About Ross Martineau

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!

Ross Martineau purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Ross Martineau chose Wailua

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cool, comfortable, well-equipped cottage. Hip decor, quality furnishings (awesome bed), lots of thoughtful extras. Location was super convenient if you want to explore the whole island as we did. We took a heli flight from Lihue airport; hiked trails from the Kalalau Look out and along the Napali Coast; swam near Kekaha, Hanalei Bay, and Kapaa; kayaked along the northeast coast, and ate EVERYwhere. Shopping and eating within walking distance. The ocean is an easy two-minute walk out the cottage gate. Two close beach spots: waves were a bit raucous in one (we still swam) and a sweet sheltered baby beach that would be awesome for kids and cautious adults (we swam there too). Cottage owners were helpful and hospitable. Thanks!

Perfect quiet getaway.

Our trip to Kauai was made perfect by our stay at Hale Iki. Great place, great location and great hosts in Ross and Jeff. We found the cottage exactly as pictured and would book it again in a minute. We have stayed on the Coconut Coast before and highly recommend this cottage to all ages.

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 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.
