Utterly relaxing condo haven on the east shore of Kauai
Vacationers looking for nice, affordable beachfront digs in one of the top locations on Kauai will find much to love at Aston Islander on the Beach. Low-key and peaceful, the resort sits on six landscaped acres along a strand of golden sand. Strolling the beach and lounging poolside are pleasant ways to while away vacation days, and sunrise doesn't get much better. Grills are available for guests and the hotel rooms and one-bedroom suites offer home-away-from-home conveniences. The adjacent Coconut Marketplace has dozens of shops and restaurants.
Highlights
  • Relaxed oceanfront setting
  • Walking distance to Coconut Marketplace
  • Free in-room Internet access
  • Complimentary parking
Location
Kauai's Coconut Coast is the most central and convenient for vacationers who want to explore all that the Garden Isle has to offer -- which is to say, a lot. Aston Islander on the Beach is located almost mid-way between Waimea Canyon to the west and the riveting cliffs and dramatic topography of the Na Pali coast to the north. Poipu Beach is about 15 miles southwest. The eastern shore has its own compelling sights, too. Peaceful Wailua River, Wailua Falls, and Kauai Backcountry Adventure's Lihue tubing are just a short drive away.
Rooms
Teak furnishings, private lanais, air conditioning and free Internet access give accommodations an inviting island ambiance with contemporary appeal. Aston Islander on the Beach offers 198 units -- hotel rooms to one-bedroom suites -- in the low-rise, walk-up buildings set around the pleasant property.
Features
The beach at Aston Islander on the Beach is perfect for strolling and sunning and the pool is a peaceful respite from the frenetic world. But sports, sights and restaurants are nearby, allowing guests to choose how to spend their time. Lydgate Beach Park, for example, draws swimmers and snorkelers of all ages to its protected, sandy lagoon, and nearby Wailua Golf Course was named by Golf Digest as one Hawaii's 15 best courses.
Dining
There are no on-site restaurant but grills on property offer family cookouts. Guests can walk to restaurants at Coconut Marketplace.

stayed at this hotel many times

Probably 6-7 yrs and enjoy the location, right on the ocean with beautiful kept grounds. rooms are okay, clean and neat with Microwave, small fridge and sink. You have a couch, TV and small table. Patio/Lanai has a table and chairs. Even partial view of ocean is fine as you only have to walk 50 yards at most to the ocean. Pool is small but clean and convenient. nearby restaurant TREES is fabulous with entertainment every night. Great place within one half mile of town Kapaa with Safeway, etc. Value is great.

As mentioned TREES is short walk with cocktails and great food at reasonable prices. Entertainment every night 5 to 8 or so and then they change bands from 8:30 to 10ish. Great spot with a young friendly married couple owners who work there!

Great place!

We got derailed from our camping plans due to rain & lucked out getting a room here. The staff is wonderful and the accommodations are perfect for our needs! Definitely a great place at a really reasonable price! We only booked for two nights but because of the rain, we asked if we could extend our stay & not only were we able to...but they kept us in the same room so we didn't have to pack up! Awesome staff! I would not hesitate to come back!

Nice enough place, but expensive.

I enjoyed staying here, but was annoyed with the extra daily amenity cost (about $20 a day). Isnt that why I'm paying for a hotel room in the first place? For amenities? This extra cost was not optional. So why not put it in the price of the room? I enjoyed staying here, but was greatly disappointed that after paying for 8 days, and I wanted to check out 2 hours late, (and the hotel was CLEARLY not full) they couldn't allow it. They offered to allow me to stay two more hours for $125. Really? I was less than impressed.

Great place to stay

Nice place for someone on a budget. Since we don't spend that much time in our room this was perfect. Don't expect too many amenities and the parking can be a little tough.

Go Next door

we were kicked out of the rooms we had because the owner was coming into town. (its the way they moved us out that upset us) we were not told anything until we were locked out of the rooms at 11:00 PM. we were told to move and had to be out NOW, no time to pack and move rooms. I asked to speak to a manager and she dogged me all week long as to avoid my conversation. NEVER going back to this place. Next door is a much nice place.

Stayed several times 4-5 yrs

We've stayed here 5-6 years in Feb and will return in Feb 2014. Hoorah for Kauai and Aston Islander on the Beach. We've always had a partial ocean view except last year when the manager upgraded us to Ocean View. Hoorah, again. The town of Kapaa is small but has most everything one needs within a mile or so of the hotel. TREES, a restaurant and lounge with nightly entertainment is within about 50 yards of the hotel front. hoorah for Trees - no kidding we've been most pleased with our stays here. Only problem is occasionally the parking lot is full, requiring a slip from Security to park next door. HONESTLY, We're anxious for Feb 2014 to arrive. We stayed at their Sister hotel at the other end of Coconut market Place and it was nice, but two large of buildings.- Islander on the Beach is quaint and the grounds are impeccable. The beach is stoney, but right there next to the property. Love it.

TREES, is owned and operated by a young couple who have entertainment for us elderly from 5:15 to 8:30, then it changes for a younger crowd, about the time we're ready to go to our room. Great food. No kidding, the best Crème Brulee we've ever had.

Very nice spot in Kau'i

We needed a place to stay for one night before heading off to our timeshare, and this was practically perfect--close to the airport, reasonable price, excellent staff.
