It doesn't get any better for the money!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from Kauai to celebrate her 60th birthday. We have rented a number of places on previous trips to the 'Garden Isle,' and must say the accommodations at #422 Nihi Kahi were fabulous. If you only want to stay in one place while in Kauai, this central location is great. The condo is open, spacious, modern but with a Hawaiian flair. With a dynamite view from the lanai, and a short 100 yard walk to the beach, it just doesn't get any better for the money. The kitchen is compact but superbly stocked with supplies, including the first batch of quality knives I've ever found in a rental, that are actually sharp. Both bedrooms are large, and the bed in the master bedroom is comfy. What topped everything off were the cool breezes blowing through the condo along with the sound of the ocean waves at night, lulling us to sleep. We absolutely will stay at this place again on our next trip back to Kauai.

Excellent Location!

  • 4 of 5

My 3 adult children and I spent an amazing week here. The location was perfect! We could walk to the beach, and the deli/store, and the drive to shops and restaurants was 5 minutes! We spent most evenings enjoying the sunset from the Lanai. Plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen is very well furnished. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars (and If I could give 4.5 I would) is that the sofa bed was not adequate to sleep on for an adult due to the foam mattress being thin. But, if you don't need to sleep on it, the place is awesome!! Very cozy and comfortable. The rocky beach directly in front of the hotel was a resting spot for turtles. At one time we were watching over 6 of them from the shore playing in the waves! Snorkeling Poipu was place however is at Koloa Landing. No beach to sit on but by far the best for coral, fish and turtles!! It is 3 minutes down the road. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and comment about the sleeper sofa mattress. We have been trying to replace this mattress and found it challenging to have a new one shipped to the islands. The new mattress for the sleeper sofa in the study was on order, but unfortunately did not arrive before your stay. It has now been replaced.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This place is great, convenient, well stocked and in perfect location. The "study" with the roll away gave our grandchildren (ages 5 and 7) their own space. Would definitely come here again.

Beautiful condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo with our 2 small children for 10 days this past August. Such a wonderful trip!! We could not have been happier with this rental and will definitely be our new "go-to" choice to stay. My husband's first comment when we arrived was the pictures do not do it justice. The condo was very clean, comfortable and just what you want in a "home away from home". The property was quiet and you do not notice your neighbors. The grounds are very well kept, along with the pool area. This is our 5th time visiting Kauai, and staying on the south shore, and we can definitely say this is the best condo we've stayed at thus far. You will not be disappointed!

We enjoyed very much our stay at Nihi Kai 422, in Poipu, Kauai. The location is excellent; close to the beach, with a beautiful view. The unit has enough space to accommodate 2 families with 2 childrens, each. It is well equipped with all you need, maybe even more. The breeze in the condo is nice and we never felt it was too hot. Definitely we will rent this place again.

Great place to stay during our first visit to Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the beach with a wonderful view of the ocean. Plenty of room for our family of 7. At night there was a nice breeze that kept the condo cool. The unit was very clean and communication with the owners in preparation for our trip was excellent. If we ever get the opportunity to return to Kauai we would look forward to staying here again.
