We just came back from the Waimea Plantation Cottages. We had two nights there and really enjoyed our stay. The location is wonderful, right on the beach, and if you are interested in visiting the Canyon, it is the place to stay. The cottage we stayed in was very spacious and the whole place has that old time Hawaiian charm,... More

The cottages are situated in a beautiful garden on the seashore. You will find a fully equiped kitchen and spaceous bathrooms. Nice terrace, good place for dinner or a barbecue. It's a quick walk to the seashore, however, the water is a bit murky due to the river that flows into the sea nearby. Small swimming-pool. Ideally situated to visit... More

Very expensive for what we got. $25 resort fee, but for pool and no other amenities not worth it (no bar/restaurant, fitness room, robes, etc). The island is small, you don't need to stay here to get to all the good stuff in the area. Bad mattresses, cheap awful pillows. Safe did not work, termite damage to window frames --... More

Very clean oceanfront cottage. Read a lot of reviews before I booked so I wasn't expecting all of the amenities of a larger resort. People often commented on how quiet the property was. I am surprised to see motorbikes zipping up and down the beach along with other vehicles. Not exactly peaceful.

We stayed in one of these cottages for two nights. The historic cottages are darling and the grounds are lovely. The property is set right on the ocean. No one on the beach except for a few guests. If you are on a budget, there are two Queen Studios. We stayed in one of these and it was perfect .... More

I visit Kauai a few times each year. This is the first time that I have stayed at Waimea Plantation Cottages, but I will definitely return. The cottages are clean and well cared for and the setting is tranquil. Even though there are a lot of individual cottages on the property, it is quiet and you are able to be... More

I've been fortunate enough to visit Kauai several times over the years and this is by far my favorite place to stay. I dislike the sterile condo/hotel experience and AirBNB doesn't appeal because I don't like staying in a stranger's house. Staying at the Plantation Cottages was ideal. It felt like a small, quiet village off the beaten path and... More

This location is ideal for getting away from the typical tourist hotels, and it's very close to the Navy base if you've got business there. Waimea itself is the technology center for many island businesses. The grounds are peaceful and open for strolling, enjoying the ocean, or just sitting in the shade of trees to read a book. There's a... More

I have been to the resort twice now. The first time was for my honeymoon in 2010. My hubby and I returned for a second honeymoon December 2015. We renewed our vows on the beach at sunset at the resort. The property and the beach takes my breath away. It is amazing. It is my favorite place in the whole... More

Stayed here 4 nights in December and welcomed the change from the usual Hawaii hotel/condo. Our 1-bedroom cottage was simple but cozy and very pleasant. Bed nice and firm, good linens, and large bathroom with great water pressure.
