One of the best locations in sunny Poipu Beach Kauai, Nihi Kai Villas Resort is just steps away from the Poipu shoreline and a little over 300 yards to world-famous body surfing Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach Park. The plantation style architecture at this small island oasis by the sea is surrounded by swaying palms, tropical flowers, fruit trees, orchids, and mature plumeria trees accented by well manicured lawns.

We had a very comfortable stay in this Airbnb. Our luggages were delayed in Oahu when we arrived at Kauai so were feeling quite stressed before checking into the flat but the moment we got our keys, all the stress disappeared! The view was amazing and the living room and beds (one master bedroom and a second bedroom with twin beds) were extremely comfortable. They also have body boards and beach chairs for you to use at the nearby beach (where we saw sea turtles everyday). Parking is readily available and the location was close to a walking trail along the coastline too. Would recommend for anyone staying in southern Kauai!

2021 Stay at Nihi Kai
The unit was nice. It is very well furnished, clean and comfortable. The view from the Lanai is great. Parrish Kauai does a very good job of communicating with their tenants.
Mahalo Hal for your 5-star review and comments. Glad to hear that you found the unit to be clean and comfortable. We are happy our team was able to help you feel at home. Mahalo

The three of us loved our stay in Nihi Kai Villas. The lanai (porch), the location, and all of the amenities were perfect. Walking in, the unit was air conditioned and a perfect welcome after a long flight. We enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets at the nearby beach just a short walk away. Unlike some of the other resorts around, the villas are larger and less densely packed with people. Highly recommend staying here!
Mahalo Kelda for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that you enjoyed the unit and its location. We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha!
UPDATE: Air Conditioning Added in February 2020
New split system air conditioning throughout entire unit.

The location, pool, easy access to the suite
Clean, updated decor, bed was current and comfortable. The lines, towels and sheets were up to date and good quality. the lights in the overhead microwave were burnt out. So the lighting over the stove was a lacking. Have the owners provide more kitchen acoutrements. Such as oil, spices, sugar, flour. Things to cook with. We have been to many VRBO’s where these things have been in the suite. A nice touch.
Mahalo James for the five-star review, comments and the heads up about the light on the microwave. We chose not to leave opened, used items from previous guests for health and safety reasons. We apologize for any inconvenience. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Nihi Kai. The location was great!
???? The villa was equipped with all the things we needed for coming and entertaining. Thank you.
We had a great time st theNihi mai villa, for the very convenient location close to the beach.
Watching sunset from the Lansi was amazing.
Great location close to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach
Great two bedroom condo a quick walk from Poipu Beach Park for snorkeling and Brennecke’s Beach for boogie boarding. Also a 10 minute walk to Shipwreck Beach. Condo is nice, not luxury but great for a family vacation with two full baths and king in the master with two twins in the second bedroom. It’s on the high point of the property so it has a great beach view. Nice lanai to watch the sunset over the ocean through the palm trees each night with a perfect view of the fireworks so you don’t have to brave the crowds at Poipu Beach park. About two miles from the Poipu shops and restaurants and a 5 minute drive to the Koloa Restaurants. Also central location between Waimea and the North Shore. After hours check in and out is easy.

Home had musty smell when first arrivedNo air
Unit had no air and bedrooms downstairs had a musty smell
Aloha Richard, We are sorry to see your review. Nihi Kai is an older property and was built in an era when AC was not a standard amenity. For security reasons, we leave the units mostly closed prior to arrival which in the summer can lead to a hot, stuffy unit. We apologize for the downside of that. However, most times of the year, once the unit is opened up the trades blow through and cool things down. In any event, you will be happy to note that many units at Nihi Kai now have AC throughout, so be sure to pick own of those or any of our other properties with AC on your next visit. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience. Mahalo.
Nihi Kai Villas
This was a great place to stay within close walking distance to the beach. The property was nice & great for a family of four. The only issue we had was with the dishwasher which really didn’t work at all well and we ended up washing our dishes by hand.
Mahalo for your review and comments. We will be sure to check the dishwasher to ensure it is in good working order. Mahalo for letting us know. Aloha.

This does not sleep 6.
We have stayed in the Poipu area numerous times. This unit is in a great location. You can see the sunsets from the lanai. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The parking is super convenient. There was 4 adults and 2 children in our party. The unit is advertised as sleeps 6, it does not. There are two bedrooms with adequate sleeping arrangements for 2 in each. The advertised futon in the living room does not exist. There are two sectional couches. My daughter and I slept on each. There wasn’t bedding available for us. Very uncomfortable. The unit did not have any ‘toys’ available for our kids. We have stayed in many other units in this area and had a plethora of boogie boards, snorkels, noodles etc. In this unit there was none. It seemed geared for adults rather than children. The carpet was in very poor condition and appeared dirty. We couldn’t get the tv or dvd player to work. There were only 4 beach towels supplied. We were a party of 6. We come to Hawaii twice a year. We would recommend the Nihi Kai Villas complex but unfortunately not this unit. Was a big disappointment.
Aloha Lisa. We agree Nihi Kai is a great location. We are sorry you did not find the two fold out futons, they were in the front hall closet. I do see that you did not respond to our aloha call nor our mahalo call and did not contact us during your stay. Had you responded or reached out, we could have assisted with all your issues. We will check the carpet, but know they are routinely cleaned every six months. Mahalo.

Very nice place at a beautiful location.
Clean and well-equipped. Nice all around accommodations. We would love to return!
Condo was Great! Ocean view was perfect – enjoyed sunsets every night. The entire complex is well taken care of. Location is fantastic; short walk to Brennecke’s Beach (awesome little beach) as well as Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beach – our favorite of the trip.

Unit 808: Clean, bright, spacious and comfortable!
My partner and I enjoyed a 12 day stay at Nihi Kai Villa 808. The place makes you feel right at home. It is a spacious 2 bedroom that is well stocked with any supplies you need for cooking and enjoying leisure time (books, music, DVD’s, Boogie Boards, etc.) We enjoyed many ocean view breakfasts and sunset dinners on the lanai. The bed was very very comfortable- I was able to catch up on lots of needed sleep!!
The grounds are well maintained with beautiful flowers, the pool is clean and has comfortable lounge chairs, there his a really nice gas barbecue by the tennis courts that we used many nights to cook up fresh fish, chicken, and Kauai beef steaks. We were walking distance from good food at Brennecke’s and just a short drive to the local markets.
I would highly recommend this unit.
Great for Family with Teens and Babies
TOTAL DISCLOSURE we stayed at Nihi Kai Unit 808 – so I will not speak of the room details. Both units sleep 6 and seem to have the same layout. As for the Parrish Collection as an agency and our experience overall I would give the Nihi Kai and the rental company high marks. The location is outstanding. You can walk to Brenneke’s Beach where the teens hung out every day and body boarded and swam and sunned. You can also walk to Baby Beach and Poipu Beach Bark where we went with the baby every day and she splashed and played and pretended to swim. You can also snorkle at two different locations at Poipu Beach Park, though it seemed the snorkling was better just a bit down the “street” at Lawai Beach. There is also a decent restaurant near by that you can eat in or do take away. Casa Di Amici. The best part of the Parrish Collection was Pat at the concierge desk who answered countless questions and seemed to know everything about the island. She was particularly helpful determining what the baby could do and what was best left to the Big Girls. We spent a lot of time on our balcony watching the sunset. Our unit 808 was in the building farthest back from the beach but also the highest up s the views were great. It was two stories.If I were a wealthy gal I’d stay in one of the houses right on Brenneke’s Beach – but I’m not. If you are, I’d ask the Parrish Collection about these places. It was unbelievably quiet and we saw very few other guests. If we went back to Kauai we would definitely stay in Poipu for the bulk of the time. We would definitely use the Parrish Collection agency again.
Ontario, Canada says
The condo was spacious and well equiped. It have everything we needed to make are trip comfortable and was in a great location. We travelled all over the island and Poipu is a central location that allows travelling to either end of the island an easy day trip. There are also great beaches and resturants close by for the lazy days we all deserve on vacation. We cannot wait to return
Nihi Kai 808--great experience
The condo was lovely and as described. Quiet, beautiful view, and nice, comfortable furnishings and beds. Well-equipped kitchen and lots of conveniences, like boogie boards for the kids and a cooler and tupperware for the beach. My only suggestion concerns arriving after-hours. The office was closed and we didn’t see the keybox next to the office door–we assumed the keybox was at the unit. Once we called the “emergency” number we got it sorted out, but the instructions could be clearer.
Great Location, Great Views
My family of 4 (2 kids 7 and 9) stayed at the villas for 8 days. The unit has everything that we needed. The views are absolutely amazing and location is great. The unit is clean, well maintained, has beautiful updated kitchen and plenty of space. The absence of air-conditioning did not bother us at all because we just opened windows and had a nice breeze all day/night.
we flew in from australia and had a wonderfull family time which we shared with friends who flew in from LA.
Nihi Kai Villas (unit 808) was wonderful! The condo met our needs in every way – including beach chairs, a cooler, boogie board, and books about Kaua’i. The walk from the condo to the ocean was beautiful (filled with a variety of flowers) and short. We enjoyed waking to the sound of birds and eating breakfast on the veranda that faces the ocean. Again, a wonderful place to stay, even with a toddler! We’d love to come back and will again ask for unit 808!
Our Family had an awesome time in Poipu Kauai, our rental was great, and equipped with all the trimmings. If you want a quiet, relaxing, close proximity to the beach and awesome weather go to poipu kauai, and stay at the Nihi kai villas unit 808. Our family loved it.
Great Kauai location
The condo was wonderful and were the grounds. Only one comment for future consideration. The internet in the unit did not work, but the wireless in a different unit did work and I was able to use that. In today’s world, guaranteed working internet is a necessity for many people and it is a factor in deciding on a rental property. Thanks, Tom
