People are really planned early for 2016. I'm totally rented out for 2016 already. I will be able to make reservations for 2017 starting in January. If your thinking of staying at the Pono Kai for 2017 let me know and I'll hold a week for you. If you have any questions Please let me know.
The BeachWalk is about a five minute walk down the coastal path from the Pono Kai. We went here about six times during our last trip. My wife loved the Kalua Pork and I loved the calamari. We both loved the all day happy hour and the $5 Mai Tai's. One thing for sure is you can't beat the view.
We started our stay this year in F303 before moving to D302. Here's a short video of some of the chickens and the sun coming through the clouds in the early morning. This is how is was most mornings. 😀
My wife did a little tour of our unit at the Pono Kai. This unit is on the third floor and on the end so it has an extra window in the living room. It's probably about 30 yards from the ocean. This is our first trip during May and we haven't had to use the air conditioner at all. The trade winds have been great keeping everything cool. It's been 82 degrees everyday.
Been here a week and still have a week to go.😄 We're in F303 a two bedroom loft unit. The photos are from the lanai. We hit some new places and some old favorites. I'll be posting about those in the future.
We started packing today. I'll be leaving work early on Tuesday so we can get to the air port. This is our first trip that we will be able to pick up our tote that we stored in Kauai so we don't have to pack as much stuff every time. We have a few things we will be adding to the tote but I already notice we are traveling much lighter. Storing the tote is turning out to be a great idea.
We'll be getting in a little late on this trip. Should be at the resort by 8pm. Just in time to stop off for some take out at L&L Hawiaian BBQ. 😄 Then we'll checkin, eat and hit the sack to get on island time.
We have a few hikes planned and we'll head to Anini for some snorkeling. We have a few new attachments for my wife's new GoPro so we hope to post some great pictures. We'll probably take a boat tour this year, maybe the one near Niihau.
Carol went to the Pono Kai for the first time in February. I'm happy she took the time to send me the following message. Sounds like she had a great time.
Hi Jeff: wanted to send a big thank you your way for allowing us to rent your timeshare at PonoKai. It ended up being the perfect location. We rode bikes everyday or walked. Rarely got in the car except for a trip to north shore, Waimea canyon and an anniversary dinner at Duke’s in Poipu. It was awesome being so close to old historic Kapa’a town. So many great places - Olympic cafe, Mermaid cafe, Kauai Juice Bar, Hoku organic grocery store, Java Kai. . We also loved Verde for mexican food and Pho Kapaa for Vietnamese. I had no trouble finding vegetarian options. Everyone at the resort was so helpful. The activities person there set us up on a kayak trip and our favorite was Captain Andy’s 4-hour catamaran dinner cruise up the NaPali coast. Amazing trip and an awesome company. Thank you again. I hope I can return some day soon so I hope you are still doing rentals! Aloha, Carol
We've been hearing a lot about the fresh pies from The Right Slice so we had to find them on this trip. They are in Lihue at 1543 Haleukana Street, Lihue, HI 96766.
They are kind of in the middle of nowhere but it is worth the trip. Like a lot of places on Hawaii , the place is nothing to look at and kind of a hole in the wall but we are starting to see this is part of the charm of these places. They have a great selection of fruit and cream pies as whole pies or by the slice. I loved the lilikoi!!! You may also find them at events around the island selling their fresh pies.
On our last trip in October we made a trip to Hanalei and we stopped out to see the new pier. This was our first trip since they replaced the cover on the pier. It's a great spot to sit and relax and take in the island beauty. It's great to see the waterfalls in the surrounding mountains.
