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 Profile & 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, and tennis rackets for your use during your staying at our condominium.

The Pono Kai resort is a non-smoking property. The resort provides a front desk that is open 24 hours a day. There is onsite free parking. 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 even 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. There is a pool/spa area and 2 tennis courts and many other on-property activities.

About Shirley Cooney

We live in Marin County which is part of the San Francisco bay area. My husband & I are semi-retired. We have 2 grown children and 2 grandsons. We are very lucky to have our children and grandsons close by.

Shirley Cooney purchased this condo in 2001

Why Shirley Cooney chose Kauai

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

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the most beautiful Hawaiian floral gift that we found on arrival at your lovely home. It was totally unexpected, but a most thoughtful & sweet thing to do for us on our 25th wedding anniversary.



We've already taken a 1 hour Safari helicopter tour of the Nepali Coast & Waimea Valley & that's been the most exciting time we've had since Colorado. We've driven Southwest & Northwest & Kauai is lovely & pristine.

Your home is warm & welcoming and we're treating it as if it were our own - we're both fussy & clean nuts so everything is being kept clean & tidy.



Your furnishings, pictures and overall color scheme is perfect for this great island. The view from your balcony is so terrific - we watched the sunrise from there & it was delightful.



Thank you for the flowers & for making our stay a memorable one on the island of Kauai.

Wonderful stay in Kapaa, Kauaui

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the Pacific sun rise from the balcony, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, and the propane grills around the facility had a great view of the ocean, too. There were some warm September nights, but thankfully lots of fans and windows to help keep it cool. We really enjoyed our stay, it was hard to leave!

Comfortable, Cozy, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Ever since we walked into the condo we were greatly impressed with the atmosphere it presented. With the great view of the ocean my wife and I were able to take a load off and relax. The condo remodel was amazing as well. The pictures online did not do justice to the real deal. The rest of the resort also presented many fun activities and because we were walking distance to downtown kapaa we were never bored. Overall our experience was great and we highly recommend this condo to anyone staying in Kauai.

Older complex with renovations being done to upgrade the units

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a fantastic view of the water and we watched the boats leaving and entering the channel to the boat launch. The unit was nicely decorated with all the amenities you would need. The central location made the drive to either end of the island tolerable. The staff at the Pono Kai were very helpful and the grounds were beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay and thank Shirley for helping us when we realized we had forgotten our reservation information at home. We look forward to visiting again and won't hesitate to check availability of this unit.

Owner's Response: We were actually one of the 1st private owners to completely remodel our condo. Many of the other private owners used our remodel as a guide for their own remodels. Mahalo for your review, Shirley

Great Stay in Updated Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find the condo was as nice as the pictures and description. Shirley was very ethical to let us know that some construction might start while our stay and offered a discount or cancellation. We are so glad that we decided to keep our reservation. Construction did not start during our stay and we had a beautiful sunrise every morning. Shirley was also VERY responsive to us during our stay. You can tell that she wants you to enjoy your vacation. The location of the property is also convenient to explore the entire island. Kauai is one of our most favorite places to vacation and this condo contributed to ensure a wonderful stay. Hope to come back soon!

Relaxing Stay on the Royal Coconut Coast

  • 4 of 5

The listing was accurate and the ocean view was outstanding. The property was clean, well equipped and ready upon our arrival. The owner provided excellent customer service before, during and after our stay including a partial refund due to seawall repair happening in front of the property. The local manager was very helpful in promptly resolving a minor issue we faced upon arrival. We definitely recommend this property to couples wanting to stay on the Royal Coconut Coast.

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully remodeled condo is in the perfect location for exploring Kauai! We went snorkeling and hiking on the north shore, plus hiked the Waimea Canyon trail, visited the lighthouse, and (of course) just relaxed on the beach. Access to beaches, restaurants, running / biking trails, and all sorts of activities is excellent. The condo is very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and loaded with amenities. Shirley Cooney is an awesome host and the staff at the resort are always available to answer any questions. We will undoubtedly stay here again!
