An ocean front view, a hammock, and a lanai. What else does one need in life? Cottage #36, constructed for a Kaua’i plantation in 1910, is now a two bedroom oceanfront unit at the Coast Waimea Plantation Cottages in Waimea, Kaua’i, Hawai’i. Like on much of rural Kaua’i, rooster crows act as natural alarm clocks in the pre-dawn hours, but guests who like to sleep in can collect complimentary earplugs at the front desk.
