Greet each day with a gorgeous sunrise on the water and start planning your island exploration. Or relax at the beautifully landscaped 6 acre oceanfront Islander on the Beach Resort where you will find my 2nd floor ocean view end unit condo, #222. Enjoy air conditioned comfort inside the 372sf studio or relax with ocean breezes on the roomy lanai (balcony) while reading a book or sipping a beverage on the welcoming bistro set.
Comfort and style inside include travertine floors, granite counters, queen bed, and full size sleeper sofa. Prepare small meals with the microwave, blender, toaster oven, and mini-fridge with freezer compartment. There's a coffee maker and tea kettle also. Nearby BBQs give nice cooking options instead of eating out every night. Enjoy your barbecued food at the adjacent picnic tables or while lounging at the beach, pool, or spa. You'll find a bar for tropical drinks and music poolside while next door are more dining and drinking choices.
2nd floor end unit in 3 story building means more privacy with one less shared wall and the extra side window allows more natural light and better ocean views. My Islander on the Beach #222 suite has 372 square feet of living space plus the lanai of about 67 square feet. A comfy queen bed and full sized sleeper sofa accommodates up to 4 people. Prepare simple meals with the microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, and fridge. Outdoor barbecues are nearby at the pool area!
Samsung LED TV with cable TV, free high speed WiFi, and Blue Ray DVD player(with nearby Redbox rental kiosk) will entertain you when you are not venturing out.
Tranquil sunrises greet you daily and make a great start to a relaxing day. Enjoy the ocean breezes too! Go for a walk on the long beach or lounge around the pool. Island exploration is easy too from this central location on the Coconut coast. With northern points like Princeville or south to Poipu all reachable in 45 minutes of leisurely driving.
Many of my guests say they love to leave the side window open and sliding door to the balcony ajar at night to enjoy the fresh air and sounds of the waves.
You can arrive at the suite at any hour after the designated check in time. The front desk is serviced until 11pm but you can go directly to the room if you come in late. You have full use of the pool, hot tub, and barbecues. Don't forget to relax at the Tiki Bar too.

Feel free to contact me as I am happy to answer questions. I am located in southern California. There is an on island contact as a backup for questions or concerns. The suite will contain WiFi and contact information and I will send it to you prior to your arrival along with how to obtain the key.
Adjacent to Coconut Marketplace including an ABC Store with gourmet market, restaurants, hula lessons, and shops. The popular Trees Lounge and Lava Lava Beach Club are next door for some cool libations, tasty pupus(appetizers), and local music. Easy walk to more shops, drug store, groceries, and restaurants in Kapaa town. Next door to bike and kayak rentals store. Nearby laundromat in town.
My fridge now has a freezer and I supply a couple ice packs and cooler to help make your road trips more comfortable.
The golden beaches of the Coconut Coast may be the area's biggest draw. Unwind at Anahola Beach Park, whale watch at Donkey Beach, or join the surfers at Kealia Beach to the north. 3 waterfalls are less than 15 minutes away. Lydgate Beach Park in Wailua has two lava rock enclosed ocean pools that are perfect places for families and first-time snorkelers. The beach at the resort is best for walking.
My suite is located in a quiet part of the resort...not too close to the pool or shops but close enough, if you know what I mean. And being on the 2nd floor means good privacy and views.

Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
• Is this a 1 bedroom condominium?
The Islander on the Beach is a condotel managed by Aston. All of the rooms are individually owned with some being rented by Aston, and others like mine, being rented out by the individual owners or offsite property managers. My suite is studio size: 372 square feet with a lanai. Most units are about this size and have similar furnishings. There is a kitchenette in the room: fridge with freezer, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and blender. Use the outdoor barbeques to expand your dining options and I have ice packs with a cooler for cool drinks and snacks on the go.
A nice Laundromat is just south of Foodland and is clean with coin machines available.
• What's the difference between my suite, renting from Aston, or some other travel agency or website?
The difference is price and choice of room. My suite is less expensive overall and is a 2nd floor end unit with ocean views in the Hawaii building so you know exactly what you are getting. I also take more care in ensuring my suite is updated and maintained thoroughly. You will not have maid service during your stay but we stock plenty of towels(bath and beach), tissues, toilet paper, and toiletries to ensure your comfort. You can contact me if you would like additional supplies or any extra cleaning services.
• Is this an ocean view suite?
YES. And it is not just visible out on the lanai sticking your head around the corner but can also be enjoyed from inside the suite.
• Is there a kitchen?
It is a mini kitchen with microwave, toaster oven, blender, bar sized fridge with freezer, and coffee maker. BBQs are located next to the pool.
• What is there to do?
For short stays, you may want to keep it simple and stay at the resort for a relaxing time and walk over to the Coconut Marketplace or into Kapaa town. For longer stays, you will want a car to explore the beautiful scenery and variety found on Kauai. Book a rental car ahead of time since they are sometimes in short supply. You may find Alamo with the best rates
