Owner Supplied Testimonials

We were VERY happy with our stay.
5 of 5
The condo and the property exceeded our expectations. Really enjoyed the deluxe, upgraded accomodations and the grounds are beautifully manicured. The proximity to all the amenities in Kaapa were very convenient. We rented a car for the first week but the last week either walked or biked (rented next door) around. Couldn't be happier with our choice, wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Perfect Place to Stay!
5 of 5
This beautifully remodeled condo is in the perfect location for exploring Kauai! We went snorkeling and hiking on the north shore, plus hiked the Waimea Canyon trail, visited the lighthouse, and (of course) just relaxed on the beach. Access to beaches, restaurants, running / biking trails, and all sorts of activities is excellent. The condo is very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and loaded with amenities. Shirley Cooney is an awesome host and the staff at the resort are always available to answer any questions. We will undoubtedly stay here again!

We were very pleased to find the condo was as nice as the pictures and description. Shirley was very ethical to let us know that some construction might start while our stay and offered a discount or cancellation. We are so glad that we decided to keep our reservation. Construction did not start during our stay and we had a beautiful sunrise every morning. Shirley was also VERY responsive to us during our stay. You can tell that she wants you to enjoy your vacation. The location of the property is also convenient to explore the entire island. Kauai is one of our most favorite places to vacation and this condo contributed to ensure a wonderful stay. Hope to come back soon!

This unit is absolutely beautiful. It has been exquisitely redecorated and remodeled. The owners have thought of everything. The unit is well located with great ocean views. From walking around the complex and seeing in the windows of other units, I really think this one is probably one of the best -- if not the best --- in the entire complex. Owners were also very pleasant to deal with and called after our arrival to make sure that everything was OK. We highly recommend this unit.

My new husband and I spent our honeymoon at this wonderful condo in the Pono Kai - it was perfect. The kitchen and bathroom are gorgeous and we loved all the amenities - no need to rent snorkel gear, beach chairs, or anything else. We especially loved the tennis racquets, and the pool was perfect for days when we wanted to stay close to home. By the way, we were able to see another unit and ours was BY FAR superior. Loved it. We will definitely be back :)

We stayed three nights in the Pono Kai condo during our 30th anniversary trip to Hawaii. The condo was very clean and beautiful! Shirley and Tony were helpful & very easy to work with. There were several nice restaurants nearby--one we walked to that was upstairs--the seafood was excellent! We hope to return again someday!
