Sunsets and beach access
It was a very nice stay that offered great sunsets every night. In house washer and dryer for our clothes, and within walking distance to popular beaches. It had similar accommodations that a resort would. The unit its self was also very roomy and comfortable.
Susan And Paul, Lake Forest, CA says
Location location location!! This place was perfect for our time in Poipu. The view from the deck and master bedroom! And just minutes from beach and parks. The property is well stocked with everything we needed.
Great Value in a Great Location
Nihi Kai Unit 200 met all of our family's needs. Its location and views are hard to beat. We were also surprised by just how large the unit is - there was plenty of room for our family of four. Despite there being no AC, the unit stays surprisingly cool being right on the ocean and having plenty of ceiling fans to circulate the air - we had no trouble sleeping at night or hanging out during the day. The unit is tastefully decorated and a close walk to some amazing beaches. If you want to stay on the South Shore this unit's value is hard to beat.
Kenny, Portland, OR says
Great condo in an awesome location. Very clean and well stocked. Would definitely stay here again!
John P. says
Our unit was fresh and clean with plenty of room to relax and be comfortable. The staff is knowledgeable on the area and offers great recommendations. Our views are amazing!
Luis, San Ramon, CA says
Great location and place to stay. A little dated but then so are most older properties on the island. A plus are the great views from the lanai
Beautiful condo with a wonderful breeze on the upper level. Very spacious throughout. We enjoyed lanai with a great view. The lower level, where all the rooms are, gets a little stuffy. Could use some extra fans. Overall, temperature never got unbearable during our July visit but we were gone during the hottest part of the days. Text message Check-in was flawless and Parrish staff provided all the information we needed. We would definitely stay here again!
Jenni, White Salmon, WA says
Condo was magnificent! Plenty of room and epic lanai to dine or enjoy your morning coffee. We loved the view and the walk to Poipu beach was very close. We started each morning and ended each evening watching the sea turtles coming in and out of the water. Location was great and Parrish was super responsive when asked any questions. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Mahalo Jenni for your five-star review and comments. Glad to hear that you really enjoyed the unit and its views. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.
Our experience was second to none, the intire stay was exactly as stated. The pictures of the fantastic views was exactly as shown. The staff are very friendly and there to help with a smile if needed. Parrish texted us a lot asking if there anything we needed etc. their word is gold. What they say is what it is. You will make a great decision by booking with them, because they understand your spending your money and trusting them for you memories. 5 stars.
Mahalo Larry for your five-stay review. We appreciate your kind and thoughtful comments. We are honored that you trusted us with your memories and we look forward to hosting you again. A hui hou.

Nihi Kai #200 is the BEST!!!
I’ve stayed in #200 before. The location, view and amenities are great!! This time there were many tiny flies around! Not a problem - just never had seen them before! Love the pool area. I will be back!!!!
Mahalo Patricia for your 5-star review and loyalty. We were so happy to welcome you back to Nihi Kai #200 and we are glad that you had another wonderful stay. You might notice the gnats a little bit when the tradewinds die down. We appreciate your understanding and are glad they did not disrupt your stay at all. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou.
Robin, Weslaco, TX says
We had a GREAT stay at this beautiful place! Great views of the ocean & so close to everything in the Poipu Beach area. Would love to stay at this place again. Great deal too! ♥️
Mahalo Robin for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the location of Nihi Kai Villas #200. We are already looking forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou!
Cory, Littleton, CO says
Condo was great. Great location and quick walk to Poipu Beach. Beautiful ocean/pool views from the patio. Only downfall was no air conditioning in the unit. Even with that, still had an amazing trip and fun stay.
Mahalo Cory for your review and comments. We are thrilled that you loved the location and the views from the lanai. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha.
Oscar, Denver, CO says
Great place in an excellent location! The host is very attentive and made check-in and checkout a breeze.
Great Stay in Poipu Beach
We had a great stay at the condo in Poipu beach. Great location, super close to Poipu Beach (5 min walk). Really nice pool. Beautiful ocean view facing the perfect direction for sun set. The unit is well stocked with everything you\'d need for your stay including beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. The only think that could have made our stay better is AC. There are ceiling fans but it was still a bit hot at night. Overall recommend the place and would be back.
Anthony G. says
Great resort, well maintained with friendly staff and maintenance staff at Nihi Kai! Easy and convenient, well lit area when we arrived after sunset in the evening.
Mahalo Anthony for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that you loved the resort, unit, and location. We love hearing that you had an easy after-hours arrival. We are already looking forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!
Diana S. says
Great location of complex. NO AIR CONDITIONING
Great location of this unit for sunsets, walks, and access to pool. Some people may not like the pool being just feet away. Noise at times. The sewer smelled terrible at the pool and at this unit. The tool closet for the grounds people is attached outside the bottom floor bedrooms. Five am wake up by them one day. Gravel walkway is used day and night right outside the bedroom. Cut through for may people. Complaint was never addressed properly by management. Weather on this side was wonderful. Big park a couple blocks down. Was not comfortable leaving the baby sleeping downstairs in bedrooms unattended since foot traffic was continuous by this unit. This particular unit not kid friendly. Geared more towards adults since many decor items had to be put up from kids. No kid items and none available for unit. Would need to rent these at additional cost. The road was right outside the one bedroom along with the sidewalk. Not very private. Shades needed closed at night or people could see in. NO AIR CONDITIONING! hot during day light hours.
Mahalo Diana for your 5-star review and comments. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the unit and sunsets. We agree, that a unit right near the pool may not be the right selection for everyone. We are sorry about the noise from the ground staff. After reporting it to us, we addressed your concern by contacting the on-site manager who spoke with the grounds team. At checkout, you said that they hadn’t disturbed you again after the first morning. Also, for the protection of our guests, we generally do not provide any child care items. Instead, we suggest the local vendors to supply clean, sanitized, and working equipment for your child care needs. For next time, we do have a collection of properties specially curated for families. Please let us know and we will help you select a perfect unit for your next visit. Aloha and a hui hou!

great location, large condo, loved watching the sunset from our patio.
Mahalo Daphne for your review and comments. We love hearing that you loved the location and views from your lanai! We cannot wait to host you again. Aloha!

We love appt #200!!!!
???? Everything! Staying in your apartment is so much better than a hotel. Location and town was perfect. Having a kitchen was fantastic! We loved the balcony and sat there every afternoon watching turtles. We will be back.
???? N/a we loved everything.
James , (GB) says
Our stay was relaxing, enjoyable and the perfect way to kick start our honeymoon.
???? The location and view were stunning. Relaxing environment. Immaculate villa.
???? Only thing was the crockery which was tired and dated. Could do with a refresh in particular plastic tumblers etc.
Mahalo James. We will be sure to check whole kitchen to ensure it is well stocked. Aloha.
Great View & Location
We had a great week in Poipu. Villa #200 was very clean and kept and spacious!. The views of Brenneke’s Beach and Poipu Beach park from the porch were spectacular. A short walk to beach and food was an added bonus.
#200 - Paradise overlooking the ocean!
Stayed here for 5 nights as our base to explore Kauai. Simply perfect for two couples sharing. Requested house keeping to change the bed configuration in the second bedroom from twin to King. Super comfy! The overhead ceiling fan was all we needed to keep cool overnight. And it was great that each couple had their own bathroom too.
Loved that the bedrooms were on the ground floor, meaning that upstairs the living, dining, kitchen and balcony had superb views towards the ocean. Our villa was the closest to the ocean, as well as easy access to the pool area too.
Tip for travellers – to avoid having to drag suitcases up the external stairs to the entrance, and back down the internal stairs to the bedrooms – pop inside & downstairs & open the sliding glass bedroom doors to get the bags through that way.
Villa was very clean & well appointed with a fully equipped kitchen. A phone in the room allowed you to book local restaurants & tours easily too.
Definitely recommend & we can’t wait to come back!
Perfect Location at Poipu Beach
We stayed in unit #200 and it was perfect for our family vacation. Our kids loved the fact that they could walk 50 yards to the beach to go boogie boarding! The condo was perfect with the most spectacular view of the ocean and amazing sunsets! We hope to come back and visit in the future, and if we do we will definitely stay here again. My only complaint would be that the hot tub wasn’t turned on…..but I got over that quickly, as I was too busy looking at the sunset.
A perfect family getaway...we did not want to leave!
We stayed in unit 200 at Nihi Kai during late april 2011. It was absolutely perfect. The unit is very nice and is decorated with beautiful pictures of the island that the owners have taken over the years. It is a great way to see where you might want to explore! The unit well equipped and there are even beach chairs and coolers to take to the beach. There were plenty of towels and having the washer/dryer in the unit was very convenient. The only negative (and it is minor in my book) is that the kitchen and bathrooms are a bit outdated but they are very clean. If you are looking for fancy, this is not it. The view from the lanai is outstanding. We spent many evenings watching the sunset from there and we even saw some whales swimming off in the distance. The proximity to the pool is very convenient and it is just a short walk to Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach. Even though there is no air conditioning, we were never hot in the unit. It gets a great cross breeze and I loved having the doors open to the fresh air! The pool was a hit with our kids. It has a smaller kiddie pool that is only 3 feet and then the big pool gets deep pretty fast. One of my kids even learned to swim during our visit. Overall the property is beautiful, the other guests are very friendly, the units are well equipped and the location is great. Parrish is also great to work with. If you are looking for fancy, this is not it but it is perfect if you are looking for a place with lots of amenities for a reasonable price. We we definitely plan to come back but next time we plan to stay longer!! There are so many amazing places in Kauai – make sure you explore all sides of the island while you are there. The north side of the island is breathtaking and Polihale Beach on the west side is amazing (go at sunset with a 4×4). Thanks to the unit owners for giving us the opportunity to share in their beautiful place! We loved it! Mahalo, The Delowery Family
Excellent location and lovely condo
We rented Nihi Kai 200 through Parrish Collection. 1st off, Parrish is an excellent company to work with. Their customer service and attention to detail is amazing. I noticed that the plug for the toaster was frayed. I called the office to report this, told them we did not need a new toaster until the next day and that we were heading out in about an hour. Well, within 20 minutes, they had a brand new toaster for me at the front door. I also mentioned that the folks in Unit 101 were a bit loud in the early mornings (up and talking loudly at 5:30 a.m.). Parrish took care of that; asking them to please be aware of the new time zone. we were able to check in a bit early and everything was ready for us, including a lovely bouquet of tropical flowers. The condo was exactly as advertised. The upper floor (living area and kitchen) had beautiful views of the Poipu coastline and we had a very larg lanai to enjoy the sunset. We often walked out to Brennecke’s Beach to also take in the sunset. The heated pool was right in front of our condo. I was concerned about noise but it was never an issue. I also thought that we would have road noise from Pe’e Road but that never happened either. We could hear and see the ocean from every room in the condo (except maybe the back guest bedroom). And even though we stayed for 2 weeks in august, we never need a/C. Since this unit is on the end and had wondows on 3 sides, we had plenty of airflow. The location is fabulous and the price was perfect!
The unit was great! Very spacious with all the comforts of home. Note to first time stayers – don’t bother packing soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. – Parrish provides these – the products are local and we picked some up in Koloa to take home. The unit lived up to the pictures on Parrish’s website – especially the sun sets. Very close to the beach, a short drive to the restaurants of Poipu, and a great “home base” if you plan to hike on the western side as well as visit the east and north coasts. Highly recommended.
After a little blip with fax machine challenges, the overall service experience was nothing short of terrific. The “home” we were in was ideal for us. Perfect, in fact. It truly was our home away from home. And I want to take a moment to mention the incredible service we received from Pat Finberg in lining up activities and having reservations in place. It was as if she knew us. The whole package was ideal. I wish we’d known earlier about the late check out option. We grabbed the opportunity. Poor person cleaning our room didn’t get the word however. I would have to say what I liked the least was that we ran out of toilet paper, and the person in the office on duty said we had to get our own. That seemed kind of petty and stupid after such an ideal experience. The information in the room indicated we could have “purchased” some from the office, so what’s up with that? I can tell you that we had the vacation of a lifetime and staying with y’all was a significant contribution to the overall experience. We can only hope to have the pleasure of returning to paradise again sometime in the future.
Unit 200 at Nihi Kai
We have used Parish a number of times for properties on Kauai. Beautiful view from the lanai of 200. The unit was well maintained. We have stayed at Nihi Kai (400 and 100) in other units before, but we like 200 for the reasonable price and great view.

A Slice of Paradise
Our family spent a wonderful 16 days in this condo. We have been staying at the Nihi Kai Villa Resort for the past 4 years when we travel to Kauai. This was the first time in Unit #200 and we found it to be our favorite. The condo is very well equipped with everything you might need when you are away from home. The interior is beautifully decorated and from the moment you walk through the door you feel relaxed. The view is absolutely breathtaking and we spent a lot of time sitting out on the lanai enjoying the sunsets. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to spend time on sunny Poipu. There is no need to bring anything other than yourselves and your bathing suits! Aloha
Wonderful view and location
This was our first trip to Hawaii. We spent time on Oahu, The Big Island, Maui, and Kauai. We enjoyed all the islands but Kauai was our favorite. We attribute this mostly to the wonderful accomodations we had at Nihi Kai Villa’s Unit 200. The spectacular view and convenient location made it really special. We were there over Thanksgiving so I wanted to cook the traditional dinner of turkey, stuffing, etc. Everything I needed was available in the unit and having the meal on our balcony overlooking the ocean is a memory I will never forget!
Beautiful ocean view condo in sunny Poipuu
We were thrilled when we opened the door and saw our ocean view from the living room and the lanai, plus there is a great ocean view from the master bedroom–it was even better than the photos showed. We so enjoyed being able to hear the waves from both bedrooms at night. The bathroom amenities that were provided were very nice and the kitchen was very well equipped. We cooked all of our meals in and enjoyed breakfast, cocktails, and appetizers on the 2nd floor lanai and dinners in the dining room. For outings we would pack a lunch and use the beach chairs, cooler, and mats that were provided. I think this is the nicest 2 bedroom in the complex. As far as the overall complex was concerned, the pool was very well maintained and we enjoyed it but wished that it had stayed open until at 10p.m. instead of closing at 8p.m. The flowers and landscaping were beautiful. Although we didn’t use them, there are tennis courts and gas BBQ’s (we weren’t able to light the BBQ for some reason).
Lovely, Quiet, Perfect Location
We have been to the different islands of Hawaii many times and this condo is by far our favorite place. The location is stunning, it was quiet and the view beyond compare. A short walk to Brennecke Beach for unbelievable boogie boarding waves – to ride or just watch. A little more walking and you are at Poipu Beach – so lovely. The condo it self was very nice, the tradewinds were blowing all the time so we were cool and comfortable most of the time.
