I've been to Kauai four times before, but the spaciousness, charm, comfort and convenience of 17 Palms made this the best visit there yet. We could get anywhere on the island with ease, and the number of cool spots to explore within a walk or a short drive was endless. We barbecued nearly every night to take advantage of the... More

I was wanting a nice place to stay for a combination anniversary and birthday trip for my wife. I did not want the stereotypical "hotel" but something a little more private and simple. 17 Palms Kauai ticked all the boxes. The location on the East side made us equidistant from both ends of the highway. The construction of the cottage... More

Cool, comfortable, well-equipped cottage. Hip decor, quality furnishings (awesome bed), lots of thoughtful extras. Location was super convenient if you want to explore the whole island as we did. We took a heli flight from Lihue airport; hiked trails from the Kalalau Look out and along the Napali Coast; swam near Kekaha, Hanalei Bay, and Kapaa; kayaked along the northeast... More

It was out first time renting a house through VRBO and my first time in Kauai. I could not have asked for a better experience. This sweet cottage is in a great central location to the north and south of the island. The cottage is lovely- we were greeted with a bowl of fruit and fabulous guide books that really... More

We stayed in the Meli Meli cottage for 4 nights. The cottage is furnished with everything you might need. It is done with nice and warm colors. For us it felt like a little home. The welcome we received was absolutely great, some drinks in the fridge, fresh fruit from the garden and also a phone call from the owners... More

Hale Iki was the best little vacation cottage we could ask for -- from a convenient location just off the beach in Kapa'a to the full kitchen to the lanai and onsite laundry to the soft, comfy bed linens and towels and beach equipment. And the location couldn't be beat -- it's a 10 min drive from LIH and it's... More

We enjoyed staying @ Hale Iki cottage for 5 nights in early April. The cottage was clean, comfortable, aesthetic, and well equipped. Jeff and Ross were very helpful. The location made it easy to get to the North and South shores. Hukilau Lanai, Caffe Coco, and Passion Bakery Cafe are good restaurants a short walk away. And, my botanist wife,... More

We were very fortunate to stay in the Meli Meli cottage for 12 nights @ the beginning of March. When asked where we were staying by other island visitors we replied," oh @ the cutest little cottage in Kapaa". The location is great to explore all areas of the island, with grocery stores, pharmacies & numerous restaurants all within walking... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during the last two nights of our trip in Kauai and it was absolutely lovely. I wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, farmers market, and shops. It had everything we needed or could possibly think of. Jeff and Ross were very helpful and quick... More
