About Waimea Vacation Rentals
Our Waimea vacation rentals offer luxury and relaxation on Kauai's scenic southwestern shore. Waimea is a relatively quiet town with a quaint charm reflected in its many historic structures reminiscent of the old West.
Things To Do
Just up the hill from Waimea town is the spectacular Waimea Canyon with spectacular views and an abundance of hiking trails into the canyon as well as along the coastal cliffs with stunning vistas of the Na Pali Coast and the blue Pacific beyond.
Hofgaard Park serves as Waimea's town square and is the site of the Captain James Cook Monument which memorializes Waimea as the place the explorer first came onto land establishing for the first time Western contact with the Hawaiian Islands.
The Waimea Historic Walking Tour begins at the West Kauai Technology and Visitor's Center (which features a museum) and then explores the town's history including stores and churches.
Eat and Shop
Waimea town offers a variety of shops and places to eat as well as a grocery store. Exceptional and yet affordable family dining can be found at the Grove Cafe at Waimea Plantation Cottages which offers signature Heavenly Tropicals cocktails along with Hawaii-brewed beers. Their creative Plantation menu emphasizes fresh seafood and farm-to-table greens with creative tropical desserts.
For some local flavor try Island Taco which makes an impressive Seared Wasabi Ahi burrito and great tacos such as the popular kalua pork and the cajun mahi mahi.
A rental car is recommended when staying in Waimea vacation rentals giving you easy access to the area's great beaches and attractions from Polihale to Waimea Canyon as well as the Coconut Coast and Kauai's lush and verdant north shore
