Open the patio door and immediately feel the ocean breeze from the trade winds and smell the fresh salt-water air! The next morning you will awaken to the warm glow of sunrise. You can sit on the lanai with your first cup of coffee and enjoy the boat traffic from the river right next to the building. You are also located right on the walking/bike path called Ke Ala Hele Makalae ('the path that goes by the coast') that will eventually go from Nawiliwili to Anahola. During season you will see whales breaching from your lanai. You now know what paradise feels like.

You will find your condo A306 on the top floor in the Beautiful Pono Kai Resort with 12 acres of meticulously manicured grounds in addition to koi ponds and amenities listed below. It is in the historic town of Kapaa, centrally located on the East Side of Kauai, it is convenient to all of the Garden Isle attractions, only 15 minutes from Lihue Airport and walking distance from many restaurants, grocery, and fun shops and stores.

The condo is on the 3rd floor, within steps of the elevator. Being on the top floor, it’s private, there is no over-head noise ... just the sound of the gentle sound of the ocean surf. FREE Wi-Fi interenet service is provided. It features a washer/dryer in the unit, which is an unusual feature on-site. 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. You will rest at ease with a hotel bed concept where all linens are laundered between guests! Enjoy your first pot of complimentary coffee, and if you plan on cooking spices are available. Many more amenities you will not find in other condos!

About The Owner

I’m a flight attendant with 30 years travel experience. I know the special things that make a stay away from home comfortable and will provide you with a clean environment for you to relax and enjoy this beautiful island of which I am a resident. I am sure that your stay will be memorable, and will provide you with my cell phone number if you have any questions or concerns.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kauai

This a very centrally located resort, you will arrive at your sightseeing destination within 45 minutes of car travel, excluding Waimea canyon and the west side which takes about 1 hour 15 mins. Pono Kai is a well maintained and respected resort condo complex with years of operating experience. It is located right in the heart of charming Kapaa town, with restaurants and shopping within one block. I live here year round and I also live in Kapaa. Kapaa is a real local town with very friendly residents and with more of a laid back feeling than other areas of the Island.

What makes this condo unique

Pono Kai Resort has the following: * 24 hour Front Desk * Accessible beach access * Barbecue Facilities * Exercise Room * Free Parking * Full service concierge desk * Golf putting greens * Hawaiian Herb garden that you make pick your fresh herbs for dinner * Jacuzzi & Sauna's * Security * Swimming Pool * Lit Tennis Courts with racquets/availability permitting * Basketball/Shuffleboard Courts * Weekly Island orientation with complimentary coffee & pastries

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

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. I've never stayed in a unit that had EVERYTHING you needed. Even down to spices and beach towels. Perfectly clean. Layout of unit was great. The view from the balcony and even the living room was wonderful ( we had added bonus of full moon). We did get a little warm in the bedroom ( there was an a/c unit in there).....but I can say the same thing about our Atlanta home. Not uncomfortable at all though. Great location going north and south. Close to airport which made things a snap

Beautiful location but lacking in comfort

  • 3 of 5

The location was picture perfect but unfortunately the property was not. Our unit lacked the comfort we expected - with shabby sheets and towels, a very uncomfortable bed, and a barely functioning portable AC. While stocked with dishes, beach towels and other useful items, there was no extra toilet paper.

Owner's Response: With over 100+ 5 star reviews since Sept 2010, I was sad to receive this review. I try very hard to provide a well maintained, clean comfortable home for my guests while they are on vacation. I am a hand's on manager living only 5 minutes from the condo and make regular inspections of the property.The bed is firm and in new condition with a memory foam topper that can be removed. The air conditioning unit is new this year and meant to provide comfort at night for sleeping, not to replace the trades during the day and cool the entire condo. The linens are well maintained and replaced when needed. I provide the initial paper products(3-4 rolls of TP), soaps and many more amenities for your stay. Please read all of my previous reviews to judge for yourself. This only goes to prove that you can not please everyone! I am happy that everyone else has enjoyed their stay at my condo.

Everything was great! The unit was clean and beautifully decorated with comfort in mind. We didn't want for a thing! Susan was the perfect host, being available but not hovering. Thank you for helping to make our 20th anniversary special and memorable! We will be back.

The perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Front row seats to the most amazing view one could imagine! Susan's condo was nothing short of AMAZING. Third floor, Ocean front, full kitchen, (including dishwasher) laundry, very comfortable queen size bed & bedroom and clean, very clean. The condo is simply great. We stayed for 12 nights, but after the 1st, we felt "at home" it was comfortable, relaxed and we didn't feel like we were in someone else home. That is the best feeling one could have. Check-in was breeze, the grounds are amazing, the location is spot on. We rented a jeep and never had an issue parking (which is complementary) The safe in the condo is nice added bonus, though we never, ever felt unsafe. My Husband loves to cook and never once said "darn she doesn't have "blank" Susan has thought of everything. Every.single.thing. All in all we had the most amazing honeymoon on the island of Kauai, memories and photos that will last a lifetime! Sunset Helicopter tours, hikes in the canyon, sleeping Giant, snorkeling, kayaking and waterfalls.... everywhere, bike riding, the list goes on and on! We must say, Susan's condo played the most important part our honeymoon! Thank you Susan, Thank YOU! PS. We have already recommend the condo to friends of ours..... Sincerely, M & D
