Now’s the time to stay at the Cottages
Some very good news for those of us living on Kaua‘i: My wife and I just realized that if we soon, want to visit the west side of Kaua‘i, we might be able to stay at The Waimea Plantation Cottages. These Cottages have always been heavily-booked by mainland visitors. Up to recent time, the Cottages have been closed to visitors. The workforce has been laid off, except for maintenance and Governor Ige has just revised the COPD-19 rules to now-allow mainland visitors to visit hotels in Hawai‘i, under very strict rules of two-week strict confinement virus incubation for mainland visitors.
We have not been able to visit the Waimea Plantation Cottages for almost two years now. We will be planning a week or two stay very soon… our chance for a real Holiday!
In the past … every time we return home to Princeville from a stay at the Cottages, we proclaim that we feel like we just came home from visiting some neat foreign country.
Waimea has so much to offer. Like the Chicken-in-the-Barrell Restaurant, on property, who will now do take-out breakfasts and their world-reknown pizzas. Then a short walk to the Mexican Taco shack by the Old Mill. Of course, there is Wranglers’ Restaurant and Big Save Market to bring home and cook in the cottage kitchens.
We enjoy nearby Salt Pond, Kekaha Beach and Polihale beach to find sea shells. Also walking the beach in front of the Cottages to the Kikiaola Boat Harbor brings up collectible drift wood and shells/rocks. Then a quick trip to Koke’e.
We’re sharing the holiday opportunity with North Shore friends in hope that the WPC management will offer us locals, kama‘aina rates.
Hey friends, just Google “Waimea Plantation Cottages” for more info.
Maybe we can soon get our “Ukulele na Haumana ‘O Hanalei” band organized to practice for our Queen Emma production at Koke‘e.
Just now occurred to me….parents of recent high-school Graduates of Waimea, Kauai’ and Kapa’a: how about graduation gifts of a couple of nights at WPC?
