Waimea Plantation Cottage E
If you are looking for an amazing place to stay on Kauai where sunshine is guaranteed, service is exceptional, and crowds are negligible, Waimea Plantation Cottages is the place to choose. Our cottage was as described on VRBO, and the pictures were accurate. Because of the age of the cottage and the sea air, there was a slight sticky feeling to the kitchen cabinets and drawers, and the master shower showed signs of either mold, mildew, or discoloration. A little bit of attention or updating might be in order, but the overall feel of the cottage was great. The view could not have been better and the staff could not have been more helpful.

New favorite place to get away
Came here on the recommendation of a couple friends, and will definitely be back here again. Probably next year at this time I have been told. This facility fits the island perfectly. Everything is period correct, and fantastically maintained. Staff is extremely friendly, and always asking if there is anything you need, or they can do. If you are expecting polished gold taps, and computer controlled blinds and lights, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a fantastic place to relax, and enjoy the quiet, ocean views, this is the place. There is everything you need in the kitchen to prepare a christmas dinner, other than the food. Couldn’t ask for more.
Rustic Hawaiian Vibes
Our family spent a week over Christmas holidays at Waimea Plantation Cottages. This was our fourth stay in 25 years and I cannot recommend this beautiful place enough! If you are looking for an all inclusive resort with shopping malls, chain restaurants, and crowded beaches, WPC is not for you. But if you are looking for authentic Hawaiian history and culture, card games on the porch, peaceful, solo sunset walks, and a friendly, family atmosphere, I highly recommend it. Accommodating staff from the security guard who met us at midnight to show us to our room to the helpful front desk clerks. Activities included shuffleboard, hammock naps, barbeques, and fishing. Swimmable beaches are not far (Salt Pond and Kekaha beach were favorites). Lovely old-fashioned cottages with comfortable beds and retro-style furnishings. Hiking in Waimea Canyon. A good restaurant onsite would make it perfect, but we took advantage of the full kitchens and gas barbeques so it was fine. Yes there are roosters. We will definitely be back!
Heritage homes with spectacular setting...what a sunset!
We stayed in Unit #59, and the view form this ocean front heritage home was spectacular. There are many cottages on this property, so when booking, you should find out which home suits you best, but even if not on the ocean, there is plenty of room to hang and take in the views (whether on one of the hammocks or if you bring your own chairs & cocktails) which are amazing, especially the sunsets.
I will add that the staff at the guest registration desk were also super friendly and helpful, and were responsive to every question and request.
If you don’t require the most modern cottage facilities, then this is the place for you. If you do require the more modern facilities, then the view/setting will more than offset this factor.
I would highly recommend the Waimea Plantation Cottages, mostly for the setting in this cute little town in Kauai.

Nice little cottages
These are cute little cottages great for a relaxing vacation, within a short drive to boat & helicopter tours. Waimea Canyon is very close as well. The cottages are pretty expensive relative to the (lack) of luxury, but well kept and clean. We enjoyed out stay
