Freshly remodeled with all new, kitchen cabinets, stone counter-tops, kitchen dishes/ pots & pans/utensils/ linens and more, you will not need to worry about running out and buying that essential item to cook with.

Bad timing

  • 3 of 5

Was apprised of work being done in building. Either we did not understand or were not let know the extent of the work but the unit next door was down to the studs and active construction was going on when we arrived on Friday there and in other units. It continued on Saturday am.

Not sure we could have enjoyed the rest of the week under those conditions. Unfortunately also we had a family emergence and had to return home on Sunday.

This short stay was not good for several reasons. Even at best relaxing in the unit during construction hours would have been challenging. Have used VRBO many times and enjoyed the stays. Just wasn't in the cards this time.

Owner's Response: I am saddened to see this review. I was told of the construction project to renovate the time share units in my building the middle of December and notified all of my guests immediately offering them a full refund if they choose to cancel. I disclosed that the unit across the hall and below them were being renovated from 9:30am-4:00pm and was assured by the resort management that measures were being taken to be respectful of the private owner's guests. Upon their arrival I was informed of their family emergency and tried to be as helpful as possible. I agree that bad timing describes their vacation in regards to the family emergency, but feel that I was as upfront and honest about renovations that were out of my control. The finish date is scheduled for April 28. I did hear from the wife that the family member was doing well after their arrival home and am thankful for that, it was very stressful for her being away from home during this time. Please refer to my other reviews, I pride myself on being a hands-on manager of my property. Mahalo

Impeccably maintained, ideally situated

My husband and I stayed here for four nights this past week. We had such a wonderful experience! Susan is so nice and helpful to work with. The property is located in a fantastic spot in Kapaa, just across the bike path from the beach. The condo itself is absolutely lovely. Susan clearly makes a lot of effort to keep it in great condition and has many wonderful extra touches, from kitchen supplies to beach equipment. We loved staying here and will be back!

Beautiful island.....Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong booking this condo from Susan. Everything is right at your fingertips for a wonderful vacation. By staying on the east side of the island, at Pono Kai, you are centrally located. I would highly recommend booking this condo.

Outstanding place to stay. Very well equipped and wonderful view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Room A306 at Pono Kai is a real treat. Susan Allyn, the owner, is very conscientious and made herself available if we needed anything. We lacked for nothing because the condo is so well equipped. The kitchen was set up so that you never knew you left home (assuming that your home kitchen is well equipped). We spent every morning on the porch or in the living room watching a spectacular sunrise. While others gathered on the beach below, we only had to look out the glass door. The staff at Pono Kai are extremely friendly and do a great job of keeping up the grounds. After watching the sunrise, we spent every morning with a dip in the spa. What a refreshing, renewing experience we had.

We really liked the Kapaa area also. With many of the local residents around, it gives you a real feel for living in Hawaii. If you are looking for a country club atmosphere, this probably is not for you - head to Princeville. Our experience of sitting in the open air venue at the Olympic Cafe, having a Mai Tai, will long persist in our memory. The best part is that it is only a 5 minute walk along the beach from Susan's condo.

Great experience, great accommodations and highly recommended. We slept in the bedroom only one night. The small air conditioner in the room worked very well and was needed at the time of our stay. After the first night, we chose to take the memory foam pad off the bed and put it on the fold out couch to spend the night. We preferred opening the patio door and hearing the ocean all night rather than the A/C. Just be careful because the weather changes quickly and rain can blow through the door if it is open. This only happened to us once.

The refreshing wind coming off the ocean was wonderful. We found that propping the entry door open and opening the patio door allowed a wonderful cooling of the condo as the breeze blew through. Again, pay attention to the weather because the rain comes quickly and seems to leave just as fast.

Thanks Susan for sharing your wonderful little slice of heaven with us. We really enjoyed our visit and we just love Kauai. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! My last review was somewhat unfavorable and you just proved them wrong with their only non-5 star review in the 10+ years I have been renting my condo. I appreciate that fact that you recognized that I try and make every guest comfortable and am a hands on manager. I hope you get to return in the future. I value my repeat guests and give them a 10% discount off of the published rate. Susan
