We absolutely loved the Palmwood! We stayed for 3 nights in the East Room which is ground level with a super comfy tempur bed, outdoor hot tub, outdoor shower, indoor shower/bathroom and private garden area.
One of the main things that struck me over and over again was the incredible attention to detail in every aspect of the B&B. The room design and furnishings are absolutely stunning and luxurious. The bedframe itself is a piece of art. The lazy chair is completely unique and wonderful. Antique pieces are dotted everywhere. There is a leather-look hot tub! The outdoor chairs are gorgeous and comfy. The japanese inspired surrounding garden is immaculate. The shared dining/entertainment area is also beautiful as is the communal tiki/bbq kitchen. The whole place looks like it is straight from a design magazine it is just lovely. As you drive in at night the place is lit up with lanterns and it looks magical. There is a 'fire pit' area down from the garden section where you can sit on hammocks or chairs and enjoy the views. The views from each room are also beautiful.
Another highlight is breakfast. In fact the breakfasts were the best we had on the whole trip! Eddi makes a different organic breakfast each morning and all three we had were just delicious. First morning we had crab cakes with poached eggs and blueberry salad. Second we were served asparagus with prosciutto, apple crumble and an egg bake. The last morning we had amazing french toast with banana. Each morning we also had a berry smoothie and self serve teas/coffees. I am craving some more of that french toast!
Eddi herself is not 'in your face' which is great for a B&B which is very private and suits couples. However if you do need some advice she is extremely knowledgeable on the area!
The location itself is quite out of the way - you will have to drive into one of the surrounding towns for dinner/lunch. There is always the bbq area which is really well stocked if you plan to cook your own meals. Some people mentioned no fridge in room - there is a big fridge in the communal outdoor kitchen area to store things in. There are utensils available and there are plates/cups etc available in the coffee/tea/dining area downstairs.
The three nights after we left we stayed at the Royal Hawaiian which was such a disappointment, we just wanted to be back at the Palmwood...
