Our recent stay at Pono Kai Resort

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at Susan's unit A101 at Pono Kai! Everything about the unit was as promised. The ocean and bike/walking trail just outside our door made our visit even more enjoyable. We enjoyed our experience so much that we booked again for next year. mahalo, Susan!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 11th Christmas in Hawaii, and Susan's condo stands out as one of the best experiences we have had. The location was perfect; being able to walk out to the beach or in to town made it easy for us to get around without having to drive everywhere. As other reviewer's have noted, the condo is stocked with pretty much everything you can think of - we cook most meals in so having a well equipped kitchen is a definite plus for me. Using rosemary, chives and basil growing in the herb garden, along with finding olive oil and such in the condo made our grocery bill somewhat smaller.

I also appreciated the heated pool - even in Hawaii, an unheated pool is too cold for me! My husband liked to walk the path along the beach every morning, while our two teenage kids played tennis and used the pool and hot tub a number of times - it was nice having those amenities on site, to fill in the times we weren't out adventuring around the island. All in all a great place to stay!

Best of the Bunch!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had it all! Including, get this-- it was right next to a Pokemon stop. My kids loved it!The unit is very well maintained and equipped. The washer/dryer and bedroom A/C units were a saving grace. Because of a tropical storm the weather was unusually humid and we would not have survived a night without that, which apparently is rare at Pono Kai. We celebrated a family reunion utilizing 4 different beach front units and 2 of those were owned by Susan and by far much nicer than the others. The key code locks were also very convenient as we had no worries about the kids loosing or forgetting keys. The location was walking distance to shopping, dining, and directly on the ocean with beach (although not one of the life guarded beaches) and a 4 mile walking/bike path. Susan is a local islander herself and truly a professional vacation rental owner. Every aspect of our stay, from initial inquiries to deposit refund, was beyond our expectations. I highly recommend!

Paradise and comfort by the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What a beautiful condo and what an amazing experience! We have rented various places on Kauai and by far and away, this condo and our experience with the owner was the BEST we've ever had! The owner was flexible, attentive/responsive, and really truly has created a place for families/couples to stay that feels like HOME. We actually did not need to bring much because it was so well stocked - from sunscreen to spices to beach mats, and almost everything in between, we were thrilled with all the "extras" that made our stay so much nicer and easier. (Next time, we will definitely bring less.)

The condo itself was immaculately clean with very nice decorative touches throughout the entire unit. It has a beautiful, open layout that all of our friends thought was awesome (and some of them were staying at a "fancy" resort....). Overall, we had an amazing time and would love to stay there again. From the stunning view of the ocean, being a corner unit, and just the overall "home" feel because it was so well stocked with basic items that allowed us to cook, clean, and otherwise go about our days effortlessly, this place was AMAZING!

Pono Kai is an awesome resort with so many things to do too! From the pool to shuffle board and all the other fun lawn games they had available - we loved every second. Oh - and barbecues all over the grounds? So great! We loved being able to barbecue some meals and have a nice hang out with friends. (The staff at Pono Kai were great too!) Pono Kai was also very close to so many of the great shops/restaurants we love. Being walking distance to Javai Kai was GREAT!!! (or should I say, ONO!) The condo itself is super close to the walking path that runs along the ocean, so again, just a spectacular location no matter how you look at it. I cannot say enough good things!!

Just an amazing vacation overall, and I know that staying here was a HUGE and vital part of what made our vacation an amazing one. Thank you Pono Kai Girl - you are awesome!! Can't wait to come back!

Kapaa Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in Kapa'a with my sister and cousins. The condo is very spacious and well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, games, snorkels and beach supplies. The location is ideal being so close to the beach, bike and running paths and downtown Kapa'a. It is only a short drive to both the north and south side of Kauai. The condo was great for four people and I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Susan for everything!
