The Palmwood guesthouse is a secluded and private 5 acre estate. The hilltop retreat, inspired by the mountain Ryokans (country inns) of Japan, is nestled amongst the rolling green hills of Moloa'a - a lesser known enclave on the North Shore of Kauai, Hawaii.
The beautiful setting is ideal for those seeking a destination spot away from the crowds. Yet, the location is central providing a great jumping off point for those wanting to explore all sides of the island: the picturesque North Shore encompassing Hanalei, Haena and the famous Na Pali Coast, the small local towns and homesteads dotting the Eastern Shore, the fancy restaurants, resorts, and golf courses along the South Shore and in Poipu, and the Naturalist's dream - Waimea Canyon on the West Side.
With a passion for design and an obsession to detail, The Palmwood provides a sanctuary for the body as well as the mind. Spaces are well thought out and elegantly appointed with furniture from Australia's renowned Pacific Green Furniture and various local artisans. Food is locally sourced and meals are meticulously prepared using only the finest ingredients and produce, always taking in to into account any special requests guests may have.
Offering rustic charm and a simpler way of life without forgoing the small luxuries that make it all worth it, The Palmwood is redefining what it means to be a bed and breakfast.
