Dishes, silverware, spices in cupboard, cleaning products as well as paper products, even paper plates. There was even a wine opener, which we appreciated, as well as a blender for smoothies, using the fruit products from the local farm market.When we noticed the cooler was missing, a phone call and we had a new one to use.

Pleasantly surprised to find a toaster oven and microwave! Loved using the beach chairs and boogey boards. Air conditioner worked when we needed it. Couple of things that can be improved; Closet had a weird smell - something needs to be done about that. WiFi stopped working the second day into our stay. Bigger beach towels would be great.

The condo was in excellent condition - well maintained and well equipped for a studio apartment style. Our condo was privately owned and the owners, without ever meeting them, made us feel very welcome. Upon arrival we found a nice "goody bag". Plenty of linens were available for use, as well as beach items.

This condo is very quiet with a great oceanfront location. Very clean and functional with plenty of towels and the small "kitchen" is pretty well supplied. Only very small issue was that the air conditioner was making a little bit of noise as the vent moved - but I did not ask for help because it did not keep me awake. I don't normally write reviews, but appreciated how responsive the owner was to my queries.

For our last two days in Kauai, we stayed in #137 at the Islander on the Beach and were very happy with the condo. We also appreciated the good communication & efforts from the VRBO representative who helped to get us in slightly earlier than anticipated. The condo was very clean and all features in good working order and as described in the rental advertisement.
