This Bamboo for Two Cottage is the perfect alternative to an expensive hotel room in Poipu Beach.
Located near the road's end in a quiet and private rural residential section of Kalaheo, this 600 square ft. one bedroom tropical island cottage offers peace and quiet, beautiful ocean views, and all the comforts of home for a great price!

A queen bed
Full Bath with shower
Beach Chairs and towels

There is also a secluded beach that is a short hike from the cottage which is very private and a good place to be alone in the sun.
The location of Kalaheo is perfect for the Kauai traveler who wants to be in a central area where the rest of the island can be easily accessed. The nearby town of Kalaheo has several good restaurants and a market and is adjacent to the island's main highway.
Kalaheo is only a short 10 minute's drive to the beaches of Poipu which offers everything you would expect to find in a 4 star resort area - Golf courses, shopping, restaurants, Sunset sailing, Snorkeling or just sunning on The Travel Channel's #1 Beach in America - Poipu!

The property has shutter blinds, and the windows are not completely sealed which essentially leaves the place open to whatever can craw in between the blinds even if you do close them. We stayed here for 5 days during our honeymoon. We ended up sleeping in the car because there were geckos living inside the property and crawling in and out all day and night long. When we first arrived, there was gecko/bird poop all over the bedspread and pillows, it was cleaned, but the geckos remained. Not what you want to deal with when you are on your honeymoon. The place also did not feel clean, the fake plants have caked on dust and there are plenty of places for the geckos to hide-behind the fridge, on the straw window overhangs, on the bamboo walls. They are everywhere camouflaged in. If you are comfortable with waking up to a geckos over your head, then stay here. Otherwise, go elsewhere. The owners only refunded us one night. For having to sleep in the car, it should have been the entire 5 days.
The cottage is next to the owners' home in the charming tropical garden. Ocean is visible at some distance.
The cottage is very comfortable. It includes an outdoor porch. There is even an outdoor shower if you choose to shower under the stars.
The owners are very cool and helpful.
Close to western beaches, Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park. Perfect to avoid crowds.
The overall experience is wonderful and highly recommended.
Having been to Kauai many times, this is my favorite place to stay. Tucked away surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers it feels like a home away from home. Clean & comfortable! Well thought out & stocked with beach chairs, beach towels etc. Just a short drive from Poipu we spent many sunny February days laying out at the Sheraton and Shipwrecks beaches. Every morning my husband made us breakfast that we would enjoy on the lanai, with fresh squeezed OJ from the many fruit stands we found along the way to the cottage. Showering in the bamboo outdoor shower everyday is something I truly miss! I am already counting the days until we can return to this lovely cottage, my home away from home! Bamboo for Two hosts Susan & Steven were great. Available for recommendations on activities & places to eat still giving us our privacy. We even spent an evening watching whales from their lanai enjoying a glass of wine together. We had many fantastic meals just minutes away at the Kalaheo Cafe, one of my favorite spots to eat on the island! This was a lovely relaxing vacation I will not forget, Mahalo!
Our second stay at the Bamboo Cottage in 6 months. After our 1st stay in December my wife and I vowed to return, how lucky we were to be able to come back so soon. The Bamboo Cottage is a great, comfortable place to relax, but also a great location to use as a base camp to explore all that Kauai has to offer. We're not sure we can be back in another 6 months, but left a lot of adventure, and relaxing, to do during our next stay.
We spent a few days at the Bamboo Cottage over New Year's. Great basecamp for exploring Kauai from one end to the other. But our favorite parts of the day were waking up and having a cup of coffee on the lanai in the morning and returning in the evening and relaxing with a beverage as we recounted the day's adventures. We will be back, definitely for more than a few days.
My husband and I visited Kauai for our honeymoon and stayed a this cottage, and I'm so glad we did! It was so wonderful to come home after a busy day of snorkeling and exploring to relax on the lanai. We really felt at home during our stay. Toward the end of our week, tropical storm Flossie was hitting the big island and moving toward us. The owner was kind enough to call and make sure we were prepared in case of an emergency and to let us know she would provide us with accomodations in case our flights were delayed. That was so nice to see that she cared. Since we have a toddler and are now expecting another baby, it may be a while before we are able to stay at this cottage again, but we hope to again someday, and we highly recommend it to others. Mahalo for the wonderful home away from home!
