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.

If you are a frequent shopper of Safeway(or their store affiliates)-bring your store card,any coupons,and perhaps get a gift card before you get to the island-Island prices are more expensive,but getting necessities there for breakfast,lunch,etc,can help you shave costs for what may already be a pricey visit to paradise

Great location. Clean, simple and not fancy but nice jumping off point to enjoy the island. Close to many places to eat and less than 2 mi from a really nice beach where you can swim.

Central location, Whales, Bring your own computer

The Aston Islander is on the beach, but protected from highway traffic and noise by the Coconut Market. Easy to drive North to beaches and Hannalai. Only 8 easy miles North of airport. Good roads to visit all southern areas for easy day trips. Rented a bike by the week to enjoy coastal bike trail that starts 1.5 miles north - only about six blocks of traffic. Also biked/walked south through Lydgate state park and historical markers explaining sacred areas of Wailua river. Bring your own computer. Lobby computers are tied to frustrating island system. Wifi available in lobby and rooms. Basic groceries (and Ice Cream) were available at the Coconut Market with several small resturants and a farmers market for the freshest beautiful island fruits and vegetables. Our room was basic with a small refrigerator and plentiful dishes and silverware. Several gas grills were available by pool and bar area. Room worked well for two people outside in the great weather most of time. Ate all meals on small lanai. Toured several small resorts during two week visit, and plan to return to Aston Islander. Comfortable, quiet, well landscaped. Used laundry, pool, beach. Beach usually has high surf and undertow, but we had 3-4 perfect days for swimming, snorkling and boogie board. Saw jet skis, Stand Up Paddlers, kayakers in near areas. Rentals available near resort. Spotted whales daily all along Coconut Coast.

Watch for farmers markets to learn about local fruits and vegetables. The vendors have great stories and recipes. Carry a knife, spoons and napkins in car to enjoy fruit along the highways.

excellant choice for family

The rooms are equipped with a mini pantry, providing microwave oven, toast oven, and a big fridge, which made it very convenient if you just want to prepare your own breakfast or dinner. Would definitely recommend it! The only down side is that the beach is not really suitable for swimming (not sure if it is because of the winter season though)

Wonderful Vacation

This hotel is in the perfect spot to quickly get to both the north and south shore of the island. It is located right behind the Coconut Market Place which has some nice shops, a farmers market on Tuesday, a free hula show on Wednesday night, and Eggberts (which is a great place for pancakes!) We strongly recommend doing the Napalali Coast tour by Catamaran, Port Allen is only 45 minutes away from this hotel. Thankfully we booked early enough that we avoided the $10 per night amenity fee, but overall we enjoyed our experience at this hotel.

Nice Resort, Parking limited

Very nice resort but experience spoiled by lack of parking in the evening. Ample parking available in neighboring resort but you will need to find security personnel to issue temp parking pass every evening. Recommend resort issue parking pass for overflow parking upon arrival since they are aware that parking is an issue.
