We just got back from a week-long stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages. It was a great trip with a nice balance of exploring Kauai and relaxing in our quiet cottage. The cottage had a lot of rustic charm and character, which we loved. It was fun being greeted by roosters, cats, and geckos and we had a mango tree... More

Our 6th stay at Waimea Plantation Cottages. Wouldn't consider any where else on this area of Kaua'i. Staff are friendly, beds very comfortable and it's a special place to relax. The upgrades in the pool area were nice. Was disappointed the restaurant business had moved out since last year, but suspect that might change as it's a great space. Regardless,... More

Between the location on the beach, the beautiful layout and gardens and the lovely staff. This place is perfect for anyone wanting to get the feeling of Hawaii and its history. We loved cooking in the kitchen after sundown, having a drink and not having to drive anywhere!

If you like us enjoy the spirit of old island life, mixed in with peace and quiet, the sound of ocean waves and fantastic evenings on the porch, these cottages are a must. Placed in fantastic surroundings with fruit trees, chickens, birds etc. we were a family of 10, using 3 cottages, and totally enjoyed our stay. Great little city... More

We have been coming to Waimea Plantation for over 30 years. From the wonderful first experiences many years ago giving us a glimpse of historic Kauai to many a family celebration, we have stayed in a dozen different cottages and loved them all. That was before this summer when we stayed for yet another family birthday at the Managers' House.... More

We loved the casual, quiet and old style charm of the cabin we had, steps away from the black sand beach. The furniture was retro and very Hawaiian. We had quiet cozy breakfasts in our little kitchen and could set off to explore the Waimea canyon, just a few miles away. The bed was perhaps not quite firm enough -... More

The plantation site is wonderful and the history of the place is well worth reading. Ocean view cottages are lovely, most cottages have a back terrace/deck with seating for dining and relaxing. Very well maintained friendly island cats, the black and white kitty that visited cottage 65 was named Oreo by the grand children. Lovely pool, grills and picnic tables... More

Very relaxing and comfortable. Historic. Out of tourist fray, but close to shops, beaches and other activities with vehicle. Experience the real Hawaiii, unless your looking for the Hyatt Resort type experience. Relax and have your morning coffe before your hectic day or have mimosa and relax for the morning. Very friendly people in Waimea. We had a great time.... More

Delightful beyond words. The ocean front cottages were a step back in time. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean and the fragrance of paul aria blossoms outside our window. Beautiful grounds and ocean side pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Private, individual plantation cottages set on a historic 27-acre coconut plantation in a beachside setting close to Kauai's famous Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon. Each self-contained cottage has been fully restored with modern appliances, full kitchens, and amenities. The simple, comfortable charm, genuine history and beautiful grounds allow guests to enjoy a unique experience unlike any other in the islands. Waimea Plantation Cottages offers beautiful settings for Wedding Celebrations, Anniversaries, Family Reunions, and Corporate Business meetings. Note: The restaurant will be closed temporarily as we remodel and transition the restaurant to a new restaurant operator and will re-open in mid-to-late fall of 2013. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience. During this transition, we suggest trying some of the other dining options in Waimea Town such as Wrangler's Steak House. But do come and try our new restaurant once it reopens! ... more   less
