Welcome to waimea plantation cottages

Experience the serenity of Kauai, Hawaii

Embrace the spirit of aloha at Waimea Plantation Cottages - an oasis of calm in the heart of one of Kauai's most distinctive regions. Our secluded resort is set on 43 oceanfront acres of lush tropical landscaping. Settle into one of our 59 one-to five-bedroom, authentic, heritage plantation homes which feature garden or ocean views. The cottages were built in the late 1880s to 1930s. Lovingly refreshed, the cottages still retain their rustic charm; each offers a fully equipped kitchen and private lanai.

Cool off with a swim in the oceanfront pool, play lawn games or relax in one of the hammocks around the property.

While not swimmable, our private beach is perfect for walking; wander the two-mile expanse of black sand and feel your worries melt away.

Sample local, seasonal dishes and the island’s tastiest BBQ at Chicken in a Barrel before heading out to explore the area – from the awe-inspiring Waimea Canyon and the Swinging Bridge at Hanapepe to water sports, hiking, cycling and countless other outdoor activities. Consider hosting your wedding or business retreat with us, and treat your guests to the experience of a lifetime. Whatever your reason for joining us, rest assured that total rejuvenation awaits.

Feels Like Home

The perfect stay-cation! We love the cottages...super comfortable, and great to spend time with friends and family. Made meals together, lounged a the pool, played lawn games. Super great time! Definitely coming back soon!

Discovered the Aloha of yester year

Wonderful property to slow down, unwind and enjoy the trade winds in a beautiful and unique setting. The grounds are well maintained and have many lovely old trees throughout as well as hammocks for snoozing.

Gorgeous!

Such a special place. I love how they have renovated the old plantation cottages while maintaining the integrity of the buildings and the feeling of old Hawaii. We visited with another family and stayed in two cottages right across from each other. Beautiful lawn, pool, bbq's hammocks, great amenities. Beautiful beach front location, close to Waimea Canyon. Highly recommended!
