We couldn't be happier with our stay at The Palmwood. Wonderful location, gorgeous views. Quiet, serene. Loved the East Room. And the breakfasts...AMAZING. Could not recommend staying at this property more.

Having never been to Hawaii before, I was overwhelmed with figuring out where to stay and what to see. I stumbled upon The Palmwood's Instagram and immediately fell in love with the scenery of Kauai. This is hands-down the most romantic and relaxing B&B you could ask for. Host Eddi treated us to delicious and filling breakfasts that easily accommodated...

We spend 3 nights at The Palmwood and wish we could have stayed more. The setting is so quiet and serene. The room was excellent. We stayed in the Upper Suite and loved getting the cross breeze through the windows up there. Eddi is a wonderful host. The breakfast she provides in the morning are excellent, and she makes something...

We had high hopes for the Palmwood after reading reviews and looking at other options. We couldn't have been happier. The house, rooms, and surroundings are spectacular and can't be summed up in photos. It's quiet and serene, and the natural setting is what you'd expect from Kauai. We stayed in the upper room. We had an unobstructed view of...

My husband and I spent 8 nights at the Palmwood - we were actually married on the grounds! The host, Eddie, is amazing!!! She makes the most amazing breakfast every day. She is gracious and has created a welcoming, luxurious, comfortable environment. The property is amazing. If you are looking for peace and beauty - this is your place! We...

We chose a high-end B&B specifically because we were looking for excellent hospitality. Our interactions with the host Michael left us cold and feeling quite unwelcome. We never saw or interacted with the owner, Eddy, but heard from locals she is the heart and soul of that place and is the one you want to deal with. Bottom line: beautiful...

Aloha! It is quite disheartening to read your review. At The Palmwood it is of the utmost importance that we provide great service, a relaxing and beautiful sanctuary, as well as a personalized Kauai experience to all guests who pass through our doors. The Palmwood isn't for everybody, and on the rare occasion that we may not be the right...

Looking to have a nice quite visit to Kauai, my wife and I chose to stay at The Palmwood. We chose wisely. Small and secluded with beautiful views it was just what we needed. We stayed in the East Room. It was cozy and comfortable and had one of the most luxurious beds I've ever slept on. The grounds are...

This is our favorite place that we have stayed to date. It is so quiet and you have quite a bit of privacy. It really felt like we were staying at relatives home that cooked for us, didn't ask a lot of questions and gave good advice if solicited. During our stay we met both mother and son and each...

Amazing place to get away! Beautiful and relaxing environment surrounded by the lush gardens of Kauai. Great organic & healthy breakfasts complete with fresh juice. Palmwood is top notch & we can't wait to go back!
