About the property

Affordable Ocean view Beachfront Condo! Just steps to the beach!

Kapaa is in such a wonderful location on Kauai, you can easily get over to the west side and visit Waimea canyon, or up to the north side and the little town of Hanalei! Or, stay right in Kapaa and explore the Wailua river, or relax on one of the many beaches or bike on the 11 miles of bike trail!

Enjoy almost ocean facing beachfront living from our cozy little condo for a fraction of the cost at large resorts! Our studio condo is amazingly versatile and comfortable. It's equipped with a queen sized comfy bed, and a brand new full sized sleeper sofa. Leave your slider open at night and let the waves breaking, lull you to sleep, the best white noise in the world! Large flat screen TV for keeping up with the world at large, or your favorite movie! Microwave, coffeepot, dishes, silverware, linens are all there ready for your use! We also keep beach chairs, a cooler and beach towels in the unit for you while you are there! All the comforts of home! Stay in and grill on the barbecue, or go out to eat at one of the many local, close by, restaurants! This condo truly makes for an affordable vacation! Motel 6 in California costs you $70 a night! We'd rather be in Kauai any day!

Our Hawaii state tax ID # is TA-060-878-4384-01. We have a wonderful "on island" contact, and her number is posted in the condo "just in case" there is a need while you are there!

About Jeff and Danise Rapetti

We are the Rapetti's, Jeff and Danise. We have 5 kids, two daughters in law, and three adorable grandsons. Jeff is a general contractor, and an accomplished chain saw artist. Danise teaches at the local junior college in the registered nursing program. We feel very blessed to have this condo in Kauai. Five years ago, we would not have thought it possible, but God is very good! Our picture here is from our recent trip to Kenya where we spent a month helping at Maisha Mapya Preschool, check us out on Facebook! It is a wonderful preschool which gives education to children who live in the Gioto dump in Nakuru, Kenya. Our condo here, is one thing that helps us support the school and the teachers and staff who work there.

Jeff and Danise Rapetti purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jeff and Danise Rapetti chose Kapaa

We love Kapaa and the east side of Kauai. Islander on the Beach is a true description of this condo complex! Our condo is on the second floor, so you can look at the blue pacific from the lanai, you can listen to the waves crash on the shore, all night long if you want! We freely leave the sliding glass door open, just so we can listen to the waves when we are there. Enjoy coffee on the lanai in the morning, and watch the sun come up over the water! There is nothing more peaceful.

What makes this condo unique

Islander on the beach is close to everything in Kapaa! Truly, if you are motivated, you can walk anywhere! The bike path goes from Lydgate State Park, all the way past downtown Kapaa. There is just one small section that is still a dirt/sand trail. (literally 30 yds). The Coconut Marketplace with restaurants and shopping is right in front. Beaches are everywhere! What more could you want!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice and quiet, great walls in the mornings, was rather cool , but we did get in some good beach and ocean time! Be sure to do the Blue Hawaii helicopter ride, we've done these before, but this was amazing. Thanks again for a great time.

Mother/Daughter Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The condo worked great for me and my two teenage daughters. It is clean, well maintained, and has all the basic necessities for simple meal preparation. The owners were incredibly easy to contact and work with; very helpful and accommodating both before and during our stay. We loved being steps from the ocean, and having the bonus pool and hot tub, pool bar, and resort facilities. The location on the east coast of Kauai turned out to be perfect for us. Because of the central island location, we were able to drive north, south, and a little west without making each trip be an entire day's commitment. Also, it is a beautiful part of the island to be on for the majority of a vacation. We used the on-site concierge extensively; was an absolute godsend. Took full advantage of the Coconut Marketplace in front of the resort - shops, eateries, rental/tour companies all located within 100 yards of the condo. Conveniently located close (driving distance) to grocery stores, drug stores, various restaurants and fast food. Highly recommended for a couple, a family with 1 or 2 small children, or parent/child setup like ours, due to the sleeping accommodations.

Great place by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this clean, comfortable apartment by the ocean. The bed was fantastic and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean at night with just the screen door closed . If you've been to an all -inclusive in the Caribbean , then the apartment/complex will feel very similar. There is a grocery/market that serves great food nearby as well as restaurants and shops a 3 minute walk away. The first shop you see is a coffee place which was great to grab in the morning and watch the sunrise on our balcony . The laundry room in the complex was only for guests of the larger complex, so throw a load on in town and have a Mai Tai nearby while waiting . We would definitely stay here again.

Centrally located only 5 miles from the Lihue Airport. It's easy to visit both the North Shore and the Napali Coast, along with the East Coast and Waimea Canyon along with all the fun in between! Equally convienent in being next to the Coconut Marketplace for some easy shopping and dining! Only a short walk to a Safeway and a Starbucks.

A favorite spot only two minutes away, is the Wailua River for kayaking, standup paddleboarding and boating to Fern Grotto and Secret Falls! You don't want to miss the Smith Family Luau for the best food and show on Kauai!

A quick 5 minute drive takes you to Lydgate Park for lifeguarded swimming with a lagoon for small children to enjoy the ocean or for anyone to snorkle! Also a playground for kids to enjoy.
