Sprawling on 30-acres of oceanfront decorated with coconut trees just outside of Waimea, the Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages & Spa is a combination of contrasting elements and styles. A collection of quite a few original sugar plantation cottages from the early 1900s, the homes exude a unique blend of history and elegance, island style, and luxurious comforts. The homes still have their original layout, style and wood but have been refurbished and are very clean.

Live in the lap of luxury lounging at the pool, napping in an ocean side hammock, indulging at the spa, and exploring the hotel's museum. Or you can go low key and local style here with a backyard barbecue in a yard with an old mango tree, watch the sunset of Ni`ihau from your porch while sipping a locally brewed beer from the on site Waimea Brewery, or make dinner in a classic plantation kitchen in your own home. The cottages range from a one bedroom home for $176 to a five bedroom ocean front home for $892.
