Great place to stay!
The manager of this property promptly communicated with us to make sure we were fine before and during out stay. We were so happy to find so many useful information from their resources as the travelling restrictions keep changing these days due to covit19. The great managiment company we highly reccomend.
Mahalo Miki for the five-star review, comments and recommendation. We look forward to hosting you again.

Beautiful, spacious villa in a wonderful location!
???? Our family of four really liked this villa. It’s a beautiful, spacious condo, with living room, dining room and kitchen upstairs, a lanai overlooking the ocean and great views out the windows. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need. Downstairs are two bedrooms, each with a king bed and a bathroom, and a stackable washer/dryer. (If you need to sleep five or six people, there’s a trundle bed in the living room.) There is AC upstairs and downstairs. It’s in a great location! It’s about a 3 minute walk to Brennecke Beach, and a 5 minute walk to Poipu Beach, a great place for swimming, snorkeling, picnicking and relaxing. Nukumoi Surf Shop is right there, and they can rent you snorkeling gear, boogie boards, surf boards, etc. I recommend buying the reef walkers (or bringing water shoes), as there are underwater lava rocks in parts of the beach. There’s a fun deli by Poipu Beach where you can get sandwiches, shave ice, etc. There are beach chairs, an umbrella and boogie boards in the condo for guests to use. There’s also a pool and tennis courts on site. The staff was very helpful in telling us about sights and activities on Kauai, and helping us with whatever we needed.

Review of our condo experience
To summarize: cheap! On line photos very deceiving… carpets were college dorm quality…. worn out cabinets, some really inexpensive lamps, drab plates, cups. Web site did not mention our deck was right next to a busy street…. 1 lamp was broken…. for what we paid per night we were really disappointed
Aloha Ronald, we are sorry to see your review, especially after your wife stated she loved the unit when she dropped off the keys. I see you called on a lamp being out, of which it was quickly repaired that day. I assure you the carpets are not “dorm quality” and sorry you did not like the dishes. On the location of the unit, we provide resort maps as well as Google Maps to ensure it is clear. We apologize for any confusion.
DEBBIE M. says
Only a couple suggestions…better indoor lighting and more cleaning supplies in kitchen. Grounds are lovely, and great location. Def would return.
Mahalo Debbie for the 5-stars and comments. We will pass your suggestions along to the team. Aloha and a hui hou!

Fantastic launching point to explore Kauai!
We booked this unit for 3 generations of family members – my wife, my parents, plus our infant son. It was the perfect size to accommodate two sets of adults, with two very comfortable bedrooms set a good distance apart, two full bathrooms (my mom made specific note that the shower was the best she’s ever experienced), and a very well furnished main floor with good outdoor sitting areas. One faces north and gives good views of the lush courtyard, and one faces a quiet road with views of the ocean and sunsets (in January — no guarantees other times of year). We spent all of our time on the deck facing the ocean — no regrets there. The kitchen has everything you need to cook wonderful meals, and groceries are available in Old Koloa Town about a fifteen minute drive inland. There are great beaches a short walk away, plus two very nice walking paths, one inland between Brennecke’s Beach and Shipwreck Beach, and one along the ocean bluffs (not strollerable). We all felt that this unit’s location was just about perfect for our bi-daily drives to various parts of the island (the canyon is an hour’s drive west, Hanalei is an hour’s drive east), and our recovery days in between allowed us to explore the local attractions like Old Koloa Town, and the Botanical Gardens and blowhole ten minutes’s drive west. In short, we had a great time here, would totally return, and would recommend this unit, location, island, and experience in general to anyone who asks.
Location, house, activities in the area are all perfect!
We would stay here again.
Beautiful location with well kept grounds.
Handrail between levels in multi level units would be appreciated.
Mahalo Gary for your 5-star review. We will pass on your comment to the owner regarding the stairs. Hope to see you again soon. Aloha.
Location Location Location!
This condo is within walking distance to beach. From the pool, you could see the beach. Hot tub was not working. Condo interior is good. I didn’t realize until I got there that condo has an upstairs and downstairs ( where the bedrooms were) The bathrooms are on lower level so you need to be okay with doing steps. Nice furniture, comfortable beds, great deck – didn’t notice much car traffic to my surprise as deck overlooked the road. The person at front desk was extra helpful and had super nice demeanor. I would stay here again!
Aloha Kathy…Mahalo for your 5-star review and comments. FYI, there is no hot tub at Nihi Kai, the smaller pool is a “kiddie pool”. On the stairs, we try to list upper level and lower level to describe the layout. Sorry for any confusion. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you again. A hui hou!
The location is perfectly located down the street from the beach, with a peekaboo view.
Loved the location and all the amenities provided with this unit. Although there isn’t central a.c., there are many ceiling fans, and portable units in the bedrooms. The only negative for us sleeping in the bedroom by the stairs, was the plastic mattress cover, that made noise every time you move. I finally had to sleep on top of the covers to lessen the noise. The neighbor also starts a diesel pickup every morning around 6:30. Other than that, it was a great vacation.
Mahalo Elaine for your review and comments. The good news the owner is installing AC for the entire unit next week. YAY! We will check the mattress protectors, they are not supposed to be noisy. Our apologizes. Now with AC, you will be able to sleep with the windows closed and it will buffer the outside noise. On the positive side, the neighbor is the Fire Chief, so it is a good neighbor to have. Aloha and we look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou!
UPDATE: Air Conditioning Added in May 2018
New split system air conditioning throughout entire unit.
Shannon M. says
Great Kauai location for couples or family
We vacationed with another couple & the condo was set up perfectly for that with two bedrooms each with en suite baths. Perfect amount of room for four. The king size beds were not very luxurious but not overly uncomfortable either (hence the 4 stars). We loved the location & were happy with the beach chairs, ice chest & boogie boards available for our use. Thank you Nihi Kai & Parrish.
Mahalo Shannon for your review and comments. I do want to let you know the owner put plush new beds in December 2018 so we can earn 5-stars on you next stay. A hui hou.

A beautiful view and great location, except for the traffic noise.
???? The unit itself is quite lovely and had a great view of the ocean from the Lanai. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. The pool is great and the proximity to the beach and Poipu park was really great!
???? Unfortunately there was way more traffic out front than we thought there would be and because of a big construction development up the road there were many large trucks going past which were sometimes so loud that we couldn’t hear each other talk on the lanai. It made it a less restful experience than it could have been.
Nihi Kai Villa #300
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Nihi Kai Villa #300 for several days in July. Our experience from the time of making our reservation with the Parrish Collection until the (sad) time of our departure was exceptional.
The villa is in a wonderful, central yet quiet, location along the ocean at Poipu Beach. The lush floral grounds are meticulously maintained and are lovely. It was such a treat to awake each morning to the sweet sounds of little tropical birds singing to one another in the surrounding trees which envelope the villa. We enjoyed a swim each evening in the refershing pool after a day of exploring, hiking and snorkeling.
The villa is spacious with high ceilings and is beautifully decorated with artful hawaiian and asian furniture, which were both attractive and commfortable. The upstair balcony has a great view of the ocean and is a perfect spot for dining, reading or just enjoying the lovely view. The various ceiling fans throughout the villa kept the temperature perfect, even in July.
The kitchen is well appointed and has every piece of equipment and utensil neccesary for making fine meals and beverages. We were pleasntly suprised to find a frosty pitcher of fantastic, ready made, Mai Tai greeting us when we first opened the refrigerator. We savored the treat each evening of our stay. Yum! An additonal surprise was found in the freezer…Mai Tai sorbet! My husband and I engaged in a quick contest over the savory concocture! Both Mai Tai items were made from a recipe created by JP, President of the Parrish Collection.
We loved our stay at the villa and naturally were sad to depart. We look forward to returning again to further enjoy and explore the area.
Mahalo for the wonderful villa and experience!
#300 just okay
We returned to Poipu for the 5th time in 10 years. We stayed at Nihi Kai villas for the 1st time. it was very clean and well stocked with the basic dishes, pots and pans and basic toiletries. We enjoyed the location, easy to walk to the shore and even the beach if we weren’t taking much with us. The pool is nice, heated, nice chairs and umbrellas. A little small for the number of rentals and it was crowded in the afternoons. Cons: bedding was very worn, quilts very stained and lots of holes. Pillows flat. Furniture was also lacking comfort and needs cushions replaced. Odd that there aren’t any TVs in the bedrooms. We stayed the end of February and the breeze was not enough most nights. There were fans but we bought another and left it in the unit. The unit doesn’t have quite as good of views from the lanai as you only see obstructed views of the water but it was less than 5 minutes to walk to the rocky shoreline where we could see turtles, dolphins, whales and even a baby seal one day. Went with another couple and there was decent privacy.
This is the real Hawaii...
We were part of a large family group staying at this condo complex and had a wonderful time. Location was great; across the street from Brennecke beach, short walk to Poipu Beach Park, longer walk to Poipu Shops. Very quiet down at this end of Poipu and it was nice to wake up to the sound of the waves on the beach. Rooms were a little dated, but comfortable and had beach chairs and umbrella provided. Nice pool area and easy parking. Many of the other guests were repeats from several years, so they have loyal customers. Helpful and courteous manager. This is what I mean when I talk about recharging my batteries in Kauai!
We very much enjoyed staying the week in NiHi Kai Villas Unit 300 in Kauai. Location was ideal & convenient. Loved watching the sea turtles enjoy the surf at Brennecke’s Beach. The only criticisms: poor lighting for reading, occasionally noisy neighbors next door.
Beautiful unit, best location, favorite island
Well decorated and comfortable unit in an excellent location walking distance to Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Our favorite complex to stay in on our favorite island.
Nice large space, but outdated.
Good clean living space, but outdated rug, bathrooms and decore. Could only get internet to work via plugging computer in, no Wireless as advertised.
Aloha, Mahalo for choosing Parrish Kauai and for taking the time to write about your experience. I apologize that the Wi-Fi was not working properly and that the issue was not resolved during your stay. Our records show that when our staff did speak with you, you stated Wi-Fi was not working, however you were fine with the ethernet cable connection. We certainly would have reset the router and resoled the issue while you were here had you requested it. Please note, we have since corrected the issue with the router. We understand the value and convenience of Wi-Fi and offer it as a standard in just about all of our properties. In the future, please let us know anything that is needed to ensure a comfortable stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Mahalo, The Parrish Collection Kauai
Best vacation ever!
My daughter and I had an amazing first trip to Hawaii. I celebrated my 50th birthday there and the Nihi Kai Villa made our stay even more enjoyable and comfortable. It was clean and spacious and in a great location. I hope to come back and stay there again.
Another beautiful day in paradise
Ocean view was a bit obstructed by other condos which were not depicted on the website plan.
Very nice condo with a great location and facilities
We have stayed at Nihi Kai several times and love the location and ammenities the property offers. The condo we stayed in this year was very nice.
Seattle WA says
Nihi Kai 300
The condo was very nicely furnished and decorated. Its location was great, a few minutes walk from Poipu beach. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. The condo had a few minor maintenance items, i.e. burned out light bulbs and patio door locks that didn’t work. Our biggest complaint was that the condo was adjacent to a private residence. Every morning at 6 am we were woken up by the neighbor’s diesel truck. I would definitely stay in Nihi Kai Villas again but not in Unit 300.
British Columbia says
Nihi Kai 300
Unit 300 was large and roomy. Our biggest issue were the bathrooms. This is considered a premier accomodation but the bathrooms have not been renovated, which I would expect of a top of the line unit. The other Premier accomodations I have seen were much new and cleaner. Also, although the kitchen has new appliances, it lacked cupboard space and wasn’t exactly user-friendly. That said, we enjoyed our stay and would love to stay in this unit again if the renos are done.
The Great Get Away
I only live 12 miles away but it felt like I was on another island having a real vacation. My 2 brothers where in town with there boys and we needed a place for all of us. It couldn’t have been a nicer than this. Parrish Collection guys are probly the most professional company I have worked with in a long time. I don’t like to waste my vacation time dealing with BS. The place is 1st class and clean. All the small touches where amazing. I’ll be back! Dave Vickers
great location, clean, well maintained. villa had a lovely island ambiance. bathes and kitchen a bit dated, the lanai views/sunset were wonderful. great proximity to ocean. we would stay there again. excellent value.
This was our third trip to Kuaui but the first for our daughter and new son-in-law. Previously we had stayed in some very nice hotels and thought a condo would be a good choice this time. This one was nice enough but the living area did not have enough light to even read a book by. There wasn’t any A/C and not enough ceiling fans in the top of the house. We did use the fans in the bedrooms but it was still rather warm. It needs to be mentioned that the neighbor that butts up to one of the bedrooms starts his diesel pick up about 6:00 EVERY morning. You could not sleep in if you wanted to.
Seattle area says
This is the second time we’ve stayed at this property. The unit and the property are lovely. The unit is very clean, equipped with everything you need and located in a condo complex that is well taken care of. The surrounding gardens and proximity to the south part of the island is perfect. We can’t wait to return!
We had a wonderful time in Poipu Beach. Everything was perfect! The unit was clean and had all the amenities we needed. It also came with beach chairs, ice chest, mats, boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc. The unit was furbished nicely and was very cozy. Only one draw back. This end unit is located next to a privately owned home which at times was noisy. Every morning at 6:30am he would fire up his diesel truck to go to work. It’s not fun having to wake up this early when your on vacation.
