We have seven children and 16 grandchildren. We manage the rentals along with an on-Island manager who will do everything possible to make your Kauai visit a wonderful experience.
Bryan purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Bryan chose Kapaa
We love Kauai and especially Kapaa and Pono Kai. Our kids love to come vacation here year after year. We always find something new on the island. There are truly 101 things to do!!! We have purchased and furnished THREE beautiful condos for rental and personal use.
What makes this Condo unique
The ocean and beach are just steps away. The grounds are meticulously manicured. The 5 mile biking/walking path goes in front of our condo and up and down the island for awesome morning and evening rides/walks. The condo is centrally located on the island (Kapaa) so driving time is minimized. Great restaurants and activities abound all over and we can mingle with the locals and not feel stampeded by tourists. Perfect Hawaiian experience.
Check-in: 4:00 pm
Check-out: 11:00 am
1. Remove shoes at entry. 2. Close all windows and doors when exiting the condo. 3. Empty trash and wash all dishes on departure.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
NO AIR CONDITIONING!
No air conditioning! I missed that little fact when booking this property. I'll say it again. No air conditioning! I had stayed at this Resort before and assumed they all had air conditioning as the units I stayed in before did . It did not . Unfortunately we were there as Kauai was having record high temperatures, humidity and no trade winds for weeks. It was truly miserable. The owner was on Island at the time and brought over extra fans to help but there was just really nothing we could do to be comfortable in this condo without air conditioning. If you're like me and you just can't take the Heat, read property descriptions completely and book a unit with air conditioning. Better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it.
This is a well furnished unit, clean and comfortable. Loved washer/dryer in the unit, and soap for sale at the front desk!
There is no a/c, which took a little getting used too - but at least 2 fans in each room. Maybe one day the owner can spring for small units in the bedrooms?
Only complaint we had was about the safe. It was locked, we couldn’t use it and 2 inquiries went unanswered.
Location of property is ideal! You will enjoy your stay!
Can't go wrong with Kapaa and Pono Kai
We love Kapaa and Pono Kai. They are the perfect central locations to base any activity on Kauai. This is our first stay at this particular property. The spacious rooms were great and the furniture comfortable. Having a washer and dryer is a huge plus!
Thanks for staying with us. Come back soon.
Not what we expected!
Please read all of the reviews before booking this condo. It is in a convenient area. The condo grounds are nice and I saw other condos that had been updated. They were very nice. As many others have written, there is needed maintenance on this condo. We had to call to have the living room slider and screen fixed as many others have also done. The one bedroom's closet door was broken and unusable. I have pictures of everything. They did come to fix it the next day but it was still shoddy work and in need of replacement. The washer was broken. It was fixed 5 days into our 7 day stay. Two of the windows had no locks on them so the condo could never be secured. This was a concern when we wee gone during the day. The local contact Larry was decent and came the first night after I persisted on the phone with him. The owner Bryan never really responded to any email. He did get back to me on one text, but then never again. Some of the other condos had AC, this one did not. They did not represent that it did. There were geckos living inside the unit. We could hear them and see them at night when you put a light on. We never complained about that as it was the least of the issues. Bottom line, for what we paid to them for a condo that was in dire need of maintenance and we could have gotten a much better one directly from Pono Kai for a few hundred more. It might have been a reasonable deal for the money, but we could have done better. Read all the reviews and you will see a trend. They need to put some money into this place.
Thanks for your review. There has never been A/C in any of our units since 1996. It is clearly stated in the Property Description. Sorry, this guest missed it. Washer and Dryer was repaired as soon as we could get a repairman there. We always have dowels to add extra security for the windows, AND a new sliding glass door was installed. We just needed coordinate the installation with the contractor and supplier...big hassle on the Island with sooo much construction going on currently. The closet doors are repaired and all is in order. And yes, please read all reviews. Bryan and Arden
Beautiful setting but the property needs work
The complex is beautiful, this condo needs some work. You can't check in until 4pm thats fine, but the condo wasn't done being cleaned until 5:15, not good. Several of the blinds needed a lot of cleaning since it has no AC you have to leave the windows open so dirty blinds is not good. I'm sure most properties in Hawaii have termites this one has them especially in the kitchen, not good. The cable to the TV in the living room was totally disconnected and I had to reconnect it to watch anything in the living room, not good. The Master bath toilet needs a new wax ring it leaked under the toilet my whole stay, Very not good. It is a well decorated condo, just a short walk to the beach, there are lots of left behind goodies that make you stay more fun, very good. It is in the Downtown Kapaa area just a short walk to a lot of good food and shopping, very good. The complex has a lot of amenities that are good for families, very good. This complex is a great location for most people, I would love to stay in Pono Kai again, but I would need better communication, better cleaning, and a serious going through of fixing things before I would stay in this condo.
Thanks for your review. We have a new housekeeper. She noticed the same things and did a deep clean. We recently returned and were happy with the results. And, yes, termites are a problem for all, and we nuke the termites constantly. Bryan and Arden
This was one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed and experienced.
We agree!!! Bryan and Arden
