About Dean May

Glenda and I have been married for 37 years and are now retired which really gives us time to travel and do the things we never had time before.

Dean May purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dean May chose Kapaa

On our first visit to Hawaii, we fell in love with it. We decided to purchase a condo so that we could visit as often as we wanted.

What makes this condo unique

The Pono Kai resort is located in the village of Kapaa and is contently located about equal distance from the rainy North side of the Kauai and the dry South side. In addition, Kapaa offers shopping, dining and night life within each walking distance from the resort. There is also a public walking/bike path that passes in front of the Pono Kai resort and follows the beach for about 23 miles with breath taking views along the way.

A little late in writing the review, but we had a wonderful time once again. We have stayed in this unit multiple times, and each time we are amazed by the latest improvements. We love the step-in shower. The unit is very clean, and has every comfort you might expect.
Our trip would never be complete without a visit to the Hukilau restaurant for their tasting menu. You will enjoy the view and your vacation experience.

Another Month in Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
We just spent a month at this lovely condo. The Pono Kai is very well maintained and is centrally located. It is walking distance to shopping and restaurants and is situated on the walking/bicycle path that follows the coastline for several miles. It’s an easy, scenic walk or you can rent a bike next door and just cruise. The condo has everything you need and then some. Brenda, the housekeeper / handyperson / vacation facilitator etc., is a wealth of information. She has lived on Kauai her entire life and is full of interesting information about the island and is more than happy to answer questions. Everything was clean and well maintained. We never adjusted to the time change and were up every morning at 6 to have coffee on the lanai and watch the sunrise. We have stayed at the Pono Kai before but this was the first time in this unit. It was our favorite. A couple of new discoveries we made this trip were the Anahola Cafe and the Anahola Farmers Market, both of which had good lunches and are well worth the 5 minute drive. Anini beach park is nice but if you continue past the park, the road dead ends at a quiet little protected beach with plenty of close parking. Over the years we have done most of the tourist attractions but this trip saw one that we hadn't tried. The Kipu Ranch Adventure was a "must do" for all ages. You get the opportunity to see areas of the island only accessible via ATV. Check reviews on Yelp or Tripadvisor for Kipu Ranch, the Anahola Cafe, and the Anahola Farmers Market for more details.

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay in this beautiful condo!, very clean and so comfortable! Whether you just sit on the lanai and watch the ocean or leave every day on a new adventure, you won't be disappointed. The condo is well appointed with everything you might need. It is centrally located, so you are never far from any destination. We enjoyed visiting the local sunshine markets. The tasting dinner at the Hukilau is fabulous, paired with excellent wines! We miss having our monrning coffee and fresh papaya on the lanai. Something to look forward to for next year!

Fantastic Choice

  • 5 out of 5
I did a lot of research before this trip as to what island to visit, when to go, where to stay and I am happy to say, this was a fantatic choice! The owners are great to work with and the condo had everything we could possibly need.

The resort grounds are clean and quiet. Pictures really don't do them justice! The location is wondering. Loved the walking/bike path, great places to eat within walking distance (loved the fish taco wagon on the beach!) and lots of great shops with freindly owners (personal fav was Hula Girl!)

This condo had privacy since it was on the third floor and offered a great view of the ocean. How wonderful to hear and see the ocean in the morning when having our coffee and in the evening with a glass of wine after a day at the many beaches on the island.

I will recommend this condo to all my friends and family! I hope to stay here again too!

Good but not great

  • 3 out of 5
We spent a month in Kauai the island has a lot of beauty , so when here go out and see it all.
This condo was in a good location to go to all sides of the island.
Dean the owner was great to deal with and all questions were dealt with.
We felt the complex was nice but in January the pool should be heated, the weather is cooler then expected with many days of high winds and cloud.
Deans condo fit our needs very well, the only problem was not enough cutlery and dishes to have any guests over for dinner, our sister and brother I law were staying in same complex so. Would switch nights for dinner and had to constantly be washing dishes.
The ice maker did not work very well and the stove is getting a little worn.
But the bed was so comfortable so we tried not to sweat the small stuff, also could have supplied better beach chairs as hard to use such small ones.
The manager at the complex was great but front staff not to interested as we were private renters.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are always happy to hear from our guests. In response to your comments concerning the cutlery and dishes, we do have place settings for eight in our condo. Considering we have a maximum occupancy of four and normally accommodate two, we feel that the eight place settings are sufficient. Yes, you might have to wash dishes often but that is what the dish washer is for and we do provide free dish washer soap. Yes, the stove is showing its age but as it turns out, we are planning on replacing the stove on April 16, 2013 so future guests will have a new stove for their use. And I was a little surprised about the comment on the beach chairs because we do not provide beach chairs for our guests. However, whenever we spend time in our condo to take care of the little things that need attention, we notice that previous guests have sometimes left us with things. I am sorry the beach chairs were not to your liking but we had nothing to do with them. Glenda and I try to make our condo as comfortable as possible so our guests will have a relaxing and wonderful time on Kauai.

Pono Kai Condo

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 2nd time returning to this beautiful condo. The owners have made even more improvements since our last stay. They've stocked it with everything we could have possibly needed and it was very clean. The sound of the ocean waves and the beautiful sunrise each morning make me miss it already, and we've only been home 2 days. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and 3 grocery stores in Kapaa, if you feel like cooking. Wireless internet was free and you don't have to pack as many clothes 'cause we had access to washers and dryers. The entire complex has many things to do and they keep the place up continuously. I strongly recommend staying here.
