Eleven condo buildings scattered around 13 acres of pretty grounds fronting a narrow beach. Some garden view units overlook pretty koi ponds. Your resort fee gives you access to weekly mai tai parties and fitness classes like yoga, tai chi, swimmersize, etc., as well as a weekly putting tournament on their putting greens. There’s also shuffleboard here.

Studios here have a good layout and feel larger than their 454 sq. ft. Some 2/2s have a loft as well. Rooms vary considerably. Bathrooms have small tubs at the bottom of showers. The front desk is not associated with Aston and may or may not be able to help you with problems, but the staff is very nice.

The rack rate seems much higher than what it’s worth; hope you got a better deal. Studios (454 sq. ft.) are $435–$519, 1/1s (620 sq. ft.) are $479–$575, 2/1s or 2/2s (861 sq. ft.) are $779–$905, 3/2s (1,217 sq. ft.) are $929–$1,005. Chase ‘n Rainbows (second agent listed above) also has units here for much less money, but you may not have access to some of the amenities, and you still pay the $17-a-day facility fee. Room amenities from them may also vary.

What Readers Have to Say

“I’m sure you get emails like this all the time, but I love your guidebook. When my wife and I were in our local Barnes & Noble looking through guidebooks for our trip to Kauai, yours stood out because of your writing style and humor. Your description of it being more like advice from a friend than a dry guidebook was dead on. Your use of aerial photography and arrows made it so much easier to understand where each hotel was located as well. I’m truly surprised that no one else has done that.”
