"Just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay in Mike and Cindy's condo! Where to start?
First, Mike is a breeze to work with. Responds promptly with questions, contracts, and deposit refund. Second: location. The Nihi Kai Villas are right across a quiet street to the beach, with a 1 minute walk to Brennecke's Beach (for boogie boarding) and a 5 minute walk to Poipu State Park Beach (which has a awesome swim area for kids and a restaurant with deli/shave ice across the road). We have been to every island on Hawaii 3 - 4 times, and we LOVED the convenience of a quick stroll to one of the nicest set of beaches in Hawaii. Also, the condo complex is across the parking lot from one of our favorite dinner places: Casa di Amici. Fabulous seafood and pasta. Third: the condo itself. We have stayed in many condos in Hawaii through the years, and Mike and Cindy's place was the nicest one. Perfect space for two parents, and older teenagers. The living area is large and comfortable with a nice deck outside and overhead fans. The sea breezes flowed and kept everyone cool. Nice large TV. The kitchen was beautiful and without a doubt the most extensively stocked kitchen I have ever seen. I am a cook and usually struggle to make things on vacation. Not in this kitchen. Salad spinner, rice cooker, 3 cutting boards, blender, spices, good knives, and every other gadget imaginable for cooking. We went to the farmer's market and local fish places every few days and had no problem making great dinners in the condo. Lots of supplies given like paper towel, dishwasher soap, etc which lasted us over a week. Downstairs are two full suites with incredibly comfy beds and pillows--I have never written a review about comfy beds! The master King bed suite had a nice TV. Lots of extra pillows and bedding, and enough white towels for the condo, and 6 huge beach towels for the beach. The bathrooms were spacious and had electric fans. Extra toilet paper rolls, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and a hair dryer were in the cabinets when we arrived. Nice stacking washing and dryer with laundry detergent and stain remover spray included. On the outside deck there were: 4 beach chairs (backpack style), an umbrella, ice chest, sand mats, etc. Very nice to have those available.
Mike and Cindy have worked overtime to think of everything you could possibly need to be comfortable on vacation in Poipu. Perfect condo in a perfect location. We can't wait to return!!"
