From the 3rd floor location, which overlooked the swimming pool and hot tub, we had a great view of the beach and ocean. The private balcony was a terrific spot to enjoy a meal or just kickback, feel the ocean breeze, and listen to the waves. The condo was a short walk (200 yards) to the beach for beautiful sunrises and sun bathing. Also, there were numerous coffee, dining, and clothing shops nearby. Esther was extremely hospitable. She contacted us shortly upon arrival and welcomed us to her condo She made us feel right at home. We highly recommend her condo and plan to return in the near future. Aloha.
In one sentence, Esther's place is great and I highly reccomend it. Islander on the beach is centrally located, about an hour to both the Na Pali and the Waimea Canyon and it is beautifully maintained. There is a nice sandy beach and a marketplace nearby.
Esther's condo is clean and spacious, with everything you may need on the island, as well as great view of the Pacific Ocean. It's more than we would ever need while staying in Kauai.
While on the island, make sure to explore Koke'e State Park and do at least the two miles of the Kalalau trail- it's the best hiking trail on the planet in our opinion. Also, eat at Himura Saimin, that place is awesome. Oh, and book with Ester, you won't regret it!
The condo is perfectly located inside the Islander on the Beach resort in Kapaa. The room is nice and clean, everything is comfortable, the lanai (balcony) provides an amazing ocean view.
Esther - the owner - prepared everything for our troubleless and enjoyable stay.
Another plus: the territory of the resort is rooster-free, so nothing will disturb your night sleep with the open lanai door and/or window!
Thank you, Esther, for the opportunity to enjoy our vacation in your unit.
The stay was perfect, Esther had all the useful information very well structured and explained in her email, so it was very easy to stay. We just had to focus on enjoying. The location is great, there are good restaurants nearby and a shoping area, this is within reasonable distance of all activities. It is a good choice.
