Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages, Waimea, Hawaii

This former sugar plantation has been converted into an inn with beachside pool on Kauai. Rent one of the renovated plantation houses with large porches and clapboard exteriors and interiors spread about a green lawn lined in coconut trees.

Field trip: Hike Waimea Canyon, or drive along the cliffs of the Na Pali Coast.

Night out: The 20-mile drive from Waimea to Poipu is worth it for wasabi-crusted snapper at the waterfront Beach House Restaurant.
