Waimea Plantation Cottages, a Coast Resort


    E komo mai (welcome). Waimea Plantation Cottages, on the sunny Western shore of Kauai, welcomes you to a unique Hawaii vacation experience. Charming, authentic Hawaii plantation cottages dot the 43 tropically-landscaped acres stretching along a magnificent black-sand beach. Originally built in the late 1800s to 1930s, the one- to five-bedroom cottages have been lovingly refreshed. Each cottage is landscaped for privacy and coziness. The cottages feature comfortable Hawaii-style furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and private lanai. Each cottage has its own history and charm. Amenities include a two-mile long walking beach, oceanfront pool, parking at your cottage, on-property guest laundry, Wi-Fi, DVD player with recent movies, a casual on-property BBQ restaurant and bar, gift store, activity desk and juice and chilled water in the lobby.  Nestled in the idyllic town of Waimea, nearby the road to Waimea Canyon, our tropical oasis offers you a slower-paced Kauai where you can truly relax and enjoy your vacation.
