We stayed at the Tropical Bamboo Hideaway in July. We LOVED it!!! The home is lovely, just like the photos on the website and it's fascinating, one of the first Bamboo homes to be built on Kauai - while we there people kept stopping to take photos of it.
The location was perfect- just across the road from a beautiful beach and it was great being able to go across the road to the local Coffee house in the morning if we felt like it for latte and the best bagels.... We also had dinner at the Mediterranean Gourmet, also just across the road from the house, great mediterranean food with an ocean view while you dine.
We had a great time at Tunnels and Kee beaches, just 5 minutes away and we enjoyed the short drive along the gorgeous beach road into pretty Hanalei (don't miss the sushi at Sushi Blues! )
If you scuba, the dive tour place right at the first driveway for Tunnels was great, especially the night dive. Being 5 minutes from a clean bed and a hot shower made it really easy to dive there as much as 4 times a day. Exploring the inner reef is pretty fun, but then the outer reef once I got familiar was incredible, including the cleaning station! You could walk it in 10-15 minutes if you weren't dragging gear with you.
The house was absolutely clean on our arrival and we had everything we needed. There's a little store in Wainiha halfway in between the house and Hanalei.
It was really nice being up in the cool breeze and I absolutely loved the views from the lanai. I really liked it far better than the 'developed' places in Princeville, although the golfing is unbelievable at http://www.princeville.com/golf.html.
We have been recommending Tropical Bamboo Hideaway to all our friends - we hope to come back next year, this time, more in the wintery months.
