Rustic/charm in Waimea
We booked a large two bedroom ocean view cottage, it was charming and very clean. Beds were very comfortable. We really enjoyed the large patio and sat out there daily enjoying the view and ocean. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Morning coffee and juice in lobby area was very nice.

Living in the past
Overall we had a wonderful stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages even though it was for just one night. It felt like living during the late 1800′s but with some of the modern appliance, and entertainment equipment. Here’s a good tip, don’t park under or near a mango tree as it can make a dent in your car.
We stayed in cottage 67! It was great!. We can see the water from here and hear the waves breaking. The area is very well kept and beautiful! There are only 2 cottages between us and the pool, then the beach. There are hammocks everywhere! The water is not swimmable here, but you can walk on the beach. There is a pier maybe .3 miles down the beach that is nice to walk to. We stayed 4 nights and were allowed to rent 2 movies included in our price (like redbox). They had bocce ball, croquet, and shuffle board you could borrow. There are pool towels in the room to take to the pool (or beach as long as you return them). There is AC in the bedrooms!!!! The windows open easily in the other rooms and there are fans to keep it cool. The kitchen has appliances, pots and pans (only a medium sized skillet). No oil or salt or stuff like that. Nice porch with chairs, we sat out there for 4 hours one day. There are two grocery stores in Waimea (< .5 miles away). Lots of restaurants too, although most close earlier. Several stay open later though.
Our Regular Stop
We love the slow pace of the cottages compared to the resort stays. The grounds are beautiful and quiet, and the cottages are clean and comfortable.
Used to have a restaurant on the property, but it’s gone, which makes the grounds seem very empty.
