About the property

The Palm Cottage is located on a secluded road, only a few short blocks from Kailua beach and minutes from Lanikai Beach. Nestled among tropical gardens, we have taken care to create a refuge of comfort that is designed to meet all your needs. A short walk and you are in the middle of Kailua Town with beautiful shops and fine restaurants.

The cottage is a second floor unit approximately 480 sq ft, with a full kitchen, private bath, internet connection and TV/BluRay DVD entertainment center. It is located on the back of our property, away from the street and it has a great view of the Koolau mountains and is very quiet. The current configuration consists of a queen size bed which is partitioned by folding screens from the living room with a queen size pull out couch. There is a counter in the kitchen that serves as a eating area and is directly assessable from the stove and sink. The kitchen comes with a Apartment size stove and refrigerator, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, cooking utensils and rice cooker.

The bathroom has a corner shower and all linens and towels are provided. Close to a Bus Stop. Private parking on property allows added convenience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is a hidden treasure! Norm and Millie are gracious hosts and the unit is well-stocked with food and a full kitchen. It is on the second floor so will not work for physically challenged people but it has great cross-ventilation and is always comfortable. We like that it is within walking distance of town and the Kailua Beach Park.

We had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable accommodation for us and worked out just GREAT! The extra sleeper works for a younger person, a week was A OK. The hosts were so kind and generous. VERY clean here. We had our privacy, location, comforts, beaches and restaurants! The breezes through the room were lovely. I did not get much home cooking, is time, but there is a well set-up kitchen. Thank you Norm and Millie!!

Hope to be back in the Spring! We recommend; Cinnamons, Kalapawai Cafe & Deli, Crepes No Ka Oi, and Teddy's Burgers.

Wonderful Vacation Escape

  • 5 of 5

I keep going back to Palm Cottage as a reliable and comfortable vacation retreat. The hosts are very accommodating, the cottage provides a great base for beach and restaurant sojourns and the location is perfect. Since it's close to The Bus line, I never rent a car.

Loving Kailua

  • 5 of 5

Norm and Millie are wonderful hosts. (Thank you for stocking the basic food and sundries!) Palm Cottage is private, clean, bright and airy--perfect for two people. The location is fantastic with a short walk to the beach, the beach-rental facility and shave ice. Kailua is a lovely town with more than enough shopping. Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach are two of the best anywhere. Plenty of hikes nearby too! We would return here and recommend Palm Cottage without hesitation!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and well stocked with everything you need. Millie and Norm kindly stocked some foods to get us started which were very appreciated. It is in a nice, quiet neighborhood that is an easy walk to town or the beach (even for a 60+ year old). Since we unfortunately booked our trip during hurricane season, the humidity levels were higher than usual and I was very worried that we would roast. However, since the studio is on the 2nd floor it gets the most wonderful breeze from the ocean. I can't remember the last time I slept so well and I didn't miss the fact that there is no air conditioner. Millie and Norm are kind, thoughtful hosts and I would highly recommend a stay in their lovely cottage.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay at Palm Cottage and it remains my favorite place to stay in Kailua. The cottage is private, clean, fully furnished with everything I could need and very convenient to the beach and the center of town. Millie and Norm are great hosts who go out of their way to help when needed and allow privacy as well.

The road is right by the bus stop and it's an easy trip on The Bus from Ala Moana.

I'll be back.
