My sister and I spent 10 days on Kauai and were so pleased with Pono Kai a 305! It was our second trip to Kauai. We stayed in my son's time share at Hanalie Bay last time and were pleased there...but the view at Pono Kai a305 was so beautiful that I would stay there again hands down! We founf it clean, well decorated and a very convenient location. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and pleasant. We were able to walk to shops and restaurants giving us a chance to explore. Looking forward to booking this unit again!

We had a great time during our week stay. The unit was very comfortably furnished. It has probably the most comfortable hide-a-bed I've ever slept on. Being on the 3rd floor, by opening the bedroom windows & the ocean front screen door, the breeze thru the unit made the temperature very comfortable for daily activity and sleeping at night, especially with the constant sound of the ocean surf. Wish our stay had been longer. Looking forward to returning to paradise!!
Mahalo for your review! Definitely the "best view" is in the living room with it's oceanfront lanai...perfect for viewing the moon rise, sunrise and more! We look forward to having you back!

This condo was simply the best! We had 3 people staying for 1 week in Kauai and found the place very spacious and comfortable. It was centrally located so going to the North shore (Anini Beach) or the South Shore (Poipu beach) was an easy 20 minute car ride with no traffic. The check-in was hassle free, the front desk was very helpful and efficient. We got out keys and swimming pool key cards within 5 min and headed toward the condo. The condo was on the 3rd floor but right next to the elevator. Third floor means no walking noises above and a more safe feeling leaving our lanai door open at night to hear the wonderful ocean waves and cool ocean air right outside!! Every morning we made it a point to get our coffee and breakfast made from the well stocked kitchen and sat on the lanai table and chairs to watch the beautiful sunrise and moon rise lift up from the ocean causing a breathtaking trail of light across the ocean right to our lanai. It was very surreal!! The granite tops on the kitchen made it very easy to maintain. The free internet connection was very reliable and fast, the cable TV was a nice bonus and the cooler, beach chairs and umbrella was much appreciated. The owner of the condo was very helpful. He even provided us with a printout of secret local hangout spots as well as great places to visit and eat. On our last day we went for a wonderful walk along the small town right next to our condo and got great gifts and in my opinion the best shaved ice right next door. Be sure to add at least 1 scoop of ice cream and condense milk. Simply the best! They even have bike rentals in the same complex (2 for $10 per day) very cheap! It was an amazing trip and the condo made for a wonderful home base. We look forward to staying here again when we get the chance to come back to Kauai! I will definitely recommend to all my friends and family about this wonderful condo! Aloha

We so much enjoy staying at this Kauai condo that this is the fifth time we have come back, and we hope to come back again next year in May. This year (2012) is the first time we have visited in May and we found May to be a great time to visit Kauai.
We love hearing the ocean waves at night and watching the sun rise from the sea. This trip, though, we did not see the whales that we have seen when we have visited in February and March.
Every time we visit this condo we find new upgrades. We love the new kitchen! See you next May.

Our stay at Pono Kai Resort #A305 was awesome! The location of the resort is very central which allowed for us to either go north to beaches one day and then south to hike the next. The unit itself was well equipped and the view was stunning! Everything we needed from groceries to shopping, was close by. We made use of the resort barbeques and we felt at home here. We would love to go back someday and bring family with us.

When we arrived, found that the oven had not been cleaned which when my used it for the first time, not realizing there was grease in the bottom of the oven, this set off the fire alarm in the suite. My wife cleaned it. The screen door was off its rollers. Phoned the office and it was fixed promptly. Wrong coffee filters supplied and the coffee pot overflowed. Feel that the internet should be included in the cost of the condo. The clothes iron had a dirty sole plate which needed cleaning before use.
The location is beautiful, The condo is large enough for us. The grounds where well kept and the amenities were nice.
We didnt watch much TV but would have liked more channels to choose from.
The bedroom was a nice size, and so was the bathroom and kitchen. The living room/dining area was adequate as well. Nicely laid out - liked the pony wall between kitchen and dining/livingroom. The balcony was a nice size, except the table could be a little smaller. All in all a pleasant experience. David
Mahalo for your review. We do apologize for the oven and we have advised housekeeper. As you know, new coffee filters were immediately provided and overall we are glad to hear you had a pleasant experience. Garden Island Properties

Pono Ka'i is a well designed and constructed group of condominim buildings, surrounded by beautiful landscaping, fronting on ocean beach. A-305 is very well furnished with about everything you would find at home, including a well equipped kitchen. A nice pool and numerous gas-fired bbq's augment the site.
aloha! Glad to hear you enjoyed A305...yes, it's a very nice unit!! ...and right on the beach!! aloha, Garden Island Properties

I have stayed yearly at the Pono Kai for over 15 years. I have stayed in each of the ocean front buildings. They have all been unique. However, this is the first one bedroom I have stayed in and loved the location (Building a and the top floor).
The unit was decorated very nicely and it was quite pleasant.
My only complaint is that there were a number of electrical issues that consumed by first days. Instead of doing a major fix, it seems as if the approach was to do it "one at a time". This concern for maintainance did not enhance my time in kauai. However, the property management (Sue) was more than accommodating and I could never complain about her response to my various issues. Once these were taken care of, then it was fine.
My suggestion to the owner is that he/she take a look at the electrical box, the hardware in the bath. These are just old and need replacing.
With these items taken care of, I would return to the unit.
aloha and mahalo!! Yes, this is a very nice unit and electrical issues have been taken care of!! Including a new energy efficient refrigerator! We do hope you'll be back to A305! It is a great location on the oceanfront! aloha, Sue & staff

This condo was great. Great location, nicely equipped, very comfortable. The furnishings were nice and made a nice atmosphere. The slideing glass door to the deck provided a nice ocean breeze at night, and listening to the waves as you go to sleep was great. The only bad part was the internet service did not work, and was never able to be fixed while we were there. Thats the only reason I did not give it 5 stars all the way across. I hope to stay there again in 2 years.

We were honeymooning in Hawaii. The resort was perfect. Our room was right on the ocean. We did not even use the bedroom. We left the patio doors open all night and slept on the couch which made out into a bed. There is nothing better than listening to the ocean when you fall asleep and when you wake up. We highly recommend this resort and hope that we get the opportunity to return one day.
