About Jessica Burroughs Baptiste
I am a California native from Los Gatos. I fell in love with Kauai when I first visited in 2011. I am well traveled, but there was always something that pulled me back to Kauai. It is magical! I visited many times for extended periods and I made a decision to buy Bamboo Hale and make it my vacation home. In the process, I met my local boy husband, Steven, and have now made Kauai my permanent home. I am so happy to share Bamboo Hale with you! I hope you fall in love with this Garden Isle, too!

Why Jessica Burroughs Baptiste chose Princeville
Paniolo is very centralized in Princeville. It within walking distance to everything. Located just off the Anini Beach Path, you can step out your door and enjoy a 15 minute walk to the beach. 10 minute walk to the Westin if you want to enjoy Starbucks, Nanea or a cocktail at the pool bar. 15 Minute walk to Queen's Bath Trail and avoid the hassle of parking! 15-20 minute walk to St. Regis where you can dress up at the Makana Terrace or wear your bikini at the beach. 10 minute walk to Princeville Center to grocery shop at Foodland, eat at CJ's, or the other restaurants, grab a Mai Tai at Tiki Iniki, and a nice bottle of wine from DaKine Wine. Post office, Bank, shaved ice, the center has it all! Hop in your car and drive 10 minutes down the hill to Hanalei or take public transit to avoid parking!

Bamboo Hale aka Rooster Heaven
Paniolo is a great little enclave of residents and visitors alike, all very friendly and welcoming. I love the north end of the island; shopping and entertainment are close enough to satisfy one's needs; an important feature since driving to other parts of the island can be problematic at times. The pool at Paniolo was great by my standards, I thoroughly enjoyed using it. I have to admit that the plethora of roosters in the eucalyptus trees drove me just a little nuts in the wee hours of the morning. I'll be sure to bring ear plugs next time!
Bamboo Hale itself could use a little attention: the rear screen door is problematic, lock on slider rudimentary (although it doesn't seem to matter), kitchen items a bit scant (I borrowed a baking pan to make enchiladas one night, kitchen scissors would be apprreciated). Yes, there is television and I didn't even care that there weren't a lot of channels (local coverage was fun to watch) but I would have LOVED to have a channel guide. Even though it's old school, I also love to listen to local radio stations and to have access to a CD player, thus having such a device accessible would be great.
Jessica was lovely, responsive and accommodating and, I believe, is really trying of doing a good job of hosting guests at Bamboo Hale. Mahalo!!
We had a great stay!
As a family of 4 we were very comfortable for our week long stay. The Aloha spirit of our neighbors and new local friends was truly heartwarming and inspiring. Jessica is a fantastic owner and very attentive. Mahalo!
Cute Condo in Princeville
This condo is on the second floor. It is cute, quite comfortable and the kitchen is adequate.The loft twin bed was comfortable and worked well for my adult friend however the loft and loft stairs would not be conducive for a young child. It is a great location, just walking distance to Princeville center in which Foodland is located. They have a good selection of prepared food, desserts as well as all of your groceries needs. Hanalai is only 10 minutes away by car. Two (2) miles down the road from the condo is St Regis, a beautiful hotel and a great place to watch the sunset, have a drink and enjoy a local show. Although there is only valet parking, it is available free of charge but a tip is expected.
Yes, you will hear the roosters which is part of the charm of the island and you will hear some traffic. If your neighbors are noisy then you will hear them as well. Overall it is a nice place in which to visit the North side of the island.
Great location and great owners
We really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was clearly outlined in the initial paperwork/email. She made it very easy. We came in 2 days before our stay and she texted to make sure we made it ok. She also offered to move us to another one of her rentals because the condo next door was having a bathroom remodel. We decided we would stay there anyway and never really noticed the construction next door as we were mostly gone during the day. I would definitely stay again.
great location, great upkeep, so-so space
We only stayed in this condo unit for a couple of nights. On the plus side, it's very convenient to all of the north shore - hop skip and a jump from Hanalei, for example. Kithcen was well stocked with everything you'd need. Also, the unit was very clean and the information supplied was clear and everything went absolutely smoothly. So as far as location and how the property is maintained and communicated, everything as fantastic.
Unfortunately the space itself had a few significant drawbacks from our point of view. As a married couple we stayed in the big bed but since it's pushed up against one well I had to clamber out the foot of the bed to visit the restroom in the middle of the night. Also, the couch in the sitting area was very uncomfortable - we ended up improvising our own lounge area using a couple of chairs and and ottoman. Lastly, the unit is very "open" in the sense that even with all the louver windows closed there was still a fair amount of airflow and noise from outside. The pluses of this were gentle breeze and hearing wind, crickets etc; the down side was that things could get chilly and boy could you hear those roosters when they got going at early AM!
So - a mixed bag from our point of view. Nothing really "wrong" with it, but it didn't really work that well for us overall. I think with a little updating and rethinking the furniture it could become a truly wonderful unit.
Cozy Kauai Getaway!
This place was perfect for our needs. The property has a very tropical / beach feel to it. There is a great breeze that blows in at all times and lots of windows which make it very comfortable. The balcony especially gets a nice breeze and has a nice garden feel to it. The bed is super comfy and the kitchen is large & perfect for cooking. All of the beach gear was an added plus, and Jessica's recommendations and welcome letter were both awesome. We used the recommendations to help us plan a few activities and everything was top notch. Thank you so much. Highly recommended if you're looking for a couple's getaway and don't need a ton of space. The place is very peaceful and relaxing, and is in close proximity to many locations including St Regis, HBR, golfing, and the beaches. Wish we could have stayed longer!
