About Bryan

We have seven children and 15 grandchildren. Farrah and Rachel (our daughters) manage the rentals for us and will do everything possible to make your Kauai visit a wonderful experience.

Bryan purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bryan chose Kauai

We love Kauai and especially Kapaa and Pono Kai. Our kids love to come vacation here year after year. We always find something new on the island. There are truly 101 things to do!!! We have purchased and furnished THREE beautiful condos for rental and personal use.

What makes this condo unique

The ocean and beach are just steps away. The grounds are meticulously manicured. The 5 mile biking/walking path goes in front of our condo and up and down the island for awesome morning and evening rides/walks. The condo is centrally located on the island (Kapaa) so driving time is minimized. Great restaurants and activities abound all over and we can mingle with the locals and not feel stampeded by tourists. Perfect Hawaiian experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bryan-I don't even know how to begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Hawaii I don't think I told you before, but the purpose of the trip was to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Your condo is so wonderful and we all agreed that Kauai was the favorite island of the two. We covered most all of the island, and were treated to some very special activities and sites. The cousin of our friend lives in Waimea, and she spent a day showing us things the average tourist would never have seen. We also took the helicopter tour and that was a highlight! We sure found it to be very comfortable and perfectly located. I could go on, but I really just wanted to thank you for allowing us to make Kauai such a memorable trip for us. Our best, Duane and Nardi Jones

The grounds are beautifully maintained and had a lot of open space! At first we were concerned because we had not realized there is no air conditioning but it really is no big deal once you open the windows and let that great ocean breeze in! The owner was helpful and accommodating to our needs! We enjoyed our stay!

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is situated within a larger complex but the facility seems private as it is located in a corner at ground level. The sliders and windows are showing their age and can be awkward to open and close. The WiFi in the rooms is sketchy at best, but very clear in the lobby area. The dishes and glasses where replaced by Larry who took care of some concerns promptly and is aware that some updating is required. The rooms where clean and spacious. There is a pool, hot tub, mini golf, horseshoe pits, croquette, tennis, and bouche ball courts on the grounds.

We enjoyed the facility and its easy walking distance to the town of Kapa and paved beach walkway along the beaches.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nancy. You are the perfect guest!!! We so much appreciate you notifying us about the glasses and cups that were missing. As we are not on the Island (wish we were), it is so very helpful when our guests contact us immediately so we can make your stay as pleasant and carefree as possible. Mahalo!! Bryan and Arden

First time to Kauai

  • 4 of 5

I had such an enjoyable time at this condo. It was everything my family needed. It was spacious and we loved that it was on the ground floor as the kids were able to play outside on the grass. It is less than a minute to walk to the beach. And often there was no one else at the beach. It felt like our own private beach. The pool and jacuzzi were also great. I would definitely come back to this particular condo. We were very comfortable in it. Having a kitchen, laundry, and tv made it feel like home. Also I really appreciated the beach chairs and sand toys for use in the condo. A big plus for kids. I hope to come back next year.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Bryan's two bedroom/two bath unit for five weeks in march/april 2015.

Our son,his wife and our two grandchildren joined us for two weeks.

The resort has numerous amenities including tennis,putting green,bocce,croquet,pool,hot tub as well as a coy fish pond.The grandchildren fed the coy fish daily.

The ocean and walking,biking,running trail were both a short two minute walk from our door.

Centrally located in Kapaa,walking distance to grocery stores,restaurants and shopping.

We hiked Sleeping Giant and the Napali coast as well as other short hikes.

We Kayaked the Wailua river to secret falls and visited Waimea canyon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We experienced a minor medical issue at the end of our vacation and Bryan and family were extremely supportive and helpful.Thank you so much Bryan.

Kauai and Pon Kai will be at the top of our list in the future.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as it appears in the description and the photos. The owner was easily accessible and responded timely to all e-mails from the first inquiry about availability until I received my deposit back once we returned to Ohio. We were even kept in the loop about a new range being installed prior to our arrival. The condo was very clean and located right along the beach. It was just a short walk to a nice walking/bike path that runs along the ocean, which is a great place to watch the sun rise. There are several local restaurants within walking distance (including one with all-day happy hour) and grills available to those staying at the resort. At the front desk you can check out equipment for croquet and shuffleboard free of charge. This specific condo provided towels, beach chairs, beach toys, and a washer/dryer. We comfortably slept 5 people in this condo and it was an excellent choice for a family vacation. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Kauai.

beware of which one you are renting!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in the garden view condo (one of the three of this owner's in the resort) and it was in appalling condition.

The carpets were stained and dirty, the couches and chairs were worn out, lumpy and very dirty. The windows were rusty and could barely be opened. The sliding glass door and screen could barely be opened and were a pain every time to get in and out of the condo. The fridge was rusty on the outside and froze food on the inside. The oven was rusty on the inside, the broil element hung down, the temperature gauge was in the drawer and had to be stuck on to get a temperature setting. The glasses, dishes and cutlery were all old, cloudy and mismatched. The sheets and blankets were old and suspect, the pillows were flat. The beds were old, saggy and lumpy. Using the dryer seemed to bring all the wet air into the condo instead of outside the condo. There was no air conditioning and while the fans were good they would not be able to keep up if there was temperatures above 25 degrees (celsius). The TV was old. There were chickens everywhere and the roosters crowed constantly (bring earplugs unless you like getting up at 4:45am). They needed to be culled.

The location was fine, the amenities were good (pool, tennis courts etc.), there was a nice beach and great walking path only minutes away. The location was central to the whole island although there were times in the day we could not leave the resort because of traffic gridlock on the street in front of the resort. There was free wifi of sorts, it would lock you out if you tried to download anything and you would have to sign in every time you wanted to use it.

This condo had a great layout and size but was 10 years past being outdated and needs to be completely renovated.

Buyer beware.

Owner's Response: We have taken note of the issues mentioned here. Smiths are right about the carpet. We were aware the carpets were stained by a guest that proceeded them in the condo and placed throw rugs over the stains. We had to wait until we could coordinate the replacement of the carpet with our bookings and the carpet supplier's schedule and new carpet has been installed. We have inspected the condo and have replaced the range because the knobs were broken etc It is unfortunate that we are just now (Feb.) hearing about these additiional issues from December as we take pride in addressing the issues with guests immediately while they are staying with us. The sliding door was off its track and was adjusted. Any metal in condos close to the ocean does rust, so it is not unusual to find it and we do constant maintenance. We have enjoyed great reviews earlier in the year. (See below) And, although we are saddened to have received this review, we take it seriously and are attending to each criticism. Unfortunately, we can't do anything about the wildlife on the Island. Chickens and Roosters are a part of the Kauai experience. The history as to why there are so many is fascinating. Google it.
