About Owner

We bought are first timeshare at Pono Kai 8 years ago and fell in love with the resort and location. We dreamed of spending a major portion of our retirement on Kauai and bought 6 weeks of timeshare over the years.

Finally, our real dream came true when we were able to purchase one of the few privately owned units at the resort. We still own 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom and one week in a 1 bedroom with a loft timeshare so we can share our love with friends and family.

Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Owner chose Kauai

This is truly paradise to us. KAUAI..a well maintained resort.....a beautiful condo on the ocean...close to everything we need. We don't even need to drive if we couldn't or didn't want to. What more could you ask for?

What makes this condo unique

The benefits of Pono Kai C102 include all the favorite activities and places that we, our friends and family enjoy: Smith Family Luau, helicopter tours, snorkeling on the Napali Coast, golf at the many close golf courses, Waimea Canyon, picnics at Lydgate Park, walks along the pedistrian path, sunrises on our lanai, and sunsets on the balcony at the St. Regis, Princeville. Kauai offers many incredible photographic opportunities. This is the perfect central location to explore the entire island. Location..Location...Location

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend eight weeks at Pono Kai C102, early 2013. The unit is beautifully furnished and has a well-stocked kitchen with good quality cookware. Being a corner unit the extra window gives added light and it feels very open. It is also very clean and well looked after.



Pono Kai C102 also comes with the most beautiful sun-rises we have ever seen. We are looking forward to our return next year.

Relax in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to relax and unwind. The unit is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Everything to make your stay enjoyable has been thought of. The furniture on the lanai are so comfortable, the footstools add a nice touch. We spent hours sitting on the lanai, watching the ocean, the fishing boats come and go, and enjoying the pleasant trade winds. The barbeque is located close enough to the unit, that it was fun to grill out almost daily. We will be back next year.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you found the condo relaxing and the lanai comfortable. The unit's ocean front location does allow for full advantage of the trade winds. These winds come from the northeast and contribute to Kauai's moderate temperatures. They derive their name from the fact that in days gone by ships used them when sailing their trade routes. The gas grills located around the property are part of the amenities provided by Pono Kai Resort. Other amenities include a pool, hot tub, saunas, tennis courts, putting greens, bocce court, shuffleboard, volleyball area and workout rooms. We thank you for your review and look forward to your return.

what more can I say?

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Sha have said it all! I'm not the greatest typist so I will ditto what they said a hundred fold!!! we had a wonderful stay. I have never slept so good. Must have been the bed and no stress. We enjoyed being able to walk to everything in town and being a short drive from the attractions we visited.

I was delighted to find out that there are 3 consignment stores in the area. Hated to leave and can'tg believe that it's over. Mahalo for a wonderful stay'

Owner's Response: So glad that you had a wonderful stay and mahalo for your review. It is a great advantage to have so many restaurants and shops within walking distance. For those who enjoy shopping, Kauai's Kukui Grove Shopping Center in Lihu'e has had several new shops added during the past year. Guests also have enjoyed the local dishes served in the Center's restaurants as well as, those at eateries in walking distance from Pono Kai. The resort's location on the east side of the island does allow for easy access to the many attractions both on the north and south shores--and an added bonus is the beautiful sunrises.

Great Value. Wonderful Location. A Little Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Kathleen's beautiful condo and cannot praise it enough.

The Pono Kai resort is beautifully maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful.

The location is idyllic. This is ocean front and the view is sensational. You can basically swim directly out the front. If you like to walk then the walking path(also located out the front) allows you to explore the local area for miles and there are some wonderful vistas along the way. Also there are a variety of restaurants, supermarkets and specialty stores within walking distance. Its location at Kapaa is central and you can easily explore the island's north and southern shores from this location.

The unit itself is clean and well maintained. The air conditioning works well but struggles to get to the bed room however, Kathleen makes up for this by providing abundant fans as well as the ceiling fans (also the cool trade winds have a wonderful effect). The kitchen is large and exceptionally well equipped with every appliance and gadget you can think of.

The bathroom is clean and has a bath tub with the shower in it. There was a generous provision of towels, beach towels and a bathroom starter pack.

In addition, there was beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, fishing rods and boogie boards. The in room safe was also useful.

If you needed to wash your clothes, the laundry was 10 metres away and had efficient coin operated washers and dryers.

Also, the Wi Fi worked exceptionally well and allowed you to keep in contact with the outside world. Finally the cable TV had many channels to view and worked well.

The photos do not tell any lies. This is a great unit and I hope to be able to get back to it again in the near future. Kathleen, the owner is helpful and speedily replied to any emails.

A little gem!!!!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for your review. Having the ocean so close to the unit is an amazing experience. Guests never tire of its varied beauty throughout the day and during the various times of the year. This year whales swam by earlier than usual. They historically come between December and May. Pono Kai Resort's location makes whatever type of activity one enjoys, from zip lining to sitting on the beach, within an easy distance. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to your return to Kauai in the near future.

Great location and comfy home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in an excellent location. Its steps away from the 5 mile paved path by the shore. You can enjoy great ocean breeze while getting your workout. It's also close to a lot of eating places. Some accessible right from the path by the shore. The condo is very nice - has cozy furniture and is tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. You get great ocean breeze into the living room. It also has A/C if it gets too hot. We had great weather so we didn't need to use it.

The resort grounds are kept impeccably. We would've preferred for this to be on the second floor but we didn't miss anything at all. It was just an awesome vacation. Our thanks to the owner.

Owner's Response: Being in an ocean front condo gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful and cooling trade winds both on the lanai and inside the condo. Pono Kai Resort’s location does give easy access to the shops and the many and varied restaurants/coffee houses of Kapa’a Town (only 0.9 mile north). Many other amenities also are nearby. The unit is in walking distance to grocery stores, a health food store, the post office, library and a medical clinic. We are happy that you had an awesome vacation and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review.

Owner's Response: We would be very happy to have you return to Pono Kai C102. It is a plus to have a resort where the front desk is open 24 hours a day.

Comfortable, clean condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days in the condo. It is exactly as advertised except that the pictures of the ocean view do not give it justice. It well located in Kapaa but yet quiet. We liked the close proximity to a sandy beach (a two-minute walk) and hearing the ocean from the lanai. The kitchen was well stocked. And the condo was very clean. Highly recommended

Owner's Response: The sights and sounds from the lanai are a favorite memory for many of our guests. So glad that you enjoyed the nearby sandy beach. On Kauai, there are 113 miles of shoreline and 50 of those miles are sand beaches. Mahalo for your review!
