Great location

This unit was very nice and clean. A little dated, but that made it charming. Great location with access to the beach, pool, etc.

Mahalo Dawn. Glad to hear how much you enjoyed the unit and its location. We are already looking forward to hosting you again soon.

Quiktrip to Kauai

The first expression that came out of my kids mouths when we open the door was oh my gosh this is nice! And, they were right everything was just superb about this location and everything about the facility! Communication was prompt and thorough. If we go back to Kauai, we will definitely stay there again! We love how close it was to Poipu Beach and restaurants there as well

Mahalo George for your five-star review and comments. Glad to hear that everyone enjoyed their time at Nihi Kai #202. We hope you come back to Kauai because we look forward to hosting your ohana again soon.

Top vacation location

Very nice vacation "home" to yourself with 2 story design, i.e. open kitchen/living on top (great balcony overlooking pool and ocean) and bedrooms/bathrooms on ground floor. If not clear from description: the unit has no air conditioning. But there are plenty of fans plus the house is designed such that open screens go in all directions, so you can profit from natural airflow throughout the day. Grounds are very nice and resort-like. Large common (but gated) pool, literally ten steps away from master bedroom terrace. Absolute highlight is the oceanfront: directly in front of balcony and pool, Brennekes beach just steps away, Poipu beach park 3 minutes on foot. Poipu is nice as such and also very convenient for any activity on Kauai. Unless you are fixed on North Shore activities, everything seems to be not much farther away than a 30 min. car ride. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again.

Comfortable, lovely views from the lanai.

The condo was clean and comfortable. In the twin bed, bedroom, 1/2 of the closet was locked. Not enough room to hang all of our clothes.

Mahalo Sue for your five-star review. Glad to hear that you found the unit to be clean ad comfortable. Half of the closet is locked for the owner's personal items, but we will see if there is a way to make more space in the available closet. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Great location with epic view!!

Ocean and pool views are incredible, and the pool is just steps out the back door. Check-in and check-out was seamless, everything was clean and basic kitchen and laundry supplies were in place. It was an easy place to kick into vacation mode! 5 minute walk to Brennecke Beach - highly recommend starting your day with an early boogie board there (also provided!). Meals on the lanai were lovely. Bedrooms are small but who cares, you’re hardly in them. Showers were hard to operate but it didn’t affect our overall experience. Property is well-maintained and scenic. Kids loved it, we loved it, would definitely go back!

Mahalo Katy for your wonderful 5-star review and comments. It sounds like your ohana had an amazing trip to remember. We cannot wait to welcome you back again soon.

Great location

This condo is located perfectly for walking down to the beach and local stores. The pool is right outside the primary bedroom door. Also has all the necessary supplies to make it work like home. Could use some repairs - one of the sliding screens to the lenai needs to be replaced, it will not stay on the track. We just propped it closed and used the other screen to go in and out.

Mahalo Margaret. We appreciate your five-star review and comments. Glad to hear that this location was perfect for your family and that you enjoyed the beach and resort pool. We will be sure to have a look at the sliding door and make the necessary repairs. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha.

Awesome location

Awesome location, super close to the beach, could see the sea turtles come out of the water at night and the leopard seals during the day. The room got a little toasty but with all the windows open it was really nice in the house.

Mahalo Brayn for your five-star review and comments. We are glad to hear how much you enjoyed the view and watching the wildlife from the lanai. It sounds like the tradewinds really helped cool things off once you got the windows opened up. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again.

Great location, comfy condo

This was a fantastic location and the condo was roomy and comfortable, with a nice beachy vibe. I loved the mirrored wall that captured the view of the ocean and reflected it so it felt like a panoramic view of the ocean from every part of the living area. The bathrooms are super dated looking, but they were very clean and everything worked well (nice water pressure, etc). We loved having the slider right out to the sidewalk. Since I read about a million reviews and not a single one mentioned the sewer smell, I will assume this was an isolated incident the week we were there and that the unit isn't always downwind of the awful smell of raw sewage! Other than that, I would suggest a better equipped kitchen (we were always running out of forks and plates) which is an easy fix for the property owner. All of the screen doors and sliders need some work- the screens were totally off track, but when I messaged the office they got right back to us and "fixed" them while we were at the beach (we gave them permission to enter while we were not home). They didn't truly fix them- they need to be replaced, but they worked well enough for the rest of the stay. We stayed with another couple and loved the privacy of the two bedrooms on opposite sides of the condo. It would also work really well for a family of 4 to stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Mahalo Susie for your five star review and comments. It is great to hear how much you enjoyed the unit and the lovely ocean views. We are sorry the sewage smell you experienced. It is not very common and is typically handled right away by the association. We appreciate your feedback about kitchen and screens. We will take inventory and be sure to take care of any missing items or repairs. We look forward to hosting your next stay. Aloha!

Great Landing Spot for Exploring the Island

Two floor unit with nice views gave us space to spread out! Easy ground floor access to the pool and walkway to the beach - no complaints. Excellent property management on-site.

AGAIN

We love staying here.
Mahalo Sally for your 5-star review, comments, and most of all, your loyalty! We love hearing from our returning guests and we were so happy to have you back in Nihi Kai 202 for the third time! We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou.

Great location, comfortable & spacious place

I have nothing but good remarks for this villa. There are gorgeous ocean views, easy walk to the beach, park and pool. The villa is comfortably furnished and quite spacious, attention has been paid to detail. The manager on the property was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. This place is a gem on a gem of an island!

Nihi Kai 202 Comments and Suggestions

Another fabulous stay in a great place. It was nice to see the update with the new carpet. I agree with other comments in the visitor guest book about how great a high top table would be for the lanai so the fabulous view is not obstructed by the railing. Also would love to see a king bed in the master bedroom, as the queen does not fit two adults comfortably. I understand renovations are happening to the exterior of the building next year. I would like to suggest that if new signs are being put on the lanais, a comment about perhaps using “inside or quiet” voices on the lanai would be great. Some people talk so loudly out there that you can’t have your own conversation. Also, more NO DIVING signs would be in order for the pool as it seems the one sign is not being noticed by many.
Mahalo Carol for your comments. We will pass them on to the owner and the AOAO for consideration. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.

Needs Air Conditioning!!

This unit is located in a lovely resort with beautiful gardens and well maintained pool and Poipu is a great part of Kauai. Unfortunately the owners of this condo have not installed air conditioning and we were very uncomfortable as the Trade Winds were not active and humidity was unusually high. It was unbearable. This unit needs a lot of upgrades. The master bathroom is so old and unsightly and the fixture in the master bathroom shower was extremely hard to operate. The toilets must be original and creak so badly when you sit down because they are connected to the wall with a block underneath which we assume keeps the toilets from falling off. We had a list of other maintenance issues which we gave to the resort manager, like 3 slats missing in the blinds in master bedroom and toilets not flushing properly. The manager had the toilet issues resolved, to the best of their ability, and was very helpful! It’s a shame because the view from the balcony is nice but without a/c relief we would never stay in this condo again. Come on owners, upgrade your condo!
Aloha Gail, please note that we have several units as Nihi Kai with AC for your future stay. At this time, this particular owner has chosen not to add it. Also, the unit is rated a “Island Casual” which is clearly defined as “Unique rentals that provide value and comfort for your family. They meet Parrish Kauai’s minimum quality standards but are not recently updated.”. We offer plenty of other units that are upgraded for your next stay, including many that have AC as well. We are glad we were able to address the maintenance issues you had while you were here and we apologize for any inconvenience. Mahalo and a hui hou.

Nice location

Unit needs AC as it was extremely hot and humid. Toilet in the hall was extremely noisy.
Aloha Becky, I am happy to say that many owners at Nihi Kai have or are adding AC, so be sure to look for one of those next time. Thank you for the note on the bathroom, we will be sure to check it out to ensure all is well. Mahalo.

Perfect location, perfect place

Our family of four just returned from a lovely stay at this condo. We absolutely loved it and will definitely stay here again if we come back to Poipu. It is perfectly located, out of the hustle and bustle of the resorts further down the road but still right across from the ocean. The views are stunning and the cove right across the street nearly always had a group of sea turtles hanging out. The kitchen was well stocked (which was great for us as we cooked in most meals). The pool is right next door, visible from the lanai, and just the right size (smaller but perfect for families with younger kids like we have). The bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the hall each with a large bathroom making mornings and evenings really easy as we were not all on top of one another. Everything worked well and we loved having the washer and dryer. The living room furniture is really comfortable and each of us ended up sleeping at least one night up on the couch (since it has big sliding glass doors nearby it tended to be a nice cool space for sleeping). The only “complaint” I have is that we wished the table and chairs out on the lanai were taller (bar height). The view from the lanai is absolutely amazing but it was hard to see when sitting down to eat. You won’t go wrong booking this place. We are already thinking about booking it again!
Mahalo Cameron for your thoughtful review. We will pass the note about the lanai table and chairs to on to the owner as well. We hope to see you next year! A hui hou!

Wonderful view, we could hear the ocean every night!

We loved being able to walk to the beach and brenneckes, the view was amazing, and the property was beautiful. The inside was a bit outdated, pink carpet and blue bathroom, but was mostly clean. Would definitely stay again.

The view & location were wonderful

It was our first visit to this property. We were impressed with the view and really loved the location. The grounds were beautiful. The grounds keepers were friendly & helpful. Our main complaints were that the pool closed too early and the toilets sounded like they were going to fall off the wall.
Aloha Susan, So glad you enjoyed Nihi Kai Villas. It really is a great spot. We will pass on your kudos to the landscape crew…they work hard to keep it beautiful. The pool hours are standard (8am to 8pm) which is done for safety (no lighting) and even more so to help ensure a quiet time at the property. Sorry for any inconvenience. I guarantee nothing will fall off the wall, but they are old school and are being phased out as owners can. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

Great Vacation

We stayed at the Nihi Kai Villas and had great accommodations. Our condo was close to the water and park. It was very clean and quiet. My husband and I stayed there with our son and his friend and we had a wonderful time.
