About West Flato

Married. Retired school administrator from San Diego. Owned in Sandpiper since 2009. Originally from Santa Barbara where I was born and raised. I have one daughter living in Houston, Tx, married w/3 boys. We are loving Kauai!

West Flato purchased this studio in 2009

Why West Flato chose Kauai

We had vacationed here several times and chose Sandpiper because of its old Hawaiiana style, the amenities, and location on the North Shore. The vegetation is very lush, the song birds are plentiful, the condos are kept up nicely, and its one of the few with a big pool, spa, and BBQ in the same area. Good for entertaining and relaxing. Also the lanais are of the largest of any condos in the area, expanding your outdoor living.

We have a sunset view, and the studio is considered a garden apt. even though we are nicely located on the 2nd floor.

What makes this studio unique

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

West's studio was perfect for my wife and I. The north shore location was very convenient to our favorite beaches and the town of Hanalei. West supplied all the beach gear we needed. Great little community with a nice pool and barbecue area as well. If a studio sized spaces fits your needs you can't go wrong with this one.

Very Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this studio apartment. West lives right next door and was so accomodating and helpful. The apartment is nicely stocked with all the items you need for the beach. The complex also has a very nice pool area with grills. A grocery store is near by so we would pick up some things and BBQ at the pool. We cooked out there a couple of times. I also enjoyed the kitchenette on the lanai. The bed was comfortable. The only draw back is that this apartment gets very warm in the late afternoon to early evening. West has lots of fans in there which helps to keep the air moving, but it can get a little uncomfortable. However we were there in August which is the hotest month in Hawaii.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Debbie. August in Kauai is our warmest month because of the storms that come through and leave us with high humidity. The Trades are extremely light. I can only make suggestions on how to enjoy that time of day. The rest is up to how it's executed. Thanks again for being our guests.

Great little Condo

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at West's Condo at Sandpiper. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and spacious and well stocked with all the essentials. It was very central to everything we wanted to do on the North Shore. The owner West was extremely forthcoming and even left some beautiful Plumeria flowers for us. Can highly recommend this Condo.

Small but awesome.

  • 5 of 5

The unit is cozy and inviting. The location is farther away from the canyon and other things we wanted to do, but that meant we had to explore and cruise the island.

Great stay and I will come again. The trails are muddy so be prepared for a hike. The area is beautiful even on a rainy day. Thanks for a great stay. Mahalo.

Perfect for 2!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at West's place. Clean, cozy, and the perfect size for two people. Nice and quiet location, but also close to restaurants, shops, and other activities. The pool area is very nice as well. West was very responsive and friendly. Do not hesitate to book here!!

Great for a short stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for my husband and I who were in Kauai for two nights. West the owner lives close by and is very kind to guests. The location is key for the many things we did while we were in town. Loved walking to see the beautiful sunsets every evening. It was quite an event. With the fans on to keep the temperatures comfortable, it was a little loud, but that also was similar to a sound machine in the background. A great stay for our time. Thank you West for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, Jen. Nice having you. Of course the fan that was loud was turned on high and was to be turned down by its remote so it had a softer sound, nevertheless, am glad it kept the place cool. Please come back soon.

A Kauai Visitors' Guide ("The Blue Book") is provided and for your use while in residence with us. You'll find it very useful in locating different beaches all over the island. All kinds of activities are elaborated on and it is truly a guide to the Island. You will be surprised how centrally located our condo is to all the recreation the North Shore has to offer. The closest beach is 5 min away and there are several in that range. Hanalei Town is 7 min away over a one way bridge. It offers the most places to dine and shop on the North Shore. Several beaches are near by that you can just drive up to the water and set up camp. It's a very relaxed, island style of living and a comfortable way to enjoy all the North Shore has to offer. (Example: Drive right up to the beach and put your kayak, paddle board, surf board right in the water!) Island Style!
