About The Owner

Will and Joan Nord are Napa Valley residents and purchased the condominium to enjoy a little alone time, as well as special times with family and friends. As grape growers and with their own private label, they have remained stewards of the land fostering organic growing. Their daughters and husbands join them in the business and now Will and Joan spend time enjoying their 5 grandchildren and sneaking away from time to time to Kapaa. They are please to share their condominium with you and are sure will also enjoy your stay. They also hope you enjoy a bottle of their own private label, which they provide for each rental period.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1997

Why The Owner chose Kauai

We fell in love with its small town feel and the sound of the ocean waves caressing us as we relax in our living room or on the lanai. We love the relaxed, beautiful 12 acre setting and we wanted to choose quieter, cleaner, greener Kauai after visits to Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. We share the condominium with family and friends as well as folks looking for a Hawaiian getaway place to rent. We have a number of repeat renters who have also found our little gem to be most relaxing, with a fantastic location and amenities and unbelievable views and sunsets (and sunrises if you awaken early enough :-)

What makes this condo unique

Kapaa is a friendly town with unlimited activities for everyone. From great shopping to sunshine, we have it. Grab a cup of coffee and homemade bread or macadamia nut sweet rolls at the local bakery. Enjoy shaved ice and an open air markets where locals shop for crafts, fresh local produce and sweets. Take a quiet walk along the beach or enjoy the ammenities of the condominium association or head out to the ocean to swim, surf or snorkel. Take an outing, golf, hike, four wheel, scuba, kayak, hula, sail, rest and then play again! Or stay home and BBQ the fresh catch of the day.

This was our second time staying at the Nord's condo. We loved it so much the first time, it was a no brainer to come back and celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. This condo is the perfect location to explore the island of Kauai and Kapa'a Town. Love this place! Will definitely be coming back.

The condo is in a perfect location. It was very clean and well stocked. I did call the manager with some questions and never got a call back. I would return to this place.

Pretty close to Perfect

One of the best locations on the island with shops and restaurants easy walk. Very comfortable. Views amazing, with waterfront walkway directly in front of building. 3rd floor breezes wonderful. Extra loft room upstairs with more beds, blankets and pillows a big plus. It's also where you will find the library. Upgraded bathroom is VERY well done, loved the shower and the big cotton towels. Extra towels, tp and soap a thoughtful plus. Kitchen basic but adequate: Desperately needs a knife sharpener. The only noteworthy shortcoming was the dreadfully slow WiFi. You can pay daily for more speed, but top tier speed still painfully slow. A dedicated internet connection (Call Oceanic Time-Warner, put a splitter behind the TV, add a modem) would make this a slam dunk 5 star Condo. This was our 8th trip to Kauai using VRBO properties, so these observations are not based unfairly on mainland expectations.

Great ocean location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We loved both the location and condition of this condo. The ocean view really is beautiful, and we spent a lot of time on the lanai watching the water and listening to the waves. The elevator situated just a few steps away from the front door made the condo easily accessible. This was our first visit to Kauai, and the central Kapaa location was perfect for exploring both ends of the island.

Very nice unit

  • 3 of 5

Having stayed at the Pona Kai in the past, we found this unit to be pleasant. With no air conditioning and between trying to find the balance of leaving the rear lanai door open to prevent water from rain, it can be very warm inside. At times the fans were not sufficient. Other points to mention is that if you are looking to stay in communication with internet WiFi its location is beyond miserable. To maintain a solid connection, it was necessary to go down to the pool or front lobby. This should not be the case. Another item to mention is though the advertisement stated a complimentary bottle of wine would be provided, it was not. Other than a single bar of soap, their were not any toiletries in the bathroom.

Owner's Response: We are sorry the rental manager forgot to leave the bottle of wine however we understand when the mistake was caught he brought the bottle to you. If this is not correct and if you would like to provide me your home address we would be pleased to ship the bottle to you. As most units do not have air conditioners we are sorry during your stay that the rain and weather at times resulted in it being warm inside. Thank you for mentioning the lack of soap supplies. While the unit is fully furnished and even includes some items for the beach the owner elects to not leave personal choice toiletries as most renters pack their own. To help prevent this confusion we have updated the listing. We also mention that WIFi is not provided in the unit however can be found in the lobby area of the complex. We hope your will consider staying with us in the future. Thank you, Jeanette
