Waimea Plantation Cottages - Review
Enjoyed the cottage very much, but be careful because dirt gets tracked in easily. The cottage itself was a little old feeling, but I enjoyed the number of windows they have. Waking up every morning was my favorite part of the day because the views were amazing. Loved being close to the beach, and the environment was great. Great place to get away from our busy lives, and I would definitely stay here again. Location is about 30 minutes away from the canyon depending on how slow the driver is in front of you, lol. My wife and enjoyed staying here, and would highly recommend this place to others.
South Side Retreat
This was our first Trip to Kauai and our 10 year Anniversary. The cottage we stayed in #54 was lovely. They are a bit dated, and the couches/chairs were not very comfortable, but the beds were great. We will be back for sure.

We’ll be back
A relaxing setting, simple straight forward accommodations AND you can hear the ocean waves.
Although this is not a swimming beach it’s great to have the ocean literally steps away from your back porch.
Hidden gem in the sleepy little town of Waimea
Very happy with our 4 night stay there in May 2018. Quaint cottages that were well equipped. The shower pressure was the best I’ve ever experienced. We’re early risers, so the roosters never bothered us. We did have a visiting cat who would sleep on our patio chair, which didn’t bother us at all. We enjoyed her visits and encouraged her return with food.
