I designed the house as a place for honeymooners and couples celebrating special occasions to vacation at because it is located on 3 beautiful and tropical acres. The lush grounds with the palm trees and fruit trees and tropical flowers everywhere remind the guests that they are vacationing in a heavenly home in Hawaii!
'Pure Heaven' 'The location was great!! The Place Outstanding!! I can't wait to stay at Makale'a Plams again.' 'Such luxury amidst such natural beauty!' 'We were overwhelmed by how wonderful the cottage was when we first entered & can't imagine why folks would want to stay any place else...this place has it all!'

Everything from the design, to the flowers, to the furniture, to the kitchen utensils, is first class all the way!' GO TO GUEST COMMENTS TO READ MORE...
Thanks for allowing us such a beautiful home from which we could explore this gorgeous island. Such luxury admist such natural beauty! We enjoyed the cool breezes, cooking dinners, jacuzzis in the rain, a mango from your tree, the beach chairs and umbrellas-you really thought of everything! We really hate to leave. Many thanks for a very lovely vacation!
We, two fifty something geezers, stayed at the Palms for 8 days in late January. It was our first time in Kauai, and the first time we've ever stayed in one rental on a vacation . We were SO glad we did!
As others have noted, the house is perfectly situated as a home base for any adventure. Once you turn off the main road into the gate, you're in your own private paradise. SO far away from the crowds in Princeville and Poipu. Yes, you might hear a little road noise, but it's totally minor.
We spent almost every evening at "home" - and prepared some amazing meals in the VERY well equipped kitchen, then reviewed the day's shenanigans in what we called the Tiki Tub, as my husband erected torches around the pool. Super fun. Also loved the steam shower, as so many others have.
Doreen and Shawn were amazing hosts... SO responsive. My husband mentioned that the bbq grill grate was failing and the next day there was a new grill waiting for us when we got back from the beaches. She even brought over some pickles when she heard that we were lacking for a batch of tarter sauce we were making to accompany the fresh fish we were grilling. So so nice.
Obviously, we highly recommend the Makel'a Palms. All of Kauai was wonderful.
Here are a few things in particular that we would recommend to others.
#1 Shaki Tours App - GPS based apps - one for the northern coast, and the second for Waimea Valley area. Super fun and kind of goofy - kind of like having a corny tour guide in your back seat (BE SURE TO BRING A CABLE TO PLUG YOUR PHONE INTO THE JACK IN OUR CAR - And download when you're attached to WIFI. #2 IF you're a foodie, sign up early for the Kauai Ono dinner - held just east of Princeville in an outdoor tent. Lovely food and such nice people BYOB with no corkage. #3 Hanai is a great little grocery store just north of Kapaa that features all island sourced foods (except for their great selection of wines and beer). If they have their turmeric sausage, GRAB SOME. It's fantastic! They also have pop up restaurant nights in their parking lots one or two Saturdays a month.
Have a fantastic time if you stay at the Palms. You won't regret it!
We were so surprised as to how Beautiful Makale'a Palms truly is...The property is very tropical and private yet centrally located on the north shore close to great beaches and restaurants. The house has everything anyone would need for the perfect vacation in paradise...beautiful furnishings, linens and art. The kitchen is well equipped with nice pots, pans and chef knives. WE loved soaking in the large hot tub under the stars every night after many adventurous days. We enjoyed the steam shower also! Every morning we would enjoy our breakfast on the front lanai as we took in the beautiful property with all the palm trees. It is very secluded and peaceful. We will be returning again to stay in this beautiful home that made for a Perfect vacation on Kauai. Mahalo Doreen for providing us with a magical place to call home!
There are many reasons why I will stay here again. First, I love the central location to my favorite areas of Kauai (I love to visit Hanalei and Kapa'a). If you like to spend your days in different spots, then you would love it too because it is a great base of operations for all of your adventures. Also, the privacy and seclusion was exactly what I was looking for. We also brought our two little ones with us (2 and 4 yrs old) and they loved the place as well. The open floor plan was perfect for them to run around and play with their toys, and if they wanted to watch some videos then WiFi was available. They also loved the HUGE lawn area where we kicked a ball around and run about. The hammock was a huge hit too. The hot tub under the stars was my favorite, along with the outdoor shower. The place also boasts a ton of useful stuff. The ice maker/blender were constantly in use (iced coffees, pina coladas, etc) and the beach gear (specifically the umbrella, cooler and boogie board) was a life saver. Finally, the generous gift basket awaiting us upon arrival was very welcome, laden with perfect snacks and a critical bag of fresh ground coffee.
We had an amazing family vacation and this place made it happen.
This was my very first time where I didn't stay in a hotel for a vacation. The home is so lovely. Beautiful wood floors, screen and covered lanai, hot tub ( very clean), tranquil yet right off Kuhio. Owners are around if you need anything but things are so well organized you likely won't. Kitchen well stocked with anything you would need to cook, outside gas grill, nice bed and bath linens. Beach chairs, good quality mask, snorkel and fins. Cable TV and some DVDs are there but didn't use much. Had good cell service there, wifi didn't seem great to me. I could join but didn't have service it seemed but that wasn't a big deal. Would stay again. Owner very responsive to emails when booking and during the lead up.
Makale'a Palms is by far the most beautiful vacation home I've ever had the pleasure to stay. We love it so much that I can't imagine not coming back every year!! This was our third time staying at Makale'a Palms and words can't describe how much we love being there. I really love how much thought Shawn and Doreen have put into making our stay perfect. Often times you forget all the little things that you need or want on vacation like chairs, towels, coolers, snorkel gear, and boogie boards but Shawn and Doreen provide it all. This is the one vacation that I don't stress packing for because I know that everything we could ever want is waiting for us.
The house and property are absolutely stunning! Every year that we come back, it keeps getting better. I truly appreciate all the time and attention Shawn and Doreen put into making sure everything is perfect all the time! I love the privacy of the property and all the little things outside like the hot tub, shower, hammock, and the beautiful lanai to enjoy a peaceful breakfast and coffee in the morning!! The location couldn't be any better. It is close to all of our favorite beaches and restaurants. I could go on and on about this vacation home, but nothing can describe how perfect it truly is:) If you are on vrbo looking for the perfect place, you have found it!!! We are already planning our trip for 2017 and 2018:)
This is my second time in Kauai and for sure the most enjoyable. This house has everything you need and you feel as if you were at home, but you are actually in Paradise! The Makale'a Palms is very well decorated, very clean and welcoming. There is no doubt the Murphy's want you to feel happy and you can tell by the fresh flowers that Mrs.Murphy will gracefully set for you on the tables. The bathroom a has large walking steam shower and there is an outdoor jacuzzi. Moreover, there are plenty of towels, beach chairs and several new sets of snorkeling gears. I had a great time with my friends at this wonderful house. I highly recommend it to anyone who want to spend an unforgettable time in Kauai.
Makale'a Palms is a wonderful place to have a wedding or special event! It is on three beautiful and tropical acres and is very private!
