One of the best VRBOs I’ve stayed in!

This place was beautiful - photos do not do it justice nor do they showcase how large the unit is! The bedrooms are downstairs and the living space upstairs was plenty for our group of 4. Wifi was good, the view was beautiful and kitchen was well stocked. Check in was smooth, communication was great from booking to check out, and everything was so comfortable and clean. we didn’t even hear the construction happening - highly recommend staying here!

Mahalo Dorothy for the 5-star review and comments and recommendation.  Much appreciated and we look forward to hosting you again soon.  A hui hou.

4th of July Spectacular

Came from Oahu for a weekend getaway. Our stay was one to remember. The villa was spacious, clean, well equipped, and everything was in working order. We made use of the swimming pool, tennis courts and even had a 4th of July BBQ at the Pavillion. We were right across the beach and just a short drive away from shops and restaurants. We definitely would stay here again. Mahalo!!

Worth every penny.Usually I save some money on where I stay but I’m so happy with my stay. Short 30 second walk to the beach with wonderful restaurants barely a walk away. If I come back I will absolutely stay here again. AC in every room in case you get to hot. A grill right outside. Plenty of space to park.
Mahalo Nolan for your 5-star review and comments. It is great to hear how much you enjoyed the unit and your time on Kauai. We are glad you got to enjoy the AC and the amenities at Nihi Kai. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha!

December 2019

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days early December in unit 505. The condo location was perfect, and overall the condo itself was nice. We arrived about 2pm, with checkin being 3p, however the condo was not available until almost 4pm due to late housekeeping. When we did get it the unit was very clean and greasy. After check in I left a message for the manager since according to the listing it had a safe, we never did find it now did we receive a message back. In Dec the weather is cool enough, but in the afternoon the living area and deck were unusable due to the heat. The bedrooms are actually on the ground floor(you go up a set of steps to the entrance and back down to the bedrooms). Due to the ground floor location, there was little to no airflow and the bedrooms were very warm even in the evenings. They did have multiple fans and we utilized all of them, and with the ceiling fans going by about midnight it would cool off enough to sleep. There was also multiple units under construction while we were there, given that it was Dec I’m sure it may be normal to do this durning slower times. Overall the construction didn’t start until 8am and most times ended by 6pm, but lots of clutter on the sidewalks and it made the front deck unusable due to noise durning the day. The kitchen was very well equipped, and they had small coolers and multiple beach items for use available durning the stay. We did use the beach chairs and they were in pretty good shape. The complex itself has a nice pool and the grounds were kept pretty well. Overall I think we would stay in the complex again, but probably not in this particular unit mainly due to the heat in the afternoon and evenings.
Mahalo JMBPDX for taking the time to review Nihi Kai 505. We apologize on the later check-in, the previous guests unexpectedly left late which pushed our cleaning crew back. For your next stay, please know that more than half of our Nihi Kai units now have AC, so we guide you to one of them. We understand it can be warmer with the afternoon sun and no trades. We show no message received about the safe (we apologize if we missed it) but there is a safe in the hall closet next to the washer and dryer. On the construction, we are sorry it disturbed your stay. Look forward to hosting you again. Aloha

Fabulous condo near beach

We loved staying in this condo with our family of six. It was beautifully clean upon arrival and met our every need. We loved the fact that it is within easy walking distance of Poipu Park and beach. The grounds are lovely and the pool just perfect for a post-ocean dip. We’d return to this unit again when next visiting Kauai. We absolutely loved it. Thankyou!
Mahalo Tim for the 5-star review and comments. You are very welcome and we love all the love. Look forward to seeing you again on Kauai. Aloha and a hui hou.

Family of 5 in Poipu

Great stay. Nice condo. Worked well for our family of 5 (parents plus three kids 17-21). Our 6’3” son slept on couch and said he was comfortable. Would highly recommend! Aloha

Great Stay

We really loved this unit and had a great week with the in-laws! The beaches are really close with lots of ocean life and great waves. The restaurants and shopping are really convenient (in case you lose a pair of sunglasses). The unit is very spacious and comfortable! We all really enjoyed the huge bathrooms! But the kitchen could use a restock as it seems every knife was broken ???? But highly recommend a stay here if you are going to Kaua’i.

Nice place

We would stay here again. Amenities were great, updated everything and very close to two beaches! Property is not far from the airport and there is plenty of shopping and food available close by. There is no air conditioning but this does not seem to be uncommon on the island? There were many fans available throughout the house. Beach chairs and sun umbrellas with some other beach things were available on the lanai which was extremely helpful. Tile throughout made sand cleanup fairly easy. I would recommend trimming back some of the foliage that is occluding the ocean view from the back lanai. Property was very helpful in requesting a later checkout time. Overall a nice stay for a family of 5.

A great place to stay in Poipu

This is a perfect location to have ease of access to the beach, several restaurants within easy walking distance (about a mile) and easy access by car to many other sites. Despite it’s ease of access, it is very quiet (except for the roosters). I would recommend earplugs for light sleepers. The unit was laid out well for privacy in the sleeping area, and good space for socializing in the living room and kitchen. We would stay here again if travelling to the area.

Handy to Brenneckes beach

We stayed here with our 3 teenagers. There was a queen bed in one room and 2 singles in the other. Nothing made up for my daughter but they had 2 fold out single mattresses and some extra bedding in the cupboards. Good kitchen amenities. No air con but lots of fans. Wifi and television channels got the teen approval. We used the pool area several times but the beaches a very short walk along the road. We walked along the beachfront and found a great spot for sunset watching.
Aloha Julia, Mahalo for your review and comments. Our apologizes the bedding was not made up for you in advance, however I see no request was made during the reservation process. Next time, please do note it when you book online or email us in advance and we can certainly make things ready for you and your guests.

Great condo! Best location! Nice remodel. Only downside was no A/C & it was very hot at night.

Great remodeled unit! Perfect size for our family of 4! Perfect beaches, best honu viewing & just enough places to walk to for meals & snacks! We love Poipu, have been 5 times now. First time in a condo & it was the best stay yet! Loved having laundry in the home, stocked kitchen & some beach chairs and umbrellas! The only thing we found uncomfortable was the hurricane weather. We were there during the actual “hurricane Lane”. So it was up to 88 by day & only down to 79 by night. 80% plus humidity. Not having A/C in the condo made the nights miserable for sleeping. Other than that we loved our little home for 9 nights!! We ended up leaving a day early. The owner understandably had us bring all of the outdoor furniture & beach supplies into the home in preparation for the storm. This made it a little cramped and so we decided to get a hotel room for the final night.
Mahalo Casey for the 5-star review and comments. Also, thanks for your help on prepping for Hurricane Lane. Best to be prepared. On the AC, please note I am happy to announce many of the Nihi Kai owners have or are putting in AC, so next time we have you covered. Aloha and a hui hou.

Wonderful vacation!!

Great two bedroom unit to stay at. Short walking distance to pool and beach. Unit had a great kitchen, large fridge, nice beds, plenty of fans as there is no a/c. It also had beach chairs and snorkel gear for use. Could not say enugh about this property. I would much rather stay here than at a resort.

Beautiful and well maintained property, friendly staff, lovely location.

We came to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. The experience was outstanding -- walking the trails along the coast, watching the turtles, monk seals,the birds -- and the sunsets!
Mahalo Karen and Happy Anniversary!

Beautiful accommodations! Inside and out!

We loved this unit at Nihi Kai. #505. Beautiful wood furnishings, lovely curated artwork, fantastic kitchen and clean bedrooms and bathrooms. I appreciated there were absolutely no bugs anywhere. That is tough to pull off in Hawaii but they succeed here at Nihi Kai. It’s location is wonderful because I like being in a neighborhood rather than in a large hotel setting. Walking distance to the beach and their pool was just “da best!” Mahalo Nui for a memorable stay on Kauai. We will be back.

Incredibly well stocked, gorgeous setting

This place met our every need. Cards for when the rain came, chairs, umbrellas and coolers for the beach. The location was great, we loved being just minutes on foot from the beach! The furnishings and finishes were beautiful and the view did not disappoint. We would absolutely come back to this specific spot.

Rainy Kauia

We have been coming to Hawaii off and on since 1982 and we have to say this was the worst weather trip ever. Thank God the unit was in excellent condition; a place where we had to spend a lot of inside time. Never swam in ocean and swam in the pool only once in our 4 week stay. Grounds are still in excellent condition. Our plans for future vacations unfortunately will be elsewhere because rental fees car and hotel plus airfare makes it to costly to visit again.

Beautiful property and lovely condo in Poipu.

We stayed in this lovely 2 bedroom condo with our two adult sons for two weeks. Very spacious and well equipped with toiletries and towels and beach chairs, umbrellas. All in good condition. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff are courteous and eager to please. The beach is a five minute stroll. Pool is nice but not here for the pool with a beautiful beach so close. BBQ’s were clean and maintained but only two so could get backed up. We just cooked earlier in the day. Overall I would rate this the best condo we have stayed in Poipu and have been coming for 15 years. Price is reasonable as well for a view property. Will return for sure.
Aloha Alita. Thank you for the 5-star review and comments. We could not ask for an better endorsement. Mahalo and we look forward to hosting you again.

It was a perfect location and nice condo. I would highly recommend!

???? Great location. Beautiful grounds. Kitchen was well stocked and had pretty much everything we needed. There were beach chairs, toys and some snorkel gear for our use. Pool area was great with nice lounge chairs. The beds were very comfy. 4 separate lanai areas which we enjoyed. We were able to pay a little extra to keep the condo until 6pm on our departure date as our flight was not until 10:30 pm that evening. I would stay again! ???? The screen doors could use a repair. They kept coming off the tracks. The pool bathrooms were a bit smelly. The office was difficult to find when we arrived in the dark. Parking spots were small but that was common all over the island.

Updated / Poipu condo

Nice, updated condo. No AC but extra fans in closet helped. Great location. Spa not heated at pool, but really not a problem since it was so warm outside anyway.

Relaxing & Restorative

The property is beautifully maintained and right next to the beach in Poipu! The location suited my family perfectly as we spent most of our time on the beach snorkeling, frolicking, and lying around. It would have been nice for my mother (she’s almost 70) to have had a bathroom upstairs, but we managed. She was eyeing the units in the front of the property because they were ground level and one story. Nice kitchen and bathrooms in our unit, with 2 lanais. We will return!

Beautiful Poi Pu Condo

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo in the Poi Pu beach area. Everything has been updated and is beautiful, including the patio and view. Be aware though that when description states there are 2 Futons, they mean 2 foam mats for the floor. We needed a 5th bed, so my 19yo, 5’11” son slept on the couch- he said it was very comfortable.

Perfect place to stay in Poipu

We stayed at the Nihi Kai villas in January 2014. We were there for a week. We felt right at home. The place has pretty much everything you need, including 4 separate balconies. The furniture etc is a little dated but didn’t impact our stay. It’s a 5 minute walk from the beach. Grounds are lush and a joy to walk through. Poipu area is wonderful, laid back and low key. Highly recommend the area and the villas!

Great!

We stayed here with our daughter and her husband so it was nice to have some room separation and privacy. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the BBQ area convienient. The dishwasher failed but was replace the next day! All the comforts of home and then some in a lovely spot within walking distance of great snorkling, sunsets and surf. Will definitely try to come again!

Love Poipu

The services we received was wonderful. We have been in other condos at the Nihi Kai that we liked better, preferrable the end unit on the second or third level. The delivery of the luggage on those floors can be a challenge. The kitchen could be better equipped and more fans would be welcomed. We also had some bugs in the unit. Our families (ourselves and our two daughters and their family, who also stay at the Nihi Kai) always have a wonderful vacation. We prefer the Nihi Kai because it is walking distance to the beaches and tennis courts. Waimea is my birth place so I have strong attachment to Kauai.

Lovely

Other than no air conditioning, and the carpet being a bit dingy, the place was wonderful. Excellent location, quiet, very well maintained. Enjoyed the tennis courts and pool, overall, had a great stay.

100% Wonderful

We spent a 100% relaxing, enjoyable and wonderful vacation week on Kauai. This seemed like the shortest week ever. We stayed in the Nihi Kai Villas Unit 505, Poipu, HI. The property and unit was exactly as advertised. The staff was wonderful. The extras were great; pool, tennis courts, BBQ area, parking, etc. The yards and gardens were immaculate, always cared for daily, basically not a leaf out of place. The Unit was well maintained, had everything we needed, including beach items. Poipu as well as all of Kauai, is an extremely friendly place. This is our second time to vacation in the Poipu area, which has everything we were looking for in a vacation. Easy access by car to all site seeing areas on Kauai, from the top of the island to the Western edge. Of all the Hawaiian Islands, I believe Kauai is the most restful, quiet, and laid back of all the islands. The “ONLY” issue was one week wasn’t enough. We will be back for a third vacation and also for our second stay with Parrish Properties. A+, number 1, Recommended.

Perfect for Families

We had a wonderful week at Nihi Kai Villas, Poipu. The accomodation was clean, comfortable and spacious. Standing on our balcony,we had unexpected ocean glimpses that allowed us to see whales swimming by. What a treat! Beautifiul daily rainbows and gentle ocean breezes added to our delight. Our two little boys loved the pool and being able to walk to the beach was fantastic. The extra boogie boards were very handy. It was peaceful and relaxing. The bird life was heavenly to listen to. The gardens were immaculately maintained by the friendliest gardeners on Earth. If I could afford to stay there forever I would!!! Best place I have ever travelled too. Will definitely be returning to Nihi Kai.

Close to the beaches and shopping.

We have stayed at this propert group on several occassions and have love it. The location is per5fect for everything a family or individual would like to do while in Kauai but this particular unit was less than what we had experenced at the Nihi Kia. Unit 505 was run down, we had a hard time opening the screens and it had not been maintained well. When asked to change units there was none to transfer too. Disappointing but we did have a lovely trip.
Aloha Vanessa, Thank you for your taking the time to provide a review of your stay at Nihi Kai 505. We agree that it is a great location. We apologize if there was confusion as to the quality of the interior when you selected the unit online. This particular property is rated an “Island Casual” which designates a property that has not been recently updated. May we suggest for your next stay a property from our “Premier” category which has all our upgraded units. In any event, we are glad it did not deter from your vacation and look forward to hosting you again soon. The Parrish Collection Kauai

Perfect for family with young children!

This was perfect for our family, we stayed here with a 20 month old, a 11 week old, mom, dad and Grandma. It was a relatively easy walk to the baby beach, (on the beach is nice but much more expensive) nice grass area right outside the unit for our toddler to play, the place was nice, and clean but not so fancy that we worried about our toddler messing it up. We ate all our meals out on the balcony. Our toddler loved the boogie board and kick board left in the closet along with a few other beach toys -- he liked the tiki kick board so much he insisted on hiking with it at the top of Waimea Canyon! A bit of advice -- don’t lug your baggage up the exterior stairs as there is a sliding glass door at ground level right into one of the bedrooms once you are in the unit.
