Nihi Kai is a gem of a complex right on the shores of the great Pacific Ocean! My unit is located away from street and is very quiet and peaceful. I come every six months to ensure the quality and comfort for you and your family.

. My goal is for you to enjoy the island and not deal with infrastructure issues. Priced fairly and outfitted tastefully........

Come join the very satisfied and growing rental pool.

We are nestled just steps away from both Brenneke and Poipu Beach, it is quaint, quiet and has landscaping that rivals a botanical garden. My unit is tucked back and is very quiet for a restful sleep but close to pool and BBQ's. Spacious, warm tones and relaxing décor will greet you upon arrival.

Unit is non-smoking with ~ 1500 square feet which includes interior and exterior lanai's. Interior is roughly 1200 sq. feet.There are four Garden view lanai's with a decent partial ocean view from the upstairs lanai.

This is a great place to unwind after enjoying your favorite island activity. Dinners on the back lanai enjoying the evening air and sunset, cap off a perfect day. The kitchen is fully stocked for your convenience. High speed internet access.

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 South Shore

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 secluded perfectly situated home, so wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time staying in this unit with our two daughters, ages 6 and 8. The grounds are immaculate, the pool is located in a lovely location close to the beach. The second day that we were there, we saw humpback whales offshore from the pool, breaching and playing. Nihi Kai is steps from Brennecke Beach and a short walk to Poipu Beach Park. During the day, monk seals would come ashore, and evenings we would walk down to the beach and watch the sea turtles resting. We rented boogie boards and snorkeling gear from Nukumoi, and used the beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler provided by the owners nearly every day. There was even ice packs kept in freezer for us to use with the cooler. The owners have thought of everything and have gone to great lengths to keep the condo in excellent condition. The lack of air-conditioning was never an issue. We kept windows open and fans on at night and were always comfortable sleeping.

We hope to stay again in the future! what a lovely place!

Great condo for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 teens to enjoy a fantastic Kauai vacation. It is very comfortable, providing a fully-equipped kitchen to prepare one's own meals, quiet lanais for dining and contemplating the view, and great beds for a restful sleep - including twin beds in the second bedroom for feuding teens. The resort grounds are scenic and serene, with quality barbecues we used often, ample convenient parking and a pleasant gathering of residents on the wall to watch the sunset. Our visit went super smoothly and I would highly recommend this condo.

Great location and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

It's walking distance from the beach. The kitchen, like the rest of the house, had everything we needed: cooking utensils, towels, and linens. This is a very large condo with the two bedrooms and two full baths downstairs. Our kids had their own room and lots of space to play. They were fascinated with the glass dining table.

Wonderful stay, great location, nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. Nice location. Very clean and organized. Kitchen is well stocked. Parking is easy.

Really appreciated the 4 beach chairs/umbrella/ice chest available that made packing put up to go to the beach very easy.

Would highly recommend. Good for families with small children (we had a 22 month old and grandmother with us)
