As advertised. Great location easy walk to the beach, food etc.
Beautiful, comfortable, quiet and with a nice view. Well stocked kitchen. Excellent location and parking is 10 ft away from the door. Highly recommend!
Tracy, Phoenix, AZ says
Great location! The view is the real deal! Not close enough to hear the waves but you can see them from the lanai. The beach is close but not really walking distance. 803 is very clean and has everything you need in the kitchen. There were beach chairs, ice chests, and an umbrella to use. The umbrella was broken, asked for a replacement on day 2 of our stay, never got one. The bed is comfortable, the closet is a nice size. We'd stay there again!
Mahalo Tracy for your five-star review and comments. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and found everything you needed while you were here. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha!

???? Nice apartment, excelent location for exploring the island.
Carter A. says
This us a really lovely unit and perfect for a couple. Very quiet and with the bedroom at the front.
Lovely unit and very comfortable and well appointed for a couple. Quiet location with little noise from the rear parking lot and garbage area. Would recommend a new beach umbrella and tightening the loose upper towel bar and shower handle. These are minor details. Loved the unit and would definitely return. Thanks for the comfortable stay. Mahal.
Mahalo for your 5-star review and comments! We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at Waikomo Stream Villas #803! Thank you for letting us know about the towel bar and shower handle. We will repair it right away. Glad to hear that you will be back because we are already looking forward to hosting you again soon! A hui hou!

Great condo and pool
If we come to Kauai again we will probably stay at Nihi Kai villas again. love it! When we talked to the office about a knife sharpener and replacing a bulb in our range hood it was taken care of within a day. Wow what great service!! The couch was uncomfortable if you were watching tv, the dining room chairs felt “hollow” and need foam replaced…so were uncomfortable. We loved the umbrella! thank you for the deck chairs. we used them everywhere. thanks for the cooler which we also used everywhere; loved the big bottles of shampoo and soap -- great environmental step! loved the AC; it was a great vacation at this property!
Mahalo Yvonne for the 5-star review and comments! We are delighted to hear that you really enjoyed Nihi Kai and all the amenities in your unit! I will be sure to ask the Property Manager to have a look at that sofa. We enjoyed having you and we look forward to hosting you again soon! Mahalo and a hui hou!
Dominique C. says
Beautiful condo with a view of the gardens and ocean from afar. Very quiet and family friendly.
Gardens beautiful you could here the oceans and birds in the evenings while watching the sunset on the balcony. Condo beautiful clean and spacious. Very nice pool, loved walking through the gardens to get to it. Great location quiet , could easily drive to attractions within 1:00 to 1:30 radious for day trips. Highly recommend ! Poipu beach lovely you can walk down to it or bring your beach gear with the car and park at the public parking 5 min from the condo. Thank you for your hospitality easy to self check in and check out which is much appreciated when flights are outside the office hours.
Mahalo Dominique for your 5-stars and comments. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.

???? Dirty and bugs
Mahalo Denise for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the location. We apologize for any unwanted visitors. The AOAO does have the property regularly treated for pests, but being in the tropics sometimes they can enter and we apologize for any inconvenience. Aloha.

This was the only open beach during our stay. Great surroundings.
Colleen , (US) says

Awesome Kauai south shore location
???? quiet, lovely setting, convenient to south shore activities. well-appointed full kitchen
???? bedroom did not get the cooling breezes, but the ceiling and floor fans helped
Gene , (US) says
???? Loved the views. Location was great and the place was quite comfortable. A broken screen door was quickly repaired by management… a big thanks to them.
???? No matter what we tried, the unit was too hot in the evenings to be comfortable indoors! The place needs air conditioning!!!
Perfect base from which to enjoy Kauai (Unit 803)
Just came back from a wonderful 5 night stay in 803 -- would highly recommend.
This unit was bigger than it looked in the pictures, and everything we needed (and more!) We could see the ocean from the lanai, but not very well and at quite a distance. Excellent and well-equipped kitchen, huge TV (and another in the bedroom), spacious bathroom, big closet. Staff were helpful in organizing a late checkout for us. We washed our towels in the unit (washer/dryer with detergent) as it was an extra cost to have them changed.
You can walk to Brennecke’s (basic food but nothing special) and Poipu Beach, but we drove to most other places. Lovely morning and sunset walks along the beach.
The wifi was free and the FASTEST ever in a hotel/condo!
Beautiful location & condo on well maintained grounds. Excellent experience throughout reservations, checkout, price, ect. The only conwas the unit would not cool down. As mentioned in other reviews, cross breeze was non-existent despite considerable effort to create. Stayed for the month of July. We turned ceiling & 3 portable fans on the moment we arrived and never turned them off.
Nevada City Ca says
Brand New remodel
Unit is remodeled and everything brand new from the carpet to the cabinets plumbing fixtures appliances and furniture including granite counter tops and lanai furniture
Tucson Arizona says
Nice location, once you find it. The signage is poor, being that you can only see it coming from one direction. Nice condo, without a can opener. Gnawing the top of the can of beans was a challenge. Minimal ocean view. Cons outweigh any pros. Condo pressure washing four hours during the middle of one day, with a very loud generator-heaing damage, anyone? Next day it was the slightly less noisy tree trimming, starting at 8:45am. Another con was the “dorm” lock key system. You must lock the door with your key, or else it doesn’t lock the condo. The safe did not work for about 2/3rds of our stay-weekend manager could not fix. Swimming pool was not available for the weekend, but we were notified of that before we got there. The condo we used, #803, had quite a few steps to navigate-so be sure to ask about steps when you rent. We would not stay here again.
“Aloha Bill & Sue, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Nihi Kai 803. We are sorry you had a hard time finding the property. Our directions provided at the airport have usually been pretty reliable, however it appears drove to the resort a different way. We will see how we can provide additional notes on the directions. In terms of the power washing and painting, we apologize. The Board of the property as well as Parrish Kauai takes great pride in keeping the property in top form and unfortunately that can require some noisy maintenance. We try to keep it to a minimum and only during normal business hours and we are very sorry it interfered with your stay. For you next stay, we will ensue that you are not put at a property that may be doing some regular maintenance. In regards to the locks, they were selected so you do not lock yourself out of the condo by accident. We are sorry you found it cumbersome. In any event, I see that you booked the unit directly online prior to all the upgrades at a significantly discounted rate. I hope the new upgrades in some way compensated you for the disruptions. Nihi Kai 803 is an awesome unit, however I understand not every unit is perfect for every guest. We have many more and next time, instead of picking a unit directly, I suggest you call us so we can guide you to a more appropriate unit. Again, thanks for staying with us and we’ll see you next time.”
Very convenient location, comfortable size for two adults
We stayed here to be close to my son’s family who stayed in another condo in the same complex. The only reason I would not stay in this particular condo is that it was too hot. Because of its one bedroom design it did not have the cross breezes that the other two bedroom condos had. Consequently it was very uncomfortable sleeping at night-too hot in spite of using the overhead fan and portable fan that was in our bedroom. Otherwise it is a nice property in a lovely development. View of ocean is minimal-better ocean views were had in my son’s condo nearby where we spent all of our time.
We value our privacy, quietness, comfort and though we were at the top unit of the complex…it’s exactly the separation we enjoyed. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. We needed the input / advice from Pat and others and it was always “spot on”. Thanks for making our stay such a memorable one!!
Very nice, relaxing, swimming, sunning, walking, eating in or ou
Unit 803 was just right for us. There were some practical issues that concerned us, but we addressed them in the written review we handed in. One in particular: the toilet had a huge, ancient (illegal, I believe) tank of water -- very, very wasteful. The TV console had not been dusted. Some days were too hot even with all fans going. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and to Brennecke’s. Also loved having the pool available.
Somerset ca says
Relaxing, beautiful and spacious
We had two families in our group, therefore stayed in two condos. We enjoyed both places, were pleased with all the extras that were included (soap, shampoo, paper towels, etc). I have to say, the teenagers played a lot of tennis, it was a hit! We also enjoyed the BBQ The location was perfect, we could walk to the beach plus we dined at the restaurant up the street…which we walked to. My only concern was that I reported a lost silver bracelet, and no one got back to me…

Convenient and relaxing
We enjoyed our stay. It was nice and quite. The place was very clean. the only thing that we would have preferred is for the carpeting to be cleaner. Otherwise it was a great experience.
Seattle WA area says
Wonderful view and convenient location
We found the condo to be the perfect size. Clean and comfortable. The view from the lanai was gorgeous.

Beautiful winter vacation paradice
We stayed in Nihi Kai Villas unit 803 for 3 weeks in March 2010, the service was great on arrival we had a small problem with one of the windows and were unable to connect to the internet, both were promptly fixed.The condo was well furnished and the kitchen had everything required, the location is at the end of the road and is extremely quiet. We liked the large lanai facing west toward the ocean and had a spectacular view of sunsets, also because it showers for a few minutes most every day we were able to view many rainbows some of them double. The only thing we did not like was the barbeques were not clean enough to use but that was a small thing and we would recomend Kauai and the Parrish Properties to anyone visiting Hawaii.
A relaxing place.
Nihi Kai villas are in a great location and unit 803 was well kept and provided us with lots of room to relax and a great location in Poipu. Ther service from the Parrish collection was excellent.
A Garden Paradise
We enjoyed two wonderful, relaxing weeks at Nihi Kai in April. The staff were very friendly and helpful and, at the same time, respected our privacy. Our condo was very comfortable and spacious and well-equipped with parking very close to our unit. The kitchen had all the appliances and kitchen supplies for our needs. A couple of things for future consideration are: bathroom upgrade and better knives in the kitchen. There was one minor repair required while we were there; it was attended to promptly and efficiently. We will definitely return for another vacation at Nihi Kai in the future.
Great place to stay
This unit had a great view and was really well appointed. I had a great time there and the proximity to the beach was very nice. The pool facilities were pretty lackadaisical but other than that the grounds were great.
We spent a week here on our anniversary Hawaiian trip and thoroughly enjoyed the condo and Kauai. We had a decent view of the ocean from our lanai and a short 5 min walk to the beach. We used the grill here many times and met many interesting people while grilling. So much to do on Kauai….we hope to come back some day and would stay here again. The grounds here are beautiful w/ flowering bushes; we used the beach chairs quite a bit.
Great location at Poipu.
The Nihi Kai Villas was an excellent place for a vacation stay. Being so close to Brennecke’s Beach was a huge plus. I was able to walk to the beach for body surfing whenever I wanted. Each morning we took walks by the beaches which afforded many beautiful sites. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the 1-bedroom condo and the front office people were nice and helpful with information.
Heaven on earth!
We spent four nights at Nihi Kai and could of stayed much longer. Our condo was amazing -- big and bright and super clean. We had all the amenities of home and in one of the most beautiful places on earth! It has a well equipped kitchen, huge lanai with a view that never ends. The property itself is well looked after with beautiful gardens. The pool was very clean. The staff were very good and it was quiet when we were there. The beach is good for children as well as snorkling. This is one of our favorite spots ever -- we will go back -- highly recommend.
This was an older, but decent place. It was perfect for us because we didn’t want to spend a ton of money. The location in Poipu was great because the beach was a short walk away. We didn’t like it that there wasn’t any air or fans. Even when we just wanted to relax and lay on the couch, we couldn’t because of the heat, but we were there in July so that may have been the problem. We ended up buying a fan the day before we were to leave and left it in the condo.
Aloha Jennifer, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. We agree that Nihi Kai is a great location and in particular as you noted, 803 provides a great value. We are sorry you had to purchase a fan while on island. Our onsite front desk would have provided one free of charge had you requested it. We look forward to welcoming you back to the islands sometime soon. The Parrish Collection Kauai
