I've been to various places in the Hawaiian Islands over the years. I have stayed in resorts, hotels, condos etc. This was truly the loveliest place that I have stayed. Located just off the main highway around Kaua'i, and on the way to Waimea Canyon, this little piece of paradise is wonderful. Each cottage has it's own personality, and history.... More

Loved the plantation cottages! Upgraded our room to a two bedroom, two bath with kitchenette and a large porch! Beautiful landscaping and very accommodating staff. Room was clean, tidy and had both large screened windows/doors as well as AC. Pool is simple but perfect. Beach can be seen from the lobby. Has a great vintage 20's vibe. Perfect choice if... More

It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. We had 2 nights, cottage 57 so the benefit of an ocean view. Decent size cottages with kitchen, parking space, air con only in the bedroom. Quite basic but that's the rustic style they are trying to uphold. Perfect location for the Waimea Canyon. Excellent helpful staff, beautiful green grounds, outdoor pool,... More

We absolutely loved our stay! The staff was amazing and friendly, the cottage was clean and we could see the ocean from our bedroom when we woke up each morning! It was the most heavenly, tropical, beautiful place we could have ever spent our honeymoon!!! And we will most definitely be back!!!

Looking to relax, and experience "Hawaii" This is the Place. I LOVE Kauai, it is what Hawaii was like when my dad lived there in the 40’s. The authentic plantation cottages were moved to the property from various sugar cane plantations. Still bearing the names of the families that lived in them. They are well maintained, with new kitchen appliances,... More

The property is lovely, but we happened to come during a hot spell, the air conditioning in the bedroom wasn't sufficient to keep up with the heat. While it ran it was too loud to sleep, and it was too hot to sleep without it. The pool is straightforward and the beach is not safe to swim in. Waimea is... More

This was a long-overdue vacation and though this looked like our kind of place, I worried we might miss the resort experience. Luckily, I went with my gut...we loved the cat that lived under the porch, our clean, white sheets, our small kitchen, huge bathrooms, and the beautiful grounds and view. Ceiling fans and landscaping and friendliness of staff were... More

From the first moment wi felt the special energy of the place. Sitting on our own veranda and surrounded by old Banyan and Mango trees was an outstanding experience. We saw some most beautiful sunsets and loved playing shuffleboard in the twilight. We couldn´t have chosen better!

We spent 3 lovely days at "our" cottage, it was peaceful, serene, great ocean views AND we wish we were still there! After being at Princeville with no A/C, having that in our bedroom was so welcomed. This side of the island is even more quiet than the other side, if you want a quick entrance to the canyon, this...

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
