Our stay at the Bamboo Garden Studio was fantastic. It was a quiet little house with everything we needed. It felt secluded and private and a little more rugged than a hotel room but still with all the amenities. The outdoor shower was awesome and the bed was very comfortable. We loved eating breakfast across the street at Kalalea Juice Hale. The location was perfect for the north shore and close to Kapaa. We had short little trip to Kauai and staying here really enhanced the experience.
We had a great time at Aurora's place. The location was perfect for easily getting to both the north and south sides of the island. The studio felt very spacious and was clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor shower should not be a concern (as it initially was for me), it's very private and there is a curtain. We would definitely stay here again!
This place was just perfect for our stay in Kauai. It's location between the north and south of the island makes it easy to do round trip to any place in a same day. The house was clean, the bed comfortable and you have anything you need for the beach as well. I was happily surprised by the outdoor shower and how private it was. The only thing that was hard at first was the to hear the loud roosters early in the morning. But overall everything was great.
Staying at the Bamboo Garden was really a joy. Aurora was very communicative, generous, and helpful with local tips. We felt very welcome and loved the (email hidden)pecially the beautiful outdoor shower and private deck. And all the beach toys, including 2 beach cruisers, were so great. Anahola beach is just a short bike ride down a quiet road and we loved going there in the early morning for dip. I can't think of a thing I would want to change about the Bamboo Garden....just what we were looking for!
Overall the place has a quaint yoga studio feel with a beautiful sky light shining down on stained woodwork with a bamboo/Japanese style. Has an outdoor shower and open air bathroom. Little hick up with the propane for the on demand hot water heater but that was quickly resolved by switching tanks. Overall a good experience.
Our stay in Anahola was pleasant and easy. The spot has a nice private back patio and Aurora hooked us up with most everything we needed. A good middle-ground spot between Kapa'a and the north shore. Seriously awesome juice bar across the street too. Recommended.
If you are looking for a rustic, local experience on Kauai, Anahola is the place for you. Aurora was a great host and helped us out whenever we needed it. The location of the Bamboo Garden Studio gave us everything we needed for our trip to Kauai and the suite was ideally located for us to explore the whole island. As mentioned in the write-up, you are staying in a jungle here, so expect critters - we had a friendly gecko and other living things to contend with, but that was all part of being there. The outdoor shower was wonderful and the deck at the back gets the morning sun - perfect for relaxing with a fresh juice or smoothie from the juice stand across the road. If you stay here, we would suggest a rental vehicle. Plan you days well, though, especially if you are driving south: there tends to be traffic jams between Kapaa and Wailua (commuter traffic heading into Lihue). Leaving early in the morning (8-ish) makes a big difference.

I am so happy to share this wonderful space with you.
I have recently taken over this wonderful home and look forward to having you come. I grew up half here on Kauai and half in NYC. I felt that Kauai, after living in many places around the world, was the only place to have my daughter grow up with a foundation of nature and community.
I have been a Chef for 20 yrs specializing in organic and local cuisine, special diets and allergies. Healthy living has been been my passion through out my life and I love sharing it.
Our location is perfect for seeing all of Kauai's abundance from North to South.
Let me help you find all that you are looking for whether its hiking, surfing, massage and spa treatments, or helicopter rides. There are so many great and talented people here on this incredible island.
We welcome you to come share this amazing place we call home and make it your home away from home.
Mahalo & may your life be filled with abundance and joy.
