Sigh.... This place was picturesque but the cottages are just pretty to look at. Rooms are ill-equipped for standard expectations of a "perfect location" as your website describes. Remember: we still have to sleep while on vacation.

If you want to relax and unwind this is the place to do it. Very quiet. This is not the place for water activities because the beach is not really swimmable. The pool is rather small. The cottages are charming and clean.

This place was incredibly comfortable and lovely. The people were down to earth and welcoming. Aaron at the front desk gave us incredible advice about where to go and what to do. We definitely recommend this place for people who like to chill. It's close to the Waimea Canyon which is great for hiking!

Actually, I stayed here many, many years ago before Trip Advisor was in existence. If changes have been made, I can only imagine they were to enhance the atmosphere. Charming, nostalgic and historical, this place was a delight. Each home retained original grin the plantation family who lived in it, yet it was modern and clean. At night, you could...

Great location, right on the beach. Great staff, Aaron was very sweet and helpful. Each cottage was unique and the showers were huge. We booked our stay through Pleasant Hawaiian and they gave us only trouble.

Visiting Wimea Plantation Cottages is more of an experience rather than a stay at a resort.....the moment you drive up to the main building office you are struck with the peaceful tranquility that says "this is the true Hawaii"......the staff are amazing...they treat you like family.....in particular, Buna, who offered to teach our sons to surf in his time off....which...

Lovely vintage cottages, warm staff, beautiful landscaping. Pool is small but right on beach. Can't swim on this beach but an easy drive to swim able beaches. Great little town nearby with Japanese market. Lots of history!

Good location for seeing Waimea Canyon. Close to Po'ipu without the high cost. Sort of far from the action on east and north coasts. Nice place to stay . View of the ocean, has a nice pool. Beach has no lifeguard, large current

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Private, individual plantation cottages set on a historic 27-acre coconut plantation in a beachside setting close to Kauai's famous Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon. Each self-contained cottage has been fully restored with modern appliances, full kitchens, and amenities. The simple, comfortable charm, genuine history and beautiful grounds allow guests to enjoy a unique experience unlike any other in the islands. Waimea Plantation Cottages offers beautiful settings for Wedding Celebrations, Anniversaries, Family Reunions, and Corporate Business meetings. Note: The restaurant will be closed temporarily as we remodel and transition the restaurant to a new restaurant operator and will re-open in mid-to-late fall of 2013. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience. During this transition, we suggest trying some of the other dining options in Waimea Town such as Wrangler's Steak House. But do come and try our new restaurant once it reopens! ... more   less
