About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Once you open the front door, and see the view of the ocean and palm trees that will confirm you made the right choice in picking our condo. It's beautiful- travertine tile throughout, slabs of Italian granite, to tropical upholstery; however, it's all over-shadowed by the mesmerizing ocean view. Take advantage of our low rates on Vacation Home by Owner. Nihi Kai Villas is situated across the road from the ocean and tide pools, in a lush setting of plantings that include bird of paradise plants to rainbow shower trees which combine to create the Island style that you will find warm and inviting.

Our condo has four lanais (patios), but there is one that's king, and that's the one off the living room. We have a tall metal table with an antique finish and four chairs. It's almost an extra room, because you will want to begin every morning with your coffee on the lanai and end the day, watching the sunset as you sip a glass of wine.

Our kitchen has new honey colored cabinets that are well stocked from dishes to cooking tools. There's a new stainless steel microwave and refrigerator. The granite on one of the counters is a work of art. It's so gorgeous, you might be tempted to take it home in your carry on. The dining room has a long wooden table with six chairs. A large flat screen TV is in the living room. The sofa converts into a queen size bed.

The stairs to the lower level are covered with hand-carved hardwood. This floor, as well as the floor above, is wall-to-wall imported travertine tile. The first bedroom has one queen bed and one twin bed. The bedroom comes complete with a flat screen TV. The connecting bathroom has a fresh honey colored cabinets, a mirror framed in kola wood, and a luxurious walk-in shower. Down the hall, is the safe for those items that need extra security and a washer and dryer to help you pack light. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a flat screen TV. The connecting bathroom, also, has a fresh, honey colored cabinets and mirror framed in kola wood. The bathroom has a shower/bath combination.

There are ceiling fans in every room and the trade winds, too, that will keep you comfortable.

You'll have fun in the ocean with swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, and snorkeling. Remember the ocean is just steps away. There are so many activities to do from helicopter tours, hiking, take a zip-line, catamaran cruises on the Napali Coast that you won't be able to do it all; so when you return, book with us and receive a 10% discount.

We have additional fun packed in the condo with boogie boards, 8 sets of snorkeling equipment & fins, and 4 good sets of golf clubs (one is a woman's set).

About Butch and Mary Ann

We used to go to Oahu and Maui, until our first visit to Kauai twenty years ago. Wow! God was showing off when He made Kauai. Butch is with the Colorado Rockies, so we work around his schedule to spend time here. Go Rockies! Even if you're a fan of another team, we'll still rent your our condo! Our biggest joy is spending time with our five kids and 10 grandchildren!

Butch and Mary Ann purchased this condo in 2005

Why Butch and Mary Ann chose Poipu

Through baseball we have traveled coast- to-coast, Europe, and the Caribbean. We found Kauai to be the most beautiful, magical place. The fragrant, gentle air is almost soft, sounds of the ocean and birds float through the condo, it is paradise. Any stress you have will squish out with every step in your flip-flops. You won't be disappointed in booking condo #404.

What makes this condo unique

A To-Do List on Kauai:

1.) Stand on the lanai and look for migrating humpback whales in the winter.

2.) Take a walk along the ocean and look for sea turtles, monk seals and the ever present chickens and roosters.

3.) Grab your beach chair and drink and walk to Brennecke's Beach, and less than 2 minutes you will be sinking your toes in the sand. (We're one of the closest condos to the beach.)

4.) Book a helicopter ride, a catamaran sunset cruise on the Na Pali Coast, or a fishing trip.

5.) Drive to Polihale Beach and stop at the Shrimp Station on the way home.

6.) Snorkel in front of the Beach House, next to Whaler's Cove, or drive to Tunnels on the other side and stop at the Tropical Taco on the way home.

7. Prepare dinner and dine on your lanai- quiet, romantic, and the price is right.

8. Dine out: Our favorites (see #7) after that: Keoki's, Duke's, Beach House, Eastside, and our neighbor Casa di Amaci.

9. Get in the water, boogie board, surf, swim, snorkel...

10. Grab your tennis racquet or paddle boards and head to the courts that are within steps of the condo.

11.) Drive out to the Kauai Coffee Co. and pick up some great coffee.

12.) Take one of the 3 sets of golf clubs provided and go hit a round. Or, take one of our boogie boards to the beach that's minutes away on foot. We also provide 8 sets of snorkeling equipment and fins in the closet by the washer and dryer! How fun is that?

Great View....can't beat the location...This condo is 10 minute walk to Brennecke and Poipu Beaches

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this beautiful updated condo....very clean, well stocked with all the conveniences of home and location can't be beat. Great breeze throughout condo once all the windows and sliders are open and ceiling fans work great. Nihi Kai resort is well maintained with beautiful tropical garden landscaping and the pool is very clean. We watched the sunset from the pool area and from Poipu Beach. 10 minute walk to the beach...monk seals, honu, good snorkeling..don't forget the rainbows...oh how beautiful. Great way to relax and celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Good shopping and great restaurants nearby. Also close to other water sport activities....

Maholo, Butch and Mary Ann for letting us stay in your condo. We hope to return next year.

Herrliche Tage auf Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Das Condo ist auf 2 Ebenen angebracht. Im Erdgeschoss sind die Schlafzimmer mit jeweils eigener kleinen Terrasse und die Bäder. Im OG befindet sich das Wohn- Esszimmer und die offene Küche. Herrlicher Blick aufs Meer vom Balkon. Sehr sauber, tolle Küchenaustattung mit allem was man sich wünscht. Der Pool der Anlage ist sehr ansprechend und recht groß. Die schönen Strände, Brennecke zum Boogie Boarding (rel. voll, weil klein) und Poipu Beach Park mit großer Rasenfläche, sind nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß weg. An der rückwärtigen Seite des Condos sind die Tennisplätze der Anlage. Wenn die Wohnungstüre zu ist, ist die Beeinträchtigung nicht nennenswert. Sehr, sehr schöne und gepflegte Wohnung. Wir würden sie jederzeit wieder buchen.

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this lovely condo. The kitchen is very well stocked, and we enjoyed the BBQ's and the tennis courts. We would have enjoyed having air conditioning as we had some difficulty sleeping at night due to the heat. But overall, we had a great experience. Thank you!

CONDO 404 is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

404 Nihi Kai This condo was fully stocked, clean and the perfect location! When we entered condo 404 it was very clean, crisp and comfortable. The balcony overlooked the Pacific. We were steps from Brennecke’s Beach, Poipu Beach and Brennecke’s restaurant and deli. We visited at least 15 beaches during our eleven day stay and found that Poipu Beach had the best snorkeling on the island. Our group saw the most sea life while swimming and snorkeling at Poipu Beach. In addition to the colorful fish, each morning a sea turtle and or Hawaiian monk seal had beached itself at Poipu Beach.

We came with a group of 13. Our group rented three condos in Nihi Kai. Parking was never an issue. Ours had the best-equipped kitchen and the most “toys” to enjoy the beach and other outdoor activities. Condo 404 also had the most fans! Air conditioning is not necessary, but on the one hot night we had, those fans sure came in handy! We even spent part of a day looking at other South Coast condos and complexes to see if we wanted to stay somewhere else when we returned—NOPE! There was no other place that matched condo 404. The pool was refreshing. The grills and picnic areas were great. Then tennis courts were in good shape and the grounds were gorgeous!

Butch and MaryAnn, the owners of condo 404, were so kind and accommodating. When planning our trip to Kauai, I contacted them by phone and email to confirm information, ask questions and get advice about the complex, the area and the island. Their suggestions were spot on!

Koloa and Poipu are also on the South Coast and just short drives from the Nihi Kai condos. Both small towns provide good food, shopping and opportunities to explore the island in fun and unique ways. We booked an ATV waterfall tour, a luau, a catamaran trip to the Na Pali Coast, a breakfast at the Grand Hyatt and a round of golf on the South Shore of Kauai. We explored the entire island! We explored the canyon, waterfalls, a variety of towns, a few churches, many stores and as many beaches as we could. We saw others zip-lining, windsurfing and fishing. We hiked and took in the beauty of the island. I have never seen such colors. This is a spiritual place, a kind place, a place to heal. My husband said his blood pressure dropped to 100/70 by the second day. Kauai is as close to heaven as we have ever seen and condo 404 was our home for those magical 11 days. We hope to return as soon as possible.
