Note: Our unit has been a vacation rental since 1998. Besides the many reviews submitted directly to VRBO/HomeAway, here is a sampling of the many comments written in our guest books or emails we've received……

'We've been in your house for a couple of days now and we are very pleased with the accommodation. You have a really nice set up here, great location, one of the best units in the resort, in our opinion. Nothing beats an ocean view even though the garden area is very nice.......Everything was in perfect shape when we arrived. Property manager is doing a great job from what we can see. As always: We love Kauai! '
Arnold Rutgers, Arizona

'Love this place. Location, location, location!'
Ken & Jean Musolf, Muskegon, Wisconsin

'Wow! What a wonderful condo. All the renovations and decorating are beautiful. And the panoramic view is very special. We spent many an hour on the lanai soaking it all in.....'
Wayne & Jackie Schuster, Calgary
April 29, 2013

'Thank you for sharing your beautiful from which to enjoy Kauai. This is our second stay in unit 833 and the view is the best......'
Jennifer Hammer & Steven Thwaits
Seattle, Wa.

“Our vacation has been absolutely perfect! We love your comfortable and spacious condo. Without a doubt it has the best views of the entire complex”

“Everything about this condo and its location was excellent. From the spacious living quarters, that felt more like a home than a condo”

“The Nihi Kai 833 was a perfect condo for our family of four. You can't ask for a better location; just steps to Brennecke and Poipu beaches. The condo was fully equipped with everything you will need for a great vacation.”

“This was our second stay in 833, and everything was picture perfect. The views as always are fantastic, ocean and mountain views that take your breath away. The owner has done a wonderful job in updating the condo”

“Amazing! This was our third year year at Nihi Kai and most definitely the best. Your condo is the best. We had such a relaxing time we surely did not want to leave. Absolutely love this place.”

“Our dishwasher was running when we first entered the unit and the only way we could turn it off was the circuit breaker. The owner actually called us and apologized for our inconvenience. We had a new one 2 days later. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. Plants even have I.D. placards”.

“How wonderful to come to such a beautiful place and have all the comforts of home! We especially appreciated the “Kids Corner” you prepared. It’s always more fun to play with someone else’s toys when your 3 year old is awake at 5 a.m. !”

'“Just to let you know our trip and stay at nihi kai was amazing. The condo was great and the view amazing. We only had 2 wishes---BBQ utensils and a stool or high chair to sit on the deck so someone short like me can see over the railing.”

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1998

          About the owner: After many trips to Hawaii since 1980 Kauai had become our island of choice. In 1998 we made that vacation home dream a reality. All it took were the views from lanai and we were sold. We currently live in Seattle with our 4 dachshund children. Living a relatively short distance away means that we can make many trips there for both vacationing and directing our many upgrading projects. We're known to be very 'hands on' owners and we try to ensure our guests have the same experience we would want in a vacation rental. Our (human) children were only 10 and 12 when we purchased and they've enjoyed many long stays at Nihi Kai over the years - testament to the fact that Kauai is for children too. The owners, Deborah & Peter

          Why the Owner Chose Nihi Kai Villas:
          We prefer to stay in the more mature 'Hawaiian feel' properties with large units, mature and lush landscaping and of the Hawaiian Plantation style architecture. Nihi Kai Villas fit this description. The views and the location, ocean view pool, and walking distance to beaches and amenities made Nihi Kai Villas 833 our top choice.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Views, location, updated decor, heated pool, private and home-like feel are all unique benefits of Nihi Kai 833. We've provided a unique bedding arrangement of a queen and a twin in the second bedroom making our unit great for 2 adult couples, children of different ages, grandparents or nannies! We've taken the uncertainty away for you by contracting with a professional property manager just one mile away as our on-island manager. Great Vacation Retreats is a local property manager and real estate firm with high ratings and will be there to assist you.
