Loved our stay here

The condo was clean, cozy and perfect for us as a honeymooning couple on the island. It had a lot of appliances for quick cooking, plenty of storage space in the refrigerator and towels. It was well equipped with beach gear and the balcony was lovely to enjoy a drink on in the evenings. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again. The location was perfect and was right in the middle of everything on the island.

Great and affordable place to stay on East Shore of Kauai
Gil J from 32123 on 06/02/2012 said:
My wife and I stayed at the Islander on the Beach condo and were more than surprised at the level of amenities provided, as well as the great location on the east shore of Kauai, given the incredible per-night price we paid ($79!). There was a new and super-comfy king-size bed, with an abundance of pillows for all extremities - with additional pillows in the armoire, if we wanted more. (We enjoy comfort!) The room was the same size as an average hotel room, with the king-size bed, small sofa (with convertible bed), coffe table, flat-screen TV, free wifi, a DVD player, well-stocked small kitchen (plates, bowls, silverware, blender, toaster, etc.), and the bathroom was plenty big as well. Also provided were beach towels, beach mats, and a big beach umbrella, and beverage cooler shoulderbag. All great provisions, since we used them all and would have been a nightmare to pack and travel with. There was a coin-op laundry facility in a separate building, and a small pool with pool bar and Bbqs for tenant use. The grounds were very clean and well kept. I would recommend staying on the east side of the island if you are going to be traveling to the north, south and west shores/areas during your stay, since it is easier and overall faster to access these places from centralized east shore. As for what we liked best and least about the condo, the best was easily the price and location. The least (though hardly a complaint): beaches on the east shore are not the most swimmable/snorkeling friendly, so we had to travel to other beaches to enjoy the water. The other least favorite aspect was the very slow one-lane traffic up and down Kapa'a throughout most of the day. Plan for extra time before leaving. Overall, this place gets five stars from us, though others - who's standards of comfort and luxury are very high - might disagree. This isn't a five-star luxury hotel by any means, but all things considered, it's a winner in our book, being regular folks and all ;)
Great deal in central Kauai

This condo was an excellent choice for us. We wanted to stay in Kapaa because we planned to visit all parts of the island and we had heard the food is the best here. We picked the perfect base from which to make excursions. The condo was furnished well - we were able to prepare our own meals when we wanted to and used the free beach towels and cooler bag provided. The laundry facilities are just across the bottom of the stairs and there is a great fish place called Kilauea Fish Market right next door. It wasn't necessary for us to have an ocean view since we saw so many of the beaches around the island and the beach in front of the hotel isn't really swimmable anyhow. The curtain issue was a bit annoying when we wanted to access the patio but it wasn't enough to deter a 5 star rating. Kristen was very thorough in her emails and enjoyable to make arrangements with. Thank you aloha condos for a great stay.

We really enjoyed our room and surrounding property. Loved the nearby beach and the central location. The Front Desk staff were very helpful and all the staff were friendly and courteous. It makes us want to go back for the staff alone. Our suite was very clean and we left it very clean. There is one minor complaint - it was difficult to pull the curtains back and forth. Also, even though we knew there would not be a stove top in the kitchen, we did miss not having an element to cook. A suggestion to you is to install a one-burner element in the suite. I think it would go a long way, as cooking in the microwave is limiting.

Very well appointed condo. Had all of the amenities needed.
Carol from Southlake, TX on 11/19/2011 said:
This was a wonderful place to stay. It was clean , very quiet and well-equipped. It was close to one of the quietest beaches we came across. It is definetly a repeat option.

Clean apartment. Feels like home when you walk in and had no problems at all. Make sure you ask all guests to read the welcome book on the table.It has very important instructions. It took us sometime to figure out that the internet password was located in the book.

This place was a great find. It had a great price, great location and was just so perfect. The trail that meets up with the paved bike path was a hit. It made our morning runs so enjoyable!We were three friends traveling together and it was just right. The fold out bed realistically sleeps one average size adult comfortably and the bathroom is nice and big. The kitchenette could use some larger mixing/salad bowl type of ware and plater for taking things out to the BBQ. Overall the place was very well kept and clean. The curtains were a bit of a bear and could use some draw strings, or I am afraid someone is going to rip them down :)

Although a little small, this was a great room. It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and located centrally to make day trips so easily accessible. The garden view was beautiful. I do wish the condo information would indicate there are stairs. Fortunately there is only one flight and they are fairly easy.

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay @ this condo. We found the location to be very centric - and would definitely stay here again. You're walking distance to a market, take out restaurants, and 1 formal restaurant next door. Parking was certainly challenging if we left the unit after 4pm. All of the red curbs were filled with cars who also had the permits for the complex - and we never saw a tow truck. The view out of the unit was great - we had garden & ocean views - with a great cross breeze.
Not really a condo!
Pat from Loveland, OH on 03/21/2011 said:
We enjoyed our stay at Islander on the Beach. It's a beautiful setting on the beach and it's hard to beat the value. However, calling it a condo is misleading. It's really just a hotel room, and not a huge one. I've stayed at many hotels, mostly chain hotels, and had much larger "ordinary" hotel rooms than this was. It was clean and comfortable, but we didn't really have a place to put our suitcases. The closet was hard to use for clothes because it is used to store several items for use by the room guests (ironing board, boogie board, blankets, etc. A nice hotel room, just not a condo.
Elissa from Colorado Springs,CO on 03/03/2011 said:
The location was OK as we could indeed see a slice of the ocean.The lack of additional eating utensils and bare bones cooking items to prepare food was substandard...one of the poorest equipped units we have ever stayed in. Opening the sliding door for fresh air was always hampered by the drapery as you had to pull on both in opposite directions to reach the door handle...very strange arrangement.
Location fantastic, ocean view great and great room.

The location is close to Coconut Market, so makes for some fun shopping. The view of the ocean is great. Resturants close driving distance.

very comfortable, met all our needs and then some. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.
Everything we needed
Former locals come back to visit from Oregon on 09/30/2010 said:
Our unit offered everything we needed for our two week stay. It was clean,comfortable and nicely decorated--and the couch, microwave, sink, coffee maker, toaster and refrigerator made it a real studio unit. The air conditioner was silent and effective and the bed was huge. The unit was supplied with extras such as beach towels, dishes and even a blender (do you like pina coladas?). The balcony was spacious, with a table and chairs, but only a garden view. However the unit is very convenient to the beach, pool, laundry and ice machine...really everything a "low maintenance" traveler needs!

The room was exceptionally clean, and the bed was superb -- the best hotel bed ever!
A Wonderful Vacation!
Frequent Kauai visitor from Las Vegas, Nevada on 08/03/2010 said:
When we first entered the condo (#271), we were delighted with the way the condo was decorated. It was beautifully furnished and very clean. We had stayed at Islander on the Beach hotel section last summer and the room wasn&#8217;t as pretty as this condo. The location is central to all parts of the island. There is a Wi-Fi connection for your computer. We went to the pool occasionally. The service from the condo management company was excellent. Our stay at this condo exceeded our expectations. Sincerely, Laraine & Bob D&#8217;Amico (July 22-July 30, 2010)
A wonderful experience!
Terry and Ron from Maui on 04/27/2010 said:
There was nothing about our recent stay in #271 that we did not like. We knew going in that it was a double and sofa bed so the size was not an issue and both were very comfortable. Also knew there was no freezer in the refrigerator but the ice machine was close by. The unit had everything you could need and we would definitely come back for a repeat visit.
Nice place on at a reasonable price
Happy traveler from Central Illinois on 03/18/2010 said:
Clean and neat, only drawback was the bed was a double and not a queen. No toaster oven but micro- oven and fidge worked fine. Extras included a nice lanai (porch), good tv but no time to watch. Ice chest for our trips to see other parts of the island. Plenty of space and couch/futon was handy. Bad parking situation, lot just not big enough. You MUST go to the lobby and window sticker to park overnight and avoid being towed. Location is great because you more or less in the middle of driveable island. Beach is nice buy not swimable. Management was pleasant and helpful.
Amazing location and Condo!

The condo was perfect! It looked just like the photos. My husband and I wanted to relax and we definitely did! The condo is about a one minute walk to the beach. There are beach towels and mats for sun bathing and swimming inside the condo. Along the beach there are beach chairs provided by the Islander on the Beach! We loved sitting outside on the lanai to eat breakfast. We were very surprised that it has a partial ocean view! The condo looked very up to date. There are granite counter tops, stainless steel refrigerator, flat screen TV and we loved the Hawaiian decor! We went shopping at Costco when we arrived on the island. We ate lunch almost every day in the condo. The condo has gas BBQ's on property so we were able to BBQ one night! There is a little shopping mall across the parking lot. The Coconut Marketplace. They have a whole bunch of great shops for souvenirs. Make sure that you walk next door to the Beach Boy hotel and eat at the Hukilau Lanai for dinner. Their fish is very fresh and cooked to perfection! On our last day we were there when the Tsunami warning came. Kristin the property manager warned us at 5 am to get gas in our car and try to get an earlier flight out. We are very thankful that she warned us. She made us feel very well taken care. I would suggest this condo to everyone! Next time we go to Kauai we will stay in condo 271! Mahalo Kristin!
Great Place at a Great Price!

This place was great--quiet, clean, and affordable. The resort is right on the ocean and close to everything Kauai has to offer and the unit was really nicely decorated and comfortable. We will definately be back!
