Not a place to rent at all. The unit desperately needs to be updated. Could not stay in the unit, not safe or inhabitable. There are 2 window AC's in the bedroom in which 1 did not work. The unit decking needs to be replaced and the overall property is a mess, and so hot it was impossible to be...

Keep it as it is. See earlier comments and in the guest book in Room 47. Great job in keeping the original buildings and feel of the plantation I grew up in. Thank you to the Faye family that started this endeavour to preserve our plantation legacy. Don't put "modern" buildings in the area. The younger generation needs to know...

This was a family vacation this trip - I really appreciate the non-touristy feel of this place. It's more authentic than any place else on either island. Slow pace, very very comfortable, peaceful and healing.

I saw this property over 15 years ago and have been waiting for the perfect time to stay there. We were celebrating our 35 anniversary and spent our last two nights in this wonderful setting. Our cottage was built in 1905; yes they have the history of each cottage on hand! The black sand beach (Driftwood Beach) was a SHORT...

We stayed 2 nights in a cottage right by the sea. Really magic, the beach was ours to swim early in the morning and at dusk. We could dine in the patio facing the ocean, enjoying awesome sunsets. Appliances: convenient kitchen and washing machine nearby

I just stayed at the plantation for 3 nights with my sister. The space itself is lovely, however there were a few hiccups along the way. The most notable is the lack of service. Firstly our booking was incorrect. We booked and paid a premium for two double rooms, to then find one double bed, and one single room. This...

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
