The Palmwood is a wonderful location to explore the North Coast in a romantic, secluded location! We used this B&B as the perfect place to explore Hanelei, an amazing selection of beaches and the wild Napali Coast. Perched atop the hill we had striking viewa of the surrounding valleys and quiet solitude throughout our stay. Although you can walk (or... More

The Palmwood Inn is a quiet and secluded bed and breakfast for those looking to avoid the crowds and hustle bustle of more typical tourist lodging. We stayed in the West Room (one of the 3 available rooms). The room is small, but there is a spacious private outdoor area including a lanai, hammock, hot tub, outdoor shower, lawn, and... More

Our recent 5-night stay was thoroughly enjoyable. We booked the Palmwood to be near Moloa'a Bay, where our son & wife would be renewing wedding vows on the beach near their seaside rental. The Palmwood is nestled above a small valley close by with mountain views and very peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed the sounds of the birds (even the ubiquitous... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palmwood three nights last week for our honeymoon. We stay at B&Bs with some regularity, so we have a relatively high standard for the service and room. That said, we were blown away by the setting and the food at the Palmwood. This B&B is like something you read in an travel magazine... More

We booked the Palmwood Inn for our honeymoon and we made the right choice. This place is amazing, we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. It's very quiet even if there is another couple in the other room. Having this be the first time to Hawaii we couldn't have asked for a better place. Very close to beaches, towns,... More

The Palmwood was the perfect place to unwind after our destination wedding on the Big Island. It was just what we were looking for - privacy, relaxation, and a unique experience that we probably would not have gotten by staying at a local resort. Eddi is an extremely thoughtful host and it shows in all of the details of the... More

This was our second time at the Palmwood. Two years ago we split our time between The Palmwood and The Grand Hyatt. This year we knew we wanted to stay at The Palmwood the entire time. The location is private. The organic, gourmet breakfasts that Eddi serves each morning are amazing. The accommodations are simple, yet incredibly luxurious. Eddi has... More

We stayed in the west room that had a great private outdoor shower with a lovely water feature and had a wonderful time. The breakfast was unique and yummy and we felt very pampered at the Palmwood. It is in a great location and we loved it.We cannot wait to return!

I suspect that on Trip Advisors sheer numbers count--i.e., the volume of guests might push other lodgings ahead of The Palmwood Inn. But it shouldn't! The privacy, intimacy, and glorious beauty of this place make it stand out head and shoulders above other accommodations on Kauai. Eddi's breakfasts were as fantastic as others have noted, and her personalized travel advice... More

Everything was perfect from the beautiful views to the delicious breakfasts and smoothies served each morning. Eddi was always available to give informed advice on what to do. The Palmwood is an excellent escape and we preferred its private location over the more crowded south shore of Kauai. Overall we had an excellent experience staying at the Palmwood and can't... More
