The Waimea Plantation Cottages are so unique it will stay in your memories forever. The setting is picturesque, with gorgeous cottages scattered on well maintained grounds full of fruit and flower trees. Time completely stops at the resort and you find yourself truly resourcing. The staff is gracious and competent. The pool is great. The surf on the beach was a bit rough to swim, but having the ocean right there is a treat, and Kauai has so many great beaches anyway! The proximity to the Waimea Canyon Drive was perfect for us and walking to town was great too. Access to laundry is amazing! The only thing that was missing was food options at the resort – we wish we had been able to at least have breakfast there – but that’s nowhere near a deal breaker and we will go back for sure! Also, bring earplugs to sleep through the roosters’ cries…
Blissful stay at Waimea Plantation
We spent 6 days here with our 1 & 3 year olds and loved every minute. The grounds are stunning and the bungalows are perfectly spacious and rustic. Everything is very well kept and service was great. We slept incredible with the sound of the ocean. Can’t wait to be back.

Kauai.. my home away from home
Wonderful place to stay. Very reasonably priced and because you have your own cottage, you can pretend that you own it. Location is away from the hustle and bustle of Poipu so very quiet.
All surrounding areas are easily accessible.
Little cottage by the sea
What’s not to love about this place? It’s the real deal, old Hawaii at its best. You will go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean and trade winds, and wake up to the calls of indigenous birds. You will smell the blooming plumeria and feel the sweet Aloha spirit. If you want to relax and be with nature, come here. We walked on a deserted beach at night under the moon and a sky full of stars! We did not swim in the ocean here, it’s brown from the canyon, but there are wonderful beaches near bye. Our favorite was Salt Pond Beach. I feel so grateful for our time at Waimea Plantation Cottages. Thanks to the wonderful staff who keep this gem running.
Out on the road looking for a new place
My family has stayed at Waimea Plantation cottages several times in the past.
Each time we were pleased with both our treatment and the accommodations. It seemed wise to make reservations here for 3 days of R&R after an interesting but at times hectic vacation in Vietnam, then head home to the Midwest. We made the reservations in January of 2017.
After 16 hours of flight time, 4 airports, retrieving our luggage, getting a car, driving to Waimea we walked into the reception area at Waimea only to be told our reservations had been canceled for the three night stay. We had our confirmation number, no one told us just how the cancellation occured and we were never informed of the cancellation. We had a confirmation for 1 bedroom ocean view by the pool. They told us we “could not have that unit, but a two bedroom was available” and they would allow us to “have it at the same price”. I said “we would like to look at it first”. When we drove to this unit, people were trying to do a rush cleaning job, as it seemed no one had been in this unit for a while. It was a long way from the ocean, absolutely no view and across from the their public laundry. Now its 5:00 pm and here we are, a bedroom we did not need, overlooking the laundry, in a hastily cleaned unit, the floors still wet and no view. We declined this unit knowing full well it was 5:00 pm and we may very well have to sleep in car that night. We drove a long way, tried to get in at several places and finnaly found a place, ironically – with an ocean view and all the bells and whistles we enjoy and had always been provided by Waimea. We have a new favorite place in Kaui.
