Location was great (Kapa’a/Wailua).
The place was clean; had a cooler and beach towels which was a nice surprise. Had a lovely welcome gift, too. 500 steps from the beach. Beautiful sunrise every morning.

Steps from the beach and comfortable, we had a great time and really appreciated all the options in this area.
MAUREEN M. Sep 2022
Great stay, steps from the beach, very convenient to stores, food and am coffee fresh roasted! We will come here again.
MARTY S. Sep 2022
Everything we needed at a great central location. Appreciated the beach gear. Steps away the beach to watch sunrise and some great restaurants for dinner. Of course there are newer and fancier properties but this has everything we need and the unit was clean and appears to be well managed.

Our stay at the Islander was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable and the owners provided many extras such as a treats, beach towels, cooler, beach chairs, toaster and hair dryer. The walk to the beach was short and we watched the sunrise from there several mornings. We were next to Lava Lava Beach house which was super convenient for a meal or drink. We would stay here again.

Well maintained community. It is conveniently located right next to coconut marketplace, has pool access and right next to the beach. Towel replenishment 3x a week which is convenient for pool and beach use. Be aware it only has one electric socket for laptop or cell phone charging. Place is a bit outdated but decent. Four stars for two things: front door is facing lava lava beach club and property next door. Didn’t see this disclosed in the listing. There is Sysco food delivery almost everyday before 7 and not convenient for any light sleepers. Front door also have a very small opening which makes it easy for bugs or cockroach to get in (one made it inside the room). Wood dresser, under bed storage and closet needs some updating. It has old wood smell that sticks to clothes.
Manager response:
Hi, Ian! We're delighted you chose to stay with us and appreciate your feedback. We have asked housekeeping to address the smell in the dresser, and maintenance will close the gap around the door. Thank you!

Everything was clean and nice. Centrally located to both sides of island. More reasonably priced than North Shore. It was convenient that the service had 2 chair, cooler and beach towels in the unit and laundry exchange. It also had a frig, microwave, coffee pot and toaster and pool side grills. We limited ourselves eating out once a day if u go early u can take advantage of happy hour lunch menus and drink specials. Waimea Canyon drive and NaPali Coast boat tour is a must!

Place very clean, right next to coconut market place (plaza with restaurants and a grocery store.) Small pool(pool bar was cool) but right next to the beach. We didn't stay that much in the hotel we didn't really explore much and 10mins away from the Lihue airport.
FRANK W. May 2022
Great location next to a beach and a plaza where you can get groceries and coffee. Site management does not provide extra toiletries which was a surprise. You'll have to contact the owners directly. Other than that the place is a nice small temporary home base.
Manager response:
We're glad you stayed with us, Frank. We do only provide a starter kit of consumable supplies as mentioned in the pre-arrival information sen to our guests. We apologize if there was any confusion regarding this matter. Hopefully we get to host you again!

Beautiful accommodation, beautiful facility and grounds, nice businesses close to property. Almost no need to leave the property.
RAUL M. Mar 2022
Truthfully, I would of given this place five stars, but there is NO daily cleaning of the room and they even want you to wash the dishes and put them away. I’m on vacation!
Steven R. Aug 2021
Great location - basic room, basic pool, hot tub, and pool bar. If you're not planning to be in the room a lot and on a budget, this is a great option. The room was clean, had a nice welcome package, and really had everything that we wanted or needed other than extra space. It more along the lines of a hotel room with a small kitchen area that includes a sink, mini frig, microwave, coffee pot, etc.
The location is really perfect. We never felt unsafe walking to and from, the parking was easy, and the grounds were very well taken care maintained. It's super easy to access the island from this location. There are also several restaurants within a 5 minute walk. We loved it and would definitely stay again.
Linda G. Aug 2021
Place was clean, right next to the beach and all the markets you need. Conveniently located in the middle of the island to visit the south and north end, fairly same distance. I would book again in a heart beat!! (AC worked great!)
