We loved our stay at the Palmwood. We stayed in the West Room with a lovely lenai and gorgeous outdoor shower. The rooms were very comfortable and cozy (although un-airconditioned). Breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Eddi and her team have impeccable taste. Every detail has been thoughtfully chosen and it shows. We cannot wait to come back. If you are planning... More

We had a great time here on our honeymoon. The hospitality, friendliness and food were superlative. Every morning we would be surprised by the food that was on offer, and Eddie was happy to cater to my dietary requirements. It's not possible to exaggerate how good of a cook Eddie is. The property desperately needs a pool though. It would've... More

The Palmwood is a unique B&B located in the northern part of Kauai. Because of its private setting, it is very calm and peaceful. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the most amazing part was the waterfall outside our room and the private outdoor shower (don’t worry - there’s also a shower in the bathroom). Each room has a... More

From the moment we arrived we loved the place! We stayed ten nights and the Upper Suite was perfect for us with a very nice balcony and a fantastic view. The breakfasts were delicious, as well as the four course dinner (the best on the whole island)! We also appreciated the recommendations and tips for places to go to -... More

We spent two glorious nights and days at Palmwood and the seclude beaches nearby. The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic and tailored to our gluten free, dairy free dietary needs. Our room was comfortable and quiet cooled by the trade winds. The sound of rooster greets in the morning, but with the time difference compared to the mainland, we were ready... More

We were sold by all the five-star reviews and the Palmwood did not disappoint. The West Room was comfortable and very well appointed with a soothing water feature just outside the bedroom window. If there have been Wifi issues in the past, they’ve been resolved. Eddi’s breakfasts featured omelets with locally-grown mushrooms (by the “Fun Guys”) and an apple-macadamia French... More

One of the most incredible places I have ever stayed. High up on a mountaintop, you cannot beat the view and the remoteness. You literally feel as though you are in paradise here. As other reviewers have noted, the breakfasts from Eddi are legendary. I wanted to know the recipe for everything we had! Definitely not cheap but well worth... More

The Palmwood captured the essence of gorgeous Kauai. Lovely, quiet and serene with comfortable and perfectly restrained furnishings which let you relax and drink in the island beauty. We stayed in the upper suite which was larger, had a king sized bed and incredible view. Great bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi tub. The tub was wonderful after the long... More

Simply a beautiful location! We felt welcomed upon arrival with our names and an arrow directing us to our room. It was the details which made the Palmwood so special. The rooms, decor, landscaping, outdoor area all were so beautifully designed and extremely well thought out. There was an overall sense of peace and calm and we loved the environmental... More

My husband and I spend 3 nights at the Palmwood and we will be back, hopefully this year. Not only is it clean, charming, beautiful, the food is AMAZING! We spent most of our time finding new beaches and seeing the island. When we were not doing that we were longing at the B&B on our private hammock or in... More
