Nice room with a good location and nice friendly staff. Would stay again if we come to Kauai. Only thing staff said we couldn't use Landry services or rent movies since we rented from a private owner but they was a note on the door saying we did have the same privileges as everbody else so wasn't sure. Other wise nice location in Kapaa central to do many things and nice pool bar and trees next door and view of the sunrise on this side of the island. Loved it !

This condo was ideal for my husband and I. We spent most of our days visiting sites and relaxed in the evenings. The condo is located steps from the pool, jacuzzi and ocean. The community is beautifully landscaped and peaceful. Our only challenge was giving up a king bed, we managed. We would definitely return.

I have visited the Hawaiian islands several times before but I wanted to have a different experience before a conference in Honolulu. I chose to spend 6 days in Kaua'i and I am so glad I did. It's not a 4 star resort but it was very relaxing and a very short and easy drive from the airport which was welcome after a long trip from the mainland. It was always easy to find a parking space and I easily made it to #137. Although you don't have an "ocean view" you are close enough to hear the waves and you are right next to the pool. It was nice to have the welcome bag and free bottle water. I walked over to the fish market restaurant to get some amazing fish tacos my first night then a drink at the pool bar and we had a local musician playing at the pool while I ate my dinner on the patio. Great first night! It was wonderful to have a fully stocked kitchen and room. I really enjoyed the fan since I sleep with a fan at home. I would walk over to the little mall across the parking lot for the ABC store to pick up snacks, drinks, or things I had forgotten. They had a free hula show from a local dance school that was cute and fun to watch. Being in a central part of the island, I explored almost everything without much driving time and never getting lost. The beach and water along the Islander were a bit rough but it was stormy when I was there. Some other beaches on the island seemed more family friendly, but that is not what I was looking for. As I was sitting one morning on the beach, a monk seal glided along the water just feet away from me, lifted his head up to look at me, then kept on swimming along. After my six days here, I stayed at a 4 star resort in busy Wakiki and I missed my time in laid back Kaua'i.

Wonderful affordable vacation

We spent 8 nights at IOB in room 137 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were there with our 10 and 6 year old children and were very comfortable. It is a huge plus to be on the ground floor so the kids can run in and out to the grass outside and have easy access to the pool. Just wipe those feet! And make sure you keep the sliding door shut or the AC gets upset, take that seriously. We noticed a few drips and shut it down for the day while we were out which fixed it right up. But if we had not been paying attention, the system would have been compromised. We had no issues with the WiFi, and we streamed videos on tablets.

The beach has a close reef, so you need to be aware and careful. We are a surfing family, but only dad went out here. But it was perfectly fine for playing in the sand and wading, especially in the beautiful morning light with a cup of tea. We walked down past the restaurant in front of the Outrigger Hotel to the small protected swim area too. I don't think many people are aware of this option. There were beach toys, boogie boards, a cooler and chairs that we happily used daily on our adventures.

The condo was nicely stocked. We brought a ziploc of tea and condiment packets to aid our food preparations. We ate dinner at the condo every night. We used the bbq grills by the pool, people were more than happy to share, and bought fresh bread and made salads. That, plus other simple breakfasts and lunches, and we only ate out for lunch three times and some fun treats. You can do a lot with a microwave, toaster oven and electric kettle, plus Safeway and Longs down the street. My only suggestion would be to provide a small rice cooker, it not only cooks rice but also steams vegetables. And to provide dishes for four instead of three. We also found ourselves microwaving food in coffee mugs because we did not want to use plastic bowls.

Though we were not official guests of the hotel, the staff and bartenders were very friendly and we also enjoyed some of the local crowd that were there to hang out. We did not have housekeeping services, but it was very easy to do a quick sweep of the floor every day and make sure we were hanging wet towels to dry. Plus no dirty bodies or shoes on the beds.

I highly recommend this unit! It made our Kauai vacation possible because of it's affordability. The grounds were beautiful, the pool well maintained, and the unit clean and comfortable. And not so pristinely perfect that I felt anxious having my children there.

Manager Response

Thank you for the nice review. It seems like we're missing some plates, as there should have been enough for 4 or 5. I will have the management company take inventory. The A/C dripping became a big issue after you left and caused a lot of damage to one of the beds, so we just replaced both beds in the unit and had to have the A/C drainage pipe cleared out. This will probably fix the dripping issue, but it is a good idea for future renters to keep the doors closed when the A/C is running.

Mahalo for the rating of 5!  This unit is in a good location central on the island making going North or South convenient.  This unit does have a private owner which do have use of most all of the amenities.  However recently the laundry facilities have been closed to the private owners. We did not know there were movie rentals on site but right down the street there are places to rent movies if one would so choose.  There also is a laundromat just a couple miles down the road if you need to do any laundry.  We are so glad you loved it and hope you can come back.

Excellent - if one word could describe it. Kapaa is a central location and it is a town which is not commercialized as much as Poipu and Hanalei. Condo owner Kresten is super nice. Condo is well maintained and the complex has all amenities - it is steps away from the beach. The condo had everything one would need. Close to market place and restaurants. We had read other reviews before we booked - the complaint was the internet connection and parking. There is a router in the condo itself which is very fast and the parking may be limited but there is a plenty of parking few steps away. So not to worry. The only regret we have is that we could not stay there more than 4 days as our tickets were booked to come back - would have enjoyed the place more. We would stay in the condo again on our next trip and certainly recommend others to stay. As a matter of fact we already mentioned it to our friends. Kudos to the owner and the manager of the property! Mahalo.

The condo itself was pretty nice... Very nicely located on the beach and with a pool, and the cleanliness and quality of the apartment was good.

When we got there at 230 the cleaning lady was still cleaning and told us to come back after 3, so they are very strict about the check in time.

The WiFi didn't work and we contacted their office. We had to wait around for them to call back and then for a guy to come out to the condo. It took them about 24 hours but they did get it working. Apparently there has been frequent problems with the Wi-Fi. I was visiting for work and had to pay to stream Wi-Fi from a independent server, and the management team refused to pay for the fees that I had to pay to use this wi-fi.

Manager Response

We appreciate you taking the time to post a review for us.  Thank you for your comment on the condo, the location and the cleaniness!  The schedules for cleaning can be different depending on each days check ins and outs so therefore sometimes we do have to stick to the 3pm check in time but if we can accommodate, we will.  We do state in our policies that we are not responsible for any third party services that are out of our control such as TV or internet.  We do try to resolve the problem as soon as we can.  Although we do not often have too many problems with reception, it it an island and may not be as reliable as the mainland or other areas.  

 

Nice Stay But....

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this unit. Unfortunately, it could have been better. The unit was clean, neat and provided the bare essentials needed to vacation IF one is willing or able to economize by having a car to shop at the nearby WalMart (Kapaa) or Safeway (Lihue) to buy simple meal choices that require nothing but a fridge, microwave or super small toaster (suitable for warming pastries) oven. Unfortunately, the lack of even a simple hot plate really limits your meal choices. But if you look hard enough, you can still find some fairly decent microwaveable meal choices.

WIFI access was only available from our room's modem and router on the 1st day. After that, we woke up to find a red light flashing on the modem as I recall. We tried to reset both in the customary sequence but this did not correct the problem during the remainder of our stay. Fortunately, I had a tablet with cellular access, so internet access was still possible.

Granted, in all fairness to the owner(s) or management, we *could* have complained but we spent so much time away touring that these were not deal breakers.

Manager Response

Thank you for the review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We will have the WIFI looked at right away. We haven't heard of any issues with it in the past, but you never know with technology. Just a note on the hot plate idea: we are not allowed to have them per our condo by-laws, so we offer what we can. We're hoping that will change someday.

Budget stay @ its best

Reviewed by Nancy

Unit #137 provides value on a budget. The 90's furnishings (beds--mattress, pillows; chairs, tables, lighting) are tired & could use an update and the entire unit could use a good steam clean. Overall, as clean as it can be. To set expectations, it's like staying at your Auntie's apartment on the beach. Had an issue w/ slow draining bathtub & AC condensation leakage. The on-island contact quickly took care if it -- thank you!

Suggestions:- A fold-able drying rack for beach towels & swimsuits- Bed side reading lights or over head ceiling lighting- Portable oscillating stand fans (sometimes the AC is too much in winter)

The pros:- budget price; professional contacts; ease of booking - central (east) island location; proximity to LIH, stores/restaurants, driving to island activities- grounds nicely manicured; clean pool/hot tub, lounge chairs- safe 1st floor unit; close to the pool/hot tub, lobby, ice machine- kitchenette + supplies, soap, paper towels; beach chairs + towels + cooler, etc- free in unit wi-fi (adequate @ times spotty; if needed, close enough to log into lobby wi-fi)

Keep in mind, this is an older complex, so there aren't as many up-to-date amenities. Even though we couldn't have access to the on-site laundry or lobby amenities for hotel guests, all the IOB staff were helpful & friendly to us Clientele was a mix of families, seniors, couples; domestic & international. If you are on a budget and just need a safe, clean, comfortable place to shower & sleep; I would recommend staying here again. Adequate for 2 adults or 2 adults + 2 small children max; not enough 'elbow room' for 3-4 adults/teens.

We had a wonderful time in #137. The location was perfect for us - near the ocean and near Coconut Market, with its farmers' market on Tuesdays and Thursdays and free shows outside the cultural centre on Wednesdays and Fridays. The unit is comfortable and attractive and well-stocked with little extras - like a cooler, thick beach towels, and beach chairs for picnics and swimming at the neighbouring Lydgate State Park. I really enjoyed the pool - it's bigger than the average private pool, and I was able to swim short laps in it, as most other visitors kept to the hot tub or the pool-side bar. We mostly did our own cooking - no hot plate but the microwave, toaster oven, small fridge, kettle and coffee pot got good use. That said, there was a very good and inexpensive eatery within the Islander complex. When we had a small problem with the condo - for instance the light in the tub burned out - the manager was very quick to take care of it. This is not a five-star hotel, and who needs that anyway? This is a convenient, comfortable, and affordable place to spend a memorable week or so. Note: there is a $75 cleaning fee every ten days of your stay. We avoided paying that twice by staying somewhere else for the first night of our eleven-day visit. And we liked the extra privacy of not having a maid come in every day.

Manager Response

Aloha,

 

Thank you for your detailed review for the Islander on The Beach unit 137. This unit does have extra amenities such as the beach chairs, has a kitchenette that is very accommodating, is centrally located and very affordable. 

 

This is an individual owned unit, so therefore there is not a daily maid service. Therefore if a guest has booked 10 days or more, a midstay clean is required to be able to keep the unit maintained. The unit at that time is cleaned just as if a new guests were coming in. Everything is cleaned, all new linens and bath towels supplied and amenities are replenished such as toilet paper at that time.

The fellow guests and owners are super friendly and down to earth, the beach out front is nice (great sunrises!), the pool and bbq area is clean and well-kept, the grounds are well maintained, we loved the walking path that ran next to the beach for a few miles along the coast, my caffeine addicted husband loved the free morning coffee from 8-9am at reception, it was neat having a pool bar and loved that they brought in a band on Saturday nights (floating in the pool listening to live music is awesome!). The parking lot can get really full, but we usually got lucky, and there is a fire hydrant spot that we put to use for loading/unloading when we couldn't get a spot close to the unit. The coin-op laundry was handy to have on site too (also clean and well-maintained).

Unit 137Again, we weren't wowed we we first entered; it is modest, but nice. It was clean enough for us; it must be hard to keep the red mud stains and sand at bay, but they are doing it! The furnishings are getting a little tired, but good quality. The bedspreads could likely do for an update and 4 of 5 pillows are really hard. One bed is a softer mattress and one is firm, which we liked. We loved having extra blankets available for the beds too! The bathroom is a great size, the kitchenette is totally stocked with everything you would need (we cooked supper on the bbqs almost every night), they had beach chairs, two coolers, umbrella, and beach towels. We were set! It was also nice to have wifi in the unit (many seem not to). The location of the unit was absolutely perfect for us. The trade winds were blowing pretty hard for most of our stay but we were totally protected from them on our lanai, which is more important to me than a direct ocean view. It is close to the pool, bbqs, the beach, the parking lot, and reception. We felt totally safe and secure at all times in the condo and around the complex.

Coconut CoastWe really liked staying on the coconut coast, as we could easily access the north, west, and south parts of the island. There is also lots of shopping a really short drive (Safeway and Longs Drugs within 2 blocks) and the Coconut Marketplace right next door. The Fish Market, which is basically on the condo grounds had great fish tacos (best we had on Kauai), and we rented boogie boards at the place next door to them for $7 for a week!

Aloha CondosGreat to deal with! I cannot say how much I loved that "checking in" meant getting a key out of the little lock box at our unit. Nothing could be easier! They had a cleaner come in 1 week into our 2 week stay, which was nice to get the linens refreshed. There were no surprise fees before or after our stay.

OverallWe were really happy with this unit and Islander on the Beach complex! We thought that it was excellent value for our money and would definitely stay here again!

Aloha,

Thank you so much for your extensive review for unit 137 at the Islander on the Beach. It is a modest unit but does have everything you will need considering the great value. The resort is very centrally located on the island making getting to activities easy going North or South. We are happy to be able to provide the extra amenities such as the beach coolers, beach chairs and towels. You mentioned that you did rent boogie boards, however we do supply the boogie boards also in the units. Thank you for your comments on the linens as we try to replace those with new ones in a timely manner. Thank you again for taking the time to give us your feedback, it is so very helpful! Mahalo for your business.

My husband and I have been staying an Aston islander condo 137 every year for the past few years. We just love the location!! We sit on the patio and watch the ocean! In the morning we walk down to the beach and take in the most breathtaking sunrise. Great food within walking distance. The room is decorated well and it is always clean! We love how the owner provides beach chairs, boogie boards, ice chest and beach towels. It truly is our home away from home.

The room was very nice and clean.

The room was very nice and had a better view than expected. You could see the ocean a little bit behind the pool. It was not too close to the pool to hear noise, however and not too far to make it difficult to walk to the pool It was nice to not have to climb any stairs. Very clean. Gift bad greeted us on table was very nice and we really needed a beach bag so came in handy. Loved this room & would recommend it to anyone!

Great value condo on a beautiful island.

This condo is in a very handy location, close to the ammenities of Kapa'a and next door to the Coconut market place. Being on the ground floor it has a lovely lanai which overlooks the pool and only about a hundred metres to the beach (which you can see from the lanai). It is a little dated but in good and clean condition with a kitchenette (small) sufficient to make breakfast and sandwiches but would benefit from the addition of a salad bowl as there is a barbecue on site. Parking is provided free of charge which is also a bonus. Rates are extremely reasonable. The beds (two) are comfortable. The provision of free wifi is very much appreciated as are the thoughtful welcome gifts of chocolates etc. The information and support provided by the managing agents was excellent. I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to my friends. Kauai is a beautiful island, perhaps the best of all! :)

Thank you for the positive review. Thank you also for letting us know about the salad bowl. I arrived on island right after you and I was able to replace some of the things that were missing from the condo.

The room is just a hotel size but good enough for our stay. (2 people)It may be too small for family and I recommend it for senior couple.The room is fully equipped with what we need and 2 full size beds are comfortable to sleep.Free internet access is nice and only we hope if there is a phone in the room. (because local call is toll free)New Japanese air conditioning is powerful and quiet. Parking space is limited, you may not find a slot when you arrive in the late evening andyou have to park on the street, then you move your car next morning by 10:00.The hotel located close to supermarket, drugstore, Starbucks, Lapperts ice cream, etc.

It was a great stay except with nice view to pool and beach. It was very well stuffed with things you don't want to buy extra like salt&pepper;, coffee filter etc. We got a free pack&play; for our little one to sleep in. The only bummer was the construction going on on the other building the 2nd week, which we didn't know it would be. And something to hang and dry your towels or swimsuits would be useful since you are not aloud to hang them over the lanai chairs.

Awesome place to stay!

This condo was conveniently located and right along the beach, shopping, farmers market and excusion outlets. The accommodations were adequate with a blender but wish there would have been a stove top for cooking. The front door was a little tempermental. The only other challenge was parking and having to pick up a permit for the overflow parking area nightly. Would have been nice to have a permit for each night we were there instead of signing in each evening with the security officer.

Thank you for telling us about the problem with the front door. The top hinge was almost broken, so we had it fixed.

We had a great two weeks at Islander in Unit 137. Our three complaints are that the automatic door closer is way too strong(as we have found in other units in the facility) and the door does not fit/close easily. Also, as is true in all the units at the Islander, the sliding glass door and the curtains are at odds with eachother; the door should have opened from the end, not the middle.Our unit was clean, stocked, and ground floor, with a short walk to the pool and beach. We'll stay there again. Lee chambers, Oregon

I booked a condo through aloha resorts and the experience couldn't have been easier. Communications were quick and easy and everything was exactly as described.

The location of this condo is wonderful as it is a 2 second walk to the beach and the pool.

In addition there is a shipping center within a 3-5 minute stroll. The condo was like a well-stocked hotel room and for the price, could not be beat. It was clean and filled with all the beach accessories you would need.

Overall this was a wonderful experience.

This condo was wonderful. Free parking and wifi. It's on the bottom level of the three story condo which I thought I would not like but It was awesome to just open up the great big sliding glass door to walk to the pool which was steps away and also the hot tub and the bar! Also great when we had a handful of clothes to wash at the laundry room. It had everything we needed beach towels plenty of bath towels. We used the small fridge provide and got water bottles and other drinks and everyday filled the small cooler (also provided) with ice (there is an ice bin just steps away the front door) and had cold drinks for the car/beach. Saved us some money. Bought Kauia coffee and enjoyed that every morning on the patio. Our only bummer was that we noticed you can hear clanking of cabinet doors and if people are being a bit noisy you can hear it. When this happened we played our music softly and just tuned it out :-) we had to move to a resort for two days after because we didn't have the condo for 7 full days. Luxurious resort, but we had to pay for parking $14 a day and they wanted $13 for wifi !! Craziness. Also bonus was that grocery store was very close! Safeway is down the road. If you want a sweet retreat come here..if your lookin to party all night long don't. My husband and I loved the stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this unit for 8 days in December 2012 and to be honest we were a little worried as to what we would be staying in, because if you've compared prices to other hotels this unit was a steal. I was dreading being stuck in roach motel, but upon arrival I was very pleased with our choice of stay. First thing I noticed walking into the unit was how clean it looked and smelled. Before we found the unit though, we had some difficulty locating the unit, everyone we asked seemed to point us in the wrong direction, so a map of the grounds before hand may have been useful. However, the rental company was quick to help and answer any questions we had.

The unit had many useful amenities that you would not have found staying at a regular hotel. Things such as real beach towels, like pretty colorful big ones. This was very fortunate for us as we decided to not pack, so this saved us money. There was nice welcome package with a tourist video, coffee, candies, and all sorts of things. Other things like BBQ utensils, ice chest, beach chairs, sand toys, and more also came in great use. The room had a decently sized bathroom and although we didn't use it much, the a/C unit was nice at time. They didn't want clothing hung off the furniture, a drying rack of some kind would have been useful.

The pool and beach was just a short walk from the Lanai. We cooked food on the hotels brand new Bbq's and enjoyed the company of fellow travelers and locals at the tiki hut by the pool most nights.

The only con I can think of that the beach isn't the nicest, but Kapaa is a great place to stay as it a good starting point to head North or South for the day which is what we did. We enjoyed the farmers market on Thursdays in coconut marketplace and all the stores there as well. I would definitely stay again!

I gave them 5 stars based on what I was told I was purchasing and what I actually got for my money.

In summary: This condo is small. But at the price ($89/nt+tax) it was perfect. If you want more, you pay more. This was the least expensive option I could find and it met all my needs perfectly. Couldn't ask for a better value.

The good: The owners make the most out of this small space. For example, the kitchenette is equipped with a mini-fridge, sink, and microwave but also a coffee pot (8-cup) and toaster oven. It also has dishes and utensils and 3 cutting boards (incl. 1 that is large enough to cover the sink, creating a little more work space). By being a little creative (heating water in the coffee pot, broiling steaks in the toaster oven), I found that this tiny kitchen had everything I needed to eat-in and minimize my food costs. There are also grills by the pool if you prefer that option.

Some other nice touches: the beach towels and chairs are fantastic; the chairs at the little table are quite comfortable; I fell in love with the comforter; and they have an iPod docking station with alarm clock that I really enjoyed. They also provided a really good island guide book (on loan) and a journal for sharing experiences with owners/future guests. I took that guide book with me everywhere, it was so helpful.

The bad (nitpicky things only): There are no carpets, all the floors are tiled. Easy to keep clean, but not pleasant to walk on 1st thing in the morning. I suggest you pack slippers or house shoes. The heavy privacy curtain opens/closes easily, but the thinner curtain gets stuck on the tracks - guess that one doesn't get opened as often. The air conditioner looks rusty, but works fine. The bathroom fan sounds like it needs some attention, and it's annoying that it comes on every time I turn the light on, but it works as it should.
