Quaint cottages - beautiful grounds - quiet evenings oceanfront
We (family of 4) were looking for a not-so-touristy spot and this was it. The property is very near the road(s) to Waimea canyon, to the boat landing for Na Pali Explorer, and close enough for us (@30 min) to Poipu and a wide variety of restaurants and shopping. We didn’t mind the drive, and were usually on our way home from a day out and stopping in Poipu was a good option. Not many restaurants out near the Cottages.
Our two-bedroom cottage, the “Bull Pen”, was quaint, clean and very well maintained, with a nicely equipped kitchen where we prepared breakfast and evening snacks. Perfect for a family.
Super-friendly front desk ladies. We had asked for extra fans, and they were in the cottage when we arrived. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed sitting on the spacious porch at our cottage listening to the ocean. The roosters will wake you up around sunrise, so if you want to sleep in, this might not be the place for you.
We did eat here one night, and it was ok. Chicken-in-a-barrel BBQ. It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly!
A perfect stay in the quiet town of Waimea. Cottages right on the beach, with porches that look out over the water for both sunrise and sunset viewing. Pool and BBQ’s, kitchens, and a restaurant on-site make it possible to never leave. Direct access to Waimea Canyon, and a stones throw from the Kikiaola small boat marina for trips to Na Pali coast.
Good Place to Stay on the South Shore
Our cottage was small, but nicely furnished, and about 40 yards from the beach. The grounds have a few pairs of deck chairs, plus 3-4 hammocks for guest use. If you want one of these to watch a sunset from, get there early, there are more guests than chairs. Inside the cottage, the kitchen was geared for cooking simple meals, and we appreciated the full-size refrigerator. The bedroom had a nice-sized closet, but no drawers for storage. The bed was pretty comfortable for a hotel bed, not as rock-hard as most places have. There is a water spigot outside the cottage for de-sanding of feet and shoes. There are laundry facilities onsite, which are free to use for guests. We enjoyed a meal at the barbeque restaurant onsite, and in town about a mile away, there are 2 grocery stores plus several other restaurants to choose from, Waimea is about an hour’s drive from Lihue airport. It is also an short drive to Waimea Canyon and the many hiking trails, Polihale beach (westernmost accessible beach), various boat cruises to the Napali coast, a coffee plantation, and other attractions.

Great for a couples retreat
My wife and I spent our 20th Anniversary here and everything was perfect. The one thing I wish they had was a hot tub which is pretty standard at many high end locations. The grounds were kept nice and the staff was great. I will be back with my family.

Lovely cottage stay!
The location is excellent to reach hiking and the driftwood beach. We loved the well kept grounds right on the beach. The cabin was lovely.
More rustic than newer bungalows but perfect for our needs. Great country feel waking up to roosters and watching the sunrise from the driftwood beach.
