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

It's all been said, so to be brief: My wife and I would recommend Eddi and her son Michael's B&B without hesitation to any one staying on the North Shore! Eddi's breakfasts were phenomenal, every guest there gushed over the creativity and passion behind the meals. Each room contained a local guide book (The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook by Andrew Doughty)... More

My husband and I were looking for a fun and relaxing Kauai getaway that would not involve staying at a resort, and The Palmwood was absolutely perfect. Amazing North Shore location close to the Na Pali coast, best beaches, and cool secret spots the owners tell you about. Eddi and Michael are wonderful hosts - not only are they incredible... More

A recent far too short two night stay at The Palmwood was a highlight of our first trip to Kauai. The attention to detail is meticulous, the property beautiful and tasteful in every way, the amenities such as the outdoor shower, two person hot tub and spacious lanai were beyond our expectations. Altogether a very romantic and special place. And... More

We stayed a multiple hotels and bed and breakfasts on Kauai, including the St. Regis - - and the Palmwood was our favorite. The grounds and room match the rustic, tropical beauty of the island. We took advantage of the outdoor shower, hot tub, patio and outdoor kitchen and we really felt like we had the entire property to ourselves.... More

My now-husband fought with me on staying here - he said it was too expensive, he wasn't sure it was worth it, etc. I couldn't find another B&B in the area that I liked so after some pushing we booked it for five nights and it was ABSOLUTELY the highlight of our honeymoon. The rooms and furnishings are eco-friendly, trendy... More

We wanted to end our honeymoon with a bit of luxury, and the Palmwood was the perfect place to do so. We stayed for 4 nights, after having spent 4 nights on Maui and 6 on the Big Island. Overall, Kauai ended up being our favorite spot and the Palmwood matches the beauty of the island. The property is beautiful,... More
