Great location, right on the beach. Great staff, Aaron was very sweet and helpful. Each cottage was unique and the showers were huge. We booked our stay through Pleasant Hawaiian and they gave us only trouble.

Visiting Wimea Plantation Cottages is more of an experience rather than a stay at a resort.....the moment you drive up to the main building office you are struck with the peaceful tranquility that says "this is the true Hawaii"......the staff are amazing...they treat you like family.....in particular, Buna, who offered to teach our sons to surf in his time off....which...

Lovely vintage cottages, warm staff, beautiful landscaping. Pool is small but right on beach. Can't swim on this beach but an easy drive to swim able beaches. Great little town nearby with Japanese market. Lots of history!

Good location for seeing Waimea Canyon. Close to Po'ipu without the high cost. Sort of far from the action on east and north coasts. Nice place to stay . View of the ocean, has a nice pool. Beach has no lifeguard, large current

The Waimea Plantation Cottages were lovely. The staff was friendly. The grounds are beautiful. The room was clean and nice (with a kitchenette). It's location at the base of the Waimea Canyon was perfect too. To my surprise there was even a wall AC unit. We had the cheapest room they offer and it was really good. Best price was... More

This was our second stay at the cottages. The staff is very warm, friendly and helpful. The cottages are very comfortable, even more so this year as more of the units have an air conditioner. both units we have stayed in had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, but they have an excellent restaurant on the property.

My husband and I recently returned from a 6 night stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages and we enjoyed every minute. The Cottages are located on the southern coast of Kauai away front the hustle and bustle and hoards of people in the popular resort areas, exactly what we wanted. We were greeted by a friendly and informative host. The... More

I loved our cottage, the pool, and the beach. It exceeded expectations, exuding an ambience of Old Hawaii more than any other place I've been. Exceptionally peaceful. If you're looking for glitz, "new" and pretentious, this is NOT the place. This was old-fashioned relaxing with vintage furniture. We loved it.
