My husband and I have been staying an Aston islander condo 137 every year for the past few years. We just love the location!! We sit on the patio and watch the ocean! In the morning we walk down to the beach and take in the most breathtaking sunrise. Great food within walking distance. The room is decorated well and it is always clean! We love how the owner provides beach chairs, boogie boards, ice chest and beach towels. It truly is our home away from home.

The room was very nice and had a better view than expected. You could see the ocean a little bit behind the pool. It was not too close to the pool to hear noise, however and not too far to make it difficult to walk to the pool It was nice to not have to climb any stairs. Very clean. Gift bad greeted us on table was very nice and we really needed a beach bag so came in handy. Loved this room & would recommend it to anyone!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Great value condo on a beautiful island.
Left on 05/21/2014 for a stay in May 2014 | A TripAdvisor Member
This condo is in a very handy location, close to the ammenities of Kapa'a and next door to the Coconut market place. Being on the ground floor it has a lovely lanai which overlooks the pool and only about a hundred metres to the beach (which you can see from the lanai). It is a little dated but in good and clean condition with a kitchenette (small) sufficient to make breakfast and sandwiches but would benefit from the addition of a salad bowl as there is a barbecue on site. Parking is provided free of charge which is also a bonus. Rates are extremely reasonable. The beds (two) are comfortable. The provision of free wifi is very much appreciated as are the thoughtful welcome gifts of chocolates etc. The information and support provided by the managing agents was excellent. I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to my friends. Kauai is a beautiful island, perhaps the best of all! :) Read more
Thank you for the positive review. Thank you also for letting us know about the salad bowl. I arrived on island right after you and I was able to replace some of the things that were missing from the condo.

Nice Air conditioning & beds
Left on 05/14/2014 for a stay in May 2014 | A TripAdvisor Member
The room is just a hotel size but good enough for our stay. (2 people)
It may be too small for family and I recommend it for senior couple.
The room is fully equipped with what we need and 2 full size beds are comfortable to sleep.
Free internet access is nice and only we hope if there is a phone in the room. (because local call is toll free)
New Japanese air conditioning is powerful and quiet.
Parking space is limited, you may not find a slot when you arrive in the late evening and
you have to park on the street, then you move your car next morning by 10:00.
The hotel located close to supermarket, drugstore, Starbucks, Lapperts ice cream, etc.

It was a great stay except with nice view to pool and beach. It was very well stuffed with things you don't want to buy extra like salt&pepper;, coffee filter etc. We got a free pack&play; for our little one to sleep in. The only bummer was the construction going on on the other building the 2nd week, which we didn't know it would be. And something to hang and dry your towels or swimsuits would be useful since you are not aloud to hang them over the lanai chairs.
Awesome place to stay!

My Ohana and I are very pleased with the property. The instructions that was emailed to me was very clear and when we walked inside the property everything is in place---clean, beds are very comfortable, and 10 steps away from the pool!
Will definetly stay again on that property when we venture the east side again!
Islander on the Beach - Definitely on the Beach
Left on 12/30/2013 for a stay in December 2013 | gemmdust
This condo was conveniently located and right along the beach, shopping, farmers market and excusion outlets. The accommodations were adequate with a blender but wish there would have been a stove top for cooking. The front door was a little tempermental. The only other challenge was parking and having to pick up a permit for the overflow parking area nightly. Would have been nice to have a permit for each night we were there instead of signing in each evening with the security officer. Read more
Thank you for telling us about the problem with the front door. The top hinge was almost broken, so we had it fixed.

excellent studio condo
Left on 12/01/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | Lee Chambers
We had a great two weeks at Islander in Unit 137. Our three complaints are that the automatic door closer is way too strong(as we have found in other units in the facility) and the door does not fit/close easily. Also, as is true in all the units at the Islander, the sliding glass door and the curtains are at odds with eachother; the door should have opened from the end, not the middle.
Our unit was clean, stocked, and ground floor, with a short walk to the pool and beach. We'll stay there again. Lee chambers, Oregon

We just had two nights to finish off our stay on Kauai, and this fit the bill. Compact but very comfortable for my wife and I and our 13yro grandson. Beach equipment came in handy and was in excellent condition. Would stay again if the opportunity arises.
Everything you need***Great price!!

This is a very nice, clean condo that included everything we needed during the course of our vacation! The kitchenette is stocked with gadgets. Beach towels, chairs and cooler also came in very handy.
The location is great!! It seems to be located about 1/2 way between just about any destination on the island. There is a cute little shopping center just across the street and plenty of restaurants within a short drive or in some cases even walking distance :)
I love love loved my stay here! I will be back :)
Wonderful price for a great location and beautiful resort
Left on 07/22/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Frunk
I booked a condo through aloha resorts and the experience couldn't have been easier. Communications were quick and easy and everything was exactly as described.
The location of this condo is wonderful as it is a 2 second walk to the beach and the pool.
In addition there is a shipping center within a 3-5 minute stroll.
The condo was like a well-stocked hotel room and for the price, could not be beat. It was clean and filled with all the beach accessories you would need.
Overall this was a wonderful experience.

This condo was wonderful. Free parking and wifi. It's on the bottom level of the three story condo which I thought I would not like but It was awesome to just open up the great big sliding glass door to walk to the pool which was steps away and also the hot tub and the bar! Also great when we had a handful of clothes to wash at the laundry room. It had everything we needed beach towels plenty of bath towels. We used the small fridge provide and got water bottles and other drinks and everyday filled the small cooler (also provided) with ice (there is an ice bin just steps away the front door) and had cold drinks for the car/beach. Saved us some money. Bought Kauia coffee and enjoyed that every morning on the patio. Our only bummer was that we noticed you can hear clanking of cabinet doors and if people are being a bit noisy you can hear it. When this happened we played our music softly and just tuned it out :-) we had to move to a resort for two days after because we didn't have the condo for 7 full days. Luxurious resort, but we had to pay for parking $14 a day and they wanted $13 for wifi !! Craziness. Also bonus was that grocery store was very close! Safeway is down the road. If you want a sweet retreat come here..if your lookin to party all night long don't. My husband and I loved the stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this unit for 8 days in December 2012 and to be honest we were a little worried as to what we would be staying in, because if you've compared prices to other hotels this unit was a steal. I was dreading being stuck in roach motel, but upon arrival I was very pleased with our choice of stay. First thing I noticed walking into the unit was how clean it looked and smelled. Before we found the unit though, we had some difficulty locating the unit, everyone we asked seemed to point us in the wrong direction, so a map of the grounds before hand may have been useful. However, the rental company was quick to help and answer any questions we had.
The unit had many useful amenities that you would not have found staying at a regular hotel. Things such as real beach towels, like pretty colorful big ones. This was very fortunate for us as we decided to not pack, so this saved us money. There was nice welcome package with a tourist video, coffee, candies, and all sorts of things. Other things like BBQ utensils, ice chest, beach chairs, sand toys, and more also came in great use. The room had a decently sized bathroom and although we didn't use it much, the a/C unit was nice at time. They didn't want clothing hung off the furniture, a drying rack of some kind would have been useful.
The pool and beach was just a short walk from the Lanai. We cooked food on the hotels brand new Bbq's and enjoyed the company of fellow travelers and locals at the tiki hut by the pool most nights.
The only con I can think of that the beach isn't the nicest, but Kapaa is a great place to stay as it a good starting point to head North or South for the day which is what we did. We enjoyed the farmers market on Thursdays in coconut marketplace and all the stores there as well. I would definitely stay again!
I gave them 5 stars based on what I was told I was purchasing and what I actually got for my money.

we are so happy that you Could accomodate us on a short notice. Your unit is very clean and well updated. All appliances and cooking accessories were great .The Islander on the beach is well located for all the last minute shopping or the travelling to various part of the island. A real nice unit for small family which I will recommend to my friends. Thanks again and hope to stay with you guys again.

This well-maintained condo perfectly located within the complex, is situated close to the pool and beach. Afternoon happy hour at the pool allows you to meet others staying at the location. Lovely people from around the world relaxing, and barbecuing fish on the grills that are available for all visitors to use. The condo has been well taken care of and provides you with everything you need for your visit. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby prevent the need for a car.

These condos managed by aloha Condos were a steal! Before we arrived, we were questioning how nice the place would be because of the extremely low price, but when we arrived, all concerns vanished. The place was great! 30 feet from the bar and pool and probably 100 feet from a beautiful ocean front!
Convenient location, comfortable unit

We decided to stay in Kapa'a to be closer to both the north and south ends of the island. The room was everything we expected, comfortable beds, clean, easy access from the parking lot and to the beach. Quiet property, we had no issues with noise. The beach toys were a bonus!

In summary: This condo is small. But at the price ($89/nt+tax) it was perfect. If you want more, you pay more. This was the least expensive option I could find and it met all my needs perfectly. Couldn't ask for a better value.
The good: The owners make the most out of this small space. For example, the kitchenette is equipped with a mini-fridge, sink, and microwave but also a coffee pot (8-cup) and toaster oven. It also has dishes and utensils and 3 cutting boards (incl. 1 that is large enough to cover the sink, creating a little more work space). By being a little creative (heating water in the coffee pot, broiling steaks in the toaster oven), I found that this tiny kitchen had everything I needed to eat-in and minimize my food costs. There are also grills by the pool if you prefer that option.
Some other nice touches: the beach towels and chairs are fantastic; the chairs at the little table are quite comfortable; I fell in love with the comforter; and they have an iPod docking station with alarm clock that I really enjoyed. They also provided a really good island guide book (on loan) and a journal for sharing experiences with owners/future guests. I took that guide book with me everywhere, it was so helpful.
The bad (nitpicky things only): There are no carpets, all the floors are tiled. Easy to keep clean, but not pleasant to walk on 1st thing in the morning. I suggest you pack slippers or house shoes. The heavy privacy curtain opens/closes easily, but the thinner curtain gets stuck on the tracks - guess that one doesn't get opened as often. The air conditioner looks rusty, but works fine. The bathroom fan sounds like it needs some attention, and it's annoying that it comes on every time I turn the light on, but it works as it should.
