  • I've stayed in BambuHale for 9 days in the beginning of May 2014. Location is great since the place is 15 minutes away from Lihue airport and 1.5 hour away from any any distant point either on the west or central side of the island. Apartment was clean and has everything we need for us and our baby. Checking in was easy. Valerie was very kind to let us in before check-in hour.

    There is a beach 2 minutes away where you can take wonderful pictures of sunrise. Also there are many great places to eat in the walk distance from the apartment complex.

  • Stayed here in april. Place was very clean. Check in was easy. Good hub to go all over the island. The coconut marketplace next door is being renovated- so not much there. Wahooo restaurant was delicious down the street. Check in gave us a foodland card that gives you 10% off groceries- wish we would have checked in first. There are beach towels and snorkels and even an ice chest (we used for drinks when driving around). Full kitchen- everything you need. Plenty of towels. iPhone 5 docking station which was very nice. Overall great stay to explore kauai. Would stay again!

  • Thanks so much for sharing your cute kauai condo with us! We had a really great time. My only complaint is that it was too short....next time I'm staying for a month! The location was great and Valerie was very helpful and always called me back right away. This was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't have been better!
    Mahalo!

  • Great place! We had everything we needed during our stay: comfy bed, well-stocked kitchen, and a nicely decorated condo. The place is very close to the beach and walkable to several restaurants, which was nice for days where we didn't feel like driving somewhere. One thing I would recommend is to request a room on the beach side. Our room was on the road side of the property and we could consistently hear traffic.

  • Perfect and fully furnished condo! Easy check-in an check-out at the concierge.
    The place is very comfortable e iper furnished: think of one thing that you might need? there is!!!
    It's perfect to explore Kauai due to it's central position and, because there's everything you could need, you have only to focus on the trails and the places you want to visit.
    I recommend it to all.

  • The suite we rented suited our needs. The area is conveniently located on the island of Kauai in the city of Kapaa. The beach was about a 3 minute walk away. There are a couple grocery stores very close by as well as restaurants. The suite itself had convenient amenities. We used the kitchen which had everything we needed to prepare meals. My only suggestion would be directed at the owners of the resort and that would be to upgrade the internet. It was slower than I would have expected. If this does not bother you though, then you should be fine booking BambuHale. Thank you!

  • My husband, infant son, and I truly enjoyed our stay at BambuHale!

    It is in a great location close to the Coconut Market (which is currently undergoing major renovations and turnover so many shops are closed). There is a great farmers' market on Tuesday and Thursday mornings where you can buy delicious fresh fruit. It is also a short drive to many other places to eat and shop in either direction. As a family with a baby, we loved being so close to Lydgate Park, a family friendly beach with a great playground. We also took advantage of renting bikes and completing the 4.5 mile beach ride where we saw whales and dolphins.

    The condo was nicely decorated with a relaxed beach theme. It had all of the amenities you could need and a great kitchen in which to cook. It was easy to make it baby-friendly, too.

    Thank you for sharing your condo with us Valerie!

  • Aloha Valerie,

    We would like to thank you for this wonderful Kauai exeprience we could live thanks to you.

    The suite is wonderful. Bigger than on the photos. Perfect for a couple. The suite was so charming, comfy and clean (we love the tropical blue color).
    You will find all the accessories you'll need to cook, wash, snorkel, sunbath, eat, watch a blueray.

    The hotel complex in which the suite is remain a good point because you will be able to have access to the swiming pool, etc.

    Location is perfect. Can walk to the beach and to the coconut market.

    Hopefully, we will come back. From Paris, France it is a bit far but we never know.

    Mahalo Valerie!!

  • The suite was spacious, spotless and really well equipped and decorated. Communication with Valerie worked perfectly, although we didn't meet in person.

    The only thing that should be communicated more clearly is that this is actually a condo in a largish condo complex, which is something I'm not really that fond of.

  • Valeries BambuHale was perfect for us! The studio offers more than enough space and is very well equipped. Especially the kitchen. Quick check in and great communication with Valerie. We would definitely stay here again.
