Tennis courts, pool and gas barbecues available as shared amenities.

And by the way, with all that Nihi Kai/Poipu surroundings have to offer, no need to get in your car if all you are looking for is quiet time, relaxation and fresh ocean air.

About Mike McKenna

We had been to all of the islands except Kauai. In 2004, we ventured over and we fell in love!! We bought a year later and we have spent as much time as we can at Poipu. We know you will fall in love with what Kauai has to offer. If it is a return trip, then you already know :) We have gone to great lengths to make our place comfortable for you. Now, as a proud Grandparent, as you see in the photo.....I am ready to share Kauai with them as well Mahalo.

Mike McKenna purchased this condo in 2005

Why Mike McKenna chose Poipu

Nihi Kai is a special place. It is tucked away but so very close to all that Poipu has to offer. A short jaunt along the beautiful shore and you are at Brenneke's beach. If you love walking, you really can just park your car and within easy distance are world class hotels and restaurants. The Poipu Beach Park is adjacent to Brenneke's beach. Snorkeling, swimming, boogey boarding, surfing all right there.

What makes this condo unique

We love the relaxed atmosphere at Nihi Kai. It really is a place to recharge!. Heated pool is quaint and with a nice Ocean view. BBQ area is great for the evening and the infamous Nihi Kai wall to sit and gander at the Ocean at evening time is not to be missed! We can get to the Hotels but we love coming back to our condo and Nihi Kai!! Be sure to spend time watching the Sea Turtles across the street....

Lovely place to stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Poipu, the condo location was great - just a short walk to the beach, saw whales while walking along the shore, swimming and snorkeling at the the local beaches great, and saw resting sea turtles and monk seals on the beach. The unit suited the 4 of us just great - nicely decorated in Hawaiian style, well-equipped kitchen , beach chairs and cooler to borrow, lots of information and recommendations from owner. Breakfasts on the lanai watching the birds were lovely, beautiful gardens throughout the location grounds, parking convenient. We would definitely recommend this vacation rental and would love to return.

Great Condo - Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here in November 2017. This condo had EVERYTHING we needed. Lots of small, thoughtful details like the cooler and ice packs. Fully stocked and functional kitchen. Beautifully maintained rental property. Our kids wanted boogie boards, so we bought a couple at Walmart and donated them to the condo's beach gear for future guests. Poipu beach was just a few minutes' walk away and had the BEST snorkeling we found on the island--many of the beaches on the north side of the island were closed due to rough surf during this time of year. We saw all kinds of fish, snowflake eels, a small spotted ray, and LOTS of turtles! This was a PERFECT place to take our kids (ages 12 and 10) snorkeling for the first time.

Very nicely decorated & stocked with necessities.

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time I stayed at the Nihi Kai villas. This was very nice. My only problem with these villas are the stairs, otherwise they are very appealing with their lovely location & comfortable accommodations. Very nicely decorated & well kept!

My family and I just spent 8 nights at this beautiful condo. The condo was built in the 70's but has been updated and is well maintained. The complex is well maintained as well. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals in while on Kauai. We loved to spend a few nights out to eat but relaxed and cooked in quite a bit as well. Eating out is EXPENSIVE. I would highly recommend getting some fresh Ahi steaks or Mahi Mahi from the Koloa fish market! We had pretty strong trade winds that flowed through the unit while we were there. There is no A/C but the winds and fans (another provided amenity) kept us quite comfortable. Parking was always available and close to the building. The beach is super close and at most a 5 minutes walk. The complex has a shared outdoor grill and picnic pavilion with two gas grills. The pool was clean and well maintained with a foot wash just outside the pool and a shower inside the pool area with bathrooms. The sunsets from the beach, pool area, and Brennecke's beach restaurant were AWESOME! We saw turtles and seals everyday. Our Zodiac excursion was cancelled due to high surf so we went ziplining instead. I wasn't very excited at first but after we did it, I can't recommend it enough. We used Koloa ziplining. 8 lines with one over 1/2 mile long and 2 over a quarter of a mile. Check it out. Anyway, back to the unit and Nihi Kai in general. We loved it and can't wait to come back one day. The owner has done a great job keeping it looking nice and feeling comfortable. Thanks!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine nights in this condo and had a wonderful stay! The condo is one of the best values in Poipu and conveniently located near all the south shore sites. Most evenings we walked across the street to Poipu Beach to watch the sunsets (and hang out with the monk seals). We found everything we needed in the condo for an enjoyable stay. Mike has thought of almost everything, even filters for the coffee pot! All we had to do was buy groceries. The unit is clean and neat as a pin, the grounds are immaculate and the pool only a short walk away. We also made use of the BBQs, which are also conveniently nearby. We shopped around a lot before selecting this condo and at this price point it's a great deal! Thank you for an enjoyable stay! Hope to return soon!!

Wonderful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay while in paradise! This is a very comfortable condo that has everything you need for an extended stay. Mike has thought of everything from the dishware to the coffee maker, including filters! There was nothing we needed except groceries and snorkel gear. The fans in the unit, along with a little help from the trade winds kept the temperatures comfortable. As others have said, this is a perfect south shore location and an easy walk to the beach. We watched the sunset every night, sharing the beach with the visiting monk seals. Mahalo for helping make our trip to Kauai such a pleasant one!
