Nihi Kai #403: Steps to Poupi beach!

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Two bedroom, two bath condo with ocean view and steps to the beach.

An ideal location in sunny Poipu Beach Kauai, Nihi Kai Villas Resort is just steps away from the Poipu shoreline and a little over five minute walk to world-famous body surfing Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Unit 403 is 150 feet from the shore with a gorgeous view of the Pacific from the private lania. The two bedroom, two bath condo can accommodate up to 6 people (two in each bedroom and two on the sleeper in the living room.)

The condo is fully ready for use with towels, bedding, kitchen supplies (no food of course) and a full kitchen (stove, oven, sink, fridge etc and everything you need to prepare and eat food), beach towels/chairs/toys etc. The condo has a king bed (bedroom one), two twins (bedroom two) a queen sized sofa pullout bed (living room.) There are two full bathrooms connected one to each bedroom. The deck/patio has a view of the palm trees and the grounds of the condo site but more importantly, the ocean! Table and chairs to sit on the deck and enjoy the breeze.

There is a washer and dryer in the unit to freshen up your clothes or towels of the unit throughout the week. There is no daily maid service.

The BBQ is just about 50 steps from the unit and covered so it's convenient even if it's raining a little. The BBQ is gas so you just turn a knob and soon it's hot! Most people make a trip early in the vacation to Costco or the grocery store and buy enough food for their time at the condo.

Nihi Kai, the property the condo is located on, has a gorgeous pool within steps of the ocean and tennis courts for all to use. Very well manicured property. We love the site because my family goes on walks together several times a day in Poipu and our condo is just steps from a number of good "starting points" for a walk.

- Full kitchen

- Washer/Dryer

- Four separate Lania areas to relax

About Steven Thornton

Our family has been coming to Kauai for six years and has fallen in love with Poipu. After traveling all over the world, we decided that this tiny little slice of heaven is where we wanted to end up, so in 2016, we took the plunge and bought this wonderful condo. We are glad you are considering sharing your Kauai experience with us through booking our "home away from home." Our times in Poipu have been so special and we hope that you will have the same experience when you stay at our condo. I actively manage our condo so please, call, text or leave a message and I will get back to you soon to help you plan your trip to Poipu! Please contact me anytime and I will be glad to help you out. My response time is generally very quick.

Location, clean and caring owner

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th Hawaiian vrbo condo and by far our favourite! The location was essential for nap time for our 8 month old. The condo had everything that we needed including a baby gate that came in handy. Several amazing beaches were within walking distance, even while carrying a baby. We saw turtles and monks seals every day. The owner, Stephen, was awesome and provided excellent recommendations for food and things to do.

We would happily book this condo again in the future.

A perfect week

  • 5 of 5

This condo is wonderful. The accommodations were clean and well stocked. The grounds of the property were immaculate and the pool was lovely. The location was so convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. Steve made sure that everything was just right. We saw whales and dolphins right from the lanai. We would definitely stay here again.

Thanks so much, Steve!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you had a lovely trip and our condo worked out well. Seeing dolphins and whales from the front lanai still gets me excited every time I’m there! Please join us again any time your family needs another break from the cold.

Can’t say enough good things about the condo ..Stephen and Kauai!!

It was the perfect location for our family

2 very active boys who didn’t stop Swimming Snorkelling and Boogie Boarding.

There are 2 amazing Beaches just a 2 min walk away from the condo.

We have already booked for next year and cant wait to get back to Poipu Beach and Nihi Kai.

The condo was a perfect fit for our family

Great location & ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Loved our time in Poipu. Lovely rental, very spacious & clean! Beautiful gardens & pool. Walk to Brennecke & Poipu beaches with snorkelling. Must go to Bangkok Happy Bowl for dinner with love Hawaiian music. Also try a Puka dog. Ice cream from Lapperts was delicious. Make sure to see the Sprouting Horn blowhole. Day trip to Waimea canyon a must. If near Kapaa try the Tege Tege shaved ice!

A spacious clean two bedroom condo, near the beach and Poipu shopping Center. Beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed a relaxing family holiday and hope to return again. Appreciate Stephen's call when we arrived.

Stellar location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place, it was literally steps from 2 great beaches. Stephen was super helpful and even figured out how to store our luggage on the last day so that we could enjoy the day.
