About Maureen Reyes

We spend several months each year on Kauai and the rest of our time in Oregon.

Maureen Reyes purchased this condo in 2000

Why Maureen Reyes chose Poipu

We love Kauai and when we discovered Nihi Kai Villas we knew we'd be coming back so often we decided to buy a condo here. It is truly our second home.

What makes this condo unique

You can't get much closer to the beach and the property grounds are like a botanical garden. In winter, join the Nihi Kai 'Wallnuts' on the wall in front of the resort. Here we watch the whales, the sunset and make new friends with all the other guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

George sent me this email shortly after his return home."First of all, we really loved your unit. The configuration was perfect for our family and the location exceeded our expectations. The landscaping there at Nihi Kai is amazing - nothing like it, and I’m sure they don’t implement landscaping like that any longer.What we really appreciated The outdoor grills Washer and Dryer The boogie board (would be nice if there were 2) The TiVO (we don’t have it at home – so it was new)Thanks again for the early arrival, and we’ll definitely give you first consideration should we (hopefully) return to Kauai in the near future." Regards,George

Great location, well equipped kitchen

  • 5 of 5

The Condo has everything we needed to cook great fish that we bought at the Koloa Fish Market. From wine glasses to coffee cups, it had what we needed. Many little touches made this place easy to walk in and enjoy. The Condo has windows on opposite ends which allows for great airflow. And Lanais on both ends were a bonus. Great place!

Immaculate and Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

Located within an easy walk to Poipu Beach (we saw Hawaiian monk seals and green sea turtles daily), this condo checks all the boxes. Clean, well-stocked, lovely furnishings, and a communicative owner. When the ocean is too rough you can swim in the outdoor swimming pool.

Good condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable condo for two couples to stay in. It’s nicely provisioned with a few basic foods - coffee, popcorn, salt, pepper, sugar, etc. The walk to Poipu beach is only 10-15 minutes and we saw monk seals and sea turtles there pretty much every morning. It’s quiet and there is an off-street parking lot.

The only downside is that the front door is on the upper level and the bedrooms are on the lower level, for carrying suitcases. So pack light or get strong!

Would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable stay in Poipu

  • 4 of 5

The condo was easy to find, parking was convenient and ample, and check in a breeze. The unit had everything we needed. It was great to have the full, well stocked kitchen. The pool area was lovely. Very short walk to the beach and a convenient foot washing area near the edge of the resort when returning. (Not that all of the beautiful soft white beach sand ever really comes off!) Loved the 2 beach chairs with the pouches and carrying straps! (We did end up purchasing a beach umbrella at Costco, which is a necessity on a sunny day in Hawaii.) We also appreciated the beach towels and small cooler.

Overall, we had a wonderful week on Kauai. If I could have rated the condo a 4.5 I would done so.

Our only issues, and most were minor, were:

- Bathrooms definitely showing their age. Cleanliness never an issue but it’s probably time for a bathroom renovation.

- The washing machine sounded like a 787 taking off when spinning. Very loud! Was happy to have a washer and dryer, though.

- Noise from adjacent units was problematic at times. We assume this is because we were vacationing over the holidays, when there were many large family groups and children staying in the units. We doubt this would be an issue at another time of year.

- Sleepng temperature in bedrooms was never a problem. The breeze and overhead fan made sleeping cool and comfortable. The master bedroom and bathroom were quite warm during the day, however, even with fully closing the door, window and blinds to try and keep it cool. We honestly were not in the bedroom much at all during the day except to take post-beach showers. It was the process of getting dressed, drying one’s hair, applying make up, etc. after showering that was tough. I found I had to go upstairs to cool off a couple of times while trying to get ready after an afternoon shower. It may not be an issue for everyone, but as a woman of a certain age I found it challenging. Not a deal breaker, though.

Thank you to Maureen, Bruce and the cleaning crew for a memorable stay in the Poipu area. We loved our vacation and look forward to our next trip.
