I highly recommend the Waimea Plantation Cottages. The Cottages are very cool and retro. The grounds are awesome with great ocean views. The weather is probably the best on Kauai and you can REALLY relax....

We loved the grounds and layout at Waimea Plantation Cottages. We stayed in Waimea to do some hiking in the canyon. If you are staying on this side of Kauai, this is the place. The cottage was clean and quaint and provides the privacy that you don't find in a condo. We loved sitting out on the porch while we...

May not be for everyone if you prefer luxury accommodations but definitely my preference. Three stays in 3 different cottages and enjoyed each one. Easy access to beach, pool and just relaxation on the porches and walking on the grounds. K-Joes, excellent foot and service. Great having the bar and restaurant on the grounds and to be able to enjoy...

Never could I have expected nor could have had a more perfect vacation than what I enjoyed at the Cottages. It is not a place for the pretentious, but if you desire a mellow experience in paradise, this is the place!

The cottage was lovely and very pittoresque. We felt like we were in Louisiana in Hawaii. The cottages are very near a black sand beach but no swimming is possible. The Breezeway is so beautiful and perfect for a good sunset !

I am a long-time lurker here at Tripadvisor but I had to come out hiding to write a review for the Waimea Plantation Cottages. It's incredible! Beautiful, historic grounds, staff full of aloha, and one of the overall most relaxing resort experiences I've had. I came to Kauai on business, and Aaron at the front desk was beyond helpful when...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. Quaint cottages. Beautiful grounds. Lovely sunsets on beach. Found myself referring to it as home. Located 30 minutes from Waimea Canyon. Roosters crowing in the middle of the night.

Sitting on the pourch listening to the ocean and the birds was the best part of our trip. Our cottage was very comfortable and charming. Much nicer then we expected. We had lunch at one of the high-end hotels and couldn't believe how many people there were. We were very glad to get back to our peaceful cottage. Every staff...

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
