High quality accomodation with character
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waimea Plantation Cottages. It was great to stay somewhere that was full of character as well as meeting our expectations of cleanliness and service. And having a fun restaurant on site was great as well.
Relax, recharge.....Old Hawaii at its Best!!
I’m originally a Kauai girl and if anyone asks where to stay, I always recommend Waimea Plantation Cottages if you want a real family friendly, relaxed, old Hawai’i atmosphere. My family stays there every time. The sun setting over Ni’ihau is just another reason “lucky we live Hawai’i”
Spent 10 days at this resort, absolutely awesome holiday, staff were great and can’t wait to return. Great location, cottage was clean and comfortable, close to amenities. Even the chickens were pleasant to deal with, lol!
Fantastic place - just not a swimming beach
We loved Waimea Plantation Cottages and will absolutely come back. OUTSTANDING value as these are entire houses and can easily hold groups of 4-6 or more (depending on size.) If you are looking for rustic charm and peace and quiet = this is the place. The accommodation is restored plantation bungalows and one can experience the feeling of a bygone era. The location is just outside Waimea town (easily walk-able to Jo Jo’s Shave Ice and the markets and other stores.)Also a great jumping off point for hiking or exploring Waimea canyon or for cruising on the Na Pali coast.Only drawback is that the beach is not really a swimming beach. Water is naturally brown from the Waimea River outflow and no waves. That said, it has AMAZING drift wood and miles of black sand perfect for beach picnics, jogging, horseriding or sunbathing. The onsite Chicken BBQ place is outstanding as well. Cannot recommend enough.
Waimea is a nice, quiet town at the base of the Waimea Canyon. The Plantation Cottages are wonderful; perfect for relaxing and getting a more authentic Hawaiian vacation than at large hotel properties.
