My group rented four condos at the Nihi Kai for us and our extended family. Everyone had an outstanding vacation. The condos were clean and equiped with all the necessities as well as some unexpected items such as beach chairs, umbrellas, boggie boards, coolers, etc. The grandchildren loved the pool, which isn't large, but it is deep. Swimming down in the deep water was a new experience. At Poipu beach the snorkeling was like swimming in a bowl of tropical fish. Then there were the sunsets and, for the adults, the 8:00 happy hour at Brenneke's. As we left the beach for the last time, I heard my grandson ask his father,"Dad,do you think we will ever come back here before I am old?"

Lots of room. Enjoyed the sunrise and sunset on lanai. Clean. Comfortable.
Return to Nihi Kai--our favorite Hawaiin property

We have stayed at Nihi Kai several times over the years and seek out the upper 2 floors of the 800 unit because of the view down the beach. Some units are dated and a bit worn, but that is recognized in the price. They are clean with good equipment, including beach stuff. We used the wifi a lot, although it took three days for property management to get it operating properly. Nihi Kai is within walking distance of Poipu Beach.
Our main complain was about noise. We have seen most of the sights on Kauai, so we spent lots of time on the Lanai, relaxing and reading. The grounds crew spent 2-3 days a week trimming the vegetation with gas-powered equipment this made life on the lanai intolerable at times. Why not electric?
We'll go back!

Our family has experienced Maui and were wondering how Kauai would measure up. Not in the same league! Kauai wins! This picture is EXACTLY but not ALL of what you experience in this condo. Roomy enough to share with parents of a 17 and 25 year old and feel together but have space. All major sites East, West and North are no more than an hour away with wonders in between. Great beaches and snorkeling are in walking distance (5 minutes) with wonderful sea life and sea turtles outside this fabulously landscaped property. Shipwrecked Beach is a short drive and well worth the beach, jumping rock and best they have showers and bathrooms. A need to visit is Tunnels to the North and of course the Grand Canyon of the Pacific in the West at a minimum. Enjoy and forget the mainland while you are here!
Great location, lots of space, views

We love staying at Nihi Kai--walking distance to Brennecke and Poipu beaches, lots of space for our two kids in the condo, plus tennis courts and a pool. This year we upgraded to an ocean view. We like the convenience of washer/dryer in the condo and high-speed internet. The perfect base for exploring the island. Kauai is our favorite place in the world!
Nice stay at Nihi Kai

This unit is up on the hill towards the back of the property, with an ocean view. While interior is dated, it's clean and comfortable and the kitchen is perfectly stocked. There were toiletries and plenty of bath and beach towels, too. The Parrish Collection provided a hotline for activities, which was helpful, and within 20 minutes responded to a call that the DVD player in the living room was broken. The development is not luxurious, but well kept, plants nicely tended and a lot of them. Pool was fine and Brennecke's beach is across the street-what more do you need?!
Girls trip in paradise

It was our first all girls trip to Kauai and what a great trip. The condo was great, very spacious, clean, great pool area, close to shopping & restaurants and only a short walking distance to Poipu Beach and park. We had a great view from our lanai and the surrounding condo grounds. The condo was well stocked in everything but towels, with going to the pool and the beach daily we often ran out of clean towels and had to do a load about every other day.
