  • First Trip to Kauai & Loved It

    "Islander on the Beach was perfectly located to explore all parts of the island. Unit 224 had the ocean view we wanted with unobstructed view of the ocean and being able to hear the ocean waves. Parking was only slightly inconvenient. On a 4 night stay, we had to park in the Coconut Marketplace lot once. While the signs said you would be towed, the property said as long as you have the property parking permit, we were fine. The unit itself was clean and well stocked. The decor was outdated, but was not to the point of being a turnoff. It didn't have a stove for light cooking, but it didn't matter to us since we were out from early morning to late at night enjoying the food throughout the island. If you want to cook your own meals, you are limited to a toaster oven and I think a microwave. Visiting in July was quite warm and the AC unit didn't seem to work well unless you stood right in front of it. This wasn't a big deal since we only stayed in the unit to sleep. Our only real complaint is the bed. It squeaks loudly and we woke up stiff each morning. If a bed is high quality for a good sleep, any other deficiencies are easily overlooked. This includes high quality sheets and a modern white or solid light color bed duvet cover. Just a little advice to the owner. The beach at the property was beautiful. Sunrise each morning is priceless. The sand was deep and coarse, and the waves were quite strong. This was fine for my wife and I, but may not be the best for young children. Walking a little farther down the beach, there was a nice area for the whole family. There was a nice pool side bar, pool and shower. Having an ABC store next door at the Coconut Marketplace was very convenient. Longs Drug Store, Safeway, and even Starbucks was just a few blocks away. If you want a delicious oceanfront meal, go to Dukes next to the Marriott Resort. Its a few miles away south of the airport and worth the experience. We had the Seared Ahi and Monchong Fish dinner for one of the best overall dining experiences we've had in a long time. The price of the unit was affordable and fair for an island central location and oceanfront view. We would return in a heartbeat if the unit gets a new bed. This is the only thing that prevents us from returning. If you need a 3-4 star hotel quality decor and features, this may not be the place, but if you are fine with a cozy, clean and budget friendly place to stay while visiting Kauai, we highly recommend it."

  • Wonderful location for families

    "This was our second trip to Lae Nani but the first with our kids. We chose a ground level unit so that the kids could be outside on the grass and we could easily supervise them. This unit was ideal for that purpose. The unit had everything that we needed including beach supplies and toys which was great. The washer and dryer was a huge convenience as well. The buildings were having new roofing installed during our visit (obviously not the owners fault) which made it noisy starting at 8am on the dot. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend so at least those 3 days were quiet. We were out and about the island most days anyway so that wasn't so bad. Also the owner was very generous and compensated us for the hassle. After a long day of traveling with children, when I finally get to the room, I would like to just come in, throw down our bags, and enjoy that peaceful moment of "we made it." Unfortunately, at 3:45 when we arrived the cleaning person was still inside cleaning and doing laundry. She left shortly after and was polite but that was just slightly annoying. In her defense, when she showed up at 9:30 on checkout morning and saw we were still there, she told us we could stay past the 10am checkout time until 4pm. That was very helpful considering our flight didn't leave until 9pm. Overall it was still a fantastic stay. Thank you."

  • Sweet, funky, quiet spot

    "This cottage is REALLY right on the beach! Do not book it if you're looking for luxury accommodations, though. It's quiet and comfortable, but it's not the Sheraton. We used the grill several times to cook dinner, and spent every morning sipping coffee on the front porch, watching the waves crash onto the reef at Baby Beach. Larry is very responsive and will fix minor issues quickly. The location really can't be beat. I think the chipped plates and bowls need to be replaced."

  • Oceanfront Lae Nani

    "We have visited the island many times and have stayed many places but this is our new favorite. We love the convenient location on the East coast. It was not far from the airport for the late flights in and a great location for many activities (kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling, shopping), close to lots of great restaurants, and not to far to enjoy the west or north side of the island. Although it is close to everything when you are at the condo it is very quiet and peaceful in the complex. We enjoyed our morning walks on the grounds and the beaches and strolling over to the coconut market's farmers market to buy produce. The condo is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed including a great view. The owners were great at providing us with accurate and detailed information of what was there and how to get there. We love the place and are looking forward to coming back again!"
