Excellent place to stay and relaxPosted May 31, 2014
Pros: The unique cottages and there charm
Location: There are several restaurant's in town and a couple gift shops. A drive up to Waimea Canyon is a must. Go in the morning can get cloudy in the PM.
Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages is a step back in time. If your looking for a resort/spa this is not the place to stay. These cottages were used by sugar cane workers in the late 1800 to early 1900's. Each cottage is unique. Kitchens have stove, frig and microwave. Plus all the small kitchen appliances, dishes, pots, pans and silverware. All you need to bring is food. It's a great place to relax at the end of the day of sightseeing. Wal-mart is close to the airport. They have most of your needs. But they don't have produce or meat. These you can by at the local grocery stores. There is a Costco. If your a Costco member. Gas is about 30 cents cheaper at Costco. There is two grocery stores in Waimea. The grounds are well kept with lots of trees. We read a few reviews regarding the chickens and the crowing. Yes, there's chickens with a few roosters crowing.

Hawaii close to the beachPosted Apr 28, 2014
Pros: The quiet and the Hawaii vibe. The restaurant/bar were an added benefit.
Cons: We experienced some of the cockroaches of Hawaii (to be expected), but not in between the sheets on the bed :( The exit fees were pretty high.
Location: Loved the proximity to Waimea. We did not lack for things to do. Be aware that if there is any issue on Hwy 50, turn around, do something else.
We loved the ambiance of the plantation. This is what Hawaii is really about! The prosimity to the beach was great and the quiet solitude added that much more (although having a cemetery right across the street might freak some people out, we thought it was quaint).

Do not swim in the ocean. Dangerous waters.Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: We like the peace & relaxed atmosphere .
Cons: Some of the cottages could use some updates......plumbing, kitchens, hardware etc.
Location: Location, location,
The pool very pleasant, the grounds clean and beautiful. The cottages all differ from very "rustic!" to simple, clean and comfortable. The ocean views are wonderful. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

The authentic "old Hawaii."Posted Apr 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
At first the spartan and "spare" cottage was unexpected. But these cottages are the real Hawaii, the original workers' cottages for the sugar plantation. The amenities are there, but the ambience is "old Hawaii." The grounds are glorious with tall coconut palms, banyans, and a black sand beach with a sunset to "live" for! The little Hawaiian doves coo all day long, and in the evenings you might hear the fluid musical song of the Sharma. It's not the Ritz, but it's truly paradise!!

Subtropical Paradise with Nostalgic CharmPosted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: Peace tranquility and position
Location: A car is essential if you want to travel conveniently. (there is a bus service)
Sugar planters detached cottages we'll spaced in well maintained grounds. Our cottage had a view of the sea . Within easy reach of good beaches and stunning views. It is one off the most relaxed holiday venue use we have been in the last two months around the world jaunt.

Great stayPosted Mar 28, 2014
Wonderful time. Great laid back setting. Decided to stay in and cook out because of the great views at dusk. Appliances a bit worn but did not detract from the experience. Will be back!

Quaint little cottagePosted Mar 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Although we only stayed only one night, our little cottage was a special treat and we wished we could of stayed longer. The cottage is like taking a step back in time. It is very basic, yet quaint and fun. The location of premises on the old sugar mill, is beautiful. There are huge fruit trees that cover the grounds and grassy area for taking great walks or walk the beach which is right there as well. Watch a beautiful sunset and take a picture off the historical old pier that sit near by. Staff at hotel is very helpful and accommodating.
