Great view, Great location, one squawk.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at the Pono Kai many times but never VRBO before. Upon arrival, we found the room at E-302 to be common to the Pono Kai. Furniture and decor is both standard and dated. Appliances and A/C were okay. The Pono Kai is just beginning a whole new makeover which is much needed. Are VRBO condos included? We don't know. I could not find a VRBO that had both A/C and in-room washer/dryer. Choose A/C as there are coin-op washer/dryers in every building.

This is not a oceanfront condo and is advertised as oceanview. The view is terrific and equals the oceanfront views. Sunrise from the 3rd floor balcony is awesome! The Pono Kai is perfectly located in our experience. Several local restaurants and local artists shops are within walking distance. The ocean is very close but the beach areas are not directly across from the Pono Kai. The 4 mile paved bicycle/walking path is one of the most beautiful experiences you will ever have and gives you access to beautiful beaches that frequently are completely empty. Where else can you have your own private beach on Kauai? Just rent a bicycle from Hele on Kauai bicycle rentals next door to the Pono Kai.

Now for the squawk. For whatever reason the floor is not securely fastened to the subfloor and average sized people walking on it cause the floor to creak and groan like a heard of elephants are walking around. As much as we tried to stay quiet here is nothing we could do and I am sure that the people in E-202 below us will hate us forever when the 2:00 am bathroom call beckoned. They had no chance of sleeping in since we are early risers.

Overall, the location is very good, the view is terrific, the access to the bike path is a big plus, the value for the dollar is actually better than the oceanfront condos.

Something for the whole family

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this unit. We had two units we rented from this owner and another one bed room unit in another building. We appreciated that the owner owned the unit above us and we were able to rent both units and have all the family close by. Can't say enough about the location and livability of this unit. The management of Pono Kai does an excellent job of making sure your stay is pleasant and trouble free.

Large comfortable unit

  • 3 of 5

Unit had plenty of space but no washing machine or dryer they were just 2 units away in communal laundry which was fine but unit had plenty of room to cater for a laundry itself. The unit above us was active at night so that made sleeping a little difficult if you're a light sleeper. Floors are obviously not concrete so even walking around above us was easily heard. The ground floor access was great but it was sad the beach out front was under construction so we couldn't use it. Grounds of resort are immaculate and lots of Bar Be Ques around to cook on. Overall a very nice place to stay.

See you soon!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation and an absolutely beautiful spot to stay! We were a 5-10 minute walk to some of our favorite places on the island (Ono Family Restaurant, Kauai Juice Co, the coconut festival while it was going on, etc.) There was so much to do, some days we would have a day at the pool, play horse shoes, mini putt, shuffle board, bocce ball and croquet. The front desk were some of the sweetest people we had met on the island and the concierge was so helpful and got us some killer deals on some zip lining and tubing we did.

We had a very unpleasant experience with someone in housekeeping (still hadn't come until the third day). The next day, someone else called to apologize to us and made sure we were being taken care of, so that was great!

We were in room E202 and the view was to die for. Since we never got used to the time change, we enjoyed our coffee on the balcony as we watched the perfect sunrise every day. We had our 8 month old baby with us and we were able to cook his food, use the blender in the room and there was even some Tupperware for storage. There was plenty of room for him to crawl and climb around, the master was huge!

You can tell the owners and staff at Pono Kai has so much pride, the gardens were beautifully kept (you really can sample the herbs!), the rooms were so clean, everything worked great. We had some grocery items that we didn't open and you can bring those things down to the front desk, where they have a food pantry box for donation. We loved seeing that the food we purchased was not going to waste and to a great cause! Anything else you leave behind, housekeeping is welcome to have as well, which again, we loved knowing that shampoos, conditioners, opened spices or condiments would be used rather than thrown out.

We will definitely recommend to all of our friends and family, so long as they don't book this unit when we want it again! ;) Mahalo Pono Kai!

Spacious w lovely view of ocean

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was Spacious!! All the amenities for a lovely break from our hectic lives. The view from the balcony was wonderful and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. It became a home away from home with a location central to either side of the island. Thanks for the memories we built during our stay. Mahalo many times over.
