My husband and I just returned from our lovely baby moon in Kauai. We had 3 various lodging situations set up, but without a doubt, The Palmwood was our favorite. Every detail was so exquisite and spot on. The bed was beyond comfortable, I even asked Eddie the owner to tell me where she got her mattress as I slept...

The Palmwood is the best place to stay on the island, hands down! It is perched on a hill in a valley so surrounded by mountains and mist in the morning. It is quiet and small and has everything you need. We loved the outdoor shower and pool! The food is incredible and the staff are warm and knowledgeable about...

The Palmwood is a top of the line bed and breakfast. This is the perfect spot if you are looking for a getaway that is quiet, natural and peaceful. Awaken to the roosters crowing, an excellent breakfast by the owner and the head out for your day of fun on beautiful Kauai. It is great to stay at a place...

The Palmwood is a lovely home with three rooms - all separated for privacy. It is centrally located between the north and south ends of the island so it's easy to get anywhere and it's just a short half hour or so from the airport. The Palmwood is in a more rural area, so it's quiet and peaceful. And the...

Like many of the other reviewers, my husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon for four nights. We could've stayed forever. The Palmwood is truly a special place-- inside and out it is so well curated. The soft linens, the magical outdoor shower, the peaceful pool deck perfect for watching the sunrise, the private porch where we'd watch the...

My husband and I stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in Kauai, and we cannot wait to come back. The Palmwood is tucked into the absolutely stunning Anahola Mountains and Eddi has created an absolutely gorgeous and completely serene retreat for those that stay. The pool area, the grounds, the magical lighting. We were utterly enchanted...

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...

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...

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...

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...
