About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, plus 2 bedroom 2 bath, sleeps 6

Check out 17 Palms Kauai online for over 290 reviews posted by our guests. Hale Iki is a one bedroom, one bath cottage with Japanese decor that sleeps two. The front lanai with two teak chairs is located under the orchid festooned branches of a mango tree. In season, perfect mangoes drape right over the lanai. This cottage is perfect for couples and honeymooners. The living room's large L-shaped couch is covered in Japanese kimono fabric pillows. A large teak armoire houses the t.v., dvd and radio dock station. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything including a new dishwasher. A teak table and chairs for eating or one can choose the outdoor bamboo Kubo (shared with the other cottage). The bedroom has a queen sized (super comfortable) bed, bench, small dresser and Asian kimono rack. The bathroom has a full tub and shower + ventilation fan. Amenities include full laundry facilities, bamboo pavilion/Kubo, beach chairs, boogie boards, gas barbeque, cooler, hair dryer, porta-crib (for toddlers), booster seat and beach towels, free WiFi, cable, local phone, and stocked paper and cleaning products (kitchen and laundry). Across the garden is Meli Meli (two bedroom,) which sleeps four and also has full amenities. We outfit the cottage(s) with everything you need, including high quality linens, pillow choices, great towels, and many other quality amenities.

Car: Recommended

Located along the Coconut Coast (few minutes from Kapaa town) on the east side of the island. While only a block away from both the beach and the Kinipopo Shopping Village and Coconut Marketplace, the cottages enjoy the privacy of a lushly planted and fenced garden setting. The North and South shores of Kauai are a 30 - 40 minute drive away.

Surrounded by 17 majestic palm trees, the two cottages sit at opposite sides of a lushly planted garden. Passion fruit and thumbergia vines cover the fences that enclose the property. The fruit of mango, fig, banana, lime and avocado trees are yours for the picking in season. Walk into the banana patch and take an outdoor shower. A bamboo hut (Kubo) is the ideal spot for lunch or dinner (it seats 8) or a snooze and is adjacent to bamboo covered BBQ pavilion.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Ross and Jeff are transplants from San Francisco. We had the pleasure of staying in these cottages while on vacation and immediately fell in love with them. We are still pinching ourselves that we are now the owners of this charming and unique property. 17 Palms Kauai really is an oasis on an oasis - lush, private and only steps from the beach. Jeff is a Bay Area native - a former CFO with a background in business management. Ross is originally from New Hampshire. His background is in theatre and fine art, having worked 9 years at the prestigious John Pence Gallery in San Francisco. Ross is now a licensed realtor with Sleeping Giant Sotheby's International Realty. This is our first mid-life crisis - we skipped the red sports car and moved directly to the tropical island. Welcome to paradise!

Why the Owner Chose Kapaa, HI, USA:
This is an extraordinarily central location and so close to so many nearby amenities and activities, but yet just far enough off of the beaten path to make it a true, hidden gem. Adjacent to the east shore multi-use path also means easy walking and cycling to many nearby places, not necessarily common for other properties which sets 17 Palms Kauai apart.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We maintain our property with detailed attention to many comforts, but without an ego! The beds are incredibly comfortable, great sheets/linens, pillow choices (down/alternative), and many custom touches that truly set this property apart from the majority of other options.
