so traveling to the North or South shores is quick and easy. We truly loved the condo and it's setting and hope to return many more times. Double thumbs up!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our 20th anniversary trip to Kauai. Condo was absolutely beautiful - listing is absolutely correct - would definitely recommend this to family/friends. Is conveniently located in the town of Kapaa within walking distances of shops and restaurants and also centrally located on the island of Kauai in terms of sight-seeing. Shirley was a pleasure to work with; it was a perfect vacation!

GREAT PLACE! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is beautiful - pictures don't do it justice. Very clean! It is also one of the most well stocked condos we've rented so far! (Been renting on HomeAway for 6 years now) Great location in the heart of Kapaa with grocery stores and resturaunts near by- we enjoyed walking around "historic Kapaa" Also very central for exploring the entire island (which we did!). And the added plus - the owner was so very easy to deal with. Definitely would recommend!

MAGNIFICENT VIEW, VERY CLEAN AND PERFECTLY LOCATED

  • 5 of 5
I am not sure what more I can add to what Mike, the McCrossens, et al. have already posted. You cannot beat the value of this condo. Why stay in a resort where you will overpay for what amounts to use of their pool (um, there are plenty of beaches out there!) and room service? Pono Kai already has an adequate pool to fit your need. Plus, you will be centrally located for your trips to the north shore (no more than 40 minutes) or southern/western shore (no more than just over an hour). There are plenty of fine dining (the Eastside being a favorite) and grocery (Safeway, Foodland) options within walking distance of this condo. That said, it is nice to have a vehicle to travel and explore the many beautiful beaches/sights just minutes from your door. Get out there, don't stay in a high-priced resort!

This is our second stay at the Pono Kai with the first being our honeymoon ten years ago. Much has stayed the same and that is a good thing. We were ecstatic to stay in the next building over this time with a 2nd floor balcony/lanai. First floors can be awkward with people constantly walking/riding by on the 5-mile paved path. As mentioned, you will likely hear neighbors but we just kept the windows/doors closed and the condo-supplied fans humming. The lack of A/C even in mid-August was a non-issue for me even though I am often hot in my more humid home environment. As alluded to above, this was our 10-year anniversary and we, too, were greeted with local flowers and lovely note from the Cooneys. Shirley also called a day so in to check on us :) We also met the property manager, Grace, who was very pleasant, helpful and even offered a late checkout since we had a late flight out. Bless you!

The pictures provided are accurate except that the living room television has been updated to a flat screen (w/HDMI inputs) but even this lazy, couch bum hardly ever turned it on. Bring your own HDMI or component plug(s) to hook up your personal laptop for additional entertainment as needed.

I am already missing that condo shower. Wow. It's big, has good pressure and includes a hand-held showerhead, if needed. In the closet you will find not only goggles/snorkels but also a few body boards, binoculars, folding chairs and even a vacuum. Yes, you will use it. Sand will follow you everywhere, so embrace it.

THIS LUXURY OCEANFRONT CONDO WAS A GREAT HOME BASE FOR EXPLORATION; MUCH BETTER THAN A HOTEL!

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we walked in, we knew we were in Paradise! Everything down to the bathroom has been recently renovated and was spotless. We had breakfast on the lanai every morning accompanied by the beautiful sunrise. The kitchen was fully equipped (including pantry staples) and was great for preparing our breakfasts, picnic lunches, and sunshine market dinners -- perfect for those that don't want to eat out every night. Having the beach and snorkeling equipment available was invaluable and saved us some money on rentals. This place was so nice, we were often tempted to stay in rather than explore the island! We will definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to Kauai.

We chose to stay on the East shore because it is centrally located on the island; it was very easy to get to the North and West shores from there. As such we did not spend much time in Kapa'a itself, but in the area we do highly recommend the Sleeping Giant hike, the Wednesday Sunshine Market, the Secret Falls kayak tour, and the restaurant Oasis on the Beach. Ono Ono Shave Ice, which is right next door to the resort, isn't the best on the island, but it's pretty good and you get a lot for the price.

One minor quibble: the bedroom window faces the breezeway, which is highly trafficked by people going to and from their rooms. Due to the lack of A/C, you may want to keep the windows open at night, and it sometimes gets noisy at night from all the kids -- and be sure to keep the blinds closed for privacy.
