Not very quiet or clean

Posted Dec 22, 2016
The first cottage (SS14) seemed to be the last one standing among the ruins of old cottages with terrible views out of windows and next to animal shed of the adjacent neighborhood. Roosters were crowing all the time. We were able to move to a different cottage which was in a nicer location but the dining table was so sticky and filthy. It took scrubbing with soap many times before you see no more film of sticky filth on the paper towel... Their kitchen is not well-equipped either but the ground and location are quite nice.

Loved staying here and wish I stayed longer.

Posted Dec 15, 2016
Pros: Close to Waimea Canyon and Polihale beach.
Location: Polihale beach is one of the best beaches on the entire island. Kind of a long drive and it is a rough road (recommend 4x4) but well worth it.
I stayed in the studio with my girlfriend and this was perfect for us. Small kitchen with refrigerator, walking distance to the beach and hammocks to watch the sunset. Will definitely be staying here again.

Very nice. Perfect for our large group.

Posted Oct 29, 2016
Our three bedroom cottage was perfect for our large group. Each couple had their own bedroom. There were two full bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and dishes. Every-other-day housekeeping service was not too intrusive. We had an ocean view from our comfortable porch, and a short walk to the beach and pool. We would definitely stay here again.

The REAL Hawaii.

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Location: The beauty of Waimea is that it is NOT a tourist packed town. Waimea is the gateway to the Canyon and boats departing up the Napali coast.
The cottages and the plantation are like staying in old Hawaii. The cottages are simply furnished and comfortable with full kitchens. Not for the traveler that prefers the sterile, modern resort.

Wonderful quaint coastal cottage getaway

Posted Sep 25, 2016
We stayed in a wonderful quaint coastal one bed cottage. We had partial ocean views and a small lanai overlooking the fabulous green grounds. Easy access to all the hikes of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park as well as sunsets at the pier and Kekaha Beach. We mostly self catered as we wanted to chill out but town has plenty of good relaxed eateries.

Wanted a no stress getaway

Posted Sep 24, 2016
Pros: Quite, clean and comfy.
Cons: Sleep Number bed like mine at home but probably not possible. :-)
Location: Sleepy little town of Waimea is perfect with a small grocery store, a couple of quaint resteraunts and some great shaved ice.
Our cottage was right on the water. Sounds of the ocean and an occasional rooster were all we ever heard. Best stress less vacation ever.
