“Wonderful stay in a Stunning Location!”

We had a 5-night stay in the guest-quarters with our 3 year old on this beautifully-located, meticulously maintained property. The property exceeded our expectations - it was very spacious, had a super comfy King-size bed and contained everything we needed (beach equipments was very useful). We loved that there was a separate bedroom away from the living room, which meant that when our little one went to bed, we could have some alone time and relax and watch TV, without disturbing her. Kitty was the perfect host - very helpful, warm and hospitable, while still giving us our privacy on her property. We had a very relaxing time and it was perfect for our 3 year old to run around in the garden, explore nature and pat Hunter, the friendly dog. I can highly recommend if you're looking for a relaxing break near the mountains whilst being only a short drive from beautiful east-coast beaches. We hope to return one day!

Myself and my Aunt had a wonderful time at the Open Palms Plantation. Kitty was a delightful host providing us with everything we needed including great beach & restaurant recommendations. She really out did herself. It's like coming home for a visit. The accommodations were very comfortable and located is a beautiful area of the Island, nestled up against the Ko'olau mountain range. We wanted the small town Hawaiian experience and OPP didn’t disappoint. A little off the beaten path was exactly what we wanted. We could get anywhere on Oahu within vary reasonable times. Everyone here truly showed us the Aloha spirit.

“Just BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!!”

Kitty is lovely and so is her home.
I would say this is the best place to stay in Oahu. Beautiful property, just as shown in her pictures!
Near to shopping, restaurants and the best beaches in Oahu. Yet, located in the countryside.
Kitty provides her visitors with everything they need for the beach, picnics, toiletries, and kitchen.
We found a gem and if you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful place to stay- look no further, Open Palm Plantation is it!!
If I could I would give Kitty and her vacation property 10 stars!!!!!

I totally recommend going to Open Palms. I have told everyone who will listen about it. It is the true essence of Hawaii. Not the places full of hotels, but the beautiful, the local, the rare. Close to some of the world's best beaches, you will not be sorry you stayed here!

Just returned from our stay at Open Palms Plantation and have the "Waimanalo Blues". Everything you need is provided by your wonderful hostess Kitty. Just bring your shorts, T shirts and swim trunks. Beach towels, boogie boards, snorkels, fins, beach chairs all provided. The guest house is stocked with everything you need. The property is beautiful, large and very safe. Great shower, endless hot water, comfortable king bed. Location is close to Kailua(10 minutes) for restaurants, Foodland, Target, and shopping. This is Hawaii, not a sanitized tourist vacation. Can't wait to go back. Matt,Laura&Natalie
