This place was absolutely incredible. Beautiful room, beautiful grounds, delicious food, ideal location...AND YOUR OWN LITTLE HOT TUB!! Plus Mychael was great at giving us recommendations for what to do on the island. While the weather could've been better during our stay, The Palmwood made the trip an incredible experience. I would ONLY recommend staying here to anyone looking to...

My husband and I spent three nights at the Palmwood on our honeymoon, and found it to be perfect in every way. Eddi and Michael made us feel so welcome and pampered. Our room was incredibly comfortable and private--we loved the hot tub, outdoor shower, Tempurpedic bed...everything. Breakfast cannot be missed--Eddi prepares everything with love and local, organic ingredients. We...

How do you review a place when everything about it is just wonderful, but something about it prevents you from sleeping? This 3-star rating is a combination of a 5-star rating for the property, and unfortunately a 1-star rating for our personal "sleep quality" experience. (As a quick aside, it is very painful to not give this place a 5-star...

The Palmwood team pays attention to the details, and it makes all the difference. Food is great. Mychael was so helpful, making sure everything was just right and helping to plan our Kauai experience. Everything was done to please us and make our trip the best possible. We've done resorts and beautiful hotels. If you want a one-of-a-kind experience you'll...

Every part of our visit (5 nights) was fantastic. We had to move rooms because none were available for all 5 nights we were there. We spent 2 nights in the East room, 3 nights in the West. Everything was so well thought out. Each room has quite a bit of privacy (far more than the normal B&B). Breakfasts were...

This place was majestic, the food, service, location and our room was fantastic! We had a personal outdoor hot tub and a shower! Our bed was extremely comfortable, and going into Princeville or Kappa was only a short 15 min drive.

Right as we stepped out of our car we were in awe. The Palmwood is absolutely gorgeous. The place was so peaceful and serene; everything we were looking for in Kaui. My husband and I had wonderful time. The highlight of our day was the delicious breakfast Eddi prepared. Everything was organic and fresh - just amazing. Both Eddi and...

We felt like we had our own little seclusive paradise. Stayed only 2 nights, wish it was longer, but it was a lovely place to cap off our stay in Kauai. Fabulous quiet, mountainous location (just meditate to the confused roosters that surround the valley and crow through the night), with beautiful fairly secluded beaches within minutes. We stayed in...

Our expectations for The Palmwood were high and the place and its hosts more than met them. From personal touches (our names on a chalkboard wishing us aloha as we walked to the door) to thoughtful service throughout our stay, we were made to feel very welcome and at home. Michael greeted us with a warm handshake and shared helpful...

We have been married for a couple years, but with no honeymoon, we will now look to our outstanding stay at The Palmwood as that special time. My wife and I had a most wonderful three days at The Palmwood. Both Eddi and Michael were tremendous hosts and although we had some ideas already in mind, we received some very...
