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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

“Convenient location, inviting cottage”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago



The cottage was very clean, well stocked, and comfortable. A great place to return to after touring the beautiful island. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals to eat in, or to pack a lunch for the day. The bed was super comfortable, top quality linens in the bedroom and bathroom. Soaps, shampoo, even suntan lotion available to use, next time I will pack lighter. There are many restaurants close, several within walking distance, and a great supermarket with a deli a mile or so away. The owners were great to work with, very quick to respond to all of my questions before we arrived, and also very knowledgeable about local spots to see and local restaurants. We would love to return some day.

“Great private cottage in perfect location!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago



Meli Meli Cottage at 17 Palms was extremely comfortable, stocked with everything we needed, centrally located, and a perfect place from which to explore the island paradise of Kauai! At the end of a dead end road, the cottage was private, yet accessible to the beach (a one block walk down a pedestrian path), the wonderful Coconut Marketplace, and some terrific restaurants/shops and grocery stores. There is a grill which we used frequently, and a small private yard. The other cottage is right next door, but it is very private; much more so than in a block of condos. Ross was an amazing host, giving us some terrific suggestions of places to go and things to do, making sure we had everything we needed. We felt like we were at home! I can't recommend these cottages enough - you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: The Meli Meli Cottage has two bedrooms and is a good size cottage. The Hale Iki Cottage has one bed...

Perfect quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
