WPC has now topped my list of the best places I have ever stayed. The service from beginning to end was pleasant and prompt. The cottage was clean. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and tableware. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. It was nice to have free laundry facilities, and my son enjoyed the free movies & games... More

Staff is awesome! They really are friendly and helpful. Grounds are beautiful. Location is right off main road from Lihue Airport, beautiful scenic (slow drive for most of it), and off the ocean. Cottages are cute, and actually adequate in terms of 2 AC units (load though), kitchen is full size, bathroom shower, small family room area and bed. Plenty... More

Thank you very much for your review, James. I would like to inform you that we indeed work closely with a professional pest control company to Unfortunately a number of guests leave food out on counters as opposed to in the fridge – this absolutely attracts insects and makes our jobs tougher – certain guests leave dirty dishes, food etc....

This was our first trip to Kauai, and I wanted someplace quiet, romantic, and off the beaten path. The Waimea Plantation Cottages were absolutely perfect! We had our own one bedroom cottage with a huge lanai facing the ocean, a kitchenette, and a cozy living area. There was lots of light, and a lovely breeze kept the cottage comfortably cool... More

My wife and I stayed at the Waimea Plantation Cottages prior to a conference at Princeville. I was looking for something different than the usual Hawaiian resort and I found it. Our cottage, Ditchman, was clean. There were no bugs or bad smells. The kitchen met our needs. Overall the cottage was well maintained; the only exception being the shower... More

This is our second stay at Waimea Plantation Cottages. (Last visit was 14 years ago) We had a one-bedroom oceanfront cottage and truly enjoyed the stay. The cottages are quaint with fully stocked kitchens and a very comfortable lanai. No airconditioning but you can open the large screened doors and windows to move air and be refreshed. The staff is... More

What a relaxing place to stay! Our own private cottage with an ocean view and close enough to hear the soothing sound of the waves as we relaxed both in and outside of our cottage. Loved starting and ending each day with a walk on the beach looking for sea shells. The black sand was different from other beaches. We... More

We loved this place. Our cottage was vintage but charming and very reminiscent of old Hawaii. Lovely furniture and towels were plush. It is dated but that is precisely why it is so charming. Real feel of Hawaii. No mice, no bugs just real old school feel. We had an ocean front cottage near the pool (#79?), it is worth... More

We have stayed at the Wiamea plantation cottages for the last five years. There are lots of choices on the island Kauai. We want a resort in a rural setting close to the ocean with lots of sunshine. We don't mind roosters crowing or horseback riding through the surf as we are listening to the multitudinous birds in the giant... More

Our second visit to the Waimea Plantation Cottages. We had a one bedroom ocean front cottage. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves, the beautiful sunsets, the amazing flowers and birds in the grounds- sheer bliss! We hope to spend a month there next year. BUT -this may not be the place for you! Waimea is most definitely... More

Coming from a top metropolitan city, we want to get away to be closer to the nature, and to find some solice, in the beautiful garden state, and the plantation cottages!
