Pono Kai Resort

The condo is within the beautiful Pono Kai Resort which is along the Coconut Coast of Kauai in Kapaa Town. Pono Kai is on 12 acres of manicured tropical grounds You know you have arrived in PARADISE when you walk through the resort and see the lush tropical plantings and the many tall coco palms. The resort features a large, beautiful swimming pool and spa, lighted tennis courts, and activities desk and a 24-hour front desk as well as the other amenities like a workout equipment room, croquet and shuffleboard courts, as well as other amenities that are listed below. Island restaurants and shopping are within walking distance of your beach vacation condo. Free parking is just outside your elevator equipped building.

Kapaa Town

The Pono Kai resort is in historic Kapaa Town on the east side of Kauai island. Located just eight miles from the Lihue airport, Kapaa is a laid back island community that is perfectly located as a base for your exploration of the island PARADISE that is Kauai. Kapaa has many restaurants and quaint island shops which are within easy walking distance of your beach vacation condo. The East Shore of Kauai enjoys better weather than the North Shore (Princeville) and is not as remote as the South Shore (Poipu). You'll love Kapaa's convenient, central location as your springboard to your own Kauai Island sightseeing adventure!

Beach Vacation Condo

The 1 bedroom/1 bath condo (A-305) is on the 3rd (top) floor of the building, just down the hall from the elevator. Being on the top floor affords more privacy and security, less noise and absolutely fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean and beach just outside the condo. Free parking is just outside the building. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a full size sofa-bed in the living room. The condo sleeps up to 4 (3 adults max). Tastefully decorated in an island nautical theme, the condo is very well maintained by it's mainland owner who visits 3-4 times a year. A remodeled, fully equipped kitchen, including dishwasher, makes it easy for those guests who want to do their own cooking. 'The kitchen remodel included new cabinets, granite countertops and most appliances. Complimentary WiFi internet service is provided to my guests. The unit has a hotel type safe for the security of the guests valuables. While the condo is not air conditioned (typical for privately owned residences on Kauai) the ocean breezes and the overhead fans usually keep the condo comfortable both day and night all year round. You will love relaxing on the condo lanai (patio) with your favorite drink, feeling the gentle ocean breezes and watching and hearing each new ocean wave come to shore!

There is local property management representation (Garden Island Properties, 808 822-4871) to quickly address any concerns during your stay.

About Craig Dunn

I have owned this condo since 1999. While I live in Southern California, I have a local property manager on Kauai who will be responsive to your concerns. I visit Kauai, my favorite place in the world, 3 or 4 times a year and never tire of exploring the island. I endeavor to surprise and delight the guests in my condo by providing a clean and comfortable environment for you to get into the 'island mode' and enjoy your vacation in paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Kauai since 1988 for vacations and now that we are semi-retired, we have been spending our winters here. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovelly, beautifully furnished condo. We especially love the nautical motif, but the best part of all is how the ocean seem like an extension of the living room; how calming is the sound of the waves. We love to sit and watch spouting whales. Especially beautiful is the full moon over the water. Just fantastic! Mahalo, we hope to come back and stay here again!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Pono Kai. The location in Kapaa is perfect and convenient being walking distance from downtown. We also loved being right on the walking/biking trail, one of our favorite morning activities! My husband and I stayed before getting married on Kauai and the extra space was very nice. Everything was well kept and the owner Craig was very prompt when answering any questions. The condo had pretty much everything you need from pool towels to a safe and the newly added air conditioner for the bedroom was well appreciated. We will miss the balcony view for sure!

Nonstop Ocean Sounds

  • 5 of 5

Well, it's true that if you rent this condo and keep the slider to the lanai open you will hear the soothing sounds of the ocean nonstop. This condo is within 50 feet of the beach and that is one of its best points. Also, it doesn't hurt that the condo also has all of the conveniences of home---flatscreen TV, cable, dishwasher, very comfortable bed, and it's very clean. And, Craig is a very cooperative owner. The toaster wasn't working and Craig had it replaced while we were there---thanks for that. Craig also supplied us with restaurant reviews, beach chairs, and his favorite Hawaiian music. The condo has no AC except for the bedroom. That is no problem as long as the Trade Winds are blowing. In fact, with the slider and bedroom windows open papers will be flying all over the condo. And, then there's the tranquility of those oceans sounds. My wife and I were totally pleased with this rental.

A beautiful and functional condo with an amazing view over the sea and a large lanai to enjoy it

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this very nice condo. The view over the ocean (without any obstruction, as pictured on the site) is amazing and the balcony is spacious. There is a table and 4 chairs, plus a long chair on the lanai, which allowed us the enjoy it very often. We were a family of four (2 adults and 2 children of 8 and 11) and we had just anough space. The bedroom, situated at the back of the condo, got hot during the day in July, but for those hot months, Craig had put to our disposition a portable air conditioning unit for the bedroom. Although a bit noisy, it was just perfect to cool the bedroom and allow us to sleep well. The kids slept well in the living room with the air from the sea and the fan. The resort is very nice, as described by the owner, and centrally located to explore both the north and south shores of the island. The communications with Craig were very easy and we got reimbursement of our deposit very quickly. We would not hesitate to come back again. The only things we missed are BBQ utensils and a bodybord surf, but we left our board for the next guests. Mahalo Craig for sharing your condo and for all the info provided!!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful condo in a beautiful location. Nothing but positive things to say about the condo and working with Craig. Very easy to work with and added some great touches to the whole experience (sending info about the island and even a Hawaiian music CD). The view was amazing and the sunrise every morning really added to our trip.

Overall, I can't recommend this condo enough. Don't hesitate to book if you are looking for a central location on the island with a beautiful ocean view.

Great stay in Kapaa

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my short stay in your condominium. Beautifully appointed but the best part was the gorgeous view and watching the sun come up in the morning. Great communication and fast refund of damage deposit.

Incredible Condo with an Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at the Pono Kai. Craig is the best host we have ever had in all the rentals that we have rented. He treated us like family. A good guy who is definitely a people person.

This condo was exactly what we wanted. The location is fantastic and we mostly walked into town for meals and shopping. Kapaa is a really fun town and we like staying there when we go on excursions to other parts of the island. The view from the balcony is awesome and listening to the ocean is so peaceful. The condo is exactly as the pictures show. We had never stayed at the Pono Kai Resort. The staff there was excellent. Priscella who checked us in was very friendly and remembered us when we checked out. The grounds are well kept up and people are working there constantly. We barbecued one night and even the barbecue was very clean.

I highly recommend renting from Craig because he was so easy to work with and his condo made our vacation just perfect!
