Location is superb!

  • 4 of 5

House was nice and met our family needs. Creative A- frame construction w rooms having no ceilings. It is part of compound w owner and another renter on property. Nothing beats falling asleep and waking up to crashing waves....and w easy access to beach and tide pools and lawn for family play all added to our enjoyment.

Stunning Waterfront House

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property! The location is quiet and right on the beach. The beach is a combination of sand reef, swimming hole and surf beach. Amenities of the property were comfortable and as expected. The large front porch is an amazing location to watch surfers and whales. We will definitely return.

Incredible...Amazing...Time of our lives

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this place justice. Simply beautiful. We got married here in 2012. The setting is like something you find on a postcard. The property is well taken care of and the location can't be beat. The owner, Tony, is a good dude. Maybe a little over bearing at times, but all in all a good guy. We did get a slight hassle from a state inspector, but it sounds like that situation has been resolved.

If you are looking for a quiet vacation off of the beaten path, look no further. We can't wait to get back! Whales, dolphins, turtles, seals and amazing tropical fish....see it all here. Surfing just steps from your door...a large lawn...and an incredible property await you.

i have stayed 3 times at the bamboo estate. twice to attend my grandsons hs graduations and once with the wife for a month. there is no better place to stay. we have had family on island since 1976 and I know it well. everything is perfect. clean, well maintained and equipped . great for families as beach , beals pool and the huge lawn are tops. nearby fast food joints and lots of local resturants. two local grocery stores . you got to try the Hawaiian poke. nearby army rec center is nice for a cold drink at sunset , foods good too. lond drug store has about all you may need for stocking up on shacks, drinks too. try l and l bbq in town. good daily plate lunches. take a whale watching tour out of local harbor. we plan on returning in 2014 for sure. aloha.

Peaceful Hawaiian Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Many times a property does not live up to the pictures that are posted on-line or in a brochure, but the Bamboo Compund was truly as gorgeous as it looked on-line. The property exceeded our expectations! Rose and Tony are the most gracious and generous of hosts - Tony took time to show our son all the wonderful things he could do from swimming in the tidal pool to body boarding at the beach. One could not ask for better hosts.

The sandy beach is a perfect place to feel the sand between your toes, have a picnic or enjoy a bonfire on a cool Hawaiian night.

The Bamboo Compound is such a peaceful, clean and comfortable place to get away from the world. I think it is a better reflection of Hawaii and the Hawaiian life-style than Honolulu as it gives one a chance to relfect in quiet while sitting on the lanai watching the sun rise or set. As we were there in early March, we were thrilled to see a few whales pass by. Each morning as we had our coffee outside, we watched the surfers at Makaha Beach ride the waves or use their paddle boards. The entire property was even better than described, the owners are exceptional people and provided for all our needs.

If you dream of a vacation where you can fall asleep each night to the sound of the pounding surf, wake up to beautiful sunrises, relax on a lanai watching whales and surfers in a place that is absolutely stunning, then the Bamboo Compound is where you want to be!

Not only do I recommend this house to everyone traveling to Hawaii, we definitely plan to return some day. Just walking through the gate is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and melt away all your stress....

Thank-you, Rose and Tony for providing our family such a wonderful experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
