“Dirty and poorly stocked. Should not be in rental inventory.”
Where to start . . . The good - nice view of the pool and ocean. Office staff was okay. A safe was provided as it seems that they have had problems with break-in in the past. The bad - Location was very low key and, for us, boring. We went off to other parts of the island each day. The ugly - this unit should not be in rental inventory. It was advertised by the rental agent as "Although not recently updated, these unique properties provide value and comfort for your family, yet still meet Parrish Kauai's minimum quality standards." Apparently, Parrish has no standards. It was extremely poorly stocked; I had to wash dishes and utensils after each meal because there only a few to be had. Cookware was minimal. Beach towels were actually bath towel sized (beach towels were given to use upon request), no beach chairs, no cooler. The unit was dirty. My kids did not want to sit on furniture because it was ratty and I'll let my pictures speak for the rest of the place. Mold growing in the agitator of the tiny washing machine. When we arrived, there was a dirty soda bottle under the TV console (one small TV from the 1980's that could only be viewed if you were directly in front of it). Light switches were filthy and need only be wiped to be cleaned up. I knew that there would be no air conditioning but I was assured by the rental agent the the unit stayed cool but the heat was unbearable and the the ceiling fans didn't do much. To say that it has not been recently renovated is an understatement and implies that, at some time, this unit has been updated. Very deceptive. The draw liner in the kitchen and bathrooms is clearly from the 1970's (yes, the draw liner). The bathrooms are older than time. They tried to make is smell decent with horrid vanilla air fresheners that made me sick. The entire place needs to be gutted. We spent as much time out of this condo as possible. Stay away from this unit.
Response from the manager Aloha Patti, Mahalo for taking the time to post your comments. We are sorry Poipu Beach was boring for you but are glad you were able to find some other exciting things to do while on Kauai. In terms of the unit, we take great pride in presenting detailed descriptions and photos, including a four tiered rating system. As you note, NK201 is clearly labeled as an “island casual” as it has not been upgraded. Since you specifically picked this unit, in the future, we suggest if you want a more updated interior, you pick a Premier or Premier Plus unit. In terms of stocking, if there was anything that you needed a simple request to our office would have resulted in us supplying anything you needed. We actually have oversized beach towels and apologize that they we not in the unit. If there were any cleaning oversights, we certainly would have addressed them had we known. We tried repeatedly to reach you upon your arrival and during your stay to welcome you, but no calls were answered or returned. Note, our office is in the same building you were in and you had to walk by our office to get to your entrance. We sincerely wish you would have advised us of any problems you felt needed to be addressed. The few maintenance items that you mention have since been fixed. Mahalo for pointing them out. For any inconvenience, we do apologize. Lastly, we are happy to note that the kitchen and both bathrooms are now undergoing a complete updating and remodel. We are sorry that it was not in time for your visit, but all future guests will not get to enjoy the new improvements. Mahalo, Parrish Kauai
“Honeymooners in Poipu Beach, Kauai”
My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Nihi Kai Villas. It was a prime location (right near numerous beaches and restaurants) and the condo was very clean and comfortable. We had internet issues and a service person was there to help us within a couple hours. Everyone was very accommodating! We ended up arriving a little earlier than check in and the staff allowed us to access our condo early. I would definitely stay there again, no questions asked.
“It was a great location and beautiful condo...”
This was one of the nicest condos in Kauai that we have ever stayed at. Since it was our 6th trip to Kauai and we were bringing our whole family, we wanted a place that was both close to beaches and dining...this place fit the bill perfectly. It has beautiful views from the lanai...saw turtles and whales and watched lots of body surfers!!! The grandchildren enjoyed the pool and lovely grounds. We were so happy with our condo, we have decided to visit again soon!!!
“great location great island”
I would really like to stay in this condo again. The view was beautiful and It was only a short five minute walk to the beach. Perfect.
We had a wonderful experience at our condo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The unit had a great view, it was clean and right next to the ocean. We had snorkling and a kid friendly beach a few steps away. We also had a rare monk seal that came to visit every day and a great view to the giant sea turttles. Great time.
Great location to beach and pool. Not too fancy -- casual and comfortable. Great service with safe problem and broken dryer. Great service for booking a catamaran trip. Beds were very nice. If anything, I would replace the door lock, which was very sticky, and maybe the kitchen appliances -- mainly the stove. We had a great time in Kauai!
This was our 5th visit to Kauai and our second stay at Nihi Kai Villas. We loved it. My husband and I, along with my sister enjoyed every minute of our stay. A very nice place with a view of the ocean that is fantastic. We were there 3 weeks (had to go back to cold weather about 3 weeks to soon) and got to see whales right from our lanai. Our Unit was very nice but does need some up dating on the plumbing fixtures and a very good deep cleaning throughout. But over all quite nice.We will be back!!
Great location. Right across a local residential street from the ocean. A few hundred feet from great beaches. The unit was clean and well laid out. It was stocked with everything imaginable. The bathrooms were original 1970's and in need of updating, but everything else was very nice. The view from the upstairs lanai was awesome. You can't get this kind of location and size for anywhere near this price at a hotel.
