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.
Relaxed oceanfront setting
Walking distance to Coconut Marketplace
Free in-room Internet access
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.
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.
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.
There are no on-site restaurant but grills on property offer family cookouts. Guests can walk to restaurants at Coconut Marketplace.

Had a great stay at the Aston Islander on the beach. Oceanfront room was large, very clean, and had all the basic requirements (refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, sink). Couldn't really cook a meal, but nice for heating leftovers, preparing
the morning coffee, evening drinks, etc. Good location in the middle of the main sights. Beach is small and a bit rocky, but usable if you are careful.
This was the second time we stayed at the Aston Islander on the Beach and it won't be the last time. We love this hotel, they really do make you feel like ohana and I honestly wouldn't stay anywhere else. The bar is great (and there are some
awesome characters there too) and they just continue the feeling of enjoying the island. Perfect in every way!
The hotel is decent for the price and is conveniently located. Nothing super fancy there but it's quite enough to stay overnight and keep exploring the island. Cleanliness was generally ok, but I did have to kill a roach in the bath.
The hotel is a good value and centrally located for sightseeing. Beach is a bit rocky in places, but good for calm days, and for sunning. Room was very clean and comfortable, and quiet. The studio we stayed in had a refrigerator, microwave and
coffee maker. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
