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

My wife and I stayed at The Palmwood for the last 5 nights of our honeymoon in October 2013 and we couldn't be happier that we came across it! First of all, the food was completely out of this world: fresh, creative, and overwhelmingly delicious. A foodie's dream. We ate breakfast at The Palmwood and would go play all day... More

We stayed at The Palmwood for four days over the Christmas holidays (yes, this review is long overdue). Words cannot describe how beautiful this area is and how restful our stay was. Our hosts were outstanding, the food delicious, and the location was perfect to navigate the northern parts of Kauai. This is truly a hidden gem.

Only 3 rooms and it feels like coming home. Everything is private, safe and charming. Eddie is a great host and we hope that she will start writing cook books - the breakfast is outstanding. We stayed in the upper suite. Well equipped room, no a/c which is not needed. 100% recommendable place for those who like it private.

We visited last week of May, and stayed for three nights at The Palmwood. We were going to stay all nights at Koa Kea on South Shore but decided to split our time between the North and South to cut down on driving, and finding The Palmwood on Tripadvisor made our vacation even more special. First, location is perfect in... More

We visited the Palmwood for 4 nights the first week of June. I had always stayed on Kauai's south shore before, but now I have a new 'home'. The property is beautiful but is landscaping stays to true to natural Hawaii. Fruit trees abound, and you will find their treasures in the incredible breakfast made each AM for you by... More

It s our second trip on Kauai and we choose to stay n the north shore for the beauty of this part of island. The palmwood was above all our expectations. The places fantastic: not really far from the main road but sufficiently to forget it, easy to access. The house is beautiful: exteriors and interiors. The view are scenic.... More

The accommodation selection in Kauai is limited. If you're not into the large chain hotels (like the St. Regis, which is beautiful no doubt) and are looking for an intimate, upscale B & B, this is the place (in fact it's the only place). We had a wonderful 3 night stay and took advantage of our private jacuzzi (West Room)... More
