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

We absolutely loved the Palmwood in spite of the non-existant reception, not a soul around when we arrived. We were tired, had had difficulty in finding the place. We rang the door-bell nobody there. We were however lucky, we finally found our room and our two very nice neighbor guests became stand-in hosts. They gave us a glass of wine... More

If you're looking for high quality accomodations off the beaten path, this is the place for you. The Palmwood is a 3 room boutique B&B out in the countryside between Kapaa and Kilauea on Kauai's North Shore. My husband & I stayed in the Upper Suite and our friends stayed in the West Room. The rooms were immaculately clean and... More

We just got back from our second stay at the The Palmwood and it continues to be our favorite retreat. The setting is lush and beautiful, the rooms and appointments are wonderful. The hosting is perfect. And the breakfasts are always incredible. We'll be back!

This place was perfect! Gorgeous setting and high-quality accommodations. The jungle view was amazing - we definitely didn't miss that we weren't immediately next to the ocean. The sounds of the rain coming down at night and hitting the leaves felt so refreshing and relaxing. It was also so nice to be away from the crowds. As others have stated,... More
