Dacia, Baltimore, MD says
Very spacious condo with great views of the ocean from the balcony. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach and we got to see a bunch of sea turtles resting on the beach one evening. Owners were very clear up front about some construction in a neighboring building that would be going on during our visit which was appreciated. But we didn’t experience any issues with noise at all.
Mahalo Dacia for your 5-star review and comments. It sounds you had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the location. We look cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha.
Diane, Amherst, MA says
Parrish was a great location a short walking distance to Poipu Beach. It is a good location in between getting to the north shore and over to Waimea Canyon. We had a view of sunsets each night from our deck. The place was clean and roomy with everything we needed. We ate out at great restaurants and had local take out enjoyed on our deck. Diane and John
Mahalo Diane for your 5-star review and comments. We are happy that you found the unit to be clean and comfortable. Glad you had a great stay and enjoyed those stunning sunsets. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha.
Dawn, Wildwood, MO says
We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful view and sunsets. The condo is in a great location with a restaurant / bar in walking distance and beaches close by. The kitchen was stocked well including a coffee pot/ filters, toaster, blender, and all utensils and pans you would need. There were also beach chairs, beach towels and a washer / dryer in the unit. Would definitely book again.
Alex, Berkeley, CA says

Justin, Anchorage, AK says
This was an awesome location to stay in Kauai, easy to get to each part of the island. I definitely would stay again.
Mahalo Justin for your 5-star review and comments. We look forward to hosting you again! Aloha and a hui hou!
Anthony, Woodinville, WA says
We had a lovely stay in the condo, the host was warm and communicative and we had no complaints! You’re a quick walk to the beach as well as a slightly longer walk to dining, coffee, or shopping. Perhaps best of all was the lovely sunset view from the Lanai, the unit sits up a little bit on a hill and we got a gorgeous show each night.
Mahalo Anthony for your 5-star review and comments! We love hearing that you enjoyed the unit, view, and location. We are glad to hear that our team was able to help you feel at home during your stay. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!
Jesica, Durham, NC says
I highly recommend this villa. The location was fantastic, within a short walk to Poipu Beach and reasonable drives to Waimea Canyon and other island attractions. The grounds are beautifully kept and landscaped, the condo is spacious and clean, but the best amenity of all is the lanai. It is spacious for 2 people and provides a fantastic view. I also commend the kitchen amenities. So many AirBnB properties skimp on the kitchen ware, but this rental ticked off two boxes that are close to my heart: a kitchen knife that is actually sharp and pans that don’t stick. While my friend and I did not require any assistance during our stay, the property managers were very communicative and checked in regularly to ensure we didn’t have any questions or needs. If I’m lucky enough to return to Kauai, I would absolutely stay here again.
Mahalo Jesica for your 5-star review and comments. We are happy to hear that you loved the unit and found everything you needed to make your stay amazing. We hope that we are lucky enough to host you again soon! Aloha and a hui hou.

Location and comfort.

The location, grounds and all onsite staff from Parrish and Nihi Kai.
On each visit we look forward to seeing all the staff as they are genuinely wonderful people and make our stay a pleasure. From Parrish, Kevin is there when you need him and always greets you when you see him. Cynthia who is always a pleasure to deal with. The Nihi Kai grounds keepers are fantastic…including Tim, Ricky and Marvin. They make our stay at Nihi Kai a great experience. Please pass our thanks to them as well as Nihi Kai management.
Mahalo Grant for your 5-star review, comments and continued loyalty. We will pass on all the kind words and look forward to hosting you next year.

Great, super easy booking through Southwest Booking.com! Thought I booked one with air but honestly it worked out just fine! Great place! Would probably do a resort with air, but would still stay !
Mahalo Jeff & Morgan for your review and comments. We are glad that you found the booking process easy. While A/C is not a standard amenity in Hawaii, we have many air-conditioned properties at Nihi Kai and on the south shore! Call us directly when you’re planning your next trip and we can help you find the perfect unit for your stay! We are looking forward to hosting you again soon! Aloha and a hui hou!
Janet, (ca) says
???? Amazing view. Walking distance to favourite beach.
Philippe , (US) says
Great location, but this unit is really only for 2 people.
???? We traveled to Poipu 8 years ago and loved the residence so much that we made a point to go back to Nihi Kai villas. Location is fantastic: a short walk to Brenecke beach to have fun in the wave and poipu beach for snorkling in quiet waters or to surf on the next beach.
???? This specific apartment should not be advertised for 4 people: the sofa bed in the living room was a disaster; after a week-end without sleeping and getting horrible back pain (a very thin foam mattress on top of metal bars), the management brought us 2 inflatable mattresses. In the end we were able to inflate only one the 2 after calling back to get a functioning pump. In short a basic inflatable mattress was better than the sofa bed; one night my daughter sleep directly on the floor, it was also better than the sofa bed! Also, keep in mind there is no AC.
Mahalo Philippe for your review and comments. We are glad to welcome you back to Poipu Beach and Nihi Kai. We will check out the sleeper sofa and see if we can do anything to improve and/or replace it. We apologize for the uncomfortable nights. Please know we have many two-bedrooms available for the future as sleeper sofas are not always the best sleeping arrangements. We look forward to hosting you again. Aloha

Peaceful retreat with lovely view
Property is wonderful, quiet and landscaping is beautiful. Everything well tended, condo was spacious and comfortable, lovely view of waves! The property managers were so helpful and friendly! I’ll look forward to staying in the same condo next time.
Valerie R. says
Great location, very clean, well-appointed, and very nice view!
Everything was great about this rental! The only issue is that the afternoon sun bakes the apartment unless you have the lanai shades down all day and keep all the floor and ceiling fans going day and night. It might be time to consider putting in AC. Otherwise, it was really nice, clean, well-appointed apartment, and it was a pleasure to stay there. Thank you so much!
Mahalo Valerie for you review and comments. I am happy to say that they AOAO for Nihi Kai recently approved the addition of AC and many owners are adding it. Please check out listings and find those that have. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.
This place really smells. It has not been kept up. It may be the carpet holding mold but it was so bad my partner could not breath in the apartment. We had to call the management company and ask for other accommodations. They say they won’t return our costs for thIs dump but we could not stay. It was cleaned up but the underlying foundation of the decor of the unit has not been kept up.
Aloha Wendi. We are sorry you did not like the fact that the unit did not have AC. From your statements to us when here, I understand your partner has allergies and had we known ahead of time that AC was required, we could have provided you with options with AC. Also please know that had you stayed long enough and opened up the unit, it would have cooled down and aired out. We do keep units closed for security prior to guests checking in. Also, please know the carpets are cleaned regularly and do not contain mold. May I also suggest you pick a Premier or Premier Plus unit as well. Those by definition are upgraded and/or new and thus might meet your expectations. Aloha.
???? Die Ausstattung war perfekt. Es fehlte an nichts. Die Lage war sehr gut und der Balkon und Blick war sehr schön. Eine sehr gepflegte Appartment und eine tolle Gesamtanlage. Immer wieder!!!
Arlene P. says
A wonderful holiday
The resort is lovely and well cared for. Location with walking access to beach and park is excellent. The unit is ideal with an expansive view including ocean and mountains. Well equipped, comfortable and clean.
Larry , (US) says
Comfy condo with nice big lanai and great views. Third and best condo we have rented on Poipu.
???? Roomy, great bed

Lisa , (US) says
I would totally recommend this property and will hopefully stay again!
???? The view is great! The location amazing! The bed super comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed too! I also really enjoyed the pool and the proximity to the ocean roar. Thank-you!
???? No air conditioning – it was super hot! Fans were good but maybe not enough?
Clean and Comfortable. Would Stay Here Again.
We stayed several days and had a great time. Most of our time was spent outside, but the location is convenient, and the accommodations are clean and comfortable.
Claire J. says
Excellent property. We would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend to friends.
The Nihi Kai Villas are in an excellent location, yet private. It is near the beach, surf shop for renting gear, and a great restaurant. It is also near other shopping areas if you have a car. We found our unit clean and ready for us when we arrived. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Any questions were quickly addressed. As a side note, we arrived late at night and had some difficulty finding the office and our unit. I believe they did provide a map of the complex with my reservation but I did not have it with me. Take your map. Just a suggestion and word of warning to anyone who expects to arrive after the office closes at 5pm.
Mahalo Claire for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed Nihi Kai and would come back. We look forward to hosting you. We will look into making the lighting better, thank you for the suggestion. Please note, although the office is closed, we have people around and on call 24-7, so never hesitate to call us. Mahalo and A hui hou !
Best value in Kauai.
We love staying at Nihi Kai Villas. This was our fourth stay there. You can’t beat the location, as it is situated perfectly for exploring all of the different locations of the island. The room itself is the perfect size with the kitchen and appliances, cookware, cooler, beach chairs, etc.
A great vacation getaway
Our condo was very comfortable, spacious, quiet and homey in a great location with everything we needed.
Mayne Island says
Returning to nihi kai
This was our fourth visit (over 10 years); we stayed for 16 nights. The unit is looking its age, especially the bathroom – new fittings/curtain etc. but the fixtures were still the same – very poor shower facility which is what most people use these days. Kitchen: cups/glasses//cutlery mismatched and cookware stained/burnt etc. very poor. I did complain about the burnt fry-pan that was unusable. Grounds are far too manicured – fond memories of how it was on our first visit, especially the bougainvillea around the lanai. Altogether, poor value for the amount of money we spent at what was low season. Probably will not be returning.

Great stay at Nihi Kai
My wife and I along with our 10 year old thouroghly enjoyed our 2 weeks in unit 807. The condo was great and the manicured grounds were a pleasure to see everyday. With close proximity to great beaches we never had a dull moment.
A perfect location and relaxing spot
The condo was immaculate and had a nice view of the ocean. The grounds are maintained perfectly, with lots of gardens and paths to walk through. I loved having evening cocktails on the lanai and the location was perfect for us first-time visitors to Kaua’i. It was easy to check-in, and everything we needed for our stay was there. The only issue was that it did get very hot in the late afternoon, but that is what the pool is for!
Well-furnished, pleasant accomodation in Poipu
This condo, though just a “garden view”, has a little peek of the ocean from the lanai. The furnishings and decorations are pleasing, and the kitchen is well equipped (though I didn’t find the microwave in the pantry for a couple of days), with plenty of tableware and cookware. Nihi Kai Villas are conveniently located near Poipu Beach park, and nearby restaurants and stores. This particular unit is one of the better ones in Building 5.
Home needs a LOT of work-we would not stay there again.
I did leave a review at the office but here are the points we were most concerned about: – we had to clean the sink drains and tub drain, lots of matted debris – the bathroom is filled with cracks, moldy trim,tile and hardware, scurvy tub door – porch furniture was uncomfortable _ beach chairs were AWFUL! Couldn’t get up out them, so low and unstable -many screens fell out over the week – the front door lock sticks, had to get someone to help us open it one night – carpeting in the front room needs to be replaced. Overall, we love the location and had had such a wonderful stay in 2008. We are returning to Kauai next January but are worried about going back to Nihi Kai. Thank you.
The back windows need shades. From about 3 to 6 it is too hot to be in the unit. Parrish employees were very helpful and attentive. The condo had everything we needed and it was clean. It did have some cosmetic things that needed to be redone, like paint, bathroom sink etc. Location was great, close to everything, very nice view and very nice pool.
Paradise at the Nihi Kai Villas at Poipu
I was there from July 25 to August 4th in unit 807 of the Nihi Kai Villas and the stay there made it memorable for our 25th anniversary. The view from our lanai for those sunsets were spectacular. I call it partial ocean view, but good enough to dream. The accomodations themselves were great. Just the toilet a little outdated but no big deal. i’d go back tomorrow and any other time. This one bedroom was perfect and can’t ask for more. This was truly paradise for the both of us. Poipu is where you want to be and this location is the best on the island of kauii. Thank-you to the team at The Parrish Collection for providing the best of environments for this special occassions. Thank-you pat for organizing our lauau at the Sheraton. Thinking of coming back.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location near wonderful beaches and walking trails. The unit we stayed in could use some minor repairs, but overall we would stay there again. The weather was always better than the rest of the island.
WE ENJOYED OUR STAY VERY MUCH. THE LOCATION WAS GREAT. WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO SO MUCH. WE WATCHED THE SEALS AND TURTLES PLAYING IN THE WATER AT THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY EACH DAY. WE STOCKED UP ON GROC AND DRINKS ON DAY 1, THEN DID SOME EXTREME RESTING AND RELAXING.
A roomy 1bd 1ba unit, fully equiped, everything you need to call it home away home.
Amherst NH says
Spending five nights at this accommodation was a very nice experience. The rooms were open, spacious, and nicely detailed and appointed. We particularly enjoyed the oversized lanai and chose to have dinner there every night and watch the sun through the palm trees as it set into the Pacific. We kept asking ourselves: “does it get any better than this?” We’ll be back. Thanks for the great memories.
It was just great. Good price for the quality, and very close to the beach. I was worried about taking “island casual” interior, but it was fine. Definitely glad I didn’t pay more for a better interior. Pool was just ok, but I guess that’s because you’re supposed to go to the beach. They had tennis rackets, snorkel gear and other beach accessories which was nice.
