This property was fantastic. Steps away from a sandy beach, clean room, great views from the balcony

If you are on the fence about this rental or Kauai then hop on over! This condo was in a great location, close to shops, restaurants and and on the beach. Kauai was almost magical to me. I loved every minute there.

Good location and a nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice location and you can hear and see the waves from the room. Beach is 80 yards away. Good central location which is nice to get anywhere on the island. We still put 900 miles on our car in 3 weeks getting to hikes and beaches. The beach here is okay but dirty and not for kids. Rough waves and sharp coral not far out. Snorkeling here was okay and we did see some fish but again if your a novice be careful with the waves which may throw you onto sharp coral. Walking distance to shops and food which is great. We also were able to do a daily 3/4 mile jog north along the ocean that cut through other property and woods which was nice.The air in the room worked great. The bed mattress wasn't firm enough for a belly sleeper like myself but I managed. Bring good rain gear to get the most out of your trip including rain pants, especially if you want to hike to great waterfalls and look-outs like us. Clouds and rain seemed to come and go constantly all over the island. The road just past Hanalei was closed due to flooding and will be closed for another month or two. This hampered our return to the Kalalau trail hike often rated number one for views and it's pretty easy for kids. We did the 12 mile Nualolo Awaawapuhi loop which provided views you won't see anywhere else and the birds singing in the forest was quite nice. However, 3 miles back up hill in mud was tough so don't do it unless you are in good shape. The Pihea trail looped into the Alakai Swamp trail was nice with some great views, just a little mud and surprisingly no bugs. About 7 miles round trip and not bad for kids. just a few stairs and it's mostly board walk. The canyon trail was another good one to the top of the falls. Hiking boots and walking sticks helped a lot. We were so glad we just didn't sit at the pool and beach all day. We figured we could do that at home and we ended up seeing great things we would have missed, even though we got wet and muddy a couple times. In fact most of my socks still have the red dirt stains but every time I put them on I smile thinking about our trip. Owners were very responsive to questions and easy to work with which was appreciated. The only thing we really could have used were lounge chairs which were not always easy to find on the beach during midday. We did borrow some a couple times from Lava Lava next door. BTW, if you want to eat there you'll need to make a reservation since they fill up fast.

Location is everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is centrally located and on this trip I did not rent a car. There is plenty to see and do just in Kapaa. Islander on the Beach is a perfect location with many things within a short walking distance. This unit was clean and well stocked with lots of towels and extra pillows. There were large bottles of shampoo and conditioner and full size bars of soap. There was plenty of dish soap too. Toilet paper and paper towels were plentiful so no need to restock on day 3 like many places I have stayed. Having a second small refrigerator is a big plus and it even has a tiny freezer compartment for the ice cream and ice cubes---hard to find in most studio units. Most of all, the owners are a delight to work with and that is the most important thing in selecting a place. The price is wonderful and you get an ocean view from your lanai and ocean sounds all day long when the slider is open----pure heaven!!

We were very happy with our condo rental at Islander on the Beach! The condo was very comfortable, it had everything that we needed. The location was great! Being close to the water and also having some amenities close by, like some restaurants and an ABC store was really helpful. Don was very easy to deal with, answering any questions we had and continuing to check in after we had arrived. The many helpful signs and binder in the condo were great as well. We hope to be able to stay at this condo again next time we are in Kauai. Thanks very much for your hospitality, Don & Christina! D & J

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This unit was lovely. Not huge, and the cooking facilities were limited, but the lanai with a side view of the ocean, the resort itself, the beach which was only steps away was wonderful. Something about that great Hawaiian decor, especially the quilt, made the unit special. Everything in good shape and well maintained and clean. Highly recommend. The beach in front of the resort was perfect, wonderfully sandy, and swimmable once you got used to the waves and the reefs. Location was excellent for exploring north and south. Kapaa can be busy traffic wise, never did figure out the patterns but it was all good. Take out or fancy dining, steps away. Also every building in the resort is built in a way to maximize privacy for each lanai so that guests are not facing each other. A little tricky to find in the dark! Could be better signage on the highway. :) Great place.
