  • It's like staying with family!

    "Staying at Palm Cottage was the BEST part of our trip to Hawaii!!! Words can't adequately express what an AMAZING place this is! The owners, Millie & Norm, went ABOVE & BEYOND to do everything they could to help us. . . we felt like we were house guests of close friends/family!!! Our cottage was PERFECT for us! At first we were hesitant when we heard there was no A/C-however, we found out immediately that our concern was in vain. There were numerous windows (with screens & blinds) that welcomed the ocean breeze CONSTANTLY. We stayed cool the entire time. . . the temperature was perfect. It added to the Hawaiian atmosphere-it was incredibly pleasant. (tip: make sure you raise the blinds when you sleep-as the wind will knock them against the window frame. :-) The windows are high enough above the bed that you won't be visible from outside). The cottage itself is SUPER clean. . . in fact, everything in it appears to be brand new. Millie & Norm thought of everything a house guest could possibly need OR WANT!!! As soon as we arrived they greeted us with a basket full of basic food necessities & treats. We had apples, bananas, Hawaiian jelly, sweet rolls, pastries, Hawaiian chocolates, chips, and salsa. The fridge was stocked with milk, eggs, fruit juice, sausage, etc. The cupboards were also filled with all kinds of food & condiments. We hardly had to buy any groceries at all!!!! The bathroom was stocked with beach towels, beach bag, a cooler beach bags, sunblock, soaps, shampoo, shower gel, hair dryer, lotions, & more!!! They also provide an iron. On top of all of this, we even found out that we would have access to our own "DVD rental place"! Norm has a HUGE collection of DVD movies & we borrowed a few. After a busy day of activities, it was so nice to relax watching a good movie at night! (they even provided popcorn : )! The view from the porch is amazing! Millie & Norm have been gifted with "green thumbs" & their backyard is a mini botanical garden. All kinds of fruit trees, beautiful flowers, and plants covered their yard. Millie even generously shared a butternut squash & papaya with us! The walk to Kailua beach took about 10-12 minutes. One day we even walked to Lanikai Beach (about 25 minutes). The walk to town (plenty of grocery stores & restaurants was around 10 minutes). Any questions we had, Millie & Norm were MORE than willing to help us, and offer fantastic advice about the island. If I could sum up the cottage in a word "AMAZING" MUST STAY!!!"

  • Awesome. Total relaxation.

    "Pros; wonderful setting on beach, awesome view from deck, spent hours watching the surf sea turtles, whales (at distance, seals( when sailing) snorkeled day and during night (totally different sea life at night), dock to walk on to look at view, fish or watch for fish, fun sailing trip with owner, very comfortable cottage, loved the hammock, and jaccuzi, Mike (owner) and Laycie ( property manager) were both very nice. Cons,beach gets very narrow at high tide and is not one where you can walk it easily, constant traffic noise back of cottage. When you see how crowded the main beaches are , you come to treasure this spot of relative privacy, the entire setting is very special."

  • Great location. Very clean.

    "My partner and I were here for a wedding and the unit location was perfect for that. Close to Kailua Town to organize flowers and catering but also within walking distance of the beach for relaxation. Access to the major highways was also very good for getting around Oahu. We appreciated the beach umbrella and chairs as we were not able to bring our own. The unit was very clean and we had no problems with anything. Overall very highly recommended."

  • True Paradise!

    "We must start with a big thank you! from the moment we walked through the gated entrance we instantly felt an amazing feeling of what is to come. As we entered the house it was no surprise to see how immaculate everything was. We were on a family vacation with our 3 girls 9, 8, and 5 and there was plenty of room on the Bali style sectional that slept all 3 comfortably with room to spare. Now lets talk about the parents! The master suite was incredibly spacious with windows in every direction to experience the great windward breezes (never had to use air conditioning for 17 days!). The California king Tempurpedic! Have no words to describe how amazing a vacation can be when you get a great night of sleep every night. The closet was very spacious and the spa bathroom fit the entire family! The yard had eclectic tropical vegetation and the pool was perfect for before dinner barbeques. By the pool was a unique Bali-style gazebo that was perfect for shade and chillaxing! The beach was a short walk and we could not start the day without watching the most spectacular sunrises. Kailua is by far true paradise and we will no doubt, be back! Mahalo Chritstian, Kendra, and Jack for making your home feel like our home. Look forward to seeing you soon!"
