Wow! Where to begin? Brevity is the soul of wit, they say, so I say this - stay here. You will not regret it. The pictures do not come close to capturing the ocean view, and you will sleep to the sound of the surf all night long. There were supplies everywhere - from salt, ziplocks and sugar to shopping bags. You will feel welcome, you will feel relaxed, you will be pleased at the cleanliness, you will feel at home, you will be happy. I would move here. (Practically, I will note that if your family is physically larger than two adults and either one more adult or two children it'll be too small. It was perfect for our family of three.) I can't wait to go back! Mahalo!

The location of this unit makes it a gem. A dream come true for a landlubber from the Alberta prairies. Watching the waves break and the sun rise everyday from the balcony is the most awesome way to start the day.

Aloha Julie and future renters, This condo was amazing! First of all for direct oceanfront I believe this is one of the best secrets on the island and the views were amazing. Not one morning did we miss the opportunity to watch some of the most beautiful sunrises directly from the balcony. Plus if you plan on seeing as much of the island as possible or just want a great central spot this is the place to be. Centrally located on the island from both North and South shores we were able to see the end of every road with ease and still enjoy some of the best food on the island back in Kapaa. I really can't say enough great things about this condo and the Islander in general. Just the perfect amount of amenities and space for a great trip. Room was clean and the kitchen utensils and toaster oven were perfect for early morning breakfasts before we hit the road. Mahalo Again Julie for such a wonderful stay and the extras you included for us that made our honeymoon in your condo absolutely amazing!

Everything we needed for our three-night stay.

We had a great stay at Islander on the Beach. We especially loved being right on the ocean and sitting on our lanai enjoying the breeze and the view. We found what we needed in the condo and were able to prepare simple meals in the kitchenette. The property had a small pool and hot tub which we tried out once. We were mostly exploring other parts of Kauai and came back to the condo to sleep! We loved the location and there were lots of grocery stores and good spots to eat locally, and Kapaa was a great place to call home base, where we were able to drive up North or down South to explore other parts of the island.

Renting a privately owned condo, found through the web, made me very nervous. What if we got there and it was a bait and switch? Well, all I can say is that we stayed 5 days in Unit 224, and for the price that we paid; it was beyond my best expectations! It is a gem. We found the unit clean, well stocked and nicely appointed. Most of all, however, was the view and location. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it without hesitation. This unit truly has a million-dollar view! Being on the second floor is great, too. You are up just enough to see over the low dunes, for a full ocean view, and yet feel secure in leaving the sliding glass door open with the screen closed, to hear the surf lull you to sleep. Early risers will love the balcony -- the "lanai" -- to enjoy a cup of coffee, read and watch the sun come up. The location of the unit, in Kapa'a, is also great. It is the perfect distance from everywhere. You will want to go to the south and west side, but you will also want to go to the north coast. Kapa'a is right in the middle. Wal-Mart and Costco are just 15-20 minutes down the road in L?hu'e, where the airport is located. Amenities of the unit include a couple of lawn chairs, and two beach towels. There are a couple of boogie boards on the patio. There are robes in the wardrobe, and plenty of extra soaps and shampoos in the bathroom, which is a nice touch. The air conditioner worked great, but we mainly just left it off, and opened the screen door. Free Wi-Fi was a breeze to access. There are some basic things in the kitchenette, like salt/pepper, silverware, knives, cutting board, etc. There is a microwave and toaster oven. Don't do what we did, and overlook the blender tucked under the sink. Pina Coladas over the rocks are just not the same! If you want to be more sociable, without actually driving anywhere, the Sand Bar at the complex's pool is a nice thatched roof tiki/palapa style hangout. Remember, Kaua'i has DUI checkpoints.

Perfect!

Stayed here just last week and it was wonderful. The views were awesome. Went to sleep every night listening to the waves. The condo is about the size of a hotel room but you really don't need anymore space as we weren't in the room much! Very well stocked. Thank you for such a great place.

We loved living right on Kapaa's East shore in 224. The small room was clean and cozy, and perfect for our sleepy nights after a day out in Kauai. We had issues upon arrival with a dripping air conditioner, however, we were impressed with how quickly it was repaired. The only other complaint was that the in-room safe was not working during our stay.

Stayed in condo 224 for 5 nights. we couldn't have asked for a better location to the activities on the island. Condo was well equipped with all we needed to include Beach chairs and umbrella. Unit was a bit cramped with 3 people especially when the couch was pulled out into an extra bed. Couch cushions were a bit stained and could use a cleaning. Even though there were plenty of towels they all had a very musty, moldy smell which was unpleasant when drying off. All in all it was fantastic waking up and enjoying the sunrise off the balcony every morning.

This is the second time that we have stayed at Islander on the Beach. Last year, we were in unit 225 and this year in unit 224. The accommodations are better than hotel room accommodations and the view is absolutely beautiful. The only thing between you and the beach is a sidewalk and a few of trees which provide an adequate/appropriate view of the beach. We will definitely be back!

As soon as you open the door to unit 224 you are greeted by a million dollar view. It is exactly as pictured and the sound of the surf is a perfect background. The unit has lovely amenities: high quality linens and lotions. The "kitchen" is amply stocked, and plenty of restaraunt choices are within a five-minute walk. I recommend The Fish Hut in the Coconut Market Place, and then you can walk along the beach to burn it off! Hotel staff were very friendly, and they have computers to confirm return flights. One note on the unit: two people would be the limit, and I would have liked a little step stool to reach the glasses and other items on the top shelf of kitchen.

Positives: Exceptionally clean and modern. View is spectacular. Islander has nice pool and hot tub. Grounds are meticulously groomed. Lots of towels and beach accessories. Comfortable bed. Air works perfectly. Liked the proximity to the Coconut Market Place and to Kapaa. Service from aloha Condos was very good.Loved sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine. Negatives: Parking was an issue during the evening when the restaurants were in demand. Condo was small (probably a converted hotel room)and I wouldn't want to stay more than a few days as I like my space. Beach wasn't really walkable or swimable. However, it is just steps from your room. This condo is not suitable for people needing an elevator to access a second story unit as there is no elevator.

We recently travled to Kauai (Nov 2011) and stayed for a week in #224. The room was exactly as pictured on their website and very clean. We were welcomed with a gift bag containing a box a chocolate covered macademia nuts, cookies, a tote bag and a couple of other things. It was waiting on the table for us in the room. The kitchen cupboard had a variety of things not usually found in a condo - storage baggies, tin foil, sugar, paper plates, etc. My husband loved starting each day on the lanai as the day awoke. The view is just awesome! The people who manage the room were so nice - within an hour of arriving, we had locked ourselves out of the room and someone had to come to let us back in. The lady who came was so nice about everything even though it had interrupted her evening. We enjoyed comraderie at the pool bar during happy hour a couple of afternoons. The grounds are well kept up and the staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend this resort and this room in particular! - Joyce B.

We just returned from a week at Islander on the Beach Condo #224. I felt it was an incredible value for a beach front property. The room was clean and well furnished with a microwave, toaster oven, fridge and coffee maker, and kitchen necessities. Also included were beach chairs and a cooler bag. I loved sitting on the lanai or on the uncrowded beach (on property provided lounge chairs) reading. The only negative might be that the water is quite rough so children would probably not be able to ocean swim. But the pool with poolside bar was lovely and never crowded. The property was also conveniently located between the North Shore and Popiu Beach. I would definitely return to this property and recommend it to friends looking for a great Kauai value.

This was a pleasant stay at islander on the beach. In fact, it is not an appartment but an hotel room, thus more simple. But everything is there : tv, internet wifi, airco, kitchenette, large bathroom, beautiful view on the ocean. And everything for an affordable price. Kapaa is a good place to discover Kauai and a lot of restaurants and supermarkets around. Only one thing : the beach is not really attractive but you take your car and you go everywhere you want.

The hot water was excellent! Stairs to 2nd floor not bad. Ice machine close by. Air conditioning was great, we cut it off 1/2 the time ast was not needed. This is not a resort with numerous amenities. We weren't looking for that. There is a pool, hot tub, gas grills, beach chairs, poolside bar. The beach is not a swimming beach though we did see people out there. Beach chairs are scattered along the beach area. There is a laundry on site. Parking is an issue at night, security assists you. We went to front desk for parking pass as instructed by security & got that w/no hassle, though we weren't checking in thru aston. Grounds are beautiful & well kept. It is quiet here. We saw a monk seal on the beach 1st morning here! Marketplace is across the parking lot w/restaurants & shops. Grocery stores, drug store, etc., are about a mile away, left side of the hwy. Wal-mart 15 minutes away in Lihue. Location was ideal for us. Is central to the island & made it easier to drive one day all the way north & one day all the way south. Be aware front desk not willing to help you w/anything as they only work w/those who rented through aston. If you are looking for a laid back place w/out posh amenities with great views at a great price, this is it!

We we arrived to the condo, it was easy to get in and no lines!! Just walked up to the door and that was it! My husband was amazed by the condo and the view. He didn't believe me when I told him how much it cost per night! We rented a jeep to go exploring and it is worth doing so. The condo was right in the middle of the island and very close to the airport, shopping and activities. We will be back every year. The rate was great and the view for the rate mad us feel rich! It was beach front alright. The coconut markplace had great food and was within walking distance. Recommend going to the store and getting drinks and food items. the condo have a coffee maker, fridge, microwave and a toaster oven. We saved a lot of money by cooking breakfast and lunches. Then we got to sit out on the patio, eat and listen to the ocean waves. The bathroom had a blow dryer too which was good because I left mine at home by mistake!!!
