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.

Excellent location

Quiet place, good location to start traveling around the island, some problems to reach it when we arrived because it isn't on the main road.

Great to be on the water, really run down lobby and beach chairs were unacceptable,

The proximity to the beach was absolutely wonderful, the room was immaculately clean and the lanai was lovely. The lobby was very run down and the state of the loungers were so poor it was rather unacceptable (totally falling apart). I had a positive experience but I had to reach for the positives and really look at the bright side , the state of the hotel was not accurately displayed on the website.

Fell in love with the island of Kauai

We were in a room with a beautiful view of the ocean. The room was clean and came with a kitchenette which helped with the cost of eating every meal out. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It was centrally located and the grounds were immaculate. Mahalo

Great Getaway Location

Older, beautifully landscaped, central location near Coconut Market Place, makes shopping and sightseeing convenient. Clean, comfortable room w/mini fridge, coffee/tea & microwave. Laundry facilities on site. Economic amenities fee includes daily newspaper and DVD rental card. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't beat the value!

Looking for a "local dining experience"? Try TC's Island Grill. Gotta try the humongous "shave ice" at the Fish Shack, too!!!

Firs Kauia trip

Fortunately, I was lodged on the 3rd floor (top floor) of corner unit partially facing the inside garden and ocean... Unexpected pleasant surprise; wonderful view from the balcony. The grounds/landscaping were very well maintained. The downfall, no elevator - but in turn of the view/location, no big deal. The room was clean, and the hotel staff maintained it daily -- it looked great. The only minor problem was the plumbing; very loud noise coming from the water running, e..g, when neighbors turned on the water for showers, the pressure coming through the pipes made a very loud noise (sounding like a low grade drill).

Great getaway

We booked 5 days before we took off and had a great trip. The hotel was great! This is a condo style place that had very economical room that were beautiful, clean, and close to the water. We barbecued almost every night with the folks tha we met there and had a blast. The staff was generally nice bit had a little attitude when we asked if they would unclog our toilet. From our parial ocean view room we heard the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. It put us asleep every night. The only thing that would keep me from coming back is that the ocean in front is too rough for swimming and that there are rocks everywhere. I like to swim in the mornings and snorkel. Kapaa is a great town. Go too Pono market for good polo and mermaids for great seared ahi wraps. Overall an amazing trip! Aloha

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.
