This is one of the few units that has AC. It's actually just in the master bedroom but they provide plenty of fans and it cooled down enough at night we didn't really need the AC. The unit was spacious and had games and toys for the kids (as well as stuff for the beach, which is a 10 minute... More

Decent 2-story condo; really minimal ocean view visible only when standing from one far corner of the balcony. Too far from the ocean to hear the ocean sounds in the bedrooms. Furnishings were ok but getting tired and old. TV in master is the size of a laptop - really small! TV upstairs in living area is good sized. Essentials... More

A wonderful 3 bedroom condo occupying 1st (ground) and second floors with 3 bathrooms and a great balcony for watching the sunset. Snorkeling, body boards and folding chairs provided. Lovely on site facilities (pool, BBQ & tennis court) set in beautiful gardens. A lovely 5 min stroll to Poipu Beach Park.

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Nihi Kai Villa #300 for several days in July. Our experience from the time of making our reservation with the Parrish Collection until the (sad) time of our departure was exceptional. The villa is in a wonderful, central yet quiet, location along the ocean at Poipu Beach. The lush floral... More

We've stayed here twice and this time came back with a big family group. This is an awesome place, professionally managed by the Parrish Collection, which offers a great value for vacationers. We have experienced units 100, 401, 402, and 421. All have wonderful ocean views and are clean and comfortable. Here, you get a spacious condo, a nice pool,... More

Great proximity to beach but no air conditioning and stifling conditions. Couldn't sleep for some of the very hot nights there. We pulled down the verandah blinds but it didn't help. Space in 1 bedroom unit was good. Bed was very comfortable.Bathroom needs an upgrade and smelly shower curtain needed replacing.

Aloha Yambaby, Mahalo for taking the time to review Nihi Kai. We agree, it is a great location. We are sorry it was warmer during your stay as the trades were lighter than usual. It can get warm, especially in late summer or early fall, but we do our best to provide fans and most times it is short lived.... More

There are eight buildings with condos for rent that have various views of the ocean and the well landscaped garden of the complex. We most recently stayed in unit 825. It has very good ocean views. The complex is quiet and family oriented. There is a pool near the ocean which is clean with plenty of chairs around it. Nihi... More

A 5 minute walk to Poipu beach with it's great snorkelling, the occasional sea turtle and monk seal appearance, and beautiful sandy beaches. These villas don't have all the fancy amenities of the bigger resorts but are great value for the money. Clean, comfortable, and great for families and couples. Relaxed and fairly quiet.

How do you travel with your wife and 2 grown teenage boys? Pick an adobe that accommodates everyone & keep the peace !!! Hotels won't do. Resorts are too expensive. But Nihi Kai Villas in Kauai is the right place especially if your family is growing and demanding like mine. Plenty of space for everyone. Only a few feet from... More
