About Jeffrey Dodd

Jeffrey lives in Evanston IL.

Jeffrey Dodd purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jeffrey Dodd chose Poipu

Our first visit to Hawai'i was in January 2005. After a few days on Waikiki we were delighted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Oahu to the peaceful tranquility of Kauai. As luck would have it we couldn't stay at a friend's condo nearby so the management company put us in Building 5 at Nihi Kai. We fell in love. The property is so well maintained; the sound of the birds is indescribable. And at night we'd see the beautiful warm vaulted ceilings of our soon-to be Kauai home. We looked at other resorts, but nothing compared to Nihi Kai.

What makes this condo unique

We spent 113 nights on-island in 2009 so we know just what you need, what you're going to love and how you're going to feel. We also know the one thing you'll not like: leaving. Which is why we call our last day on island the 'saddest day at Nihi Kai'. Hmmm, maybe we should trademark that.

Well stocked, great location

  • 3 of 5

The grounds are beautiful and the unit is stocked with everything you need. I gave it 3 stars because check in was difficult. I did not receive instructions and had to wander the grounds looking for help since no one answered any of the numbers listed on the home away instructions. One of the contacts listed did answer the phone but told me she hadn't managed this condo for awhile and she didn't have the key code anymore. We ended up getting in the unit from the on site manager who wasn't sure if he even had a key. The owner did call me back, but unfortunately it was after all that happened and we were in. I didn't feel like that process was acceptable and I hardly got an apology from the owner, he was kind, but acted like I had received the instructions and said he would send them to me again. I just have an issue with that because all our correspondence is recorded in the message tab of this site and it's pretty easy to see that no detailed check in instructions were sent in the messages until after we checked in. The walls are noticeably in need of some paint and the lighting in the kitchen is pretty bad. Other than that, thw unit is clean and looks as the pictures show it. The location is excellent, easy walking distance to the beach and all amenities on site were wonderful.

I shall return!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had me again, this time with the red Hawaiian sea salt and the immaculate white towels. Yes, I've been to this delightful condo a few times before and happily returned once more to the luxury, comfort, and location this condo provides. But sometimes it's the little things you notice. Such as, I saw the red Hawaiian sea salt. It may have been there before, but it caught my eye as a detail that showed the thought the owner puts into making this a special experience. And, this time I realized the towels are white, as in bright white. How hard is that on an island where it's so hard to avoid tracking in sand and red dirt? Now that takes commitment to making a special environment for your guests. I highly recommend this condo, and maybe I'll see it again someday and find something new to delight me.

Many Advantages

  • 4 of 5

The perfect location for beach and shopping/dining access: a 5-minute walk to some great snorkeling, boogie board, swimming and kiddie beaches, as well as perfect views of sunrises and sunsets; nearby stellar shopping and dining is at most a 10-minute drive away. Going out at dawn was very exciting with lots of turtles and monk seals sleeping up on the beaches. The resort itself has beautiful grounds, very well maintained, and first-rate pool, tennis court and bbq area.

Parking is no problem-they have at least two lots.

The unit itself is as advertised--luxe and fully-appointed and stocked. Plenty of room upstairs, with a very useful kitchen and a largish lanai. Downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms large and not depressing.

There were a few minor repair issues but they were quickly resolved. Very responsive owner and manager.

Why only four stars then? The biggest drawbacks were 1) the back bedroom was too hot (no air conditioning or breeze) even with a new ceiling fan, and, 2) the lanai was hardly private because the neighbors on either side seemed to always be out on their lanais and you could hear every conversation. 3) the walls are thin between units. 4) the bed in one room was great, but the twins in the back bedroom were uncomfortable. 5) the kitchen and other areas didn't have much natural light.

This place has so much going for it though that we'd stay here again, and hope the singing ukulele players aren't in residence next door and that the neighbors are a bit more circumspect. A lot of the problems we had are endemic to staying in a condo complex. We had a very exuberant 18-month-old with us and I'm sure he irritated the neighbors as well.

Beautiful and great location. Felt like home. Nicely decorated and really clean. Very well stocked.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason we didn’t give 5 stars is because we didn’t have that ocean view. But the gardens are really lush and beautiful. For the price we felt our money was well spent and a fair value. Very comfortable and functional accommodations. Walked to beach easily. Had a wonderful vacation. Would definitely book again. Our contact person was very responsive and took very good care to answer questions and resolve any problems.
