We enjoyed our stay in Kapaa...the apt was a nice size and decorated with a lovely island theme. It felt very homey and was located in a great area...close to everything you could need or want. The unit is a little close to the street but it didn't affect our sleep or stay. Kauai is definitely the garden island...a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sun. So happy we picked this unit and we look forward to returning to Hawaii!
We had a great stay at Valerie's - very easy check in and so close to the beach and shops!
My family and I loved staying at BambuHale. The location is very close to the major East Side attractions AND close to shopping. Having a separate bedroom and main area meant my wife and I could enjoy our evenings while our daughter slept. The lanai was very relaxing.
Laundry came in double handy.
It was great time on Kauai! Apartman was absolutly perfect... Clean and with everything what you need... Also very good location. Thank you Valerie!
Never got to actually meet Valerie, but she was available by voice and text messages. The place was great except for a couple of problems. It was clean, comfortable, had everything we needed including in the kitchen though we didn't do anything elaborate there.
Problems were that one of the air conditioners was broken and there was an intermittent electrical problem that blacked out half the unit including the living room and bedroom sometimes for hours on end. The electrical outages were repaired after several days and were more than a major annoyance. The AC was not repaired due to difficulty getting parts. Valerie said it would be repaired in January. Fortunately the weather cooled so we got by. Also a minor issue was that we had to visit the desk twice because our key cards were inexplicably deactivated twice.
The location was great for our needs as it is as central as you can get on Kauai. I would recommend checking on the two problems we had before booking, but other than that it's great!
BambuHale exceeded even our very high expectations after reading all the previous positive reviews. Seamless check-in and check-out, a kitchen more fully stocked than my own, walking distance to shops, right next to groceries, short drive from multiple restaurants and a quick hop to the ocean.
The place is clean and perfectly set up for guests, with towels, shower stuff, beach stuff and bag, and books on Hawaii to help you learn a little something during your stay. There is tons of free parking, so it was never an issue. And no noise from neighbours or the road. I would recommend BambuHale to anyone going to Kauai!
We enjoyed our stay at BambuHale. Valerie was great at providing everything we needed. I was in contact with her a few times before and during our stay. She answered all my questions and accommodated my requests. The accommodations were excellent, a home away from home. One of the many pools is right next to the condo. I especially enjoyed the short walk to the beach each morning for spectacular sunrise. The location is convenient to many restaurants and shopping. Be sure to check out the farmer’s market on Tuesday at the Coconut Market Place up the street on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings for fresh fruit and vegetables.

I live and work in Kapaa on the East Side of the island of Kauai. I hope you 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.
