“Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2015

What a great way to spend our vacation in Hawaii! Our family wanted to avoid the mass of humanity at Waikiki beach and this was the perfect way to do it. The property is absolutely beautiful and Kitty is a very gracious and generous hostess. We were close to so many beautiful beaches that it was hard to chose which one to go to on any given day. Kitty provided us with boogie boards, snorkels, fins, towels, etc. to make our beach days easy and fun. At the end of the day, it was so nice to hang out on the patio with Hunter (who is one of the most mellow young dogs we have ever met) and enjoy dinner looking out over the property. We highly recommend Open Palms Plantation.

“Best Experience on Oahu”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2015

We had an exceptional time at the Open Palms Plantation. Kitty was a delightful host providing us with everything we needed including great beach & restaurant recommendations. The accommodations were very comfortable and located is a beautiful area of the Island. We wanted the small town Hawaiian experience and Kailua didn’t disappoint. A little off the beaten path was exactly what we wanted but were delighted to discover we could get anywhere on Oahu within vary reasonable times. Everyone here truly showed us the Aloha sprit making this one of the best experiences we have had in Hawaii and one we’re look forward to repeating.

“A place of magnificent beauty”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2015

Our family spent a very memorable two weeks at Open Palms and look forward to returning there.The Open Palms Plantation is a place of magnifcent beauty. Tranquil and serene, away from the busyness of Honolulu - it is everything we had hoped for and more. We found the accommodations to be exactly as described in the reviews and reflected In the pictures - outstanding! Kitty did everything possible to make our stay a perfect one. Her kind hospitality made it feel like being “at home" and we very much enjoyed our visits with Kitty's dog Hunter too. The easy access to the nearby iconic beaches and the City of Kailua made it the perfect location for us.

“Our idea of heaven”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our 10 night stay at Open Palms Plantation. The first 6 nights were in the detached "cottage" on stilts with a large deck outside. Loved having breakfast of self-picked papaya out there in the mornings and we Bbq'd one night. The last 4 nights were in the house, which is larger with a separate kitchen. Both were totally private, super clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed incl. coffee, TV, wi-fi, bicycles etc. This was the perfect place to go for long walks from. We roamed around most of Waimanalo on foot, and loved every minute of it. The grounds are truly lovely, and the hostess most welcoming. The location is good as well, with easy access to highways, Kailua and Hawaii Kai. Perfect spot to sightsee from, and to really relax in between. We highly recommend a stay here and will be back!

This was a return visit to Open Palms Plantation for us and we are looking forward to another stay in January 2015. We love Open Palms Plantation. Kitty is a fabulous hostess. She is so helpful and nice. The property is beautiful, peaceful and secluded. The accommodations are very nice with all the comforts of home and all the little extras you might need for a day at the beach. It's a short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and very convenient for exploring all of Oahu. Mahalo nui loa for sharing your Hawaiian paradise!

“Fabulous stay”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2014

This was our first trip to Hawaii. We booked the guesthouse at Open Palms Plantation. Everything went very smoothly in this process and we were delighted with the beautiful property and studio guesthouse when we arrived. Kitty is such a gracious hostess and greeted us and showed us around and answered any questions. She had a binder with map available with information about the area and a list of local restaurants. We used that a lot. Enjoyed coming back to our 'home away from home' after a day at the beach or a trip up island. Very comfortable bed, a well appointed bathroom. All our needs she had anticipated. While we didn't cook much all required is there. The air conditioning is efficient and quiet. We enjoyed our stay so much and would love to return.

“You'll want to come back!”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2014

You will definitely enjoy this peaceful retreat if you are not into crowded touristy accommodations. There isn't one thing we would change about our time at Open Palms. Yes, it's true, believe what you read from the other reviews. Kitty is fantastic. She helped make the Hawaii experience one to remember.


Reviewed 15 Jan 2014

First time Hawaii, first time Oahu and first accommodation on our honeymoon-trip. It could not have been better. We loved everything, in particular the peaceful surrounding, with playful Hunter, the lovely Golden Retriever. Very good and easy access to gorgeous Waimanalo beach, a perfect contrast to the hectic Honolulu. The apartment is very well equiped, there is everything one can need. And last but not least, Kitty is the best hostess you can imagine, very helpful and warm. We loved our time at Open Palms Plantation and - if at all possible - we will return one day.

“Loved it!”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2013

It was our first time at the Open Palm Plantation, it was so much more than we ever expected; very beautiful, romantic, and relaxing!! We enjoyed every minute. Kitty is such a gracious hostess; so kind and helpful. We are hoping we can visit the island again, and will definitely stay at Open Palm Plantation. Loved it!

“Definitely a slice of Heaven in Paradise!”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2013

Definitely a slice of Heaven! The beauty that surrounds this plantation is breathtaking. On our first day we felt right at home and so welcomed by the owner. Our rental unit had all we could ask for and more. Kitty was very attentive to all our needs and provided a relaxed atmosphere for a wonderful honeymoon. The plantation is located just 5mins from Waimanalo Beach making it an ideal area away from the usual tourist spot. We were able to enjoy a real Hawaiian experience with a local vibe. We would definitely recommend a stay at the Open Palms Plantation for anyone looking for a peaceful escape. Kitty you are an amazing and loving person who helped make our trip memorable beyond belief. Thanks again, Sandra & Mauricio
