Waimea Cottages is a nice getaway and the old nostalgic feel of the cottages is a real bonus in my book. Things are clean and sufficient. Love the big porches/lanais of some of the cottages. Just a relaxing easy place to stay ....and beautiful vegetation/grounds around the cottages.. Try it...you wont regret

In non Covid times, this is pretty pricey, though more reasonable now. They waived the “resort fee” for which there never is and never has been any kind of service. All in all, a very serene place to stay. I had only breakfast in the restaurant. It combined poor service with mangled food. Maybe it gets better later in the day.

Could not be better. Wonderful peaceful property. The grounds and trees ae amazing. We stayed four nights in Oceanfront and loved every minute of our stay. The only sounds were the waves and the birds. Already made another reservation!!
