Oceanfront & Beachfront Studio with Kitchenette and Full Bath

Aloha and welcome to our Kauai island paradise!

Our beachfront studio condo is on the top floor (3rd floor) at the Islander on the Beach in Kapa'a, Kauai, and ffers amazing panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

Enjoy your morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the lanai while watching the whales (in season), dolphins, and gorgeous sunrises. Let the sound of the ocean waves lull you to sleep every night.

Our condo is situated on the East Shore, just a 10 minute drive from the airport. The East Shore is the ideal home base for exploring the North and South Shores, and is minutes away from numerous gorgeous mountain hiking trails.

This studio condo offers many of the comforts of home, including air conditioning, a comfy queen bed, and a pullout sofa bed (twin size mattress, sleeps 1). The modern and updated kitchenette has a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, dishes/silverware, and cooking utensils.

Our condo is on the 3rd floor of a 3 story building. There is no elevator.

The Islander on the Beach offers a beach side swimming pool and hot tub, and a tiki pool bar where you can quench your thirst with a delicious tropical drink.

The Islander on the Beach is located next to the Coconut Marketplace, where you'll find restaurants, cafes, specialty stores, and more. Take advantage of our location on the beautiful Kauai Bike Path, where you can jog, walk or ride a bike along the ocean. Enjoy nearby local farmer's markets, paddle boarding in the Wailua River, hikes to scenic waterfalls, and other outdoor activities during your stay.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous island, room was nice and clean and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Khaled, the owner, was so helpful and responsive whenever we had questions before and during our trip! The place was quaint and beautiful and clean. They supplied beach chairs and beach mats and boogie boards and an ice chest, snorkel gear, guide books, essential cooking supplies, and more! We didn't get to use the boogie boards as we were so busy, but we used the small ice chest for picnics and just to have cold drinks as we explored the island. We plan on returning in the next year or two. Highly recommend it!

Fantastic Honeymoon Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for the Kauai portion of our honeymoon and we could not have been more pleased. The view was fantastic, the pool at The Islander had one of the best pool bars we've ever been to, and the location on the east side of the island is perfect. Driving to just about any other major part of the island from The Islander is about 45 minutes max (and every drive is absolutely gorgeous). Khaled and Heather were fantastic hosts, they left a bunch of resources for ideas of things to do and great places to eat that are more locals only that tourist spots. The quality of the condo is amazing, and one of the best valued rooms we found while researching. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Fabulous and Flawless Little Diamond!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing about this property listing that is exaggerated. It is EXACTLY as presented and I think that is important. Upon our entry, the condo was spotless. Further, the entire complex is well kept. The owners also left the most complete set of instructions and helpful hints I've ever seen. Plus, Khaled even has YouTube videos if you need a little visual help on the property! The condo has a complete set of beach toys for your enjoyment. Lots of good eating establishments within a few miles. Strong wifi, great AC, comfortable bed, plenty of towels, good water pressure, and a nice little welcome gift. I wanted to take that hula girl lamp but I'm not a thief and I couldn't fit it in my luggage anyway. :) I've already recommended this condo to one of my friends who is looking for a quiet, well kept property on Kauai. Thank you Khaled and Heather for a wonderful experience. My wife and I loved our five days there.

The best place we stayed in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

After visiting the Big Island and Oahu, we ended our trip in Kauai. This property was by far the best value of any of the places we stayed. It is centrally located on the island and since there is only one major road on the island, it made it possible to visit the entire island in a reasonable amount of time. The property the condo is on is absolutely stunning and the staff there are very professional and nice. With the option of cooking in the condo, you don't have to go out to eat for every meal. There is, however, a lot of restaurant options nearby. There is seriously so much to do in Hawaii and you will not regret your decision to book here.
