About the property

Oceanfront Studio, Sleeps 4

Aloha and welcome to Kauai at the beautiful Islander on the Beach. Our unit 349 is a top floor oceanfront suite facing the beach with panoramic views of the crystal clear Pacific Ocean. This is by far one of the best units in this low density plantation setting.

Our unit features travertine stone floors throughout, granite countertops, mahogany style cabinets, air conditioning, wet bar, island-style furnishings, kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Also features a king size tempurpedic bed, full size pull out sofa bed, TV with cable, Audo system for Ipad and Iphone.

Why John Arria chose Kapaa

This location is one of the most unique beachfront properties on the island of Kauai. It's hard to find a place to stay at this price right on the beach, top floor oceanfront and a great Tempurpedic king size bed.

If you're looking for a stress-free vacation that involves breathtaking views, turquoise-colored water and pristine beaches galore, look no further! John and Jill are the friendliest and most helpful hosts on the planet - they aim to please! The property is extremely clean and comfortable, and the setting is gorgeous.

This vacation was a treasure of a find. If you are looking for fancy, night life, shopping etc. this is not the place for you. Only minutes from the airport, walking/biking distance from town, and steps from the ocean - you have it all in this little condo. There is always an empty beach chair, no crowds, and with the BBQs by the pool, the kitchenette in the room and shopping and farmers market out front you have everything you need to exist in your own little world. John was very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the room is pretty dusty and the bed and pillows really - really need to be replaced. You don't really notice this though because you will spend most of your time on the Lanai and when you go to bed, you open the door and the sound of the waves put you to sleep before you know it.

We are staying at the Aston Islander on the beach now and having a wonderful time. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff is very helpful. We have a room on the third floor with ocean front, If I had a baseball I could literally throw it into the ocean from my room. Although the air conditioning system is working very well, we are leaving the sliding door open to sleep with the sound of the surf. The view from our room is spectacular and just like the photos that Aston showed on their web site. There is shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Although the hotel is not new, it is well maintained and well worth the advertised price. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is absolutely perfect for a beach vacation. The view is unbelievable! A "busy" day on the beach in front of the unit was 4 people, but generally only 1-2 and often we had the beach to ourselves. The third floor location made it private as well as quiet (except for the peaceful sound of the waves). If you want to be social, the pool/hot tub/bar area was always active and friendly. John (owner) was super in terms of communication and suggestions. I would have given 5 stars across the board except the bed isn't as comfortable as ours back home. But that is really the only shortfall we can think of for this rental. We cannot wait to go back.

We were looking for a quiet more intimate setting on the beach in Kauai rather than a big hotel, resort or multi floor apt. This is exactly what we found through John & Jill Arria at the Aston Islander On The Beach in Kapaa. The property was located literally steps away from the beach overlooking a most wonderful view and we both were very pleased for the entire stay that we were so fortunate to have!

The photos are not accurate, the actual property and views are MUCH BETTER than what you can see on the website as there is much beauty there.

Since Kapaa is in between Hanalei to the north, Lihue & Poipu Beach to the south it is easy to plan your trips to all parts of the island while enjoying the activities, restaurants and art in the town of Kapaa which is charming in itself.

We hope to be back as soon as possible and would highly recommend this for only the property - but the owners as well who are delightful wonderful people and very easy to work with.
