We got into Kauai the night before our scheduled week elsewhere and the Aston was a perfect overnight stop. Really good value, beautiful and convenient to Coconut Market Place and Kapaa. Just worked out perfectly. Well maintained and friendly.

My husband and I stayed here in a private owner condo. That means I dealt straight with the owner and never had to check in at the Lobby. We arrived after the sun set, but we were able to find the Molokai building easy enough. The room was as described. I think it said hot plate though...which it did not... More

My friend and I recently stayed in Ni'ihau #354. The view from this 3rd floor corner walk-up was more that I hoped for! Gorgeous sunrises, ocean waves, and a myriad of bird life were plentiful in view (and often hung out on the lanai)! Being able to leave the sliding door open while we slept was a plus (3rd floor,...

This hotel was amazing! we had the ground floor Ocean Front room, and literally could walk out of our Lanai and be on the beach! The staff was friendly with lots of perks to the hotel e.g Free rentals, pool bar, free great lemonades, a gift certificate! I highly recommend this place. My husband and I loved it!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Kauai, staying 16 nights at the Aston Islander.
