A 30-acre historic property on Kauai's west coast, Waimea Plantation Cottages is a step back in time. Lovingly restored vintage houses are outfitted with period furnishings in rattan, wicker and mahogany. Each cottage is uniquely decorated and offers its own charm. While a handful of cottages are oceanfront, most are set among the coconut palm and banyan trees, fronting graceful manicured lawns. A pool and PlayStation 3 add contemporary comforts, but the draw here is a feeling of being transported to a simpler, quieter time.


  • Kauai's west coast, which serves as a gateway to Waimea Canyon, Koke'e State Park, and raft and kayak tours along the iconic Na Pali Coast


Restored one- to five-bedroom vintage homes from Kauai's plantation era are clustered about the 30-acre Waimea Plantation Cottages property. Period furnishings and architectural details evoke a bygone era and exude romance. For larger families or groups, top choice is the Managers House, a 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom oceanfront home with AC in the master bedroom. The five-bedroom Kruse House, built circa 1920, was moved to this property in 2002. It is fully air-conditioned and each bedroom has a private bath.

Property features

Those looking for a place to relax and recharge in utterly peaceful surroundings will see this historic property as paradise. Plantation-era cottages set the tone, aided by inviting hammocks beneath the trees. Waimea Plantation Cottages isn't the place for exuberant nightlife, though the on-site pub sometimes brings in local talent to complement its handcrafted brews. The antithesis of activity and action, there's a slow-down-and-breathe ethic here -- in the quiet, at the pool. While the black-sand beach is not for swimming, Kekaha Beach, five minutes away, has white sand and a lifeguard.


  • Overall ambiance of idyllic restfulness
  • Authentic sense of Kauai history
  • A 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom Managers House
