Waimea Plantation Cottages
We had visitors staying with us at our north end house. Great excuse to vacation on the west side at a location we had looked at for many years, the Waimea Plantation. 4 of us stayed in a two bedroom garden view cottage. Very well appointed, incredible covered porch, right on the water, restaurant on the property (not a whole lot of choices in the immediate area - kitchen adequate to cook for yourself, if you like - we just did takeout to our cottage). Overall awesome experience.
Wished we had stayed longer
Quaint, laid back, a throwback to a simpler place in time... in a nutshell our stay at Waimea Plantation Cottages after six previous trips to the islands was the most relaxing and enjoyable stay my wife and I have experienced. If you're looking for a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of of more touristy resorts on the southern coast of Kauai look no further. We're already looking forward to our next visit and next time we'll be spending more than three nights.
Great location for exploring Waimea Canyon
The cottages were well located to let us easily explore Waimea Canyon for two days. Each cottage was some distance from another so there was a great deal of privacy. The grounds were pleasant and it was a short distance to the beach for evening and morning walks. Loved the earplugs issued when we arrived for the wild roosters. They are everywhere in Hawaii, so this is not a unique situation. Kitchen was well appointed so that we could have cooked had we chosen to. We did enjoy the convenience of the two on site restaurants in the main building. The history of this place is also fascinating.
It was the perfect quiet location for relaxing away from the hustle and bustle. Cute little town nearby with restaurants and grocery store. Wonderful hiking and fishing. Would highly recommend. Has a lovely through back retro vibe. Old Hawaii. Loved it!!!!!
You will want to stay here
If the resort atmosphere has you bummed out and isn’t your speed, this is your place. We stayed at the Lindsay Faye house at Waimea Plantation and we felt spoiled. This quaint but spacious home transported us back when old Hawaii homes had their charm and subtle beauty. It felt like we were miles from our nearest neighbor and only the ocean and birds were the sounds we heard- no traffic, no screaming kids or obnoxious neighbors. Peace and serenity. The grounds were emaculate and not overly manicured- it was kept but natural. Napping happened frequently outdoors on the lounger as the warm air and breeze was comforting. Each sunset, a direct walk to the beach led us to our spot with Mai Tais in hand to soak it in. Beds were perfect and the walk in shower was so welcoming. Did I mention the outdoor shower tucked under the backyard tree and plumeria? The pool was closed for renovation at the time we were there. Restaurant was terrific for bbq and salads- super cold beer too. Waimea is a perfect small town to find fresh fruit, smoothies, poke and friendly people. Rarely do we stay twice at a vacation accommodation spot. This will be our exception however.
