Fantastic place to stay! Our cottage was great, king size bed and lots of room in the bathroom! ! Full kitchen and a view of the ocean from our Lanai! The beach was lovely even though it was too rough to swim. Beautiful sunsets! Lots to do here as well or not! Can't wait to come back!

We stayed at the Manager's Cottage. 5 bedroom 5 bath. Housed 12 of us comfortably. Near beach front and removed from the rest of the cottages it was a dream. We are already planning a trip back there later this year

It was awesome as usual. Amazing staff. It's our yearly mini vacation even though we live on the island on the Eastside, staying out on the Westside is a treat for us. We will definitely stay again. It is truly "Plantation" style setting.

One positive of being acquired by Coast Hotels that I've noticed thus far - you can finally get points/rewards based on your stay! Finally! Laundry room on the east end of the property is also a wonderful amenity as the main laundry facility was always busy.

It is great when you can just travel to the other side of the island and have a get-away. We are both around people 24/7 so it was nice not to have to engage with anyone. It was on our terms. The staff was a true reflection of "Aloha". They were quick to help when asked. Very relaxed atmosphere. Very...

I love the Waimea Plantation Cottages! I prefer the funkiness of the cottages over the soullessness of resorts. During my three Kauai visits I stayed in four cottages (it's been a combination of work and pleasure). They are unique and quirky. If you can't deal with roosters, chickens, geckos, lizards, toads, and overall earthiness, go to Poipu or Princeville and...

Great place to experience the real Hawaii and reconnect with family. Always makes us feel as though we are home. You can't buy this. Enjoy the porches and the early morning strolls along the beach and then the coffee that can you get at the lobby when you finish the walk or read a book or newspaper on the porch....

Experience an earlier era of Kauai on the west end of the island in Waimea . These simple wood cabins are quiet and peaceful and a world-apart from the resort properties and condos found to the north and east of the island. There's a pool by the beach with plenty of trees for shade, mangos and wild chickens everywhere. The...

Reviewed June 13, 2015

Nice peaceful location next to the ocean. Private cottages with kitchens good for cooking. This is a piece of Hawaiian history, using refurbished old sugar plantation worker housing. Don't expect it to be polished chrome and granite like a fancy hotel, but expect to have a nice peaceful stay. Very convenient for hiking in Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park.

We stayed in a 1 bedroon cottage (cottage 46), the smallest accomodation. The cottage consisted of a small living room with a flat screen TV and two comfortable chairs, a bedroom with a queen size bed (I think) and a kitchen with a table for four. Nothing fancy and very quaint. Everything was spotless, but this is a historic property...

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

“We booked an superior ocean view cabin. It doesn't cost much more and it was lovely. We weren't right on the beach (that's another category up) but the view was unobstructed and framed perfectly in the distance by coconut palms.”
