It is so easy to be disappointed by any experience the second time if you loved it the first time. Because your mind creates even a more euphoric view of the experience and then when you go for second, it is impossible to meet your own expectations. Not so much with The Palmwood! Our second time, three years after the... More

My husband and I stayed at The Palmwood for 9 blissful nights for our delayed honeymoon aka "honeycay". I searched tirelessly for a place that was beautiful and luxurious without a resort type of feel in an area that is, well, mainly occupied with resorts. When we stumbled across The Palmwood it was love at first sight even before we... More

This place is truly paradise. My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was the highlight of our trip. The place is simply aesthetically beautiful. You can tell that so much thought was put into every design decision in the house. Eddi, our hostess, was fun, kind, genuine, knowledgeable and an excellent cook. Our breakfasts were our... More

This lovely B&B lived up to all the reviews. From the gorgeous views, to the lovely rooms, to the delicious breakfasts. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and the hot tub was a welcome delight after a long flight. Michael went out of his way to offer great travel advice each morning which was really appreciated. If you're looking for... More

The Palmwood is divine. We were inspired by the beautiful breakfasts and the resemblance to ryokan, which we know well after several years living in Japan. We loved both aspects - retreated and let to ourselves on our lanai and the garden, and will have daydreams about the breakfasts. Take advantage of the hosts' outing advise, never ever miss a...

I've been meaning to write this review for a year now, and am finally getting around to it. We stayed here in June of 2015, and it was my first trip to Kauai. I wanted our trip to be perfect, and I must have looked at every single accommodation on the island, but after seeing this one, I knew it... More

The Palmwood is definitely a place I'd recommend to anyone going to Kauai and a place my husband I plan on visiting again! Mychael and Eddi are so welcoming and full of good ideas for local eats and hikes. The bed and breakfast has 3 rooms, all with amazing views and the house is on such a wonderful, secluded property.... More

The Palmwood looks great and offers a stunning experience for those looking for a relaxing stay. We stayed in the West Room which has a private hot-tub, hammock and even an outdoor shower! It really is tranquil and relaxing here and there is even a decent-sized pool to cool down in. The breakfasts were stunning, using local produce and indulgent... More

First trip to Hawaii and absolutely beautiful B&B. We arrived late so no one to greet us but a sign was present. It was a nice touch but criticism below. The room is beautiful and everything stated on line for the description is accurate. There was a note in the room welcoming us also. Guidebook was also there. Breakfast is... More

The Palmwood is our kind of place. No crowds, roosters crowing, comfortable rooms and amazing breakfasts. From here you can launch busy or mellow days to any part of the island. We did beach days, hiking days and sail/snorkel days and were always happy to return to our quiet, private "home". Eddi made to-go breakfasts for us twice and we... More
