About This Listing
200 yards from the ocean, easy access to the bike/walking bath, great shopping, groceries and more! Waterfalls only a few miles away, kayaking and fishing, just to name a few activities just minutes from your door.
It's all about the location at BambuHale. Walk 200 yds to the beach, to restaurants, to world class spas, shopping and farmers market. Our spacious accomodations were decorated by Bambulei giving this one bedroom a retro vintage feel of a home by the beach. There is a full kitchen with all the amenities you need. Extra large beach towels and beach chairs are provided just for you. You can choose to swim in any of the three pools located within the property or just relax in the whirlpool spa. Play shuffleboard or ride bikes on miles of ocean front paths. Wifi is available and complimentary, flat screen TV, and iphone/ipod base station (website hidden) unit is located in the main living area of the condo. This is a commercial sized unit that keeps the entire condo comfortably cool day and night (if you need it).

Guests have access to 3 pools, jacuzzi & barbecues. Concierge desk is also available, great shopping, dining and groceries are all within walking distance. Of course the beautiful Pacific Ocean is 200 yards away as well as a beach bike/walking path that goes for miles in either direction.
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.
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 portable 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.

Valerie's place was lovely! We ended up checking in a few hours later than anticipated and she was super understanding about everything. Her guestbook had all of the information we needed about the place and the living room was stocked with recommendations of what to do/see/eat in Kauai.
The listing was exactly as described and our family had a wonderful stay! We loved the decor and having a kitchen and lanai. Being a short walk to the beach was awesome (having beach towels and gear right in the front closet was pretty great too). The place was so comfortable and felt like a home away from home. We rented a car and felt like this was the perfect location between all of the activities we had planned all over the island.
We'll definitely be staying here again next time we're in Kauai!! :)
My last experience with a BnB was left wanting so my choice this time was suspect with my wife and daughter. Boy were they surprised this time. Now I know what it takes to impress the ladies. I can sleep anywhere but they require a certain amount of cleanliness and convenience which the Bambuhale had in spades. Very convenient, clean, safe and beautiful environment. They hit the beach for a surprise sunrise. Sunrises can be beautiful, which this one was, but they were surprised by the Hula show and conch blowing local there on the beach to greet them. I guess they were from a nearby hotel but whose to say? Anyway, thumbs way up for this BnB.
Great place to stay! Wonderful location and beautiful Hawaiian decorated condo. Very comfy and convenient!
Valerie was a great host! She answered all my questions promptly and was accommodating. It was a spacious place with a full kitchen. It had a blender which was so great for our morning fruit smoothies. We even had access to a bbq and pool/jaccuzzi. And despite being located on a busy street and getting loud at night, it was close to many beaches, shops, restaurants and nearby towns. I definitely recommend this place to anyone!

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.
