Loved staying at this peaceful, relaxing place.

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: We enjoyed the beauty and the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: It's very dark at night. There is not enough lighting to find you way around at night.
Location: The beach wasn't good for swimming, but there is a nice pool and you don't have to go too far to a good beach. Also beautiful Waimea canyon is close.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The staff was helpful and friendly and our cottage was clean and comfortable. It was nice having our own kitchen so that we could cook if we wanted to. It was fun learning about the history of the place and the setting was beautiful.

Great place to stay for tourists & locals

Old, quaint plantation cottages on oceanfront property. Our cottage even had a claw foot tub. Close to surf spots and Polihale Beach Park.

If you need a true vacation from your busy urban life, come here and get absorbed into this place. You will enjoy the land, the sky, the stars, the sound of waves, and the the breeze at the balcony. I couldn't ask more.

Quirky, NOT a 'resort' hotel - thank heavens...

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: Wide open spaces, no fuss, totally quiet - apart from the ocean
Cons: Don't touch it....
Location: Far from the madding crowd, but close enough to everything: Kauai is not a big island. Great for self-catering but tolerably good eateries nearby.
When we arrived in our cottage it looked shabby and in need of a lot of renovation, but we then realised that that was precisely why it had such charm, and we would not only go back to this hotel but would request that cottage. Definitely a 'get away from it all' place.

Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are really happy to read that you enjoyed our "quirky" property. We really aim to provide our guests with a nostalgic glimpse into the simple life found at a sugar plantation where our cottages are located - and we're happy you enjoyed!

My family really enjoyed our stay at Waimea Plantation Cottages. The atmosphere felt marvelous! Our daughters felt so comfortable they did not want to leave. We will definitely recommend it to our family & friends, as well as, enjoy another stay in the near future.

A step back in time where tranquility becomes a wa

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: The feeling of old Hawaii
Cons: Nothing
Location: Hiking Waimea canyon is a must do Pohale beach is a view of paradise
Everything you need is provided albeit in a more rustic environment than your typical condo stays. It felt like we were visiting grandma's house in 1970, original latches, cupboards and all. The staff was great, the grounds beautiful and we left planning our next trip back.

Unique, historically preserved jewel of a hotel

Posted Apr 1, 2015
Pros: Quiet, beauty, charm and sunsets!
Beautiful, quiet setting, close to major natural wonders of Kauai, hiking, ocean activities. Family friendly. Super helpful staff. I guess not for those seeking a typical resort experience. Light years better in my book, though

So peaceful & serene

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Sand, sun, ocean and mountains, all within a short drive or walking distance. The historical town of Waimea is lovely to browse through. Just relax.
My son & I stayed in cottage #52 for a week in March 2015. Staff were wonderful, especially Aaron at the front desk. Our cottage was fully equipped and clean when we arrived. Even with neighboring cottages full, it was quiet and peaceful. I would go back in a heartbeat!
