Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the most beautiful Hawaiian floral gift that we found on arrival at your lovely home. It was totally unexpected, but a most thoughtful & sweet thing to do for us on our 25th wedding anniversary.

We've already taken a 1 hour Safari helicopter tour of the Nepali Coast & Waimea Valley & that's been the most exciting time we've had since Colorado. We've driven Southwest & Northwest & Kauai is lovely & pristine.

Your home is warm & welcoming and we're treating it as if it were our own - we're both fussy & clean nuts so everything is being kept clean & tidy.

Your furnishings, pictures and overall color scheme is perfect for this great island. The view from your balcony is so terrific - we watched the sunrise from there & it was delightful.

Thank you for the flowers & for making our stay a memorable one on the island of Kauai.

Sunning view with home away from home amenities!

  • 5 of 5
Cannot say enough great things about this property and the owners! We completely enjoyed exploring the island and took in several activities that were recommended by Shirley. The stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. Shirley was so easy to work with and very quick to respond to all of our questions. The condo was lovely, very clean and well stocked with all of the comforts of home. We were there celebrating our 20th anniversary and my 50th birthday. When we arrived, were greeted by a beautiful tropical bouquet of flowers arranged by Grace, Shirley's manager. There were plenty of places to shop and dine within walking distance. Take in the local Farmer's market if you can and if someone offers to sell you a fresh chilled coconut with a straw in, buy it! They chop off just the top as you order refreshing. If we get the chance to come back to Kauai, I would be hope to stay here again, that's if Shirley and her husband haven't moved in for good...

Comfortable condo with a great view

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Pono Kai very much. The listing is absolutely correct and the photos are true to reality. The condo was recently renovated, clean and comfy and we felt at home immediately.
Kapa'a is a nice little town with several restaurants, cafés and shops at walking distance, and it is also very conveniently situated for sight-seeing. The beaches in the north, Lihue, Poipu and Waimea Canyon can be reached without having to travel too far. Lydgate Beach Park is not far away. This was our favourite as you can snorkel and swim there even when the surf is high.
The condo is well equipped, the kitchen is beautiful and has everything one needs. We loved the view from the lanai, especially the sunrises. We used the beach chairs and took advantage of the coolers for various beach picnics.
We can definitely recommend this condo and would like to come back.

A Piece of Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had been wanting to travel to Hawaii but didn't have the funds to do it until this year. When researching a place to stay, this property caught our attention. From the beginning, our correspondence with Shirley and Tony has been efficient, courteous, helpful, and very professional. They provided us with suggestions on places to visit, sights to see, restaurants to eat at, and helpful tips. We were incredibly excited to visit the island and see our little home away from home.

Upon arrival, we were taken aback by the beautiful property and view. The condo itself is beautiful, well maintained, homey, and very luxurious. It was beyond our expectations. The location of the condo was perfect as it was centrally located, allowing us to travel to all parts of the island without an overwhelming drive. It also was the perfect place to watch the sunrise and sunset on the lunai.

My husband and I enjoyed many activities, though our favorites included all of the wonderful hiking Kauai has to offer. We also did an ATV Waterfall Tour and Horseback Ride, both of which were enjoyable. We also were on a mission to find the most beautiful sunrise and found it on Ke'e Beach. Words cannot describe its beauty.

Thanks, Shirley and Tony for a very beautiful, luxurious "home" in paradise! If we are ever so blessed to have the opportunity to visit again, there is no question that we will be sure to stay once more in Pono Kai Resort.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a great first impression for our first time to Kauai. The condo was wonderful. Very spacious and beautifully furnished. WE loved hearing the ocean and watching the activity on the beach with the beautiful view. The condo was supplied with everything you need from coolers to beach towels. The resort is beautifully landscaped and has a great pool and spa area. It was great to be able to stroll into Kapaa town for dinner and enjoy some of the local restaurants. Kapaa was a good base for touring the island and the trade winds really helped manage the heat and humidity during our stay. We needed a rest and this was a great place for the down days when we just wanted to hang out and relax.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5
This Pono Kai condo is beautifully furnished & very clean. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is supplied including many beach "toys". The appliances are top of the line & the kitchen is well-stocked along with spices, etc. We couldn't have been more pleased with the unit. Shirley was very pleasant to work with & we especially enjoyed the beautiful tropical flower arrangement that was waiting for us on the counter when we arrived. What a nice touch! The view from the lanai is outstanding & the walk/cycle path in front goes for miles along the beach. We love the location in Kapa'a as it's easy to get to the north or south part of the island. If it's cloudy in Kapa'a, you can pretty well plan on sunshine in Poipu or Waimea. From the condo it's easy to walk into town to get our coffee at Java Kai & their delicious muffins! Other restaurants are within walking distance - The Beachwalk Café has a good breakfast (& great view) as well as the Olympic Café & Kountry Kitchen. This was our second stay at Pono Kai, but this condo is by far the best! The Pono Kai grounds are well-maintained & there's plenty of outdoor equipment to use. We are looking forward to our next year's stay in this condo. Thanks Shirley & Tony for such a nice place!

Fabulous Kapa'a Condo

Fabulous Kapa'a Condo
  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Shirley and Tony's place at Pono Kai. We have been to Kauai many times and stayed in many different places, but Shirley's is by far the most beautiful. It is in excellent condition; the furniture is very comfortable and has extra touches that make the condo feel very homey. The kitchen has a granite counter top, chrome appliances and is well equipped. The gorgeous bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with a built in seat which I thought was great. The ocean view from the lanai, as well as the kitchen and living room, is breathtaking. Watching the sunrise from the lanai was the perfect way to start each day. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, soaps and shampoos are provided.
Pono Kai is located in the quaint town of Kapa'a. There is a walking and biking path along the ocean, which is at your doorstep. There is fine dining and shopping within walking distance. Kapa'a is centrally located so traveling to the North or South shores is quick and easy. We truly loved the condo and it's setting and hope to return many more times. Double thumbs up!

From the Owner

The first time we came to Kauai was in 1971. We toured 4 of the islands and fell in love with the 'Garden Isle'. We had friends who owned a condo at the Pono Kai Resort. We started renting their unit and spending many of our family vacations on Kauai. We always hoped to buy one day a little piece of paradise. In 2001, our wish came true.
