We booked Hale Iki Cottage at 17 Palms because we wanted a taste of Hawaiian living away from the resort style of accommodation and somewhere that was located in a central location for touring. Hale Iki Cottage was perfect; cool and comfortable, interesting décor, close to the beach and shopping. We could have easily stayed and relaxed at the cottage...

The Meli Meli cottage and 17 Palms was a wonderful place to call home while visiting Kauai. Jeff and Ross are wonderful hosts with excellent communication, customer service, and hospitality. They made sure we had everything we needed to have a comfortable, enjoyable stay. The cottage itself is absolutely charming, very comfortable for four, and well located. There are lots...

Jeff and Ross have taken such care and have gone to great lengths to make Meli Meli a truly comfortable and lovely escape in paradise, not to mention their expertise and guidance of the island! This spacious cottage is light and airy with glorious windows and....well a perfect beach cottage where you instantly feel at home. The cottage is right...

The cottage was perfectly equipped for us to enjoy Everything the island had to offer. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was decorated very tastefully. Location was ideal for us to easily access all parts of the island. The owners were always helpful and available.

This place was exactly what we hoped for! Super cute, super clean, great location, well-priced and great customer service. We would absolutely recommend it. Such a better way to go than a hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer. Jeff and Ross went out of their way to make sure the place was immaculate and that we had everything we...

The owners were very nice and helpful. Sweet spot walking distance to the beach! Great location close to whatever you may need. It was easy to find the grocery stores, snorkel shops, fish stores, shopping, & Bakery. We had our own yoga teacher come visit in the little yard amongst the palms, BBQ was perfect for our late night dinners...

We stayed in both cottages on the property and enjoyed them both! We were travelling with our 4 mos old daughter and some family. The property was beautiful and so well kept. The deck at Hali Iki was great and the high ceilings and fans of Meli Meli gave it a nice lofty feel. Both cottages were very well equipped...

Charming, meticulously clean, lovely, comfortable cottage with all the amenities of home. Remarkable attention to detail without being overdone. Allows a guest to feel immediately at home. Short drive from main airport at Lihue. Within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, easy drive to grocery stores, and positioned mid island for good access to Na Pali coast and Waimea...

First you are on Kauai; what more could you ask? And then there is this gorgeous little place, right near shopping, beaches, restaurants. And it's a private cottage, all your own. And it is beautifully appointed. And if you need anything, the owners (off site) are accessible and hugely helpful. You can't go wrong.

This wonderful cottage strikes a perfect balance between classy beach chic and relaxed surf shack. If you're looking for a step up from funky, impersonal (but cheap) rentals, without going overboard on prices, and if you value a place that has elegance and an eye for design as well as comfort, this is the place. The mattress is soooo comfortable...
