We stayed 6 nights in the unit 239 and loved this 
place. The booking was easy and Brad and 
Wendy were really helpful. The room has 
everything you need for a relaxing stay on this 
beautiful island. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai 
and viewing the sea.

We were in Kauai for our daughter's wedding at Ke'e Beach. (Not 1 drop of rain the whole time). Chose to stay in Kapaa because it was centrally located on the island and we stayed in Unit 252. Being that our stay on Kuai was short(only 4 days)we didn't get to relax and enjoy the property as much as we would have liked. Next time for sure. The Trees restaurant in the parking lot is a "MUST". Music was great too! Parking is at a premium so if you get back to your unit too late you might have to park in the Coconut Market Place which is just an extention of the exisiting parking lot. Also, nice to have shops walking distance from the property.

My husband, daughter and I spent 11 wonderful days at Kreller’s Getaway Unit 160.The room was very clean and had everything in it that we needed.The property is absolutely perfect!Coconut Marketplace is right next door and had several places to shop and eat. Spent every morning watching the sun come up on our own private beach and the island of Kauai is very beautiful and the condo is centrally located to the which makes for easy travel. Brad was very accommodating, answered all my questions, and made our dream vacation such a wonderful experience. Many Many Mahalo's to you Brad and Kreller's Getaways. We are already planning our trip for next spring. :)

We stayed in Unit 329 and it was PERFECT! The 
instructions were clear, we had no trouble finding 
or entering the condo. It was centrally located. They 
had everything that we needed, beach towels, 
kitchenware (that we didnt discover until the last 
day), and beach items left by others (beach mat, 
boogie boards). We loved our view of the beach and 
sitting on the patio hearing the waves crashing on 
the sand/rocks. It was definitely a treat! Thank you 
Brad for a wonderful stay!

We stayed at Islander on the Beach in 
unit #131. It was just as advertised and 
had a great view and was close to beach 
and pool. We love the Poipu Beach area 
so bought some folding chairs for the 
beach and left them in the closet for 
future guests to share. We certainly 
enjoyed our time and relaxed.

We had a beautiful time in December when we stayed in unit #320. The Islander on the Beach's east side location cannot be beat, and Brad was incredibly friendly. The unit was clean with a gorgeous view. We loved eating breakfast (delicious fruit from the farmer's market that is a very short walk away) on the lanai. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Krellers!

We spent a week in unit #323 in February. It was fabulous! The unit was exactly as described on the Kreller's website. The location of 323 is on top floor of the end building facing the ocean - very scenic & very quiet. We went to sleep every night listening to the ocean. The Islander is nicely located in Kapa'a. Good home base for visiting the rest of the island. Brad & Wendy were great to deal with. We even contacted them during our stay when we were looking for activity suggestions & they got right back to us. A bulb was burned out in the bathroom & it was fixed the next morning. Overall, a great unit that we would DEFINITELY recommend.

We had booked to stay with the Krellers in early March and my wife suddenly needed surgery. The care and compassion in which Brad handled the situation was beyond compare. You can book from them assured that you are dealing with real human beings and the facilities are just as lovely. We will definitely be back to Krellers Getaway.

We stayed in unit #324 and although we weren't 
used to a condo (usually rent large houses), the 
view and location absolutely made it worth it. We 
spent most of our time at the beach, pool, bar, 
market and balcony so the room location was ideal 
and I spent 80% of the time barefoot (3ft of snow at 
home so took advantage). Brad at KrellersGetaway 
was great from first inquiry to end. His responses 
were super quick and he was more than 
accommodating for us. This was undeniably the 
best Hawaiian rental experience we've had in the 5 
yrs we've been renting.

Stayed in unit 160. I've been to Kauai a number of 
times, and usually stayed in this area for its 
conveniences and easy access to the less travelled 
parts of the island. Everything was as promised, and 
for me, someone whose daily agenda is more or 
less random while on vacation, and on a bicycle, so 
somewhat dependant on the weather, not feeling 
like I had to be out of the unit for a particular time 
of day for housekeeping was an aded bonus.

What a great vacation. We stayed in unit 
319 and could not have been more 
pleased. We both travel a lot for work 
and pleasure and can honestly say this 
was one of our best trips in a long 
while. Having the ability to cook light 
meals and having your own refrigerator, 
not to mention brew our own coffee was 
fantastic. The unit is in such a great 
location for exploring the island. Being 
ON the beach was great as well. We loved 
the hiking, kayaking, helicopter ride, 
beaches, the people and the overall 
trip. By far our favorite Hawaiian 
island and we will definitely be back. 

Brad was very helpful, responsive, and 
friendly! Mahalo!

I cannot say enough good stuff about our experience with Kreller's Islander Getaway Unit #160 April 2012. My wife and I were on spending our Honeymoon in Kauai and we had no experience or knowledge of the Island. The Condo was perfect just as promised. No surprises. The location is perfect if you want to see the whole island. It was a short drive from any part of the island. All of my research was online. When you booking over the internet with only pictures reviews and their word to rely on, you never really know what you are going to get. Brad and Wendy were excellent in communicating and working with all our needs. They were always quick to reply to my e-mails and answering any questions I had. When we visit again, they will be the first people we call.

Great experience at KrellersGetaway 
Kauai #320. Central location. Clean upon 
arrival. Cable TV, wired internet (1 
connection only--bring a wireless router 
if wireless is important to you), beach 
accessories (cooler, chairs, towels)... 
couldn't ask for anything more! I'd stay 
again when I return to Kauai. Note that 
I was worried when reading other reviews 
about parking--but even if parking runs 
out, you're able to park in an adjacent 
lot after obtaining a pass. It's not a 
hassle, and it's just as close as some 
of the parking spots within the Islander 
lot.

We had a great stay in Unit 319. We had

too. Some great restaurants are within walking

Kauai is beautiful and the Kreller's units are the perfect place to base your island vacation. This is the second time I've stayed in one of the Kreller's units and I've been very impressed with their responsiveness, the unit's cleanliness, and the reasonable rates. Islander On The Beach is convenient to everything and the grounds and amenities are very nice and low key. I love being able to walk to shops, restaurants, equipment rental places, and trip guides. And, of course, walking on the beach is wonderful.

We had a lovely stay in Unit 239. The kitchenette was well-
appointed, with all of the supplies we needed for some lightweight 
cooking. We used the grills by the pool to cook some fish. The unit 
has a great partial ocean view and easy access to the pool. The 
grounds are well-maintained, and there's a handy ice machine 
nearby. The condo complex was conveniently located as a great 
homebase for our various day trips. We had a wonderful stay.

This property was exactly what we wanted. It was steps away from a mostly private beach, a pool (with bar), it was right in Kapaa with lots of restaurants and shopping and right in between the north and south shore. It was a great location because we drove back and forth to the north and south shores quite a bit. The property was clean and parking was easy. Communication with Brad was always painless with extremely quick responses. I would definitely stay here again.

The property is absolutely beautiful! We loved walking the grounds and looking at all the flowers! 
We enjoyed being able to walk to the Coconut Market for shopping and eating! 
The Kreller’s were wonderful to work with! They went above and beyond to answer all my questions about the unit and about the island.
If we ever get to go back to Kauai we will defiantly be staying in one of the Kreller’s unit’s!!

We stayed in Kreller's unit #160 at the Islander by the Beach in Kapaa and LOVED it. We had been at two of the islands big resorts where there were way to many people and found this the perfect place to end our 17 day stay on Kauai. It was very clean and cozy. (loved the hula lamp) You can sit on the patio and look right out at the ocean. Great surf sounds to lull you to sleep. Nice pool and near by shopping & restaurants. We will definately go back. Brad & Wendy were so easy to do business with. Thanks. Jim & Jody

This is definitely the best way to stay 
on Kauai - a balance between not paying 
hotel prices and not having to stay in a 
hostel. You get almost all the 
facilities of Islander on the Beach but 
pay less. The resort is one of the 
nicest around - its right on a beach and 
in fact, if you want to, you can use 
parts of the resort next-door too 
(restaurant etc). You can't really swim 
on this beach as its too dangerous most 
of the time but that didn't matter, the 
views were great and we drove to some of 
Kauai's best beaches. The Krellers were 
very helpful with our numerous pre-
booking questions, which encouraged us 
they could be trusted. We stayed in 
apartment 320 and were very pleased. 
There was a sea view and a mountain view 
from the balcony. We had 2 big beds and 
the apartment was equipped with coffee 
maker, microwave and other bits and bobs 
that helped the stay. We borrowed their 
coconut mats and towels for the beach, 
and could also have used their chairs 
and body boards. All in all, a very good 
experience and would do it again.

We just stayed at unit #160 and had a 
fabulous time. The unit was exactly as 
advertised on a lovely beach that was 
visible from the lanai. The room was 
very clean and had everything in it that 
we needed for a week's stay (even coffee 
filters and extra beach towels!!). We 
had no issues with hearing the people in 
adjacent units or in adjacent buildings. 
The location on the East side of the 
island is excellent for travel to all 
the sights of Kauai. Brad (owner) was 
very helpful to us in booking our stay 
and answering questions prior to and 
during our stay. The resort had a great 
beach walking path that we used every 
morning to go see the sunrise. The 
other accommodations on/near the resort 
(pool, pool bar, Coconut Marketplace) 
were nice and conveniently located. The 
unit had some nice extra touches: 1) 
Ultimate Kauai Guidebook for use, 2) 
extra beach towels, 3) beach chairs and 
beach mats that were donated by previous 
guests, 4) iPod radio and dock, 5) sheet 
with tips and tricks for a successful 
stay in the unit, and most important 6) 
a notebook with notes from all the 
previous guests that give highlights of 
the stay and restaurants and sights 
worth seeing. The sentiments expressed 
in the notebook, and all the history of 
people enjoying their vacations was 
really special to read. I would 
definitely stay here again.

Thanks to Brad and Wendy for helping to 
make our stay so great!

My husband and I stayed in Unit 239 for our five days in Kauai in April 2012. This condo was perfectly suited for us - clean, perfect for two, and in a great location. Nice amenities at the complex (pool, hot tub, laundry) and adjacent to Coconut Marketplace where we had breakfast at Eggbert's and ice cream in the evenings (try the pineapple whip). Kapaa is a good base camp for exploring Kauai - lots of fun hiking in Kokee State Park and the first section of the Na Pali coast. 

We enjoyed our stay at Kreller's Get Away and recommend it to anyone visiting Kauai!

We stayed in Unit 115 and it was such a delight! We stayed in an ocean front unit last year and wanted to save some money this year. We were a little concered about being a ways away from the ocean but our view was GREAT! The isn't a really bad location in the complex! Brad is very easy to deal with and so helpful! The unit is neat and clean and served our needs well for this trip. I think that my next comment says it all when I say we are already booking our trip for next year as I write this.

My wife and I spent four wonderful days in Unit 
239- Islander on the Beach. The view from the lani 
is great and the Islander on the Beach complex is 
very well kept. If you like to meet some of the other 
guests, just hop in the hot tub around 4 (Happy 
Hour is 4-6) and catch up on the latest places to 
visit, eat, etc. Another reason to stay here is the 
central location to most of the island. We like to 
explore and found this spot to be the best on Kauai. 
And, one of the best restaurants on Kauai is right 
next door - Hukilau Lanai. Brad's instructions on 
the sheet he gives you were very helpful and 
answered many of our questions. Overall, my wife 
and I give it a thumbs up!

Aloha from Kaua'i! This was our first visit to the island, and it is truly a paradise to behold. Krellersgetaway couldn't have been nicer. We found our unit to be very clean, adorable, and a perfect accommodation for our extended stay. And better yet - the view of the ocean and the morning sunrise was breath-taking! The unit is centrally located to the island and makes for easy travel to wherever you might wish to visit. We'd stay here again in a heart beat. We found the Krellers to be most cordial and accommodating to our needs. Choose Krellergetaway for a real winner.

Guest Comment Entered By Homeowner: 
We loved our stay in Kauai in unit 320. It had enough of an 
ocean view to satisfy us and we could watch the sunrise. The 
A/C worked marvelously, drowning out all the noises and the 
mattresses were wonderful. We esp. enjoyed eating waffles 
(from the toaster) on the lanai each morning. The laundry 
was easy enough to use, the hot tub was great and the ocean 
was right there. There isn't enough parking at the place, 
but that is not the Kreller's fault. We walked to eat at 
Coconut Marketplace several nights. By walking south 
towards the airport we spotted a little protected tidepool 
that was perfect for our little grandchildren who were 
staying at the Marriott. We often walked the path between 
the two hotels. Wired internet in the room and Brad gave us 
the code to the wireless next door so we could use the 
tablet in the room. There is WiFi on the porch by the front 
desk.

Wow! We had the most incredible time in Kauai. 
We took our whole family (there were 8 of us) for 
a week to the most beautiful island in Hawaii. We 
stayed in 160 and 115 and they were both 
ground floor which made it so easy to drag 
ourselves back to the rooms after a busy day. 
Both rooms were very clean and the beds were 
so comfortable. We were able to get internet 
access in 115, which was perfect. We loved the 
location as it was central to everything. With a 
big family to feed, we loved that Costco wasn't 
far away and that helped with the food expense 
immensely! We will definitely recommend 
Kreller's to anyone going to Kauai and we will be 
back again soon!!

We stayed a week in unit 115. Working w the 
Kreller's was professional & hassle free. From 
first contact our vacation planning was so easy. 
The unit was extremely clean, nice extras such 
as built in hair drier, iron/board & beach towels. 
Previous renters left great items such as, beach 
chair, boogie boards,large sun umbrella which 
we used during our stay. The pictures do not do 
the unit or property justice. Few steps away is a 
fanatic beach. We were fortunate to see whales 
from the beach & around the Island. The Islander 
On The Beach is directly behind the Coconut 
Market. The location on the Island is perfect to go 
North or South. Not far is a beautiful Safeway & 
Longs Drug Store. We had heard stories about 
the hih cost of items & food.They were not that 
high. Lower than we found items on our trips in 
Alaska. The pool, hot tub & Sand Bar area is 
nice. We met people from around the world. 
What they paid for rooms was so high. We are 
planning to return, in fact our first day out, my 
husband found a place to apply for work. Must 
be a sign. We made friends we hope to see 
again. I highly recommend Kreller's Getaway. U 
will not be disappointed.They make your trip so 
easy, you'll wonder, like us, why we did not go 
earlier to Kauai.

Unit 320 rented from Kreller's Getaway was even better than expected. The unit is clean and comfrtable with a nice terrace. The property, surroundings, proximity to the Coconut Marketplace and Kapa'a town really make this stand out from the rest. The place breathes relaxation withs its wooden style buildings and friendly staff. The peacuful beach is only steps away. To top it off there is a lovely bar at the pool. Brad an Wendy Kreller are very welcoming and will answer your questions from the first inquiry to anything you would like to know on Kaua'i. This place is by far the best value in the area!

Next, the unit was clean, with updated furnishings, dvd player, TV, CD player, AC/Fan unit, hawaiian music CDs (nice touch), Kauai guidebook (another nice touch), kitchen essentials, nice linens and towels including a pair of beach towels (again another nice touch). The view from the 115 lanai was perfect with a nice ribbon of ocean waves visible beyond the beautiful greenery of the hotel/condo grounds. The hotel/condo grounds have nice landscaping with hala trees, cobra lilies, a beautiful orchid collection, and many other species. There are three gas grills next to the pool, hotub, and bar, and a free wifi connection. The beach in front of the hotel/condo is narrow but you can lounge in the sun amongst the palm trees on the grass, and get wet in the ocean. The ocean is a little rocky here, regardless of the sandy beach, but is safe to get wet in with reef walking shoes. Be careful, though, it is probably not super safe here for young children, or a lot of offshore swimming. No lifeguards. The beach is a VERY short dash from Unit 115, and almost as good as being in a beachfront unit. If you are here in the winter, LOOK FOR WHALES from the beach!! The location of the condo, in Kapa'a is excellent with access to the east, north, and south beaches. Restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping, are nearby in Kapa'a, a nice beach town. Kapa'a also has a paved beachfront "boardwalk" trail for strolling and bike riding-GREAT VIEWS. Our favorite nearby beach was Kealia Beach which has a spot for safe swimming to the north, near a breaker, and also surfing and boogie boarding to the south. Another excellent beach for whale watching. A wonderful experience, and I can't recommend this unit or the Krellers enough. Have FUN and mahalo!

Aloha,
We stayed in unit #319 and it was perfect for my husband & I. We stayed for 4 nights and it worked out well for us. The grounds are nice, the unit had a great view as we ate our meals out on the lanai! Checked in Nov. 20th and checked out the 24th 2011. It was quiet and we loved being able to sleep with the sliding glass door open to hear the ocean at night! The place was not crowded during this time and the pool area was nice. The bathroom is huge! A hotel style type room but perfect for a short stay. The cal. king bed was roomy but firm due to being so new. Only complaint was they could leave 1 extra roll of TP our roll was either a small one or not a full one and well anymore than 4 nights and you'd have to buy your own TP! All in all a great location and a quiet place. The price is great and the owners were wonderful to work with! Thanks Krellers! Mahalo for a great start to our 20th anniversary - Samantha and Vernon Miller

It was awesome to watch the sunrise and have breaky on the beach each morning. We made the most of the pool, hot tub and bbq's. Overall we had a blast and would be back there in a shot!

we just spent a week at Brad's wonderful condo in Kauai and we TOTALLY recommend it! the location is perfect (on the beach but private, walking distance to a shopping village/center and easy drive to both south and north of the island). the room itself was clean, with a very classy dark wood theme and easy access to the grounds/beach/parking lot. Brad even left us a box of chocolates which was a nice treat after a long day of travel :)

would definitely come here again! oh and for the price, its just an UNBEATABLE value..we laughed at all the people paying way more for the "pay per night/hotel option".

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL, Don't mortgage the house to visit Kauai. Krellers Getaway's condos are clean, nicely A/C and right on the beach. Studio isn't huge, but very comfortable, and saved $ by eating some meals there. We liked the grill next to the pool. Parking was a challenge-came back one night and no spaces, had to park in "Red No-Parking" area, which seemed OK to do.

Stayed in unit #239 for 5 nights at the end of 
September 2011. It was clean, comfortable and a 
welcome place to call home after a fun day of 
exploring the island. Definitely appreciated the 
blue Kauai Ultimate Guide book & that there 
were beach mats & things left to use. Also liked 
the friendly atmosphere around the pool area but 
know that it is a public area that other locals & 
visitors from other resorts can frequent. If you 
want more privacy, the beach can be a great 
place to escape to and the view is awesome. 
The pool/ocean view & privacy of the room were 
great as was the central location to laundry & 
parking. Great casual food to grab from the 
Coconut Marketplace (The Fish Hut) & TuTu's 
soup Hale and  Monico's Taqueria were also 
fantastic. When you go, make sure to drive all 
the way to the top of the Waimea Canyon drive 
to catch the awesome view of the valley (read it 
in the guidebook). Absolutely breathtaking! Kauai 
is a magical place & I will definitely be back and 
would love to book with the Krellers again! 
Mahalo Brad for all your hospitality!

We just returned from staying in unit #131 from Sept 3 to Oct 1 2011. It is everything the Krellers indicated. Close to all areas of the island, yet quiet, and very laid back so it is easy to recharge the batteries! We took a great many of the Krellers suggestions regarding tours and restaurants and were not disappointed with any of them. We met many friendly people around the Sand Bar, both vacationers and locals. Look up Ally (the bartender) when you go, she is a joy. Thanks Brad, see you next year.

(Unit 160) The memory of beautiful Kauai, highlighted by a sunset cruise along the Na Pali coast, will remain in our minds forever but our stay was made even more special by the chance meeting of Brad & Wendy as they were at Islander on the Beach, not vacationing as we all were, but working to make sure all their units not only met but exceeded their guests' expectations. They were a pleasure to deal with over several emails & phone calls prior to our stay. Not to repeat all the superlatives that their guests have already written, we will just add here that we were lucky enough to see a monk seal, identified as AK13 by animal volunteers, resting on the Islander beach and to be the first to sleep on the new mattress, to cook on the new 2-ring electric stovetop, and to use brand new towels! Mahalo nui loa....hana hou, Brad and Wendy (& please thank Chad for us too)

We stayed at Islander on the beach #151 which was an oceanfront condo. The condo and its surrounding area was very clean with all the facilities - refrigerator , microwave oven, TV, kitchenette with utensils, bath towels, beach mats etc. There are laundry facilities inside the complex as well. The ocean is right in front of the condo - you need to walk just 6-8 steps to reach beach. This is place is located in a central location, so we could easily reach the North/South shores without too much travel. We would definitely choose them if we visit Kauai again ! :)

was a quick walk out the patio to the beach. The

feeling at the 'Getaway'!
Many friendly people come often & stay for long 
periods making it a much cozier 'at home feeling'
than a resort atmosphere although it has all of 
the amenities of a resort. Coconut Market was 
so convenient for many things & their prices were 
very good. Great location to access both the

We spent 7 great nights in unit 319 and loved everything about it, particularly taking our breakfasts on the lanai and watching the sun rise. The unit is particularly private and quiet, except perhaps for the rooster who at least is sufficiently polite to wait until the sun has appeared over the horizon before he sounds his trumpet!! We left the door open to the lanai every night to be lulled to sleep by the ocean waves and to let in the pleasant night air. We particularly enjoyed the fact that we could stroll across the parking lot to Hukilau Lanai for dinner a couple of times. Great food and service! Next time we will also use the barbecues by the pool to cook ourselves a meal. Thanks to Brad and Wendy for offering this place at an affordable price.

I spend 8 great days in unit 319. It's a great unit in an awsome location. It's on the quiet side of the complex, away from the pool bar which can get quite active on the weekends. A great ocean view from your lanai makes for a great place to have breakfast as you watch the sky light up with the sunrise. The unit is stocked with everything you need and more! The complex is very clean and well maintained. I guess the best thing I can say about Kreller's Getaway is "I'll be back!"

Hi Brad,

We enjoyed the unit (#319) very much !!!! It was a great place, good location, quiet, and had all the goodies that we wanted and needed for a brief holiday. The beaches along the east coast were great, I enjoyed the Anini area the most. We went to the Smith Luau which was quite good, and also the boat trip along the Napali coast..... although it wasn't as photogenic as the brochures suggest. I guess it was okay if you like brown. I can't name all that we saw and did, but we have no regrets, and thank you for allowing us to stay in your unit. I do have one question though.......how come there are so many chickens running free on Kauai ????

Many thanks !!!!!!!!!!

Aloha Kellers,
We just got back from Hawaii a couple of days ago. Went 
on to the Big Island to see my family and the weather there 
was as awesome as Kauai.
We want to thank you for sharing your Hale with us. We 
had a wonderful time and it was just a beautiful island to 
visit after so many years. We did the whole island as well 
as saw forgotten family.(that was the highlight of our 
trip). 
Everything was easy to find and follow while staying at 
the Condo. The beach was right at our finger tips and the 
service with the pool area was great. We even had a family 
BBQ there.
I have recommend our family and friends to your place. I 
have this is okay, we really had a wonderful time.

We loved our stay at unit 131 atIslander on the Beach. It was everything and more that we expected. We enjoyed the central location for our exploring the whole island. I especially enjoyed bonding with the sea turtle 3 feet off the beach and snorkeling with him once. we enjoyed a great meal at the Hukilau and the entertainer Tutti Aiu has a magical voice that made me cry happy tears of feeling the aloha spirit. Everyone should be so blessed. Our 33'rd anniversary was perfect. If unit 131 comes up for sale call us.

Great rates for a great spot! This condo is right on the beach, on the East shore about equi-distant to North or South shores. The shower in this unit is like a liquid massage! And the A/C PUMPED! There was beach gear available to us (although not complete sets of mask, snorkel, fins) but got great deal on snorkeling rental. Book on Snorkeling Kauai that was in the room was EPIC! There wasn't any silverware, but Im sure that will be fixed very soon:) The owners were more than gracious and accomodating. We got a GREAT deal on a convertible thanks to the link they provided us. We also were able to cook up our own fish on the bbq grills on site, and our quinoa on the hotplate stove in the room...although going out to eat was maybe my favorite part! There is a great late-night place right across the parking lot, coffee available in the am, shopping all day, food and night life! Even if you didn't leave the condo area, you'd have everything you need! mahalo brad and wendy:)

Unit #115
We had a very enjoyable stay in the condo at Islander on the Beach - it is in a lovely position with ocean views through the garden from the lanai and very convenient being on the ground floor. It was also nice to walk in to music playing and to find a welcome box of chocolates.

We particularly enjoyed having the use of the guide books, particularly the Blue Book and Snorkelling Kauai, both of which we used almost every day. We also appreciated the beach mats, chairs and cooler, and children would love the noodles and boogie boards. 

The only thing we missed was having a jug kettle - we English do like boiling water for our cups of hot tea!

Thankyou Brad and Wendy for a very enjoyable week.

Perfect!!

So we spent 8 days in unit 131 and they're telling the truth when they say just steps to the ocean. We would sleep with the door open some nights listening to the waves. The room had everything that we needed and then some. The bed was extremely comfortable. The location was great for jumping off to explore any part of the island. The Na Pali sunset cruise was fantastic, so were the Puka dogs in Popiu. We went to the Hyatt one night and had dinner at 'Tidepools'. The atmosphere was amazing but the food was kinda hit and miss. Much better local places to eat at. We detoured on the way to the airport to each get another Puka Dog and some relish to take home. The hotel had a great pool side bar with some fun bartenders. Pool area was nice, never really crowded and the grounds of the place were just fantastic. The Coconut marketplace just across the parking lot was very conveniet with the general store being close. Easy acess to access to cheap beer for the cooler provided in the room. It also had a few decent places to eat. We have been telling everyone about this condo and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay on Kauai. We will be back!

I enjoyed my stay at the Islander...I stayed in the first floor unit for 6 days and then moved up to the 3rd floor unit for a few more days. I really liked the ocean view from the 3rd floor. It was so nice to be able to see and listen to the sounds of the ocean from the room. Both Suites were very clean and comfortable.

Our stay at Kreller's Getaway was perfect – we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. When we arrived on property I was blown away by how gorgeous the beach is. The suite was nice – just the right size and with everything we needed. It was peaceful and comfortable and we felt at home. The location is great for exploring the island. We'll definitely come back as soon as we can!

Wow, what a hidden gem! 

We had a wonderful stay on Kauai in studio #131 at the Islander on the Beach. A perfect base for us to explore this incredibly beautiful island. The Coconut marketplace was very convenient for shopping and food. Loved the convection oven and the coffee brew machine was great. Quiet surroundings, very comfortable bed, great price and value. Being right on the beach was simply fantastic. Would definitely return!

What a locale! Imagine just stepping out (literally, just steps away!) every morning to play in the water and lay under the sun. Imagine an oceanfront lanai (and I mean oceanfront!) to enjoy the winding down of the day. We were very impressed and happy with our stay in unit #323 and would surely stay there again. It was very clean, neatly decorated, and just the right size for two. The grounds are beautifully immaculate! Plus, the location was so convenient. It is walking distance to the Coconut Marketplace (great buys/souvenirs), Eggbert's (the best breakfasts and banana macadamia pancakes anywhere), and the Hukalai Lanai (superb dinners well worth the price!) Finally, the place is so central to everything else Kauai offers...other beaches, stores, restaurants, scenic views, etc. Our sincere thanks go out to Mr. Brad Kreller for his guidance, advice, and great service in booking this condo. No doubt, this was one of our most memorable vacations!!!

...A little slice of heaven!

I had recently made some changes in my life and I needed a place to escape the big city and reflect on my past, present and future. I was in need of a recharge! 

Having been to numerous all-Inclusive Resorts in many tropical locations throughout the world, I knew these were going to be filled with noisy drunk people, screaming children and overly loud music. So I opted for a private, quiet rental in Hawaii. I booked my week with Beverly and Bob at #131 "islander on the beach", Kauai, Hawaii.

You can quote me on this...It was a little slice of heaven!!! It easily surpassed all my expectations!

The room was modern and elegantly designed & decorated and a cool retreat from the warm & sunny beach. The beach was literally at my doorstep and the surf lulled me to sleep each night. The bathroom was gorgeous and clean, with a ton of counter space and giant mirrors, which is important to a gal like me, I am a Make Up artist by profession! ;)

I enjoyed the fact that when I wanted to read, write, sleep, do yoga or just simply be alone in this tropical paradise, I could easily do so with no interruptions. And on the flip-side, when I wanted to have a chat with some friendly people, I could do that at in the common areas.

I would highly recommend renting this condo (#131), but get in line...I'm already booking a week with my Boyfriend in November!! Beverly and Bob and Brad are an absolute dream to interact with and I know you'll enjoy them as much as I have.

This was our 7th visit to Kauai, most of those times we have stayed at the Islander. The Islander is a great place to stay as it's halfway to the beaches in the south or the north, although one of my favorite places to spend the day is on the beach in front of the Islander or by the pool. We stayed in room 319, which has an unforgettable view of the ocean from the lanai. I appreciated all the help from Brad, especially his suggestion to try Priceline to rent a car. I had never tried this before and I think we spent half what we usually do (Thanks Brad!). We loved the chocolates awaiting us and using the beach towels, beach chairs, etc. I highly recommend the rooms at the Islander the Krellers offer. Very fair deal. We had a wonderful vacation!

If in doubt, rent this place. We stayed in suite 160 and it was wonderful. The ocean is only yards away, the people are extraordinarily helpful and friendly. There are far too many wonderful sights to see in addition to wanting to spend time on the beach, in the water snorkeling observing every color imaginable in the fish which swimn by. There are a host of wonderful restaurants serving a delightful variety, and yet the simplicity of breakfast on the lanai with fresh fruit purchased from a roadside stand watching and listening to the waves break on the beach is awesome. We will be back, and special thanks to the Krellers for a perfect destination.

Our stay in the Kauai was absolutely wonderful, and Krellers condo #115 was just right for our family vacation. The Krellers were extremely accommodating and helpful in our preparation to come to Kauai. They even helped us find a great deal on a car rental. The condo was in a central location, close to a lot of great stores, and made it easy to explore the entire island. In the condo there was a guest book and a blue travel guide were extremely helpful in finding the best places to go. Some of our favorite places were Kipu Falls, Kealia Beach for Boogie Boarding, the Java Hut for smoothies, and Salt Pond beach (it’s a great beach for little kids).

We totally enjoyed the beauty, peacefulness, cleanliness and the features of unit 160. We have stayed in 1 or 2 BR appts in the past, and weren't sure how a studio would work for us. We were pleased that the space worked very well. We had several meals created by grilling at the Weber grills, located by the pool. The kitchenette had very adequate refrigeration space and worked well to prepare salads and vegies for our meals. We also enjoyed several great bagel, toast, cereal and assorted breakfasts, watching the sun rise from our lanai.

The Islander Resort provides a beautiful, tranquil setting and a very usable sunbathing, snorkling and swimming beach. A rare combination.

Shopping is a short walk away, yet we felt so relaxed in the privacy of this tranquil garden setting.

We could not have asked for a more pleasant vacation.

We have just returned from a great week in unit 160. We arrived late at night after a long flight to find a very clean room and a comfortable bed.The bathroom was also spotless with and very large.We were travelling with 3 other couples and we had the best unit without a doubt. The extras supplied by the Krellers were very much appreciated(beach chairs,towels and mats,cooler and snorkle gear). Unit 160 is on the ground floor which we really enjoyed as it was easy to come and go as opposed to having to go up and down stairs everytime we went out. The view of the ocean is excellent from the lanai and perfect for the morning sunrise.The Hawaiian music cd's provided were also a nice touch. The Islander is situated perfectly on the Island. We didn't have the best weather during our trip but it didn't really matter as we were only 30 minutes from either end of the Island. We would check with the activity desk and ask where the sun was shining and off we would go to one of the beautiful beaches recommended. The ladies at the activity desk also helped us with recommending different activities and restaurants and were spot on with each. They also made our reservations for us. We highly recommend a helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian.You will really see how beautiful and undeveloped this Isalnd still is.Happy hour at the pool bar is fun also. We met some nice people and the Mai Tai's and Pina Coladas were tasty ya.One last thing... I was a bit of a twit one morning(probably too many Mai Tai's the night before) and screwed up the number on our room safe. Unfortunately I had to disturb Brad but he was so understanding and I had the safe open in no time. 
Thanks again Brad and Wendy. We plan on returning next year and we hope it works out that 160 will be available to us again. Phil and Christine, Victoria B.C

WOW! We started our vacation on the wrong foot. When we got to the airport at 7:30 am, we learned our flight was canceled. After hours of waiting in line we were finally transferred to another airline and arrived in Kauai 6 hours from our original reservation. We were so exhausted! We walked into the condo and we were in aw. What an amazing condo. There was music playing on the radio when we arrived along with a box of candy for us. The view from the condo is priceless and the grounds are great. I have to say that I plan on going back to Kauai and will be contacting Brad and Wendy first to try and rent one of their units. It just had that special touch! Thank you so much for the great experience! Mahalo!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kreller's condo #115. We were welcomed with chocolates and Hawaiian music playing. The unit location was great, steps from the parking lot, steps from the beach and next to the ice machine which came in handy. The Coconut Marketplace which is less than a 5 minute walk has shops and restaurants. Pick up beer/alcohol and cheap souveniers at Whaler's Cove. Not being big restaurant eaters and being on a budget, our favorite places to eat there were Aloha Kauai Pizza and Harley's Tropical BBQ. Order both from the window and eat outside at the picnic tables or walk back to your condo for about $7 a person. Would totally recommend renting bikes at Coconut Coasters and riding the 5 mile bike path, it was breathtaking with many secluded beaches. Go early to avoid the crowds! The condo was clean and had everything we needed, mini-fridge, microwave, toaster over, beach chairs, cooler, etc. A great condo for a great price. Thanks Brad and Wendy!

This was absolutely perfect and the Krellers were great to deal with. Kudos to a wonderful vacation!

Brad and Wendy, 

Thank You so much for the use of your condo at Islander on the Beach. Your property was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in room #319 and the view every morning from the lanai of the ocean/sunrise was fantastic. Having stayed at Islander on the Beach years ago we were concerned as the hotel/grounds were very run down and in desperate need of repair. The remodel is fantastic. It was like staying in a totally different resort. The grounds are beautiful and the upgrades in the rooms were very nice!! The location of the hotel is perfect for dining, shopping, beaches, etc. 

Thank you for making the process of renting your condo painless, easy and enjoyable. This was the first time we rented from an individual owner and the experience was very positive. We visit Kauai at a minimum of once a year and would not hesitate to stay at your property again. (In fact, we are looking forward to it.) 

A big thank you to previous guests who donated their beach chairs, boogey boards, etc. It was very much appreciated.

Our 6-day honeymoon in Kauai at the Kreller's unit 319 at Islander on the Beach was fantastic! It was our first trip to Hawaii and we could have stayed for a month! The condo was perfect - great bed, great shower, great kitchen, etc. It was so much nicer than any hotel and so much cheaper! We used the provided air conditioners, flatware and utensils, guide book, boogie boards and snorkel equipment the most. We spent a lot of time on the lanai and loved the view of the ocean. Happy hour at the tiki bar is 4-6 everyday and is a good place to meet visitors and locals - we even had a potluck dinner there once. The location of the condo was perfect for enjoying the beach, finding great places to eat and shop nearby and easily touring the entire island. We highly recommend the Kreller's rentals to anyone going to Kauai - Brad and Wendy are wonderful, will make everything easy for you and are great to work with! Mahalo!

We stayed in Unit #319. It was as advertised: clean, attractive and pleasant. More than that it is located next door to shops and eating places. Good beaches nearby, the airport is 10 min. away as is the main town of Lihue. It is easy to drive to the north coastal attractions as well as the Poipu/Koloa areas to the southwest. Kapaa 1/2 mile to the north has restaurants, Safeway, gasoline, bakery and other stores for your needs. Don't expect to park by your building as the lot was quite congested when we were there.

Unit #319 is lovely, very clean and had a view of the beach from the lanai. We enjoyed all the little amenities that are included in the unit, microwave, the coffee maker, the utensils and most of all the box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Quite a nice welcome treat. When we booked the units, we stayed too at the Keller's ground floor unit (#115), both have the same amenities, though there are some differences between the units, but enjoyed both of them. Would suggest staying at ground floor unit if you can not deal with going up 3 flights of stairs, as the building does not have an elevator. If you like the view of the beach while drinking your mai-tai, go for the 3rd floor unit, and you will enjoy it. Though you can also see the beach from the ground floor unit. At the 3rd floor unit, you can even leave the sliding door open at night and listen to the sound of the ocean. Thanks Brad and Wendy for sharing your units with us and thanks too, for giving us the great deal. We will definitely come back to stay in any of the units again and highly recommend any of the units to those reading this comment.

Each day my husband and I would just head out and decide right or left to explore a new part of the island. There is also right great shopping and dining here. All in all this is definately a place we will be coming back to in the future!! Maholo to Brad and Wendy :)

We stayed in Unit #160 for 3 days and didn't want to leave. Brad and Wendy are very accomodating. So many extras that a normal hotel room would not have, i.e. snorkel equipment, corkscrew, wine glasses, cooler, etc. The view is great too! We enjoyed eating breakfast outside every morning. It is a great value... can't be beat. We are planning our next stay, and it will definitely be here.

The unit was PERFECT! Plenty of room for 4 people. 
Everything you see in the pictures is exactly as it is. 
Brad and Wendy are wonderful hosts and work to 
meet any of your needs. If and when we are able to 
come back to Kauai, we will definitely stay here 
again and hope to bring our kids and grandkids 
with us next time. You will not be able to find a

You simply will not find a nicer place for the price. Brad and Wendy have everything in the unit that you could want. And the location is absolutely perfect to serve as a jumping off point for most anything you'd like to do in Kauai. I give this unit the highest recommendation

We had a great stay in #160! We were so pleased with the room and the location of it, just steps to the beach. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone! My favorite thing about it was sitting on the porch watching the sunrise and eating breakfast. You can actually see the sunrise from bed if you are on the side closest to the ocean! My wifes favorite thing was watching the birds and chickens roam around the grounds and tossing them cereal. Brad and Wendy were great to work with, they made everything so easy and were always very friendly.

Slept well in #115 and got up early feeling rested and in time for the gorgeous sunrises. We beat the roosters to the punch LOL, and then enjoyed a little breakfast on the porch with the kitty and chickens. Perfect communications with the Krellers, and everything in order and ready for us upon arrival. Great place in a lovely spot in the most incredible island of Hawaii. Thanks Brad and Wendy!

2008/11/12 We have just completed a one week rental of Unit 319. We were most pleased with the facility including the room amenities, beautiful views and proximity to the ocean. The Islander on the Beach general facilities were attractive and well maintained. We found the bbq facility at poolside most accessible and the location of the unit, with the ocean just a few hundred meters away, was available to us on our lanai. Additionally, the Krellers were most accommodating hosts, both during the planning time and with any questions we had. We not only recommend but would like to return.

#319 was the perfect place to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. The unit was very clean, the view is better than depicted in the website as the ferns are gone, so the view is very open to the ocean. The pool was very clean and the guests fun to talk to. Kapaa's location mid island is great for driving to the North for the day or the South another day. Recommend the heli tour by Sunshine, Kauai Sea Tours for the Sail and Snorkel tour and Nat'l Botanical Gardens. Snorkeling with a boogie board allowed us to skim over the reefs and see more than not using them. Thanks to Brad and Wendy for having the snorkel gear and boards to use. It was truely paradise!

Every day of our week long stay (9/2 - 9/9/08) we've gone out to explore the island and come home to a nice and peaceful setting for our rest. We truly enjoyed the condo and loved dealing with the Krellers (we did forget about the timing difference b/w HI and CA at first and had called them super late one night (sorry!!) and they still picked up their phone). Highly recommend renting from them as they truly strive to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!! Thanks again and we wish we could return soon!!

We stayed in unit #115 for a week the end of Aug. and first part of Sept. We should have stayed 2 weeks! After a hectic year, we found Brad and Wendy's condo really relaxing! The box of choc. was a pleasant surprise, as were the snorkle gear, (we'd brougnt our own gear), beach towels and beach chairs. The suggestions in the guest book were helpful. We could have travelled with just carry-ons.
We really enjoyed the food at Hukilaui Lanai, a short walk from the condo. Good fish sandwiches at TC's Island Grill, good barbeque at Scotty's Beach Side BBQ in Kapaa.
We took a catamaran trip from Hanalei around Na Pali, into some sea caves, and time for some snorkling. Beautiful! Took the road past the Wamaiamea look-out, to the small museum, and to the end of the road, where we parked and hiked awhile.
Bought ahi at Costco, barbequed it on one of the 3 good Weber gas grills by the pool.
The condo was clean and everything we needed was there. The air conditioning was great!
Wendy and Brad respond quickly to clalls and e-mails. We heard about their condo from our Minnesota cousins who have stayed here several times.
We hope to return for a longer visit, if we can find bargain airfares!

This is our second stay at this resort.This was our first time
that we rented the private condo. We stayed again because we just loved the
location, the grounds, the beach within steps of our rooms. The stores,shops,
resteruants,etc. all right by us , but yet a world away it seems. The grounds
are beautiful. The rooms our very pleasing. We chose #319 this trip based on the
pictures provided through the website and we were very pleased with its
wonderful views and location within the resort property.(And the room itself)The
owners seem wonderful to work with and most helpful about any inquiries. This
place is a great getaway if your looking for quiet relaxation in paradise. The
beach is not crowded and you are centrally located to most attrctions. If you
like the small vs. the large resort atmosphere with a great location ,my wife

We stayed in Unit 160 and couldn't have been more pleased. After a long, late flight we devoured half the box of chocolates that were left as a gift for us, thank you! This unit is literally about 20 steps away from the beach, and every morning we ate breakfast on the lanai while watching the ocean, as well as being entertained by the resident chickens and kitties. The location of the hotel is ideal if you are active and want to see everything on the island. It was only a half hour drive to the North shore as well as to the West shore, the Waimea River is right there to kayak up to the "secret falls", and Lydgate Park which is less than a mile away is the best place for a first time snorkeler or just a nice easy place to swim. Having the cooler & snorkel gear was great, as well as the kitchen which allowed us to prepare our own meals and reheat leftovers, we saved a ton of $$ staying here. We spoke to a honeymoon couple that was paying $300 a night directly to the hotel, we felt guilty telling them how little we spent. The air conditioning was a life saver the first few nights while we acclimated to the heat from our chilly northwest weather. After our stay here we had to meet up with family and stayed at a spendy resort in Poipu, however both of us wanted to go back to our little "home" at the Islander. We highly recommend staying in the Kreller's properties, they were so easy & pleasant to work with, always responded right away, and with a sense of humor too! Thanks so much for a fanstastic vacation, wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely be back. -Aloha-

This year we stayed in unit #115 last year we stayed in unit #160 and hopefully we'll be back in the future. With the current airline and economic situation who knows. The only thing we can count on is getting a Super deal from Brad & Wendy, they help in making Kaua'i a little more affordable. As for the Island of Kaua'i and the the beautiful Islander On The Beach there's not much more to add to all the prior comments by former guest. Kaua'i is a great place to visit and using "Krellers getaways" is one of the best ways to make your stay afforable and enjoyable.

My family and I stayed in Unit 319. Everything was better than expected!Our vacation was beyond fabulous! There's plenty of things to do on this island. We snorkeled (gear in room), hiked, kayaked, ziplined, rock climbed and went tubing. Of course we also enjoyed the beautiful beaches, sunsets & sunrises. The Monk Seals tend to beach themselves around 7:00am and go back into the water around 5:45pm. It became a daily amusement for us.
Rent with confidence when you rent from Brad & Wendy. Communication is great. We also enjoyed the surprise gift in the room!

We stayed in unit #115 in early April - the unit was perfect! The lanai was protected (it rained one day but we still were able to have coffee outside) and had a view of the ocean. The room was immaculate and there were plenty of towels, pillows and kitchen ware for the stay. The instructions were well detailed and the Krellers had the best travel book in the room for guests to use.
As promised, the beach was 75 steps away (though we didn't actually count) and each morning there was a harbor seal snoozing on our beach.
Be sure to enjoy the pool including the island drinks and note that there is a webcam near it in case your friends and family miss you.
This condo really made us feel like we were far away from the frenzy of the mainland - it was really the perfect vacation home.

Aloha! We spent our hollidays from 2008 march 1 to 16th in unit 319. Well it was really very nice and quiet place. You can find even a snorkling near in this unit, and a few very helpfull Kauai guide books. Coconut market place it's just a few minutes away from home, where you can find a great and tasty local food for low price! Unit is very close to the beach, with nice gold sand beach. location is great for accessing any part of the island Norht and South. We traveled arround all the island, and I can say, Kappa is the best place for stay!

The another very good thing, there is WiFi available in 319 unit! also some nice little grey birds flying to balcony every day, they are very lovely if you feed them a little bit bread. They become our good friends during our stay. 

We reccomending visit moloaa bay, it's the most beautifull beach in Kauai, and it's close Kapaa.

I definitely reccomending to anyone this great unit! you will be not dissapointed staying there.
It's was Excellent stay at the Islander and we hope to come back there again.

This was the ideal break for me. Although I live in Seal Beach, CA,1/2 block from the water, many weeks I do not see my house in the daylight. I spend long hours working and making a buck.

Brad was great to deal with and very quick responding to questions, etc. The location is super convenient for exploring the island - shops and restaurants a few steps away at the coconut marketplace.

Unit 160 was very clean and we had a great experience. The room was exactly as advertised. Our first night, literally Christmas night, we couldn't get the air conditioner to work. The next morning we called the owners who were very responsive in giving instructions and when that failed, had someone there within minutes to help out. They were very pleasant and helpful and did everything they could to fix a problem that wasn't their fault. (It was a faulty sensor installed by the facility). I would highly recommend renting from them and would give them a 100% satisfaction rating.

Sounds of the breeze and waves at night, easy access to the ocean, cleanliness of the unit, and closeness to restaurants and shops were strong positives for us. Responsiveness of the owners to all our questions is considerably above and beyond what we experienced elsewhere. We will make it our choice for future stays on Kauai!

We enjoyed the condo (#319) and loved Kauai! The only problem we had was that you don't own and rent out condo's on other islands!! We will definitely recommend your condos at the Islander to friends and family!

We had a great time. The condo is located in a perfect location, plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance or a short drive. Everything at the complex was nice, pool was clean and well manicured and the sand bar at the pool was fun. Monk seals even showed up on the beach a time or two. I would reccommend this property without hesitation and will probably return at some point.

We have been going to Kauai for 25 years and this year decided to rent a condo. We could not have been more pleased with Wendy and Brad's place (#115)at the Islander. Everything is nicely put together and, when they say all you have to do is pack your clothes, they are right. They have thought of everything. the unit is close to the beach, quiet and affordable. What else could you want? Restaurants, shops, swimming pool, the ocean. Paradise found! Mahalo Wendy & Brad.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Unit 160. It was a great location, just steps from the beach. The room was really nice and the resort was beautiful. Brad and Wendy do a great job of having everything you need already available in the room! It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go back.

We had a fantastic time in Kauai, the room (115) and central beach side location was perfect for all the exploring the island had to offer.From Snorkeling with turtles at Ke-e beach to Waimea canyon, We will be going back again, Thanks.

We just returned from a week stay in unit 319. The condo was a great place to stay and comfortable in all aspects. It was comforting to have a nice place to come back to after a full day of sight-seeing. The unit was clean and had all the necessary amenities. The central location of the condo made it easy to get around the island. The area around the resort was great; I couldn’t get enough of the beach that was within steps from the room. We also enjoyed the pool (and the poolside bar). The Coconut Marketplace is a convenience with basics like food and snacks or shopping for souvenirs. I can not say enough about our trip to Kauai! I loved the island! I have already recommended Brad & Wendy’s condo to friends and hope to return soon!

We rented units 319 and 160 in Oct. 2007. The Islander on the Beach has such a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. The beach is great!!! I loved the Coconut Marketplace being right there!!! The units are nice and have all the things you need to have a memorable vacation.

The book on things to see in Kauai was great and so was the candy left for us to enjoy!

We had a wonderful time in the condo. We rented unit 160 with an ocean view and just steps from the beach. The condo was perfect, and had all beach and snorkel stuff as well as beach towels. The pool and pool bar were great, and there are lots of restaurants in the area. Brad and Wendy were very helpful and forthcoming, and it was a pleasure to get to know them via the internet. The condo is well located on the island kind of midway between north and south and serves as a good base for exploring if you are so inclined. On the other hand, you can get a good book, a mai tai, and a lounge chair, and sit by the pool and soak up the sun. It was wonderful.

My wife & I just celebrated our 30th anniversary on beautiful Kauai, and our stay at the Krellers' unit 160 was wonderful. I would agree with almost every comment left by other posters here.

Everything was as advertised and we made 
use of almost all the facilities listed. 

We would definitely do business with Brad and Wendy again.

A note to snorkelers: go to Lydgate park just down the road and bring some bread to feed the fish. They will eat it out of your hand! (Don't forget the disposable underwater camera, available almost anywhere.)

I recommend Brad and Wendy's property without hesitation and would happily spend another week there. Our September week in #160, celebrating our 40th anniversary, far exceeded our high expectations. If we were planning this trip again, we would do it exactly the same way. Great facility, well-kept grounds, great location, great people to deal with, and of course a great price. I agree with all previous guest comments except the one that suggests the hotel's ocean beach is suitable for swimming. Although a few adult guests were sometimes in the water close to shore, signs warn that the waters may be hazardous, and there are no lifeguards. However, the sandy beach lined with palm and other trees is a great place to sit, sun, relax, watch surfers, and watch fabulous sunrises, and the pool is also available. Lydgate Park's fine protected beach, which is suitable for children and snorkeling, is very close by. We were a little worried about possible rainy weather on the leeward side of the island, but it was sunny most of the time we were there, and cloudy or windy periods were still quite comfortable.

We stayed in Unit#160 and it was great! It's just steps away from the beach and has many ammenities to make for a very comfortable stay. The room also came with snorkeling gear for our use, which was much appreciated since that meant we didn't have to rent anything. The location beachside is not only great, but staying in Kapa'a made it very easy for use to get to the north side to visit Hanalei and Princeville as well as drive down to the Po'ipu and out the the west side of the island to take in the breathtaking sights of Waimea Canyon. Maholo to the Krellers for providing this great place to stay while we enjoyed our time in Kauai.

We loved staying in 115. As others have noted, the unit is in a great location, well furnished and very comfortable. The Ultimate Kauai guide book provided in the room is an excellent one and helped us make the most of our week long visit. We left lots of restaurant tips in the guestbook so you'll have to just stay in 115 to learn more. Business with the Krellers, also flawless. Mahalo and Aloha. Athena and Kevin

We hated to leave! Our stay in #160 was everything we'd hoped it would be. The unit was comfortable, well-equipped, and perfectly positioned near the beach. We liked being able to keep easy breakfast food, snacks & drinks right there so we weren't having to go out all the time. And we even grilled at the pool one night. Free wireless internet in the lobby was nice as well so we could keep in contact w/ our kids back home (also nice that it wasn't in the room so we weren't tempted to check email quite so often!). Brad was very prompt with emails and easy to deal with. We hope to return someday and will definitely recommend to friends & family. Loved it!

Just got back from Kauai! So sad to return when I left paradise behind! The unit, 115 was perfect. Kapaa is so central to Waimea and the North Shore. The beds were very comfortable and I must say the fact that the unit is air conditioned is a big big plus. My friends stayed in non air conditioned places and were jealous!!!
The unit is clean, pretty, short little walk to the beach and pool. Fabulous!!! I would stay here again.
Brad and Wendy, thanks so much.

The studio and condo complex were GREAT! The beach was just a few steps out the door and had a sandy beach great for sun bathing or swimming. It is also a great location for watching the sunrise, which we did 4 of the 5 days we were there. Parking was hassle free and there is a great market next to the complex with excellent shops and inexpensive restaurants with great food (Pizza was very good and the fish hut has great shaved ice, egg beaters has a very good breakfast). We would definitely recommend staying here.

Nice place at a good price. Only a short walk (25yds?) to the beach. We took walks along the shore most mornings and saw monk seals a couple of times. In the evening we often relaxed on the beach until the end of the day. 

Good location in the middle of the island. Just a short half hour to either the north or south beaches.
