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 with us, and treat your guests to the experience of a lifetime. Whatever your reason for joining us, rest assured that total rejuvenation awaits.

Childhood Memories Relived

Excellent stay! Waimea Plantation Cottages was such an enjoyable stay for us, reminded us of our childhoods growing up on O'ahu. The warm feeling of our childhood memories just swamped us (in a very good way). We grew up in those plantation type homes and the memories invoked filled our hearts. We didn't mind the drive to Waimea as it took us away from the busy resort areas. The peace and quiet was much appreciated! My husband didn't want to leave the porch, just wanted to sit there and enjoy the peacefulness of the property. We selected an ocean view cottage and it was relaxing. Will definitely return!

Family Golf Tournament

Great bar with beer taps for self service. Food was good and the large property is great for nice walks. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements. We had a three bed, two bath cottage with a large lanai to hang out on with the family. Grocery store close buy to get all you need should you choose to cook.

A Must if You are Visiting. Beats Renting a Condo.

I loved staying in my little cottage. What a fantastic property. Beautiful grounds, great views. Nice amenities. The cottage I stayed in had a very large bathroom and I appreciated that. The cover porch area was a nice touch. I love the separate little cottages with the green spaces. We had family that were also staying at the same time, it was great to be able to visit back and forth by just walking across the green space and yet have total privacy. I will definitely stay there again.
