For an island get away, it is hard to beat Plantation Cottages. Rustically beautiful, you can feel your stress level drop when you arrive on the land. Highly recommended for tourists or Kauaians who want to have a staycation.
The Old Hawaii Feeling
This is an excellent place to stay, if you want to just relax and experience the old Hawaii of the pass. The cottages have everything you need, its comfortable and the staff are great. Just beware of the chickens but that is for all of the island of Kauai , its everywhere.
Family vacation stay
Wonderful setting. Needs to get a restaurant and bar on site. The sleep quality is great when the roosters aren’t crowing. It is still one of the best places to get married or have a family reunion. You have to go elsewhere for the beach.

Website deceptive in presenting rooms with accuracy in terms of which ones were renovated and which ones aren’t. I paid for a two bedroom ocean view with a/ c in both bedrooms. I was told at check-in that we were ” upgraded” to a 3 bedroom. I was like hmmmm? Ok….but I don’t need a 3 bedroom, a 2 bedroom is fine. Not sure if my paid reservation was given to someone else? The 3 bedroom upgrade only had one room with a/c. We definitely needed it the nights we were there and all of us ended up sleeping in the same room each night cuz it was too stinkin’ hot. So it would’ve been more cost effective for us to have just rented a 1 bedroom instead. Very expensive for what’s provided all around. Pool is nice. Housekeeping staff friendly and I give them props as I didn’t see one roach or centipede the whole time in my cabin. There’s a front desk person whose from Stockton, CA (can’t remember his name) very friendly. A different front staff person a female and local however was not friendly or helpful at all. When I went to inquire about something at the desk she treated me as if I was a absolute bother to her and like I was asking the dumbest question she’s ever had to answer. Of which it quite possibly was…but for what this place costs per night and a tacked on ” resort fee” one should at a minimum pretend that you don’t think I’m and idiot.
This is run by ” Coast” properties now. It used to be run by Aston. It’s really gone down hill, you don’t get what appears on the website, nor do most cottages look as great as their lobby, as reassured by others also staying there when we got to talking at the pool. Never staying there again. I go often to this side of the island because all of my family lives on the west side. So to the rude lady at the front desk…no, I’m not just a “dumb haole,” But am “hapa”, and if I wasn’t? You should still treat me like a local. Got aloha?

Relaxing and Private Atmosphere
The ground is beautiful and well maintained. Each cottage is spread out except for the duplex ones giving ample privacy for the guests. Once you’re in the hotel, it’s very relaxing despite the roosters crowing. It didn’t bother me.
The cottage, though old, was charming. Our duplex studio was basic but it’s got a full kitchen. Even though we couldn’t see the beach from our balcony, the beautiful ground with fragrant flowers and manicured lawn makes up for it.
The bed and the pillows could be more firm as they were quite lumpy.
Food is limited in Weimea and seems to cater more to the Hawaiian taste than western. But again, you can certainly cook in your cottage.
