It's all about the location at BambuHale. Walk 200 yds to the beach, to restaurants, to world class spas, shopping and farmers market.

Interaction with Guests
This is a private vacation rental that is partially managed by the staff at the Plantation Hale. They will give you your key and direct you to BambuHale. They can also help you with booking any special activities you would like to do or offer restaurant suggestions. I usually have very limited interaction with the guests that stay at BambuHale. However, I want your stay on Kauai to be the best it can be so please let me know if you have any concerns or if something is not working right in the condo or if you need something out of the ordinary and I will do my best to accommodate you.
Great for walking during the day or night. It's in a beautiful area since the ocean is right there you can walk along the beach or take the bike path and explore till your hearts content. This is a safe area, day or night.
Bus stops are located close by and the onsite concierge can give you directions, call a taxi or rental car company for you if needed.
Other Things to Note
Portable crib is available in BambuHale as well as a cooler for the beach and picnics. There is a small fishing rod/reel and a small box of lures if you want to try your luck at fishing! There's a popular local fishing spot about 300 yards from the hale. Plenty of extra linens and bath and beach towels. The laundry room is a few yards away from the front door and laundry detergent is provided for you.

The suite was clean, spacious and comfortable. Centrally located, close to the beach and comfortable.
Valerie's place was ideal for getting to know the island. It is centrally-located and equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay; a full kitchen, beach chairs, towels and guide books. The vintage Hawaiiana decor was fun and tasteful. We were there during a particularly stuffy and humid time of year, so the AC was much appreciated. The staff at Plantation Hale is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend for longer vacations, as the kitchen will allow for cooked meals (saving $ by not eating out) and prepping for all-day adventures. If you need a day of rest, you can hang out in comfort with three pools and hot tubs close by. Only thing that would improve the experience is a beach/mountain view, less traffic noise and closer proximity to down-town Kapa'a. Highly recommend nonetheless.
Great place, as advertised. Convenient location. Condo complex personnel friendly and helpful. A/C a plus. Valerie was very responsive with questions and booking. Will stay at the BambuHale again when visiting Kauai!
This place was nice and felt like home. I loved having a kitchen since I was tired of eating out after a week in Kauai. The listing description was accurate. It was a nice place and after staying at a more formal hotel it was great to be in a place that felt more like home.
Valerie's place was very nice and we enjoyed ourselves! The air conditioning was a nice treat. We cooked a nice meal with her well stocked kitchen. Overall a great experience.
Valerie's place was perfect for our family vacation. She was always very responsive to emails and the accommodations were excellent. I loved the Hawaiian retro theme. She must enjoy decorating! There were all the kitchen items needed so you don't have to eat every meal out and there were plenty of beach towels and toiletries if needed. Our 4 year old would crawl into bed with us in the middle of the night and there was still plenty of room! The pool was lovely and not too crowded. I would definitely recommend her place for an enjoyable trip!
We had a wonderful stay at BabuHale. The location is great - equidistant from North and South Shores, close to the beach, close to restaurants, etc. We rented a car (a must) and drove around the island most days, but we also enjoyed laying low at the apartment because the pools and nearby beaches are great. We would love to return!

About the Host, Valerie
I live and enjoy life in Kapaa on the East Side of the island of Kauai. My wish is for you to enjoy BambuHale as much as I enjoyed decorating it! The decor is a fun mix of vintage and new with many of the items found at Bambulei. Bambulei has moved into a larger location, the world wide web. You can find us (email hidden). Even thought I am not at BambuHale to greet you personally I want you to know that I am only a phone call or text away should you need anything during your respite on Kauai.
