About Waimea - On the southwest shore of the beautiful island of Kauai, lies the historic seaport town of Waimea. It literally means “red water” - named after the color of the water in the bay due to the sediment from Waimea Canyon. The town of Waimea is full of charm and offers a relaxed atmosphere, making it an ideal destination for visitors wanting a slow-paced getaway and a taste of authentic Hawaii. What better way to experience Kauai’s laid-back western shore than by staying in this idyllic and friendly town. For accommodations, let Owner Direct Vacation Rentals provide you the best lodgings for a truly local feel during your trip.

Where to Stay & Why - When you book vacation rentals as your accommodation, like condo rentals and villa rentals, you’ll be surrounding yourself with the comforts of home and more - high-end furniture, separate and comfortable sleeping areas, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, an outdoor pool and deck surrounded with amazing views. You can also choose a vacation home that has a lanai or an ocean view. Some owners will even include extras like staples and seasonings in the kitchen, beach stuff like coolers, boogie boards, and a few sand toys, or access to beach clubs. Vacation rentals serve as a home-away-from-home that is worth it.

What to See & Do - Owner Direct’s accommodations place you in the heart of it all, so you’ll have easy access to golf courses, beaches, and attractions. Families will find kid-friendly activities here aside from the beach like Waimea Canyon, Na Pali Coast State Park, and Polihale State Park. Cultural venues include Kokee Natural History Museum and the West Kauai Technology and Visitor Center. If you have time, there’s The Roaring Sands, Alakai Wilderness, Waipo’o Falls, Pu’u Hinahina Lookout, and the Waimea State Recreation Pier.

Where to Eat & Drink - A variety of the restaurants are on the main drag, with something for every taste and budget. For a local treat, Jo-Jo’s offer 60 flavors of snow cones. Down the street is Wrangler’s Steakhouse that has some of the best steaks with a western theme. Other options are The Shrimp Station, Island Taco, and The Grove Cafe at Waimea Brewing Company. The coastline has many resorts that also offer dining options and entertainment.

How to Get Here & Getting Around - The closest major airport is in Lihue (LIH). Since Waimea is an off-the-beaten-path discovery, a rental car is the best way to get around and enjoy most of the sites.

When to Go - The weather shouldn’t be a deciding factor when booking your Waimea vacation rental since it’s pleasant all year round. Still, July to September are the warmest months.
