We stayed at the Nihi Kai Villas the first week of June. Check in was easy and accompanied with Mai Tais! We also got a complimentary bottle of wine in the fridge plus a little note of welcome. The manger called the next day to see if we needed anything--very nice. We stayed in unit 520 on the 3rd floor.... More

We have just returned for our 4th stay at Nihi Kai Villas, we have stayed in a different condo every time but love the view and amenities in #422 where we are staying this time. The condos are large and the grounds are very well kept. We love being so close to Brennecke's, Poipu Beach State Park and within walking... More

Second stay, first time with the kids. Stayed in 820. It is the corner unit at the very top of the property...furthest from pool (not an issue for us with teens, but young families might want be closer to the pool). The pool has been nicely renovated since our first visit in 98'. The grounds inside the complex are basically... More

Nihi Kai Villas are an outstanding value. The location is nearly perfect, and the landscaping is beautiful. The unit that we rented was lovely, and we hope very much to stay there again someday. An added bonus is the proximity to Casa Di Amici, a restaurant adjacent to the property. Hawaiian sunsets from a Nihi lanai are hard to beat.

We stayed in Nihi Kai Villa #524 for a week in January. Loved everything about it and would stay again. The location is perfect for getting to all beaches and the greenway path that is lovely for walking or jogging. We could see the ocean and hear it - loved that. The pool is clean and uncrowded and the BBQs... More

I stayed in different units in Oct. 2012 and 2013 and both times were terrific. the unit maintenance was good, the grounds are nicely kept, the units well-stocked with dishes and such. Although not right on the water, it's very close and thus satisfactory for someone who doesn't want to spend top dollar. The beaches within easy walking distance are... More

Beautiful condo. Great view from lanai looking over gardens with water views to one side,mountain views to the other. Redone kitchen with new appliances. Parking right behind unit, one flight of stairs to front door. Short walk to the beach. Nice pool and tennis courts. Look forward to coming back soon.

We had a very good experience at the Nihi Kai condos. We stayed in unit 505 in mid October. UNIT I was a little worried selecting the "island casual" décor, the lower priced and least updated of the offerings. We were pleasantly surprised. Sure, there were no granite countertops, but the place was spotless and totally comfortable. Everything worked, and... More

We just returned from our first Hawaiian vacation and I am so glad we chose Kaua'i as our island destination. We stayed in Princeville (at the Westin) for the first two nights and then moved to the Nihi Kai villas on the sunny south shore for the final seven days. The location of the Nihi Kai villas was superb! It... More
