Seriously the best vacation we have been on! It was our first trip to Hawaii and Khaled and Heather’s condo exceeded our expectations. The view was unbeatable, the condo so clean and organized and in an amazing location in Kapaa! We WILL be back!!!

What a wonderful condo! It was a great way to start off our time in Hawaii. The condo was clean and beautiful. The view could not be beat. I appreciated all the extras in the condo like bowls, grilling tools, beach chairs, binoculars, etc. I would not change a thing.

Khaled is a very considerate host. Even though we did not meet, the communication was excellent and very timely. The studio was very nice, well equipped and had a beautiful view. I felt welcome the moment I stepped inside. I am looking forward to coming back soon.

This was our first time using Airbnb and it couldn’t have went better. The place was clean, had everything we could have needed and was in Kauai!

Great condo to stay in east side Kauai. Close to the stores and food. View is great. We got some cool sunrises.

The perfect place to start our 10 day holiday on Kauii! My partner and I loved the condo on the beach. Great location. Comfortable, convenient, affordable. Just awesome!

We had a great time. Everything was fine and very clean. We had a great welcome, thank you Khaled! You have a wonderful view on the ocean. Thank you for the great time at your condo!

We really enjoyed our time in Kauai and this condo was a wonderful way to take it all in! Khaled was incredibly welcoming, responsive and attentive. The welcome guide is very thorough and helpful. The views from this condo are amazing! The location was also ideal because it was centrally located and had plenty of shops. Lounging by the pool was fun and the beach was steps away. I would highly recommend staying here if you want a cozy space to relax in after a fun day of adventure. We woke up at sunrise every morning because the view was simply too great to miss.

Khaled was a great host and always available for questions, and help… Always greatly appreciated. The Condo was even better than described… You simply have to experience it first hand to see why… the location, you just can’t beat it. Waking up to that view every morning is a luxury… Also everything you need is in walking distance, which is handy after a long flight… I will definitely stay again without hesitation, if Khaled would have me again of course!

We had a great experience at Khaled’s condo! It was clean, spacious, and the views were absolutely incredible. We loved hanging out on the lanai and relaxing by the pool. Wish we could’ve stayed longer. On a future trip, we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Our host’s made us feel very welcome. There additional information packet emailed to us before hand was extremely helpful. The condo was exactly liked it was pictured on Airbnb, and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed Kauai. It is truly a lush and beautiful island.

Thank you very much for letting us use your home away from home. We have to say that even at a distance, you both know how to make someone feel at home and avoid the anxiety we as guest can sometimes feel trying to find the place, locate different items, etc. From the moment we confirmed the reservation of the condo, you have been nothing but awesome. You sent guides, useful information, YouTube videos, you name it. Thanks to you, we were very well prepared and enjoyed our honeymoon in Kaua’i.

Just perfect! Great location on the island for visiting both the north and south shores. The condo was amazing!!! Just as pictured and described except better! The hosts thought of just about anything you might need or use to make your stay more comfortable. They respond quickly and kindly to every issue. The process of booking was great. They were the best hosts you could ever have and went above and beyond. We will definitely stay here again 🙂

We loved staying here! Great location, beautiful view, clean and well-equipped with everything you need. The owners are super organized and provided helpful information and tips for enjoying the island. We highly recommend!

Absolutely loved the condo. It was exactly as described. Looking out into the ocean is so relaxing and sitting on the lanai. The bed is comfortable and the room is nicely appointed. I would definitely recommend this condo to anybody that wants to have relaxing Hawaiian experience.

We had a great time staying in Khaled’s condo in Kapaa. Although we did not meet Khaled in person, his communication by email and text as great and we had all the information we needed well ahead of our stay. Getting the parking pass and accessing the condo was a breeze! The condo itself is the perfect place to stay in Kauai. The location is well situated for day trips to both the north and south shores. There are lots of local shops and restaurants nearby (both walking and driving distance). The view from the patio is fantastic. The beach is not as swimmable as others elsewhere on the island, but it was still a very nice place to relax, sunbathe, and take a quick dip (we got most of our swimming and snorkeling in during day trips to other beaches). The condo also has a nice pool area with a bar, although we didn’t use either. The condo was well-stocked with needed equipment, including a small fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and a blender. There is also a free ice machine right outside. The owners have a nice stock of beach supplies available for use, including two sets of beach towels, chairs, and a cooler. There are also some hiking poles and a nice pair of binoculars, which we enjoyed using to spot turtles in the ocean and look at boats out on the ocean. We loved staying here and would recommend it!

What a wonderful condo! For our honeymoon we spent a couple nights on each part of the island, but next time we easily could have stayed here longer! Easy parking and right on the water! The fish market by the house is delicious and it is central to snorkeling and shops! Also, they have one of the best informative binders of any AirBnB I have stayed at, tons of great recommendations!! Thank you!

We had an incredible time at Khaled’s place. It was magical to fall asleep and wake to the sound of the ocean right outside the sliding door. Parking was easy and the best spot on the island for Ono wraps is in their complex. I had a package mailed and Khaled was wonderful about coordinating. Thank you for the magical time!


KristineKristine stayed in 2015 verify it here

These owners are the best! Very kind, and their information was helpful beyond description. I cannot say one negative word about the property, comfort, location or the owners. The central location is so convenient. We had a marvelous time and will definitely book again.

We had a lovely time in Kauai in Khaled´s condo. It was very clean and in a perfect condition. The view from the balcony to the ocean was wonderful. The condo is equipped with everything you need also beachgear is provided. The airconditioning runs without any noise, which makes your sleep recreativ. You find all information about the island and the surroundings like restaurants, beaches, places to visit in a foulder and travelguide books in the condo. Even binoculars are there. The resort is providing a nice pool, cocktailbar (we recommend the “lava flow” cocktail) and b-b-q area which invites for a drink or two. Finding a place to park the car was no problem. Also the personnel in the resort was very freindly. We had no face-to-face contact to Khaled, but e-mail correspondence was excellent. We felt very comfortable and recomment this condo without any hesitation.

Khaled and Jennifer’s condo was an excellent place to call home for our week on Kauai! The location couldn’t have been better to access all points on the island. The amenities in the condo were perfect along with the rest of the Islander Resort. Looking forward to returning in the future and wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else but at this condo!!!

Das Appartment war toll, genau wie beschrieben! Direkt am Meer, gepflegte Anlage, Pool und Hot Tub, schöner Strand, wir sahen sogar Wale und Schildkröten! Khaled hat uns mit einer Menge Informationen versorgt und war immer ansprechbar, auch für unsere ausgefallenen Anfrage. Als Empfang lag sogar Schokolade bereit! Ein sehr netter Kontakt, schade, dass wir ihn nicht persönlich kennen lernen konnten.

Khaled’s apartment met all of our expectations and then some. The view that greets you from the balcony really is breathtaking, and we spent most of our time on that balcony whenever in the apartment. There’s also a great pool & BBQ area just outside the door, along with a highly social pool bar. The beach is also really nice (although not for kids due to waves and currents), with an excellent beach walk well suited for early morning (i.e. jetlagged) sunrise strolls. Parking was convenient and the apartment was very clean and well equipped regarding kitchen ware as well as beach accessories, towels etc. There’s even a pair of binoculars for whalespotting from the balcony. Khaled emailed a nicely crafted welcome package with lockbox instructions and great personal recommendations for restaurants and activities all across the island, along with contact information for various situations. The staff in the reception was also very helpful and friendly, and can help out with recommendations on where to go and what to do. In all an awesome experience and we highly recommend Khaled’s place to others visiting Kauai!

The Condo on the Beach, with full ocean views was home as soon as we arrived. We were tired after a long day of flying and were happy it didn’t take long from the airport to arrive & start to settle in. The room was so immaculate and comfortable. We enjoyed the Chocolate Macadamia nuts that Khaled & Heather had left for us & the starter Vanilla Macadamia coffee, and cream and sugar. The kitchen has a small fridge, no freezer, and we were surprised how much we were able to fit in it. We did some shopping and enjoyed the BBQ area in the complex and the perfect romantic dining spot was right on our lanai. Private, relaxing and comfortable. There were pots and pans, cutlery, wine glasses, a toaster oven, microwave, hot plate and coffee maker provided. The hosts provide so many helpful items, like the cooler, hiking poles, etc. too many to mention. We especially loved the Binoculars and spent hours sitting on the lanai watching for the Humpback whales, saw lots and lots of them breeching, which was a huge excitement for us. Got some memorable video of this! We saw a Monk Seal one day and a Turtle another day on the beach. The Hawaiian birds songs greeted us each day as well. The mornings always began with a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise, from the lanai and getting some beautiful sunrise pics. We spent time down by the pool and lounged by the ocean, you can’t get enough of the sound of the waves. The hot tub is always a meeting place of others visiting the complex and great stories come out of these gatherings. They have a bar area and on the Sat. night we were there they had live music too. We turned on the tv only one night just to check the forecast for an upcoming tour. They have a dvd player but we never used it. The bed is very comfortable and lots of pillows. The safe inside the large closet was a nice feature and we put our passports in there for safe keeping but this complex is very, very safe. Lots of drawers to put everything away, even under the bed. Khaled is only a e-mail or text away if you have any questions & we had a few and couldn’t believe how quickly he responded. Heather and Khaled desire to make your stay at their condo a relaxing and memorable vacation. You could not get better hosts. We would not hesitate to return. It would be like coming home. If you want to relax and sit on a private lanai and get away from it all, this is the condo to pick. We’ve been gone for a few days now and I wish we were back there right now. Thank you Heather and Khaled for making us feel so welcome and allowing us to enjoy your condo for 10 days. Enjoy we Did!!

Arriving at the condo took my breath away. The photos very accurately show you all that you can expect. But actually getting here and drinking it all in – smelling the tropical air, hearing the crashing waves from steps away, and putting your feet upon the cool travertine tiles – it’s immediately apparent that you’ve landed in paradise. There was even a box of chocolate macadamia nuts welcoming my arrival! The condo is immaculate and features all the comforts of a luxurious resort hotel without the bother (and the resort fees)! Aromatic green tea toiletries were provided in the bathroom, and the linens were plentiful and high quality. The wicker lanai furniture has comfortable floral cushions for watching morning sunrises over a cup of fresh brewed coffee or spending peaceful afternoons with a book. The vanilla macadamia nut coffee that was provided was delicious (and I regularly augmented it with some macadamia nut ice cream I picked up in Kapa’a). The iHome radio at bedside had a docking station for my iPhone 5, which allowed me to stream my Hawaiian tunes whenever I was lounging. The bed was very comfortable and provided a stunning ocean view without having to get up! There is ample closet and drawer space so all the kitchen implements and your luggage can be stored out of sight – wonderfully reducing visual clutter in such a relaxing space. The owners Khaled and Heather have gone to exceptional lengths to provide an exhaustive guide of Kauai recommendations that I’m certain eclipses what regular resort guests must receive. They sent an email version two months prior to my arrival to whet my appetite, and a laminated version is on the condo coffee table for easy consultation. They also provide several guidebooks about Kauai hiking, snorkeling, attractions, and restaurants – so don’t waste space packing your own! The Wi-Fi was quick and the cable TV has 60 channels to choose from. Amazingly, the owners also share their hiking and beach equipment, so you can be assured you’ll be prepared for any spontaneous adventure you can think of on Kauai! The location is prime – set among the gorgeous palms of the Aston Islander on the Beach – and just a couple minutes drive from all the restaurants and shopping in attractive Kapa’a. The airport is less than 20 minutes away, and you’re centrally located to explore both the south and the north sides of the island. The hottub and pool just downstairs were always a relaxing place to meet fellow travelers. My only hope is that I’ll still be able to get a reservation here the next time I escape to Kauai for a break from the winter! I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. Many, many thanks to Khaled and Heather for sharing their unmatched home-away-from-home!
