Re: Bamboo Jungle House BED & BREAKFAST
Recently I returned from a trip to KAUAI and had stayed at THE BAMBOO JUNGLE HOUSE.
PROS: The proprietors/owners are pleasant and accommodating with booking reservations and other inquiries. The room is clean and nicely decorated. The property is well landscaped, neat, and tidy.
CONS: This B & B is located on a busy traffic route, even though the location is quite rural. There is a neighbours' dog who barks at all hours. AND, of course, there are the roosters!
I mention the roosters as these are plentiful throughout the island and crow anytime during the day or night - but especially at 5 o'clock in the morning. Naturally, the owners of the B & B cannot be held responsible for the roosters. Ear plugs are provided in the room. However, for me, these were ineffective. The windows are a "Venetian-blind style" so that even with these fully closed, the sound of the roosters could not be blocked out. I realize that the roosters are just being roosters. BUT if you wish to "sleep in" during your holidays, perhaps it would be best to check out the hotels in the area that have different kinds of windows which close tightly - preferably double-paned glass - and heavy draperies . . . or be prepared to be awake at 5:00 EVERY morning.
Breakfast is served ONLY and SHARPLY at 8:00 in the morning. If a more flexible schedule is wanted/needed, other accommodations in the area allow that flexibility for breakfast/brunch.
Also, there are jacks but no telephones in the rooms. The nearest phone - other than asking the owners to use theirs - is at a phone booth about a mile from the B & B.
Finally, the walls/ceilings between the rooms are thin. Conversations will be - and are - heard.
BOTTOM LINE: This location is for "early risers only."
