... to talk the girls into not swimming in the ocean but it was one of the few arguments we’ve encountered on the trip. Perhaps the day was a bit stressful and disappointing but the girls refused to give up on their last beach day here – even if it meant swimming in the rain. In fact, that was their strong point. They wanted to swim in the rain.
When we arrived at our special alcove, even the lifeguard had packed up ...
Bananas are classified as an herb. We went to our VIP Luau tonight in the rain but it was still good. I tried Pou, a traditional sauce which taste like a bland refried bean. The guide said most people don't like it when they try it but I didn't mind. It tastes like whatever you put it on. Then the show started. It was supposedly the best luau on the islands. The fire dance was unique because the use both ...
... floor. The valley is more “v” shaped and filled with the same colors and crevasses that mark the sides of the canyon. Small whirling helicopters appear as large birds circling below us. They seem so vulnerable. I knew of a family once who lost their daughter and new son-in-law in a helicopter accident on this site. The wind shifts seem unpredictable and viewing here, both now and last trip, offered a sadness from the memory.

Eagles-Dallas Football game for the playoffs. So we are back in the condo by 3:30 p.m. our time. (8:30 p.m. back home.) Great game though we all felt bad for the quarterback on Dallas’ side who threw the mistake. The Eagles made their own mistakes too but it’s hard to have a game seemingly decided on one slight error. Especially a game that ends ...

We wanted to speak to her dad, but too many people were talking to us, and he left before we had a chance. What an inspiration she is; ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bamboo Jungle House Kalaheo
Wonderful B&B (disregard any comments prior to Sept 2004, The New Owners Are The Best Hosts You Can Wish For)
The Bamboo Jungle House with its new owners (Lucy & Terry) HAS to be the best B&B on the island!!! It is extremely clean (and we talk of experience it is not easy to find on the island...) the rooms are very nicely decorated in the local style, the welcome is extremely warm and the delicious breakfast by Cook Terry is quickly going to be famous! Add to that picture very romantic spa, pool and lush garden...and look at the very reasonable prices... We just loved it!!!
Warm, welcoming, witty, flexible, and fun. Those are just a few of the words that describe the Bamboo Jungle House's new owners/operators. From the first phone call to make arrangements to the very last "aloha", this was a B&B experience that just can't be beat.
Date of Stay: November 28 - December 6, 2004
My husband and I had the pleasure of being the first guests of the new owners at the Bamboo Jungle House. We stayed for our honeymoon in November 2004. The moment we walked into the door, we were transported into our own secret hideaway. We stayed in the Waterfall Suite for five days, and we couldn't have been more pleased! Terry and Lucy Ryan are the new owners, and you couldn't ask to meet anyone nicer. They have just purchased the B&B from previous owners, and they have redone all the rooms. The Suite had been freshly decorated and was very clean. Lucy and Terry continually went our of their way to make us feel welcome. Every morning, they made us a full breakfast to start our day, and they were always on hand to help us find a hidden beach or the wonderful soap and candle shop in Koloa. Make sure that you don't miss out on the wonderful waterfall hot tub! It was wonderful after a long day! I knew that if we stayed in a hotel room, we would have minimal privacy, and we wanted somewhere that we could relax and enjoy being together with no real timetable to follow. I was so pleased to find the Bamboo Jungle House and my husband and I would recommend it to anyone. We already have tenative plans to return for our two year anniversary for a longer stay!
Website is misleading
Stayed here around Christmas ----Website is very misleading. No !! Ocean View anywhere!!!Hosts had minimal personality beyond , what we felt , was their labored greeting at arrival.House is in a busy local neighborhood-----get ready for a heavy dose of traffic noise, especiially early mornings and evening and nights on the weekend. Lousy value for the money!!!Would not stay here again!
We recently returned from our trip to Hawaii- though we loved the island of Kauai, the B&B left alot to be desired. We have stayed at other B&B's in New York state and have gotten alot more for our money. For starters, the breakfast is ONLY fruit that they give you the first day ! We stayed for 5 nights and that is all we got. We did not get new towels or linens and the room was never cleaned. Actually, the room was pretty dirty when we got there -there were ants along the walls. The owners were only there 2 nights to turn on the hot tub for us and were never around during the day. We only saw them once during the 5 days - the day we arrived. It seems to me that they do more than just run the B&B. There is no "ocean view" from anywhere either - the trees and shrubbery are all too tall. It is located on a very busy residential street with alot of traffic and roosters. It is located about 15 minutes from Poipu and a few minutes to any major roads. We were disappointed by the experience and should have spent alittle more money to stay at the one of the resorts in Poipu. If you are JUST looking for a roof over your head and a place to crash, this B&B will suffice. We wish we would have done more research before booking our trip.
The Waterfall Suite was the most romantic place I've ever stayed.!
Waking up to the sound of the waterfalls was heaven! The other reviews here are so untrue! We found Doug & Judy to be so helpful and the perfect hosts who attended to our every need. We're planning to go back next year! Debra Silverman
Musty down below
The hospitality of the hosts left ALOT to be desired. We felt that the rooms lacked a comfort level we have experienced elsewhere for similar prices. The downstairs room had a particularly "musty" feel to it. Definitely looked better on the website than in real life! Rate 3-4 out of 10
What planet are these people from?
Beautiful property but these owners lack any warmth and felt as if we were interfering with their life. Isn't a Band B all about sharing your home. And they call breakfast a very soft papaya annd make your own coffee. Really cold and distant proprietors. Too busy to care. Felt like we were a burden when asking about things to do or directions.
Wheres the beef?
The Bamboo Jungle House was a wonderful place to stay. The owners are very nice and warm people. The pool is fabulous and the fountain captavating. The bedrooms warm and inviting. All in all our stay at the Jungle House was wonderful. But...a bowl of fruit does not a breakfast make.
