Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous ambiance with the ocean waves constantly crashing on the gorgeous beach. Will return to Kauai since this time was our first on this island. Explored the entire island and enjoyed Anini nd Ke'e Beaches adn the daily farmers market with delicious foods and fresh produce. Traveled here with our daughter, son-in-law and 8 month old baby boy. This is their 4th time at the Islander. Hope to return with baby can walk and enjoy the beaches. Thank you for the awesome, well stocked condo!

Great Room and Experience

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice room, with beautiful beachfront views (where we can watch the sun rise every morning), easy access to the island's main road (Kapaa is "central" and you can reach most of the island in an hour or less), and a straightforward check-in/out process. The room contained everything we needed for our 4-day stay.

The only shortcoming with the room is that it seems too well sealed, such that nothing in the room dries. It also leaves a "wet" smell to the room, which we dealt with by leaving the balcony door open when we were in the condo.

One extra plus for the room is its inclusion in the Aston resort. Aston has a few services, and the poolside bar also has live music put on by locals once a week.

Overall, we had a great experience.

First Trip to Kauai & Loved It

  • 4 of 5

Islander on the Beach was perfectly located to explore all parts of the island. Unit 224 had the ocean view we wanted with unobstructed view of the ocean and being able to hear the ocean waves. Parking was only slightly inconvenient. On a 4 night stay, we had to park in the Coconut Marketplace lot once. While the signs said you would be towed, the property said as long as you have the property parking permit, we were fine.

The unit itself was clean and well stocked. The decor was outdated, but was not to the point of being a turnoff. It didn't have a stove for light cooking, but it didn't matter to us since we were out from early morning to late at night enjoying the food throughout the island. If you want to cook your own meals, you are limited to a toaster oven and I think a microwave. Visiting in July was quite warm and the AC unit didn't seem to work well unless you stood right in front of it. This wasn't a big deal since we only stayed in the unit to sleep. Our only real complaint is the bed. It squeaks loudly and we woke up stiff each morning. If a bed is high quality for a good sleep, any other deficiencies are easily overlooked. This includes high quality sheets and a modern white or solid light color bed duvet cover. Just a little advice to the owner.

The beach at the property was beautiful. Sunrise each morning is priceless. The sand was deep and coarse, and the waves were quite strong. This was fine for my wife and I, but may not be the best for young children. Walking a little farther down the beach, there was a nice area for the whole family. There was a nice pool side bar, pool and shower. Having an ABC store next door at the Coconut Marketplace was very convenient. Longs Drug Store, Safeway, and even Starbucks was just a few blocks away. If you want a delicious oceanfront meal, go to Dukes next to the Marriott Resort. Its a few miles away south of the airport and worth the experience. We had the Seared Ahi and Monchong Fish dinner for one of the best overall dining experiences we've had in a long time.

The price of the unit was affordable and fair for an island central location and oceanfront view. We would return in a heartbeat if the unit gets a new bed. This is the only thing that prevents us from returning. If you need a 3-4 star hotel quality decor and features, this may not be the place, but if you are fine with a cozy, clean and budget friendly place to stay while visiting Kauai, we highly recommend it.

Our best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

First off, we apologize in being so late after our trip in posting here, Julie. (Vacation was January 20th thru Feb 1, 2016)......So we've been to Kauai before but room 224 made this trip 100 times better than the previous trip! Hearing, seeing, and smelling the ocean waves every single minute that you are in the room is simply magnificent. It MADE the whole trip! The location is possibly the best on the island and the room was clean and in the exact same condition as you see in the pictures. Quite frankly, this was the best vacation either one of has had in our lives and it's all because of Julie's incredible room 224 and it's proximity (50 feet) to the beautiful ocean! Thank you, Julie!!!!!

Oceanfront worth it

  • 5 of 5

We loved our ocean front room and because of the constant ocean sounds, we never once heard a rooster! Room was comfy but literally the view and closeness to the water was the sell. Kapaa is centrally located to allow full exploration of the island!

Wonderful stay at Islander on the Beach, Condo 224, Kauai

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed 7 nights at Condo 224 in late March, early April, 2016. We expected a "bare bones" accommodation, and were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the door. Very pleasant art graced the walls; microwave, convection oven, and fridge gave us at-home (simple) meal options; furnishings and bathroom were clean and attractive. We enjoyed an ocean view and trade wind breeze from our second floor balcony. Neighbors were all quiet and considerate. I slept better in the condo than I do at my quiet and pleasant Seattle home. Owner was very accommodating, allowing us to extend our stay by one day. Location was convenient to numerous eateries within walking distance, and well situated for Island car touring. I plan to stay in 224 on future visits, and to recommend it to family and friends who visit Kauai.
