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.

Life at the Plantation

Posted Sep 16, 2016
Pros: The historical aspects, private setting, slower pace, cottage life, beautiful quiet beach, amazing views, well maintained outdoor space.
Location: Great small towns near by with art walks, bookstores, good food and a tremendous sense of community. Amazing parks with outdoor activity options.
This is a one of a kind walk into a historic plantation setting. Absolutely beautiful, traditional old Hawaii feel with comfortable modern accommodations.

Disappointed on 20th Anniversary

Posted Sep 15, 2016
Pros: We liked the location on the West side of the island. Secluded and low-key.
Cons: Better cottage descriptions online and actual views from all cottages so customers know exactly what they are booking.
Location: Hike the Waimea Canyon and spend time in the local shops and eateries. Island Taco is fabulous!
My husband and I booked an "ocean view" cottage for our 20th anniversary. Upon arrival, we were grossly disappointed in Cottage 64. The "ocean view" was at best "partial ocean view". You could see the ocean from the bedroom -- if you were laying down on the bed -- and when you walked out the front door. All other views were of the air conditioning unit and next door cottage. After I complained, we were moved to a two bedroom, "ocean front" cottage - wonderful! However, we were told after three nights we would have to move (due to a previous booking) but just across the street to Cottage 74. Fine. However, after three nights we were moved to Cottage D - the very last cabin on the plantation that felt as though it hadn't been used in decades. The cottage was a plywood box that smelled like mildew and body odor. There was only one air conditioning unit (in the very back of the cottage) which likely explains the foul odor. Overall, terrible experience and we just can't recommend it. The hassle of moving cottages was not relaxing and the staff didn't seem to mind the inconvenience caused by their misrepresentation of the "ocean view" cottage, even after I explained our very special occasion. If you do end up booking here, I would definitely call in advance to ensure you get what you pay for and not a "partial" result.
