About Khaled & Heather Jafar

Kauai is our home away from home. We treasure the laid-back Aloha spirit of the Kauai culture, revere the spectacular wildlife of the ocean and forests, and are in constant awe of the tropical beauty of this quiet, peaceful island.

This photo of us was taken just a few feet in front of the condo, on peaceful Waipouli Beach!

Khaled & Heather Jafar purchased this condo in 2014

Why Khaled & Heather Jafar chose Kapaa

There is nothing more satisfying for us than spending time on our condo's lanai taking in all the wonderful direct ocean views and listening to the relaxing sounds of the surf. Our condo is also central to both the North and South shores and minutes away from spectacular rain forest hikes, making it the ideal location for exploring all of Kauai.

What makes this condo unique

We find that our favorite place to watch wales (in season) is from the comfort of our own lanai. With the ocean just steps from the lanai, there's nothing quite as soothing as falling asleep to the sound of the surf every night. Finally, the sunrises from the lanai are spectacular! Please refer to our other Kauai Islander on the Beach listings #788753 and #1001239.

Fabulous ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 3 nights at the Islander on the Beach unit. It was absolutely amazing! Even better than advertised! The unit is perfect for 2 people, with all the handy kitchen gadgets you need, as well as, ice chest, beach chairs, beach towels - for your use. We appreciated that all the communication was accurate and we had no problems getting into the condo or checking out. We loved the lanai and the expansive ocean view. Sipping coffee in the morning, watching the sunrise and seeing the spouting of the whales was magical! The Coconut Marketplace, which is literally steps away, provided us with many eateries, tourist shops and a grocery/type market where we could get about anything we needed - all without having to get into our car! AWESOME! We love Kauai and would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a convenient location for exploring the island. - Laurie

Absolutely perfect! The location could not be more ideal!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary, and it was wonderful. The condo was well stocked with everything we could have possibly needed, and the location right on the beachfront was incredible! We loved being able to have the sliding door open and listen to the ocean at night, and hang out on the Lanai watching the sunrise. It is also close to some great restaurants and The Coconut Marketplace, which was very useful. I'd recommend this place without any hesitations!

Excellent condo with exceptional oceanfront views. Whales, whales , whales while we were there. Condo was the perfect size for two and had all the things you need for a nice stay. Property grounds were exceptional as was the complex as a whole. Perfect location with nice shopping and amenities within walking distance. Thanks for the opportunity to stay here during our trip.

Excellent Place to Stay

The condo was very nice and had everything we needed. Out of all the rooms we've stayed in at this location, this condo had by far the best view. We really wish we had spent more time here.
