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

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

It was homey, comfortable, quiet, very well equipped and generally the perfect beach cottage. We had all the cooking gear and beach toys anyone could want. Jeff and Ross were great hosts and kept us informed of... More

We booked Hale Iki Cottage at 17 Palms because we wanted a taste of Hawaiian living away from the resort style of accommodation and somewhere that was located in a central location for touring. Hale Iki Cottage was perfect; cool and comfortable, interesting décor, close to the beach and shopping. We could have easily stayed and relaxed at the cottage... More
