We were very excited to come to Po'ipu and we really wanted to love our stay in 511 Nihi Kai. But after many calls to the management, the best we can do is warn others: stay somewhere else. The listing for a 3 bedroom is extremely misleading. The "third bedroom" is next to the living room separated by blinds instead...

Aloha David, We assume you are the party in house now as the name is different, but this is a very popular unit and have had nothing but positive comments so we are sorry you are disappointed. We respectfully disagree with the description “unresponsive” as we dealt with both your issues timely and as fast as possible. We had the...

The location was fantastic, directly across from the ocean. The grounds are well maintained and very attractive. Plenty of parking. The unit was well stocked with all the necessities and very spacious. It does however need some updating of the carpets that were stained and some repairs to the screen doors that kept coming off the tracks. Overall it was...

You can literally walk so many places! They had a pool (mostly for kids) but I never used it. I can walk to the public beach, and all the hotels from here. Several restaurants within walking or a very short drive. It's pretty quiet here and I was up on the hill so I got a lovely view of the...

Although the stair climb is a bit daunting with luggage, the updated 2-bedroom, 2-bath and 2 lanai suite is a lovely, amply stocked abode for a get-away to the Garden Island. The view of the sunset over Poipu Beach from the lanai is picture perfect, even for the professional photographer in the family. Pack lightly: the condo comes equipped with...

This is one of the few units that has AC. It's actually just in the master bedroom but they provide plenty of fans and it cooled down enough at night we didn't really need the AC. The unit was spacious and had games and toys for the kids (as well as stuff for the beach, which is a 10 minute...

Decent 2-story condo; really minimal ocean view visible only when standing from one far corner of the balcony. Too far from the ocean to hear the ocean sounds in the bedrooms. Furnishings were ok but getting tired and old. TV in master is the size of a laptop - really small! TV upstairs in living area is good sized. Essentials...

A wonderful 3 bedroom condo occupying 1st (ground) and second floors with 3 bathrooms and a great balcony for watching the sunset. Snorkeling, body boards and folding chairs provided. Lovely on site facilities (pool, BBQ & tennis court) set in beautiful gardens. A lovely 5 min stroll to Poipu Beach Park.

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Nihi Kai Villa #300 for several days in July. Our experience from the time of making our reservation with the Parrish Collection until the (sad) time of our departure was exceptional. The villa is in a wonderful, central yet quiet, location along the ocean at Poipu Beach. The lush floral...

We've stayed here twice and this time came back with a big family group. This is an awesome place, professionally managed by the Parrish Collection, which offers a great value for vacationers. We have experienced units 100, 401, 402, and 421. All have wonderful ocean views and are clean and comfortable. Here, you get a spacious condo, a nice pool,...

Great proximity to beach but no air conditioning and stifling conditions. Couldn't sleep for some of the very hot nights there. We pulled down the verandah blinds but it didn't help. Space in 1 bedroom unit was good. Bed was very comfortable.Bathroom needs an upgrade and smelly shower curtain needed replacing.

Aloha Yambaby, Mahalo for taking the time to review Nihi Kai. We agree, it is a great location. We are sorry it was warmer during your stay as the trades were lighter than usual. It can get warm, especially in late summer or early fall, but we do our best to provide fans and most times it is short lived....
