About the property

Nothing's better than Oceanfront! This studio is just right for you.

Thank you for visiting our listing! We hope you enjoy learning about all what this oceanfront studio has to offer. We have 2 direct oceanfront studios at this complex. This is our top floor unit, the other is a ground floor studio and is VRBO 731132.

Now it's time for you to begin your Hawaiian adventure!

Aloha! Welcome to your piece of paradise! Your plane lands on the Garden Isle. After a scenic six mile drive, you park your car under the cover of the monkey pod trees and pass through the lovely teak wood lobby. There's no need to stand in line at the front desk. Enter the tropically landscaped courtyard; there are six pristine acres to enjoy. Smell the flowers, see the inviting pool and shimmering ocean - there's so much to explore. But you want to get to your room to see your view and where your home will be for your much anticipated vacation. Your keys are waiting for you in a lock-box outside your door. Turn the key, open the door and there it is - the gorgeous, glistening ocean. Set down your bags and head to the lanai. Slide open the door, hear the waves, smell the sea air, feel the gentle breeze. Ah, paradise!

Back inside, your unit has everything you need to have a great relaxing time. A comfortable king bed and full sized fold out sleeper make for a good night's rest. The stocked kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, electric tea kettle and coffee maker is there for your convenience. There's even a 43" flat screen TV with over 200 digital cable channels, blue ray player and Netflix. Free in room high speed WiFi will keep you in touch if you'd like. But best of all, there's an incredible view. It's not just an ocean view, its ocean front!

Wake to the beautiful sunrise of the day - each one is different. Grab a cup of coffee from our 12 cup coffee maker and head to the beach. Let the sand get between your toes as you stroll along one of the best walking beaches on the Island. Get a bite to eat at one of the local establishments. Then it's off for the adventure of the day. You can venture to any place on the island from the central location of Kapaa. Explore the exotic Na Pali coastline in search of secluded beaches and spectacular waterfalls or climb the face of the fabled Sleeping Giant, just don't wake him! If you would rather just enjoy the day and chill poolside, or on the beach then let the warm sun sooth you as you work on your tan. The choice is yours! As the sun goes down, be refreshed with a cool drink from the Tiki Bar or relax on your lanai as the sky is painted in magnificent yellows, oranges and reds. Leave the cooking and cleaning behind and take a short walk to many of the wonderful restaurants nearby. End your evening listening to the sounds of the waves lapping on the beach. Ah, paradise!

Whether it's your first trip to the island or your tenth, this is the perfect place to stay. It's a great place to get away from the stress of work and home and for the family to play and make memories that will last a lifetime. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, this is the place! Perhaps you're just looking for a place to refresh and renew and enjoy the outdoors. Kauai is famous for its natural beauty and has more miles of beach and Hiking Trails than any other of the Hawaiian Islands. If you like to hike, Kauai offers a mecca of trails that vary from 3000' ridge and cliff trails to traversing along the gorgeous Na Pali coastline. Some trails take you for a stroll along the beach; some take you for a journey into Waimea Canyon or into the world's highest upland swamp, while others climb to thousands of feet above sea level providing you a view that is simply breathtaking. It's no wonder movie makers love Kauai with its spectacular scenery. Kauai has been the backdrop to many Hollywood movies including: Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Soul Surfer, Six Days Seven Nights, South Pacific, Honeymoon in Vegas, Tropic Thunder and many more. The waterfalls shown on Fantasy Island become your reality.

Maybe you're just looking for a place to rest and relax. Get away from it all. You can find that here. Kauai is less crowded and quieter than some of the other islands.

Maybe you're the adventurous type and are looking for an exciting once in a lifetime thrill. It's here waiting for you!

The sounds of the ocean waves lapping against the sand are calling you. Some of the best beaches in the world are yours to enjoy. The fresh air, gentle trade winds and desire to spend time in paradise bring a smile to your face.

Kauai offers it all. This is the place you've been looking for.

It's affordable too:







U.S. News & World Report listed Kauai a “Top 5 Best Beach Honeymoon Destination” noting the island’s beautiful parks, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling.

Kauai was recently recognized as the most romantic place to celebrate an anniversary by USA Today's 10 Best Awards.

Ah, paradise!

About David Hatfield

Have you ever wondered what your travel dollars support? Do they go to a large corporation or perhaps a wealthy landlord? We're a bit different. Seven years ago we started a nonprofit and our primary ministry is a preschool for children ages 3-6 that live at a garbage dump. The funds we receive from this unit helps provide an income for us to continue our efforts to serve the poor around the world.

Next year we are entering a new season in our lives. Our kids will be grown and off to college which will allow us to spend more time at our preschool. Our plan is to sell our traditional home in California and when we are not serving abroad, we will use short term vacation rentals as our 'home base'. So the place you are staying in is not just a 'rental' to us, it's also our home. I bet you never thought you could have a vacation in paradise and support children in need at the same time. Thank you for choosing this beautiful place to stay.

David Hatfield purchased this condo in 2014

Why David Hatfield chose Kapaa

This place is so healing and soothing for us. Where else can you be a few yards from a sandy beach and yet have the privacy of a top floor unit? It's a place that we come to rest and relax from the taxing environments in which we serve. We love the convenience of all of the amenities that are on the property or within a short stroll.

Perfect spot for a lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here - the location was perfect, as it's situated approximately mid-way between the south shore/poipu area and the north shore/Hanalei bay. There are some great restaurants in the area and it was absolutely blissful waking up in the morning to the sound of waves and being able to eat breakfast on the lanai looking directly out onto the ocean! The beach in front is lovely to relax at, the condo as well as the condo complex is extremely well maintained and dave & kim were extremely hospitable via email, ensuring that we had everything we needed. Would recommend it in a heartbeat!

We loved the unit and Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a short drive from the airport and easy to find. The accommodation was very clean and everything was exactly as described. The unit was well situated so that we were about to easily tour the island.

An Amazing Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible first time trip to Kauai and felt blessed to have found this wonderful condo right on the beach. The beautiful grounds, spectacular view and sounds of the waves at night made this true paradise! The location was perfect. We ventured both north and south of the condo, enjoying all the beaches and quaint towns along the way. We found great hiking and snorkeling spots all within short distances. We enjoyed local restaurants such as Lava Lava next door as well as grilling by the pool. The setting was relaxed, friendly and peaceful. The condo was perfect and had sufficient supplies including chairs and soft ice chest for day trips. Owner Dave was beyond welcoming and responded immediately to any questions. I can not wait to visit Kauai again and stay at this "amazing get away" !

A Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay in Kapaa because of it's proximity to everything with it's central location. Aston Islander is a great location right on the beach. The beach is never crowded. Restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away. There are walls on each side of the lanai, so you do not see your neighbors. Excellent air conditioning. All of the units at this condo are very small with only microwaves. toaster ovens and refrigerators. The refrigerator at this unit is smaller than any refrigerator I have ever used and that is including in hotel rooms. Know before you go: You can barely stand a pint of creamer up in the main part and can only fit a quart standing up in the door, so for a typical stay of 7 + days, you will absolutely need a cooler. We purchased things such as beverages and snacks at Costco which is on the way to the condo and could not fit much in, so we went back out and purchased a cooler at Walmart to put our water, etc. in. Also, there are limited plugs for your electronics. The side lamp shares the kitchenette plug with the coffee maker, etc., so a multi outlet wall mount would be handy if you have one. Even with some of the minor inconveniences, you just cannot beat this complex location and we would return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us Rochelle. We're glad you had a great time and enjoyed the central location of the resort which allows for easy exploration of the entire island. We were sorry to hear you were disappointed in the size of the refrigerator. Our studio has the largest refrigerator allowed by our HOA and is the same size as the other 200 in our complex. We were surprised to hear that any lamp would be plugged into the kitchenette area since there is a plug behind both the bed and the sofa. We recently updated all of the wall outlets to a modern style when we remodeled the unit with fresh paint, wall art, drapes, single sleeper sofa, and enhanced kitchenette. It's a great unit and is only one of 20 top floor direct ocean front condos in the entire complex. Thanks again for staying with us.

Very beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The ocean view was perfect, the sound of the waves at night comforting. The only 2 things I had a difficult time with was that there was no elevator ( going up and down to and from 3rd floor several times a day was challenging for me) and the mattress was a bit too firm for me. Everything else was great. Thank heavens for the AC!
