Great place to visit. Had fun walking around and visiting the shops and learning about the history of the plantation. Folks in the shops are friendly and eager to share.

We came during lunchtime and did the rum tasting. It was fun, the grounds are the highlight and we enjoyed wandering around.

Meant for kids who want to ride the train. The building is very pretty. There were a few shops but nothing unusual just tourist things.

It's a lovely property with shops, rum tasting, cafe/restaurant and a train ride through fruit orchards and animal farm. The train ride is perfect for young children as you can see lots of barn animals along the way. The train also stops so you can...More

We went and rode the plantation train and it was a fun way to spend an hour with the family. My only suggestion is don't sit in the first car because the exhaust from the engine is suffocating.

Loved the shops, train tour, and later went back for dinner with family. Dinner pricey but it was expected. Delicious meal and special time to spend with my mom, brother, and daughter. Really liked the Rum Tasting Room!

You can write an email to them, they answer quickly. The plantation is large and I feel confident that they rent it out for special occasions especially in the winter when they are only open a few days a week.

The Luau and owner's dinner is the best show a great dinner that we had in Kauaii. The train ride would be good for children. You can walk around the site. Yes the dinner and Luau are perfect for people of all ages.
Is this fun for just families or do you think a couple in their 60's would enjoy it? Is there more than one restaurant here? Is Gaylord's a restaurant that only serves food from India or what kind of food do they serve? Thank you!
