Aurora, Stanford, CA says
Location close to the beach and a short walk into town. Pretty quiet while we were there, there was some construction on the building next to us (which we were warned about) but the noise was really reasonable and didn’t bother us. There was a pool and some other amenities we didn’t take advantage of, but we were really there for the beach. Parking was free and it was easy to get a space. Had a pretty good stay! I will say it was pretty expensive in the end. The fees really add up. I think if we had been 2 couples instead of 2 single people this would be much more reasonable, but if I was coming back without more folks I might opt for a simple hotel room.
Mahalo Aurora for your review and comment. We are so happy that you had a nice stay. The beaches on Kauai are amazing and we are glad you go to enjoy them to the fullest. We have properties to suit any budget and we are always happy to help you find the perfect one for your next stay. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha.

The space was very nice and private.
The property was beautiful and incredibly well maintained
Mahalo Jarod for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that you loved the unit and the grounds at Nihi Kai. We cannot wait to host you again soon.
UPDATE: Air Conditioning Added in July 2019
New split system air conditioning throughout entire unit.
Grounds were beautifully maintained. Unit 703 was great. Only drawback was the beds….could use an upgrade. Nihi Kai is a great location! Will be back next year.
Mahalo and we look forward to seeing you next year. A hui hou!

Our group of friends absolutely loved our trip to Kauai and our stay in this unit. The location in Poipu was great, short walk to Poipu beach and Brenneke’s for drinks, short drive to Shipwreck beach. We used the community grills a couple nights which was great. The unit does not have A/C, but with the ceiling fans as well as the assorted tower and standing fans, we were able to stay comfortable in the evenings, and really weren’t in the unit much during the day. Definitely will look at staying at the Nihi Kai Villas in the future!
Mahalo Nathan for you 5-star review and comments. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.
Awesome location right near the beach! The condo was nicely maintained with beautiful grounds. They provided lots of amenities in the condo, including everything for the beach. Coolers, beach chairs, the works! Will return again in the future!

After 3 unit changes we were placed in a nice unit on the upper floor with excellent views. However, we were there in early august for 8 nights and with no a/c the place was unbearable from 2-8pm. Even with window and blind management the sea breeze was not enough. Temps were 91-92 in the living room and master by 7pm. Management was excellent and the place was in good shape. We enjoyed the island!
Aloha Cindy, Mahalo for your review. I assume you stayed with party that was in the unit in August as there was only one. His reservation was booked at the very last minute (just days before arrival) and according to our records, I do not see him staying with us elsewhere, nor do I see any moves. You must have stayed elsewhere. In any event, we were just happy that we were able to find your some space given it was high season. This particular unit does not have AC, but we do have many options with AC, so if that is a requirement, please let us know and we will point out the best options for you stay. Mahalo again and a hui hou.
Nice Gardens and Good Location
My wife and I recently shared Unit 703 with our friends for the second year in a row. Last year we decided not to reveal the condo #, for fear of losing it due to competition. This year we are revealing the number because the place is too nice to keep it a secret, and we do not want to be selfish about it.
We really like the view from the lanai, and the unit is in good shape. The kitchen is well stocked with just about anything that could be needed.
There was a time when a neighbor yelled at us -,warning us to not talk on the phone on the lanai. I guess there is a rule against that, and we too appreciate quiet and privacy.
We all agreed that the location, condition, and amenities are first rate. We hope to stay there often during future visits to the beautiful Garden Isle.
Perfect vacation in paradise.
Nihi Kai is in the best location, on the most beautiful island in the world. It was convenient to everything anyone could want. Beautiful beaches, restaurants, walking paths, and lots of sun shine.
advertised as premium ocean view (pov)…only if you stood on the lanai table. Twin bed in second bedroom was not clean. Bedding smelled of urine. The washer was rusted and also smelled. The door s/b left open to dry it out. Dishes in the cabinet were dirty, needed to be washed and salt and pepper shakers also needed to be cleaned.
Aloha, I want to clarify that this unit is not advertised as a “premium ocean view”. It is clearly advertised as a “Ocean View”. As you can see from the photos, this unit has a nice view of the Poipu Coastline and it is not necessary to “stand on the lanai table”. In addition, the “Premium” is a rating of the quality of the interior and as this unit has been totally remodeled and updated, applicable. In regards to your issues with the beds in the second bedroom…all the beds in the unit has been recently replaced and are all brand new, so I am not sure how this would have been possible. In addition, all our units are professionally and thoroughly cleaned prior to guests arrivals. In the end, if there was any issue with anything during your stay with the unit, we wish you would have told us when we called you two times during your stay as we would have immediately rectified the situation. Maybe housekeeping missed these items during their work in the unit and we apologize. However both times we spoke, you reported all was great with the unit.

Great times at Poipu
Nihi Kai Viilas was an fantastic experience for out family. Located within walking distance to Poipu Park and Baby Beach with great snorkling and boogie boarding was so wonderful. Very quiet and clean. The condo was well equipped for cooking, laundry, showering, beach towels, small cooler, boogie boards, and beach chairs. The beds were very comfortable and the living room furniture was adequate. They have plenty of parking and guest services are can get you set up with any extra adventures you may want to take the family on. Overall we would recommend a stay at the Nihi Kai Villas to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, pleasant vacation experience.
Our Kauai Paradise
Nihi Kai never disappoints. This is by far the nicest condo that we have stayed in on the propery with it’s beautifully done remodel and fabulous view. The condo was clean, well equipped and we were able to cook many gourmet meals during our stay. The master bath with the twin shower heads was luxurious and the twin beds for the kids made them feel like they were in their own suite! Our only “complaint” was that the patio tiles outside of the master BR were lose and dangerous to walk on. Othersise, beautiful condo, beautiful people, beautiful stay.
Its Kauai all one needs to know
Beautiful apartment. I would prefer one closer to the beach next time.
Nihi Kai villa 703
What can I say I would be there right now if I could. The kitchen had all that I needed and more to cook for my family, plenty of towels,linens,pillows.The distance to the ocean was great just a 5 min slow walk to the ocean saw countless sea turtles and even a monk seal just in front of the complex. The grounds were impeccable so many palm trees and flowers. That was the only problem the mowing and constant work, I guess that’s the price you pay for beauty. Like I said would go back in a heartbeat. No doubt a great decision to stay there

My nephew and his wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nihi Kai Villas #703 in June. I stayed there two years ago with my Goddaughter also. Really love the location, the view, the quiet, the floral beauty. This time the lizards weren’t quite as numerous at the front door! The weather was beautiful, with a shower or two during our nearly five days there. I would certainly recommend this particular unit to anyone, since it is my understanding that it is very well equipped with every convenience and some extras, outshining some of the other units.It is clean and well furnished, a place to really vacation! Thanks to the staff and the owners for providing and maintaining the best unit. I would certainly return again. J. Cole
