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....

We booked this place as my brother-in-law was staying in the same location and boy we were glad that we did. We booked unit #511 and it was a nice location with nice views of the gardens and a small view of the water. The condo had 3 rooms. one with a full size bed, and the other 2 with...

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...

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...

Stayed here for 5 nights as our base to explore Kauai. Simply perfect for two couples sharing. Requested house keeping to change the bed configuration in the second bedroom from twin to King. Super comfy! The overhead ceiling fan was all we needed to keep cool overnight. And it was great that each couple had their own bathroom too. Loved...

This condo location is in a very good location in Poipu. Rocky beach in front, but very short walk to sand & Brennekke Beach just down the road- short walk. Kiahuna Shopping Center very near and convenient. Notice: All the condos are individually owned and some are more updated/decorated than others. I took the time to view on website &...

We rented a corner unit at Nihi Kai Villas #420 through VRBO. We loved this quiet location. We were in walking distance to several beaches. We could watch the sunset from our balcony or just walk 3 minutes to the shore. We often saw large turtles playing in the surf right there. The unit had everything you need, beach towels,...

We stayed at the Nihi Kai Villas #203 for 2 weeks in April 2016. It is a 2 bedroom unit (2 king beds), with a pull out couch on the top level, full kitchen, and 2 bathrooms (both downstairs). One bathroom has been renovated, the other is quite retro (and drain doesn't work/plug for baths). Good things about the unit/property:...

This was our 3rd time to Kauai and we travelled with our children aged 6 and 3. We've previously stayed at Kiahuna Plantation and Prince Kuhio Resort. By far, Nihi Kai is the nicest. We stayed in unit #400. Very spacious end unit with lots of light and windows. Trade winds were lovely and kept it cool. New, modern kitchen...
