  • 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!!!"

  • Pool condition poor

    "House was as depicted in listing. Very comfortable for all 7 adults and 6 children. HOWEVER, the pool water was green with algae. Several phone calls finally got results for filter cleaning and chlorine, but no one could go in for 4 of our 7 days. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Pool was a big factor in our renting house and we anticipated jumping in immediately upon arriving after a long flight from Chicago."

  • You won't want to leave!

    "We had the best time and had a really hard time leaving... It's the kind of place you can settle into - super homey and comfortable with plenty of luxuries to make the stay one of your best vacations yet! Such a treat to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and it's only 20 minutes away if you want to visit - we ate dinner in town one night and visited Pearl Harbor another afternoon. The house is perfectly located - steps to the beach, walking distance to nearby markets, restaurants, bike and surf rentals and the ever so famous Hawaiian Snow! We took morning walks on the beach to catch the sunrise (highly recommended), hiked pillbox and a few other nearby trails, ran the Lanikai loop a few times, drove just to drive and enjoy the scenery, we rented stand up paddle boards to check out Flat Island and the Mokes and also rented bikes to cruise around town. Everything is conveniently close with tons of great restaurant options and supermarkets too if you enjoy staying in to cook. Even though the beach/water were steps away, we ended up using the pool fairly often. It was nice to have the privacy in your very own backyard! We had one rainy day during our stay and had no problems filling up our time getting pedicures and massages! Kailua has everything you want and need, plus so much more. The owner is very responsive and was super helpful responding to my questions. He even suggested a few hikes in the area that we shouldn't miss! We can't wait to get back and would definitely book Lihikai again. In fact, we already did! :)"

  • A Piece of Aloha Paradise

    "This perfect bamboo cottage was beyond our expectations. We enjoyed our 7 day stay at this amazing location (not too far from Kailua state beach, Lanikai beach and shopping centers). Stacy provided constant communication and was attentive in regards to the construction happening behind the cottage (which did not bother us). The amenities like the coffeemaker, cups, boogie boards, beach towels were all very useful! My husband and I truly recommend this little piece of paradise to anyone seeking some rest and relaxation. Definitely a two thumbs up!! Thank you Stacy for a comfortable stay."
