This is my second time staying in #259. Loved it so much when I was there with my husband in 2012, I came back this year with my friend. Kauai is a beautiful island and the Islander is so conveniently positioned for visiting both the north and south shores of the island. Condo is clean, well equipped and the view is fantastic. A realy bonus is falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing against the shoreline. Appreciate the boogie boards and Tommy Bahama beach chairs as well. Thanks for another great stay, Kristen. We will be back!
Great affordable stay, exactly as promised

My wife and I came over from Maui for Memorial Day Weekend, exactly what we needed. The condo was very clean, extremely comfortable, and exactly as advertised. This is a great place to stay, especially if you want to travel and see the island, great central location. Having a pool, jacuzzi and pool bar was really nice. The only suggestion to the owner, really need to change out the drapes in the living room, they are about 2 years past due. Other than that you have a great place that I would love to return to!
Great Ocean View But....

Positives - View, free wifi, welcome bag, lanai, coin laundry, friendly staff (helpful with parking sticker and sold roll of quarters for laundry, fresh coffee and fruit each morning), beach availability, location on island, security on property Not So Positives - Moldy smell in condo (blankets, pillows, towels, couch very bad), when open refrigerator - overwhelming garlic odor), had to kill only one roach and another flying insect, lighting in bathroom was very dark. Other buildings on property currently undergoing major reconstruction which caused noisy and dirty conditions at times.

We stayed at Condo 259 for two weeks at the end of January and early February. The directions to the place were clear and we found our way to it in the dark with no problem. In fact it was very convenient for trips both North and South on the Island. The purpose of our visit was R&R; and we enjoyed the beach and lanai very much. The bed was comfortable and we were lulled to sleep by sounds of the surf. Maybe it is time to update the decor! Some new prints on the walls and mats on the floor would be a start. The bathroom is very dangerous for seniors since there are no Grab Bars of any kind anywhere. The owners need to pay a little more attention to their investment - it is slipping.

We stayed here for 10 nights and 9 days. The accommodations were excellent given the price range. We didnt need maid service, nor did we need anything fancy and this fit the bill. It was one of the cheapest places to stay on Kauai. Major pros: There was no obnoxious noises throughout the night. The staff was friendly (as was everyone). The beach was a 30 second walk and visible from the room. Centrally located to all of the island. Very comfy king size bed! More pros :) AC Plenty of towels Microwave, oven, fridge, many utensils and napkins, bags, etc... Cons (If you really want to call them that): The beach near the room is nice, but it isnt one you go to Kauai for, nor one you stay at for more than a sunrise or sunset, having said that, the island is big and beautiful, so this wasn't a problem for us.
A Great Stay

My wife and I stayed in 259 for 4 nights. Everything was as advertised. It was a great price with a great ocean view. The condo facilities are well kept and my only complaint would be a shortage of parking. The condo itself was clean and the air conditioner was nice. Due to the humidity it did smell a little musty but not too bad.Maybe some new sheets, rugs and curtains would help out. I have been to all the major Hawaiian islands and Kauai is by far my favorite with great beaches and great scenery without all the Oahu crowds. Would certainly stay again.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Hawaii.The unit met with all of our expectations with the exception of cooking facilities. Because of diatary needs for dibetes we need to do more cooking than most. The microwave and toaster oven were good and with the addition of an electric fry pan (which we purchased) we managed well. Bedding was exceptional.
Met all of our expectations

When we arrived at Islander on the Beach, we were thrilled. The room was clean and cute, there was a wonderful balcony with a ocean view, and there was a sweet gift bag on the table with a few goodies, including chocolate covered macadamias. It was all very thoughtfully done. My boyfriend and I keep talking about how much we enjoyed the experience and how we will definitely stay there again. He just actually said, I would not change one thing about it. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for something calm, simple, and clean. It's walking distance to food too! There is also a bar by the pool, which we enjoyed very much.
Great location for access to attractions North or South!

Our room was clean and provided just about everything you needed, dishes, towels, cleaning agents etc. Perfect view of the ocean. Don't think we would have wanted to be any closer as the ocean and waves are very beautiful but noisy if you want to leave the door open for sleeping. Bed comfort was So-So for us. Maybe we are just spoiled from home. I might mention that there are no elevators so whatever you bring you will be hauling them up and down the stairs. Would have given it 5 stars;however, there were a few maintenance issues that were not really a big problem but were annoying. As others have stated the parking is a problem if you return late in the evening. They do have overflow parking at the nearby resort and businesses but we never had to use them.

For the price the condo is fantastic value and an overall great experience. The location is very convenient with quick access to many great beaches and restaurants. The resort is great and having the pool, pool bar, bbq and spa is an added bonus. The Condo itself is a little small and the kitchen is quite limited but the balcony is fantastic and the view of the ocean is nice. The beach itself while lovely to look at is not really a swimming beach so that was a slight disappointment. Overall however great experience and I'd recommend it.
Great ocean view from the lanai!

Excellent choice for our first stay on Kuwai.

Proximity to the sightseeing destinations was central to our wishes, with attendent dinner locations (both take-out and restaurant) accessible by foot and by car. The view from our room and deck during the day was great, as was the sound of the ocean during the evening and night hours. The screening of bushes allowed privacy, with the location of buildings providing both privacy and shelter from the full sun and wind. The noise from the construction was not problematic with the 8:30 start and the 4:30 stop. My wife and I enjoyed our 9 day home away from home stay in very clean and pleasant surroundings - it's even nice not being bothered by cleaning staff, as we had all necessary toiletries, towels and bedding available. The home was quiet, comfortable and provided excellent computer access. The mini fridge and microwave were sufficient for breakfast and lunch preparation. Our single son, Ryan, had stayed in the Islander a year ago and had recommended it highly, even though he thought our preference would have been provision of a full kitchen. I apologize for not writing comments in the guest book. Would return again, with possible interest in purchase of a unit! Thanks for a wonderful vacation available at a reasonable rental rate.

The studio has a great view off the balcony of the ocean, and you can hear the waves all night long if you want to (or if you don't, you can close the sliding door and use the aC). The studio was very clean and comfortable, and Islander at the Beach is a great resort. The location in Kapa'a makes it ideal for day trips north to the Hanalei area or west to Poipou or Waimea Canyon. We did everything from hiking to snorkeling to kayaking, all within about an hour's drive.

The island was beautiful!!! The view from the lanai was amazing! If the bed was on the opposite wall of the condo..it would have been perfect to open your eyes and see the ocean..maybe that is something your condo owner can try!? My husband and I found the bed to be very comfortable..soft and relaxing..although the comforter was not very soft and inviting..was a bit scratchy. Also the coffeepot leaked, so we were unable to use it after the first morning. We were also bummed to find out that the mini frig had no freezer area, we would have liked to bought microwave foods. We did appreciate all the utensils in the kitchen all the extra towels that was a wonderful surprise..thank you for that. All in all it is hard to complain when you are staying in paradise..Just those small things would have made it feel more like home. We appreciate the stay and look forward to another visit in the future..until then we will be dreaming of your island while we are stuck in here the central valley of California..thank you again and I hope this feedback is not taken negatively. We are just being sincere and honest.

It was a great and memorable stay! The condo was very clean, everything worked (appliances), it was convenient to the beach, shopping, eating places and the event (hula dancers) happening in the area. The Farmers Market was wonderful at the nearby parking lot with everything fresh and with friendly locals. The area surrounding the condo was pleasant, clean and quiet at night time. We would definitely come back and would recommend the place to our loved ones. Thank you for being there (easy access) returning my calls and e-mails on a timely manner.

We recently stayed at condo #259 for 12 days. The resort has a breathtaking landscape with walkways along the beach that offer a good walk to the residents. There's nothing I enjoy more than long walks breathing the ocean breeze on the beach every night with my husband. The facility is spacious and comfy provided with country-style furniture. Bathroom and bath towels are nice and clean. However I found that the kitchen is quite small which contains only a small fridge, a microwave, and a kitchen sink. Beneath the sink are drawers for utensils, and above it are cabinets for dinnerware/seasonings. No cooking stoves provided. In addition, the sofa has a damp smell and pillow case/bed sheets do not have a fresh scent. Other than that, we had a good stay at an affordable price!

Enjoyed the condo, even in the stormy weather. Our one complaint was the internet modem being locked. We contacted management several times to try and resolve the issue, but without success. In our opinion, they should have come by and unlocked or replaced the modem, as it was supposed to be functioning in our unit. We were able to secure another neighbor's connection, but only in the back of the unit. It would have been nice to sit on the Lanai and use our ipad or iphone to send photos or email home.
We apologize for the problems with the internet. We were under the impression that you were resetting the router and would let us know if that did not work. When we didnât hear from you we thought all was well. We have had difficulties with the DSL so as of June are now changing over to RoadRunner which is much more reliable on Kauai so we should not have these problems going forward.

Not luxury but nice and well kept up. The room is attractive and has everything you need. Balcony with view of waves, patio furniture. The beach is good for walking, we saw wind and kite surfers in February. Possibly a sea turtle in the waves, too. Great base for exploring the island. The resort next door has a terrific upscale restaurant. Coconut Marketplace has stores with good gift items. Close to McDonalds for quick breakfasts. We were on the go and this place was perfect.

We needed 2 nights to stay while our booked appartment became available. We came at night, got the key in the lock box. Were pleasantly surprised at the morning when found ourselves at a few steps from very nice beach. Room was clean and comfortable. For 4 of us we would like to have a kind of kitchen, but it is more kind of hotel. Good view from the balcony where we were having breakfast and dinners looking at the garden and ocean.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the condo. It has everything you might need (even welcomes you with a bag of goodies, thank you that was nice)and the location cannot be better. By the way, booking the place is just as easing. Thank you Kristen at aloha Condos for making it all hassle-free. Overall, a great place to stay and good people to deal with. Next time we are on Kauai, we'll book this condo. Hands down, the best.
Islander on the Beach 259 was Breathtaking!
Reviewed by Aloha Judy
Islander on the bEach 259 had everything we needed. There was lots of space and everything was very modern and new. The a/c was a nice touch after a day at the beach. The location of the resort is perfect. It is right in the middle of the island for easy trips north or south. Do not miss Wiamea Canyon or Kee Beach during your trip. Having Coconut Marketplace next to the resort was great because we could walk over for breakfast, lunch or dinners. Overall I can't think of anything that would have made this trip or condo any better. It is not the St Regis and we weren't expecting it to be. It was a great resort with a nice pool bar.

We really enjoyed our stay in 259. I think the only thing that condo would really benefit from is a toaster over rather than just a plain toaster. We loved the location as it made it easy to take trips to either side of the island. Parking was ok and could be a little challenging when returning in the evenings. We loved our view of the ocean. The condo was very clean and amenities were clean and up to date. We would go back again!
