Jeff and Ross own two cottages and we have been very fortunate to spend some days in each, so our opinion refers to both cottages.
We were looking for a nice and quite cottage, different from big hotels and resorts, and we were very lucky to find this, very good decision to stay here!!. The cottages are very well decorated, roomy, very well maintened, spotlessly clean and fully equipeed with everything you can imagine. Not only the kitchen is fully equipped with all minor details including oil, salt, peper..., but also books, cards, music to enjoy the time at the house. There is also a nice barbacue and a cover area to eat outside. Jeff and Ross provide towels, beach towels, boards, beach chairs, coolers to take your lunch to the beach......, hats, bags, umbrella. You do not miss anything as they have already thought on it.
The cottages are surrounded by vegetation, fruit trees from which you can pick mangos, bananas, guavas.....and there is a very nice outdoor shower under the bananas.
Do not want to forget to mention that both cottages have very good free wifi connection and free phone to make local calls. This is always helpful.
17 Palms Kauai is really well located, close to the airport, short distance to Kapa'a where you have shops, supermarket and restaurants, and conveniently localed to visit the north/east coast and beaches as well as the south. If you are planning to spend a few days in this gorgeous island, we would recommend to be only at one place and the place is 17 Palms Kauai. It is located in a small neighbourhood and there is no car noise or people noise. You can only hear the trees moving and the roosters, just nature.
We met Jeff and could understand why the cottages are so nicely cared, Jeff is very helpful and supportive with recommendations on where to go, where to dine, what to visit. We can also say that due to the unexpected situation of a hurricane arriving to Hawaii we could experience Jeff's kindness in helping us to arrange everything to extend our stay at his place, and this is why we could experience Hale Iki after a week in Meli Meli. This unexpeceted situation, turned out to be a positive experience for us, as we could visit more places in Kauai!!.
We have really good memories of Kaui and 17 Palms Kauai, we miss Meli Meli and Hale Iki, you made our stay feel better than being at home.
