We stayed at Nihi Kai 804 during our honeymoon in Kauai and absolutely loved it. The pictures are very accurate and we were not disappointed. The owner was very easy to deal with and the welcome package was a pleasant surprise. When we arrived the previous occupant had broken a screen door and upon our arrival the owner emailed to say a repair man would be there to fix it. That day the screen was fixed!
It is in a great location and close to everything. We enjoyed the pool (but not the walk uphill back to the condo...hahaha) and most days we were the only ones at the pool. The complex is very quiet and well maintained with excellent views of the beach and ocean.
The bathrooms could use an update but everything was clean and well kept. Some people may find the layout a bit strange but it is the same as we are used to where the bedrooms are downstairs and the living room upstairs so we didn't mind. It also helped keep the bedroom cooler for sleeping. The bedroom was very quiet as it is an end unit and while sleeping we never heard our neighbours.
The major drawback is a lack of AC. We knew this going into it and thought it would be fine but it was hot! It basically took staying in for dinner off the table since the afternoon and evening in the unit were just too hot. Kauai was experiencing record setting high temperatures during our stay so that didn't help. A few extra fans would have helped (there was one in the second bedroom that was broken).
One note on the directions provided by the owner - they almost got you there. We arrived late at night in the dark. The directions take you to the main entrance of the complex, not directly to the unit. You actually have to turn up a street and follow it to the end in order to find the parking for this unit. We had to run around the complex in the dark and rain to find the unit and then walk back on the road to the car to drive up and park. It was a bit confusing. Once we knew we never had a problem from then on. You can actually follow signs for a restaurant Casa Di Amici which is very close to the unit.
It is a great unit and really felt just like home. We loved our time there and would recommend it! Wish we were there now!
