'A slice of Heaven in Paradise' is what you'll find at Open Palms Plantation. Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of not having neighbors close by. A beautiful island-style home nestled in Oahu's horse country on a 2.5 acre plantation setting located at the base of the spectacular Koolau Mountain Range and close to three of the worlds top rated beaches, Lanikai, Waimanalo and Kailua. We are just 3 minutes away from the 5 mile long pristine white sandy beach and turquoise water of Bellows and Waimanalo Beach.Aloha and welcome to Open Palms Plantation!

In Hawaii, our greeting to friends is, 'Aloha! E komo mai'; Hello! Come in! So, to all who want to know the natural, quiet beauty of Hawaii, I say: 'Welcome! Come in, relax, and enjoy my little gem in paradise”. My kids have grown up and moved on into the world allowing me to open my home to those who are seeking a more pure part in Hawaii. The same dedication and love of the land that caused me to build Open Palms is still with me, and when you visit, you'll see me on my mower, or in the flower gardens with my weeder, or trimming the lush foliage that borders our property. There are horses in our paddock that kids can pet and feed and barbeque grills stand ready for your outdoor parties. Situated in the foothills of the Koolau Mountain range – the only mountain range of its kind in all of Hawaii – we are afforded a spectacular view of the sheer, corrugated gorges that accentuate the range. You can't believe how inspiring it is, following a rain, to see these gorges serving as conduits for magnificent waterfalls. A flock of white doves live in the trees on the property and are tame enough to hand feed, something the kids just love. We also have a gorgeous peacock in the neighborhood who has made it his practice to come visiting every afternoon for his supper. My determination is to continue sharing this beauty with people from around the globe who will feel the same appreciation of Open Palms that I have. I am humbled that so many guests have taken the time to send me cards and letters – even photos of their families – with expressions of gratitude and appreciation. Also, many return year after year, and have sent their friends and family to share in the same happiness. It is my hope that we meet, and through that meeting we also become true friends. So… Aloha, Welcom, Come in, Relax. – No worries”. You're in Open Palms Plantation. Mahalo, Kitty NicholsMore
